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.

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.

My fashion illustration of the day + book review / Moja modna ilustracija dana + ogled knjige ( Le Diable au corps) 6.12.2016

This morning I read an amazing novel. Le Diable au corps (translated as The Devil In the Flesh) is a novel by Raymond Radiquet. Believe it or not, this was by first book by this French writer. I don't think I even heard of him before, which is odd, but well, it happens. In his time, Raymond was quite a celebrity and he is still considered as one of the important French writers of that period. Did I like this novel? Quite frankly, I loved it. I just couldn't put this novel down. I must have read it an hour or so. I got up a bit more earlier this morning so I actually had time to read it with my morning coffee (it is not a very long novel but still it is amazing how easy it was to find one's self glued to those pages). Perhaps I should make it a habit, getting up more early so I can read more. 
Jutros sam pročitala divan roman. Đavo u tijelu  (naslov izvornika Le Diable au corps) je roman Raymonda Radiqueta. Vjerovali ili ne, ovo je moj prvi roman ovoga pisca. Mislim da nika…

Fashion illustrations of the day (markers)

Hello darlings! How are you? Can you believe that February ends today? This month has just flown by. I know it's the shortest month in the year but still. Today I'm going to share 3 fashion illustrations and sketches with you. The medium for all of them is marker on paper. I don't work with markers that often, but sometimes it is good to try something different. The fashion sketches I'm sharing are all about 3 colours: purple, green and red. Spring is in the air, so this is my reflection on all those trends for the new season. The first illustration shows a girl wearing a purple and blue jumpsuit. The second illustration features a girl wearing a transparent green dress with a top and a skirt under that dress. The third illustration shows two girls in red gowns.


February Recap (art & DIY projects & outfits)

I've put a lot of effort into blogging this February, I hope it shows. As far as the content goes, February was similar to January, mostly a mix of my illustrations and outfit posts (here). This month I was full of positing ideas and I managed to make many of them happen. I feel pretty good about that. The only thing I feel bad about is making my blog monolingual and not using my other languages, but translating texts from English to other languages takes such a long time. It is so much easier to just write in English.  Hopefully, I'll manage to change that and make my blog multilingual again. I need to organize my time better. Fingers crossed. For March I already have a few posts prepared. You can expect more art (mostly fashion illustrations) & outfit posts. 

I shared two DIY projects in February, one about making a Barbie dress, the other was about how to paint a plant container. I don't have any DIY projects prepared for March, but I'm sure that I…
