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.

HOW TO STYLE AN OVERSIZED BEIGE SCARF: 2 OUTFIT PROPOSALS

Whether you're longing for spring to come asap or not, one thing is certain-  winter is not going  anywhere. The cold weather is not going to end up anytime soon, not in this part of the world. It's snowing in most of Europe and the weather is quite cold. What are we do to if not dress appropriately, and that means dress as warmly as possible? Not long ago I published a post about winter accessories that keep us warm. Today I'll be talking about one of them in particular and that would be the oversized scarf.  I've always loved big scarves and I have quite a few of them, some vintage, some I made myself. Lately, however it occurred to me that I should get one of those new trendy oversized ones, the kind that you can use as blanket. You know how much I love colour, right? Well, beige is no exception so I was happy to see it listed as one of the biggest trends this season. I picked up this beige oversized scarf for next to nothing in New Yorker. It's super cozy and …

HOW TO MAKE 3D FASHION ILLUSTRATION DRESSES WITH DRY FLOWERS?

Everyone knows that flowers make for a great prop, something very useful in these visual days. Moreover, in this time of social media, we are all looking for good photography props, aren't we? Bloggers, influences and what not, everyone wants to make their photographs pop. Flowers are a great way to do just that. Dried flowers are even better, because you don't have to worry about their expiry date. Dried flowers are also a great way to recycle (when you make your own) and preserve memories. I've been drying flowers for quite some time and there is really nothing to it. You can also buy dried flowers (or even fresh ones if you prefer). They are simply a perfect addition to flat lay photography.
Today I'll speak about creating 3D dresses on fashion illustrations. Now, you don't have to know how to do fashion illustration to try your hand at this. You can trace some of the fashion templates available online (be sure to make sure the author is o.k with that) or you c…

BEST BOOKS AND FAV WRITERS OF 2018

Writing this post took forever, and not just because I'm not exactly sure how many books I read in 2018. I did try to keep a track on goodreads but sometimes I forget to add books that I'm reading there. I'd say that I probably read around 80 books last year, give or take a dozen. I do love to read, as readers of my blog might already know or suspect. Here comes a list of my last year favourites. The list is written in no particular order. The links are not affiliated ( I tried to join Amazon affiliate program in the past but they rejected me saying that my blog doesn't have enough views so yeah it's all regular links). In cases of classics the books are linked to sites such as Project Gutenberg or Oxford University where you can find free copies. In case of modern works, I linked them up to my own blog posts (when relevant), Wikipedia or the authors' sites. 



I had a pretty good reading year, I'd say. Some of the books I read I actually discovered in my ow…
