  • One Year in Recovery

    Saturday 27 May Yesterday it hit me: it’s been over a year since I began the ED recovery chapter of my life. After years of being influenced by diet culture and social media, I finally decided to break the mould and transform my life. It hasn’t been easy. There’s been a lot of bad days…

About Me

Hi! I’m Ellie, an avid writer and podcaster, interested in all things from culture and language, to fitness and food, journalling and self-care.

Studying – undergraduate at University of Warwick, England BA in Modern Languages and Linguistics. My favourite module is Sociolinguistics, which is what I want to go into in research after I graduate

Writing – much of my free time consists of me sitting in a café or at my desk with an oat milk latte and a cookie writing short stories or novels!

Health advocating for teen mental health and practising self care over the last few years stems from my own personal experiences with the matter. Exercise and focusing on health and self-gratitude are some of the main areas I talk about here on Pepetoe. After years of restricting food, I am now at the stage where I can rave about the pleasures of food freedom and all the yummy foods I “allow myself” to eat!

Travel – from city breaks in Europe to the turquoise, transparent seas in the East, and to the ski slopes in the highlands. My favourite place is Barcelona, from the culture to the architecture
