Beauty review / Recenzija kozmetičkog proizvoda

Catrice eye brow set was a Christmas gift. I have been using it since I have got it (almost 3 months, long enough to form my opinion). I really like that it contains tweezers (functioning ones), a brush and a mirror. It's terribly practical to have all that in one product.

Catrice set za obrve je bio božični poklon. Koristim ga otkako sam ga dobila (skoro tri  mjeseca, sasvim dovoljno za stjecanje mišljenja). Sviđa mi se što se unutar pakiranja nalazi i zrcalo, pinceta (začuđujuće dobro radi) te kist. Jako je praktično što je sve u jednom.

I've found it easy to use. Whether you go for a subtle or a dramatic look, you'll be satisfied,  both are quite easy to achieve. It doesn't stay on all day, the intensity does fade  a bit after about 5 hours. As you can see, there are two shades. I prefer the darker ones as my eyebrows are black, but the blonds I know have told them they find the seemingly grey one quite sadisfactory.

Lako je za korištenje. Lako se postiže i dramatičan i suptilan izgled obrva, pa što god vam je draže, biti ćete zadovoljni. Ne stoji baš cijeli dan, intenzivitet dosta oslabi nakon nekih pet sati. Kao što možete vidjeti, dva su sjenila. Meni više odgovara tamnije jer su mi obrve crne, ali od plavokosih sam čula da su zadovoljne sa ovim naizgled sivkastim.

I hope that was enough of photographs. All in all, I'm happy with this product. The price is affordable and it is available here (I've seen that some American beauty bloggers complain that it is available only in Europe. I hope that will change and that they will start shipping)

Nadam se da je to bilo dovoljno fotografija. Sve u svemu zadovoljna sam s ovim proizvodom. Cijena je pristupačna, ali vidjela sam da se neke američke blogerice žale da nije dostupan tamo nego samo u Europi. Možda će se i to promijeniti.


  1. Thank you so much for the sweet words <3 I'm also perceptive, I see more than I want to.

  2. I like the colors. I have a similar one from ELF that works really well with darker hair colors. Your brows are really nice, btw.

  3. Ciao Ivana! L'ho anche io e mi piace davvero molto. Lo uso sempre e mi trovo benissimo. Sei molto carina nelle foto! Un bacione!

  4. A good eyebrow set in one necessity! Its sad to had sparse eyebrows with good eye makeup!!! This one looks good. I just use dark brown and black eyeshadows of my Coastal Scents Mirage Palette as a substitute!
    Anyways, thanks for you sweet comment on my blog. I was really surprised by the comment you left here.
    How come you know of Hindu mythology???
    Answering your question there - Yes, that occurs in the Hindu epic, Mahabharata.
    The lady was Kunti who was given the blessing to have children by any 5 gods!
    She must have waited till marriage, to invoke the gods to have child.
    But out of curiosity she invoked Lord Surya (Sun God) the very next day and gave birth to a son, Karna.
    Since she was unmarried, she gave up the child by letting it afloat on a basket in river.

  5. super mi se čini taj catrice set :) ja imam essence, ali iskreno ni ne koristim ga, nešto sam probavala, pa mi se nije svidio na meni, nekako se baš uočava da ga ima, a ja to ne volim. tebi ovaj super pristaje i preslatka si sa pletenicama :) :*

  6. I love post reviews.... I can see this product is great =)

  7. Baš ti dobro stoji :) Ja verujem da bi mi odgovarao taj svetliji ton, probaću prvom prilikom :)

  8. This looks like something I just bought! But a different brand and it didn't come with tweezers. That's such a cool idea to have a tweezer in tis product.

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.

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
