outfit: Neutrals & Black

outfit: Neutrals & Black. Derpouli sweater/μπλουζα. Acchilleas accessories bag/tsanta. Neutral is the new black.

In yesterday's post I spoke about neutral colors. It is amazing with how much easiness these shades can bring freshness and simplicity into everyday life, whether it has to do with the wardrobe and accessories, interior design and decoration, etc... Especially when you are (intentionally or accidentally) surrounded by "the darkness": if you like to wear dark colors (black, navy, dark brown), or it's dark and cloudy weather outside (which is typical for this winter period), or your life in some way seems "dark and gloomy"...:) Yes, maybe dark colors have the ability to make us feel "secure/safe" at certain moments (I'm guilty for that as well!), but keep on mind that the joy of life and growth of personality are outside of our "comfort zone"...;)
...

U jucerasnjem postu sam vam pricala o neutralnim bojama. Prosto je neverovatno sa koliko lakoce ove nijanse mogu uneti svezinu i jednostavnost u svakodnevni zivot, bilo da se radi o garderobi i aksesoarima, dizajnu enterijera i dekoraciji, i sl... Narocito kada ste (namerno ili slucajno) okruzeni "mrakom i tamom": ako volite da nosite tamne boje (crna, teget, tamno braon), ili je mracno i oblacno vreme napolju (sto je tipicno za ovaj zimski period), ili vam je zivot u neki ruku "mracan i sumoran"...:) Da, mozda tamne boje mogu da ucine da se u odredjenim trenucima osecamo "sigurno/bezbedno" (i ja sam za to kriva!), ali imajte na umu da su radost zivota i rast licnosti izvan nase "zone komfornosti"...;)

NEUTRALS are the new BLACK!

Neutral is the new black! Neutral colors fashion. Neutralna je nova crna.Neutralne boje u modi.

Black is always in fashion, but let's be honest: it doesn't suit us all equally well, not even me!! Simply it doesn't highlight my best features, but I still stubbornly wear it- hm fashion masochist!:D The same situation is with snowy white, for some people it's just too strong...
On the other side, neutral colors such as beige, cream, light gray, vanilla, taupe (light gray-brown), off-white and similar, are a winning combination! In the broad spectrum of neutral colors, each person can find a shade that suits her/him perfectly. Neutral is a good base for building fresh, crisp, pure, clean and chic outfits. Also it matches excellent with all possible colors, especially with classic black and white. That's why I decided to add more neutral colors to my life!;) 
p.s. Today's post is somewhat a preview of tomorrow's outfit post, cause the sweater and boots are part of the next look!
...

Crna boja je uvek u modi, ali budimo iskreni: ne stoji nam svima podjednako dobro, pa cak ni meni! Prosto ne istice moje najbolje crte, ali je i dalje tvrdoglavo nosim- hm modni mazohista!:D Ista je situacija i sa snezno belom bojom, za neke je i ona prejaka...
S druge strane neutralne boje kao sto su bez, krem, svetlo siva, boja vanile, "taupe" (svetlo sivo-braon), boja bele kafe i sl.- jesu dobitna kombinacija! U sirokom spektru neutralnih boja svaka osoba moze pronaci nijansu koja joj savrseno odgovara. Neutralna je odlicna baza za gradjenje svezeg, "cistog" i chic outfita. Takodje fenomenalno se uklapa sa svim mogucim bojama, narocito sa klasicnom crnom i belom bojom. Zato sam ja odlucila da uvedem vise neutralnih boja u svoj zivot!;)
p.s. Danasnji post je ujedno i najava sutrasnjeg outfit posta, tj cizme i dzemper su deo narednog look-a!

new in: #925 silver jewelry

silver 925 jewelry. ralph lauren fw 2014 ricky bag campaign. srebrni nakit. 2015 jewelry trends.

Of course I like trendy pieces of bijoux, but I also like the noble materials. Whether it's gold or silver- we're speaking about the quality here. And since the quality of this jewelry lasts a pretty long time, it means that every piece of silver or gold jewelry is a long-term investment, guarantee and security. Something that will be with you for years, something that is not so easy to destroy and something that you could leave to the next generations...
What you can see today are the silver pieces (necklaces, bracelets and earrings) that I recently added to my collection of jewelry... A gift from a very dear female person...
...

Naravno da volim trendi komade bizuterije, ali volim i plemenite matarijale. Bilo da je zlato ili srebro u pitanju, radi se o kvalitetu. A kako kvalitet kod ovakvog nakita poprilicno dugo traje, to znaci da je svaki komad srebrnog ili zlatnog nakita jedna dugorocna investicija, garancija i sigurnost. Nesto sto ce biti sa vama godinama, nesto sto nije tako lako unistiti i nesto sto biste mogli ostaviti i narednim generacijama...
Ovo sto danas vidite jesu komadi srebra (ogrlice, narukvice i mindjuse) koje sam nedavno dodala svojoj kolekciji nakita... Poklon od meni drage zenske osobe...

Rimmel Vinyl Max lip gloss (Obsession 401)

Rimmel Vinyl Max lip gloss (Obsession 401). Rimmel sjaj za usne. Rimmel lip gloss. Plumping lip glosses. Sjajevi za volumen usana.

For a long time I had on my mind purple color of a lipstick/lip gloss. But somehow it happens that I always choose other colors (mostly neutrals, pinks and reds), until one day I said to myself "that's enough" and grabbed Rimmel's "Vinyl Max" lip gloss!
The color of this gloss (Obsession 401) should be associated with pure purple, but to me personally it looks more like a berry or eggplant color (which I have no problem with). The shade doesn't look too dark nor too dramatic on the lips, and it's slightly shiny. The smell is really pleasant, and somewhat reminds me of vanilla. 
...

Vec duze vreme mi je na pameti bila ljubicasta boja karmina/sjaja za usne. Ali nekako se uvek potrefi da izaberem druge nijanse (mahom neutralne, pink i crvene), sve dok jednog dana nisam rekla sebi "sad je dosta!" i zgrabila Rimmel-ov "Vinyl Max" sjaj za usne!
Boja ovog sjaja (Obsession 401) bi trebalo da asocira na cistu ljubicastu, ali meni licno vise vuce na nijanse bobicastog voca pa cak i patlidzana (mada mi se i tako dopada). Nijansa ne izgleda previse tamno niti napadno na usnama, i blago je svetlucava. Miris je izuzetno prijatan, i pomalo me podseca na note vanile.

Rimmel Vinyl Max lip gloss (Obsession 401). Rimmel sjaj za usne. Rimmel lip gloss. Plumping lip glosses. Sjajevi za volumen usana.

"Vinyl Max" lip gloss is designed to increase the volume of the lips thanks to Hyaluronic spheres, which also reduce fine lines and make the lips look smoother. Usually plumping lip glosses have that refreshingly "cooling" effect (formula on the lips reminds of the mint/eucalyptus), which is the case here.

Last morning in Heraklion....

Morning in Heraklion, Crete. Sea in Heraklion. Winter in Crete.

During the month of January and after so many years, the island of Crete was lying under the white snow cover... Only four days before we arrived in Crete, this same calm sea which you can see in photos was (perhaps for the first time on the island) making the waves that were, in the "clash" with protected coastline, throwing the water up to the third floor of the hotel (we are talking now about 8-9m)... Luckily we had beautiful weather there, not too cold, not too warm, only the wind was mildly tormenting us (my hair is quite rebellious under the influence of wind and humidity). But given that we were all day in the closed exhibition space, even the wind wasn't such a big problem.
And here are a few photos of the last morning in Heraklion...
...

Tokom januara meseca i nakon mnogo godina, ostrvo Krit je lezalo pod belim sneznim pokrivacem... Samo cetiri dana pre nego sto smo stigli na Krit, isto ovo mirno more koje vidite na slikama je (mozda i po prvi put na ostrvu) pravilo talase koji su u "okrsaju" sa zasticenom obalom bacali vodu do treceg sprata hotela (dakle govorimo o nekih 8-9m)... Srecom nas je docekalo lepo vreme, ni preterano hladno, ni preterano toplo, jedino nam je vetar zadavao blage muke (moja kosa je poprilicno buntovna pod uticajem vetra i vlage). Ali s obzirom da smo po citav dan bili u zatvorenom izlozbenom prostoru, ni vetar nije predstavljao veliki problem.
A evo par fotografija poslednjeg jutra u gradu Iraklionu...

Glam & Fab Week (19.01.-25.01.)

Instagram @lelazivanovic. Beautiful bouquet. Lepi buketi cveca.
bouquet from my <3
buket od mog <3

Good morning my little jewels! I finally got some rest (better to say good sleep!) and "woke up" after three weeks of a "different pace of life". I'm not getting tired of the movement and action (include there the trips for any purpose), I'm getting tired of stagnation and "nonmoving"...
During these three weeks I wasn't constantly/daily active on the blog (due to the poor internet, as well as the lack of life inspiration), but now I'm here- inspired and motivated for new things in the new year and a different approach to everything that is happening (or has happened) in my life...
But let's not philosophize too much, let's check some parts of this week!:) If you want more similar photos, you can follow me via Instagram... Enjoy your Sunday!<3
...

Dobro jutro draguljcici! Konacno sam se malo odmorila (bolje reci naspavala!) i dosla sebi nakon tri nedelje "drugacijeg tempa zivota". Ne zamara mene pokret i akcija (ukljucite tu i putovanja u bilo koju svrhu), mene zamara stagnacija i "nepomeranje"...
Tokom ove tri nedelje nisam bila konstantno/svakodnevno aktivna na blogu (sto zbog loseg interneta, sto zbog manjka zivotne inspiracije), ali sad sam tu- inspirisana i motivisana za nove stvari u novoj godini i drugaciji pristup svemu sto se desava (ili se desilo) u mom zivotu...
Ali da ne filozofiramo previse, evo nekih delova ove nedelje!:) Ako zelite vise slicnih fotografija, mozete me pratiti preko Instagrama... Uzivajte u nedeljnom danu!<3

Schwarzkopf Bonacure: Moisture Kick spray conditioner

Schwarzkopf Bonacure: Moisture Kick spray conditioner. Schwarzkopf Bonacure hair products.

Like any typical girl/woman, I'm constantly trying new hair products, starting with the shampoos and conditioners, over masks and serums, finishing with the hair styling stuff. Unfortunately, my hair doesn't tolerate excessive use of products intended for use after the basic ones (shampoo and conditioner), so I'm avoiding (as much as I can) a bunch of products that I would so gladly try...
But I always give a chance to some products (that's why I'm hoarding them in the bathroom), and I'm currently trying Schwarzkopf Bonacure "Moisture Kick" spray conditioner. This blue-colored two-phase formula is intended for normal and dry hair that lacks elasticity and bounce, whether it's a wavy/curly or straight.
The application process is simple: after washing the hair use the towel to remove excess water, shake the bottle well, spray the conditioner evenly from the mid of the hair till the ends, then comb your hair and dry it in the usual way. Although there are bigger bottles (200ml and 400ml), I'm super satisfied with this little pack of 50ml cause I can carry it everywhere! 
...

Kao i svaka tipicna devojka/zena konstantno isprobavam proizvode za negu kose, pocevsi od sampona i balzama, preko maski i seruma pa sve do proizvoda za stilizovanje kose. Nazalost moja kosa ne podnosi preteranu upotrebu proizvoda namenjenih nakon koriscenja onih bazicnih (tj sampona i balzama), tako da izbegavam (koliko god mogu) da je opterecujem gomilom proizvoda koje bih iskreno receno- vrlo rado koristila...
Ali uvek dajem sansu nekim proizvodima (zato ih gomilam u kupatilu), i trenutno isprobavam Schwarzkopf Bonacure "Moisture Kick" balzam u spreju. Ova dvofazna formula plave boje je namenjena normalnoj i suvoj kosi kojoj nedostaje elasticnost i hidrantnost, bilo da je talasasta/kovrdzava ili ravna.
Proces nanosenja je sledeci: nakon pranja kose peskirom ukloniti visak vode, dobro promuckati bocicu, ravnomerno poprskati balzam od sredine kose do krajeva, potom rascesljati kosu i osusiti je na uobicajen nacin. Iako postoje veca pakovanja (200ml i 400ml), meni ovo malo pakovanje od 50ml savrseno odgovara jer mogu da ga nosim svuda sa sobom!

Avon jewelry set: Entwined Shimmer

Avon jewelry set- Entwined Shimmer. Avon Jewelry. Avon nakit. Avon jewellery. Jewelry trends 2015.

Colors that remind me of the cold sea with the restless waves overflowing at its surface. Mixture of crystals in three shades of blue and delicately made silver base that emphasizes the beauty of the stones. That's how I would describe in a few words a new jewelry set that I got from Avon called "Entwined Shimmer". Necklace, earrings and ring: a great combination for this chilly weather, and it seems to me a perfect one for the winter...
...

Boje koje me podsecaju na hladno more po cijoj se povrsini prelivaju nemirni talasi. Mesavina kristalcica u tri plave nijanse i srebrnog metala delikatnog rada koji istice lepotu kamenja. Tako bih ja u par reci opisala novi set nakita koji sam dobila iz Avona pod nazivom "Entwined Shimmer". Ogrlica, mindjuse i prsten: divna kombinacija za ovo hladnjikavo vreme, i cini mi se savrsena za zimu...

Glam & Fab Week (12.01.-18.01.)

Heraklion, Crete: view from the hotel
Iraklion, Krit: pogled iz hotela

Hello everyone, how do you spend these days? I'm still in Crete, the exhibition in which we participate ends tomorrow. The weather is much nicer today, no winds, the sea is calmer, the sky is without dark clouds. Tomorrow after the breakfast (if it doesn't rain) we'll walk a bit around the center of Heraklion, maybe go to Knossos (I hope!), and then in the late afternoon we have a flight to Athens. We'll sleep over in Athens, finish some errands on Tuesday morning and then home... and I can announce now that on Wednesday I'm not going anywhere (well at least I think so)!:D
...

Zdravo svima, kako provodite ove dane? Ja sam i dalje na Kritu, izlozba na kojoj ucestvujemo se zavrsava sutra. Vreme je mnogo lepse danas, ne duva vetar, more je mirnije, nebo bez tamnih oblaka. Mi cemo sutra nakon dorucka (pod uslovom ne pada kisa) prosetati malo gradom Iraklionom, mozda odemo do Knososa (nadam se!), pa u kasnim popodnevnim casovima imamo let za Atinu. U Atini cemo prespavati, zavrsiti neke poslice u utorak i onda kuci... i vec najavljujem da u sredu necu nigde ici (barem tako mislim)!:D

Possess perfume and bracelet (from Oriflame)

Oriflame Possess perfume and bracelet. Oriflame perfumes. Oriflame Possess parfem i narukvica.

Morning sugars!!! I got up at 5am this morning (couldn't sleep well), and in one hour or so (which is around 7:30am) we're leaving for Athens. Can't wait to land on the territory of Crete in the afternoon, maybe the change of the environment will boost my mood a bit. Although we will be in Crete for business reasons, at least I have this afternoon/evening and Monday (till 4pm) for personal pleasure!
And here's one set from Oriflame, which I recently received as a gift: "Possess" perfume and bracelet. The perfume belongs to the warm floral notes, and personally it's not my choice for every day (periodically yes), but the bracelet is definitely an item for the "often use"!;)
...

Jutro seceri!! Probudila sam se u 5 jutros (nisam mogla da spavam), i za nekih sat vremena (tj oko 7:30) krecemo ka Atini. Jedva cekam da sletim na Krit u toku popodneva, mozda me promena sredine malo osvezi i oraspolozi. Iako cemo biti na Kritu iz poslovnih razloga, barem imam danasnje popodne/vece i ponedeljak (do 16h) za licno zadovoljstvo!
A evo jednog seta iz Oriflame-a koji sam nedavno dobila na poklon: "Possess" parfem i narukvica. Parfem pripada toplim cvetnim notama, i licno nije moj izbor za svaki dan (periodicno moze), ali je zato narukvica definitivno za cesto nosenje!;)

Glam & Fab Week (05.01.-11.01.)

Marie Claire Italy, January

Good morning sweeties!! I apologize for the absence on the blog these days! Some of you know that I was in Athens for almost a week (due to the fair, which is held in Athens every year), but the internet was terrible! We returned last night, yet we only have two days to rest (I'm "chronically sleep-deprived") cause Thursday morning we're going back to Athens and around noon we fly to Crete (reason: another exhibition). Hyperactive January, as always...
... 

Dobro jutro seceri!! Izvinjavam se zbog odsustva na blogu ovih dana! Neki od vas znaju da sam bila u Atini skoro nedelju dana (zbog sajma na kojem ucestvujemo svake godine), ali je internet bio grozan! Vratili smo se sinoc, ali imamo samo dva dana za odmor (ja sam "hronicno neispavana") jer vec u cetvrtak ujutru idemo ponovo za Atinu i oko podneva letimo za Krit (zbog druge izlozbe). Hiperaktivan januar, kao i uvek...

My Everyday Makeup Routine | Natural Makeup Look (video tutorial)


Hey sugars!! First of all I need to say that I absolutely adore colors and different makeup looks! But sometimes I don't have so much time to do the makeup, or there is no need to wear a lot of makeup, or I'm just tired/lazy to put any makeup.:) In those moments I have my little (and quick) makeup routine, and the final result is a natural look which you can see today!:)
p.s. All products that I used, you can find in the description box of this video on my YouTube channel!
...

Zdravo seceri!! Pre svega moram reci da ja licno obozavam boje i razlicite mejkap trendove i nacine sminkanja! Ali ponekad se desi da nemam puno vremena za sminkanje, ili nema potrebe da nanosim preveliku kolicinu mejkapa, ili sam prosto umorna/lenja da se sminkam!:) U ovim trenucima imam svoju malu (i brzu) mejkap rutinu, i krajnji rezultat je prirodan look koji mozete videti danas!:) Nadam se da vam se dopada!
p.s. Sve proizvode koje sam koristila mozete naci u opisu ovog videa na mom YouTube kanalu!

Avon Planet Spa: Luxurious peel-off face mask with black caviar


This Luxurious peel-off face mask with black caviar extract is a part (as many of you already know!) of my favorite Avon's line: "Planet Spa"! As the name says the main ingredient is the extract of the black caviar that is derived from the Caspian Sea. This extract contains a high concentration of oligoelements, amino acids and mineral salts, which penetrate into the deeper skin layers. One of the advantages of the black caviar that is used for cosmetic purposes, is effectiveness regardless of your skin type or age, which means it has revitalizing effect both on young and mature skin!
...

Ova Luksuzna peel-off maska za lice sa ekstraktom crnog kavijara je deo (sto mnogi od vas vec znaju!) moje omiljene Avonove linije: "Planet Spa"!
Kao sto samo ime kaze glavni sastojak je ekstrakt crnog kavijara koji se dobija iz Kaspijskog mora. Ekstrakt ove ikre sadrzi visoku koncentraciju oligoelemenata, aminokiselina i mineralnih soli, koji prodiru u dublje slojeve koze. Jedna od prednosti crnog kavijara koji se koristi u kozmeticke svrhe je delotvornost bez obzira na tip koze ili vase godine starosti, sto znaci da ima revitalizujuce dejstvo i na mladju i na zreliju kozu!


Application process is simple. On the previously cleansed skin apply a mask in an even layer, avoiding the sensitive areas around the lips and eyes. Allow to dry, and after 15-20 minutes (depending on the layer that you applied) "peel" the mask from the face. The skin is very smooth, soft and refreshed after use!
