In Luxembourg there is a tradition called "Buergbrennen" which takes place this weekend. It's about making a huge bonfire to symbolically burn winter. The youth club of my hometown thus goes from door to door to sing and get money. As it is the weekend after carnival we all dress up in order to do so. In the evening when the bonfire is being lit all the people from our hometown can come, enjoy a meal and have fun together.
Right now we're about to start our tour through town and I decided to not really dress up but therefore create a 50s inspired makeup. The scarf belonged to my grandma and is just perfect for this purpose. I fixed it with bobby pins and made a fun side pigtail. What do you think? How are you spending your weekend?

  2. Such a cute look! Love the colour of the lipstick. I haven't been to Buergbrennen since childhood. But it's a nice tradition that I have great memories of. I will have dinner with my parents tonight and then chill tomorrow. Have fun!

  4. So interesting to read about the traditions! We also have a tradition of lighting fires. Usually the fires are lit during the carnival but also in some places during the religious procession that occur before Easter.

    You look so pretty! Lovely make up and that bow is really cute!
