Gala Darling Gets Radical Boob Job

Gala Darling, the “international playgirl” trying to be a “self-love” guru, has some feminist news. Five months after finally announcing the end of her marriage Gala has revealed she went under the knife and got a new pair of juicers.

In a rambling post she says she “never hated my B cups, and in fact, I never really thought about their size until this summer” (so, basically when she started dating a new guy? hm) and “started thinking about getting a boob job”. So she talked to a doctor and within hours was consulting an astrologist to determine the best date for the surgery. She claims post-surgery she “didn’t feel groggy at all…so I asked for my phone and started texting people”. She spent the day after surgery meditating and watching tv, and had “no bruising and practically zero pain”.

The next day, Thursday, I was back to normal life. I was on Periscope at 12.30pm, went for a walk, and was — for all intents and purposes — on track again. Every day, my chest became less tight and I had more range of motion. (Two weeks after surgery, I was able to do body weight exercise, and I returned to my normal exercise routine — using resistance — yesterday.)

After paragraphs of justification and dismissal of anyone judging her for basically tossing aside all her self-acceptance and self-love teachings, she tells us “In my opinion — which, let’s face it, is the only one that matters — it looks great.” She closed by saying a boob job has nothing to do with feminism, before instagramming a picture of her new boobs crammed into a sports bra with the word “feminist” on it.

Jess Lively Announces The “Conscious Completion” Of Her Marriage

Jess Lively, peddler of “living with intention” internet classes, has announced via podcast that she and her husband have chosen to consciously “complete” their marriage. Mr. Lively sounds absolutely thrilled about it.

I want people to know that I’m happy, that I’m not depressed, that I still love Jess, I look forward to still being close friends, I’m excited about our future lives, I cherish the past five years, and everything is okay. Really, everything is okay.

Jess made the announcement while interviewing fellow woo shoveler Katherine Woodward Thomas, the woman who gifted the world with the term “conscious uncoupling”.

‘Carrying On’ – A Liveblogged Book Review

Happy Friday, hams! It’s been a while since we did a book reading. I have a few lined up again, so let’s do a few over the next few weeks. Now, I was going to go to this today but I decided instead to bring you Ramshackle Glam‘s second book. So. Yeah. Sigh. Share my suffering as I slog through the painful prose of ’Carrying On: Style, Beauty, Décor (and More) for the Nervous New Mom’.

On to the TL;DR…

Atlantic/Pacific And Some Other Bloggers “Designed” Some Bags

Rebecca Minkoff is a pretty notorious blogger butt kisser, so I guess it’s no surprise she has “customized one of her best-selling bags for each blogger’s distinct style and the cities they call home”. Basically she released her Chanel boy bag knockoff looking thing in black, red, and pink and slapped three bloggers’ names on them.

If you’re interested (you’re not) the bloggers involved are Blair Eadie (of Atlantic-Pacific) Wendy Nguyen (of Wendy’s Lookbook) and Daniela Ramirez (of  Nany’s Klozet). The underwhelming collaboration can be seen here – they are supposedly limited edition runs of only 100 bags each, but they’ve been out for a week and seem in no danger of selling out.

So there ya go, enjoy some boring news from fashion blogging land. It was either this or Messica’s new haircut, and I figured an update on which bloggers Minkoff is diddling this week was less of a trainwreck.
