YELLOWMUM: #oliviarobynturns1 Party Stylist and Theme

One of the things I wanted for sure was a nice party for Robyn. I just think that since you're already spending for the party, might as well make it presentable. Presentable doesn't always mean expensive. It only means you put more thought into the decor and feel.

I suck at DIYs. I really do. Also, having a little girl with no help really take up a lot of my time. You see I'm a full time mom yet I have work on the side and I do makeup jobs as well. Did I mention I also cook and clean the house? So I knew I wouldn't be able to do it efficiently and beautifully.

My husband agrees. He told me that it's better to hire a party stylist so that I won't have to bother and worry about the decor. This was a very easy decision for us since we initially was going to have the party and the baptism on the same day. I knew I wouldn't have time to check on the venue before the guests arrive, so having a party stylist will allow me to keep my sanity. Haha!

At first, I had 3 party stylists in mind and upon talking to them, I chose The Party Studio. I stumbled upon their Facebook page and fell in love with their decor. They sent me their packages and I chose the Posh Shabby package which consists of mostly lanterns and paper pompoms. The other package uses balloons as their main decor. But since Robyn's a girl and I wanted it quite girly, I knew a chic design was the best.

They have a package that already includes the host/magician/ventriloquist so I got that. That means less stress for me to find a host/magician. Just to let you know he was actually good and very entertaining! There were games not just for the kids but even for adults too. I also got their photobooth and their candy buffet. But more on that later. ;)

Pinky, who's the owner of The Party Studio was very easy to talk to. She was very accomodating and was quite helpful during the event itself. I admit I'm a very meticulous and OC woman. I've always been. It's both my stregth and my flaw. So I knew that even though I wouldn't be the one designing the venue, I wanted to be very hands on with the inspiration and design. So I asked if we'd be able to have meetings before the event and she said yes. Unfortunately, we were only able to meet once during the contract signing. The rest of the conversation was done thru emails.

I sent a lot of different inspirations and ideas that I wanted. I searched the net for a whole lot of photos and looks that I wanted to incorporate in the party. The theme that I chose was Ice Cream Party. Simply because I wanted it to be different. I wanted it to be different from the usual themes. I also didn't want a girly girly theme. And I wanted it to be something unique. Below is my vlog on the Party Theme.

I'm happy that most of the designs that I liked, The Party Studio was able to execute. I loved the color combination Pinky suggested to me when I told her I didn't want a pastel party. It just worked really well.

 Just look at this ceiling decor!

 Wishing tree tags, I chose popsicle and ice cream shapes.

 Table Centerpiece

I also loved the frames they lent to us. There was a framed photo of Robyn on each table. The Party Studio also provided the place mats which just made the whole look come together.

One of my most favorite is the straw design. The Party Studio provided paper straws for the guests and I asked them to put a little ice cream cone on it. I got the idea from Pinterest.

The backdrop was fantastic. I remember when they first showed a photo similar to this and asked if I wanted it. I definitely did. It was neat yet it showed an Ice Cream Parlor feel. I chose to change the roof color though to a more vibrant one. There were hanging ice cream cones too. And the lettering was part of the package. (No, we weren't able to take those home.)

Also saw this simple yet really cool idea for the kids' tables and just knew I had to have this too! Just place the napkin under the paper plates and make it look like an ice cream cone. 

I guess there were a couple issues along the way. There were a couple of things that they weren't able to add though. I wanted like a chalkboard with some information about Robyn. Pinky said she'll put it right at the entrance, but they weren't able to do that. Also, there was supposed to be a Celebrant Memorabilia and I actually brought some stuff of Robyn, but they weren't able to decorate and style it too. I guess because the venue was really packed and there wasn't much space for that anymore. And I wish the wishing tree was highlighted more. Because a lot of the guests didn't really see it and I think it would have been really great to have more wishes and notes for Robyn.

But even though there were some issues, they were so easy to talk to. I was even able to ask them to add some more centerpieces since we had a lot of guests and we had to add a couple more tables. They styled a lot of the tables without questions asked! :)

I have always chosen to work with people I'm comfortable with and Pinky and her husband Bonnie were very down to earth, easy to talk to and very friendly. Overall, I'm really really happy with their service. And I do recommend them to those who want the get a party stylist. I have no regrets and I know that they made the party even more fun and because of them it was even more successful! :D

YELLOWMUM: #oliviarobynturns1 Party Venue: Greenmeadows Clubhouse

Hey everyone! So today I start my series on Robyn's 1st Birthday Party. It's going to be a couple of blog posts because I will be sharing our experience with the suppliers as well. I don't want to collate it in just 1 post because it may be too long and too photo heavy.

Today I'm going to start with the venue. We have chosen Greenmeadows Clubhouse as our party venue. We decided to go with a clubhouse because with this, we will be able to decorate the place and we have the liberty to really make it our own. Also, it was more affordable than having it in a hotel. Plus we were able to choose our own caterer too.

The clubhouse was able to house more or less 250 guests. I was surprised a lot of our invited guests were able to go. I was thrilled to see that all of our tables were filled with loved ones.

Greenmeadows also has great staff. They even have a cleaning lady in the restroom. That's definitely a plus because it just means that the cleanliness of the venue's maintained.

They have ample parking as well. And did I mention that they have a playground right beside the clubhouse for the kids to use anytime during the party?

I also love the high and white ceiling. It just makes the drapes and decors pop!

Other than that, the place was very convenient to go to. It's in the heart of Quezon City near Ortigas. So a lot of our guests were able to find it easily.

The only downside is that you have to be endorsed by a resident of the village. If you don't know anyone, I don't think you'd be allowed to have any events in the clubhouse.

Overall, I give it a thumbs up and I'm happy we went with this venue. I couldn't imagine a different venue that will allow us to have this much fun! :)

Greenmeadows: 637-3311, 637-3399

FOTD: Keep It Bare

If you're a new mom, I'm sure you can relate to this. There are days Most days are "I just don't have time to put on eye makeup" days. Believe me, I get it. Having a good face makeup is sometimes more than enough especially when you're not really going anywhere fancy.

I find myself going for a super simple face makeup most of the time because I can honestly do it in the car, and that's usually where I do my makeup now. It takes me less than 10 minutes to do this. So if you're also in a hurry, skip the eye makeup and just focus on your beautiful face. :)

Products Used:
Krave Cosmetics HD Triplex Advanced Powder in French Latte
Avon Glimmerstick Brow Definer in Dark Brown
San San Concealer in Beige, 
Physicians Formula Bronze Booster
Benefit Coralista blush
BYS Lipstick in Dusty Rose

Secret Revealed! Asian Secrets Lulur Indonesian Whitening Facial Scrub

What a long title I know. Haha! But believe me, it really is a secret revealed! I personally don't exfoliate my face every week. That's just me, I'm lazy like that and somehow I always think of "old school" facial scrubs. I remember the beads were a little big that these may result to micro-tears.

But of course, we all want that glowing youthful skin. Glowing skin is a product of healthy living and a disciplined skin care regimen. There’s no better way to start your path to gorgeous skin than exercise, proper nutrition, constant hydration, applying sunscreen & moisturizing lotion and regular exfoliation.

Removing dead skin cells will not only give your skin a healthy glow, it also keeps skin clean, helps unclog pores to let skin breathe, reduce acne outbreaks as well as allow moisturizing products to penetrate better and be more effective.

Following the success of Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub is Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub, another breakthrough whitening scrub by Asian Secrets, now specially formulated for the face.

Asian Secrets Lulur scrubs are inspired by a most luxurious ritual used by Indonesian royalty called Lulur, originally intended for the bride-to-be to beautify, smoothen, and whiten her skin before her wedding day. Lulur originated from the royal palaces of Java, Indonesia and products inspired by this traditional treatment are still used by Indonesian women, and in specialty spas today.  
A tried and tested beauty secret, many users of Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Body Scrub have been clamoring for something that will give them the same effect on their face. Because the skin on the face is more sensitive and requires special attention, Asian Secrets has come up with a formulation that is more delicate and yet equally effective in whitening and smoothening facial skin.

Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub contains Bengkoang (Yam Bean in English or Singkamas in Filipino), a traditional Indonesian whitening ingredient. Bengkoang extract has natural whitening properties and can make skin look brighter and more radiant, plus contains vitamins C & E which are known as antioxidants that can fight harmful pollution from the environment to keep skin healthy.

Similar to the body scrub, it contains Lulur beads that gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells to smoothen and give skin a radiant glow. It moisturizes and leaves skin with a light fragrant scent. 

Don't worry you don't have to exfoliate everyday. In fact, exfoliating once or twice a week will help you achieve silky, smooth skin. If you have oily skin, exfoliate more than once a week. A whitening exfoliant allows its whitening properties to penetrate your skin,to further make your skin radiant, so you can look your best, whatever time of the day. 

Why use Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub?

Using Asian Secrets Lulur Whitening Facial Scrub just 2-3x a week lightens the skin, making it fairer and whiter.  Women of all ages, especially busy women who are juggling family and household responsibilities have little time to go to the spa for pampering and beauty indulgences.  Asian Secrets makes it easy and affordable to get that pampered glow right at home with Asian Secrets Lulur Facial Scrub.

  1. Lulur beads gently exfoliate and remove dead skin cells to smoothen and give it a radiant glow.
  2. It also moisturizes and leaves skin with a light fragrant scent.
  3. Frequent usage lightens the skin, making it fairer and whiter.
Here's how to use it:
  1. Put a small amount on your finger tips
  2. Apply on dry face and massage in a gentle circular motion avoiding the eye area
  3. Rinse with water
  4. Use every other day for maximum results

What I LIKE:
  • I personally love that it's so light.

  • The Lulur beads are so tiny and smooth that it doesn't hurt at all!

  • I also love the scent. It smells so refreshing and clean.
  • It's readily available. 
  • It's very affordable at Php70 for a 50g tube while a 100g  tube retails for Php120.
  • It comes in a squeeze tube so it's travel friendly.
  • Honestly there's none.

I have tried so many different facial scrubs and exfoliants, and currently this is at the top of my list. It makes my skin feel so smooth and it feels so moisturized. I have bumps on my nose, but this product definitely takes care of those. It's so gentle on the face that I don't feel any pricking. It even relaxed me when I exfoliate my skin. It feels like I'm in the spa, having a facial. Oh and did I mention I love the scent? I highly suggest you try this product yourself and see how it works for you. :)
