This blog probably has a very small audience, though a shout out in the New York Times probably gave it a decent (if not long lasting?) boost.  I admit that I may just not "get" bridal blogs… because I'm one of those who thinks the bulk of planning should be about your MARRIAGE and not the hours-long party to celebrate it. And if your focus really is on the things that matter, well, I just don't see how you could have THAT much time and energy left for the crap that this chick spews on and on about.  

 

And maybe that's what bothers me about her… she wants to be both.  She wants to seem deep and meaningful, but the bulk of her writing is about shoes and pink glitter.  She hosted a $100k+ wedding (at a minimum) but then says she's a champion for the homeless?  This skeptic just can't be on board with that.  If you quit your day job to focus on writing a blog that's 99% about the shallow stuff (as she did), I'm sorry, but yes, you are shallow.  Even if you totally care, like, a lot!, about pressing social problems.

 

I know the author personally, though not well, so I suppose the fact that I already find her irksome doesn't bode well for my impression of her blog.

Just the name of the blog gives me all kinds of feminist creeps.

I'm getting a major "gold digger with boring douche of a rich husband" vibe from this one. Am I right on that LazyDaisy? Just something about him asking her to be his girlfriend at a cigar bar combined with his relative doughiness.

Cockahoop– you're pretty much right on.  She's the kind of girl that seems to get that her superficiality makes her shallow, but she clings to it anyway. A more subtle brand of gold digger… but a gold digger nonetheless. 

 

Her husband was by her side when she was sick, ya'll.  That makes their love so SPECIAL!  As though "in sickness and in health" is, like, totally exclusive to their vows!

I checked this blog out after seeing it posted here and wow this girl reeks gold digger. Her materialism coupled with no job basically means she's fully tapping into her hubby's funds. I'm starting to think "I'm unemployed, but writing a novel" is the English major cop out for gold digger.

I clicked on this thread only to complain about the name. GROSS. Have fun with planning your pre-divorce party, idiot.

She strikes me as the kind of girl that grew up with less money than her friends and wants to keep up with the Joneses. She only wanted to go to Europe because all her college friends had been. She wanted to get engaged because all her friends were engaged. She even tallies the amount of Michelin star restaurants she's been to while on a single vacation. Oh and she had 2 bachelorette parties because she did not want to be outdone by her husband. This girl grosses me out.

How is this blog popular? It certainly isn't overly helpful if your planning a wedding. It just seems to be a shrine to her wedding and how great/supportive/amazing her husband is.
I always give a side eye to numerous and overly gushy posts about significant others….. It just always seems like they are trying to convince themselves and the Internet they are in love.

Uh, I didn't realize that maternity clothes shopping meant raiding the little girl's clothes racks at Target like Bethanny Frankel. I have a long torso and when pregnant I actually looked it past 18 weeks on. I saw no bump in those pictures. I don't see how she's over 20 weeks pregnant and not showing at this point.

I haven't had a child yet, but it seems like if you're "maternity shopping" at a kids section chances are you don't need maternity clothes yet. Especially since she has a long torso. I would think that a long torso + a baby bump would have a kid sized top too short. She's probably looking for an excuse to shop considering there is barely a bump.

By 20 weeks or so, she should be showing decently since it's well over half way into the pregnancy. Most women start really showing by this point. If you looked at the picture, the kids top seemed ill fitting on her and downright embarrassing actually.

I agree. The top part rides way too high. It should sit below her breasts. Something tells me posting about going to the kids section was a humble brag like the rest of her blog. Am I the only one that thought it was weird when she said her mom generously bought her maternity clothes? It reminded me of my high school and college days having to ask my parents for things. I would think that her mom would be showering her with gifts for her future grandchild. I guess that's what life is like for a feminist that is jobless and being supported by hubby and mommy.

She spent over 100k on a wedding and she has the nerve to talk about budgets?! And her budget tips are to sell things and paint your own nails…so that's what I am doing wrong! eek

And why does she call her husband Joshy?
