CecilyK Moving For Some Reason

In case you missed it Cecily Kellogg, financial adviser, has “begun to plan, seriously, for moving sometime this summer”.

We know where we want to move – an area of Philly called West Philly/University City – because it’s halfway between my mom’s place and Tori’s school. It will save us tons of commuting time and will also allow us much better access to public transportation if we choose.

Not understanding the fixation on access to public transportation since they supposedly have a van, but ok. She then goes on to set up a back story for this totally voluntary move.

While we’ve been discussing moving for a long time, it finally felt like reality to Tori and she had some tough feelings about it. Luckily, I took her to Ikea to buy her a desk for her room and we talked about what we could do in a new room for her and she got excited about moving. Though she will miss having a nice front yard.

Since Cecily claims she is saving for family vacations and attending weddings on the other side of the country and thus unable to attend any blogger conferences…how exactly are they going to afford to move? They can’t even keep their current home in proper repair as it is. I can’t imagine what they will wind up doing to a rental if they manage to get $10k together to move in the first place.

Blogger finances just baffle the crap out of me.

Mr. “Love Taza” Apparently Now A “Founder”

um what

Josh Davis, aka Mr. Taza, appears to be reinventing himself. Like every other 20-something who watched David Karp happen, Mr. Taza seems to have dreams of becoming some kind of tech company “founder“. Thus, “Pippit” exists.

From what can be surmised, Pippit is some kind of iPhone app that may or may not basically be Instagram with a reblog feature or some kind of pinterest type app. “Oh Joy” is speculated to be involved somehow, and the Pippit twitter follow list seems to indicate something similar.

Just what New York needs – yet another guy trying to be a tech startup wannabe. Love Taza must be minting money if he can quit his job to play “founder”.

The Bielankos Break Up

In news that will shock absolutely no one, click bait expert Monica Bielanko and her husband are separating.

For so long I’ve allowed myself to be this dysfunctional individual who struggles within a dysfunctional marriage, even going so far as to convince myself that couples who fight are normal, that Serge and I are charmingly dysfunctional…

Part of me doubts that Monica just came to her senses and turned into a rational adult all of a sudden, but she claims that’s pretty much what happened.

Several months ago, after another argument about who the hell knows what, it all just kind of bubbled up inside me…Our marriage sucks. And it has for a while now. I’ve been unhappy for a long time but have become so used to living this way I assumed this was it in life.

So it seems little Band-Aid Bielanko didn’t fix things after all. Does this mean they will finally close up their joint Babble column?

What I Wore Finally Announces Pregnancy


Jessica Quirk, running out of content, has finally publicly confirmed – she’s pregnant.

We’re expecting our first baby this summer! We could not be more thrilled with our happy news…On a hunch and a day late, I decided to run to the store to grab a pregnancy test on Christmas Eve – and that’s when we found out! What a happy holiday!!

I guess now that she can’t hide under big coats anymore she sort of HAD to announce it if she intends to continue doing What I Wore as a style blog. Saying “I’ll also be sharing some baby and pregnancy related posts from time to time” she explained that she was too tired for her first trimester to post outfit posts.

So at last Messica is pregnant and I think it’s highly likely that she will transition into lifestyle/mommy blogging. I’m sure the internet is eagerly awaiting What I Wore While Pregnant, and What My Baby Wore.
