Tips on Selling a House

Yay, it's finally Friday!!!

   As some of you know, I put my house on the market over the summer. This was my first house and this was my first time selling a house. It is stressful to say the least.

   On Monday I posted tips on buying a house. Today I am going to give y'all some tips on selling a house.

1. Curb Appeal
Whether it is the pictures in your house's online listing, people driving by your house, or people actually scheduled to look at your house, curb appeal is important. I didn't stress too much on curb appeal because I do think articles on selling homes stress this too much, acting like you have to have some holy immaculate looking front yard. But it is still important. It's the first thing a potential buyer or investor (which I still consider a buyer) looks at. All I did was a little mulching, made sure the grass was cut, pulled weeds, made sure there wasn't any clutter on the front porch, and put a flower in a pot on each side of the walkway t…

Tips on House Hunting

Ah, it's Monday. I have been so bad at blogging lately and I'm sorry for that. Life has been so extremely busy lately and I have so much to update y'all on and share with you and so little time to do so. Bare with me here.

   I thought I'd do a little post on house hunting since I have now been down this road of house hunting twice. I'll admit, there are tons of ups and downs and places in between. It can be very emotional and stressful at times but you have to keep your head up, stay positive, and know that it will all work out in the end. So to help you out, I'm going to list a few tips for y'all.

1. Find the Right Realtor for You
Finding the right realtor is key in starting your house hunting journey. You want someone you feel like is actually listening to you and not pressuring you into buying a specific house or pushing you to look at completely different houses that don't meet your requirements. And don't be afraid to speak your mind. My re…

Get Ready to imPRESS

I'll admit that while I am girly, I am not your typical girly girl. I have only gotten my nails done professionally maybe 5 times in my life. While getting your nails done at the salon is relaxing, it can be timely and costly. So then I end up resorting to painting my nails myself. Easy right? Wrong. I suck at painting my nails and it's mainly because I am just so impatient. It is so hard for me to just sit there waiting for them to dry without doing anything or touching anything. This girl does not have time for that. And of course then I have to hope the dogs don't bump into my nails or that will end up being a real mess.

   But now there is a new alternative on the market... imPRESS Manicure. imPRESS Manicure is a nail polish alternative in the form of press-on nails. There's no dry time, no mess, and they are waterproof. They are so easy to use and last up to one whole week. Just peel off the backing and press on.

   With the ultra-hold adhesive technology you …

I'm Still Here

Hey everyone! I'm still here and didn't bail on y'all, I promise. Sooo I've kept this on the DL and had only told a few people and was very vague to others but... I sold my house (I also announced this on Instagram and Facebook already). I actually sold it in less than a week but the closing date was 60 days after because of my buyer's type of loan. Some loans require 60 days. So on Friday, October 2nd, settlement for the sale of my house and the purchase of my new house took place! The old house is officially sold and I officially have a new house to turn into our home.

   I had thought I would have time to update y'all last week but moving and unpacking is EXHAUSTING. Luckily I had my new man to help and I'll admit, he did a lot of the work with bringing in the boxes, etc. Between buying necessities for the house, getting a fence installed, cleaning, going through boxes, unpacking boxes, and trying to put things away, I just haven't had time. I sti…

Weekend Recap

Oh my Lord it is almost Friday!!! I have very exciting news for you but I probably won't get around to it until next week. Either way, just keep an eye out for that post!

   Sooo I don't have much to say about this past weekend/ week and not a whole lot of pictures but oh well, this will do. Who's that new guy in the first picture? His name is Jesse and as of 9/23/15, we are officially boyfriend and girlfriend and I couldn't be happier. And Audrey loves him! I mean, Gemma and Tigger do too, but I wasn't that surprised that those 2 love him. The thing that is so special about Audrey loving him is that she is so scared of men and new people, but especially men. Even family members that are men that she has seen a good amount of times, she is still scared of. After 2- 3 days of Jesse hanging around, she decided she loves him and that he is her slave. She is actually acting towards him like she acts towards me and that is pretty much unheard of. So I think that'…
