This month has been full of social events, with family and friends, and lots of sun, fun and many cocktails. Not something to be extremely proud of – but I’ll write more about that in tomorrow’s post. For now, enjoy my July photo highlights!
I started the month off with a small conference in Eindhoven, a city in the Netherlands. I’m in the final year of my PhD and my last study was a difficult one. I was glad it was accepted for a presentation at this conference and proudly presented it. Also, the venue was amazing and our name tags were in a bowl of sand. Very cool.
The summer has really started this month so lots of time in the sun with lots of drinks… Here’s my sister-in-law and my boyfriend chilling. Also, my brother-in-law was there but he wants to remain anonymous.
Like I said, lots of social events this month. Here’s my boyfriend in his favorite polo shirt, right before we attended one of his family’s parties.
The next day we had a barbecue at my sister’s house, so more family (and more drinks).
Beautiful sunset on the way home.
I work at home a lot, especially in the summer, but sometimes I need a change of scenery. Here I am at my favorite coffee place, Doppio, reading articles. Much more fun in the sun which a soy cappuccino!
Delicious pasta with grilled veggies (recipe here).
This month I was invited to a book party by one of my favorite Dutch bloggers, Teni Stepanosian. Her blog is fitbeauty.nl and she recently published a book – a great book, beautiful and inspirational. She’s had a pretty tough life and it’s really an inspiration to read her story. Anyway, the book party was amazing, I met so many great people! This is Teni by the way:
That’s it for July! As you can see I love my drinks, which has led me to write a new post about alcohol. It’s easy to drink too much, especially in the summer, which is why you need to be careful with alcohol. It’s a drug after all. Stay tuned for my next post – it’s a very personal one and it’s up tomorrow. My next photo diary will be in September, after my holiday, so see you then!
