More Bravado Love

Back to breastfeeding and i am making the most of it!!

Here with my fellow Boncho buddies at Pax's christening-- yummymummies with babies of all ages still nursing and proud of it!! 

what a treat and encouragement to all be together! 


Bravado ROCKS, we all know..Hollywood celebrity yummymumies love it!


And so do i. :P 

Was already using the Maternity Bikinis when I was preggy and was soo happy with the product! Read about it here

As soon as I was back to making my magic milk, I started off with the Essential Tank Top my fellow yummymummy soul sister sent me. It came in three neutral colors perfect to match with my Indigobaby Boncho. 

The tanks have the Original Nursing Bra built into it, making it perfect for every day use- home or out!


I also treated myself to the buttery soft Body Silk Seamless Bra with nice stretchy fabric! I love this bra because it can fit a range of bra sizes, perfect for every nursing yummymummy! The way it fits and forms is quite lovely really.  Definitely a must-have! 


 And last but definitely not the last is my Lifestyle Microfiber Bra that feels just like a normal bra perfect for getting back into the groove and daily grind! 


Enjoying these bras and they are definitely going to be my mainstays for a while since I plan to nurse until Pax is in college...hahaha..ok, maybe preschool:P

FLOW Negros: Luxe Yoga Weekend Escape

Missed this retreat (booo!!) coz i just gave birth, but here's a recap from our FLOW yogi superstar Monica:



It's been over a week since we ended the last FLOW retreat and I have only fond memories of the experience, the people and the place! 
Punta Bulata Resort and Spa definitely exceeded our expectations.

I am so pleased with how Tom Zayco (manager and owner) helped us execute our retreat. He was up for yoga before breakfast, came to every single workshop, tour or activity and even socialized with the participants way past bedtime!

Thanks to Mae and Frank of When In Manila for some of the photos I used in this blog. Here's a photo recap on what went on during the retreat:

As soon as we arrived Punta Bulata, we were treated to Lemongrass juice or Tarragon Tea (my personal fave since I tried it many many years ago in Sonya's Garden, Tagaytay!) I was told that the herbs are freshly picked from their herb garden.

 We marveled at our wonderful home for the weekend. Presenting the Punta Bulata Ayu Spa rooms!


Lisa, Camille and Claudia with their Peace Love Yoga eco totebags with goods from our sponsors!


Shiny happy people at the Green Smoothie and Live Food workshop sponsored by MoringanaBreville and Superfood Grocer :) We learned how to make simple green smoothies and nutritious raw vegan snacks in a jiffy!


Superfood shot anyone? Our Watermelon cooler infused with Moringana was so refreshing!

Noelle and I surrounded with fresh fruits and veggies for the workshop!


Vinyasa and Yin Yoga in the native hut facing the sea with the salty breeze flowing and cleansing our lungs.


Being flexible enough to make do with the situation -getting stuck during the downpour of rain in Typhoon Beach! The FLOW-ers were game enough to do a yoga photo shoot for their Instagram accounts :)



 Gourmet meals awaited our taste buds at the buffet table. For the veg-heads, there were many vegetarian options during meal times. My favorite was our Japanese dinner and the Kebab lunch. 


Coconut juice abundance! Since we were surrounded by coconut trees, we have fresh supplies of the sweetest coconut juice. YUUUUM.


Massage in Paradise. Guests had the option to have their hour and a half long complimentary massage at the 3rd floor of the Ayu Spa or in the privacy of their own rooms. Heavenly!



On our final day, everyone got home with a prize from our sponsors. A premium item, the Lagu beach blanket was given away to the last person standing during the yoga showdown -- congratulations again to Nancio Gaston for performing his finale pose - Bakasana to Chaturanga! And thanks to Claudia for being such a sport, too!


After a whole weekend with the #FlowNegros crew, my concluding thought is- it'll be hard to top this one! For more information on what went down during the weekend, read Antoinette Lacson's blog here and Claudia's German blog (don't worry, use Google translate!) here. More photos from the retreat at the official FLOW facebook fanpage here.

Thank you to all those that joined and our generous sponsors: Moringana, Cutieverse, The Superfood Grocer, Belo Essentials Sun Expert, Lagu, Strip, Browhaus, Beyond Yoga, Breville, Rawlicious, The Juice Barista and our media partners Travel Magazine and When In Manila.
