I'm Ellie. I am a Fashion Journalism student at the London College of Fashion. I live in London, but I'm from the Oxfordshire countryside. I am 19 years old, and live with two friends. My partner Alex and I have been together 5 years, and he is a training architect.

After studying art and design at GCSE, and gaining a double award A grade I found my love for fashion. For me, how the clothes worked on the body and how they were wearable outweighed my design talent, and so I began to explore journalism. I studied English Language, Photography and Media Studies at A-Level, which provided me with excellent knowledge and skills for a course in journalism.

I have always enjoyed writing, and the written word is the strongest method of communication in my eyes. It takes much less skill to create a video than it does a well written article. That said, I have thoroughly enjoyed blogging with words, and vlogging with my camera for nearly two years and truly love doing both. 

My aim in five years is to be a beauty contributor/writer at Elle Magazine. I have become passionate about beauty since starting to watch Youtube beauty gurus at uni last year. I began to pick up tips on application, brand hunting and experimenting with products. I became hooked. I now practice as a beauty journalist for www.ana-rchy.co.uk, and work independently for this blog too. 

Any opinions or comments I express are completely my own. I will never claim that I love a product if I hate it. Although I am sent products to test, I never allow that to affect my opinions or how I talk about them.

Thanks for reading!
