Owl Themed Baby Shower

Hey there! Long time no see:o) You would not believe how busy I have been these past few weeks. Ever since school let out, we have literally had almost every day filled with something to do or somewhere to go. I am exhausted just thinking about it:o) That has left little to no time to do any crafting...I have been so busy that I haven't even desired to do anything crafty...crazy, right?
So anyway, some of you know that I am in the local homemakers club, and we had our monthly meeting at our house last night. One of our members is expecting a baby in August, so we also had a baby shower..you know me..I jumped at the chance to have a special party:o)
The mommy-to-be is decorating her nursery in owls, and as we all know, owls are VERY popular right now, so there were a slew of ideas online to choose from.
Below is a picture of our food table.
The grandmother-to-be made this whimsical center piece...I LOVE hydrangeas:o)
 She also made this cute little fruit baby buggy..she said she found it on Pinterest.
I had some large old blue mason jars, and I filled them as full as I could with flowers. 
 This was one of my favorites of the shower...owl cupcakes:o) They were super easy to make, and would be great for any time of year. I used chocolate cupcakes with chocolate icing. The eyes are made from 2 Oreo cookies & Reese's pieces for the pupils and beak. The platters are just slices of a walnut tree trunk that I borrowed from a good friend.
 The gift table
 My first attempt at a diaper cake...not too shabby..;o)
When the ladies left, they got to take home one of these goody bags filled with chocolate and mints.


We had a wonderful time and the mommy-to-be left with tons of great gifts:o)

Where I found my goodies:
Large White paper lanterns: Oriental Trading Company
Flowers: Costco
Owl on Diaper Cake: Hobby Lobby

Yesterday, my blogger girls and I were at a reception at the beautiful residence of British embassy. Our hosts for that night were her Majesty`s Ambassador Michael Davenport and Elle (Serbia issue) magazine. For the first time the whole issue of Elle is dedicated to one country - Great Britain. We also had chance to see the premier of "I married a Serb" movie (author and director: Anberin Pasha) , which is a story about five women from Britain, who where married for love and moved to Serbia. Very touching story with a great dose of British sense of humor.
More than great evening, that`s for sure, thanks to Elle&British embassy!

I was wearing a gorgeous Software dress (from our famous designer Dragana Ognjenovic -you can see the green version from the runway here) which is a part of her new collection for this summer! Matched with silver high heels, little bit of jewelry and lightly picked up hair, i was ready in a snap! ;)
Hope you will like it!

Sometimes i have those silly ideas, that you will feel better in the summer if you  wear light pants and loose shirt, and guess what? I was wrong! This is not an island, there is no wind, i can`t see beautiful sea and my yacht is nowhere. So i will stick to my shorts and mini dresses, `till this hot weather treats us with some nice rain! ;)
Despite the temperature i spent lovely day with Branislava, Jelena and Jovana, by the river and we survived somehow!
Huge thanks to Branislava for  making these, more than perfect photos, we got that Italian vibe! ;)
Can`t wait to hear your opinion!

Enjoy, it`s Friday! ;)

 p.s. press and play  ....

 In one of the previous posts, i showed you a sneak peek of my new watches, which i got thanks to the lovely people from Urban watch (you can find them here) and i immediately start thinking how can i combine these two beautiful colors. This is what i`am up to at the end. Totally Isabel Marant inspired look, short leather boots on a bare legs, with tiny pink shorts and floral loose shirt, and a little bit of accessories. Messy hair. End of story.
Tell me, tell me, tell me, what do you think about it?

Happy 1st day of summer! ;)

p.s. top three tracks from the Isabel Marant SS/2011 runway, to get in that 80`s  groove, play it:  1 / 2 / 3 ! ;)

Cool me down ...

                                                                                              CLICK TO SEE MORE










                                                                                              ph. via my Pinterest boards, here and here


Okay, these days i`m only thinking how to cool myself down, so i created two new boards on my Pinterest profile, and they are like a real summer survival kit for me!
Here are the top five things to do in a hot week:
1. make yourself some cool refreshment, ice cold lemonade, frozen pops, ice cream, or cocktail on a stick,
2. watch the "New girl" on repeat, till` the new episodes in September, imagine the kiss of Jess and Nick,
3. record the video on your parking lot, while you dancing like This, but be careful, you don`t want to find yourself on the concrete, cause you are drunk from those cocktails above,
4. wash your feet, we all know how can they become smelly from the ballet flats, oh us women, someone said ones that we are worst than men,
5. wear a pink lipstick or do whatever you like.

And if you are bored, you can always make a fashion blog! ;) Just kidding!

Have a nice day!
