October- breast cancer awareness month / Listopad- mjesec podizanja svijesti o raku dojke

October is a breast cancer awareness month. Early prevention is very important. Get informed. Read    how you check yourself for early signs of breast cancer (here - or just google it). There are also countless tutorials on youtube explaining how to do a home self-test. If you prefer, ask your doctor do explain the self- check procedure to you. If you notice anything that worries you, contact the doctor immediately.

Listopad je mjesec podizanja svijesti o raku dojke. Rana prevencija je jako važna. Informirajte se, pročitajte (ovdje ili nađite sami sličan članak na webu) kako same sebe pregledati za rane znakove raka dojke. Postoje i brojni tutorijali na youtube koji objašnjavaju kako kući sam sebe pregledati. Ako vam je draže, pitajte doktora da vam objasni proceduru samopregleda. Osjetite li išta zabrinjavajuće, odmah kontaktirate doktora.

  3. Želim samo dodati da su pregledi kod doktora vrlo bitni, jer ne može se napipati sve, i nije sve što se napipa nužno zlo.
    zato, jednom mjesečno uz samopreglede, trk na uzv ili mamogram.

    1. tako je, doktor najbolje zna, a uzv ili mamogram bi trebao biti obvezan za svaku ženu. Oni godišnji sistematski u doba komunizma uopće nisu bili loša stvar, danas svi mi više manje idemo u doktora tek kada naš nešto zaboli, a ti neki specijalistički pregledi su jako bitni.

  6. Slažem se. Jako je bitno znati pregledati same sebe ali isto tako redovno ići na kontrolu jer nikad se ne zna. Sreća pa u današnje vreme medicina sve više napreduje, a ignorisanjem i neodlaskom na pregled, pravimo zamku same sebi...

    1. svakako kontrola kod doktora je potrebna, ali mislim da je i samopregled bitan. Hvala...crtež je od prošle godine s tečaja slikanja, sada sam se opet priključila novom tečaju:)

  7. Really such a nice post, dear Ivana, and amazing illustration! Yes, early prevention is the answer. I know so many people who died from breast cancer, and it is so sad, so terrible, if only they had seen that before, so much life that was still so good to be lived and now... all gone, apart from memories, that should be cherished, of course. Hope you have a very great weekend, dear Ivana!!!!!

    1. thank you Denise. I'm sorry to hear you lost so many dear ones to breast canver...I can relate with you because I lost some family members to cancer as well. My grandfather died of lung cancer and my uncle too (this year sadly). My mother's uncle also died from lung cancer this year ( and he didn't even smoke) When it comes to breast cancer, both of my grandmothers had breast cancer but they managed to overcome it. My paternal grandmother died due to diabetis complications but she lived many years after being treated for breast cancer. My maternal grandmother is still alive, despite all the other health problems she had in the meantime...but cancer is a serious problem, I know many people who died from it too.

  8. Thanks for this important reminder! Early detection is so important and it really saves lives. A good friend of mine discovered a malignant lump in her mid 30's and thankfully it was early stage. She got treatment right away and has been cancer free ever since.

  12. Cancer is no joke and like you said Ivana, early detection is key. I'm so glad a whole month is dedicated to this killer. Hopefully with all the awareness being raised about it, medicine is getting closer and closer to a cure. Not just for bc but for all types of cancers. I had to have a repeat mammogram a year ago and it was very scary. Just getting that call to come back in was like a death sentence in itself. Luckily everything checked out. It does get tricky because I have implants and they try to get good shots from all angles.
    A friend of mine is a bc survivor. She documents her journey and vlogs great tips on prevention and lifestyle modifications. I truly pray God a cure for this ugly disease is in sight.
    Beautiful illustration of the lady getting a mammogram. You got skills girl!!!
    I hope your week was phenomenal. Enjoy your weekend.

  19. Hello Ivanna! I love that you're always changing and mixing different topics (but all connected) in Moda Odaradosti. I have worked a lot in university with breast cancer campaigns because at my school we used to work with some associations. I think prevention is the most important part when it comes to Breast Cancer... prevention and also the value to communicate and! A few months ago my aunt died of breast cancer so imagine how this is affecting my family, of course we're all part of it! It is hard but not impossible!

    I really appreciate your art when it comes to this kind of causes!

    Tons of love, my dear!

  22. Bravo za izbor teme Ivanice! Jako je bitno voditi racuna o svom zdravlju i ici na redovne preglede. Takodje, s vremena na vreme moramo se i samopregledati i pratiti da nema nekih kvrzica, ne daj Boze.
    Ilustracija je sjajna i neobicna :-*

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.

INSPIRED BY.....NATALIA LIALINA

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

A GRACE KARIN DRESS: VALENTINE'S DAY OUTFIT PROPOSAL

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…

WINTER DESTINATIONS HERZEGOVINA: MOUNTAIN PRENJ, RUJISTE

A HERZEGOVIAN WINTER FAIRY TALE

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. …
