Sara Jenks Will Bravely Start The Conversation

Sara Jenks, expert at life, says “very few people talk about the truth of the struggle of motherhood”, and since no one is sharing how hard life is, it’s “[c]ue high rates of postpartum depression, isolation, eating disorders and divorce”. But Sara and her superbeef are brave and real.

Just a few days ago I texted her, “What do you do when your nanny cancels, you have 3 blog posts to write and the baby won’t stop crying?” …During almost every conversation about how hard it is to be a mom and the ridiculous things that happened to us the past week, one of us screams, “WHY ISN’T ANYONE TALKING ABOUT THIS!?”

Thankfully Sara will gladly help start the conversation by pointing you to her bff’s podcast about how hard parenting is, because there are no other podcasts about how much parenting can suck and no one on the internets talking about how parenting can suck. There aren’t any movies about how hard it is to be a mom, no playgroups where moms complain to each other about The Endless Journey To The Volcano Of Potty Training. Sara and Amy alone are bringing you this comfort of inclusivity. You’re welcome, moms!

White Savior Barbie Is The Latest Barbie Instagram

If you miss the adventures of that hipster Barbie instagram, maybe you’ll enjoy Barbie Savior. It’s an account evidently making fun of white girls who go to Africa and take voluntourism selfies.

So go have fun with that if you’re into those barbie lampoon gram feeds!

Pink Peonies Is Pregnant Again Just Like Everyone Has Been Saying For Three Months

Rachel Parcell, the “jewelry designer” and alleged seven figure a year blogger, has announced her fertility issues seem to be over.

This little baby (who already is kicking up a storm) was a BIG surprise!!! It took me a year (and one round of clomid) to get pregnant with Isla Rose so I never would’ve imagined I would get pregnant with my next baby so quickly!

Saying she “only had one period between Isla and this baby” she goes on to share the details of buying and taking a pregnancy test in Italy. No word on whether she has scheduled baby number two’s first jet ski ride.

Brandon Can Blow His Financial Aid Money On A Vacation

Screen Shot 2016-04-14 at 8.35.07 AM

Brandon and his girlfriend Nat, they promise they aren’t rich, are a couple of college kids who both love Nat’s behind and traveling the world. So when Brandon received his financial aid money for school, the choice on how to spend it was obvious – take his girlfriend’s rump on a trip to Thailand.

Hi my name is Brandon and my school just gave me $2,500 in financial aid to spend on textbooks and supplies. And my girlfriend has never left the country before, and I know the one place she’s always wanted to go. And I decided to do something a little different with my financial aid. So this is our itinerary to Thailand, and she doesn’t know it yet, but I’m about to go surprise her. Let’s do it!

They have an instagram account where they document the adventures of Nat’s booty in various locations, and a Facebook page where Brandon explained why it’s ok to use your financial aid money on being “a boss”.

I’ve realized that many people are mislead by the amount of money spent for our trip. The $2500 merely covered our tickets. We spent around $1000 each for a month where we stayed in hostels so we could afford to do the bigger things…I am a film major. I got $2500 after my tuition was paid for. As a film student you luckily don’t need many textbooks. How did I get $2500 in financial aid? I was emancipated when I was 16.

Hopefully his reasoning will calm all the haters who seem angry that some entitled white boy is spending money earmarked for the educational needs of the financially disadvantaged on a tropical vacation for his girlfriend’s tuchas.

That Wife Wants To Live Absolutely

Jenna Cole, ladycoder and expert at selfing, has started yet another internet presence. In a rambling introduction she explains what Living Absolutely is all about.

Living out loud. Jumping in with both feet…Drinking in everything that feeds your Self. Putting your Self first…Experimenting. Trying new things. Trying all the things. Living out your vision board yet being willing to burn the board the next day because you’ve changed your mind and have new dreams to chase after.

So far it seems to mostly be a depository for Jenna’s Toastmaster ‘speeches’. This latest addition to her online existence joins her two new instagram accounts in Jenna’s attempt to carpet bomb the internet with her pink hair.
