Pillow Talk: The Launch of Grace Home Pillows

Last week, on June 8, we had a very enlightening and entertaining afternoon where friends gathered for an afternoon talk discussing the power of blogging and the influence of social media in our lives.

Dubbed “Pillow Talk,” the event coincides with the launch of Grace Home‘s French Chic Throw Pillows at the posh Kirov Model Unit, Proscenium at the Rockwell Center.

Headlining our little discussion were some of my favorite people in the blogosphere: Janeena Chan, Martine de Luna, Cat Arambulo, and Michelle Aventajado.



It was an intimate affair and styled accordingly. Outside the venue, stylist extraordinaire Jo Claravall created a simple and elegant display to welcome our guests. Her beautiful setup integrated this lovely Grace Home product display.

All of a sudden, the starkly sophisticated unit was transformed into one with a more French chic, bohemian vibe.DSCF2191DSCF2193DSCF2195

Talk and more

It was an event where the only thing on our agenda was to talk. Literally!DSCF2716It was a free-flowing discussion about how being a blogger has changed our lives in more ways than one…DSCF2607And how social media, in general, has affected and influenced us all.DSCF2519 DSCF2569So happy to see familiar faces and friends at the event too!Collage Guest 3Collage Guest 2Guest Collage 1

Well, we did more than talk. We also ate all throughout!

Trish Panlilio of Nawwty’s Kitchen took charge of our menu. We had a delicious spread of spinach salad with warm bacon mustard dressing, deep fried baby squid with aioli, chicken on lemongrass stalks, saffron shrimp linguine. Then of course, our desserts were aplenty too!  We feasted on fruit salad frost, caramelized basil peaches, chocolate mud pie and French lemon tart! Fresh honey dalandan and watermelon mint juices were, of course, free flowing too!
