These photos are super summery, but they were actually taken just a couple of days before I left for Italy, on a strangely warm winters day in Sydney. I am so in love with this shirt that was sent to me by Sheinside - it's the perfect amount of bizarre, as I've come to expect from the clothing at Sheinside (you can't see it in these photos, but these rabbits are also wearing giant red high-heels. Of course).

Today I will leave you with this awesome image of the blood vessels in the human body, via the Bodies Revealed exhibition. The model is made by the process of "polymer preservation", which involves using liquid silicone rubber to preserve real tissue from human beings. This preservation process can take up to a year to complete.
Because your lungs is where the transfer of oxygen into the blood stream, and carbon dioxide out of the blood stream occurs, there are a lot of tiny blood vessels (called capillaries) hanging around there, as you can see! There is also a lot around your digestive system in the stomach area, to pick up all those nutrients that you consume, and of course, in your brain, to feed all the billions of neurons (and glia) that help you do your thinking!
While showing my boyfriend Luci this blog post, he said: "How do people not just burst all over the floor?? How is there room for anything else!?" It's amazing to think that on top of the blood vessels, there is room for all your cells, proteins and enzymes as well. Look at the head - there is room amongst all those blood vessels for billions of neurons and glial cells (which make up the brain) as well, not to mention that every cell in your body contains about 2 meters of DNA.
The body is really good at compacting things, that's for sure - so don't worry about bursting all over the floor.
I hope that you're all having a beautiful day so far.
