What I wore this morning / Što sam jutros nosila ( tshirt with DIY heart patches / majica s ušivenim srcima)

 7.30 am. I'm awake. I awoke a bit later than usual this morning.  I wash my face and turn on my laptop. My husband reminds me that yesterday I had said something about how I will go hiking every morning from now on. He is right, I did say that. I turn off my laptop, wash my face once more and grab the first items that come to my hand. It is pure luck these two clothing items happen to match...or maybe it is not luck. I customized them myself, didn't I? DIY has its perks. Anyway, I'm already out of the house and rushing towards the hills because this is Mostar. That means the temperature will rise very high very quickly. As I climb the hill, I'm struggling to make out the mountains in the distance. The heat has made everything seem blurred, but in a way that makes landscape magical. 

8.15 am. Missed call. I must have toned down the volume and forgot about it. It doesn't matter, it's time to get back anyway. I type a message and head back. I had my 15 minutes of peace. Sometimes it is all it takes. We'll see if I will manage to keep up these morning walks. I think I would be wise to set my alarm clock a lot earlier. It is Summer and it won't get any cooler, plus I'm back in this city. Early morning start sounds like the right thing to do. What do you think? When is it time for your daily walk? Do you tend to go for a stroll? Do you take long or do you prefer short walks? Do you plan them? I remember reading that walking is one of the best exercises for our body. What I come to discover is that it is really good for the soul. Anyhow, that is my personal experience.

 7.30. Budna sam. Jutros sam se probudila malo kasnije nego obično. Umivam se i uključujem laptop. Muž me podsjeća kako sam jučer govorila nešto o tome kako ću odsata svako jutro ići malo šetati po brdima. U pravu je, stvarno sam to rekla. Gasim laptop, još jednom se umivam i uzimam prvo što mi dolazi pod ruku. Sasvim slučajno se ta dva odjevna predmeta slažu, no možda to i nije sreća jer sam ih sama prekrojila. Nekad dobro dođu ti "izradi sam" projekti. Kakogod, već sam van kuće i žurim prema brdima jer je ovo Mostar, što znači da će se temperatura podignuti jako visoko jako brzo. Dok se penjem na brdo, mučim se razabrati planine u daljini. Vrućina je sve zamaglila, ali na neki način to čini krajolik čarobnim.

8.15. Propušten poziv. Sigurno sam smanjila ton i zaboravila na to. Nije važno, ionako je vrijeme da se vratim. Tipkam poruku i krećem nazad. Imala sam svojih petnaestak minuta mira. Ponekad je to sve što nam treba. Vidjet ćemo hoću li uspjeti u ovom planu jutrarnjih šetnji. Mislim da bi bilo pametno naviti alarm ranije. Ljeto je, neće postati svježije, a ja sam opet u ovom gradu. Rani početak dana čini se kao prava odluka. Što vi mislite? Kada krećete u dnevnu šetnju? Imate li običaj prošetati?  Volite li duge ili kratke šetnje? Planirate ih? Sjećam se da sam pročitala da je šetnja jedna od najboljih vježbi za tijelo. Ono što sam otkrila je da je doista dobra za dušu. Barem u mom slučaju.

  1. Odlične slike, kombinacija, priroda!
    Šetnje su odlična stvar, i za dušu i za organizam.
    Super su i šetnje po noći. Da radim samo jutarnju, išla bih prije posla, ovako lovim sve moguće prilike.
    Koja je to planina u izmaglici na slikama?

  2. I really like the idea of going for a morning walk. It's sounds like a great way to start the day while getting some exercise as well. It's cool how you recorded your experience like a diary entry. I've loved that DIY top ever since the first time you showed it to is. The contrasting stripes look fantastic together.

  3. It's so good to see you back, Ivana, I was worried that you've stopped blogging completely. Everyone wake up very early in our house, it's between 5.30-6.30am and even the little one is an early riser. I feel like we never waste the day because we wake up this early and I get lots of things done. We do go to bed very early though, sometimes 9.30pm and the latest is 10.00pm.

    1. I was away to visit my grandmother and I ended up being without internet connection...which turned out pretty well and gave me change to rest more.

  4. I have also read (very recently, in fact!) about walking being massively beneficial for the body - I suppose it's because it uses all parts of the body! Lovely idea to walk in the morning by the way, I tend to do all of my workouts at night. I love this striped top on you by the way, you look so beautiful :)

    1. yes, it does use most of the parts of the body. I think swimming is an even better exercise, but it is not as easily available as walking.

  8. I ja volim da setam i slazem se da je leti najbolje vreme krenuti sto ranije. Ima neceg magicnog u jutru bili mi u gradu, na planini ili na moru.
    Odevna kombinacija je skroz slatka I udobna, posebno mi se dopala majica sa nasivenim srcima. Jako lepo!

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.

CROATIAN DESTINATIONS: MAKARSKA CITY, THE MAIN CITY SQUARE

Hello my dear readers! Today I'm back with another post from Makarska city, a very popular coastal touristic destination in Croatia. If you remember, I went to Makarska on the first of March to visit a family member. I went back again last Friday (exactly a week ago) and the weather was dreamy. We had a great time, we sure did.  In this first photograph, you can see me standing in front of Franciscan monastery and church of Blessed Virgin. I will write a more about this monastery some other time, and today I'll show you a bit more of Makarska city itself and show some of its many attractions (like the main city square and the church of Saint Mark the Evangelist). If you haven't seen it yet, feel free to check out my recent post about Makarska. You can also check out this old Makarska travel post (dating to March, 2016). As you can see, I've been to Makarska a few times. Not nearly enough, if you ask me. It is a beautiful city and I think I even prefer it in spring sea…

JANUARY AND FEBRUARY HIGHLIGHTS

January and February have both been quite eventful months for me. A mix of good and the bad you might say, but all in all I can't complain. After ten long years I'm finally in remission, so that's amazing news. Fingers crossed things stay that way. I can't tell you how relived and happy I am to be in remission. I lost all hope of it (to tell you the truth) but then when I didn't even think about it, it happened. That's life, isn't it? You never know what the tomorrow might bring. Both good and the bad. I suppose that's the fun in living- not knowing. I know  it might seem a bit late, sharing January and February highlights as late as mid March, but I finally found some time to put this post together, so let's do it. Scroll down to see some of my January and February highlights.

TRIPS & GETAWAYS

Most of the trips I took this January were to areas located in vicinity of Mostar city (where I'm still based) but in February I visited Croatia. I&…

EARLY AVIATION FASHION ICON: A BIOGRAPHY OF AMELIA EARHART

AMELIA WAS THE FIRST CELEBRITY WHO LAUNCHED A FASHION LINE
What is the link between Amelia Earhart and fashion? Well, for one Amelia was known as one of the best dressed ladies of her time. Amelia sewed her own dresses, and while it was pretty common for women to sew their dresses back then, Amelia's dresses got her a lot of compliments. Moreover, Earhart took it a step further by designing a fashion line inspired by aviation. Amelia Earhart was the first celebrity to launch a fashion line in her name. She also designed it herself, sketched the designs with a seamstress working alongside her. Unlike many modern day celebrities who just put their name on whatever, Amelia really put some thought into her designs.
Did you know that Amelia was a fashion designer? Did you know she was quite fashionable and praised by many for her feminine charm and elegance? Today we think of her as a tomboy but I think there were many sides to her and that is what made her so wonderful. Do you like avi…
