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[...]


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[...]


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[...]


Day of Photography │ ELLEKATE

It's been a while,But I have been focusing on my work and self which to me is the most important thing of all. A few of you will know that last week I took a last minute trip to Disney Land Paris, but don't worry I made sure to capture as much of the trip as I could and a post will be out once I have edited all of the photos. Anyways, with Jess being home for a few days we had a chance to go out and go back to getting a few photos of me like old times. In all honesty, it was a strange feeling to be back behind the lens like in a professional sense as it has been s[...]


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[...]


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[...]
