Universal Orlando Photo Diary | ELLE KATE

heeeellooo!Happy Monday everyone, it has been another moment. I am currently speaking to you all from an A&E waiting room feeling a wee bit worse for wear. But if you follow me on social media, I am sure you will all be aware - last week Dan and I went to Universal Orlando for a holiday of a lifetime. As much as I would like to fill you all in with a big post full of tips and tricks, I am currently lying in bed in quite a bit of pain, don't worry that post will be coming. Rather than waiting around I though that today I would give you all a photo diary of ever[...]

Center Parcs | Elle Travels | ELLEKATE

Have you ever just needed a weekend away?A few weeks back, that's exactly what I was in need of. After a week of being at University and work, Dan and I were both given the weekend off. I cannot even remember how we came around to the final decision to book Center Parcs, however, I do recall going to the page and finding out about their Lakeside Apartments being exactly what we needed for a relaxed weekend away.When I was younger, a trip to Center Parcs, was our annual family get together. A family tradition around Easter time. One year, we had one of the biggest[...]

Beast From The East | ELLEKATE

Brrr, Well! It has been a cold one up north this past week, in fact, I cannot recall seeing that much snowfall since I was about 10. Being the child that I am, I found it nothing but nostalgic. It brought back memories from the first smartphone I ever had back in the day, an HTC Wildfire, which I would sit and stare at the tiny screen begging for the weather forecast to change to deep snow so that the school would close and call it a snow day. So sitting in the house playing stupid amounts of Xbox, drinking tea and watching whatever movie that was on the TV was w[...]

Time To Close This Chapter | ELLEKATE

It began with dreams, high hopes.Daily I would be reminding myself that I should allow to take each day as it comes, not just overthinking what had already came to be. But, as the days would go by for some bizarre reason I found it getting worse. Come summer I thought I had hit a high, but let's just say I may as well had taken one step forward and ten back.As much as I would love to sit here, getting into full depth over how my life came to end me deciding not to celebrate the ending of 2017; but that's not something I don't think I could be emotionally ready to[...]

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[...]

A London Montage │ ELLEKATE

Evening, I returned home from London early yesterday morning, after one of the most spectacular times away I wanted to get working on some of the footage I took straight away. I have uploaded a little youtube video for my channel which I shall link below so you can all check it out. It defiantly not my finest, I've put that down to the fact I was more concerned with making the most of my trip and enjoying the two little days we had there before returning back to work a few hours after I got off the bus ! Any ways, I would still love to hear some feedback off you a[...]

Autumnal Love │ ELLEKATE

Just around the corner lies my favourite season of the year. Autumn.I cannot put a finger on to why this is my favourite time of the year, I've never been a fan of the cold but the nostalgia of sitting, looking out the window covered in a wool blanket clasping onto a hot chocolate (loaded with marshmallows) there is just something about it.So since the season is just around the bend, and this British summer has been possibly the worst weather of all. I thought I'd write a little list of why I love the season, I'm currently writing a project around it also so I[...]

Disneyland Paris │ ELLEKATE

Good Morning,So like I mentioned in my last blog post, and with most of you seeing on my social media pages. The other week I and my good friend Beth got a tad sick of the crappy British summer which we have been having (Until today of course) so we decide we would have a snoop and find out if there was any good last minute holiday offers around. Just by chance, I found possibly the best deal I have ever seen for  Disneyland Paris, staying just off site, breakfast included and park tickets for a reasonable price. So as you do we booked to leave in two weeks for a[...]
