There are a few vodkas that are so good you don't really even want a mixer, Tito's Handmade is totally one of them. 12 years ago, Bert “Tito” Beveridge obtained the first permit ever issued to distill in Texas and racked up 19 credit cards to finance his handmade vodka dream. These days, Tito's Handmade Vodka is the fastest growing spirit brand in the America thanks to some very powerful word of mouth from people like you! It continues to win the most prestigious awards and accolades over the big corporate international brands and is available in across North America.

I swear this is not a Photoshop deception. Recently, an actual pink dolphin was spotted in our very own waters; down in the Gulf of Mexico off the coast of New Orleans. The dolphin is actually albino, the proof is in its reddish eyes. Scientists don't know why it is pink... I like to think it is because it swam too close to a cupcake factory.

Check out the Vice interview with the ladies behind Ligerbeat! Of course its got dick all over it so don't read it when your boss is standing behind you, unless of course your job is looking at dicks on the internet. I think we shined like a lubed up dick in the sun but you be the judge. We are poppin' these boners out very soon ladies. I've been in the dick cave everyday after I clock out of BUST trying to get this baby to the printer. I really hope people love it as much as I love making it.

This is going to be a fabulous event for all labies and non-labies to have a fantastic evening and help end violence against women and girls. This party, hosted by BUST, will be taking place at Happy Ending down on Broome street next Tuesday, March 10th. Doors are at 7pm, and it costs 5 bucks at the door, all proceeds go to the Vagina Monologues productions on March 13th. Lucky attendees will also receive goodie bags with swag from Adam + Eve, Babeland and BUST! The best part is an open vodka bar from 7:30 to 9pm (or until it runs out!) of Tito's Handmade vodka.

It's easy to be seduced by nostalgia and lace, but in order to really fall in love I still need a bit of freshness added to the mix. By combining a bold and frequently strange color palette with exaggerated, romantic trimmings, ETSY seller Vintageopulence delivers in a major way.  Vintageopulence describes herself as a 'little British lady, now living happily and warm in the Southern United States.' Her etsy items are a combination of hand dyed and refinished vintage lingerie as well as wholly original pieces.

Now I know these Target designer duds are sometimes hard to get your hands on, so I'm giving you advance warning on the cute, vintage inspired line coming down the pipe on May 17th from Tracy Feith. I had the opportunity to chat with the charming and creative designer (with his surfer dude good looks!) at the press preview a few weeks ago, and he explained to me that he wanted clothes that looked like something you would find on your best vintage store score, but at an affordable price.

     I watch The Bachelor. And not just off-handedly while flipping channels, or once in awhile if I happen to be home. On Mondays I make a point to have dinner made by 8 so I can give each episode (and the adult beverages my friend Amber always brings over) my full attention. This garners me endless teasing from my boyfriend and I've only recently come to terms with admitting my slight obsession to friends. But I can't help it, I'm hooked. The show is simultaneously appalling and mesmerizing.

I went to see the amazing 3D version of Coraline last night, and I loved every minute of it! Written by the very talented Neil Gaiman (look for an interview with him in next months issue), it tells the story of a feisty little girl that gets sucked into a nightmare world of scary dolls and witchy mothers who steal childrens eyeballs and souls.

  Word on the street (and by street I mean Fashionista) is that Beth Ditto's line for the U.K. store Evans is coming out sooner than expected, maybe even March! I can't WAIT to see it. If the clothes she's created are anything like the ones she rocks, it will be a stellar collection. I mean just look at these two outfits! Totally different, totally awesome.

Prolific Japanese artist Nagi Noda has created some awe inspiring works, from her short films to her photography to her fashion line but I think it is safe to say these hats take the cake. Noda created these hats using the models own hair so all you need is a blow up picture of a dolphin and a can of hair spray to complete your Friday night ensemble. Check out the pictures up close here. xo, Alison. Ed. note. Whats tragic is that this brilliant artist passed away in September of last year at age 35 due to complications from a car accident.
