So, there I was.  Just havin’ a regular ‘ole, basic kind of day.

nec1(outfit: taupe version of pants | similar version of  topc/o necklace)

You know, doin’ my usual things;  walking, smiling, posing … staring off at nothing in the distance.


When suddenly,  I received an exciting email from Sylca ~ my new “find” for eco-chic jewelry.

neccAnd although I had been planning on sharing with you the fact that Sylca uses eco-friendly recycled woods, natural dyes and fibers and coconut shells in their bold and colorful jewelry pieces,  and that their jewelry has  been sold on such sites as Anthropologie and South Moon Under (just to name a few), this email was just toooooo good.   I could Wait No More.

Here’s the email scoop: The stylish ladies at Sylca are offering all of you More Than Turquoise followers a 15% discount off your entire Sylca order, and this offer will additionally apply to … wait for it…

nec3SALE ITEMS!  So, if you’ve got your eye on my c/o teal & silver geo necklace, or perhaps this green hope bracelet or even this already on sale  5 oval wooden necklace  ~ it/they will be 15% off the price.  Just use code: MTT15 at check out.

Well, Dang ~ that email was a day Game Changer, as my day went from something kind of basic to something pretty FAB … don’t ‘cha think?  emoji thumbs up times two.

Act fast, my friends, as this discount code will expire 2 weeks from today.  Happy Shopping!

As Predicted

When you live in New Mexico and the weather person announces that it’s going to rain ~ the community rejoices. #WeNeedTheRain

When you’re a fashion blogger living in New Mexico, who poses for the lion’s share of her blog pictures outside,  and the weather person announces that it’s going to rain, …

So, as predicted, it did rain and although I had to do a little bit of this:

rainit turned out to be yet another beautiful day in New Mexico.

Now ~ often when the day starts off with rain, I find myself slapping on some non-descriptive, weather -protective outfit …

A few weeks ago, my husband and I were treated to an amazing weekend at Palacio de Marquesa in Taos, New Mexico compliments of the kind folks at Heritage Hotels and Resorts.

We were over-the-top excited, partially because we had not been to Taos in quite some time (a VERY special place for us) but mainly because we were very aware of this luxury boutique hotel, but had not had an opportunity to experience it.


The weekend we were there turned out to be one of the last cold weekends in New Mexico and … it evened snowed.  So when we arrived, I ran from the car and wanted inside immediately.

Hello in there!   Knock , Knock.   VERY cold out here.

arrive1 The door opened in like 30 seconds.  I was just being dramatic.

Once we got settled in our FAB room, appropriately named the Socialite, and cranked up the fireplace …


ALL was good. Every little detail in our room and sitting area was GORGE and I was especially loving all of the beautiful tiles in the bathroom.

Palacio-Marquesa-Taos-NM-Romantic-Bathroom Palacio-de-Marquesa-Taos-New-Mexico-Soc2-Tub2When you stay at Palacio de Marquesa you will receive complimentary breakfast made to order (ours below) that can be delivered to your room or can be enjoyed

in the community dining room where you may even run into, and visit with,  other travelers.


You can also chill out in the relaxing community room.


That weekend, my husband and I enjoyed fine dining at a variety of restaurants in Taos, had a private tour at the Harwood Museum of Fine Art, took a few pics around town for blog posts that I just recently released …

(like this post)
