DIY of the day: fascinator / ukras za kosu

Step no. 1: glue the coffee beans to faux leather and decorate with nailpolish and/or acrylic paints/ prvi korak: zaljepiti zrna kave za eko kožu i ukrasiti lakom za nokte i/ili akrilnim bojama

For the next and the last step you will need  a bit of thread and a needle/ za zadnji i posljednji korak trebati će vam igla i konac

step no.2: sew the fascinator to the hairpin/ drugi korak: ušijte ukras za špangicu


I won't get into why I usually have extra coffee beans around the house, ok? Indeed, to explain how I drink my coffee would take too much time. The point is that I usually do have some coffee beans (the ones that are not deemed good enough to end up in my coffee cup) and they inspired me to make a head fascinator....a little bit of glue, a piece of faux leather, one hairpin...and  voilà!

Neću ulaziti u to zašto obično imam viška zrna kave kući, previše bi si vremena oduzela da objašnjavam neke svoje navike, nego ću samo reći što mi je palo na pamet da napravim s onima koja mi se nisu dovoljno svidjela da bi završila u mojoj kavi. Napravila sam ukras za kosu! Malo ljepila, komad eko kože, jedna špangica za kosu...i eto ga ili kako moji otočani kažu: eccola:) 


  1. A creative and interesting D.I.Y project. A great way to turn your old coffee beans into a fashion project.

  2. It's a very beautifull DIY.

  3. It looks quite interesting, Ivana! You are very imaginative, I believe you've got a million ideas in your head. I have a lot of extra coffee beans in my house too, but I have never doing anything from them, except making a cup of fresh coffee:)

    Enjoy the weekend Ivana!

  16. Kako je ovo fenomenalno! :) Nikad nisam ni pomislila da bi zrna kafe mogla da imaju drugu funkciju. Nosila bih to bez razmišljanja mada uz rizik da zrna ne ostanu na mestu jer kafi ne mogu da odolim :)

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
