Recommend

I don’t recommend too many things on here, do I? I hope not. I don’t want to make it seem like I’m advertising rather than honest-to-goodness recommending.

Anyway.... I heartily recommend the magazine BUST (http://www.bust.com/). It’s girl-centric, alternative, edgy, crafty, sexy, sew-y, fat friendly, music-y and well written. I don’t really consider myself a “feminist” per se (I’m much more of a humanist), but much of the writing in the magazine might be considered ‘feminist’, so be forewarned if that bothers you. I happen to find it refreshing. Another side warning: the edginess means that there’s a lot of frank talk, “swear words”, sexuality and the like. Again, if your sensibilities are delicate, you may want to stick with a more mainstream mag. The articles themselves are interesting, but at the back of every issue, there are tons of alternative shopping resources all with fun, kitschy or koool websites – a great way to kill an afternoon! So, yeah, I’m just sayin...
