What's up with these opaque tights requiring mornings, Sydney?
Any chance you could get back on track with a bit more of this? Soonish, if possible.

The audio of those cosmic waves was surreal to listen to and the way they were caught made for some fascinating listening that kept me awake a bit longer than I had intended. I'll be straight with you and say that I struggled with physics at school and everything I learned to get through Year 12 has pretty much been erased from my memory card but the physicists behind LIGO spoke with such plain English passion that my curiosity was sparked and here we are. Posting links to basic astrophysics articles and adding observatory photos to blog posts. Breaks the monotony of the mummy / shopping / tales of the everyday you usually endure around these parts.

The tow LIGO observatories are composed of a few kilometres worth of mirrors and piping that are positioned in such a way as to collect information that can be used to calculate speed differences and other physics related parameters that are explained here.
JLT recently posted a question. I love reader questions and interaction. They make me feel
It's all self directed, I used to do personal training but haven't got the time to do it anymore. Things that have helped me keep at it are:
- the Seconds app for iPhone where you enter the details of you HIIT circuit for example and the app will time and cue you for each exercise and rest period
- mixing the intensity of workouts so even if I feel tired when I start, if something feels 'doable' even if it doesn't get my heart rate up too high, at least I'm moving and I've stuck with it. Hand weights can intensify what looks like a pretty low intensity work out.
- rotating the workouts I do at home
- getting outside when I can
- exercising first thing in the morning because when it's done, it's done.
Things I am thinking of trying:
- easing back into some yoga one day a week
- outdoor sprints.
Things I know aren't for me:
- juice meals / days / diets
- a fit bit
- team sport.
Sorry for the essay, JLT but hope I answered your question.
Returning to my usual blogging realms....
It's technical name is Incandescent light and I am sure it will be of great comfort of you to know that you can purchase the full sized version individually from the Ambient Strobe Lighting range for $55. It's the best on cheekbones (or on that region of your face where you wish your cheekbones showed) as well as under the brow bone. Flattering selfie filter in a compact, readers, flattering selfie filter in a compact.
In breaking news, M has advised me that Dim Light aka the one on the left of the Ambient Lighting palette blurs like a dream. I'm thinking that's going to be the shade I'll be hitting pan on next...
I have worn my Agnes jeans from COH religiously on my days off since they arrived last week.
Mine and Anna's favourite Uniqlo linen dress debuted for the season earlier this week. Before it went and got cold all over again.
And Preschooler SSG's been out and about with his wallet full of play money and credit cards. He was hoping to pay for his gelato with one of his fivers and when I explained why that wouldn't work, he then wanted to pop over to the ATM so that we could use his card. I wonder who he learned that from?
