Pre nego što virusi napadnu… / Before Viruses Attack

Sezona je virusa. Malo, malo, pa mi se deca razbole. Idu u vrtić i to je sasvim normalna stvar.

Ovaj outfit sam uspela da prošetam pre par nedelja, baš pred početak svih tih prehlada.

U petak bi trebalo da skoknem na probni trening samoodbrane za žene. Slučajno sam videla obaveštenje i baš sam zainteresovana. Unapred se radujem, čućete utiske.

A sada puštam fotke da govore umesto mene 🙂

Na kraju post-a sam navela spisak stvari koje sam obukla i odakle su.

Uživajte!

We’re in the middle of the ‘flu season’. My kids get sick A LOT, which is perfectly understandable since they go to kindergarten. Before all that started, I managed to don this outfit couple of weeks ago.

I saw an announcement for Aikido-based women’s self-defense course. First training session is for free, so I’ve decided to give it a go on Friday. I’ll let you know how it went.

As for the outfit, I’ll let the photos speak on my behalf 🙂 Scroll to the bottom of the post to see what I’m wearing here 🙂 Enjoy!

Jaknicu sam kupila na sniženju kod Kineza za 1250 dinara, marka J&J. Prelepa providna tunika je kupljena na buvljaku za 100 dinara. Neko je već secnuo etiketu, jedino što piše jeste da je italijanska. Bela ešarpa sa srebrnkastim nitima je bila 50 dinara u secondhand radnji. Farmerke su kupljene u lokalnoj prodavnici džinsa, oko 1800 dinara. Čizmice kaubojke sam nabavila za svoju svadbu 🙂 Naručila sam ih preko nekog od onih sajtova tipa Kupujem – Prodajem. Kožne su i, ako se dobro sećam, bile su negde oko 3000 (polovne su).

Uživajte u jesenjim danima i nadam se da će vas virusi zaobići. Ako ne, nabacite na sebe omiljene krpice i zaobiđite vi njih 😉

J&J jacket – Chinese shop, 1250  dinars. A gorgeous transparent tunic – flea market, 100 dinars. I can’t tell the manufacturer because the label’s been partially cut off, but it’s Italian. White scarf with silver threads – secondhand store, 50 dinars. Jeans – the local shop, 1800 dinars. Cowboy boots were first worn at my wedding 🙂 I ordered them online, they’re secondhand, leather, and were app. 3000 dinars.

Enjoy the autumn and I hope you don’t get caught by viruses 😉 Stay away from them and wear your favorite pieces 🙂

Majčinstvo – ne budi prestroga prema sebi / Motherhood – Don’t Be Too Hard On Yourself

Kao prvo, pozdrav svima, a još veći pozdrav svim majkama. Kao što i same znate, biti majka je iskustvo koje se ne može uporediti ni sa čim što ste prethodno doživele, skup najlepših mogućih osećanja, a u isti mah i velikih strepnji. Onog trenutka kada su moje devojčice došle na ovaj svet, počeo je novi život. Dani i godine pre toga postali su nejasni eho Jeleninog bitisanja. Past perfect tense.

Prvih godinu dana je bilo jako naporno, i fizički i psihički. Idealan teren za totalni burnout – neredovna ishrana, nespavanje, strepnja nad decom, nepoznat teren, što sve vodi do velikih sumnji u sebe i osipanja samopouzdanja.

Kako je vreme odmicalo, postajala sam spretnija, pohvatala cake i uspela da dođem do stadijuma kad, zapravo, uživam u svojoj deci. Korak po korak.

Ništa novo neću otkriti u ovom post-u. Samo želim da pružim podršku svim majkama i kažem da je u redu praviti greške. U redu je razmišljati da li si dovoljno dobra.

U redu je isplakati se. U redu je poželeti da možeš da spavaš bar još sat vremena. U redu je da te okolina ne razume, da ti svako priča kako bi trebalo da se ponašaš. U redu je da uveče, kada deca zaspe, uzmeš da pročitaš nešto ili jednostavno uživaš u tišini. U redu je da nekad nemaš volju da se doteraš.

U redu je biti ljudsko biće. Jesi dovoljno dobra. Takva kakva si. Ako nisi zadovoljna trenutnim, veruj mi, biće bolje.

Upijaj svaki lep trenutak sa decom, jer oni su izvor prave radosti. Uči od dece da je jedina sreća živeti u ovoj sekundi, nauči od njih da se udubiš u ono što radiš, da se cela posvetiš, makar to bilo pranje sudova.

Nauči od dece da nije bitno kako izgledaš, nego da se dobro zabaviš i pokažeš osećanja.

I svaki put kad te savlada umor ili stres, zagrli ih. Poljubi, izgnjavi. Deluju kao infuzija 🙂 Ta najdivnija bića na svetu celom koja će te naučiti o životu i sebi više od bilo koga/čega drugog.

Živele majke i njihova deca ❤

Pišite mi koji su izazovi kod vas prisutni kada je u pitanju majčinstvo, volela bih da čujem mišljenja na tu temu.

Hi everyone, mothers especially! As you already know, being a mother is incomparable to anything you previously experienced. A set of the most wonderful emotions ever and, at the same time, the biggest fears you could imagine. The moment my two little girls were born, a new life began. All those days and years before their birth turned into a blurred echo of my existence. Past Perfect Tense.

First year was a major physical and mental blow. All the factors gathered perfectly to create a total burnout – eating at irregular times, lack of sleep, anxiety, unknown terrain, all leading to high amounts of self-doubt and gradual destruction of my self-confidence.

As time went by, I became more skillful and came to a point where I actually enjoy my kids. Step by step.

I will not make any great discoveries in this post. I just want to offer my support and kind words to all the mothers out there and tell them that it’s OK to make mistakes. It’s OK questioning yourself whether you’re good enough.

It’s OK to have a good cry. It’s OK to crave one more hour of sleep. It’s OK if the people around you don’t get you and keep telling you how you should behave. In the evening, when your kids are asleep, it’s OK to read a book or just enjoy the silence. It’s OK not to be in the mood for getting all dolled up.

It’s OK being human. You ARE good enough. Just the way you are. If you’re not satisfied with how the things are going, trust me, it will get better.

Savor every moment spent with your kids for they are pure, undiluted essence of joy. Let your kids teach you that happiness means living in the moment, let them teach you to be mindful whatever it is you’re doing, even if it’s just washing dishes.

Let them teach you that looks don’t matter. What matters is that you have fun and show your feelings.

And every time you’re gripped by fatigue or stress, hug your kids. Kiss them, cuddle with them. Children have the same effect as intravenous infusion 🙂  Those most wonderful creatures in the world will teach you all you need to know about life and yourself.

Long live mothers and their children ❤

Message of Love

Sepia Tone Filter: https://www.tuxpi.com/photo-effects/sepia-toneVikend u Beogradu 🙂 Uspela sam da se lepo odmorim i to na nogama! Šetala sam, upijala svaki detalj… Takođe sam po prvi put posetila Botaničku baštu “Jevremovac” u kojoj sam neizmerno uživala i gde su ove fotografije i nastale.

***

Weekend in Belgrade 🙂  I managed to let myself rest, on my feet! I took long walks, taking up the time to admire my surroundings… I’ve visited Jevremovac Botanical Garden for the first time, had so much fun and took these photos there.

Pesma koja mi se vrtela na mp4 plejeru dok sam putovala ka belome gradu je “Message of Love” jednog od omiljenih mi bendova – Journey.

During a bus ride, I listened to Message of Love (by one of my favorite bands Journey) on repeat. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xT-xNlzsJ9U

Dan je bio sunčan, kuma i ja raspoložene za špartanje i tu greške nije bilo 😉

It was a sunny day, my godmother and I in for some serious strolling – a winning combination!

Outfit je odabran pred put, sva sam u bojama jer sam unapred dozivala sunce da mi se pridruži u razbijanju jesenje monotonije.

I chose my outfit before embarking on a trip. It’s all too colorful because I was trying to lure the sun to come out and join us in fighting the autumn dullness.

Čizme su kao iz prethodnog posta, kupljene pre dve godine u prodavnici “Planika”, kožne, tamnobraon.

Pantalone sam pazarila kod Kineza za hiljaduinešto dinara, takođe braon sa svetlijim mrljama. Takve pantalone moja sestra zove “buđave”.

I tu sam stala sa jesenjim bojama i osvežila kombinaciju šarenom bluzicom Anatopik, prljavobelom heklanom majicom sa resama (koju obožavam i nosim često) i pletenim bolerom Apanage. Majica i bluzica su kupljene na lokalnom buvljaku za 50-ak dindži, believe it or not, a bolero u secondhand prodavnici i koštao je nekih 300 dinara.

Do sledećeg čitanja, volite sebe i igrajte se bojama!

The dark brown leather boots are the same ones I was wearing in a previous post, bought two years ago in Planika shop.

Pants are bought in a Chinese shop for about 1000 dinars, brown with faded spots. My sister calls pants like these ‘moldy pants’.

And that was it for the autumn colors. I refreshed the outfit by choosing a colorful Anatopik shirt, crocheted shirt with fringes (I love it and wear it A LOT) and Apanage knitted shrug. First two were bought at a local flea market, 50 dinars each, believe it or not, and the shrug was bought at a secondhand store for about 300 dinars.

Until next time, love yourself and play with colors, give them a go!
