A city you should visit/ Grad koji biste trebali posjetiti...

Do you like to travel? One of the cities that I warmly recommend (for a visit or a stay) is Sibenik. The city center is as beautiful  as it was in the middle ages, so it will give you a feeling of stepping out of the time machine and finding yourself in another time and place.

Volite putovati? Jedan od gradova koji biste trebali posjetiti je svakako Šibenik. Centar grada je srednjovjekovni i više manje netaknut, tako da je poseban osjećaj prošetati njime, osjećate se kao da ste zakoračili u daleku prošlost.
If you ask me, the first place to see is the city Cathedral of Saint James. It left quite an impression on me.  The stone decoration (that you can see behind me) is as fine as lace!  The Cathedral of St. James is the most important Renaissance architectural monument in Croatia and it has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 2000. It is utterly beautiful, I cannot think of a better way to describe it than that.

Prvo što biste trebali vidjeti je katedrala svetog Jakova, najvažniji renesansni spomeniku u Hrvatskoj i zaštićena baština UNESCA od 2000 godine. Katedrala je prelijepa, meni su se najviše svidjeli kameni ukrasi, koji su kao čipka (što možete vidjeti na fotografiji).

Sibenik- one of the parks in the city




The name for Sibenik in Croatian is Šibenik, in Italian Sebenico and in German Sibennig. The first written reference of this city was in 1066 and for a time it was the seat of a Croatian king Kresimir. 

Prvi put se Šibenik spominje u dokumentima kralja Krešimira 1066 godine čiji je stolni grad i bio neko vrijeme.

I was in Sibenik this Sunday and on the same day I also visited Skradin (where Bill Gates has been vacationing for years) and a little island Visovac (in the National Park Krka) where a monastery is situated. So, you know what you can expect in the upcoming posts.

 If you do decide to visit Sibenik, keep in mind all those stunning (and just as rich in history) cities near by.  Be sure to visit Zadar, Trogir and Split. In addition, National Park Krka is just a few kilometers away from the city.

Ja sam u Šibeniku bila ove nedjelje, a isti dan sam posjetila i Skradin i Visovac ( tako da znate o čemu će biti budući postovi) Nekoliko kilometara od grada Šibenike nalazi se i nacionalni park Krka. Ako se odlučite za posjet Šibeniku imajte u vidu sve lijepe gradove u blizini, također bogate poviješću, pa kad ste već tu obavezno posjetite Zadar, Trogir i Split.

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.

TIPS FOR A MORE SUSTAINABLE EASTER CELEBRATION

Happy Easter Monday everyone! Today I'll talk about how to have more sustainable Easter week celebration. I'll share some of my tips as well as my 'green' Easter day traditions. Before I get into sharing those tips, let me just say that traditional Easter customs are more likely to be environmentally conscious. So, tradition is a great way to look for inspiration. Ask your elders, relatives and friends about their Easter traditions, they can give you useful tips, advice and inspiration. Naturally, internet is also a great resource for environmentally friendly Easter. There are a lot of creative people out there that are constantly coming up with sustainable decor and recipes, so why not tap into that? Feel free to share your Easter traditions as well. A great thing about collecting green tips is that most of them can be applied to any festivity!
My Easter day 'green' ideas include: using natural egg dyes, using recycled Easter decor, not being wasteful with fo…

IS MOSTAR A GOOD EASTER DAY DESTINATION? PLUS A SPRING OUTFIT PROPOSAL

Luckily for me, Mostar is an excellent Easter day destination. You see, I had travel plans for this Easter weekend, but I caught a bad cold so I decided to stay in the city I'm currently based in. That's actually not a bad thing because (if you ask me) Mostar makes for a great Easter day destination. Naturally, I've would have loved to visit my family, but since that wasn't possible, I'm happy to be spending Easter in Mostar. I've already cleaned and decorated my home for Easter so I'm all set. I've also prepared an outfit proposal but more about that later on. First I'll talk a bit about Mostar. Why is Mostar such a great spring destination? I can think of a number of reasons, but from top of my head I would say wonderful climate, beautiful landmarks and interesting history. Mostar is gorgeous in spring time. With its seven rivers and a number of lovely parks, Mostar can feel like a city oasis.


 Spending Easter in Mostar is something I would defin…

HOW TO STYLE A NAVY SUIT FOR SPRING? OUTFIT PROPOSAL & TIPS

EN In my last post, I've wrote about sustainable ways to celebrate Easter and today I'll show you what I wore for Easter. Typically I like to wear dresses for Easter day, but this year I decided to suit up. You have already seen a part of my Easter outfit in my last post, mainly the white linen folklore shirt I bought a few years ago (from a nice Croatian lady who specializes in making traditional and folklore garments). I believe you know that I have a thing for traditional and folklore clothing. As for the rest of my Easter styling, I shopped my closet to pick up this navy blazer. I paired it with navy flares I originally bought to wear to work. Good thing that my personal style isn't a casual one, and I actually enjoy wearing business/ formal wear I buy for work. If you look closely, you'll see that the blazer and the pants are not the same shade of navy blue, but slightly different. This blazer isn't actually a part of a suit, but often I like to create my own…
