Belle Gibson Lied About Having Cancer

1429685494377

Belle Gibson, cancer liar, has admitted to Australian Women’s Weekly that she lied about having cancer.

The interview is titled “My Life-long struggle with the truth” and comes complete with a softly filterered photo of Belle doing her best sexy apology face. When asked if she ever had cancer, she replied “No … None of it’s true.”

Belle then went on to complain about how mean everyone is being to her just because she lied about having cancer.

In the last two years I have worked every single day living and raising up an online community of people who supported each other … I understand the confusion and the suspicion, but I also know that people need to draw a line in the sand where they still treat someone with some level of respect or humility — and I have not been receiving that.

Belle is blaming it all on a troubled childhood, saying “I didn’t have any toys.”

Cupcakes And Cashmere Has A Lifehack That Will Change Your Phonecalls Forever

Cupcakes and Cashmere, provider of elevated lifehacks, has shared her secret for those times “when someone’s service dies or they accidentally hang up and you spend the next ten minutes frantically dialing each other at the same time and can’t get through”. She and her best friend have a system that will forever alter the way you deal with dropped calls.

…simple things like phone conversations carry more weight, which led us to develop a bit of a strategy for those annoying times when calls drop…Our solution is simple: whomever initially dialed the other person is in charge of calling back. That’s it!

You guys. YOU GUYS. I don’t about you but I literally never thought of having a system for those times someone goes “sccrrr static sound driving into a tunnel *click*”. Usually I just text and say “call back if you want” or one of us, ya know, picks up call waiting if we are trying to dial them while they dial us. Now I can inform the other party of my phone pre-nup before the conversation even starts! In a world full of questions and confusion I say brava to Emily for continuing to post amazing content that the internet sorely needs.

Cary Randolph Will Finally Get Married

Cary Randolph, husband hunter, seems to have finally nailed down a man. Just six months after moving back to Missouri her boyfriend apparently finally stepped up and proposed – and she’s already starting a wedding diet.

Her man finally popped the question 3 weeks ago, but without further confirmation I thought maybe it was a joke. Especially since a mere month ago, following speculation of a breakup, she was spewing rapture about life in St. Louis.

STL is pretty amazing. I love it here. My apartment sits right across the street from Forest Park, and on weekend mornings, I go for a jog and then pop around the corner for coffee. Saint Louisans take their coffee so seriously! I see my family at least once a month, thank God, and have a fantastic group of friends to see every other day and night. And when you factor price and convenience into your lifestyle plan, there’s so much more to do here than in New York.

With her fiance based in NYC I assume she will be moving back for what will be the fourth or fifth time now. But hey, congrats! All that hard work finally paid off!

‘Oh Joy!’ – A Liveblogged Book Review

TGIF Hams! It’s time for another liveblogged book. This time we are reading ‘Oh Joy! 60 Ways To Create & Give Joy’ by Joy Cho. I’ll be honest – I’ve been trying to read this thing for a week. I’ll get one or two pages along and just think ‘wut? who is this written for?’ but in my defense I’m neither crafty nor particularly into Pinterest type crap. So let’s get started! As always, I will update as I go…
