#ChicSassyMomFinds | Mother's Day Gift Ideas

Happy dance, it's Mother's Day weekend! 💃🏻 I did receive my gift in advance (thank you, Hon and Chaseyboy) so I'm not expecting any. Hah.  For my mother in law and mom, we will do last minute shopping later or tomorrow.  I thought I'll share few of my favorite things.  Pssst...share this link to your hubby or children, if, just maybe, they care to top up on the priceless tender, loving, care and flowers. ✌🏻

Methinks, flowers should be given, right? ;-D When in Manila, Te Amo Floristeria is love!

Hmmm, it's so hard to choose which I love more, so here's my list of favorite shopping finds/loot, Top 7 list not in order of priority.

1) Anything Tory Burch 🤗👜👠👖

Tory Burch in Manila is at Rustan's Shangrila. Visit the shop during Mother's Day and you might just have an extra gift, last time was a flower pot.

The Tory Burch Minnie Travel Ballet Flats, in fairness, is truly so comfy, unlike other ballet flats. OOTD post soon.


2) Chloe Eau De Parfum Classic and Fleur

Love these. I like the Classic and Fleur, I just had to have these from Robinsons Galleria Department Store for a good deal, 2 for Php 7500.



#FangirlModeOn | Visiting Heo Joon Jae's House in Legend of the Blue Sea #SeoulSearching

Annyeong, cinggu! 🤗

Legend of the Blue Sea is love, love, love. It's one drama that our Lee Min Ho oppa shines the brightest with Heo Joon Jae being such an endearing character. Thank you, drama gods!

So for a KDrama addict and fangirl like yours truly, Seoul searching wouldn't be complete without attending a fan meeting (see my Ji Chang Wook's fanmeeting soiree here 😂) , and/or stalking, and/or reliving our drama dreams by visiting a filming location. Last February 2017, it's a one fine snowy day to visit filming locations of Legend of the Blue Sea.

Pocheon Art Valley, here we come! Heo Joon Jae, where art thou?



Remember these scenes in Legend of the Blue Sea... daebak!





w/ my Seoul Sisters, truly we met because of Lee Min Ho
All for the love of uri Min Ho ssi, we left for Pocheon Art Valley around 3pm in Seoul. We took a taxi, and contracted the ahjussi taxi driver to wait for us, which is like the wisest thing ever considering we left around 8 pm, and the place was almost empty. It's a long drive, about two hours, I think we paid 160000 KRW. Considering we're four, that's about Php 1750 each. Hmmm, what's a fangirl gotta do! 🤣

Just before we left, we had a nice walk to Heo Joon Jae's house.


It's walk from Myeongdong and Namsan area.




What made the experience sweeter, oh that perfect icing on the cake, was it snowed. ❄️🌨

Oh happy day for a fangirl. I can't wait to be back to Seoul. Please, pretty please. Cheers! ;-D

Heo Joon Jae's house in Seoul uses partly the facade of Gallery 487, near the cable car of Namsan Tower. House sign reads 29 Sogong-ro 4 Gil Street.

#ChicSassyMomFinds | Hair Care Must Haves

Life is too short to have boring hair.  Read through my adventures and misadventures on my lovely hair. Hah. Oh well. 💁 I'm pleasantly surprised that I do have a lot of post about it.  In the search box, please type "hair color", and you'll find several, I did long hair, bob cut a la "Tangled" hair, red hair, ombre and a whole lot more. Though, I still tend to lean to safer hair adventures...no purple hair, just yet. Envy much.

Since for the longest time, I've been working with hair care companies, I'm reassured that I have reliable hair care products to do away with falling, damage, and dandruff. That, plus I do tend to hoard everything shampoos and conditioners, whenever, wherever. Hello, excess baggage! :-D 

But for a busy bee like yours truly, my hair care routine needs to be no frills. Be it if I have short or long hair, and usually colored hair, these work like magic. Nice-h! 👌🏻

My hair Care Must-Haves: Wen by Chaz Dean Sweet Almond Mint Anti-Frizz Styling Creme, Denman Detangling Brush, Philips Hair Dryer, and my phone cord hair tie and girly pearly hair clip 💆🏻  #ChicSassyMomFinds 
Perfect timing, my cousin gifted me the Wen by Chaz Dean Styling Creme. I love, love, love the WEN Hair Care line especially my coveted Cleansing Conditioner, which sets apart WEN from the other hair care brand. I remembered finishing a whole set of it sometime ago (wrote about it here, and here too, also posted it on my IG @chicsassymom ).  It had me at hello, minty! Everything mint and oh-so-natural botanical and herbs reminds me of spa and massage, plus Wen sounds so much like Zen, so I'm sold! 

Product Feature: This lightweight styling solution is designed to help take the frizz out of hair and give you more moisture, shine and body. Hair has less breakage after just one use and gets stronger even after being exposed to heat and styling stress. WEN® Anti-Frizz Styling Creme provides up to 8 hours of frizz control.  
The Denman Be-Bop Massage brush (told you, I love massage! ;-D) is a great detangling brush. The brush evenly distributes the Wen Styling Creme applied on damp hair. While note that the Be-Bop Brush is not designed to be used with hair dryer, it's a must have to complete pre-hair drying routine, which cuts down on the drying time. Those two, plus my ever favorite Philips Hair Dryer, easy peasy. I'm all set. 

Everyday look made easy, except for the golden curls that run the world, plus there's always the messy bun (thanks to the phone cord hair tie) to get things done. #Hairstyle #ShamelessSelfie #Selca 
Bring on the hair flip. 💁 Cheers! ;-D

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!
