Facts To Be Known If You're An Addict Of HGTV

It's the network that will change your life.

Pop Sugar

The network that changes lives! The world of wallpaper, shiplap, crown molding, and paint colors. Don't believe me that it'll change your life? Continue reading, and find out for yourself!

1. Chip and Jo Gaines are relationship goals.

These two people truly hold a distinct place in my heart. They are the real deal. As a family, these two have found the balance to love one another unconditionally, as well as their four children, and change lives of random strangers on their own show, “Fixer Upper.” They’re the definition of a true power couple who know how to have fun with life and tackle whatever is thrown their way! Also, you are well aware of what shiplap is thanks to these two!

And let’s be honest ladies, in life we aspire to be Jo and see the potential in the most run down objects!

2. The thought always crosses your mind to be on “House Hunters” when you decide to purchase a home.

Whether they’re first-time home buyers, or finding their forever home, “House Hunters” gives you the rush of excitement to buy a home. What’s the most appropriate way to buy a house? On “House Hunters,” of course! You watch three homes being toured, and you can’t deny that you guess which house the family chooses. Ultimately, you chose the potential home based off which house you like, and get disappointed when it’s not the house you picked. This show takes you on a road trip across the country.

3. Don’t even get me started on “House Hunters International”!

Where one goes to tag along on exotic voyages! “House Hunters International” introduced me to the geography of the grander areas in the world. Oh, you’re purchasing a one million dollar home a secluded island? Yeah, same. Even though it may give false hopes to some, you have to admit it’s fun to pretend to buy a house with a view to die for!

4. Two words: Property Brothers.

Let’s just keep this short and sweet. Jonathon and Drew Scott. The Scott brothers. The Scott twins. What more could you ask for? Two brothers (handsome, may I add), who turn the foulest, most run-down kitchens into some of the most lovely modern kitchens.

5. HGTV.

You simply know what HGTV stands for. Home and Garden Television Visited.

6. You believe you can flip houses.

When watching “Flip or Flop” you get the sense of influence, that you too can flip homes for a living. How fun would life be if all you did was turn old homes that are bug filled with unbelievable cosmetic work into a stunning, renovated dream house? It’s not every day you have the chance to buy a $250,000 in cash, run down home, sight unseen, to transform it into something much more. Tarek and Christina El Moussa live that dazzling lifestyle while balancing a nurturing life for their two younger children. I guess, I’ll just live vicariously through them because flipping homes may be harder than I think!

7. HGTV makes you feel invincible.

When your life is consumed of HGTV, you get these fantasies boiling in your head that you are meant to be an interior designer, or a contractor, or just someone who knows everything about building and designing homes. You start to imagine redecorating your own home and make it just as modern and sleek. You start to learn the language of HGTV, you can basically call yourself bilingual!

8. Would you love it or list it?

That’s correct, what would HGTV be without David and Hilary on “Love it or List it”? Do we honestly watch this show to see if they list it? I think we can confirm we all secretly love this show due to Hilary and David’s funny arguments. You can always count on them to have a retaliation! (Team Hilary, by the way!)

9. You always enter for the dream home.

Why wouldn’t you enter to win a million dollar home? HGTV has an annual dream house sweepstakes, which anyone can enter in! How awesome is that?! These aren’t just any homes, these homes are extravagant! Beautiful! Located in the most exotic places in the U.S! Sign me up!

Still bitter I didn’t win the 2015 Martha Vineyards dream home…

10. You're always looking for a bargain.

Everyone is satisfied with a bargain. Especially when that bargain is a home on a sandy, white beach! “Beachfront Bargain Hunt” has you contemplating on going on this adventure of looking for a bargain home with ocean breezes right in your face! Sign me up!

11. You wouldn’t have it any other way.

You love when people ask you what TV shows you watch because you get to talk about all this excitement, and fill that empty hole in their lives with greatness! Until they look at you like you’re crazy and tell you to get a hobby. But watching HGTV is a hobby. It’s my hobby!

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

I Wore A Butt Mask Every Day For A Month, And It's Officially Essential In My Daily Self-Love Routine Now

Thirty days later, my booty's as smooth as a baby's.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
