somebody's gotta do it.

I strongly suggest you leave this page if you are not interested in hearing me bitch and complain for about 3 minutes or however long it will take you to read this post.

You've been warned.

Pumpkin Spice Lattes - #PSL
Honestly, when the HELL did these disgusting drinks become so popular? Last fall I saw them creeping their way into the candle business and blogger business, but this year, EVERYWHERE is Pumpkin Spice this or that (candles, airfresheners, hand soaps, muffins, donuts, car scents). And at least 7 times per day, am I seeing someone take a picture of their starbucks #PSL with a shot of the "arm candy party" or whatever the heck those fashionistas are calling it, a pair of shoes and a shot of their pants on INSTAGRAM.  With 800 hashtags, you know how I feel about those hashtags.  Seriously though, after blogging last fall, I decided to give the Pumpkin spice a fair shot, I couldn't even get past the first sip.  I will take the hot apple cider, please and thank you.

eBay and their inflating iPhone prices.
Really though, who in Sam's hell gets the idea they can sell a TOTALLY SMASHED CRACKED SCREEN iphone 4 --> FOUR (not even 4S) people, for over TWO HUNDRED DOLLARS?? WHAT? Stop now. Just no.  I decided that I've had it with my Galaxy S4, and I've been searching on eBay for a used iPhone 5...the prices are beyond RIDICULOUS.  Like, I'm talking over $500 dollars, in an auction price. You don't even want to know what the "Buy it Now" price is.   Who the hell do these people think they are selling those phones at those whacked out prices? And even more so, who the hell would spend that much money on a USED phone?  P.S. I kept coming across the title *BAD ESN*... I googled this and found that these scam artists are selling their phones for an obscene amount of money, they are within their return period, and then reporting to the phone companies that their phones were stolen!  Which basically means, they are making about $300 bucks off the phone (given that they paid $200 for the new contract), and then getting a brand new phone for FREE. Jerks.

Bloggers and their Phillip Lim for Target purses.
This one really pisses me off.
First of all, I'd like to give a big thank you to all the bloggers who have successfully bought out all of the Phillip Lim purses, by the approximate hour of 8am on Sunday, September 15th in EVERY Target across America as well as their online website.  Really, I congratulate you for your Black Friday-esque plans of attack on these bags.  Is it me, or do you feel every blogger (but me and maybe you) have these purses?? People, really though, what was the big deal with these bags? They aren't even real leather, and its a PURSE FOR CRYING OUT LOUD.   GET OVER IT!  In fact, I'm so riled up about the hype and aftermath of these purses that I hope your damn strap breaks and you have to return it to the store and then you'll be shit out of luck because they are all gone. (And I can promise you--this is not jealousy, AT ALL..before you even start thinking that).
And a note to those of you who purchased 800 of them in one shopping spree, and are now selling them on eBay (curiosity got the best of me), at RIDICULOUS PRICES, WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE?!?!?  Shit like that should be illegal, I'm sorry.  And for those of you people who actually buy ANYONE's TARGET BAG on Ebay or instagram, or wherever the hell else these people are selling them, for anything more than $10 dollars more than the original price... you are dumb. 

The End.

Now that I've gotten that crap off my chest, I can blog about how fabulous my weekend was.

Or not.

I'm choosing not to, because quite frankly, it sucked.  And the Giants lost. REAL BAD. I was actually ashamed to be wearing a shirt with their name on it in the store after the game.

However, I am excited for Sleepy Hollow though tonight.  Did anyone watch or DVR it? It was very interesting and creepy!  

Have a great day ladies.


  1. amen. i feel you on all of these. and uh...the vikings lost real bad too.

  2. LOVED Sleepy Hollow last week!! Thanks for reminding me because I almost forgot about it tonight, ha!

  3. Long lost soul sister. LOL just another time where I couldn't agree with you more. Except that I stuck with my iPhone when you made the evil switch! :) But....PSL is the devil. I cannot fathom why people love these so much (N included). Have you came across any of the E-Cards making fun of them? If not, you need to go Google them, or ask me later and I'll show you. Nothing pumpkin flavored will ever enter my apartment or house.
    Also, you ruined my Christmas present for you. I totally got you that one awesome Phillip Lim sweater. I guess I will make someone's day when I return it. Then they can sell it on EBay for a small fortune. :)

  4. I love this! I'm getting tired of all those things too! And I'm LOVING Sleepy Hollow. I can't wait to watch it tonight!

  5. Hahaha, this may be the rantiest post I've ever read! I do agree with you on everything but the #PSL, though ;) Although, I've been obsessed with them and everything Pumpkin for years now. I actually hate that it's gotten so trendy because it overshadows my genuine love. Haha.

  6. That game was painful to watch. I don't get the whole designers for stores fad in general, but especially this one. I didn't even know who he was until he teamed with Target, and was happier that way. I am excited to watch Sleepy Hollow though- it is currently in my DVR and I hope it lives up to the hype!

    (PS... I do love those SB drinks... but I loved them before Instagram even existed. And I haven't gotten on yet this year. So that makes it better right?!)

  7. Ok I loved all this.

    Now, let me say, I do love me some pumpkin. But not in my latte, and the pumpkin spice shit everywhere has gotten out out of control.

    And I'm embarrassed to say but I don't even know who the heck Phillip Lim is but those purses are not cute. Sorry people.

  8. lol lol lol lol this is why i love you.
    this is the true fire of us north easterners hahahaha. LOVE THIS POST!

  9. I am so glad I was not on purse band wagon!
