"Style is a way to say who you are without having to speak." - Rachel Zoe


I'm Ellie, a 21 year old living in Winchester, studying Psychology at the University of York. My life consists of juggling a social life, uni work, blogging and enough sleep. 

ellie etc is a personal style and lifestyle blog, sometimes with a bit of beauty, food and travel thrown in. 

Why "personal style" rather than "fashion"? If money was not object maybe it would be fashion. But money is an object, so a lot of the things I wear just express my personal style rather than the latest fashion trend. Then I thought why waste other photos gathering cyber-dust on my computer? Why not share my - sometimes slightly mundane - adventures? So that's where the lifestyle side of things came from.

I have big love of faux fur, leopard print and anything silver, I'm the least colourful dresser you'll ever meet, I drink too much tea, I talk too much and I have an serious addiction to internet shopping.

If you like bargain hunting, wishlistin', many many clothes, visiting new places and much more, you'll be right at home here.

Where to go from here? 

Check out the CATEGORIES tab for a slightly more organised stance.

Or why not head HOME for the most recent posts?

Sometimes I'm lucky enough to collaborate with amazing brands. If you're a brand looking for a collaboration head over to CONTACT/PR. If you're just curious of previous collaborations check out the COLLABORATIONS section of the CATEGORIES tab. 

Happy reading!
