Fashion illustration of the day/ Modna ilustracija dana (Vorrei che ritornasse presto un altro lunedì)
A new week. A new month. Who knows what it means? Who knows what it will bring? I have no idea and sometimes that is not such a bad thing. I have tons of plans and desires. At times too much inspiration can be distracting. When I end up feeling a bit disoriented, I remind myself to take it one day at the time. That's what I will do and hence I can only tell you what you will see on blog today and that is another painting, once again a watercolour painting. There are a few more of them coming out. This one is a more artistic take on a fashion illustration. It was painted on the same day as the last two fashion illustrations I shared (here and here), so back in October but the choice of colours was very much influenced by Autumn. My significant other immediately recognized my inspiration behind this piece (one faux fur scarf I have in my closet since forever).
Novi tjedan. Novi mjesec. Tko zna što to sve znači? Tko zna što će donijeti? Nemam pojma i ponekad to i nije loše stvar. Imam hrpu planova i želja, a ponekad previše inspiracije može odvući pažnju. Kada se osjećam dizorjentirano, podsjetim se uzeti dan za dan. To ću i napraviti i zato vam mogu reći što ćete vidjeti na blogu danas, a to je još jedna slika, ponovo akvarel. Ima i još nekoliko koje uskoro stižu. Ova je malo više umjetnička verzija modne ilustracije, a naslikana je isti dan kao i ove dvije (ovdje i ovdje), dakle u rujnu ali već pod utjecajem jesenjih boja. Moja druga polovica je odmah prepoznala inspiraciju iza ovih slika, a to je jedan šal od umjetnog krzna koji imam već dugo).

You know what? I don't hate Mondays anymore, I suppose I heard that 'Sabato' song by Jovanotti often enough to change my mind about the value of Saturday. Turns out one can have too much of the good thing. One of the main problems in Europe is, metaphorically speaking, the lack of Mondays for the young, meaning in fact- the lack of work and work opportunities for the younger generations. As Jovanotti puts it, I wish that another Monday would return promptly ( vorrei che ritonarsse presto un altro lunedi). I guess it is up to us to create our own Mondays. Don't let apathy take over you! Pursue things you're passionate about and consistent about it. Develop you inner stoic, you will need it to face life's difficulties. Remember that life is not just about dramatic decisions, sometimes it is the little things that matter, there are many advantages to being consistent, it can help you in many aspects of your life. As cliche as it might sound, hard work on something you care deeply about pays off - at least in one way: you get to feel better about yourself, and that's quite an accomplishment in itself for some of us. That would be all for today. Happy Monday!
Znate li što? Više ne mrzim ponedjeljke, pretpostavljam da sam dovoljno često čula onu Jovanottijevu pjesmu Sabato da bi promijenila mišljenje o vrijednosti subote. Ispada da i od viška boli glava. Jedan od glavnih problema u Europi je ,metaforički rečeno, manjak ponedjeljaka, a to zapravo znači manjak posla i poslovnih prilika za mlađe generacije. Kao što bi rekao Jovanotti, želim da se brzo vrati drugi (još jedan) ponedjeljak (vorrei che ritonarsse presto un altro lunedi). Mislim da je na nama preostalo da sami stvorimo svoj ponedjeljak. Nemojte da vas obuzme apatija! Idite za stvarima do kojih vam je stalo i budite dosljedni. Razvijte u sebi sposobnost da stoički podnesete životne nedaće jer će vam to trebati. Sjetite se da poanta života nisu samo neke dramatičke odluke, ponekad su male stvari te koje vrijede, a postoje brojne prednosti dosljednosti...u brojnim aspektima života. Koliko god to može zvučati kao klišej, naporan rad na načemu do čega nam je stalo se isplati- barem na jedan način osjećamo se bolje u pogledu nas samih, a za neke od nas to je pravo postignuće. To bilo sve za danas. Ugodan dan vam želim!
Hello everyone and happy hump day!How are you doing? I hope you had a lovely week so far. It's been a while since my last Inspired by post, hasn't it? Well, today I'm back with another Inspired by... feature. As some of you know, this is a regular feature on my blog that is all about illustrating bloggers I love and that inspire me. I always say it's one of my favourite features and it truly is. Over the years I had the chance to illustrate many many bloggers and it's always something I enjoy doing. Moreover, I enjoy blog recommendations posts and I'm sure I'm not the only one. I discovered some wonderful bloggers through other bloggers and that's always lovely. This regular feature of mine is not just about illustrating, it is also a kind of a blog recommendation post, because it gives me a chance to share bloggers I love with you. This time I have illustrated Natalia from @inthewriterscloset. You can check out her blog here.
What to wear for Valentine's day? I'm sure many ladies (and gentlemen) are asking themselves that question. I can't offer much personal experience on dressing up for Valentine's day when it comes to gentlemen, but I can tell you what I've learned as a lady. I can sum it up in two main points: find something that will make you feel special but make sure you're comfortable at the same time. After all, you want to feel special on this lovely day, don't you? Now, you can define special anyway you want to. Moreover, you must also consider one important fact and that is how you are going to celebrate Valentine's day. If you are celebrating it by going on a hike with your significant other, obviously you'll ditch the heels and wear hiking boots. However, that doesn't mean you can't wear a pretty dress! My advice is to take a moment and plan your Valentine's day outfit, that way it will surely feel special. There are other things to consider as…
What are some of best winter destinations in Herzegovina? That is the questions that I plan to answer with a series of posts. To start with, I'm bringing you a bit of winter magic and taking you with me to mountain Rujiste (proper spelling Rujište, pronunciation Ruyshte) located on mountain Prenj. This mountain is only a short drive away from Mostar city, which makes it ideal for a little winter getaway.
I've always loved mountains, so when we went for a little drive and ended up here, I was ecstatic. Winter fairy tale coming my way, that's something I didn't mind at all. I'm a big fan of hiking (as some of you may know). Not that I did a lot of hiking here (I'll explain why later). Anyhow, this is a great place for visiting, whether or not you plan to hike. Just chilling or photograph taking is fine too. For me personally, there is just something about the combination of high altitude and fresh air that makes my heart sing. …
