Happy Friday and Easter Weekend, what are you up to? Our travel plans this w/e are a huge fail - we were meant to go to Amsterdam but the overnight trains were full because we waited too long to book them...oopsy! So, instead we'll avoid the easter crowds (huge plus), grill out with friends, visit Lausanne and maybe plan our next travels a bit better!



*This David Thorne email skit thing is one of the funniest things I've seen in awhile. 
I don't even know how to explain to you what it is, but it's funny.

* It Get's Better (a must see)
Is a video filmed by Apple employees that encourages kids who are being bullied, who are gay, transgender, etc - that it will get better. I wish everyone could see this!

* Fran Domínguez (a photographer)
His photos are with such attitude...it's not about the girl really, "but a lifestyle" he says. Would be fun to have a feisty photo shoot with him!

*A Watch
Seriously considering this.

*Blog Tips
A list of 369 blog tips, tricks and resources. Did you find anything good?

* a lovely, little shop spring sale
15% off your order with the code LOVELYSPRING! (I'm waiting for this to arrive)

I can think of worse places to spend my Easter weekend! Amsterdam awaits...!

Thanks for the links - you're so resourceful!

May I ask a specific question? Have you discovered any handmade, non-exhorbitant, "craft fair" type events in Luzern/Zurich. Probably too late for my upcoming trip but perhaps for the future. Cheers!

Your backup plans sounds almost better than your original plan! Not that Amsterdam isn't fabulous. I love it there. But it's nice that you won't have to deal with the Easter crowds :)

Is that e-mail skit real??? hahahaha. Oh man, that was messed up and hilarious. The part about the horse and calling it Steven...haha. I lost it.

I liked the "It Gets Better" video, on a more serious note.

Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

The weekend is shaping up to be a bit boring over here. Yucky weather, plus my boyfriend is moving again on Tuesday and is spending Friday night shredding paper as I type. Blah. Enjoy your grills and friends! ; )

hi girl :)
Hope you had a great weekend...
Just tweeted your post....

Have a great day,

Maggy said...

ok, re: the watch. I definitely see that the gold watch on women thing is IN. I have been trying to picture myself in one/is that just trendy/it looks good on girls for sure...and then THAT with the tortoise shell! It's fabulous and you have my vote, given that if you get it - you post/model it.

Alena said...

That watch is fabulous and such a great price too. Also, I love that Etsy shop - such beautiful items!

Lynn {hearted girl} said...

holy heavens! that watch is retro chic and so cool! love the tortoise shell look and can see why you're all over it. gotta spend some time to go through the blog tips, excited!!!! thanks for linking me up lades, i can always use some more info in my arsenal.

sorry the train trip didn't work out but it sounds like a swell time anyways and like you say; there's always another plan to make for a later date!

um, like that exhibit in October you'll get to see, sounds awesome. our Easter was mainly today, brunch with mom, Sean & good ol' uncle. very nice and my tummy has been happy all day! cheers to a wonderful week. ♥

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

a BIG thank you for the link to blog tips!!! :D
Hope your easter was a great one - avoiding the crowds would've been a major plus I'm sure!
Mine was spent in Melbourne - I couldn't get to my family in Adelaide because I had to work. Was a little sad to be away from them. It also happened because I too stuffed around with travel bookings. Ooops :P
Lets do better at organising ourselves next time huh!
xx

Tracey said...

Yep, I need to do some serious planning for our next trip ... especially after our plans to go to Japan have now fallen through.

I hope you had a lovely Easter!! :D
