We’ve just cleared the first week of December, and I’m sure that for some, holiday exhaustion is already rearing its ghastly, tinsel-encrusted, eggnog-stained head. If you’ve already had your fill of the overplayed holiday pop standards that dominate the airwaves this time of year, fear not. There is hope on the horizon.   Sufjan Stevens, everyone’s favorite musical Michigander (or mine, at least), has just released a new Christmas rap mixtape called Chopped and Scrooged. Read More

November is my favorite time of the year, from pumpkin-spice everything to the gluttony of Thanksgiving and, of course, my birthday! When it comes to the holiday season, I love buying presents for others (and for myself!), so I thought I'd put together a collection of some of my favorite items of the moment, many from adorable Etsy shops I recommend exploring. Hopefully they can give you ideas for Christmas shopping to come! My first items are these fanciful, handmade pastel oxfords. All the pastels are completely covetable, but I'm really digging the pink ones. Read More

There are various opinions on the day that is Valentine's Day, but me? I love it. I like hearts. I like candy. I like the color pink. I'm all for it. I'm also all for post-Valentine's Day candy sales (yum!). I think Valentine's Day is as good a day as any to spread a little love in the world, whether that means sending your bestie surprise macaroons from the macaroon queen, buying yourself a little "something something," spending quality time with your bf/gf, or just smiling to strangers a bit more (not in a creepy way).

Here at BUST HQ, we have coffee on the brain. We’re in a perpetual state of drinking it, discussing it, and trying to coerce the lovely interns into heading outside and buying it. Caffeine addicts like us can’t imagine a better holiday gift than a subscription to Craft Coffee’s monthly service. Every month, your giftee gets a box of three different coffees, each from an artisan roaster in the U.S. For between $20 and $25 a month (depending on the length of your subscrip), it’s way cheaper than a daily Starbucks/Stumptown habit, and way more fun.
