The boys of The Vamps just did a cover of Justin Bieber's "Sorry" and it is everything! The band, who just released their new record recently, dropped by BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge and did an awesome rendition of the song. We love this, you guys! (via MTV.com)
5 Seconds of Summer were freaking out for a bit when Calum Hood tweeted the words "One day I will leave and live a normal life" recently. Who can blame them when just this year, Zayn Malik left 1D to be a "normal 22-year-old." But the 5SOS cutie deleted the tweet later and cleared the air. Phew! Maybe he was just having a bad day.

A new TV preview for Shadowhunters, the TV series based on The Mortal Instruments book, is here. Raise your hands if you're excited just like the rest of us! Starring Kate McNamara and Dominic Sherwood, Shadowhunters premieres on January 12. (via JustJaredJr.com)
Bullying has been a widely-discussed topic but to this day, there are still lots of victims who are hesitant to speak up. Stars like Kylie Jenner aren't even spared from it. To help teens inspire each other, the youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan launched the campaign I Am More Than just this year, a platform for teens to talk about their stories and help each other. Kylie discussed the hashtag recently with Ellen DeGeneres and we can't help but admire what she's doing. Take part in her campaign, Candy Girls, by sharing your story on Instagram and using the hashtag #IAmMoreThan. (via JustJaredJr.com)
Kristen Stewart transformed into the legendary Coco Chanel in this preview for Karl Lagerfeld's short film Once and Forever. The short attempts to give us a tour of what happens during the making of the fashion icon's biopic, someone as powerful as Chanel. Once and Forever drops online this week. (via Nylon.com)

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
