Carrier Review: Soul Slings' Ring Sling Celadon - Handwoven

 post washed and braided for almost a week to break in

 Soul Slings' tester stash: pre-washed

Type of Carrier: Soul Slings’ Ring Sling
Wrap details: Celadon (teal green); 100% cotton – handwoven; 28 inches wide and 83 Inches long
Wrappee:  BabyG (boy)– 10 months – 10kgs/22 lbs
Wrapper:  small – chubby build

First glance – It was stiff and neatly ironed when I first had my hands on Celadon. It seemed unyielding to my molding powers as I braided it to be less “beastly”. Like most 100% cotton handwoven wraps, this needs more breaking in compared to Sapphire 100% linen which was lightweight, floppy and a tad slippy. Once broken in, Celadon is very supportive and essentially maintains grip to lock your sling position in place.

Design – 100% cotton blend can be a little thicker compared to its linen sling sisters. Yet still breathable but not as cool and breezy like linen. Celadon with white stripes is, again, gender neutral.

Weather/season – I recommend wearing this on a windy day if you stay in tropical places. Good with different seasons but not toasty enough for autumn or winter, so layer up accordingly.

Our little sling meet - SPiN mommies (mostly from Las Pinas)

One SPiN Mommy tried Celadon for her 9 week old baby girl after the flash mob.
She said that the Celadon felt nice and grippy on the shoulder and her squish is snug as a bug. 
note: she changed from SSC to a Ring sling without waking up baby ;)

Type/s of carry – mostly front carries; when I had some Mommy friends try it during our little sling meet and after our first Babywearing Flash mob in the Philippines (by South Pinanays group), most of them, first timers and experienced sling Mommas alike,  raved how supportive it is on the shoulder and the carry itself.

Mummy budget –it’s yours for around $31, what a deal!

Sunny summary – 4.5 sprinkles of sleepy “soulful” dust – toddler worthy!

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:
