nope, you're not the only one! some of the posts over the last few months have been so eye roll inducing that i'm scared my eyes are going to roll right out of my skull. it feels like she is taking too many cues from emphasis added and cupcakes and cashmere.

Oh, she completely rips off Emily/Emphasis Added — right down to "mad love."

She is absolutely infuriating, and the best part is that she is an absolute hot mess in person.

how so? i think she really lost me after her most recent health issue (if you read uauc, you'll know what i'm talking about / if not, scroll a few pages back). as someone who has gone through a very similar experience myself..one post, fine…two, ok..three,four,five,six. like c'mon girl. when someone left a "you shop too much" comment she brought it up as a defense, when someone asked her where she got a necklace (short answer: i dont know)..long answer: health issue story etc you get the picture. i dunno, just kind of turned me off. maybe it's me.

I've only met her briefly, but she looks VERY different without an Instagram filter, and she just comes off as slightly unhinged — like she needs a lot of sleep and a good meal.

I agree re: her health issue.  (And I'm sorry you've been through something similar.) I know many, many people who have been through something similar and to be frank, it feels like she is milking it at this point.

meowmeow123 – i hear what you're saying about the health issue thing. i feel terrible for anyone who goes through something like that, but bringing it up as a defense for shopping is  gross. imo, the open letters regarding the health issue are a little weird. if she's still having a tough time dealing with that, i really hope she considers seeing a therapist. 

what really turned me off was a post after the health issue where she talked about how the out of pocket hospital bill would have been $10,000 had it not been covered by her insurance. still, she made a point to mention that if she did have to pay that out of pocket, it wouldn't have been a devastating hit to her finances. it just reeked of bragginess.

agree completely – i am split between "are you milking this?" or "please go get some help." 

and yes i remember that post – no real need to say 10k wouldn't hurt you. come to think of it, she does the same thing whenever she posts about anything money related (ie. i think there was some post about another house awhile back and she made sure to say something along the lines of – well it still wouldn't hurt my shopping budget!)

the important things in life, obviously

totally agree. there was another post earlier this week where she eluded to these issues and how she deserves a treat and she linked to a $300 sweater and a $500 purse. okay. i don't know if she actually bought those things or wanted it to look like she did, but implying that you need expensive things to cope is just tasteless.

While I don't doubt that EPH buys herself a $300 sweater as a pick-me-up, she recently started using rewardStyle referral links, which explains the sudden and nonstop linking to every item of clothing ever created. She has to pay for that clothing budget somehow, y'all!

 

Also, today's post killed me. If you're going to use "google" as your source for images, please don't bother.

she's been using the referral links for awhile, although i don't think she's ever disclosed that. her OOTD posts suddenly went from shirt – jcrew, pants – jcrew to shirt – jcrew (click here for similiar), pants – jcrew (not available but click here for simliar). stop shilling all the things. annoying. also her thanksgiving outfit set looks like it was made in microsoft paint. just stoppppshutup

ah, i totally overlooked that she was using referral links. 

i loved today's one king's lane post where she told herself to exercise self control and not purchase a $2500+ chanel purse. really? no idea what she and her husband have for a household income, but i have a hard time believing spending that kind of money on a whim for a purse was ever an option. i'm so tired of these posts where she makes light of spending too much money on clothes. it is so not cute. i would be so pissed if i was her husband.

She's also bragged on Twitter about how "worth it" rewardStyle is, and I'm glad to know I'm not the only one bothered by her incessant linking. I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't understand all the Tumblr love for her, to be honest — I'd been feeling like I was missing something.

same here. i was really happy to see someone start a topic for her blog. so many of my followers/people i follow gush about her and i really don't get it! i blame the circle jerk nature of tumblr.
