Last November 9th, I received an invitation via email from Summit Media to their annual Smart Parenting (SP) Meet & Greet. It is an event wherein this publishing company invites their loyal subscribers for an afternoon of fun, games and informative talks.
This SP Meet & Greet 2012 was organized so the team behind this top family magazine in the Philippines today could mingle with its target audience — parents, and gather their ideas on how to improve the Smart Parenting Magazine in the coming year through focus discussion groups.
This year’s SP Meet & Greet was held at the Crowne Plaza Galleria Hotel in Ortigas Center, Pasig City.
I am so blessed to be able take part in this activity since I am a Smart Parenting Magazine subscriber since I became a mom on July 2011. My favorite SP Magazine issue was when Lea Salonga was the cover, together with her daughter, Beverly Nicole in April.
This year’s SP Meet & Greet was hosted by the beautiful mom, Issa Litton. The plenary speakers were also fun and really informative.
Moms like me who are present were taught how to dress up according to our body types. Thanks to the Fashion Editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine (Philippines), none other than Ms. Donna Cuna Pita.
She gave some really good tips and 5-must-have pieces of clothing in a woman’s wardrobe.
- The Little Black Dress (LBD)
- Good Fitting Jeans (at least 2 pairs)
- Good Underwear
- All Purpose-Bag
- White Crisp Top
I really had a great afternoon attending the SP Meet & Greet 2012. Food was also superb as prepared by Crowne Plaza Hotel. There was also a fun game called “Name That Tune” and “Name That Artist” and our table (number 3) won! There were 20 songs that were played and we were instructed to guess the title for the 1st 20 songs and its artists for the next 20. It was really fun shouting our buzzer, “I LOVE SMART PARENTING!”
The SP Meet & Greet 2012 ended with raffle. They gave out gift packs from their generous sponsors like California Nails & Spa, Oryspa, Jergens, and Scholastic Books. Luck was on my side that afternoon that I got one of the 5 Oryspa goodies! 🙂
Thanks again Smart Parenting for inviting me together with my daughter for an afternoon of fun and information. I hope I get invited again next year and I will do my best to participate. It really feels good to know that you value our ideas as your loyal readers.
Thank you Ms. Mia Fausto, Editor-in-Chief for organizing this Meet & Greet and to Ms. Issa Litton for hosting the event really well.
