How to make a Valentine's day vase from an old detergent bottle? / Kako napraviti vazu za dan zaljubljenih od boce za deterđent?

Happy Valentine's day! For me it served as a good excuse for some DIY projects and home decoration activities as you will be able to see if you scroll down. Later in the day (or tomorrow) I'll show you the final arrangements. For now, just take a look how these old plastic bottles turned into something romantic.

Sretno Valentinovo! Za mene je poslužilo kao dobra izlika za neke uradi sam projekte i pravljenje ukrasa za dom, kao što ćete vidjeti ako produžite dalje. Kasnije danas (ili sutra) pokazati ću vam dovršene aranžmane, za sada pogledajte kako su stare plastične boce  postale nešto romantično.

  6. Dear Ivana, as usual I´m impressed about your creativity! Because your idea is really good, why to throw such bottles in the waste when the can be so nice after some DIY?

    Hope you had a great Valentine´s day, not only caused by your decoration :) I didn´t celebrate this day because it is not usual here in Bavaria in my generation to celebrate Valentine´s.

Sustainable fashion is such a hot topic right now, I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into a fashion revolution. More and more people are trying to minimize their carbon print by re-wearing their clothes and shopping their closets. One good way to build a functioning wardrobe you'll love to shop is to make sure you have a couple of essential items in it. These basic pieces can help you shop your closet more easily and become more sustainable in your fashion choices. A denim skirt is one such classical and essential item.  Today I'll show you ten ways to style a denim skirt. I had this particular denim skirt for a couple of years, it's by Croatian denim brand Amadeus (not sponsored) that I can recommend for its quality denim. For me this skirt is one of those items that are season-less and by that I mean those clothing items that can be worn in any season. If you're creative enough, you can figure out a way to wear most of your clothes in any season, but some ite…


Yesterday I finally took the the time to watch (and listen) to the Dolce & Gabbana Autumn/Winter 2019/2020 collection. The runaway show was organized in retro style and lasted about half and hour. Instead of music, it featured a British narrator who commented on the designs in the old style (that is how fashion shows used to be presented, narrated instead of accompanied by the music). Anyhow, I found the both the narration and the narrator charming. The fact that the narrator pointed out all the materials used was quite helpful. The models seemed to move quite quickly, but there were 127 looks displayed so the show took a quite some time to finish. It took me twice as long to study the photographs as to see the show. The trend analysis took even more time. However, that time was not spent in vain for I was finally inspired to ponder my autumn and winter outfits. What do you know? D&G Autumn/Winter collection gave me plenty of inspiration for the colder season ahead. I don'…


A surprising number of people are under the false impression that you have to spend a lot of money in order to dress in a sustainable way. The good news is that sustainable fashion does't have to be expensive or difficult.  You can help the environment just by shopping your closet more. As easy as that! Shopping your closet and taking good care of your clothing are wonderful and easy ways to be more sustainable. Do you know what is the best thing about these two ecologically friendly fashion strategies? They don't cost you anything. By maximizing the usage of items in your closet and learning how to properly care for your clothing items, you can both help the environment and your personal finances. I already addressed this topic in my last post, when I showed you fourteen ways to wear one basic item. Relying on our wardrobe essentials is such an effortless way to be more green in our fashion choices. 
Take this white pencil skirt for example. It belonged to my mother when she…
