Curb your home enthusiasm
Whether you’re selling your home or undergoing a renovation, don’t neglect
the exterior. First impressions count and a little TLC goes a long way when it
comes to curb appeal. Here are three easy updates that have a huge impact.
Lighting Regularly swap out dull bulbs and clean out bugs, cobwebs and
debris. Consider updating your sconces for more modern fixtures if yours
Paint A pop of colour can add visual interest to a home, and make it
memorable. Visitors and potential buyers alike will fondly remember your
home as the one with the ruby red door, for example.
Greenery Landscaping is so often an afterthought for homeowners but
a well-groomed garden adds an inviting feel and increases property value.
Don’t have a green thumb? Planters on your front porch and by the walkway
are an easy, low-maintenance option.
In addition to supporting cruelty-
free makeup brands, you can help
small animals by donating your
old mascara wands. The tiny
brushes are used in shelters to
clean and remove fly eggs and
larva from rescued baby birds,
bunnies, ducklings and squirrels.
After Telus employee Kim Vey
heard about the cause, she cor-
ralled makeup tools from friends
and colleagues to send to rescue
organizations across the country
and now you can do the same.
You don't need to visit the land of
the Loch Ness monster to feel some
Scottish inspiration. Top-notch nail
polish brand OPI has done the work
for you by creating Scottish Collection,
a line of unique shades that call to the
country's lush landscape, trademark
tartans, legendary creatures and
undeniably cool culture.
