Giveaways

Mommy Ginger feels the love so she’s paying it forward through these awesome giveaways!

Yesterday, I shared with you the story of Leah Dy, the mompreneur behind Fruits in Bloom. I mentioned that we have a surprise for MommyGinger.com’s readers. Today, we are giving out a Fruits in Bloom basket from the Valentine’s Day collection. This giveaway will run from today (January 27, 2015) to February 10, 2015. The winner must be willing to pick up the prize either from Rockwell or Robinson’s Magnolia Mall on February 12-13, 2015. This basket will be a nice gift for that special someone!

I already received mine and it’s gorgeous! The fruits are really fresh and the chocolate covered ones are just heavenly.I didn’t want to open it, but my daughter wanted to eat the grapes inside so I had no choice.

Here are some pictures of the Fruits in Bloom arrangement that I got.

The fruit arrangement arrived in a very classy box. You can actually open the box so that you don’t ruin how the fruity, flower-like arrangement is made. Check out my pics of unboxing this masterpiece!

Look at how wonderful it looks. The arrangement had pineapple, apples, grapes, oranges and strawberries in it. I really loved the chocolate covered strawberries!

I remember looking through photo albums kept at my grandmother’s house (as in tons of them). They contained pictures of my childhood and even pictures of my parents and aunts and uncles during their younger years. I loved looking at those pictures, even if for most of them, I wasn’t born yet. I loved looking at them because it gave me a sense of how my parents and relatives were when they were younger. I also showed me pictures of when I was still a baby. Obviously I couldn’t remember each moment, but looking at these pictures made me FEEL the love that I was showered with. This is why we, as a family, had Louie Arcilla take photos of our family.

When I first met Louie and when I told him that we were game to do a family photo shoot, I was afraid to tell him that I wasn’t really the type who would pose in front of the camera. Well, my husband and I are like that. We hate posing. We both feel awkward. We actually decided to have a family shoot because we wanted our daughter to have pictures that she could browse through when she was older. I want her to have the same opportunity and experience of looking through old photos and photos of herself when she was younger.

So fast forward to the day of the shoot, Louie came in at exactly 2:00 PM as we discussed. It was a gloomy day and it was drizzling, so I immediately thought that I was super unlucky. We didn’t have a good lighting source. We couldn’t go out. Also, when Louie arrived, Zeeka was sleeping, so we had to wait for her to wake up. We talked first about his business and brand Louie Arcilla Life+Style Photography. I always felt his passion for his craft. The thing about Louie is that when you talk to him, he is very down to earth and easy to talk to. It’s as if you have been talking to a friend whom you have known for for years. That’s why I think Zeeka loved him immediately.

Zeeka would normally go into tantrums and would squeal and scream when a ‘new and unfamiliar’ person would carry her. But not with Louie! Zeeka just met him that day and after the shoot, she kept on saying ‘Louie… Louie’. She even allowed him to carry her. The shoot went well and you know why? Louie didn’t ask us to pose. He just made us do normal things — things that we would do on a daily basis like sit on the couch, carry Zeeka, play with Zeeka, talk to Zeeka, etc. We didn’t have to pose! Thank, God! Zeeka was the one you posed for us. Haha!

But it was all so natural and light. What I was worried about though was if the the pictures would come out clear. I hated that it was such a gloomy day. But guess, what?! When I got the pictures from Louie, I was blown away. Here are some of the pictures…

Yummy, drool-worthy food products will also be sold during bazaar hours. All these at negotiable, easy-on-the-pocket prices!

To continue providing a family-friendly bazaar experience, special function areas will still be available for free for all visitors, these are the following: The Sulit Breastfeeding station, The Maya Kitchen play area, 88DB Daddy Waiting Lounge and the Mega Soft diaper change area. Besides, Sulit and 88DB, this event is also graced by the participation of WhenInManila.com as one of its online media partners.
