Welcome to my website !

Struggling to find a peaceful place in Dubai to replace your office? A place where you can do some work but also rest at the same time? I found one and I’m pretty sure you’re all gonna like it as much as I do. Remember Nadi in Al Quoz that I mentioned couple of times on my Snapchat and Instagram? Ohh yes, that’s the one! Located in Warehouse 90 in Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz, Nadi quickly became one my definitely favorite places in Dubai. And I’m not kidding at all! After the airport, that’s my second happiest place in the whole UAE. They've even got a 14-week programme to get you involved in artistic and community-driven initiatives. So I highly recommend you to pay a visit to this cute cafe asap because it’s gonna be there just until 29th of October. Unfortunately I’m not happy about that at all but I really hope Alserkal Avenue is going to prepare something even better (if that’s possible) to replace Nadi for another cool pop-up restaurant. And as you may already noticed, I took a chance to shoot my outfit while I was there, working… Luckily there was enough light to shoot inside, which makes me sooo happy. I don’t have to sweat outside on freaking 50 degrees just because of this blog post. Haha. #DubaiBloggersProblems. Enjoy and let me know when you go there how did you like it. :)

Živite u Dubaiju i problem vam je da nađete mirno mesto kako biste zamenili kancelariju? Kutak u kojem možete i da radite ali i da odmarate u isto vreme? E ja sam otkrila jedno za koje sam sigurna da će se svima svideti baš koliko i meni. Sećate se Nadi in Al Quoz kutka koje sam već par puta spomenula na Snapchatu i Instagramu? Oohh da, to je taj! Skriven na lokaciji Warehouse 90 u Alserkal Avenue, Al Quoz, Nadi je postao jedno od mojih definitivno omiljenih mesta u Dubaiju. I ne šalim se ni malo, nakon aerodroma to je moje drugo srećno mestu u čitavim Emiratima. Stoga vam zaista toplo preporučujem da posetite ovaj kafic, i to što pre, jer je otvoren samo do 29. Oktobra. Na žalost nisam srećna zbog toga, ali se iskreno nadam da nam Alserkal Avenue priprema još bolju zamenu (ukoliko je to moguće) nekim drugim cool pop-up mestašcem. Verujem da ste već primetili, ugrabila sam priliku jedan dan da islikam svoj outfit ovde, koji danas delim sa vama. Sreća pa ima dovoljno dnevne svetlosti za fotkanje u zatvorenom prostoru, zbog čega uzvikujem jeeeej i radujem se što barem zbog ovog posta ne moram da se preznojavam napolju na 50 stepeni. Haha. #DubaiBloggersProblems. Uživajte i javite mi kako vam se dopada mesto ukoliko ga budete posetili. :)

Quick hi while doing some work at my new favorite spot called "Nadi in Al Quoz". More about this place coming very soon. But I'm sure you already googled it after seeing loads of posts from this place on my Snapchat. Oh, you don't follow me there? Well you definitely should. @cecolinda if you were struggling to find me. And don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube Channel 'cause I ain't gonna leave that profile neglected. 

Brzinski pozdrav dok raduckam na mojoj trenutno omiljenoj lokaciji "Nadi in Al Quoz". Više o ovom mestu uskoro, mada sigurna sam da ste ga već proguglali nakon gomilu videa koje sam postavila na Snapchatu. Oh, ne pratite me? E pa mislim da biste mogli. @cecolinda moliću lepo, eto ako vam je do sada bio problem da me pronađete. A ne zaboravite ni da me zapratite na Youtube kanalu, jer kao što vidite ne planiram ni njega da zapostavim. 



Hello Serbia, it's been awhile. We meet again, even though I am someone who prefers exploring new places and meeting new faces. So when it comes to traveling I like going somewhere I've never been before. But ok Serbia is an exception, just because of my family and friends. Otherwise, I had 22 years to wander around and now it's time to explore other parts of the globe. Right? Cause why would I go through the same streets over and over again when there are thousands of others my feet never stepped on. Life is short and the world is wide. But yeah, going back to Serbia is inevitable for me. Especially when you have that important role of auntie but you live far away from those cute little kiddos, just like me. Yup, you read it right, it's kiddoS now since I've became an auntie again this February. Hurray for having another princess in our family who's gonna be just like me! :)
So couple of days ago I was there, seeing my second niece Iva for the first time, celebrating her sister's 2nd Birthday and spending some nice time with the rest of my family and my best friends. And even though that was a trip called "vacation" I managed to leave my phone on a side for a while, but I couldn't leave my camera. So I filmed this short video with just a small part of my huge family. Next time there will be more, I promise, cause there are some missing here. :)

P.S. Don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel cause there's more videos coming soon!



Hello Srbijo, dugo se nismo videli. Susrećemo se opet, iako sam ja neko ko zapravo preferira istraživanje novih mesta i upoznavanje novih ljudi. Stoga, kada je reč o putovanjima uglavnom volim da obilazim mesta na kojima nikada nisam bila. Ali ok Srbijo, ti si izuzetak ali samo zbog porodice i prijatelja. U suprotnom, imala sam 22 godine da švrljam tvojim ulicama, sada je vreme da istražim druge krajeve sveta. Zar ne? Jer zašto bih konstantno hodala istim ulicama, kada postoji na hiljade drugih kroz koja moja stopala još uvek nisu kročila. Život je kratak a svet ogroman. Ali da, odlazak u Srbiju je za mene neizbežno. Naročito jer imam tu bitnu ulogu tetke ali živim daleko od svojih princeza. Da, dobro ste pročitali, u pitanju je množina jer sam u februaru postala tetka po drugi put. Uraaa za još jednu poticu u našoj porodici koja će biti na mene! :)
I tako sam ja pre nekoliko dana odletela baš put Srbiju, da se upoznam sa mojom drugom princezom, Ivom, da proslavimo drugi rođendan njene sestre Lane i da provedem neko vreme sa ostatkom porodice i prijateljima. I iako se ovo putovanje trebalo da se zove "godišnji odmor", uspela sam da ostavim telefon sa strane na neko vreme, ali ne i kameru. Tako da sam zabeležila neke momente sa samo malim delom moje velike porodice. Sledećeg puta će biti malo više, obećavam, jer nije u redu što neki fale u ovom videu. :)

P.S. Ne zaboravite da me zapratite na Youtube-u jer uskoro stiže još videa!


Something slightly different on my blog today. Something I've never really talked about, but trying to get back in shape after this food in Dubai destroyed me is one thing I'm dealing with every single day. Welcome to my life! Working out five days a week when managing to do that, eating clean and cutting sugar from my meals became my lifestyle. But still, we all need those cheat days once in a while, right? And lot of us are actually dying to try some treatments that will make us slim down faster. Been there, tried that! And now I'm ready to share my experience with you.So couple of days ago I've decided to pay a visit to Bionix Body Designers and try that 45 minutes slimming shot challenge. They said it's the most effective and aggressive non-surgical body shaping treatment ever. There is no downtime, no pain, no pin prick and immediate visible results. And yeah, first I was impressed how they measured my fat, muscles and the amount of water in my body. And then miracle happened, just after 45 minutes of basically laying on the bed, snapchating, texting with friends, while I was having a treatment that helped me lose 7,5 cm in total. The whole process was quite simple. They focus on melting fat and then draining it out through lymphatic channels using their vacuum fat loss machine. It improves metabolism, induces skin tightening and honestly it's so easy, fast and for me it wasn't painful at all. What's more, I really enjoyed this treatment. So in case you want to visit Bionix Body Designers, you can find this place at 205B Falcon building, Al-Mina road in Bur Dubai.
Nešto sasvim drugačije danas na mom blogu. Tema o kojoj još uvek nisam prićala, ali pokušavanje da se vratim u formu nakon što me hrana u Dubaiju uništila je nešto sa čime se borim svakoga dana. Dobrodošli u moj život! Treniranje pet puta nedeljno (kada za to imam vremena), zdrava ishrana i izbacivanje šećera iz obroka, postali su jednostavno moj način života. Mada ipak, svima nama s vremena na vreme zatrebaju oni "cheat" dani, zar ne? Isto tako mnogi od nas očajnički žele da isprobaju sve moguće tretmane koji će nam pomoći da uklonimo neželjene kilograme. Been there, tried that! Te kada sam već okusila tako nešto, red je da podelim sa vama svoje iskustvo.Naime pre nekoliko dana posetila sam Bionix Body Designers zbog izazova zvanog 45 minutes slimming shot. Kažu da je to najefikasniji ne-hirurški tretman za oblikovanje tela ikada. Nema iglica, nema bola a rezultati su vidljivi odmah. Prvo me impresioniralo kako su mi izmerili mast, mišiće i vodu u telu. A zatim se dogodilo čudo posle zaista svega 45 minuta izležavanja na krevetu, snapchat-ovanja i dopisivanja sa društvom, za vreme čega se odvijao taj tretman koji bukvalno nisam ni osetila, a nakon kojeg sam zaista izgubila 7,5 cm u totalu. Jer ceo proces je jednostavan. Fokusiraju se na topljenje masnih naslaga koje zatim usisavaju vakum mašinom za gubljenje masti. I verujte mi zaista nije bolno, čak štaviše uživala sam u čitavom tretmanu. Stoga, ukoliko želite da posetite Bionix Body Designers, nalazi se na adresi: 205B Falcon building, Al-mina road u Bur Dubaiju. 

Romantic? Yes, I am. Love waking up to a nice view? Oh, you bet. So, that was the reason why I chose Old Meidan hotel to spend a night while exploring old part of Tbilisi. It was such a pleasant swap - from a dusty Dubai and its skyscrapers to a lovely old town that reminds me of Europe. What's more, the location couldn't be better, everything was within reach - both sides of Old Tbilisi connected by a bridge and by ropeway that was visible from my bed, then famous Sulphur bath just 3 minutes away from my hotel, river and small area next to it full of bars, restaurants and cafes shoulder to shoulder along a series of pedestrian streets with those adorable balconies from an old brick-build homes. Now I wanna go back to that place, to jump in that cozy bed with a cup of tea and my loved one. I'll be back one day Georgia, to explore your streets during summer. 

Romantična duša? Da, jesam. Volim da se budim uz predivan pogled kroz prozor? I te kako. Stoga sam izabrala Old Meidan hotel dok sam istraživala stari deo grada Tbilisi. Kakva prijatna promena - iz Dubaija sa svojim oblakoderima u ovakav jedan stari deo Gruzijske prestonice, koji me vraća u Evropu. I da budem iskrena, lokacija nije mogla biti bolja, sve nam je bilo na dohvat ruke - obe strane Starog grada povezane mostom i žičarom koju sam mogla da posmatram iz svog kreveta, zatim reka i četvrt pun restorana i kafića rame uz rame sa gomilom malenih ulica koje krase predivni balkoni starih ciglenih kuća. I evo, ovog trenutka želim da se vratim tamo, da uskočim u onaj topao krevet i odmaram uz divan pogled, šolju čaja i meni dragu osobu. Zaista se moram vratiti u Gruziju jednoga dana, da je upoznam i tokom leta.  














As you all probably know it's Ramadan now in Dubai, the holiest month in Islamic calendar.  Even though I don't celebrate it, I wanted to do something special this year 'cause I've always wanted to contribute to the world somehow. Maybe I'm not able to start a charity now but I definitely am to do a collaboration with 800flower.ae and spread some love and happiness all over MyDubai. Guess what? That's exactly what I did couple of days ago when I was giving out their gorgeous flowers, believe it or not, but to strangers. It doesn't matter if they don't know me personally, what matters is that by doing this I'll make someone happy. To be honest, I had lot of fun and I'm sure I made their day brighter on those hellish 40 degrees. You see, it's not that difficult to make someone happy, which means we should do it more often. So, let's start today! Surprise the people you love with small presents, kind words, help, a hug, a genuine compliment, or with flowers just like I did. To help you with that, I would definitely recommend you www.800flower.ae where you can find a huge range of gift ideas + you can use my promo code Svetlana2016 in order to get 10% discount on your next purchase. Ramadan Mubarak everyone! 









Moving on to my vacation in Georgia 'cause I still haven't posted all of my photos from that trip and currently I'm in a process of planning some new escapes. Just can't wait to sit on a plane and get lost, 'cause it's been a while since my last vacation and me no like it. However, as you probably noticed I like filming my trips and putting together all of the clips I take on the road. Remember my video from Sri Lanka, right? I got so many positive feedbacks and I personally really do love it 'cause it reminds me of all of those wonderful days I've spent on that beautiful island. So next video I'm gonna share with you is from Georgia, as you can tell. Lovin' it as well since I had so much fun wandering around the country, together with an old friend of mine who I haven't seen since our crazy 6 weeks we spent together in Milan four years ago. Gosh, time flies like crazy...

Da se vratimo na moj odmor u Gruziji, s obzirom da još uvek nisam postavila sve fotografije sa tog putovanja, a u procesu sam planiranja svog narednog bega. Jedva čekam da sednem u avion i izgubim se negde, jer je već prošlo dosta od moje poslednje skitnje a to mi se ni malo ne sviđa. I verovatno ste primetili da volim da snimam klipove na putovanjima, te da ih na kraju sklopim u jedan maleni video baš kao onaj sa Šri Lanke. Sećate se tog videa, zar ne? Dobila sam gomilu pozitivnih komentara, a i ja ga lično mnogo volim jer se prisetim tih dana provedenih na tom predivnom ostrvu. A kao što možete da predpostavite, sledeći na redu je video iz Gruzije koji danas delim sa vama. Još jedan meni jako drag, jer sam se zaista divno provela lutajući Gruzijom zajedno sa drugaricom koju nisam videla još od onih ludih 6 nedelja koje smo provele zajedno u Milanu pre četiri godine. Vreme zaista nenormalno leti...
