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[...]

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[...]

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[...]

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.

Regardless, wether you live away from you love or if you are just wanting some ideas to help with keeping the relationship interesting, then I have been thinking about some ideas which you can try out.Not so long ago I would sit and search through article upon article on Pinterest, trying to find ideas of what would be a nice idea for the day / nig[...]

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[...]

NYX Beauty Haul │ Blogger Meet Up

Hello,So if you live in the north-east of England you will be fully aware of the launch of not one but two NYX boots stalls.

Seaside walks │ Photography

Slightly different post today, I've been trying to get back into the swing of everything over these past few week but honestly I'm grouchy and tired, not only that but I haven't been well for a few months now, I'm sick of it and felt like the best answer to the situation would be some fresh air and a brisk walk. Also, I decided to bring my trusty camera along for the ride resulting in these. Hope you enjoy x[...]
