Sights to see, places to visit / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, mjesta za posjetiti

 Time for another feature of Sights to see, places to visit. I've started this series because I wanted to share places that are dear to me with my readers. I wasn't sure should I include this post in the series, because I often took you to Buna river with me. However, some of you might be new visitors/readers on my blog. In addition, some of you might need a reminder why you shouldn't miss visiting this place. Well, take for the example photograph two and three, that is a river bird and a river snake. I've captured both despite the fact that my last visit was a short one. Futhermore, I photographed some really rare birds here previously and let me tell you I wasn't even trying that hard. Most of the time when I visit Buna, I'm here for two hours maximum because I use it as 'have a moment and breathe place'. It is situated near Mostar, so it is really easy for me to get here. In fact, the two of us have been known to just drive here while it is raining and dine on a sandwich in car, watching the river flow by.  Little moments like that form precious memories. You can read some of my previous posts here, here , here , here and here.

Vrijeme je za još jednu objavu u mojoj rubrici Znamenitosti za vidjeti, mjesta za posjetiti koju sam započela jer sam željela podijeliti meni draga mjesta sa svojim čitateljima. Nisam bila sigurna trebam li uvrstiti ovu objavu u rubriku jer sam vaš često vodila na Bunu sa mnom, ali možda tu ima i novih čitatelja, a možda i starima dobro dođe podsjetnik zašto ovo mjesto vrijedi posjetiti. Uzmite za primjer drugu i treću fotografiju, to jest riječnu pticu i zmiju. Uspjela sam obje uloviti, a nisam se ni posebno trudila, naprotiv zadnji put sam na Buni bila kratko, kakvi su i inače moji posjeti Buni jer je za mene ovo mjesto za predahnuti, a pošto je tako blizu Mostara, lako je do njega doći. Ovdje sam fotografirala i neke rijetke ptice, a jednom smo se čak nas dvoje dovezli dok je padala kiša i samo gledati rijeku i ručali sendvič. Takvi mali trenutci stvaraju divne uspomene. U engleskom dijelu teksta možete naći poveznice za stare objave o Buni (da ih sada sve ne kopiram pa možete doći do njih klikom gore).










































Now, about the outfit. I've proven that I can wear black as long as I'm allowed some colourful accessories. I'm not sure if this dress could be called vintage. It is from the eighties, but today some call clothes from nineties vintage, so let's say it is. It seems there are a few definitions of that term and perhaps they are all correct in their own way. I got this lovely maxi as a gift from my niece in law and I wore it previously here. I decided to pair it with these gorgeous Peko heels because they have a retro vibe I really like. Both of the necklaces I'm wearing I designed and made myself a decade ago when I first got interested in making necklaces. I was going for an Art deco chic here, because I absolutely love that period  both in art and fashion.



Što se tiče odjevne kombinacije dokazala sam da mogu nositi crno, ali samo ako uz to smijem nositi modne dodatke u boji. Nisam sigurna bi li se ova haljina mogla nazvati vintage jer je iz osamdesetih, ali opet neki zovu i stvari iz devedesetih tako, a izgleda da postoji  više definicija, a moguće je da su sve definicije točne na svoj način. Dobila sam je na poklon od muževe nećakinje, a nosila sam je prije tu. Odlučila sam je iskombinirati s Peko cipelama na petu koje imaju divni starinski štih. Obje ogrlice koje nosim sam sama osmislila i izradila prije deset godina, kada sam se prvi put počela zanimati za pravljenje ogrlica. Pokušavala sam pomalo dočarati Art deco jer jako volim taj period i u modi i u umjetnosti.

  9. That place is so dreamy! I love it! I wish I could be there right now. So picturesque. I like your outfit a lot, too. You Seem to fit in your environment. Vintage gets "younger" every year. I sell on Etsy, so the allowed items to be sold on there for vintage literally changes every year. This year, it is technically vintage if it is prior to 1996.

  10. A very peaceful and lovely place! I can see why you enjoy it. At my work at the back of the parking lot is a swamp I look at to soothe me while I eat my sandwich so I understand. Sweet little birdy picture too! New poem is finally up. Thank you for asking about it. That made me happy.

  20. Kada vidim toliko stvari vrednih zapažanja, ne znam šta da izdvojim. Potpuno mi je fascinantna ta zmija, to se ne viđa svaki dan. Mesto je stvarno dušu dalo za predah, već vidim da bih stalno išla tamo. Priroda je očaravajuća, a priča o kiši i sendviču mi je tako posebna. Baš takve mali stvari prave ralzliku. Ti izgledaš očaravajuće zaista, crna ti jako lepo stoji a osvežila si haljinu prelepim detaljima. I ja volim Art deco :)

    1. ja sam te riječne zmije vidjela još u par navrata ovdje po Herzegovini (jednom na Kravicama, a jednom na Trebižatu), ali opet možda zbog svih godinama gledanja prirodoslovnih emisija, imam bolje oko za njih....jedan je čovjek bio metar od ove zmije, ali nije je vidio.

  41. Oh, Ivana...that first picture of you is just stunning. You have such gorgeous features. And I know what you mean by driving up in the rain, park and eat sandwiches...my husband and I used to do that too. It's just strangely calming to do that and very relaxing too to watch the rain falling down.

You look again very beautiful, the vintage dress from the 80s is such a cool piece and I like it that you wear it with the colourful necklaces you designed by your own. And yes, I think also that the retro vibes of the shoes are matching perfect with the outfit.

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. 








DIY PROJECTS 
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…
