of lonely hearts, spilled beers & melted icecreams

“A young woman was restrained, force-fed and injected with cosmetics in a high street shop window as part of a hard-hitting protest against animal testing.
Jacqueline Traide was tortured in front of hundreds of horrified shoppers in a bid to raise awareness and end the practise.
The 24-year-old endured 10 hours of experiments, which included having her hair shaved and irritants squirted in her eyes, as part of a worldwide campaign by Lush Cosmetics and The Humane Society.
The disturbing stunt took place in Lush’s Regent Street store, one of the UK’s busiest shopping streets.
Jacqueline appeared genuinely terrified as she was pinned down on a bench and had her mouth stretched open with two metal hooks while a man in a white coat force-fed her until she choked and gagged.
The artist was also injected with numerous needles, had her skin braised and lotions and creams smeared across her face.
Passers-by were gobsmacked to see Jacqueline, a social sculpture student at Oxford Brookes University, forced to have a section of her head shaved.
The gruesome spectacle aimed to highlight the cruelty inflicted on animals during cosmetic laboratory tests and raise awareness that animal testing is still a common practise.
The Humane Society International and Lush Cosmetics have joined forces to launch the largest-ever global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics.
The campaign, launched to coincide with World Week for Animals in Laboratories, is being rolled out simultaneously in over 700 Lush Ltd shops across forty-seven countries including the United States, Canada, India, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea and Russia.
Lush campaign manager Tamsin Omond said: “The ironic thing is that if it was a beagle in the window and we were doing all these things to it, we’d have the police and RSPCA here in minutes.
“But somewhere in the world, this kind of thing is happening to an animal every few seconds on average.
“The difference is, it’s normally hidden. We need to remind people it is still going on.”

"my specialty is sticking my heart in places that it doesn’t belong. i love people too much or not at all and i can tell you so many stories about times that i’ve fallen in love with boys on public transit just because i accidentally read their texts and saw that they were wishing their fathers goodnight.

i put my love into ideas that only last as long as the people who came up with them and i put my love in corners of stores with mannequins that have mismatched clothing but still look so good, i put my love in all the wrong places— or so i’ve been told.

i fall in love with everything, i have spent whole years crying over the beauty i see in calendars and the way that the pavement looks like a rainbow after it rains i have spent months caring more than i should about people who gave me the time of day once even if it was not the time that i needed and people who i fell in love with because they bothered to ask me how my day was, i have cried so much more than i have ever needed to because i have never understood why i am the one who loves more and i never learn my lesson but i will not apologize for the way my eyes light up at little things like birthday cakes and striped sweaters i am okay with loving so much because at least i have enjoyed the things that have hurt me before they had the chance to hurt me—i am telling you, love is like getting food poisoning from your favorite dish at a Chinese restaurant. enjoy the taste of your hot and sour soup before it burns you and keeps you up all night, twisting your stomach into knots and causing you to wonder how something you like so much could ever make you anything but happy.”
