new scarf/ novi šal


“A mind is like a parachute. It doesn't work if it is not open.” - Frank Zappa

" You have to have an open mind. If you're not enjoying it, don't do it. Life's too short."- Debbie Meyer

My new tartan scarf was actually something else originally. Can you guess what? A tablecloth, believe it or not. It is wonderful what you can find if you keep an open mind.

Moj je novi karirani šal zapravo bio zamišljen kao nešto nešto drugo. Možete li pogoditi što? Stolnjak, vjerovali ili ne. Divno je što možete pronaći ako ste otvorenih pogleda:)

DIY (home decoration ideas)---ideje za uređenje doma

I have promised you more DIY projects, haven't I? So, for the first DIY project you will need an old glass that you don't use any more. Next step is to decorate it with nail polish and insert a candle in it. (The more different nail polishes you use, the more colorful will  the light from the candle be.) Finally, what you will get is an interesting decoration that won't cost you anything.

Obećala sam vam još neke uradi sam projekte, zar ne? Prva ideja za uređenje doma je pretvaranje stare čase u zanimljivu dekoraciju. Ukrasite je sa lakom za nokte i ubacite svijeću unutra  ( što više različitih nijansi laka za nokte  biti će raznobojnija svjetlost svijeće), i dobiti ćete svijetlo u bojama, a ništa vas neće stajati.








You can have a look ar few photos of the " colour application" process. How neat you want to be is entirely up to you. As you see, I wasn't really that neat but I think it looks good this way too.

Sada, par fotografija samog procesa bojanja. Koliko ćete biti uredni ( ili pedatni) ovisi potpuno o vama, ja kao što vidite nisam bila vrlo, ali mislim da i ovako šareno dobro izgleda.

_______________________________________________________________________________
Now, time for  the second decoration idea. This DIY vase you had the chance of seeing before, I did add some colour on it but that is not the point. The decoration idea here is to insert candles into the vase that you have previously filled with water. No need to buy special candles because the regular ones float just as well. 

Sada, druga ideja za uređenje doma. Vazu ste već vidjeli i da sada je još šarenija, ali to nije poanta. Ideja za uređenje je da u vazu stavite vodu i u nju svijeće. Obične svijeće plutaju jednako dobro kao i one plutajuće, pa nema potrebe da ih kupujete.

DIY (earrings/ naušnice)

One of the tools that I  use most often for the DIY is believe it or not: nail-polish. There are many things it can be used for, as I will demonstrate with future posts, but the most important thing is that now you don't have to feel guilty about not spending all the nail-polishes that you have. DIY is always twice the fun when it includes  recycling,  isn't it? 

Jedan od alata koji najčešće koristim za uradi sam projekte je vjerovali li ne : lak za nokte. Za puno toga se može koristiti, kao što ću pokazati u budućim postovima, ali najvažnije je da se više ne morate osjećati krivim zato što niste potrošili sve lakove za nokte koje imate. Uradi sam stvari su najbolje kad uključuju recikliranje, zar ne?

Assisi (photography/ fotografija)










What to say about Assisi? It seems to be situated somewhere between earth and heaven. It has to be one of the most beautiful cities there is. I was there in March and I do hope I'll get another chance to visit this wonderful place.

Što reći o ovom gradu? Čini se da lebdi negdje između neba i zemlje. Jedan od najljepših gradova u kojima sam bila ( i žao mi je što sam bila samo jednom, a to je bilo u ožujku ove godine, nadam se da ću ga imati priliku ponovo posjetiti)

wonderful middle age kind of outfits to match the middle ages kind of architecture. I have no idea who these girls were but they were just fabulous.

Rainy days/ Kišni dani







Attitude

 In the grey colour of time,
there is a thing, 

in the rain, in the wind, in the shadows,
there is a thing, 
in the grey colour of time,

its name I do not know.  *

poem by Croatian poet Miroslav Slavko Mađar. 

 This is what I wore yesterday, an appropriate outfit for a cold, rainy and windy day.  I like to contradict the grayness of the rainy days with some colour. Do you think it is a good idea? What about you?  Do rainy days make you feel melancholic? What kind of outfit can improve your mood?

Stav

U sivoj boji vremena 
ima jedna stvar,


u kiši, u vjetru, u sjenama,
ima jedna stvar,
u sivoj boji vremena.

Ne znam joj imena. *
pjesma Miroslava Slavka Mađara

Ovo je što sam nosila jučer, prikladna odjeća za hladan, kišan i vjetrovit dan. Volim proturječiti sivilu kišnih dana sa bojama. Što vi kažete? Mislite li da je to dobra ideja? Čine li vas kišni dani melankoničnim? Što nosite za popravljanje raspoloženja?

Prvi rođendan/ First birthday

My blog is celebrating its first year of existence today! 365 days, 387 published posts. I didn't have any goals when I've started it, so I cannot measure it up against anything but if nothing else I can say I've been pretty productive as far as the posting and the writing goes. Thank you all so much for your comments and support:)

Moj blog danas ima svoj prvi rođendan! 365 dana, 387 objavljenih postova.  Nisam imala ništa u planu kada sam ga počela pa nemam ga sa čim usporediti, ali barem mogu reći da sam bila poprilično produktivna što se tiče objavljivanja i pisanja. Hvala svima na komentarima i potpori:)

Midi again ( outfit post)














I love midi skirts, I really do. This one is a big tricky to walk in as it not allows me to take big steps (or walk crazy fast) as I usually do, but I love it anyway. It's vintage so that is also a plus in my book. The jacket is from outlet store Azel and I have worn it in the last post (and many many times it has made apperance on this blog) as have these Nosens shoes that are seriously the most comfortable shoes ever. If you're wondering about the magical place- Buna river near Mostar. Date: last Saturday...

Stvarno volim suknje dužine ispod koljena. U ovoj je komplicirano hodati jer ne mogu koračati dugim koracima ni onoliko brzo kao obično, ali svejedno mi jako draga. To što je vintage je za mene samo plus...Jakna je iz Azela, nosim je jako često i u prošlom odjevnom postu...cipele isto stalno nosim, preudobne su...A mjesto snimanja je rijeka Buna pored Mostara prošle subote.
