The Count of Nuts

 My husband and I went out for dinner last night (and yet again I'm wondering why I can't button up some of my trousers...hmm)
I really hate humid weather because my hair gets all frizzy and curly and puffy even with all hair products I use in tendency to control it. Seems it has a life on its own, so I gave up. Let it be.The good thing is that summer is coming. 
Speaking of the summer, I bought some lovely Fruttini cosmetics, Milky Orange collection that I use every summer. Love that summery, joyful scent. Also bought two Astor Quick 'n go! nail polishes (I think I've just discovered my new obsession. No more nail polishes, I promise. At least not for a month).

Ivory shade (number 200) and Coral Reef ( Kisses from Mexico collection)
These days I'm reading Count of Monte Christo by Alexandre Dumas, which is one of my favourite books ever. Such an interesting and complexed novel about betrayal, revenge and remorse. The best thing is that I finally got my own copy on the Book Fair last year, and bought these 3 books for 1 euro each (in hardcover!). I find amazing the fact that all the great writers cost a lot cheaper than modern wannabe authors. Good for me.



And, for the end, some healthy snacks from my Grandma's garden:

Cat in the hat

( Or should I say Peacock in the hat :-) )
If I wait for the rain to stop, I'm gonna wait forever. Or at least it seems so. I took my chance with an outdoor post and I must say I was pretty lucky because as soon as I've finished with taking these photos, the rain started to pour. 
 For today I matched a bordeaux Liz Claiborne hat with a grey shirt with peacock on it (I found it in a no name store and it cost about 3.5 eur, unbelievable) and striped Pimkie trousers I bought in Spain a couple of years ago (there is no Pimkie store in Serbia yet). The bag came with Grazia magazine as a gift last month. I wore my Don Juan red nail polish because I love the combination of red and grey.

Brighten my rainy day

I danas kiša. Počinjem da se ljutim. Malo me je oraspoložio veseli paketić iz Avona i šarene stvarčice koje sam naručila, pa sam rešila da ih predstavim u jednom brzinskom postu:
Tu su: 
- Pena za kupanje sa mirisom mandarine i jasmina, savršena za predstojeće leto (koje, opet, nikako da stigne)
- Svetlucavi losion za telo (volim proizvode iz Skin So Soft kolekcije jer su dovoljno hidratantni i prijatnog, nenametljivog mirisa. Ovaj iz Glamorous Gold edicije mi se dopada, mada moj muž tvrdi da miriše na trulu biljku. Nema on pojma. )
- Nailwear pro+ lakovi za nokte. Imala sam samo jedan lak iz ove kolekcije, pa sam naručila još ova dva u veselim letnjim bojama - mint i limun žutoj.
- Moisture seduction sjaj za usne Sweet Clementine: moram reći da sam malo razočarana jer se uživo boja prilično razlikuje od one u katalogu. Mislila sam da će vući na narandžasto (što i jeste boja klementine), ali je sav rozikast. 
Lemon Sugar & Sea Breeze
Kad sam već kod lakova za nokte, moram da pomenem Don Juan domaće lakove koji su iznenađujuće kvalitetni. Hvala Makeup and more što mi je skrenula pažnju na njih. Kupila sam klasični crveni i veoma često ga nosim:
I malo mojih omiljenih kremica, Bath&Body Works losioni za telo. Prelepo mirišu i zgodni su za putovanja. Dva poslednja su iz kompleta za aromaterapiju, mada mi se crveni (Sensual) ne dopada jer je prejak. Ostali su divni, na čelu sa ovim zelenim za opuštanje:
Ovaj Hyson čaj sam tek nedavno otkrila i baš mi se sviđa što u jednoj kutiji dobijem 6 različitih vrsta čaja (po 5 kesica od svake). Omiljeni su mi Earl Grey i Midsummer Peach.

Museums

The Night of the Museums is an annual event held in Belgrade and, from this year, in a couple of other cities in Serbia as well. With a ticket that costs 400 RSD (which is less than 4 euros) you can visit almost all the museums and galleries in town, theoretically, because it's not doable to visit over 50 locations in only one night (from 6 p.m. till 1 a.m.). I usually manage to see 4-5 museums which is absolutely fine with me. 
Ove godine sam na Noć muzeja opet išla sa tatom i opet smo se lepo proveli. Kao i prošle godine, krenuli smo od Muzeja Nikole Tesle na Slaviji, i onda krenuli ka Terazijama i Kalemegdanu. 
Nikola Tesla Museum
 Tesline lične stvari iz apartmana hotela Njujorker, gde je proveo poslednjih deset godina svog života.
National Tourism Organization of Serbia
Ethnographic Museum
Ove godine tema je bila sujeverje u narodu, pa su se svuda mogle videti crne mačke (od kartona), razbijeno ogledalo, proročica koja je posetiteljkama gledala u kuglu i ispisana razna narodna verovanja.
Military Museum
Ove godine sam prvi put posetila Vojni muzej, koji spada u najznačajnije vojne muzeje u Evropi. Nemoguće j na brzinu pregledati sve što se u njemu nudi pošto se u njemu nalaze eksponati iz doba germanskih plemena (3. vek p.n.e.), pa sve do bombardovanja 1999. godine.
Faculty of Philosophy
Historical Museum
 Tema postavke Istorijskog muzeja bio je Takovski ustanak.
Nameravala sam da posetim i muzej Hemijskog fakulteta, ali sam odustala zbog predugačkog reda. Uvek je tako - što kasnije dođeš, zatekneš veću gužvu, zato prvo treba obići ono što nam je najviše stalo da pogledamo.

Silver & Orange

I took a few pics before going out with my friends. My style can be described as classic, but didn't want it to be too dull so I applied some orange nail polish ( Urban Orange from Maybelline) and found an old broken necklace which I ''fixed'' with tying some oxford blue organdy ribbon as a bow clasp.
What do you think?

Shopping night

Grazia Shopping night se održava nekoliko puta godišnje. Sinoć sam zbog toga posetila Delta city, ali sam mudro otišla oko 19h, u nadi da ću izbeći gužvu. Zalud. Redovi pred kabinama su već bili formirani, gužva na sve strane, naročito u prodavnicama Mango, Aldo, Sephora, pa čak i u onima u kojima nije bilo popusta, poput Zare. Ovo mi je bio drugi put da idem na Shopping Night i mogu slobodno da kažem - nikad više. Popust, kakav god da je (a i nije neki, ionako će sav taj asortiman biti na sniženju za mesec dana), nije vredan laktanja i gušenja u gomili. Na raspolaganju sam imala samo sat vremena tako da nisam sve obišla niti preterano mnogo kupovala. Na odlasku sam videla da horde ljudi tek pristižu, tako da sam onu najgoru gužvu ipak izbegla.
Slede slike i plen od sinoć:

Ovo je slikano pre samog početka, kad nije bilo mnogo ljudi




A evo i šta sam kupila:

Klasična crna suknja do kolena, velika bela majica sa likom tigra i cvetna košuljica kratkih rukava. Sve je pamučno.

Six je imao akciju - kupiš 2 artikla i treći platiš samo 1 dinar, tako da sam uzela ova dva prstena i broš u obliku banane.

Moram da priznam da sam ovaj dezodorans uzela samo zbog  živopisne ambalaže. Miris je ok, ali ništa specijalno.

Na kraju sam uzela i ulaznice za predstojeću Noć muzeja, kad sam već tu. Jedva čekam!

Flowery

Floral print is one of the ultimate trends for spring/summer season 2012. Whether you're gonna wear florals from head to toe or just one garment in that pattern, it's up to you. I prefer the second option and wear only one floral piece at a time (dresses included). Guess I don't like being too bold.

Cvetni print je jedan od vodećih trendova ove sezone, a proleće je već uveliko počelo, pa sam i ja iskopala svoje cvećke iz ormara. Moram da priznam da ih ne nosim baš često, iako mi se dopadaju, i da nikad ne bih kombinovala dva različita cvetna dezena odjednom.
This dress my mom made for me when I was 7 years old. Of course, I'm not wearing it anymore, but I'm so glad I kept it.
My favourite vintage clothing website, Etsy, has some really great flower-printed garments:
