Whippersnapper Magazine!

In my last post I think I mentioned a project I'm involved with, well that project is called Whippersnapper magazine!  It's a new online magazine set up by a few teenagers from all over the UK for other teenagers.  We write about anything - lifestyle, music, news, politics, sport, fashion and so much more.

We're launching Saturday 10th of November at 5pm, so make sure you check it out!

This is the website:

And also, here's the facebook event, so please click attending!

Here's a preview of the homepage, hopefully you'll want to check the rest out!

See you soon - Ella xxx

I didn't die

Hello again!
I'll admit I have been probably the worst blogger EVER over the last.... month?  Well whatever, it's been a fair while.  But I do have (what I hope are) some valid excuses; firstly, I've just started at college.  I'm taking four AS levels so there's quite a lot of work to do at home, so I don't have a huge amount of free time, especially while I'm also trying to fit synchro training/coaching in.  That's my second excuse.  This time is really really busy for synchro, as we have all the big competitions around this time of year, and as I swim in my own team and also coach a younger age group, it's pretty hectic!

I don't have anything fashiony for you today, but I did jazz up my bedroom a bit and I'm quite pleased with how it looks:

My bedroom is really really tiny, so making it interesting while keeping it neat and clutter-free is a bit of a challenge!  The wall is my favourite bit, it's a load of album covers, posters, adverts, photos I like/took, arty thing and more.  It looks really cool above my desk, and it makes the space less boring! ]

Also Man Yee gave me the cutest/creepiest bracelet ever, and I am literally in love with it!

In other news, I now have instagram and I would love it if you followed me on there!  My user name is 'ellajean', and I'll follow you back because I follow hardly anyone.

If you don't already follow me on twitter then click here to follow me!  I'm on twitter quite a bit, so if you want to know about my (boring) life, that's the best place to find me.

And one more shameless self promotion for my tumblr! 

I'm also involved in another blogging project with a lot of other bloggers which will hopefully be up and running soon, so I'll post that soon! 

I'll try and post more from now on, I know I've been a bit of a waste of space lately - sorry!

See you soon xxx

film pixie

I haven't blogged in a while, so sorry about that!  I just wanted to share with you some film photos I've taken from the film I just had developed, enjoy!

Some are from when I went to Paris all the way back in October, and others from a few weeks ago when my friends and I took a walk.  You might recognise my friend Man Yee from her blog mighty mannie!

If you want to put them on tumblr, or use them for anything you are welcome to do so, but please please please credit me since I took them! 

Much love, Ella xxx

I'm not entirely sure how this works, but I set up a bloglovin! So click here to follow me on bloglovin!  I'll follow everyone back, and I'd really appreciate it if you follow me - much love, Ella xxx

How much does your face cost?

I saw this on sprinkle of glitter and thought it might be fun (and interesting) to do!  Hopefully I won't be in for too much of a shock!  So without further ado, let's see how much my face costs!

Basically, I'm going to list all the products I use, then add the total up (and probably be embarrassed about it)

Skin care
Basic Nivea moisteriser - £1.40
Clean & Clear exfoliating daily wash - £3.20
Clean & Clear dual action moisteriser - £2.99
Boots Skin Clear spot gel - £5.10

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB cream - £7.99
Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection concealer - £3.99
Collection 2000 Cover-up Stick - £4.99
FACE TOTAL - £16.97

Topshop liquid eyeliner - £5.00
Maybelline Great Lash mascara - £4.99
17 Va va voom Mascara - £6.29
EYES TOTAL - £16.28

Vaseline Lip Therapy - £1.99
Vaseline Rosy Lips - £1.99
LIPS TOTAL - £3.98

TOTAL - £49.92

I'm actually really shocked!  I never really thought all the things I use on a daily basis would add up to almost fifty pounds!  That's actually pretty embarrassing, and compared to a lot of people, I don't even wear a lot of make up!

See you next time - Ella xxx

flatform craving

I'm pretty tall, so I don't really need any help from a pair of shoes when it comes to the height side of things, but lately I've been completely obsessed by flatforms.  I'm not entirely sure whether it's a sensible purchase for the likes of myself, already being taller then most of my friends, but I saw these:

£45 - Urban Outfitters

I became totally smitten, and I'm thinking they might be a pair of shoes I can put on to make an outfit more interesting, since I usually live in my Dr Marten boots or just flat pumps.  They're a little more edgy than I usually go for, so I think it'd be nice to have something a bit more exciting in my shoes collection!

Also, I'd just like to say thank you for all the lovely comments on my first post!  I followed everybody back and thanks for checking out my blog!

Much love, Ella xxx

Wishlist #1

This is my first ever proper post on this blog (eek)!  So for my first post, I thought I'd do a wishlist.

background from Cath Kidston

Dress - H&M (£6.49)
Shoes - Daisy Street Shoes (£20.99)
Nail Varnish - Topshop (£6.00)
Ring - Topshop (£8.50)
Shorts - Topshop (£32.00)

Here's just a few things that really catch my eye.  As you can probably tell from this, I wear a lot of black, mainly because I find it goes with a lot of different colours and styles, so it's really easy to wear.  I totally fell in love with the shoes!  They look pretty similar to these charlotte olympia flats, which are so beautiful, but quite a long way out of my budget!  I really love wearing rings, and I think the chimp ring is adorable.  The nail polish is also really cool, I love how it has such a mixture of colours.  

As for actually introducing my blog properly, I'm going to be fashion(ish) type posts, like OOTDs and things that catch my etc.

It'd be really lovely if you followed me, and I'll probably follow you back, since I hardly follow anyone at the moment!

See you next time - Ella xxx
