Happy Friday, hambaskets! It’s Book Club day, my favorite time of the whole week. This time I’m drinking my way through ‘What I Wore: Four Seasons, One Closet, Endless Recipes For Personal Style’ by Jessica Quirk. So put on your scarves, strap on your nude Coach sandals, and settle in for the most basic of basic style books around.
On to the TL;DR…
The Feminist Breeder, always right, is apparently done looking for a real job because it’s just too stressful.
I’ve decided that looking for a job is no longer good for my mental health at the moment. I get too angry and frustrated when I see how few jobs there are in my field with far too many applicants. It takes too much time to send out cover letters and resumes only to find out they had 100 overqualified applicants and already filled the job internally…
Instead, Gina has decided to…not get a job. After spending about $150,000 for a degree, she is saying screw it and writing a book…or something.
So I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing and maybe work on that book or that birth business idea. Because this is just getting too stressful and depressing.
Um, ok. So she’s basically going to be a SAHM with a blog, being supported by her husband while she ‘maybe’ writes a book? How punk rock feminist of her. When asked what exactly her dream job IS, she replied “I honestly don’t know.” Her dream job appears to be not having a job, so, way to go, girl.
Following EIC Eva Chen’s announcement that she will be leaving Lucky, attendees of the Lucky FABB conference received notice that the event would be postponed.
In light of today’s announcement regarding Eva Chen’s future transition from the Lucky Group to spend time with her new family, we are prioritizing what is best fo the brand and have made the decision to postpone the upcoming Lucky FABB conference.
The news came just a week before the May 9th event. While event coordinators assured attendees they “will be receiving reimbursement for your ticket fee” many bloggers are angry at the short notice since some already spent money on airfare and accomodations.
Not to tell anyone how to do their job or anything, but couldn’t they have gone forward with the conference and then announced at the event that Eva Chen was leaving? Seems like a missed opportunity for a big news push. Anyway, it seems bloggers and brands burned by the short notice are planning their own meetups, so those new outfits and instagram opportunities won’t go to waste after all.
Not one to be outdone by that upstart Kate Middeton, Rachel Parcell of Pink Peonies has begun the process of producing a hashtagged ladybaby from her body.
Let the name guessing begin!
Happy May Day, hams! It’s time for another Book Club liveblogged book review! I decided to go with Cuppy’s book.
