Taking care of the front of your house will add a little value. More importantly, it’ll make people want to view it and give a great first impression. It’s a good idea to put prospective buyers in a good move before they cross the threshold, and the front of your house can do just that. Firstly keep any grass or lawn area tidy. This will involve raking any leaves off and regularly mow the grass. You’ll also want to pull weeds up out of the path. If you have a tiled or stone front garden you may need to get this re-paved.

We all have those one or two outfits that always flatter your figure and make us feel fabulous, but those kind of clothes are hard to come by. Thankfully, it is possible to ensure that you look good whatever you’re wearing. You just have to think like a stylist before you get dressed. Don’t have a stylist on hand to help you put? Don’t worry! Here are some of their best tips to make sure you look good in any outfit:

After all, clothes off the rack are designed to fit a wide range of shapes and sizes. What this means for you, if you want to look good in all of your outfits, is that you need to have your clothes professionally tailored. Sounds expensive right? Well, it doesn’t have to be, just look for a local dry cleaner who also offers seamstress services, and it’ll only set you back a few bucks per garment to look perfect.
