I know it's something of a faux pas to crap on about the weather in a blog post... but seriously, today was like nothing I have ever experienced before (outside of sauna rooms, and they at least feature an EXIT sign). These photos were taken yesterday when it was a reasonable temperature - it then proceeded to rise by 20 whole degrees ensuring it was a ridiculous 43 degrees by today (I'm talking Celsius people)! I'd intended to write this post some hours ago, but the heat also apparently melted the internet - it's been down all day. That coupled with constant bushfire warnings/threats, and I haven't had the most fun day ever. I have no idea how anyone lives in places where their summer is like this every single day.
A nice thing I did yesterday, though, was to go op-shopping in a country town! For any serious op-shoppers/thrifters reading this, you will know that country town charity stores are gold. They don't attract the flocks of hipsters that city stores do, or the ridiculously marked-up prices. I filled two massive plastic bags with vintage goodies for $30 - and in these bags I managed to squeeze around 30 or so items, so I'm pretty happy with that! This blouse and belt you see me wearing are just two of my finds.
Then, there is this amazing Bambi skirt (which I've been eyeing ever since posting it on my fashiolista account a month ago) and this necklace sent to me by Sheinside! Both are such awesome statement pieces.

Atoms, the units which make up all matter, while containing protons, neutrons and electrons, are basically 99.9999% empty space (although you don't fall through a chair when you sit on it because of something called the "Pauli Exclusion Principle" - read one of my readers comments below if you want to know more about that.)
So anyway, here's the point - if you were to take all the empty space out of atoms, you could fit all of humankind into something the size of a single sugar cube.
Or so say some physicists. If anyone knows if this is truly the case and who exactly made this calculation, I would love to know.
I'm now going to go back to monitoring the cold front move towards the beach I'm staying at! It should hopefully arrive here by midnight :( I CAN'T WAIT.
Hope you're all somewhere nice and cool,
