In conceptualising the program, rigorous market research was done to better understand key concerns related to milk formula purchasing for mothers. The findings include milk product authenticity and expiry dates, reliability of sellers of such products and long delivery lead times.  

Through close consultation with milk company partners, Lazada developed a robust set of guidelines and protocols that led to the advent of LazMall’s Milk Guarantee Program. This program guarantees the highest standards are applied for milk handling, storage and delivery of milk products.  

Emma Chavarot, Chief Business Officer of Lazada Philippines, said, “Lazada is the first and only e-commerce platform in the country to offer 100 percent guaranteed fresh and authentic milk products for online purchase.

Fun Pregnancy Announcement Ideas



Many expecting couples have different timelines as far as when to announce the big surprise to their friends and family. Some couples take a chance and announce the pregnancy right away (and if something were to go wrong, they would have support but let's not go there). Others prefer to do it traditionally by waiting until the early part of the second trimester, and there are others who don't make the announcement until much later on in the pregnancy. There are even some couples who don't announce after the birth of the baby (however, these are the ones who don't live near their friends and families and don't see them often). 

Whichever group you fall into as far as making the big announcement about the pregnancy, you will want to get creative with telling those who you care about and love the big news! Now let's go over some really fun pregnancy announcements that will make the news being shared even extra exciting that can be shared on Instagram and Facebook:

1. Movie Poster Pregnancy Announcement

This is a cool idea. There will be a picture of the couple in bed. The expecting mom will have delicious food from every group in bed, while the expecting dad is holding the What To Expect When You Are Expecting book as well as some harry potter baby clothes that is if he is a big fan by his side. And on top of the picture will have their names as they are the 'stars' of the movie, and the movie will be called Pregnant: Based On A True Story. On the bottom of the picture or poster will be the month that the baby is due. Have you heard of this idea before? Isn't it cute?

2. Wine Bottle Pregnancy Announcement

This can be a picture of two wine glasses, one wine glass being filled, and the other wine glass being empty with a note on it saying "Do not refill until" the month that the baby is due. And several bottles of wine can be in the background. That is a clever announcement that likely has not been done before. 

3. Ice Ice Baby Pregnancy Announcement

This one is a picture of the expecting parents. The dad-to-be is holding 2 bags of ice, and the -mom-to-be is holding her abdomen. There are no words captioned in the picture instead of on the post, the question "Can you decipher the meaning of this picture?" It won't take long for people to figure out what is in the picture. Of course, it means what it is showing, ice, ice, and baby! Has this one been done before? It probably has but even so, it is a cute idea to steal. 

4. Drinking For Two

This one will be a picture of the expectant parents at a restaurant where the mom-to-be is eating a meal and the dad to be is drinking 2 glasses of beer. And the caption in the photo will be "Drinking for two" which means since the dad is the one who has 2 glasses of beer does not mean all of a sudden he has become a lush. People will figure out what the meaning of this post is all about quickly. 

5. Prego Sauce

This one can be a picture of the expectant parents at the dinner table where the mom-to-be has a plate full of spaghetti in front of her and a glass of ginger ale with the bottle. And the dad-to-be drinking wine and eating the spaghetti. And in front of both of them, there will be the Prego sauce bottle with a sign above it that says "We are". That is a clever way to make the big news known. 

6. A For Sale Sign Or Trade

This picture can be the parents-to-be sitting in lawn chairs with baskets full of items that they are selling that they no longer need since it is suitable for those who don't have kids. In the basket, there will be wine glasses, booze bottles, beach stuff, and anything else that is associated with either the single life or life without kids. And above that will be a sign that says "Items for sale or to be traded with a crib in addition to some cute baby onesies with sayings".  People will get the idea pretty fast!

7. An Eating For Three Picture

This one may not be overly creative but it is cute. This can be a picture of a sundae container with ice cream in it with some pickles on it. And the container literally will be saying "Eating for three" on it. That has been done before but if the idea is appealing to you, then you will want to use this one. It may not be overly original but it is very cute. 

And you can even come up with some really cool pregnancy announcements that involve pets or siblings if you are expecting for the second or third, or fourth and so on time. The beauty with technology as well is that it gives you an opportunity to be creative with your announcements or anything else you do online. 

Because back in the old days before the internet was even a thought, the creative ways to announce a pregnancy was quite limited. That isn't to say that expecting parents didn't find other ways to be creative with how they announced their pregnancies. Perhaps they went to gatherings and threw in some hints that they were expecting such as throwing in the phrase "in 6 months from now" (if they waited 3 months to announce the pregnancy) And they would do this over and over again until someone caught on. 

However, the sky is the limit with how creative you can get when it comes to finding the best pregnancy announcement idea to use and to share it with those who you love and care about. It makes the experience even more exciting since others can join in as well!

[PR] : The rise of e-cigarettes and RELX Technology - RELX Vape

September 23, 2019

Hiya, rookie momma and other readers!

Are you smoking, vaping, of just looking fo a way to break the habit? Let me help you with that. We've recently partnered with RELX Philippines for this Press Release and to promote the alternate way to smoking cigarettes. RELX is the leading e-cigarette brand and Asia!

I know I've recently reached out to my 16,000 Facebook group called - First Time Moms PH and I have discovered that a lot of moms within our community are wanting to switch from cigarette to e-cigarette but doesn't really know where to begin, so let me help you with that.


The use of electronic cigarettes has surged worldwide over the past decade, with the global market valued at US$10.3B in 2018 and expected to grow at a CAGR of 24.9% from 2019 to 2025 per multiple reports. Though there are several major players in the vaping industry, most of them owned by tobacco companies, one recent independent entrant, RELX Technology – pronounced “relax” – has stood out from the competition.

Origins: Female entrepreneurship and concern for family and friends

Founded by ex-Uber China Head Kate Wang in January 2018, RELX Technology’s products have experienced tremendous success with adult smokers globally, catapulting it to the position of the leading closed-system e-cigarette brand in Asia.
Motivated by her father’s lifelong struggle to quit cigarettes and the lack of suitable new generation products in the market, Wang took it upon herself to start a company that prioritizes innovation, safety, and product quality.

An independent e-cigarette brand that works ethically
With a mission to empower adult smokers through advanced technology and user-friendly design without sacrificing ethics, RELX Technology’s core business encompasses independent R&D, product design and development, and sales. From its inception, RELX Technology has conceptualized and put into effect its ‘Guardian Program’ - a company-wide initiative that stretches from product development to sales, ensuring that the company puts the necessary effort in preventing and discouraging the use of e-cigarettes by minors, whether this be through concerted efforts with retailers to step up on-site identification of purchasers, or launching facial-recognition vending machines in China that dispense products only to adults against their national ID cards.

Cutting-edge R&D that focuses on problems faced by adult smokers wishing to quit cigarettes
In an industry focused on top-line growth, RELX Technology has invested millions of dollars into building its own facilities and operates the first CNAS-certified lab owned by an independent vape brand. RELX Technology also holds more than 20 international patents on its groundbreaking innovations in e-cigarette technology, all geared towards improving safety, quality, and user experience that helps smokers quit cigarettes more efficiently. Its products such as the RELX Alpha and RELX i include a haptic feedback feature called SmartPace, which vibrates to let users know when they should stop vaping and put down their devices. RELX Tech’s latest product, a smart e-cigarette called RELX i, connects to the companion smartphone app that features in-depth usage statistics and a child lock that prevents unauthorised use.

RELX Technology brings its advanced e-cigarette products to Philippines
RELX is now available in the Philippines through its physical stores and online partners such as Lazada and Shoppee. The RELX starter kits are available in the variants of Classic Black, Rose Gold. Space Gray, Navy Blue, Red, and Turquoise 



and just recently they have released the Celestial series, which features the stunning variants of Sunset Glow, Solar Eclipse, and Mystic Aurora. 


RELX also has a wide range of pod flavors such as Mango, Lemon Tea, Blueberry, Grapefruit, Ludou Ice, Fresh Cucumber, Mint, Classic Tobacco, Banana, Green-tea, Peach Oolong, and Icy Slush. All RELX starter kits comes with 1 vape electronic cigarette, charger, and 1 pod priced at Php 1,599.00
