Looks like Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik sparked engagement rumors again! The news kicked off for another time around because of new evidence surfacing, dazzling us with all the sparkles is a ring on Gigi's ring finger! The photo was taken backstage at the Alberta Ferretti show where Gigi was posing with rising model Halima Aden. There's no word yet from our cute couple, but we'd be major thrilled if this news was real! (via


Our favorites, Calvin Harris, Frank Ocean, and Migos just released a new collaboration that you just got to listen to. It may be a new favorite for us because it sounds so good! The song we're talking about is "Slide" and it's finally available on iTunes and Apple Music. (via

Even if there's bad blood between Taylor Swift and Katy Perry, that doesn't mean that best friend Ed Sheeran can't have an adorable friendship with both of them. When Katy was doing an interview with BBC radio 1, Ed walked by and Katy joked about how "Shape of You" beat her song. She screamed at Ed "Thanks, babes, for keeping me off the number 1 spot, thanks." Ed just casually went inside the room and interrupted the interview with him reminiscing the first time he met Katy. Watch the video below to see how cute their first encounter story was. (via

What do you think of Yassi Pressman being the next Darna? Yassi definitely fits the role, but this too good to be true news was denied by Yassi herself, saying, "hindi po, hindi po" then she continued, "Opo, nakikita ko po sa Twitter at nakikita ko po sa Facebook. Pero hindi po." Even if she rejected all the rumors, that doesn't mean that she isn't flattered about her being the netizens top of mind for playing the role of Darna.  (via


"Sobrang laking honor. Kahit sabihin na even if I don't get to play the role, kung isa ako sa mga naiisip nila na possible, eh sobrang nakakatuwa." —Yassi Pressman

We can't wait for Kathryn Bernardo's birthday prod next month on ASAP! Recently, a video was uploaded of Kath dancing to Ed Sheeran's "Shape of You".  Despite being the teen queen, Kath just proved that she can be an amazing dancer, too! (via

If you know me, and know me well, I am not the biggest fan of idyllic lifestyles. With a Type A personality, I act immediately upon whatever challenge that needs to be addressed. I actually enjoy keeping my mind preoccupied: doing university work in my favourite cafe then running errands around town, grocery shopping here, updating my accounts there, photocopying documents on the way down the street - all just in time before having a glass of champagne at the bar with my friends come evening.

And so, you could imagine my bewilderment when the next challenge to be faced was an extensive self-quarantine protocol. I didn’t know what to do when my greatest responsibility in this situation was to do nothing at all. My first few attempts to combat my consternation were very much rooted in distraction and imagination. My distractions involved conducting research, writing songs, calling family and friends, filming videos, and eating chocolate! My imaginations and fantasies were centred on travelling, shopping, even clubbing (which I rarely do) for when they find a cure to COVID-19. I did anything and everything that could be considered constructive in order to pass the time, mainly hoping I could just undertake the basic human necessities to survive - that is, eat and sleep the day through - until the next day comes, until the world is closer to becoming a better place, until quarantine ends, until my flight follows through, until I see my family and friends again.

Days in self-isolation and suspended flights turned to weeks and turned to months. By the third extension here in Spain where I study Fashion Business, I had to tell myself this shall be my new normal now, that I was blessed to be healthy, that I was tired of merely existing and missed what it was like to actually live - even if just within four walls. Little by little, I began to find significance in the simple occurrences of the day: the soft glare of the rising sun beaming golden streaks through my bedroom window upon waking up, the fragrance of freshly washed bed sheets that I had painstakingly hung to fit a relatively small clothes rack without crumpling them, the crunch and tanginess of warm toasted bread topped with raspberry marmalade, the buzzing sound of a phone call from home just waiting to be answered, to the caress of a fuzzy sweater to keep warm at night. I realised, “What pleasures to be enjoyed in the pause of slow living!” Through this continued pause, which I loathed at first, I began to appreciate each moment of the day rather than wish it would pass more swiftly, moments I had overlooked so often before the lockdown. I started to find that the challenge of self-isolation was never to pause both the regular routines of life as well as the positive emotions that came with these - as initially, I thought it meant to pause all happiness, so as to withstand a time of endurance in hopes for a better tomorrow, much like a form of delaying gratification. Life is just too fragile these days to delay gratification any further.

Life has paused, but it has not stopped. Believe that like any punctuation mark in a sentence, the pause will provide the right timing of things to take place. Till then, let us not waste our time waiting. Instead, we could be in the moment, seek substance in simplicity (that is, in what we already have), And enjoy the pleasure in pause. “Practice the Pause. When in doubt, pause. When angry, pause. When tired, pause. When stressed, pause. And when you pause, pray.”
