One lovely afternoon at Ambassador hotel in Opatija

 



Hello lovelies!

Here is just a quick post about the lovely afternoon we spent as a family, in the hotel Ambassador in Opatija.

We were invited to attend the event that was organized by Italian embassy and that was something nice for a change! I wore H&M´s dress and old Mango suede boots, everything was very polished and fancy.

I used to work there for a couple of weeks as a part of my high school education but it was many years ago, and since then, they obviously made some changes and improvements to the entire hotel.

A lot has changed since the late 90-ies!!!





The day was windy and rainy (it was actually the beginning of summer, I think we were still in Spring time when this event took place), but the view of our Kvarner bay and Cres and Krk islands are always breathtaking!

My little son also enjoyed being there and he behaved really well! When he was tired, we returned home, unfortunately just before the dinner, so we didn't have a chance to enjoy the good food, but we had some delicious sweets instead :-)

I'll talk to you soon with more everyday life posts and pics!

I hope you're enjoying this type of content! Let me know what are you up to these days, how are you spending your summer?

Love from Croatia!

Tisucu i jedna noc

 


Na danasnji dan prije godinu dana, 15.7.2021., zauvijek je zaspala moja draga bakica...

Ovaj post zelim posvetiti njoj i ovoj boli koju osjecam, koja mi prozima cijelo tijelo i dusu...

Iako je moja baka vec bila jako stara i u zadnje vrijeme tesko bolesna i bez volje za zivotom, iako sam znala da je spremna predati se i samo sam cekala vijest o njezinom odlasku, kada sam tog cetvrtka ujutro, prije godinu dana, primila taj poziv i saucesce od osoblja koje se brinulo o njoj, bilo je to kao da se nesto u meni slomilo, kao da je svijet stao i kao da je bio kraj jednog dijela mog zivota, jedinog do sada meni poznatog, a njezinim odlaskom kao da ulazim u neko sasvim drugo poglavlje svoga zivota...









Imala sam tu srecu u životu, da sam imala dvije mame i dva tate. 

Tvoje sam ime zapisala u temelje svoje kuće, kada sam tek učila pisati i taj natpis još stoji i podsjetnik je na cijeli moj život sa tobom. Kada si otišla, osjetila sam da je kraj jedne ere, da je umrlo dijete u meni. Dugo mi je trebalo da pronađem opet to dijete i još uvijek ponekad osjecam tu prazninu u sebi…Kao sto si sama često znala reci, samo sto me nisi nosila i rodila…ali kao da jesi, voljena bakice.

Tog jutra, nakon vijesti o njezinom odlasku, jos prije nego sto sam nazvala mamu, krenula sam vjezbati...Zeljela sam odraditi sve vjezbice koje inace svakodnevno radim, jer to je bio jedini nacin na koji sam mogla zaokupirati svoje tijelo i mozak.

Vjezbala sam I plakala. Plakala sam za proslim vremenima kada sam bila djevojcica i kada je moja baka brinula za mene i strepila nadamnom, plakala sam zbog toga sto pred kraj njezinog zivota ja nisam bila dovoljno fizicki, ni psihicki jaka, da se brinem o njoj i da joj drzim ruku u tom trenutku njezinog prelaska na drugi svijet. I danas placem i tesko mi je. I mislim da neke stvari nikada nece biti lakse, ili manje bolne. Jedino sto mogu uciniti je prihvatiti tu bol, osvijestiti je, osjetiti je i otpustiti je, u vidu neceg konstruktivnog, ili kreativnog, u vidu stvaranja neceg pozitivnog, u trenutku kada najvise boli i vuce na negativno. 

I zauvijek u mom srcu nositi sjecanje na najsnazniju, fizicki i psihicki govoreci, zenu koju sam u zivotu upoznala...moju baku Zoricu.

One relaxing Sunday afternoon at the town Bakar

 


Hello lovelies!

As promised, I'll try to update my blog more often :-)

This time I want to share just a couple of photos taken one Sunday afternoon at the town Bakar, in Croatia.

It's going to be like a little photo diary, and I'll try to post this type of content more often.

So, the story behind these photos is: It was a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon spent in a company of my family. We went with my Mum to a nearby little town called Bakar, to spend some quality time together, take a walk by the sea and eat some good food at a local dining place that we've been visiting for years now, as the seafood is really delicious there :-)












As the day of my birthday I spent visiting the island of Brijuni with my hubby and my son and some friends, the next weekend was the time to celebrate with my Mum, and just enjoy each other's company and little joys of life.

For the occasion I wore:

Shirt: Abercrombie & Fitch

Jeans: Zara

Belt: Vintage

Sunglasses: Zara

Bag: Mango

Sandals: dr. Martens

(fun fact: EVERYTHING is second hand- except for the sunnies, but they're quite old too!)

I vlogged about this day here:




And here is a review video of my new dr. Marten's sandals (in case you were wondering about the fit and the sizing and all that jazz...):





I filmed vlog in Croatian language and the review in english and I'm trying to also film in italian (mostly reviews of Italian beauty and make up products), so everyone can enjoy watching my videos :-)


I'll talk to you soon!
