Buying a vacuum can feel a little bit like buying wine. Yes, one goes well with pasta and one cleans your floors, but hear us out. The prices can range from suspiciously low to insanely high, and it can be hard to know where the sweet spot is if you're not ready to shell out for a top-of-the-line Dyson. Luckily, there are plenty of mid-range and even inexpensive vacuum options that can keep your floors clean. But, as with wine, no one vacuum fits all needs. Ok, we may be stretching that metaphor a bit far — but think about it: just like certain wines go better with certain foods, certain vacuums work better for certain types of people. Everything from your preferred cleaning style to your home's size or setup and floor type can have an impact on what kind of vacuum you should buy. Sound stressful? Don't worry, we've done the hard work for you. Ahead, 15 vacuums that will clean your floors without blowing your [wine] budget.

This vacuum cleaner is really good for my long hair and my dog hair, the suction power is really good I am really satisfied with it. I chose the white color of this vacuum cleaner which has a very good look. The design of this cleaner is good, as well. The price is reasonable and affordable! My 1 bedroom apartment is not very big, so the cord length is enough to clean my whole apartment which really surprised me. In fact, the cord length of this vacuum cleaner is longer than the one that I used before. Also, the sound is not very loud than I expected.

A decade in, Huckberry is a go-to. April 8 marks the day that co-founders Andy Forch and Richard Greiner sent the very first Huckberry newsletter. One of the most comprehensive online retailers for men, Huckberry has been a go-to since that first email.
Tight, crunchy, and cheesy aren't adjectives we'd ever want to use to describe our hair, but it's exactly what we'd call the updos we wore back in the day. When weddings, graduations, and prom came around, an updo the size of a cornucopia was frequently involved — and so were one million bobby pins and copious amounts of extra-hold hairspray.In hindsight, stiff French rolls and Bumpit buns are hair trends we'd rather not repeat. (Although we wouldn't be surprised if they resurrect thanks to TikTok.) But, like French tips and bedazzled barrettes, updos have been given new life. Now there are so many cute ways to wear your hair up for special occasions — or just because — that won't remind you of your high-school prom photos. We rounded up some inspiration ahead, and most of them won't take a trip to the salon or a can of spritz to recreate.A chic updo on natural hair can be as simple as getting creative with two ponytails. You can tie your hair into chunky twists, pinning them into a figure-eight bun, or twist in braiding hair from the beauty supply store if your hair isn't long enough to mimic this look.Double buns don't have to be side by side. You can stack your buns one on top of the other to create a look that can be worn to formal functions or the office.Sculpted knots not your thing? That's cool. You can toss your natural curls into a side-sweeping pineapple that's both cute and easy to do.This is like your mama's favorite French roll, but way cooler, thanks to wispy pieces of hair left out along the edges and a multicolored hair clip.For the 2018 Emmy Awards, Felicia Leatherwood styled Ryan Michelle Bathe's hair in a twisted updo that we are still obsessed with. Create a similar look by adding twisted braiding hair to your strands for extra length and volume.Celebrity hairstylist Takisha Sturdivant-Drew made a regular topknot way cooler by adding a solo braid at the front. She also weaved gold braiding cord through the front and back of Madeleine Mantock's gorgeous style.Instead of creating a classic, side-swept bang, Larry Sims left pieces of hair out of this high topknot to give it an edge.So what if your hair stops at the back of your neck? You can still rock a cute updo by tying two braids (with your own hair or using extensions) around your head and finishing it off with sparkly accessories.Jenny Cho's take on double buns is another look we can get behind. The stylist created a bow-shaped knot on Katherine Langford by strategically tying her ponytail with velvet ribbon.If your curls are tossed up in a faux hawk, pin some pearls along the sides for added elegance.Leave it to Laura Harrier to make a braided bun look this good. You can pull off a similar look by pulling your hair into a tiny bun and pinning a braided extension towards the front of your head.A good updo doesn't always have to come in the form of a bun. You can easily pin two butterfly braids at the nape of your neck and add a statement clip for flair.Creating a slicked-back bun like Scarlett Johansson's is as simple as pulling your hair into a ponytail, twisting it up, and letting the ends peek out.You don't need actual bangs to replicate this effortless updo. Just tie your hair up into a messy bun, leave pieces out toward the front, and use a chic scarf to tie it all together.Thinking of ways to spruce up second-day curls? Roll them into a 90's-inspired beehive like Justine Marjan did for Francis Lola. Bonus points if you add some bedazzled clips to make your style even more on-trend.Super-long locs are the perfect canvas for a creative updo, like this one by Xoannette, co-owner of Nappstar Salon in NYC. Even if you don't have naturally lengthy hair, you can mimic a similar circular style using faux-loc extensions.Leave it to Alicia Keys to make a simple braided bun look like a red-carpet style thanks to cute accents and, well, her effortless swag.

In a world of uncertainly, Amazon is a sure thing. Point is, I, too, was skeptical of shoe shopping on Amazon before 2020, but those days are long gone. Amazon has all the best brands under one roof, always at great prices (sometimes, you can even snag a Prime deal on top brands that rarely have sales, like Converse and Birkenstock).
It's a known fact that any time Meghan Markle is in public and photographed, whatever she's wearing at that moment will be out of stock in the blink of an eye.

Ahead, I've gathered some of Meghan's most iconic shades that are in stock.
