READING UPDATE: PLAYER PIANO AND FAULT IN OUR STARS (BOOK REVIEWS)

Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…

TRANSITIONAL OUTFITS: HOW TO STYLE WHITE JEANS WHILE IT'S STILL COLD?

Hello darlings, how are you? I stayed up reading until 3 a.m yesterday so I'm definitely happy it's Sunday today. Anyhow, today we'll talk transitional outfits while it is still cold.  Transitional styling can be tricky with weather being a bit unpredictable. However, it can also be a lot of fun. Dressing stylishly  but staying comfortable is not hard as long as you think your outfits through (and check the weather forecast). We all know some basic tricks of transitional winter to spring styling such as layering your outfits (so you can take something off when you get warm), introducing lighter colours and patterns associated with spring or summer (be in form of spring patterns, colours or accessories). There are definitely way to make spring seem close even when it might still be fresh outside.  I enjoy introducing elements of spring fashion slowly, it's more fun that way. Moreover, I feel it makes us better appreciate the season that is to come. So, don't despai…

TOP DESTINATIONS CROATIA: TUČEPI, CHURCH OF SAINT ANTHONY

Tučepi (pronounced Tuchepi) is a actually municipality that included a few small villages (perhaps better to call them hamlets) and not just the touristic coastal settlement most visitors will be familiar with. Tourists will be familiar with Tučepi as the seaside settlement located right new to the Makarska. You can literary walk from Makarska to that part of Tučepi and I'm sure lots of people do it. Like Makarska city, seaside Tučepi is famous for its beautiful beaches. Being a touristic destination, the accommodation options in Tučepi are great (hotels, private accommodation etc). It's a very typical Adriatic coastal settlement that is also a touristic hotspot, one might say. However, what most people don't know is that there is such a thing as Gornji Tučepi (literally translated Upper Tučepi) and that part of Tučepi (located on the slopes of Biokovo mountain) is much older than the seaside part.

CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: MAKARSKA CITY, THE MAIN CITY SQUARE

Hello my dear readers! Today I'm back with another post from Makarska city, a very popular coastal touristic destination in Croatia. If you remember, I went to Makarska on the first of March to visit a family member. I went back again last Friday (exactly a week ago) and the weather was dreamy. We had a great time, we sure did.  In this first photograph, you can see me standing in front of Franciscan monastery and church of Blessed Virgin. I will write a more about this monastery some other time, and today I'll show you a bit more of Makarska city itself and show some of its many attractions (like the main city square and the church of Saint Mark the Evangelist). If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check out my recent post about Makarska. You can also check out this old Makarska travel post (dating to March, 2016). As you can see, I've been to Makarska a few times. Not nearly enough, if you ask me. It is a beautiful city and I think I even prefer it in spring sea…
