May recap / sažetak svibnja

1. 2. 3.

I've dedicated a lot of energy to this blog last month. Inspired by Kezzie's BEDIM, I set up a number of challenges for myself, (I managed to published 35 posts last month! is that too much?) some of those projects I'm working on are still to be revealed...let's just say I kept busy in May. I have illustrated 7 fashion bloggers and I'm really happy about that because 'Inspired by' is one feature of my blog that I work really hard on maintaining. Personally I love doing this feature and if your comments are to judge, you love to see it!

Puno sam energije uložila u ovaj blog prošlog mjeseca. Nadahnula me Kezzie i njen izazov objavljivanja svakog dana, pa sam si postavila dosta izazova, objavila sam čak 35 objava prošlog mjeseca (je li to previše?) a na puno projekata još radim i tek ću ih pokazati....recimo samo da sam bila vrijedna ovoga svibnja. Ilusutrirala sam 7 modnih blogerica i drago mi je zbog toga jer se baš trudim održati tu rubriku na blogu. Mene osobno jako veseli, a znam da i vama nije mrska.

Outfit of the month/ Kombinacija mjeseca
DIY project

There have been soooooo many DIY projects going on last month, I'm not going to include them all in this recap, but if you want to see them, you know where you can find them.  In addition, there has been a fair share of writing going on in May, surprising even myself. For the first time ever on this blog, I posted a short story (as a part of link up with +Natalia Lialina )and I've written a rather long article about painting, that really speaks about creative work in general.

Napravila sam jakooo puno uradi sam projekata, neću ih sve uključivati u ovaj sažetak, ali ako ih želite vidjeti, znate gdje ih možete pronaći. Bilo je dosta i pisanja što je i mene samu iznenadilo. Prvi put ikad objavila sam kratku priču (na engleskom kao dio link upa s +Natalia Lialina ) i napisala sam podosta dug članak o slikanju, koji zapravo govori o bilo kakvoj kreativnoj djelatnosti.


  1. nice mix! :*

  2. How beautiful, I love to look at your drawings. I think my fave photo has to be the one with you holding your drawing :)


  3. Hi Ivana, I shall be very honest to say that I wasn't able to catch up with all your posts as you already know. 35 posts in May? Wow! How do you do that? I'm so thankful that you have this post to summarize all the happenings in your life in May. Your outfits collage are my favourite. You are someone who can carry lots of styles and I like how colourful they look in the sunny season.

    I had to google "candice eyebrow set" but I still can't find the correct results to know what exactly this eyebrow set is. And OMG, I know that sort of things that hubby does!!! Mine is like that too. It's like when I tweeze them, he doesn't notice but when he knows I went to do something to my brows by others like threading, waxing, he would say that I shouldn't have done anything. So now we know, just do it. Don't care the men.

    Yup, the eyebrow mapping is the one that you are referring to about calculating proportions. As I'm typing this, lots of strays are already growing under the brows. I simply hate my pores. Why must they be so active?

    I happen to think that your eyebrows belong to those thicker kind that are nicely shaped. Some people are envious of my thicker brows too as that means more free play to shape. However with the technology of eyebrow embroidery in Singapore, I sometimes wished I have sparse eyebrows so I could simply go for those and not worry so much about my brows sprouting out so constantly.

  4. Love this beautiful and amazing recap of your personality Ivana. And the most I love that pic *outfit of the month* of you, it's like you were embracing the whole universe. Happy weekend, girl.

  5. Beautiful post, really interesting...thx for sharing! You look so adorable!

  6. 35 posts during one month it sounds really imposing:) I should say that I don't know how about others, but my comments are always true and sincere, I love examining closely your sketches and drawings inspired by other bloggers. It's always interesting to me:)
    That pink dress of your mother is considered to be the outfit of the month, indeed. I quite agree with you here:) This dress was cut to show your figure to good advantage, I'm only curious how it looked like on your mother:) I'm sure she was looking beautiful in it too!

    1. I wish I had a photo of her so I can see it worn...her size is not the quite the same anymore, so she can't wear it now...too bad, it would me fun to make a comparison. My mother is actually quite taller tham me, I'm 176cm and she is 182cm but somehow all the clothes from her youth suits me just fine.

    2. Too bad you don't have any photographs, but that time not much people took up photography, so no wonder.
      My mom is quite taller than me too, when I was little girl I was trying her clothes on and now she is wearing some of mine:) We have a bit different sense of style, though.

  7. Prelijep post!

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.

What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…


Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature.  As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing.
Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is  not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset.  You can check out her blog here

Hello, darlings! I'm back two fashion illustration of one Zuhair Murad dress. This blue gown is so beautiful I simply had to illustrate it twice. It makes me think of the sea, the mermaids and basically the good old 'day at the beach' vibes. There is something so liberating about spending time by the ocean, isn't there? I grew up in a coastal town, and I do miss the sea terribly. However, that is surely not the only reason why I loved this dress so much. You know, when I think Zuhair Murad the first thing that comes to my mind is- haute couture. I feel he is one of those designers who were simply meant to make couture. Do you know what I mean? Murad's designs are always so exquisite, glam and elegant. I do like his ready-to-wear collections, but there is just something about his haute couture collections that makes them stand out in the sea of others. 
 I already illustrated a dress by this designer (here), and with the fashion week on its way, I opted for somethi…
