Curls are the best when in Quarantine | Dyson Airwrap πŸ’πŸΌ‍♀️

Between remote working and wearing masks when I do go out, I was too lazy to spend extra time curling my hair. Messy buns don't care. But I noticed that I have more bad hair days. My heavily colored hair seems to be needing a trim soon, it's so dry, which isn't an option for now. I  missed doing low pony tails, so I decided to curl it again. Sure, our quarantine life isn't perfect, but my curls are. Oh, please know that I'm so vain with my hair. πŸ˜‰

Here's a belated post about Dyson Airwrap. Not to preempt, but I cannot live without it. It's the best gift ever.

Chic & Sassy Mom Tip: This is very important!!! Quickly, let me tell you that I didn't really know how to use it before, I even had to return and it was replaced with a brand new item, not once, but twice, free of charge (oh the beauty of Dyson and return policy here in the US, but it was disappointing and still you had to go to a UPS to initiate return process). I almost gave up...but the third time's the charm, I finally figured out what I was doing wrong!!!

What I do in Quarantine and what I did with my COVID-19 Stimulus Check 🀫

I wish you well. Let's remain hopeful. Let's keep counting our blessings.

Side story. I work like clockwork. I have OCD tendencies and I'm a workaholic...so no surprise that weekend derails my purposiveness...no work, stock market is closed (yes, yes...I'll tell you all about it in a little while), no language classes, no keto coffee and I'm just supposed to watch Korean and Chinese dramas, but I can only do it so much (fangirl with me on IG @NoonaDiaries). Gosh. I believe nobody has it easy. But with a steadfast and grateful heart, we do have to try harder...this too shall pass. Let's do this! To survive this, there's many ways to skin a cat...I saw a Filipino meme, it went like this. Gosh!
Yung iba means Others. Ikaw na kupal means a person who shows off or ostentatious. 
My remote work is full time, so, no rest for the weary. My bedtime routine would include Netflix and Viki, but not TikTok (what is TikTok? πŸ˜…). Hence, by default, I'm on the kupal side. Hah. I don't mean to show off on purpose ✌🏻,  but I'm being diligent on updating my blog (I really try to be on a happy mode, that's when I'm able to focus and write, otherwise I just do non-stop worrying thinking...no bueno), I do my Korean lessons everyday (and post my progress on social media πŸ˜‰), I update my LinkedIn and I'm learning the stock market. πŸ€‘

Here's my quarantine life in a nutshell:

I dream of Poppy Bloom 🌼| Antelope Valley California Poppy Reserve

Before the shelter-in-place, we had our fill of vacays. We spent last Valentine's Day in Las Vegas. Super long drive from Fremont. We drove the night before and spent the night in Lancaster in one of my fave, preferred hotel chains (please check out my IG @chicsassymom). We had dinner plans in Las Vegas, but from Lancaster, we're already halfway our trip, about 4 hours drive, so we had time to spare. Like the trooper that I am, I searched what to do in Lancaster. Tadaa! Antelope Valley Poppy Reserve, which was about 30 minutes from where we were going the opposite way, but I reckon we won't be in this part of California anytime soon (I prefer to fly), so why not. My boys complied. It's Valentine's Day, anyhow.  But I wish, I googled more... are poppies blooming in February? Too late, I only found the live stream of the Poppy reserve after.

No poppy, but there's a Joshua Tree. 🌡

California Shelter-in-Place: Life under Coronavirus Quarantine

I hope everyone had a Good Friday. Purposive efforts today to soak in happy thoughts and hopefulness. I've been diligent in updating by blog every day, except yesterday, I had some real life drama. I'll not bore you with the details but let's just say that it was a life-changing decision. As with everything else, as I deliberate, instead of looking at the trade-offs as pitfalls, I decided to hope for windfalls. Aja! I haven't really talked about how we are doing in USA amidst the pandemic. This is Bay Area living for now.

Lush, still my Fave Skin Care Product | #ChicSassyMomFinds #LushLife

I hope you are all getting a good amount of beauty rest while staying at home. I'm trying to endeavor to get that in lieu of online shopping. Hah. I have been skimping on online shopping, my last was mostly Costco (and no, I didn't get to buy toilet papers and paper towels, as they were already sold out, when I realized I needed one), some Amazon, and only Lush made it to my essential must buy. Since my last updated skin care routine post, everything remains the same, except a variety of masks on rotation. I always talk about how I can be crazily addicted to something,...once a fan girl, always a fan girl πŸ™‹πŸΌ‍♀️. Lush is my new shrimp (*think Bubba in Forest Gump). Lush and more Lush, please!

Beauty Empties. My Celestial empties since September 2019. I did try to keep them, I was ready to exchange them for a mask at 5 empties to 1 Free Mask. What a joy! I'm joining the call to recycle, and yes, get freebies in return. Except all Lush stores are closed now, next time. 
Somebody knows me well, Lush gifts for my birthday.
