Yellow, my love!

I’ve been looking for the perfect yellow blazer for a while and I had almost lost hope of finding one, until I randomly one day saw one through a store window in Sarajevo. I walked straight to it and grabbed on, which happened to be in a size perfect for me.

I tend to wear black a lot, it’s like my happy color, and it isn’t to make me look skinny, I just love it. I guess because it’s so easy to match with everything else that I focus more on, like colorful bags.

I couldn’t find the exact same blazer/jacket but I found a really pretty one in the same color from a store I won’t even mention because the sizing was freakin’ ridiculous.

In love with Hallhuber

While at the airport in Munich, during a delay, I stumbled across Hallhuber, a random store I’m now in love with. After browsing for a while and being helped by an amazing shop assistant I walked out of there with not one, but two new bags. They were both on sale, for a great price, I just couldn’t leave them.

I originally walked in because of a straw beach bag but when saw this clutch I changed my mind.

Granted, I still want the beach bag and I might get it but since I had already gotten a few new bags while on vacation I opted for the two smaller ones. ( I’ll show you the other one in a separate post))

Right now there is an amazing sale going on (and I want everything) but unfortunately they don’t deliver to Sweden. I might just have it sent to a family member or a friend in one of the counties they do deliver too and have them forward the package to me…

We’ll see!

This love affair continues…

NYX : Sold Out

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.

It’s 2 0 1 6

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!

Primark beauty

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?

 

Max Faxtor lip liner

I usually only post about products I actually like and would recommend for you. But, this time I have to warn you about a product I was really excited about. It’s a Max Factor Colour Elixir Lip Liner. I got it while I was away because I had forgotten my favorite lip liner, a Rimmel one that is now discontinued. I was actually looking for a similar one color-wise and this was the closest one to it, that’s why I got it. I was hoping it would be a good alternative to my Rimmel lip liner.

Oh boy was I disappointed. First, the tip broke the first time I was applying it and then, I couldn’t sharpen it. In the end I was able to do so but the liner itself keeps breaking. I think the reason for that it that it feels very dry. Also, the color was much more an orange tone than pink. It looks like it might be a nude pink color that matches the skin but I couldn’t really match it to my skin at all, even if i rubbed it a little.

So, this i a product that really isn’t worth getting. Spend your money on something else.

Has anyone of you tried it, what do you think?

D for design

Of course we did a bit of shopping while away. I picked up a beautiful muovo pouch.

I also picked up a Dior liner, that I’m loving after only using it for a few days.

A bit of a splurge on the cruise was this Swarovski pen,that I picked up after a late night trip tp the tax free store after a few glasses of wine.

Wearing dresses!

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)!

Love H&M

These last few years H&M has had some amazing bags in their collections and this year is no exception. I came across a post on Instagram while searching for a burgundy bag for fall of a bag from H&M and I fell in love. It’s the perfect sized bag for me and exactly what I love. I had to get it even though I really don’t need it as I was gifted three bags this summer.

But just look at it, isn’t it amazing?

I know it’s gonna be a favorite this fall for me…
