South PiNanays' The Great Cloth Diaper Change!

I actually regret finding about and being exposed to Cloth Diapering as Moms I know who practice say it's more practical and most importantly, environment friendly.

But it's never too late to support the cause!

Let's join SPiN's (South Pinanays) GCDC event and change cloth diapers with the rest of the mommies of the world just like on Earth Hour.

Here are the juicest deets:

---------------------------------

Change starts with you!

Join South PiNanays (SPiN) in the Great Cloth Diaper Change (GCDC) where families will simultaneously change baby diapers and hope to enter the Guinness World Record for the ‘most cloth diapers changed’ at one time. This event will be held on April 23, 2016 at 2L Carousel Court, Festival Mall, Alabang, Muntinlupa City, from 10am to 4pm. There will also be talks on cloth diapering, breastfeeding, and oral care and dental health. 

The GCDC is an annual worldwide event created by the Real Diaper Association that aims to spread awareness about the benefits of cloth diapering, advocating cloth diapers as an environment-friendly choice for families. Last year’s record logs 280 unique locations worldwide with 7,441 babies changed, including 34 participants in the event organized by SPiN in Alabang.

Nina Atienza, founder and president of SPiN, shares that there are more options when it comes to cloth diapering aside from the humble lampin. "The lampin of old is no longer the only option because now there is a wide range of modern cloth diaper systems available at different price points and without the chemicals, which make them gentler on our baby's skin! CDs also help save money because you can just purchase 24 pieces and reuse even for succeeding children."

This event is done in partnership with Modern Cloth Nappying Pinays (MCNP), Breastfeeding Pinays, Mommy Talk Philippines, and Newlyweds@Work. MCNP will be holding a separate event in San Juan, Metro Manila. 

Sponsors for the SPiN GCDC include Festival Mall, David's Salon, Sylergy, Sydenase, Tempra, Green Cross, Zonrox, PeeWee Explorers, The Nest, Kidsmile Pediatric Dental Clinic, and Ingente-Valencerina Photography.

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:

The Ultimate Guide to Being a Benefit Babe

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…

Carrier Review: Baby SaBye Mei Tai

Type of Carrier: Baby SaBye Mei Tai
Carrier details: Mei Tai  - reversible blue and red; standard size; handwoven 100% natural cotton; vegetable dye
The back is 14.5 inches (at waist) and 16 inches (at shoulder) wide; 17 inches tall without waist strap. Each shoulder strap is 9.5 to 10.5 inches wide, and 87 inches long. Waist strap is 3 inches wide and 69 inches long.
Wrappee:  BabyG (boy)– 10 months – 10kgs/22 lbs
Wrapper:  small – chubby build –US size 10

First glance – Baby Sabye Mei Tai looked thick and a bit rough. This is my first time to try a mei tai and I had some reservations with the straps, the size where Baby G will “sit on”  and if it can withstand Baby G’s weight on the get-go. When I tried tying the waist belt, it was crunchy and I made an effort to tighten the knot to secure it. The straps were thinner than the waist belt which was floppy and flexible. When I wore Baby G, it was an instant hit with us!





This Mei Tai has been with us for about 3 weeks because we had other test…
