green maxi (one photo outfit post;) --- zelena duga haljina (jedna upitna odjevna kombinacija)

It's no secret that I like maxi dresses. However, this one present a bit of a challenge. I love the colour of it but I'm not sure how to dress it down and what kind of shoes to match it with. In this outfit it's the blue ones that you can see, but I'm not sure how well they go with it. Any suggestions?

Nije tajna da volim duge haljine. Ipak ova mi je pomalo izazov. Jako mi se sviđa njena boja, ali nisam sigurna kako je učiniti više ležernom i sa kakvim je cipelama uskladiti. U ovoj kombinacija izbor je pao na tamno plave, ali nisam sigurna koliko one dobro idu sa tim. Ima li prijedloga?

award time again:)

Prvo, prije nego što prijeđem na engleski, hvala mojoj imenakinji na nagradi:)
Hello, my sweets, lovely Ivana from http://5foot7andbambieyes.blogspot.com/ awarded me with this reward.



The official rules for accepting this award are as follows:

1. Add the award to your blog
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you
3. Mention 7 random things about you
4. List the rules
5. Award to 15 bloggers
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blogs

7 random things about me... here we go:

1. I hate jogging but I do it anyway. I prefer sprinting but you have to prepare for that and I don't always have the time.
2. I'm obsessed with languages. I always try to read the blogs in the language of the blogger and most of time I can understand it.
3.  I'm a bookaholic,  and a shoppingholic only when it comes to books, especially literature!  I can live without pretty much everything but books. 
4.  I'm not really into watching sports, but to be honest I sometimes watch them because of the good-looking athletes. ( Cough, Vladimir Klicho)
5. I spend a lot of time on Skype  but I don't have Facebook,  twitter or anything of the kind. Blogging is more my cup of tea.
6. I don't usually listen to pop, but I like almost all of the Shakira's songs.
7. Sometimes I suffer from insomnia, but then I can read my books so I'm not really complaining.


Now, here are my 15 selections (and yes, I haven't figured out how to g+ people):

Međugorje ( a view from the hill Krizevac)/ Međugorje (pogled sa Križevca)



Thou art more lovely...and what can possibly be more lovely than a summer (or a nice warm spring day)? Shakespeare must have met someone pretty amazing to inspire him to write that famous lines...and in fact it was a man. Yeap! Not to say that Shaki was gay, we cannot possibly know that, in those days people (or poets at any rate) were pretty open about expressing their feelings towards their friends. I'm just pointing out the fact that sometimes education system is afraid to talk about things that don't fit their definition of  "appropriate".

Moving on, I've met a few people in my life that really art as lovely as a summer day....  That are really as warm and full of light as this beautiful day in Medjugorje was. Friends are perhaps the greatest blessing in one's life. Once more it is time for a sporty outfit. In reality I have spend today day in Split (Dalmatia) and not in Medjugorjne ( Herzegovina) but I don't have any photos to share from today and besides I've been dying to share this gorgeous view with you guys:)

Zdravo, ekipica, šta ima? Ja sam provela lijepi dan u Splitu, ali htjela bi vam pokazati slike iz Međugorje, jer mi se ovaj pogled sa brda Križevac doista sviđa. Prekrasan pogled! Odjevna kombinacija je skroz sportska i to bi bilo to. Gledajući ove divne fotografije, sjetila sam se onog Shakespearovog besmrtnog osamnaestog soneta pa evo ga:

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate;
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date;

Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;

But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st:

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Sporty style (outfit post)/ Sportski stil (odjevna kombinacija)


Don't you just love when you can feel both comfortable and stylish? This dress does that for me. I always feel dressed up when I wear it, even when I pair it with sneakers, as I have done yesterday. I really like this little dress...You might have noticed that I like stripes. Right now I'm on a self imposed shopping ban, so it is really fun to find out how much I can follow the trends without buying new clothes...

The temperatures have been high these last few days, making my outfits more summer than spring appropriate. I usually take a jacket with me, just to be on the safe side, but there is never the need to wear it during the day. Yes, it's really warm during the day. Not that I'm complaining, I feel most comfortable when the temperatures are almost desert like.

Zar nije divno kad se možete osjećati i udobno i dotjerano, kako se ja uvijek osjećam u ovoj haljini, čak i kad sam u patikama (tenisicama) još uvijek se osjećam sređeno. Stvarno mi se sviđa ova haljinica, iz više razloga ....možda ste primjetili da volim pruge.

Temperature su bile visoke zadnjih dana, pa imam osjećaj da se odijevam za ljeto, ne za proljeće. Ponesem jaknu za svaki slučaj, ali preko dana stvarno nije potrebna jer je stvarno toplo...na što se ne žalim, jer uživam u skoro pa pustinjskim temeraturama.

pletenice (frizura post)/braids (hair style post)

I've realized that I braid my hair...a lot. In fact, it is almost always braided. There is the practical side to it, I have heavy, thick and straight hair so it is a really convenient hair style for me. However, I also love the aesthetic aspect of it. What do you think about this trend? Do you braid your hair?
Shvatila sam da pletem pletenice...često. U stvari skoro mi je uvijek kosa u pletenicama. Da, to ima i svoju praktičnu stranu, imam gustu, tešku i ravnu kosu tako da su pletenice idealno rješenje za moju kosu. No, sviđa mi se i kako izgledaju. Što vi mislite o ovom trendu? Pletete li svoju kosu?

Springtime/ Proljeće (outfits and photography post)

Let's start with what I wore this morning. It was all about the colour blue and flowers....and what follows is a little bit of this and that: another outfit, another manicure (in case that yesterday's manicure recap wasn't enough) and a few photographs of nature. 
Za početak moja jutarnja odjevna kombinacija, a onda pomalo svega...još jedna odjevna kombinacija, još jedna manikura (ako prošli post nije bio dovoljan) i par fotografija prirode.

 You have always reacted very favorably to my photographs of the river Neretva, so here are a few more:

nails recap+ blondie DIY "how to write lyrics on a shirt"-----sažetak manicura i uradi sam " pisanje teksta pjesme na košulji"







Yesterday it was time for philosophy and today I'll keep it simple. First thing that I want to show you are  some manicures that I have done, nothing spectacular as I'm obviously no professional, but still you might find some of them interesting.

Jučer je bilo dosta filozofiranja, danas su na redu jednostavno stvari. Prvo, neke od mojih manikura, koje nisu ništa posebno, ali eto možda vam pokoja bude zanimljiva.

                                                      DIY- inspired by Blondie

When it comes to rock, there is only one Blondie for me. That blondie is Deborah Harry that together with Chris Stain founded the legendary rock band Blondie. If I had to pick a favourite song by them, it would be Maria. That song never fails to make me feel better. So, without further ado, this is my DIY inspired by the lyrics of the song in question!

Kada je u pitanju rock, za mene postoji samo jedna blondie, a to je Deborah Harry koja je zajedno sa Chrisom Stainom osnovala legenendarni istoimeni rock back. Ukoliko bi morala odabrati omiljenu pjesmu, to bi bila Marija, doista kad je čujem uvijek se osjećam bolje...pa bez nekog odgađanja, evo moja varijacija na temu "ispiši omiljeni tekst neke pjesme na svoju košulju."

working out philosophy/ filozofija vježbanja









With arrival of spring, many of you will decide to start working out. Not that there is anything wrong with that. However, the fitness industry (as the diet industry) is most of the times aggressive and not always truthful.  So, here is what I have to say.

- There is no such thing as a perfect work out for everyone.

Depending on your age, job, responsibilities, health etc... a certain exercise regime may or may not be good for you. There are so many factors that have to be taken into consideration. So, don't chose the work out that promises a certain result, chose a work out that works for you!

- Exercise to get rid of stress, don't stress over exercising

The truth is that human body need physical activity. Any kind of exercise will do really. When you're cleaning the house, it counts...when you're running after a toddler, it counts...when you're shopping all day...yes that burns calories too! and fulfilling martial duties is also good exercise;)

The important thing is that the exercise you have selected fits you...your needs...Are you a student? a parent? a CO? all of these factors are to be taken into account. Some things you may want to consider is how many hours a day do you spend sitting down... For example most people avoid doing back exercises. Don't forget about your spine muscles, they are really important. Posture is almost everything when it comes to appearance!

- Forget the body that you're dreaming about and enjoy the body that you have

Fitness industry says that you can shape your body any way you want to. That is not completely true. Genetics controls how we look in most cases. Besides, it  is a wrong approach to things. You should care more about how you feel. How much energy do you have to do things? How do you feel during the day and things like that...

Women and fitness

One more thing...abs actually make your waist wider. Yes, that is a fact. If you have side muscles on your tummy and they get bigger...think logically. This is not to say that you shouldn't have abs. I'm just saying you cannot have everything! You cannot have tiny waist and a six pack. Obviously men don't care about having tiny waist, but let's be frank, most of us ladies want it! I've read a very good article on this topic written by a fitness instructor and I couldn't agree with her more on this subject.

Most of exercise regimes ignore the female body altogether.  Women constantly do exercises that were designed for the men. The best thing is to focus on your health, not looks. However, I'm aware that we all want to look a certain way...and that is ok, as long as it is not some mad idea and as long as we're realistic about it. Some goals are achievable...but you might want to be careful about what you do when exercises, because the results may not be what you have wanted.

For example, I've always been a capital swimmer but I have to tell you finding clothes that fit is a nightmare because of the fact that swimming made my back wider. Look, I happen to like wide shoulders...but if you don't, you might want to take care about the type of exercise that you do. I see many women slaving away in the gym wanting to be slimmer and they end up being wider...Muscles are healthy (in moderation) but they do make you bigger. I'm just saying, if you're putting the energy into something, you should get your money's worth, sort to say.

 I just think it is unfair how the fitness industry promises things that it cannot give to you. There are exercises and sports that are recommended for achieving an hourglass shape and they include: running, basketball and ballet ( The list doesn't end here, surf the web I have seen some good articles on the subject)

To sum up, don't trust everything you read. Don't trust me or any other person. Trust yourself and what you have found out for yourself! Every body is unique and we all live different live styles....Find the work out that works out for YOU!

ruffles and flower print (outfit post) / volani i cvjetni uzorak (odjevna kombinacija)


Ruffles are one of the spring trends that I really like. I don't wear them often and to be honest I think ruffles can be a bit tricky to combine (or perhaps I just need additional practice). When this trend is concerned, a little goes a long way I would say. Ruffles create volume so you might want to be careful with that. The trick I think is to have them in the right places (peplum dress being the ideal example).

When I think of ruffles, I get this idea of femininity in my head...just like when I think about floral print. So when I saw (last spring) this shirt  that combines the two I had to have it. The rest of the outfit I had kept pretty simple with minimal jewellery (wedding ring, watch and tiny earrings). This skirt is very practical and I like the length.  It can also be worn lower on the waist but if you ask me a high waist is a women's best friend.

This is the first time this year that my legs are bare and I have to say it is funny to see them this pale. I've often hear women complaining they cannot wear skirts because they're legs are white...but how will you get your legs tanned if you don't expose them to the sun? My advice is don't wait for the summer. If you like skirts and dresses, by all means wear them in the spring.


....and if you're wondering where the photos were taken (you know I like to travel), the answer is Medjugorje (Bosnia and Herzegovina). I was there this morning so that is where the photos were taken. xoxo

Volani...što mislite o njima?  To je jedan od proljetnih trendova koji mi se stvarno sviđa, ali ponekad nisam sigurna kako ih nositi. Kad su volani u pitanju, možda je manje više. Mislim da je ključno nositi ih na pravim mjestima. Volani dodaju volumen, pa sa njima nekada treba biti oprezan. Svi mi želimo volumen na pravim mjestima, zar ne? Zato je na svakome da odabere kako će nositi volane (i naposljetku hoće li ih nositi.)

Ova košulja cvjetnog uzorka koju sam danas nosila dosta je upečatljiva, a i volani su baš izraženi tako da sam se pri izboru ostatka odjeće i modnih dodataka oslanjala na jednostavnost. Crne cipele i torba, jako malo nakita (vera,sat i male naušnice). Ova jednostavna prljavoroza suknja mi je jako draga,  a može se nositi i niže (na kukovima). No ako se mene pita, visoki struk je najbolji prijatelj svake žene. 

Proljeće je u zraku, a ja sam prvi put ove godine golih nogu. Malo mi se noge čine bjedunjavima, ali što se može? Često sam čula žene i djevojke kako se žale da ne mogu nositi suknje i haljine jer su im noge bijele. Kako misle pocrniti ako su stalno u hlačama? Moj savjet je nosite suknje i haljine (ako vam se sviđaju naravno) pa ćete dobiti boju po nogama. Kome se sad da čekati ljeto i plažu? 

...i ako se pitate gdje sam, jutros sam bila u Međugorju pa sam se tamo i slikala. pozdrav!
