Kravice waterfalls / slapovi Kravice






No one was injured during the shooting of this post.:)Nitko nije ozlijeđen tijekom snimanja:)


U ovo prelijepo mjesto sam se zaljubila na prvi pogled i uvijek se volim vraćati ovdje.

This beautiful place was love at first sight, I always love coming back there.

Lokacija/ Location:
Kravice falls
 

 
A lot of plans had to be changed last minute, but I hope that won't make too much difference. Holidays can be great but they can also be really stressful. Now, about the outfit. This vintage jacket is very close to my heart because I've painted the blue tree by myself. The only other thing that I want to mention is this long green scarf, isn't it fabulous?

Morala sam mjenjati planove u zadnji tren, ali valjda neće to biti previše bitno. Praznici mogu biti divni, a mogu biti i jako stresni. Sada što se tiče odjeće...Ova vintage jakna mi je posebno draga jer sam sama naslikala plavo drvo.  Jedino drugo što bi htjela spomenuti je ovaj dugi zeleni šal, zar nije famozan?

WIWT/ Što sam danas nosila








I stayed up late baking cakes and today I feel exhausted (it is probably the cleaning up that made me so tired, not the baking itself ...that part I always love). I honestly don't remember when I felt this tired.  How are you doing? Happy 4 advent if you're celebrating. I don't have much to say about what I wore today. I'm having a bad hair and skin day as you can clearly see. I almost want to fall asleep and wake up after Christmas or even New Year. I persist in wearing these jeans even if they are too short for me and I haven't done anything about that. I'm always in favor of wearing clothes that is about my own age, as is this amazing vintage leather jacket (that you saw on this blog about a dozen of times). I'm sure that once I get some rest, I'll feel a lot better. Perhaps I'll crash in early tonight...and get my groove back by tomorrow morning.

Ostala sam dokasno peći kolače i danas se osjećam iscrpljeno ( vjerojatno me čišćenje izmorilo, ne toliko pravljanje kolača jer to volim). Stvarno se ne sjećam kada sam se osjećala ovoliko umorno. Kako ste svi vi? Sretna zadnja nedjelja Došašća ako je slavite. Nemam puno toga reći o onome što sam danas nosila. Loš je dan i za kosu i za kožu, kao što se može jasno vidjeti. Skoro pa želim zaspati i probuditi se poslije Božića, možda čak i Nove godine. Uporna sam u nošenju ovih traperice iako su mi prekratke i nisam ništa poduzela po tom pitanju. Uvijek nositi odjevne komade koji su otprilike moja generacija, kao što je ova prekrasna vintage kožna jakna koju ste vidjeli na blogu barem desetak puta.  Sigurna sam da ću se osjećati puno bolje čim se naspavam. Možda odem ranije na spavanje...i sutra mi se vrati raspoloženje.

Autumn (outfit post) / Jesen (odjevna objava)




















Yesterday as the sun was setting in beautiful Mostar, I was reminded (probably by the mild temperature) that it is still Autumn. The climate in Herzegovina is not a lot different than to what I'm used to. Moreover, the temperature today was more than mild, it was warm. Nevertheless, I can feel the festive spirit in the air. In most religions, December has a special meaning. Perhaps, we are all looking forward to the days becoming longer or maybe just maybe there is really something magical about this month. Now, about the outfit. I'm wearing a dress that I have embroidered myself. Another thing that deserves mentioning is this lovely second hand leather bag that I was given recently (an early Christmas gift). I'll be wearing it all the time so you'll get a better view of it sooner or later...and if you're wondering about the guy standing next to me in that shot- that would be my husband. I will steal that jacket of his one of these days:).

Jučer dok je sunce zalazilo u lijepom Mostaru, blaga temperatura me je podsjetila da je još jesen. Klima u Hercegovini nije puno drukčija od one na koju sam navikla. Danas je pak temperatura bila više topla nego blaga. Svejedno, mogu osjetiti praznički ugođaj u zraku. U većini religija, prosinac ima posebno značenje. Možda se svi radujemo tome što će se dani uskoro produžiti, a možda ipak ima nešto čarobno u ovom mjesecu. Sada što se tiče odjevne kombinacije, izvodila bih samo dvije stvari, haljinu koju sam sama izvezla i second hand kožnu torbu koju sam nedavno dobila na poklon (nositi ću je stalno pa ćete je vidjeti bolje prije ili kasnije). Jedina zajednička fotografije u objavi, to bi bili ja i muž. Ukrasti ću mu tu jaknu ovih dana:).

DIY Christmas cards / Uradi sam božične čestitke




this one is still work in progress/ ova još nije gotova










The great thing about making your own Christmas cards (or any cards for that matter) is that you don't need to buy any supplies or materials (no need to run down to a hobby shop) , take any classes or participate in any workshops to be able to do it. You may use whatever you like, cut an image from some magazine, a piece of fabric or paper napkin and just glue it to a paper or cardboard. You might use old Christmas decorations, make up or nail-polish, anything really. I think that the most important thing is to make them personal and I believe that the person you give it to or send it to will appreciate the special effort you took to make them.

 To me it made sense to use  my own illustrations as well as to make some new ones (but you may use whatever you like). In addition, I used other things I found in my home, such as cardboard (from used packaging) , make up supplies (cotton pads or cotton balls to be more precise), glue and paper napkins (these bird printed paper napkins I bought in DM with  DIY agenda in mind and have used them in many DIY projects so I can say they really payed off).

I might do another post like this one, with more ideas, so if you're up for that don't forget to write so in the comments.

Odlična stvar kod pravljenja svojih vlastitih božičnih čestitki (ili bilo kakvih čestitki što se toga tiče) je da ne morate kupovati nikakve materijale ( ne morate trčati do hobby prodavaonice) niti pohađati neke sate ili radionice da biste to mogli napraviti. Možete koristiti što god želite, izrezati sliku iz nekog časopisa, komad tkanine ili salvete i jednostavo to zaljepiti na papir ili karton. Možete koristiti stare božične dekoracije, šminku, lak za nokte, bilo što zaista. Mislim da je najvažnija stvar učiniti ih posebnim i vjerujem da će osoba kojoj ih date ili pošaljete cijeniti poseban trud koji ste uložili da ih napravite.

Meni se činilo logičnim koristiti vlastite ilustracije kao i napraviti neke nove. Osim toga, koristila sam stvari koje sam pronašla doma, kao što je karton ( s nekih pakiranja), pamučne blazinice (ili jastučiće kako tko već kaže mada su ovo više pamučne kuglice), ljepilo i salvete (ove salvete s uzorkom ptičica sam kupila u DM-u, imajući na umu baš ovakve uradi sam projekte, dosta sam ih koristila, preslatke su i baš su mi se isplatile.)

Mogla bih napisati još jedan ovakav post, s još više ideja, pa ako vam to zanima, ne zaboravite to napisati u komentarima.
