KFC chickens out

BY Dawn in General

 In response to pressures from PETA, KFC Canada has given into their demands to start offering vegan options on their menu. "Un-chicken" nuggets will soon be available in the Canada locations. But really, would any serious vegetarian really need or want to even step foot in a KFC? I've been fortunate to have lived in cities like San Francisco and New York, where I have never found myself without plenty of meat-free options, and I realize not everyone ... Read More

Jump around

BY Dawn in General

Now that it's Summer, it's time for all our favorite sunny day games and pastimes: kites, slip and slide, kickball games in the park, and...double dutch! Personally, I was never able to master the dual ropes, barely had enough rhythm for one in fact. But San Francisco's jezebels of jump rope, Double Dutchess, don't have that problem. Lisa B. wrote about these ladies in BUST a few years back. If you've never had the opportunity to catch them live, check them hip and ... Read More

precious cargo

BY Dawn in Style File

A few issues ago, we did a round up of sweet looking luggage tags. My fav was this adorable tag from PamelaBarsky.com. It reads "nothing worth stealing in here", and really it's true, unless you'd be interested in gaffling a rack full of last season's Forever 21 dresses. But on a recent trip while waiting at bag claim, I was shocked to see that someone was not interested in my collection of cheap threads, but they were so impressed by my cute luggage tag, ...
