I’ve been trying to calm my Thanatophobia, which has been pretty heavy these last couple of weeks, probably just from normal adult stresses, illness stresses and random stuff. So to try and step away from it I have been thinking about the Universe. How big and mysterious it is and how insignificant I am in the grand scheme of things. Weird that this helps, trust me, I know, but it really does.
I listened to the Stephen Hawking audio book “Brief Answer to the Big Questions” and loved it, it made me feel both intelligent and incredibly stupid at the same time. But it helped. And I could honestly listen to it all over again. I am so glad I signed up to Audible and can’t wait to get my next book credit this month.
Anyway, while cleaning my desk I found a packet of some old but awesome temporary tattoos that Jordandene used to send out with their shirts and I decided that I wanted to wear The Truth is Out There and these gorgeous Eagle Nebula nail wraps from Espionage Cosmetics, this weekend. The tattoos are still good and if i ever stopped being a complete wimp and ever considered getting a permanent tattoo, these might be right up my street.
“Approximately 7,000 light years away from Earth in the constellation Serpens is a young, open cluster of stars commonly called the Eagle Nebula. It contains several active star-forming dust and gas regions, one of which, the Pillars of Creation, is pictured on these wraps.”
These glow in the dark too with some spacey spatters and the glow is pretty strong. If I move my hand in front of them right now, even though it is daylight, I can see the glow super well, just in the shadow of my hand.
Look at the beautiful level of detail in this wrap! I also bought some cheap macro lens filters for my camera because I don’t see myself ever affording the £160-£200 for a proper macro lens but I am quite chuffed with how well these work.
Lucky for you, these wraps are still available to buy, you can grab them here for $10 and don’t forget, if you spend $25+ you can use code PLUS10KAPOW for 15% off your order. While you’re there, go check out the sale section where you can grab wraps from as little as $5.
Where all my alien believers out there? I 100% believe in aliens! I believe that we would be completely naive to think that we are the only intelligent life in the Universe and there could be many, many potential reasons why they have not visited Earth yet. Or at least, why we do not know of them yet. I am however, unsure if intelligent life managed to travel to Earth, that they would be consumed with bum probes and memory wipes, it wouldn’t be on the top of my list if I discovered a new life form on a different planet, just saying. Although, I do enjoy watching TV shows about ‘abductions’ and conspiracy theories. What is your opinion?
