Advance happy Valentine’s everyone!!! Do you already have plans for V-day tomorrow? Well, Randy and I originally planned to watch the Julia Fordham show/concert at the Grand Ballroom of Solaire. I’ve long wanted to watch a jazz concert at a small venue, and I love Julia Fordham’s soothing voice! However, two things made me decide not to push through: first, we expect a lot of enrollees and phone calls tomorrow; second, we also expect heavy traffic, bilang Valentine’s Day tapos Friday pa! I just told Randy babawi kami Valentine’s015.
Well speaking of Valentine’s, I’ve been wearing a lot of red this love month. My favorite color is yellow but lately, I find myself gravitating towards the color of love. Take, for example, my outfits on February 1 when Raviv and I attended two disparate events at Bonifacio Global City.
Our first stop was at the launch of the Johnson’s Baby Play Factory, held at Active Fun. For this, I wore something comfy—“mom fashion” talaga—as I knew I’d be running after my little boy from time to time. Here I was at the event:
- scoop-necked peplum red top: Greenhills Shopping Center
- denims: Giordano
- brown sandals: Outland (you just gotta love Outland! Sturdy and very comfy!!!)
- leather bag: Balenciaga Giant Velo in Anthracite [I know I know—lagi na lang ito ang bag ko! I’m just so in love with this bag! IMHO, dark-colored Balenciagas are perfect for moms—fashionable, very lightweight, roomy, and convertible (can be worn as a shoulder bag and as a cross-body bag)!]
You know I was eager to attend this event because both Raviv and I are true-blue Johnson’s Baby products users. I grew up seeing Johnson’s everywhere—Motherhood would not let us use any other product! It was always Johnson’s Baby Powder, Baby Shampoo, Baby Lotion, Baby Cologne, Baby Bath…basta puro Johnson’s! When I was young I wanted Motherhood to buy something else but she wouldn’t! In fact, when our nannies would use something else on us, Motherhood would wrinkle her nose and say, “Hmpft ang baho! Masangsang!” And you know what, I get her now, that’s why Raviv also uses Johnson’s! Johnson’s Baby products have that smell that’s neither too strong nor the least masangsang…in fact, the scents of its products are always mild and gentle at nakakaadik! Something one can never get enough of! To illustrate how much I love J&J products, eto ha, when I was pregnant, I had a really bad case of hyperemesis gravidarium…the scent of practically everything made me throw up! I hated the scent of any shampoo, of any soap, of any perfume, of any food…basta lahat! Except for Johnson’s Baby Lotion (the pink one). I loved it so much that when I don’t like what I’m smelling, I would open a bottle and sniff it. And I would feel better. Until now, it’s the lotion I use. 😉
Anyway, back to the event. The program was short, simple and sweet. We were basically made to realize by the event that powder time could be fun! Raviv and I were accompanied by Kuya Dodong (who drove for us) and by Yaya Gigi. Naku when Cha Cha Canete was called, kinilig nang todo si Yaya—hindi mapakali! Especially when she sang “Let It Go”.
In fairness, ganda ng boses ng bagets. Sabi ni Gigi kinilabutan daw siya sa boses ni Cha Cha.
Yaya Gigi badly wanted to have her photo taken with Cha Cha. However after the merienda, Yaya Gigi saw Cha Cha and Carl playing at Active Fun. Yaya begged me to be the one to accompany Raviv inside. OK fine. But before that, Raviv and I went to a toy store.
Nothing in particular caught the little boy’s fancy—probably because he was just so eager to play inside Active Fun! So after a while she and Yaya Gigi entered. Yaya kept on looking around for Cha Cha.
So imagine Yaya Gigi’s disappointment when, upon entering Active Fun, Cha Cha and Marc have already gone back to the function hall where the program was held. And ang ikinahihinayang ni Yaya sa lahat ay…
…ako ang may picture sa dalawang artistang bagets! Ahehehe!!! She was disappointed yet still happy because she had the opportunity to see the child stars.
And after this, I changed outfit na rin for the Gingersnaps 20th Anniversary and Fashion Show. And guess what…red pa rin ang isinuot ko! Mas machoray na outfit itey, so abangan!!!
Have a steamy Valentine’s with your loved ones, you all! Mwah mwah!!!
Tell me what you think!
