  We've been fans of Gemma Correll's artwork ever since we laid eyes on her infamous 'Pugs Not Drugs' tote bags.   The mega-talented illustrator was part of the line-up at the first ever London Craftacular in 2008, and we're over the moon that Gemma is a vendor again this Sunday (especially after the manager at a previous Craftacular venue told her off for bringing her pug along for the day. Sorry again about that Gemma...) As if our hearts weren't ... Read More

Review by Jenni Miller: Reese Witherspoon gets admirably down and dirty in this adaptation of Cheryl Strayed’s best-selling memoir about her trek along the Pacific Crest Trail. It’s a trip she’s barely prepared for; unlike the more experienced hikers she meets along the way, her bag is unwieldy and full of things she doesn’t really need, and she’s not nearly ready for the physical travails of the task, from bloody toenails to crapping ...

The Babadook is a thrilling throwback to the golden age of psychological horror movies, where the real sources of terror are the things lurking in the shadows of our minds. Amelia (Essie Davis) is a harried single mom whose son Samuel (Noah Wiseman) finds a creepy book on his shelf. With its spare letters and simple drawings of a lurking figure in a top hat and overcoat, Mr. Babadook is utterly terrifying to Samuel, and it unsettles Amelia too. She hides it, she ... Read More

The Boston Globe reports on the atmosphere for women in gaming stating, "The billion dollar video game industry is growing quickly with the explosion of mobile gaming, but... Female game characters are hyper sexualized, and female workers are frequently subjected to unequal treatment, harassment, and ... Read More

Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn.), has announced that she will resign from her position after her viral Facebook rant reprimanding the Obama girls for their appearance at the annual White House turkey pardoning.

In September, we highlighted "8 Kick-Ass Subscription Boxes To Mail Yourself" on the BUST blog, but there's a couple of UK-based ones that deserve a shout-out too. First up is Lucky Dip Club, "a super fun world of handmade and vintage all packaged up into surprise monthly boxes created by me: Leona Thrift-ola". The monthly themed boxes are a visual treat, full of vintage, slightly kitsch charm, from stationery and jewellery to accessories and homewares – ...
