We've been fans of duo songstresses Smoke Fairies since their debut release Through Low Light and Trees back in 2011. The British gals, Katherine Blamire and Jessica Davies, have fine-tuned their haunting harmonized vocals and powerful dual guitarwork over the past six years. Smoke Fairies put an eerily brilliant spin on blues rock by incorporating classic folk elements into their sound, especially on tracks like "Let Me Know" and "Awake." The psych-folk ladies ...

It was back in 2004 that Dove first launched its Real Beauty Campaign aimed at changing society's accepted standards of beauty. Dove's models have realistic proportions, showcasing how beautiful women of all shapes and sizes are. You might remember one ad in particular that accentuated the unrealistic and even unhealthy sizes of Victoria's Secret models in comparison to Dove's. Now Dove has released their Real Beauty Sketches project, in which an FBI-trained ... Read More
Although cereal isn't the healthiest of breakfast options, this recipe helps bring some nutrition to the table. (Literally! HA.) I knew I had to have these when I read that this chef was inspired by Momofuku Milk Bar, one of my many bakery obsessions and one that specializes in delectable cereal milk. When crushing up the cereal, I suggest pouring it into a Ziploc bag and just breaking it up with your hands. (Or, as the recipe says, you can try a food processor.) ... Read More
Photoshop is often used to exaggerate and warp women's bodies into looking unnatural and adhering to impossibly high standards of beauty. Artist Nickolay Lamm and collaborating artist Nikolett Mérész decided to use photoshop to do good instead. After seeing the viral photo of Barbie without makeup by Eddi Aguirre, Lamm wanted to create more realistic versions of the more popular dolls. He deemed the Aguirre version too excessive, stating ... Read More

Video of the Day: Anika

BY Tess Duncan in Music

You know those dreams that you kind of remember but it's all a little fuzzy and you can only recall traces of images and blurs of movement? (Or maybe that's every dream. Either way...) Enter avant-garde songstress Anika's music video for "I Go To Sleep." We at BUST have loved Anika for awhile now, especially after interviewing her for our April/May of 2011 issue! The stark landscape and slow-mo action might make you feel lost in a dream of your own. The British ... Read More
Despite the stupid bra-burning feminist cliché, many of us are pretty grateful for some of the advantages of wearing a bra. They hide your nips from through-the-cloth display for all to see. If you’re big-breasted, they provide great support for all that weight. Even if you’ve got smaller boobs, it can still be uncomfortable to run without one. However, a French study has found that we might want to cut this piece out of our closets. The ... Read More
Upon listening to Go Find Your Own, you would never guess that garage-rockers Pony Time are a two-piece. The Seattle duo, made up of bassist/guitarist/vocalist Luke Beetham and drummer Stacey Peck, seem to magically fill out their '80s-inspired sound to perfection and find themselves in a league of their own with this record. At first you might be bobbing your head, thinking, "Yeah okay, I can dig this. I'm into grunge-y shit." You're loving their reverb-filled ... Read More
Headpieces can be a little intimidating, especially if you're not used to changing up your hairstyle often. (I'm usually too lazy to do anything more than blow-dry my hair before leaving the house.) Maybe you, too, own some super cool fascinators but have yet to rock them because of your fear of improperly securing them and then looking like a crazy person when it falls off. BUT NOW we've got this awesome chignon tutorial to give us the perfect hair for any ... Read More
Nothing says summer like homemade lavender ice cream! I saw this recipe and lost my ability to even. I remember once when I went to a lavender farm in the South and experienced uber-refreshing, homemade lavender lemonade. Sipping that stuff on a hot July day in a rocking chair on the front porch of the farmhouse seemed like a dream at the time. As it turns out, homemade lavender ice cream is an equally yummy treat to beat the heat. (I'm a poet and I didn't realize ... Read More
With warmer weather comes a season of colorful, cool treats to make. It's still early on, so let's keep it simple. These "jigglers" (AKA itty-bitty gelatin desserts) only require three ingredients and three steps! I'm not usually one for "mini-desserts," but these guys are simultaneously scrumptious and adorable so I fell for 'em. Sweet, bite-sized, and easy to make, what more could you ask for in a spring recipe? What you’ll need:  12 oz gelatin, any 4 ... Read More
