Another Hair Coloration Affair Black to #WonderLight Clear

Annyeong, chingu! ^_^

Sometime ago, I posted that I might get a new hair color, and I did just that. Though, I had it after my Seoul trip since I pretty much bundled up for the winter with varying hats to boot.

But I did get a haircut from a Korean salon, Kawisori (will post soon), and I ended up letting go of my ombré hair color. So after the trip, it's either root touch-up or something new. Since my highlights are still pretty, I decided to just go for a full hair color to match them. I went for Matrix WonderLight Clear.

Before: Natural Black Hair with WonderLight Mocha and Highlights
After: WonderLight Clear
I don't have an outdoor shot yet (surprise, surprise, no outdoor soiree for us yet), will update. 
As always, I went to Freshaire in SM Megamall, thanks to my fave hair colorist, the ever supportive Ate Edna. She likes to indulge my every whim on varying hair color shades and style, love her. *Teehee

Chic & Sassy Tips: I get my hair color done quarterly. To prevent further damage, or to prepare it for another hair coloration,  I diligently make sure to shower my hair with tender, loving care. It's treatment hair mask every other day, and overflowing conditioner.

Yay! Me likey.  So far Matrix WonderLight Permanent Hair Color lines work for me. I might keep it for a while, or not. Might get red hair, or go blonder next? Will see. Cheers! ^_^

Fixing a Broken Heart #RetailTherapy

Hello, hello! ^_^

Teehee! ^_^ Found this in a shop in Wisconsin from last time.  

Shopping: The fine art of acquiring things you don't need with money you don't have. 
It seems I'm subscribing to the definition, so let the mergers and acquisitions begin...

First time in a while to have no big plans for the Holy Week, and yes, yes, staycations are made of iBooks and Korean dramas, so I got an iPad Air 2 with 128 GB.

Retina Display, bigger memories for downloading Korean Dramas, iPad Air2 is love!!!
I went back to work on Easter Monday with no extended vacation, so I said goodbye to manic Monday by strutting a pair of Nine West a.k.a. my Jandi Shoes. I love Nine West. It's next to FitFlop (I stopped counting after my 11th pair) in terms of the number of pairs I hoard, and you can never have enough. It's my go-to shoe brand for pretty and functional.

More Nine West shoes for me...yay! Good shoes take you to good places, let's get more! #OOTD post soon. 
Oh well, I'm feeling a bit flighty (aisshh, must be all those Japan, sakura, and USA travel posts flooding my timeline... boo FB!) A dose of retail therapy did alleviate it somehow, methinks.  Boo me, but now I'm broke, please fix me! Cheers! ;-D

Coke and Wilkins Delivery with Collectible Premiums

Annyeong, happy people! ^_^

Sometime ago (as in last year...oh my, sorry!), I mentioned that you can have Coke and Wilkins delivered to your home and office on a regular basis, yup, super easy peasy plus you get premiums to boot. Yay! The premiums for loyalty subscribers (like yours truly) are super nice. Look!

Hello, Happiness! #FirstDibs #OpenHappiness with these Coca-Cola and Wilkins Promotional Items (Coin Bank, Glass Coaster, ID Reel) for qualified deliveries of Coca Cola Products (Wilkins, Viva Coke, Sprite, Minute Maid)
I wrote a post about Wilkins here and here. For quite sometime now, we've been subscribing to Coca-Cola's Home and Office Delivery.  #LoveYourOwn ^_^

They issue a Loyalty Card, a subscription contract that indicates an agreed regular weekly schedule of coverage/deliveries. For us, it's every Thursday. Last time, they did a plus 1 promo. This time, it's those nice collectible goodies.

Safety first with Wilkins. For our family of three plus 2, we consume a weekly average of three 5-Gallon Jars. 
Mission Accomplished. 
Here's my IG (@chicsassymom) post last time. Have you tried Minute Maid Fresh? We love it! You can tell, right? ^_^

Last time, they did a 10+1 promo, for qualified purchase of Wilkins 5-Gallon product and other products, you get one for free. 
Do check out the home and office delivery prices of Coca-Cola Products including Wilkins in the flyer above.

For your Metro Manila deliveries, Dial Coke HOD Hotline at 813-COKE (2653).

Oh my, hope all is well with everyone! It's been a while, but I hope to be back. Please don't go away. Something is amiss (oh life!), I know there's no time to mope, but I couldn't help it. Drama. Life goes on, so let's do this... Aja! Aja! Fighting! ^_^

Seoul Travel Part 5: Snail Mail from #NamsanTower #SeoulTower

Starting Monday with a positive attitude via a Seoul-ful blog post...let's do this!

Aigoo, what is a Korean fangirl like? Writing a 10-part blog post given a 4-day-travel-to-Seoul vs. a 3-part blog post of a 21-day-USA-trip. Annyeonghaseyo! ^_^ 

Postcards from Namsan Tower. It's total reminiscent of Boys Over Flowers. Hello, Gu Jun Pyo! 

My son excitedly told me that he got my mail from Seoul. Priceless.

Located in the viewing deck of Seoul Tower is "The Highest Post Office". To send a mail, purchase from the selection of post cards, buy the balance stamps, write, then mail. Easy peasy. Oh my it's been yearsss since I placed stamps then sent out a mail via the post office. It's always via couriers with only at most 2 days lead time. 
I posted it last February 19...finally, it arrived!

They've got mail! From Seoul with Lots of Love. 
He's wondering how it took so long (25 days to be exact) for a postcard to reach Manila. We had to satisfy his curiosity on how a snail traditional mail works since this is officially his first postcard. This is such a good reminder that I should send him another surprise package soon since he's always excited for me every time I receive my online shopping purchases or media kits.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to travel to Seoul, I remember fondly dreaming of it years back fresh out of my grand addiction from watching Boys Over Flowers. So this is one check off my bucket list (*le sigh I have more, I can't wait!). And ye, I did take the dreamy cable car ride with a coffee to boot. I'm Geum Jan Di! *Teehee Where art thou my Lee Min Ho Gu Jun Pyo? Cheers! ^_^

Seoul Travel Part 4: Youk Shim Won Gallery AM #FatedtoLoveYou #EllieKim

Annyeong! ^_^

If you have seen Fated to Love You ('s a Korean Drama, a remake from a Taiwanese Drama of the same title from years back), you will be ecstatic to walk into a shop of Ellie Kim. In real life, featured artwork are by a Korean artist, Youk Shim Won.

On our second day, on our way to Cafe Rosso of JYJ's Park Yoochun, just right across is Youk Shim Won's shop and gallery.

Oh my goodness, everything is awesome! Daebak! Ottoke?

Youk Shim Won's wallets, purses, and more
Youk Shim Won's Stripe Sunny, Nani, and Pia, and Gaettongi/ Keddongie. Super Cute. #Kyeopta
Cutie pies...iPhone 6 and 6 plus Youk Shim Won's phone cases. Hmmm, should I change back to iPhone? 
#OOTD With my Seoul sisters donning Youk Shim Won's Character Tops/Sweaters featuring Kiki, Pia and Ria on me. Fits me perfectly! 
...and so they shopped!
Oh how I love everything! It's so hard to choose in a whim (given that bags and tops don't come cheap), so since I am yet undecided amongst Pia or Nani or Ria, I will save splurging in Youk Shim Won's the next Seoul trip. I promise, I will know by then. Hah. Cheers! ^_^

Fated to love Youk Shim Won, visit to know more.

The Youk Shim Won Shop we visited is located in Palpan-dong, Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea. It's within the area of beautiful Samcheongdong-gil with its cafes galore.
Oh how time flies, it has been weeks since my trip in Korean dramaland...and I have still so much more to rave about.

About Me

My Photo

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
