If you love lifestyle, food inspo and a little bit of travel, you’re in the right place!
Launched in May 2018, ellelouise.co.uk came to life as a creative space for me, Elle, to write about primarily travel, with a side order of food and lifestyle.
September 2019 was supposed to see me embark on a round the world trip with my partner, though after a break up, I will instead be studying my Masters in The Psychology of Health and Wellbeing.
The dream is still to travel the world – but who’s isn’t these days?
Who Am I?
I was a teaching assistant, and I LOVED my job! I worked with 60 children, Monday-Friday, so believe me when I say it was tiring! Armed with my degree in Psychology with Counselling, I knew I would end up working in education! In fact, my mother and grandma are/were teachers their whole lives, and they told me I would be when I grew up. However, wanting to prove them wrong and break the mould, I took a degree in Psychology with Counselling, and guess which sub-section of my degree was my favourite…? Yep, you guessed it, Educational Psychology. So here I am, going back to University with the hope of applying for my PhD to start in 2020.
How I first realised I wanted to Travel!
The first big holiday I remember going on was over to Ireland, my step-dad (who I call Dad as he’s been my father figure for about a gazillion years) had family over there. We didn’t even fly, we drove the long 4 hours to the ferry port, got to stretch our legs on the ferry and then had a long 4 hour drive down to Clonakilty, in County Cork, to see my Auntie and Cousins. That’s the first time I remember feeling the joy of being truly free, as an 8 year old driving in a car looking at the beautiful scenery. (I later got stuck in quick sand – but that’s not the point.)
