Washi Tape Ideas

My favorite blogger, Heather Spohr, is always knocking my socks off with her seemingly effortless crafts. She'll hand make an assortment of scarves, wreaths, and from-scratch party supplies, all while conjuring up red carpet-worthy hairstyles and posting on her blog every single day. I barely have the patience to think up the blog post, let alone photograph and document every step.

Which is why this is right up my alley...


Staples recently mailed me a $10 off a $10 purchase coupon (yippee!) so I found myself browsing through their store this morning, trying to figure out the best bang for my (their?) buck. Washi Tape was on sale and there were dozens of sizes and designs to choose from. It's one of those products that seems to be everywhere lately, so I decided to see what all the fuss is about.


Not a blue cookie - sorry, Pica!

Washi Tape is popular for a reason. Not crafty? No patience? Can't draw a straight line to save your life? Washi Tape is the home decor product you've been dreaming of! Within 10 minutes of coming home today, I'd found a use for all 3 rolls of Washi Tape, all within the same blue guest bedroom.

Before:
Super dull door.

After:
A fun jolt of unexpected color - surprise, guests!

Before:
My super long shelf looks super booooring.

After:
"It must have taken you hours to paint that shelf!"
*Wink*

With my newfound tool of awesomeness, I was unstoppable.

Before:
The tags on this hula hoop have always made me wacky. They won't come off.

After:
Jazzy!

In fact, the Washi Tape is so easy to use that I took a page our of Heather Spohr's handbook and abandoned my lazy ways, painstakingly covering the entire hula hoop in Washi Tape. I alternated between green and blue tapes in 3" sections, which I carefully premeasured to ensure equal amounts of each color consistently throughout the hoop.

 Yeah, right!

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.

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.

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...

6/25/17 Update: Our entrance is dramatic - and bright, sunshine yellow!
 ...a charming brick fireplace...

6/25/17 Update: The fireplace is stone, but it's ver…
