The challenge: Keeping my blog alive and kicking while being on set for 2 months

Flashback: About a month ago, when I got a call about this tv project I'm working on and its deadlines, the first thing that crossed my mind was (without exaggerating) - oh my gosh, what's gonna happen to my blog? - because I instantly knew that, from the moment I say 'yes' to everything, my free time will stop existing until the series is done.

To make everything even more interesting, along with directing the show I also said I wanted to write a big part of the episodes. Forty, to be exact.

Little things (14)

* Long bubble bath after a crazy exhausting week.

* Seeing my dearest friends after months of being apart.

Weekly notes: Director's Cut

Preproduction phase...

Today feels a bit weird.
Mario and Frida are on their way back to Rijeka and I won't see them again until Christmas, which means I'm all alone in this crazy hometown of mine. Actually, I'm most definitely NOT alone because I'm surrounded by my tv crew and phones are ringing constantly and so many mails need to be answered etc.

It's crazy and I'm loving it.

TV Corner: Younger, Season 3 / Episodes 02 & 03


In between writing a screenplay and packing for a two month long filming, a few days ago I finally managed to catch some free time (I actually said no to Criminal Minds in order to see Younger) to catch up on the last two episodes of my favourite show.

But I must admit (and it hurts me to say this) that I'm not really into this season so far.

Outfit: Leather jacket x Maxi sweater

Sing along with me:
Another head aches, another heart breaks
I am so much older than I can take
And my affection, well it comes and goes
I need direction to perfection no, no, no, no...

My dear friends, it would be an impossible task to write down in just one post every single crazy adventure this Naf Naf leather jacket has seen with me throughout the last deacade. From helping me survive high school to pretending to be way cooler and important than I was at my first Academy to countless rock and punk shows, so many filmings, terrible dates and awesome ones, too many travels...and all that even before this blog was born. 

If there's one piece I cherish more than anything else in my wardrobe, that would be this legendary jacket.

Farfetch - Finding #TheOne

A week ago a thought crossed my mind: in a few days I'll be going away for two months for the filming of a tv series I'm directing and co-writing and I have nothing to wear. 
This might sound funny at first, but let me ensure you it's not. Autumn is in full swing and I can no longer wear my favourite summer pieces and pretend I haven't noticed the change in the seasons. I mean, it's cold guys.

Outfit: So many shades of grey

I just started working on an intense and exciting new project, which means long hours are back on and days tend to fly by even faster than the usual fast. So yesterday afternoon, after being awake and crazy focused since 6.30 in the morning, I realised my head's gonna explode if I don't take my aching little body (from sitting in front of the computer) out for a walk.

I needed a short break from all the phone calls and various screens and above all - I needed my clothes to bring me back to life.

TV Corner: YOUNGER, Season 3 / Episode 01


I was eating my beloved Ritter Sport Praline chocolate and wondering should I move on to the script writing or book reading when my iPhone blinked, showing a message on Instagram from my dearest Ela. She texted me that she's watching YOUNGER, that it's hillarious and that she hopes it's gonna stay that way 'till the end of an episode.

I was like 'WTF? has the new season started and I had no idea?' and the answer was YES, my second favourite show (number one is How to get away with murder) is back on and I'm so freaking excited.

Editor's Letter: October

Pouring rain, hot mint tea with honey, darker days, first smell of the sweater weather, red Dr. Martens boots, interesting books, cosy blanket, lots of shopping.

In other words, this is how October started for me.
