I dealt with some super annoying traffic this morning.

I visited the doctor to get my sore throat checked out. It’s not fun when you have a sore throat three times in a month: the first time developing into a violent cold, the second time blasting your voice out of existence, and the third time you are determined to get it to piss off. Apart from finding out I have pharyngitis, I also found out something else more interesting!

We were only in Milan for a day because we weren’t as keen on exploring it as we were other cities in Italy. We did need to travel to Milan because of its international airport anyway. This is a pretty quick post, but stay tuned for my Singapore post, which should (finally) be around in the next week!

I’m a bit out of sync with myself, so today’s A Day in the Life is a day late. Oops.

I feel like I’m running out of inspiration for this linkup and don’t know what questions to add. I don’t have any creative ideas right now and I am considering passing the linkup on to someone else because it is starting to feel like a chore, much the same way Amanda was feeling before she passed the linkup responsibilities to me.

If you are interested in taking the linkup over or can give me some ideas, let me know. 🙂

There hasn’t been an outfit post shot in Sydney since we got back from Europe, but here’s one, finally. I was glad Seb could take the time out for this outfit, which features my brogues from Italy, and a close-up of my engagement ring. Of course, I love the ring, but the brogues are pretty cool too, haha. 😉

Have you ever tried catching up with literally all your friends in the space of a few weeks? I’m trying that right now, and it’s been a lot of fun, to be honest!

Nick and I have joined a gym again, it was his sister’s birthday last week, and we went to a really awesome Bob Evans gig as well. I might be catching up with all my friends right now, but this post is your chance to catch up with me. 😄

We visited Rome towards the end of June on our trip to Europe. I’m not sure what the Romans actually do in Rome, but we did visit many of the buildings that were a huge part of their lives. I think it’s amazing that the old buildings still stand. There’s nothing really like that in Sydney, which might explain why I find it so interesting.

Compared to other cities we visited, I didn’t leave Rome with the feeling of wanting to really come back. On the flip side, I feel like it actually had the most sights and experiences that I enjoyed. The Colosseum is a must-see, as is Vatican City, but they were not my favourite parts of the trip…

Pop-up books really bring a story to life for a child. They can be very simple and you can make them yourself, but sometimes it is amazing just how complex they can be. One of my personal favourite parts was when there were other ways to interact with the story, like through pull tabs or openable doors/windows.

Feel free to ask more questions in the comments, otherwise, enjoy.

Despite being ill, I’m getting better quite quickly. I’ve recapped the month of July with my usual format, and given a little update on things in general. Since I missed posting a Fashion Friday Q&A last Friday, that’ll happen this Friday, so I’m still accepting questions.

There is a little surprise under the July achievements, too.

Remember that time two months ago when I was ill?

Here we go again.

I went to San Diego for a work trip last week, where we had conferences for two days straight. I was only there for about three whole days, but dealing with the jet lag as well as keeping up with the conferences was a little too much for me to handle, and now I’m not feeling very good at all.
