Bath and Body Works Wallflowers Haul | #FavoriteScents #ChicSassyMomFinds

Hello, friends! πŸ€—Because I'm still on the running of America's next top scented home, we just can't get enough of having all kinds of home fragrance available out there... candles, Scentsy and now wallflowers too. Truly, because a scent can make memories come alive, there's no time like today to get all our favorite Christmas scents from Bath and Body Works. 

For wonderful Christmas time...Champagne Toast, Fresh Sparkling Snow, Fresh Balsam, Peppermint Brownie, and Lavender Vanilla (room scents for sweet dreams)
Christmas is my favorite time of the year and I have never ending addiction to shop at Bath and Body Works whenever possible. Hah. Usually, I tend to haul Fresh Balsam and we have it all year long. But because I usually take my trip to BBW for the post-Christmas sale, so what was mostly left was Fresh Balsam. So on the recent wallflowers sale (only for $2.50+), I was still able to call dibs on these select Christmas scents. I adore Champage Toast! The Fresh Sparkling Snow is as nice but only few stocks left.  Oh my, now I truly have to get more of these. 

There are a lot of pretty, themed and decorative wallflowers fragrance plugs available,  but I had to go for a basic sensor night light for our bathroom to not obstruct the wall cabinet. 

Bath and Body Works Champagne Toast wallflowers. 
Here's to styling our home with fragrance...Cheers! ✨

Chubby Sticks Ultimate Holiday Gift Set πŸ’„The Chubbettes | #ChicSassyMomFinds

Oh wow, I better not pout, because I now have the ultimate set of Chubby Stick lip color.

The ultimate set of Chubby Stick™ lip colour minis  $49.50+ for a $116.50 value.
 Set 20-pc layerable minis let you mix and match to create your own one-of-a-kind lip color. 

Set Includes:
Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm - Richer Raisin, Fuller Fig, Whole Lotta Honey, Graped-Up, Mega Melon, Chunky Cherry, Mighty Mimosa, Woppin' Watermelon, Pudgy Peony, Super Strawberry, Voluptuous Violet, Plumped Up Pink, 0.03-oz. each

Confession time. This is my first Clinique purchase. I don't really need another lipstick, let alone 20 of them. But my, it's too good not to buy. Honestly, I didn't even know how much savings I'm getting. I just thought, $49.50 for twenty shades, what's not to love?! So I swatched.

Clinique Chubby Stick™ lip colour swatches. Sorry, not much of browns and nudes so I didn't try them out. 
I've heard so much ravings about the Chubby Stick. But at first look and try, I like that they're so easy to apply. No frills. Plus, this time of the year, my lips can use extra moisturizing. The layering and mixing-and-matching also got me, just how I like to own my scent , a one-of-a-kind ChicSassyMom's lip colour sounds appealing. So yes, let's do this!

Me, myself & I *dreaming of the next selfie with these πŸ’‹
Oh by the way, I got these in Macy's, but just in case, shopping online at Macy's sounds also a good idea as there's gift with purchase offers, more freebies. Yay!

P.S. I love you lipsticks! πŸ˜˜πŸ’„

Benefit Cosmetics Holiday 2018 Gift Sets πŸ’„| #ChicSassyMomFinds

Saturday is for shopping. Oh my, today, I went to Macy's physical store. (It has been a while since I've been doing mostly online shopping.) But oh my goodness, it's such a remarkable sensory experience! I did try a whole lot of perfumes, but I'm still crazy addicted with Jo Malone, so next stop...makeup. You ought to know, I love Benefit Cosmetics (type Benefit Cosmetics in my search box). And as always, their Holiday gift or value sets are amazing.

Life's too short to say not to makeup and cake. 
All wrapped up and ready for gifting. This year's Holiday Gift Sets come in collectible triple-layer cake tin cans. Perfectly fitting. Sweet.

But wait, there's more available Benefit Cosmetics Holiday sets online, which I wasn't able to check out physically given I have to move on to counter no. 2, 3, 4, 5. Though, I'm tempted to get the Triple Decker Decadence because the Gogotint lip & cheek stain is new to me. Next time. I do have a favorite makeup routine, but still, one can never have too many makeup and lipsticks. Cheers! ✨

Fall Outfits πŸπŸ‘’πŸ§₯ | #ChicSassyMomFinds

Annyeong, friends! πŸ€—Hello, weekend...I've been dreaming about you. I felt like a shopping trip to kick off the weekend was in order since I've been feeling dramatic lately. I love me some retail therapy.

It was a very quick trip to Marshalls. Oh my, so much to see. I came here with a realization in mind that I do need Fall outfits for work and once in a while, night outs. So technically, I need to have three wardrobe sets when in San Francisco... summer/spring, fall and winter.  Though in the morning, it feels like I can and need to dress for winter in boots and coats. But then, I melt in the afternoon. Hello, soooh sunny California! I need fall outfits.

Shopping finds for Fall Cadigans, Coats and Boots
Unlike last Fall, where I was unemployed stay at home mom, I only needed casual clothes. This time around, I needed fall coats that I can easily mix and match, and just easily take off during the afternoon work coverage. 


IMPO Boots for office and meeting days. It feels comfy and so pretty. Plus it fits my calf perfectly. 
Tahari Coat black/white when I go all-black (which I usually do)
Max Studio Multi-colored (Blue, Green, Black) Wool Coat for some added colors
Rafaella in blue, white and glittery silver coat. I don't know the brand, but this looks and feels comfy for dress-down Fridays. 
Massimo Dutti crochet patter cardigan... for lazy days
I hope to get cashmeres soon, but considering I do public coin laundry (oh well, apartment living), I reckon, I can't buy clothes that are pricey yet. And I have yet to find storage for these when summer comes. So far, these will do fo now. I can't wait to do OOTD posts wear this to work. Cheers! ✨

Friday Night Barting πŸš‰| #ChicSassyMomxUSA

Happy weekend! πŸ€—

I feel like I'm fated to live in this part of California where there is BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit). πŸ˜…Until recently, I've been mastering public transports in the area. Oh well, it's convenient and perfect way to multi-task, meaning, instead of sitting in the traffic driving, taking the train for an hour worth of commute is one episode of my Korean Dramas. 🀫Plus, I'm lazy (I miss having a driver). Though it's risky. I do wish it's as safe and nice as Japan's commute. However, unlike Japan, where mostly it's a quiet ride (literally), where it seems everyone is so prim and proper, taking the BART can be more fun and engaging too. It's a venue to enrich and to immerse oneself to the culture...aha, so this is America.

I joined in the conversation with another passenger, curious about their do. It's November 2. In my part of the world (Philippines) before, it's All Souls' Day. Here, not post-Halloween getup, but it's a way of remembering Day of the Dead. 
I am still reluctant on moving here, I feel like my life is on a pause, wait-and-see mode, but with a new set of mindset, I condition myself (everyday drama) to try to make the best of our stay here. Oh what a joy that the warm friendliness of the city is so contagious and so it makes the whole experience meaningful and memorable. More often than not, "how are you?'s" and "Have a great day!" are not just casual pleasantries, but truly sincere encounters with selfies even.  🀳🏼So here's to chasing our California dreams...Aja! Aja! Fighting! ✨
