There is that moment when we feel at peace, when everything feels so right and perfect.

At times we do find beauty in our lives. Whether it is the wind that plays with our hair or the sun that touches us ever so gently…There is that moment when we feel at peace, when everything feels so right and perfect.  A moment of clarification.

 We may find it in a smile of an unknown person …you never know where it could come from …This beauty… the most precious thing in the world. When we do find it we must treasure it. Recognize it. Cherish it in every corner of our soul.

Enjoy the moment because beauty cannot be locked in a box. It just comes out of nowhere….a moment of happiness and bliss…and just like that it is gone…yet  in one way it is always with us. Here to stay. Gift that we had received. Unexpected. Unwrapped. Unpolished. Unique.  A gift. A feeling that makes us realize that life is a gift or rather that it can be a gift. Life is what we make of it.

We may plot, scheme and we may try our hardest…but it won't come. Happiness is not a product, it is not something that we can buy or in some sense even deserve. It comes when we're ready for it or rather we can see it when we truly open our eyes….a gift. Gift that we had received. Unexpected. Unwrapped. Unpolished. Unique.  A gift.

  9. Znaš da često osjetim takav trenutak mira, kad se vozim u tramvaju i povjetarac pirka, ili kad sam u prirodi i jednostavno osjetim savršen mir.

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…


Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…


One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
