EKD Turns Three

As I fumble through BlogSpot haphazardly trying to understand how to insert a picture, I can’t help but wonder who will actually read this website. Skimming through my camera roll, I search for a photo to head the post and end up going for a cliché picture I took whilst in Starbucks two mornings previous. I remember the buzz of anticipation I felt when I sent that first post live; it was poorly written and the accompanying image was poorly lit, but I had started EKD and that is when I experienced the thrill of creating and publishing my writing for the very first time. That was May 10th 2014. As EKD turns one year older, I got thinking about the last 3 and how emilykatedale.com has progressed. My namesake site is something I am truly proud of, I put my all into each and every post… My September Issue articles are the most challenging to compose, ‘Investing in Fashion?’ is my favourite to read and surprisingly, my most viewed post of all time and one that still …

#ChicVibesOnly

Last weekend was spent in Cambridge and London, wedding planning with my sister and picking up macarons from my favourite Parisian patisseries. Elle and I discussed my blog and neither of us could believe that it has only been two years since it all began. Something we both agreed on though, was how much we love EKD and the pride we share in what I’ve created. I feel like even though my style and aesthetic has evolved over the last two years, my fascination with elegance, fashion and beauty has only increased. Celebrating with gorgeous pieces from the SS16 Tom Ford Beauty collection and macarons from Pierre Hermé and Ladurée, I look forward to the future of EKD. Today is May 10th – Two years ago I began my .blogspot and fell in love with creating colourful and creative content. Between the move to WordPress, font changes and improved photography lighting, it’s still Emily living in Derbyshire and studying English, eager to become the next Carrie Bradshaw. Thank you for tuning in – I’m excited to create new content and share #ChicVibesOnly! …

A Year of EKD

As I sit in the drawing-room, instagramming and waiting for my headache to subside before returning to my creative writing assignment, I cant help but wonder if ‘May’ hates me. By May, I mean the month… Every year, from lets say the middle of April to the end of June, life always seems to go tits up! I am irrationally blaming May, and sticking to it. Perhaps, it’s because a few years ago during my fitness rampage, I posted a picture on instagram saying ‘MAY IS MY BITCH,’ all for fitness and training purposes, obviously. I regret it now, since my disrespect to said month seems to be coming back to slap me in the face, every. damn. year. I appreciate that I haven’t blogged in months, and my contribution to EKD has been inconsistent at best, however I am in my third year of university and it has been the biggest struggle, more in terms of time-consuming than anything and when I’m not working on essays or reading children’s books for my Lit module, …
