Margarita (as an inspiration for a series of illustrations/ kao nadahnuće za seriju ilustracija)

It's been a while since I last posted my illustrations, so here we go. All of these illustrations were inspired by The Master and Margarita by Mikhail Bulgakov (medium is watercolours).  Last month in this post,  I mentioned just how much I loved this book. I didn't write a review for this one yet, but when I do I will probably post in on my literature blog. Yes, I actually have another blog where I post book reviews. I plan to post book recommendations here, but I think it is best that I keep my book reviews on another blog because they are bound to be quite long. Last book I reviewed there was A Pale View of Hills by Kazuo Ishiguro (you can read it here). Anyhow, I think it is only natural that books inspire my paintings. After all, they were always such an important part of my life. 

Prošlo je dosta vremena od kada sam zadnji put objavila svoje ilustracije, pa evo ih (medij su vodene boje). Sve su ove bile nadahnute Majstorom i Margaritom Mikhaila Bulgakova. Prošlog mjeseca sam spomenula koliko mi se svidjela ova knjiga u ovoj objavi. Nisam još napisala ogled ovog romana, ali kada to napravim, vjerojatno ću ga objaviti na mome književnom blogu. Da, zapravo imam još jedan blog na kojem objavljujem oglede knjiga. Planiram objavljivati ovdje preporuke knjige, ali mislim da je najbolje da oglede ostavim na tome drugom blogu jer će sigurno biti malo poduži. Koje je zadnja knjiga o kojoj sam tamo pisala možete saznati ovdje.  Mislim da je posve prirodno da me za slikanje nadahnu knjige jer su uvijek bile važan dio moga života.

    1. If I reveal that, it will be a spoiler for the novel:) It was inspired by the novel and the character of Margarita, that is all I can say.

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.

3 AMAZING CITIES TO VISIT IN HERZEGOVINA BESIDES MOSTAR

My last post was about beautiful historical town Mostar, but today I want to show you other amazing cities in the region of Herzegovina. You guys know how much I treasure Mostar and how important it is to me. Mostar is the largest and best known city in Herzegovina, the cultural and administrative centre of this region you might say. Nevertheless, that doesn't mean that other cities don't deserve to be on your tourist radar as well. Honestly, one of the things that amazes me about Herzegovina is the diversity of its cities. Today I'll present three lovely cities to you: Ljubuški, Čapljina and Široki Brijeg. This is by no means a complete list. Another thing worth pointing out is that a lot of places  that get called cities, but in reality there are not that many cities in the whole of Bosnia and Herzegovina (only around 20). Popular tourist destinations such as Blagaj and Međugorje are often called cities while in fact they do not have a status of a city. 
As the name of …

VISIT OLD CITY CENTRE AND OLD BRIDGE IN MOSTAR WITH ME!

Today I will take you on a virtual walk through Mostar city, more specifically through the old part of the town. Whether you're a history lover or not, the historical part of Mostar city will surely impress you. There is a reason why this place is so popular. It's an utterly beautiful area and it's extremely photogenic. I'm very excited I'll be sharing it with you today. Moreover, I'm going to give you some outfit tips for sightseeing the old bridge and the old city. As some of you know, I'm currently based in Mostar. One the benefits of being Mostar based is that the gorgeous historical centre is always available to me (Click here to see my most recent blog post shot at old bridge in Mostar) and that means I can give you good insider tips too.
These photographs were all taken last Sunday when we decided to go for a walk through the old city after mass. We walked from the Saint Peter and Paul church and monastery to the old bridge, through the old town and…

KATE KASIN LONG SEQUIN DRESS (REVIEW AND STYLING TIPS)

Hi everyone! Who else loves sequined dresses? If you're into the metallic dress trend, you might find this post interesting. As the title indicates, today I'll be reviewing a gold Kate Kasin sequined maxi dress. I'm also going to give you some tips on rocking sequined dresses. Firstly, it is good to remember there is a metallic shade for every skin tone and undertone. The same rules we use for choosing the right jewellery for our skin tone can be applied to sequined and metallic items as well. Generally speaking, silver items are recommended for colder skin undertones and gold items for warmer ones. However, there are exceptions. Not all gold tones are the same. For example, rose gold is said to look particularly beautiful on fair skin ladies. This dress happens to come in different colours and shades (rose gold, gold, black, red, silver, navy blue and turquoise). Being olive skinned and warm toned myself, I opted for a gold version of this dress. What do you think? Does …
