Fun Links for a Great Weekend

Fun Links for a Great Weekend

Well hello there! Looking forward to the weekend? I’m certainly looking forward to it. I’m planning to do some catching up with my reading and perhaps a little painting. I feel this inspirational urge that I need to unleash and my white canvas better be ready for me! Ha, ha! Despite all the ongoing “turbulence” around us, there are plenty of interesting events happening around us, sadly none too close to my home. Perhaps some of you may be interested in some of them and of course lucky enough to actually attend them. I have also rounded up some really great links from around the web that make an interesting fun read for the weekend.

Let me start off with Archtober: a celebration of architecture and design events that includes building tours, lectures and parties set to take place across New York City during October 2017. Then there is the Vienna Design Week starting today, September 29th till October 8th. (Just a note: that both the London Design Fair and the Finnish Habitare are over, but I will be posting with some of the most notable highlights). However, I can’t resist to show you today this beautiful sideboard created by British designer Bethan Gray one of the best furniture and lighting products from the LDF 2017.

The NYC Ballet just had its Fall Gala and united the worlds of Ballet and Fashion. Fashion designers designed the ballet costumes that were put in motion. That must have been one pretty sight!

In case you’re in wanderlust mood, then check out both of these: the definitive list of epic drives around the world and 20 legendary day hikes in the national parks. I have added a hike at the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Park, with a moderate difficulty, on my wishlist. Perhaps, one day I’ll make it happen.

These breathtaking natural wonders no longer exist. This post has one heck of a beautiful photo gallery and it is a great reminder of how “small” we all are against nature’s forces.

This video was surprising. An amazing dog helps rescue endangered parrots.

In case you fancy purple then, the Pantone Color Institute has announced a new shade of purple in honor of the late artist.

As I have mentioned a few times in other posts, fashions go around in circles. Leggings and fanny packs are back. Here are 5 things you should never wear with leggings. Personally, I don’t agree with all five, but you’ll be the judge of that 😉

That’s all folks, have a great weekend! xo
