Questions to ask before buying a home

how to organize your finances for home buying process

Like I’ve shared on social media and on the blog a bit, I recently purchased my first home! (Insert ALL the emojies here). I’m still grasping the fact that I’m adult enough to own my own home and that I’m also the landlord of the property. The whole process of buying a home was fun, but also incredibly stressful and long – there’s so much more that goes into it than I initially knew. Since I just went through everything and…

I think anyone that’s ever lived with me could tell you that I’m a MAJOR Amazon Prime Junkie – based on the ridiculous amount of Prime boxes I get on a weekly basis dropped off at my doorstep. Like, I don’t mean to toot my own horn or anything, but I’ve been using it (read: addicted to it) since before it was even cool – aka before everyone discovered how amazing and useful it was to order anything and everything…

We talk about hair volume a lot on Snapchat and I did an entire blog post on it a few months back (slash I want to do a video soon too!), but another topic I’ve been wanting to cover is curls – just in general and specifically about how to get them to actually STAY all night/day. I hope to cover “curls” in a variety of ways but today we’re just going to talk about tips for maintaining those curls you…
