7 Kate Spade Brand Mottos That Will Always Be Relevant

In the wake of Kate Spade's tragic passing on June 5th, it's important to note the iconic image and precedent she set for young women and visionaries across the globe. Her courage to start her own handbag line in the 90's and leave a prestigious editing job to follow her dreams and passions sent a message to everyone that creativity and innovation should be celebrated, pursued, and never put on the back burner.

I had the pleasure of being an employee of the company, and it was such a pleasant, motivating, and inspiring brand to work for. The many lines and mottos found on the handbags, shoes, clothing, and accessories are uplifting and exactly what we all need to keep living life in color.

Here are 7 Kate Spade brand mottos to live by:

1. "Eat cake for breakfast."

Annie Spratt

An all-time favorite of mine is the iconic "Eat cake for breakfast" motto found on many accessories. The message here is to live life the way you want to and enjoy the little things - like cake!

2. "She had a cocktail in her hand and glitter in her hair."

Lindsay Cotter

This motto is a lot of fun. No matter how hard you're working to find success in life, never forget to take time to yourself every now and then. Some moments call for celebration - and definitely cocktails.

3. "She is quick and curious and playful and strong."

Lauren Roberts

Women are constantly torn down and not treated the way they deserve to be, but it's important to stay positive and true to yourself. The Kate Spade brand does a great job highlighting all the attributes that women should strive to possess: curiosity, wittiness, playfulness, and, most importantly, strength.

4. "Be the inspiration you want to see in the world."

Ross Findon

This motto is so timely right now because so many people have been advocating for change on an array of issues and coming forward with the courage needed to be an inspiration to others. We see this with the #MeToo movement and how the women who found the strength to tell their stories have inspired others to do the same.

5. "Be happy, be bright, be you."

Kyle Loftus

Optimism will take you far in life, and by choosing to be grateful for what you have and happy no matter what life throws at you, good things will come your way. Always be that bright light for someone else when they need it, and never forget to be you.

6. "She leaves a little sparkle wherever she goes."

Amy Shamblen

Don't be afraid to leave your mark. You don't have to want to be the center of attention to leave a little "sparkle" wherever you go. Being yourself and being kind to others will leave a lasting impact on everyone you meet. Choose to be that person who encourages others to spread the love.

7. "Make every day Saturday."


This is a great motto to live by. Why groan every Monday when you can just be excited and happy instead? Life is too short to just go through the motions. Life every day like it's the weekend - go out on a Wednesday or catch a movie on a Tuesday. Make the most of every minute.

*If you are feeling hopeless or suffering from depressing thoughts, call 1-800-273-8255 for help.

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.


When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.


I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.


We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."
