From my office

Untitled

Instead of an outfit post, today I wanted to tell you few things about our future plans, ideas and projects for the next month, so for a change you can see me in my office. Many of you don’t know that I am actually a pharmacist by profession and despite opening my blog over 4 years ago, I stuck to the pharmacy profession, even when blog started bringing income, I am just someone who likes safety, and did not want to rely on a job that doesn’t come with a fixed monthly cheque. I was still sticking with the pharmacy job up until 1st of July this year, when I finally decided its time to resign, mainly because my blog is giving me a lot more satisfaction, I can do what I love and still have nice living. That is a whole other topic, it took me over 8 months of thinking discussing with my family and friends, and I decided that my pharmacy degree will always be here, I can come back to it one day, but in the meanwhile wanted to try out doing what I am passionate about and just living the life of my dreams. Two months into that I think it was a great decision, I have already developed some extra skills, and don’t feel constantly tired trying to balance living two different lives, the one of travelling fashionista, and the other of a responsible pharmacist dispensing and checking medication and prescriptions for loads of people every day. Long story short, this feels like the hard work blogging has finally brought me something I dreamt of. Without ever thinking this would be my job, I managed to persistently work on it, to build this amazing community and to establish great connection with YOU, my readers. This also means that there will be a lot more dedicated stories, not just outfits, but more beauty posts, more videos and more “how to” posts. The main reason behind this post was to announce that in less that 1 week we are going on an amazing adventure called the fashion month, I will be heading to New York Fashion Week next week, from where I will inform you about all the trends and relevant moments, after which I will head to London, Milan and Paris. Who is excited? I just know that I feel extremely grateful every night I go to bed and every morning I open my eyes for the chance I was given, and for your love and support I get in huge amounts. I promise you that I will try my best to always give you inspiring content on this blog, which was also the purpose of this post, don’t ever give up on your dreams, but also don’t think they will just come to you if you don’t work.

Umesto ubicajenog outfit posta, danas sam htela da vam kazem par reci o planovima za seledeci mesec, ideje i projekte koje imam na umu, tako da me mozete videti u mom prirodnom stanistu-kancelariji. Mnogi citatelji ne znaju da sam ja po profesiji zapravo farmaceut i da iako sam blog otvorila pre vise od 4 godine, nisam odustala od profesije farmaceuta. Cak ni kada je blog poceo da donosi primanja nisam htela odustti od farmacije,jer sam neko ko voli sigurnost i redovnu mesecnu platu. Tako je bilo sve do 1.jula ove godine,kada sam konacno odlucila da je vreme da dam otkaz, vecinom zato sto mi blog donosi mnogo vise zadovoljstva, mogu da se bavim onime sto mnogo volim i da od toga lepo zivim. To je tema za drugi post, jer se ova ideja motala u mojoj glavi preko 8 meseci i bila uzrok dugackim razgovorima sa porodicom i prijateljima, ipak sam odlucila da ce moja diploma uvek biti tu, da joj se mogu lako vratiti u bruducnosti, ali da sada zelim probati nesto drugo i ostvariti svoje snove. Nakon dva meseca od te odluke, sigurna sam da nisam pogresila. Razvila sam neke nove sposobnosti, vec naucila mnogo toga i nisam konstantno umorna pokusavajuci da izbalansiram zivot putujuceg fashioniste sa onim ozbiljnog i odgovornog farmaceuta koji svaki dan ispunjava brojne recepte i daje savete ljudima. Da skratim pricu, mislim da mi je naporan rad doneo zivot i posao o kojem sam mogla samo sanjati. Kada sam otvorila blog nisam uopste mislila da bi mi ovo nekada mogao biti posao, iako nije imao neku preteranu ulogu u mom zivotu odlucila sam da ne odustajem od njega i da razvijem divnu grupu citatelja sa kojima cu deliti sve ono sto volim i sto me zanima, to ste naravno VI. Cinjenica da imam vise posla znaci da ce na bogu od sada biti vise beauty postova, videa, i temtskih prica, kao sto su “how to” postovi. Glavni razlog danasnjeg posta je da objavim da za manje od nedelju dana putujemo na novu avanturu zvanu Modni Mesec, u Njujork putujem sledece nedelje, gde cu vas sa nedelje mode obavestavati o novim trendovima i svojim kombinacijama-naravno, posle toga na red dolaze London, Milano i Pariz. Jel jos neko uzbudjen? Samo zelim da vam kazem da sam ja jako zahvalna za sve sto imam priliku da dozivljavam, svako vece legnem u krevet sa punim srcem i otvorim oci zahvalna za ljubav i podrsku koju imam od vas.Obecavam vam da cu se uvek truditi da vas inspirisem mojim putovanjem i da je to jedna od svrha ovog posta. Nikada ne odustajte od vojih snova, ali isto tako nemojte misliti da su snovi moguci ako u njih ne ulozite mnogo rada i truda!

Takodje i ja sam neko, ko voli modu i novinarstvo, a studiram ekonomija zbog sigurnosti. Volela bih da radim ono sto volim, a to je tako usko povezano s tim sto i ti radis. Poslednju recenicu si pametno napisala, bez mnogo truda,rada i upornosti ne mogu se realizovati snovi! To mi je i misija i motiv, da tako radim.
    Sve najbolje draga ti zelim od srca! :)

  34. Marija says:

    Od tako pametne i inspirativne devojke, nisam ocekivala da cu jednog dana procitati ovakvu glupost. Srecno!

    • Jonas says:

      Ne znam samo koje je glupost, to sto je snove pretvorila u stvarnost, radi sto voli i zaradjuje vise od bloga nego farmacije? Mislim da je ovo bas ortodoksan hejt!

  35. Maja says:

  42. Sophie says:

    Hi Tamara !! I just found out your blog, even if I have watched few of your videos on Youtube ! I am really really (++++) surprised to see that you have come so far ! And it makes me smile because I am just like you … I’m also a pharmacist (but French), who has discovered the word “Travelling”, loves the beauty and fashion world.. and wanted more of it ! I am feeling kind of stuck right now in a place that I like but inside me, something is telling me that this not what I should do. I have been wondering for a few weeks/months now about starting something on my own like you did in parallel of my job. Maybe you won’t be able to see this since your post was ages ago !! But you make me want to jump into this !! Thanks :)
