Andrea Garland's beauty products might not do exactly what it says on the tin, pill box or compact for that matter, but they're sure to give the likes of Benefit a run for their money! Tired of boring mass produced packaging, this vintage-loving aromatherapist decided to forgo the norm by choosing to fill all manner of tiny antique receptacles with her products instead. Each one different, the balms and lotions inside are lovingly made from organic and ethically ... Read More

Light Her (Labia) Menorah?

BY debbie in TV

I'm sure it was created with the best intentions.   I'm willing to give CBS the benefit of the doubt on that. But honestly, their new public service announcements suggesting that husbands give their wives the gift of a pap smear this holiday season are really.....ridiculous. Never mind the fact that if this is really what I were to receive from the man in my life as my Hanukkah gift I would be sorely disappointed, and  how is my guy supposed to ... Read More
In an earlier post today, I brought you the joy that is Gwen Verdon's dance number, Mexican Breakfast, with her various moves helpfully explained.  An astute reader pointed out that the dance moves looked suspicially like Beyonce's "Single Ladies" video dance moves (beloved by single babies around the world).  Now it turns out that not only are Beyonce's moves similar to Gwen's, they are directly  cribbed from her. Here are the two videos intercut ... Read More

How about turning the corner and  pulling your skirt over your head? That's exactly what an inventor in Japan thinks women should do if they find themselves in these circumstances. Designer Aya Tsukioka's skirt can be worn by day, then turned into a (realistic?) vending-machine disguise when needed, simply by flipping ... Read More
Here at BUST, we've always been supportive of other feminists. Always. We don't hold a narrow view of what feminism means, and understand that there are different ways of being feminist. We helped promote Bitch magazine in it's earliest days. We've never trashed Ms. We've always  thought feministing.com  was a cool and important website. Alas, our other sisters in crime are not nearly as generous. In this weekend's New York Times, Jessica Valenti, editor ... Read More
Ah, Internets! You so funny. In this wonderful video, Gwen Verdon's awesome Bob Fosse dance number, "Mexican Breakfast" (??)  from some time in the 70s is given subtitles to explain what each dance move is trying to say, and it's just one of those wonderful things you can watch over and over and over again. If this doesn't make you laugh on a crabby Monday morning, you should probably go see the doctor. Check out the vid after the jump, and enjoy.   You ... Read More
