new home

In theory, moving out of the family home is one of the most exciting times in a young person's life.

Until reality sets in and various aspects of household management which you may not have considered until owning or renting your first home or apartment suddenly presents themselves, that is.

From the emergence of mould and the importance of air purification to figuring out the fusebox and dealing with the landlord, there are numerous things we need to get our heads around once we eventually up sticks and set up on our own.

And here are just six, ladies.

1. The arrival of mould

For most of us, the emergence of mould in the family home was an issue swiftly dealt with by our parents and an army of professionals.

And so our first encounter with it in our home was a real eye-opener.

Can you wash it off? Is it making my clothes smell? Is that the reason for my cough? Should I move out?

2. The round-the clock milk check

Be honest and admit that you often left milk responsibilities to other members of the family.

And if not, there's a high chance your family made use of the services provided by the nation's fine milkmen which meant you rarely stood dumbstruck in front of an open fridge with dry cornflakes and black tea wondering where it all went wrong.

You forgot to buy milk, that's where.

3. The round-the-clock light check

As a teenager you were utterly unperturbed by your father's constant need to turn off every light in the house, because hey, the electricity bill had nothing to do with you.

And then you moved out.

And now you'd rather cook your dinner in the dark and shower by torch light than spend one extra cent on the electricity bill which is now your main responsibility.

4. Air pollution management

Moving into a new place brings about many issues which you wouldn't have considered before flying the nest, and one of them is the management of air pollution.

The average home can be up to five times more polluted than the air outside, and with your parents having tended to that in days gone by, you now find yourself educating yourself on the various ways to combat it.

Enter the Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link which purifies the air alongside heating and cooling you as needed. Oh, and did we mention you can control your indoor air quality with the Dyson Link app?!

5. Dealing with housemates

Dealing with troublesome, prying and inconsiderate housemates was not something you ever properly considered, and even if you did, you assumed you could deal with them in the exact same manner you dealt with siblings; a dead arm and a Chinese Burn.

And then you moved out, and you realised that other people are really weird, and you are one of the few normal people left.

Flying the nest was meant to suggest freedom, liberation and long, lazy weekends… not frustration, irritation and hiding your food from greedy hands.

6. Dealing with landlords

Your parents were your landlords, and while it was – at times – difficult, you pretty much had them sussed.

And they had your cards marked too.

But this new elusive landlord is a whole different ball game, and hell knows how you're going to deal with their cryptic emails, sudden rent increases and refusal to provide you with a proper air purifier.

Is it just us or do the Kardashians' re-model their houses every few months?!

Kylie is the latest family member to do up her pad, and she showed it off on Snapchat last night.

Taking to her bedroom, the reality star gave her fans a little tour, and to be honest, it looks like a huge living room with a bed planted in the middle.

Now, don't get us wrong, it's dreamy AF, and we'd love to have something like it ourselves…

Kendall Jenner is moving – and her new house is totally swoon-worthy.

Right in the heart of the Sunset Strip, the model has bought Emily Blunt and John Krasinski's former home for $6.5m (€5.8m).

It's kitted out with six bedrooms, five bathrooms, a huge pool and an amazing view over West Hollywood.

Lying on 4,800 square feet, Kendall signed all the documents on Wednesday and the deal closed this morning – and we just can't wait to see how Kris Jenner will decorate it (because let's be honest, we all know she will.)

Have a look at where Kendall is going to be living from now on:

As SHEmazing! reported earlier this week, Kylie Jenner has been financially independent since the age of 14 (oh yeah, us too).

Kylie has previously stated that, using her own cash, she wanted to be gone from the Kardashian-Jenner family home by the time her 18th birthday rolls around in August.

And it looks like her plans are on course. 

Back in March, Kylie showed off her newly purchased €2.3m mansion in Los Angeles. At the time, it looked like there was a bit of work to do on the house but it seems it's well underway and on schedule to be completed over the summer.

 

so much work to still be done! IM SO EXCITED. The first thing I'm gonna open are my new @casper mattresses

According to the star's Snapchat account, she now has a fab new fireplace. And coming across as older than her 17 years, she even complains that "this is the s*** that excites me now".

The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star also shared a snap of her glam room, which looks almost ready to go, complete with an extravagant chandelier.

This space will no doubt be where celebrity make-up artist and close friend of Kylie and family, Joyce Bonelli, gets to work.

Kylie's new abode is located in the Oaks neighbourhood in swish Calabasas, which is just one street away from the sprawling abodes of her sisters Kourtney and Khloe.

The Oaks is a gated, highly-exclusive community and Kylie's new spot in there is said to have five bedrooms, a home cinema and a pool.
