Go local: Careline.

Careline is one of those brands that I saw in stores for as long as I can remember. It’s one of the older brands in the Philippines and, under the Ever Bilena brand, it caters more to teenagers and young adults–as opposed to the latter whose audience is more widespread. In all the time I’ve…

Go local: Pink Sugar.

I like makeup. I don’t wear it everyday, but I get in moods where I spend some time gingerly putting some on–even when there’s no occasion and I’m just spending my day at home. I think that makeup is an easy way to express creativity, just one of those things that doesn’t need too much…

Take me back to the sea: Elyu.

I’m sitting here and going about the ups and downs of adult life, and also wanting to go back to the beach and take a break. I started to go back to my trip to La Union last year and thought I’d share some photos of the sea from back then. 😊 I didn’t post about the…

A lecture of a lifetime.

It’s been about two years since I stepped in a room with the sole purpose of learning. When I graduated in 2016, I didn’t think I would miss the mild to intense brain churning that comes with being in a lecture. I wasn’t avoiding it though of course (I’m always looking for learning opportunities), but…

Surf and Sea: Elyu Day 2.

This post is definitely long overdue. The last post about this trip was posted months ago. If you want to check that out, it’s right here. This is day two of our trip to La Union, spent mostly on the beach, but with some gems found in the city. Read on to find out more. 😊 The…

A new year, a new chance.

Hey! Happy new year! It’s been one helluva year, 2017. So much has happened all over the world, it’s kind of unreal. That said, 2018 has come upon us, and with this comes a new chance. A chance to be healthier, be more productive, be happier, be better. This is the time when people start…

Cali galleries: Mementos.

Throughout this trip, I collected some bits and pieces throughout the trip. As much as I love shirts and hoodies as souvenirs, I think that there’s something about small trinkets that just draws me to them. Looking at it now, I wasn’t able to get one from every stop, but regardless I think this collection…

Cali galleries: Balboa park.

Over a week later, and this adventure is coming to a close. If you want to check out the other installments of this series, you can check this post. We’re starting this off after lunch–with my stomach, heart, and soul being full with burger and fries. After we ate, we drove over to  we went…

Taking a break. . .

Hi! I know I missed a week of posting, but I’ve been feeling really crazy lately. My head is really cluttered and confusing, and I think I need some time to reorganize and get my stuff together. That said, I decided that I will be taking a break from posting for the rest of the…

Music monday (on a tuesday): Soap.

The Voice is probably one of my favorite talent shows, and I like to sometimes rewatch the performances from past seasons. Recently, I fell down a rabbit hole of The Voice videos, googled where some of my favorites are now, and I stumbled upon Melanie Martinez and this song. It’s kind of a weird track,…

Just a little update.

Hey! I know my last post was two days late, and I was going to apologize there, but I decided to just make a separate post about it. I’m really super sorry about the late post, and also for not yet posting the other Cali Gallery and La Union posts. I’ve been kind of out…

Music monday (on a wednesday): Help me out.

I haven’t heard of a new song from Maroon 5 for a while now (although I may just have been out of the music loop for years), so when I saw this track a few weeks ago on Spotify, I decided to give it a play–and I really liked what I heard. It fits well…
