Kick in the Pants

Last week I met several people in a room of hundreds that are encouraging and supportive. I joined these people to partner with the MDs that created ProActiv and now have their own premium skincare line.

I'm taking charge of my destiny to love my skin and share it with everyone! I tried the Reverse regimen and it works!!  I will be posting before/after photos eventually but after 3 months, I've noticed better skin texture, smaller pores and lightening of my dark/age spots.

It's not too late to get great skin and with a 60 day money back guarantee, you can't lose!

Another photo from my archives...


Love this....need to work on focus although I do love the lines of the flower. 
From 2009. This was taken on my Rebel  XT which I have now loaned to Tyler for his high school photography class. He hasn't used it yet but I look forward to his learning process.

water drops

Red  Flower1

It seems that my hobbies have increased in the last several years and my photography has suffered. I also realize I need to tag my photos so I can find them easier....

Anyway, here is  an oldie from 2011.  I really do love photography although the DSLR is quite heavy for my wrist. I'll need to wear a brace and see if that helps....

Vegas: Oct 7, 2016

More Vegas!! Not the typical gambling and debauchery type of day. We had to do some serious work for the morning in cleaning out Carlos' place. It was a very long day...up til 3 am the night before and up again at 9 am.

I vlogged our activities and sped it up to make it not so tedious. I tried inserting music at the right times. For whatever reason, the video software is limited in choices so sometimes I use the youtube audio library but I can't seem to put in more than one track into my video. So now I notice that the fountain scene has no music. Ugh. So sorry.

Well, please enjoy the video and I will keep working on it....

I will be venturing on a personal adventure so stay tuned for that. i hope to earn some extra $ and we shall see how it goes.

Adult Getaway

Wow, I just finished recovering from our Las Vegas getaway without the kids!!! It was they're first time alone on their own but they did great. 

So the weekend of October 7-8 was the final Frozen Fury. This is a LA Kings preseason event that combines Vegas and hockey. Always a rowdy affair and since this is the final year, there were 2 games to enjoy! As some of you may know, Las Vegas is getting their very own NHL team (name to be determined soon) so that means the Kings can't really hold their Frozen Fury in Vegas. But that doesn't mean we won't have hockey in Vegas because I think this just opens the opportunity to visit Vegas more often.

It's a win-win in my eyes. I don't even have to see a Kings game because I would see any hockey game there to be supportive. Lol.

So back to Frozen Fury...I talked Hector into going with me this year and I booked a flight/hotel package. For some reason, the hotel rates were really high during this weekend. In years past, we've stayed at the MGM because that's where the hockey games were held and the pool area really is a plus for my friends. MGM rates were crazy expensive so our motley crew of 8 were scattered all over the Strip. Also the new arena (T-Mobile arena) is not specifically tied to a hotel casino so we'd all have to trek to the games anyway. 

We had people staying at Monte Carlo, the Venetian, AirBnb and I chose Vdara. It turned out as you'll see in my video that our place at Vdara became the central hangout before both games. 

If you just watched my video, I am extremely excited at  our "room". Hector and I've traveled quite a bit but this was our first HUGE upgrade. I don't have any tips or advice as to why we got this fantastic place but I'll lay out a few reasons as to why it worked out.

  1. We arrived on a Thursday. And very late, close to midnight. 
  2. In addition to Frozen Fury there are a convention at the MGM for 15,000 for the R + F skincare line.
I think it was a combo of those 2 things along with rooms selling out that we got upgraded to a one bedroom penthouse suite. I like saying that. With a gorgeous view of the Strip and the Bellagio fountains. 

It was definitely a great surprise to kick off our weekend. Stay tuned for more!!!

    San Diego weekend; part 2

    We managed to drive down toward the waterfront area of San Diego and look around a bit. I always have fond memories of SD and it is a great place to visit. Sure you have the obvious places like Sea World and the San Diego Zoo but there are many other things to enjoy....

    My version of vlogging is just highlighting or showing what I want. Basically it's just another form of expression for me. Definitely nothing groundbreaking but it's fun for me. Just like photos are memories, so are videos.
