On Instagram lately


Hey there, you wonderful people! 

It's + 30 degrees here in Rijeka and, if you're asking me, there's nothing romantic about Summer at the moment. It's too hot to think or work properly, taking pictures outdoors is a big ha-ha-ha and the only thing I'm wishing for is to be teleported to Hvar or Brač or Vis (aka the islands) so that I can spend the entire day on the beach, in deep shade. No matter how much love I have for Rijeka, summer in the city simply SUCKS - even if that city is located by the sea. Gimme island life, pleeeease!


So today we're keeping things light here on Smile, Snap, Sparkle which means - let's go through some of my favourite Instagram moments lately and discuss how Summer looks divine on pictures while in reality you're sweating like a pig, holding on to a bottle of water like it's a freaking Holy Grail and trying not to faint while waiting for an ice - cream. But we still love it, right? RIIIGHT? 


Yesterday I wrote on Instagram how I've decided to make this week a lazy one because I need a teeny tiny break (not from blogging, but from everything else) after a crazy month or so. It feels kinda weird because my last couple of days have been so insanely unproductive which is something I'm not used to but at the same time I feel pretty great about it. 

Sometimes you need to take a step back, hit the pause button and disconnect from everything in order to recharge your batteries and fully relax. My break ends of Sunday but until then the only things on my mind will be books, films, tv shows, cold drinks, pasta, ice-cream, long walks late at night and obviously the beach.


What's your relationship with Summer and heat-waves like? How are you handling it so far?

  2. Potpuno te razumem. Svima nam treba pauza, a naročito po vrućini. Ja baš ne mogu da dignem sve 4 u vis ali nekako se trudim da ignorišem sve što baš ne mora da se reši odmah i sada :p Jeste, nema bez ostrva mada kao neko ko je proveo većinu života u kontinentalnom delu, ne bunim se ja ni protiv leta u gradu, makar u ovom mom gradu :D Uživaj! :*

  4. Haha yes summer is so Instagrammable but I'm also sweating buckets behind the camera! It's so hot in England at the moment so I can't imagine how hot it is in Croatia! I don't actually mind it if I'm able to just chill out but because I've been at work I feel like the nice weather is wasted! And it's definitely a good thing you gave yourself some time out, everyone needs that sometimes!

  6. Dok sam bila mladja, leto mi je bilo omiljeno godisnje doba, ali vec neko vreme nije tako, upravo zbog vrucina koje me sprecavaju da uradim mnoge stvari.
    Bas si me nasmejala ovim postom (mislim na deo sa Svetim gralom) :))

  11. ja sam svoju pauzu obavila....tjedan dana na Hvaru kod bake čuda čini:)
    znam što misliš kada kažeš da nam svima treba pauza nekad i posve se slažem... a ljeti je stvarno ponekad previše vruće za razmišljati...treba se opustiti...i polako:)
