Versatile blogger award

 Thank you dear Shaira ( from www.missdream-girl.blogspot.com ) for nominating me for the versatile blogger award. I already did this once but what the heck once again won't hurt. Do check out her blog here!

Here are my seven facts:

1. I cried like a baby while reading The Autobiography of Martin Luther King Jr. Sure there were other books that made me cry, but this one especially so....Every chapter tears were flowing down my cheeks and despite that (or maybe because of that) I really took time and effort to read every single sentence with attention it so rightfully deserves.


2. As far as I can remember, I was always drawing and sketching. This blog didn't change that but how would I ever got into making personalized fashion illustrations  without it? You fashion bloggers always inspire me...and  for that inspiration I'm quite grateful. 


3. I'm totally a foodie. I love everything about food...Preparing it and eating it in equal measure. I even immensely enjoy decorating the dinning table and do it almost every day. My decorations often match a theme of the dish and naturally I make them myself. For me, every meal is a special occasion. Amen to that!


4. Sf geek all the way and not afraid to admit it...I worship Heinlein, Asimov, Zelazny, Hebert and Ursula K. Le Guin.  I once read about a girl breaking up with her boyfriend because he tried to move her sf collection from a very prominent place in their home and even worse to replace them with classics. I think my reaction would be the same. Dump the man that messes with your books is the only right thing to do!


5. I have quite a passion for recycling stuff, sometimes bordering on obsession. A kitchen appliance (i.e. whisk) gets broken? It need to get turned into a necklace. ASAP. Husband says whisk metal was made so it can't me bend. I would beg to differ. 



7. My imagination is quite wild.  I basically never get a good night sleep. If it is not insomnia, than it is nightmares. However, at least they're aesthetically pleasing and sometimes even fascinating nightmares. They're upper sides to having a really busy mind, for example, inspiration always comes easily for me, but there are also down sides and quite often I wish there was a shut down button somewhere in my head that I could press.


7. I love nature photography. Quite often I take photographs when I'm hiking. They almost never appear on the blog. Well, I can't find a place for everything on this little place of my own, can I?


Now, the rules state I should nominate 11 bloggers but I think I'll just let you tag yourself if you're interested. I would love to know your seven facts.

Primjedbe

  1. You have quite an interesting mind, different from most of the others who are interested in fashion :)) I already understood this before, but here I see you're quite intellectual, practical AND and artist!!!!
    .......think I don't qualify, until they reached their final destination in special book-chests I constantly moved my husband's books (and mine) according to the mood. Confess I even put them in order according to size once....:lol

  2. Martin Luther King was an extraordinary man! That's awesome that you find ways to recycle and reuse things. More of us need to do that. I love eating food but not preparing it. HAHAHA

  5. You deserve every award, dear :) I can never figure out who to nominate in things like this either, it makes me feel awkward so I do not actually enjoy the award. Like a chain letter. Very cool and cute facts. I have a very active mind too, always shooting off in a thousand directions. The only difference is, once asleep it pretty well shuts down, I rarely dream. xoxo

    1. i ja se to nekad pitam, ali možda naša podsvijest to samo obrađuje neke stvari koje bi nas nepotrebno opteretile.

  12. Dear Ivana, you are really a wonderful and absolutely talented woman! Your mind is so full of thoughts and you have also tons of skills. Although I'm really sorry for this fact I'm not astonished that you have seldom a good sleep. I think a mind which is as busy and active as yours can't even stop in the night. No wonder that you are dreaming in that way you described! Thanks a lot for sharing these interesting facts and for sure congratulations to the award. And I'm 45 but I'm sure you knew it already :)
    Happy Thursday evening, dear Ivana, you are a true enrichment to this world.

  13. Congratulations on the well deserved award Ivana! It was fun to learn more about you! I can imagine the Martin Luther King biography being very moving as he was such an inspiring figure who did so much during his life. I'm a foodie too. I'm always thinking about what to make for dinner and I actually plan my activities around where I want to eat :)

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
