My Current Favorite Fragrances 

My current favorite fragrances. 

Atkinsons Love in Idleness: powdery and floral. This fragrance is perfect for sunny days. 

Cadentia Fleur d’ Oranger: Vanilla & orange. I love this for rainy sweater work days. I just need to sniff my wrists for a pick me up. 

Jo Malone Tobacco & Mandarin: perfect for evenings out when I want something earthy with a bit of citrus zest! 

Special shout out to @marmolstonework for my gorgeous marble top. I’m in love. 


Baby Barangay: Liana X Nara Birthday Party

Baby Barangay princesses Liana and Nara recently had a joint birthday party to celebrate their turning 4 and 2. This was the first time I’ve put together a joint birthday party with a friend and I have to say that if all friends are as chill and awesome as Bianca Santiago Reinoso, I would happily do it again!

I’ve never been a huge fan of parties with programs, quite simply because it’s not easy to keep the attention of very young kids. So Bianca and I made sure to choose activities that the kids could do at their own time, so they could learn to also entertain themselves. It’s safe to say everyone had a blast with all our wonderful suppliers making sure that everyone, parents included, had a good time! Here are some photos of our super fun day! The list of all our suppliers is at the end of this blog entry.

This party wouldn’t have been as amazing if not for these wonderful suppliers. We can’t recommend booking them enough for your own events!

Carnival Party Needs & Catering Service: Tables, chairs, cutlery, glasses, and delicious food. All for a price that won’t hurt your wallet. (mobile #: 0917-537-9145)

Karabella Dairy: Did you know that 98% of the milk we drink in the Philippines is imported? Karabella Dairy is hoping to give our local dairy industry a boost by creating delicious carabao’s milk ice cream in an assortment of flavors for your events. Their booth is the cutest thing too!

Mind Box PH: These awesome tables filled with lego or mega blocks are a great addition to any party. Kids who love building things will be hooked!

The Nest Play & Party Pad: If you’re planning a party for a toddler, we can’t recommend the Nest’s set up enough. Imagine a small town filled with numerous activities for your toddler and their friends to play in. This area kept the kids busy for HOURS. I say ditch the program, hosts, and magicians, and just offer your birthday celebrant and guests this super fun experience!

WhiteBox PH: For those that want their parties to look pretty, but might not have the budget to hire a decorator. We can’t vouch for Whitebox enough. You simply share your needs and party’s theme with them and they create a number of adorable decorations and items delivered straight to your doorstep for you! Too perfect!!

Pancake House PH: When you want to make sure your suppliers are well fed and fuelled for the day, we trust the delicious club sandwiches from Pancake House. We also made sure to grab lots of their delicious pan-fried chicken to serve at the party. Because what’s a kiddie party without friend chicken?

Dolcissima: delicious cakes and cupcakes (0999) 588 4621 

Hotdog/ Snowcone booth Jeanelle Cadiz 09567003915/ 09215559999

I hope you enjoyed these pretty photos! A big thank you again to everyone who helped make this day special for our little girls. 🙂
