Cruising the Nile for 4 days seems like it never happened. Going to small villiages to see how the native people did their everyday activites and seeing a hippo in the water. The sand storm while at the pyramids and getting sunburnt no matter the amount of sunblock worn and having to wear Drew's hat to keep my nose from burning everyday.
Being in Cairo to Alexandria in 2 hours and a new hotel every night and upon returning back to Cairo and the Movenpick, feeling that we were home. Ordering spaghetti from room service at 2 in the morning and giggling all night long. Starting a trip with 42 relative strangers and sharing a life changing experience with them.
I think the drastic tempature change now had me thinking back to be too hot all the time. Being in the warmest place I had ever been and now am freezing already wearing 2 tank tops, a tshirt, sleeveless hoodie and sweatshirt on top. I look like the marshmellow man. I miss the blazing heat right now but it may only because it is so insanely cold in our apartment because the front window is broken.
I want to go back to Egypt.
I wore my new boots today for the first time today and I love them! They looked so cute!
I am in the process of sewing a good bit of bags and scarves and will post them soon. I am feeling so creative and full of ideas and hope that they all come out the way I am planning them to come out. I hope you are enjoying the weather!
(they are however, sold out of the cognac color on sm's website.)
This week will contain two tests and a presentation all of which I am not interested in doing at all. Keeping the symmarians, asyrians, etruscans and egyptians all seperate in my mind is not easy and I am having quite the trouble with it. Tomorrow will be interesting with one of those tests and a presentation. The lack of motivation that I am suffering from is probably just senioritis and I should just suck it up but my last semester is KILLING ME. I am so ready to be done with school and I have 3 months left.
Graduation announcements are also in the design process. Since I am not going to participate in the commencement excersizes, I am opting out of the normal route of the school themed announcements and designing them myself so that they are fully customized and represent me. Hopefully they come out well and I like them enough to send to my entire family and friend base.
I follow Womens Wear Daily and Fashion Watch, which is out of D.C. and have been getting great updates from both of them. While Fashion Night Out was going on, I was able to keep up with the designer cook off that was taking place at Bergdoff Goodman, hosted by Top Chef's own Padma and that the Olsen twins were serving cocktails to a big crowd further down the floor. Oh, I love the Olsen twins. Suprise!
Have a great day!
My wardrobe is all basics, therefore a belt can be added to anything. My favorite layering piece is an American Apparel dress that is so basic, simple and versatile. It comes in around 26 different colors and I wear them with jeans, tights and boots and even sneakers. Perfect.
