ROAR! It's a Dragonsaurous

I recently received a Dragonsaurous Child Costume to review from Wholesale Halloween Costumes. Out of all the costumes I have written about for this company (Baby Skunk, Blonde Wig, and Little Lion), this one is my favorite by far! If you're looking for a costume for your baby or toddler for Halloween this year, this one is it.
Out of the package, the Dragonsaurous costume looks exactly as high quality as it does online. There is no need to iron it. The scales going down the tail and the teeth are a thick enough felt that they don't simply fall over like in lower quality costumes. The zipper works flawlessly. Everything is connected so you're not going to be searching the house frantically trying to find a part of the costume before trick-or-treating. I also love that this is a unisex costume. Boys and girls would both have fun roaring and stomping around is this costume, whether on Halloween or simply for playing dress-up.

Plus, it's super-cute!

I was especially impressed with the variety of colors and textures of the fabric. Despite being crammed into nearly too small packaging, none of the texture seemed affected in any way.

I was surprised to finally see a side view when I received this Dragonsaurous costume. It wasn't available on the website. Look - wings!

So that's why they call it a dragonsaurous instead of just a dinosaur!


Personally, I think the costume would be cuter without the little wings. They hadn't been shown online or mentioned in the product description, so they weren't what I had been expecting.

That said, what toddler costume isn't improved by the imaginary ability to fly? Wings crank the fun factor way up!

Amerisleep Mattress Reviews: 5 Years Later

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

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?


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...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
