My Experience Taking Art Courses at Art Center Michelangelo Mostar

I have  probably mentioned taking art classes at least a few times here on my blog. I've always loved art, so it is hardly surprising that I decided to take an art course. I took me a while to put together this post, because there were a lot of photographs that I wanted to include. In addition, I wanted to write about painting reproductions because that's an essential part of most traditional art courses. I did write about that when I posted Is Reproduction Painting a Good Way to Improve One's Painting Skills?   article so feel free to check that one as well. Over the years, I've showed you a number of paintings I made in those art courses I took, but I wanted to do a special post with most of them (and all of my most recent ones).  Basically, my story with art courses started a few years ago when I signed up for my first art classes at a local gallery here in Mostar. After I got my course degree, we (all the participants) had an exhibition together. It was a lo


                A VISUAL GUIDE TO WEARING JEANS IN AUTUMN AND WINTER Let's face it. Jeans will never go out of style. A good pair of jeans is both comfortable and functional. They have been popular ever since they were invented. Durable, comfortable and reliable, a good pair of jeans is hard to resist. Jeans are pretty fabulous, aren't they?  Today I'm going to talk about my favourite pairs of jeans for Autumn/ Winter and how I happened to find them. Most of the outfit shared will be Autumn ones, but I'll share a few options for colder weather as well. I'll also share a few fashion illustrations of mine because jeans are actually a lot of fun to illustrate. Most jeans I own are vintage, and I either found them in a closet or got them from someone. Oddly enough, I don't shop for jeans that often. I think it has to do with my love for vintage clothes. When I was a kid, my favourite thing to do was to roam through my mother closet. I would do the same

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  here ,  here ,  here ,  here  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
