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*
These Amerisleep reviews are NOT a sponsored post. Not in any way whatsoever. Unlike other "impartial" reviewers out there, I did not receive my Liberty Bed for free. All the opinions here are 100% my own.

*6/17/17 Update*  Since publishing my original review, Amerisleep has started a new referral program. If you order through my link (THANK YOU!) you'll save an additional $50 on top of other discounts and specials! There is almost always a promo code available on the Amerisleep website, so if there's not a good deal today, check back tomorrow.
If you buy through my link, that would be swell because then I'll get a referral bonus 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 plannin…

A Blogger's Before & After Guide to Chemical Peels

A Handy "Before & After" Guide to Chemical Peels - 6/25/17 Update
Since writing my chemical peel blog review back in 2013, I've had quite a few Jessner peels (my favorite) and TCA peels. However, I've saved a ton of money over the past 6 months by doing my own chemical peels at home. At my last professional peel, I made a note of the product being used and did some research when I got home. I was able to buy the exact same one, Dermalure Jessner Solution Acid Peel 14%, from Amazon for less than the cost of a single peel. I also use Dermalure's AHA/BHA Acne Cleanser. (Apply this before the Jessner.) It's self-neutralizing, despite what the Amazon listing says, and couldn't be simpler. That said...
I'm not sure I'd recommend this to a chemical peel newbie, as you're already nervous enough the first time without the added worry of doing it yourself, but it's so convenient (and cost effective!) once you're comfortable with the chemica…

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. See below for details.

Original post from 2013:

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...
