And they say gambling doesn't pay!

Recommended Posts

I went to Ruidoso, NM this weekend. They have a very nice Casino and Resort that we stayed at called "Inn of the Mountain Gods". First of all the room and view were AWESOME!!

 

Anyways - of course I went to the casino! Went there almost all day Saturday and about 3 hours Sunday before we left. All-in-all I walked away with obout 50 more dollars than I went in with! I brought $200 and never played past the first $100!! I "stayed alive" as they call it, for a long time :)

 

I was up about $250-$300 at one point, but lost some, because I was having fun! Oh, and I was mostly playing Blackjack.

 

Just wanted to share that with everyone! :rotfl:

HAHA! Well it kinda did :( I was up and should have walked away!!! Or at least colored up (for those who don't know: trade in smaller amount chips for larger amounts to condense) when I was up by almost $300 just my winnings and kept playing with the initial $100! LOL! Oh well :)

I love me some Blackjack! I am afraid to go gambling though, cause I couldn't stop myself and walk away if I needed to.

My bf and I love going to Vegas and Laughlin, but we never have a lot of luck. We both love blackjack, but we rarely come up. I also like the Wheel of Fortune slots. It's addicting! I've actually won money playing those.

 

"Inn of the Mountain Gods" sounds so beautiful. Do you have pictures?

    • Kulit sensitif adalah jenis kulit yang membutuhkan perawatan ekstra dan tindakan pencegahan karena lebih rentan terhadap infeksi kulit dan alergi. Dan keluhan yang paling umum bahwa perempuan dengan kulit sensitif berhubungan dengan pasca-cukur. Jadi, untuk membantu Anda, kami telah mencantumkan beberapa kiat cukur untuk anak perempuan dengan kulit sensitif.   1. Tips cukur untuk anak perempuan dengan kulit sensitif termasuk pembersih Seperti yang kita semua tahu kulit sensitif membutuhkan perawatan dan perawatan ekstra karena jenis kulit ini lebih rentan terhadap infeksi dan flakiness. Dan itu juga akan mudah terpengaruh oleh debu, membuat kulit Anda lebih rentan terhadap pori-pori, komedo dan bahkan menyebabkan kusut yang menjadi hambatan untuk bercukur halus. Jadi, untuk mencegah hal ini, disarankan bahwa Anda harus membersihkan kulit Anda tiga kali dalam sehari. Plus, selalu mencoba menggunakan tisu pembersih dengan elemen alami atau pembersih alami.   2. Lakukan eksfoliasi untuk mengangkat sel kulit mati Jika kulit Anda memiliki terlalu banyak rambut atau sel-sel kulit mati, pisau Anda dapat menangkap semuanya dan dapat menyebabkan iritasi. Jadi, menjadi lebih penting bahwa Anda mengelupas kulit Anda. Anda dapat menggunakan exfoliator alami seperti scrub gula atau kopi scrub. Tapi, bersikap lembut saat menggunakan exfoliator dan luangkan waktu Anda.   3. Gunakan pelembab untuk mencegah iritasi Umumnya, kulit sensitif lebih kering dan tidak memiliki hidrasi yang dapat membuat proses pencukuran menjadi menyakitkan dan bahkan dapat menyebabkan reaksi kulit. Jadi, menjadi lebih penting untuk menjaga kulit Anda lembab karena membantu menjaga tingkat pH kulit Anda dengan menjaganya tetap terjaga dan lembut.   4. Jangan pernah mencukur ke arah yang berlawanan dari pertumbuhan rambut Mencukur ke arah yang berlawanan dari pertumbuhan rambut adalah teknik yang sangat umum diikuti oleh wanita. Tapi, dalam kasus wanita dengan kulit sensitif, teknik ini dapat terbukti sangat menyakitkan dan menyebabkan ruam dan benjolan. Jadi, disarankan bahwa Anda harus mencukur ke arah yang sama dengan pertumbuhan rambut menggunakan pisau tunggal untuk mendapatkan pencukuran yang halus. Dan, lebih baik menghindari cukur jika Anda sudah memiliki luka atau cedera.   5. Bilas kulit Anda dengan air sebelum bercukur Jika Anda memiliki kulit sensitif dan Anda mencukur kulit Anda ketika kering maka itu adalah kesalahan besar. Umumnya, kulit sensitif kering di alam yang juga merupakan penyebab utama masalah kulit dan infeksi. Dan untuk alasan ini, disarankan bahwa Anda harus pergi untuk bilas air 5 menit untuk membuat kulit Anda lembab dan bercukur dengan lancar   6. Gunakan alat higienis untuk mencukur Jika Anda juga ingin menjaga alergi kulit dan infeksi, kebersihan adalah aspek penting untuk dipertimbangkan terutama dalam kasus kulit sensitif. Untuk mencegah infeksi dan alergi, sangat penting bagi Anda untuk menjaga pisau cukur tetap bersih. Pastikan Anda tidak menggunakan pisau yang sama setelah 3 hingga 4 penggunaan karena dapat menjadi kasar dan dapat menyebabkan pendarahan.   7. Jagalah kulit Anda pasca bercukur Sangat penting untuk merawat kulit pasca bercukur agar tetap halus dan bersih. Banyak wanita dengan kulit sensitif mengeluh tentang sensasi terbakar, ruam kulit dan iritasi setelah bercukur. Jadi, untuk mencegah itu, kami telah mencantumkan beberapa tips untuk merawat kulit Anda.   • Selalu bilas kulit Anda dengan air dingin setelah bercukur. • Jika Anda mengalami sensasi gatal atau menyengat, pastikan Anda menerapkan paket dingin. • Pastikan Anda menggunakan gel aftershave. Dan jika Anda memiliki kulit yang sensitif, maka pilihlah pelembab alami seperti minyak kelapa, gel lidah buaya untuk memberikan efek menenangkan pada kulit Anda. • Untuk mendapatkan bantuan dari segala jenis iritasi dan rasa sakit, Anda dapat menempatkan kain dingin di sekitar kulit Anda.
    • Eyebrow pencils are not just for those of you who have over-tweezed or thinning brows; they’re for everyone! Unless you are a genetically modified superhuman with the ability to control how your hair grows, it’s likely you may have a little patchiness in your brows from time to time—that includes those who have naturally defined eyebrows. This is why it’s important to A) own an eyebrow pencil and B) know how to use a brow pencil to make your eyebrows look fuller. How to Fill in Eyebrows
      Here are a few tips to help you get fuller brows… or at least look like you have fuller brows! Find Your Perfect Brow Shape
      Finding your best eyebrow shape is critical when filling in your brows; otherwise, it’s sort of like drawing outside of the lines. You’ve likely heard that changing your eyebrow shape can completely change the way you look, and it’s true.  Brush Them Up
      Now that you know your shape, it’s time to start the fill-in process. This helps reveal your eyebrow’s true shape and it will also help you see any patchy areas that need a little extra love. Fill Them In
      Fill in your brows using short, dash-like strokes. Make sure your strokes are going in the direction of your hair. That means, on the tail portion of your brow, the strokes should go toward the end of your brow, but as you get closer to the head of your brow (by your nose), the strokes show go in an upward direction.  Add Powder for a Deeper Color
      If you want to make our brows stand out, even more, you can layer brow powder on top of the eyebrow pencil. Use the angle brush and powder from the  Eyebrow Kit to add definition to your brows. Using the same short motions, brush the powder into the last two-thirds of your eyebrows. Keep the inner third of your brows powder-free to help create a natural gradient look. The Best Eyebrow Pencil Shade for You
      As important as is it to know how to fill in your eyebrows to make your brows look fuller, we also know it’s important to use the right shade of Retractable Brow Pencil. That’s why we have 5 shades for virtually any brow color (except, maybe pink or blue—try our lip or eye pencils instead if you like dying your brows fun colors!). Here’s the trick to remember: most brunettes have eyebrows that are a similar shade to their hair color, but if you have grey, blonde or red hair, your brows are usually slightly darker than your natural hair color. Check out the below guide for your best brow pencil shade.
