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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
