I posted this OOTD video on my youtube channel two days ago, to announce summer's ending...
I hope you liked the way this OOTD video was filmed!
We filmed at the coastal walk of Ika in Croatia, with the big waves crushing on the shore and against the cliffs!
The atmosphere was pretty magical actually, and I really enjoyed the process of filming this OOTD video & the outfit I had picked out for the occasion!
If you haven't seen it yet, you can watch it now:
BAG: Nico fashion stores, Italy
DENIM VEST: Zara
BOOTS: Primadonna, Italy
Pozdrav dragi citatelji/ice!
Ovaj OOTD video objavila sam prije dva dana, kako bih na neki nacin obiljezila i sluzbeni kraj ljeta (to je za mene uvijek nekako sjetno...)
Nadam se da vam se svidio nacin na koji smo snimili ovaj video, a lokacija je zaista prekrasna i na nju sam vec dobila puno pohvala od mojih "followersa" iz stranih zemalja svijeta!
Mozete li pogoditi o kojem se mjestu radi?
Snimali smo na lungo mare u Iki, blizu Hotelijerskog fakulteta, a atmofera je bila posebna: Valovito more odbijalo se uz strmovitu obalu...
Ovaj lungo mare od Voloskog do Lovrana meni je posebno drag i prirastao srcu jer puno sam tamo vremena provela, i kao dijete u setnji sa roditeljima i kao srednjoskolka sa svojim skolskim prijateljicama...puno lijepih trenutaka i uspomena ♥
Nadam se da su vam se svidjele ove slicice kojima sam na simbolican nacin obiljezila kraj ljeta!
Velika pusa, citamo se opet uskoro!

Iako nam je ljeto i kalendarski zavrsilo, nadam se da vam nece smetati ako u narednih par postova objavim jos pokoji ljetni vlog, ili OOTD!
Naime, prosli mjesec dok sam boravila u Hrvatskoj, snimala sam dosta, a buduci da nisam imala dobru internet vezu, morala sam pricekati povratak u Italiju, kako bih pocela objavljivati sav skupljeni materijal!
Ljeto nas je svih ove godine bas razocaralo tako da i dalje ceznem za "dugim, toplim ljetom"...jedina utjeha mi je nada da ce ova jesen biti lijepa, ugodna i topla!
Danas vam donosim jedan mali vlog i OOTD video, sa plaze Kacjak u Dramlju!
Buduci da smo ovo ljeto godisnji odmor proveli u mojem domu u Hrvatskoj, bez neke posebne destinacije u kojoj bi ljetovali, odlucili smo se svaki dan (koliko su nam to vremenske prilike i druge obaveze dopustale), posjetiti neku drugu lokaciju unutar naseg Kvarnera...
Na preporuku prijatelja odvezli smo se jedan dan do plaze Kacjak, gdje moram priznati, nisam jos nikada bila (iako se nalazi relativno blizu Rijeke!).
Tamo smo proveli ugodan dan, a tu je nastao i ovaj vlog i fotkice!
Za dan proveden na plazi, odlucila sam se na casual varijantu i iskomibinirala sam moj Hollister top sa jeans shorts hlacicama iz Pull & Bear ducana.
Balerinke (H&M) sam nosila do plaze , a nakon toga zamijenila sam ih Havaianasicama.
Ogrlica je iz Zare, naocale Ray Ban, a prsten- skoljka je sa trznice u Margheri (IT) i njega bas volim nositi uz ljetne outfite, a i za plazu!
Bikini je mix & match, sastavljen od gornjeg dijela koji je iz H&M-a, i donjeg dijela iz Tezenisa.
I to je to! Vrlo jednostavan outfit za ljetne dane, inspiriran "California girls" stilom :)
This post is going to be a bit different from my past (ootd) posts, because I have received lots of questions regarding my hair & hair extensions.
So in this post I wanted to answer to all of your questions and give you some of my recommendations for the best hair extensions!
Now, to answer the first question, yes, I sometimes wear hair extensions in my videos / photos (see the pic above).
No, I don't wear hair extensions on a daily basis, because my hair is naturally quite long!
(in fact, if you compare the first pic where I have my hair extensions put in, and the second pic, where I don't have any hair extensions, you'll notice that the difference is quite small actually!)
no hair extensions
Why do I sometimes wear hair extensions?
First of all, because I like to add an extra volume to my hair (the hair extensions that I have are pretty much the same length as my natural hair, maybe just a tad bit longer, so they don't add that much to the length...)
I love super thick, voluminous hair, especially when I want to play with different hair styles, or when I want to wear a super thick braid, or a fishtail!
super thick side braid thanks to my hair extensions!
My first set of hair extensions came from a wholesale virgin hair supplier who wanted to promote their business by sending me their products to showcase in my videos and review in my blog posts!
I had never wore hair extensions before, so I thought I'd give it a try and see what's it all about!
Luckily, the hair that I got was actually a great quality, 100% human hair, it felt so soft & silky to the touch, and because those were clip-in hair extensions, it was really easy to clip them in & take them out!
How to choose the right colour?
If you're buying your hair extensions on-line, you'll probably get better deal than if you were to purchase them in your local beauty/ hair supplies store, but picking out the right shade that will perfectly match your hair colour might be a little bit tricky!
The web stores will have a colour chart, so make sure to study it carefully, and, if you have any doubts/ questions, don't hesitate to contact the customer's service, after all, they're here to help you out!
As my hair is highlighted, and I actually have more than just only one shade of blonde/brown, it was easier for me to pick out the colour of the hair extensions that would perfectly blend with my hair colour (I always went for the highlighted hair extensions, with more than only one colour, so I was sure it would blend in with my hair!)
Where to buy hair extensions?
There are so many different places that you can get your hair extensions from!
I would suggest getting them on-line, because you might save up significantly, and it's a good idea to always check if the company has current promotions/discount coupon codes.
It's hard for me to promote only one web store, because I did get different sets of hair extensions from different places, and I was eaqually satisfied with the quality of the hair!
I can name one company that is a wholesale hair weave supplier with a long tradition of selling good quality hair extensions at affordable prices (check the link for more info!)
You should also make sure to check the on-line reviews before making your decision!
The great thing about the on-line reviews is that you can actually come across genuine reviews from the actual paying customers, and those are the ones that matter the most!
However, even if I did receive my sets of hair extensions for free, I always made sure to give my honest review!
My policy is not to review the product if it's bad! I stand by my words and can't bring myself to recommend things that I wouldn't normally want to purchase myself!
I can't vouch the same thing for the other bloggers/vloggers, though!
How to take care of your hair extensions?
Your hair extensions will normally arrive with the set of care instructions, but here are some tips that I stick to:
When washing your hair extensions, you must gradually wet the hair down and brush it gently before you completely wash the hair.
If the hair is very dry and a lot of water is added at once, it will swell up like a sponge and tangle!
Make sure to brush the hair often and apply some leave-in conditioners to make the hair soft and moist.
Store your hair extensions properly, in a right sized box, that will prevent them to get all tangeld up and will preserve them over time!
Hair extensions are fun, I say go for it even if you already have pretty long hair, because they'll make it even more gorgeous!
They're ideal for the special occasions: You'll feel like a star! ;)
Hair extensions are fun! Left photo: I'm wearing my hair extensions, my hair is super long with an amazing volume. Right photo: My natural hair; it's still pretty & long, but I had to curl it to make it a bit more "interesting"!
I think with this I pretty much covered all your questions!
If you have any other questions regarding my hair care routine, or hair extensions, please leave me your comments and I'll make sure to answer to you in one of my future blog posts or beauty related videos.
Today I'm bringing you one very exciting announcement!
As I mentioned before in one of my previous posts, with the arrival of the Fall season, lots of new fashion projects are awaiting me, and one of those important projects is my collaboration with the young italian fashion brand Son Mia Design.
They're specialized in producing cool & trendy graphic tees, for men and women.
The creative mind behind this brand is Francesco, young graphic designer from the South of Italy, who is putting a lot of hard work, passion and creativity into creating his brand of T-shirts.
I spoke to Francesco several times on the phone, as we were talking about this collaboration, and I liked how passionate he is about his work, and how determined he is to make his dream come true!
All the T-shirts are 100% cotton and Made in Italy, all the models are carefully picked to satisfy the highest quality standards.
I accepted to become a part of this project because I want to give my support to a young brand, and because I feel developing the local production is very important.
Nowdays, pretty much everything is produced in China, and this is definitely one of the reasons our economy is in crisis!
Because of the high costs, it is difficult to maintain the local production, but that's why I want to do all that I can to promote and support Son Mia Design T-shirts!
Son Mia Design T-shirts are available in selected fashion stores in the South of Italy, but if you saw a certain model that you'd like to own, you can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
and Francesco will sell it to you on- line!
His on-line store will be active soon, but until then you can contact me with any question that you might have!
Currently, Son Mia Design offers 6 models of T-shirts for women, and 2 men's models.
Bellow you'll find the pictures of all the T-shirts that are currently available, and a few styling ideas with the T-shirts I picked out for myself! :)
"Ci Vedi" T-shirt
"I Can Fly" T-shirt
The same print is available for men // Ista je dostupna i u modelu za muskarce.
"Via col Vento" T-shirt
"The Good The Bad The Ugly" T-shirt
(men's model // linija za muskarce)
Currently there are 6 different models in women's line available // Trenutno su dostupna ova 6 modela iz zenske linije
If you'd like to know more about this collaboration, you can check out my announcement video, here:

Soon I'll start doing lookbooks & outfits of the day with the T-shirts that I picked out, (we're doing a photo shoot at the end of this month!) but until then you can be inspired by some of the OOTD pics that I quickly put together over the past couple of days:

Dragi citatelji i citateljice, lijep pozdrav! :)
U danasnjem postu donosim vam najavu jedne uzbudljive modne suradnje koju sam nedavno zapocela sa mladim talijanskim brandom "Son Mia Design".
Kao sto sam vam vec napomenula u par navrata, jesen mi nosi zanimljive projekte vezane uz blog i zbog toga joj se radujem!
Kreativni um iza Son Mia branda, mladi je graficki dizajner Francesco, sa juga Italije.
Sa njim sam se cula vise puta tijekom dogovora detalja suradnje pa sam ga na taj nacin imala i prilike bolje upoznati i shvatiti da iza ovog branda stoji jedna velika kreativnost, volja i zelja za radom i stvaranjem, i na kraju krajeva, puno strasti i predanosti jednoj ideji, jednom snu!
Prije svega, svidjelo mi se sto je u odabiru modela T-shirta posvecena velika paznja detaljima i kvaliteti, sve majice su 100% pamucne, radjene u Italiji.
U danasnje vrijeme to je nazalost rijetkost, jer lokalna proizvodnja, a s time povezano i sama ekonomija, sve losije stoji i sve se vec proizvodi u Kini!
Stoga sam odlucila dati svoju podrsku u promicanju ovog mladog talijanskog branda, koji ulaze u kvalitetu i dizajn i koji podrzava lokalnu proizvodnju!
Trenutno se Son Mia Design T-shirt mogu nabaviti u odabranim modnim ducanima na jugu Italije, ali Francesco uskoro otvara i svoj on-line web ducan! Do tada, ukoliko vam se posebno svidio koji model i zeljeli biste ga naruciti, mozete se obratiti meni na: email@example.com
a Francesco ce vam postom isporuciti vasu narudzbu gdje god se vi nalazili! :)
U kolekciji je dostupno 6 razlicitih modela iz zenske linije, i 2 modela za muskarce.
Na slicicama gore mozete vidjeti sve trenutno dostupne modele i nekoliko mojih outfit- ideja kako ih iskombinirati za razlicite prilike.
Uskoro zapocinjem sa outfit postovima i lookbook videima (snimanje je predvidjeno za kraj mjeseca), a do tada nadam se da su vas ove outfit slicice uspijele inspirirati i zainteresirati za brand! ;)
Video prezentaciju moje suradnje sa Son Mia Design mozete na hrvatskom jeziku pogledati ovdje:
Slobodno me kontaktirajte ukoliko ste zainteresirane za T-shirte, ili imate uz njih vezanih pitanja! ♥
