Happy Women's Day! Sretan dan žena!

To all you beautiful girls and women out there, I wish a happy Women's Day! I know I'm a bit late, it already being evening and all, but it is still not too late so I'm taking this opportunity to wish you all the best. I love being a woman. As Oriana Fallaci said, being a woman is so fascinating. Being a women often comes with its a set of challenges, but it also has its perks. Isn't it so? I sometimes feel like we have special powers. Maybe it is just me, but I do believe in certain female powers, for example feminine intuition. 

Today I'm sharing a watercolour painting with you that I find quite inspiring (if you don't mind me describing my own painting in that way). It seems suitable to post it today.  Thank you so much for all your lovely comments and support. Maybe I don't say this often enough, but I really do really appreciate the time you take to stop by this little place of my own.

Svim predivnim  djevojkama, djevojčicama i ženama, želim sretan dan žena! Znam da je već pomalo kasno, već je večer, ali još nije prekasno tako da uzimam priliku da vam poželim sve najbolje. Volim biti žena. Kao što je Oriana Fallaci rekla, biti žena je tako zanimljivo. Biti žena često nosi niz izazova, ali ima i svojih prednosti. Zar nije tako? Ponekad mi se čini da imamo posebne moći. Možda sam samo ja u pitanju, ali doista vjerujem u neke ženske moći, na  primjer žensku intuiciju. 

Danas sa vama dijelim akvarel koji mi je poprilično nadahnjujući (ako to smijem reći za vlastitu sliku). Čini mi se prikladnim objaviti ju danas. Hvala vam puno na svim divnim komentarima i podršci. Možda to ne govorim dovoljno često, ali doista cijenim vrijeme koje uzmete da posjetite ovo moje malo virtualno mjesto.

  10. Great Work to the Womans Day!

    lovely Greetings <3

  11. yay to that!

  12. Your red-haired lady looks very powerful, dear Ivana - ideed a good drawing for the Women's Day! Most of the time I also enjoy it to be a woman - but I don't always enjoy what the world still is doing to women... They are still being oppressed, they are still subjected to violence, women are paid less for the same work, etc. And this, although we call our time progressive ... So there's still a lot to change, I think...
    Hugs to you, my dear,

    1. Men are also being oppressed, underpaid, enslaved and killed every day. Life isn't easy for anyone, both man and women are subjected to violence. When men get raped, they don't even get sympathy and nobody takes the crime seriously. So, honestly I think both men and women are often victims of abuse.

      I don't think our time is progressive at all. I wouldn't call it one of the darkest time of human history but there are many serious issues in the world.

  13. Spero tu abbia passato una buona festa della donna Ivana! E' bellissima la tua illustrazione, e rappresenta bene le parole del tuo post! :)

  14. Happy Women's Day! I wish you all the best, dear)) Huga!

  15. Happy (belated!) International Women's Day Ivana! It was so beautiful reading all of the inspiring message across the web yesterday; anything that brings women together can only make us stronger :) Gorgeous artwork, as always, for obvious reasons I'm in love with the extra long hair length!!

  16. Gorgeous and meaningful artwork like always hun! Happy International Women's Day to you too :)

    XO Jessi,

  17. Happy belated women's day to you too, dear!

  18. Women are definitely a force to be reckoned with.

  19. "Happy Women's Day!" - for you (and your mom) too...;-) ok, my wishes comes a little late, but i think it´s ok.

    interesting painting today. for me it looks like a monokini - nice pice of fashion, although i favorite a bathing suit.

    and gosh, her hair is soooooooooooooooo long.

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…

What To Do in Split City in Autumn/ Winter?

Today I'm back with a list of suggestion of things to do in Split city during autumn and winter. There are many benefits to visiting seaside during the colder months. First of all, it's not as crowded as it is during the summer. Secondly, you can still get all the health benefits that your typical seaside provides. If you're looking for some sea therapy, this might be the perfect place for you. The climate is another thing to consider. The sea, like any large surface of water, does a great job of balancing the temperatures. Mediterranean sea is quite warm and its bay sea (i.e. the Adriatic sea) is no exception. Swimming is not out of the question and even if you're not up for that, you can still enjoy the benefits of mild winter temperatures. One thing I love about the change of seasons is that it gives me a feeling that I'm in a whole new country. If you loved Croatia in summertime, why not try visiting it in wintertime? Moreover, the accommodation is obviously m…


As I mentioned in one of my last post, I'm already thinking about what I might wear for all those festive occasions that are coming up. Autumn and Winter both have its fair share of festivities. Our social calendar can be quite busy this time of year with all the meetings, events, festivities, celebrations, family and work parties. Some of these social occasions come with a black tie dress code, so I decided to prepare some outfit ideas.  A bit of formal wear inspiration for  my readers. All of these photographs were taken the day before yesterday. We're enjoying a rather warm Autumn in Herzegovina but these outfits I'm sharing can be easily be adapted for colder weather. Just throw a warm coat or a blazer over them, and that would be that.  That's what I plan to do once it gets colder. Anyhow, all four dresses I'll be sharing with you today are from Rosegal. This is my second collaboration with this site, if you want you can have a look at my first one here. With…
