How Costa Coffee Made a Girl's Dream Trip to London a Reality

For many Filipinos, visiting London would be a memory of a lifetime, with so many world-class sights to see. Imagine a #LondonStyle relaxation listening to the sound of rain while sipping on a Costa Crafted Green Tea Latte.

So, how do you make a dream trip to London a reality?

It's as simple as recording a 30-second video, singing a song from any British artist, then uploading it on Instagram. Seriously, I can't believe you can win a round trip ticket for 2 in London, U.K. for free, just by singing your heart out. It seems too good to be true, but hey, dreams do come true. Thanks to Costa Coffee's #SingYourWayToLondon promo.

Top 5 Power Dressing Myths Every Girl Should Say Goodbye To

I grew up believing the myth that short girls can't wear stripes and maxi dresses because it makes them look shorter and larger than you are. But as I grow older (and wiser) I've learned that not only can I wear whatever I please, some maxi dresses with stripes or bold prints are quite flattering. Now, I just wear what my little heart desires and shrug off the haters.

Oh, and I want to take a minute to debunk a few fashion myths on how a power dresser should be. Btw, a power dress is something you feel strong, confident and beautiful in. A dress that will give the confidence to face the world like a girl boss. I believe every woman should own at least one.

In today's modern fashion world, the truth about "power dressing" should set you free so let me clear out a few things here.

Beauty Sale Alert + Five Ways to #StepUpYourEyeGame with SM Beauty

Have you ever wished you can nail the perfect looks of your fave beauty vloggers on YouTube? Well, here's my word of advice: Don't just wish for it to happen. Don't just imagine it and make it happen by stepping out of your comfort zone. If you already did your brows, why don't you try a bold cat eye, or maybe add some glitter. There's a million possibilities that you could try out!

If you're still figuring out where to start, explore the widest array of makeup options that The SM Store Beauty Section offers to help you level up your eye game!

Here, five ways to #StepUpYourEyeGame with SM Beauty:

1. Try different eye looks by using a bright and bold eyeshadow, from bold electric blue and daytime glitter to black and soft purple, because this season's hottest eye makeup trends aren't made to be subtle. Really. Use eye shadow shades that will enhance your eye color.

Here, I used black and purple eyeshadow with a bit of shimmer. I have hazel brown eyes and I love using neutral shades but this time, I completed my whole look with a bit of muted purple and blended the crease with black shadow to add a touch of intensity. It's something that I don't usually do but hey, there's always a "first time" right? So, yay or nay?

#ChooseTheRightHue and Find Happiness at Bounty Fresh Egg's #WorldEggDay Event

In a world full of reds, pinks and purples, be a yellow. It may not be everyone's favorite but one day, you'll discover one splash of color that can brighten up a seemingly dull, grey day. 🌞 It shines with optimism, positivity and happiness.

 I just find myself happy with the simple things.  And today, I'm speaking as a  self-proclaimed egg-head and yellow-lover, who loves eating (you guessed it) amazing egg dishes. I just found it so bizarre that I didn't have options when I woke up in the morning and wanted an egg! When I go to the supermarket, it makes me happy to find healthy or organic eggs. Thanks to Bounty Fresh! They make EGG-ceptional eggs that are Nutri-filled, Omega 3-enriched, Organic Selenium, and Cage-free! And if I cook a brunch for my kids, it's really omelets with Bounty Fresh eggs. Indeed, a simple yet tasty omelet can definitely make a bad day better.

“Kayo Rin Po”: Uber Fosters Community Spirit

"Share ko lang... I had a super fun chikahan with my Uber driver awhile ago. He worked as a security guard for 15 years and now, more than a year na syang Uber driver. I discovered that the reason why he's working 12-15 hours a day is to be able to send his 4 kids to school. Sobrang sipag nya. Alam mong pagod sya pero masaya pa rin makikipagusap sayo. 😊 He said he's always wanted to have a relaxing #dayoff with his family pero sakto lang yung kinikita nya for their expenses. So guys, help me convince @uber_phl to make this happen. #KayoRinPo Tatay Delfin, sana magkaroon ng relaxing day with your family, and sana makapagtapos ng pagaaral ang mga anak nyo. Ako nga po pala yung nagpa-picture sa inyo kanina. 😂 Thank you po sa paghatid sa akin safely at sa masayang kwentuhan. Ingat po sa byahe."

I'm really glad Uber is launching a campaign that aims to build a stronger sense of community between riders and drivers. Uber intends to do this by giving back to the drivers that have helped get us to where we need to go.

Uber releases a touching new video on the lives of three Uber drivers, and how a little act of kindness from riders can go a long, long way.  Watch the video:
