REALTOR'S DIARY

Ok also if I am not working into real estate agency I still comeback sometime in the office for definition some details about a SALE of mine but as I wrote some time ago I am also searching a House, the problem is that being a realtor inside I know exactly what I want and what I don't, I understand at first sight which kind of renovation works the house need and one very important problem is most of perfect houses on the paper are only ON SALE while I'm looking to rent a property, do renovation work in my actual apartment, so I can sell It better and then I can buy a new property...


I must to confess that my actual apartment has a lot of pros: is near center, there are several services in the neighborhood (commercial centre, bus services, little shops), there is a lot of green and rooms of my apartment are large, while new constructions are a lot more tiny...
The cons are that I don't have a garden but a lot of animals, so a little garden is an essential part of my research.…

DIY WITH KIDS

Kids and summer, most parents start to think about how to manage this long summer, I've read an editorial two weeks ago into Donna Moderna where grandma did militar housewife organization for her daughters and they loved so when the young daughter of Donna moderna's director ask for something she used her grandmother system and it works;P
There are a lot of summer camps and this can be a good deal if your kid want to go but if she/he doesn't is better to think about other activities....
Last week I'm been really busy with one of my side hustle: baby sitting and with rainy days we spent a lot of time indoor so apart playing, watch  cartoon on tablet (only few times and only for 20 minutes each time), we did a lot of works that included Art and especially PAINTING
We painted rocks, drawings, paper flowers and believe or not the lovely reverend's daughter liked everything, a little less the clean and reorganization of her toys, so now I'm working on other activities …

CALENDAR GIRL VOLUME 1.

I've read Calendar girl book, volume one, as I wrote some post ago I hadn't read a single word from 50th shades of grey but I am been really critic so many friends said that I wasn't able to judge something without having read or watched it...so I looked the cover of the book and I like it, but I've taught that was only one book, instead I discovered that books are 4.
However Calendar girl was in my list of July's readings and  consider that I've already read all books for June adding one more I decided to start It as my first reading...
I began the book thinking a lot of things, asking a lot of things to myself but after first chapter I'm already into the story and I asked to myself and also to my friends: if your dad needed 1000000 of dollars to stay alive and the only way is became a Luxury Escort would you do? Honestly I don't know If I'd be able to became an escort but I know that I'll try to save my family in every way.
I must to confess, I d…

As I wrote in several post I love read and bookstore are a serious temptation for me, so in the past months also if I hadn't so many time to read, I've bought several books. In June some books were still untouched so I started a decluttering process into my bookshelf and I keep only books I can read millions of time without be bored...
During decluttering I found this interesting book and considering that I already read all books for June, I added it to my readings. 

How to resist about this title?
I must to say it is a very interesting book, I like the first page with real experiences from the authors, I've started to ask to myself How we are so good to give suggestions to others while is so hard follow the same for us?
There are a lot of good questions with REAL answers: who pay on first date? how to attract him? Nurse or lover? and other with good replies, seriously some months ago I've read the Matthew Hussey books and I didn't like it a lot while I love this book a…

JOB INTERVIEW OUTFIT: INSPIRATION FROM OLIVIA PALERMO & ELISA D'OSPINA

As I wrote some post ago first time I saw Olivia Palermo into "the city show" I found her nasty and posh but I always admitted that I loved (and I still like a lot) her outfits because she was ans still is always perfect... so if you have just received a phone call for job interview see her outfit searching inspiration (web will help you to find low cost similar clothes but on your budget so bankruptcy isn't an option)...










The other woman that I admire for her style is italian curvy model Elisa D'ospina, she is really beautiful woman and her outfits are perfect, because if you are curvy sometimes isn't so easy to find right outfit for you...

One thing that you must to do during job interview is smile, have a good voice (not too high/low volume/tone), not too much make up, clean hair and I suggest to study the agency so you'll be prepared on questions about their business and wear clean clothes, I can  remember that time that a friend of mine wore her favorite wh…
