“So my amazing daughter, Emma, turned 5 last month, and I had been searching everywhere for new-creative inspiration for her 5yr pictures. I noticed quite a pattern of so many young girls dressing up as beautiful Disney Princesses, no matter where I looked 95% of the “ideas” were the “How to’s” of how to dress your little girl like a Disney Princess…We chose 5 women (five amazing and strong women), as it was her 5th birthday but there are thousands of unbelievable women (and girls) who have beat the odds and fought (and still fight) for their equal rights all over the world”

Tippi Degré, the girl who spent her childhood in the African jungle
Tippi Degré could be a normal girl, but for the fact of having lived 13 years of his life in the African jungle, living with all kinds of animals, from the most peaceful to the largest predators. A kind of Mowgli in females. Since his birth in 1990 until his 13-year-old Tippi lived in the African jungle, but after Tippi moved with his parents to Paris and the result was expected: the girl couldn’t relate because she had “little in common” with other children. She was educated at home and today, at age 23, studying cinema at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University. [read more]

Tallulah Bankhead is one of my favourite Hollywood icons, so I scrummaged to find some wonderful facts about her below:
- She smoked over 100 cigarettes a day and drank scotch and bourbon like water.
- The rumors about her bisexuality have her linked in affairs with Greta Garbo, Marlene Dietrich, Alla Nazminova and the singer Billie Holiday. After Time Magazine ran an article suggesting her bisexuality she immediately sent a telegram to her very rich and powerful parents denying the accusations.
- She nearly died after an emergency hysterectomy caused by a venereal disease and was quoted as saying “Don’t think this has taught me a lesson” directed to her physician upon leaving the hospital.
- She was considered for the role of Scarlet O’Hara and tested for the role but after seeing how much older she looked on film the role went to the much younger and photogenic Vivien Leigh. Tallulah was 36 at the time “Gone with the Wind” was filmed and Scarlet was only 16 at the beginning of the movie.
- Tallulah who was never keen on acting once said the only reason she went to Hollywood was to sleep with that divine Gary Cooper. (She used more colorful language but I won’t use her exact words here.)
- She was the first white woman to appear on the cover of Ebony Magazine.
- She loved jazz and would often be seen out all hours of the night listening to Jazz in Speakeasy’s all over Harlem.
- She once owned a pet lion named Winston.
- President Harry S. Truman once said that her autobiography was the best book he had read upon coming to the White House.
- A small town in Louisiana was renamed Tallulah after her after she spent the night there in the 1930’s.
- She was said to be the inspiration for the character Cruella DeVil in “101 Dalmations”
- She was infamous for not wearing underwear and the crew and cast of the film “Lifeboat” complained about her constantly flashing them when climbing up the ladder during filming. Director Alfred Hitchcock quipped ” I don’t know if this is a matter for wardrobe or for hairdressing”
- The character Bette Davis played in “All About Eve” was based on a real life incident by Tallulah Bankhead. Bette despised Tallulah so I’m sure she got a real kick out of playing such an over the top drama queen.
- Her last on screen appearance was in the television show “Batman” in 1966.
- When her former housekeeper charged that Tallulah made her roll her joints for her Tallulah shot back with “God, good help is so hard to find”
- A shrewd businesswoman she had an estate worth over 2 million dollars at the time of her death.
- She loved children and not being to have any of her own she was a foster parent to many underprivileged children.
- Upon meeting producer Irving Thalberg she asked him “How do you get laid in this dreadful place”
- Tallulah’s last words were reportedly “Codeine…Bourbon.”
We enter a little coffeehouse with a friend of mine and give our order. While we’re aproaching our table two people come in and they go to the counter:
‘Five coffees, please. Two of them for us and three suspended’ They pay for their order, take the two and leave.
I ask my friend: “What are those ‘suspended’ coffees?”
My friend: “Wait for it and you will see.”
Some more people enter. Two girls ask for one coffee each, pay and go. The next order was for seven coffees and it was made by three lawyers - three for them and four ‘suspended’. While I still wonder what’s the deal with those ‘suspended’ coffees I enjoy the sunny weather and the beautiful view towards the square infront of the café. Suddenly a man dressed in shabby clothes who looks like a beggar comes in throught the door and kindly asks
‘Do you have a suspended coffee ?’
It’s simple - people pay in advance for a coffee meant for someone who can not afford a warm bevarage. The tradition with the suspended coffees started in Naples, but it has spread all over the world and in some places you can order not only a suspended coffee, but also a sandwitch or a whole meal.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have such cafés or even grocery stores in every town where the less fortunate will find hope and support ? If you own a business why don’t you offer it to your clients… I am sure many of them will like it.
