DIY post: how to make a statement collar and some other stuff/ kako napraviti sam ukras za kosu i osvježiti košulju ukrašavanjem ovratnika i još ponešto

Danas sam vam pripremila par jako jednostavnih stvari koje možete sami uraditi. Today I have prepared for you a few very simple DIYs.

1. Istaknuti ovratnik to bi bio hrvatski prijevod od "statement collar" koji je u zadnje vrijeme u trendu.  Zapravo ovo nije prvi put da radim ovakvo nešto, već sam jedan ovratnik ukrasila ili kako bismo mi u Dalmaciji rekli kolet. Prvi put stavila sam zlatnu dugmad, pa je izgledalo pomalo kao nakit, ali ovaj put odlučila sam se za nešto jednostavnije. Pošto jako volim košulje, nemam srca nijednoj tek tako odrezati ovratnik, pa je varijanta koju sam odabrala jednostavno ukrasiti ovratnik košulje koju već imam ( u ovom slučaju već ukrašen bojama za tkaninu). Sve što vam treba je par botuna (dugmadi) u boji i igla i konac. Jako jednostavno!

In short, this would be my take on a statement collar trend. I don't have the heart to cut the collar of any of my shirts so I just decorate the collars on the shirts that seem appropriate for it. In this case the collar was already painted on with colours for it (by me a few years ago), so I just had to sew some buttons on it and called it a day. This is a very simple DIY, all you need is a needle and a few buttons.

Što vam se čini? Meni ovakav ovratnik baš djeluje veselo.
So, what do you think? To me it looks somehow very playful.

2. Vrpca za kosu
Vrlo jednostavan način rađenja ukrasa za kosu je umetnuti traku fijokić (mašnu) u običnu ukosnicu. Možete se poslužiti žicom da je učvrstite, a možete je i samo svezati. Vjerovatno kući imate malo satenske trake, ako ništa možete rastaviti onaj ukras koji dobijete u svatovima i tako napraviti mali ukras. Što vas se čini?

3. DIY How to make your own  satin bow?
To make your own satin bow, all you just need some satin cord (you can buy it anywhere) a bobby pin. To make a bow from a satin cord and attach it to an ordinary bobby pin. Very simple as I said and it's much easier this way. I've seen films about old times and women always used to tie their hair with satin cord but that looks kind of difficult and  I think that after a few times you would have to iron the satin anyway that is what I meant when I said this seems easier.

 šminka ...ovo je pomalo nespretan pokušaj slikanja šminke. (svaka sugestija o slikanju je dobrodošla) Za predprošli Božić dobila sam od nevjeste razna sjenila pa sam odlučila malo promjeniti nešto i pokušati staviti sjenilo u nekoj veselijoj boji. Ne šminkad se baš puno inače, iako mi ne bi bilo loše da se češće mažem zbog problema sa tenom, ali to je duga priča. Ovo bi bio nekakva dnevna šminka, malo maskare, tuša i malo sjenila roze boje. Što vam se čini?

Now a somewhat clumsy attempt of taking a photo of my make up. Any tips on the subject would be more than welcomed! I'm kind of boring when it comes to make up so I decided to try something new with a pink eye shadow. What do you think?

3. Kako oslikati običnu bijelu košulju?  Osim prvog prijedloga, a to je uređivanje ovratnika, možete uvijek nešto napisati na košulji. Ja volim slikati, ali pisanje je jednostavnije, pogotovo za vas koji možda ne volite crtanje i slično (ipak ne zaboravite na šablone to vam uvijek može pomoći). Zašto ne spojiti modu i moju ljubav prema jezicima.Mislim da ovo nisam spomenula prije, ali jedna od novogodišnjih odluka mi je naučiti hebrejski. 
How to refresh an ordinary white shirt? Besides the first DIY that involves a statement collar, you can always write something on it. ( For those of you who don't enjoy painting this is the perfect DIY) I love printed tees, so why not write on a shirt? Indeed, why shouldn't I join my love towards languages and fashion? All you need is some colour suitable for the job and you can buy that in any hobby shop.

I don't think I have mentioned this before but one of my resolution for this year is to learn Hebrew.  I like the sound of the language and the script is beautiful. What do you think about this DIY?

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
