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

HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED BEIGE SCARF: 2 OUTFIT PROPOSALS

Whether you're longing for spring to come asap or not, one thing is certain-  winter is not going  anywhere. The cold weather is not going to end up anytime soon, not in this part of the world. It's snowing in most of Europe and the weather is quite cold. What are we do to if not dress appropriately, and that means dress as warmly as possible? Not long ago I published a post about winter accessories that keep us warm. Today I'll be talking about one of them in particular and that would be the oversized scarf.  I've always loved big scarves and I have quite a few of them, some vintage, some I made myself. Lately, however it occurred to me that I should get one of those new trendy oversized ones, the kind that you can use as blanket. You know how much I love colour, right? Well, beige is no exception so I was happy to see it listed as one of the biggest trends this season. I picked up this beige oversized scarf for next to nothing in New Yorker. It's super cozy and …

HOW TO MAKE 3D FASHION ILLUSTRATION DRESSES WITH DRY FLOWERS?

Everyone knows that flowers make for a great prop, something very useful in these visual days. Moreover, in this time of social media, we are all looking for good photography props, aren't we? Bloggers, influences and what not, everyone wants to make their photographs pop. Flowers are a great way to do just that. Dried flowers are even better, because you don't have to worry about their expiry date. Dried flowers are also a great way to recycle (when you make your own) and preserve memories. I've been drying flowers for quite some time and there is really nothing to it. You can also buy dried flowers (or even fresh ones if you prefer). They are simply a perfect addition to flat lay photography.
Today I'll speak about creating 3D dresses on fashion illustrations. Now, you don't have to know how to do fashion illustration to try your hand at this. You can trace some of the fashion templates available online (be sure to make sure the author is o.k with that) or you c…

BEST BOOKS AND FAV WRITERS OF 2018

Writing this post took forever, and not just because I'm not exactly sure how many books I read in 2018. I did try to keep a track on goodreads but sometimes I forget to add books that I'm reading there. I'd say that I probably read around 80 books last year, give or take a dozen. I do love to read, as readers of my blog might already know or suspect. Here comes a list of my last year favourites. The list is written in no particular order. The links are not affiliated ( I tried to join Amazon affiliate program in the past but they rejected me saying that my blog doesn't have enough views so yeah it's all regular links). In cases of classics the books are linked to sites such as Project Gutenberg or Oxford University where you can find free copies. In case of modern works, I linked them up to my own blog posts (when relevant), Wikipedia or the authors' sites. 



I had a pretty good reading year, I'd say. Some of the books I read I actually discovered in my ow…
