Many gals out there are anxiously awaiting the June 22nd premiere of Pixar’s Brave. Starring a feisty red-headed archer named Merida (voiced by Kelly MacDonald), this doesn’t look like your typical prince-saves-helpless-damsel flick. This defiant princess is determined to live a life as free as her flowing curls. So, when a dreadful curse is set upon her family, Merida sets out to save the day.
But don’t think this little lady is the first chick out there to tote a quiver and know how to use it. Read More

Recently, I was hanging out with a friend who told me that she has been obsessed with making Katniss Everdeen braids lately.

Tonight could be your lucky night, BUSTies. It's World Book Night in the UK, Ireland, and the United States.

We can't get enough of Katniss Everdeen.
Reading the books, I couldn't help but wonder how my friends and I would do in a fight to the death. Read More

Ever since Niki and the Dove’s debut EP popped up in the BUST office last fall, I’ve been dying to see them live (and blasting their spacey, technicolor dance pop on repeat at the gym). Last week at the Under the Radar day party, I managed to catch one of their many sets at SXSW, and they absolutely lived up to the hype I’d been building in my head for months. The rest of the crowd seemed to feel the same, because Niki and the Dove finally got them dancing, despite disgustingly humid weather that even the band admitted was sort of miserable. Read More
