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:

teehee, my hubby loves to play blackjack too.

I don't have much luck with gambling, but anyways, my hubby and I went to laughlin for our honeymoon, and he gambled and actually earned money, which was awesome! we basically ended up coming back home with most of our money, so his gambling basically payed for our honeymoon, lol!

 

Inn of the Mountain Gods - I love the name! I bet it was gorgeous!!!

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?

The only casino I've been in, was in Kansas City. Way too noisy for me. Could only stay there for an hour or two.

    • Hey guys, im new here and love all things make up.  I seem to collect makeup from all over.  I love glitter, matte, pearl, anything.  The eye shadow palettes have been my weakness.  Every time a new UD or Morphe palette launches I have to run out and buy. With these palettes I have to have brushes to go with them.  Crease and shading brushes.  Then comes the blending brushes.  Lord, you can't have great eye makeup without a fluffy blending brush. Foundation is an entirely another beast in its own right.  I use my Sigma Flat Top Kabuki brush for my foundation.  It is dense and gets the foundation in all the right places. I actually have multiples of the same brushes so I know I have plenty to create my eye look.  While I was shopping for new brushes, I came across a link for a free makeup brush.  https://41f1caqgpjspd4h6n3u8grlh2e.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=MAKEUP119 It has got a few reviews and looks decent.  Hey, Free is free in my book.  The other major brush I use is the Sigma 4d brush that gets right into the corners around the eye for concealers etc.  I probably use like 6-10 brushes when I am doing a full face of makeup...  Even after all that sometimes I am not happy with the end result but its too late and time for me to step out and do what I was prepping for   lol   Well I am glad to be here and look forward to meeting all of you and getting into this makeup world even more...  
    • Congratulations! There some great makeup artists here. So nice to see you here. 
    • Hi Beauties! I dare to say, I found the most valuable and useful beauty tool for myself. I cannot help sharing it to you all. I said how important to draw our eyebrows better and lighting resources are really important to draw eyebrows. Actually lighting resources are important to your whole makeup.I recommended a LED light mirror under a post before if I did not remember wrong. But at that time, I did not use it myself that much and I just thought It's a good choice for someone who is looking for a good mirror. But now I have to highly recommend it. Since these days it's raining all the time AND I get up so early, there is no much natural lighting for me to makeup myself. Then I take out the LED lighting mirror. It surprised me indeed. Really wide-angle viewing. There is a cover on the mirror surface and the cover can be opened as a wider mirror. You can long press the button to change the brightness. That will meet all your makeup demands. When I draw my eyebrows, I can see every eyebrows clearly. I know how to adjust my drawing natural and better.  I did not take pictures of myself. But here you can check it yourself: https://www.amazon.com/Easehold-Tri-Fold-Rotation-Countertop-Cosmetic/dp/B01MG8X4QS/ref=sr_1_1?m=A24N8FLRVFVVCH&s=merchant-items&ie=UTF8&qid=1519698602&sr=1-1 Highly recommend it!!!  
    • It looks like Revlon has gone and DC'ed it, so I was looking for dupes for this very face brightening color. Revlon Colorburst Lipstick in Peach.
