  Jaclyn Bethany, 23, recently launched Audrey Grace this past week and it’s nothing short of a wondrous place for all the pretty things I wish filled my room. Like her shop in Mississippi and pop-up in NYC, the online shop is a unique mix of dreamy vintage pieces, gorgeous designer frocks, and adorable illustrations from around the world. I sat down with Bethany before her big launch and asked a her few questions about the shop and her inspiration behind it.

There are many reasons why the gay wedding I’m about to gush over for the next few paragraphs is worthy of attention. First, it blows New Girl out of the water in terms of adorkableness (I’m still a fan, Zooey!). Second, it follows on the heels of recent decisions by comic book writers to get on board with the gay. And third of all, June is Pride Month and that means every blog gets a little more colorful. Ohio-based Scott Everhart, 39, never expected to be chosen for the wedding of a lifetime in a New York comic book store, the Huffington Post reports.

Islam is a topic that triggers a variety of reactions and questions from people in the West, especially in regard to the role of women who practice the religion. Today, The National, a publication that “tells the story of the Middle East as seen through the region’s eyes," featured an opinion piece by Sahar Khan, where she discusses the Western misconception that Islam oppresses women. She points out that, first of all, the ideas and practices of Islam aren't the same as those of the region in which it is practiced, and never have been.

It’s no secret that science isn’t exactly a female-dominated field, and the European Commission has taken notice. Although it was a well-intentioned effort, the commission launched their dud of a campaign just this week to urge women that they’ll, like, totally love science. With its not-even-slightly-catchy slogan, “Science: It’s a Girl Thing!”, the campaign inadvertently made a mockery of female intelligence with its sweeping generalizations regarding what will catch a girl’s attention.

Comedy Central officially announced today that outspoken comedian Roseanne Barr is next in line to be Roasted, joining the list of the network's former Roastees which include Charlie Sheen, Donald Trump, and Betty White. Not only has the feisty feminist delved into the world of reality television, sitcoms, and film to name just a few, but she’s also BUST's very own advice columnist with an endless supply of sass under her belt.  In regards to the highly-anticipated roast, Roseanne remarked, “All I can say is good luck finding anything about me to make fun of...

When that “2:30 feeling” strikes, as the 5-Hour Energy commercial puts it, it’s easy to try to mask it with caffeine by choosing an energy drink from the myriad of options available at the nearest 7-Eleven. But, as we all know by now, that worn-out, running-on-empty feeling will return with a vengeance once all of the caffeine and sugar leave your system. As crazy as it may sound, perhaps next time you should swap out the venti Starbucks latte (and any extra shots of espresso) for a raw meal.

  Our favorite teen blogger/superstar Tavi Gevinson is embarking on a national road trip to meet the readers of RookieMag.com, her excellent website for teen girls. Tavi and a few of the staff from Rookie will kick off the tour this Monday June 25th in Brooklyn. The girls will stop in 17 cities and wind up with a big event in LA at the end of July. The events sound awesome, and will include readings and art shows. Supercute! will play on Monday, and others stops include, ice cream eating, crafting, vintage shopping, doughnuts, record shopping, performances and much more.

One of the many purposes of contemporary guerrilla art is to help bring a more universal form of awareness to issues within our society that are difficult to illuminate through other means – I’m thinking of Banksy’s famous stenciled commentary on the value of graffiti, as well as the late-night chalk-activism that my friend Q and I have been known to bestow upon the streets of St. Louis from time to time.

I recently had the pleasure of attending Julie Mollo's 2012 Collection Launch Party and it couldn't have been more fun! Her collection consisted of flirty circle skirts that swish in all the right ways and sexy sports bras embellished to perfection. The skirts were made up of things such as music notes, pac-man, sea creatures, skylines, and, best of all, bubbles!  With skirts like theses, balloons and doo-wop setting the mood, the atmosphere was nothing short of fun, flirty, and fifties. For a circle skirt of your very own, check out Mollo's online shop.
