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…
In Sweden, where I live, we don’t have the makeup brand Essence! So, whenever I travel in Europe I make sure to pick up a few things to try!
While I was away just a few weeks ago I stopped by the Essence stand with my list of things people have recommended online or to me personally but I only found a few things. Most of it was sold out.
Hello my faves!
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!
Most of you know by now that Primark has it’s own range of beauty products. And while I was in London I picked up a few pieces to try. Especially because I had read that they were good.
Among other things I got this 8 HOUR DEEP HYDRATING CREAM with argan oil. And let me tell you, it’s really good. Or should I say, was really good because I’ve run out of it. In the winter time I get dry patches, especially my cheeks and putting this cream on before going to bed every night has really helped. I usually use a Nivea face cream that I love but this Primark one, considering the price, was pretty good too.
I know people always say if the price is high the quality is better and I just want to point out that that isn’t always the case.
Do you have any budget tips? What is something I need to try?
I am so sick and tired of skinny girls saying stuff about curvy women. Cheryl who used to be in this UK girl group called Girls Aloud said this after being criticized for being ‘too skinny’ :
‘It’s crazy double standards. You’d never be allowed to say to somebody, “Oh, you look a bit fat.” And being overweight is unhealthy – it’s actually a bad message to tell someone who is obese that they look “curvy” or “great”,’ she points out. ‘But you know what? After this length of time, there’s nothing I can hear about myself that I haven’t already heard.’
Sure, she’s allowed to think this and even say it. BUT, I hardly believe a curvy girl called her ‘too skinny’ or anything along those lines. What I’m trying to say is just because someone called you something you didn’t like you don’t have to twist it and turn it around on other people.
You found it hurtful, so why be hurtful to someone else.
I’m literally sick and tired of the body issues people have. Let people be the way they are, no shape is better than the other. And being called skinny doesn’t give you the right to call out fat people just as it doesn’t give fat people the right to say anything to skinny people.
Let us all live and be happy with the way we look, there is already enough hate in the world. Why add to it???
Love everybody, start with yourself first!!!
Those of you that know me know I don’t wear dresses a lot. Well, at least I didn’t before. This last year I’ve been wearing dresses and skirts more and more. And I actually feel comfortable in them whereas before I didn’t. I hated going to weddings because that required me to wear a dress. And now, I’m already looking for a dress to wear to my best friends wedding next wear. I know the color and the style I want.
Here are two outfits I wore in the last few weeks.
This leopard dress is from H&M, I got it just a few weeks ago. You might still find it in your local store although I didn’t find it online.
Here I’m wearing a New Look dress that you can find in the sale HERE . It’s only 7,20 Euros, a total bargain! With it I’m wearing Zizzi tights and Primark wedge boots.
New Look has an amazing SALE going on overall, you have to check it out!
Happy shopping ladies (and gents)!
I know I said I was coming back with a bang and I intended to but life got in the way. I was involved in a car accident a few weeks ago, thankfully I’m ok but it has made me think, about a lot of stuff. I’m not gonna go into it more than to say I’m reevaluating a lot of things.
But, the blog is only gonna get bigger and better, just wait for it and have some patience.
Here we go!

As a plus size girl, sometimes it’s a struggle to find fashionable clothes in my size. These last few year the market has changed a lot, for the better. Some stores have plus size sections but then there are also stores with plus sizes only.
