Why You should fall in Love with Belgrade?

My dear travellers, how are you today? It looks like autumn has decided to show us the worst at the very beginning of the season, so this fall season is open with a “variable” weather! Really, I do not know where all that rain comes from, it’s impossible! Today, as I was preparing breakfast, the idea of writing another post about the love of my city came to my mind. I sat down at a table and all of a sudden words came in a minute, real brainstorming, but the creative blockade was also present. And so, after 2 hours, this text was written.

Do you like your city? Did you find your place “under the sun”? If you are interested in an honest answer, just think it is just there lying somewhere in your mind, the answer will come by itself by the time. Pay attention to your emotions. I am sure that each of us has some fond and less beautiful memories that bind us to our hometown…

My friends whom I have met so far are mostly from the other cities of Serbia and we have always tried to visit each other. So this was some of our internal jokes that we are doing some reality travel show, a caravan that from time to time moved to another city in Serbia, but life and work always brought us back to the main capital.

On one occasion, Dusko Radovic, was one of the most famous Serbian poet, writer, journalist and TV editor said: “Who was fortunate enough to wake up in Belgrade this morning can be considered to have achieved enough in his life for today. Any further insistence on something else would be immodest”. We use this quote almost every time when we want to tell something about Belgrade.

Belgrade is a city that welcomes a lot of people from all over the world every day. It is a city that is so natural, and still so modern and comfortable for living. Maybe are standard is quite low, but still people find out the right way how to live a life with less money in their pocket and still to be happy! Since my life story is played somewhere between Serbia and Germany, besides Belgrade, just over 1000 kilometers away is my second home – Berlin. Belgrade and Berlin are totally different, but each is beautiful in its own way. Berlin is maybe better and there are much way bigger chances for a better life, but Belgrade will always stay the city of my dreams and the source of eternal youth! 🙂

Belgrade, a dynamic and bustling city. This is Belgrade as we know it today and what an impression it leaves us as we “run” from Terazije to Zeleni venac… Chaotic, as we panic in the car to the Slavija square, so modern and chic while standing on the escalators of Usce or Delta City Shopping Malls…

This is a briefly described everyday life in Belgrade, but if you take the time or if you are a tourist who came here to get to know this city, you will meet a different city and an unreal metropolis full of sights of cultural as well as historical places where history and events took place. Some events which changed Europe and the world as well. Beautiful facades, unusual buildings, as well as the beautiful and smiling faces of the Belgraders who are considered good and courteous hosts.

Today, I decided to remind you of the beautiful, sunny and bright some days in September, while the foggy and rainy everyday life spoils our mood. It was one sunny Friday when I made a deal with a photographer to do some interesting shooting on the streets of Belgrade. I haven’t made photos on the streets of Belgrade in a long time and I must admit I missed it a lot!

I took the opportunity to “walk through” my new fashion accessory – sunglasses which I recently got from my dear friends Edel Optics.

Edel Optics is one of Europe’s largest online eyewear and sunglasses online store. In addition to the online store operating in all EU countries, they have a flagship store in Hamburg, Germany.

I tried my best to combine the neutral beige with the odd shade of red and I think I did it nicely. You already had the opportunity to see my sneakers in some of my posts last year on my blog, and here is an answer to one of the questions people just love to ask me: “Do you wear all those shoes that you get or you throw all of them away after you finish promotion?!”. I’m one of those people who keeps their belongings for a long, long time…

My dear ones, once again we have come to the end of our post. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! At the end of this post, I would like to thank my friends from Edel Optics for this incredible gift and now I think I just found a new fashion item which you gonna see on my blog for a long time.

One message can make your day…

Hi everyone, how are you today? Finally this nice and warm weather has visited Europe and my dear Serbia. You can feel some cold is the air, but when there are sun rays then it is a bit easier to be outside. I sincerely hope that this nice time has made a smile on your face and that you took advantage of some interesting outdoor activities. Today you will read about the importance of positive energy and how to prepare for the new Fall season.

I hope that you are not like me and that at least you managed to prepare your wardrobe for the new season. Autumn has arrived and you have to pack summer clothes and you will bring out some of your favorite autumn pieces.

Okay, I have to stop here with practical daily tips, but I promise you I will write a new post how to properly put off the old wardrobe. Many of you have asked me about this via e-mail and social media because after a while some unwanted guests – moths. I’ll pay attention to this topic this month, I promise!

The photos for this post were made quite unexpectedly at the end of September, but I decided to publish it as my first post in October and to finish this season. No more short sleeves for this year, we have to wait May next year and then we will enjoy again in the magic of short sleeves.

I remember that these pictures were made on September 19, Wednesday, because it was a busy day of that week because of the duties which I had to do. Since I always carry a backpack and a computer with me because I want to use my breaks in the best possible way. Sometimes it happens that I am very productive and that time simply inspire me to “work” much better and I write the text for a new post.

That day I had 3 important meetings and certain little “holes” in the time that I can use for relaxation – writing new posts. I wrote a couple of PR articles that I had to send to my clients and I thought it was done for today, however … Before I decided to finish my chocolate delight, I wanted to check my e-mailbox for the last time before I leave the pastry shop. New notification – You have 1 new message, I thought again that some brand is sending me a new reminder about their new collection and I want to “eat” myself because I do not have enough money to buy everything I see there…

I’ve been wrong! The title was: “Mr.M, are you ready for the new Fashion Festival?”, I saw it well on the e-mail header that it was an outlet from the McArthurGlen group of outlets located near Venice. Then it occurred to me that I was certainly in some of their customers email base, because I certainly left my email when I bought something there when I was living in Italy during my university days.

Since I had time to open a message and I read text. At the end I saw an invitation, a plane ticket and a hotel voucher. I still do not believe… Few times I read the text and then I realize that I was chosen to be the ambassador of the Festival of Shopping in Noventa Di Piave outlet this year. I have to admit that it is a great honor and I was pleased to accept the invitation and I confirmed my arrival. 

Almost 2 minutes later, I took the phone and I invited my photographer just to share this wonderful news. On the other side of the line I’ve got a question: “Where are you? Do you want to take some pictures for the blog today?! ” In about ten minutes, my photographer came and all photos for this post were done very quickly, because I realized that in less than half an hour I have a meeting that can change a lot of things in my blogging life.

The pictures turned out amazing at the end, my indescribable joy and happiness can be seen on almost all of the pictures on the blog, but this day was very special to me. It was an exciting day in September, which I will remember for a long time. Meetings have passed, new collaborations have been arranged and little Marko will spend this winter in some new adventures in Europe and we will explore together new cities and Mr.M blog will have some new stories to share with you this winter…

Sometimes it takes only a bit of trust in yourself, your work and effort to make everything to be realized according to a plan. The faith, the hope, and the power of positive thinking will do their part, but the cards that destiny prepares for us will put us on a test of perseverance. 

You should always believe in yourself and what you are doing, because if there is no any kind of faith, everything is without any significance. However your idea sounds unbelievable and crazy at first, it’s your idea and my advice to you is to be persistent till end. If you do not try, you will never know. Be the writer of your book which we usually call LIFE and do not chase to be included in someone else’s life.

If you do not want to help someone, that does not mean that you are not a good person, but simply if you don’t want it, everything is for people except when we talking about destroying someone’s life. Live your life and let others live, help if you can, do not try to cheat on somebody because the life is karma and everything returns in the end…

 

My dear fashionistas once again we have come to the end of this special fashion post from my beloved Belgrade. 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 explore one of the shopping spots in Italy. I just can’t wait to show you what my friends from McArthurGlen Noventa Di Piave Designer Outlet and I have prepared for you guys.

At the end of this post, I would like to thank my friends from Apple Deutschland who have treated me with this wonderful new MacBook Pro which helps me in everyday work so that I can work on my blog much better and it’s much easier for me to edit photos and to finish all my sweet blogger tasks.

Smile is the best gift you can give for Christmas…

Hi guys! Welcome to my first post in this 2018 year! I hope that you are good and you had amazing time for the New Year’s Eve. Now I’m preparing for the greatest holiday – Christmas. There are Orthodox Churches in the Europe and in the world that recognize the holiday dates according to the Julian calendar, for example the Russian, Ukrainian, and Serbian Orthodox Churches. Christmas is still on December 25 a holiday everyone rejoices, and most of all children. It’s a real family holiday, no one is alone. I’m sure that many of you have seen those famous American commercials where older people (father or mother, grandmother or most common widows) are waiting near the phone to be called by their children, and from the great expectations were nothing else left…

At the end of each Christmas ad you see the smiling faces of their grandchildren, their partners who are looking forward to seeing their loved ones. Such advertisements always put you to the point of thinking and you ask yourself these type of questions:

 

Has closeness disappeared? Has humanity “gone out” of the latest trends? Does love have a price?Are we afraid that we will be alone in our “gold” age?

 

 

When you are too young there is no too much space for thinking about that. Those questions are too serious to worry about. You don’t think about life and you just hope you always will be close to your parents. Suddenly everything in life is changing… You become a adult person, who must care about “new” family and your children and you just go away to find a better life for your family.

Christmas is a holiday that reminds us of some real values: love and respect. This should never be forgotten. Perhaps our financial standard has fallen significantly because of financial crisis and we may have become more nervous and impatient persons…

Holidays are the only time when we forget everything from our everyday life and we can take a break and everything will be just fine! We didn’t lose our way as people, that’s the most important thing. We have so many days in a year to be sad, just take you chance to spend at least this holiday time in peace and happiness.

 

 

Yesterday I went to take a package at the bus station and I watched a lot of people who came to Serbia to spend Christmas (and maybe Serbia’s New Year, we celebrate that in the night between 13/14 of January) with their loved ones. The tears of the joy, happy faces of mothers and fathers who are waiting for their children and grandchildren and most importantly: The Candies! The children react immediately! I was attracted to attention by a girl who has about 4 or 5 years maybe. She was waiting for her aunt from Germany! Naturally, the aunt came and brought a big package which was full of candies… Yesterday I was so envy on that girl, why I don’t have that aunt from Germany to bring me the package full of sweets, although I’m 25 and I’m still a kid! ?

My mom says, “It’s all good while your children are little and they are only looking for interesting little things like candies, you know all about that and you understand them very well. When they grow up and start asking for bigger things like expensive shoes or bags, then everything is much harder to understand…”. Just to know I am still a child who enjoys in chocolate! For “bigger” things in life I work hard to get them…

 

 

It is very important, during these holidays to think about the value of mutual understanding, respect and most important thing in life: LOVE. There are many family rituals (customs) for Christmas, but that’s all in the spirit of our faith. I had wrote a text on how my family celebrate this great holiday every year, but I finally realised that it wasn’t necessary to write about it. The most important thing is to celebrate this important holiday with happiness and a warm home full of love and understanding. It’s enough for everyone, I guess!

 

 

As I said at the beginning of this post, this is my first post in 2018 and I hope you will like it. The pictures are a little different, the editing of the images are different now and they get some new artistic touch. Thank you very much for all the nice comments and kind support that you have provided me in the past year and I sincerely hope that it will be even better for us in this 2018 year with new interesting pictures and fashion stories.

 

 

Once again, I want to remind you that Christmas is the time of forgiveness and connection with people … If you have any disagreements or you have lost contact with a loved ones, call them, or better you can surprise them with a nice visit. You will see you soon in some new fashion stories and interesting travel adventures.

So far, you have learned that everything is possible in my “interesting” blogger life! I think that February will be a very interesting month on my blog, and I will not talk about it yet, but I promise you will find out in time! ?

 

 

I hope you enjoyed my today’s post and you will listen to my advices. I would like to hear how much you liked my today’s outfit in the post? Many of you asked me about this jacket last year when I took some photos for Instagram in Berlin… It was already the end of winter, but you know that it’s always cold in Berlin and this jacket is perfect for that weather! If there were not my friends from Glamood by Spence and with the little help of Corneliani, this “beauty” wouldn’t been here in today’s post! This jacket may have been from some past season, but we all know that style is timeless and some good fashion items will be IN (trend) forever! I want to say thank you to my friends from Glamood for understanding and letting me to make this post “delay” for almost a year! ?

 

Best,

Marko
