Shopping and Great Cafes in Zagreb

The best part about visiting Zagreb is SHOPPIIIIIIIIIIIIIING!!! I love shopping, shopping is my cardio, it's a great way to release the tension after a long week;)) Considering the fact that we live in a world of globalization, I avoided all the shops that I already know and we already have in Slovenia on purpose and wanted to ''explore new horizons'' with edgy shops with new brands and one of them was definitely Vešmašina:

 The Vešmašina display window. I personally fell for the Falling Whistles Necklaces (far left). 
They are seriously cool. And they really do whistle;)

House of Harlow Jewelry, my personal favorite is the wishbone necklace (far right top)

I fell in love with Wildfox sweatshirts!

You do not want to piss the person wearing these shoes off.

The Inglot make up store was phenomenal with a wide variety of colorful make up to choose from. 
I was like a kid in a candy store!

and Illamasqua store:

As far as cafes go, if you want to go for something homey and comfy, I would definitely recommend Cafe Amelie

This chestnut cake is to die for!

Another great Cafe is Velvet. Great ambience, great drinks, great pumpkin soup!

Extra tip: go to the Velvet in the evening, when all the pretty lights are on:)

I hope you found this post helpful,

Have a good one,



Street Style in Zagreb Day 2

As I was saying, there is no better place for people watching than at Špica, Zagreb. I love people watching. I always get such an inspiration when I see what they are wearing and what kind of things they combine. So cool.

I was really excited about my second day in Zagreb because the sun finally broke through the clouds and everything in Zagreb looked even more beautiful. Don't you think that the world looks so beautiful when the sun is shining? Seriously, all your problems seem so trivial and they just melt away and all that is left is the gorgeous sunshine...

This is what purgeri wear when they are walking on sunshine:

Have a nice Tuesday,



Street Style in Zagreb Day 1

After spending weeks and weeks in rainy Ljubljana I decided that it was time to leave my country for a short while and see something fresh and new. Although Zagreb is just a two-hour train ride away from Ljubljana, I don't go often there and now, after this weekend, I have decided that the time has come for me to start visiting Zagreb on a regular basis:) In terms of fashion, Zagreb will not disappoint, purgeri  (an old term for people from Zagreb) have an uncanny sense of style, whether they just go out walking their dogs or getting blinged up for a party. What they wear is truly a delight for the eye.

So, what is there for a fashion blogger like me to do?

Take the friggin' camera out of my bag, stop people on the street and take pictures like there's no tomorrow. Here's what I saw:

Have a happy Monday,




Recipe: Muesli Cookies

I was experimenting in my kitchen yesterday and I'm telling you, these cookies are delicious goodness. I made four trays of them for my friends and they disappeared on me 0_0 I tried only, like, three:S
Time to make a new batch, don't you think? Here's the recipe:

(Makes about 50)

230 g butter
90 g caster sugar
100 g dark brown sugar
5 eggs
5 ml vanilla essence
350 g plain flour
5 g soda powder
a pinch of salt
15 g oat cereal
15 g ground cacao nibs
15 g raisins
80 g finely chopped dark chocolate
20 g cacao powder
20 g chopped roasted hazelnuts

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Cover the baking tray with baking paper. With an electric mixer, cream the butter and both sugars together until light and fluffy.

In another bowl, mix the egg and the vanilla essence, then gradually beat into the butter mixture. Sift over the flour, soda, salt and stir. Add the cereals, cacao nibs, raisins, pieces of dark chocolate, cacao powder, and hazelnuts. Mix to combine well.

Place heaped teaspoonfuls of the dough 5 cm apart on the baking paper. Bake the oven until lightly colored, about 15-20 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

These cookies are a great comfort food, because you can tell yourself that because there's oat cereal, raisins and dark chocolate in them, they are actually healthy, so you can eat a whole bunch of them.

Open Stage at Zlati Zob

Yesterday, I went to the Open Stage Night at Zlati Zob, an ethnic bar in Ljubljana. The Open Stage Night was for Oriental and Tribal Fusion Dancers of all levels and the heat was on!

I love belly dance, I think that there's something magical about it. The women look so feminine and confident. And every time when I see a really good belly dancer performing on stage, doing the shimmies, undulations, belly rolls and my personal favorite - the sidewinder, completely lost in her own world, where there's nothing left to be said, I'm like WOW! This is it, this is what life is all about.

I was enjoying the evening so much, I got lost and I got found - in the magical world of belly dance.

The act started with Vesna Zorman from the Ambrosia Dance Company. 
Gorgeous performance, gorgeous costume!

The Black Onyx Tribe did a marvelous job performing on stage. Juicy!

Don't you just love the oriental dance? :)

Anja Kucler from the Black Onxy Tribe was shining like a star

The Zuzanas from Zagreb brought positive vibes on stage

The girls from Bela Krajina brought Spring to the foggy November evening

The Ambrosia Dance Company was turning up the heat on stage

Have a wonderful weekend,
