River of dreams / Rijeka snova


I feel you everywhere around me
and I keep sensing the exact words I need
You must know, I tied myself to you
But you've given me freedom
I had searched for it
 for a very long time

River of dreams, spring of hope, whirl of desires, my life
I found all of that on this shore
my eyes are twinkling now, shining like stars
towards distance I gaze, love is there

Who are you? You that is kissing me so gently
while the sky is dawning 
Who are you? You whose breathing I'm listening to
next to a dreamy sea.*

lyrics from a song River of Dreams, written and perfomed by Neno Belan, check it out on youtube here





           Svud osjećam te oko sebe,              
I stalno ćutim one riječi koje su mi potrebne,
Znaj, vezao sam se uz tebe
Al' pružila si mi slobodu
dugo sam je tražio

Rijeka snova, vrelo nade, vrtlog želja, život moj
našao sam sve na ovoj obali
Moje oči sada trepere, poput zvijezda sjaje se
u daljinu gledam ljubav ondje je

Tko si ti? Što me ljubiš tako nježno 
dok na nebu sviće zora
Tko si ti? Što te slušam kako dišeš 
blizu uspavanog mora*

stihovi iz pjesme Nene Belana, poslušajte je ovdje

When it comes to songs, lyrics are very important to me. That is why for years, I've been fateful to those authors who write songs that not only make sense but are an art in themselves.  I simply adore this song. Are lyrics important to you? What are your favourite singers and bands?

Kada su u pitanju pjesme, tekstovi su mi užasno bitni. Zato sam već godinama vjerna onim glazbenicima čije pjesme ne samo da imaju smisla već su same po sebi umjetnost. Ovu pjesmu obožavam.  Jesu li tekstovi pjesama i vama važni? Koji su vaši omiljeni pjevači i grupe?

  25. There is always a beautiful message in most songs. I think songs often resonates with us depending what emotions we are feeling or dealing with at a particular time. I don't have a favorite or band but i love any kind of music as long as it makes me feel good with a nice beat.

  29. I meni su bitni stihovi, a to često ni ne mora da bude neka velika umetnost već nešto što ja sama prepoznam u pesmi. Možda je to par naizgled običnih reči a koji u meni probudi nešto. Ja zaista mogu skoro sve da slušam, osim narodnjaka i hevi metala. Ranije sam bila mnogo više posvećena tom svetu a sad stavrno zavisi od trenutka, inspiracije, želje. Ta pesma je divna :) I ti si divna i baš mi je super što si se slikala sa torbama i koferom :) Odmah me obuzme želja da se uputim negde :) Kombinacija je preslatka takođe a te cipelice su savršene! :)

  33. Meni su tekstovi najbitniji, tj. uvijek se zaljubim u ono nešto što ja prepoznam u pjesmi ili s čim se na neki način mogu poistovjetiti. Trenutačno gotovo isključivo slušam novi album od Adele jer je obožavam i s nestrpljenjem sam ga iščekivala, a sve ostalo mi ovisi o raspoloženju. Jedino što ne podnosim su narodnjaci, ali na svu sreću na njih nikad nigdje ni ne naletim :)

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…
