Things to do BEFORE Selling Your House

This post was one that I wrote in 2013 and shared a few things that we had learned about prepping our house to sell. I was excited to share tips to do before selling your house but I had no idea how popular this post would get, or just how many great tips people would share in the comments. I wanted to fix up the post a little and share some of the other tips that have been shared in the post as well to make this the holy grail of tips before selling your home. So although this post started with just 10 things to do before selling your house, this will have many more!

We put our house up for sale 2 1/2 weeks ago and boy have we learned a lot! Luckily, before listing it, I knew that there were a few things that we needed to do before we could do anything else. Once that list was all checked off, we listed our house and it has been non stop ever sense! We have had 9 showings and are hoping to find “the one” very soon! Here are a few things that I have learned that need to be done before listing your house. Ten things to do before selling your house…

Dry Shampoo Review: Battle of the Brands

Which dry shampoo will come on top? It is time for YOU to decide! This dry shampoo review battle of the brands has been HIGHLY anticipated and I am so excited to finally have it for all of you! I tested 10 different dry shampoos and rated them on their smell, price, residue they left behind, and how well they worked at making my hair feel clean.

Dry Shampoo Review Battle

I go about 15 days between washing my hair. I have done this for years and honestly didn’t think much of it until I had mentioned it to a few friends. They were blown away that I could go that long. My hair is just so used to it at this point, I am sure I could go much longer if I wanted to. 15 days seems to be my sweet spot for my hair though! I obviously wouldn’t be able to achieve this without dry shampoo, so I have quite a lot of experience with different dry shampoo brands I have used over the years. I wanted to bring back a lot of them that I have tried in the past and a few that I hadn’t ever tried before. I put 10 dry shampoos to the test, just for you guys!

NSYNC No Strings Attached Inspired Puppet Makeup

No Strings Attached was one of the very first albums that I ever bought. It helped shape my love of music at the ripe age of 11.

So instead of living my middle school dreams of seeing NSYNC perform live, I lived my second best dream of becoming a puppet just like the boys of NSYNC. [Read more…]

I really love having a cute doormat, but I have always wanted to have a more personalized doormat for my style. I absolutely love music!

We have a toddler who LOVES dinosaurs! She loves to “rawr” like a dinosaur, watch dinosaur shows, and wear dinosaur clothes.

These dinosaur party ideas would be great for girls, but would totally work for boys too!
