This Monday I’m featuring dear blogger and friend Ella May Garrett. Do you like Mondays, dear Ella? I bet you do, just like everyone.

Do you know Ella?

First of all, I need to say I feel in love with her name as soon as I met her. Ella May might be the cutest, girliest, classiest, most princess like name ever. I would name one of my future girls Ella or May or Ella May in a heartbeat.

Secondly, I mean, this girl named her blog after herself. That’s brilliant. What’s your blog name? Ella May Garrett. She’s like Madonna but with three names.

Thirdly, this girl is absolutely gorgeous. There’s a photo of her that reminds me so much of the girl in my Syoss shampoo bottle, with her long, silky beautiful hair.

20 points if you go over to herย Instagramย and find out which photo I’m talking about.

(Not you, Ella, contest is not open to you)

So, have I made her blush enough? I can’t look at a beautiful woman and not tell her so. It’s my girls having girls backs rule number 1.

Next, we should all look at her header image. Very simple, classy and so beautiful. Who needs more than that? I love it.


She has recently reached 800 followers!! Congratulations, Ella. It’s no surprise for me that 1000 is so close for her, her blog is really good.


She writes about a variety of topics and there’s something for everyone. She’s 20 and she’s a student. She studies English Literature and Philosophy. I’m an English lit girl, so we definitely have something in common. She’s also a cat lady. Yep, she has 3 cats! She’s the sweetest person and she writes beautifully. She has just written an amazing, thought-provoking post for my blog, where she talks about how much of a struggle it is for us women to handle clothes sizes and how that might affect our self-esteem and mood, if we let it.

I’m sorry I’m linking up to my blog, but I think you should read her post. Ella, I would love if you would re-blog this post because it’s just so well-written and it’s true and familiar for so many of us.

Guest Post Sunday – “Clothes Sizes” by Ella May Garrett

As a student, she has written this amazing series called “The Student Diaries” where she tells us how to or how she handles different situations a student might come across. There’s three parts to the series and I do hope she keeps this up and writes about her experiences as a student and shares more tips with us.

How To Handle A Bad Mark | The Student Diaries #2

How To Revise For Exams | The Student Diaries #3

Ella was diagnosed with depression last year and this is something I can relate to, so I couldn’t do this post without sharing her most recent update.

My Mental Health Update


If you would like to get to know her better (and you definitely should) there’s a Q&A where she discusses different topics.

My First Q&A Part I – University and Travel

My First Q&A Part II – Ambitions, University and Blogging

Before I finish, I would like to leave you with my personal favorite posts:

She does have great taste, just look at it:


A Day In The Life

Because you know how much I love this type of post and can’t get enough of knowing what my friends are up to. I’m just nosy, can’t help it.

There so much more I could say about Ella, but I think it’s better if you go over to her blog, check her posts, and see for yourself how wonderful she is.

Dear Ella,

I really hope you like this post and that it’s a good enough reflection of the smart, beautiful and kind person you are. I’m really happy to have met you and to be able to follow your life journey through your amazing blog. Lots of love and a big hug.
