Every Lego Color Ever Made

A Lego enthusiast named Jeremy Moody made a chart of every Lego color ever produced.

“There are 182 different pieces. And no matter how the LEGO piece looks, if it has a unique color, it’s right there on the chart… Some elements might be pretty common, but most are only available in small quantities or were only part of some old set decades ago and are really hard to find these days.”

Kawaii Monster Cafe

Sharla in Japan went to visit the Kawaii Monster cafe in Harajuku. The colors are amazing! I think my favorite food item is the “colorful poison” parfait which Sharla said was a bit much for 5 people! And the bouncy ball sink in the bathroom looks so cool! I hope when I make it to Japan the cafe is still there!

Technicolor Ooze California Mural

This is the Platform retail building in Culver City, California, which is scheduled to open in spring 2016 according to their website.

LA artist Jen Stark created this “drippy and trippy” mural which is apparently called Technicolor Ooze. I especially love how the colors range from pastel to vivid!

Rainbow Bagels

These rainbow bagels are beautiful! Scott Rosillo, the “world’s premier bagel artist,” makes them at The Bagel Store in Brooklyn. Some of them have a funfetti-style cream cheese filling too! The best part is they’re available to be shipped nationwide (without the cream cheese), but they’re so popular that there’s currently a wait! They’re egg and dairy free.

$3.95 at The Bagel Store
