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. 


  1. Proprio vero! Bellissima questa illustrazione!

  4. Lovely pictures, I like the selection of colors :)

  5. czasami mnie zaskakujesz! :)

  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.

  7. Amazing post and perfect pictures

  10. Such great illustration, you got talent!

  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

  12. Bella l'illustrazione, hai ragione!

  13. Dobro rečeno, slažem se s tobom :) i super mi je crtež!

  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@

  15. cool!

  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

  24. Great illustration!! Love it.

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…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
