Catch of the month | January

It’s that time of the month again…. Time fooooor…. CATCH (catch…catch…) OF (of…of…) THE (the…the…) MONTH (month…month…) ! πŸ˜€

Catch of the month | January

You know from my posts that I love to buy second-hand clothes and accessorizes, I buy in outlets and textile houses and always search for a piece of clothes or fabric that I can use in my DIY projects.

But, I also buy in stores (duuuh πŸ˜€ ). I am the type of person who likes to walk into store and look around but when I actually go shopping, I’m like a woman on a mission. I know what I want, I know how much I’m prepared to spend for it and when I found it I immediately buy it or reserve it till the next day.

That is the case with this super rocker / a bit cowboy boots (heel). I knew that I wanted something like this for winter and I also want something I will be able to wear when I go horse riding. By that I mean, LEARNING how to get up on a horse. Riding horses is my wish and I hope it will come true this year – I am certainly making steps, like buying this boots. πŸ˜‰

They were on sale, from 250kn to 139kn. That is from about 45 $ to about 25 $.

They have also inspired my Leather winter and I am planning to buy a black eco-leather skirt so I think they will match “savrΕ‘eno”. That means perfect. Ε  is pronounced like sh. I have to explain because I know you care hahahaha πŸ˜€

Thank you!! *100 followers*

Thank you!! *100 followers*

I was waiting for this… Mostly beacuse it was at 99 followers for a few days, like the WordPress wanted me to anticipate and appreciate each and every one of you more. ❀

Also, I wanted to use the “100” step to change my Gravatar photo from my cat to me. πŸ™‚

So, hi. Welcome to my corner of internet…

Daily Prompt: Nice is…..

Tell us about the nicest thing you’ve ever done.

A little late to the party, but never is to late πŸ˜‰

—————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

I like being nice to people…who deserve it. Judge me if you like, but I do not tolerate violance. I feel the need to be kind to the people who humble me. It’s an instant reaction.

Yes, I’ve heard that the people who hurt are the ones in pain themselves but I can’t save them. Only they can. So, few days ago, when I was walking into a grocery store with my bf we passed a mom with two daughters, one she held hand to hand (younger) and older was walking next to her. It was snowing so the melting snow created a small puddle on the side. There was no way the older girl (about 4 or 5) could have pass that point without stepping into water. But it was like a centimeterΒ of it, nothing bad. And she had her rubber boots on.

Yet, the mother screamed at her: “Haven’t I told you NOT TO WALK IN THE WATER?!!!!” Normally I don’t interfere with other people schooling their children. But she grabbed her and when I looked at little girl’s face something inside of me snapped. She was frozen, about to cry and looked down with so much expression… She was trying to be as small as possible, not making a sound. And her mother countinued talking something to her holding her VERY tightly on her arm, I didn’t even hear her anymore. I WAS MAD. So I glanced back and yelled at her: “HEY, you’re acting like THAT is the most important thing in the world!” She looked at me with surprise. And continued to focus her agression on me. I did not hear her as we were entering the store holding hands and my bf said: “Let it go, she isn’t worth it.”

Yes, she wasn’t. But the little girl was. I hope I could show her that her mom is not always right. I would be happy knowing that she understood that someone stood up for her.

Do you have time to be happy?

Do you have time to be happy?

I have come across this challenge a while ago and bookmarked it because I knew I wanted to feature it on my blog.

It is called 100happydays and it’s basically submitting a picture what made you happy every day for 100 days in a row. It could be anything… From photos of your beloved ones, friends, favorite coffee place, food, nice view, lovely bench in a park… Anything. πŸ™‚

I love the idea, although I must admit that the term 100 frightens me. It is a challenge indeed. Maybe I will decide to join… That is one more awesome thing about it! You can join whenever you want!

If you are undecided like me, you can also help by translating their front page into your own language and submitting. I did that just now in Croatian.

One paragraph I particularly liked. It said: “If you try to please / make others jealous via your pictures – you lose without even starting.” It is YOUR challenge and YOUR attempt in making yourself happier person with more optimistic view on life and just stopping to appreciate. Even for that moment when you take the picture. πŸ™‚

Lets spread happiness, one picture at a time. πŸ˜‰

Do you want to build a snowman? :)

Spoiler alert: The video is from the animated movie Frozen and it suits the outside so well right now.

I’ve already built mine and posted it on Brace yourself…snow photos are coming. πŸ˜€

Speaking of Frozen, I loved this version of theme song “Let it go” I found yesterday. It is in 25 languages! Croatian isn’t there, but Serbian is – and those two are very alike. Is yours in?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition | The eyes

Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition | The eyes

Street lights usually interfere with my desire to capture sky/clouds/sunset because I don’t live high enough to leave them behind. (Or should I say below)

It is a frustration because it is not the same if I took my camera and run across the street, or try to get a good shot, because the shot I wanted is gone.

So I love this photo. It is like it is. The innocent street light is getting in my way again and like it knows it shows its evil eyes in dark. πŸ™‚

More of this week challenge here.

Brace yourself… photos of snow are coming. β˜Ί

Brace yourself... photos of snow are coming. ☺

Finally! I have been waiting for snow through November, December, holidays…. 😦 Then, the weather reports said it will snow on 16th. it didn’t. So, this time they announced it, I was sceptical.

But, on the friday morning (24th) I woke up to some rain/snow, and from the photo collage above – you can see how it progressed. :mrgreen: The photos are taken in few hours of difference and that’s what makes it so amazing to me. How snow in just a few hours can change everything. From the traffic, scenery to the general mood.

The day started as nothing special and ended in having so much snow for an army of snowmen to be made. And we do take our possibilities seriously!! πŸ˜€ Snowman has been made and he stood proud for a day among other snowmen made that day and one dick. I am sorry, despite the snowmen, my blog is not for children. πŸ˜‰

I hope you will enjoy the gallery of my photos from friday and saturday as much as I enjoyed making them. I’m sending love and snowflakes πŸ™‚ ❅ ❅ ❅ ❅ ❅

Daily Prompt: Mirror, Mirror | Two descriptions of a same person

I’ve been holding on to this amazing video for some time now as I do with a lot of things for blog and life in general… πŸ™‚ I have at the moment probably ten ideas, some of them in my head and some in bookmarks, and maybe even some of them in written about what I want to post on this blog and share in general. Of course I don’t post all of it at once and I have come to realise that this process is so flawless and pieces come together in just the right time.

Yesterday I was looking at this bookmark thinking I want to use it on my blog but it wasn’t incorporated as I wanted it to be. So I thought, well I’ll post it eventually. Turns out I’ll post about it today since it fits perfectly with the Daily Prompt. πŸ™‚

This is amazing campaign to raise awareness about how we see ourselves and how we tend to see our flaws before our talents and virtues, how we can be strict to ourselves, not just for outer appearance, but for everything. Like a strict judge, we judge and frown upon any mistakes making us feel bad about us. Why? This negative process only makes us feel bad and we end up having low self-esteem and depressed. That is foolish, isn’t it? That we do that to ourselves.

Like we invited a very rude guest to our home who is constantly criticizing our every move and insulting us. We would be offended and probably never invite that person over. And yet, we invite our little judge all the time, he can be mean to us. I say, get him out. Show him the door! I did and it took me two years to get him to shut up. He shows up, like a unwanted relative, but now I know what he sounds like and I just don’t let him bring me down.

You are important. You are smart. You are kind. You are unique. You deserve to treat yourself like you treat others (unless you treat others badly). You have made it in your life to this point. You can tell yourself these things when you look in a mirror. It is just a reflection of YOU. πŸ˜‰
