That looks like a dorm room.  Boring, drab, nothing special AT ALL.

Of course she's being showered with compliments, though.  JUST BRILLIANT.

Haha no kidding. Her room isn't "simple and serene." It's boring. Much like her dull personality.

And this — "There’s still a lot left to do until the room will feel complete – like tracking down a cozy rug, reupholstering our bench, and finding new bedside tables" — is ridic. Who talks about "tracking down" a rug? It's not some kind of perilous expedition. Just go to Ikea and spend 10 minutes looking at rugs like a normal person. Ugh.

Wha…? Sorry, but I object to the rug comment. We seriously spent months looking for the perfectly-worn, perfect-colored Persian rug in our bedroom. It was $400, but is almost 100 years old and about 100 times nicer than any Ikea rug.

 

Sorry, but I don't get hating on someone for seeking out things they like for their home.

It's one thing to seek out the things you like for your home, another to talk about it in a super shitty, generic blog post that you got paid to do and expect people fawn over you or even find it interesting.

I'm writing this from beyond the grave because that comment killed me.

Also, in her new video, she said to put the bronzer wherever the sun naturally hits, and then proceeded to put it everywhere on her face except for like her upper lip. I don't get it.

And did she say "illuminzing" instead of "illuminating"?

That said, I did like the video because I'm in my geedee thirties and still don't understand makeup and makeup accessories.

Um … I'm happy for you and your perfect $400 rug? Personally I could not imagine spending months(!) of my life rug-shopping because that sounds excruciatingly boring, but whatever floats your boat. My rugs are from Target and Urban Outfitters and they do the job just fine. 

 

And if you "don't get hating on someone," why are you on GOMI?

How does she still have so many random things left to do to her boring bedroom anyway? She was featured on some apartment website (forgot the name) a year or so ago talking about how lovely her place was. It's not like she has a real job to go to!

I love me some leather clothing, but man, that leather dress is a brown sack filled with fug.  I checked it out on the Gap website and it costs $299.

 

I suspect that the dress, like many other items featured on her blog, was "gifted" or c/o'ed.  She is not always completely transparent as to who is supplying the constant stream of high end trendy items photographed on her blog, but I strongly doubt that she is buying all of them with her own money.    Case in point: the $1000 Mulberry Bayswater bag that has shown up in some of her Pepto Bismol-inspired outfits lately.  In a previous post, she mentioned that it was a gift from Mulberry, but in subsequent posts she passes it off as her own.  I suspect that most of her shit is actually gifts passed off as items she bought with her own cash.

 

Also, in regards to her compulsive urge to constantly redecorate her apartment: who does that to a rented space?  I can completely understand the need to personalize one's rented home, but really, what a colossal waste of effort for a space one does not even own.

I still don't get why she's so popular.  Sure, she takes pretty pictures; but she comes across to me as a bored rich girl who either spends all her money on pretty things or gets nice c/o, neither of which make her accessible to the average person.  I don't see a lot of interaction between her and the readers, so I don't know what brings people back.  Also, I don't think she's that stylish.  I don't understand how she makes a living off of this, but whatever, get it gurl.  At least she's just dull and not dull, lazy, and b***hy like Messi.

Why is the headboard so much bigger than their mattress? It looks off.

People who don't shop for rugs at IKEA?  I think the point is that the quarry is elusive, not that the effort is perilous.  It took me years to find a bedroom rug I love, so I sympathize.

Eitheror didn't say they didn't get "hating on someone", Eitheror said they didn't get hating on someone "for seeking out things they like." 

Some people enjoy looking at nice things.  I've spent time looking at Emma Gardner rugs I couldn't afford in this lifetime, never mind looking at rugs for one I plan on living with for the rest of my life. 

C&C is boring and her photos are weirdly cropped but wanting to track down the right rug or making her home look presentable in photos are just things (many) grown ups do.

I agree that a lot of people like to devote time to finding just the right something for their house; I do it myself with certain things and I get the whole thrill-of-the-hunt thing. I just think what's a little annoying about C&C's mention of it is that it seems that that's all she does. Find and buy, find and buy.

I dunno, she just projects such "perfection" to me, with new nails every other day . . . maybe I'm just bitter that I don't have that kind of time or limitless resources. But at least other bloggers who also love and showcase nice things also offer a post with more substance every now and then.

Her recent post basically confirms she is out of ideas for me. 'I'm so busy. Lots of technology. Need to have rest blah blah' and the same as usual photos. I kind of feel for her as it must be incredibly hard to come up with anything new after 4 years or however long she's been doing this. Looks like she's out of them. 

She also projects such an image of perfection, yet it's clear she and her fiance spend all their time on their iphones and other gadgets even when they were with her parents! That's not good.
