24 Hours In London | Elle Travels | ELLEKATE

Happy Friday!A few short weeks ago, I and my good chummy Charlie decided to take a trip down to London so he could attend a pretty darn important interview. Originally I had planned to write a post on my trip down there and everything which I got up too whilst I pondered around the city, however, I thought that people might appreciate a little photo diary of everything which I got up to whilst I was down there.So enjoy this mini photo series of me having a blissful trip down in the big smog. Apologies for the more shorter styled posts as of recent, I promise that[...]

Lush Haul | ELLEKATE

Sadly,Christmas now feels more of a distant memory, do not worry. I have a post that might bring a little bit of spirit back into your hearts. As most of you reading this are probably well aware, to mark the end of the Christmas sales, LUSH sell off all of their holiday seasons items for half price.(screams with joy)Each year, I have walked past the Newcastle store usually popping in and treating myself to one of the Snow Fairy shower gels, my all-time favourite Lush product. This time, I took that rather a bit further than in previous years.You may be thinking t[...]

Time To Close This Chapter | ELLEKATE

It began with dreams, high hopes.Daily I would be reminding myself that I should allow to take each day as it comes, not just overthinking what had already came to be. But, as the days would go by for some bizarre reason I found it getting worse. Come summer I thought I had hit a high, but let's just say I may as well had taken one step forward and ten back.As much as I would love to sit here, getting into full depth over how my life came to end me deciding not to celebrate the ending of 2017; but that's not something I don't think I could be emotionally ready to[...]

Something from IT | ELLEKATE

Autumn.Blissfully, my favorite time of the year, from the warming colours, wrapping yourself up in big warm blankets and going for long walks. There is just something about it! The other week, my girl Jess was home for a few days back from Leeds, and what would an occasion that we see each other be spent any better than going for a mini photoshoot. So that is exactly what we did! Back when I was down in Cornwall, was when I found this little jacket of mine from a small sailors shop. From the brand 'Mousqueton Bretagne', based in France. Not only does it look nic[...]

ZAAP Thai Food | Review | ELLEKATE

Thai'm for a new review!This week, We went over to one of the latest additions to the restaurant scene in Newcastle - Zaap Thai! Aesthetically you are transported to a Bangkok street food market, complete with glowing street signs hanging above you and even Tuk Tuks. Whilst we were having a glace over the menu, we decided to try out a couple of the cocktails which they had on offer and for us, it had to be 'Pucket on the Beach' simply for the amazing use of wordplay! But, I'm so glad this was the drink of choice because I think Leanne will agree these were fantast[...]

Being the fir[...]

Heidi & Co | Libby May Stars Necklace | ELLE KATE

Jewellery, Precious meaningful items that you wear upon your body for the whole world to see. Sometimes they have deep connections to who you are, other times they are simply just a fashion statement you have to spice up your wardrobe. For me, I am both. Sometimes you'll find me sporting a pair of huge golden heart hoops. But 9/10 ill be wearing my rings. Each have a deep connection to myself, from close friends and family member as gifts. A lot of my close contacts know just how much these mean to me. One example just the other week, (rather intoxicated) I had my[...]

Blank Canvas Cosmetics | Product Review | ELLEKATE

Normally I would like to include items into non-exclusive posts, something which would be more of a unique and interesting read. However, a bit of a change of hand today as I have honestly fallen in love with how well these makeup brushes work.So these two were kindly sent to me from the beauties at Blank Canvas Costmetics. They sent two types of face brushes out of there 'Dimension Series' the F06 (Metallic Gold Brush) helping keep my Contour on fleek. The other, still from the Dimension Series, is the F08 Brush (Metallic Rose Gold) which is a Dome Buffing Brush.[...]

Finnnaallly here | The Cornwall Diaries | ELLEKATE

After two days of travelling, we have finally arrived in Cornwall.Well, we shall be staying in the beautiful bay of Falmouth for the next several days and we have lots of plans whilst we are down here. Best to have it all crammed into the next week because I don't believe I could handle that drive for a very long time. (except to get home of course).So. After waking up this morning in the beautiful Bull Inn which was close to Oxford, it was time for the drive down. I took some last minute pictures of the hotel before we left and obviously had some food as well. Th[...]
