You can keep your smile on....Možeš zadržati osmijeh....


No make up. Rainy and gloomy day. Even the ducks seemed depressed and not sociable as usual. Lots of layers. Nothing glam about this outfit. Yet I remember how happy I felt that day. I was so full of joy even if there wasn't a particular reason to smile about.  Maybe it was because I realized  there is always something to smile about. Life as such is a gift. A precious gift. Often we forget it. We forget what a blessing it is simply to be alive and to have someone to share it with. Welcome May! I'm not going to complain about the rain or the sudden drop in temperature, because it doesn't really bother me. After the rain, there always comes the sun. I wish you all a fantastic May!

Bez šminke. Kišovit i tmuran dan. Čak su se i patke činile depresivnima i napustila ih je njihova druželjubivost. Puno slojeva. Ništa nema glam kada je u pitanju ova kombinacija. Ipak se sjećam kako sam sretna bila toga dana, ispunjena radošću iako nije postojao neki poseban razlog za osmijeh. Možda zato jer sam shvatila da uvijek postoji razlog za osmijeh. Život kao takav je dar. Dragocjen dan. Često to zaboravljamo. Zaboravimo kakav je blagoslov jednostavno biti živ i moći to podijeliti s nekim. Dobrodošao svibnju! Neću se žaliti na kišu ili nagli pad temperature, jer mi iskreno i ne smeta. Želim vam svima divan svibanj!

  1. Aw, I really like what you said in the opening paragraph! :) Life is a precious gift, and it is too easy for us to forget about it on a daily basis when we just carry on with our busy lives, getting annoyed and sad about tiny things that in the grand scheme of things, don't really matter. There is always something to smile about! I really like the little saying that says, 'Every day may not be good, but there's something good in every day'. :) <3 Really loving the photos as always, the outfit looks super warm and comfy! The illustration is beautiful also, something about it feels just so carefree. :) Hope you're having a fantastic weekend so far, hun! Kisses. x

  11. You look radiantly beautiful and no need for makeup to achieve that! I love the soft colours in your painting, and I love the warmth and radiance (yes I keep using that word) of the photos. Thank you for visiting my Buddhism blog post and leaving a comment. I have been struggling to blog or visit blogs or comment (perhaps obvious) but I want to get back to you now and say that I agree with you about the essential message of Buddhism. Be your best self, most compassionate self, forget religion and just keep finding your way to love.

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…
