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

  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 ! :)

As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…

Fashion Illustration Friday: Inspired by Colours of Autum

Time for another Fashion Illustration Friday talk. We'll talk autumn and share some new autumn inspired fashion illustrations & outfits. Autumn is a season with one of the most beautiful colour palettes. Just think about all those gorgeous gold and red leaves! Even the fruits of Autumn are visually stunning, for example the delicious and juicy fruits such as pomegranates and grapes. With so much to appeal to our senses, it's hard not to be appreciative of autumn. It is a stunning season indeed, so small wonder I was inspired to create some fashion art. Scroll down to see and read more. 

Besides enjoying the colours of autumn, I sure love wearing colour in autumn, and that's what I'll write about today. Whether we're talking about accessories or clothes, a bit of colour can take us a long way. Here are some illustrated & photographed colour combos to consider.

Is it too early to start reaching for those festive …

How To Style A Grey Sweater Dress in Autumn? Outfit Proposal of the Day

I was just thinking how grey doesn't always get the credit it deserves. Sure, there are many enthusiasts of the colour grey, but even among those of us who like grey, there are many lessons to be learned. One of the mistakes we make when styling grey items is to forget that grey does come in so many shades. It's kind of obvious, but it's easy to focus on the classical grey tones and forget to explore this colour in all its complexity. Not to mention that styling the lighter shades of grey can be a great way to refresh our autumn/winter wardrobe. Sometimes it does seem to me that grey is one of the most underestimated colours out there. However, that all might change as grey has been trending a lot lately. For example, you can have a look at some of my runaways picks bellow. 
Neutral outfits composed of lighter shades are a great way to stay away from the typically dark outfit combos. I'm not saying there is anything wrong with dark …
