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.”

shit my sister says

  • sister: what's her name? Ariana Grande? That sounds like a Starbucks drink.

Happy Thanksgiving! Here are 5 things that I am grateful for.

1. A loving family that puts up with me every day of the year.

2. A loving boyfriend who treats me so well. He spoils me with his unconditional support and is always treating me to things.

3. All my wonderful friends, both old and new. I know they are always there even though I don’t see them as often. I know they will always hear me out and make me feel better again.

4. An amazing cohort to work through my BEd with this year. We all have each other’s backs. Always.

5. All the other people that I know I can depend on for help. My old teachers for inspiring me and believing that I will be a great teacher. I cannot thank you all enough.

I hope everyone is having an amazing Thanksgiving. Eat tons of turkey!

Sorry I completely missed last week’s 5 little things. :( Here it is though!!

1. Went to work last week and found out I won the staff draw! So I picked this bag (photographed above) as my gift! I was sooo happy since I was going to buy the bag. :D

2. My boyfriend made me dinner! It was a long time promise. So I finally got my mussels and seafood risotto! I was soooo delish!

3. Had a great first visitation day! We even got invited (and went to) the staff gathering at the principal’s house! Had a blast connecting with the teachers. I can’t wait to find out my placement!

4. Tutored these 2 sisters. They just make me smile. And my other student from last year switched dates to be in my class!! :D

5. I can piggyback David. And I have pictures to prove it. Like pick him up, and walk around the coffee table. Can’t do squats because I’m too short and his legs touches the ground.

And that is the five things that made me happy. MORE TO COME!!!! Thanksgiving edition. ;) in like 10 mins.

Dead Sea, Israel
Swimmers float effortlessly in the salt-laden waters of the Dead Sea near Ein Bokek, Israel. Ten times saltier than seawater, the lake is extremely buoyant and a popular destination for holidaymakers. It’s also Earth’s lowest point on land.
