Lizard People & Extremophiles

Guess where my awesome new lizard-print shirt is from. Some fancy boutique? A reptile museum gift-shop? Nope, guess again!
In fact, it's a boys "ages 8-9" shirt that I got for $3 in an op-shop the other day. This is a reminder to any thrifty people out there that you mustn't restrict yourself to your own clothing section when thrifting! Whenever I go thrifting, I always make sure to look in the children's section just in case I find something amazing like this lizard shirt. And apparently, apart from the sleeve length, I am a perfect fit for a boys size "ages 8-9" anyway so I guess I should shop in that section more often, haha.
shirt is thrifted | skirt is thrifted | socks are from a market stall | shoes are no longer for sale

Prepare to be amazed by the toughest creature on Earth - a teeny tiny (and quite adorable) little creature that is known as an "extremophile", meaning that it can thrive where most other creatures can't - such as in volcano vents, super hot temperatures, or under extremely high pressures.

Some theories of the origins of life on Earth include panspermia - that life originated elsewhere, on another planet, and traveled to Earth through space with the help of a meteorite - and extremophiles, some of which are able to survive in the freezing vacuum of space, give such theories credibility.

Have a watch:


I hope you're all having a great day!

  5. That is amazing! I had a superman tshirt I got in the boys section years ago, so I know what you mean. These days the presence of boobs kind of makes that impossible... lol. However, kids shoes - totally works for me and my tiny feet!

  7. Ultimate outfit goals!!
    Too much speculation, I concur with said theories; that, most undoubtedly, life originates from the beyond... in outer space. And these 'Lizzard People' bring to mind the Draconians or 'reptilians'.
