Maxi Dress Styling + Back to ‘Normality’ | ELLE KATE

Right now nothings normal… or well at least not just yet. For about a month, I’ve been craving some sense of ‘normality’ even if it’s a new version of normal. Gosh, putting that down in writing does make me second guess myself. Anyways, I think one thing that would bring me a lot of comforts way back when I was shooting/creating blog content, what better way to celebrate that than to go back to where it all started with my homegirl Jess. Don’t worry; all her links are down at the bottom of this post, you’ll be wanting to check her work[...]

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[...]

Ultimate Packing Guide | ELLEKATE

Hey Guys, So in my previous post I mentioned that I would be doing a mini series for all you all about my holiday in Florida. Today I have the next post all here and gleaming for you all to read about... PACKING! The worlds most hated - but needed activity. I know that time I seriously struggled with packing,getting all the little bits and peices together ant just generally having a clue as to what on earth was going on. Being my first time going away long-haul and by myself (I mean I was with Dan but let's face it the planning and organising of this entire trip[...]

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[...]

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[...]
