The caption describes the life of this ‘salt lamp Sarah’ and says she claims her body is a temple but will drink Red Bulls, call her ex as she drives down his street, vape more than she water drinks.
It goes on to say ‘she drinks almond lattes after a hectic ketamine session the night before and spends her Sunday morning at Bay Run cafe in Gymshark crop tops after a boozy night out.

This follows Sunday’s announcement by NSW Prime Minister Gladys Berejiklian that the state is gearing up to have 70 percent of the population vaccinated by September.
‘If you get to 50 percent vaccination, 60 percent, 70 percent, you get more freedom. We can turn this around in four weeks,” she said.
NSW’s vaccination rate is about 15 percent for those who received both shots and 32 percent received only one dose.
But with 82,000 doses spread over 24 hours and 4.5 million more Pfizer shots delivered to Australia in August, federal health officials are confident NSW could carry out about 650,000 vaccinations per week.
This follows the federal government’s botched Covid-jab rollout, with plans being made for the AstraZeneca to run most of the vaccination program.
While Australia lacked a viable alternative injection after the federal government failed to obtain sufficient doses of Pfizer, those issues will soon be resolved.
Those plans were muddled in April when Australia’s Technical Advisory Group on Immunization recommended that only people over 50 should receive the shot due to the extremely low risk of developing blood clots.
With the highly contagious Indian Delta strain sweeping through Sydney, ATAGI advises over-18s to talk to their GP about getting AstraZeneca.

Ms Berejiklian stated that increased vaccination coverage could be the answer to lifting the lockdowns.
‘There is no place in the world that has been able to live with the Delta virus and not have a higher vaccination rate. We have to be very clear about that,” she says.
“We want this to be the last lockdown we have and we can make that happen if we get vaccinated.”
