I love sneakers! They make me think of summers spent running around in shorts, climbing down rocky shores to sunbathe by a lake.  They're no-nonsense in the way they help you get shit done, but it's awesome when sneakers can be fashionable too. Here at BUST, we're vibing pretty hard on these new sneaks from Gravis's collaboration with Brooklyn artist Dan Funderburgh. They have the same effortless L.A. style we've come to love from Gravis with an added femme flare.  Too cute! Let the countdown to...
When this Finnish HIV/AIDS awareness ad came out, it sparked a lot of controversy: was it empowering or was it slut-shaming? Was it slut-shaming, or female-shaming in general? Just because there is another ad with a man on it, does that make it okay? I'm still not completely sure.

It’s like the song of my life right now, since I...
  Here’s an awesome event for our New York BUSTies! For Women’s History Month, Target’s upcoming First Saturday at the Brooklyn Museum has been dubbed “Fierce, Phenomenal Women.” So this March, enjoy a slew of activities, performers, and art exhibits to honor and inspire discussion about women. From “Action Station,” an interactive exhibit that invites visitors to contribute images of influential women in their lives, to a performance by the Brooklyn Ballet, I can only describe the lineup for the night as totally BOSS. You may think that...
I am a worshipper of vegan mac 'n' cheese. Actually, for a person who eats meat, I find myself thinking about yummy vegan/vegetarian fare all the time. Just last night, I was explaining to my friend Chris all the wonders of vegetarian chorizo. And is there anything quite like a seitan Jamaican patty? The golden crust hiding that steaming curry-spiced treasure! Real talk: I love food!  And it’s about that time of year when all my vegan/vegetarian food dreams come true. The NYC Vegetarian Food Festival...
