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[...]

Real Talk | ELLEKATE

It's time for some real talk.It has come to my awareness, for some time now that I have been rather distant, from here (blogging), from my social life and from my work life.that's down to my mental health.A subject nobody seems to want to talk about, but after a conversation with a good friend today, I've realised it's important, to be honest with not only myself but the people I hold dearest.Though I could sit here all day and give you the long dramatic life story about how poor young Elle was left scared by a long spell of bullying and mental torture. However, y[...]

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[...]

Every year, the gala never fails to impress me but this year's fashion had me blown away.This gala had the dresses of tomorrow made for today, and it was hard to pick just a few of my favourites, however, like every year, there is some individuals who definitely missed the memo but each to their own.

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[...]
