Fun Friday: Our Stars Aligned on Mom's Day

Third Friday of the month: Event / Celebration / Recreation

May is special for me mainly because we celebrate motherhood this month and it's also my blog's anniversary every Mother's Day. For my blog, I really don't plan anything special but simply thank my readers and friends for the continuous support. As for Mother's Day, we usually dine out for lunch and treat the grandmothers as well. But what I love most are all the gifts and pampering I receive as mom's day weekend approaches, heehee! =)

Bonding and shopping at Hunt & Gather Festival

Mother's Day weekend:
I love all the gifts that came from flowers to chocolates, accessories and even matching Lock & Lock Horoscope Tumblers for me and my girl. More on that towards the end of this story.

Saturday -- my family had a simple lunch at a pizza place. Afterwards, the boys went home and my girl and I went to the first Hunt & Gather Nutrition and Fitness Festival in Glorietta, celebrating "Strong Moms". We snacked on vegan ice cream, coconut juice and bought myself a new pair of grip socks for my pilates class. Our spanking new tumblers came with us too.

Having her with me at the event was really fun as we bonded over yummy food and shopping. I told her na Mother's Day gift na nya sa akin yon, being with me that day. I always tell her that I like shopping with her and that she's my foodie buddy whenever we go out and travel since we both enjoy eating and appreciate good food. She agrees! =) 

Aside from being foodies, I also like that we get to dress up in similar looks from time to time, or what millennials would call "twinning". Here's one example, where she observed that we have matching looks and our colors are in reverse daw.

Sunday -- Mother's Day, we had lunch with the grannies and as expected, we both enjoyed our orders, especially the decadent and sinful molten chocolate cake that we shared. Watch these short video clips and see what I'm talking about. =)

Sumptuous Sunday lunch with family.

Sharing dessert of molten chocolate cake!

Now, going back to my Mother's Day gifts... best surprise I got was a pair of Lock & Lock stainless steel tumblers for me and M!!! Woo-hoo! Naturally, we brought them with us to the festival at the mall.

SRP : Php 1,149.75

You know what's fascinating? M has been curious about astrology and horoscopes for the past few months. She's been asking me about our signs, the meaning and the symbols behind each one. Lo and behold, Lock & Lock, one of our trusted and favorite house ware brands, sent us their Horoscope Tumblers based on our astrological signs! What a coincidence and a wonderful surprise! I tell you, the stars have aligned for us on Mother's Day. =)

Here's M, resting by the stage with our handsome royal blue horoscope tumblers at the event, of course her LPS toys came with us too. 

Capricorn for this January celebrant, and Pisces for me.

What we love about Lock&Lock Tumblers
  • Ideal to keep hot or cold drinks -- 400ml
  • Tumblers are vacuum insulated and keep drinks hot or cold for at least 6 hours
    • From the time we left the house for the festival until that evening, my leftover water was still cold after 8 hours
    • M did not drink too much and forgot about her tumbler until the next day -- 24 hours and her water remained cold!
  • Slim stainless steel body with polished royal blue metallic color and constellation design
  • Secure plastic lid with seal, removable mouth ring and rubber gasket
    • Mouth ring design controls flow of water while drinking, prevents spills even in a moving vehicle
  • Non-slip rubber base

I stopped buying plastic bottles for years now and switched to glass or stainless, so these Lock & Lock stainless steel tumblers are prefect for us. Basta kasya sa bag ko, we always bring water bottles whenever we go out.

Thank you, Lock & Lock for this super cool mom's day gift! Matching clothes and now may matching tumblers na with M! I have to thank my lucky stars too! =)
