Take a Walk

I'm a photography student in my first year of college, so this requires me to go out and take a lot of photos.  Today I went for a walk with some friends and I thought I'd share some pictures with you all!

I was very proud of myself for mastering the art of bubble gum!

I don't really have a huge amount to say apart from that I have too much college work and I've been drinking too much tea over the past few weeks.
I hope you enjoy this small selection of photos.
Have a lovely week - Ella xxx

Still alive....

Well it's certainly been a while since we last had a chat - my last post was in November..... oops!  I've decided to try and come back to blogging and actually post more than once every four months.  I'll be surprised if anyone actually reads this, but if you are, thank you for sticking with me; I appreciate it lots and lots!

When I started this blog, I had intended it to be a fahion(ish) blog, but me getting dressed consists of me rolling out of bed and doing a lucky dip into my wardrobe, so this definitely isn't a fashion blog anymore.  That's mainly because I'm a lazy skank. Sorry, not sorry.

Not a huge amount has changed since I last posted; I'm still at college, just about coping.  It wouldn't be so bad if I didn't insist on leaving all the work till the very last minute, yet I never learn.

We just had half term break, which was great, because when I am ever going to complain about a week off college?  My boyfriend came down to visit for a few days, which was lovely, and the weather was pretty good, so we went out a fair bit - here are some photos I took:

These are from when we went to the harbour

There are from when we went up the tower

And here's a lame webcam photo thrown in for good measure

Recently I've been doodling a lot - I think this might be something I've taken up to distract myself from the massive pile of college work I should be doing....  but I really really love using Berol fine liners, they are so nice to draw with!  It's also given me an excuse to use a really nice notebook I got for my birthday.  So I might be really behind with all my academic stuff, but at least I have a book with loads of cute drawings in!

I should probably get going now, because the pile of work that needs to be done isn't going to go away until I actually do it (or burn it, but that's not going to get me anywhere)...  

Thanks for sticking with me - Ella xxx

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
