Giveaways

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

I’m so tired. It’s probably since I haven’t been getting enough rest lately. My baby has been so hyper and what’s worse is that the height of her ‘kakulitan’ is in the evening. I don’t get to work and I feel less productive now that she can understand the things happening around her. She’s in the stage where she always wants to be with me and be cuddled by me (although I think that stage may really last for years). This is how she is in the evening.

Although she’s still my baby, she’s now my Zeeka Baby Kulit. Most of the time she smells like a baby, but little by little, I notice that she perspires a lot and is ‘amoy pawis’ at times. She she takes a bath twice a day and yet, she still smells at certain times of the day.

That’s where I’m thankful that we use Lactacyd. My baby has sensitive skin, which she got from me. For those who know me, they’ll tell you that I easily get red spots on my skin (even if I just carry my bag or take a bath), which goes away after a few minutes. We trust Lactacyd since it’s very mild and natural. When Zeeka was smaller, we used this.

But we recently shifted to this…

Baby Zeeka using Lactacyd Toddler Tubs

Zeeka is turning one this coming March so I already shifted to this product. The Lactacyd Toddler Tubs has the same active ingredients as with LBB (Lactoserum and Lactic Acid) with added moisturizers. The moisturizers locks in freshness all day and keeps active and growing toddlers protected all day. And that is the reason why I shifted to this product — to keep Zeeka Baby Kulit Anti Amoy Pawis all throughout the day/

Lactacyd toddler tubs

The two variants of Lactacyd Toddler tubs are Bubbles (baby fresh scent) and Splash (fruity scent). So if you want your baby to stay fresh and smell fresh all day long, wash your kid right with Lactacyd Toddler Tubs for anti-amoy pawis skin protection.

I can’t believe it that Mommy Ginger is already 1 year old this January. I’m actually very proud of what this site has accomplished in such a short time. In just one year, this site got a page rank 1 from Google (which normally takes years), an Alexa ranking of 2,660 in the Philippines (that means, i’m the 2660th site in our country among the millions of websites) and 480,218 in the world. For our social media pages, I got more than 4000 fans in Facebook, 745 in Twitter and 1100+ in Instagram.

And I owe it to all of you who continuously support my blog  and to the Lord up above. I thank Him for all of these achievements and blessings. Like any one, the past year for my blog has been filled with ups and downs — days when I’m inspired to write and days when I don’t feel like writing at all because of problems that beset me. But what keeps me going is the thought that I get to help others by sharing my own experiences, which I learned from and which I hope you, readers, will find value in.

With MommyGinger.com, I have met other mom bloggers and have gained a lot of new friends. I have also gained friends from the brands, sponsors and PR agencies that I have worked with. I have shared with you bits and pieces about my life and I have taken you with me as I journeyed through how I dealt with situations as a new mom to Zeeka. I hope you enjoyed the ride with me!

I also got to discover who I am and what Mommy Ginger wants to achieve this year and in the next few years. I want to give back to society, and I plan to do that by coaching as many women entrepreneurs and mompreneurs as possible.

I believe that there are a lot of women out there who are actually cut out to be entrepreneurs. They want to become one but don’t know how to be one. Mommy Ginger, through this site and through coaching sessions and through some workshops under the WAHMderful Life series, plans to help you achieve your dream of becoming an entrepreneur!

For this anniversary, I am raffling off three 1-time coaching sessions to three lucky individuals. This coaching session is the first out of my 5 part coaching session that I conduct with entrepreneurs. A coaching session lasts 90 minutes and it will be at CBTL Burgos Circle at your preferred schedule. All you have to do is follow the rafflecopter steps below.

Aside from this initiative of giving back to the society helping develop successful mompreneurs and women entrepreneurs, I also asked the support of some brands to give back to our society. This January, instead of having a big blog contest with lots of prizes, Mommy Ginger has opted to ask for donations of Vitameal bags for the Nourish the Children Foundation from advertisers, partners and mompreneur friends. A bag of Vitameal can provide for 30 meals for these starving children especially those affected by Typhoon Yolanda. Here are some information about Vitameal: Vitameal Fact Sheet

Here are the brands that donated and helped me help the children affected by Typhoon Yolanda:

I am truly thankful for the support that these brands have given. Thank you for making Mommy Ginger’s first year anniversary a fruitful one. For those brands, mompreneurs and mom bloggers who still want to donate, you can contact me at ginger(at)mommyginger(dot)com. Let’s keep the donations coming.

For those who want to attend, here is the form:

The first time I met Mariel from The Learning Basket, we talked about homeschooling, reading and raising children. I admire all of these homeschooling moms and their children. I’m thinking that it takes great discipline and effort to be able to go through the daily grind of teaching your children. Baby Zeeka is just 7 months and I haven’t really thought about whether I should homeschool or send her to traditional school. Before deciding, I know that I should look at homeschooling closely and learn more about it. That is why I’m excited for this homeschooling conference that is brought to you by Manila Workshops and The Learning Basket, and co-sponsored by Victory Christian International School, Digilearn Multimedia and Genyo e-Learning.

Project 20 You Can Homeschool Final 7

In this homeschooling conference, You Can Homeschool! Be Inspired, Be Informed, Be Empowered!, there will be different talks about homeschooling. The key speakers of the event, Thammie Sy, Frannie Daez, and Edric Mendoza, who have all found their calling in homeschooling their children will share insights and learnings. The event will be a whole day of learning on November 16, 2013, Saturday, 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM at One Events and Café, One Corporate Center, Julia Vargas cor Meralco Ave, Pasig City. The fee is at Php 1200 per attendee or if you are coming a a group of two or more, the fee will be at Php 1000 per participant. This already included lunch!

You can sign up using this form:

Some highlights to look forward to are the following:
• Be inspired by our speakers as they share about homeschooling from the heart, developing the homeschooling mindset, and how to homeschool in the Philippines
• Testimonials from children who have experienced learning at home.
• An overview of the homeschooling providers in the country, and the various services that they offer.
• Intimate break-out discussions with homeschooling parents

At the end of this summit, the event hopes to inspire parents to take on an active role in the education of their child, whether they decide to homeschool or not. The event wants parents to be empowered with the inspiration and knowledge they have gained to take on the role of “teacher” in their homes.

One of the sponsors of the event, Bee Happy Crafts and Party Supplies, will be giving away these prizes to one lucky winner through my blog:
