General

Yes, I do. Please visit my portfolio here or you could send me and email at yanadelacruz@gmail.com and we’ll talk about it.

I use a Canon EOS 7D with a 18-200mm and a 50mm lens.

Forever 21+ is the BOMB! They have awesome clothes for curvy women like us! SM Dept. Store‘s Plus Size section is my second go-to place to shop. Last but not the least, Get Laud Plus! for affordable and super chic plus-size clothes!

To be honest,  I learned everything through self-study.  I experimented during my first year on blogging and eventually made my own graphics using Photoshop. Tutorials from the internet helped me a lot. Though during my senior year in High school, we were taught HTML. But when entered college,  I improved on Photoshop, Illustrator and many more.

I graduated from the University of Santo Tomas and Bachelor of Fine Arts Major in Advertising.

I started Chasing Euphoria during the summer of 2011 but I maintained other blogs before (Been blogging for 8 years now!). I’ve been blogging professionally ever since.

Euphoria /y u̇ -ˈfōr-ē-ə, -ˈfȯr-/means, an emotion as an intense state of transcendent happiness combined with an overwhelming sense of contentment. The word derives from Greek εὐφορία, “power of enduring easily, fertility”. It is a feeling of great elation, especially when exaggerated.

Chasing Euphoria, basically I love to follow my dreams. I’ll do whatever it takes just to reach it and I don’t care about the problems I might face before getting there. My dreams = my happiness. I wish to be forever happy.
PS: I just found out that there’s a band named Chasing Euphoria.

Well, I started blogging when I was a high school freshman – 7 years ago. I was inspired by upper-class men who manages their own blog. If I’m not mistaken, I first opened my blog in Xanga or maybe in Tabulas. Got hooked ever since.

I am currently hosted by OfBlue Web Hosting which is based in the US. I’ve been with them for almost 3 years now and I must that they’re super awesome! I really love their service and their patience to their customers. Whenever my blog is down or I need help with WordPress, they’re always there to the rescue!
