New Spring!



Vikend, razvlacenje po kuci, sredjivanje, maske i hranljive kapsule za lice. Napolju siba vetar, izjednacava se pritisak.

Izadjem u dvoriste i ugledam ih - cetiri busena nekakvih prolecnih lukovicastih visibabasto lalastih biljaka! Pritajene lukovice za koje nisam ni znala eksplodirale su u basti. Trebalo mi je ovakvo ohrabrenje. Novo prolece, nova selidba, i dalje, sve nesto novo. Bice interesantno.




...................................................................................................
Weekend, pyjamas in the house, cleaning up, face mask and nurturing rose oil face capsules. Outside, the wind is kicking to the fullest, the pressure is coming to its senses.

So I go outside in the garden and see them - four little bushes of some kind of bulby, snowdropy tulipy plants! Secret bulbs exploded announcing spring. I needed this boost so desperately. New spring, new transitional home, and further, always all new. It is going to be interesting.

MASTER: Helen Levitt



Helen Levit je njeno ime.

She lived in New York City and remained active as a photographer for nearly 70 years. New York's "visual poet laureate" was notoriously private and publicity shy, sto bi rekli na Wikipediji.

Porede je sa velikanom dokumentarne fotografije, Anrijem Kartije-Bresonom, ali razliku u njenom humoru cini dodatak njujorske ostrice. Kakva radost, ljubav i zadovoljstvo isijava iz njenih fotki! Ja se smejem naglas gledajuci ih.

Helen Levitt is her name.

She lived in New York City and remained active as a photographer for nearly 70 years. New York's "visual poet laureate" was notoriously private and publicity shy, as they'd say at Wikipedia.

Some would compare her to the great photojournalist Henri Cartier Bresson, but the key difference in their humor is Levitt's NYC sharpness. Her photos radiate this enormous amount of joy, love and happiness! I laugh out loud looking at them.

Pizzazz!


Una Pizza Napoletana, closed.
pic via NYTimes


Kao sto sam otkrila tajnu behind simple pasta dish, tako sam konacno shvatila i pizza mistiku (Mystic Pizza, jedan od sestrinih i mojih teen favorita, prim. aut). Klik to play, That's Amore Dina Martina uz ovaj post ide kao pelat uz pizza dough, pa da krenemo iz Little Italy dalje po Menhetnu:



V rlo jednostavno i sve vrhunsko majstorski da bi bilo kako treba. Ne drljavo pica parce, nego vrhunski masterpiece ultimativnog znalca artisana. Osim Italije, ovo cudeso je super big u Njujorku i lako ce se desiti fajt oko toga gde se u NYC-ju moze naci najbolja pizza. Klik na sliku, pa na NYTimes novoj interactive pizza strani poslusajte po koju rec o nekim od aktuelnih mesta:



Ne htedoh da kradem spotlight domacem Campo de Fioriju, pa sada jedan sumarum koji se odnosi na aktuelne tendencije u njujorskom pizza svetu. Tamosnji kulinarski svet je opasan, feisty bas kao Bourdain. Profesionalno kuvanje, jasno vam je, nije romantika, to je lozenje, drajv, fajt, krv, suze i znoj.

I dok su do sada kriticari imali priliku da iz svojih ususkanih fotelja pisu brutalne kritike i tako oblikuju sudbinu prastarih, hit i novih mesta, pa i restoransku panoramu grada, sada kuvari uzvracaju paljbu. Danijela je pogodila centar kada mi je poslala link na tekst koji pise o social media ratu u kome su sada svi ravnopravni. Mimo neta, u opipljivom zivotu, kvalitet, sarm i opstanak restorana zavisi od inicijelne ideje, ekipe i trajnog lozenja koje onda privlaci ljude i cini da se vracaju u restoran.



Kad ne mogu da testiram, ne mogu ni da ocenjujem. Kad je Beograd u pitanju uvek cu vas poslatina tri mesta: u Campo de Fiori, Pomodoro, na Brodic, a preporucuju mi jos jedno pizza place koje cu da chekiram pre nego sto vam ga preporucim. Sto se Njujorka tice, uzivam u predivnim slikama i ozbiljnim osvrtima, sa ostrouminim prikazima i svim potrebnim podacima koje nam sa one strane oceana salje NYTimes. Volim kada mi lokalci prirede selekciju dobrih restorana i uprilice pratece lepe reci. Za lose restorane ne treba mi zli review, ono sto je lose ionako ce nestati. Dakle, u ovom postu kao i na mom blogu en generale - samo divote.

Restaurant Review: CAMPO DE FIORI



ABOUT:
Posle preslatkog unutrasnjeg dvoristanceta u Dubrovackoj ulici u Zemunu u kome je bio sigurno ususkan, prvi Campo de Fiori je pre par godina odsetao nesto dalje niz Glavnu i zamakao ka Nikolajevoj crkvi, u Njegosevu.



SERVICE:Ono sto odredjuje restoran je hrana i atmosfera koju cine dizajn i - ljudi koji u restoranu rade. I ako nesto od tih elemenata zaskripi, srca na kraju mog review-a se tope. Premesteni Campo de Fiori mi je posle malo batrganja ipak prirastao za srce, a i onaj u gradu je jednako dobar, i cini mi se da uspehu ovog mini lanca trattoria u mnogome doprinose dobro odabrani ljudi, kako kuvari, pizza majstori, tako i oni sa kojima cete biti u direktnom kontaktu. Vedri, prijatni i rastereceni, prisustvovala sam nekim neugodnim scenama u kojima su razjarene musterije prosipale na njih sav svoj bezrazlozni bes, a oni stojicki izdrzavali. People, krenite na vreme u restoran i budite svesni vremena koje ce biti potrebno za spremanje jela koje planirate da narucite. Party of 6 i mnostvo razlicitih jela prosto zahtevaju znatno vise vremena za pripremiti nego, na primer, margarita s rukolom.



DESIGN:
Jednostavni klasik trattoria dizajn stampanih stvari. Tamno zelena, poneki diskretni starinski ukras, fin citak serifni font i bledi oker tonovi smiruju rustican enterijer. Dizajn je ovde daleko od fokalne tacke, dominantan je neki homy feel u kome je fin, pregledan jelovnik sve sto vam treba kad ste gladni.



FOOD:To je dakle ta Margherita con rucola e parmiggiano.



U trenu plane tanjusni prhki list testa sa pravom kolicinom stuffinga. Tezak metalni trozubac bice vase oruzje za napasti ovu lepoticu i uz njega jedan klasik tramontina nozic sa drvenom drskom. Za prvi dolazak preporucujem specijalitet kuce - picu Campo de Fiori, koja je njihova ponosna kombinacija i podrazumeva cetvrtine sledecih: Boscaiola (slanina, pečurke, grašak, pavlaka, mocarela), Margherita con Rucola e Parmiggiano, Ortolana (tikvice, paradajz, paprika, plavi patlidžan, mocarela), Spinaci e Gorgonzola. Boskajolu mozete traziti i bez slanine, if you wish. Opet, be nice, say please.



OVERALL:
Solo na kvik bajt, porodicno na tri pizze za cetvoro combo share, sa drugaricom na bla-bla turu, bice vam jednostavno, brbljivo i fino.

Wearable Candy



Beogradske smizle, cujte i pocujte, u gradu se pojavila pilot serija Secerlema majica!

Milica i Marija napravile su malu seriju istinskih girly majica, pravih secerlema za obuci. Ako znate Milicine dosadasnje, iz glave modelovane mekane zivotinjice - broseve, bice vam jasno kuda ovo ide. Preslatke, udobne, hugable, ove majice su rucno pravljene from scratch. Materijal, makaze, masina i njih dve sa svom svojim tehnickim znanjem, mastom i poletom.

Rezultat su sanjalacke majice potpuno razlicitih karaktera. Uz svaku cete dobiti bros iz najnovije serije, pravi pompezni gala bros, gradjen iz mnogo slojeva, materijala i dodataka. Najludji dugmici u ulozi svog zivota.

Ultimativni Haute Couture komad iz ove mini kolekcije je majica sa ugradjenom filcanom portiklom sa stampanim i preinstaliranim secerlemicama. Najtoplija preporuka za iskusne ili barem posebno pazljive domacice koje ce ovakvoj snenokli pruziti siguran dom i trajnu brigu.



Nista drljavo iseceno i sklepano u shreh, ne mirise na komad za jednokratnu upotrebu. Svaka od majica bluzica pazljivo je osmisljena, modelovana, uklopljena, usivena, doradjena, obelezena. Znalacki odabrani materijali, lepi na oko, divni na dodir. Etiketica na vratu, pa unutrasnja etiketica sa uputstvom za odrzavanje rucno stampane rozom bojom na belom filcu, shav na vratu tapaciran plishkastom trakicom.




Ako se desi da vam omiljena iz pilot serije Secerlema majica bude mala (sve su modelovane po M velicini), strpljivo sacekajte skorasnje sirenje linije, a da bi se ekspanzija desila, podrzite proizvodnju kupovinom Secerlema broseva, starih zivotinjica, novih pompeznih ordenja ili kajli sa mini Secerlemama.



Dogovorite sa Milicom vas privatni, takoreci selebriti picking, u ateljeu u Kolarcevoj 3/III. Zvrc na br: 064.17.24.119



....................................................................................................
Hear Yee, hear Yee, Belgrade ladies, pilot series of Secerlema shirts are here!

Milica and Marija made a small pilot series of truly girly shirts, real treats to wear. If you are familiar with Milica's previous ones, out of head modeled soft little animals – brooches, you'll get the idea where this is going to. Too sweet, comfortable, hugable, these shirts are handmade from scratch. The material, scissors, sewing machine and the two of them together with their technical knowledge, imagination and motivation.

The result are dreamy shirts with completely different personalities. With each one, you'll get a brooch from the latest series, true pompous gala brooch, built in many layers, materials and add-ons. The craziest buttons starring in the role of their lives.

Ultimate Haute Couture piece from this mini collection is the shirt with implemented felt bib with printed and pre-installed brooches. I recommend this one to more experienced or at least especially careful little housewives that are able to provide a warm home and lasting care for such a snow egg of a tee.

Nothing half-done, cut and put together in askew, doesn't smell of a single-usage item. Each of the shirt-blouses is carefully anticipated, modeled, fitted in, sewed in, additionally improved, labeled. Knowledgeably chosen materials, nice to see, gorgeous to touch. Label on the neck, and then the inside note with the washing instructions hand printed in pink on white felt, stitch on the neck upholstered with plush ribbon.

If it happens that the favorite one from the pilot series of Secerlema shirts is too small for you (they are all modeled based on M size), patiently wait for the upcoming line expansion, and for the expansion to happen, support the production through buying Secerlema brooches, old little animals, new pompous medals or chains with mini Secerlemas.

Arrange with Milica your private, celebrity picking, in her Belgrade atelier in Kolarceva 3/III. Ring number: +381.64.17.24.119

We♥Science!



Danasnji klinci imaju priliku da svim silama uzivaju u ucenju. Izgleda je doslo vreme da nase generacije, napacene suvoparnim predavanjima, uzmu stvar u svoje ruke.

Tako su nezamisliva svemirska apstrakcija, hemijski elementi popakovani u klot tabelu i stidljivo smesno telesno ljudsko telo ozivljeni ilustracijama i animacijama, razmrdani i izdizajnirani da pozelite da se vratite u mladje razrede osnovne skole. Sve zabavno, duhovito, sareno i logicno i jednostavno. U prilog ucenju napamet sa razumevanjem. U svom klasicnom i pravom skolski sistematicnom duhu sabiram ovde par omiljenih primera iz oblasti osavremenjenja nastave iz prirodnih nauka za malisane.

Najpre, Here Comes Science, disk grupe They Might Be Giants, one koja je 1990 pevala pesmu Istanbul (Not Constantinople), teksta takodje obrazovnog karaktera, koji vam moze pomoci ako u Milioneru budete imali pitanje Kako se nekada zvao Njujork? (Even old New York was once New Amsterdam. I dalje, omiljeni deo: Why they changed it I can't say, People just liked it better that way). Nego, genijalni obrazovni spot za pesmu Meet the Elements sam vam vec prikazala, ovog puta samo still, sve designed by Feel Good Anyway.



I onda, kada smo vec kod elemenata, ide jednostavno presladak Periodni sistem koji je Anneka Tran ilustrovala tako da svaki element bude opisan nama poznatim predmetom koji je od datog elementa sacinjen. Pa onda i svemir o kome u liniji lebde planete Suncevog sistema, svaka ilustrativno opisana svojim glavnim odlikama. Ovaj desktop ce i odrasli voleti na svom desktopu, take me for example. U njenom flickr streamu naci cete i isti ovaj desktop sa svetlom podlogom, i svaku od planetica posebno.




I na kraju, iz Majkijeve i Dzonijeve radionice nedavno se pojavila spica za holandsku deciju naucno popularnu emisiju Het Klokhuis (Apple Core). Ovde samo njihov stariji hit trik klip The Seed, koji je zapravo narucen kao promo filmic Adobe CS4 paketa softvera. Here comes, uzivajte kao dete:



........................................................................................
Today's kids can enjoy their little asses of studying. It seems that our generations, tortured with boring classes, took matters into our hands.

Unimaginable space abstraction, chemical elements packed into straight table and shy funny human body, are now revived in illustrations and animations, moved around and designed for you to wish to go back to junior classes of elementary school. All fun, funny, colorful and logical and simple. Supporting learning by heart with understanding. In my classical and true school-systematic spirit, here I gather a few of my favorite examples in the field of modernizing the science classes for the little ones.

First of all, Here Comes Science from They Might Be Giants, the band that, back in 1990 sang that Istanbul (Not Constantinople) song, lyrics also of educational character, which can help you if in “Who wants to be a Millionaire” you get the question How was New York once called? (They sond says: Even old New York was once New Amsterdam. And more, favorite part: Why they changed it I can't say, People just liked it better that way). But, the ingenious educational video for Meet the Elements number I already showed, this time only style, all designed by Feel Good Anyway.

And then, speaking of elements, we have a simply too sweet Periodic table which Anneka Tran illustrated in a way so that the each element is described with an item known to all of us, and made out of this particular element. And then the space too, in which the planets of the Solar System are floating in a line, each described by its main characteristics in illustration. Adults will also love this desktop on their desktops, take me for example. In her flickr stream, you'll also find this desktop on light background, and each of the planets individually.

And in the end, from Mickey and Johnny's workshop just recently emerged the jingle for Dutch popular science for children show Het Klokhuis (Apple Core). Here only their older hit trick clip The Seed, which was actually ordered as Adobe CS4 software package promo movie. Here comes, enjoy as a child: see clip

Iako sebe tesko mogu da zamislim u nekom od capsule hotela, zadovoljno gledam kako se Japanci svojski trude da humanizuju ovaj koncept, oplemene ga boljim dizajnom i detaljima koji ovakav leteci boravak cine ugodnijim. Spremnost na preispitivanje, menjanje i stalno unapredjivanje je njihova bitna razlicitost u odnosu na nas. Takav je i Njujork, zato ih i volim.



................................................................................
Even though I can hardly see myself taking a nap in one of those capsule hotels, I am pleased watching Japanese trying to humanize this concept, to improve it in design and in details that can make this sleepover nicer, cozier and even chic. What differs them from us is their ability and preparedness to change, reinvent, revise and constantly trying to move forward. That is the way NYC is, and that is why I love both of them.

Moje omiljene od Wallpaperovih 103 backstage fotki. Deluje daleko zivotnije nego na pisti. Kao da si u nekom jako kul klubu, na metro stanici ili samo i jednostavno na ulicama Njujorka.

that is: Wallpaper* New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2010 coverage

My favs among Wallpaper Magazine's 103 backstage photos. Far more lively than catwalk. Like being in a very cool club, on a fashion heaven's subway station or, simply, on the NYC streets.
