“No I’m not lucky I’m blessed, YES!”

“Heavy weight champion me

But I could do it all alone – we”

You don’t have to be like ❓ , it’s me, you know it’s a song… 😉

When I pause in that moment to come up with a title and turn to my mind… I know what I’m gonna find. It is quite handy to have stored lyrics for every occasion haha…

I am thankful, very much! I have been awarded again and again, but just didn’t have the enthusiasm needed to do this… I hope you forgive me, it really means a lot to me. ❤

I was looking at posts where I have been nominated and found something super interesting and amusing. I have got one award for Sisterhood of World Blogger Award, one for Very Inspiring Blogger and THREE awards for One Lovely Blog!

I guess that makes my blog…. THREE TIMES MORE LOVELY!



Bam-ts! 😀


Okidoki, now it’s time for the mentions and praising and I have no idea for what else, but I will found out in about 30 seconds.

First, Tina The Mess from The Borderline Personality humbled me with two awards in June, Very Inspiring Blogger and One Lovely Blog Award. Thank you! I hope you are fine going on better!

Mumojay from Cookie My lifestyle cooked my lifestyle up with another One Lovely Blog Award in July. THANK YOU! ❤

Vic from Shards of silence kindly presented to me another One Lovely Blog Award, and to definitely convince me that my blog is super lovely, Christina from Lifebeinggirly nominated/awarded me today. 🙂

Vic, thanks so much, I hope you didn’t choose me just because you didn’t have anyone else to give the award to (not being a guy) 😛

Christina, thanks. 🙂 I think you walk half feet of the ground and need a stone just to hold you how positive you come across.

It really makes me happy when you nominate me for whatever you want to nominate me for. I might won’t make a post about it, or follow the rules, but you’ll know you made my day… ❤

They are cool to look at like this, right? 😀 I had to do it…

So… Now the fun part. I think I am supposed to answer 7 things about me for every one…that is too much things about me, even for your tender eyes, my dearest. I’m just gonna say (brag) what I did (saw) today.

International Space Station is circulating over Croatia from today up until August 19. And they had mentioned that it will be visible at 21 (9 pm), but I missed that. I was sad, but then I read that it will be visible again in 22:38 (10 pm) and I went on the balcony. I have pretty good view and I was determined to see it because it has been cloudy for…. years now, and today is clear sky. And then I saw it. What, the Station? Nope, the first of this years Perseid’s meteors!!! 😀 It is a yearly event, happens in mid August for Northern Hemisphere and I enjoy in it! Specially because last year I found a place without light pollution from city lights and lied down on grass looking at stars and meteors passing through… Plus; I saw the Station today too! It looks like a bright star moving very fast on the sky 😀


I love stars ans sky and you know that already. To see a meteor is exciting to me… I feel alive and special and extra small at the same time,living on this tiny planet compared to universe.

p.s. About nominations, I have been a slacker in reading your blogs… I know that. I will make an effort to change it! In the mean time, if anyone feels the great need to have One Lovely Blog Award, they can take it. 🙂 Just tell me you did so in the comment section.

Love ya!

Starting off May with awards and randomness


It has been raining/cloudy for a few days and it feels so good. I love the rain…thunder… I love it. I love sunny wheather also, but I am so much more in a mood for rainy days, so me and nature are in sync.


Awards. Thank you for complimenting my blogging this way. 🙂

I have been thinking about nomination this time away from computer. So, it’s extra special.

Thank you Arlene from Ari’s World for this Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award and another Dragon Loyalty Award. It got me thinking and I was left blessed. You will know why soon. I have met seven amaziiiiiiing women here who have been there for me in one way or another, and continue to be there for me even though they know me only through blogging… Their support means a lot to me. ❤



(Please don’t feel offended if you aren’t on the list, I was limited with seven.)

They are in no particular order:


These are among others, my sisters in the WP family ❤ I am very grateful for connecting with them.

I have got another award from Cee Lee from Swim in the Adult Pool, The Lovely Blog Award. Since I have already got it, I thought about giving it to the few of my latest follows who have really amazed me.

They are:

peacefulblessedstar from peacefulblessedstar
tamtam012013 from Perhaps yes, perhaps no. Exactly? I don’t know.
dorothychiotti from Musings of a Horse Mum
Shayne from The Book of Shayne
Neha from forgottenmeadows


And… seven random facts about myself, me and I… 🙂

1.    My nails are perfect. Seriously. My fingernails are beautiful, they don’t break, chip and they are au naturel. I have a photo for non believers. 😉 I also don’t let anyone near them, that means I have never had a manicure, I hate someone messing with my nails. I manicure them myself and I do it magnificently!

2.    I was born with one eye closed, it didn’t open for three days and doctors were like “Whaaaaaaaaa…t?” I imagine. They thought I would have a lot of problems but although I have to wear glasses, the difference between my eyes is very small in term of diopter.

3.    I was a straight A student (we have 1-5 here) up until college. He he

4.    I hate, hate horror movies. There is NOTHING enjoyable in them for me.

5.    I’m allergic to silver. So, its gold or no sold. XD
6.    My real name is Iva, but I know you are not pronouncing it right so I go by my nickname Ivy
7.    If you ever wondered why it says Ivyon when I comment – wonder no more! It is because Ivy is on-line when she is commenting. See! And you thought it was French.
