Hand painted Easter Eggs/ Ručno oslikana Uskršna jaja




Malo je rano za pituravanje (pardon bojanje) jaja, ali sutra putujem tako da sam se danas malo zabavila sa time. Još sam neke stvari izrađivala, ukrašavala i tako to...Što vam se čini? Nije zabavno ako ne uprljaš ruke:) Sretni blagadni!

It's a bit early to be decorating the Easter eggs but I'm travelling tomorrow so today was the day to do it. Anyway, I always enjoy doing things like this so it was fun. What do you think? Happy holidays to you:)


no one is perfect/nitko nije savršen


Taking my photo while I'm blowing my nose is somebody's idea of fun (guess who it could be?)...and you know what? Considering how stressful the holidays can be( at least for those of us who try to make everyone happy) it may be a good thing to make fun of ourselves a little bit...After all, this is a pretty realistic photo since I really am blowing my nose all the time (damn that cold). So, here it is to the imperfection! Here it is to chipped nails and messy hair...and a perfect day I had last Sunday regardless of it all. This was taken while the boat (that took us to that little island you can see in the background) was arriving.

no place like home (outfit post)/ kod kuće je najljepše

No matter how much I love colour sometimes I go for (almost) all black outfit...There is something very attractive about the black. It is the colour of mystery and  night. Sometimes wearing black makes me feel tough....Anyway, I  know I'm getting boring with these nosens shoes but reality is they're so comfortable I want to wear them all the time. 

Bez obzira na to koliko volim boje, ponekad volim obući se skoro skroz u crno...Nešto je privlačno u toj boji noći i tajanstvenosti, a ponekad se u njoj osjećam baš opako....i da znam da sam dosadna s ovim nosens cipelama, ali stvarno su preudobne pa ih stalno nosim.

A city you should visit/ Grad koji biste trebali posjetiti...

Do you like to travel? One of the cities that I warmly recommend (for a visit or a stay) is Sibenik. The city center is as beautiful  as it was in the middle ages, so it will give you a feeling of stepping out of the time machine and finding yourself in another time and place.

Volite putovati? Jedan od gradova koji biste trebali posjetiti je svakako Šibenik. Centar grada je srednjovjekovni i više manje netaknut, tako da je poseban osjećaj prošetati njime, osjećate se kao da ste zakoračili u daleku prošlost.
If you ask me, the first place to see is the city Cathedral of Saint James. It left quite an impression on me.  The stone decoration (that you can see behind me) is as fine as lace!  The Cathedral of St. James is the most important Renaissance architectural monument in Croatia and it has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2000. It is utterly beautiful, I cannot think of a better way to describe it than that.

Prvo što biste trebali vidjeti je katedrala svetog Jakova, najvažniji renesansni spomeniku u Hrvatskoj i zaštićena baština UNESCA od 2000 godine. Katedrala je prelijepa, meni su se najviše svidjeli kameni ukrasi, koji su kao čipka (što možete vidjeti na fotografiji).

Sibenik- one of the parks in the city




The name for Sibenik in Croatian is Šibenik, in Italian Sebenico and in German Sibennig. The first written reference of this city was in 1066 and for a time it was the seat of a Croatian king Kresimir. 

Prvi put se Šibenik spominje u dokumentima kralja Krešimira 1066 godine čiji je stolni grad i bio neko vrijeme.

I was in Sibenik this Sunday and on the same day I also visited Skradin (where Bill Gates has been vacationing for years) and a little island Visovac (in the National Park Krka) where a monastery is situated. So, you know what you can expect in the upcoming posts.

 If you do decide to visit Sibenik, keep in mind all those stunning (and just as rich in history) cities near by.  Be sure to visit Zadar, Trogir and Split. In addition, National Park Krka is just a few kilometers away from the city.

Ja sam u Šibeniku bila ove nedjelje, a isti dan sam posjetila i Skradin i Visovac ( tako da znate o čemu će biti budući postovi) Nekoliko kilometara od grada Šibenike nalazi se i nacionalni park Krka. Ako se odlučite za posjet Šibeniku imajte u vidu sve lijepe gradove u blizini, također bogate poviješću, pa kad ste već tu obavezno posjetite Zadar, Trogir i Split.

summertime/ljeto

summertime
Most people love summertime, right? It makes sense. Today I'm feeling nostalgic about summer perhaps because it is raining. One thing that I especially like to wear in the summer is the maxi dress (preferably a cotton one). What about you? What do you like to wear in the summer?

Većina nas voli ljeto, zar ne? Ima to smisla. Danas mi baš nedostaje ljeto, valjda zbog toga što pada kiša. Ljeti najviše volim nositi duge haljine, po mogućnosti pamučne. Što je vama najdraži odjevni predmet ljeti?

gypsy / ciganka

colourful maxi
Gypsy  look...What do you need for it? I think that a voluminous maxi skirt (or dress) is a must. This colorful skirt I have had for ages and I love it to wear it. The photos were taken some time ago, but soon I'll show you photos of one amazing place.


Ciganski izgled...Što je potrebno? Prvenstveno duga (i široka) suknja (ili haljina. Ovu šarenu suknju imam već godinama i još je volim nositi. Ove fotografije su slikane prije određenog vremena, ali uskoro ću sa vama podijelit slike jednog nevjerovatnog mjesta. 

Yesterday I had done a lot of sight seeing and I'm tired but happy....I don't have the photographs yet but as soon as I have them, I'll post some. In the meantime I leave you with these photographs taken in Mostar (Bosnia and Herzegovina). It is always amazing how in this city (Mostar) one can feel as if being some magical  place , all you need is to come near to amazing Neretva river.

Jučer sam puno toga razgledala, pa sam umorna, a i sretna. Nemam još fotografije, ali čim ih budem imala, podijelit ću ih sa vama. U međuvremenu ostavljam vas s ovim fotografijama iz Mostara. Uvijek mi je nevjerovatno kako se (u Mostaru) možeš osjećati kao da si na nekom magičnom mjestu samo ako prošetaš uz Neretvu, kao da nisi u gradu.  



Do you know that Shakira song "Gypsy"?
....
Make the most of my stay
Because even if I arrived yesterday
I can be gone tomorrow
For I'm gypsy
...
Cool song and it sounds even better in Spanish.

Gitana

 
Nunca usé un antifaz
Voy de paso
Por este mundo fugaz
No pretendo parar
¿Dime quién camina
Cuando se puede volar?
Mi destino es andar
Mis recuerdos
Son una estela en el mar
Lo que tengo, lo doy
Digo lo que pienso
Tómame como soy
Y va liviano
Mi corazón gitano
Que solo entiende de latir
A contramano
No intentes amarrarme
Ni dominarme
Yo soy quien elige
Como equivocarme
Aprovechame
que si llegué ayer
Me puedo ir mañana
Que soy gitana
Que soy gitana
Sigo siendo aprendiz
En cada beso
Y con cada cicatriz
Algo pude entender
De tanto que tropiezo
Ya sé como caer
Y va liviano
Mi corazón gitano
Que solo entiende de latir
A contramano
No intentes amarrarme
Ni dominarme
Yo soy quien elige
Como equivocarme
Aprovechame
Que si llegué ayer
Me puedo ir mañana
Que soy gitana
Vamos y vemos..
Que la vida es un goce
Es normal que le temas
A lo que no conoces
Tómame y vamos
Que la vida es un goce
Es normal que le temas
A lo que no conoces
Quiero verte volar
Quiero verte volar
Y va liviano
Mi corazón gitano
Que solo entiende de latir
A contramano
No intentes amarrarme
Ni dominarme
Yo soy quien elige
Como equivocarme
Aprovechame
Que si llegué ayer
Me puedo ir mañana
Que soy gitana

shopping ban (today's outfit)/( današnja odjevna kombinacija )zabrana kupovine

About a year ago I read an article in German Vogue  about girls who decided to give up shopping for a year. I'm not exactly fluent in German but I understood why they did and long story short I decided to do it too (at least for the spring). Limitation can make us more creative. I'll keep you posted:)Btw Thank you for your kind wishes, I still feel a bit under the weather but I can't stand being indoors any more. xoxo

Prošle godine pročitala sam članak u njemačkom Vogeu o djevojkama koje su se odrekle kupovine na godinu dana. Nije mi baš njemački najača strana, ali uspijela sam razumijeti zašto su odlučile to i ukratko i ja si uvodim sličnu zabranu barem ovog proljeća. Nekad su ograničena izvor kreativnosti. Usput hvala na lijepim željama, još se osjećam pa ne baš najbolje, ali ne mogu više biti u kući. Pozdrav

mirror, mirror on the wall....ogledalce, ogledalce...

Ciao cari, come state? 
To tell you the truth, I haven't been feeling well these days. I caught a cold, had high fever and drank (perhaps) too much tea. It doesn't feel like the spring has come, it's still so cold.

Lipi moji, šta ima? Iskreno da kažem ne osjećam se baš najbolje. Prehladila sam se, imala temperaturu i ovih dana popila (možda) previše čaja. Ne čini mi se da je proljeće, još je hladno.
all black


tucked in blazer
this and that

a visit to the nature park Hutovo blato/ posjet parku prirode Hutovo blato

Nature park Hutovo blato (Bosnia and Herzegovina) is a home to  hundreds of bird species. I'm really concerned for its future, because the government is doing nothing (or very little) to protect it. Balkan (unlike the rest of Europe)  is a place where nature is for most part  untouched any yet so little is being done to protect it.

Park Prirode Hutovo blato (smješten u Bosni i Herzegovini blizu Čapljine) je dom stotina ptičjih vrsta. Zaista me brine njegova budućnost jer vlada (ili vlade) ne čini ništa da ga zaštiti. Čini mi se da su vlade na Balkanu lijene po pitanju zaštite prirode, što je ironično jer netaknute priroda je upravo ovdje najčešća ( za razliku od ostatka Europe), pa bi je baš zato trebalo zaštiti. Zar se nešto treba uništiti da bi se sačuvalo? 

Hutovo blato

Swamps are really important for preservation of nature and eco balance.

Fashion.hr "Four days of fashion"- part 1/ Četiri dana mode na fashion.hr- prvi dio

Today I want to talk about fashion event that took place in Zagreb (Croatia) and that I haven't personally attended so all the photographs from the fashion shows will be taken from the site fashion. hr. The fashion shows lasted for four days and  gave 16 designers the chance to present their work. If you want to learn more about it visit the site fashion.hr, they organized the event and covered it in detail.
In short here are my impressions:

Evo danas nešto (ukratko ) o četiri dana mode u organizaciji portala fashion hr. (odakle sam preuzela i fotografije jer sama nisam bila tamo), koja su pružila priliku 16 modnih kreatora da pokažu svoj rad.

U kratko evo mojih dojmova:

Ivica Klarić
Ivica Klarić ( the designer that ) had closed the fashion event this year. Having celebrating his ten years as a desgner this way,  (everyone seems to agree that) he was the icing on a cake. 

Ovaj divni modni kreator je zatvorio modni događaj svojom kolekcijom i čini se da se svi slažu da je njegova kolekcija (ujedno i proslava desetogodišnjice rada) došla kao šlag na torti. 


Alexandar Žarevac
Great collection and I love how he had chose not to go for the obvious footwear. The models are wearing Dr. Martens shoes and it gives the collection that rock vibe.

 Odlična kolekcija i meni osobno jako se sviđa to što manekenke nose martensice, (a ne visoke pete) i to daje kolekciji rokerski prizvuk.


I-GLE
Fashion duo( Martina Vrdoljak Ranilović i Nataša Mihaljčišin)  I-gle never disappoints. Perhaps the most artistic of all the designers, they have created a collection that plays with light and shadow  showing femininity in unexcpeted ways. According to their site what inspired them for this Fall/Autum 2014 collection was geometry.

Modni dvojac ( Martina Vrdoljak Ranilović i Nataša Mihaljčišin) nikad vas neće razočarati. Među prisutnim kreatorima možda najviše povezane s umjetnošću, stvorile su kolekciju koja se igra sa svjetlom i sjenom pokazujući ženstvenost na način koji nije očit.  Prema njihovoj stranici, za jesen/zimu 2013/2014 nadahnula ih je geometrija. 


Ana Maria Ricov 
Bold cuts, colours and patterns- What is there not to like?

Odvažni krojevi, boje i  uzorci. Jednostavno ti se mora svidjeti.



 Jovana Marković
I must admit that I haven't heard of this designer before so  I had googled her. She joined this event as a part of regional colleboration. I found her site and it states that she is a fashion designer from Belgrade (Serbia), born in 1986. So young! I really liked her collection. The leather details are great. It's a bit edgy but still feminine (and I like the hairdos so much)

Moram priznati da nisam prije nikad čula za ovu kreatoricu, pa sam je guglala. Ovoj reviji je prisustovala u sklopu regionalnog projekta. Našla sam njenu stranicu na kojoj piše da je iz Beograda i da je rođena 1986. Tako mlada! Uglavnom, jako mi se svidjela njena revija, ima tu neku dinamičnost (i usput odlične su mi frizure.)



     Branka Donassy


Being a fan of midi, how can I not love this collection? The subtle and warm colours are also a win.

Budući da jako volim ovu dužinu suknje i haljine, kako da mi se ne svidi ova kolekcija? Nježne i tople boje su baš pogođene.
