A Day With Other Mom Bloggers... Thanks Unilab!

Posted by Nica at 1:31 PM
One of the dilemmas of being a mother is living your kid behind and treating yourself to a day of pampering and pleasure. This is especially true if you've got a baby or a toddler that's attached to you like an additional body part. You just can't bear to leave your kid for a couple of hours alone with your husband or nanny. You're always worried that something untoward might happen.

But mommies need some "me" time, too.  An afternoon of luxurious pampering or bonding time with friends. This personal times allows mommies to recharge themselves and come back at home better mommies. And Unilab understands it. Last Monday, October 11, Unilab treated a small group of mom bloggers to a luxurious Mommy's Day Out in Linden Suites.

The afternoon started with a very filling lunch buffet. Over lasagna (a favorite of mine and gabby),  buttered veggies breaded fish sticks, chicken, lemon squares and fresh fruits for dessert, mom bloggers exchanged amusing  tales about pregnancy cravings, potty training, and delivery tales. On a more serious note, we shared ways on how we can earn while we're staying at home as full-time mommies.

Then the "mind pampering" started. After the very insightful welcome remarks from Jack Orendain of Unilab on the importance of spending quality time alone, beauty coach Ms Marie Calica gave us some must-follow beauty mantras that are guaranteed to keep us looking young and beautiful at our later years.

Next on the programme is the personal beauty makeup workshop with Anjie Gogna. She's a very charming -- and pretty -- makeup artist who taught us all we need to know about everyday makeup. The highlight of her workshop is the demonstration when she gamely answered questions from the her small audience. Suffice to say that I'd be coming more dolled up in my next event than usual, thanks to Anjie.

Finally, the real pampering began at Linden Suites' Mane Depot. We were treated to a refreshing hair spa, foot spa, manicure and pedicure. This provided an opportunity for us to get to know each other more intimately. Of course, there was blog talk and Wordpress and Google got discussed this time around. Since we all have kids to get home to, the ones who finished first left earlier and I was the second to the last one to go.

 I personally would like to commend Unilab and Wanda A. Pascua for what I think to be a very successful event. It was truly a Mommy's Day Out. I also welcome these mommy bloggers to my list:
