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

Time for me to cover another Croatian top destination: Trogir. Yes, today I'm taking you to Trogir city. Trogir has one of the best preserved Romanesque- Gothic complexes in Europe. The city can boost with numerous historical landmarks. It has a high concentration of historical churches, towers, structures and a fortress. Literally, every where you look, you'll be beholding history. 
This charming historical city is located on a small island between Croatian coastline and island Čiovo. It is located only 27 kilometers from Split city. Moreover, it's only a five minute drive from the airport Split. In fact, airport Split is closer to Trogir then it is to Split city. If you're visiting this area or landing to Split airport, don't miss  the chance to visit this little city. You won't regret it, I promise. If you want to see how this place looks like in summer time, feel free to visit this Trogir travel post of mine.

What can I say about Trogir that I haven't s…


I can't really attend fashion weeks because I work full time, but with the help of the internet I get to follow fashion weeks digitally. One of the benefits of living in digital times, I guess. If you remember, I have already shared a number of fashion illustrations inspired by  spring/summer fashion weeks on this little blog of mine ( Valentino Spring Collection 20191 & 2, Zuhair Murad Spring Ready To Wear 2019 collection1 & 2Louis Vuitton Spring Collection 2019 ). Please don't click the links to buy the illustrations, they won't lead you anymore as my art store was lost and it will take me a while to manually remove all the links (I'll explain this later on in this post, for now let's concentrate on positive things like this cute new fashion painting I'll share with you and the design that inspired it).
 I was a bit late with catching with Croatian fashion week because I've been busy with work. About a week or so ago, I finally found the time…



As I promised in my last post, my description of  wonderful Trogir city continues. Today I'll show you the city's promenade, its walls and a historical fortress Kamerlengo. We'll start with the latter, as it is one of the main attractions. Castle and fortress Kamerlengo was designed and constructed in the fifteenth century by a local Croatian builder and sculptor known as Martin Radoj. Martin also worked on some of the Gothic elements of Trogir city cathedral and later on in life he was entrusted with the construction of Trogir port. The fortress was commissioned by the Republic of Venice, hence its name 'camelengo ' that is an Italian version of chamberlain. I didn't go inside of  Kamerlengo fortress this time because I've been there before so I just enjoyed observing it from the outside. Besides the Kamerlengo castle, today I'll also show you the city walls and other details from Trogir. Enjoy. 

Once again, here is a li…
