Today I have the next post all here and gleaming for you all to read about... PACKING! The worlds most hated - but needed activity. I know that time I seriously struggled with packing,getting all the little bits and peices together ant just generally having a clue as to what on earth was going on. Being my first time going away long-haul and by myself (I mean I was with Dan but let's face it the planning and organising of this entire trip[...]

Universal Orlando Photo Diary | ELLE KATE

WHATS IN MY BAG | ELLEKATE

Morning,So! Getting back into the blog posts for the summer. The kind folks over at Marc B the other week sent me my new favourite pieces of arm candy and I thought it would be a great opportunity to share what exactly it is that I carry around with me on a day to day basis.I have two purses. There is, however, a method to my madness, In the first bigger one which is a Marc Jacobs Zip Purse, I carry all the necessary and unnecessary cards from credit to promotional ones from the smoothie shop around the corner. In the second I have my contactless cards so I don't[...]

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[...]

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[...]

Everyday Make-up Tutorial │ Perfectionist

Hi Guys, Today I had planned to write up a post on my everyday beauty routine, however this didn't exactly go to plan. You see I am aware that this blog is becoming a more popular thing I've starting becoming more of a well perfectionist. Is this a bad thing? personally I don't, I see it as I am now setting higher boundaries for the standard of my work. I have always been somebody who sets themselves too much work for one project and then expects it all to be of the highest quality, has it been hard yeah. I think I have a thing as funny as it sounds with how I d[...]

Come chill with me.

I think everybody has those months when everything is just go go go! For me that has been this month, if I haven't been working I have been at uni or finishing off deadlines. Probably should be doing that right now however I need some chill time which everybody needs from time to time and I thought I would share how I manage to calm myself down after a long day. I normally start with a little workout, because thought you may not think it working out can help you just release stress, I always feel amazing afterwards. I shall either go to my local gym for a few hou[...]

Edinburgh Adventures

Sunday was a long day coming, For Jacks birthday present I thought it would be nice to take him to the land of the Scotts, I got so excited I ended up blurting it out to him well before I should have... I had got way to excited, sleeping the night before was impossible even thought we had to be up at 6.45! It was a jam packed day of shopping through Princes St., hikes up to the castle, strolls down the royal mile, Derby day blow outs, peaceful pandas and finally hard rock pig outs. But for this blog I just want to let the pictures tell stories.[...]
