Week in Pictures

  1. I got to use my new purse from Italy as a “go-to-class” bag! The orange color is so much fun and goes with a surprising number of outfits. Get your own, in brown, here.
  2. One of my fellow Ken-Exers did my nails this week. You can’t really tell from the photos but it’s a french manicure with red and purple sparkles. I felt very Kate Spade with that color combo.
  3. I worked on my creative writing project…a lot. For Kenyon Seminar we are writing a creative project about anything we want due in May. The catch is that our notebooks, where we record all of our background info for the writing, are due next Thursday. My project is set in Victorian England (real surprise there!) and is set in an insane asylum.  I’ve been spending a lot of time with “Ripperature” to get a feel for madness in the Victorian era. Here’s an interesting online source I found about opium usage in the 1800s.
  4. Who knew doing laundry could be so complicated? I washed my clothes today only to find out that the dryers were all broken. Let me tell you, two loads of wet laundry hanging around a room make it feel like a sauna, or maybe just June in Kentucky. Eventually the dryers started working and I carted everything back to dry–just another typical study abroad experience!


Signing off for now,

  1. Alexandra,

    When you mentioned Ripperature, I just had to tell you that I read The Devil in the White City over break, and it is the best book that I had read in a long time! I was especially intrigued by all the cultish fascination with Jack the Ripper that was going on in America at the time. I forget, have you read that book?

    Glad that all is well and you are still your irrefutably stylish self!
