I like a good brew, of chamomile.

About

Yo, it's Lara aka Rivet Licker. I'm a true ALTfag/LeGiTNeRdGiRL from Sydney, Australia. I'm a 25 year old carcass. I change my hair often and if I can be arsed, sometimes accentuate it with synthetic dreadlocks or falls. 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 a few years, but now, I'm slowly getting back into it, but on my own terms. I also make and sell cyber falls and custom dyed fringes now days. I do love my DIY!
I live with a [stupid] disease called Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SYST-EM-IK LOO-PUSS ER-RHYTHM-A-TOE-SUSS), you might know it as "the disease it is never", thanks to Dr. House. Well, it's real and it's a bitch to diagnose (and live with, for that matter).
I'm a huge LEGIT nerd. I have studied professional audio and I'm a qualified electronics technician thing, almost like an engineer, but without being a project manager like most engineers end up as. I like physics. A degree in it, do want. I also like, really love Star Trek, because I'm like, a nerd or whatnot. I'm so nerdy, I don't even wear glasses! Well, I do for reading.
I love Lush. I don't work for them and they certainly don't pay me to plug their products. I buy a lot of stuff from there, because, well, I love their products. Most things on here are Lush related, but don't tell anyone, this is supposed to be an "Alt Hair" blog. Shh!
I have a Border Collie called Jack, he's a derpface, he's my #1 dog, but I love all dogs. 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, but when I do, it's always about something I've done recently 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 sales 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, doggies, 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?!

No amount of smiling at a flight of stairs has ever made it turn into a ramp. Ever
Stella Young on why the saying β€œthe only disability in life is a bad attitude,” is bullshit. (via spasticfantastic1995)

No amount of smiling at my jaw has ever made it stop hurting, ever. Actually, it’s quite counter productive.
Stella Young is a BAMF because of her mind and activism, not because she does normal everyday shit whilst being confined to a wheelchair. Take note, ableist turds.

There’s another one on the fence.

#throwbackthursday to 2006. I was helping Jack’s previous owner with her home and garden book, so I painted pots and she took #photos of me doing so.

Picked up a new #bbcream and some heavily discounted #australis #neoncrush #lipcrayons. I’m wearing #noregrets. Off to pick up @theskincareobsessive from a product launch and off for #afternoontea we go! Because I’m also a good friend, I’ll be taking him to the airport too, lol.
