Editor's Letter: December

Make your life incredibly magical and amazing.
You can do it.

It's hard to translate all the things I've been feeling and experiencing lately because, mostly, it's just too damn overwhelming. And I mean that in the most positive and awesome way.

When December the 1st arrived, I literally had no idea about it because I've been awake for more than 30 hours straight and I've lost the track of time. We've filmed the Christmas and New Year's episodes weeks ago and I completely forgot that the real Christmas spirit is right around the corner. Because this year I'm gonna miss it and for the first time ever I have no regrets about it.

The only thing I regret is not having more time for my blog, but I'm sure you guys understand. And I hate the fact that I can't tell you anything about the project already because I have so many photos and stories from behind the scenes that I'm dying to share but not yet...not yet.

But very soon.
I promise.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about creating your perfect life. And by perfect I mean flawless by your own standards. It has taken me such a long time to get here but I've never been happier. I'm feeling so emotional I can't even talk about it. I don't know how to write about it because at times it all feels so unreal.

But it's damn real and it feels so good.
So much love.
So much happiness.
So much joy.

If someone had told me that my life is gonna turn upside-down in such a short time, I wouldn't have believed it. It would seem like a joke.

But sometimes we tend to forget important details - things didn't actually happen over night. All of this is a mixture of long and hard work, failing and trying, loving and caring, talking, feeling things, writing, travelling, saying yes and saying no, learning about who I was and who I wanted to be...and even though this feels like a sudden change, deep down I know it isn't.

So in the spirit of Christmas and slowly approaching New Year, I'm asking you to take a good look at yourselves. Ask some questions and don't be afraid of answers. Dig deeper and be disgustingly honest. What do you want, what is it that you truly want? What kind of life you wish to have?

Be honest, guys.
There were times when I managed to convince myself that I wanted to stay in one place, walk my dog around and be happy with some teeny tiny adventures. Bollocks. I never truly wanted that and when I finally decided to let go of all fears and boundaries I've set up in my head, everything started to fall in the right place.

Sure, it's bloody scary.
But I'm begging you don't be too afraid to try.
Because you'll be positively surprised.
And you're gonna enjoy every little second of your life.
How brilliant is that?

Happy December, dear people and do your best to make it a month to remember.




  1. Can't wait to hear all about it, of course everyone understands why you haven't written about it yet - you are so busy! I'm so glad you've got what you wanted and are so happy :)
    Amy xx

    1. Aww thanks a lot, Amy! I'm sure I'll be able to spill it all out in a few days, can't wait! xx

  2. Prekrasno receno! Sreca se zapravo uvijek gradi, ona ne pada s neba, taj neku uspjeh je (kako je rekao jedan talijanski pisac) kada radimo ono za sto smo stvoreni, ono sto bi trebali, a nije to neka izvanska potvrda ili pljesak. Savrseni zivot prema vlastitim standardima je nesto sto svi mozemo imati ako se usudimo pitati sebe prava pitanja i traziti odgovore na njih. Fenomenalan clanak :-)

    1. Puno ti hvala, draga moja! Divno si ovo i sama rekla, u potpunosti se slažem! :)

  3. Oh, I am so happy for you right now lovely. Your joy overwhelmingly pours through your words, and makes a perfect life seem like a reality. Cheers to living your dreams!


    1. Aww thank you so much for these kind words, Erika, this means so much to me! Cheers to an amazing December! xx

  4. Eto, ja ostala speechless... Rekla si sve sto "znam" ali i sve ono sto sam trebala negdje procitati bas sad u ovom trenutku. Puno ti hvala i presretna sam za tebe draga, zasluzujes sve najbolje, najmagicnije i najvise od zivota. Znas kako kazu; the moment you let go of stuff, the moment you stop fearing things and life that you want happening to you, is the moment when everything falls into place and everything you've been only dreaming about starts happening to you. :)

  5. Kao prvo, drago mi je što si ipak našla koji trenutak za blog. Nedostajala si! Ali isto tako znam da imaš važnije stvari i najiskrenije mi je mnogo drago što je tako i što si toliko srećna! :) Ta tvoja energija i zadovoljstvo kojim odišeš su i više nego zarazni. Potpuno si u pravu kad kažeš da iako izgleda da nam se nekad život promeni u toku noći, zapravo je ta "sreća" posledica svih sitnica, odvažnosti, malih i velikih pobeda, pa i padova sa kojima smo se susretali negde usput. Samo napred i grabi sve što ti život pruža! Ne stremeti ka savršenom životu po našim vlastitim pravilima je nešto što ne sme da se dozvoli jer u suprotnom, čemu sve? ;) <3 <3


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments :)
