Indulgence Insider #69 – Life Announcements & Engagement Photos

June 4, 2017 by Jeann @ Happy Indulgence | Features, Indulgence Insider


Indulgence Insider is our version of Stacking the Shelves, Bought, Borrowed & Bagged and the Sunday Post, bringing you this week’s haul, bookish news and discussion posts from around the blogosphere!

It’s June and it’s freezing and someone tell me how this happened? THERE’S ONLY 3 months left until my wedding. I’m freaking out.

I have been terrible at responding to blog comments but I’m just getting back into it again. I’m also overdue on some other blogging stuff like MORE GIVEAWAYS and an awkward photoshoot with my brother. More on that later this month.

Bookish highlights

Current Giveaways

So it’s been a busy time here at Happy Indulgence, as it usually is. But when I say busy, I MEAN LIFE-CHANGING BUSY. Let’s have a rundown, shall we?

Aila graduated from high school

We are so incredibly proud of Aila for graduating from high school! She’s on hiatus momentarily because she’s spending Summer over in China.

Jenna is moving to Canada for 3 months

In case you haven’t heard, Jenna is a PhD researcher who is currently completing her research degree, and she gets to jetset all over the world presenting to others. And it just turns out that her latest stint will be in Toronto for 3 months, how exciting! Someone hold me.

Jenna also recapped the All Day YA Event in Sydney, where she saw Sarah Crossnan, Rupi Kaur, Mariko Tamaki and so many other amazing authors!

My engagement photos are here

Now, I couldn’t just tell you it was happening and not show you the goods right? I was so anxious about looking awkward in the photos but WE LOVE THEM SO MUCH. Our photographer just made us feel so comfortable and we relaxed and had a fun afternoon! Except when Toby decided he had enough posing for shots and ran off into the bushes. Toby is not allowed to go off-leash ever again (or at least until he learns).

How was your bookish month?

  1. Cyn @ Bookmunchies

    Ahh congratulations to you all on all those exciting new things!! I love your photos, Jeann! Toby is looking handsome 😉

  2. Topaz

    Oh, the engagement photographs look incredibly beautiful! I'm so glad you had such a lovely day, & that Toby managed to make his way back to safety, haha. 😉 It seems that this has been a week of hectic transition for so many of us — here's to hopefully finding a bright & lovely kind of peace waiting on the other side. xx

    Topaz (Six Impossible Times)

    • Thank you so much Topaz! Haha yeah, we were pretty worried because he bolted across the park but luckily we managed to persuade him to come back. It has definitely been a crazy week, I can’t wait for some peace and quiet! Thank you so much <3

  3. Those photos are just too lovely for words Jeann, the photographer is amazing and it's incredibly how much adoration she could capture with just one image. And look at Toby's dapper little bow tie! Jessie isn't allowed off leash at all. He doesn't listen and has no road sense at all.

    Congratulations Aila! That's wonderful news! Wow, imagine spending your Schoolies in China! Will Jenna be anywhere near Aila while she's on her research assignment? It sounds like it's going to be a super busy time for all three of you. Looking forward to lots of life updates and hope you're all taking good care of yourselves <3

  4. Congrats on graduating high school, Aila! Well done! And Jenna – wow, three months in Toronto for both a lot of work and some fun sounds awesome 🙂 Congratulations again on your engagement, Jeann. You both (and Toby, the little rascall!) look so very happy 🙂
    Have a fantastic week and happy reading.

  5. Aww, Jeann! Your engagement photos are so cute. I love the one with Toby!! Sorry he misbehaved and ran off though. Really glad everything turned out okay ♥

    Congrats to Aila for graduating and I hope the move to Canda goes well, Jenna!!

    Beautiful pictures! And so lovely that you included Toby.

    It seems like May was a bad reading month for everyone, ha, I only got 4 reviews done.

    May the next three months go smoothly!

  7. karaterzis

    Congrats Aila on graduating!! That is a HUGEEE achievement–you should be so proud! Also totally jealous you're moving to Canada for awhile, Jenna. I've ALWAYS wanted to go there! Aw, those photos are so amazing, Jeann! (Also I'm totally thrilled you decided to include Toby in them, haha. So cute! He's so big now!)

  8. Aneesa

    Oh the photos are stunning, I had no idea you were engaged but CONGRATULATIONS!!! I WISH YOU A HAPPY MARRIED LIFE!! (when you get married of course!)

  15. I think I already told you this over on Twitter, Jeann, but these engagement pictures are stunning, I love them – especially the one with all the leaves, it's just SO pretty! I'm so happy for you guys, these next three months are going to pass by in a blur, this is exciting! 🙂
    Congratulations to Aila on graduation, hope she (you, if she's the one reading this!) will have tons of fun in China!
    Also, yay for moving to Canada for 3 months! I'd consider doing a pHD of some kind if I could travel all over the world like that hahaha 🙂
    Wishing you all three a wonderful month! <3

  16. Greg

    You guys have been busy! First of all congratulations on all the milestones/ changes! Beautiful pics! And Toronto is a great city- best of luck with the move and have fun! 🙂

    So much happening and the wedding right around the corner. You are very busy and no surprise you aren't on the blog as much. Lovely engagement photos. You too look perfect together!

    How lovely to see your engagement pics. Thanks for sharing. You make a gorgeous couple

  19. JEANN! Your pictures are GORGEOUS! You both look so happy and lovely. I makes my heart happy ♥♥ And of COURSE Toby had to be difficult. He knows he is cute and can get away with it 😉

    Congrats to Aila on graduation, too, and Jenna on her move! You guys all have such exciting news!

  20. The engagement photos are just SO CUTE, Jeann! (Haha, the fact that you could get Toby to cooperate long enough to take a few pictures is still really impressive.) Also good luck with the final wedding plans. And have a wonderful June! 🙂

  21. Oh, what beautiful pictures! Congratulations again and I hope the wedding goes smoothly as I'm sure it will (you're so organized!).

    Have a great June, Jeann!
