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[...]

World’s Strangest Friday | Day 8 of 90

Good Evening! Most Friday weekends, I'll be sat ready and waiting to take on the next morning. Head off for some Saturday morning coffee dates, a bit of shopping before getting a few drinks with family or friends. Erg. I can just see tomorrow, I'll get up maybe clean, go back to bed. Anyways. Since I was feeling a smudge bit crap, I decided to have a bit of a lie-in. I got up about 30 minutes before starting work and began the day. One thing which has been just great from our management. Usually, in the office, we will have Friday afternoon drinks. So, since we'[...]

It’s official, we’re working from home | Day 6 of 90

Hey guys, So if you couldn't tell already, today's post. Although continuing my day in day out life. We're officially no longer working from the office, but for the foreseeable future, you'll find me with my cuppa, sat at my makeshift desk watching rubbish on Netflix. As I'm sat resting now, my head feels weak. We're only at the first hurdle, and oh my. Although I've managed to maintain an active lifestyle up till now, a frequent gym routine, healthy diet, and all-round feeling good about my wellbeing. I've cried countless times, out of fear and confusion. Which[...]

*tumbleweed* Hey Everyone, Well, ouch. It's been a while. Something which started as me leaving my charger at work, then became me struggling to catch my tail after the weekend, and finally, I got sick. Do I feel like I've failed? Yes, slightly. I should be well into my fourteenth day! Let's use this opportunity to get back on the right track and welcome new beginnings for this challenge. Rather than giving up, we're just going to pick up from where we left off. Firstly, I feel as in everything which is happening at the moment. I was poorly. As no shock, a lot[...]

Hey, So where here are on the second day, firstly I have to say a big thank you for all the great responses yesterdays post. It's been a long time since I have had the energy to post and everyone's messages and engagement was seriously appreciated. I did 'slightly' cave.

So, not only did we have a little bit of a celebration between the past few days. As I got into work, I checked my diary to see I'd so far gyme[...]

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,[...]
