How to Throw a 4th of July Party According to Taylor Swift
Independence Day weekend, which they celebrate on the 4th of July, just happened in the US. We've been busy stalking all our favorite celebrities' Instagram and Snapchat accounts all weeekend. But we've decided that if we want to get on someone's 4th of July party guest list, we choose Taylor Swift. Girl throws parties like no other. Don't believe us? Just check out the awesome snaps from her patriotic weekend with her friends and loved ones. Squad goals, y'all.
Step 1 Set the mood.
Of course you need to start a party with something fun like this barkada pic that just screams "Fourth of July!" And it helps to have people like Gigi Hadid, Martha Hunt, Empire's Serayah, and the HAIM sisters. NBD. P.S. This picture can also be captioned Stars and Stripes. Are we right or are we right? :P
Step 2 Make sure there's food.
You can totally just order in if you want, but nothing says comfort than food you actually made yourself! Plus, you can always get your friends to help you out, too.
Step 3 Take a group pic.
Remember the awesome occasion by immortalizing the moment in a photo. You can whip out your selfie stick, GoPro, or a camera on self-timer to make sure that everyone is in the shot!
Step 4 Make room for dessert.
What's a party without cake? Add sparklers for a more festive effect.
Step 5 Be silly with your bae.
Parties are meant to be fun! Let loose, goof around, and don't be afraid to just have a blast.
Step 6 Make sure everyone else has fun, too.
It's not just important that you have fun, you should also make sure your guests are having a great time, too.

Step 7 Dress for the occasion.
Tay's bestie Ed made sure to come in red. LOL! To match the flag, maybe? Either way, we approve of your sartorial choice, Mr. Sheeran. You keep doing you.
Step 8 Go matchy!
Having your friends sleep over so you can take the festivities well into the night? Be totally cheesy in twinsies onesies. Don't forget to take a photo to remember your #OOTN!

Hi! It's been so long since I planned to post my story in another platform aside from wattpad and now here I am, hoping that my story can be featured here.
My story is entitle "Who Are You," it's a tagalog-english teen fiction story so I hope, those filipinos who visit here can read my story!
WHO ARE YOU: PRELUDE
Sinungaling na ba ako kung sasabihin ko sa inyo ang pangalan ko? Hindi ako sure kung anong sasabihin kong pangalan ko pero may nagsasabi sa aking wag nalang magpakilala sa inyo.
May gusto lang naman akong itanong... Paano kung may makilala ka sa kasalukuyan na nagpapaalala sayo sa nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang nakilala mo sa kasalukuyan ay may tinatago pa lang sikreto na kahit siya mismo ay walang alam pero may kinalaman sa iyong nakaraan? Anong gagawin mo kung ang dalawang ito ay may koneksyon? Anong pipiliin mo? Ang nakilala mo sa nakaraan? O ang nagpakilala bilang ibang tao sa kasalukuyan? Past? Or Present?
There was this guy I dated for a while but things didn't turn out well. I was so into him that one night I can't stop thinking about him, I've decided to send his MOM a message on facebook confessing how much I like her son. I wish it ended there but no. I had to make it so emotional, lengthy and detailed like the drama queen I am. Luckily, it went to message request so I'm hoping she hasn't really read it yet. Up until this day it makes me cringe whenever I think about it but hey, whenever it pops in my mind I make myself laugh too so thank you self for being unbelievably shameless and brave when it comes to love. I may age faster because I have made a lot of cringe-worthy moments that I constantly make faces out of embarrassment just reflecting on my antics but I know I've made more hilarious memories than what ifs and somehow that makes the disappointments feel more like assurances that I have gave it my all and I have lived as honest (maybe a little to honest) as I could. #ItsOnlyNatural #CanBnatural
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!
