Here at BUST we agree wholeheartedly that women belong in the House. But let’s make one thing clear: They belong in the Senate, too.

Yesterday, VoteRunLead announced the launch of their ambitious plan to get 50,000 women to run for political office by election day and 500,000 (yes half a million!) by 2016. The national nonpartisan organization will use its website as a platform and resource for women as they share the plan with friends, family, and anyone else they wish to nominate to run for office. This first step is called "Invitation Nation" and its success depends on people using the site to invite the talented and diverse women in their community. Read More

It’s no secret that we love Angel Haze here at BUST. She’s one of the most versatile hip-hop artists out there, unafraid to tackle deep sadness or go ovaries-to-the-wall aggressive with her lyrics.

Angel’s rap is still on point, but her fuzzed-out hook, layered over an alternately shimmery and spazzy beat, is the gorgeous centerpiece that holds the track together. Read More

Looking for that special item that'll take your living room from blah to MoMA? Well, look no further. This mobile pops against plain white walls (yo, landlords, what've you got against cool paint colors?) and will brighten up an unused corner of even the most low-ceilinged room. You can even hang it above your bed--I hear it induces colorful dreams.
Trust me, this colorful, geometric mobile will make any area in your home supercool.
