When Life Goes 2.0 - World Is Still Spinning Music Video with Sedona Skies

 Hi ya Gorgeous,
Happy Monday! I love a Monday. Today's blog post is a look at the 2.0 self. It has taken me two years to get to the place where I fully feel comfortable being makeup artist beauty blogger as well as producer and director in family adventure entertainment content.




This music video for the Sedona Skies song, World Is Still Spinning is shot  in Arizona, by special permit in Union Pass along the original road before the interstate was built.

Actresses Leslie Chester and her daughter Abigayle portray the story of a young girl having dreams of a wedding day celebration and the journey to her dreams intermingled with the adult woman walking to the expectation.






The overall tone of the images to the song is that of managing disappointments and expectations.

The actresses wear  a hand made Jennyvi Dizon couture silk and lace dress.

HISTORY
The rock house by the side of the road at Union Pass stands today as a monument to Jonathan Draper Richardson and his wife Victoria, who bequeathed the house to their descendants on condition that they never cut down the trees and that they give water to any thirsty traveler. The spot where Richardson chose to build his rock house is less than a quarter of a mile east of Highway 68 on the crest of the Black Mountains- the mountain wedge known as Union Pass.

In 1897, Richardson, his wife and three children settled there, the area, had lush native vegetation, ample water and just enough flat land to accommodate a pioneer homestead.  We settled at Union Pass in 1897 on a homestead (160 acres) where my parents lived the rest of their lives”. When the Richardson’s arrived they found the remains of an old Army post that had been established there to protect the immigrants from Indians on the old road from Kingman to the Colorado River.  Using hand tools only, Draper and Victoria maintained the narrow winding road over Union Pass, three miles each way from their house.

Produced & Directed by Cherelynn Baker for Lions Rest Productions

Enjoy the video and you can find more of Sedona Skies music on Bandcamp

How to prepare for when help is weeks away -A Tropical Storm Rosa life lesson

Hi ya Gorgeous,
Oh the glorious grey cool breezy rainy days are slowing down. Thanks to Tropical Storm Rosa, my dry dry area has had a lovely few rainy days! Then in my email yesterday I got this sideways email from a survival group saying that September was "Survival September". Really?  How and where did you get my email and why are you sending me stuff?



Perhaps it's just a God bonk gobsmack to have a few extra things on hand, just in case. Tropical Storm Rosa gave my area a lovely wash of soft rain with clouds. The Phoenix and Yuma area of Arizona were not treated gently and there was been a lot of storm damage and flooding.

So to get that email yesterday was actually very timely as I also received the cell phone emergency test system alert. I was at the barber shop with my son and we were just talking about it; then the moment we walk out the door, both of your phones went off and we could hear others too!





I have recently seen in mainstream media that there is a possibility in a large event or attack or weather situation, help from local authorities or the government institutions could be days and maybe even weeks away, so it would be good to have a few supplies on hand, just in case!

So for the record, here's a definition:
A Prepper is a person who takes Personal Responsibility and Self Reliance seriously. Preparedness is an important part of life for a serious Prepper. They follow the Five Principles of Preparedness while they Walk the Path of the Prepper.

Hmm, perhaps we can all take a moment and prepare something in the pantry for our own families and neighbors.

So in doing some research, the Google came up with pages after pages of resources for being prepared.

Here are some links for you and then a simple guide of things FEMA recommends to have on hand in case of emergency - like - a really big emergency!

Final thoughts on this - there was not a mention in any of this lists for beauty items and I would like to add my two cents!

In these emergency preparedness lists - it says toiletries - though lets be more specific:
Anti-perspirant/deoderant
Chapstick
Hand creme/lotion - something in a pinch that you would want to use over your whole body
Dry shampoo for hair and body
Pack of baby wipes/body wipes

Maybe include in your survival kit, ladies hygiene, pet foods, and a deck of cards or small board game activity. Just in case it takes a while for the power to come back on.

What are your thoughts -which items do you have or do you recommend that are not on the lists?

Would You Try These Arizona Wines? Meet Stetson Winery

 Hi ya Gorgeous!
You know what day it is? It's Wine Wednesday and today we are meeting two wines that I picked up at a grape stomping event here in my area of Arizona. About an hour from me is a patch of land that is just perfect for growing wine grapes! Meet Stetson Winery!

These were, interesting. Enjoy the video! Before I go - special shout out to all the first responders who helped during tropical storm Rosa in the greater Phoenix area. Many parts of Arizona received a year's worth of rain in 24 hours due to the storm.

The saying works - "Turn Around - Don't Drown" - there were some who forced their way into high water and sure enough, got stuck. For those who don't know, if water gets in your engine, it won't work.

Ok, now, wine time!





Oh, one more thing. Shameless plug at that. My horror thriller short film, has finally gone live on Amazon Prime! Please check it out and share it!

Battle of the Masks: Addicted Beauty vs Global Beauty Care

Hi ya Gorgeous!
Happy Tuesday!
In my area of Arizona, we are experiencing Tropical Storm Rosa. Wow! So thankful for cool rainy weather! So far in my town, we have not received the epic Noah's Ark level of rain that was predicted - but - no complaints here! I'm so thankful for a non 100 plus degree day and it is nice to have no sun, just for a day!



Today I have an introduction and review of two masks that would be great self care for anyone in BCA month!One I got from the Dollar Tree store, the Global Beauty Care retinol sheet mask. There are 2 sheet masks to use in the package, for a dollar!  The other is a sample from Addicted Beauty that I received as a sample at Cosmoprof North America in Las Vegas. Good times I tell ya!




Enjoy the video and please let me know in the comments what your favorite self care and at home spa beauty mask is!

What's It Like Creating After Cancer - Interview

Hi ya Gorgeous!

Happy BCA month! Kickin' off with a bang! Today's video is an interview with a friend and fellow content creator and she has a powerful story for you about creating after cancer.



We were just out in a historic area of Arizona creating a music video for Sedona Skies, a band in Austin Texas. Oh! This was so much fun and I'm loving the end result!



It was a long long day, hot, and we were constantly moving. I was tired. Yet there is no complaining about being tired when I know what she has been through. This video is an interview and going forward into BCA month - get ready - because I am ready to encourage those ladies who are starting, in the middle or have already survived their cancer diagnosis!








Watch and enjoy!
