5 Things You Missed Today (January 3)
It seemed like Nadine Lustre, James Reid, and their crew didn't only ring in the new year, but the hot summer season, too! The gang spent NYE in La Union to welcome 2017 with a bang, and make some noise they did especially when Nadine posted photos on Instagram! She made the loudest noise by looking hot, hot, hot in a bikini! And while she only posted a photo showing her sexy back, her friend Debbie Then posted a frontal shot of her, revealing her super fit bod. (via pep.ph)
Crying isn't exactly the ideal way to start the year, but it was what Liza Soberano ended up doing, care of Enrique Gil. But the tears she shed were happy ones because Enrique just made one of her dreams come true by giving her a Chanel Boy Flap bag! "I've been wanting to buy this bag forever but it's nearly impossible to find one with the specifications I wanted, but this man conquered the impossible and got it for me. Thank you for making me the happiest and thank you for making my dreams come true @enriquegil17," she said in her IG post. #RelationshipGoals (via pep.ph)
Two days into 2017 and Ariana Grande is already slayin' this year! She recently announced that she will be featured in the Final Fantasy Brave Exvius mobile game! Her character? "It's the cutest thing I've ever seen in my entire life and I'm so excited and in love with it I cannot contain myself," she said describing her Dangerous Woman costume-wearing character who has a singing special power in an Instagram post. Well-deserved, Ari! (via teenvogue.com)
It was only a week ago when Danielle Campbell posted a sweet birthday greeting on her Instagram for Louis Tomlinson (whom she called "my love"), which is why we find the HHWW pic and Snapchat vid of her and Gregg Sulkin—on New Year's eve, no less—soooo confusing! What's more, a fan uploaded another vid from Gregg's friend's Snapchat revealing Danielle kissing another girl at the strike of midnight. So is #LounielleIsOver for real? And did Danielle really leave Louis for Gregg? (via dolly.com.au)
Just when we thought Billie Lourd was ending the year on a sweet note, what with her budding romance with Scream Queens co-star Taylor Lautner, 2016 took a full 180 on her and left her heartbroken because of the death of her mother, Carrie Fisher AND grandmother, Debbie Reynolds. Her SQ pals and fans were quick to show her support and after what seemed like ages, Billie finally broke her silence and posted a photo on Instagram saying, "Receiving all of your prayers and kind words over the past week has given me strength during a time I thought strength could not exist. There are no words to express how much I will miss my Abadaba and my one and only Momby. Your love and support means the world to me." Tight hugs, Billie! (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.
