In good company: Hosting Baby Company's star-studded store inauguration (Part 1)

Really can't get enough of this awesome experience. For this post, I will share a few awesome videos not just of myself hosting this delightful event, but also getting to interview the beautiful celebrity moms that we had that day... First are these two homes video where I strived to open this shiny, shimmering, splendid show with a 'Baby' Bang!  
Where do I even begin writing about with this brilliant, all-star mom affair by Baby Company, the Baby Specialist? Well perhaps, I should once again thank the beautiful Ms. Cheryl Justiniano, AVP Marketing of Baby Company who I met years back and it's been a memorable journey since, starting with their annual Baby Company Grand Baby Fairs which I am so proud to be part for how many years now, I can't even count anymore! I still wonder how she got my details, but hey you don't have to worry about things like those. And a big thank you too to the rest of the amazing Baby Company ladies who are truly beautiful inside out: Ms. Kyla of Marketing, Ms. Maby of Merchandising, who is sooo funny and sweet and Ms. Lani Del Castillo SAVP Merchandising. But we cannot forget their lovely and kind-hearted big boss SVP-Operations, Ms. Theresa Ponce! Again thank you for your trust and I pray to work with you for the years to come.
I can still feel the buzz of this day... I left right away that day for my son had a bit of a fever (thus the reason why I wasn't able to bring him along when he usually likes to join me for mall events and play Pokemon Go) so even if I was slightly stressed that day, seeing people who were beautiful inside and out - mothers too - from bloggers to celebrity mums, was such a nice breath of fresh air!
The event was graced by celebrities turned supermoms from actresses Iya Villania, who cut the ribbon along with the Baby Company VIPs, Nadine Samonte, Tanya Garcia and also supermodels such as Kelly Misa, Nicole Hernandez and my favorite, Patty Laurel simply because I always meet her in mom events (most recently at Smart Parenting's Baby Shower where she was one of our resource speakers) and she never fails to brighten up my day with her friendly, down-to-earth vibe, and her sincere words of light and affirmation. 
Beaming as Iya shares some of her most intimate preggy adventures... 
And let's not forget this beautiful mom-of-five, Ms. Joy Woolbright Sotto, who instantly told me, "Mary I remember you," about the time we were both grocery shopping and I gushed at her delightful little boy, Sandro, her third child who is just a ball of energy. I also told her his superb dancing skills and eating videos were one of the reasons I follow them on Instagram. I congratulated her for finally having her much prayed for princess, her only daughter. She just recently gave birth and for the event only had her brood of 4 good-looking young men in tow who I also got to interview... 
And now, more of the pretty mommy of baby Theo, Patty Laurel Filart who indulges me as I check out her Baby Company shopping cart... check out these two videos where she shares her baby must-haves. See how she loves shopping only at Baby Company! 
And the crown of this post goes to the beautiful Shamcey Supsup Lee, Binibining Pilipinas Universe, who I got to do the Baby Company Runway Walk! From winning international pageants, she is a winner in my book, having gamely showed us all that we too can be beauty queens, in the aisles of Baby Company, at least! I really admire Shamcey not just for being a beauty queen but also because of her astounding academic achievements: graduating Magna Cum Laude from U.P. Diliman and also being a board topnotcher in the licensure exams for architects. Now, apart from being a TV personality and architect, she is a restauranteur too. More than a beauty queen supermodel, she is a role model for all girls and mommies out there!
Thank you for this honor, Baby Company! To all my friends and visitors, please feel the glee when you visit any Baby Company stores, especially their biggest one to date in SM Megamall, which is already their 62nd store... Congratulations to the Baby Specialist! 
Thanks for visiting my blog and to all the moms and moms-to-be, make sure you also visit Baby Company's SM Megamall store; I would say it's the largest and most vibrant store I've been to so far! And of course, stay happy; keep sweetly smiling and brightly shining!
