EAT, PRAY, LOVE… #vol 2
How to squeeze in the whole day, a bit of art and a beauty product in just one post? Simple!
Watch me…or read me better said
You must have noticed that the time has been crazy lately. Meetings are getting more and more often, also more and more important. Nevertheless. My city had become the really fast speedster I’m trying to catch up too. More younger and alive than ever, this speedster is breaking all the records. I’m getting more and more in love with it every single day. It didn’t back down in front of all those chilly days, it is obviously not afraid of south wind either so Zagreb, take a bow.
I can’t say I have any excuse why am I always hanging out on those beautiful coffee bar decks. But they are worm and cozy and I like it. Sometimes they remind me of those summer beaches were you go to show off your new collection but this time Zara and H&M have provided all those warm coats and jackets. Cowboy boots, cool jeans…some things just keep coming back as a fashion jackpots. People are prolonging their lunch breaks just so they can show off on their new feathers. Whoever does not skip a few working hours is pretty weird tab. Maybe even from another planet.
Of course there are a lot of new places to visit, redesigned ones and all others. Events are coming up. It’s impossible to be on all of them so here are my first choices:
NEW „KAVA TAVA“ AT THE BRITAIN SQUERE
Britain square is personally one of the better looking market places cause they have this antique-flower offer that always make my wallet feel a little bit lighter afterwards. I love the fact that soon there will not be any more room for my hobby of buying those porcelain sets and using them as a prop for my photos. On the corner of Ilica street, a new Kava Tava moved in, after some fancy furniture selling place that couldn’t keep up in this country and a pretty unique and respective restaurant/showroom that didn’t make it. It was like it waited for that place to be tried by the unworthy ones and then simply walked in and said, we’re here to stay! Designed in a perfectly Croatian way, with mostly toasts and American creeps, served on those cute, little cushions, it could also be a great place to just come and be happy with the one you love. Interior looks amazing with coffee mugs, a little Vespa and a small hall that was rebuild in a way of the inside of an airplane that serves for watching movies. Spectacular!
IGNJAT JOB AT KLOVIĆEVI DVORI
I am a fan of Vincent Van Gogh so I couldn’t have waited for a Croatian version to be opened. Ignjat is one of the most influential artists of the Croatian modern art period. Press have really shown him and his new upcoming show in a great light saying things like: „an artist that painted and die with the art itself“. Invitation guaranteed.
Somehow you turn up in this other version of space. In which things that matter here, don’t there. When the highest form of communication was a simple, hand written letter. No phones no emoji’s. Just sincere emotions. Paintings had the same effect.
Unfortunately short and traumatic life had Ignjat have and you can see that through his artwork. You have been wondering who are those artists you keep seeing in his paintings, the ones you have been studying in high school…and you got’em all a little bit confused. (El Greco, Goya, Breughel, Munch). I am a bit ashamed. Art lessons have been taken for granted far too much. Then, out of nowhere a version of „Van Gogh“ resurfaced in his artwork. The Mediterranean motives that have always been inspiring him: Supetar on Brač where he had his workshop, Dubrovnik, Komiža…and the at the end all those lifelike scenes from the tap house that remind us on that French maestro Lautrec. Željka and myself are getting out in love with the artwork we just saw. We’re coming back to reality with the help of row cake at this place called Vis-a-Vis. Getting back to our phones and texts and social networks. The colours that surround us… unfortunately.

At the end, something more for my girls. Luxury, cute, adorable.
