A Gift of Wellness from GlamourBox and Nurture Spa

Standard

Isn’t it nice if you can treat your mom somewhere she can relax even just for awhile? Moms deserve it right?

That’s why I really work hard to win some contests for Mother’s Day. But sadly, Mother’s Day came and I did not receive any notification from the giveaways I joined. So, I thought I did not win any. I just treated mom and my siblings with pizza during Mother’s Day but I think that it would be very nice if I will be able to add it with something that mom will really enjoy.

Until last week, a friend from Facebook tagged me at a post of GlamourBoxPH. Yehey! I got a prize for mom. Better late than never as they say.

I'm so happy for mom!

I hope she will enjoy her “Gift of Wellness”.  Anyway without her, I will not win that giveaway. Because of her most treasured beauty advice to me, I will stay pretty, loved and happy for the rest of my life. *wink*

Our Simple Mothers’ Day Celebration

Standard

Today is Mothers’ Day! And almost everyone is celebrating the gift of having that woman who will surely sacrifice anything for her children.

In our family, we are lucky to have this beautiful woman who always sees to it that she meets all our needs. I am a member of her 6 intelligent children (lol! as she says…) and because it is her special day we prepare a little something to celebrate it.

This is the 6 lovely children of my mom and dad.

I prefer to have a photo post of it because as they say, a picture paints a thousand words. So, here it is…

My simple photo collage for mom. She can be my adviser, my playmate, my shoppingmate or just someone who can listen to my endless stories about my experience <3 A FRIEND.

Our youngest was the event coordinator. She is willing to give out her savings plus our youngest brother's just to have a share to the pot luck for Mothers' Day... Sweet right?

So this is her final list of our shares. My baby sister check on everyone and asked one by one about our share for Mothers' Day Celebration.

The celebration will not be complete without this simple treats for mom. 🙂

The famous pansit bihon from Michael's Lomi House. I prefer to order the foods this time rather to cook because I was not sure if I can finish cooking all the dishes  for this special day.

It was simple yet fun! A humbling experience as they say. You don’t need to really spent all your money just to tell how special your mother to you. Just a simple and sincere gesture will always do. Truly, Mothers’ Day should not just be celebrated once a year. As much as possible, we should try to make our mothers feel that they are loved every moment of the year.

So there was our simple celebration sweeties. How about you? how did you spent Mothers’ Day?

Again… Happy Mothers’ Day to all the mothers out there 🙂 Enjoy!
