Whether you loved, hated, or loved hate-reading the 50 Shades of Grey series, you can't deny that kink is having a Moment.  And who better to help you explore your sensual side in a safe and creative way than BUST's favorite women-friendly sex boutique, the excellent and educational Babeland? At Babeland NYC and BUST Magazine's annual summer party at Babeland SoHo on July 26, you can make a sexy blindfold of your own-- and you don't even need to be a quietly beautiful virgin or a wealthy, charismatic entrepreneur with a dark past to take part in this kinky craft.

On October 2nd, Beth Orton will release Sugaring Season, her first album in six years, and make her Anti- Records debut. Sugaring Season was recorded in Portland, Oregon, with producer Tucker Martine (My Morning Jacket, The Decemberists). With its deeply lyrical songwriting and newfound expressivity of voice, the album demonstrates Orton’s daring synthesis of her broad musical influences into a powerfully individual artistic vision. "I stretched myself as a singer on this record and used voices I never have before as a writer," she explains.

Why is it that we belittle those interested in learning by calling them “nerds?" I personally don't believe there is such a thing as a guilty pleasure (unless you’re a serial killer or something), but being interested in books or science or math definitely shouldn’t be considered a “guilty” pleasure.

Although I find that Carly Rae Jepsen’s song “Call Me Maybe,” perpetuates the stereotype that I have to wait for a guy to call me (if I am interested, I WILL CALL YOU!), I still find it incredibly catchy. And apparently Cookie Monster does too because, from the makers of Sesame Street, a new spoof of the song went viral this week. The version, “Share It Maybe” riffs off what Cookie Monster knows best—his love affair with cookies. I now know exactly how to serenade the person who stole the cookies from the cookie jar.

It’s always a grand ol’ time drooling over pretty nail art pictures scattered across the wonderful World Wide Web, even if you and your shaky hands have no intention of duplicating the designs. Nail art fanatics, cue the hallelujah chorus now, because the folks over at theBERRY have compiled a gallery of pop culture-inspired nail art done by personal bloggers and/or fellow fanatics from every corner of the internet. Cute and quirky as opposed to a typical manicure? Of course. Functional, like a typical manicure? Not entirely.

The Ohio River Project is the latest venture of artists who make boats out of awesome pieces of trash and travel down various rivers. They stop in towns along the way to put on free shows for the public and create fun experiences, tons of laughter, and amazing pictures. Every year the masterminds behind the project pick a different river, and this time around they're sailing down one of the largest and most populated in the United States, the Ohio River. The boat is constructed from a mix of pianos, books, and even a Ferris Wheel, and “Bigfoot: The Musical” is their latest show.

Yup you read that right--Fleetwood Mac is getting back together. The ethereal gypsy that is Stevie Nicks spoke with “CBS This Morning” on Wednesday about the group reuniting for a handful of shows in 2013. “Next year, so far..it’s the plan.” The number of plays “Rumours” has in my iPod is up in the triple digits and I am crazy excited--like tween crying at boy band concert excited--for the chance to see Fleetwood Mac live on stage. My life will be complete once I get my hands on those tickets. But 2013 is still a little while away.

What a breathtaking view: The sky, lightly coated with dollops of clouds, the setting sun creating pretty shadowy streaks across the sandy landscape, and that nice gigantic pair of…legs? This was basically my reaction upon seeing the above collage from Carl E. Smith’s National Parks collection.

When did the question of “Can women have it all?” become such a big debate? Although we’ve probably been trying to answer that question since that first multi-cellular organism managed its way out of the primordial soup, lately, it’s been a huge topic of discussion. From Anne-Marie Slaughter’s highly talked-about The Atlantic piece “Why Women Still Can’t Have It All” to Taylor Cotters very criticized Huffington Post blog “A Struggle of Not Struggling,” culture is very seriously trying to figure this one out.

If you’re into fashion blogs, you may be familiar with Rhiannon Leifheit of the wonderful, vintage-inspired "Liebemarlene." Blogging for years, she’s been featured on multiple websites and graced the pages of many magazines, including our very own back in 2008. Liebemarlene is one of the first fashion blogs I've read, and I’ve been a follower ever since. While she does post wonderful collections, outfits, and photo shoots, Leifheit also writes about a variety of other things aside from fashion.
