This and that /Ovo i ono

I'm going to start this post with some photographs that I have taken today (on my way to the supermarket). These flowers really made my day. It was raining most of the day but seeing these flowers reminded me that the spring is almost here. I was thinking whether I should edit these photographs or not but didn't cared for how my signature looked on them, somehow it ruined it for me. I decided not to edit them. With editing it's like with make up. Less is often more and if you don't know what you're doing better keep it simple.

Početi ću ovaj post sa nekoliko fotografija koje sam uslikala danas (opet šetajući do supermarketa). Behar me stvarno oraspoložio. Kiša je padala je veći dio dana, ali kada sam vidjela behar, odmah mi je bilo lakše. Znam da će skoro proljeće. Razmišljala sam o tome da obradim ove fotografije, ali sam odustala jer mi se nije sviđalo kako izgleda moj potpis nekako mi upropasti sve, a nisam ih nikako ni obrađivala. S obradom fotografija je kao sa šminkom. Manje je više i ako nisi sigurna što radiš, drži se jednostavnosti.

Beauty is to be found everywhere....

if we look close enough

you have to admire the work ethics of a bee. The rain does not stop it!

almost spring

I haven't really shared any photos of the meals I prepare yet. Odd perhaps taken the fact I prepare two to three meals every day (and lots of desserts). The reason I guess is that I never use a recipe. I always improvise when I'm cooking. For me it is a matter of inspiration and spur of the moment thing. When people ask me how I have prepared something, all I can do is tell them the ingredients. It's not that I don't like to share my 'cooking secrets', it's just that I don't remember how I prepared something half of the time, especially if it is a dish I have practically invented. Is that the case with you? Or do you prefer to follow the recipe? Would you like to see more photographs of food on this blog? Sometimes I'm not sure what to include in my posts. There are so many things that I'm interested in and would care to talk about...still I would like some structure. So, what is your verdict? Should food become a part of this blog or not?
salmon, Mediterranean spices and olive oil

cake with dry fruits (a bit of chocolate and cream) on top

cannelloni (filling- a mix of pork and beef+ salsa,  béchamel sauce on top)

little chocolate cake


  1. I love that tree!, i have a lot of that on my neighborhood, love flowers! it's so delicate and femenine!

  2. amazing pics and wow that food looks delicious!
    New post

  3. great photographyyy :)
    There's a giveaway on my blog. Hoping you could join :)

  4. oh, I'm impressed by those photographs. Those blooming trees look even more gorgeous against the leaden-grey skies background. You are right, the spring is almost here) I can't wait to see the real Spring in action)
    By the way, I think food is a great thin to write about, moreover, I want to make a suggestion. If you have time, maybe you would write some posts about traditional food in your country, it would be really interesting to read)

    1. In Croatia the food varies trough region. In Dalmatia we have what could be called typically Mediterranean food. I will gladly share some traditional dishes.

  5. Nature is simply wonderful. I love it !

  6. Ima li išta lepše nego kad pocveta behar!? :) Ovde je drveće još uvek ogoljeno i ne mogu da dočekam proleće...
    I podržavam sve ideje o hrani ;)

  7. Stunning ! :)

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…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
