Hi guys! Remember me? Let’s all (when I say all, I think on my sister, maybe a few friends, ’cause at this point, I doubt that anyone I do not know in real life visit this page), pretend that it hasn’t been 8 months from my last post here. I honestly don’t know what happened, but I’ll blame it on my horoscope.
Was it a busy few months? Yes, and no. But, we’ll talk about it on another occasion (you see, I’m already promising a new blog post, WHO IS THIS GIRL?), this time I am here to talk about the best bag I ever owned.
Anyway, look at this beauty, in the loveliest shade of mustard yellow, big enough to pack everything I might need + my camera, handmade of the most gorgeous Italian leather and with navy blue satin lining and enough pockets (we all know that is important). I instantly fell in love with its strict, business-like form and unexpected color combo.
My dear friends Branka & Vesna make these amazing handbags, so if you ‘re interested, go and check them out here @nicolovesso and I promise you will fall in love with their work just as I did. Oh, and I forgot, look at their stunning packaging!
I really love the fact that in this day and age, small brands can grow their business much easier, as they are often better quality than some established names. I do believe that is important to show support to your local creatives, as one of them myself, I can tell you that that in everything you create with your own hands goes so much love & passion & hard work. What are your favorite small brands? Let me know in comments 🙂
It’s already November and honestly, I can’t wait for 2018 to be over. I know, I seem like a broken record, always talking about the same thing, but I can’t avoid it, and I hope my rants can help to any other creative soul fighting the same battle. In this age of fast internet and even faster trends in every aspect of life, in an age of Instagram, when everywhere around you can see other people living f̶a̶k̶i̶n̶g̶ their best life, other artists being creative in ways you would want to, but you are just not getting there, it is so easy to demotivate yourself and beat yourself down.
This whole year I felt overwhelmed like I never felt before, with everyday life, work, etc. My creativity, something that was always a big part of my identity, seemed to be fleeting. I never had that feeling before and I must admit it scared a shit out of me. And somewhere along the way, I let go and stopped trying to find enough time for my soul to grow. It was so easy to do it, I didn’t even realize and it was already two months since I snapped any photos with my camera. You see, our new apartment has the most beautiful light early in the morning and the whole summer I wanted to do a photo shoot with it, but never got around to actually do it. I had a few ideas on my mind, but I would always find an excuse not to do it. I wasn’t lazy, I just was burned out.
Until yesterday actually. And let me tell you, getting up before 7 even if I didn’t feel like doing it and taking these product photos for my jewelry brand, playing around with the camera and later editing them, was the most fun I had in a while. The rush I get of creating, seeing my idea becoming reality, adrenaline, and serotonin pumping through my blood, almost feel like the long-forgotten magic of the first kiss. Because art, in every form, it is my first love. I think I might end up framing some of these so I don’t ever forget it again.
A few fun wallpapers for you to use and brighten up your desktop and those long office hours. Hope you like them!

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)
