Woman's Day Magazine Irks Me

I have been a bit peeved with Woman's Day ever since I subscribed a few months ago. The magazine is marketed as being "written and edited for every woman to live well every day." Scanning through the pages, you'll find a variety of recipes, organizational tips, and inspirational stories. There is only one thing that I don't like about Woman's Day magazine. Scratch that. There's one thing that I can't stand. It's at the beginning of every issue, casually placed in its own little 1/8 of the page. I had been looking forward to the April issue because there was a new editor, Elizabeth Mayhew. Surely, I thought, she'll do away with this one, stupid out of place item. What am I talking about? Here's this month's thing that ticks me off:


"Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth." 
Psalm 96.1

Are you kidding me, Woman's Day? I've asked around and I'm not the only one who was under the impression that it's not a religious magazine. If they want to be religious, they should just go all out and do it, rather than pretending to cater to all women while slyly sneaking in their beliefs. I'm all for starting the magazine with an inspirational quote. There are plenty of wonderful, neutral ones to choose from. Mentioning religion in the context of an article would also be fine. Honestly, as long as they continued to provide the same household tips and recipes, I would continue to subscribe. I do, however, feel like that bible verse is somewhere it doesn't belong.

On a lighter note, one of the tips from the April issue cracked me up. What can you do with a lemon? According to page 12, you can cut a lemon in half, rub it on your armpits, and go out deodorant-free.

Um, thanks, but I'll stick with my Secret Platinum and save my lemons for my tea!

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…
