A Week in the Life of a Mommy Blogger

rsz_1mbp_pinkA week is never the same for this mommy blogger. For one, this week is the post-exam week for kiddos and next week, we will welcome the long-awaited school break. This means a breather from tutorial sessions, and time for me to set up lots and lots of activities my kids can do while they are home. My eldest also welcomes the break from Science High School weekend review classes he has been attending (since May!). Ever careful not to make projects out of my kids, taking the sembreak for a slower and leisurely pace at home.

Much to my fun and amazement, my mommy blogger self was also in for a treat, as Lazada has gathered select blogger affiliates for the launch of Lazada’s biggest online affiliate competition, Affiliate Online Revolution. Ever-generous Lazada let us in on treats and surprises for all bloggers, SEO practitioners, online store owners, community managers, social media influencers and digital marketers who were present for the night at Best Western Antel Hotel.

Learned a lot from Speaker Mannix Pabalan and from Maldive Sponsors

Another highlight for the week was this year’s Blogapalooza Seasons 2015. Partner booths were set up that included a long list of blogger perks for everyone present to take home. Also learned a lot from the bloggers forum where bloggers’ etiquette was discussed and reinforced for all attendees. Highly appreciate and thanking Blogapalooza Community for staging a lesson-filled event this year held at One Esplanade. More than the freebies and partners’ giveaways, went home with more learnings I will apply on my next posts.

2015-10-26 19.32.38To cap my day, dropped by Freeway to make good use of the gifts I got from writing about Stylist in Pocket (Freeway, Ensemble and Solo). I was so engaged after writing about Stylist in Pocket that I got my friends from work to try it, too.

Overall, it was a week to thank God for, also because ultimately, I got to spend the week with the best people from home, from my workplace, and from friendships around me.

Bridal Shower with Freeway and Ensembles Home-Service-Stylists

rsz_1mbp_pinkThis is no ordinary bridal shower. It is unique in every way, partnering with an emerging fashion concept of home-service styling and shopping, Stylist in Pocket with top Philippine brands Freeway, Ensemble and Solo, two stylists Blends and Tess helped me and the girls get styled appropriately for work and for everyday wear.

As soon as the racks of clothes arrived, the girls started trooping to the dresses and tops, and like how you would do it at shops, the girls checked out the dresses, coats, tops, maxi dresses and even belts off the racks. The shower coordinator decided to have the stylists as first activity for the night. Even before the girls finished off food on their dinner plates, some have already decided to check the clothes racks.





Then it was time to try on the dresses. The bride happily modelled the dresses for us and since this was technically her night, we all had utmost fun choosing which ones will look best on her. In less time, more of the girls chimed in to try and pose with the clothes.



Another highlight was listening to the stylists share fool-proof practical fashion tips to remember to ensure we keep ourselves relevantly styled for work or for everyday errands. Learned along with the girls on how to accurately wear jumpsuits, stripes, dresses with different cuts and different patterns. Also took home tips I can follow around choosing the perfect neckline, hem cut and even what can work for my body shape.

20151001_201805 20151001_201240I will definitely host one again, after all, things like these are best done with friendships and best done over meaningful celebrations.
