The first half of May has come and gone. How's your summer so far? Escapades and fun activities are still on top of our priority lists, but we're also setting our sights on news bits that are making big waves. Here are just a few of the things we learned this week.


Cannes Stunners



We're loving all the elegant looks at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival, but we were mesmerised by Lily-Rose Depp looking like a Greek goddess in a Chanel number. We also love Elle Fanning's minimalist Vivienne Westwood gown. The ever-stunning Susan Sarandon also stunned us with an Alberta Ferretti dress.


Paul & Shark opening



From Depp's fresh look, we're also looking forward to seeing the new offerings at Paul&Shark, which opened a new flagship boutique at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands.


Club Clio



Get ready to be part of Club Clio. Korean brands Clio, Peripera, and Goodal can now be found in the Philippines. Visit the first Club Clio shop on the third floor of TriNoma mall. The products will also soon be available online at ZALORA.

You can now have more fun on Instagram stories as the photo-sharing site has just launched face filters. Check them out and tell us which one is your favourite.

Add into your breakfast bowls



We all deserve to start our morning right with a hearty breakfast. But with that inevitable morning rush (which happens more often than not), we reach out for easier options that still pack a wholesome punch. Think granola, yoghurt, smoothies and juices — only better with a Superfood Blend.
