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…

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…

Surf and Sea: Elyu Day 1.

It’s been a while since I went on a road trip (Tagaytay doesn’t really count because it’s only about 2 to 2 and a half hours away), so when I knew that a long weekend was coming up, I decided it would be a good time to go somewhere and take a break. It’s also…
