On Location In Croatia: Get Cheeky With Lisca Swimwear

This one was fun to do, lots of fun actually. Didn't mind at all.  I also sort of felt like doing this one because of a remark from a non-bikini/swimwear type lady recently.... (There's tons and tons of those kinds of people around here, they're scary. I'm temporarily located in cowboy country where there really are no cowboys, except for 1 week in July)..... at the Safeway supermarket. She took a look at my tattoos, my sunglasses pulled up over my head, looked at my non-Levi's/non-Wrangler jacket in the cart, and smugly told me me that "You're not gonna get a job here"..(She thought I was going to ask for an application because I had a pen in my hand too) lifelong dream was immediately crushed and I haven't eaten or slept since, my dream of also becoming a rodeo clown and beef jerky taste tester were gone in a flash...and I only came for some hot n spicy deli meat, which nobody has heard of.  (Even just mortadela is very hard to find in these parts, I couldn't even find a real good quality horseradish to go with my roast beef, instead it's some kind of horseradishy cream sauce that has a strange taste that reminds me of a sweet cream with a donughty horseradish aftertaste) and some real European style bread. lol  I was so looking forward to wearing those name tags and aprons though, chuckling with my new groceteria pals, going to the next door always womanless bar n grill to talk about that new powerdrill, rumored new chip dip flavor coming out and about the upcoming Calgary Stampeder's football game against the wimpy gas-less, oil-less and cowboy hat-less B.C Lions....and of course pointing out to people which aisle the laxatives or beef jerky are at. (I don't think this blog post will interest her or her crowd at all) Geez, if all the serb women coming around on purpose to ignore me by coming in with those downtown grubby drug dealers, and with the those slobs with stained tees and snot running out of their nose wasn't a joy enough, traveling to the different places to chat and talk on purpose in front of me with the most obese, dirty and disheveled hair person they could find. (Ok, I get it, you prefer smegma and doritos stained underwear and breath oh well. I'll not wash my dick for 3 weeks just to make you happy next time. Word had gotten out that I was the guy who walked into a couple of downtown Starbucks coffee shops with a couple souvenir Croatia stickers on my laptop. Once even wore a Croatia soccer jersey, the hubris of it all that it was not any other jersey or a Vojelsav Seselj tee) Little did I know until later, that it was the pissing grounds of the local serboid fuckos. It was their serbo-turf you see. It was their coffee shop to go and do whatever it is that they flap their lips about, it was their place to go to the washroom and to wipe their fat and hairy ass. How dare I show up in their turf coffee shop and sit there at a table with my laptop, right there in a chair in public in downtown Calgary. How dare I walk in their all thin-like with my Diesel jeans and hip looking collared shirt and a ponytail, smelling like Hugo Boss and beer belly-less. "Who the fuck does this guy think he is?..walking in here without a suit and tie on a Saturday and sitting there drinking his coffee with some Croatia soccer stickers on his laptop? This means war. (although I wore a suit and tie Mon-Fri for my job at that time on the other side of town)

Anyway, I had no problem sifting and checking out all the images and videos related to this fashion line and purveyor of lingerie, bikinis, nightwear etc, that was shot in Croatia. I'm not going to translate any articles on this one. Just putting some text from the Sisca website and a few videos. (Too many hot pics to choose from too, my eyes were going blurry) I noticed also that I've done quite a few fashion related additions over the last little while, more than I had planned.  Oh well, If it's Croatia related and I find it interesting..... But from what I read, the "Sisca" brand is quite well known and popular in that part of Europe, and has been featured in numerous designer and fashion events, and of course those fashion shows, catwalks...all that. They also have a men's and  kids lineI noticed.

The vids I added from the photoshoots were shot on location in Croatia and have some nice local scenery in the background,  and from the looks of it some of the photos too. Bonus. Like I said, I had no problem checking out the links related to this one.  Can you imagine working for places like this.  "Quick, grab your stuff, I need you to go to Krk and  interview the models at the Sisca bikini photoshoot!" or "Quick! Grab an extra large cappuccino! I need you to sift through all these lingerie pics and bla bla bla!"...How simply terrible. Anyway, here's an intro to the Sisca brand. Even if you live in a non-swimwear city such as myself, it still might be a good idea to grab one of these cool designs and keep it in the closet, it might come in handy sometime., or you can just stand there and admire it hanging there in the closet, take photos of them in the closet and upload them to Facebook and Twitter.  Show all your friends. Tell them how great it looked on you in the mirror. You can click on the links or visit their webiste HERE for way more stuff...
