MyMy Blog Celebrates Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is just around the corner… I can almost hear it fast approaching… in stilettos (LOL)!   Since I wasn’t able to give you our Freebie Friday for March, I decided to make this month’s freebie extra special, not just to make up for the missed month, but because it’s Mother’s Day!

So here’s what MyMy Blog (with the generosity and kindness of our participating sponsor friends) have come up with in honor of four lucky Moms out there.

Mothers Day on MyMy Blog 5 MyMy Blog Celebrates Mothers Day

 Freebie A (one winner)

Why would you want to snag this Freebie?  I personally have met and worked with Cathy Cantada-Dizon (the “Cat” in the “Belle & Cat“) about five years ago.  She did my hair and makeup for a fashion shoot.  For that reason alone, it would be an understatement to say that when it comes to beauty, Cathy is a guru.  So when she opened her own nail and wax studio (which also offers other services beyond just waxing and nail pampering), I thought her success and reputation in the field of makeup artistry earned her a very strong credibility in her chosen niche.  One of Belle & Cat Nail and Wax Studio‘s most in-demand services, I believe, is its modern take on the French Tip Manicure.  A service that’s definitely must-try!


Freebie B (one winner)

Divine Desserts Mothers Day Gift MyMy Blog Celebrates Mothers Day

 Why would you want to snag this Freebie?  One word says it all when it comes to cakes by Divine DessertsHEAVENLY.  So why would you even not want it? … Exactly.

Freebie C (one winner)

La Derma Promo MyMy Blog Celebrates Mothers Day

Why would you want to snag this Freebie?  Diamond peel or microdermabrasion is a process where the topmost layer of the skin is stripped to encourage renewal and new skin growth. This is also a resurfacing procedure that stimulates the production of collagen which makes your skin look firmer and more refreshed.  To have perfect, star-white skin after a diamond peel, a simultaneous vitamin C infusion, deep cleansing and whitening facials is given to thoroughly cleanse pores and further promote skin renewal to reveal younger-looking and fairer skin.  The whole session lasts around 45 minutes (15 minutes for preparation (cleansing, steam), 15 minutes for the diamond peel, and 15 minutes facial then mask).


Freebie D (one winner)

MyMy Blog gift voucher MyMy Blog Celebrates Mothers Day

 Why would you want to snag this Freebie?  If you’ve been following MyMy Blog since last year, you know how “kikay” (vain; fussy when it comes to girly stuff) I can certainly be.  You’ve seen me write/talk about a wide variety of girly stuff, from cosmetics to fragrances, books to food, shoes to knick knacks for the house, from recreational to fitness activities.  So this gift pack will be a collection of whatever I believe our lucky Mommy would need, want and love! icon wink MyMy Blog Celebrates Mothers Day
