One of the highlights of my previous year was definitely this one, the first blogger’s Christmas Party I’ve attended. It was Mommy Bloggers Philippines’ first Christmas party and after a month of preparation, thanks to my co-blogger’s support especially Louisa of ArtOfBeingAMom.com and Joy of JoyGurtiza.com, the event turned out to be a successful one.
The Christmas Party was held last December 5, at Spaces by Babyland. It was on the 2nd floor of the store building, an intimate space where more than 30 moms gathered, some seeing the others for the very first time. We all wore shades of blue to follow the theme of Winter Wonderland. I think the theme was just fitting for the year, first because it’s quite a cold December this year, and second, the Frozen theme song is still very popular. White and blue are elegant colors which gave the moms the necessary excuse to wear something girly-girl on this event.
As hosts, our trio decided to have some colors put on our faces. Thanks to Jocelyn Bay, who happened to be my colleague from my Globe Telecom IPC days, she made us three look fresh despite of the rigid schedule we had preparing the party. Jo did a wonderful job. By the way, Jo is an affiliate and got her makeup training by Mary Kay.
The party started out with some glamor shots by Yeah, Shoot!
This is one of the best photo booth I’ve experienced plus their service is unique because you can choose the background from their computer screen. You just stand there in front of a big green background and then they will do wonders.
Who would imagine that one can attend a party with 3 caterers without having your stomach blasting out ? 🙂 Fortunately, with my nervousness, I wasn’t able to eat that much. Good thing they let us take out some of the food. Biruin mo yon, may food na, may take out pa? 🙂
The dessert will be another whole story. Love Desserts made me fall in love with sweets over and over again. And guess what, they will be opening a branch soon in Fairview. My sweet-toothed family is looking very much forward to their opening.
Raffle and Giveaways
A blogger’s party won’t be complete without raffle and giveaways and we had more than plenty on this Winter Wonderland Party.

Gifts from Blogger Moms
And of course, we had the traditional exchange gifts and I got these super cool gifts from my co-bloggers. I am taking the opportunity to mention them now because they are not only pretty but very useful too 🙂
So timing since I am currently refreshing my goal to lose weight and this runner cap will definitely be put into good use! Fits my head perfectly, comfortable to wear, and I love it’s color.
A super pretty, spacious, and durable bag from Sunshine&Citrus – (Bag and Luggage Store) – Check S&C’s Facebook page here!
I won this from Mommy May Palacpac of Fully Housewifed blog giveaway promo, whoohoo! I love this bag because it’s of my favorite color, gives me ample space for my stuff, durable and not so easily scratched or get dirty. I need this kind of bag because I’m usually in a hurry and I just want to put my all my things inside my bag. I also need something easy to clean just like this one.
Given as a Christmas gift by Mommy May, thank you so much for this gift. I wear it more often now than any of my watches because my daughter’s photo is here. I don’t know but I just love wearing my daughter’s faces on my wrist, I guess 🙂 I thought neon pink isn’t easy to combine with my clothes but honestly, this watch looks good to partner with most of my blouses.
