after the rain, comes the sun/ nakon kiše dolazi sunce

After the rain comes the sun. Today was sunny that's for sure. I enjoyed having cofee with my mum and nephew and taking a few snapshots in the process. My nephew came up with an ingenious alternative ending for Snow White yesterday (which as you can imagine made us laugh many times today). Apperantly my little nephew got tired of damsels in distress and decided that the prince will walk pass the sleeping Snow White completely ignoring her. Why? to go off and marry the evil queen..."and they lived happily ever after",or so he claims. Truth be told he heard the editer verson of the faity tale from me (the one in which the Snow White is only sleeping) but still interesting that he favours the stepmother (she is more beautiful then Snow white, he claims Why? I'm not sure he hasn't seen any cartoon or film yet). 

The funny thing is that I remember prefering the evil queen when I was a child but I think that was because of the cartoon I had seen (can't remember which one ) in which the stepmother had been a gorgeous redhead.  Now, that reminds me of that new film version (with Julia Roberts) but I haven't seen that.  I had seen only the one with Charlize Theron ( Snow White and the Huntsman is it called?) and really liked her performance but not much else. How do you feel about fairy tales? and speaking of them....Have you watched any of the episodes of that American series Once Upon A Time? I had watched only one and it had seemed interesting so now I'm thinking about watching the whole series. 


  1. Love the first pic! Lucy

  2. Your nephew is great.. :D And you're beautiful in that dress. What a beautiful sun, sweet it's rainy and cold.. and it will continue all the week! I've got mushrooms growing in the hair!! :( Kisses and hugs <3

  3. I saw that version with Charlize Theron,and as you,did I enjoyed only her acting, nothing more. Once Upon A Time show I've started to watch and I really liked it, but since second season I quit watching it, because the plot gad become too weird and overfilled.
    enjoy your day, to my mind nothing can be better than time spended with our dearest ones))))

  4. Your nephew is definitely very clever! I love wheb kids have such a fantasy and it's interesting to see that he even came up with a completely different ending. I actually really like his ending, would be nice if for once the fairy tales had a different ending than the one with the prince and princess being together! I haven't seen the movie with Julia Roberts yet but I am planning to, I love her as an actress and I hope the movie is worth watching.
    P.S. I love when the sun finally comes out after a long rainy day.

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…
