Snazzy Website Full of Snazzy (and REAL!) Deals

Today I am going to let you, my fabulous readers, in on a snazzy website that’s full of great deals. My mom was actually the one who found it first. She told me that she received an email telling her to go to a site and hand over her credit card information in exchange for a coupon she could print herself. Can you guess what my reaction was? Oh yes, I thought that whoever it was over in Mauritius or wherever these wacko emails originate had found the perfect sucker and that she had been ripped off big time.

My mom continued to call and pester me about whether or not I’d visited the site yet. “Yeah, it’s great,” I told her, rolling my eyes. Links from her email address flooded my In box. Finally, just to prove what a waste of time and money the website was, I took a look.

Damn. She was right. I purchased a coupon for $140 worth of fancy spa services for $70 and another coupon for $15 worth of fancy (everything on the site seems fancy to me) food at a restaurant in Old Town for just $7. As a self-proclaimed champion of finding the “best deals EVER” online, I hate when my mom is right about these things.

So, what is this fabulous site, you wonder? It’s GROUPON! They feature a different deal every day (except during the weekend, which is a tad bit annoying) and allow you to search in different cities, which is perfect for the travel-addicted types like Sexy Nerd and me.

What’s the best part about Groupon? If you refer someone and they make a purchase soon after, (I think it has to be within 48 hours) you get a $10 credit! Okay, this part sounds a bit shameless, but that’s because it is. Click on my link for Groupon RIGHT HERE and sign up and buy something so that I get $10! (I warned you this part was shameless) Then, refer all your other bloggy buddies and get $10 for yourself. And, hey, if you want to post about this on your own blog and say how Lamb at LambAround told you all about Groupon and how you absolutely LOVE the LambAround blog, that’s just fine with me as well!

What was that snazzy referral link again? http://www.groupon.com/r/uu2584086

Sign up and help feed my insane chocolate addiction. You know you want to!

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

*Disclaimer*
This post is NOT sponsored by Amerisleep. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my mattress for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.
*UPDATES*  A few months ago, Amerisleep started a new referral program. If you order through my link, you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! (THANK YOU! THANK YOU!!!)
If you buy through my referral link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus from Amerisleep that I can use toward purchasing other memory foam products for the house we're about to break ground on hopefully any day nowwe're finally building (!!!), so placing your order through my link would be so helpful, especially as we're a bit (a lot!) over budget already. What's a better compliment than planning to buy more of the exact same product again? Plus, I very much appreciated online Amerisleep mattress reviews when trying to decide on t…

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…
