So Meghan Markle met Duchess Kate and Princess Charlotte last week! And like any woman keen to make a good impression on potential in-laws, Meg did not arrive empty handed.
The 35 year old kinda-Torontonian gave Kate, whose 35th birthday was last week, a "leather-bound dream diary"...or at least that's what The Sun newspaper is reporting.
The paper does not elaborate on what exactly one does with a "dream diary"...but if we were Kate we'd probably fill it with fantasies of a life where the internet didn't explode every time we cut a few layers into our hair.
NB: George would totally have been in on these informal celebrations but unfortunately he had school.
We have an unconfirmed case of the 7 year itch striking Hollywood, following reports that Girls actress Jemima Kirke and her husband have called it quits.
The pair—who Kirke recently revealed met in rehab—have been married since 2009, and according to Us Weekly, have been estranged since the summer of last year.
There's been no official word from the pair, but various outlets are reporting that Kirke's husband, 39 year old Michael Mosberg, has been spotted on the celeb-only dating app Raya (other sorta-famous users include John Mayer and Chelsea Handler).
Kirke and Mosberg have two kids together—a daughter aged 6 and son aged 4—along with Mosberg's two children from a previous relationship.

New year, new hair.
Bella Hadid has a signature hair look (a slicked-back topknot, of course), yet still manages to play with colour and length. The 20-year-old model has gone pink, blonde and toyed with wispy bangs in the past, but this new blunt cut is a first. Celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin posted an image on Instagram saying she had given the youngest Hadid bangs ("Bang'd Bella"), however did not confirm if the hair change is legit or just temporary extensions. Either way, we are into it. See the new look below.

And welcome to 2017, turmeric. We've heard so much about you.
The vivid spice, which is thousands of years old and a staple in curry dishes, is having a moment in the coffee space. At Toronto's adorable and health-minded nutbar cafe—which is less than a month old—turmeric lattes are as delicious as they are beautiful. But do they benefit your bod? Nutbar founder Kate Taylor Martin says yes.
"As a health-focused cafe, we were drawn to incorporating turmeric into our menu because of its powerful nutritional properties," she says. "It's one of the most potent anti-inflammatories on the planet." Taylor Martin is also a registered holistic nutritionist, hence the impressively healthy menu, which spans kelp noodle bowls to power balls and moringa-laced smoothies. Nutbar's turmeric latte costs $6 and contains black pepper (which helps with turmeric absorption), cinnamon, vanilla, nutbar nutmilk and raw honey.
But how does it taste? When I visited the adorable cafe a few days before Christmas, I took a trepidatious sip of my friend's Laura's nutty drink, expecting an unknown overpowering bouquet. But I was delighted—it was vibrant and creamy, and paired extremely well with the housemade "nutbar nutmilk", a custom blend of organic cashew, almond and coconut milks. Laura described it as "a more densely flavoured chai latte."
"The customer response has been incredible," says Taylor Martin, who names the dense spicy drink as one of her top sellers. And we're sure it has nothing to do with how the mustard hue pairs with the cafe's gorgeous, spice-splattered paper cups. Latte art fanatics, gird your loins.
