colours (outfit post) / boje (odjevna kombinacija)

Yesterday I watched a fascinating documentary about colours. Supposedly, lots of animals see more colours than we do...I do wonder what the world looks like for them...alas, I will never know. Perhaps in the future some mad scientist will invest cool glasses that allow us to see things we haven't seen before (in terms of colour) and the fashion world will never be the same....who knows what awaits us in the future?

...and speaking of colours I  love to watch birds. I'm always fascinating by how gorgeous they are, especially the colourful ones. Yesterday in the documentary I told you about they showed a bird that has feather pigmentation that comes off when soaked in water- luckily the natural water does her no harm ( the bird lives in rain forest), but if you dipped her feather in the pipe water, the colour would come off....Interesting how everything in nature is so perfectly balanced.

Once I read ( I think it was in Dylan Dog's comic books from all places) that bird watching is one of the most fascinating things you can do, but if you do it too much, you might go crazy. What animals do you love to watch? Cats are on my list too...if there is an animal that can be call stylish, it has to come from a feline family.

When in city, the most common bird to see is a pigeon. I appreciate them much more after I had watched a documentary called "pigeon genius" on the TV ...and besides pigeons are so romantic. I totally understand why the characters from Hakawati ( a novel by Rabih Alameddine you don't want to miss) are so crazy about them. Btw Hakawati  means a storyteller in you know any good hakawati?

This is what I wore the day before yesterday...This tee is a gift from my granny...isn't she the best? She was my favourite hakawati when I was a little girl. I adored stories about her childhood.

Jučer sam gledala neki zanimljivi dokumentarac o bojama na televiziji (hrt-u) i stvarno je zanimljivo kako puno životinja vidi više boja ( i na različite načine) nego mi...baš me zanima kako one to vide, ali nažalost neću nikada saznati...možda jednog dana neki znastvenik izmisli posebne naočale koje bi nam to omogućile i onda se modni svijet zauvijek promijeni... Uglavnom, bila je (u dokumenarcu) čak i neka ptica koja živi u prašumi, a kojoj se boja sa perja otapa ako ga stavite u vodu- ali ne u kišnicu, takva prirodna voda nije dovoljno lužnata da joj skine boje- zanimljivo kako je u prirodi sve savršeno usklađeno....a govoreći o bojama i pticama, volim oboje...promatranje ptica ( i drugih životinja) mi je jedna od najdražih zanimacija...

U gradu najčešće od ptica vidimo golubove, riđan ( da znam da se taj izraz najviše rabi za konja, ali mi je simpatičan) sa prve fotografije mi se baš dopao....Golubovi su tako romantične, a i jako pametne ptice ( što sam otkrila gledajući još jedan dobar dokumetarac Pigeon genious)....skroz razumijem one likove u Hakawatiju koji su bili zaljubljeni u njih...a tek ona slatka golubica, možda moj najdraži lik (aj neka netko pročita taj roman da imam sa kime pričati o njemu, molim vas;)

a sada, današnja kombinacija...majica je poklon od bake:) ona je moj najdraži hakawati:)

Whether you're longing for spring to come asap or not, one thing is certain-  winter is not going  anywhere. The cold weather is not going to end up anytime soon, not in this part of the world. It's snowing in most of Europe and the weather is quite cold. What are we do to if not dress appropriately, and that means dress as warmly as possible? Not long ago I published a post about winter accessories that keep us warm. Today I'll be talking about one of them in particular and that would be the oversized scarf.  I've always loved big scarves and I have quite a few of them, some vintage, some I made myself. Lately, however it occurred to me that I should get one of those new trendy oversized ones, the kind that you can use as blanket. You know how much I love colour, right? Well, beige is no exception so I was happy to see it listed as one of the biggest trends this season. I picked up this beige oversized scarf for next to nothing in New Yorker. It's super cozy and …


Everyone knows that flowers make for a great prop, something very useful in these visual days. Moreover, in this time of social media, we are all looking for good photography props, aren't we? Bloggers, influences and what not, everyone wants to make their photographs pop. Flowers are a great way to do just that. Dried flowers are even better, because you don't have to worry about their expiry date. Dried flowers are also a great way to recycle (when you make your own) and preserve memories. I've been drying flowers for quite some time and there is really nothing to it. You can also buy dried flowers (or even fresh ones if you prefer). They are simply a perfect addition to flat lay photography.
Today I'll speak about creating 3D dresses on fashion illustrations. Now, you don't have to know how to do fashion illustration to try your hand at this. You can trace some of the fashion templates available online (be sure to make sure the author is o.k with that) or you c…


Writing this post took forever, and not just because I'm not exactly sure how many books I read in 2018. I did try to keep a track on goodreads but sometimes I forget to add books that I'm reading there. I'd say that I probably read around 80 books last year, give or take a dozen. I do love to read, as readers of my blog might already know or suspect. Here comes a list of my last year favourites. The list is written in no particular order. The links are not affiliated ( I tried to join Amazon affiliate program in the past but they rejected me saying that my blog doesn't have enough views so yeah it's all regular links). In cases of classics the books are linked to sites such as Project Gutenberg or Oxford University where you can find free copies. In case of modern works, I linked them up to my own blog posts (when relevant), Wikipedia or the authors' sites. 

I had a pretty good reading year, I'd say. Some of the books I read I actually discovered in my ow…
