Beyonce took a shopping trip to Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan yesterday with daughter Blue Ivy. Bey and husband Jay-Z usually keep her shielded away from the cameras, but a leaked picture gave us a look at Blue’s adorable little face. Maybe they were buying baby shoes, or Kardashian repellent.
Beyonce was also sporting box braids in an updo. Perhaps inspired by younger sister Solange, who occasionally wears braids.
I don’t know why people are shocked by the new hair, did we forget about the blonde micro braids in Destiny’s Child‘s “Bug A Boo” video? I kind of like the easy, summery look.
The Social Security Administration has released the most popular baby names from 2011. Honestly. I guess American women are more Team Jacob, since Edward is nowhere to be seen on the list. And listen here! I named my son Alexander over 28 years ago.
I’m surprised Mia is so popular. I do love that name, I’ll admit.
Is your kid’s name on the list? (I apologize in advance if your son is named Jacob.) Nice backpedaling, yes?
Seems that Lily Allen’s mum spilled the beans about her newborn granddaughter’s name…even though the name sounds like it could be her spinster great-auntie’s name. Ethel Mary is the name that popped out of Lily’s mom’s mouth on Facebook, so now everyone knows.
Let’s stop and talk about baby names for a moment. There’s a list going around which gives the names of the first babies born in each state on New Years Day 2012. I’ve done the double asterisk (**) to indicate my two-cents worth on certain names. I didn’t comment on all of them–just the eye-catching, or eye-rolling monikers.
