Sketch and DIY of the day / Skica i DIY dana

We always think we know better, but what is there to do but believe that someday we will really know better.
Uvijek mislimo kako znamo bolje, ali zaista što nam preostaje nego vjerovati da ćemo jednog dana zaista i znati bolje.

Hello! Today I'm sharing one sketch that is accompanied by a message and a DIY. The message on the sketch is pretty self explanatory. We often think we know better but then we realize that we don't. However, life is all about learning from our mistakes so there is nothing else to do but to try again and believe that some day we'll truly know better.

As far as DIY goes, it's pretty simple. I  have sewn these little hearts onto this striped top yesterday because I wanted to cover up little holes that were beginning to form on it. You know when you manage to find a cotton t-shirt that is really made from cotton and then you wash it a few times only to discover those annoying little holes forming? Well, here is a solution for it. A solution that is very low cost and not time consuming at all...In fact, all you need is a needle, thread, a bit of material and about five minutes of your time.

Zdravo! Danas s vama dijelim jednu skicu praćenu s porukom i uradi sam projektom. Poruka na skici je dosta jasna sama od sebe. Često mislimo kako znamo bolje ali onda shvatimo da nije tako. Međutim u životu učimo od pogrješaka tako da nemamo zapravo drugo rješenje nego pokušati ponovo i vjerovati da ćemo jednog dana doista znati bolje.

Što se tiče uradi sam projekta, jako je jednostavan. Jučer sam ušila ova mala srca na prugastu majicu jer sam željela pokriti rupice koje su se počele formirati na majici. Znate kada uspijete pronaći pamučnu majicu koja je stvarno pamučna i onda je operete par put samo da biste otkrili te iritirajuće rupice. Evo rješenja! Rješenje koje je vrlo povoljno i ne oduzima puno vremena. Zapravo sve što vam treba je igla, konac, malo materijala i oko pet minuta vašeg vremena. 


  1. I love the DIY, very creative. I have been thinking of doing something similar lately. I want to sew a huge heart onto a jumper. The illustration is very meaningful.

  26. Your sketch is very cool and I will take your message even deeper because I like it. What if, before we are born, we are allowed to give out future selves challenges in life in hopes they teach us what we need to know. Too deep for the comment section? Sounds like me :)

  27. Your DIY is not only an excellent way to cover holes, but it's a great personal touch even without holes. It's not easy to get better.

  28. Majica izgleda predobro! Sviđa mi se kombinacija prugica i jedva je čekam vidjeti na tebi! :) Poruka dana mi se sviđa također, istina...

How to style a gold metallic dress for transitional weather? Today I have an outfit proposal that answers that question. I styled my metallic wrap dress with brown boots, a white and brown bag and a tartan blazer. The blazer has some gold treads so I thought it would be a good match for the dress. Besides, I like the idea of pairing a metallic dress with tartan. It looks more interesting that way. I was never one to shy away from patterns. This outfit can be worn both as everyday and night wear. The golden touches make this outfit look more dressed up, and heelless boots make it appropriate for day wear. If you want to glam an outfit like this one, all you need is a pair of high heels. 
Metallic dress looks more tricky than it really is. Styling a metallic dress, for example, isn't that hard. As always look for colours and tones that suit your skin tone. Pair your metallic item with other items you like to wear or go for a full metallic look.  If you don't feel comfortable en…


Is anything as lovely as a sunny spring day? I missed reading outdoors, I can tell you that. Sitting on a bench on a nice spring day, with a nice book in one's lap, now that has to be one of the greatest pleasures in life. Speaking of reading, March has been a good reading month so far. As loyal I am to my favourite writers, I also love to discover new ones. I try to read at least one new author every month. This March I read two American authors for the first time: Kurt Vonnegut and John Green. Naturally I heard about them before. Both of them are quite well know, but this March marked my first introduction to these two. They are not the only 'new' writers I tried this month, but more about that some other time. Earlier this month, I read Kurt's Player Piano and Green's Fault in Our Stars. I liked Player Piano much more that Fault in Our Stars but I was kind of expecting that. I'm happy I read both, though. It is just that Kurt's writing is more my cup of…


One of more puzzling trends for Spring must be: the bath robe trend. It exists in many shapes and forms. Just like regular bath robes, these coats are made of different materials and come in different styles. Bath robe coats can give different vibes, from luxurious to relaxed ones. These bath robe coats sometimes come in silk and satin, while at other times they are made of wool or cotton. There was some confusion when the bath robe coat first appeared on the runaway. It was actually a few years ago, this is not the first season that it was introduced. However, this season we're seeing it around quite a bit, with a lot of celebrities choosing to wear this trend.

What to make of this trend? Will the bath robe trend become the new trench coat? It is hard to say. Nevertheless, it is easy to see the appeal of the bath robe trend. Coats cuts in this style are typically very cozy and comfy. If they are made from warmer materials, they make for perfect transitional pieces.  If you'r…
