The ladies at BUST picked up that our lovely readers are crazy about finding new reads. We saw how you jumped at Lisa's call for summer reading. As a YA-lit junkie myself, it's awesome to see how dedicated you guys are to the tomes of our youth. That said, there's this incredible Renaissance going on in young adult literature, and we've decided to regale you with shiny new books based on your literary loves of the past. First up: If you loved Weetzie Bat, then try The Orpheus Obsession by Dakota Lane.There are moments when you only have to think a thought to make it happen.
This just in! The lovely ladies of BabyCakes will be providing all party guests at BUST's 15-Year Anniversary Party with FREE CUPCAKES!!! Uh...yes...free cupcakes. BabyCakes make a recurring visit to the BUST office. Whenever there is a birthday, intern going away party, or a "gimme something sweet right now" day, BabyCakes is typically who we turn to, as they offer all natural, organic and delicious alternatives free from the common allergens: wheat, gluten, dairy, casein and eggs. Rest assured, all sweeteners have been chosen responsibly and used sparingly.
Yes, it's true!  The Deal sisters and their current Breeders lineup dropped by Brooklyn yesterday afternoon to play McCarren Pool as part of the summer Pool Parties Series! The show was free.  And it was apparently the place to be.  The Olympic-sized pool accommodates thousands (and should be noted it is a veritable oven in the summer sun), but the line outside moved slowly and there were still folks who hadn't gotten in by the end of the set! Bummer. Even listening from the outside of the venue, Kim Deal's honey-drenched vocals were still as unmistakeable as ever.
Sixxfoota is a clothing line designed for women of all sizes, but specifically designed for women over 5'9". We at BUST totally agree with their goal of promoting self-love among all women, and now they've got a new T-shirt that puts some money where their mouth is. Proceeds from the "Love Heals" shirt, seen here on Alicia Keys, will benefit various organizations that act to empower girls and young women. Current sales will go to Girls, Inc.

  True story! It's a perfume just pour moi! We got these cute perfumes from Danica and I was the lucky lady to try them out.  I dig the Wild version because my nose can easily sniff out the Jasmine, one of my favorite scents. I normally veer away from anything fruity, which would give me an all-day starbursts crave.  However, in this the summery peach and passion fruit isn't at all overwhelming, but a welcome surprise amongst that fresh jasmine scent I so adore. It's spontaneous and earthy and warm and calm all at the same time.
 I’m sure by now you lovely ladies out there have noticed the bright banner that shows up for TRKFLD.  Well if you haven’t already, click the banner and you’ll be transported to bag heaven.  The TRK FLD line offers simple, stylish, straightforward bags! My favorite is the Mimi pictured above.  Uno: that pose is cute. Duo: It’s a circle! (I’m a hatbox collector and that bag is pulling on my heartstrings.)But there are bags for everyone, I swear it.
  What celebrities are you living in the past for? After discussing the new Batman movie that is coming out, I confessed that Christian Bale circa Little Women was the man of my dreams... but then Tara reminded me of the 1992 classic musical The Newsies which not only made a New York accent hot, but made Brooklyn cool long before Brooklyn got hip. Forget Christian Bale! Spot, you'll always be the man of my eleven year old heart. (image taken from Newsiesfreak.
       OK, but I get alot of mail everyday, some of it fun (cds, photography and illustration promos) some not so fun (bills!) and every now and then some random cool shit that I just have to share. Today I recieved a hand made linocut poster and silkscreened neckerchef (or neckerchin as debbie likes to call em) from a gal named Tamara, her company is called No Guts No Glory and she is based in Brooklyn.
