Manila Shopaholic + BDJ Power Planner Giveaway @bdjbuzz #ManilaShopaholicXBDJGiveaway

Yeah, well you’d think maybe it’s waaay too late to plan already for the rest of the year but NO, it’s not. It’s never too late to plan. And all you have to do is to start NOW. With that, Manila Shopaholic x BDJ is encouraging you to start planning right now. For the rest of year. It’s actually pretty timely because once June sets in, it’s actually mid-year already! ACK! Time flows by soo fast.

Looking back at the year that passed, I will just give you a quick preview of the things that happened to me.


–         Change the way how my site looks. Was supposed to update it more regularly but got caught up and entangled in work and the business. But it’s all good!

Manila Shopaholic Site Revamp


–         Tried to learn something and gave water coloring a shot. Still not good but hey, well, what do you know. At least I tried something new.

Life After Breakfast Crafternoon

–         Got really involved in party decorating for my niece’s first birthday party and that really opened up my eyes to crafting! I love paper crafts.

–         Won a contest and got PHP 5,000 shopping spree from Common Thread. Well, I’m one lucky girl!

–         Launched Memory Crafters. Although, yes, there is still a lot of work for that but thank God for that and for my courage to actually try to start that.


–         Fell in love with crafting and got to meet the owner of Caboodle Box.

And still more crafting

–         Fell in love with Argan Oil, too.

Actually, I think there’s still a lot more that happened to me during the first part of the year but then that just might bore you to death! So my point, plan. Keep track of new experiences and memories. It’s fun looking back at them and for sure, better to look forward to new ones. I believe that the BDJ Power Planner will truly help you with this!

And because I want to help you guys out to jumpstart the next part of the year, I’m giving away 5 BDJ Power Planner. 3 via my blogand 2 via Instagram. I will give out one BDJ Power Planner per week. So this giveaway will run for a span of 3 weeks. 1 BDJ Power Planner per week for the Blog and 1 BDJ Power Planner per week via Instagram. Just follow Rafflecopter to join the giveaway!

P.S. By the way, in case you don’t win this first round, there will be a second and a third round! 😉

Welcome Back, Kinney

As you all know, I have been the substitute writer of Manila Shopaholic for the past three months. My sister, Kinney, was sent on a business trip to France. And now… she’s back!

Welcome back, Kinney!

Check out her pics when she was in France! (Sorry, I posted it without asking her permission! Lol!)

Loved following your pictures, sister! I can’t wait to hear and read about your experiences, especially your shopping experiences in France, Italy, Spain and Greece. I’m sure, a lot of your readers, are excited as well!

As for Manila Shopaholic’s readers, it has been fun sharing my experiences and these three months with you. Thank you for those who supported us during the Pond’s Unbeaten Whitening Experience. Don’t worry! I will still be contributing articles for this website 😉

Again, welcome back, Kinney dear, and I missed you, sis! 🙂

Manila Shopaholic in France

Yes, I know that I have been on hiatus lately but that’s because of 2 things. First of all, I have been terribly busy with something new at work. Secondly, I have been trying to settle in my new “home” for the next 3 months here in France. Yes, France – the land of shopping and all things beautiful. BUT, mind you, I don’t think I’d really be able to shop around here because of the exchange. The exchange rate of a whopping 1 euro is to PHP60 (approximately).

It’s actually kind of hard to compute this particular exchange rate. After being so used to multiplying dollars to pesos, you kind of try to get used to using your calculator and multiplying the amount by 60. Habits are truly hard to erase.

After a grueling 14 hour flight to Amsterdam and an hour flight to Strasbourg, shopping and trips were the last thing on my mind. When I first found out that I was leaving, I was searching the internet about where to go and what to shop for. Where to buy things and what are the nice malls. This is somewhat a ritual that I used to do whenever I would have trips. But this time, the nearer I was to the date of my departure, the harder it was for me to plan anything. It was like everything was out of my control.

Tally for Week 3 of the Manila Shopaholic Nokia: My Life Promo

Hi Everyone! Here now, I am presenting to you guys my tally for Week 3. And just to share with you a bit of a background why the color is salmon.. Well, I have this weird thing of watching “Umagang Kay Ganda” every morning during breakfast and waiting for the portion – “Zodiac by Zen”. Hehe. I have always been interested in those stuff and not really believed it but then again, it keeps things pretty interesting.

Anyway, going back… I picked out the color Salmon because the lucky color for today is Peach or Peach Pink and to me Salmon is just that. So in line with wishing you guys good luck, I have colored the table Salmon. Good luck everyone! And THANK YOU once again! I know that for the past weeks, I haven’t really been actively blogging but I will make it up to you guys.
