an ethno village to be ..../ etno selo koje će biti.... ( Sights to See, Places to Visit / Znamenitosti za vidjeti, Mjesta za posjetiti- Međugorje)


Does it make sense to make a post about an ethno village that still isn't open for business? By that I mean that it is still under construction. Moreover, I'm not even sure when you will actually be able to rent a room here. I'll let you know when I find out. That all being said, I love visiting this place. Perhaps because I'm a curious cat and I like to see what is new. Maybe because it is uncanny how much this village reminds me of all those little villages I love so much. I'm absolutely fascinated by just how well they managed to recreate everything. If I didn't know, I wouldn't have a problem believing that this is actually some really old village. So, if you find yourself at Međugorje any time soon (and since Međugorje is visited by millions of tourists every year who knows you might be one of them), take a half an hour and pay it a visit. It will not cost you anything and you can alway revisit it and stay there next time (hopefully, they will have finished it by then). 

Ima li smisla pisati o etno selu koje još ne radi, a s time mislim da je još uvijek u izgradnji. Uz to, nisam uopće sigurna kada će zapravo biti moguće tu iznajmiti sobu. Javit ću vam ako saznam. No, unatoč tome volim posjećivati ovo mjesto. Možda zato jer sam radoznala i volim vidjeti što ima novo, a možda zato što me podsjeća na sva ona mala sela koja toliko volim. Jako me fascinira kako su sve uspjeli pogoditi. Doista, da ne znam o čemu je riječ, povjerovala bi da se radi o nekom selu vrlo starom. Tako da ako se uskoro nađete u Međugorju ( a pošto Međugorje posjećuju milijuni turista godište tko zna možda ćete i vi biti jedni od njih), uzmite pola sata i posjetite ga. Ništa vas neće koštati i uvijek možete ponovo doći ako vam se svidi (valjda će se do tada selo i službeno otvoriti).

  6. Stvarno deluje kao da je već vekovima tu i kao da je vreme stalo :) Toliko je slatka svaka kućica, pa mostić i svaki detalj, a ti si se fantastično uklopila u ambijent. Divan mi je taj sako/kaputić, i kako se ukoplio uz šarene helanke i torbu. Čizme su savršene i baš imaju finu petu :)

  10. If you hadn't mentioned otherwise I'd definitely believe that this was an ancient village since it has the look of old world charm. Whatever it's status, I'm glad you picked this as a backdrop for your photos since there it provides so much visual interest. I do hope it will be open for business though. This would no doubt be a nice place to stay :)

  20. Hey Ivana! I really like that you're always showing us inspiring and magical places around you, they say in order to keep our creativity going in and going out we must discover something new every week (by something new I mean a town, a little village, a new coffee, a new store, etc.) I like to believe this is true and every corner can be a source of inspiration every moment!

    Wish I could go there one time, actually I would like to explore all over the world! So if you want to come to Barcelona one day you're more than welcomed!

    And talking about your OOTD, I really love it because it looks comfortable but is beyond chic and lovely. You look super happy and I must say smile is the best accessory on earth!

    Best regards, dear!
    PS: I really appreciate every comment you leave on my blog, is super cool to find out people like you in this blogging world, you're really inspiring and creative, please don't stop making art! :)

  22. Nadam se da će ga u nekom trenutku ipak odlučiti dovršiti i otvoriti iako već djeluje poprilično sređeno. Baš bi moglo biti lijepo i opuštajuće mjesto, a ti si se baš super uklopila u lokaciju i donijela dašak kolora, pogotovo s tom torbom :D

  31. How cool! It is like looking back in time, they did a great job. We have a similar thing in our town from the frontier days in America. You can go there and tour the old town and they teach you how to make soap and candles and stuff like that. Like a Pinterest of the Past. And wow, dear, you and those leggings. I had a wonderful time enjoying each shot of them and then that first one in front of the door and it was all over ;) But I did return and took in the remainder of the shots, each one very wonderful! Happy Thursday to you, dear.

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…

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.
