Daily Dose of Pinterest Inspiration

Pinterest is a great tool to get you inspired!
I use it for my work. I use it when I need to find some new recipes. I use it when I am up to some new DIY project. I use it all the time. Sometimes even little bit too much. :) Pinterest obsessed!

It's Sunday, perfect day for little bit chillaxing. So, here is my dose of inspiration that will help me survive the week ahead of me!

This is the old recipe from Lizzy from Your Cup of Cake blog. Looks yummi! My little one is having her first birthday party in couple of weeks, so I need to find some perfect cupcakes for that!


This is one of the 46 awesome string light DIYs you can find on this link. I love it because it says 'dream', one thing you should never forget to do! If your dreams don't scare you, they are just not big enough!


 Perfect! I just love how the different types of art pieces look great together on the white wall.

I miss snail mail sometimes. Here you can find tutorial for simple DIY envelopes with washi tape.


What inspired you today?

10 Awesome Things I Love About London

In a few weeks I will be visiting London once again. If it's up to me, I would fly there every single month. Well, maybe one day when I won the lottery or something like that. Maybe I should start playing!
Here are 10 things why I adore London!

1. Big Ben, Tower Bridge, Hyde Park, London Eye...

London is just magnificent. You can just walk around and you will see gorgeous buildings everywhere! I can't even choose my favorite place in London because I love them all so much!

2. Telephone Boots

For some reason I am in love with telephone boots. They are so magical to me, like a reminder of an old time. And the red ones are just my favorites!

3. Tea



I love tea. No, I really really really love tea! The city where nobody thinks that you can drink tea only when you have a flu or something - that's my kind of city!

4. Pubs


Simple place where you can have something to eat while drinking a good beer and watching the game (maybe even horse racing or a polo game). Love that kind of places! On the picture you can see a vegetarian meal, but of course - they have meat :)))

5. Sherlock Holmes

 Sherlock Holmes lived here - enough said!

6. Parks


London has beautiful parks. And the best thing about the parks is that people are actually enjoying them! Everyone is hanging out in parks, talking, laughing, playing, eating - I love that. If I sit here in the park and start having my lunch, everyone would think I am crazy!

7. Squirrels

Who doesn't like squirrels? They are just adorable and the ones that live in London are friendly and love people!

8. Camden


My favorite part of London! Charming, vibrant, diverse - can't wait to walk those streets again!

9. The Beatles

Don't ask me to choose favorite Beatles song! That would be like asking mother what is her favorite child. Moms don't have favorite child, of course!

10. Shopping in Oxford Street

The last but not the least - shopping in Oxford Street. I could spent all day long just walking around Oxford street and going to every single shop that exists there!

89 Acts of Kindness

Have you heard about the '89 Acts of Kindness'? I heard about this girl and her noble mission few months ago and I was really inspired. It's always nice to hear stories that give you hope that there is still good people out there.

She started her page to track the 89 acts of kindness that she planned to perform in memory of her great-grandmother. She wrote updates on her acts of kindness almost every day and while she was doing that, she had more and more fans - including me! What did she do so far? She volunteered, gave food to homeless people... well, I don't want to spoil you her page, so you better check it out for yourself!

I had to share this with you, because I believe that single person can change the world! And world definitely needs some changing. 

And what act of kindness did you do recently?

I Am Alive :)

Hello hello my virtual friends.
Long time no see...
I had so many plans about this blog while I was pregnant, but life sometimes gets in our way, so all my plans just went dead. But ok, I am not complaining.
I have lots of news, but the biggest one is that on 5th of June my baby girl came to this world. She is great - she is just eating, sleeping, being cute..
I miss writing, I miss blogging, but she takes all my free time so I barely have time to write two or three sentences..
But, I wanted to let you all know my happy news and I hope I will be able to write little bit more soon!

Kisses from 'too hot to live' Croatia!

In Bruges

So, we are still in Belgium, but this time we are visiting Bruges, a city completely different from Brussels. I don't think I can even describe the beauty of Bruges.


When I told my friends I was going to visit Belgium, few of them told me that I HAVE to visit Bruges. I didn't know what was all the fuzz about, but now I do. You won't find such a magical city anywhere. You will feel like you traveled to the past! It's like a fairytale!!
We came there by train from Brussels and when we started to walk around I told my husband: "The only thing that is missing here are horses with carriages".. And guess what - they do have it!
Bruges is located in the northwest of the country. Like some other canal-based cities, it is sometimes referred to as "The Venice of the North".
Of course, we have to try some famous Belgian beer while we were here. I was already pregnant, so I didn't drink it, but my husband and our friends loved it. And I loved the place! Lots of tourists from all around the world, all kind of beer, great music..
The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. I especially liked the Market square. The only thing I didn't like was the fact that it was raining :(

We were there only one day, but it's not so big, so it's enough time to see everything. And would I like to go back there one day? DEFINITELY!
