The beautiful Rovinj

Travel, Uncategorized

Ever since I was a little kid, I’ve loved to visit Croatia in the summer. I love the islands with the clearest water, I love the seaside towns, I love the beautiful nature. This year, I decided to go on a longer vacation than usual. I’ve spend almost two weeks (yeah I know it’s not that long, but for a girl that hasn’t spent more than 5 days at the seaside for the last 10 years, it is) in a camp in Istria, near Novigrad. But I can’t be at one place for too long, I decided to go on a one day trip to a lovely town by the coast, I’ve wanted to visit for a while – Rovinj.

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?

Summer Festival Essentials

I’m one of those girls who would rather spend more money on bras and lingerie than a classic pair of jeans. Beautiful lingerie can make you feel great about yourself and gives you confidence. Sometimes it’s a shame to cover it up and summer temperatures offer the perfect opportunity to show what we are hiding in our underwear drawer. Since summer is filled with festivals I prepared an outfit I would definitely take with me. You only need 5 pieces of clothing to create three looks that will get you in the summer festival mood – two lace bralettes, a silk slip, a long skirt and a jacket. Of course, there are also accessories: flowers, bracelets, rings, flip flops… Life is better in flip flops, right?

What a Cute Life

Hi!

Okay, I know I’ve been neglecting my blog too much because of my studies, but I’ll make it up this month, I promise :). I’ve wanted to write this post for a while, but something always got in my way. But now, my schedule is slowly getting more social-life friendly and I also have time to tell you about some things that happened to me this summer.

Okay, it wasn’t all about college, I spent some time relaxing on the beach, traveling and discovering new places. But still, I blame my work for college

As some of you may found out on my Instagram or my Facebook page, I’ve became part of Cute Life team. I’m taking care of our YouTube channel along with my friend Barbara from First Blue Shoes and also writing some articles. And of course, having a lot of fun! 🙂

Fashion Week Zagreb

Fashion, Photography

Uvodna
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:))

Inspiration

Travel, Video

The summer vacations are unfortunately coming to an end and it is hard to imagine that I will have to get up for classes in the morning in a few short days. My sleeping rhythm is really messed up, as I just came home from Barcelona where the city was still alive at three in the morning. The town was simply amazing, it had everything I love: art, culture, sea, beach … and I could go on and on and on. These kind of experiences really inspire me, so I can’t wait to write about my summer adventures, including two amazing trips, one to London and one to Spain. This will get me through the rainy and cloudy days of October, especially going through the huge bunch of photograhs:) The only thing that prevented me from staying abroad are new projects coming up, making me feel I have a million things to look forward to, even if the college year is starting.

The picture was shot at the amazing Barcelona beach, and here is a link to video I made a week before the trip. Two friends (great dancers, by the way:)) wanted to send a video to a dance festival in Belgium, as the dancers from all over the world had the chance to made up their own version of a famous contemporary choreography, giving them the opportunity to be shown at the 30th anniversary of Rosas danst rosas.

I can really see now that amazing things are all around us, we just need to keep our eyes open:)

Summer project: NewCute

1002768_10201091213515762_434356868_nIn the beginning of the summer, me and my friends decided we want to shoot a video. We already made one as a school project in May and we discovered we love standing behind the camera and spending countless hours behind the computer and putting a video together. So we decided to make a concept and sent it to a fashion store Cute that we all liked. The owner loved the idea, so we packed our cameras, tripods, make up and summer dresses and headed to the seaside.
There we spend the whole day filming and we couldn’t find a free minute to jump in the water, but I really liked this other side of the beach. In the next days we gathered our energy back and spent an afternoon filming on the terrace of Ljublana’s popular cafe called Nebotičnik. Then there was a lot of work in front of us, but we wanted to show the final product as soon as we could, so the video was out in the end of July.
The whole thing was an amazing experience, because we decided to do everything, from acting to filming, ourselves. Here is the final product:)

Thanks to Karin Bizjak for helping and supporting us throughout the whole project and thanks to Nebotičnik Ljubljana for letting us film on their beautiful terrace so we could capture the beautiful city of Ljubljana on the camera.

Let’s do this!

It was a sunny and extremely hot day when I decided I want to write a blog. The idea was in my head for quite some time, but I didn’t know what I would like to write about, or I had too many ideas for the themes, not sure what was the reason:)  So there I was, sitting at my computer, thinking about this summer and how many fun things happened. I visited two music festivals, filmed a video for a fashion store with my friends, visited the seaside for a couple of days, started working in a shop, and spent many nice moments with everyone who mean a lot to me. And only a third of summer holidays has passed by! There is so much stuff I like to do and so many beautiful things around us that I want to gather at one place and show them to the world. So why complicate and search for a narrow theme, I want to write about everything i love:)

Even though I have always been a bit hyperactive, summer gives me a special kind of energy. I don’t know if it is the sunny weather and warm air, or the fact that i fell the best in summer dresses, short pants and over-sized T-shirts, or that I don’t have to study or go to college for three months. For me, summer is not the time I can use to rest, but the time I can use to travel, see new places, meet new people, experience new things and most important do everything I don’t have time for during the school year.

So here is my summer, and all good things that come along with it!

“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. for those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. summer just opens the door and lets you out.
