I was always a sucker for a good DIY. I was DIY-ing my clothes all the way through school. As a teen, I was always cutting, sewing, changing every item I had in my closet to be more unique or to make it fit whatever idea or trend I was into back than. I think that is how I fell in love with fashion design and later with the jewelry design. Honestly, my jewelry line started as DIY.

I did these jeans a while back and I loved them, so I thought it would be fun to share this post if you have some spare time and want to make something unique for yourself. And as we all now, pearl denim is always a good choice. All you need is a pair of jeans, some pearls, and beads that you can find in any craft store, needle and embroidery thread. Optionally, if you are not in a mood for embroidering or you’re not as crafty with the needle, you can use flat back pearls and a hot glue gun for the same effect. All you need to do is to arrange the pearls in whatever way you want and sew/glue them. I personally find sewing relaxing and it’s kind of therapeutic for me, so I did it this way, and I love the result. What do you think?

I don’t feel overly creative these days (again), perhaps because my brain is  (again) overwhelmed with ideas and projects that I want to realize, things I want to learn, daily work with clients (God bless them) and lack of time for myself (again)I guess that anyone who knows me, is likely to say that its not true, but I believe that every creative knows what I mean. It seems that all I do lately ends up with just another creative blockade, so I tried to break it a few days ago. 

I wanted to shoot some new jewelry for our brand, JewelryLanChe and decided to leave my comfort zone, and to try something that I don’t normally do (but my sister does, and she is really good at it) – self portraits

Let me tell you, taking photos of yourself that aren’t selfies, isn’t at all easy as it looks like. It was just before the rain and the wind was blowing so hard that my tripod fell down, along with the cameraI almost fell on the heels 3 times and twisted the ankle that I just recovered… That are the things you can’t see, but I guess that the final result isn’t that bad. It was fun for sure, and I will definitely try to do more of these in the future. What do you think?

Whenever I have some free time, I like to make my own desktop and phone wallpapers, just for fun, and because I believe pretty wallpaper can help inspire me whenever I don’t feel like working. So, I decided to share some of them for you to use, just click the link below the image and save it.

Running late, as always, I keep promising myself that I won’t but it keeps happening, I don’t know how… Seriously, March flew by so fast, I can’t believe it’s April already. And spring, spring is here, finally. I’ve been working on quite a few new projects for my lovely little blog, and if you want to be sure not to miss them, feel free to subscribe. Anyway, here is the printable calendar for this month.

i guess this is an outfit post

So, to be honest, I never ever thought I will do an outfit post, or feel comfortable in front of the camera, for that mater. But somehow, over the time, I learned to love it. (I blame Instagram for it, tho. Before, I used to be all about taking photos of random cats and buildings I thought looked cute. It’s strange how I never thought of studding architecture.)

But, let’s stick to the point. As you may know, (and let’s be honest, all of you reading this probably does), together with my sister Milica, I own a jewelry label named JewelryLanche and our modern bohemian agate bracelets are something we are known for. They are mostly one of a kind pieces, and I wanted to show how you can style these bracelets with almost anything and at any time of the year.

 

 

Preferably, you will be wearing these at Coachella, but if you can’t make it this year, (me neither, I know, what a bummer) here is an idea how you can wear them.

 

 

So as I said, I never thought I will be an outfit post kind of  blogger, but I love these photos too much not to share them. I guess that’s the thing with self promotion, you will feel bad about it at first, and then you get use to it, and than you are unstoppable.

This one will be short, maybe because I spent three days on previous post (ok, part of it was procrastinating, but don’t go into boring details, you don’t want to hear about that, we’re always keeping it together and being creative and shit). Or maybe this post will be short because time is money and you are already running late, because the new month has started, and where is the planner, Željka, where is the planner?

Well, if you don’t know, March is my birthday month, and as all Aries babies, I love my birthday, and that is why I have not one, but two different planners for you, one minimal and the other one closer to my heart, because it’s time for me to confess to myself that I will never be that Scandinavian minimalism type of girl, no mater how much I try. And also, a friend stated that you will prefer the planers starting week with Monday, so that is what you get this month. (tnx Tamara)

Feel free to tell me what would you like to download next, maybe a desktop background? Desktop background with calendar? Or phone background?
