Of Love and Shadow by Isabel Allende/O ljubavi i senci od Izabele Aljende

By on July 19, 2018

Ovo je drugi roman Izabele Aljende koji opisuje dešavanja za vreme vojne hunte. U samom romanu nije eksplicitno naznačeno o kojoj zemlji je reč ali po svemu sudeći spisateljica opisuje svoj rodni Čile. Ovo je ljubavna priča smeštena u epicentar vojne represije koja je činila zlodela nad narodom. Glavni junaci su Irene Alkantara, novinarka i Fransisko Leal, doseljenik iz Španije koji radi kao fotograf. Fransisko i Irene prolaze kroz niz dogodovština na trnovitom putu do istine o vojnoj diktaturi. U zemlji vlada prividan mir, dok vojska hapsi i ubija nedužne seljake i rasparčava im zemlju. Prikazane su političke, ekonomske i kulturne prilike jednog doba. Nikako ne treba zanemariti ulogu crkve koja je u ovom delu presudna. 

O ljubavi i senci” je svedočanstvo napisano da se nikad ne zaborave ti nemili dogadjaji na tlu Latinske Amerike i da vreme ne nagrize sve te živote koji su pali pod strahovitom diktaturom. Ovo je dokaz stradanja, boli i patnje jednog naroda, ali i ljubavi koja nas sve može spasiti. 

 

This is the second novel of Isabel Allende describing events during military junta. The novel itself doesn’t explicitly say where the story goes on but considering everything, the writer is describing her home country Chile. This love story is placed in the epicenter of military repression that did evil deeds to its people. Main characters are Irene Alkanatara and Francisco Leal, a migrant from Spain who works as a photographer together with Irene in a magazine. Francisco and Irene are going through a series of events on their thorny path to find out the truth about military dictatorship. There is apparent peace in the country while army kills innocent peasants and divides their land. Political, economic and cultural climate of an era is presented. The role of the church which is crucial in this work of art must not be disregarded. 

‘Of Love and Shadows’ is a testimony written so that those terrible events on the soil of Latin America would not be forgotten and the memory of all those lives lost under the devastating regime would not be gnawed by time. This is a proof of suffering and pain of Chilean people, but also of love that could save us all.

Maska za čišćenje kože lica/Cleansing Face Mask

By on May 26, 2018

Pošto jako volim maske koje se prave od sastojaka koje svi mi imamo u kuhinji, jedva sam čekala ovu da probam. U pitanju je prava kućna radinost! Ova maska je pogodna za normalnu/mešovitu kožu kakva je moja.

Sastojci su sledeći:

  • kašičica sode bikarbone
  • kašičica meda 

Pomešate ove sastojke i smesu nanesete na kožu lica. Ako vam deluje da je smesa isuviše gusta, dodajte malo vode. Ostavite da deluje nekih desetak minuta i nakon toga isperete mlakom vodom. U slučaju da vam maska malo curi sa lica, obucite neku staru majicu ili postavite oko vrata neku vrstu zaštite u vidu starog peškira ili krpe, a svakako ćete to posle oprati.

Moje iskustvo je da je koža ispiligovana zahvaljujući sodi bikarboni, nežna i mekana, dok med sa svojim antibakterijskim dejstvom služi kao prirodni čistač koji koži vraća sjaj. Jedva čekam da čujem kakvo je vaše iskustvo sa ovom maskom. Unapred se radujem vašim komentarima!!

Since I am fond of masks made of ingredients available in the kitchen, I couldn’t wait to try this one. This is a real home made craft! This mask is suitable for normal/combination skin such mine is.

Ingredients are the following:

  • a teaspoon of sodium bicarbonate
  • a teaspoon of honey     

Mix these ingredients and apply the mixture to your face. If it seems to you that it is too thick, add a little bit of water. Leave it on for about 10 minutes and then rinse with lukewarm water. In case the mask starts dripping from your face, wear an old T-shirt or put some kind of protection around your neck, such as an old towel or cloth and surely you’ll wash this afterwards. 

My experience is that skin is left peeled off dead skin cells thanks to sodium bicarbonate, soft and tender while honey with its antibacterial effects serves as a natural cleanser which brings back glow to the skin. I can’t wait to hear what’s your experience with this mask! I’m looking forward to your comments below!!

Spasavanje od Nikolasa Sparksa/The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks

By on May 13, 2018

Recenzija knjige

Spasavanje od Nikolasa Sparksa

Spasavanje je još jedan roman iz pera majstora ljubavne drame. Ova knjiga je mnogo više od ljubavi izmedju muškarca i žene. Ova knjiga govori o najvećoj mogućoj ljubavi, onoj bezuslovnoj. Ljubavi majke prema svom detetu. Malo je reći da je ova knjiga spasila samog pisca. Svu muku koju je Nikolas preživeo i proživeo sa svojim sinom Rajanom, koji je imao ogromne poteškoće u govoru, pretočio je u priču o majci koja se bori sa istim problemom. Deniz, glavni lik u ovom romanu, ima sina sa kojim svakodnevno satima radi kako bi mu pomogla u govoru, kako bi on lakše sklapao rečenice i išao u korak sa svojim vršnjacima. Kroz tu borbu je prožeta i ljubavna priča koja se razvija izmedju Deniz i vatrogasca Tejlora. Dok je sa jedne strane stavljen akcenat na Denizinu borbu da pomogne svom sinu, sa druge strane je Tejlor koji se bori sa svojim demonima. Tejlor je taj koji treba da shvati da tek kada prihvatimo sami sebe, prihvatiće nas i drugi onakvima kakvi jesmo i živećemo pravu ljubav. A, ta prava ljubav leči sve, svaki bol, svaki ožiljak iz prošlosti, svu tugu. Zar ovo nije divna životna spoznaja?!

P.S Ako ste ljubitelj ljubavnih i porodičnih drama, ovo delo nemojte propustiti! Teško je pisati o ljubavi na uzvišen i mudar način, a Nikolas Sparks čini da to izgleda tako lako!

Book Review

The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks

The Rescue is another novel written by the master of love drama. This book is more than a love story of a man and woman. This book is about the biggest love of all, the unconditional one. Love of a mother for her child. It’s not enough to say that this book rescued the writer himself. All the trouble that Nicholas survived and experienced with his son Ryan, who had enormous difficulties in speech, was poured into a story about a mother who is fighting the same battle. Denise, main character in this novel, has a son who she needs to work with for hours every day in order to help him speak more easily, make sentences and keep up with his peers. This fight is intertwined with a love story developing between Denise and a firefighter Taylor. On the one hand, the emphasis is on Denise’s struggle to raise her son and on the other hand, there is Taylor who is trying to beat his own demons. Taylor is the one who needs to realize that once we’ve accepted ourselves, other people will do the same and we’ll be able to feel true love.True love heals everything, every pain, every scar from the past, all the sadness. Isn’t this an amazing life cognition?

P.S. If you are a fan of love and family stories, don’t miss this one! It is difficult to write about love meaningfully and wisely, and Nicholas Sparks makes it seem so easy!

Peep Toe Suede Zipper Wedge Heel Sandals
Metal Cap Toe Black Stiletto Heels Metallic Shoes

Ovog leta planiram da svoj garderober dopunim što veselijim i ludjim komadima. Nešto me vuče ka prugastim, tufnastim i floralnim motivima. Trebalo mi je dosta vremena da naučim da kupujem stvari u veselijim bojama. Nekako sam se uvek odlučivala za monohromatske odevne kombinacije smirenijih boja.

Možda je dolazak proleća doneo i nove odluke i želju za promenama.

Tbdress sajt je sajt sa koga sam već kupovala i imala dobro iskustvo sa njima.

Šta se nalazi na mojoj listi želja pogledajte u nastavku i iskoristite kupone koje nude  (na dnu posta).

This summer I plan to add as cheerful and as crazy as possible items to my wardrobe. I am somehow drawn to stripes, dots and floral motives. It took me a while to learn to buy stuff in more lively colours. I used to choose monochromatic combinations of serene colours.

Maybe the arrival of spring brought new decisions and wish to make changes.

Najbolja tri ženska parfema za proleće 2018

By on April 16, 2018

1. Parfem koji sa razlogom zaslužuje prvo mesto na ovoj listi je Chanel Coco Mademoiselle edp. Ovo je najprodavaniji ženski parfem u poslednjih 10 godina. Spada u klasu orijentalno cvetnih mirisa. Na vrhu mirisne piramide nalaze se bergamot i pomorandža, što mu daje svežinu. U srcu su ilang-ilang, jasmin i mimoza, a u bazi vanila, beli mošus, tonka, pačuli, vetiver i opopanaks. Kreirao ga je parfimer Žak Polž 2001. On je pravi izbor za poslovne prilike. Elegantan je i otmen. Imajući u vidu da kuća Chanel jako pažljivo bira sastojke i vodi računa o performansama, ova gospodjica zaslužuje čistu desetku jer je jako teško postići dugotrajnost ako parfem u sebi sadrži spoj belog cveća i citrusa, a on je upravo takav – svež i dugotrajan. Pritom, miriše na čisto.

Photo credit: Pinterest

2. Na drugom mestu je još jedan sveti gral medju parfemima – La Vie Est Belle edp, Lancome. Kada se tek pojavio na tržištu  izazvao je erupciju emocija. Neki ga mrze, neki obožavaju. Prosto, prema ovom čudu ne možete biti ravnodušni. Pripada cvetno voćno gurmanskoj grupi. Pojavio se na jesen 2012. Ovaj elegantan slatkiš je kreirao fenomenalan parfemski trio: Olivije Polž, Dominik Ropion i Ana Flipo. U gornjim notama se nalaze kruška i crna ribizla, u sredini cvet narandže, jasmin i iris, a slatkoću obezbedjuju praline, vanila, tonka i pačuli. Sa ovim parfemom ne možete proći nezapaženo. Jako dugo ostaje na koži i ima odličnu auru. Ovde bih citarala jednog parfemoljupca koji kaže da ‘ovaj parfem ima monstruozne performanse jer traje od jutra do sutra i u stanju je da u roku od dve sekunde ispuni prostoriju’. I ja se slažem sa ovom konstatacijom i zato preporučujem da ga treba pažljivo dozirati – jedan, dva šprica maksimalno ukoliko ne želite gore pomenuti efekat. Kampanja u kojoj je glavom i bradom čuvena Džulija Roberts, kao i samo ime parfema, poručuju da na život treba gledati sa vedrije strane i stvarati svoju viziju sreće, ma kakvagod ona bila.

3. Poslednji, ali ne i manje važan je Ever Bloom edp, Shiseido. Ovaj cvetni parfem je stvoren u oktobru 2015. Kao inspiracija za njegov nastanak poslužila je crno bela fotografija kamelije koju je snimio sin osnivača ove kuće Šinco Fukuhara. Parfimer je Orelijan Gišard koji je sa velikim uspehom iskoristio kompoziciju belog cveća i mošusa kako bi napravio čisto cvetni miris. U vrhu se nalaze jasmin, bugarska ruža i lotos, u srednjim notama gardenija, cvet narandže i molekul silkolid, a u dnu mošus i drvo hinoki. Miris je jako ženstven, poletan, cvetan, prozračan. On je svež, ali u isto vreme i senzualan. Snažan, a opet nežan. Nosiv je i prikladan kako za posao tako i za izlazak na kafu. Kao i u prethodna dva slučaja, postojan je i svojim odlikama opravdava cenu. Bez preterivanja, ovako za mene miriše ljubav.

Dragi čitaoci, uronite u čudesan svet parfema. Mnogo toga zanimljivog vas tu čeka. 

Koji je vaš omiljeni parfem i zbog čega? Pišite u komentarima.

Top Three Female Perfumes for Spring 2018

1. Perfume which undoubtedly deserves the first place on this list is Chanel Coco Mademoiselle edp. It has been the best-seller for the past 10 years. It falls into the oriental-floral category. At the top of fragrance pyramid there are bergamot and orange, which give it freshness. Heart notes are ylang-ylang, jasmine and mimosa and the base is made of vanilla, white musk, tonka beans , patchouli, vetyver and opopanax. It was created in 2001 by the perfumer Jacques Polge. It is an excellent choice for the office. It is elegant and lady-like. Having in mind that the house of Chanel is very careful when it comes selecting ingredients and perfume performances, this Miss deserves to pass with flying colours because it is very difficult to accomplish longevity if a perfume contains a combination of white flowers and citruses, and this perfume does exactly that – it is fresh and long-lasting. Also, it smells clean.

2. The second place is taken by another holy grail among perfumes – La Vie Est Belle edp, Lancome. When it appeared at the market, it caused the eruption of emotions. Some hate it, some adore it. Simply, you can’t be indifferent to this miracle. It belongs to floral fruity gourmand group. It appeared in autumn of 2012. This elegant sweet was created by a phenomenal trio of perfumers: Olivier Polge, Dominique Ropion and Anne Flipo. Top notes include pear and black current, flower of orange, jasmine and iris can be found in the middle and sweetness is provided by pralines, vanilla, tonka beans and patchouli. You can’t go unnoticed with this perfume. It stays on skin very long and has an excellent aura. Here I would quote the words of a certain perfume lover who says that ‘this perfume has monstrous performances because it lasts unbelievably long and is able to fill the room within two seconds’. I also agree with this statement and that’s why I recommend that it should be dosed with care – one, two sprays at most unless you wish to provoke the above mentioned effect. Campaign depicting the Julia Roberts and the very name of the perfume tell us that we should look at the bright side of life and make our own vision of happiness, whatever it may be.

3.Last, but not least is Ever Bloom edp, Shiseido. This floral perfume was made in October 2015. Black and white photo of camellia, taken by the son of this house founder – Shinzo Fukuhara, served as the inspiration. Perfumer is Aurelien Guichard who successfully used the composition of white flowers and musk in order to make purely floral fragrance. Jasmine, Bulgarian rose and lotus are at the top, in the middle there are the flower of orange and molecule silkolyde and the base is made of musk and tree hinoki. Perfume is extremely feminine, dashing, floral, airy. It is fresh, but at the same time sensual. Powerful, but again gentle. It is wearable and as suitable for work as it is for going out for a coffee. As in two previous cases, it is long-lasting and justifies its price. Without exaggeration, this is how love smells to me.

Dear readers, dive into the wonderful world of perfumes. So many interesting things wait for you there.

Uncooked Rice Pudding with Bananas

By on April 1, 2018

                                                                               

                             Nekuvan sutlijaš s bananama

Sastojci:

100 g pirinča (potopiti u vodu i ostaviti preko noći)

3 banane

sok od 1/2 limuna

1 kašika meda

1 prstohvat cimeta

banana (ili maline) za dekoraciju

Priprema:

Pirinač ocedite, pa ga sameljite u blenderu ili na mašini za meso. Dodajte izgnječene banane i ostale sastojke. Ukrasite bananama ili malinama.

Uživajte!

NB: Za sve one koje brine činjenica da se pirinač u ovom slučaju ne kuva, želim da napomenem da je ovde u pitanju jako mala količina i da nema apsolutno nikakve bojazni da vam se nešto loše može desiti. Upravo sam ja živi primer jer sam ovaj slatkiš sa slike i pravila i pojela.   Uzgred, svi smo već čuli za čuvenu dijetu sa sirovim pirinčem, kao što nam je poznata i činjenica da je pirinač odličan čistač creva, izuzetno je zdrav, hranljiv i važan izvor proteina i kompleksnih ugljenih hidrata.  

                                                                          

 

Following ingredients are needed: 

100 g of rice (soaked in water during the night)

3 bananas

 juice made of 1/2 lemon

1 spoon of honey

a pinch of cinnamon

banana or raspberries for decoration

Preparation

Drain rice, then grind it in a blender or meat cutter machine. Add pressed bananas and the rest of ingredients. Decorate with bananas or raspberries.  

 

Enjoy!

NB: For those of you who are worried that in this case rice isn’t cooked, I wish to say that here we’re using a quite small quantity of rice and there is absolutely no fear that something bad might happen to you. I am a living example because I made and ate this sweet that you see on the photo. Also, we have all heard of the famous diet involving raw rice, and we are familiar with the fact that rice is an excellent bowel cleaner, it is extremely nutritious and an important source of proteins and complex carbohydrates.

Robovi žudnje/Slaves of Lust by Eli Gilić

By on March 25, 2018

Recenzija knjige

Robovi žudnje od Eli Gilić

Moj prvi dodir sa erotskom književnošću i evo, moja čula su probudjena. Ova knjiga predstavlja poznate pisce, kompozitore, slikare, pesnike u jednom potpuno novom svetlu. Oni su prikazani kao ljudi od krvi i mesa sa izraženim seksualnim porivima. Moja osećanja tokom čitanja su se kretala od šoka, ponekad čak i stida zbog eksplicitnosti scena seksa, zaintrigiranosti, gadjenja do naslade. Genijalna je ideja oživeti likove iz dela i dati im osobine običnih ljudi. Jako sam se zabavljala pričom o Romeu i Juliji i time šta se desilo sa Anom Karenjinom posle samoubistva. Hamlet i Ofelija su me dirnuli svojom željom da pobegnu od pisca kontrolora i započnu zivot samostalno, a da su pritom ugrabili te poslednje trenutke slobode kako bi otkrili čari telesne ljubavi.
Izgleda kao da je gotovo svaka erotska fantazija koju bi čovek mogao da ima dospela u pero spisateljice! Ovo je knjiga koja uzdrmava čula i budi kreativnu energiju.

Book Review

Slaves of Lust by Eli Gilić

This has been my first encounter with erotic literature and it led to the awakening of my senses. This book represents famous writers, composers, painters, poets in a completely new light. They are shown as people made of flesh and blood with emphasized sexual desire. While reading the book my emotions went from shock, sometimes even embarrassment due to explicitness of sexual scenes, pure interest, disgust, up to pleasure. The idea to revive characters from works of art and give them traits of ordinary people is simply ingenious. I had so much fun reading the story about Romeo and Juliet and what happened to Anna Karenina after she committed suicide. Hamlet and Ophelia touched me deeply with their wish to run away from the author-controller and start their life independently while using their last moments of freedom to discover the magic of physical love. It seems that almost every erotic fantasy, which a person could have, has got into the writer’s pen! This is the book which wakes up senses and boosts creative energy.

Miraculous Health and Beauty Elixir

By on March 18, 2018

Čudesni eliksir zdravlja i lepote

Potrebni su sledeći sastojci:

jedan zreo grejpfrut

kašičica meda

Ako je moguće, ohladite grejpfrut u frižideru, pa ga onda isecite na pola i kašikom izvadite pulpu. Ukoliko ne možete da čekate da se grejpfrut ohladi, možete ga odmah iseći.
Pulpu grejpfruta i med stavite u blender i izmešajte dok se masa ne izjednači. Gotovo!

Ovaj čudesni eliksir sadrži veoma korisne elemente:

Pektin, koji doprinosi efikasnom izlučivanju viška holesterola, smanjuje nivo insulina u krvi i normalizuje metabolizam. Prema istraživanjima, ako jedete jedan grejpfrut dnevno, smanjićete nivo holesterola za 15,5%, a trigliceride za čak 27%.

Likopen, koji je dobar u borbi protiv toksina i štetnih materija u organizmu.

Nekoliko gutljaja ovog eliksira posle ručka (sačekajte nekih dvadesetak minuta) i ovaj eliksir će sagoreti gotovo polovinu kalorija koje ste uneli tokom obroka.

 

Following ingredients are needed:

– a big ripe grapefruit
– a teaspoon of honey

It would be the best to cool the grapefruit in the fridge for some time. If you don’t want to wait, it’s OK not to do this and slice it in half right away. Take a spoon and scoop the pulp from the fruit.
Put the pulp and honey in a blender and mix it till it becomes even. It’s done!!!

This miraculous elixir contains some very useful elements:

– Pectin, which contributes to the efficient excretion of the cholesterol surplus, reduces the level of insulin in the blood and normalizes metabolism. According to research, if one eats a grapefruit a day, bad cholesterol will be reduced by 15.5% and triglycerides by even 27%.
– Lycopene, which is really good at fighting toxins and harmful substances in the body.

About 20 minutes after lunch, take several sips of this elixir and you’ll burn almost a half of the calories taken in during lunch.
