Goooooood morning beauty buddies…
It’s another teeth chatteringly fresh morning here in N. Ireland *hurry up summer* as I’m currently clutching a steaming mug of hot sweet tea, curled up in Confetti & Curves HQ, ready for a full day of writing! My previously organised little desk is now awash with highlighters, notes and mechanical pencils… however before I detach myself from my tea and commence in a stationary spring clean, I’m chuffed to bring you yet another fun filled Behind The Blog.
As always, if you’re new to Confetti & Curves (friendly wave) and not entirely sure what Behind The Blog is all about *click here* to bring yourself up to speed – you may even find yourself getting involved!
Today I’m super excited to be chatting with the lovely Elvisa! Hailing from Sweden, this fun loving gal keeps her blog buddies topped up with a digital dose of fashion, beauty, fun & lifestyle. If you haven’t already checked her out then do take a virtual trip over to Ellviisa to say a huge hello, but not before nestling back & learning more about the lady herself…
Ps: Check out her inspirational quote – I absolutely adore it.

What inspired you to start blogging?

Do you ever suffer from Blogger’s Block & if so how do you overcome it?
I do. I just give it time. I do this blog for fun and only write about what I feel like and when I feel like doing so. If I feel like taking a few days off, I do that.

I can’t pick just one but all my posts under the Sarajevo tag. http://ellviisa.com/?s=sarajevo
