Next Blogger Event 2017 | ELLEKATE

Happy Tuesday,Hope you all had a great weekend? On Friday, I went down to London to attend the Next Blogger Network Event. Personally, this was my first ever blogging event, I've always wanted to push myself outside of my own comfort zone and officially attend one of these! So I finally did it, I got a train ticket, headed down to London and I'm super glad that I did.Upon arriving at the Ace Hotel room 100 I was instantly just in love with the whole aesthetic to the place, I would highly recommend viewing it if you are wanting to host your own event.

Reflecting on Twenty Sixteen │ ELLEKATE

Saying goodbye to 2016, We had a good laugh, I guess, I can say that there was some definite positive which I will take with me for the rest of my life. But also some bad times, I would say I want to forget about them. Instead, I will look at them as learning curves. We started with a trip to New York City, was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. Got to see the city from a whole new perspective and get a sense of living on my own without my mum and dad. In April, I entered the last year of my teens which is ultimately a scary thought that I will be[...]

Happy Monday,After a few messages, I've decided to write up what I personally believe was the best places to eat throughout the Disney Land Paris Resort following mine and Beth's recent trip there. Now not all of the images will be my own just either because I didn't take pictures of them or didn't like the photos essentially. I shall also be including Restaurants that are outside of the parks and inside of the Disney Village.I know for a fact that people hate rambling on a post like this, so I'm just going to get into it. So finally, if you would like any other[...]

Mothers Day Walks │ Photography

 Happy Mothers Day,Today I was still not feeling well but we took to the road and went to Bamburgh beach, which if you have never had the chance to go there it possibly my favourite beach in the UK and we have some pretty spectacular beaches. We didn't go for very long it only takes us about an hours car journey to get up there but it was a nice way to spend it with my mum. Driving up there was a little bit of a challenge as our dog (Buddy) hates car journeys so was panting the whole way up there, hopefully with sometime he will start getting use to the them. I w[...]
