Al cuore non si comanda




To have a heart is both a blessing and a curse.  Sometimes it feels more like a blessing, sometimes more like a curse. You cannot command your heart, the proverb says. That much is true. It doesn't mean we should let the heart command us in everything we do. Like with everything in life, it's about finding balance. Plus, the heart can be a heartless little dictator! Let it rule your life and you might lose yourself while following its every caprice. Forsake it and risk loosing your humanity....Perhaps it is best to do its job while you do your own...and  I guess hurting is in the job description of a heart...and I guess we just have to endure it. 

Imati srce je i kletva i blagoslov. Ponekad se čini više kao blagoslov, ponekad više kao kletva. Ne možeš srcu zapovijedati...tako kaže poslovica. Toliko je istina. No, to ne znači da srce nama treba zapovijedati. Kao i sa svime u životu, važno je pronaći ravnotežu. Uz to, srce zna biti mali bezdušni diktator! Dopusti da ti vlada životom i možeš se izgubiti u tome da udovoljavaš svakom njegovim hiru....Zanemari ga i riskiraš gubitak ljudskosti. Možda je najbolje pustiti ga da radi svoj posao dok ti radiš svoj....a čini mi se da je u njegovom opisu posla da boli i da tu ništa ne možemo osim to preboljeti.

  6. " I guess hurting is in the job description of a heart"... This feels like a post with spaces between the words. If only feelings could be more subject to our control; though then compassion wouldn't rise and, as you say, the risk would be loss of humanity.

  11. Mali bezdušni diktator :) Da, uglavnom, nažalost. Ali tako je kako je, neko ima veću kontrolu, neko manju, ja sam ova druga i to nije najsrećnija opcija, ali mislim da nije ni ova prva, kao što kažeš, važna je ravnoteža.
    Crtež je pravo malo savršenstvo! <3

  14. Ja sam kao mladja pokusavala zanemariti srce i nije nikako ispalo dobro. Danas jedino vjerujem srcu i ne idem u vecini slucajeva protiv njega. Neki ljudi su um a neki vise osjecaji... nikada nije pametno pokusavati biti ono sta nisi.
    Crtez je krasan@

  16. Stunning picture doll, and I agree...having a heart is both a blessing and a curse. It can bring us joy and at the same time have so much pain too. But, I guess it is what makes us human. Hope you have a great weekend doll xx

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
