What Do You Get When You Put Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, 5SOS, The Vamps, and Sam Smith Together?
One of the items on our Christmas wishlists every year is a concert ticket so we can watch our favorite musical acts perform live. So when we heard Capital FM just had the Jingle Bell Ball 2014 this weekend, which brought our fave musicians together, we just had to watch. We're feeling a little envious of all the people who got the chance to witness the whole thing live at the O2 Arena in London where the event was held. But thank goodness for the Internet, we can sort of be there with them while the entire gathering is going on. Click the GIFs to watch their performances.
5 Seconds of Summer performed sans Michael Clifford, because dude lost his passport so he couldn't fly to London. Boohoo! Although the cuties nailed their performance of "Don't Stop," "Good Girls," "Amnesia," and "She Looks So Perfect" we still kind of miss seeing one of our favorite guys rock it onstage.

The Vamps performed their very first track, "Can We Dance" for the crowd which got everyone bustin' the moves. Aside from singing the band's first song that somehow launched their careers, the cuties also did "Last Night" and "Somebody To You" for the #CapitalJBB crowd.CONTINUE READING BELOWRecommended Videos

Showing off his amazing vocals that led him to secure 6 Grammy Awards 2015 nominations, Sam Smith performed his hits "Latch," "La La La," "I'm Not the Only One," and "Stay With Me." This is only getting us more excited for May next year when he's set to perform here in Manila for the first time ever!ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
Ed Sheeran sang crowd favorite, "Thinking Out Loud." Even though he didn't do his ballroom dance moves, Ed still managed to make the crowd do some dancing on their own when he sang "Don't" with a sample of "No Diggity" at the end. How cool is that, right? Aside from his tracks off the album, X, the Brit singer also sang "The A Team," "Lego House," and "Drunk" for the #CapitalJBB crowd. Crazy excited for March 2015!
Pop sensation Taylor Swift was also there to perform her latest track off 1989, "Blank Space." Girlfriend also did a kickass rendition of "I Knew You Were Trouble" which sent the audience in a frenzy that night. She closed the event with an explosive performance of "Shake It Off," which was the perfect track to end the night with, we think.

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.
