Last Sunday afternoon, I attended the Good Housekeeping and 3M Command Brand Philippines’ Get Hooked on DIY event at the SM Megamall. The booths were already open by 10a.m., but the program proper started at 3 in the afternoon. There were several booths within the area which showed the 3M Command products and samples of how you can use them within your house. Some items were also for sale.

The 3M Command Brand focuses on hooks and hangers which are said to stick on most smooth surfaces inside your home. You may use them to hang belts, photo frames, etc. without the need for drilling holes or hammering nails into your walls. Different 3M Command Brand products cater to different surfaces, purposes and weights; make sure to check their FAQ if you have any questions.
The program was hosted by Ms. Angel Jacob.
Introductions and information about the brands were given by the 3M Manager and Good Housekeeping’s Editor in Chief, Tisha Alvarez-Angluben.
Ms. Connie Tejada, also a blogger, was the one who conducted the actual DIY workshop. She suggested several ways of using 3M Command Brand‘s products, from your usual home organizing to games and party decor ideas.
A special guest appearance was also made by Team Kramer (Doug, Cheska and their eldest daughter, Kendra). They are the newest brand ambassadors for 3M Command and they talked not just about the brand itself, but about their family too. Team Kramer is very famous in Manila because they let their fans into their personal lives by posting regularly on social media platforms, such as Facebook and Instagram.
During the event, there were several prizes which were given away for those whose names were picked. I was honestly very happy when my name was picked when free copies of Good Housekeeping’s cookbook were being given out. I rarely win in raffles or contests, so this was already a big thing for me. 🙂 Other prizes which were given away included 3-months free subscription to Good Housekeeping magazine and several 3M products. A lot of prizes were given away that afternoon and I’m sure a lot of people were really happy with their winnings.
By the way, just in case you’re wondering, I was invited to the event by my good friend and fellow blogger, Louisa. Since I wasn’t “officially” covering the event for the brands, I registered as a guest and was eligible to join the raffle draw. 🙂
I’m so glad I decided to attend the event as it was such a fun afternoon. I’m a big fan of 3M’s Post-it product line and know how handy they are in both my personal and work life. I also know that my parents use their automotive tint and items from their Scotch-Brite line, all with positive feedback. It’s true that 3M products aren’t the cheapest in the market, but most (if not all) of them are really good. If they work better than the cheaper ones, then I guess they’re worth the money!
