Still reeling from the awesomeness of One Direction weekend?

You’re not the only one. Our social media feed continues to be engulfed by fans’ memories of Harry, Louis, Liam and Niall’s two-night Manila invasion.

“Best night everrr!” many have declared.

If you need help recovering from your One Direction hangover (or the news of Zayn’s departure), these goodies might ease your pain.


We’re big fans of Pop Junk Love’s crafty creations. Sisters Maan and Roma Agsalud have created One Direction plushies, and they’re so cute we couldn’t pick a favorite. Make sure you grab a Zayn doll, too, and give him a big hug.

And if you’re also not over Ed Sheeran’s Manila concert, they have a plushie Ed as well.

Find Pop Junk Love on or Instagram @popjunklove.


Relive the sweetness of the weekend with Villa Del Conte’s limited-edition One Direction chocolate bars. Grab a Louis, Liam or Zayn (milk chocolate with cereals), Harry or Niall (dark chocolate with salted caramel) or the whole band (fine milk chocolate with hazelnut chips). One bar is P295, a set of five is P1,280, and a set of six is P1,480.

Visit Villa Del Conte at Greenbelt 5, Century City Mall, Shangri-La Plaza, Resorts World, Alabang Town Center and Robinsons Magnolia.



Penshoppe signed One Direction as its ambassadors in 2012.

We met the boys in London, at their campaign shoot for the brand, and Zayn told us then, “We realized on Twitter that we have quite a big following in the Philippines and that we got a lot of fans there, so we thought it would be cool to do something that the fans in the Philippines will see.”

To celebrate their arrival, Penshoppe has released One Direction-inspired shirts and sweatshirts. Our favorites are the #fangirling tank and Boybands Ruined My Life sweatshirt.


Dreading this One Direction-free weekend? Why don’t you curl up with a book (or five) about the boys?

National Book Store is a treasure trove for any 1D fan. The store has multiple titles devoted to the group. “One Direction: Meet One Direction” includes exclusive interviews, snippets from the boys’ life on the road, a list of their best moments so far, quizzes and more. Also an official One Direction book, the New York Times best seller “Where We Are: Our Band, Our Story,” is a must for fans (available in hardcover and paperback). In the book, each boy gets his own section to write about his thoughts, his favorite memories, the fans. Their words are accompanied by beautiful pictures, and the group interview at the end is a great read, too.

In “One Direction: Five Lives,” author Jim Maloney traces the boys’ journey from childhood to superstardom.

Although unofficial, “One Dream, One Direction” is a fun read, with fast facts, games and quizzes inspired by the group.

Other titles include “One Direction: One and Only,” by Nadia Cohen (available in paperback and hardcover), and “One Direction Confidential,” which boasts over 100 photos of the boys.
