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[...]

90 Days to a Better Me? | Day 1 of 90

A few weeks ago, I posted online that I'd begun a personal self-journey to get into better shape and health. Even though I would say right now, I'm proudly heading in the right direction. Since starting I've come to the realisation, by giving in on myself I'd gained weight but also lost touch with this blog which is something I am immensely proud of a once LOVED today. Recently, a blogger called Cassey Ho otherwise known as Blogilates has gone through a slightly similar venture as my own. A wish to change her reflection on her current outlook on life. Going on a[...]

Disney Planning | Disney Series | ELLEKATE

Happy Friday!If you saw a while ago, just before my birthday, my wonderful Mum surprised me and my sister with a trip to Disneyland Paris at the end of this year for Halloween! Something which I have wanted to do for as long as I can remember.Since I am on a personal countdown to when we jet off to Paris, I thought I would start by making a mini-series all about planning ahead for the big trip (even if it's over half a year away). Personally, I have been to Disneyland Paris many a time now, so do have a fair bit of knowledge about what the parks have to offer, in[...]

Heidi & Co | Libby May Stars Necklace | ELLE KATE

Jewellery, Precious meaningful items that you wear upon your body for the whole world to see. Sometimes they have deep connections to who you are, other times they are simply just a fashion statement you have to spice up your wardrobe. For me, I am both. Sometimes you'll find me sporting a pair of huge golden heart hoops. But 9/10 ill be wearing my rings. Each have a deep connection to myself, from close friends and family member as gifts. A lot of my close contacts know just how much these mean to me. One example just the other week, (rather intoxicated) I had my[...]

However, y[...]

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[...]
