Good Housekeeping Philippines, the leading family and home magazine in the country, in partnership with SmartParenting.com.ph and Yummy magazine, recently held the newest gathering of Modern Urban Moms (MUMS) on May 28, Saturday, from 1:00 to 6:00 PM, at the SM Mall of Asia Main Mall, Atrium.
“May is a special month for Good Housekeeping, not only because Mother’s Day falls on this month, but also because it’s the magazine’s anniversary. This year, we turned 18!” said Tisha Alvarez, Editor in-Chief of Good Housekeeping. “We would like to thank all our loyal readers for being with us all this time and for making Good Housekeeping stronger every year. Holding events like MUMS of Manila is our way of reaching out to our readers and giving back to them for their support.”
I was grateful to have a plus one and so I invited my friend Eve of QarahMoments.blogspot.com to accompany me. After registration, they handed us a passport of all the booths that we can visit.
Let me show you some of the booths.

MUMS of Manila was a whole-day event where moms could SHOP, LEARN and ENJOY. Moms who attended were able to SHOP from 30 concessionaires offering the latest products covering beauty and wellness, food, kids, and home, among others; LEARN from a series of talks from Good Housekeeping editors and experts; and ENJOY games, raffles, prizes, entertainment, and booth activities.
For hardworking moms who don’t want to compromise style and beauty, Elaine Natividad, Beauty and Features Editor of Good Housekeeping, shared “10 Ways to Style Your Scarf,”
Ara Fernando, Lancome PH Ambassador for Make-up, conducted a “Basic Brow Masterclass.”
For moms who face the perpetual problem of clutter, Editor-in-Chief Tisha talked about organizing homes with “Say Goodbye to Kalat.”
Simple physical exercises at home were presented by Managing Editor Angela Constantino Aquino in “Health Hacks,”
