This whole week at college has been Love Week, an entire week dedicated to wooing, dining and flirtatiously coercing your set partner into a marriage which culminates at the end. I was lucky enough to paired with a very easygoing fresher named Jared, a bit of a ladies man but generally funny guy. Monday was spent, catcalling and claiming each other for our own. The efforts were stepped up on Tuesday, with inappropriate and tacky photoshopping, and a romantic dinner for two with the rest of the "couples". Finally on Wednesday, he proposed. My friend and I had gone to beach, to return to find our 'boyfriends', in suit jackets and boardies. They took us out onto the balcony, where they had set up a beautiful candlelit dinner, complete with champagne, chocolates and plastic rings floating in our glasses. Needless to say we were ever so impressed. Even despite the fact that they had already eaten their dinner first, because they had gotten hungry waiting.
And then tomorrow night, the couple with the best proposal will get married! I think my friend Kenny will probably win. He got a group of boys in jackets and guitars to strum along to "I Wanna Grow Old With You" from The Wedding Singer on a balcony, down to his girl, who was standing in a love heart chalked on the road, while he threw rose petals down to her as the sun was setting. It was so gorgeous.
Here are a bunch of outfits taken over the past week. I don't really know to do better outfit shots, the mirror/ selfies are the best I can do at the moment!
