The Awesomeness that is "Little Things" Part 2 ♥

After enticing the fans with five teasers (one for each member) last week, the video for One Direction's newest song "Little Things" finally premiered on One Direction's VEVO channel in Youtube at 5PM GMT (1AM PST) last November 02, 2012 (November 03 here in the Philippines).

As early as 7PM last Friday, I was already online, busy checking on my Facebook and Twitter for updates + spazzing with my Directioner friends. The premiere was 6 hours away so I just stayed online because if I go to sleep, I might not wake up at 1AM. I really wanted to be part of history and be one of those who got to witness the premiere. Louis, Niall, and Harry were also online on Twitter.

Meanwhile... some of One Direction's new songs from "Take Me Home" leaked out on the Internet a few days before the release of the new album. I got to listen to some snippets, and it made me more excited. "They Don't Know About Us" has a really nice intro~ and the fact that Louis and Harry took part in the songwriting makes my shipper heart happy. ♥

So basically, as 1AM approaches, I'm getting more nervous and excited at the same time. I tweeted the number of hours left from time to time. At 12:30AM, everyone on Twitter was also making the countdown. The suspense grows stronger by the minute. 15 minutes, 10 minutes, 5 minutes, 1 minute left till the premiere~ everyone was refreshing the One Direction VEVO Youtube channel.

The clock hit 1AM~ and everyone was wondering why the video hasn't come out yet. At 1:03AM, the video finally appeared.


I was so overwhelmed that I teared up while watching the video. To say that the video is perfect is an understatement. 

The black and white theme + the recording studio setup is just perfect. The boys looked ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS AND STUNNING. The video has a very laid-back mood which complemented the feel of the song. Unlike their previous videos, "Little Things" showed the mature side (except for Zayn poking Harry XD) of One Direction.

This is way too cute to be unnoticed. Zarry ♥ :D

More spazzing ensued after watching the video. Everyone was raving about how awesome the guys are and how they "died" whenever one member's face was zoomed. I screencapped the members' faces while running out of breath. XD


THAT STARE. /dies/

 Lee-yum looks kinda serious here~

Louis' mismatched eyes ♥

The fact that Niall plays the guitar in this song = ♥



So yeah. Being able to watch the premiere of "Little Things" with the other fans from around the world is really a nice experience for me. I have nothing but praises for everyone behind the song (ALL HAIL ED SHEERAN) and the video for coming up with an awesome interpretation of this love song.  ♥

Everything about "Little Things" is just perfect.

The awesomeness that is Little Things ♥♥♥

Tumblr's been blocked for the nth time here in our office, so basically, my life sucks right now. -_- 

Anyway, it's been a while since I last posted, so might as well rave about the best thing in the world today: the release of One Direction's follow-up single to "Live While We're Young", "Little Things" last October 29, 2012.

One word to describe the whole song: PERFECTION. ♥

I virtually fell in love the first time I heard it. The ingenuity of the lyrics, the acoustic vibe, the husky voices of Harry and Zayn, and of course, the harmonization of One Direction. The song fits them perfectly.

The lyrics were penned by the forever awesome Ed Sheeran (yeah, the guy behind "Lego House"), a close friend of the band and the same guy who wrote "Moments" (one of my favorites) for One Direction's debut album "Up All Night". 

God bless this guy because he even went against his management to make One Direction sing this song. *____*

The song "Little Things" can be coined as the older sister of "What Makes You Beautiful". While WMYB is an upbeat track, "Little Things" is a more mature, subtle and relaxed one. Tumblr, Twitter, and Facebook virtually exploded with spazz posts about the song, and I am one of them. 

Here goes the lyrics of this awesome song~ Go ahead and weep. ♥

Your hand fits in mine, like it’s made just for me.
But bear this in mind it was meant to be
And I’m joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me.
I know you’ve never loved the crinkles by your eyes when you smile
You’ve never loved your stomach or your thighs
The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine
But I’ll love them endlessly
I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if I do, it’s you
Oh it’s you they add up to
I’m in love with you, and all these little things
You can’t go to bed without a cup of tea
Maybe that’s the reason you talk in your sleep
And all those conversations are the secrets that I keep
Though it makes no sense to me
I know you’ve never loved the sound of your voice on tape
You never want to know how much you weigh
You still have to squeeze into your jeans
But you’re perfect to me
I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if it’s true, it’s you
It’s you they add up to
I’m in love with you, and all these little things
You’ll never love yourself half as much as I love you
You’ll never treat yourself right darling
But I want you to
If I let you know I’m here for you
Maybe you’ll love yourself like I love you oh.
And I’ve just let these little things slip out of my mouth
Cause it’s you, oh it’s you, it’s you they add up to

And I’m in love with you and all these little things
I won’t let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if it’s true, it’s you
It’s you they add up to
I’m in love with you, and all your little things


I teared up, okay?? T_____T The sweetness of the song is just so overwhelming. I virtually fell in love the first time I heard it. When Zayn and the rest of the lads started to sing, I just melted into a pool of water. Their voices are so soothing, calm, and relaxing--which made me fall in love with each one of them even more. It's a song of a guy who is so in love with a girl despite her imperfections. *sigh* Where the hell can I find a guy like that? Ed Sheeran practically dug out all of my insecurities and wrote about it.

Definitely one of the sweetest songs I've heard in years.

Hearing the lads sing it makes it more sweeter. I definitely cannot fathom myself screaming if I am going to watch it live---I'll just freeze in my place, feel the song, stare at the awesomeness that is One Direction, and let my tears freely flow. *sigh*

So yeah, "Little Things" now joins the ranks of my wedding song list, which includes a1's "Heaven By Your Side", NSYNC's "This I Promise You", and TVXQ's "On&On". <3

Here's the pretty catch~ "What Makes You Beautiful" tells you you're beautiful, "Little Things" make you believe that you are beautiful.

Penshoppe goes One Direction

Oh Penshoppe. You'll never regret going in One Direction. :)

So I mentioned before that the wacky guys of One Direction are going to be the newest models of Penshoppe. I was beyond ecstatic with the thought that I will see their posters and billboards soon. *_*

And now, here comes the video of One Direction for Penshoppe. It is 1000000% sure now that they'll be endorsing it.

Hearing five awesome, cute hot, sexy, and crazy guys say "Mabuheyyyy Philippines~!" is just so aaaaaasfdfgfghghgphojgkohjgb. *keysmash*


I AM SO EXCITED AND I JUST CAN'T HIDE IT. klfjgkjsosepjigheshgh

[SPAZZ] The Adventurous Adventures of One Direction

In all honesty, this is the best One Direction fanfic animation that I have seen so far. Well, this might be the ONLY One Direction animation around here, at least.

If you are a Directioner, you should have watched this at least once in your life. I've actually seen this for god-knows-how-many-times already, and I still laugh hard like it's the first time I saw it. My 11-year old cousin loves it so much too! Her like love for Harry got stronger (Harry has been her bias eversince) because of that video.

So, who is the brain behind this awesome video?

[SPAZZ] One Direction for Pepsi

*breathes in and out*


The guys of One Direction has just released their new commercial with football player Drew Brees for Pepsi. The head-to-head competition thingy between the quintet and Drew for a can of Pepsi was really amusing!

And you wouldn't believed what happened in the end. ^^

Here are some GIFs from the commercial. :)
