Vacation vlog – Island of Krk, Croatia

It took me a century to finish this but it’s finally here. The little vacation vlog I promised from my vacation on the island of Krk is here. I didn’t think it would be quite as long as it turned out but I hope you will enjoy it and that this could be a fun new thing we do on the blog from now on since I am obviously lacking creativity in writing… but I promise that I am working on it!

Sending love and positive vibes,

Rain, rain, go away

Hello everyone! 

You know when it’s such a beautiful sunny day, the summer is in the air. You put on a summer outfit, jacket not needed and head to work. And after killing yourself for 8 hours you look outside the window and realize that someone pissed off Zeus during the afternoon or that the nature is casually trying to wash COVID away with a storm.  

I came home so wet that I had to drain the water out of my shirt when I took it off. By the way that shirt was light blue, now it’s dark blue.

Also while I was taking my romantic after-work walk in the rain that shirt was so stuck to me that it felt like a second layer of skin.. I hate rain and I also hate carrying an umbrella around, I am not Rihanna. 

Anyways, I am going to enjoy my Noodles now, I deserved them. 

Have a lovely day/evening 
Sending love and positive vibes,

Summer Vacation – Island of Krk, Croatia

Hello everyone!

My vacation has ended yesterday and on Monday I am going back to work. It has really been a wonderful few days, I also celebrated my birthday yesterday. It was so hard to leave Punat after days of sunbathing, swimming, eating out in restaurants and chilling.

I will begin working on the videos I took during the vacation this weekend but since I am very much new at this, it will probably take me some time to make a nice video for you to show what the island of Krk is like and to show you what the Croatian seaside looks like. Also, I am not a pro at this so the videos didn’t come off perfect or as I imagined they would but I will do my best to edit them well.

If you follow me on Instagram @luna.theblog you probably saw a lot of my stories and some pics I posted of the vacation. You can also check out the IG stories about the vacation in my highlights under Punat/2020.

I will just share a few photos from the vacation here. I was making a lot of videos so I didn’t take a lot of photos but I have some!

So, I love the traditional Mediterranean architecture and on our seaside we have plenty of examples. Just look how pretty this is! Croatia seaside cities are often compared to Italian cities by tourists, I heard this comparison a lot while working as a waitress during summer.

We also visited the small island of Kosljun which is the home of  a Franciscan monastery and also a nature reserve.  

The city Vrbnik just stole my heart. It is wonderful and I cannot believe that I haven’t heard about it before. I took a lot of videos of it so I have less pics but I have these two. The view of the sea is beautiful and I also had my birthday lunch there which I will show you later on. We actually came to Vrbnik on Wednesday and then we drove back there on Tuesday for my B-day lunch because we just loved this little city.  

I just had to throw this in. We were in the city of Krk and while we were walking around town there was a woman trying to catch a baby owl which fell out of its nest. The owl didn’t know how to fly well yet but she flew a bit and landed right on by boyfriends’ pocket. That little thing you see on the pocket of his pants is a baby owl. There were like three people trying to catch the owl and return her to her nest because the street was really close and she could’ve been hit by a car. We couldn’t stay for long enough to see if they returned her to safety but I do believe they did because they managed to catch her once.  

 Oprna beach is the most beautiful beach we visited. It is a bit hard to access, you’ll see it in the vlog video and you can also see there’s a hill behind me and we descended down a hill to get to this beach. I was a bit scared to film the walk down to the beach because I was scared of slipping and falling down but both of us got down to the beach and climbed up successfully. It was so pretty! 

And these are some pics from my birthday. I didn’t take a lot of videos during this day because it was out last day on vacation and we were just enjoying. The first pic of the food is the lunch we had in Vrbnik. If you come to Croatia, you have to try our Prosciutto and cheese, especially cheese from Pag. We had the dinner in Punat and it was delicious. He had some gnocchi and I had black cuttlefish risotto. My pretty little gift was this watch that he gave me when we went to Krk because I couldn’t wait to open up my present.  

And now I am home and I have to accept the fact that my office is not the beach and slowly come back to reality. But I am very grateful to have a job in this situation and to have had a chance to take a few days to visit Krk and relax. I hope you are all having a lovely day and stay tuned for the vlog. I will try to put it up as soon as possible.

Sending love and positive vibes,

Luna

Weekend pancakes

Good morning guys and happy weekend!

Today is my work Saturday but I woke up feeling all types of happy for no apparent reason. I was also inspired to make this fitness friendly Saturday breakfast which includes pancakes.

I already told you that I am struggling to stay healthy and active during quarantine and I successfully turned it into my daily habit. I don’t skip my workouts and I try to eat a healthy and balanced diet. It is really paying off since I have been feeling much better and am able to cope with this current situation with a positive attitude.

My shift starts at noon and after that I will be resting and tomorrow I am going over to my sisters where we are celebrating Mother’s day. I can’t wait for my nephew to give me a proper workout because that child never stops. He is super active and is always running around. The last time I spent the morning with him my tights were killing me because he made me jump with him for hours on his trampoline. Yes, he has a trampoline (long story).

I am really happy about Croatia slowly going out of quarantine. Our bars and restaurants are being opened starting 11/5/ and there are less restrictions. We already know this will probably cause a new surge in the number of ill people, but I think that we will get through this fine because we became much more careful. I just hope people will still practice social distancing and keep themselves safe.

How is the situation in your country and what are your plans for the weekend?

Happy Easter

Hello everyone!

I would first like to wish a Happy Easter to everyone who is celebrating today 😀

Me and my mom have been alone this Easter, not even my sister came by and all in support of social distancing of course. We’ve had a lot of yummy food and I have been having a terrible headache because the weather is changing and I am very sensitive to weather changes.

I took half of the day off from blogging because I just wanted to have this day to literally be lazy and eat and rest my head but I am feeling better now so I wanted to check in with you.

I will be posting for The Poetry Bar regularly from tomorrow again. Also, my Poetry Bar e-mail inbox has been dry lately so feel free to send in some new works, I am looking forward to all of them. The e-mail is poetrybar1@gmail.com

This is it for me today. Have a happy Easter, enjoy it with your family and keep social distancing!

Sending love and positive vibes

A team building lunch

Hello everyone!

In the past few days I have been living my best life foodwise and beerwise. Yesterday I got up in the morning, had to do some shopping and then I met up with my coworkers at Stir Up. We had a brainstorming session and drank some coffee and then we went to have some lunch together and a few beers because we haven’t had any, how should I say, holiday meetup to just have fun and talk a bit.

Yesterday’s outfit looks good on a picture. The scarf and the pants didn’t like each other because everything from the scarf got stuck to the pants and I had to clean them every 10 minutes. But I still love it, especially the jacket!

lunch beer

For lunch I had tortillas because I couldn’t stand the sight of meat and fried food. I had too much junk food in the last few days and this was a better option. We had a great time at lunch and then I spent the day on the blog. I am looking for a new design, new theme for the blog, I want to customize it a bit. Small changes are always welcome.

Just want to remind you that you have until tonight to go and read our first Coffe date with Luna and participate in our gratitude post. I will be publishing all of your lovely comments later tonight.

As for New Years, I have some really special plans. I had some food, beer and movies. I will also be looking stunning in my outfit which is actually my leopard print payama. As you can tell, I do not have some special plans for tonight and I will be chilling at home but do share in the comments what your plans are!

Sending love and positive vibes,
Luna

Beer and more beer

Hello everyone!

I had too much beer last night. You know those nights when you go out to have a beer with your friends and then all of the sudden it’s 2 in the morning and you already stopped counting after the 5th round?

That was my night. But I was a lady while getting tipsy in this outfit.

saturday night outfit

Am I annoying with these random my life and outfit posts? I decided to make more of these but I do need feedback from you guys regarding this decision, I always want to make your stay here at Luna pleasant!

Anyway, back to the post:

I spent the morning in Stirup because we were brainstorming regarding some future business moves and then my nephew came to stay the night with my mom and me. He is at this cute, little phase of childhood when he drives us crazy sometimes but we are dealing with it.

Me and my friend went out pretty early, around 9, because we had so much to catch up on. I really missed her. We had a bunch of beer, some awkward situations with guys thinking they are good at hitting on girls (we all  have these stories). We had a great time and there was a great girl band playing that night. It was something like an acoustic night at Punkt (the place we went to). We also ate something to soak up the beer a bit:

Today I had family over all day. We were at my sister’s house and guys, I am dead. I haven’t slept a lot, I was a bit hungover and I was all over the place today. I think it’s time to embrace my bed and watch an episode of The Umbrella Academy. I just started watching it and I am on the second episode. I really do like the show, did you guys see it (please no spoiler alerts but if it sucks do tell!)

We have our first Coffee date with Luna post up and it’s all about gratitude so make sure to check that out and leave a comment.

Sending love and positive vibes,

Luna

My positive moment was when I visited my family yesterday and made them a lovely dinner for Memorial Day. I made chocolate bread pudding, whipped cream, pork ribs, bbq sauce, potato salad, and tomato basil soup. It was delicious.

I hope you have a great day,
James

Hello world!

Now for you, who are like me and are half asleep at their job and for the rest of you here are some pics of breakfasts. Oh, the days I actually had time and energy to do such a breakfast in the morning. I hope you like it and that they give you inspiration to start you days with some yummy food.

Weekend in Opatija

I realized it’s been a while since I posted something about my life, things I do and so on and, after doing some analysis on my previous posts, it came to my attention that you actually liked those posts, commented a lot so I decided to do one more again.

It won’t be a very elaborate post or contain a lot of pics but there’s a good reason for that. I spent the weekend after Valentines with my boyfriend in Opatija. Opatija is a beautiful city on the Croatian coast, one of the most beautiful to be honest. The weekend was great, we stayed at a nice hotel, went to a nice restaurant, took a long walk along the beach and all of that stuff couples do on Valentines. I don’t have a lot of pictures because my caveman boyfriend hates taking pictures and doesn’t even own any type of social media account. I mean, good for him and his mental health, but bad for me as a blogger. Just kidding, I actually admire him for being so, how should I say, “offline”.

Here are literally the only pics from the weekend I have, some of the were Instagram stories so they will have the location tag or something. Tell me now, have you ever visited Croatia?


And of course, the dress I had on during our night out.
