These awesome science and math inspired cutting boards can be found at Elysium Woodworks!

Cooking is just carefully-applied, delicious chemistry, so you might as well use as much science as possible when you’re in the kitchen!

I HAVE to get one of these!!!!

I need one!

As a person, I don’t like goodbyes. “See you” is different. I would want to sit in my car the day after the final episode and think, “I know it’s over, but I can kind of imagine where everybody is. I can still feel these people I loved. They’re not gone. They are just right next door to me in another universe.” Joel Wyman

This is amazing #fringe

My Top Ten Hair Oils:

Some  of you new naturals are still getting to know which oils do what and when, so I just wanted to make a quick list of my favorites!

Most Penetrative: Coconut Oil
Coconut Oil is the only oil with the  ability to completely penetrate your hair shaft, which means it works best without water as a moisturizer and a protective oil. Many naturals use this oil as a pre-poo to prevent hygral fatigue. Coconut oil is amazing when it comes to preserving the natural proteins within your strands.
Most Protective: Grapeseed Oil
Are you a curly/kinky gal or guy who loves to straightening your hair? Grapeseed Oil is definitely for you! With it’s high smoke point of 450F, Grapeseed Oil can protect your strands from most blow-dryers, flat-irons, and hotcombs. A little goes a long way, so you can be sure this miracle oil will stick around for awhile.
Most Beneficial Essential: Tea Tree Oil
Tea Tree Oil is a heaven’s blessing. Anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, and great for circulation! Many natural shampoos will contain a good amount of this little oil because of its extreme cleansing properties. If you get build up on the scalp, this oil will fix it in a jiff!
Most Bang For Your Buck: Canola Oil
I know what you’re going to say— cooking oil? Yes, hon COOKING OIL is good for your hair! If you’re up for the challenge, using canola oil as a hotoil treatment can drastically reduce frizz, breakage and tapering! Canola oil contains protein so it will help rebuild your strands bit by bit!
Most Stimulating: Peppermint Oil
If you like to “feel” your products at work, just add a little bit of Peppermint Essential Oil and you’re good to go. Peppermint has all the benefits of Tea Tree with the added cooling sensation you get with gum! Add to your shampoo or just rub a little on your scalp to increase circulation and growth.
Most Hair Growth: Jamaican Black Castor Oil / Castor Oil
Nuff’ said. Veterans and newbies alike SWEAR by this oil. I might be biased but I achieve a good .75-1 inch a month in length thanks to this oil. Not to mention it softens your strands without adding buildup to the scalp or your ends. Detangling has never been easier for me! 
Most Balancing: Jojoba Oil
Jojoba Oil mimics hair sebum in a way other oils are unable to do. For those that don’t know sebum is what gives our hair its coating, shin, luster and… well everything! If you’re a kinky or curly girl you may notice our hair isn’t quick to get oily as compared to our straight haired counterparts. This is because sebum often gets trapped above our hair’s various twists and turns. Depending on who you are your ends may be left dry and crunchy due to this lack of lubrication. If you’re wearing of oily residue try jojoba oil! It gives all the moisture benefits of the above oils whilst maintain a dry and natural feel. It’s got wonderful softening qualities too!
Most Pleasant Smelling: Vanilla Oil
This oil doesn’t do much in the way of skin and hair but it smells WONDERFUL. And what person doesn’t want to smell wonderful? Slip a little into your conditioner or styler and you’ve got a delicious hair treat that will last the whole day.
Most Exotic: Tamanu Oil
For almost twenty dollars for an ounce you’d think this oil cured cancer. Well, it doesn’t do that but check out its other beneficial and curative properties.
Most Widely Known: Extra Virgin Olive Oil
We’ve all probably used this oil to cook once. No surprise it’s also good for your hair. It’s got all the benefits of Canola Oil, all the protective qualities of Grapeseed Oil and some of the penetrative qualities of Coconut Oil. Olive Oil also increases the tensile strength of hair by three times. This oil will protect your hair from damage while giving thickness and shine. Above all it’s pretty cheap for a lot of it.
So that’s my list. Feel free to send me your own :)
Have fun and Good luck!

The OFFICIAL 2013 RED HOT Exhibition London, celebration poster is now available to buy online! 
Photographer Thomas Knights said: “The collection aims to dispel the popular preconception that ginger men are somehow less attractive and weaker than their brunette or blonde counterparts.”  “It amazed me how our western culture holds redheaded women to such high regard, almost the ‘ultimate’ female, and redheaded males in such low esteem; emasculated and desexualised in film, TV and literature.  “I wanted to flip this stereotype on its head and present the redheaded male as the ‘ultimate’ alpha male. Essentially, ginger boys desperately needed a rebrand and I felt like I was in a good position to do it.”
