MFO Anniversary Blog Giveaway: Grandma's, BugBand & Vapor Soove

This giveaway is from my family to yours! I have put together 3 mini gift packs composed of 5 items each (to celebrate 5 years!) - 2 bottles Grandma's Secret Spot Remover, 2 BugBands, 1 Vapor Soove.  

Consider it a care package packed with plenty of thought for your family's welfare:

- Grandma's Secret Spot Remover is a biodegradable stain remover that will work on all your family's tough to remove stains. Perfect for stain magnets!

- BugBand, a DEET-free insect repellant that I just brought in, is perfect for the entire family (Dad can use it when he's out cycling/playing golf, Mommy can use it when she's out running, the kids can use it every time they are outdoors) and of course

- Vapor Soove (a camphor-free chest rub that is safe for babies 6 months old onwards) for the sniffles.

I swear, all these products work! I can't live without them, and I am sure, once you have tried these, you won't be able to think of life without these ESSENTIALS in your family's life! Seriously, I panic whenever I am about to run out of Grandma's. Berry does not play outdoors without BugBand wrapped around her ankle. Two days ago, Berry got a cold. She slept overnight with Vapor Soove rubbed on her back, chest and the soles of her feet, and she slept so well. The following day, tadaa! Cold was gone. Seriously. I credit it to lots of liquids, mommy's touch and Vapor Soove. (Oh and I use Vapor Soove too when I have the sniffles!)

I wish I can do an Oprah and give you all my readers a care pack each, but right now, we can only have 3 winners. If you've always wanted to try these products, or you just need to replenish your stocks, here's your chance!

Not yet and I am so looking forward to try all three products.

During Saturdays, we just stay at home and hang out. Sundays are always family day and we start it off with an early morning mass and head off to a nearby mall to do some family bonding.

Drink lots and lots of fluids, take vitamin c, rub some vapor rub (another brand) and rest, rest, rest.

I usually shop online for my kid's clothes and the local mall for his other essentials if they are available locally but if not, the internet always saves the day. =)

What does your family do on weekends? Do you spend it outdoors? Indoor?
I've been married for about a year and a half now. My husband and I have been living separately from our parents since day 1 so our weekends with our families count so much. Our Saturdays and Sundays are, unlike other families, spent at work as we run a chain of restaurants in Tondo, but this does not hinder us from getting together with the families. Sunday morning after chuch my husband and I go see his family in Sampaloc for breakfast. A quick trip to the market where his grandma sells fish and other seafood for tuyo, galunggong, or daing, salted eggs and tomatoes for the ensalada, or fresh eggs for scrambling. We then head off to work in Tondo for the lunch hour rush while my mother in Quezon City prepares for our Late Sunday Lunch that happens at about 2pm when we get there. After lunch, me and the hubby spend quality time together, either catching the latest flick at the mall, invading sales and bazaars in Makati, Eastwood, the World Trade Center, or just going back to our home in Tondo, watching DVDs in our pajamas over popcorn and fizzy drinks.

What do you do when you or someone in your family has colds?
WATER, WATER, WATER!! It's the best medicine for the colds. I used to be a pill-popper; any pain at all and I would be grabbing my handy medicine box for painkillers, cough syrup, antihistamines, and other medication drugs with names that are hard to pronounce. But since I became pregnant, it's just good old water for me, and guess what, the water does work for the colds. Does wonders for the skin too, gives me that healthy glow, :)

Where do you shop for baby/children's items?
As I am about to become a first time mom in October, I have done lots of shopping for baby stuff. For high-end buys that need warranty coverage like my electric bottle sterilizer, I went to the nearest mall. I don't go to out-of-way malls for these kinds of stuff so if ever there are defects, i would just have to make a short trip to have it repaired or replaced. For quality bottles, it's the nearest mall too. I know that the bottles will only be used during times that i would not be able to breastfeed my baby, but i don't want to risk getting just any bottle, it's got to be BPA free for my daughter. For the newborn baby clothes and accessories like towels, blankets, mosquito nets and cloth diapers, i scoured the streets of Divisoria and the stalls of 168. Some do not do their shopping there, as they say it's substandard. But with just the right amount of patience, one could find good buys, even items that are equal to the quality of the items they have in your local malls or your favorite online seller, at lower prices to boot.
