27 Mar Welcoming Sabs Hernandez’s Baby Boy with Rustan’s
Babies, babies, babies! I’m always elated whenever friends conceive and begin their journey to motherhood. Motherhood is one of the best things I’ve done with my life so far and I would indeed count it as one of my top experiences. Last week I was invited to Sabs Hernandez’s (aka The Makeup Maven‘s) baby shower thrown by Rustan’s for Baby Henri at the Raffles Makati Writers Bar. It was a fun afternoon of delicious high tea, games, and of course chika, and I’m glad I was able to meet more beauty bloggers.
Sabs had registered at Rustan’s for her essentials and when I picked out my gift, I of course wanted something she would find useful if not a can’t-live-without. Some of the things I found to be an essential were already picked by other guests (drats!) but I was still able to find something. It’s actually something my husband and I could never leave the house without maybe up until a few months back, when V started wearing pull-up diapers 24/7. A portable diaper changing kit! When we would run a few errands or just go to the grocery, my husband would always just pick her up in whatever clothes she’s wearing (often in pambahay!), take the diaper changing kit, and go!
It was my first time to shop with Rustan’s for a baby shower, I had registered there for my wedding a few years back, and it was a good experience. I barely had to move–maybe because the felt bad for me and my belly but they processed everything for me! I didn’t have to go to the counter to pay. And surprisingly, when I returned a few days later to buy a maternity belt for myself, they did the same thing! My aching back and legs love you, Rustan’s! 🙂
We played #StyleYourBaby, where we dressed up “Baby Henri” in cute little boy clothes, a who-can-drink-juice-from-the-baby-bottle fastest game (they used Pigeon bottles, my favorite! And the only thing that worked on V!), a “The Price is Right” game for baby items, and of course, guess the chocolate poop in the diaper game which I participated in. Too bad my pregnant nose wasn’t enough to win the game! I should have just tasted the chocolates, no shame! Hehe.
Thank you, Sabs, for having me at your baby shower! I wish you an easy delivery, quick recovery and a joyful foray into motherhood. 🙂 I rejoice with you and your family. Congratulations! God is good 🙂
