Elese is a Cosier writer. Drawing on the many hats she’s worn in the past, including makeup artist, lecturer, swim coach, cake decorator, and strawberry picker, she’s the Cosier go-to expert when it comes to beauty products, kitchenware and all things coffee. She’s also an avid over-researcher (and over-purchaser) of second-hand furniture, and is on a life-long quest to find the perfect pair of jeans. Elese is a strong advocate of Sundays, good butter, and warm sourdough.
