Patricia Riggen's film is just in time for Mother's Day, and it certainly isn't lacking any of that drippy sentimentality you would expect from a family portrait.  Ansiedad Gutierrez (Cierra Ramirez) has decided that the coming-of-age stories she is reading in her English class will provide her with a path to an adulthood in which she can successfully escape her childlike mother, Grace (Eva Mendes). After all, Mom did crown her with a name that translates to "anxiety." Contrarily, the texture of the film is soft and palatable, like a hunk of tres leches.

The necklace is probably my favorite accessory. It can glam up any old t-shirt or sweater, make your fancy dress look even fancier, and you don't have to take it off when you do the dishes. Here is a small round-up of necklaces I'm currently lusting after.   Pyramid 3D Necklace, $14, bythecoco.etsy.com -- Bunting Necklace, $29, littlepancakes.etsy.com -- Cina Necklace, $38, needsupply.com -- Chevron Chain Necklace, $60, weseestars.com -- Leaf Necklace, $70, brevityjewelry.

The War on Women is HILARIOUS, right? Taking away women's access to affordable birth control, slinging 'slut' like there's no tomorrow, insisting that all this legislation about our ladybits is what we want. I nearly fall off my chair laughing about this stuff! Okay, real talk, this is not a laughing matter. The political climate in this country continues to terrify us, and giggles are quite possibly the furthest reaction from our minds. Until watching this video, that is.

The temperatures continue to rise and the sun is making its way out from behind the April clouds, meaning it's nearly time to bust out your raddest sunglasses. There's no better way to avoid eye strain, hide a hangover, or masquerade as a reclusive famous person. Below are some of our favorite options for this summer, and since we tend to go through pairs pretty quickly (read: accidentally sit on them in the car), they're all ultra-cheapies. These bright and graphic babies make a statement, and as a bonus, will make you look more like MIA.

I’m no stranger to smut. Like many girls, my earliest sex-ed experience was thumbing through my mom’s Jude Deveraux novels, trying to decipher all the euphemisms in the sex scenes. I’m not personally one who, ahem, needs a lot of back story when it comes to this sort of thing — I prefer the short-form stuff (like BUST’s One Handed Reads!). But I’ve always respected the genre. I’ve always assumed that erotica is like poetry or horror movies — particularly tough to get right, but the good stuff must be transcendent.

Yes, this is real. In a series of advertisements that cost $1.5 million to make, Ashton Kutcher – in an attempt to sell snack chips – donned full-on brownface, an awkward accent, and bizarre dance moves for character Bollywood producer “Raj.” Popchips launched several promotional videos in the format of a dating service to advertise their chips, with each video centered on a specific personality. And Raj has received quite a bit of media attention on his own. Rightfully so, in my opinion. Watch it here: [video:http://www.youtube.

Finding cool and affordable art to hang on your walls can feel downright impossible. Sure, you can go to a big-box store and pick up some okay looking art in the home decorating section, but if you're on the hunt for some jazzier pieces for your walls, check out the following websites. 1. 20x200: Prints start at just $20! That's right, $20! Prices go up to $200 for larger, more limited prints. Prints can be purchased unframed or framed (framed prints costs extra). -- 2. Tiny Showcase: A portion of sales from each print is donated to a charity chosen by the artist. -- 3.

Being a woman in the United States looking at the legislation and political climate regarding women’s bodies, it’s fairly easy to lose faith. It would be an understatement to say that the government’s relationship with women is not pretty. It’s refreshing, then, to see people in positions of power who actually think of women as more than baby incubators. U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon stated last week to the Commission of Population and Development that believes that’s it is the U.N.

Confession: I have a bit of a saddle shoe obsession. In my opinion, there's nothing not awesome about these old-school lace-ups. They're super comfy, stylish, and fun in that "sock hop" kind of way. They can elevate a casual look to classic and a dressy look to casual. Add some ruffled socks and we're totally in business.  Right now, some of the saddle-shoe related cuteness I'm digging is this easy D.I.Y. via Rookiemag.com.
