This pandemic has kept us all cooped up and if you're like us who found our way into the world of binge-watching YouTube a-day-in-the-life or productivity videos, you may have stumbled upon Elly Belly's vlogs already. Amidst all the YouTube vloggers out there, Elly Belly has easily become one of our favorites for her coffee shop adventures, study-with-me clips, and productivity hacks, all in a soft, warm-toned aesthetic that makes her videos very relaxing to watch.
Here, she shares with us more about herself, how she takes her Canvas Club bags in all her errands and adventures, and how it helps her achieve that minimalist Korean style that we all currently can't seem to get enough of.
1. About me
Name: Elly Belly
Location: Davao City, Philippines
Profession: 4th year medical student
Social media handles:
@ellyb.elly on Instagram, elly belly on YouTube
2. Describe a day in your life
This may sound boring, but this is how I spend the majority of my (not-so) mundane days: I get up, make coffee, attend Zoom lectures, study, edit vlogs, eat, sleep, and the cycle goes on.
3. Describe your personal style
Honestly, my own style is highly influenced by my mood. (and sometimes a direct reflection of how I feel at the time lol) I get some of my ideas from my fave Korean vloggers and Pinterest! However, I've been gravitating towards more basic and neutral clothes lately. 🤍
4. Share a productivity hack/secret
Put your phone down when you're completing tasks. This isn't exactly a secret because I'm sure everyone has heard it a thousand times, but it works for me. The constant buzz of social media can be distracting at times, so it's necessary to give yourself a break from social media so you can focus on the important things.
I'd also like to point out that being “productive” doesn't always imply getting everything done or overworking oneself; it can also mean taking a break. To have a productive day, you must also take some time off.
5. Name an artist/band that you would like to soundtrack your life
On top of my mind, that would be Coldplay. I've always imagined making a "music video" of Charlie Brown with myself as the main character (I’m too shy to admit this, but anyone can dream, right? hahaha). It's my all time favorite Coldplay song.
6. What's your favorite Canvas item?
It’s kinda hard to choose because I really like the Mailman Sling in Beige, but the Basic Canvas bag in Choco is also an ultimate fave. 😭 I’ve used it countless times already. It’s literally helpful especially when I’m studying outside or running errands. I can fit my iPad and vlogging camera and it goes with any outfit!
7. Why do you like using Canvas?
The best thing about Canvas is that their designs are very straightforward — not to mention the number of pockets! It’s extremely convenient when I need quick access to all of my stuff. I also love their color selection which is pretty much muted. 🤍 Uncomplicated with style. Definitely a wardrobe staple.
8. How do you make your Canvas yours?
This may sound cliche, but — be comfortable with your style, carry your Canvas with confidence, and don’t be afraid to express yourself with the pieces that you wear. 🤍
