SPiN's First Advocacy Fashion Show 2016

South Pinanays (SPiN) celebrated their 3rd anniversary this year by showcasing their very own SPiN Moms, Dads and their cute little ones on the runway. This is the first ever advocacy fashion show that SPiN came up with and probably the first in the country. Outfits were mainly from a fashionable nursing wear brand, Mommyfide, which was founded and owned by mom-preneur and SPiN admin, Katrina Ambion. 

The Fashion Show was the program's highlight of the event last October 8, 2016 at the Activity Center in Alabang Town Center. Participants and even shoppers all around were captivated by the show. 

The runway was opened by Camille Manalo who was wearing a Mommyfide Gray Basic T-Shirt dress while rocking a ninja-like glove for her sprained wrist but that did not stop her from strutting on the runway. She was tandem-wearing her toddlers in size 6 Risaroo Dogwood Emerald woven wrap and a shorty Kokoro woven wrap. 

My top carrier picks that day were: 

Madame Goo Goo Mesh in Nautical Grey pattern

Madame  Goo Goo in Little Triangles with a Butterfly pattern on the waist belt and Kokoro Candy Striped Ring Slings

Baby SaBye Mei Tai in Pink and Grey natural, organic dyes

Witnessing this Fashion Show live, it was just surreal and electrifying. It sure feels like being surrounded by the super stars of brands and Mom-preneurs. Theres a sense of pride being in the sea of moms and dads.

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:
