The BEST of the Best in Show Award


We're a week into the 2 week Best of the Best in Show competition and things are heating up. Beth Stone Studio has earned a whopping 52% of the votes (!!!) but let's remember that there are TWO prizes to give out. Wondering what kind of junk trash donations PRIZES you can expect if you're a winner?

Pica's not telling.

Luckily, I'm bigger than Pica and was able to shoo her out of the way for you.

Prize #1: Scentsy Air Freshener, Kool-Aid (Oh Yeah!), a packet of green tea, Bodycology samples in Brown Sugar Vanilla, House Mouse postcards, a small bar of soap (Made in Australia - fancy!) and a blank Mary Engelbreit card

Prize #2: Reusable Toastabag (courtesy of Old Amsterdam, this nifty doodad makes it possible to create grilled cheese sandwiches in the toaster!), Kool-Aid, a packet of green tea, Jergens Naturals lotion samples, a makeup removing towelette with vitamin E, House Mouse postcards, and a blank Mary Engelbreit card

And, a week into the competition (gotta keep things interesting, right?) here is a button to help the nominees:

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:

Also known as "EEEK!" and "Oooh, Ahhh"
Not too shabby, right? To be fair, the "before" is extra bad because the Je…

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…
