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[...]

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[...]

Adore Me │ Fall Love Book

Hey,So I'm back again with one of my all time favourite companies, Adore me. If you cast your mind back to last winter. I did a post called the 'The Nightwear Before Christmas', showing all my favourites from their latest collection that I would love to have owned along with all the things I love to do on the night before Christmas. This time I am back working with them, but on a fall inspiration board.Personally, I feel so much better heading out for the day with a matching set of underwear (even though nobody can see it) and some nice shade of lipstick to match[...]

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[...]

YO!SUSHI │ Opening Evening

So, When the YO!Sushi in Fenwicks Newcastle closed down last year to make way for the brand new food court, I was devastated. Going all of the way to the Metro Center to get my Sushi fill just wasn't the same. When I heard that they would be building a brand spanking new one under neither my place of work, I was beyond ecstatic. If that wasn't amazing enough, my boyfriend and I got asked to attend the opening night.When we arrived, not having attended many events as such as these in the past I was a bit like I don't know anyone here.... of course, this was all[...]

New York Fashion Week 2016 │ Photograph

Sadly, I am officially back from New York and reality is beginning to kick back in. I had the holiday of a lifetime and have come very close to some lovely people from my university course who I went there with. Before we get to this post I would just like to say there isn't any real in-depth writing I can do into every single day activity simply because I did way too much in the time that I was there but I will put all my video footage into a nice little youtube upload for you to check out later on this week. This was the first holiday I went on by myself without[...]

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[...]
