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."

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…


Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

Hello, darlings! I'm back two fashion illustration of one Zuhair Murad dress. This blue gown is so beautiful I simply had to illustrate it twice. It makes me think of the sea, the mermaids and basically the good old 'day at the beach' vibes. There is something so liberating about spending time by the ocean, isn't there? I grew up in a coastal town, and I do miss the sea terribly. However, that is surely not the only reason why I loved this dress so much. You know, when I think Zuhair Murad the first thing that comes to my mind is- haute couture. I feel he is one of those designers who were simply meant to make couture. Do you know what I mean? Murad's designs are always so exquisite, glam and elegant. I do like his ready-to-wear collections, but there is just something about his haute couture collections that makes them stand out in the sea of others. 
 I already illustrated a dress by this designer (here), and with the fashion week on its way, I opted for somethi…
