SM SuperMoms: Mom and Me Digital Conference - What's In Store on #NationalSuperMomsDay2018 at SM SUPERMALLS

Mall of Asia Arena Complex, Pasay City on May 11 - A digital media conference was held at Gringo's to launch the #SuperMom QR Code Hunting and the numerous deals, finds and activities that are happening on Mother's day weekend or SM calls it as #NationalSuperMomsDay2018. The conference was graced with celebrity supermoms like Chynna Ortaleza-Cipriano, Princess Velasco and Sandy De Leon. Bb. Pilipinas-International 2017, Mariel De Leon was also part of the celebrity list as she graced the cover of SM's ShopMag with her mother, Sandy in its Mothers' Day theme. 

A brief description of the #SuperMoms campaign was launched in 2016 to pay tribute to mothers who are considered silent superheroes of the family. Jonjon San Agustin, SM Supermalls Senior Vice President for Marketing, shared that  SM has paid tribute to all the Super Mommy shoppers who have been largely part of SM's story over the years. Thus, the #nationalSuperMomsDay2018 hashtag was created to signify these superheroes in our daily lives. It is also SM Supermalls' #HappyAwesome60SM celebrating their 60th anniversary. 

This intimate digital media conference also highlights how "millennial motherhood" (or parenting) is different since there's online references, social media, and social media groups (and a whole lot of references). Sandy De Leon shared how she learned motherhood by going through the motions of her own experiences, from her mother and other female role models in her family. The digital media friends (specifically mommy writers, editors, press, bloggers, vloggers alike) had a chance to ask questions about motherhood to the celebrity moms. The celebrity moms and Jonjon San Agustin shared heart-warming insights and inspiring stories and tips as they happily answered the questions. 

Celebrity Moms: Princess, Chynna, Sandy and Bb. PIlipinas INternational, Mariel De Leon shared their inspiring stories. Check out their inspiring stories on my next post. :)

As an amateur blogger, this is an amazing opportunity to be invited and be a part of the #SMcommunity #SMFamily to cover special occasions and events. I liked how intimate the event was with just the right number of digital media friends. Nachos were great and too bad, I had to leave just when lunch was served. The staff from the event and Gringo were very polite and accommodating. There were no snobbish or judge-y type of staff at all! The program was executed flawlessly and I like the energy and the vibe of the host, Maribeth and the special guests. 

Here are some of my SM Digital Media Conference hauls: a nice fluffy Mom pillow, a Toblerone bar, our PR Kit and our souvenir photo at the bloggers/writers table. 

I'd like to end this blog with Chynna Ortaleza-Cipriano's touching message to all SuperMOms out there:

"Hi SuperMOms, happy Mothers' day and don't forget, don't feel guilty if you feel  you need to celebrate yourself. Take this day to really pat yourself at the back for a job well done. And also, don't forget to always put the fun in motherhood. I think it's very important. "

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:
