Predictions on the name selection have already begun with choices swinging between “some hipster/old timey name” or something omgFrawnchy sounding.

Yep, post a picture of herself smiling and twirling in front of the Arc de Triomphe. Look, I understand that bloggers and social media stars cannot privately acknowledge any tragedy because private prayers don’t come with hashtags. But maybe chill on the ‘gee my heart is breaking for you, but here’s a pic of me having a grand ole time in front of one of your landmarks in better times!’ posts, guys.

A Friday News Dump

I’m kind of busy lately so here’s some little news bits I never got around to posting the past couple of weeks.

Amber Venz, RStyle queen, finally gave birth to her daughter. She and husband Baxter Box chose the name Birdie. Birdie Box. She’s enjoying her postpartum leave by taking little Birdie Box for walks in outfits like this. Ok then. And if you’re into nursery decor you’ll be thrilled to know she went with the GOMI Forums favorite color scheme of grey and white (combined with what looks like some sort of mintish color on the walls).

Young House Love is selling artwork on Society6 now in case you want some of their amazing paint skills in your life.

Snappy Casual decided it was too hard to pick up her house and also entertain a child and evidently wants internet headpats for this decision.

What I Wore is busy cementing her place as queen bee of her husband’s booze factory by putting on various events.

Socality Barbie announced her retirement and the internet crapped its pants.

And finally, a bunch of supposed internet celebs are going on Season 28 of ‘The Amazing Race’ and pretty much nobody cares.

Feel free to add any other newsie bits that I missed!

Passenger Jumps Overboard During Travel Blogger Cruise

Travel bloggers recently boarded the cruise ship Oasis of the Seas for the TBEX at Sea event. The cruise left Ft. Lauderdale on October 31st and has been making its way through the Bahamas, but tragedy apparently struck this morning.


Evidently a man jumped from Deck 7 and attempted to cling to a lifeboat but was unable to hold on.

Officials said crew members witnessed the 35-year-old intentionally leap from the Oasis of the Seas ship early Friday morning in the Bahamas. A rescue ship from Clearwater has joined search efforts.

Lou Mongello, a passenger on the TBEX cruise, claims there is “a very disturbing video of the passenger hanging onto the lifeboat, where you can hear another passenger saying “You murdered him!… Because of you this happened!”" being passed around the group. A video of the event was recently removed from youtube.

Rumors state the incident involved alcohol and some sort of domestic argument. The Captain was apparently given notice that there was a “domestic situation” happening which allowed the Captain to slow the ship before the incident. Royal Caribbean has now passed on search and rescue duties to the Coast Guard and the ship is heading back to Florida.

UPDATE: Video of the incident is now available here. Warning: Graphic.

UPDATE: Link removed from post because I’d like my phone and inbox to stop blowing up.

Blogger Costumes Will Leave You Whelmed

It was Halloween this past Saturday, and your favorite bloggers really put in 50% this year. In case you missed it here are a few of the costumes put up by people who are supposedly super creative.


Kelle of ETST went as Frieda Kahlo, prompting her fanpuppies to slobber about her super on fleek eyebrows.


Miss James of Bleubird went as Carrie White. Eh. The costume was well done, I guess I’m just tired of seeing at least 3 Carrie costumes every year.


Amber of Barefoot Blonde didn’t wear a formal gown for once. Evidently she was having contractions all day and didn’t feel like doing a costume, though that didn’t stop her from coordinating her outfit with her baby and dog.


Ole Messica is still chugging along at What I Wore, and despite promising that this year’s costume would make her famous Marie Antoinette “look like child’s play”, she simply threw on her old wedding dress and slapped on some black lipstick.


Natalie, still in Idaho, went as Wednesday Addams. There’s just…not much to say about that.


Million dollar blogger Rach Parcell of Pink Peonies got over a thousand comments for her #lifegoals family costume.


And finally, Jenna of That Wife. In case you didn’t know she is a super ladycoder woman in tech now, so obviously she went for a “pun” costume based on her Silicon Valley relevance. Of course that wasn’t enough for Jenna The Kardashian Of Tech – she later changed into a Marilyn Monroe getup for her night of “drinking and dancing”.

Other bloggers decided instead to celebrate Dia de los Muertos – sponsored by Veuve Cliquot, that is. Which is not at all offensive.

Hope you hams had a fun and safe Halloween weekend!
