“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.”

I can’t describe the crazy amount of endorphins I’ve been feeling these past 2 months. From moving into my new home with @tofuepik, changing my diet, adding more lifting and taking on more responsibilities for work, becoming more close to my mom and having @thejoysofverass being my very first personal trainer…even with all the cravings and some emotional roller coaster I go through from thinking about food all the time I can not believe the progress I am making. My muscles are growing and the fats are slowly melting away. I switched up my habit by looking at myself in the mirror and loving myself instead of stepping on the scale and hating myself. Strive for progress and you will be much more happier than going for society’s standards of what you should look like. I have ways to go and I genuinely look forward to the day I am ready. ♡♡

New pendant addition to the family. This pendant will help me push through my journey by helping me be more in tune with my concious & body. While keeping me on a consistent flow of new ideas for work. 1-3 trees get to be planted in the American forest. ♡


♢ Labradorite is regarded as a highly mystical and protective stone, and is often used by healing arts practitioners as a barrier against negative energies released during treatment. It is thought to facilitate powerful shifts in consciousness, helping to connect with higher energy in the present while imparting the strength and perseverance necessary to clear past difficulties and traumas. Labradorite calms an overactive mind and energizes the imagination, bringing up new ideas and balancing the rational mind with deeper esoteric insight.♢

Finally purchased my very first pinecone pendant from @thirdeyepinecones. For so long I wonder what I can do to give back to Mother Nature and what non-profit organization I can trust to help me give back. The founder’s story is an inspiration and I could not agree more about living a truthful life while still being in touch with nature and it’s energy. For every pinecone pendant I buy, 1-3 trees are planted in the American Forests in areas of the country that have been negatively impacted by logging, wildfire, or pollution. I gravitated towards this pinecone naturally when I first laid my eyes on it. This is Blue Kyanite. This stone is for attunement, dream recall, & meditation, instilling a sense of tranquility while providing greater awareness & intuition. Also known for its ability to align chakras and never retains negative energy. ♡

My very first #WCW goes out to my momma. Coming to America with no education but managed to give my brothers and I a very comfortable life through hard work and the love she has for us. Her and I use to butt heads, it was the worse relationship and mother & daughter can have between each other. After being in college when I did something so terrible, it wasn’t then until I realized my mom will forever, be my mom. She is irreplaceable.  It took some time to heal our relationships but I would not change what we have now. I want nothing more than to be able to give back and take care of her ♡ Let her live a good life not having to work a single day, send her off onto vacations. Before I use to ALWAYS ignore her phone calls because I was annoyed of her. Now I’m the one calling her on a daily basis to check up on her or just to say I Love You mommy. Also, she is the prime example of having migraines and pain in her body due to so many prescription drugs the doctor would give her (she also had surgery in her head cus of a popped vein) and would call me because of her pain. I started giving her Honey Tincture from work (cannabis product) and told her to put a couple of drops in her water every night before bed time. For a month now she has not called about her migraines. in fact, she has been in a much HAPPIER mood. My mom and I joke around all the time now and she is proud of me. She has opened her mind up to cannabis and is open to alternative healing. I call her everyday to make sure she drinks it. I could not be any happier. Seeing her HEALTHIER, brings more joy than what money can buy. I can’t wait to stop her from taking all of the prescription drugs, they are POISON and I refuse to let it shorten her life! ♡

Shoulders, Biceps, Triceps..grow babies grow! ♡ Haven’t been sick since last year so and with the new move I have not had a chance to meal prep nor worked out for 2 days Dx Thanks to my new plan from @thejoysofverass I am really looking forward to a transformation ^_^ Love the feeling when my muscles want to burst through my skin♡

We have been sleeping on the floor in our new home & we can slightly feel it taking a toll on our bodies (now that we’re both sick). Having a hard time sleeping & waking up to drive up to Mendocino was very, hard to do :( But during the drive the scene was so beautiful, driving through Napa and seeing the many farms with grapes and visioning our farm to be that size & even bigger! When we arrived we felt so much better, it’s most likely because of us being surrounded by nature. This was our very first time being at our farm & the experience was better than what we had imagined. We believe in flowers that are grown outdoor, to be more happy than indoor grown. When you see how happy they are with natural sunlight you know that it’s energy is going to be within you and you can feel it’s happiness from the way it’s been grown. We feel very lucky to be apart of this growth within a company. To be apart of a blooming industry, something that can help make this world a much better place in the future and save our trees in every way possible (of course it would piss off many companies that depend on those along with cotton). We can’t find a better job that suites us both perfectly. To love what we do & do what we love. From being inspired by this motto & to now actually living it.♡

My adventure buddy♡
He consistently reminds me of the pure energy of the rave community and how plur started before everything is the way it is today. Even with the scene being so mainstream and no longer the way it use to be thanks to him and the community we are apart of that keeps us loving the scene and continuing to attend events. Taking care of each other and creating dance circles and showcasing talents, literally going for the music and good vibes creating friendships all around. It was refreshing coming with the outfits we had on and giving people nostalgic flash backs of the good ol’ days. Keep the energy alive♡ We can only continue to spread positive energy and hope that the scene can go back to the way it use to be. Or at least, keep plur ALIVE.
