About

Yo, it's Lara aka Rivet Licker. I'm your average alternative, blue haired weirdo, nerd from Sydney, Australia. I'm a 26 year old flesh unit. I haven't really changed my hair since 2012, except the cut. My name is known throughout the fake hair world because I taught a lot of people how to make synthetic dreads, and still do, click on my YouTube link above to see me in all my High Def glory! I used to make and sell dreads, then quit for reasons.
I live with a [stupid] disease called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SYST-EM-IK LOO-PUSS ER-RHYTHM-A-TOE-SUSS), you might think "it's never Lupus", thanks to Dr. House. Well, it's not uncommon and it's a bitch to diagnose (and live with, for that matter).
I'm a huge nerd (no, really). I have studied professional audio in the past and I'm a qualified electronics technician thing, almost like an engineer, but I hate project management. I like physics. the Space Race, geology, sonology and not so much biology.
I still do love Lush, but have opened my horizons into cruelty free makeup,. I don't own or use anything tested on animals (or sold in China, or owned by a profit pushing asshat parent company, except for all the NYX stuff I bought before L'Oreal got to them).
I have a Border Collie called Jack, he's a derpface, he's my #1 dog, but I love all dogs. I am also a volunteer with Sydney Fox Rescue (don't question my ethics or my knowledge on the matter).
My bfflz are important to me, as are my two older, crazy housemates that I just happen to be spawned from, oh yeah, my parents.
I don't update this blog that often, most posts are straight from Instagram, but when I do, it's always about something important or something that impresses me.
I have said enough. Click the "Ask" link, as opposed to the "Ass" link to ask (NOT AKS) me about things.
Any business enquires should be directed to rivetlicker@yahoo.com.au

TL;DR?
Things I post about: Alternative hair, synthetic dreads, DIY and crafting, chronic illness, nerdy things, physics, Star Trek, Lush, makeup, doggies, foxes, pretty things, awesome things and other things.

If you're from the LUSH crowd, you may know me better as "thedigitalprincess"* or "Digi", because I've started to help edit the Lush Wiki.
*I also make music under that name. Oh crap, I'm a musician as well?!

TUMBLR! SYDNEY FOX RESCUE NEEDS YOUR HELP!

The Department of Primary Industries have proposed a Pest Control Order for Red Foxes in New South Wales.  http://www.dpi.nsw.gov.au/agriculture/pests-weeds/vertebrate-pests/pest-animals-in-nsw/fox-control/red-fox
If enacted the Pest Control Order will effectively force THE CLOSURE OF SYDNEY FOX RESCUE. Keeping of foxes in captivity will become illegal. Our current fox families can apply for permits but no future permits will be issued for foxes found after the Order is enacted.  No consideration has been made of the fact we vaccinate, desex and securely house all our foxes and make every effort to assist native animal research and and public education. The ramifications this will have for future orphaned and injured foxes that are found in NSW are insurmountable. 

A little more info about Sydney Fox Rescue:
Sydney Fox Rescue works to remove orphaned and injured fox kits from the wild, they are a conservation-focused organisation and are always ready to assist with wildlife research and community education.  The majority of the animals Sydney Fox Rescue works with are young, orphaned or injured and will eventually be vaccinated desexed and rehomed with members of the community. Sydney Fox Rescue works hard to ensure that all foxes are no longer a threat to our natives or the livestock industry. All foxes are vaccinated to prevent disease, neutered or spayed to prevent breeding and securely housed. Fox owners who adopt through the SFR program gain experience volunteering and under go a training course in fox care. SFR also have stringent requirements for enclosures. Along with our petition: https://www.change.org/p/department-of-primary-industries-nsw-and-the-hon-katrina-ann-hodgkinson-mp-save-sydney-fox-rescue

This is the other #liptar in #authentic that has split and gone rancid. I really love this one.

This is @occmakeup #liptar in #tarred. This is not what it is supposed to look like, and it is not supposed to have split and smell bad. It is rancid. I also have an #authentic from the pro’s picks collection. It is exactly the same. I know I got a dud product. I’m hoping #sephora will honour it and send me replacements. My friend (from Sydney) was in Vegas last week. It has been 5 days since this order was placed. So yeah, this sucks.
@toastybechamel is awesome though. But he managed to get me another lip primer and a #technopagan, so I have two 😝
