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.

  3. Great post dear...lovely pics..:-)

  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 :)

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
