I was one of the lucky moms who were invited by Amanda Griffin-Jacob to an intimate lunch to get to know her new lifestyle show Amanda Loving Life.
Amanda and I have actually met last year. That is when I took up a nutrition cooking class that offered healthy food for babies & toddlers. She along with her friends organized it, it was really helpful and I learned a lot from it.
So when I received an invite from her, I was more than happy to say yes! Anyway, here’s a little something about her show Amanda, Loving Life.
Amanda, Loving LIfe (ALL) is a lifestyle show that caters to the many facets of a woman. It’s refreshing to talk to a celebrity such as Amanda who, like you and me also face the challenges of motherhood, homemaking, and everything else in between. I can honestly say that I feel her and can totally relate to her in more ways than one. It’s not everyday you get to talk to someone who is as busy as Amanda and I’m glad I was able to ask her questions about situations and ideas that concerned me. She genuinely answered them all with no apprehensions. It was evident that what she is on television is who she is in real life- pretty, nice, bubbly, real, classy and can carry herself really well.
In between sharing and chatting with Amanda & the other mommy bloggers, lunch was served. Aria prepared a yummy feast for all of us, can I just say it made me miss Boracay even more?!

Dessert time, my favorite part! Aria Tris di Dolci: Panna Cotta, Crema Catalana and Tiramisu.
We both worked in front of the camera. We both have toddlers aged 2. Now, we’re both expecting our second child. Cool! 🙂
With Amanda and Martine of Dainty Mom. Thank you ladies for inviting me, such a pleasure exchanging thoughts & ideas to you and to the other moms!
