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.

TWO WAYS TO STYLE A SCARF (SUSTAINABLE FASHION FILES)

Today I'll show you two ways to style a scarf: one is by wrapping it around your headband and the other by using it as a belt for your dress.  I'm also going to link up old posts with more ideas for styling this scarf, offering you about a dozen ideas. The first idea is a common one. Wearing a belt around your dress is an easy way to accentuate your waist. The other outfit proposal shows a fresh styling trick: wearing your scarf wrapped around your headband. Yes, you read that right. This is actually such an easy way to make the most out of your headband(s). I own only one headband but by wrapping different scarves around it, it seems like I have a dozen of them.  As for the two outfits I'm going to show to you, they are both summer ones. The colour palette for these looks is pretty neutral, but I jazzed it up by choosing printed white items. I do like the freshness that the white colour offers, but as a lover of prints I tend to compromise by opting for printed white ite…

SUMMER TO AUTUMN OUTFITS FEATURING A VINTAGE BLACK MAXI DRESS

Today I'll show you seven ways  to wear a black maxi dress. This beautiful vintage dress was gifted to me by a family member. I don't own many solid black maxi dresses (probably because I'm addicted to bold prints and colours). I do own quite a few little black dress (because a LBD is such a classical piece) but not that many black ones in maxi length. In fact, I believe this is the only plain black maxi dress I own. I find it really easy to style. I treat this maxi as a neutral piece and I wear it all year round. I actually added embroidery to it (it's a hobby of mine) but the embroidery detail isn't that big (for now) so I tend to style it as a plain black dress. By that I mean that I like to have fun with accessories when I wear this dress. I often wear it with statement necklaces I made myself or similar eye-catching accessories. Anyhow, I figured that with the summer to autumn transitioning that is going on right now, it would make sense to show you some tran…

FASHION ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ILLUSTRATED TOTE BAGS REDBUBBLE

I don't know what it is about the combination of tote bags and fashion illustrations that I like so much. Maybe it is simply a matter of combining two things that I love. I adore tote bags for their practicality, I like to carry one with me (often tucked in my regular bag) at all times because you never know. We all know that the typical disposable plastic grocery bags are a huge no-no for the environment, so a tote bag is a must (even if just for grocery shopping).  I personally like to wear tote bags even on occasions that have nothing to do with grocery lists, but to each his own. As for fashion illustration, well I don't have to explain that. I have literally loved fashion illustration for as long as I can remember. Joining my creative skills with tote bags seemed logical! Some of you might remember that I even hand painted some vintage tote bags. In fact, you had the chance of seeing one of those tote bags recently here. As much as I enjoy using textile prints, I also li…
