This Year…

My dearest, its been a while, hasn’t it?

Well I’m here now and I’m writing to you about my expectations in 2017, and there are a lot of them.

First thing’s first, i bought myself a camera so i could go anywhere alone without being dependent on someone. Or i could go with my boyfriend. Because what kind of journey would it be if i went with someone else, but wishing all that time that he was living this splendor with me? Or if I arranged a trip to London with my best friend and went without her. That’s a no-go. Maybe the photos wont be the best, and i have enough of those on my profile (a big thank you to all the photographers who worked with me, we did an amazing job), but at least ill be sharing the best moments with my loved ones, and isn’t that the point of it all?

And I’m not talking only about traveling. I’m talking about fashion photography, advertisement and fooling around at home.

But yes, this year I’m hoping that I’ll go somewhere at least once in every two months. 18.2. I’m going to Venice, and sometime in March I’m going to London with my girlfriends to work on my blog. This year I have Paris, Montenegro, Milan, Santorini, Valletta and Amsterdam in plan. The year has just started, as did my business emails where I had gotten a couple of positive answers. And this year comes my very first plane ride. Ill probably cry out of fright the whole ride too. Or something like that.

I’m planing on moving out of Zagreb to somewhere south and opening a small boutique with girly trinkets, so a lot of that will be on the blog too. It is my dream now. To work on myself through the blog and boutique, to know my limits and to see if its possible to do everything that you set your mind to.

Actually, i think the boutique will do great and that ill eventually be able to afford my other dreams, say New York or the Maldives. It would be silly to just fantasize about it, right? So I’m hoping to realization starting in March. Wish me luck. Further on, my wish is to get my blog to a 100k readers this year, and we are past 10k. Its a long year. And ill be writing more frequently and more interesting content. 2016. was relatively good for my blog, because it spread around the whole world, and i can proudly say that its being read on every continent. I don’t know who to be thankful to or how it spread across the whole world so quickly.

In this starting year maybe ill listen to the advice of many and start my You tube channel. Its a long year (well it is), so maybe it will happen in October or December. Or maybe never. I’m currently focusing on Instagram, I follow a lot of my role models and i learn from them. The most important things is to learn new thing every day and to mature as you do it.

I’ve decided to dress up once a week, because why not? Who knows who you might meet. And since we’re on that topic, the other day, well yesterday actually, I was walking on the square and this 15 year old girl stops me and starts staring at me. She looks at me and i look back at her, and she asks me if I’m the girl who writes the lucijabbtravel blog. I was so glad. I’m attaching another photo in which I’m dressed up.

Dragi moji, prošlo je dugo, zar ne?

Evo, sad sam tu i pišem vam koja su mi očekivanja od 2017.godine, a imam ih puno.

Pa prva stvar, kupila sam si fotić da svuda mogu ići sama, sama, bez da ovisim o nekome. Ili mogu ići s dečkom. Jer kakvo mi je to putovanje kad idem s bilo kim drugim, a cijelo vrijeme zapravo želim da svu čar proživljava sa mnom? Ili dogovaram s najboljom prijateljicom već godinama da odemo u London, i sad kad imam dogovoren put, odem bez nje. Ne bi išlo. Možda fotografije neće biti najbolje ikad, a takvih imam dosta na mom profilu (zahvaljujem se svim fotografima koji su radili sa mnom, napravili smo odličan posao!! 🙂 ), ali ću bar sve najbolje trenutke dijeliti s najdražim ljudima, a nije li to i bit svega?

I tu ne govorim samo o putovanjima. Govorim i o modnoj fotografiji, i o reklamama i glupiranju doma.

Ali, da, ove godine se nadam da ću bar jednom u dva mjeseca otići nekud. 18.2. idem u Veneciju, a negdje u 3.mjesecu idem u London sa svojim curama, raditi na svom blogu. Ove godine mi je još u planu Pariz, Montenegro, Milano, Santorini, Valletta i Amsterdam. Godina je tek počela, kao i moji poslovni mailovi gdje sam već i dobila par potvrdnih odgovora! A ove godine i slijedi moja prva vožnja avionom. Vjerojatno ću preplakati cijeli put od straha. Ili nešto slično.

Planiram se i preseliti iz Zagreba negdje južno i otvoriti mali butik sa ženskim stvarčicama, tako da će i dosta toga biti na blogu. To mi se sad san. Raditi na sebi kroz blog i butik, vidjeti gdje su mi granice i jel je moguće napraviti sve što želiš.

Zapravo, ja mislim da će butik raditi super i da ću si u konačnici moći priuštiti i moje druge snove, recimo New York i/ili Maldive. Bilo bi bezveze da samo maštam o tome, zar ne? Tako da se nadam krenuti s realizacijom već početkom ožujka. Držite “fige”.

Dalje, moja želja je dovesti blog do 100K čitatelja ove godine, a sad smo prešli 10. Duga je godina. A i pisat ću više i nadam se zanimljivije sadržaje.

2016. je bila relativno dobra za moj blog, jer se proširio po cijelom svijetu, i ponosno mogu reći da se čita na svakom kontinentu! Ne znam kome biti zahvalna ni kako je moguće da se u tako brzom vremenu proširio na cijeli svijet.

U ovoj godini što nam je počela možda poslušam savjet mnogih i otvorim YouTube kanal. Duga je godina (a kad je), pa možda to bude i u listopadu ili prosincu. A možda nikad. Sad se fokusiram najviše na instagram, pratim dosta svojih uzora i učim od njih. Najbitnije je svaki dan učiti i odrastati.

Odlučila sam se i jednom tjedno srediti, jer zašto ne? Tko zna koga možeš sresti.

A kad smo kod toga, neki dan, jučer zapravo, šećem trgom i zaustavi me neka curka od 15 godina i gleda me. Gleda ona mene, gledam ja nju, i pita ona mene jesam ja cura koja piše blog lucijabbtravel. Baš mi je bilo drago. 🙂

Prilažem još jednu sređenu fotografiju.

Čitamo se uskoro!
