What are the little things that make you dream about summer? Is it the scent of sunscreen and pine trees? The feeling of salt on your skin? The sound of waves or the song that reminds you of the first time you went to the seaside with your friends? Wind messing with your hair? Or is it your favourite summer dress or pair of bikinis? Maybe it’s just a pattern or a colour that reminds you of summer?
I know I have been away lately, but I got some great news I would love to share with you – I got a job at the City Museum! So I had to dedicate the last few weeks to learning a billion new stuff about history and communication, and now, I am preparing for the exam I have to take to start guiding groups around the museum. But I just have to take some breaks to write something here, right?:)
I may have mentioned before that this year, I’m moving on my own. I spent most of this summer redecorating an old apartment and for the first time, I had no limitations (well, only the finance related ones :)). For the first time, I have no old furniture that the landlord wants to keep, I have no problems with investments as I don’t plan to change the place I live each year that I study … and I can finally have a big comfy bed! More about that later, for now I’ll talk about workspaces. Mine is still in the making, but here is a small preview of my little corner. And along with it, some photos that are currently inspiring me and giving me ideas about what I want my workspace to look like.
We all need some colour in our lives. Weather it’s on our clothes, on our cup of coffee, on our lips or in our notebooks. It makes your day better and brighter, every (yes, even the most boring) thing becomes at least a bit more fun. Imagine reading your college notes without some colourful markers, I get lost in a minute. Colour gives us focus, energy and strength.
Babushka Boutique opened its doors last week on Stari trg 18, Ljubljana. The old part of town is just perfect for a cute store filled with pretty little things. I find it hard to leave the store without buying anything and I definitely always leave it a bit more inspired and creative.
In Slovenia, October doesn’t mean only the beginning of the student year, but it’s also a month filled with many artistic and creative events, among them a festival named Month of Design. Through the month, people can visit exhibitions, seminars, fashion shows and take a moment to admire beautiful objects, from simple everyday product like hand blender to extravagant clothes and amazing interior design. And if you miss one or two events, there are still a lot more you can go to, as you can visit the festival till the beginning of November. All in all, it is worth a visit:) And a great opportunity for me and my two friends from First Blue Shoes and Peach Black to meet, hang out and do something useful at the same time (a.k.a. making us feel productive:)).
Seeing one fashion week each season isn’t enough, don’t you think so? Luckily, I live only two hours away from Zagreb, so it seemed reasonable to start exploring fashion over the border there. Me and my friend Barbara went there on a boring rainy Saturday afternoon to make our day a lot more fun. And we had an awesome evening, full of amazing dresses, beautiful people, pretty pictures and great energy around us. Fashion shows were all amazing, even though there were little similarities between them: some were very feminine, some more classy, some really provocative. The only things they had in common were great models, good music and of course, perfectly designed dresses (yeah, even Toni Rico’s provocative show, which involved a really small amount of clothes, was still awesome, despite the fact it was more connected with politics and culture than fashion).
Here are some flashbacks from that fun Saturday night (oh, and a video is coming soon:))

The event held place in Kino Šiška from 14.-16. 10., but I really didn’t have time before to put together something I could be proud of:). So go on and take a look at beautiful dresses, awesome shoes and gorgeous people! Oh, and let me know what you think about it:)

Fashion week in Ljubljana started on 14th of October, it lasted for three days and was simply amazing. I had never worked at such a big event, so when my friend asked me to shoot some photos and videos for her blog I was really excited and enthusiastic. I have always been interested in fashion design, therefore a camera and a bunch of eccentric dresses dresses seemed like the perfect combination. Oh, and the fact that it was really hard to get a ticket:) But when you are press, you get an excellent sitting or standing spot along with free water … and wine and cocktails and energy drinks and so on before and after the show. Well, somehow you can still catch yourself jealously staring at the invited people with their gift bags:)
All in all, it was an unforgettable experience that produced million of photos:) And here are some of them, first in black and white and if you scroll just a bit more down, you get to see some color photos. The video is just in the making and after that, maybe a trip to some other country’s fashion week:)?
And for the end, some moments from Elle Style Awards:)
