Christian Leggings Blogger Being Sued Because Of Some Trees

Veronica Partridge, the blogger who refuses to inspire lust in men with her yoga pants, is apparently being sued for cutting down some trees. Evidently she bought some property in Oregon, and according to the lawsuit proceeded to chop down six “ancient” juniper trees on someone else’s property in order to get “unobstructed views” of some mountains.

Nash kept about 20 acres of undeveloped land to the west of the property that she sold the Partridges. Some months after closing the sale, however, Nash was visiting her property when she discovered at least six large juniper trees had been cut…The Partridges didn’t ask Nash for permission — and the trees are clearly on Nash’s property, McGean said.

Her blog has now gone private. There is no word on what she was wearing while the trees were cut down.

Sam And Nia “Tolerated Past” Their “Welcome”

Sam, urine burglar half of Sam & Nia, was allegedly “kicked out” of Vlogger Fair after “threating [sic] to punch people”. In a now deleted tweet Samley Sadison whined:

Other conference goers were less than sympathetic.

This drama comes on the heels of Sam admitting he created an account on the hook up site Ashley Madison. His smugfaced admission video blames “fleshly desires” and “simple curiosity” while insisting that his wife and his Lord have forgiven him for his transgression because everyone is “sinful by nature”.

‘Ramshackle Glam’ – A Liveblogged Book Review

Well it’s finally Friday and I don’t know about you but it’s been a long, sweat and work filled week over here at Casa Fiestabritches. I actually planned on doing a different book this week; but to be honest, by the time I got home at noon I was just over all the braining I did the past 5 days. I mean my attention span is at nothing right now, hams. So I decided to do a lightweight old classic instead. So get out your eyeliner and coochie cutter denim shorts, because it’s time to read ‘Ramshackle Glam – The New Mom’s Haphazard Guide To (Almost) Having It All’ by Jordan Reid.

That Wife Is Now A Nudist

twnudist

Jenna Cole, 1/16 Jewish, is now 15/16th nudist. This weekend the uber feminist code warrior WAHM went out to a beach and ripped off her clothes and sobbed into the sand.

I felt my skin warming and the waves spraying and the wind kissing in a way I had never felt before, and it wasn’t long before I turned my back up to the sun so I could bury my face in my towel and cry…And then my new nudist friend Robert (who is somewhere around sixty years old and has an incredible ability to have a twenty minute conversation with a naked woman and not let his eyes wander once) photographed me using my iPhone…

Jenna ended her weekend of nudity by slamming drinks and writing code.

That Wife Now Apparently Jewish

Jenna Cole, future coder lady and solo work at home parent, has informed the internet that she is totally Jewish or something.

jewishwife

Not only is she “1/16 Jewish”, but she claimed her great-grandfather was “murdered for trying to save the Torah”. This is after she claimed during a 2008 during a trip to Auschwitz:

My mother’s side of the family has Jewish ancestors, and it is quite possible that many of them died in places like Auschwitz….We saw the names of people displayed on the wall who could possibly be related to us, and I got really excited about the opportunity to do some genealogy in Poland someday!

Since she was on the trip with her mother you’d think her mother would have told her, as they stood at the gate, all about this supposed great-grandfather. But whatever. Apparently “part Jewish” is the new “part Cherokee” because it seems like bloggers keep coming out to appropriate and/or align themselves with Jewish heritage.

Hey Natalie Jean Not Really Surprised By Move

Hey Natalie Jean, moving to Idaho, is already changing the narrative on the big event. She originally implied the decision had been sprung on her shortly before she announced the news.

…the Holbrooks are moving. Real fast like. Because that is my Brandon’s way. Advance notice is not something redheads seem to excel at much.

She now says she’s known for like ever but didn’t say anything so her husband could, I guess, quit his job on his own timeline.

Brandon’s had this offer in his back pocket for just over two months. As in, who knew I could keep a secret this long?!

Their apartment was put back on the market a week ago so I guess the big move is happening before August.  But who cares about any of this??!! I want to see which fangirl moves into her omgloft and starts squeeing all over instagram about it, and what persona HNJ settles on once she’s out west. Maybe she’ll swap Anne Shirley for Caddie Woodlawn? Maybe she’ll go Katie Granju chicken farmer? What is she going to do with all those stress inducing rugs?

Am I really the only person who thinks this is the only interesting thing she has done in forever? It should at least be as fun to watch as Jordan Reid’s big move and new persona.

Travel Bloggers Confess Their Instagram Is Mostly Lies

twins
Claire and Laura, apparently twins who blog about travel, have put up a post explaining their aspiration filled travelgram is a reality that “doesn’t exist”. Saying “it’s time to set the record straight…and suggest that in reality, Instagram means living a lie”, the twins listed all the reasons you need to stop assuming they are wealthy globetrotters just because that’s what they suggest on their social media.

Saying their lives have been “pretty messy this year and it’s been far from a series of glamorous holidays and care-free travels”, they nevertheless continued posting breathtaking travel photos because obviously real life can’t be allowed to “get in the way of that ‘i’m so carefree and happy’ attitude that dominates Instagram.”

And though their blog and gram portray a fabulous life full of expensive looking, glamour soaked travel, the twins assure us they “work full-time and juggle mortgages with fairly concerning shopping addictions” and promise their lives are “far from glamorous, wealthy or perfect”.

Moral of this post? Remember, when you see that photo of a beautiful beach, we’re probably loading it up as we clean the toilet or are lying in bed trying to wake up. Reality bites.

So basically they are no better than Zilla? I guess I’m just super confused as to the point of this post. I mean…thanks for the honesty, but if bloggers want to portray an expensive looking fabulous lifestyle on the intarwebs it seems a bit disingenuous to get all defensive when people come to the conclusion that they are, indeed, living an expensive and fabulous lifestyle. If you don’t want strangers to assume your curated life is your real life then maybe don’t show strangers only a curated life?

Bloggers Rush To Snapchat As Monetization Begins

IMG_1046

ShopStyle recently announced a “Snap Hub” in an attempt to help bloggers monetize their Snapchat posts, and suddenly everyone is joining the social media platform because money. Some, like Love Taza, don’t seem 100% into it yet; Naomi announced her account by saying she is “trying [it] out for a little while although I’m still not totally sold on it all”. But fashion bloggers are already starting to sign up and shove snapstyle affiliate linking onto their followers, directing them to the ShopStyle hubs to “shop my look”.

There is no word on whether RewardStyle – the affiliate link behemoth that helped turn instagram into a liketoknowit link graveyard – is working on a similar program. Maybe now that Periscope is picking up speed RS may skip Snapchat altogether and go for monetization of live streaming video. Because everyone knows every social media platform ever anywhere must be monetized, and it’s all about who provides that capability first.

Gala Darling Announces Separation

galadivorce

Gala Darling, author of (what she calls) the “best-selling book” ‘Radical Self Love‘, has announced the end of her four year marriage.

After 4 years of marriage, my husband and I have decided to go our separate ways. While Mike (and Dolly) have moved out, we are still extremely close friends and will continue to work together on my site, as we have been doing the whole time we’ve been together. We’re both excited to move onwards and upwards, and I’m so thankful that we have been able to end things amicably and with a lot of love.

Speculation about the status of her union began over a week ago.

It seems another one of her projects may also be coming to and end: the ‘Blogcademy‘. A few days ago she announced the last two classes in San Francisco and New York City, adding “these will probably be our last American classes ever”. She said there might be one last class in “London, probably… But that might be it!”

Gala has been busy recently jetting around the world on what, in hindsight, appears to be some sort of ‘Sex And The City post-breakup getaway to Mexico’ trip. No word on what new projects she has in the works. We assume she is currently creating vision boards and practicing gratitude.
