Carrier Review: Soul Slings' Sapphire Sling Ring

Type of Carrier: Soul Slings’ Ring Sling
Carrier details: Sapphire (Dark Blue); 100% linen – machine woven; 27 inches wide and 83 Inches long
Wrappee:  BabyG (boy)– 10 months – 10kgs/22 lbs
Wrapper:  small – chubby build

My first impression was it was very thin, light and flimsy. I was thinking my 10-kilo/22lb champ may be too much to handle for this. Soul Slings Ring Slings’ limit is 15gs or about 27lbs.

For my first test run, I wore him at a local flea market to shop for about 2 hours and he was really well-behaved and content being with Mommy all the time (except for occasional curious moments when he wiggles his  arms out and reach for stuff when I’m not looking!). It was not diggy on my shoulders and I just needed to adjust whenever I needed.

Design – This is a breezy, wafer thin linen sling and surprisingly tenacious for a single layer! Navy or Dark blue is neutral enough to be gender-friendly and can match any outfit since it’s a flexible color. This can definitely fit into your bag without any problems.

Don’t worry about the little lint for the first few times of wearing, it’s a normal for natural linen fibers to be that way. I had to wash this 3 times before the pilling goes away. So, be careful when wearing white or any light color if you’ve only washed it once and plan to wear it for about an hour or so.

Weather/season – Perfect for hot/humid weather; tropical season. It can be used for other cooler seasons as it does not add to “beefy” layers of clothes on.

Type/s of carry -  The single layer linen is slightly slippery at first but once you get the tail well-adjusted, it sticks to its position and it’s not diggy at all. Baby can just pop in and out as he/she pleases.

I also tried the back carry and I have yet to master it further. It needed further adjustments and it can get diggy on the shoulders especially if you’re wearing something sleeveless. Nonetheless, I really do admire it for its supportive nature.

Mummy budget – Snag this away for just under $31 or 1,460 php!

Sunny summary – Ultra light but power packed with sleepy dust and comfort at a reasonably price- I give it 4 sprinkles of sleepy dust out of 5!

Sling meet with the SPiN mommies and they got to try Sapphire, Celadon and Coal Chambray :)

Read my next post for its comparative review with its handwoven 100% cotton cousin, Celadon. ;)

GRAND OPENING PROMO on Mary Pauline Main Square Mall

How long since you visited your “mother ship”, Momma?  We all know that nice hair, nice nails definitely need maintenance. It’s high time to pamper yourself after maintaining EVERYTHING. I’m just pretty excited to let you know that there’s a new, hot salon right now!
My good friend and mom-preneur, Mia, just recently opened her Mary Pauline Salon – Main Square Mall in Bacoor, Cavite. Who knew that her hobbies and interests in beauty and make-up turned into her business someday? Don’t get me started on how we got to where we are now since we have a history of taking Biology in college. Funny how life turned out for us!
Mary Pauline MSM is a full service salon from nails to hair; they even have Gluta IV drip which I’d love to try soon. They also have Eyebrow embroidery coz, of course, Kilay is LIfe. They had their Grand Opening on October 28, 2017 with smashing discounts. They had a ribbon cutting and catering for this special occasion.

I can’t help but feel the need to share THEIR FABULO…

Benefit and Mommievents has teamed up to set up The Ultimate Guide to Being a Benefit Babe workshop which showcased how to do brows and make up just like a Certified Benebabe. This took place in the charming Benefit boutique at Alabang Town Center on April 29, 2017.

Participants witnessed make up techniques and tips from the workshop instructor: Jedd Entilla, Benefit Makeup & Brow Expert. Since it's a Benefit workshop, the participants got their hands on Benefit products which was everyone's favorite part.

There were snacks and refreshments. There were loot bags that have Benefit giveaways.

The workshop started with introductions by Desha Buen, Benefit Assistant Expert and Camille Manalo from Mommievents. The participants were grouped together to gear up for the workshop's agenda. There were two groups: Marshmallow Mamas and Glam Girls. They had a short group introduction by making a cheer presentation before they star…

A Chat with a Top Model: Chesca Lagua

Benefit and Mommievents recently paired up and created a workshop called The Ultimate Guide to Being a Benefit Babe at the dainty Benefit store in Alabang Town Center. Franchesca Lagua is one of the event ambassadors alongside DJ Sexy Megan from Yes FM. Chesca graced us with her top model presence and with an extra helping of sky high legs and ultra lean figure from Shanna Retuya (ramp/commercial/Philippine Fashion week model). 

Although the pair towered all of us, they were the most down-to-earth darlings. They were up for selfies and quick chats with participants. I took the opportunity to take a selfie with Chesca which would seemingly look like Lady Galadriel and a hobbit would photograph together. She hunched halfway as I tiptoed, tilted and angled my phone so both of us can fit into the frame.

Before I transform this feature into some LOTR geekery, here's the score on Chesca's make-up go-to and the real deal on Asia's Next Top Model:
