Maxi Dress Styling + Back to ‘Normality’ | ELLE KATE

Right now nothings normal… or well at least not just yet. For about a month, I’ve been craving some sense of ‘normality’ even if it’s a new version of normal. Gosh, putting that down in writing does make me second guess myself. Anyways, I think one thing that would bring me a lot of comforts way back when I was shooting/creating blog content, what better way to celebrate that than to go back to where it all started with my homegirl Jess. Don’t worry; all her links are down at the bottom of this post, you’ll be wanting to check her work[...]

10 Sustainable Friendly Brands You Need To Check Out | Elle Kate

Happy World Earth Day 🌎 I'm hoping that you're all keeping well in these strange times we're experiencing. Hopefully, this little short read provides you with some inspiration and distraction to the surrounding world. For a hint of positivity, something relevant to today's message, with a world on lockdown pollution levels have taken a significant drop. Staggering figures released from the Centre for Research on Energy and Clean Air today reported that in Delhi the average nitrogen dioxide (burning fossil fuels) dropped by 15%. It's incredible to see amongst a[...]

Boiler-suit Brilliance | ELLEKATE

Morning guys! Today we are talking about a fairly old trend now as far as trends go, and we are talking about Boiler-suits. I have been following items which relate to this trend for a while on many fast fashion pages especially just getting an idea of what’s really cracking with this style. However, as much as I personally loved it, I could never find a one which was well flattering for my figure. If you didn’t also know I currently work in Urban Outfitters, and we got a delivery of these silky dreams in just over a month ago and I. AM. OBSESSED. Here it is,[...]

GUCCI MAMA? | ELLEKATE

Happy 2019! Hope you all had the best Christmas & New Years. Cause, I spent mine working -mainly- BUT still had a wonderful time chilling with my family and friends. So, you can probably tell from the title of this post about what I am going to talk about, however, let me just give a little disclaimer. Your girl is well aware that I have been very much spoilt this festive season, this post is not at ALL a case of me bragging about what I received, I’d be lucky no matter what I received but I wanted to just share that with all y’all! ….I am a Gucci mam[...]

Lady In Red | Spring Style | ELLEKATE

Happy Sunday, Whilst I was uploading some things to Instagram the other day, it got me thinking about how it has been far too long since I did a style post on the blog. As a matter of fact, I don’t believe I’ve ever uploaded a proper style post before. Strange since its one of my favourite things to talk about. I have been obsessing over co-ord outfits for a long time, just never seeming to find something that I would be able to pull off personally. However, one of this season’s hottest styles just so happens to be my dream co-ord creation. Double Denim. O[...]

Beast From The East | ELLEKATE

Brrr, Well! It has been a cold one up north this past week, in fact, I cannot recall seeing that much snowfall since I was about 10. Being the child that I am, I found it nothing but nostalgic. It brought back memories from the first smartphone I ever had back in the day, an HTC Wildfire, which I would sit and stare at the tiny screen begging for the weather forecast to change to deep snow so that the school would close and call it a snow day. So sitting in the house playing stupid amounts of Xbox, drinking tea and watching whatever movie that was on the TV was w[...]

Introducing the Diamond Room │ Gemporia

Good Morning all, Now, this post is rather different to the ones I would normally put on my site. However, I think that you will enjoy this one. If you direct your memories back a few weeks you will remember that I did a collaboration with the company 'Gemporia' a site dedicated to getting you beautiful gems for a affordable price (Who could say no to that right). Well the people at Gemporia have contacted me again this week to tell me all about there latest addition to the brand, The Diamond Room. Not launching until the 4th March 2016 this is a little sneaky pee[...]

Earliest EVER Christmas Haul….

Nope the title hasn't fooled you. This is possibly the earliest Christmas haul ill possibly ever write for you guys, but of course you will be thinking 'What is she talking about how can she get presents this early', 'STOP, its nowhere near Christmas', or my personal favourite 'It’s too early' it is never too early for Christmas. My real reasoning behind all of this is the other week Myself, Sister and Grandma hit the town to have a little neb around before she heads away for a 6 month trip down under to see my auntie. Being the utterly amazing women she is, ra[...]

YSL: Style Is Eternal at The Bowes Museum

Today was an early morning for the Harkins Clan, We all have a busy schedule and fitting in time for a nice day out is a hard thing to do, But this morning we all decided that we would push some time to go to the Yves Saint Laurent show at the Bowes museum. Not too far from where we live but still too far to travel by bus and be back home in time for work. I have always loved car journeys they remind me of the times when we would pack the car up early on a Friday morning, and drive away for a lovely weekend in the Lake District. By the time we had gotten half way[...]
