When I used to do swimming in high school, my favourite thing was to stare at the ceiling (while doing back stroke obviously) and enjoy the silence. It gave me the feeling of both security and calmness. Sure, I love swimming but there was something magical about looking at the glass ceiling (such was and I guess still is the ceiling of Split's city pool.) and feeling immersed in  silence and light. Today I will be almost silent (and won't write too much). I will just leave you with these five illustrations and wish you a lovely week!

Kada sam trenirala plivanje u srednjoj školi, najdraži dio mi je bio gledati u strop (leđno plivanje očito) i uživati u tišini, to mi je davalo osjećaj sigurnosti i mirnoće. Naravno, volim plivanje ali bilo je nešto magično u tom gledanju u stakleni strop (takav je bio i valjda još je strop splitskog gradskog bazena) i osjećaju uronjenosti u svjetlost i tišinu. Zato ću danas biti skoro pa skroz tiha (neću puno pisati) i ostaviti vas sa samo pet ilustracija. Ugodan tjedan!

  5. Ja sam morala ici na plivanje radi krive kicme pa mi je bila muka i tlaka jer nas je bila gomila i bazenu a do istog sam od doma imala pet dana jahanja :) Ali da, plivanje je divno, pogotovo na moru :) Ugodan ti tj i cestitke na stazu, i to je pocetak!

  6. Prva mi se najviše sviđa :)) Joj ja nikad nisam bila sportski tip, i dan danas mi je najdraže samo plutati u moru :)

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…
