Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Grouch? Revlon Frost and Glow Review

AAAAAAARGH! You know those days/weekends when bad things simply pile up, one on top of the other? I set our "away" message at work on Thursday afternoon and realized this morning that I said we'd be back Monday instead of Tuesday, which is not the kind of mistake my boss tolerates well. I have a bug bite on a non-bug bite friendly area and it itches but can't be scratched without attracting crazy looks. I'm at the end of my 4 day weekend (off Friday and Monday for the holiday) and I think I get into trouble when I have too much time away from work.

Example 1:

I ironed. Me! Ironed! This is not an activity I ever, ever do. I needed a new black skirt (my old one is a bit tight for working in a children's office!) and was super lucky to find a perfect, practically brand-new one at the thrift store. With so much free time on my hands, I decided to iron the skirt, despite having just a few teensie wrinkles (much to my boss's dismay, I've never thought "teensie" wrinkles justify ironing). Remember, I do not iron, ever...and now my perfect skirt is ruined! I melted the fabric and now it has permanent iron marks, without me ever even wearing it. *Sigh*

Example 2:

Remember my tweet the other day regarding the $10 highlights deal? It turned out to be for only 2 highlights. Being the cheap thrifty gal I am, I decided to buy an at-home highlighting kit instead. Looking back, the truly frugal thing would have been to simply leave my hair as it was, which was perfectly fine. For the record, I have used these kits before and have had wonderful results. The Herbal Essences highlighting kit with the lime green comb is perfect! But, that wasn't the kit that was on sale for $5.

Damn you, Revlon Frost & Glow!

*Beware, the results you are about to see are real. Yes, I even performed the strand test!

Who else thinks I look like Rogue from X-Men?

 See that clump of silver hair in the lower left? That's not the mistake of my camera - some of the highlights turned gray! I can't explain that little pink fuzz on the right, other than to say it fits right in with my "one bad thing after another" mentality of the moment. I feel like a ticked off senior citizen.

*Sigh!*

Of course, I read all the bad reviews of Revlon Frost & Glow after doing this to my hair. The grayness, the breakage, the mixed shades of color all over your head, the frustration with the stupid hair dye cap that rips out pieces of hair, and the inaccuracy of the strand test - all online and waiting to warn people before using this kit, if only they would take the time to Google it. They are never going to let me hear the last of this at work.

Example 3:

Really, wouldn't this be too many examples? I'm sleep-deprived and Sexy Nerd has ignored me all 4 days (except for the hour when he helped me dye my hair with that terrible Revlon kit. Can I blame the results on him?) of this long weekend because he ordered a lathe and now spends all his time spinning blocks of wood into bombs (bombs, for fricks sake!!) in the garage. Between you and me, I think the bombs all look like little Christmas trees.

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…
