“she bad, she bad, she bad, she bad. Gucci bag, Fending bag, Prada bag, Louis bag. Birkin bag. She in the bag. She drip. She swag. Never mad. She glad. Louis bag. She in the bag.” Thank you @iamcardib for not only giving us an amazing album, but for being unapologetically yourself no matter what. #okkuurr

Yves Klein is the only artist to have ever patented a color of his own invention: "International Klein Blue". Somewhere between lapis lazuli and dark cobalt, it creates the chicest pop over a crisp white outfit.

Kate: "When I wrote the song it was just a name that literally came into my mind, I've presumed I've got it from a fairy story I'd read when I was a child. And after having written the song a series of incredible coincidences happened where I'd turned on the television and there was Donald Swan singing about Babooshka.
So I thought, 'well, there's got to be someone who's actually called Babooshka.' So I was looking through Radio Times and there, another coincidence, there was an opera called Babooshka. Apparently she was the lady that the three kings went to see because the star stopped over her house and they thought 'Jesus is in there.' So they went in and he wasn't. And they wouldn't let her come with them to find the baby and she spent the rest of her life looking for him and she never found him. And also a friend of mine had a cat called Babooshka. So these really extraordinary things that kept coming up when in fact it was just a name that came into my head at the time purely because it fitted.” (BBC Radio 1, 11 October 1980)
Meet Max....introduced by a grocer in 1892, and named after the prominent Maxwell House hotel in Nashville. The famous slogan 'Good to the Last Drop' is not without controversy. In the 1930's, the company claimed that Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed these words while sipping the brew. Problem was, Coca-Cola was using the slogan at the time. Later the folks at Maxwell House admitted the slogan was written by their CEO. Fast forward to 2009, Maxwell House reinstates the Roosevelt connection. Though never historically established, it remains the registered trademark of the company. And, while I'd never pick a favorite among my own three children, I have to go with the 5 cents off Max in this trio. Because...5 cents off...which I find both hilarious and endearing.
