Mommy Mundo Expo Mom Promotes Mom Empowerment

Posted on

#TeamMom at the Mommy Mundo Expo Mom 2017! Go Mom Empowerment! Being part of Mommy Bloggers Philippines doesn’t limit my friendships or network rather it helps expand it. I love supporting fellow mom groups like Mommy Mundo and was happy to be at their first leg of Expo Mom for 2017.

Along with fellow mom and friends, Lani and Joy we visited Glorietta, Makati City where the latest and best in mom and baby products were being offered. I can’t help but make the same remark every time I’m at a baby expo. “Look at all the pretty things!”. Back when I had Bastian and Kianna designs and even products were so limited. Very much so. I also had to be practical and fearless because I was so young and didn’t have a clue as to what the hell I was doing. Fast forward to when I gave birth to Jael and I found that there were more mommy friendly products for me to use.

Moms have so many choices at the expo from clothing to toys to baby musts (wipes!!!). At these expos you will almost always walk away with good deals. It’s no wonder moms and moms to be flock to them looking for a way to help save just a little from the expenses.

More products to check out! There were so many but a few notable ones were Cusina, Belo Baby, and Bio Oil.

It’s always a pleasure seeing head mompreneur, Janice Villanueva who’s been just as supportive of Mommy Bloggers Philippines.

Watch out for the rest of the expos and join the #TeamMom Grand Giveaway!

Find Shopping Happiness at Novelty Store Tickles SM North EDSA

Posted on

If you want to find yourself in a place that will make you feel whimsical, laugh and ooh and ahh then Tickles is the place to be. A one of a kind novelty store, Tickles has opened its flagship store at SM North EDSA.

Tickles has been giving us quirky and fun knickknacks since the 80’s and with happiness being their guiding principle they have been successful at customers leaving with smiles on their faces. Tickles now designs and manufactures many of their gift items. Their goal is to be 100% self-branded producing wacky food-themed plushies and witty pillows, to funny and quirky accessories.

With the age of millenials upon us the Tickles Team has rebranded and debuted its retro European circus theme catering to the current generation without losing the nostalgia. All the new Tickles branches (Power Plant Mall, TriNoma, UP Town Center, Robinson’s Place Manila) have the circus theme with the rest of the stores to be updated soon.

The kids and I perused the store looking for items we wanted to get. With all the items they have you’re sure to find something for yourself, your friends and your family.

As I looked around the store I could see many things that I wanted. Some were just too cute for words like there pillows. I loved their unicorn pillows and the food plushies are so much fun. They even have a boyfriend pillow which was funny at first but looked like a good idea after awhile!

Jael was excited about all the stuffed toys and plushies. If he had his way he would have taken them all home. He did bring home a plushie though. Just scroll all the way down to see what he got!

I had my eye on items that would work for our home. Bastian was pushing me to get this Welcome Aboard item but the practical side of me is putting off getting it. Our home is still in the works. It would totally look great in my office though! I’m taking you home soon!

Above all, #TeamMom cheers her through every moment and milestone, whether big or small.

#TeamMom Rocks!
