Luckily, I’m in good company—all my buddies and the other GLOB (Gorgeous Ladies of BUST) are nail-polish addicts. I especially like glittery stuff, because, as far as I’m concerned, metallic sparkles are a neutral.

  A resounding thanks to the vendors and BUSTy-attendees who made the BUST Magazine Craftacular & Food Fair a stellar success this past weekend! The event saw approximately 5,000 craft-loving-folk come through Saturday and Sunday to peruse funky handmade goods, nosh on delicious grub, and partake in crafty projects with BUST's founders, Laurie Henzel and Debbie Stoller.

No woman wants someone telling her what her vagina should look. That’s why the activist group UK Feminista and performance art group the Muffia—known for wearing nude bodysuits decorated with tufts of pubic hair—are taking to the London Streets tomorrow morning.

                 It’s Adele’s world-- we all just live in it. Apparently no one can resist the charms of the green-eyed songstress. She’s sold more than 4 million copies of her second album, 21, thanks to her widespread appeal. Even your grandma loves her, right?
