Better late than never, so here it is- May recap. I don't remember when a month has flown by faster! It has been a busy month and not always in a good way. To be honest I was so stressed about so many things this May and my health wasn't that great, but let's concentrate on the positive things. There were many DIY projects in this month that I really enjoyed, I took a lot of photos and draw more than a few illustrations... at least I can say I certainly wasn't idle. 

Bolje ikad nego nikad pa evo sažetka svibnja. Ne sjećam se kada  mi je  mjesec brže proletio...Bio je to mjesec pun događaja i to ne uvijek na dobar način.  Bila sam stvarno pod stresom zbog puno stvari i zdravlje mi nije bilo najbolje, ali usredotočimo se na lijepe stvari. Bilo je puno napravi/ uradi sam projekata u kojima sam jako uživala , uslikala puno fotografija i nacrtala dosta ilustracija...i barem nikako ne mogu reći da sam bila lijena.


  1. Hi, dear! Great recap. Have a nice end of the week!

  2. Predivne fotke, puno lijepih radova.

  4. Sono curiosa di vedere il vestito rosso!

  5. Nadamo se ljepšem lipnju, što se životnih događanja tiče :) Puno divnih ilustracija i projekata... ja bih izdvojila sliku Splita, divan novi lak, crvene cipele... i da, ona Essence maskara je genijalna (i meni jedna od najdražih) :)

    1. hvala na komentaru i ja se nadam lijepom lipnju:) i malo sporijem tempu kako ljeto dolazi:) da se malo odmorimo.

  6. Looks like it was also a really creative month for you! I can imagine that the time went by really fast because when I'm creative I forget normally completely everything around me - including the time :)

I truly enjoy showing you around Bosnia and Herzegovina. Have you noticed that? You know, there are some really amazing destinations in this country. Today I'll take you to beautiful Blagaj, located only a short drive from Mostar city. Blagaj is a picturesque historical village located in Herzegovina region. This little green river oasis is an increasingly popular tourist destination and not without a reason. Blagaj village has got one of the strongest and most beautiful river springs in Europe. This stunning and potent water spring creates Buna river and is a impressive example of karst river formation. Right next to it you can find a historical dervish house (tekija) that is open all year round. 
The dervish house dates back to the sixteenth century.  It placed right next to the entrance to the cave  where the river Buna springs from and it is an incredible site. The cliff over the cave is a very impressive sight as well! You can even go for a boat ride in the cave and see this…


I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…


Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…
