I admit I used to be obsessed. Now, all the blog has become is "buy these $35 pajamas for your toddler which will last 4.5 seconds or OMG time to decorate for fall or let's add corn dogs to our bloody mary's" 

 

and now she is actually having sponsored posts pageviews which if it is anything like La Fitnesseeesta, will be the demise of all things worth reading. trainwreck

 

Anyone else a LBG reader/hater/lover?

Eh, she found her niche. Her house is beautiful and her kid is adorable. Plus I think she is relatable to a lot of people. I can't snark on her because she seems pretty honest with her readers. Saying that she was able to cut back on hours because her etsy shop is doing well and she constantly thanks readers for support.

Jessica isn't super confrontational and seems pretty genuine. I don't get the impression that she is recommending outfits because she's getting product for free. To be honest, it's kind of refreshing to see a blogger dress their kid in Old Navy and Gap clothes.

I can see how she would grate on someone's nerves with her over-the-top love of holidays and fall, but I like her. Harper is adorable and Jessica seems like someone I could hang with IRL.

I mostly like her. I made a comment on her once in the Elena thread, I think comparing the effort they put into the 1st bday parties. Elena's was all about the photo ops where LBG's was all about pure love for that kid. Love and sugar lol.

I admire the amount of work she seems to get done while engaging her daughter. I know she works from home, but the attention to detail and the extras and the constant festivities they seem to have – it's inspiring and irritating lol. She seems to eat like crap and is super thin, though she's not terribly annoying about it. Pretty materialistic, but overall a SOMI.

Who is this Elena? I feel like I should find her and snark. Never heard of her.

LBG has always been one of my favorites. I brushed away the irritation of the realization that I will never be as awesome of a mother as she is. I just don't have that kind of motivation. I'll ombre the fuck out of a bunch a poptarts though so I guess that could count. Am I jealous of her? Of course, have you seen her beautiful, long hair? 

 

I guess I am more annoyed at the readers. Some of them seem so m-f-ing obsessive. Her IG pics are flooded with the "OMG where did you get that tanktop" "OMG where did you get that bottle opener" "OMG where did you buy your toliet paper" "OMG where do you buy your groceries" – I get that it is a huge boost for her blog and these companies that she features but it has become an "OMG if I buy everything LBG buys then I will become LBG" 

 

The best is the clothing auctions she will have on IG with her daughter's clothing…these readers will buy ANYTHING that was once worn by the mom or the kiddo. I'm talking ANYTHING. She once did a tutorial on how to cut out the collar on a Gap sweatshirt and then later sold the sweatshirt on her IG auction. I'm pretty sure the thing sold for MORE than the original retail price. 

So she must be doing something right because she makes a KILLING off Etsy, IG auctions and has over 7.2 million blog views…like a boss. 

 

I guess I'll just keep reading and STFU.

Jessica is not so bad. Her overly excitement for holidays can be extreme (Christmas in July celebration?? Really? She definitely did that one just for the blog.) Her baby will have memories to cherish forever though. And no one can deny the girl has bomb.com chalkboard skills. That's the only thing that is REALLY impressive about her.

Her readers, however, are fucking obsessed & annoying. The girl can post a picture on Instagram of iced coffee and they go crazy.. "I'm so jealous of your iced coffee!" Ma'am….it's coffee and ice in a damn jar. They act like she is the creative, original idea bank of the world and Pinterest and the internet doesn't exist. Get off her balls.

I love her party decor and back yard. I commented one time on her blog that $35 for a 14 month old's tank top was a bit pricey, and she delete the comment. Not being able to admit that turned me off and I stopped reading.

I agree with you. Today's t-shirt is $38 and leggings $25. Seems a bit over the top. And girlfriend needs to chill out about the Fall. By the end of the month she'll be decorating her tree and hanging stockings.

I remember her saying she'll be working part time now because daycare is too expensive, and then she buys 60$ outfit for her kid to wear at home, and orders a 50$ rain boots.

I really liked her in the beginning with all of her pregnancy chalkboards and I admire her on that. She comes out as a creative person with her board designs and her prints and holidays but when I saw her house tour… what a snoozefest. For someone so creative her house lacks color and personality. I know it takes time to settle in and decorate but her house looks like they moved in a week ago and barely managed to unpack the big furniture. 

I'm all for minimalism in design but I would be so sad coming back home to that house. But her obsessed fans want her to decorate their houses. muahahahahaha.
