Go Local: Ellana Cosmetics.

Continuing on with my search for local makeup, I decided to try Ellana Cosmetics. They’ve been in the market for a long time, I think, are cruelty-free, and have a range that consists mostly of mineral products. Just a note though: their products are up there in terms of price. I purchased four products from…

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.

Amigurumi.

Amigurumi are plush toys made from yarn. I’ve seen them a lot over the years but haven’t really thought to get some for myself; that is until recently. For a long time, I’ve been looking for a fugu (puffer fish) plush toy, and haven’t been able to find one. One day last week, I was looking…
