She brought her digital daydreams to the first re-vamp of image.ie in 2013 and was like a proud mum at sports day when the site won Best Digital Product at the 2014 IMA?s. Ellie writes about beauty, as well as this funny old thing called life. She is remarkably fond of Breton tops, red lipstick and good gin and she swears she has a book in her.
