Guys, it’s finally happened. I’m officially 40. I know, time flies! Well, I may be 40 but I feel like I’ve achieved a fair bit.

I’m a total Dyson lover. If there was a cult, I would be in it! We have two Dyson vacuums and fan and I love them all, so I was excited to review the Dyson Pure Hot+Cool Air Purifier. I was especially keen to try it out because both my daughter and I have eczema, plus I have asthma. Winter is always the worst time of year for us because the air is dry and the temp is cold.
