Festivities / Vrijeme slavlja

I hope you had a lovely Christmas! Mine was bittersweet. I guess that with everything that is going on in the world, I found it a bit hard to get in the mood for festivities. However, life should always be celebrated. Life is a gift. We're not helping anyone by feeling sad. Sadness it a part of life, but we shouldn't let it become overwhelming. Let's celebrate life. Our way.  Have blessed holidays everyone! If you're a foodie, you're probably enjoy these photographs. You know I'm a foodie, right?

Nadam se da ste imali ugodan Božić! Moj je bio gorkosladak, sa svime što se događa u svijetu nekako nisam toliko raspoložena za slavlje. No, život uvijek treba slaviti. Život je dar. Ne pomažemo nikom time što smo tužni. Tuga je dio života, ali ne smijemo joj dopustiti da nam preuzme 
život. Slavimo život. Na svoj način.  Uživajte u praznicima! Volite li hranu, vjerovatno će vam se svidjeti sljedeće slike. Znate da ja volim hranu, zar ne?


  1. Jesu ovo punjene rajčice gore na slici? Čime ih puniš?
    Sretan Božić!

    1. napunila sam ih sa mladim sirom, maslinovim uljem i grčkim jogurtom, ali možeš staviti bilo što zapravo..jako brzo se spremi i baš je praktično za serviranje.

    All Things Bright and Lovely

  13. Da, ne možemo da dozvolimo da nas tuga savlada niti naše neraspoloženje ikome može da pomogne. Samo može da odmogne, pre svega nama samima. Uvek je bilo i lepih i groznih stvari. Neke stvari ne možemo da promenimo, ali možemo da kontrolišemo naš vlastiti svet. Tuga nikada nije rešenje jer život je privilegija i treba ga slaviti u svakom smilsu. Makar ja u to verujem...
    Hrana deluje izuzetno zaista. Ne sumnjam da je bilo preukusno :)

    1. slažem se, najlakše se prepustiti depresiji, za sve se treba boriti...a ako nećemo slaviti život, što ćemo slaviti?

  14. Woah this food looks so good! I'm currently on a train and oh boy it's making me hungry!!

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.

February recap / sažetak veljače

You have seen (more or less) what was February like for me. Now tell me... what was February like for you? Are you happy that it's already March or do you feel like time is flying too fast?Are you looking forward to the spring?

 As far as blogging goes, it seems that I have became more focused on fashion illustrations. In the next month the illustrations will have their place, but there will be more focus on DIY....or at least I think so, because I'm kind of heading in that direction. Apart from that, I have no plans. I have so many ideas when it comes to what I want to blog about, that I often have hard time deciding what not to include. As always, feel free to write about what you would like to see.

Vidjeli ste (više-manje) kako sam provela veljaču...sada mi recite, kakav je vama bio prošli mjesec? Veselite li se proljeću? Jeste li jedva dočekali ožujak ili vam je vrijeme prebrzo proletjelo? Ne zaboravite da nam možda i nije još stiglo i da ime za mjesec ožujak potječe od st…

Wearing the First Dress I Ever Made: A Grey Midi Dress

Here it is: the first dress I have ever made entirely by myself. I did make some summer dresses in the past, but I had sown them without a pattern and a sewing machine and at any rate I wouldn't call them very accomplished. I mean, they weren't nearly as polished as this dress and they were not nearly as complex to make. I'm very happy with how this dress turned out. I'm even happier I took this sewing course in the first place because now I can make more dresses like this one! If you remember my November highlights post, you might remember that I've mentioned how I've recently finished a beginning fashion tailoring and sewing course with designer Stanka Zovko. 

I promised to show you the dress I made for my course 'graduation'. At the end of this lovely sewing course, you get to choose not only what you're going to make, but also the material and the pattern.  The sewing pattern is typically chosen from one of the sewing magazines this designer has …

How To Style Animal Print? + An Autumnal Fairy Tale at Ethno Village Near Medugorje

With winter at our doorstep, I think it's important to make the most out of the left over autumn days. With that in mind, my husband and I payed another visit to our favourite (still not officially opened!) ethno village in vicinity of Medugorje. I wrote about this eco/ethno village a number of times, so if you want to know more (or just see more photographs) feel free to check out my old posts herehereherehere and here.  Autumn is Herzegovina is always gorgeous, and this year hasn't been an exception. We had some sudden weather changes and drastic changes of temperature, but I would still describe this autumn as a beautiful one. The Sunday this photographs were taken on was rather gorgeous, so I'm certainly glad we went on this little trip. I know I'm repeating myself, but I do cherish moments like this. Every time I step into this little village, I feel as if the time has stopped or rather like I have just travelled in time. It's such a charming place! I h…
