We love coming across companies you can actually feel good about buying from: Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab is one of our favorite aromatic retailers, and everything they produce is tested on staff, friends, and family—never animals. They also use fair-trade and self-sustaining growers whenever possible. Not to mention the dozen or so independent artists commissioned to create their beautiful labels. How’s that for conscious consumerism? BPAL, owned and ... Read More
We’re really digging the new EP from Swedish trio OLD. We don’t know too much about OLD but they are fairly NEW and the band is comprised of 3 friends, Johanna Tham, Constance Holmbäck and, Nina Sigurd who started making music in their apartment in Malmö 2 years ago, recorded one EP and recently moved to a studio to record four new fun, feminist songs. I’m a sucker for 3 part harmonies but coupled with lyrics like “hormones stole ... Read More
Happy Monday! While you're sipping your coffee, maybe you also spend a few minutes going over what happened last week to launch you into this one, yes? Yes. LET'S DO THIS. Women in Congress are breaking records and taking names, and we're not just talking about the Notorious RBG. Hey, Hollywood might be working on its lack of diversity... or maybe not. A new fitness campaign is giving us great body positive vibes by reminding us 'to jiggle is to be.' Points for ... Read More
Emma Watson has warmed our hearts and empowered our vaginas once again!   Some of you may recall the speech she delivered at the UN earlier in 2014. It was there that she announced her campaign HeforShe, a "solidarity movement for gender equality that brings together one half of humanity in support of the other half of humanity.” Watson’s efforts have been doing just that: She was joined by UN leader Ban Ki-Moon who said, “HeForShe has ...

We feel like we’ve succeeded if, at some point during the day, we get you to say “Awww!” and “Fuck yeah!” at the same time. So now we would like to introduce 102 year-old Iona and 109 year-old Jessie Gallan, two women who are totally down with the important things in life. One of those important things? Kitties! Iona recently visited Montgomery County Animal Shelter in Conroe, Texas, and left with her newest companion, Edward, and ... Read More
    Yesterday, House GOP members passed abortion legislation banning federal funding for abortions. The legislation was substituted for a more strict bill that would have capped abortions at 20 week, and being pushed for by right-wingers who claim a 20-week-old fetus may feel or perceive some pain during the procedure. Though we’re glad that one was shelved (for now), the new legislation  negatively affects the health of hundreds of ... Read More
Rejoice, for the newly-liberated nipple is being joined by other body bits! Instagram is finally making some progress on its stance about what constitutes “obscenity.” Like the Victorian institution it has time-and-again proven itself to be, the company recently took down an account for the Australian online mag Sticks and Stones when it posted a pubic hair-prominent pic:   This censorship perfectly aligns with society's fucked up standards of ...

For a mere $250,000 (and a raccoon free environment) you can rent the historic Grey Gardens estate in the East Hamptons this coming summer. The mansion was restored to its original beauty by journalist, Sally Quinn and her husband, the late Washington Post editor, Ben Bradlee—the couple brought new life into the previously cat-infested and decaying 10-bedroom, 6.5 bathroom home. We all know the story of Big and Little Edie who, during the 1970’s, lived ... Read More
So many of our favorite shows in the last couple years have been released through Netflix (here's looking at you House of Cards and Orange is the New Black). But there's a new one on its way that we're literally squealing about  like happy newborn piglets. Tina Fey paired up with the distributing channel to make Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, a show about a doomsday cult survivor—played by BUST fave Ellie Kemper—who begins life completely anew in NYC ...

  Maybe you remember Cannibal Cop - maybe you don't. Just in case, we'd like to refresh your memory:  Last july, NYC cop Gilberto Valle had his conviction overturned. Conviction for whatyou ask? Wanting to eat women, and not in the sexy way we all appreciate. According to BBC, Valle spent 20 months in jail after his wife found documents that notated plans to murder her then turn her into an entree. There were also documents in existence that discussed ...
