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 ! :)

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…


Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

Hello, darlings! I'm back two fashion illustration of one Zuhair Murad dress. This blue gown is so beautiful I simply had to illustrate it twice. It makes me think of the sea, the mermaids and basically the good old 'day at the beach' vibes. There is something so liberating about spending time by the ocean, isn't there? I grew up in a coastal town, and I do miss the sea terribly. However, that is surely not the only reason why I loved this dress so much. You know, when I think Zuhair Murad the first thing that comes to my mind is- haute couture. I feel he is one of those designers who were simply meant to make couture. Do you know what I mean? Murad's designs are always so exquisite, glam and elegant. I do like his ready-to-wear collections, but there is just something about his haute couture collections that makes them stand out in the sea of others. 
 I already illustrated a dress by this designer (here), and with the fashion week on its way, I opted for somethi…
