Assisi (photo diary), Asiz (fotografski dnevnik)

Assisi was the last city that I had visited on my recent trip to Italy. It is such  a beautiful city and so rich in history. The  location of the city is wonderful, it is surrounded by nature. Simply said,  I was truly amazed by Assisi. I hope to return there some day. There was one special black cat that stole my heart. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take him with me as it would be impossible to get him trough customs.

Some basic info from wikipedia: "Assisi (Italian pronunciation: [asˈsiːzi], from the Latin: Asisium) is a town and comune of Italy in the province of Perugia in the Umbriaregion, on the western flank of Monte Subasio.
It was the birthplace of St. Francis, who founded the Franciscan religious order in the town in 1208, and St. Clare (Chiara d'Offreducci), the founder of the Poor Sisters, which later became the Order of Poor Clares after her death. The 19th-century Saint Gabriel of Our Lady of Sorrows was also born in Assisi."

Mene je Asiz oduševio u svakom pogledu. Gradić je jednostavno prekrasan, jedan od onih doista posebnih mjesta koja su jednako blagoslovljena savršenom okolicom i prirodom koliko i samom svojom ljepotom. Čak mi je jedan crni mačak oteo srce, ali nažalost nisam ga smjela ponijeti sa sobom jer ne bi prošao carinu.

Podaci sa Wikipedije: "Assisihrvatski također i Asiz (latinskiAsisium), je grad u talijanskoj pokrajini Perugi, u regiji Umbria. Smješten je na manjoj planini Asi (po kojoj je dobio ime) koja se nalazi na zapadnoj strani planine Monte Subasio, na pola puta između gradova Perugia i Foligno, oko 66 km sjeverno od Rima.Grad je najpoznatiji kao rodno mjesto sv. Franje koji je u gradu osnovaofranjevački red 1208. godine, sv. Klare (Chiara d'Offreducci), osnivačicereda Klarisa, te Gabriela od tužne Gospe iz 19. stoljeća."

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…
