The Powders and Seeds Filling our Instagrams: Health Benefits and How to Use them.

The rise of the Acai bowl is here. Long gone are the days where we would start our day with a bowl of Weetabix topped with a sprinkling (coating) of sugar and we felt confident that we had started the day in a substantial way. Instead, open Instagram or YouTube and suddenly powders and seeds … More The Powders and Seeds Filling our Instagrams: Health Benefits and How to Use them.

Kate Elise vs The World, Part 5: Pants down, I’m the loser

Moving to Madrid has meant that my summer started way back in March and it’s just got hotter and hotter ever since. My nose is constantly red, but I’m okay with that because it’s a nice rosy pink that tells everybody I’ve been frolicking in the sun rather than the blueish red that accompanies me throughout winter and makes … More Kate Elise vs The World, Part 5: Pants down, I’m the loser

Kate Elise vs The World, Part 4: Apparently, I’m Spain’s newest rising tennis star.

Before I moved out to Spain I knew my life would be a little bit different to back in good old Blighty. I decided I was okay with having to include an allowance for sun cream in my budget (lol I do not budget I should budget) and I was very ready to be socially … More Kate Elise vs The World, Part 4: Apparently, I’m Spain’s newest rising tennis star.

Kate Elise vs The World, Part 2: When Photo Booth fights back

I want you to do something for me. Close your eyes and think back to 2010. Cheryl Cole and Liam Payne were no more than judge and act on the X Factor (how times have Ch-ayne-ged, see what I did there) and Apple’s Photo Booth was at the height of its game. Back before we had the use … More Kate Elise vs The World, Part 2: When Photo Booth fights back

Kate Elise vs The World, Part 1: A Magnum and an iceberg lettuce.

My father’s favourite saying (apart from “Don’t tell your mother but I’ve eaten the last slice of cheesecake again”) is “Kate, step outside your comfort zone”.  I know we’ve all heard the phrase countless times before and it is more than a bit cliché, but each time I’ve heard my dad’s voice floating through my mind encouraging me to … More Kate Elise vs The World, Part 1: A Magnum and an iceberg lettuce.

Top 10 Healthy Hotspots in Madrid

  I have lived in Madrid for almost 7 months now and I have tapas coming out of my ears. Don’t get me wrong, I love feasting over tortilla and patatas bravas washed down with 2€ wine that’ll certainly give Blossom Hill a run for its money. But sometimes all that oil can get a bit much and all I really want is a lettuce leaf. Luckily Madrid, … More Top 10 Healthy Hotspots in Madrid

4 Men and a Girl

Today I was told I had balls and it felt good. I know I have balls, something I’ve expressed in a few of my latest posts; I’m only 20 years old and living in a huge, new city that communicates in a language that isn’t my own. What I’ve yet to write about, however, is … More 4 Men and a Girl

10 things I learnt during my first week in Madrid

Did you know I’ve moved to Madrid? It’s officially my one-week anniversary in my new country and it’s been a very strange week. Mostly I’ve been travelling across a pretty calm sea with only a few waves rocking the boat every now and again but I’m learning how to balance even better with each one … More 10 things I learnt during my first week in Madrid
