My name's Ellie but most people call me Elle and I started this little corner of the internet aged 19. I was working in TV as a production runner on The X-Factor and was looking for a little place to
ramble on about the shit that the people around me couldn't be arsed to listen to express my creativity and thoughts, and immerse myself in a community that I had been obsessed with for many years before I ever started typing away my own thoughts.
During the last 3 and a half years of blogging, I've gone from being the TV Producer that had in her time worked on The X-Factor, BGT, The Apprentice, TOWIE - I know, all the classy ones [insert monkey covering eyes emoji here] - who blogged when she got a spare second, to a full time blogger constantly in and out of meetings and lucky enough to work with some of the biggest brands in the world, that also used to deal with Arg and Diags running off and generally being a pain in arse. I have no idea how my blog went from having about 5 readers per day (lols, thanks for refreshing the page Mum) but I am so beyond grateful that I get to wake up and do what I love the most every single day.
My circumstances may have changed since I started this blog, but The Elle Next Door - is it just me that feels like a total tit referring to their blog in the third sense? - really hasn't. Well, apart from no longer shooting on a blackberry and favouring a Canon 7d - stolen from the fiance, obvs - instead. On this blog, you will continue to find Fashion/Personal style, Beauty, Lifestyle, Travel and Food posts, in particular, great Gluten Free finds for Coeliacs
So, does that sound like something you'd be interested in? It does? Great stuff... Well head over to my blog and continue to join me on this crazy journey. I look forward to taking you along with me!
