Ah, Valentine’s Day. The annual event can conjure up a bevy of emotions for people in any stage of a relationship. So whether you’re feeling Single As Fuck, or floating in a sea of marital bliss, we can agree that all anybody wants on this day is to feel… good. If that kind of good comes in the form of an extra large cheese pizza for one or a massive sushi boat for two (or more) then by all means, you do you. But in the dwindling hours of ... Read More
In the seemingly endless fight to end discrimination and promote marriage equality, a new bright spot has appeared on the horizon. Yesterday, Alabama became the 37th state in the nation where gay marriage is legally recognized. Cue rampant applause and a couple of fist pumps for good measure. Unfortunately, the ruling has already met resistance in the form of staunch Republican chief justice Roy Moore, who you might remember from his 2003 ejection from the bench ... Read More
  With the imminent release of Fifty Shades of Grey, as well as the return of naked-lady-centric Game of Thrones, it seems that Hollywood is in no rush to diversify its representations of women experiencing the big O onscreen. We all know the look- just picture the infamous When Harry Met Sally scene to refresh- mouth dropped open in euphoria, back arched, eyes closed with nary a weird twitch or unbecoming grimace in sight. Call me crazy, or perhaps someone ... Read More
  A new year means a new budget, and not just for those of you trying to cut back on Seamless or new shoes, but the federal government as well. On Monday, President Obama revealed the 2016 fiscal year proposal to more than a few cheers and naysayers. Amidst the military-heavy tax increases, the $4 trillion deal includes significant changes to Social Security benefit regulations for same-sex couples. FINALLY. Under the current policy, if a same-sex couple ... Read More
 In this day and age, everyone understands the power of a well-executed Valencia filter. But let’s get real: that morning muffin might have looked awash in a golden halo of soft light, but we all know that it was shoved into the depths of a purse about 60 seconds later for a crowded commute. Everyday life is decidedly less glamorous than how many of us portray it on our various social media accounts – Instagram especially – and yet we are ... Read More
Forget your triple tall morning espresso. There’s a faster way to get your blood boiling: a hearty dose of mansplaining: Russell Crowe, the de facto emissary of all things misogynistic, is at it again. The 50-year-old star of the upcoming film "The Water Diviner" told Australian Women’s Weekly, “To be honest, I think you’ll find that the woman who is saying that [the roles have dried up] is the woman who at 40,45,48, still wants to play the ...

Blistering musical auteur and former BUST cover girl PJ Harvey is all set to lay down her new album—over the course of a month-long exhibit entitled Recording in Progress, and in front of a live audience. After a nearly four-year recording hiatus following the release of 2011’s Let England Shake (which also won her a second Mercury Prize, nbd), Harvey’s newest endeavor and tenth record will waver between a studio LP and a live album. The 3,000 ... Read More
As many of you BUSTies know, the holiday season is in full swing, and unless you’ve been hiding out under a rock, or hibernating in the depths of your over-heated apartment, that usually means a fair amount of travel. Plane, train, automobile or whatever the method, schlepping your tired limbs and overcrowded luggage across state lines can be understandably exhausting.  Well, fret no more, weary travelers, because a certain cat, or girl if you want to ...

  Raise your hand if you’re a fan of the occasional Throwback Thursday ‘gram? I know I’ve definitely posted a 20+ year old photo of little ol’ me rocking some serious 90’s swag: leggings, jean jacket, tattoo necklace, an adorable pair of baby Docs. It’s fun to reminisce not only about the trends of the era, but your own blossoming personal style from toddler-hood to preteen to high school ... Read More
2014 was, by most accounts, a pretty rad year for the ladies in the crowd. Politically, we’ve got more woman than ever before in Congress (100 to be exact), the first African-American Republican Congresswoman,  and a blatant smack down of  extreme anti-abortion laws. Women have thoroughly flexed their social media muscles, creating trending hashtags like #YesAllWomen, #WhyIStayed and #WhyILeft that united women and allies against violence, misogyny ... Read More
