Hello, I know it’s been a while but I’m back. I want to focus on the blog much more in 2017 and I know I’ll have more time to do so.
This time I’m here to give you a look back on my year, this is my 2016 in rewind. I’ve chosen 7 highlight from this year to sum it up. Why seven? Well, it’s just my favorite/lucky number. And this is in no particular order…
Hope you’ve all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year and that you are well rested. Now, it’s time to get it!
Lets make 2016 the best year of your life. That is my plan!
I plan on doing all the things that make me happy and that I WANT this year, no matter what other people think.
I wanna work hard on building this ellviisa.com brand and also bettering my self and my life from every aspect.
I also have a lot of exiting things to look forward this year one of them is being a maid of honor at my best friends wedding this summer. I can’t wait!!! I wanna be there every step of the way, the planning has already started and the next part is a trip to Bosnia to see the wedding venue in Mostar and also help her pick her wedding dress. So exciting! I’ve never been the girl to dream about a wedding for myself but I still find this very exciting!
2 0 1 6, I’m gonna rock you!
What are some of the things you are looking forward to this year? Let me know, link your blog below, so I can check it out!
Last weekend I got to go away with my sister and one of our best friends. We took a cruise over to Finland. Around 10 AM on Saturday morning we arrived in the port of Helsinki and got to spend the day there.
It’s been a while since I got to spend some quality time with these ladies and I loved every second of it.
I texted my mom and dad late Friday afternoon about them coming to visit me and they did. We spent a great evening together friday and Saturday we went shopping and to visit the grandparents.
Today I woke up before 7AM to get ready for a fun filled day in the swedish capital, Stockholm. A mere 1 h and 20 minutes later Dina and I were arriving at the station.
After a lunch meeting we went to a APU Network association dinner celebrating the Bosnian Independence Day. Because Dina is traveling tomorrow and I have a week full of meetings we had to get on a train back home at 7.30. The evening was a great success though! We got to meet some very successful and interesting people. Aida Hadžialić being on of them. She is a Swedish politician and the Minister of Education. At 28 she is the youngest minister Swedish history and she just happenes to be Bosnian aswell.
Today has been a super busy day! Started my work day before 7AM and left the office around 6PM. Just in time to go home and change before a special screening of The Boy Next Door. It wasn’t the best movie I’ve seen, actually it was only ok.
After the movies I got my hair done as I’m traveling in a few days and I wanted fresh color. Still a red head!
Since coming home I’ve been packing the makeup I’m bringing with me and some clothes. Nowhere near to being done anytime soon! I mean I have to pack tomorrow so it might be a late night…
Once again I’d like to thank everyone for the flowers, cards, FB messages, phone calls, SMS messages, blog comments, presents and for being there. You’ve all made my birthday super special and given me an amazing start to the new year.
Your love means everything to me.
I have to respect people’s privacy but here some pictures of the people who I know won’t mind.
Here is one pic from the party, the only one posted on Facebook by Dina. I was so busy being the host I didn’t have time to snap pictures or selfies. I can’t even believe I don’t have one single selfie from the party. That’s crazy! But, I do have a bunch of professional pictures that I’m going through at the moment!
After last weekend and the week I had I was really looking forward to the weekend. One of my childhood best friends Azerina was coming to see me and Saturday couldn’t come fast enough. She only lives an hour and 20 minutes away but life gets in the way a lot of the times and we don’t see each other as much as we’d like. I picked her up at the train station and we went to pick up lunch, then went back to my place where we chilled until it was time to go see Ami. While there we had some pancakes and hung out being girls and helping each other get ready. We had dinner reservations at Tabazco at 7.45 and stayed there until almost 11PM. Such fun times.
Azerina left around 1PM. I went back home and did the dishes before heading to go see my friend Nejra. But before I met up with her I did a little bit of birthday party supplies shopping. I think I’m almost done. There’s not much left. The menu is done as well and I know what the tables will look like. My sister is doing the cake, I don’t know what it will look like but she promised to stick to the colors I’ve chosen.
Met up with Nejra and we walked around the Christmas market for a while and then sat down for a carrot cake and a chai latte. We sat in a corner on the second floor and didn’t even notice we were alone. All of a sudden this girl who works there comes over to tell us they closed almost 10 minutes ago. We headed towards the car and ended up sitting in Nejras car for another hour. I guess we had a lot of things to catch up on.
The rest of the evening was all about Chicago PD. Such a great show!
Here are some pictures I snapped this weekend (in no special order)
