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,

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,

Vacation mode on

Hello everyone
I am just enjoying this vacation! We arrived yesterday to Punat, walked around, went to the beach and today we are having a breakfast with a nice view and then we are off to a beach that is claimed to be Punat’s most beautiful beach. It’s a bit hard to get there because we have to park the car and then walk to the beach. We are literally wearing sneakers to go there.

Punat beach

I just wanted to check in with you guys. I am keeping my promis and taking videos of everything we visit, see, eat and drink to make a little vlog for you. I already know I will spend days learning how to edit but I am looking forward to this new project

Hope you are all doing well!

Sending love and positive vibes,

Getting ready for Vacation

Hello everyone!

How are you doing? I hope you are well, healthy and happy. The situation with COVID-19 is taking a turn for the worse in Croatia. Zagreb is the epicenter of the illness, masks are becoming mandatory in all public transportation, stores and coffee shops. I can’t wait for the push back because of the last one. If you know anything about the Croatia people, you should know that we have  a coffee drinking culture. There are actual researches that show that the Croatian people are one of the people who spend the most time drinking coffee in coffee shops and bars. I am so interested to see how this will turn out.

I have actually been to a store this morning, buying a present for my sister and there were still people (older people) without a mask and on the entrance of the store there was no sanitizer. I have no words. I can understand that store workers are overworked and that they didn’t manage to refill the bottles or replace them, but I have no excuse for people not wearing a mask. I didn’t wear it until recently, but since the number of cases is spiking, we should all start wearing them and start behaving responsibly..

I went on a whole Corona rant for no reason, but do tell me how is the situation in your country?

I am actually leaving for my vacation tomorrow. I am still cautious and broke enough not to leave the country so I will be visiting the island of Krk in Croatia. I am so excited because I missed the seaside ever since I left Zadar and I am looking forward to relaxing and chilling and getting a tan and everything! I was also considering trying to film a little vacation vlog for you all. I think it would be a good way to connect with you and show you how pretty Croatia is. I have been thinking about creating videos for a while now and since we are approaching 6000 followers, I thought it could be our new thing. Also, if you would like to see more content about the little vacation, you can follow me on Instagram @luna.theblog.

Since this blog is my life at the end of the day, you know my laptop is coming with me. I will not let The Poetry Bar go out of business just because I am on the beach. I will still open every e-mail and post your work. Also, I have a little question for you.  Can you please tell me do you get like a notification every time I post your work, that I placed a link to your page or anything like this? Thank you in advance to The Poetry Bar crew who will let me know in the comments! I am asking because I don’t always have time to write an e-mail back to you and I would hate to have to send a generic template whenever I post your poem.

I will finish this post now, because you know I can talk and talk forever. Stay safe, healthy and happy!

Sending love and positive vibes,

Calling out the rebel in me.

As you can tell I’m trying to implement more fashion posts on to my blog because dressing up is also one of my big loves in life next to poetry of course. So a little bit about my outfit. The shirt is just a plain shirt with a Jameson logo. I actually got it from a Jameson party in my city and also I love me some Jameson every now and then. The shorts are as old as the day is long. They actually belonged to my mom, she used to wear them when she was young and then she gave them to me and I made shorts from them. The brand is Levi’s. The jacket is from Zara. I actually thrift shopped this jacket, as well as the shoes, and I love it because can go with a lot of my outfits. It’s really my style. The bandana was purchased off of Ebay because… it was cheap and I am broke and stylish on a budget hahaha

You know you can check out my daily outfits and typewriter poetry on my Instagram @luna.theblog

Also, you guys I got my first paycheck today and I couldn’t be happier. I worked before and got paychecks before but this one is so special to me because it’s the first time I am doing a job I actually really like and where I can use my knowledge of languages. It just makes me happy.

I don’t want to like be annoying but my Poetry Bar inbox is as empty as my bank account was yesterday so guys you know the drill. The e-mail is poetrybar1@gmail.com

I don’t have a fridge in my room anymore!

In my last outfit post I told you all about the work my mom and me have been doing in our apartment and I told you I had a fridge in my room and a bunch of furniture. Well, it’s gone! Finally!

Things are going to get even messier the next week but this weekend I can actually walk to my bed without jumping over something or attaining random bruises from bumping into 6 pieces of furniture all around my room.

I spend most of the morning working like an idiot because we had to clear all of the trash and old furniture from the apartment. I can’t feel my arms and my legs hurt like hell, but it had to be done. My weekend is lazy and party-free again. Also I am incredibly broke so let me tell you about this shirt I thrift shopped a while ago.

Since I am broke and love clothes I have to thriftshop. I just love this skirt because it really shapes my body well, I think it’s really elegant and can be worn in any occasion. The top is from Stradivarius. I actually always felt like I shouldn’t leave the house in it because it kind of looks like lingerie but who gives a crap. I don’t. I really like the outfit and will be posting more this week so make sure to follow me on Instagram at @luna.theblog.  

OOTD and some update

I was unable to post any outfits on Instagram lately because my room looks like… There’s no words to describe what my room looks like. Me and my mom are redoing the apartment, everything is not where it’s supposed to be and when I say that trust me that I mean that. I have a fridge in my room. A FRIDGE. I  have nothing against midnight snacks but there’s a fridge in my room. I cannot.

We are currently redoing the floors in the kitchen, living room and dining room so we had to move all of the stuff out of those areas. I know you’re thinking that we could’ve just carry everything to the basement but people this is your girl Luna. You can bet your ass I live on the last floor of a building that doesn’t have an elevator. I literally cannot walk through my room because there’s so much furniture in it and that’s why I haven’t posted any outfits. Also, I love to buy clothes, not ashamed to admit that, but currently I am in a financial state where I just pray my paycheck comes on time so I wouldn’t have to start begging on the street. No shame in being broke, we’ve all been through that especially when switching jobs.

Anyways, I think I have nothing else to write down. Have a lovely day and I promise I’ll get active on Instagram as soon as I stop having a fridge in my room.

The red jumpsuit

What’s up my beloved followers? What are you doing this weekend?

I am chilling this Saturday and tomorrow I am going with my mommy to see my grandma and my family. Today I published on IG this outfit that I wore to my friend’s wedding. I fell in love with it when I saw it in a shop and just had to buy it but… I had a little accident during the wedding.

So there I was in my new, red jumpsuit having fun. I got to the dancefloor, the music was great and then all of the sudden I just felt my mother literally grabbing my ass and whispering in my ear that my jumpsuit ripped.

That’s right. The jumpsuit has a very long zip on the back and right underneath my zip and above my ass the jumpsuit ripped. The problem with the hole was that it was just getting bigger. That sounded wrong, but you know what I wanted to say.

I had to leave the wedding and go to my apartment and change clothes. I laughed the whole situation off and still had a blast at the wedding. There you have it, the story about this jumpsuit. And hell yeah, I’m taking it to the tailor to fix all the seams, just in case!

OOTD

I know that my blog completely revolves around writing and poetry but I’ve always kept this category called “My Life” where I wanted to post stuff that happen to me, where I go etc., but I am not really the kind of person to take pics when I am out, having a good time, hanging out with my friends. Currently the only thing I have going on for me is work. I go to work, come home, blog, blog, blog, shower, blog, blog, blog, pass out in bed. That’s my life for the past… for a while now but I still wanted to keep this category alive until I get out there and get a life so here’s an outfit I posted today. I wore it nowhere because I can’t come dressed like this to work and I think it would be uncomfortable to sleep in it. I am just being embarrassingly honest in this post. I have no life. Can someone relate so I don’t feel alone in this all hustle and grind lifestyle?
