Lazy-crazy-hazy Summer Interview with Lara from Gloopy

Lara is a half of the Gloopy duo, she is a designer and mum to my friend Martin – the most open and friendly 6-year old boy I’ve ever met. In fact, I am in love with the whole family. Read about Lara’s summer, and don’t miss the GIVEAWAY at the end of the post.


Describe your dream summer holiday!

Son, husband, cat & nobody else in a cozy summer house directly on the beach. Sleep a lot. Morning coffee in the shade of my balcony, looking at the sea, with only sound is the splashing of waves and light breeze in the trees. Read books and comic books. Play games with my family, listen to good music and watch good TV shows in the evening. And no work at all!

Where do you really spend you summer holidays?

Punta Scala, small place near Zadar. It’s a cozy summer house directly on the beach, but it gets crowded in the summer. And summer is usually very busy for Gloopy, there is always something to do…

Working on #vacation too. It is easier with #theview #crab #octopus #star #gloopycreatures#lavender #summer

Do you cook or eat out?

I love eating out and I avoid cooking as much as I can. There are great restaurants in Zagreb, so no need to sweat in the kitchen in hot summer!

Fav summer food?

Ice cream and watermelons!

Is it party, party, party or catching up on your reading?

June is the party month, July and August I definitely catch up on my reading (and some TV, to be honest)

How about festivals?

Yes, definitely. June is the music month in Zagreb, great music festival and many concerts! July and August we move south to the seaside, to recuperate.

What is your summer guilty pleasure?


Where was the best summer holiday you ever had?

Last summer I was in Montreal for a week, very non typical summer holiday, very cool and interesting. After that we went directly to the Croatian seaside for a proper hot summer.

Favorite summer spot in Zagreb?

 Kino Europa for morning coffee, Zrinjevac park for a nice walk, Burgeraj or Sherry’s Restaurant for some good food.

Cocktail or lemonade?


What is that one thing you feel you can’t live without this summer?

I have a stack of comic books that are waiting for my attention, can’t wait.
