Weekend + Links

Friday, February 1, 2013



Have a wonderful weekend you guys! The highlight of my weekend will be dressing as an eskimo and taking part in Fasnacht in a village called Stans. I'm so excited that Fasnacht (carnival) is here!! It's definitely my favorite time of the year - seeing people's costumes, marching band music everywhere. I've always been so bad at covering this for the blog but I will make an extra effort this year because it's so incredible and different and such a fun part of Swiss life. What are you up to?!

Interesting Links around the web

+ The last 5 minutes of NPR's interview with Maurice Sendak illustrated. So beautiful.
+ Was Vogue's Hurricane Sandy photo shoot inappropriate?
+ Interesting take on food/tastes/flavors.
+ Bird ballet 

Village Links you may have missed

+ My top 8 Valentines Card picks 
+ Must have bracelet
+ Pics from our flat
+ Whimsical Etsy shop for kids
+ Yay or Nay: Fitness monitors?
+ Amazing Pinterest food try
+ 6 amazing sweatshirts to own

stans is awesome for fasnacht, i think it should be covered as its more swiss than the luzern one.

Fasnacht sounds absolutely lovely! I love the photo you picked to illustrate:)I guess I'll be doing a lot of snow showeling this weekend, but I'll take my husband out for a drink tonight, and tomorrow we'll have pizza and watch a movie:) Have a great weekend and enjoy Fasnacht!

Sounds really fun! Have a fab weekend x

Ah, there you are taunting me with that sweatshirt...you know i can't resist tie dye!!!

I agree that it was a tacky shoot...I live at the Jersey Shore and there is so much destruction here it is not cool to glamorize it with high end fashion...a little more compassion for people who have been living in hotels and aren't able to go home for months and months would have been nice.

Yeah I want to hear more about this Swiss festival I've never heard of before!

And OH MY! That was very insensitive, even for Vogue.

FASHION TALES said...

Sounds like a great plan, hope you enjoy your weekend. Thanks for the links. xx/Madison

I don't own any sweatshirts, and I probably should...
And the Vogue shoot - in really poor taste, and the aesthetic isn't even appealing.

Andi of My Beautiful Adventures said...

Have the best time!!!

Amanda said...

Looking forward to your Fasnacht coverage! It's so Swiss but un-Swiss at the same time, right?

Anouka said...

Fastnacht is also something that is celebrated around where I live. But I don't get dressed up ;)

Ha I just checked out those Vogue pictures - it is a bit inappropriate and not exactly the best way to celebrate the NYC and New Jersey heroes

Annie said...
