July through clouds


























I love taking photos of clouds and sunsets. The photos above were taken through the month of July and it would be more photos if I had remembered to take my camera with me when I was going for a walk. I'll put more effort in it in August. :)

Do you like posts like this?

Volim fotografirati oblake i zalaske sunca. Ovih par fotografija nastalo je kroz mjesec srpanj i bilo bi ih i više da sam se sjetila ponijeti fotić u šetnju. U kolovozu ću se više potruditi. :)

Essence - Love is in the air

I present you my new favorite...

Predstavljam vam svoj novi favorit...






I never really liked yellow nail polishes, but recently I have seen a very pretty yellow nail polish, which is the part of the Essence Le Wave Goddess collection, on the Little things by Mala Palčica blog. I went to Muller two days after I saw her post but I couldn't find the nail polish. :( She wrote that we should be able to find the nail polish in the DM stores, I think that is a reason, but never mind. I bought the other yellow nail polish which is the part of the gel nail polish collection and its name is Love is in the air. It's a beautiful light yellow nail polish, perfect for summer in my opinion. At the end of the second day it was a bit damaged on the top of the nails. Its price is 12,90 kn, I believe. 

Nikad nisam pretjerano voljela žute lakove, ali sam nedavno na blogu Little things by Mala Palčica
vidjela jedan zanimljivi žuti lak koji je dio Essence Le Wave Goddess kolekcije. Došla sam u Muller dva dana nakon što sam vidjela njezin post, ali lak nisam našla. :( Vjerojatno jer je napisala da bismo lak trebali pronaći u DM prodavaonicama, ali nema veze. Kupila sam žuti lak koji je dio the gel nail polish kolekcije, a ime mu je Love is in the air. Jedan predivan svijetlo žuti lak, po meni savršen za ljeto. Što se trajnosti tiče, već na kraju drugog dana lak je bio malo oštećen na vrhu noktiju. Cijena mu je 12,90 kn ako se ne varam. 



What do you think about this nail polish?

Iced cappuccino













Hello everyone! Where and how are you spending this hot Sunday?
With temperatures which these days go up to 40 degrees Celsius I'm not in the mood to drink a hot Franck chocolate cappuccino and I don't drink coffee. ;) So, this iced cappuccino is a great choice to cool down a bit and its preparation is quick and easy.

Pozdrav svima! Kako i gdje provodite ovu vruću nedjelju?
S temperaturama koje se ovih dana penju do 40 stupnjeva ne pije mi se baš topli franck cappuccino od čokolade, a kavu ne pijem. ;) Tako da je ovaj hladni cappuccino odličan izbor da se malo rashladim , a priprema se jednostavno i brzo.

You'll need:
1 coffe jar
cappuccino of your choice (I use the Franck chocolate cappuccino)
2 or 3 ice cubes
milk

Za pripremu je potrebno:
1 staklenka od kave
cappuccino po izboru (ja koristim franckov od čokolade)
2 ili 3 kocke leda
mlijeko

For decorating you'll need:
whipped cream (you can make it or buy the one in spray)
nesquik chocolate syrup

Za ukrašavanje:
šlag (možete ga napraviti ili kupiti onaj u spreju)
nesquik sirup

Preparation:
1. Put as much milk as you need to fill the glass in which you will pour your cappuccino later in the jar, add ice cubes and 3 tablespoons of cappuccino (you can put more if you want strong flavour).
2. Put the lid on your jar and shake it.
3. Pour your drink in the glass, add whipped cream and syrup and that's it. Now you have a delicious iced cappuccino. :)

Priprema:
1. U staklenku stavite mlijeka koliko vam treba da napunite čašu u koju ćete kasnije preliti cappuccino, dodajte kocke leda i 3 žličice cappuccina (može i više ako želite malo jači okus).
2. Stavite poklopac na vašu staklenku i lijepo sve promućkajte.
3. Prelijte napitak u čašu, dodajte šlag i preljev i to je to. Dobili ste fini hladni cappuccino. :)

It looks so yummy when my mum makes it.

Testing the Avon Magic Effects matte top coat

In my last new in post I mentioned the Avon matte top coat. Today you'll see it in action. I tried it as a topcoat over my white, black and blue nail polish.

U zadnjem new in postu spomenula sam Avonov mat nadlak. Danas ću vam ga pokazati u akciji. Probala sam ga preko bijelog, crnog i plavog laka. 


When I tried it for the first time the nail polish I had underneath got smudged. It looked something like this, but worse because on the photo below I waited a few moments for it to dry, but it was not enough.

Prvi put kada sam ga probala, lak koji sam imala ispod se razmazao. To je izgledalo nekako ovako, ali još gore jer na donjoj slici sam ipak malo pričekala da se jedan dio osuši, no ne dovoljno.






On the photo above you can see that it's not really a black matte nail polish. The Avon top coat has a purple reflection in the bottle and on the black nail polish you can see that purple particles. How do I use it without smudging the nail polish underneath? I make a brush stroke on the left side of my nails on the one hand,  wait for it to dry a bit, so I don't smudge it like on the picture above, then I make a brush stroke on the right side and usually two brush strokes are enough for covering the entire nail beside the thumb on which I need three. So, I wait for one side to dry and then I do the other side of the nail.

Na gornjoj slici možete vidjeti da ovo baš i nije crni mat lak. Avonov mat nadlak ima neki ljubičasti odsjaj u bočici i na crnom laku možete uočiti te ljubičaste čestice. Kako ga upotrebljavam, a da ne razmažem lak ispod? Na svakom noktu napravim potez kistom na lijevoj strani, pričekam da se to malo osuši, tako da ne razmrljam kao na gornjoj slici, zatim napravim potez kistom na desnoj strani i obično su mi dva poteza kistom dovoljna na pokrijem cijeli nokat osim na palcu gdje mi trebaju tri. Uglavnom, znači pričekam da se osuši jedan dio i onda prelazim na drugi.


Matte top coat did a great job with the white nail polish.

Mat nadlak napravio odličan posao s bijelim lakom. 





I was also happy with this result. Once again I got a beautiful matte effect.

I u slučaju s plavim lakom sam bila prezadovoljna. Još jednom sam dobila predivan mat efekt.

I think that the Avon matte top coat is good, but it's nothing special. I haven't tried any other matte top coats so I have nothing to compare it with. I think that I'll use it as a top coat on lighter nail polishes because I have a feeling that I will achieve better effect and avoid the purple reflection. In the future I will avoid the combination of the black nail polish and this top coat.

Mislim da je Avonov mat nadlak dobar, ali ništa posebno. Nisam probala druge mat nadlake pa ga nemam s čim usporediti. Mislim da ću ga upotrebljavati na svjetlijim lakovima jer imam osjećaj da ću postići bolji efekt i izbjeći ljubičasti odsjaj, a kombinaciju crnog laka i ovog nadlaka ću izbjegavati

Have you tried this top coat? What do you think about it?

Jeste li vi probali ovaj nadlak? Što mislite o njemu?

Finding time to write a diary


I like to write a diary, but in the evening I'm sometimes too lazy and too tired to pick it up and write something. I have already filled one diary and I must say that I'm proud of myself. I don't know when did I got it, but it was a gift from my sister and the first date in it is the 24th of May, 2010 (I was 14 then) and the last date is the 5th of April, 2014! In my first diary I was writing about events and what was I doing that day. My thoughts and feelings were in second plan, but that changed over time. As I get older I realise the point of writing a diary more. I'm so glad that I recorded some things and so happy because I still do that.

Volim pisati dnevnik, ali ponekad sam navečer preumorna i prelijena da ga uzmem i zapišem nešto. Jedan dnevnik sam već popunila i moram reći da sam ponosna na sebe. Ne znam točno kada sam ga dobila, ali bio je to sestrin poklon za rođendan i prvi datum u njemu je 24.5.2010. (tada sam imala 14 godina), a zadnji je 5.4.2014.! U prvom dnevniku sam zabilježila neke događaje i što sam radila neki dan. Osjećaje i razmišljanja sam stavila u drugi plan, ali to se s vremenom promijenilo. Što sam starija to više shvaćam poantu pisanja dnevnika. Drago mi je što sam zabilježila neke stvari i što to još uvijek radim.

It's never too late to start writing a diary and record what's happening in a certain period of your life and have a nice memory. Especially nowadays when we spend a lot of time on social media sharing our life there. It's nice to have something personal and private, something that we write just for ourselves. I know that some people would rather write their diary on their computer or they already keep it on their computer, but I think that we are spending so much time staring at the monitor and that it feels great to pick up a pen and papir and write.

Nikad nije prekasno krenuti pisati dnevnik i zabilježiti što se događa u određenom periodu vašeg života i imati lijepu uspomenu. Pogotovo u današnje vrijeme kada jako puno vremena provodimo na društvenim mrežama i na njima dijelimo svoj život. Lijepo je imati nešto osobno i privatno, ono što pišemo samo za sebe. Znam da bi možda neki radije pisali dnevnik na računalu ili ga možda već vode na računalu, ali smatram da ionako već previše vremena provodimo gledajući u monitor i da je za promjenu odličan osjećaj uzeti olovku i papir i pisati. 

My records always make me smile. I like to read what was I doing on this day the other year, what annoyed me and how did I felt. My style of writing changed as time went by. I'm not saying that you have to write every day because I'm not a good example for that. Sometimes I don't pick up my diary for several days or weeks, but I'm trying to change that.

Moji zapisi mi uvijek izmame osmijeh na lice. Volim čitati o onome što sam radila na ovaj dan neke druge godine, što me živciralo i kako sam se osjećala. Kako je vrijeme prolazilo, tako se mijenjao i moj način pisanja. Ne kažem da morate pisati svaki dan jer ja svakako nisam dobar primjer za to. Ponekad prođe više dana ili tjedana dok ne uzmem dnevnik, ali se trudim to promijeniti. 

Pick up your diary tonight and write what made you happy, your concerns, your thoughts, what were you doing today and everything else you want. If I could turn back time I would start writing it earlier because I can't remember everything. Sometimes a bit of reading and reminding makes me smile! Do you have a diary? :)

Uzmite večeras dnevnik, zapišite što vas je usrećilo, što vas muči, svoja razmišljanja, što ste radili danas i sve drugo što želite. Da mogu vratiti vrijeme krenula bih ga još ranije pisati jer ne mogu sve zapamtiti. Nekad mi malo čitanja i podsjećanja izmami osmijeh na lice! Imate li vi dnevnik? :)

Starting with blushes





I'm not an expert when it comes to blushes, but I know something. I was always afraid of blushes because I thought that I wouldn't know how to apply them or that I will have an ugly peach line on my cheeks and look like a clown.

Nisam stručnjak kada su u pitanju rumenila, ali znam ponešto. Uvijek me bilo strah rumenila jer sam mislila da ih neću dobro staviti i da ću imati jako ružnu crtu i izgledati kao klaun.

I got my first blush in December, 2013 as a part of a suitcase with makeup from Müller which my sister gave me for Christmas. You get one more blush in that suitcase but I wasn't interested in using it because it is really, really pink. For someone who is just starting with blushes, soft shades like peach are great in my opinion. It is hard to overdo with them and you can easily build them up. I'm very happy because of this first positive experience with blushes and when I wasn't sure if I had applied too much I would always ask someone for opinion. Also, at that time I had bought Essence all about matt loose powder which has done an amazing job in blending the blush and my bb creme together so I was sure that there isn't rough transitions.

Prvo rumenilo sam dobila u prosincu 2013. kao dio kofera iz Müllera koji mi je sestra poklonila za Božić. U koferu se dobije još jedno rumenilo, ali nisam bila zainteresirana za njega jer je jako, jako rozo. Za nekoga tko tek počinje s rumenilima, blage nijanse boje breskve su super po mom mišljenju. Teško je pretjerati, a lako ih se nadogradi. Jako sam sretna zbog tog prvog pozitivnog iskustva s rumenilima, a kada nisam bila sigurna jesam li pretjerala uvijek sam pitala nekoga za mišljenje. Također sam u to vrijeme kupila Essence all about matt puder u prahu koji je odlično blendao rumenilo i bb kremu tako da sam bila sigurna da nema nikakvih grubih prijelaza.

When I almost ran out of that blush I had bought the one from Maybelline. The color is similar to the one from Müller. I really like this blush for many reasons: the color, with which you'll hardly overdo, it is not expensive and the packaging is really simple and small.

Zatim sam, nakon što sam već skoro potrošilo rumenilo iz kofera, kupila Maybelline rumenilo. Slične je boje kao ovo iz Müllera. Meni se osobno ovo rumenilo jako sviđa zbog više razloga, a to su boja, s kojom teško da ćete pretjerati, pristupačna cijena i jako jednostavno malo pakiranje. 

And the last blush is from Makup Revolution. This blush has more pink in it than the other two and honestly I don't think it is a blush for beginners. Unlike the blushes in peach colors, this color is more visible on your cheeks and if you haven't applied it good it will not go unnoticed. Less is more when it comes to this blush.

I zadnje rumenilo je od Makeup Revolutiona. Ovo rumenilo ima više rozoga u sebi nego ostala dva i iskreno po meni nije rumenilo za početnike. Za razliku od rumenila boje breskve ova boja će se više vidjeti na vašim obrazima i ako je niste dobro stavili pa neće baš proći neopaženo. Manje je više kod ovog rumenila.

My conclusion is that it is best to start with peach blushes and master the technique of applying the blush with them. You can see the brush that I use to apply my blush on the first photo. It is the brush from the Müller suitcase which still does the job. You can learn how to apply blush with it, but in the future I will buy myself a new brush. I can't say that it is not good, but I know that I will feel the difference when I buy and use more quality brush. And the thing I forgot to mention is how did I even learn to apply the blush. My answer is: YouTube.

I zaključak na kraju. Mislim da je najbolje krenuti s rumenilima boje breskve i usavršiti tehniku s njima. Što se tiče kista s kojim nanosim rumenilo mogli ste ga vidjeti na gornjoj slici. To je onaj kist iz Müller kofera koji me još uvijek služi. Za naučiti kako nanijeti rumenilo me poslužio, ali u budućnosti ću si kupiti drugi kist. Ne mogu reći da nije bio dobar, no znam da ću osjetiti razliku kada kupim i upotrijebim kvalitetniji kist. I ono što sam zaboravila spomenuti je kako sam naučila nanijeti rumenilo. Odgovor na to pitanje je: YouTube.

Favorite songs of the week




































This week I've been listening to three songs over and over again. The first one is River flows in you. One word: perfection. Every time I listen to it I wish that I knew how to play a piano so I could play it. It is really beautiful. I had it on replay in May but then I stopped listening to it and this week I'm listening to it several times per day. When I need something to relax I just hit play on that song and I'm good.

Ovaj tjedan sam stalno slušala 3 pjesme. Prva je River flows in you. Jednom riječju: savršenstvo. Dok ju slušam poželim da znam svirati klavir pa da zasviram. Stvarno je prekrasna. Krenula sam ju stalno slušati još u svibnju pa sam onda prestala i sad ju cijeli ovaj tjedan slušam po više puta na dan. Kad mi treba nešto za opuštanje samo si to pustim.

The second one is Flashlight by Jessie J. I found it by accident on YouTube the other day and since then I've been listening to it constantly. When I like a song I can listen to it all day. What I like about this song is the music and words. Pay attention to her makeup in the video, I like it a lot!

Druga pjesma je Flashlight od Jessie J. Slučajno sam ju pronašla na YouTube-u neki dan i otada je stalno slušam. Kada mi se sviđa neka pjesma mogu je slušati cijeli dan bez prestanka. Ono što mi se sviđa kod ove pjesme su lagana glazba i riječi. Obratite pažnju na njen makeup u spotu, meni se jako sviđa!

And the last song is the Seasons by Olly Murs. I can't remember when I heard it the first time, but I immediately liked the rhythm. It's a great song.

I zadnja pjesma je Seasons od Ollyja Mursa. Ne znam kad sam ju prvi put čula, ali odmah mi se svidio ritam. Super je pjesma.

What have you been listening to this week? Have a nice day! :)

Što ste vi slušali ovaj tjedan? Uživajte u ostatku dana! :)
