Welcome back!

Hello and welcome back to a new and improved Elvisa and http://www.ellviisa.com!

It’s time for me to get back into this world and I hope you tag along with me on the journey of a new job, new adventures and a new year…



Balmain Hair

I’m the type of person who doesn’t spend a lot of time on my hair on an everyday basis. I mean I do wash it every other day, because it gets greasy but as far as styling goes, I can’t be bothered to do something new every morning before work. Therefore I usually have it down in it’s natural state or put it up in a pony tale.

My hair is also a bit damaged and get very frizzy, which I can’t stand. The only way, like for so many other people, to get rid of the frizz is to blow dry it. Well, imagine what washing and blow drying your hair every other day does to it. Then there is also the styling with a variety of hot tools at times.

Because of all this I decided to at last take care of my hair by using good products. I decided on Balmain Haircare and I’ve now been using it for a few weeks. I bought the travel sizes to try it out and so far so good.

I put in the elixir while my hair is still damp and either let it dry naturally or I blow dry it. This unfortunately makes my hair look a bit flat and dull. And I want volume, lots of it. This is where the Salt texturizing spray comes in. A little bit of this spray goes a long way and it gives the hair a lot of volume. The hairspray is the key ingredient to keep my hair looking good for the day!




For the love of Tea

Last week I raved to you about my love for Rituals and their products. Well, one thing I totally forgot to mention was their tea. Yes, they even have tea! This tea lover was super excited when she found out. The only one I’ve tried so far is the Hammam Mint tea, part of The Ritual of Hammam collection and I have to admit, I’m obsessed. I’m on my second box already!

This is a green tea with 100% natural ingredients, containing spearmint and peppermint.

This is how The Ritual of Hammam is described by Rituals;

‘The Hammam is one of the oldest cleansing traditions in the world. This steam bath experience from the East purifies both body and soul. This ancient custom inspired us to create a modern Hammam collection for your home. Enriched with revitalizing Rosemary and Eucalyptus, the products cleanse, soften, and nourish the skin. Close your eyes and feel the warmth of your own personal wellness ceremony.’

I highly recommend this tea!

The Ultimate Shoedrobe

Like many other girls out there I have way to many pairs of shoes and most of them I don’t even wear. This got me thinking. If I was to only have shoes I would wear throughout the year, which ones would make the list. I’ve narrowed it down to eight, yes EIGHT, styles and you can read all about them below…

2016 in Rewind

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…

Burgundy love

Everyone that knows me knows of my love for burgundy, especially in the fall/winter time…

I was just reminded over the weekend of how much I love this jacket from H&M after wearing it for the first time in weeks.

What’s your favorite color for this time of the year?
