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[...]

Center Parcs | Elle Travels | ELLEKATE

Have you ever just needed a weekend away?A few weeks back, that's exactly what I was in need of. After a week of being at University and work, Dan and I were both given the weekend off. I cannot even remember how we came around to the final decision to book Center Parcs, however, I do recall going to the page and finding out about their Lakeside Apartments being exactly what we needed for a relaxed weekend away.When I was younger, a trip to Center Parcs, was our annual family get together. A family tradition around Easter time. One year, we had one of the biggest[...]

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[...]

Real Talk | ELLEKATE

It's time for some real talk.It has come to my awareness, for some time now that I have been rather distant, from here (blogging), from my social life and from my work life.that's down to my mental health.A subject nobody seems to want to talk about, but after a conversation with a good friend today, I've realised it's important, to be honest with not only myself but the people I hold dearest.Though I could sit here all day and give you the long dramatic life story about how poor young Elle was left scared by a long spell of bullying and mental torture. However, y[...]

Clothes Show Live 2016 │ ELLEKATE

So two sundays back,Had to be one of the best days. If you didn't read my last post, I was asked if I would like to attend clothes show live as a blogger (which was pretty darn cool). So I and the family made the day-long round trip to Birmingham NEC to get to go attend this event.We didn't arrive until 12 pm which is a shame, as I would have love to have been there from the start. However, this didn't change our experience we still had a lovely time. We booked in for a fashion show and went to have a look around the event and try to grab some deals. Overall there[...]

Good Afternoon all,So! I am currently working towards my final hand in's for this semester at University, I am for that reason going to be a bit inactive on the blog and my other social media's.

Adore Me │ Fall Love Book

Hey,So I'm back again with one of my all time favourite companies, Adore me. If you cast your mind back to last winter. I did a post called the 'The Nightwear Before Christmas', showing all my favourites from their latest collection that I would love to have owned along with all the things I love to do on the night before Christmas. This time I am back working with them, but on a fall inspiration board.Personally, I feel so much better heading out for the day with a matching set of underwear (even though nobody can see it) and some nice shade of lipstick to match[...]

Goodbye Cruelty │ ELLEKATE

Good Afternoon,Slightly off topic today but I think this is defiantly a subject that I would like to discuss on here. That topic being animal cruelty, and what I'm doing with my personal life to stop all that. Since of around April of this year there has been a real change in attitude of how I feel about certain products and lifestyle choices that not only have been noticed by myself but by friends and family members. Around 2 years ago, I turned Vegetarian. It wasn't a long coming decision although I didn't really ever eat red meat even as a child, it was very mu[...]

Autumnal Love │ ELLEKATE

Just around the corner lies my favourite season of the year. Autumn.I cannot put a finger on to why this is my favourite time of the year, I've never been a fan of the cold but the nostalgia of sitting, looking out the window covered in a wool blanket clasping onto a hot chocolate (loaded with marshmallows) there is just something about it.So since the season is just around the bend, and this British summer has been possibly the worst weather of all. I thought I'd write a little list of why I love the season, I'm currently writing a project around it also so I[...]
