Mi Vida Loca

Hello My Lovelies,

I'm sorry I haven't been posting much lately!  My life has taken an unexpected yet pleasant turn.  I've been dating someone that lives near the village where my mom is from Colonias, New Mexico.  He's a rancher so I've been spending a few days each week out at his place, one day each week volunteering at a thrift shop called Passion For Fashion, and one day working at Antiques and Things.  I spend the weekends with my little girl.

In addition, I posted awhile back about how my new house was really lacking in the art studio department, which unfortunately hasn't been very inspiring.  I have made some improvements to my craft studio's organization, and I've made a few things here and there, kept my planner looking fabulous and fun, but otherwise....meh.  I do post some of the things that I've been doing on Instagram and Tumblr so, for quick updates, please keep track of me there.

Because I want to spend time with my handsome cowboy, but I also need to make money, I decided to take a job working for some dear friends in the awesome town of Las Vegas, New Mexico.  (Here's another cool link about Las Vegas)  I will post another article that shows why I love this town so much.  Basically all of the buildings and homes are historic because "back in the day" they couldn't afford to tear them down.  What an amazing twist of fate!  The town's poverty has preserved its Wild West history - and I love that!

Anyway, back to The Llano.  I'd like to share a few photos of Colonias, New Mexico and surrounding areas.  I have always loved this part of New Mexico.  As a child I never wanted to leave and I always planned on retiring there.  When you're driving out it looks pretty bland and boring, but when you drive off to the North, the roads take you down in canyons, or up onto mesas, with lovely landscapes.

This photo was taken recently - my boyfriend and I were out checking stuff and he took me to this cool tree with a random vintage metal cot underneath it.

Here's my Instagram post

Big skies - lots of peace and quiet!

My sweetie complains about the thistles, and though they are a nuisance, I remind him each time that they are edible!

We call this hill La Questa because it used to be treacherous when it was dirt, and it still can be when it snows

These next set of photos were taken on July 4th, 2009, before and after a huge rain storm that we had.  Water is so precious!

Curiosities everywhere...

Oddities everywhere too...

Waste not - want not

Fun stuff <3  Stay tuned for my next post about Las Vegas, NM.

Perfectly Posh - I've Made A Change In My Skin Care

Hello Preciousnesses,

Because I live in New Mexico, where it is hot and dry in the summer, and cold and dry in the winter, I am very concerned about the condition of my skin.  Earlier this year I became a Seacret Agent, which is an independent sales representative for Seacret Skin Care, a company that sells Dead Sea Skin Care using the salts and minerals from the Dead Sea in Israel.

I absolutely LOVE these products, and the company has a wonderful compensation plan, has its downsides as well, which I felt made it hard for ME personally to market to potential customers.

After a long personal struggle trying to decide whether or not I should keep it up or quit, I ended up switching to another skin care company:  Perfectly Posh!

Reasons why I joined Perfectly Posh:
1.  Made in the USA - yep...that's hard to find now-days!
2.  Sulfate-free and Paraben-free products - just like the ones you'll find at Whole Foods
3.  Mineral Oil free and Lanolin free!  (lots of people are allergic to Lanolin, and Mineral Oil is just a filler that doesn't absorb into the skin)
4.  Phthalate-free too!
5.  They only use Rainforest Alliance Certified Palm Oil
6.  No animal testing
7.  Recyclable packaging (this is VERY important to me...there is way too much plastic in the world)
8.  No minimum monthly PV (personal order)
9.  Generous compensation plan with big $$ earning potential
10.  No requirement for customers to sign up for auto-ship
11.  Every product is UNDER $25! (plus there's the buy 5 and get the 6th FREE deal)
12.  Get paid weekly
13.  Free replicated website and Virtual office

and lastly...

14.  The Best Face Forever Night & Day Exfoliating Face Wash.  Yes, this is the product that convinced me to join Perfectly Posh.  I tried it at the Lovelace Women's Hospital Girls Night Out and after that it was practically all I could think about!  My skin requires a microderm abrasion at least 3 times per week in order to look its best, and this was the product that I had been searching for!

I have received my kit and started to sample all of the other products that I received.  So far my other favorites are the Moisture 911 Caffeinated Face Cream, and the Firm Believer Firming Body Cream (which was an exclusive gift for joining during September).

In addition to Perfectly Posh being dedicated to producing environmentally friendly, affordable skin care that actually works, they also support small business and American manufacturing.  In their words, "We are proud to partner with mindful manufacturers and promote various internal practices to support sustainable business."

"Perfectly Posh is proud to support causes and organizations that promote the growth and independence of women with its You Deserve it Charitable Foundation.  See the current projects at"

And because my friend Michelle is still a Seacret Agent I'd like to recommend the following products:
1.  Body Butter in Ocean Mist
2.  CC Cream
3.  Mud Soap
4.  Essential Moisture Face Cream
5.  Mineral Rich Peeling Gel
6.  Mineral Rich Clarifying Mud Mask
7.  Foot Cream with Tea Tree Oil
8.  Salt & Oil Scrub in Ocean Mist

If you live in New Mexico I hope you will consider scheduling a Perfectly Posh party with me, as I look forward to sharing the Pink with all of you!  Everyone should be taking a little time every day to take care of themselves.  A great place to start is with your skin!
