What I'm reading at the moment + What I Wore for IWD (One Skirt, Two Outfits)

Spring is in the air. Well, sort of. It's kind of cold, but we won't let stop us, will we? We can always snuggle with a nice book. Speaking of which, this is the book I'm reading at the moment. All the Kings's Men by Robert Penn Warren. Published in 1964, it is considered a classic. Warren even got a Pulitzer for this novel. So far, this novel didn't disappoint me. It talks about a rise of a politician Willie, but the story itself is told from a perspective of Jack, who works for Willie. The narrative pattern resembles that of The Great Gatsby. I do like the way this book is written. The style of writing makes me think of Faulkner. I haven't finished it yet, so I can't give you a recommendation or anything like that. Are you reading anything at the moment? I have to level with you and say that I haven't done as nearly as much reading this month as I usually do. I could say it is because I had a lot of medical exams, but that would be just an excuse. The truth is that I'm having troubles concentrating on reading, something that doesn't usually happen to me, no matter how hectic things might get.  So, I think my slower reading pace has nothing to do with whatever has been going on in my life. Maybe I'm just going through a reader burnout. I've read so many books in January and February, it's really no wonder. Do you ever get a reader's burnout?

Happy Sunday ( One Skirt, Two Outfits) #modaodaradosti

Hello there! I'm Ivana and I'm a coffeeholic. I'm not so much addicted to caffeine as to coffee as such. I mean I love caffeine (who doesn't) but I can do without it and if I must, I'll drink decaf. I love coffee in all shapes and forms. I love drinking coffee and I like eating sweets and cakes that contain coffee. Sometimes I make cakes with coffee. Having a cup of coffee in my hand and a book by my side is pretty much my idea of happiness. Enough about my coffee addiction. Besides talking about what I'm reading at the moment, I'll also show you two outfits. I wore both of them on the same day, on eight of March. I wore the same skirt with both outfits. This skirt is one of my favourites ones. The combination of wool and silk makes it pretty unique. I don't think I have another skirt in my closet made from the same textile combination. I remember how surprised I was when I had seen the label. Wool and silk together? Interesting combination of textures, wouldn't you say? Speaking of texture, I'm still wearing my faux fur scarves. As long as it continues to be cold, I will continue to rely on them.

 How I celebrated International Women's Day?

I might have mentioned this, but I do love this celebration. It usually puts me in a good mood, and that day was no exception. In reality, it was such a was a lovely day. I went for a cup of coffee with my husband in the morning. I made a lovely home made meal for lunch (lasagne bolognese if I remember well). After that, we went for a little walk in the nature. Later in the day, I prepared a blog post with reading recommendations.  You have already seen the first outfit I wore in this post. This is the second outfit that I have worn on the International Women's Day. I wore this one for a walk in the nature. We encountered a lovely creature on your walk. Yes, we saw a little hedgehog. I love hedgehogs. They are so cute, aren't they? When I was little my father brought us two hedgehogs to keep as pets. They were so sweet! They would let us pet them and everything. It's amazing how affectionate they can be.

  5. The skirt you styled in both outfits looks very pretty. I like the print on the skirt, especially at its hem. I also like the look of the bright red puffer jacket, and of the white wildflower bouquet. Great pics of the hedgehog too!

  6. I like to read books. I share some books on my blog.

  7. I've heard that book is really good. I've never read it. It's possible to get burn out from anything if you do it too much. LOL You have so many great hobbies though.

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. …
