Why I am Having an Ancestry DNA Test

*Collaborative post.

Have you ever thought of taking an ancestry DNA Test? I have many times. I have always been curious about my ancestors and I how I got here. So it is amazing we now have the technology to get an ancestry test done. I got a DNA testing kit some months ago and I will be sending the sample required over to the company in the next few days. My plan is to share the results on Fashion and Style Police, once I have digested it all. So keep your eyes open for that post.

Why I am having an Ancestry DNA Test

So why am I having an Ancestry DNA Test? Myself and M are the only people I know in real life that are interested in this test. Many people I know have zero interest in having one done and wonder why I would even think of having such a test. I have always been interested in my family history. The idea of being able to discover my background and genetic makeup is incredible. I think it is valuable information everyone should have and I am grateful we now have the technology today to discover all the information we need. I am also happy it is not too pricey to have the test done too! That makes it even more possible for more people to get the genetic test done.

 

What I am hoping to gain from the genetic analysis

The results are usually 99.9% accurate which is great. I am hoping to learn more about myself through my family history and makeup genetics. Hopefully, the results from the test would help me improve my life by making necessary lifestyle changes.

 

What are your thoughts on ancestry DNA Tests? Have you had one done before or thought of getting it done? Let’s chat in the comments section below.

My Obsession with Homes Under the Hammer

*Collaborative post.

 

I have an obsession with Homes Under the Hammer. It is one property show I love watching on BBC. I have been a fan of this show for many years now, Been loving it long before we became home owners. My obsession is so serious that I watch this show everyday and play catch up on BBC iPlayer when I miss it. I remember daydreaming about owning homes or at least a home to start with in the UK. It is amazing we now own our home, but building a property portfolio is still a dream. I hope to change that dream to a reality one day, and I know I can with hard work, planning and determination.

Why do I Like Homes Under the Hammer So Much

I think the show is brilliant. I love seeing deadbeat homes transform into luxurious houses. The whole auction and renovation process is very interesting. It is amazing to see how much a deadbeat house is worth and how much money and times goes into renovating it. Seeing the profit margins motivates me even more to get into the property business as soon as we can.

The fact that a house can be easily transformed with some tiles/carpets, blinds, beautiful decor, paint, lean to conservatory, French doors, and more is great. It makes me want to step up my DIY skills. I have seriously improved when it goes to DIY. Some months ago, I couldn’t even use a screwdriver properly when I had to change the batteries in the kiddies’ toys, but now I can. With things like this, it takes determination, and I am determined to be better at doing home improvements around the house.

Our plan is to paint some of the rooms in the next few months, and I am looking forward to getting my hands dirty. Most of the homeowners that appear on Homes Under the Hammer do a good portion of the home improvements themselves to save money, and I don’t blame them. In order to increase the profit margins, you have to be able to do some of the work.
