Back to reality

This past week has been a blessing. I got to spend it with some awesome people doing something absolutely amazing. We visited orphanages and children’s homes in Bosnia. I love giving back to the children because they don’t expect much, just love. I wish I could show you every single one of their beautiful faces but I’m not allowed to post any pictures of them. In the meantime, enjoy these pictures of the scenery and me and my friends.

This was a trip I’ll never forget.

Fun weekend

This weekend was a good one! Started by going to hang out with a bunch of people Friday night. Saturday I woke up at 6.40 AM. By 7.15 I was having my car washed and at 8 AM I had my yearly inspection. Then back home and did two loads of laundry and after that I met up with a friend for lunch. Took my grandparents to the airport after that. Had a quick coffee and then back home just in time to change for a charity party. Dressed up in a cute spring outfit only to arrive there and it’s pouring down. Thankfully I had a jacket in my car. Didn’t stay long at all. It was super boring. The band, consisting of one person sucked. He was more screaming than singing. The whole thing felt a bit off and weird. But, the money is going towards Bosnia and that’s good. I’m still glad I went and helped out a little. Came home and got ready for bed. Watched a movie and then slept. Yesterday (Sunday) I was working during the Elections, all day. Went to bed around 1.40 AM and woke up 7.20 this morning. Yeah, very productive weekend!

#prayforbosnia

Friends, followers and amazing people of the world. I ask you to please donate to the people of Bosnia. 20 years ago there was a war that tore my country apart and now this. This is the worst flooding in the last 100 years and people have lost everything. The worst part is that it doesn’t seem like the rain is gonna stop any time soon!
You can donate via Red Cross or find a local organization that is helping.
If you do donate please let me know by emailing me;
ellviisa@yahoo.com

Thank you!

Help Philippines

“The first look at the destruction left by Typhoon Haiyan is a shock – even for those used to working in disasters.”

I’m sure you’ve all heard about the typhoon that struck the Philippines last week. It’s devastating! Now I’m asking all of you to help in any way you can. There are many organisations helping but I’ve chosen to go through UNICEF. I’ve also donated though LINDEX. They have a campaign going on at the moment where you can choose to add 10 kronas (1.50 dollars) to your purchase and that money will go to a charity helping in the Philippines!
