Hello, my dear ones, welcome to my first post in 2019. This is my first post this year and I have to admit that I am a little nervous and excited because I have everything on my mind right now and I hope to be able to “speak out” my thoughts and write all of them correctly. First I would take the opportunity to express my sincere apologies to you that I am writing a post today, but I did not arrive because of certain duties earlier and I was not inspired because of the cold (yes, I was sick again!).

I want to congratulate you New Year and Christmas, I wish you all the best from the bottom of my heart. Christmas reminds us every year about the most important values of life: love and respect. I hope that we will all find the peace for which we are constantly searching! I hope you have spent these holidays with your family and friends, some may even have been fortunate to travel somewhere. The most important thing is that we all finally end up with a smile on the face and a filled heart with joy to enjoy in these holidays and we are ready to move on.

I did not plan at all to write a blog post today, but because of an unusual question that I received tonight on Facebook, I decided to write a post with this “interesting” topic. That question was not exactly the reason that led me to write this post, better to say that it was more a “trigger”. During these holidays, I spent a lot of time with my dear people, because of the illness of the photographer, my team was not able to realize the collaboration with one Tourism Board for the New Year’s holidays, because of all of this I decided not to go alone, and the rest of my team agreed with my decision that it is the best that we all spend holidays together in Serbia.

My friends always give me inspiration for my posts on the blog, all the texts so far were in some way directly or indirectly about some of our everyday topics, so we have touched on the theme of physical appearance for these holidays, or has everything become so superficial today? We all know how important it is to leave a good first impression, maybe we will not impress anyone at a first sight, but there is always some chance that someone will remember us for some of our unique personality…

This holiday season my best friend was my hero, why? Her boyfriend left her after 3 years of relationships with words: “Sorry, you’re just not my type!” What connected or better to say “tied” them in those three years? Obviously, it’s just an instinct to spend with a person for three years and to be left in such a way while she was stepping into the new year with thinking that after New Year’s Eve she would choose a wedding dress, she got her “dump” card on December 27th… It’s all life, but have we really become so superficial?

Did love decide to escape from the city or all those wonderful romantic movies on Hallmark channel is just a perfect lie? Of course, American love comedies and soap operas are just there to help us feel a better for hour or two afterward we return to our lives. At least, each of us is aware that perfection exists, but if you decide to spend some time, you should make a little effort to find something interesting in a person who thinks about you on the other side … You all know very well the fact about  that modern saying: “Karma is b..”, everything is at the end coming back.

That was a short story about some of disasters in love relationships, but let’s tell you something about a bit different relationships – Business. If you want to succeed in the business world, whatever you want to do in your life, you need to possess 3 the most important things: self-confidence, persistence and commitment. If you do not own it, you are ruined! It sounds a bit rough, but that is the ugly truth! This is the truth that your life teaches you, but if you change your habits on the time and change yourself, the results will be beyond any average.

As much as anyone thinks that bloggers do nothing and that everything including money and products fall from the sky especially at the moments when we, blogger want, that everything is waiting for us on the plate, and it is only for us to find the ideal white wall to take pictures of our fashion outfits… FALSE! Blogger’s work is very complex, some people who met me have changed their opinion about our profession because they saw with which problems we are facing daily. Each of us can be a blogger, you can run your blog and write about a topic or many different topics that really interact with you.

Bloggers need to know more things, besides having some talent for writing, they need to know how to edit photos, they must always improve themselves, have to learn new marketing tools, persistent to be good absolutely in everything. I started my blog by taking pictures with the help of my friends with a mobile phone, I told you about it in some post, to be honest right now I can not exactly remember in which, it does not matter now. It’s important that you know where you are going and that you do not lose your self for a pair nice shoes or some coat, this is where self-confidence, perseverance and dedication arouses to help you to get know yourself much better.

I have always been fortunate to be surrounded by people who are trying to help me in my vision to make Mr.M a something more than just a blog; it is simply an oasis of peace where everyone can relax and those few minutes that leave for themselves just to clear their minds with a cup of Coffee, if you encounter my blog, enjoy some nice and interesting topics like fashion and travel.

I mentioned FASHION and TRAVEL. These are two completely different things, but they can connect nicely. Fashion has always been a “cruel” industry. There always were high standards that were difficult to fulfill… Beauty has always been the most important thing and everything else is being suppressed. The average people have never been in fashion, but the times have changed NOW. We all see the top models look perfect on the runways and during the shootings of some fashion editorials. When you see them in live, finally you realize that they are not nothing special, that it is all makeup and a good Photoshop…

Yesterday I got an interesting question on Facebook and I shared with my friends in my own way:

Guys, I’ve just got an interesting question … 

Person: “How can you be a blogger when you’re not beautiful?”

After 30 minutes I ate all the sweets in the house, I called 15 friends to cry and to find some good answer, I also called a plastic surgeon with the desire to change my personal appearance, but I realized that I need at least 30,000 dollars that I will not earn for my 10 lives… So, my diplomatic and calm answer was:

“Beauty is in the eye of an observer, good night and pleasant dreams!”

Many people thought this message was ridiculous because I wanted to entertain people on the way I usually do, but on the other hand, I really do not care about it, because I just wanted to entertain people and to share something interesting with them. Also, there are blogger who are sensitive to such messages, so they lose self-confidence and do not know how to continue with their work. I will only tell you one thing, as an average man with average intelligence, keep in mind that you need to look at yourself and go only through life, because beauty is transient. Beauty is a feature that has value only to cold and superficial people.

It’s great when a woman or a man is good as a person and beauty is just as an additional plus to all those other qualities. According to some of my modest opinions, people who are looking at the exterior only are cold and empty and try to make up some totally unnecessary standards.

Will beauty save the world and humanity? Believe me, we are all human, but rarely is a person. Strive to be a good person and provide everyone a chance and realize that there is nothing to insult or humiliate a person. Everybody is beautiful in his own way, each of us has something special and we need to appreciate what we really have.

At the end, I would like to tell you a short story about the outfit that you had the opportunity to see today on the photos. You saw this lovely shearling leather jacket last winter on the blog, I just decided to get it out of my closet and walk this season again. This amazing turtleneck sweater I’ve got from my friends from the fashion house Turo from Finland.

I received my boots last year from my friends from Burberry, just not to think that bloggers only bring things for a couple of times, then we throw it in the garbage like it hasn’t ever existed… I do not throw anything at all, I have things I’m keeping and I am happy to carry them even today, although all those years, this boots are something special for me, they are evidence that I did something good in my blogging life to get them.

My dear fashionistas, once again we have come to the end of this fashion – lifestyle tips post. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will star some new adventure!

At the end of the post, I would like to thank my friends from the Turo fashion house which helped me to explore urban world of men’s fashion.

P.S. I have to share some confidential information with you! Special sales have started on official website of Turo fashion house, so now you can use your chance to buy this amazing turtleneck sweater on the link bellow or you can find some other interesting items for you.

      Dear Zoe, I’m so sad because of your story! Nobody deserves to be left alone like that. As we can see from your story, Karma really exists and it makes the right order in life. I read the rest of your comment with the smile on my face because you found the man who deserves you and he is taking care about you. I really hope that he is the one and you will happy. 🙂

    Wonderful text with realistic life point and you also did a good job as a fashion blogger. I did’t have problems like you described in the post, but I’m sure your friend will be OK. Can you tell me which size of turtleneck sweater you wear? I am also tall and slim, but I’m not sure is M or L size is good for me. Thanks!

      Hey Damien, thank you for reaching me and for this nice comment. I’m 1.90 m and 75 kilos, so I’ve got for myself M and it’s perfect. Turo makes littler bigger sizes than other companies so if you are like me, medium size will be just fine. When you buy tell me your thoughts. I’m sure you will not make mistake if you buy Turo turtleneck sweater, because material is so soft and their wool is so quality and comfortable for wearing.

      Best,
      Marko

    Beautiful text, yeah I agree with you that sometimes fashion industry is cruel to ordinary people. All those fashion designers who create some designs just for a slim girls who look like hungry for all life. I wear USA size 10 and I’m proud woman with my curves. You are really beautiful and strong man, also you are a good motivator. Just keep going this way and I am sure you will be the best blogger in the world.

      Dear Christina, it’s good to read this! My heart is full when I read that some woman or man is satisfied with own appearance and life as well. Everyone is perfect on some different way and when we learn to respect that maybe this world will be the better place for all of us! Thank you for the kind compliments and I will say something to you: YOU GO GIRL! 🙂

      Best regards,
      Marko

    Happy New Year! One of my colleagues has shared this post on LinkedIn and I must say this is very motivational and on another hand educational post. I really did not expect to read a post like this from a fashion blogger. Mostly fashion bloggers write few sentences and put a thousand links where you can buy the clothes… You have a serious text and just one small paragraph about your outfit at the end. That is amazing! After all I clicked on the link for a sweater, because I like the colour and you previously wrote that they have a nice discounts so I checked it out by myself. You’ve got few new readers, because almost 20 people here in my office are read your post. Nice job, well done! Cheers from London

    It’s much easier for you to talk about beauty when you are already beautiful, you look like a model: tall, slim, dark hair, dark eyes just perfect for Arabian market and commercials. I’m short, average little fat man and every day I heard on my job that I’m just an average guy, maybe that is because I work in the lab and I am not outdoors type of person. The same thing is with clothing, I can remember when K used to weat normal jeans, when I last 4 years just wore comfort model of trousers. I can’t live on diets, I tried but after few days I have strong headaches and I stop with it. So there are always some worse cases than yours. Cheers from Dublin 👋🏻

      Hello Patrick, thank you for your time which you spend to read my post and to write comment. I really admire you that you have strength to admit to yourself all those things. I’m also average kind of guy, maybe I am slim, but also I’m not perfect at all… With the goooood help of a PS I could look like a wonder! 😀 Also I’m proud on myself because I have a realistic opinion about my appearance and other things in life. Diet could be sometimes heavy for our organism, maybe you could eat food with less calories and go to do some nice cardio walk after the work. I’m not a fitness coach, but maybe that could help you to feel better in your skin. Nobody is perfect and everyone is beautiful on some own special way. Try to reorganise your life a little, do some interesting things during the day do not stay at home all day long. After work try to socialise with someone from work, maybe you can meet someone new for hang out, who knows! I expect to hear some good news soon Patrick! Fingers crossed! 🙂
