Lauren Bullen Fan Can SWF At A Terrifyingly Expert Level

Lauren Bullen has a popular travel instagram. It is so popular that one of her fans decided to copy her. No…I mean REALLY copy her. Like recreate her entire instagram kind of copy her.

wtf

Lauren put up a post showing a dozen or so other examples of “diana_alexa” and her wackydoodle copycat gram.

…the amount of time and pre-organising she put into arranging the outfits, I don’t promote and tag everything I wear, so that would have taken a lot of time and work, even down to the anklets and necklace. Not to mention the cost of all this- those outfits and accommodations don’t come at a cheap price…

Lauren decided the “fan” had gone “next level” and decided to confront her.

…when I messaged her about discovering her page and how crazy and ridiculous I thought it was she tried to justify it by just saying everyone copies us and even big accounts are taking same pictures at the same place & told me I should make my pictures private if I don’t want this to happen…

And we thought those girls trying to copy Taza were weird!

Bloggers React To Election About How You’d Expect

In case you hadn’t heard, America had an election Tuesday and despite bloggers’ instagram and snapchat campaigns, Trump made it to the Oval. Now most bloggers are coping the only way they know how – publicly.

Jordan Reid at Ramshackle Glam, known for her intellectual think pieces, can’t seem to get back on track.

As a writer, I have no idea how to return to my regular schedule of cute shoes and funny parenting stories, or how to sit down today and start moving through to a to-do list that includes such imperatives as “start compiling holiday gift guide,” and “post flat-lay to IG.”

She has apparently rallied with a new post about an “action plan” that is basically her informing us how super involved she is in her community and btw did you know she has battled anxiety for decades. She then suggests you go sign a change.org petition “calling upon the Electoral College to fix this” and tells you to go donate to a bunch of things. Because if having a tantrum doesn’t work, throw money at the problem. That’s the rich American white girl way!

Jessica Quirk got straight to the point.

I can’t bring myself to say much today, I’m still in a state of shock, so I’m just going to post my outfit.

The instagram prairie mamas are either silent or pushing an agenda of quiet acceptance and hugs – the typical resigned-smile, everything-will-be-fine position that hetero suburban sahms of comfortable means can easily afford to embrace. Mama Watters doesn’t want to talk about politics, instead posting about a poem which is basically an excuse to inform you she doesn’t read her inspirational stuff from some kindle like you fast living monsters.

I have on my bedside table a few books of blessings, prayers, and poetry for times such as this. They are small and linen-bound, full of comfort and wisdom. The light-filled words inside them give me perspective in times of worry, growth, longing, exhaustion, new beginnings, thanksgiving and despair…

Jenna Cole, voting absolutely, posted some bizarre attempt to sound deep.

All things that die have the potential to feed new life. If we’ll just plant and tend to the seeds, they will grow. I’m thinking about those seeds a lot today. What will be my part in transforming this follow-feeling space into something beautiful in the days ahead?

I assume she meant “fallow” which would still be a questionable use of the word, but whatever. Very profound, much feminist.

And then there’s Cupcakes and Cashmere who (probably wisely) kept politics off her glitter and cake pop filled Home For Glossier Intern Program Rejects. She posted something about “Unexpected Holiday Glam” and then that Alina chick posted about “loving disco fever”.

So, happy post-election Friday! Welcome to the New (Same As Before Just With Different Rich White Men In Charge) America!

Kelly Wants You To Watch Her Daughter Do This

Today in “why did you post that?” news, Kelly Stamps, likes Jesus and Sonic, posted a bizarre Instagram story of her small daughter pawing herself in the car.

Ok it’s redacted all to howdy, but you get the idea. I guess I just don’t understand why this activity needs to be posted to a public instagram account.

Stasia2point0 Has A New GoFundMe

Stasia Bowen, lost 100 lbs one time and has been coasting on that success for two years, has a long history of begging on the internet. Well she’s apparently broke again and back to holding a fire sale and GoFundMe. In a gram post she writes a novel length caption attempting to explain why she needs your money.

…today I was presented with an eviction notice…Last week I went three days without electricity…My cell service also is currently off. I’ve postponed my VSG surgery as well, which is devastatingly heartbreaking…Anyway, I am selling anything possible. And this is something that will hopefully get me enough money to pay everything I need to…I will be okay though!!! I want you all to know that. I always make life work.

She has spent the past few months flying first class to Younique conferences and buying Macbooks to “prove haters wrong” and just generally acting like a big baller #girlboss, so many people are baffled as to how she is suddenly being evicted and having utilities shut off. Thankfully a “friend” of hers has – of course – started a GoFundMe, to which Stasia added yet another statement that is so long and detailed it makes The Gulag Archipelago seem like a take out flyer. Saying she has “never been good at managing money” Stasia goes on to sell herself as a deserving recipient of donations.

I have never had a savings account, my bills are often late, I have always lived paycheck to paycheck. I have had utilities and phones shut off COUNTLESS times over the years. So in the last year, while I really finally was making good money… I spent it! I felt like my business would always be amazing and never imagined it would take a gigantic dive like it did. I didnt save it. I joyously spent it. Like MANY people would do.

Really makes you want to dig out those credit cards, eh? But it’s ok because she promises she is “looking for jobs”. Pony up, internets!
