O jednoj mladosti .....About one youth

Today I'm sharing (and translating) one of my all the favourite songs that came to life in 1973. Sang by a woman, who is for me not one in a thousand, but one in a billion. One and only, Josipa Lisac.

Danas sa vama dijelim jednu od svojih najdražih pjesama. Pjeva je pjevačica koja je za mene , ne jedna u tisuću, nego jedna u milijun. Jedna i jedina, Josipa Lisac.

                                   O jednoj mladosti .....About one youth 

Jedna mladost, jedan svijet nade                                             One youth, one world of hope
Raste tiho u srcu tvom                                                              Grows quietly in your heart
Drugi  za  ovaj svijet grade                                                      Others build this world for you
S malo prave istine u tom                                                         With only a bit of truth in it

Pričaju ti priče te                                                                     They tell you these stories
I svaka ima svoj sretan kraj                                                      And each of them has its happy ending
Al prešućuju da taj svijet krade                                                But they withheld that this world steals
Baš tvoga sunca sjaj                                                                 Your very own sun's shine

Jedna mladost, jedan san sreće                                                One youth, one dream of happiness
Al do nje još dalek, dug put                                                   But to it leads a distant and far away path
I dok srce na taj put kreće                                                       And while the heart takes that path
U svijet ocvao i žut                                                                 In the world decaying and yellow

Odjednom ćeš shvatiti sve                                                   Suddenly, you'll comprehend everything
Kako nigdje nema plamena tvog                                         How your flame is nowhere to be found
Poput mrtve rijeke svijet teče                                              Like a dead river the world flows
Bez cilja svoga                                                                     Without its purpose

             Tko zna, možda na me čeka neki drugi svijet                       

Who knows, maybe there is another world waiting for me

Tko zna i u mraku katkad nikne divan cvijet

Who knows, even in the dark sometimes a wonderful flower springs

Možda, tko zna, jedna od sretnijih

Maybe, who can tell, one of the more fortunates one

Jedna od tisuću

One in a thousand

Bit ću baš ja

                                                                       Shall be just me

                                                                       Tko to zna

                                                                      Who knows

  16. Pesma je predivna <3
    Odiševila me je prva slika i ta minđuša u kombinaciji sa messy punđom. I uopšte ta cela kombinacija u jednoj od mojih najdražih boja. Prelepo! :)

  17. There are such songs which are so meaningful for us, full of wisdom and memories:) I have never heard this song, but I do like it. You are doing a great job with the translation, no wonder, your English is very well.

  18. Beautiful song and beautiful look sweety! Love the color of your coat mixed with pops of red :)

  19. Wow, beautiful wordings. I am glad that in the music world where songs just simply don't make sense anymore, some still have meanings to them. I love your baby blue and touch of red look!

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…

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…
