#ChicSassyMomFinds | Lancome X Shiseido Haul #SkincareAddict πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♀️✌🏻

Konnichiwa! ;-D Hope all is well with everyone. My most recent updates prior to this shopping post is about our real life dramas (instead of Korean dramas πŸ˜‰), I hope to inspire, keep chasing your dreams, with God's graces, you can be fearless. Inshallah. πŸ’«

Well, while we've been very busy sorting our lives here in the US of A, somebody (me πŸ™‹πŸ»‍♀️) has also been very busy online shopping. If you're following me on IG @chicsassymom , my feed is mostly about those and selfies. 🀫 I mean, my goodness, truly there's so much deals going to fuel impulse buying. Since we (including my husband πŸ˜ƒ) are so easy to get or just probably innate shopaholics, online shopping has never been this good especially for a skincare and gift with purchase addict like yours truly.

Shiseido is now a mainstay brand in my updated skincare routine. Sadly, I have better access to Japanese skincare here than my usual Korean Cosmetics go-to brand namely Innisfree and Skinfood, admittedly because of the gifts with purchase, it makes sense to get them. As always, Japanese skincare brands don't disappoint, so Shiseido takes 2 or 3 of my 7++ skincare steps. πŸ˜‰ The Shiseido Tinted Foundation is my go-to sunscreen + foundation, easy peasy. I'm already on my second tube, a tube goes a long way, see my many #FOTD selfies while wearing it on my IG. ✌🏻
Shiseido Ibuki Smart Fitering Smoother promises picture-perfect looking skin. Awwwww, because I do plan on taking more selfies 🀩 , this seems like a good addition to my skincare/makeup routine. Review and FOTD post soon. 
Bonjour!  Oh my #Lancome, je t’aime! ❤️ I'm so into Lancome lately. It's the first non-Korean/Japanese skincare brand that seems to suit my super sensitive skin. Oh wait, Suzy is the brand ambassador of it in Korea, let's count it as a Korean skincare/makeup too, shall we?✌🏻

Macy's had a tempting deal to buy a $35+ purchase and you get everything else for free. Paid purchase is the Dual Finish Multi-Tasking Powder and Foundation in One. I hope to do a full review of it, but again #FOTD post on my IG account. It's so good, that I already got a second one for gifting to my mom, who shares the same shade and skin type like yours truly. Plus the skincare items are equally as nice, I love, love, love the Advanced Genefique. And because the Bi-Facil is a truly good eye makeup remover, I wear the Monsieur Big Mascara all the time. Super nice.  
But wait, there's more 🀭, Bloomingdale's had another nice deal, starting at $39.50 but if you bring it up to $75+ you get even more. I got the Lip Trio for that additional purchase. Paid purchases are the Nutrix and the Ombre Hypnose Mini Chubby. 
Oh well, it seems I have enough make up and even more lipsticks to last me a while. But for skincare, I dare not to skimp on them, so I'll probably have some room for more. ☺️ Have a beautiful day! Cheers! ;-D

P.S. Please do drop me a note on which item you would want me to review first. Or if you have a brand or an item that you would like me to try. Or a sale event, perhaps. πŸ€—

#ChicSassyMom x USA 🌴 | Cheers to New Beginnings v2 ✨

Annyeong, cinggu! Oh my, life's so hectic and dramatic, oh well, life goes on...aja! aja! Fighting!

Anyhow, I guess this is it, so it's back to regular programming.

 Commit to the Lord whatever you do,  and He will establish your plans. πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜‡ -Proverbs 16:3
It's always major change when we're taken out of our comfort zones, if you have been following me since a long time ago, there were numerous life changing and dramatic happenings (read Dear Diary tab, here, here too). Sometimes, I ended up MIA, and then I'll tell you all about the deets on how I've survived it. More often than not, I ended up not boring you with the details. Meantime, I have a lot of time, so I might just be chatty and post whatever like... right now.

My matryoshka dolls from last time came with us and they're feeling right at home. I always like candles and candle holders, what's pleasantly surprising is my sudden fondness of Pineapples (who lives in the pineapple under the sea πŸ˜‚).
Candle holders, hourglass, Pineapple decors all from Homegoods. 
For the past fifteen years, this is probably our 7th move to a new house, condo, or apartment. It's hectic, toxic, stressful, and then the fun begins...shopping and home decorating, feeling interior designer. Hah.

...and now we're starting over again, it's not the easiest thing to do. 🎀🎼 πŸ˜… We have tons of ref magnets for travel keepsakes, the rest should be arriving soon. So far, we did Monterey Bay and Napa Valley (will post soon). 
I like that we get a clean slate. From black and white theme last time, we're going back to blue. I can't wait to show you the final look. So far, everything is work-in-progress. Wish us luck! Cheers! ;-D


#ChicSassyMomFinds | Scentsy Warmers and Wax

Aloha! Taking inspiration from my aunt who has the nicest smelling home, we made sure to style ours with fragrance. I've seen other brands of scent warmers and wax melts, but for whatever reasons some would not really melt fully.  So I decided to go all the way with Scentsy. I'm sold!

Spot a Scentsy. Coffee or Tea? I love both. Keep calm and drink coffee and tea. I'm showing you 2 of 5 layers of my Tea Pot collection, as the rest are still work in progress. 
The tricky part, unless you know a friend or a friend of a relative that does Scentsy Distributorship, you have to get it online. It's by this official Scentsy Website (https://scentsy.com/). When you search Scentsy, you will be directed to a lot of sites. I'm not sure it matters, but on the main website, you have to click find a consultant to be directed to that consultant's website, even if you will not do it right away, on your checkout on the main site you will still be asked for your area code to match you with your consultant. (As a possible distributor, I like that the main site redirects business to you). Though I don't think it will matter in the end if you will just click random Scentsy Selling sites because you all pay for shipping and there's no meet ups or pick up options. But to be safe, best to be redirected to a distributor site through the main site. Oh shoot, I just saw that most warmers are on 10% off promotion for August. I just bought a ton of stuff from few weeks ago. Hah. Scentsy products are pricey. The Blue Diamond Warmer was for $45 USD + Tax + Shipping. Wax melts go for $5 ++. Oh well, Scentsy seems addicting worth it. I will let you know if I find cheaper alternates that work as well.

 Anyhow, you wouldn't miss a Scentsy delivery.

Unboxing. Such TLC during packing and shipping.  Scented Wax Melts were packed in insulated foil with a gel ice pack. 
Eenie, meenie, miney, moe. πŸ€” Since I'm not sure yet what will be my go-to scents (except for Just Breathe, I'm an avid fan of mint etc.), I selected by name and description. Hmmm, imagine. Goodness, it seems I got most right. To date, Just Breathe is a must have, plus Summer Holiday.
