DIY advent wreath/ adventski vijenac

My sister in law made this advent wreath. Her dad made made the foundation (or base however you want to call it) for it (by attaching two pieces of  wood), the rest she had made herself. She had used two vine glasses as candle holders. I think it looks amazing, very modern and original. I like the fact that she used pink candles (and decorated them herself) instead of the usual red ones. With a little spray and imagination (most of the DIY things she already had at home) it is really fascinating what you can do.

Ovaj adventski vijenac je napravila moja nevjesta. Postolje je od drva i njega je učvrstio njen otac, ostalo je sve sama napravila. Dvije čaše za vino poslužile su kao svijećnjaci. Mislim da odlično izgleda, jako moderno i orginalno. Sviđa mi se što je upotrijebila roze svijeće (i sama ih ukrasila) umjesto uobičajenih crvenih. Sa malo spreja i mašte (većinu ovih ukrasa imali smo kod kuće) stvarno je zanimljivo što se može napraviti.


  1. Preslatko! :) Baš sam htela da napravim nešto slično :)

  2. Very nice DIY.

  3. Tua cognata è stata bravissima Ivana, è davvero molto carino!:) Un bacio!

  4. I ja sam svoj sama napravila, sav je crvenim tonovima :)

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.

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

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.
