Gray hairs no more? Maybe. The frontrunning theory in explaining why our hair greys is that melanocytes, which inject pigment into the hair, deteriorate. News has just got out that a few years ago, L’Oreal very quietly filed an application for a patent for the “Administration of agents mimicking dopachrome tautomerase (TRP-2) activity for protecting hair follicle melanocytes”. A long-term solution to grey hair woes just might be on the market soon.
We usually like to talk about up and coming artists, but it would be wrong to not acknowledge Jay-Z’s new album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail”. Video features for the album leading up to its release all over youtube, and after falling in love with the mystery instrumental that they sneaked into the ads, we finally have been graced with the full song, “Holy Grail” feat. Justin Timberlake. JT and Jay-Z always have the best collabs. Nas, Timberland, Pharrel, and other hip-hop icons drop in on the album.
Shenanigans on the Interwebz
Some people have got a killer diaphragm. Others, not so much. But we all like to belt out a tune every now and then. Those of us more melodically challenged might just sing in private. What happens when you’re little boy belting out Britney Spears in your room, thinking that you’re safe from outside judgement, and instead, your Mom barges in? This happens. An oldie but a goodie.
Food for Thought
Here at Chictopia, we’re sweet potato fanatics. They have a lower glycemic index than regular potatoes (healthier!), and can hold their own without cheese and sour cream. If you’re looking to change things up, try adding a savory element to your sweet potato with this recipe for sweet potatoes stuffed with a chipotle black bean and corn salad.
How many of you have significant others that don sports jerseys in public, and consider it everyday casual wear? Well, he/she might have been onto something, because the fashion world is quickly warming up to mesh. Use it to substitute the usual sheer top like deathbyplatforms, or use it as an accent like blairbadge.
In The Chictopia Office
A Candy Crush obsession is sweeping the office. There are a few of us who have been able to resist the allure thus far, but the game seems to be a saccharine black hole that we’re bound to be sucked into at some point. Do you play Candy Crush?
Whew, that concludes our journey on the www. this week. Rest up, and we’ll see you at next week’s jaunt!
