Mouth of the Tyne Festival | Sam Fender | ELLEKATE

Happy Saturday! If you were not aware from my stupid amount of Instagram story posts, the other night we managed to go along to Mouth of the Tyne to see Sam Fender play the home stage - and my god was it one HELL of a night.  We arrived ready for the forecast of lightning storms and non-stop rain. Personally, I rocked up in a yellow fisherman's raincoat and stomping ground boots. Despite this we got nothing but glorious sunshine - leaving me sweating, ditching the jacket and spending the rest of the evening in my Snoop Dog t-shirt... Did manage to get our[...]

Something from IT | ELLEKATE

Autumn.Blissfully, my favorite time of the year, from the warming colours, wrapping yourself up in big warm blankets and going for long walks. There is just something about it! The other week, my girl Jess was home for a few days back from Leeds, and what would an occasion that we see each other be spent any better than going for a mini photoshoot. So that is exactly what we did! Back when I was down in Cornwall, was when I found this little jacket of mine from a small sailors shop. From the brand 'Mousqueton Bretagne', based in France. Not only does it look nic[...]

ZAAP Thai Food | Review | ELLEKATE

Thai'm for a new review!This week, We went over to one of the latest additions to the restaurant scene in Newcastle - Zaap Thai! Aesthetically you are transported to a Bangkok street food market, complete with glowing street signs hanging above you and even Tuk Tuks. Whilst we were having a glace over the menu, we decided to try out a couple of the cocktails which they had on offer and for us, it had to be 'Pucket on the Beach' simply for the amazing use of wordplay! But, I'm so glad this was the drink of choice because I think Leanne will agree these were fantast[...]

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[...]

Night at the Tipi │ Hadrian’s Tipi

Morning,A festive pop-up bar has arrived in Newcastle city centre for the Christmas period. Not going to lie, I'm a sucker for anything that's novelty and that exactly why I couldn't wait to head over and try the place out. Not seeing my collage girls in over a year was the perfect opportunity to head out for drinks and a catch up. We decided to make this quite an early night with it being a Friday, which now I am glad that we did as even for 5 the place was packed. After all its just a pop up. Luckily once we had gotten our drinks some seats came free around th[...]
