i know giving to good causes is one of those things that often gets thought about but rarely gets accomplished..i know for myself, this is true. especially with nary two pennies to rub together. but my good gal friend kimmie is trying to raise money so she can go on a mission to ghana and do some really amazing things for women there. i only wish i had her motivation. anyway, she's a great friend and a great lady and what she's doing is great...

I got home last night after the craze-o fun of SXSW, and I was only there for two days, I dont know how these kids do it! Mommy's is tired. Anyway, there were alot of tatoos, tube socks, beer, bands, spandex and booze. Here is a brief recap of what I saw: Started at the Kemado showcase and watched Children and the Sword, then headed over to the Kill Rock stars showcase and caught Telepathy. Next door was the amazing Does it Offend You Yeah at Elmos, and caugt the tail end of Tight Phantomz (they were tight).

You just can't sleep with all the major awesomeness going down at Austin's SXSW!!! BUST's sponsored showcases rocked it hard: http://www.bust.com/sxsw2008.

I received this precious email from a friend of mine. Her grandma has been an Avon Lady for almost 34 years now and needs just a few more orders to make “Presidents’ Club”. Jessica is hoping her friends can help. I am a broke joke but maybe some of you BUST-ies need some beauty prods. Her grandma sent this precious letter where she makes big promises!   You read it right, she will make you strawberry jam! I took out the number cause I didn't want any craz-os pranking this sweet jam-maker. Jessica made a website for her here.

Inclement weather meant I spent Saturday night in, but a few things made it a fabulous evening: fresh-baked snickerdoodles (thanks Caroline!), the bottle of wine we polished off, and catching Amy Poehler’s spoof of my Project Runway love, Christian Siriano. Not to mention the always awesome Bill Hader as the always awesome Tim Gunn and Amy Adams doing a fierce Heidi Klum.

This song has been stuck in my head for three days! Good thing it's awesome.

There are tons of reasons to get excited about BUST's SXSW day party with Simian Records on Saturday March 15: FREE booze, FREE massages (for real!), plenty of awesome music, and April coverboy Elijah Wood in the DJ booth. But one of the things we're most stoked about is our craft station! The very stylish and rad ladies of Naughty Secretary Club and Austin Craft Mafia will be hanging out all day with us to craft snazzy eye masks fit for miss Holly Golightly herself! With crafty gear provided by Tulip, Crafty Chica, and Aleene's, it will be a rock n' crafty party to remember. P.S.

Today Girl's Rock, The Movie opens in theaters. The trailer made me tear up a bit, how cute are these kids? I'm definitely going to take my girls to see it this weekend. Below is the review that ran in the current issue of BUST. Girls Rock!Directed by Shane King and Arne Johnson(Girls Rock Productions)    Tearjerker and rockumentary are two genres that don’t generally go hand in hand. But you’ll need a hanky and your Joan Jett lighter when watching Girls Rock!, a documentary chronicling one session of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Camp for Girls in Portland, OR.
