Christmas/New Year | Home decoration + Happy New 2015

Christmas/New Year  Home decoration for abundance

December 31, the last day of 2014... Without too much to say, I wish you a HAPPY NEW 2015! May it bring everything you wish for at midnight. May it bring you abundance, health, love, success and happiness. Enjoy tonight wherever you are and have fun!
p.s. There is one thing which I'm looking forward every December, and it's decoration of the Christmas tree and the house. And concerning that I am very selfish, because I want to do everything myself.:)

31 decembar, poslednji dan 2014-te... Bez previse reci, zelim vam SRECNU NOVU 2015-tu! Neka vam donese sve sto pozelite u ponoc. Neka vas blagodari zdravljem, ljubavlju, uspehom i srecom. Uzivajte veceras gde god da ste i lepo se provedite!
p.s. Postoji jedna stvar kojoj se radujem kao dete svakog decembra, a to je kicenje jelke i praznicna dekoracija kuce. I vrlo sam sebicna sto se toga tice, jer hocu sve sama da uradim.:)

Ahava: Mineral Botanic rich body butter (hibiscus & fig) | Best in 2014!

Ahava Mineral Botanic rich body butter with hibiscus & fig, best body butters

This is my favorite body butter in 2014 (and I tried a million of them)!!! I don't know if it's because of the phenomenal smell or the instant-luxurious feeling when you apply this cream.
Ahava's "Mineral Botanic rich body butter" with the scent of hibiscus and fig, is a super nourishing and moisturizing formula that instantly softens the skin. It contains "AHAVA's proprietary osmoter" which is actually a concentrate of Dead Sea minerals, shea-butter and the peach butter. This cream has a rich but light texture, and it's great for all skin types including sensitive skin. Definitely a product that I warmly recommend you to try in 2015!

Ovo je moj omiljeni puter za telo u 2014-oj (pored mnostva isprobanih)!!! Ne znam da li je zbog fenomenalnog mirisa ili zbog instant-luksuznog osecaja kada nanesete ovu kremu.
Ahava "Mineral Botanic rich body butter" sa mirisom hibiskusa i smokve, je super hranljiva i hidrantna formula koja momentalno omeksava kozu. Sadrzi "AHAVA proprietary osmoter" koji je zapravo koncentrat minerala iz Mrtvog mora, shea-puter kao i puter od breskve. Ova krema je bogate ali lagane teksture, i odlicna je za sve tipove koze ukljucujuci i osetljivu kozu. Definitivno proizvod koji svima toplo preporucujem u 2015-oj!

Oriflame: Time Reversing SkinGenist Instant Smooth Capsules

Oriflame Time Reversing SkinGenist Instant Smooth Capsules with soy

I am not a supporter of excessive/frequent/daily use of anti-aging products, nor skin care products for mature skin, before your 30s! From time to time- yes, because I'm doing it myself, when I think that my skin needs some extra care...
As an example let's take these Oriflame "Time Reversing SkinGenist Instant Smooth Capsules", which come in a beautiful and elegant glass jar. There are a total of 28, and must be applied morning and night for 14 consecutive days. But I used them only at night, after cleansing and before applying the cream...

Nisam pristalica preteranog/cestog/svakodnevnog koriscenja anti-age preparata, niti proizvoda za negu zrele koze, pre 30-te godine zivota! S vremena na vreme- da, jer i sama to cinim, kada zelim da svojoj kozi priustim bogatiju negu...
Evo recimo primer su ove Oriflame "Time Reversing SkinGenist kapsule za instant meku kozu lica", koje dolaze u lepoj i elegantnoj staklenoj teglici. Ima ih ukupno 28, i potrebno ih je nanositi ujutru i uvece tokom 14 uzastopnih dana. Ali ja sam ih koristila samo uvece, nakon ciscenja lica i pre nanosenja kreme...

Oriflame Time Reversing SkinGenist kapsule za instant meku kozu lica

The main ingredient of these capsules is soy! Soy is known to fight skin aging, because it contains isoflavones that in our bodies change into phytoestrogens, which are very similar to the female hormone estrogen. Personally, I like that the content of the capsule, or better to say serum, has the oily texture and leaves a pleasant silky filter. After use the skin is soft and smooth and ready for further care whether it's a day or night cream...

Benefit perfume: So hooked on Carmella

Benefit So hooked on Carmella Eau de Toilette

Benefit "So hooked on Carmella" is one of: 1. my favorite perfumes, 2. the perfume I used the most in 2013, and 3. one of my most used perfumes in 2014!
What I like about Benefit perfumes is that they are extremely long-lasting, and they all come in absolutely phenomenal and ultra original packaging, just like all Benefit products!

Benefit "So hooked on Carmella" je jedan od: 1. mojih omiljenih parfema, 2. parfem koji sam najvise koristila u 2013-oj, i 3. jedan od mojih najkoriscenijih parfema u 2014-oj!
Ono sto volim kod Benefit parfema je to sto su izuzetno dugotrajni, i svi dolaze u apsolutno fenomenalnim i ultra originalnim pakovanjima, kao i uostalom svi Benefit proizvodi!

Benefit So hooked on Carmella toaletna vodica parfem

Thanks to its unique and seductively-sweet aroma, Carmella might be the perfect choice for cold days, especially for the winter! It belongs to oriental-floral fragrances. Base notes are lemon, grapefruit and rhubarb; which later blend with the middle notes: cyclamen, peony and tiara flower. And at the end all that is left are warm and stimulating notes of vanilla, amber and sandalwood... Yum yum!!!

Victoria's Secret: Angel Gold fragrance mist

Victoria's Secret Angel Gold fragrance body mist

I'm terribly sorry I missed Victoria's Secret show in London the other day!:D But because of that I added to my (modest yet valuable) VS "home collection" another fragrance mist: "Angel Gold", and by the way got a pair of small angel wings!:)
"Angel Gold" is a fruity-floral mixture with major notes of bergamot, gardenia and musk. Upper fruity notes that you first smell in the air are: pear, kumquat, sorbet of red berries, pomelo blossom, orange cream. Then slowly you smell middle floral notes: jasmine flowers, gardenia, tulips, peony... And finally you're seduced by the sensual base notes: musk, vanilla, sandalwood and amber...

Zaista mi je zao sto sam propustila Victoria's Secret show u Londonu pre neki dan!:D I zbog toga sam svojoj (skromnoj ali vrednoj) VS "kucnoj kolekciji" dodala jos jednu vodicu za telo: "Angel Gold", i usput dobila par malih andjeoskih krila!:)
"Angel Gold" je vockasto-cvetna mesavina sa glavnim notama bergamota, gardenije i mosusa. Gornje vockaste note koje se prvo osete u vazduhu jesu: kruska, kumquat, sorbet od crvene bobice, cvet grejpa, krem od narandze. Zatim se polako oseca miris srednjih cvetnih nota: cveta jasmina, gardenije, lale, bozura... I na kraju cula bude senzualne donje note: mosusa, vanile, sandalovine i ambera...

Essence My Skin: 4in1 cleansing cream + Intensively caring cream

Essence My Skin 4in1 cleansing cream and Intensively caring cream

I can say that I'm pleasantly surprised by Essence My Skin skin care line. Although primarily intended for younger skin type, these products can be used 'till late '20s...
I was thinking to buy a few more Essence products, but I told myself to wait and try these ones and then I'll easily purchase the new ones if I like them. Anyway here are some informations about: "4in1 Cleansing Cream" and "Intensive caring cream"!

Mogu reci da sam prijatno iznenadjena Essence My Skin linijom za negu koze. Iako je prvenstveno namenjena mladjem tipu koze, ove proizvode mozete koristiti i do kasnih 20-tih...
Razmisljala sam se da kupim jos par Essence proizvoda, ali rekoh sebi da sacekam i isprobam ove pa cu lako dokupiti nove ako mi se dopadnu. Elem evo malo vise informacija o: "4u1 kremi za ciscenje lica" i "Intenzivno hranljivoj kremi"!

Adidas Climachill woman's running shoes (fuchsia color)

Adidas Climachill woman's running shoes in fuchsia color

My favorite running shoes: Adidas "Climachill" in fuchsia color! I got them as a gift this summer, just before I sprained my ankle, so unfortunately I wasn't able to use them as much as I wanted. Luckily we had quite warm fall, so I prolonged their use...
Sneakers are light like a feather and super comfy!! The entire Climachill line is based on a new technology, with 3D cooling aluminum spheres, that helps during sports activities in warm conditions. Of course these Climachill sneakers are not for the rain and cold weather conditions, but they are great for nice weather, gym...

Moje omiljene patike za trcanje: Adidas "Climachill" u fuksija boji! Dobila sam ih na poklon ovog leta, bas pre nego sto sam uganula zglob, tako da na svu zalost nisam mogla da ih koristim koliko sam zelela. Srecom imali smo prilicno toplu jesen, tako da sam nadoknadila njihovu upotrebu...
Patike su lagane kao perce i super udobne! Citava Climachill serija je zasnovana na novoj tehnologiji gde su korisceni 3D aluminijumski delovi za hladjenje koji pomazu tokom sportskih aktivnosti u toplim uslovima. Naravno ove Climachill patike nisu za kisu i hladne vremenske uslove, ali su sjajne za lepo vreme, teretanu...

How-to repair broken makeup | DIY Bronzer/Powder (step by step)

How to repair broken makeup, DIY bronzer and powder

I hate when I accidentally drop the compact powder/blush/bronzer/eye-shadow, and then it breaks into hundreds of pieces and turns into dust! Especially if it's my favorite bronzer or powder! Grrr, really irritating experience! Luckily I found a solution which helps me to return the product into a nearly-original condition! Plus the same solution is good if you want to turn some makeup powder product (like loose powder or powder eye shadow) into a solid matter! See below how you can do it!

Mrzim kada slucajno ispustim kompaktni puder/rumenilo/bronzer/senku za oci pa se razbiju u sto parcica ili se pretvore u prah! Narocito ako se recimo radi o omiljenom bronzeru ili puderu! Grrr, zaista iritirajuce iskustvo! Srecom nasla sam resenje koji mi pomaze da proizvod vratim u skoro-pa-pocetno stanje! Plus isto resenje je dobro i ako zelite da bilo koji makeup proizvod u prahu (npr. puder u prahu ili senku za oci u prahu) pretvorite u solidnu/cvrstu materiju!  Pogledajte u nastavku kako!

Looking at the summer images during the gloomy and cold autumn (and winter) days has always been my recipe for a "quick warming"! I know that this is the case with you as well, because you've said countless times how much you love "summer content" on my blog during the "non-summer days"!
So here are some pictures that show the natural beauty of Santorini, which I have not shared with you. If you missed the first part of the pictures, see this post!!

Gledanje letnjih slika tokom tmurnih i hladnih jesenjih (kao i zimskih) dana je oduvek bio moj recept za "brzo zagrevanje"! Znam da je to situacija i sa vama, jer ste mi bezbroj puta rekli koliko volite "letnji sadrzaj" na mom blogu tokom "ne-letnjih dana"!
Stoga evo nekoliko slika koje prikazuju prirodnu lepotu Santorinija, a koje nisam podelila sa vama. Ako ste preskocili prvi deo slika pogledajte ovaj post!!

PLAKES beach | Ios island

Plakes beach, Ios

Plakes beach is located after Kalamos beach (read here), so these two beaches we visited in the same day. Plakes beach is small and very beautiful beach of Ios island, with wonderful soft sand and very calm waters, far away some 15 kilometers from the capital Chora. It is not organized, and not so easy to access, but it is definitely worth a visit!

Plakes plaza se nalazi nakon Kalamos plaze (procitajte ovde), tako da smo ove dve plaze obisli u istom danu. Plakes plaza je omanja i vrlo lepa plaza ostrva Ios, sa divnim mekanim peskom i izuzetno mirnom vodom, udaljena nekih 15-tak kilometara od glavnog grada Hore. Nije organizovana, i nije laka za pristup, ali je definitivno vredna posete!

Manganari beach (Ios, part 2)

Manganari beach Ios island

Manganari beach we visited twice. First before going to Santorini (read it here), and a second time after that. The second time was even less people, just the sound of small waves... Ok from time to time also the sound of battle games that my babe was playing: spat-boom-bang-boom-has-hus-bang-bang-bang-bang-bang. But that's a holiday as well, or I became too tolerant...:D
Read more below...

Manganari plazu smo posetili dva puta. Prvi put pre odlaska na Santorini (procitajte ovde), i drugi put nakon toga. Drugi put je cak bilo manje ljudi, mir i tisina svuda oko nas, samo zvuk malih talasa.. Ok i s vremena na vreme zvuk borbene igrice koju je moj dragi igrao: spat-bum-tras-bum-has-hus-beng-beng-beng-beng-beng. Ali i to je odmor, ili sam ja postala previse tolerantna...:D

Liostasi hotel & spa :: Exterior design + VIDEO

Liostasi hotel & spa exterior look and design

We're approaching the end of the story about "Liostasi hotel & spa", which is one of the most luxurious hotels in Ios, perhaps the most luxurious one! It seems to me that I showed you absolutely every "corner", there are only pictures of the suite where we spent our last night.
Traveling is my passion, and when I travel I especially like to photograph the landscape and the hotels where I stay. I do not need any specific inspiration as all these places have the exceptional beauty. The visual beauty that I love to capture with my camera and then share here on the blog with all of you who (like me) have the weakness for the aesthetic appearance.
That's why today I'm showing you the pictures of the exterior look of "Liostasi" hotel, which is a symbol of modern design. And as a gift you get a short video!

Blizimo se kraju price o "Liostasi hotel & spa", koji je jedan od najluksuznijih hotela na Iosu, mozda i najluksuzniji! Cini mi se da sam vam pokazala apsolutno sve "coskove", ostale su jos samo slike apartmana u kojem smo odseli poslednje vece.
Putovanja su moja strast, i dok putujem posebno volim da slikam predele kroz koje prolazim i hotele u kojima odsedam. Nije mi potrebna neka specificna inspiracija jer sva ova mesta odizu izuzetnom lepotom. Vizuelnom lepotom koju volim da uslikam i potom podelim na blogu, sa svima vama kojima je (kao i meni) estetski izgled slabost.
Zato vam danas pokazujem slike spoljasnjeg izgleda "Liostasi" hotela, koji je simbol modernog dizajna. A kao poklon dobijate i kratak video!

Pool bar :: Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios)

Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios, Greece), pool bar

You saw in one of the previous posts how the hotel pool at "Liostasi" looks like. Back then I promised to show you also the pictures of the hotel bar located by the pool...
The bar is open from early morning until late evening hours, both for hotel guests and for all other visitors. You can use chic sunbeds, sit on high bar chairs, chill out on a big puffy pillows or wait for the sunset on the wooden chairs that are facing the sea. And all this while sipping refreshingly cold frape and homemade lemonade, or enjoying a glass of quality wine and one of the many creative cocktails such as "Pina con ron" or "Bitter water sour"...

Videli ste u jednom od prethodnih postova kako izgleda bazen "Liostasi" hotela. Tada sam obecala da cu vam pokazati i slike hotelskog bara koji se nalazi pored bazena...
Bar je otvoren od ranog prepodneva pa sve do kasnih vecernjih casova, kako za goste hotela tako i za sve ostale posetioce. Mozete lezati na lezaljkama, sedeti na visokim stolicama bara, izlezavati se na velikim pufnastim jastucima ili cekati zalazak sunca na drvenim stolicama koje su okrenute ka moru. I sve to dok pijuckate osvezavajuce hladan frape i domacu limunadu, ili uzivate u casi kvalitetnog vina i nekom od brojnih kreativnih koktela kao sto je "Pina con ron" ili "Bitter water sour"...

Oia at night

Oia at night Santorini island

Oia is a place in Santorini that I really love! Although the pedestrian zone has a peaceful character (despite the large number of people walking every night) than the one in the capital city, it still carries a specific note of sophistication and elegance. A lot of jewelry stores (where I always stop to admire), souvenir shops, a few fashion boutiques, a couple of galleries, restaurants and taverns that were surprisingly crowded this year in the month of September...
But for me the people, in this case tourists, give a special touch to any place. By now I'm used to see the people who walk the streets of Santorini smiling, in a good and friendly mood, with fine manners. But this year the situation was completely different. Instead of friendly smiles a couple of tourists even pushed me because nobody is looking where is going, nor they care. The profile of people who are visiting the island has changed, and I do not know how good it is. But for me Oia will always be beautiful, as such I want to remember it, especially at night, while resting under the moonlight...

Oia je mesto na Santoriniju koje ja stvarno volim! Iako je setalisna zona mirnijeg karaktera (i pored velikog broja ljudi koji svako vece setaju) nego ona u glavnom gradu, ipak nosi jednu specificnu notu sofisticiranosti i elegancije. Puno zlatara i radnji sa nakitom pred kojima ja uvek zastanem, prodavnice suvenira, nekoliko butika za ljubitelje mode, par galerija, restorani i taverne koje su ove godine u septembru mesecu zacudjujuce krcate bile...
Ali po meni ljudi, u ovom slucaju turisti, daju poseban pecat svakom turistickom mestu. Do sada sam navikla da su ljudi koji setaju ulicama Santorinija nasmejani, u dobrom raspolozenju, ljubazni i sa finim manirima. Medjutim ove godine je situacija bila potpuno drugacija. Umesto ljubaznog osmeha par turista me je cak i gurnulo jer niko ne gleda kuda ide, niti ih je briga. Profil ljudi koji posecuju ostrvo se promenio, i ne znam koliko je to dobro. Ali meni ce Oia uvek biti lepa jer takvu zelim da je pamtim, narocito nocu, dok odmara obasjana mesecinom...

OOTD: Blue Baby Blue (How to wear Plaid trench coat)

How to wear plaid trench coat

Plaid print is definitely one of the biggest trends this season! In fact, it seems to me that in the last couple of seasons plaid/tartan pattern has a strong role in the fashion game, and it's simply a necessary element that we see on catwalks, in fashion editorials, on the streets...
I used these few sunny and warm days, and combined my plaid raincoat with the dress and boots in the same tone, and played a little bit with squared details that perfectly match the tartan print!

Karirani print je definitivno jedan od najvecih trendova ove sezone! Zapravo cini mi se da u poslednjih par sezona karo sara ima jaku ulogu u modnoj igri, i prosto je neophodan element koji vidjamo i na modnim pistama, i u modnim editorijalima i na ulicama...
Iskoristila sam ovih nekoliko suncanih i toplijih dana, i ukombinovala svoj karirani kisni mantil sa haljinom i cizmama u istom tonu, i malo se poigrala sa kockastim detaljima koji savrseno prate karo saru!

Hair update: New haircolor + haircut

Dark brown hair color for blue eyes

I recently cut my hair a bit, and refreshed the color that is slightly darker now and more suitable for colder period that is coming (or has already come)... My hairstylist Lena had "extremely good day" and she allowed me to pick a darker brown shade (which btw never but never happens), so I better enjoy this color while I still can!

Nedavno sam malo skratila kosu, i osvezila boju koja je sada za nijansu tamnija i pogodnija za hladniji period koji nam dolazi (ili je vec dosao)... Moja frizerka Lena je imala "izuzetno dobar dan" pa me je pustila da izaberem tamniju braon nijansu (sto se inace nikad ali nikad ne desava), tako da je bolje da uzivam u ovoj boji dok jos mogu!

Margarita bar (at night) :: Ios Palace hotel & spa

Margarita bar, Ios palace hotel & spa

Mylopotas beach (see here) is approximately 5 minutes away from the hotel where we were staying, so one night instead of the usual walk around Ios town, we spontaneously decided to have a drink at some bar/cafe on the beach and to see how the whole bay looks like at night. Given that everything was half empty, just when we thought to return to our hotel, we saw some dimmed pink lights at the beginning of the bay. The lights were coming from "Ios Palace hotel & spa", a luxury boutique hotel with 4 stars, actually from "Margarita bar" which is a part of this hotel.

Milopotas plaza (pogledajte ovde) se nalazi na nekih 5min od hotela u kojem smo mi odseli, te smo jedno vece umesto uobicajene setnje gradom spontano odlucili da popijemo pice u nekom baru/kaficu na ovoj plazi i da vidimo kako citav zaliv izgleda uvece. S obzirom da je sve bilo poluprazno, taman kad smo pomislili da se vratimo u nas hotel videli smo neka prigusena ruzicasta svetla na samom pocetku zaliva. Svetla su dopirala iz "Ios Palace hotel & spa", luksuznog boutique hotela sa 4 zvezdice, zapravo iz "Margarita bara" koji je deo ovog hotela.

Grandma's restaurant :: Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios)

Grandma's restaurant, Liostasi hotel & spa

"Grandma's" restaurant, which is a part of "Liostasi hotel & spa", is one of the places on the island of Ios, that is generously recommended to the tourists, especially when it comes to dinner. Actually, exclusively when it comes to dinner as the restaurant works after 7pm...
"Grandma's" is located within the hotel where we stayed at. In the morning the breakfast is served here (more about that in this post). And up to 7pm there is another menu based on the lighter meals which can be served to hotel guests, so many people decide to have a lunch here, especially when they spend the day by the pool. For example two times in the late afternoon I ordered my favorite food- grilled eggplants.
Anyway, I wanted to show you the look of the restaurant before opening at 7pm, while it's still lit by the sun that slowly sinks behind the horizon...

"Grandma's" restoran, koji je deo "Liostasi hotel & spa", je jedno od mesta na ostrvu Ios koje se velikodusno preporucuje turistima, narocito kada je vecera u pitanju. Zapravo i jedino kada je vecera u pitanju jer restoran radi tek nakon 19h...
"Grandma's" se nalazi u okviru hotela u kojem smo odsedali. Ujutru se recimo ovde sluzi dorucak (vise o tome u ovom postu). I sve do 19h casova postoji drugi jelovnik koji se bazira na laksim jelima koja se mogu servirati gostima hotela, te se mnogi odlucuju da rucaju ovde narocito kada provode dan pored bazena. Ja sam recimo dva puta u kasnim podnevnim casovima rucala moje omiljeno jelo- grilovane patlidzane. 
Elem htela sam da vam pokazem kako restoran izgleda pred samo otvaranje u 19h, dok je jos obasjan suncem koje polako tone iza horizonta...

Swimming pool :: Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios)

Liostasi hotel & spa main swimming pool

It seems to me that nowadays pools in all the best hotels in the world are the exquisite attraction! Quite often the look of the pool is also one of the major factors when deciding which hotel you will book (I know that's the case with me), especially during the summer holidays...
"Liostasi hotel & spa" has a pool that is suitable both for adults and children. Around the pool there are wooden chairs with chic black cushions and black umbrellas. There are additional wooden chairs that are usually a favorite place for watching the sunset. And for extra refreshment there is always a pool bar but these photos I'll show you another time... And today you can see what the hotel pool looks like!

Cini mi se da su u danasnje vreme bazeni svih boljih hotela u svetu izuzetna atrakcija! Vrlo cesto izgled bazena je takodje jedan od glavnih faktora kada odlucujete za koji cete se hotel opredeliti (znam da je to sa mnom slucaj), narocito tokom letnjeg odmora...
"Liostasi hotel & spa" ima bazen koji je prilagodjen i odraslima i deci. Oko bazena su rasporedjene drvene lezaljke sa sik crnim jastucima i crnim suncobranima. Postoje i dodatne drvene stolice koje su obicno omiljeno mesto za posmatranje zalaska sunca. A za dodatno osvezenje uvek je tu pool bar cije cu vam slike pokazati drugi put... A danas pogledajte kako izgleda hotelski bazen!

Liostasi suite (room 56) :: Liostasi hotel & spa (Ios)

Liostasi suite sharing pool room 56

After a three-day stay in Santorini, we went back to Ios and of course once again chose "Liostasi hotel & spa". In this apartment, which is the room number 56, we spent only one night, but even that was enough to take some photos for the blog...;)
"Liostasi suite" (just like "Deluxe suite"), is a two level suite with a sea view. Together with the other five suites on two levels it shares the private pool (more on that here)...
See below the detailed description and look of the whole "Liostasi" suite...

Nakon trodnevnog boravka na Santoriniju, vratili smo se na Ios i naravno ponovo se odlucili za "Liostasi hotel & spa". U ovom apartmanu tj sobi broj 56 smo proveli samo jedno vece, ali i to je bilo dovoljno da prikupim neke slicice za blog...;)
"Liostasi suite" (kao i "Deluxe suite") je apartman na dva nivoa sa pogledom na more. Zajedno za ostalih pet apartmana na 2 nivoa deli privatan bazen (vise o tome ovde)...
Pogledajte u nastavku detaljan opis i izgled citavog "Liostasi" apartmana...

Mylopotas beach (Ios) + Far Out beach club

Mylopotas beach in Ios island

Mylopotas beach is by far the most famous beach on the whole island of Ios! Many people even consider that it's one of the top 10 beaches in Europe. It is about 1km long and 2km away from the capital Chora. It has the shape of a horseshoe, a delightful sand and crystal clear water.
The beach is well organized from its beginning till the end, with numerous sunbeds and umbrellas. This of course means that you'll find a lot of cafes, bars, taverns and restaurants. One of these places is "Far Out" beach club which is always crowded since this bar is only a small part of the whole complex "Far Out" (hotel, hostel, villas, camping...)!

Milopotas plaza je ubedljivo najpoznatija plaza ostrva Ios! Cak je mnogi smatraju i jednom od 10 najboljih plaza Evrope. Duga je oko 1km i udaljena neka 2km od glavnog grada Hore. Ima oblik potkovice, divan pesak i kristalno cistu vodu.
Plaza je odlicno organizovana citavom svojom duzinom, sa bezbroj lezaljki i suncobrana. To naravno znaci da cete ovde naici na brojne kafice, barove, taverne i restorane. Jedno od takvih mesta je i "Far Out" beach club koji je uvek krcat s obzirom da je ovaj bar samo jedan deo citavog kompleksa "Far Out" (hotel, hostel, vile, kamping...)!

Ios island :: Random beauty (part 2)

Chora Ios island Greece
Chora

Archaeological excavations show that Ios was inhabited since the early Cyclades period (3200-2000 BC), which is actually a period that is known worldwide as the early Bronze Age. The best-known site on the island is Skarkos, where they found the remains of buildings that were reaching up to 3m in height, numerous pottery and tools made ​​of metal, stone and bone.
Another interesting fact is that Homer's mother was from Ios, even the tradition claims that Homer himself was buried here. Physical evidence for this claim does not exist, but the locals proudly show one tomb dedicated to Homer, which is located in the north of the island in the ancient city named Plakotos...
* If you missed the first part of the story about Ios, see "Ios island :: Random beauty (part 1)"...

Arheoloska iskopavanja pokazuju da je Ios bio naseljen jos od ranog Kikladskog perioda (3200-2000 p.n.e.), sto je zapravo period koji je u svetu poznat kao rano bronzano doba. Najpoznatije nalaziste na ostrvu je Skarkos, gde su pronadjeni ostaci zgrada koje su dosezale i do 3m u visinu, brojna grncarija i orudje izradjeno od metala, kamena i kosti. 
Jos jedna zanimljivost je i ta da Homerova majka vodi poreklo sa ovog ostrva, cak je i prema nekim tvrdnjama i sam Homer sahranjen ovde. Fizicki dokazi za tu tvrdnju ne postoje, ali lokalci sa ponosom pokazuju grobnicu posvecenu Homeru koja se nalazi na severu ostrva u antickom gradu pod imenom Plakotos...
