make labels or badges look better

How to make these look better.

The labels are used in the list items to show a small version of the category or sometimes the view count for a list item.

How they look currently

Dark Mode

Light Mode

I was thinking that as the text flows down to the next line they kinda look a bit odd, so some changes are needed.

As always when you re-use elements, if i change it in one spot it changes in a bunch of other spots whitch i discovered later. 

Here is how it looks after a few changes.

Dark Mode

Light Mode

I think this change makes it look a bit neater, maybe still need to tweak the border a bit to make it stand out slightly less. 

The css and html changes are below as well. 

I had to make the outer elements relative, so i could set the badges out a bit of the elements, then they dont take up as much of the real estate inside the main text area.
