A peaceful escapade

Hello readers,

I decided to catch up on good times this past weekend and visit my best friend in Ottawa. Between the great company and endless giggles, we spent the weekend literally doing everything and NOTHING. 
Our version of a good weekend is to simply relax behind delicious plates, calming walks and all things girly...(we'll never grow old in certain things)

I unfortunately was not accompanied by my amazing Nikon camera but did manage to take a few pictures off my iPhone.
Here is the result of my peaceful escapade in Ottawa (and partially Montreal)...

The First Date

For some unknown reason, when us ladies get asked out on a first date, we tend tohave a nervous breakdown. Whether its the first stomach butterflies or the anticipation of seing your date, something just puts us through a tragic state of mind. Can we all agree that this so called stress might derive from the so called wardrobe dilemma?

Do you suddenly become Carrie Bradshaw and plan out countless amounts of potential outfits that you may or may not wear? Or do you stay true to your first choice?

My affair with a Vintage scent

Once upon a time, a wise woman once said: “A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future.” -Coco C.

When picking out your perfume, it is important to choose one that suits you perfectly. I had an affair with mine for the past four years. Coco Mademoiselle- Chanel. The first time I laid eyes on it and smelled it, I instantly fell in love  (with the sample in my hands). I also followed the ancient myth saying that a perfume best suits you when you can no longer smell it on you. That's when you know...

What's inside?

Hello readers,

I hope everyone's enjoying the great and stable weather we've been having for the past couple of days! Many of you ladies either switch to your Spring (seasonal) handbag or do like me and add color to various ones. What's lovely about Spring and Summer is that you no longer stick to blacks and darks. You can alternate fabrics as you can alternate colors and sizes. Either or, you must fill that accessory with a few goodies. Here's what you'll definitely find in my purse(s) during Spring's mild weather:

Hello dears, 

Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Tell me something: why are weekends always so short? That question is definitely part of my unsolved mysteries. 

I agree that parties and gatherings are really fun, but so is relaxing from time to time. It is important to stay on the low-down every once in while in order to re-organize the little things such as your room, paperwork, clothes, anything really...

I took a break this weekend by rekindling  with the loved ones. Between the cozy and comfortable home settings and the atmosphere of the Old Port of Montreal laid a fabulous weekend that I wish to share with you...

Here are some of my favourite weekend snapshots: (Camera+Instagram)

My heart was left in Croatia

Ever daydream about your summer months ahead of time?
Here's what's on my mind...My homeland, Croatia

I am really looking forward to waking up to the smell of sea, fresh air & have a culinary feast with my loved ones. 
Most of all, I am looking forward to these views...

Spring has Sprung

Hello to all,

Quick post on something I love to call Spring !...
Keep in mind that it's finally time to take that heavy winter coat off your back and put away your winter boots. It's time to play around with colour, prints, fabrics & trends! Take out all your flats and pumps and refresh your memory on the variety of shoes & clothing you have awaiting for you...

What I love most about Spring-Summer & Fall is that there are no limits to wardrobe.

Dress at your comfort & in your own way.

Hello readers,

I had the honour of being one of April's panelist for the Fashion Unfold event on Twitter. Every month, FU creates a debate over a hot fashion topic where you can join and share your opinions on the subject via the #fashionunfold hashtag. Creative director of Fashion[Unfold}, Miss Sly , asked me to put together a quick bio of myself and my blog and to share my thoughts on April's topic...

Times two, please.

Hello readers,

ever fell in love with a top and had the sudden urge to own it in more than one colour?
As boring as it may sound, it's so practical!

A couple of months ago, I challenged myself to trust Ebay's clothing store. I will admit that it's a fabulous website to purchase items that do not require any sizes. Was I ready to take a risk?

The Scented Accessory

Hello readers,

This might come as a shock to you but did you know that certain candle scents can be a good form of stress relief? I've recently received the Eucalyptus Spearmint Candle as a gift and was told that it's a special one. I thought to myself..."what difference will this candle make?" 

A New White

Hello readers,

did you ever step out of your comfort zone? I certainly did a few days ago when I decided to venture into the world of Whites. 

Many of you might have noticed by now that the Black & White trend is rockin' this Spring season. For the first time in my life (without counting my toddler years) I've decide to own white shoes.

Hello to all,

I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Reason why I'm already verbalizing the weekend as the past is due to the horrifying weather we currently have in rainy Montreal. This no longer counts as the weekend...

Besides that, I certainly enjoyed the beautiful sunshine we had this weekend (while it lasted). My sunshine wasn't only up in the sky but the great company I was surrounded with this past weekend. My best friend and I decided to surprise our other best friend two hundred kilometres away. When us girls get really chatty the iPhone conversation "à trois" just isn't enough.
So we decided it was time for a coffee date...In the capital city.

Quick European escapade

Hello readers,

Earlier this week, I was invited to go for a downtown lunch on a fabulous (what I can officially call) Spring day. With the sun trespassing my shades and the usage of my Burberry trench, I felt like it was time to celebrate the beautiful weather. Nothing at the moment sounded better than having a quick European escapade in a fabulous upbeat Portuguese Café: Vasco de Gama.

Eight question marks

Hello readers, 

Over the past few weeks, JKal's Vintage Affair expanded drastically (3 digits following on GFC & over 1,700 followers on Facebook)! I cannot express enough how heart warming that feeling has been and still is.

As the amount of views and likes were expanding, many of my followers approached me and were curious about a few things that led to the community I now have today.

My goal behind the words and pictures I share with you on a weekly basis is to enhance your knowledge on personality. I see Fashion as art, and one can only interpret art on his own. Here are some answers to frequent questions that have been asked:

Highlights of Easter's weekend

Hello to all,

I hope you all enjoyed your 3 or 4 day long weekend! 

I certainly did. 

What I love about long weekends is that I get to see all of the people I love most and cherish every single moment I have with them. As it was Easter weekend, these past few days were strictly dedicated to family and great close friends.
Coming from a European family, I was primarily surrounded with constant various culinary dishes (it was literally one after the other). I'd love to know how can one manage eating three full meals a day (each one counting as five) by squeezing in that delicious sweet bread  your mother has been baking for the last couple of days in between. Did I mention the Easter eggs? Other deserts? I think it's that time of the year where you don't really realize what really gets in your belly because you're mainly focused on the amount of fun you're having. It can typically be compared to impulse shopping when the new seasons hit...Do you agree?

Now that I've put myself in strict detoxication, I can share with you a few highlights of my weekend. Here are some of my favourite shots...
