Summer food /Ljetna hrana

Some people can't eat when the temperatures are really high. I don't have that problem. This Summer I've been really into home made dips.  I've developed a few flavours that I really like, I'm not sure if anyone does it quite the same way. Usually I make them from green paprika and carrots (with the addition of spices, olive oil and garlic), but sometimes I add a bit of tomato as well. I use this dips with just about anything, not just salads (as you can see). Almost every day I use my blender to make a dip of some kind. What do you like to prepare during the Summer?

Neki ljudi ne mogu jesti kada su temperature visoke, ali ja osobno nemam taj problem. Ovo ljeto se zabavljam s domaćim umacima (ne onim kuhanim već sirovim) i razvila sam par okusa koji mi se sviđaju. Nisam sigurna radi li to netko na isti način, ali ja obično napravim umak od zelene paprike i mrkve (uz dodatak maslinovoga ulja , začina i češnjaka), a ponekad dodam i rajčicu. Koristim ove umake s svačim nečim, ne samo s salatama (kao što možete vidjeti). Skoro svaki dan palim blender da napravim nekakav umak. Što vi volite pripremati ljeti?

  4. Ja po ovim vrućinama udaram samo po salatama i paštama, a najrađe ne bi ni to jela koliko mi sparina smeta. Ne mogu dočekati jesen :)

  18. Mami me ovo sve s tvog stola, ali godinama se već ljeti ne mogu natjerati na ništa drugo osim na salate, tijesto pod uvjetom da je s nečim laganim, a meso može proći samo kuhano, i to nikako ne crveno. Ali zato mogu udarati po sladoledu. :D

  24. Vidim već da bi mi se svideo, zanimljiva mešavima ukusa :) Ja ne mogu da smislim hranu leti, samo bih jela lubenice i slično, a što se nečeg konkretnijeg tiče, omiljene su mi pasta salate i generalno nešto što ne mora de prži i peče jer mi u suprotnom baš teško padne hrana :/

  25. OMG I'm salivating profusely right now! I LOVE DIPS! Dips are an institution, I need them everyday in my life, just wish I knew where I can buy some!
    Your hubby must be a very happy person! If I had someone by my side, who cooks like you, there wouldn't be anything in this world that would break me :D I love food!

  26. By the way, forgot to mention I have major difficulties eating during heat, but with your delicious recipes this problem might just disappear!

  27. I don't like to eat alone more than to eat in summer. Salads, guacamole, cream soups, these kind of dips you made. Summer is the ice cream pancakes season. :)

  29. Meni zbog vrucine manjka apetita po danu ali zato kada sunce zadje, guza mi odmah viri iz frizidera! Volim svjezu i laganiju hranu ljeti iako, jedem ja sta god, nisam bas neki izbirljiv tip! Umake jako volim jesti uz sve tako da vjerujem da su ovi tvoji mljac!

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…

Lado (drawing of the day/ crtež dana)

Hello everyone! Have I ever talked to you about my love for folklore? I've always been keen on exploring folklore dresses and costumes, mostly because I find them to be very inspirational. In my view, folklore is one of the best fashion inspiration out there. The diversity and the beauty of international folklore dresses and costumes is enough to leave anyone impressed. Here I illustrated one of Croatian national costumes ( we have a lot of them), worn by Croatian national folklore dance ensemble Lado. As a reference for this drawing, I used a photograph from Lado's official catalog. The medium is coloured pencils on papers.
Zdravo svima! Jesam li sa vama ikada pričala o svojoj ljubavi  prema folkloru? Uvijek sam voljela istraživati folklorne nošnje i kostime, većinom zato jer su mi toliko nadahnjujući. Po mome mišljenu, folklor je jedno od najboljih modnih nadahnuća koji postoji. Raznolikost i ljepota međunarodnih folklornih nošnji i kostima je dovoljna da svakoga ostavi zadi…

Diane Von Furstenberg Resort 2018 ( fashion illustration of the day/ modna ilustracija dana )

I know what you're thinking. It's Summer, how can you think about coats? Well, I can. The sweat is literally dripping down by forehead, but I'm going to share an illustration inspired by Diane Von Furstenberg's 2018 Resort collection. It is always good to look forward to something, right? I'm pretty sure that a lot of ladies are looking forward to this collection hitting the stores this November. What I personally find so irresistible about it are- the colours. I'm very keen on bold colours and patterns, so no wonder this collection caught my eye.
Znam što mislite. Ljeto je, kako možeš razmišljati o kaputima? Jednostavno mogu. Znoj mi kapa niz čelo, ali ipak ću podijelit modnu ilustraciju nadahnutu kolekcijom Diane Von Furstenberg za 2018. godinu. Sigurna sam da će se puno dama razveseliti kada ova kolekcija stigne u trgovine u studenom. Ono što je meni osobno tako neodoljivo kod ove kolekcije su- boje. Jako volim žarke boje i uzorke, tako da nije nimalo neobič…
