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[...]

Anatomicals Product Review | ELLEKATE

Good Morning.If you all follow my social media platforms you will be well aware of my recent delivery from the wonderful Anatomicals. The brand was ever so kind to have sent over three of their products for me to try out for myself and let you all know my thoughts. A couple of weeks on, and I can happily say that these are well worth a purchase, not only on quality but on price. All of these thoughts are my own, I haven’t been asked to say any of this on behalf of the brand but I felt as if this was a one worth sharing.Another wonderful bonus with Anatomicals ar[...]

Favourite Cruelty Free Beauty Brands | ELLEKATE

Good Morning,In the past ive posted the occasional post towards my cruelty free ways on the blog, but mainly in facebook rants into how people are still oblivious to the fact of what actually happens in these testing facilities. But, do not worry, today we are talking all about the best cruelty free brands that are on the market. Some are at high street prices, others, not so much. Ive made sure that I have left out all the brand which have parent companies which do test, as I know some people prefer that there is no involvement what so ever. Getting straight in[...]

Valentines Day Outfit Idea │ Day in Leeds.

Hello! So as requested I'm going to start working more with my styling in my blog, and what better day to start it on that Valentine's day. I have always been a sucker for Valentine's day, with all of the pretty flowers, being able to lie in bed to eat loads of chocolate and all of the quirky funny illustrations you find whilst scrolling through Pinterest. I had to head down to Leeds for the day, to complete some work for uni, and since Jess now lives in Leeds for a university. What better excuse to do a little Valentines Outfit of the day post! If you want to s[...]

Glitter Glamour │ ELLEKATE

So. Over the Christmas period I ended up falling rather ill, the last thing I did before I was completely stuck in bed for the next two weeks was written this post. Instead of re-writing the whole thing over again I thought I may as well add this little disclaimer, I'm currently writing another post which should follow shortly behind this one! Hope you all had the nicest time over the holiday season. XLike back in the day, Jess and I decided to have one of our old photoshoot sessions. So we headed out into the fields close to mine with a bag of glitter pots and co[...]

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[...]

Time To Get Fit │ Running the Great North Run

Not a typical post today,But I have decided as of yesterday to begin training for the Great North Run. If you are not from Britain or the North of England for that matter you may not know what is the run. Well, the Great North Run is a 13.1-mile run (Half Marathon) which will begin in the heart of Newcastle, the course will run over the tyne bridge and end at the coast of South Shields. Not for the light hearted, I mean people have been seriously injured or died from this run, however, let's not put a down point on the situation. But for someone like me, this will[...]

NYX Beauty Haul │ Blogger Meet Up

Hello,So if you live in the north-east of England you will be fully aware of the launch of not one but two NYX boots stalls. If you are a long time lover of the brand you will remember the small wall of the cosmetics that use to be in Next. It was a purchase of the HD Concealer which I've purchased online ever since. When I heard that they would be opening a stall I was too excited to have a try of some of the other products that they had to offer.Not only after they opened the Newcastle store, they announced that there would be a meet and great with two bloggers[...]
