Shadows on me terrace were enough for me to make me get out of  bed, grab homemade raspberry jam and start taking photos of this month's press.
I can say that this was a hella god month! :)
Svet and style weekly magazine is now tradition. Every Monday I'm suggesting what to wear with my other fellow bloggers.
Elle - this was our third fashion test, my very own section in this prestigious magazine which I'm very proud of. You can't blame me. :) We tried festival look, and I approved it! ;) (you can see the whole look in previous post, here).
And last, but not least is my second cover of some magazine! This time, for BPM news, with Morellato campaign! I also ended up on the last page. ;)
Besides this, I made style guide for the accessories with my lady Jelena Karakas, which can be found in BPM news. Our personal favorites, jewelry editorial (photos by my sister Maja and me) , fresh news are main topics in this addition. And I love how it turns out! In some of my future posts, I will show you photos!

No Double Dipper

As sure as eggs are eggs, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has revised its figures yet again.

This time the revision brings some good news, it appears that Britain never had a double dip recession:
"GDP growth between Q4 2011 and Q1 2012 has been revised from a fall of 0.1% to flat, thereby removing the phenomenon of two consecutive quarters of negative growth."
As I have noted many times before it is extremely unwise to rely on figures provided by the ONS, they are always out of date and invariably wrong.

£11.5BN Cuts

The chancellor is to unveil £11.5BN of cuts for 2015/16 to help reduce the deficit.

Local government is expected to be hardest hit.

Watch Osborne's speech live at 12:30 here.

The Dangers Posed By Rising Interest Rates

The Bank of England's Financial Stability reports arises a red flag about the dangers from a rise in interest rates.

The Executive Summary notes:
"In the near term, risks could crystallise if global long-term interest rates were to rise abruptly from current still historically low levels.."
Hidden away in the report itself, the Bank notes that:
"The impact of higher global interest rates on borrowers will depend on the cause of the increase....a significant cohort of UK borrowers could experience financial difficulties if interest rates were to rise during a period of subdued income growth.."
Will interest rates rise?

Sir Mervyn King, thinks not (not at least in the foreseeable future).

Cyprus NOT Seeking Renegotiation of Bailout

Q: When is a renegotiation not a renegotiation?

A: When it is a "tweaking".

Farewell Sir Mervyn

Sir Mervyn King is giving evidence to the Commons Treasury committee for the last time as governor of the Bank of England.

During his valedictory appearance he hinted that Jane Austen will appear on future £10 notes, he also welcomed the responsibility for bank supervision being returned to the Bank of England.

He is no fan of austerity for countries with no other means of promoting growth, and noted that it had been a disaster for those countries; in the meantime QE in the UK, in his opinion, will continue to run for the foreseeable future as will the current low levels of interest rates.

A Nice Little Earner For Barclays

Barclays has decided to start selling on data from its customers to other companies.

The Telegraph reports that Barclays has told savers that it intends to package together "information about the transactions on your account" with data on groups of other customers to compile reports on spending trends across Britain. This could then be passed on other companies or Government departments.

In addition to these changes, which will take effect in the autumn, Barclays will also start tracking customers through their mobile phones or other "devices" allegedly to help protect them from fraud. If a payment is made in a certain country, Barclays will "ping" the customer's mobile number to check if the phone is in that country.

Barclays claims that any customer data it sells would never be sold on in such a way that an individual customers was "identifiable".

Everyone happy with this?

If not, aside from closing your account, there's not much you can do about it; as Barclays is only allowing you to opt out of having your mobile tracked.

Last weekend I wore my new lace espadrilles with black shorts, stripped cardigan and white shirt from this post, but I decided to reverse it and make it simple because of the aztec necklace. Are u doing that with your blouses/t-shirts  too? :)

Greece Stares Into the Abyss Again

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) is preparing to suspend aid payments to Greece by the end of next month unless eurozone leaders plug a €3bn-€4bn shortfall that has opened up in Greece’s €172bn rescue programme, according to a report in the FT.

The shortfall has arisen as a result of a decision by  eurozone central banks not to roll over Greek bonds they hold, and comes amid signs that even the scaled-back privatisation plan Athens agreed to last year is falling behind schedule.

There is still a chance for Greece to receive the next tranche of aid if it manages to reach a deal with the troika before the end of June. However, the coalition government in Greece is on the verge of collapse as a result of its failure to internally agree on how to resolve the crisis caused by the decision to close the state broadcaster.

As ever with bailouts, they are not solutions but merely vehicles for kicking the can down the round and buying time for the incumbent government to resolve the original crisis. In Greece's case there may well soon be no government to hold talks or resolve the crisis.

First of all, I wanna say thank you to all your lovely comments and support! Even if I write thousands times it wouldn't be enough!
And as a second, I wanted to share these photos from Morellato promotion! I was cold, I was shaking, I was sweating but guess what? I survived! :) My face was hunting me almost everywhere, so I had good reason for being silly that night and take drink or two, or four. Who counts? Lots of people, short speech and funny interview made me do that! :) Luckily some of my girls were there to support me! :)
During the night, I had great honor to meet owners of Morellato brand and chat with some lovely people.
Hope that you can feel a little bit of atmosphere despite these blurry photos. You know, I couldn't be a star and the photographer at the same time! ;)
Concerning my look for The night, I choose simple dress from Zara, beloved silver heels to achieve minimalistic look. Of course, cherry on top was Morellato! :)
What do you think, have I made a good choice or not?
