Lauren Can’t Wait To Honor 9/11

wuuuuuttf

Lauren, of Southern Elle Style which is apparently some kind of wannabe lifestyle blog, posted a moving tribute in honor of the events of 15 years ago. Holding a mug inscribed with the word “Joy” and pigeon toeing while sitting down, Lauren proceeds to tell the world she is

Extremely and utterly exhausted from yesterday, but I can only imagine how many people felt like that and worse, 15 years ago and still today. Can’t wait to see how they honor the fallen and heroes, today at the Cowboys game…

Bloggers: if there is ever a day to not make about yourself, this might be it. Please just…don’t.

imogene + willie Founders Being Accused Of Fraud

imogene + willie, the selvedge denim darlings of the Nashville instagram hipster set, seems to be having some problems with their finances. Investors accuse the Eddmensons of using company money to “support a lavish lifestyle of personal indulgence” rather than “developing a wholesale business”.

In court papers, Celia Hughes, Imogene + Willie’s former chief financial officer, said the company’s accounting books contained many “red flags.”…She cited a $10,000 motorcycle, spa trips and home renovations such as a new bath, doors, furnishings and window treatments as examples of the Eddmensons’ mismanagement of company funds.

Matt Eddmenson’s personal instagram does feature a lot of motorcycles, so who knows. Anyway, apparently the latest financial statements show “61 percent of Imogene + Willie’s roughly $224,000 in bills are 90 days past due” and Robert Lamey and Paige Heid, the largest creditors of the company, are trying to force the company into chapter 11 bankruptcy  ”using an involuntary petition”.

So maybe pretty soon Jordana and Bleubird will have to find a new brand of status jeans run by a new hipster couple they can glom onto and instagram tag.

Mommy Wants Vodka Wants Better Friends

Aunt Becky, medical marvel, evidently didn’t raise enough from her GoFundMe to get another apartment. She’s now on twitter railing against the friends who ghosted on her when she wound up homeless.

Surely she can just arrange another medical problem and get another few months’ stay at a hospital?

Momastery Wants To Protect Her New Friend

Glennon Doyle Melton, bruti-full-of-it, posted this weekend about a new special friend.

And here is the interesting thing about how I feel introducing her to you here, about bringing my new beloved friend to this space. I feel nervous. I feel so protective of her. Because sometimes it feels like we have guidelines for how we respect each other but we throw them right out the window when it comes to celebrities…I want my friend to be safe here with us just like you are safe here with us.

To honor that protective feeling Glennon wrote a long detailed essay about her “new friend”. Her “new friend’s name is Oprah”, and they didn’t just record a segment for Oprah’s television channel. They have been “corresponding a bit” via email. They “make each other laugh” and call each other “God’s Girl”. She has a celebrity friend, and she will be protective of that celebrity friend by telling you about the decor of her celebrity friend’s home and tell you about their family dinner, about how they “prayed together”.

Let us all praise Saint Lap for her discretion and class in protecting her celebrity friend. You see, “Names are so important.” Especially when they’re worthy of being dropped to increase your own brand’s profile.

Skinny Meg Will Snapchat Proper Car Safety

Megan, ‘skinny’, loves to document her every breath via Periscope and snapchat. This includes snapchatting her children dancing around unbuckled in what seems to be a moving vehicle.

She is SkinnyMeg31 on snapchat and as of now the snap is still viewable in her story. In several successive snaps the kids are dancing and singing in a vehicle that seems to be moving through what looks like a suburban neighborhood. Meg also appears to be driving the vehicle.

Seriously, why do bloggers keep doing this?

Jessica Quirk Will Finally Squirk A Ladybaby

I guess the headline says it all, but Jessica Quirk, still managing to keep her What I Wore blog limping along, has announced she is indeed squirked up with a tiny female human.

I’m so excited to share some fun news with you! Our growing family is excited to announce we have a baby girl on the way! We are thrilled! This pregnancy has been so different from my first so I had a hunch we’d be adding a daughter to our crew. I even started a baby quilt for her room a few weeks before I knew for sure!

Misusing the word ‘gender’ just like every other blogger who wants a reason to instagram a pink or blue cake, Messica makes sure we know Squirk 1.0 is thrilled about being dethroned by the long awaited Mini-Messi.

We’ve had a name picked out since before our first was born, so now we just need to narrow down a middle name. Knowing her gender has done a lot for me and pregnancy bonding and it’s so fun to say ‘she’ and to prep Felix for his little sister. Last night in his sleep he reached over to my stomach and said BABY!

Sure. Why not.

Anyway, I’m sure 99% of you don’t give a toss about Messica’s uterine contents but I think we can all agree poor Kins needed to stop being at the top of the page. So just pretend this is ‘news’ and then feel free to comment ‘who?’ and ‘no1curr’ so poor Fat Naked Baby can fade from top post.

This type of thing has been going on for a while with this instagram mom, so I’m not sure what she thought she was doing posting nudes of her daughter. But as she’s said in the past, she will post what she wants.

RIP in Peace Gawker

I never thought I would see the day.

After nearly fourteen years of operation, Gawker.com will be shutting down next week…Nick Denton, the company’s outgoing CEO, informed current staffers of the site’s fate on Thursday afternoon, just hours before a bankruptcy court in Manhattan will decide whether to approve Univision’s bid for Gawker Media’s other assets.

Evidently Gawker.com is dunzo, and the staffers are being dispersed to “other editorial roles, either at one of the other six sites or elsewhere within Univision”.

How Dare Twitter Not Verify Lynette’s Account

Lynette Young, apparently important and famous, is having a nice little “don’t you know who I am” huff on twitter.

Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 1.34.22 PM

Yes twitter, that bon mot graveyard for the 40 somethings who refuse to figure out snapchat, has denied her request for the Verified Badge that everyone on social media drools over. Despite having a whopping 14,000 followers and namedropping Biz Stone, Ms. Literally One Of The First was unable to get that ego validating blue checkmark. Can you believe this? Can nothing be done to right this injustice?

Momastery Wants Your Constant Loving Gaze

Glennon, of Saint Lap fame, has expressed her gratitude and humility after an event with her worshipful lapostles. Oh wait, no she didn’t – she just wants everyone everywhere to have the palpitating fangirl slobbers when they look at her.

Old Joy Possibly Leaving The House That Made Her Popular

Old Joy, one of the top four ‘white walls and babies’ instagram clones (other members include Mama Watters, Amelia, and Burtsbrisplease), announced she and her family are leaving the gram palace that helped shoot her to popularity.

She addressed the move in a series of snapchats yesterday, saying “people are asking where we’re moving, and the truth is we have no idea” before going on to explain that the reason for the move is they “found out while we were on vacation that my husband lost his job”.

Basically we are terrified…we have no idea what the future’s going to hold…

She went on to reveal they are selling her husband’s record collection and added “real life isn’t glamorous, real life is scary…but everything’s gonna be ok”.

The announcement sparked questions over whether the faux prairie mama bubble is bursting, and highlights the shaky reality of a trendy ‘perfect life’ as seen through a gram filter.

Jenna Made A “Mistake”

Jenna Cole, the playground flask mom, put up another vaguewhine instagram about how hard she has it as a “solo parent”. In the comments of her post she began gassing about feminism and being a career woman vs. raising kids, because she seems to think she is the expert voice of our time on anything #upwithwomen. Eventually she dropped this amazing conclusion:

I should have done a whole lot more personal reflection before a made the huge commitment to have kids! A mistake my kids will hear a lot about and hopefully they won’t feel the same

Those #blessed children. They have years of their tub vaping, day drinking mom telling them she made a mistake having them and being told not to make the same choice while she’s smugging around the internet about what a great sobrave solo mom she is. Happy weekend, everyone!

FGAA Has Produced That Children’s Book

Eric Hites and the Angie Gnome have completed their book and are now offering the beautifully bound story for sale on their website.

Screen Shot 2016-08-01 at 3.56.59 PM

They claimed it would be “simple yet be good for a first Grader” and say it was “printed and assembled by Angie and Eric Hites with a spiral binding”. It is “40 pages of content with pages for coloring”, though they don’t seem to have any images up showing the inside of the book.

Kinda makes you miss Book Club, eh?
