Freshly Cosmetics Product Review

Hey, A few weeks ago I was approached by the wonderful folks at Freshly Cosmetics, newly launched in the UK they are a big deal back in their home of Spain. So before I even begin I would like to say a big thank you to them for considering to collaborate with me on this post and to kindly gift me some products to give a whirl.   Let’s get straight into it then. I am going to start with giving out a bit of a background into the company – not because I have to. I WANT TO. I mean, come on this company are doing incredible things, why I hear you ask? B[...]

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[...]

Boiler-suit Brilliance | ELLEKATE

Morning guys! Today we are talking about a fairly old trend now as far as trends go, and we are talking about Boiler-suits. I have been following items which relate to this trend for a while on many fast fashion pages especially just getting an idea of what’s really cracking with this style. However, as much as I personally loved it, I could never find a one which was well flattering for my figure. If you didn’t also know I currently work in Urban Outfitters, and we got a delivery of these silky dreams in just over a month ago and I. AM. OBSESSED. Here it is,[...]

Floral Love | Spring Style | ELLEKATE

As requested, back today with another style post for you all!We all are officially ready for the summer following the past few days of total sunshine, sweaters and boots are back in the cupboard (for at least a couple days) and t-shirts and skirts are well and truly out and about. Its fair to say there are a couple of rather unusual trends which have been showing up at the moment, but my favourite has to be this modern romance. Full of florals, lighter colours and adding your own personal flair to the look. I think the best way to represent this trend would be bol[...]

Lady In Red | Spring Style | ELLEKATE

Happy Sunday, Whilst I was uploading some things to Instagram the other day, it got me thinking about how it has been far too long since I did a style post on the blog. As a matter of fact, I don’t believe I’ve ever uploaded a proper style post before. Strange since its one of my favourite things to talk about. I have been obsessing over co-ord outfits for a long time, just never seeming to find something that I would be able to pull off personally. However, one of this season’s hottest styles just so happens to be my dream co-ord creation. Double Denim. O[...]

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[...]

Happy Tuesday,Hope you all had a great weekend? On Friday, I went down to London to attend the Next Blogger Network Event. Personally, this was my first ever blogging event, I've always wanted to push myself outside of my own comfort zone and officially attend one of these! So I finally did it, I got a train ticket, headed down to London and I'm super glad that I did.Upon arriving at the Ace Hotel room 100 I was instantly just in love with the whole aesthetic to the place, I would highly recommend viewing it if you are wanting to host your own event. Being the fir[...]

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[...]
