Barefoot Blonde Has Like, A Lump, But Like, She’s Getting It Checked, And Like

Amber Clark, the blogger famous for her ratty blonde hair and towering intellect, like, found a lump in her breast. She made the announcement via snapchat through the licking dog filter. She explained that it’s like, a huge lump in like, her breast, but it’s like, been there for months so like, she just now went and had it checked out but like, they think it’s benign. At this point her husband David pops in to let snapchat know he told Amber they could just cut it out there at home because like, their copay is like, way high.


The hilarious husband.

Amber rambled on through a few more snaps about how she thought it was just a nursing duct issue even though the lump like, changed the shape of her breast. But like, they said it’s probably nothing so like, sorry for getting you all upset!



Let’s thank Amber for reminding her followers that it’s National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and that no matter how young you are you should always bring up changes to your body with your GP as soon as possible. Oh wait, she didn’t do any of that? Well what the f*** was the point then???

Freckled Fox Making It Clear She Has Moved On

Emily Meyers continues to share her special brand of grieving with her latest post.

Here’s to a great new week…I’m seeing such positive changes everywhere, for the kids especially. The future feels so bright, but every day holds so much enthusiasm for them.

What-the-Fox? Didn’t their father JUST DIE? Like 3 months ago? Anyway, her goals for the next week include “wearing more than shades of black and gray” and “filming some family videos” – presumably by “family” she means her spanking new husband and her kids.

And in case it’s not clear that getting back to being a happy family lifestyle blogger just can’t happen fast enough for Emmy, she concludes by asking “what type of posts I haven’t shared in awhile that you’d personally like to see come back”. Yep, that reset button has been smacked and we all just need to get back to hair tutorials and instagram dumps and affiliate links. At least she seems to be shutting down the fundraisers finally, so, there’s that.

The Freckled Fox Has Already Remarried

Emily Meyers, of Freckled Fox fame, has finally announced her weeks old remarriage. Roughly 90 days after putting her “sweetheart” in the ground, she has decided she is “ready to move forward”.

…I’m ready to share some news that I’ve been keeping to myself for the last little while. I’m ready to introduce you to Richard…When I became engaged to Martin, Richard and I parted ways as friends. We didn’t reconnect until very recently, and things started moving fast between us. We had grown so close all those years ago, and were very much able pick up where we’d left off.

Her late husband’s family seems less than thrilled about the whole thing, with family members who attempt to comment on her instagram allegedly being deleted and blocked. One finally took to facebook to make their side heard in a now deleted post.


Opponents of the rapid remarriage are calling it “gross”, “shady af”, “disrespectful”, and “Just. Nuts.”

Moldovans Lose Appeal, Andrea Polito Might Be Writing A Book

Neely Moldovan, of Polito v. Moldovan fame, might want to hurry up and decorate that nursery while she still has money left. She and her husband, who last year went viral with their tales of drama concerning wedding photographer Andrea Polito, lost their appeal last month and things seem to be sliding straight into Craptown for the couple. A post by Brian Mullins states:

…Andrea and APP are waiting for a new court date to be set as the Appellate court decision to throw out the motion to dismiss has cleared the way for the lawsuit to proceed. The original cap of $1 million dollars no longer applies and the court can choose to award any monetary amount for punitive damages.

The author says this case should leave people “absolutely gutted that over a misunderstanding of $125, the clients and media felt it was okay to absolutely torch a business” simply to ““settle the score” through the ever elusive “viral” story”.

Andrea Polito is evidently moving on professionally – the post claims she is “finalizing a book which not only talks about what happened and how she dealt with the social shaming, but how she not only kept her head above water during a very difficult time”, and says she has “a few speaking engagements lined up to discuss how social shaming has affected her and how to move forward.”

Bloggers Left Unpaid As Mode Media Suddenly Shuts Down

Screen Shot 2016-09-18 at 8.03.51 AM Screen Shot 2016-09-18 at 11.01.56 AM Screen Shot 2016-09-18 at 11.02.08 AM

Mode Media, “a publisher for fashion and lifestyle bloggers”, announced it is shutting down.

Brisbane’s Mode Media has abruptly shut down, leaving bloggers unpaid, investors frustrated and rumors swirling in its wake…The company, a publisher of lifestyle sites and operator of an ad network which placed big brands’ campaigns on smaller websites, told investors and employees Thursday that it was closing its doors after failing to find a buyer or line up financing.

Bloggers are naturally furious, most claiming they haven’t been paid and demanding to know wtf happened. They have created a twitter hashtag #ModeOwesBloggers, and started a Facebook group to try and figure out what to do next. One blogger insists it’s not about the money, while saying “it’s the time I spent putting these campaigns together. I invested a lot of my own money into creating the content, all the while thinking, it’s OK because I can put it back into my savings soon…” Another blogger explained why the closing is a blow for bloggers who were tied to the Mode Media ad network.

If you were part of the ad network…you were tied to an exclusivity contract for at least a year and couldn’t be a part of any other networks…which hurts like hell now for some bloggers because not only did Mode close without notice, they were months behind in payment.

There are some who think the closing should come as no suprise – over a month ago Dianna Mullins posted a “Farewell Letter” to Medium hinting at possible problems.

Ego must be put aside. The vision must be for the good of the whole never just for the individual. If competing visions and misalignment occurs at the core level with this team, it is imperative that issues be resolved quickly. The company must come first, even if it means breaking up the entity into smaller parts, to allow each to find its path. Some may succeed, others may fail, but this ensures the entire entity does not fall.

While some panic over what this “might signify for the blogging industry” others are rushing to remind everyone that possible mismanagement at one company does not spell doom for the blog advertising structure as a whole.

Lauren Can’t Wait To Honor 9/11


Lauren, of Southern Elle Style which is apparently some kind of wannabe lifestyle blog, posted a moving tribute in honor of the events of 15 years ago. Holding a mug inscribed with the word “Joy” and pigeon toeing while sitting down, Lauren proceeds to tell the world she is

Extremely and utterly exhausted from yesterday, but I can only imagine how many people felt like that and worse, 15 years ago and still today. Can’t wait to see how they honor the fallen and heroes, today at the Cowboys game…

Bloggers: if there is ever a day to not make about yourself, this might be it. Please just…don’t.

imogene + willie Founders Being Accused Of Fraud

imogene + willie, the selvedge denim darlings of the Nashville instagram hipster set, seems to be having some problems with their finances. Investors accuse the Eddmensons of using company money to “support a lavish lifestyle of personal indulgence” rather than “developing a wholesale business”.

In court papers, Celia Hughes, Imogene + Willie’s former chief financial officer, said the company’s accounting books contained many “red flags.”…She cited a $10,000 motorcycle, spa trips and home renovations such as a new bath, doors, furnishings and window treatments as examples of the Eddmensons’ mismanagement of company funds.

Matt Eddmenson’s personal instagram does feature a lot of motorcycles, so who knows. Anyway, apparently the latest financial statements show “61 percent of Imogene + Willie’s roughly $224,000 in bills are 90 days past due” and Robert Lamey and Paige Heid, the largest creditors of the company, are trying to force the company into chapter 11 bankruptcy  ”using an involuntary petition”.

So maybe pretty soon Jordana and Bleubird will have to find a new brand of status jeans run by a new hipster couple they can glom onto and instagram tag.
