I was so fortunate to join last Saturday’s Good Housekeeping Mums of Manila event in SM Mall of Asia. When I got the invite I got pretty excited because of the workshops and stores. Well, I wasn’t disappointed in the event, although I came a little late cause I came from class. Fortunately, I was still able to listen to the last workshop on Calligraphy, taught by a professional teacher and calligraphy artist Paola Esteron and was accompanied by Staff Writer Nicole Sindiong.
Just a little bit about the event before I drown you about the calligraphy workshop. hihihi!
In celebration of Good Housekeeping’s 18th anniversary, Mums of Manila is Good Housekeeping Philippines’ way of interacting with their readers and supporters. MUMS stand for Modern Urban Moms, which is a perfect fit for me!! Mums of Manila is a whole day event where moms can Shop, Learn, and Enjoy themselves.
A series of workshops and talks were especially curated for the modern urban moms conducted by experts in their fields. The talks were for moms who’d love to look fab and stylish while doing the usual Mommy stuff and more. Talks on styling and beauty by Elaine Natividad, Beauty and Features Editor of Good Housekeeping and Lancome PH Ambassador for Make-Up Ara Fernando focus on topics about “10 Ways to Style your Scarf” and “Basic Brow Masterclass”. Both of which are easy and quick ways to keep Moms’ style and beauty in place. Another talks was about keeping the house clean, neat and organized, the “Say Goodbye to Kalat” is an guide to moms’ usual problems of clutter in the house by staying organized conducted by the Eidtor-in Chief Tisha. Food and health is also a priority for moms so the talk and workshop on food, health, and wellness was a must attend workshop during the event. Managing Editor, Angela Constantino talked about simple physical exercises that moms can do at home and some everyday fitness by Anika Ventura the professional travel and lifestyle writer and editor of Good Housekeeping. It was followed by a talk on food and health hacks which is something meaningful for busy moms wanting to provide nutritious food for the family. It was conducted by Roselle Miranda, Good Housekeeping’s Food Editor. Lastly, a hobby worth considering for moms was the last workshop, which was the calligraphy. Sorry I already gave you the information about it earlier. haha!
The event was raining raffles, giveaways, and freebies from the concessionaires which made the event even more exciting. Aside from the giveaways, mommies also took home some samples from the different concessionaires and join workshops all for free. Not to mention being with a group of people who have the same problems, challenges, and happiness as a mom. Now everything is more bearable because we moms know that there are other people who share the same experience and struggle with us. It also is great to know that Good Housekeeping PH is always there ready to support, guide, teach, and cheers us modern urban moms!
