Farewell Forever?

Tomorrow, I'm leaving the country for three weeks to go to a family reunion in the Seychelles Islands, which is off the coast of Africa, and Paris. I'm not sure how often I'll have access to the internet, if ever, so I thought I'd better say goodbye to everyone.

Goodbye! Have a safe and happy three weeks! :)

P.S.

Think warm and fuzzy thoughts for me. My family My CRAZY MOM is going to drive me nuts! Somehow, my dad got out of this trip and he is a lucky, lucky guy. Sexy Nerd, who has been pestering me about when we're going to finally get married, would not even come on this trip, even if it meant getting married next week! He knows it's going to be a miserable time.

P.P.S.

How bad could three weeks with my mom be, you ask? For starters, she is already upset because I'm planning to bring my laptop with me. I purchased this laptop, my first ever, specifically for this trip.

She is annoyed because I am only bringing 4 swimsuits. I thought 4 swimsuits was a lot! 

She is mad because I am bringing one pair of shorts and a few skirts. She says that I will be too hot wearing shorts and skirts. What the heck am I supposed to wear instead? Are people in the Seychelles running around naked? 

She freaked out because she wants to bring coffee creamer on the trip and, thinking I was being helpful, I offered to pack some of those little liquid creamer packets. Aaccording to her, this will RUIN our trip.

My mom says that we will be staying with friends for the 2 weeks in the Seychelles, but she does not know who yet. Umm, it's the day before we leave. Shouldn't we know by now? She hasn't been to the Seychelles in 22 years. How close could she possibly be with these mystery friends? 

My mom also insists that we are going to go snorkeling in the ocean, which I have never even considered doing, and when I asked her if we'll have life jackets she got really mad at me "for asking such a stupid question". She says that of course we won't have life jackets. This may sound fine and dandy to some people, but I CANT SWIM! Holy monkeys, I am going to die on this trip! All you religious people out there, pray for me.

P.P.P.S. 

Sorry for all the nervous complaining. Have a great 3 weeks, everyone!

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

Considering a chemical peel? I recently underwent my first Jessner peel and thought I'd share my results, post a Jessner peel review, and answer some frequently asked chemical peel questions (I'm guessing that "Does a chemical peel hurt?" is a biggie!). I'd been planning to order an over-the-counter peel (this one specifically, which I still haven't tried but has great reviews) but my computer led me a different direction.

I decided to do this on a whim, after LivingSocial greeted me one morning with a great $40 chemical peel deal.
Now, I can read your mind. You just gasped in horror and thought You trusted your face to a discount chemical peel?! You're wondering where my mother was and why she didn't stop me. But not to worry. Really!
Here is my Jessner peel before and after:

Dream Home Dreaming

*Update*
We've finally broken ground on our mountain dream home! Can you believe it? Even more surprising, we actually managed to work a good chunk of this list into our actual design.

Original post:

Sexy Nerd wants to move up building our dream home to yesterday. I still don't know what I want though! Yes, it's difficult to decide on things like paint colors, flooring, and appliances. My problem is a bit worse.

Should we build one of those adorable 500 square feet mini houses? A (budget-friendly) mansion? A charming stone cottage?

Ultra-modern??

The internet makes it easy to find great design ideas for building our dream house. The downside is that all my favorite photos combine to make an overpriced, mismatched conglomeration.

According to my Pinterest account, my dream house has:

...a dramatic front entrance...
 ...a charming brick fireplace...
...this eye-catching wall of mirrors...
...stone accents like these...
....a copper apron sink...
...a floor-to-ceiling windo…
