ROVINJ, WHERE LOVE LIVES

7CA4DE18-710B-4A95-A660-533F337F6957

Dođu dani kada sva ona sanjarenja o ljetnim danima, bezbrižnim šetnjama, opuštenim ispijanjima kave, pretjerivanju u sladoledima, postanu stvarnost. Uživala sam u ljetu, disala punim plućima i punila baterije, stoga vam sada počinjem pisati o svojim ljetnim avanturama. Krenimo s obilaskom najromantičnijeg gradića u Istri… Rovinj.


So here comes the days when all those dreams about summer days, carefree walks, simple enjoying in coffee, overdosing in ice cream, become reality. I was enjoying summer, breathing and living, so now I will start writing about my summer adventures. Let’s start with the visiting the most romantic little town in Istria… Rovinj.

Kao što možete vidjeti na prethodnim fotkama, stara jezgra ovoga grad ispunjena je uskim uličicama, visokim, starim zgradama. Ako zatvorite oči na tren, Rovinj ćete zapamtiti po mirisu čistog rublja, pečene ribe i mora, te po dječjem žamoru i starim “nonama” koje sjede ispred svojih ulaza i pričaju na hrvatsko-talijanskom jeziku o nesnošljivosti turista i o “krepivanju” na ljetnim vrućinama. Sve to pridonosi čarima Rovinja. Neke se njegove značajke nikada neće promijeniti, ostat će autentičan zauvijek, te je upravo zato poseban i jedinstven.


As you can see, the old town of Rovinj is filled with tiny streets and old, pretty high and narrow buildings. If you close your eyes for the moment you will remember this town by the smell of fresh and clean laundry, grilled fish and salted sea. Oh, also by the sound of childrens swirling and old “nonna” (grandmas) talking in croatian-italian about the tourist’s insatiability and surviving the heatwave (read.”krepivanje” :D). All of this things are the beauties of Rovinj and it will never change so that is way it will always be unique and authentic.

Ove lokacije u Rovinju mnoge će podsjetiti na Veneciju. Uvijek ostanem zapanjena prizorima zapljuskivanja morskih valova o zidine ovih kuća koje su nečiji domovi. Posljednja fotka u nizu, moja je omiljena. Naime, riječ je o malenom dućanu gdje jedna divna gospođa prodaje unikatne odjevne komade. Njezin kutak tik do mora postao je, usudila bih se reći, najfotogeničnije mjesto u Rovinju! Štoviše, ako želite uloviti trenutak za fotku, morate čekati svoj red. ;)


These locations remind many of the Venice. I am always stunned by the scattering of the waves on to someone’s home. The last photo in this sequence is probably my favourite. It shows you a small shop where one lovely lady is selling her unique clothing. I can say that her cute corner became the most photogenic place in Rovinj. Moreover, if you want to take a photo you will have to wait for your turn. ;)

Ako ste ljubitelji talijanskih, romantičnih gradova uz more ili čak provansalskih, onda morate posjetiti Rovinj. Obzirom da sam rođena u Puli i svako ljeto sam ondje, uvijek odvojim vrijeme i za dan u Rovinju. Šetnja njegovim uličicama je totalno umirujuća. Muči li vas stres, problemi, ovdje ćete zasigurno zaboraviti na sve negativne misli. Ovaj post nije nikakva reklama niti promidžba, već moj iskreni doživljaj Rovinja. Nadam se da ću jednog dana ovdje imati neki maleni stan, kako bih uživala u ljetnim danima i ispunila se srećom i mirom.


If you like Italian romantic places or even Provence, then you definitely must visit this town. I am born in Pula, near Rovinj, so I come here every year and I always find time for spending the day Rovinj. Long walks through these streets are so calming. If you are under some pressure or if you feel stressed I promise you that here you will find peace and you will get rid of negative thoughts. This is post is not some advertise this is just my personal experience of this lovely little town. I really hope that one day I will have some small apartment here so that I can come here at the summer season to enjoy life and to threat myself with happiness!

I da, nikako nemojte propustiti uživanje u ispijanju macchiata i Pašarete (gazirano piće proizvedeno u Istri i može se kupiti samo u Istri). Ukoliko se odlučite posjetiti Rovinj, grad u kojemu živi ljubav, nadam se da ćete maksimalno uživati kao ja!


Oh, and don’t forget to find some time for macchiato and Pasareta (type of soda produced in Istria and you can only drink it in Istria)! I hope you will enjoy staying here if you decide to visit Rovinj, the town where love lives.

BE YOURSELF

Dugo vam nisam pisala, zatrpali su me ispiti i ostale obveze, no evo me! Nakon duge i hladne zime, napokon nam je stiglo, moje omiljeno godišnje doba, proljeće. Doduše, ovdje u Gdanjsku vedri dani malo su kasnije stigli, ali bolje ikad nego nikad, zar ne?! Vrijeme je idealno za ugodne šetnje plažom i kavicu na suncu u dobrom društvu s dragim. Za takve prigode uvijek biram casual varijante, poput ove koju vidite danas. Kao što znate njegujem ležeran, elegantan stil i najbitnije mi je da se uvijek osjećam udobno u onome što nosim! Volim kroz outfit iskazati svoju osobnost, stoga ne volim kada netko potpuno prekopira moje kombinacije, jer to bi značilo da želi kopirati i moju osobnost. S druge strane, presretna sam kada vidim da sam nekoga nadahnula i inspirirala, to mi laska, smatram da time iskazujete poštovanje i to me zaista usrećuje. Što vi mislite o ljudima koji nemaju svoj stil i stavove u životu? Ja bih rekla da je to danas velik problem zbog enormnog utjecaja društvenih mreža. Ljudi koji u potpunosti kopiraju druge definitivno imaju problema sa vlastitim samopouzdanjem. Također, smatram, da bismo se svi trebali puno više baviti samima sobom i raditi ono što nas dubinski usrećuje, a manje se baviti tuđim životima. Tek kada spoznat ćemo svoju sreću i zavoljeti sebe i tada ćemo bez imalo zavisti i ljubomore, istinski voljeti druge, te biti sretni zbog njihove sreće. Ok, otišla sam predaleko, ali posljednjih me dana ljuti instagram i preeeviše djevojki i žena koje su izgubile svoje JA i utapaju se u svim današnjim trendovima. …U svakom slučaju, želim vam da uživate u ovim prekrasnim, proljetnim danima. Živite svaki dan na najbolji mogući način, jer nikad više nećete imati prilike proživjeti isti! ;)


Hello, hello, long time no see! I had a lot of exams and duties to get done and I had no free time for literally nothing but work. So, finally here I am now! After long and cold, winter, spring has arrived. Although, here in Gdansk a little bit late, but better ever then never, am I right?! The weather these days is perfect for long walks at the beach and for drinking coffee at the sun. For occasions like these, I prefer casual outfits just like this one you can see in today’s post. As you already know, my style is usually casual and elegant and the most important thing for me, when we are talking about fashion, is to feel comfortable in everything I am wearing. I also think that through my style I can show you my personality. Because of that I really do not like copycats. As long as you are being inspired, that is good and actually it is flattering. But when you start to copy everything from someone else, well that is a problem, that is a lack of your own personality and that is definitely not good for you! What do you think about people who haven’t got opinions about anything in life and they are just like “go with the flow”? I would say that is a big problem nowadays because of huge influence of social networks. I also think that we should all work on ourselves much more and find out what really makes us happy and satisfied. When we become happy with ourselves, then we can truly be happy for others without any jealous and greed. Ok, enough for today, haha, but I had to share my thoughts with you because I was really mad last few days watching girls and women on Instagram which get lost in all these trends, etc. Anyway, enjoy in this lovely spring and try to live each day in the best way you can, because you won’t have another chance to live it again! ;)

Kao što već jako dobro znate, njegujem prirodan i jednostavan stil šminkanja. Nastojim da moja koža stalno diše i da nije izložena teškim puderima i sl. Svaka čast onim ženama koje imaju vremena i živaca svaki dan izdvojiti 45 minuta za šminkanje. Ja to vrijeme radije iskoristim za tjelovježbu, tuširanje pa tek onda šminkanje u trajanju od cca 5 minuta, haha. Dakle, nakon nanošenja preparata za njegu kože lica (o tome ću u sljedećem beauty postu) nanosim isključivo kvalitetne proizvode od šminke koji odgovaraju mojoj koži koja je vrlo suha. Kao podlogu prije nanošenja tekućeg pudera koristim Giorgio Armani ‘Maestro UV’ primer i Caudalie Beauty Elixir, obožavam ih jer je zahvaljujući njima make up postojan čitav dan a koža izgleda zaglađeno i sjajno! Zatim, nanosim Noelle četkicom Clinique Superbalanced puder u nijansi ’01 Petal’ i Sephora korektor u nijansi ’20 Cream’ na područje ispod i oko očiju. Fiksiram isključivo sa La Roche-Posay puderom u kamenu u nijansi ’13 Sand Beige’. Što se tiče bronzera, rumenila i highlightera, trenutno je moj favorit Becca x Chrissy Teigen ‘glowing’ paleta, apsolutno savršene nijanse za plavuše! Obzirom da imam ekstenzije trepavica koje radim kod Laure Žalac, na oči ne nanosim tuš niti puno sjenila, osim ponekad kad je u pitanju posebna prigoda. Za dnevni look, iz Sephorine palete sjenila nanosim samo malo ‘Vanilla’ nijanse na kapke i osjenčam obrve. Finalno, iscrtam rub usana Catrice olovkom u boji mesa i zatim nanosim moj omiljeni Giorgio Armani ‘lip magnet’ u nijansi br.508. Eto drage moje, ovih par proizvoda potrebno je za moj dnevni, prirodni look! Kakav make up vi birate ?


So, as you already know I am always choosing natural look. I am trying to make my skin looking fresh and actually I avoid putting a lots of make up on my face. Instead of doing my make up for 45 minutes like some women does, I choose workout, shower and then doing my make up in a 5 minutes haha. So before daily make up routine I always put some skin care products but I will tell you more about in my next beauty post. Have to admit that I have really dry skin so I have to be sure that my cosmetic is quality and effective. As a base before liquid foundation I am using ‘Maestro UV’ primer by Giorgio Armani and Caudalie Beauty Elixir and I love them because my skin looks so fresh and glowing and my make up is stable for whole day. One of my favourite liquid foundations is Clinique and I am using it in ’01 Petal’ shade. Also for area under my eyes I am using concealer by Sephora in ’20 Cream’ shade. To fix it all I choose compact powder by La Roche Posay in ’13 Sand Beige’ shade. Talking about bronzers and highlighters, my currently pick is glowing palette by Becca x Chrissy Teigen it is the best for blondes. As I have lashes extension which I am doing at Laura Žalac’s place, I don’t put a lot of make up on my eyes only a little bit of shade ‘Vanilla’ from Sephora’s eye shadows palette. And to finish my make up I am doing my lips with Catrice lip pencil and the best matt lip magnet by Giorgio Armani no. 508. So this is it, I need only few minutes and good products for my daily make up routine and for making my skin looking natural. And what about you, which type of make up are you choosing?

MY ELIXIRS OF HAPPINESS

Što je sreća? Za mene je sreća osjećaj mira i ljubavi. Za nju je potrebno, ne biste vjerovali, malo… Sami krojimo svoju sreću i kreiramo današnjost. U ovom ubrzanom svijetu, gdje smo primorani “preživljavati”, natjecati se sa svima pa i samima sobom, dokazivat se, neprestano učiti, padati i uzdizat se, borit se, bitno je na kraju dana zaspati mirno i s osmijehom na licu. Često nailazim na ljude koji stalno nešto “gunđaju” o tome kako su nesretni, kako nemaju vremena za same sebe, za ljubav, za obitelj, prijatelje, niti išta drugo što ih usrećuje. Ne slažem se s njima, vrijeme za sreću uvijek postoji. Tužno je što je malo ljudi zaista prepoznaje.

Ako niste znali Danska slovi kao najsretnija država Europe, i to ne zato jer tamo žive bogataši , ne nije novac njihov izvor sreće. Izvor sreće u Danaca je upaljena svijeća, šalica toplog čaja uz kamin i kvalitetnu knjigu, pjenušava kupka, zagrljaj voljene osobe, večera u društvu najmilijih ili jednostavno šutnja i pogled u vazu mirisnih ruža. I Danci rade, školuju se, imaju djecu, obveze, ali znaju što je u životu zaista i jedino bitno; zdravlje, sreća, ljubav i mir! Sve je ostalo samo prolazno.

I ja sam živjela “gunđajući”, nadilazila sam svoje granice izdržljivosti, stavljala sam na svoja leđa ono što moram i ono što ne moram, ništa nisam ostavljala za sutra. Svaki ispit morao je biti savršeno pripremljen, svaki zadatak na poslu uspješno odrađen, svaki prijatelj imao je moju energiju maksimalno na raspolaganju. Ali gdje sam u tome svemu bila JA? Ja sam bila na posljednjem mjestu samoj sebi, a trebala sam biti na prvome i ne, nije tu riječ o sebičnosti, već o ljubavi prema sebi. Ako voliš sebe, voljet ćete i drugi! Imala sam nekoliko prijateljica koje su svakodnevno crpile moju energiju, umjesto da se međusobno uveseljavamo, nasmijavamo i podržavamo, one su imale potrebu natjecati se sa mnom u svakom segmentu mog života. To natjecanje preraslo je u zavist i u brojanje “tko je kome napravio više usluga”. Trpila sam, šutila, govorila ma to je život, to su odnosi, to je prijateljstvo. Ne! Lagala sam samu sebe. Sve dok jedan dan nisam progledala i shvatila da je dosta.

Ponekad “okrenuti novu stranicu” u životu znači samo okružiti se ljudima koji su te zaista vrijedni, koji šire pozitivu i koji shvaćaju što je u životu bitno. Tada je počeo jedan novi dio života u kojemu sam postala najsretnija. Zašto? Zato jer više ne pristajem na manje od onoga što zaslužujem, zato što mi nije bitno jel’ se moja sreća vidi svima na instagramu, zato jer sam naučila živjeti u svoja 4 zida i biti i tada ispunjena, zato jer imam ljude velikih srca oko sebe. Također, prestala sam “gunđati”, a počela se ohrabrivati i zadavati si nove izazove koji me tjeraju naprijed. Svaki dan odvojim vrijeme samo za sebe, bilo da se radi o tjelovježbi, doručku uz čitanje vijesti, omiljenoj seriji, šetnji, večeri s dragim, ispijanju čaja s frendicom ili kavica s mamom… Sve su ovo MALE STVARI u životu! I nitko mi ne može reći da za njih nema vremena.

Nemojte zaboraviti jedno; nikada više nećete imati priliku proživjeti današnji dan. Stoga, dobro razmislite kako ćete ga proživjeti! ;)

Još jedan post u pariškom duhu… Jedva čekam vratiti se u ovaj grad! Iako je dan bio kišovit, to nas nije spriječilo da prošetamo najpoznatijom ulicom Pariza, Avenue des Champs-Élysées. Sa svih strana blješte luksuzni dućani, francuski restorani i kafići, gomila automobila juri cestom, turisti se slikaju na svakom koraku i uživaju u slasticama iz Laduree-a. Tako je to otprilike izgledalo… Sve se okolne ulice “sastaju” i vode do slavnog Slavoluka pobjeda “Arc de Triomphe”. Ovaj spomenik u samome središtu Pariza, više je nego veličanstven. Golemost i savršenost svakog detalja uklesanog u spomeniku pomalo je zastrašujuća. Jednostavno predivno! Oko Slavoluka vlada opći kaos u prometu. Doduše. meni i ostalim turistima je to bio kaos, za Parižane se radi o normalnoj, laganoj vožnji. Trube, pretiču, od jedne trake stvore 3, itd… Svaka im čast, hehe! U svakom slučaju, bilo je to poslijepodne za pamćenje! Obzirom da je bilo poprilično hladno i kišovito, ovaj genijalni Zarin džemper me spasio, kao i gležnjače (najudobnije na svijetu)! Što kažete na ovaj outfit? Moram priznati, ja sam se osjećala pomalo poput Parižanke u njemu. Većina Parižanki je uvijek u jednostavnim, casual izdanjima, a prugaste majice ili puloveri su omiljeni. Biste li se vi odlučili kupiti neki ovako upečatljivi pulover? :)


One more post with a touch of Paris… I literally can’t wait to come back to this city! Although the day was rainy, my boyfriend and I decided to take a long walk through the most famous Parisian street ‘Avenue des Champs-Élysées’. You can see everywhere around luxury stores, french restaurants and bars, a bunch of cars chasing the streets, tourists taking photos at the every step and enjoying the sweets from Laduree. This is how it looks like being in the ‘Avenue des Champs-Élysées’. All the surrounding streets lead to the famous Triumph of Victory; ‘Arc de Triomphe’. This monument looks really incredible and magnificent! Its greatness and perfection is actually a bit scary. Absolutely amazing! There is all around the Triumph general chaos in traffic. I mean, it was a chaos for me and all the other tourists, but for French people it was an usually traffic :D. All in all, it was an afternoon to remember! :) As I said it was rainy and cold so this beautiful sweater from Zara literally saved me. And those ankle boots too, so comfy! What do you think about this outfit? I must admit that I felt a little bit French wearing it, haha! Would you be brave enough to buy some colorful piece like my sweater?

Bonjour! Prvi post u novoj godini! Sretna 2018. svima od srca! Želim vam zdravlje i ljubav, a sve ostalo će s time doći. Kako ste proveli blagdane? Jeste li sada u siječanjskoj depresiji, hehe? Božić i doček Nove provela sam u Zagrebu sa mojim najmilijima, a tjedan prije samoga Božića provela sam s dragim u predivnom Parizu. Taj je tjedan bio definitivno najbolji tjedan u 2017. godini! Danas ću vam pokazati jedan dan koji smo proveli ondje. Svi me pitaju što me se najviše dojmilo, ali ja zaista ne mogu ništa izdvojiti, jer me sve oduševilo. Smješteni smo bili na savršenoj lokaciji, sve nam je bilo blizu, metroima smo se morali voziti vrlo kratko. Naš dom taj tjedan bio je predivan hotel “Villa Opera Drout”, svima ga toplo preporučam. Hotel odiše neodoljivim, šarmantnim pariškim stilom, a osoblje je iznimno ljubazno! Odmah blizu hotela je stanica za metro, a i vrlo dobri restorani i kafići. Jedan dan smo čak išli pješice od hotela do Louvra (dobar trening :D). Dane smo provodili istraživajući najznačajnija pariška mjesta, restorane, slastičarne i kafiće i naravno proučavajući njegove znamenitosti i povijesne spomenike. Bilo je to nekoliko hedonističkih dana. Uživali smo u francuskim delicijama posebno u restoranu Lipp, a doručak je bio najslađi u Cafe de Flore. Francuski kroasani zaista su daleko najukusniji! Naravno, uživali smo i u Laduree-u, voljela bi kada bih vam mogla dočarati okuse slastica koje smo ondje jeli. Božićne darove za naše najmilije i najbolje, francuske parfeme pronašli smo u Printempsu, Galeries Lafayette i Le Bon Marcheu. Mislim da svatko tko je posjetio Pariz može reći kako ondje apsolutno svaka zgrada izgleda veličanstveno! Osim Eiffelovog tornja, Louvre-a, katedrale Notre – Dame i nacionalne opere Garnier, moram priznati da mi se možda najviše svidjelo u Versaillesu, gdje smo posjetili palaču i divili se francuskim, kraljevskim vrtovima. U jednom od nadolazećih postova pokazat ću vam kako nam je ondje bilo! Sada pregledajte još jednom fotke iz ovog posta, posjetite moj Instagram profil i zamišljajte da šećete ulicama Pariza. Dragi i ja odlučili smo da ćemo se svakako vratiti ondje, ali u proljeće kada sve procvate i sunce zagrije! Pišite miiiiii! :) Au revoir!


Bonjour! First post in new year! I wish you all a happy 2018th! Let it be full of love and health and everything else will come with it! How did you spend your holidays? Are you now in a January depression, hehe? So I spent Christmas and NYE with my family and friends in Zagreb and a week before Christmas I was with my boyfriend in Paris. This was for sure the best week in 2017.! Today you can see one day from Paris. Everyone keep asking us what made the biggest impression on us and honestly I can not choose one thing because everything was so beautiful and amazing. Our home for this few days was real Parisian hotel “Villa Opera Drout”, I can recommend you all this hotel it is so nice and staff is really kind! The metro station is few minutes walking from the hotel and all around there you can find amazing restaurants and bars. Everything was really close to our hotel, one day we were walking to the Louvre Museum (quite good training :D). We were spending days enjoying french restaurants, bars and of course sightseeing all the amazing Parisian sights and monuments. Definitely my favourite restaurant was “Lipp”, omg food there is more than delicious. Croissants and hot chocolate is the best in Cafe de Flore and all other sweets and coffee of course in famous Laduree. I can say and that’s for sure that french croissants are the best in the whole world! Shopping was the best in malls; Printemps, Gallery Lafayette and Le Bon Marche, there we bought some Christmas gifts for our families and friends. I was amazed by the pure french perfumes and I am so happy to have few of them now! Anyway, I think that anyone who have been in Paris can describe it with one word: “magnificent”! Except the Tour Eiffel, Louvre, Cathedral Notre – Dame and National opera Garnier, I have to admit that maybe I have liked the most palace in Versailles. I will show you in one of my next posts how was in beautiful Versailles. But, until then go through this photos once again and don’t forget to check out my Instagram also. Imagine that you are walking through the streets of Paris… My love and I decided that we will definitely visit Paris but in spring when all blooms and sun is shining! Write me your thoughts! Au revoir! :)

Ponedjeljak nije mogao završiti na bolji način! Moj omiljeni hrvatski dizajner Ivan Alduk organizirao je božićni party koji je bio, malo je reći, savršen! Atmosfera je bila prava blagdanska; smijeh, glazba, svijeće, punč, kuhano vino i obilna večera koja je završila desertom pod nazivom “Zimska čarolija priča svoju priču” možete samo zamisliti kakvog je divnog okusa bilo! U društvu opuštene ekipe, provela sam veselu večer i službeno započela vrijeme blagdanskih tuluma. Moram priznati da skidam kapu Ivanu i njegovom timu, naime oni definitivno jedini na našim područjima znaju prirediti ovakve proslave na apsolutno svjetskoj razini.

Osim što organizira genijalne partije, jedinstven je u svojemu radu i kreacijama. Sinoć sam nosila haljinu s njegovim potpisom, kojom sam i više nego oduševljena. Kao da je šivana po meni i totalno je po mom ukusu; damska i elegantna, vječna! Za makeup se pobrinula moja omiljena vizažistica Izabela Žalac, a romantične valove napravili su stručnjaci iz Ruža Instituta. Što kažete moj jučerašnji look? Biste li i vi odabrale ovakvu haljinu za neki glamurozan događaj? Više fotki možete vidjeti na mom Instagram profilu i u članku na Journal.hr

Još samo nekoliko dana i Božić je! Ne mogu dočekati blagdane! :) Prvi snijeg je pao, bunda je obvezan odjevni predmet. Ja preferiram bunde od umjetnog krzna. Ova koju vidite u današnjem postu je sa Šaptača cipelama i odlična je, mekana i topla! Također, kapice su nezaobilazan modni dodatak. “All black” kombinaciju “začinila sam” upečatljivim brošem i čizmicama kako bih malo razbila monotoniju crne. Volim ponekad odjenuti ovakav outfit bez boja, iako mi je u glavi sve šareno i šljokasto baš kao i ukrasi na boru! :D A vi? Btw. Gdje ćete provesti praznike? Ja se spremam u Pariz i jaaaako se veselim! Jedva čekam pokazati vam kako mi je tamo bilo! Međutim, vraćam se kući na Badnjak, jer Badnju večer i Božić najljepše je provesti u toplom domu uz obitelj, zar ne? :)


Just a few days left until Christmas! I can not wait! I am super excited about it and festive vibes are all around me! First snow has fallen so my faux fur coat is a must these days. This one which you are watching in this post is from Šaptač cipelama and I love it, it is so warm and fluffy! Also, hats are my favourite accessories. I have broke the monotony of this all black combination with a striking sparkly brooch and ankle boots. I kinda like wearing black outfits but my mind is quite colorful and shiny just like this Christmas tree! :) And what about you, do you like wear it too? Oh and btw., where will you spend the holidays? I am going to Paris and really can’t wait! I will write you how I was spending time there! :) But at the Christmas Eve I am coming home to be with my family because that is what Christmas is all about, right? :)

Prosinac i adventsko vrijeme u Gdanjsku… Moram priznat da je preeehladno! Ali sviđa mi se to, ugođaj je pravi zimski, blagdanski. Iako sam prehlađena i već mi je dosta aspirina, čajeva i kapi za nos, uživancija je ležati u toplom i gledati božićne filmove dok vani lagano pada snijeg. Obzirom da su niske temperature počele, iz ormara sam izvadila svoju toplu bundicu od umjetnog krzna, jedino me ona može ugrijati u ovim hladnim danima prosinca. Uvijek ću se držati one “manje je više”, stoga danas možete vidjeti jednu od mojih omiljenih zimskih kombinacija; bunda, topao pulover, ‘mom fit’ trapke i tenisice. Koji outfit vi birate najradije za ležernu kavu u gradu dok je ovako hladno? :)

P.S. Blagdani se bliže, ako još ne znate što poklonite pogledajte moj prethodni post! Primjerice, ovaj Daniel Wellington sat koji nosim može biti odličan dar, bacite oko na njihovu web stranicu jer imaju super blagdansku ponudu, plus iskoristite kod ‘lucissima’ za 15% popusta! ;)


December in Gdansk… I have to admit that it’s sooo cold here! But I kinda like it because now I have real holiday feeling. Although I am sick and I am tired of all the pills and teas I have drunk, I like being in warm bed, watching Christmas movies while it’s slowly snowing outside. So the winter is here and it is time to take my faux fur coat out of the closet. Only this coat keeps me warm during these cold days. I will always say “less is more” so today you can see one of my favourite casual outfits for winter; fur coat, sweater, ‘mom fit’ jeans and sneakers. And which combination do you choose for decemberishhhh cozy days? :)

P.S. If you still don’t know what to buy for your dearest ones for this Christmas check out my latest post. For example, this watch I am wearing today from Daniel Wellington can be a perfect gift. Check out their holiday offer and also use my discount code ‘lucissima’ for 15% off! ;)
