This is a one-of-a-kind buffet experience that you shouldn't dare miss.
'Cause surely you & I will be in a shopper's paradise bliss.

I must say whoever thought of this concept is a genius!
I've just had it with eat-all-you cans & ride-all-you cans.
But shop & grab-all-you cans?
This is definitely more exciting & rewarding than a date with any man.

Yes, CLOTHES BUFFET is as easy as 1-2-3.

So girls, make sure you sign up and book yourself a slot fast.

As shopping waves, just like P1SO fare seat availability run out fast.

The October 17 & 18 shopping wave will be held in the Ariato Penthouse,
Il Terrazzo, 305 Tomas Morato Cor. Sct. Madrinan, Quezon City
So what are my SOPHIEsticated tips for all the avid shoppers out there?
1. Go early, at least 30 minutes before your scheduled time slot!
You wouldn't want to miss even a second's worth on your precious 15-minutes right?
2. Know your style, size & SOPHIEstication!
The Buffet Floor houses 3 collections - Smart Chic, Girl's Night Out & Festival Madness.

I must warn you though my fellow shopaholics.
You might find yourself spell-bounded & mesmerized!
Who wouldn't be with this kind of walk-in closet?!
And you've just got 1 bag to fill in 15 minutes, with the 30,000 clothes you see.

So when you feel you've got nothing to wear already in your closet,
Which I know every fashionista & stylista understands,
Clothes Buffet Manila is just the buffet place you & I are looking for.
What are you waiting for?

I'm portrayed to be tall, thin & pink.
I have small, circular ears, yellow eyeballs, and a long tail.
Oh yes, you know who I am now.
I'm the famous PINK PANTHER!
Necklace | YHANSY (from Shangri-la Mall)
I stole no diamonds nor jewels,
But I surely stole a lot of captivating glares.
Oh yes, I'm loving my plains & prints Pink Panther look,
'Cause trust me, pops of neon can easily get anyone hooked!
Shades | FLY
To blend in more with my environment,
I decided to sport a simple casual yet dressy look.
So if you want to stand out, make sure you pair your plains w/ eye-catching prints,
As this is one combo that's surely a guaranteed win!

Most girls like pink.
Baby pink, hot pink or neon pink,
Whichever shade one picks,
You're surely in for a fashionable kick!
I just love my pencil skirt from Honey Buttons!
Vertical stripes just makes anyone look taller & slimmer.
So fashionistas, if you love them too,
Just visit Greenhills, Tiendesitas & Cash & Carry too.
Casual wears doesn't mean you have the excuse to look dull & boring.
In fact, it's days like this that you get the chance to mix 'n match.
Just dare to have fun and play with fashion,
As it's really you & me that adds color to this world! 
Pink just exudes femininity, sophistication and elegance, all in one.
When matched with the right accessories,
One's look can intrigue, entice and invite for that second look.
So what do you think of my Pink Panther inspired look?
In hot days like this,
Do make sure that you wear a wide brim hat & glam shades.
These two accessories never fail to ooze the hotness in me.
Just kidding! But seriously, these 2 are fashionista must-haves!

Life, like it or not, brings so much ironies.
Sometimes we're up, sometimes we're down.
Sometimes undeniably strong, sometimes just vulnerable.
With a blink of an eye, life can already shift 360 degrees.

But just as the sun and the moon signals every passing day,
So does life surprise us in every possible way.
Yes, things may happen in the moment we least expect it,
But it is in these moments that we learn to stand & get on our feet.

As black is to white, 
Happiness is to sadness,
Life is to death,
Yin & Yang too move in pairs.

Yes, life gives us a lot of love-hate relationships,
But believe it or not, opposites spice up every relationship.
We find joy in the absence and presence of someone,
Just like we find pain in something that's been lost then found.

Shades | Calvin Klein
Bag | SO FAB

YinYang exists in everything,
As there's always something complementary in the other.
As the saying goes: "No Man is an Island."
It certainly takes two interacting forces to strike a balance.

There will be days where you will experience the Yin,
Where life seems pretty tough, negative, dark & passive,
But there will certainly be Yan days too,
Where days would seem light, positive, bright and active.

Life shows us the duality of things.
It's more than just "It takes two to tango!"
Life is a give & take relationship,
There'll be that inner voice in us saying, "Now, take the leap!"

Life is a bumpy road,
A roller-coaster ride.
Just remember that no matter how high the tide,
It is the journey, not the destination that matters in every ride.

Cadbury Sweet Endings

It's Love at Every Bite!

Nothing could beat the summer-winter heat,
Except for something insanely sweet!
Yes! Heaven is no longer an unreachable dream,
With a daily dose of Cadbury with my Sweet Endings Team.

Cadbury knows that each and every one of us needs a break.
So when Cadbury offered me a trio date, 
I knew there and's just a privilege I had to take!
So for those who missed it, this is for your sake.

My date with all Cadbury Barkadas was held at Shangri-la Mall.
From the (3) FREE Guardians of the Galaxy Tickets with Popcorn & Drinks,
To the Pick-a-Prize Booth with a chance to win an Ipad Mini,
My Cadbury experience definitely became a sweet ending!

Upon entering theater 2, 
Who could ever resist singing along with Cadbury's Jingle?
BUT word of caution, this is gonna be your Last Song Syndrome!
With this video running 30x on repeat, you & me are having LSS!

♫ Baby, baby, baby, baby, heaven sent you,
Maybe, Maybe, Maybe, we were meant to,
Be together, be forever, two little hearts go boom." 
No one left empty-handed,
'Cause there's surely a box of ultimate sweetness for everyone.
Thank you Cadbury & Nuffnang for this night,
It was definitely a Sweet Ending done right!

Taken from Nuffnang Facebook Page

A gift from my love with a love letter:
"Nothing like a box of chocolates to share with your Cadbury Barkada 
as a sweet ending for July. Thanks for coming. Enjoy!"
‘Shake, Rattle & Roll.’
‘Twist, Lick & Dunk.’
Styles of the past,
Which surely wouldn’t last!

Rip. Bite. MM-Melt. Enjoy.
My, my, this is definitely yummier than any other boy.
Oh, I just love my Cadbury...
With him, no heartaches, no heartbreaks, no worries.
My 4-Step Cadbury Ritual
Just RIP the exquisite royal purple and gold packaging.
Take a BITE into that tempting little thing.
Savor the MMM-Melt-in-my-mouth-moment.
And finally just ENJOY by repeating the ritual that's heaven-sent!

Marry me Cadbury,
Oh, you're my dairy milk,
You're my fruit & nut, roast almond & hazel nut.
All I'm just saying is I can’t imagine life without you!

You bet nothing else could make my day,
Except for something insanely sweet.
Oh! It’s not boys that make me fall in love day by day,
But chocolates that melt in my mouth every day.

A taste of heaven in every Cadbury bite,
You certainly won’t mind saying “whoops!”
To calories that pile up in loops,
Oh my, it’s just so damn good!

Just like falling for the charms of Fifty Shades of Grey's Christian Grey,
Who wouldn’t be obsessed with the luscious Cadbury day by day?  
Just a sight…just a taste…just the aroma...would make you lust,
Screaming, ‘Oooooh, Mmmmm, mmmorrre Cadbury, always a must!’

Oh Cadbury, your taste alone is my Sweet Ending!
