Couple of days ago I had a chance to try Organic Press juices. 3 days with 6 bottles per day, not taking any food or any drinks other than these super-delicious juices. It helped me cleaning the whole body and also being proud of myself for both reasons - accepting this challenge and coming to an end. Without cheating! I even said no to chewing gums because I didn't want to fool myself, I wanted to play fair, so I was just drinking Organic Press juices one after another, in order. And if you think I was starving all the time, you have to believe that it's not true. I didn't feel any hunger until the second day in the evening, but luckily it wasn't unbearable. Let's say it was proportional to the hunger after 5 hours without breakfast.

They say that these juices give you enough energy so that you can get through the day easily without any problems, and now I can totally agree with that. The only things was that I was feeling tired around 9pm every night, but I actually liked it, since I am someone who doesn't go to sleep until the early morning the next day. So, instead of taking sleeping pills in order to fall asleep, I was taking organic juices, living super-healthy, for 3 days how much my program lasted for.

Before I started with my detox program, I was warned about possible headaches. And they appeared, accompanied with feel of warmth. Anyway, it was so mild that it couldn't disturb my daily activities. Of course I had to stop working out, because it's not recommended during this cleanse program. But running at the beach or in Marina I swapped with running to the toilet, which is normal according to the quantity of liquid I put in my body.

Things I was missing the most were obligations to eat, to prepare some food or even to sit in a restaurant and with pleasure search through a menu, like a big gourmand. Because of those obligations that I didn't have, my days were long and empty. I had to say no to dinner with friends, night out with girlfriends and no to a birthday cake my colleague brought at work. But I was feeling really healthy and happy, almost like I have a power to fly.

Lot of people think I accepted this challenge in order to loose weight. I have to admit that it was the last thing that came on my mind. I decided to start with detox mostly to clean my body, but also to try these juices and see the difference between Organic Press Juices and ones I like to mix at home almost every day. And then I noticed the difference between taste, density and freshness. Whats more, these juices are so liquid without a bit of density. All the fruits and vegetables are organic, squeezed with a press heavy several tons, which is why they got the name Organic Press juices.

The whole idea to produce them got two brothers - Chris and Daniel Vahanian, who wanted to develop this business in order to promote healthy lifestyle in Dubai. They came up with 3 detox programs lasting for one day, three or five. Each of these programs can be found on their website www.organicpress.com, and I strongly recommend you to try this challenge, put some money on a side and order Organic Press. I chose program number 1, and if I have to choose my favorite juice it will definitely be no 2 - pineapple, apple and mint. Soooo delicious, refreshing and sweet enough to meet your needs throughout the whole day. Definitely - recommended!

Pre nekoliko dana, imala sam priliku da isprobam Organic Press sokiće. 6 komada dnevno i tako puta tri dana. Ne konzumirajući ništa sem sokića, ne samo da sam pročistila organizam, već sam i postala ponosna na sebe pre svega pristavši na tako nešto, a zatim i jer sam isterala do kraja. Bez varanja, moliću lepo. Čak sam i žvakama rekla ne, baš iz razloga jer mi je falilo nešto pod zubima da grickam. Nisam htela da se zavaravam, igrala sam pošteno i ispijala sokiće jedan za drugim, upravo redosledom koji je određen. Ako mislite da sam se izgladnjivala i bila pred pad u nesvest, moraćete ipak da mi poverujete da ništa od toga nije tačno. Glad sam osetila tek drugi dan u večernjim satima, ali koji pak nije bio nepodnošljiv. Recimo da je srazmeran onom nakon 5 sati bez doručka.

Kažu da ovim sokićima unosite dovoljno energije da možete da pregurate dan bez problema, a ja sam se i uverila u to. S tim što me umor hvatao već oko 21h, što mi se zapravo i svidelo, jer noćna ptica kao što sam ja uglavnom ne ide u krevet dok ne dočeka jutro narednog dana. E pa umesto tableta za spavanje, ja sam unosila prirodne sokove u svoj organizam i živela super-zdravo, 3 dana koliko je trajao moj detox program.

Ono na šta sam pre samog starta bila upozorena jeste pojava glavobolje. U mom slučaju bila je propraćena osećajem topline. Međutim, sve je to bilo toliko blago da nije moglo da poremeti moje svakodnevne aktivnosti. Osim što sam treniranje morala da izbacim sa to-do liste, jer nikako nije preporučljivo tokom detoxa. Ali baš to trčanje pored mora ili uz Marinu zamenila sam trčanjem u toalet, s obzirom da svako malo morate da trčite u isti, zbog količine tečnosti koju unesete u organizam. Ali, i to sam preživela.

Ono što mi je najviše nedostajalo tokom ova tri dana jeste obaveza da nesto pojedem, da spremim rucak ili pak da sednem u restoran i kao veliki gurman sa uživanjem listam meni. Baš zbog te obaveze koju nisam imala, dani su mi bili prazni i dugi. Odbila sam večeru sa prijateljima, izlazak sa drugaricama i rođendansku tortu kolege na poslu, ali sam se osećala zdravo i sa toliko energije preko dana imala osećaj da ću da poletim.

Kako većina misli da sam pristala na ovakav izazov kako bih izgubila na kilaži, po ko zna koji put moram ponoviti da je to poslednje što mi je palo na pamet. Na detox sam se odlučila pre svega kako bih pročistila organizam i spoznala razliku između Organic Press sokića i onih koje i sama svakodnevno volim da pripremam kod kuće. A zatim sam i sama uočila razliku u ukusu, gustini i svežini. Naime svi ovi sokići su retki, bez i malo gustine. Baš iz razloga jer je svo voće i povrće organsko, ceđeno presom teškom nekoliko tona, zbog čega i dobijaju naziv Organic Press juices.

Ideju za proizvodnju ovih sokića dobila su dva brata Chris i Daniel Vahanian, koji su želeli da razviju ovaj biznis kako bi promovisali zdrav život u Dubaiju. Osmislili su 3 detox programa u trajanju od jednog dana, tri ili pet. Svaki od ovih programa možete pronaći na njihovom sajtu www.organicpress.com, a ja vam toplo preporučujem da pristanete na ovakav izazov, izdvojite novac (koji svakako tih dana nećete trošiti na hranu) i naručite Organic Press. Ja sam izabrala program broj 1, a ako bih morala da izaberem omiljeni mi sokić, to bi bez razmišljanja bio broj 2 - ananas, jabuka i menta. Mmmm veoma ukusan, osvezavajuć i slatkast, toliko da zadovolji potrebe za slatkišima tokom celog dana. Definitivo - preporučujem!




Sip of champagne and nibble on delicious canapés while browsing through One-of-a-kind Million Dollar Closet. Playing the role of Carrie Bradshaw, with SJP shoes on my feet. I would literally spend 40,000$ and have no place to live - If I were Carrie! But thanks to The Luxury Closet (renowned online designer boutique) who gave me a walk through this paradise, we can spend less for buying all these designer pieces. So take a look at www.theluxurycloset.com, spend some money or even earn by selling some of the items from your closet, that are still in good condition.

Gutljaj šampanjca i zalogaj kanapea, dok obilazim One-of-a-kind garderober od milion dolara. Igram ulogu Carrie Bradshaw, u mojim SJP cipelama. I bukvalno bih potrošila 40,000$ i ostala bez krova nad glavom - Da sam Carrie! Međutim, zahvaljujući The Luxury Closet online butiku koji me sproveo kroz ovaj raj, možemo potrošiti duplo manje para za iste dizajnerske komade. Bacite pogled na www.theluxurycloset.com, potrošite novac ili zaradite prodavanjem krpica iz vašeg ormara, koje su naravno još uvek u dobrom stanju.








Before I share with you post from the latest Guess event, I would like to get back to Bab Al Shams Desert Resort where Guess showcased its elegant range of dresses and spring/summer 2015 collection. I had a pleasure to attend lot of events organized by this brand, but to be honest this one was my definitely favorite. Starting with location, across organization, collection, all the way till the end of the fashion show when one of the models appeared on the camel, which surprised us all. 

Pre nego što sa vama podelim post sa poslednjeg Guess-ovog eventa, želela bih ipak da se prisetim predstavljanja kolekcije za proleće/leto 2015, koje je održano u predivnom Bab Al Shams rizortu u sred pustinje. Imala sam čast da prisustvujem mnogim revijama organizovanih od strane ovog brenda, međutim ovaj mi je definitivno omiljeni. Počevši od lokacije, preko organizacije, kolekcije, pa sve do izlaska modela na kamili na kraju revije, što nas je sve posebno oduševilo.

Couple of days ago I had a lovely breakfast with GlamBox and Bioderma Middle East. Gathering at the Cove Beach in Jumeirah Beach Hotel, eating and talking about skin care was everything I needed at that moment. Besides, I also had skin analysis thanks to Bioderma specialists. Now I can be 100% sure when buying their products and not be afraid of taking ones that aren't good for my skin. That's why I'm saying hello to this heat outside. Bring it on Mr. Sun, I have full protection!

Pre nekoliko dana imala sam doručak sa GlamBox-om i Biodermom. Okupili smo se na Cove plaži Jumeirah Beach hotela, mljac, mljac, punili stomake i razgovarali o nezi kože. Ah što volim kada mi tako započne dan. Pored toga, imala sam priliku i da uradim analizu kože zahvaljujući Bioderminim specijalistima. Sada mogu 100% biti sigurna kada kupujem njihove proizvode, jer tačno znam šta mi odgovara, a šta ne. Stoga, pozdravljam ove ludačke vrućine, jer šta može 50 stepeni meni, šta mi može, šta mi sme...

When your friend thousand miles away surprise you at the door, beautify the whole week and throw a big smile on your face, all you can do at that point is be grateful for the wonderful friendship you have and enjoy every single moment together. One of those days my dear friend and I spent in Miracle Garden, right after lunch at Al Barari, The Farm from the previous post. And then, I gave her my camera to take just a photo or two, that is twenty-two, so that I have material for a new blog post. And here it is, me wearing long floral dress that matches the environment, comfy enough to survive being outside on 40 degrees.

Kada vas drugarica iz daleka iznenadi na vratima, ulepša nedelju i nabaci veliki osmeh na lice, jedino što možete u tom trenutku jeste da joj budete zahvalni na divnom prijateljstvu i da uživate u danima koje je izdvojila za vas. Jedan od tih dana nas dve smo provele baš ovde, u Miracle Garden - bašti u sred pustinje, nakon ručka sa pomenute lokacije Al Barari, The Farm iz prethodnog posta. A onda sam je malo izgnjavila i utrapila joj aparat u ruke, za samo sliku-dve, odnosno dvadeset i dve, kako bih imala materijala za današnji post. Cvetna haljina da se slaže uz ambijent, ali i dovoljno lepršava i udobna da preživim dan na +40 stepeni.

Just when I was about to enjoy my day off,  I pinched myself and realized that it's finally time to publish a new post. After such a long time, with new look of my blog (that still needs small changes), with new logo, new address, but old Svetlana Zmukic. To continue where I started with "Dictionary of Fashion" in 2011, and to share with you a part of my life which I'm currently enjoying in Dubai. With head in the clouds, but feet firmly on the ground. In front of you is the first outfit post for this year. My Easter combination while having lunch at Al Barari, The Farm (heaven in the middle of the desert).

Taman kada sam pomislila da će mi ovo biti dan za odmaranje, uštinula sam se i zapravo shvatila da je danas pravo vreme za objavljivanje novog posta. Posle duuugo vremena, sa novim izgledom bloga (kojem fali još par maleckih izmena), uz novi logo, novu adresu, ali staru Svetlanu Žmukić. Da nastavim ono što sam započela sa mojim "Rečnikom mode" davne 2011. godine i da podelim deo svog života koji trenutno vodim u Dubaiju. Sa glavom u oblacima, ali nogama hrabro na zemlji. Pred vama je prvi outfit post za ovu godinu, koji je ujedno i najava mnogih narednih. Uskršnja kombinacija i uskršnji ručak na lokaciji Al Barari, The Farm (čitaj: raj u sred pustinje...više o tome OVDE).

After such a long time, here I am again, guilty for being so lazy to blog. However, I am trying to keep you updated with my life on Instagram. So, if you still don't follow me there check my profile @dictionaryoffashion. These days I'm off which means resting, watching series, movies, vlogs and blogging a little bit, why not, right? But since I don't have new photos, I wanted to at least attach some of my favorite Insta-photos and share it with you guys. Also, I'm not that much lazy as you think. In December I opened a new blog with my blog-friends Jovana, Milena and Milica and I am so happy I'm working with them and sharing a bit of Dubai life with all of my people back to Serbia. Check our blog called eDAYtorial at least to enjoy some photos, since it's written just in Serbian language. Now I'm leaving you with my Insta-faves and wishing you a good night! Xoxo, S.

Posle toliko vremena, evo me ponovo, uz veliki osecaj krivice jer dugo nisam blogovala. U svakom slucaju, trudim se da vas obavestavam o desavanjima o mom zivotu putem Instagrama. Stoga, ukoliko me jos uvek ne pratite potrazite me pod imenom @dictionaryoffashion. Ovih dana sam slobodna, sto je veoma retka pojava s obzirom da zivim 200 na sat. I moram priznati da bas prija izlezavanje 24h, uz serije, filmove, vlogove, pa evo i malo blogovanja, zasto da ne? Medjutim, s obzirom da nemam novih fotografija, odlucila sam da prikacim barem svoje omiljene Insta-fotke. Dosta za danas, hehe... Dok moje blog postove mozete citati na novom portalu koji sam u decemberu mesecu otvorila sa svojim blogo-drugaricama Jovanom, Milenom i Milicom. Obavezno trk na nas eDAYtorial jer vas ceka svasta nesto zanimljivo. Ja vas ostavljam uz svoje Insta-favorite i zelim vam laku noc! Xoxo, S.
