Now I get it!  Thx @Kohola3.  That fits.

Spellcheck is a pain when trying to type Christine's kids' names.

Yup, Mariah has a WAY too high opinion of herself.  She's neither cute, nor clever.  Artsy-fartsy, and not in a good way.

lularoemeribrown @mariahbrwn our friend the yoga instructor told me again the other day he still thinks you should teach, you have that yoga energy about you! :)

 

I despise the "artistic" trend of photographs of feet. I've seen this all over for the last 5-10 years and I don't want to see bare feet! Why ruin a beautiful picture of the ocean by blocking it with feet?! Your face, fine, but decades from now your offspring's offspring will not be viewing family photos and say, "Oh, look! It's great grandma!! I'd know those feet anywhere!"  Sorry, this is a big pet peeve of mine #itstroublinghowirritatedigetaboutfeetphotography

See, I can hashtag too!

 

Regarding the upthread discussion on hair colour: I colour (read: cover the ever spreading silver) a dark brown, which is very close to my natural colour. I'm also so pale that I joke about being a vampire. It was only in the last five years or so when makeup brands have been expanding their colour ranges that I have actually found foundations in a few brands that match my skin. I've always had to buy the lightest colour and those weren't light enough until some higher end brands started carrying shades of "snow" and "porcelain". So, I have really dark hair, porcelain snow vampire skin, and green eyes. I wear black nearly exclusively, not as a fashion statement per say but I just started about ten years ago after my pancreatic cancer and my dad dying (RIP, beloved Daddy--he died ten years ago on the 18th, which also happens to be my oldest daughter's birthday; November is a mixed bag for me). It's not to be morbid or anything and it wasn't a conscious decision; I like remembering Johnny Cash wore all black, too. Yeah, I'm a weirdo. 

Has anyone seen the British comedy "Are You Being Served?"? You have to appreciate British humour to enjoy it, but the character Mrs Slocum always has brightly coloured hair--purple, pink, blue, green, yellow--any colour you can imagine. The actress dyed her hair for the part for the first season, but it fried her hair so badly it just broke apart. After the first season, she wore wigs but I always laugh when she walks in with a new colour.

Why does she think this mundane detail is worthy of a post?  Next we'll be hearing about her buying toilet paper at her local market.

Mariah has led us to believe that she was most grateful to have Audge in her life.  Make up your mind Mariah, is coffee or Audge your "fave thing".

Sweet Jesus. That's it. Coffee? Not her family, her health, her opportunities, her education? That girl really needs to re-evaluate her priorities.

Did you know that there's a photo of Mariah in the dictionary? Look up "pretentious."

I think that Mariah is trying to impress whomever with the fact that she made her coffee using a French Press. I cannot not believe how sophisticated she has become....😏

Next post we can expect to see photos of the Organic Fair Trade Coffee beans she has specifically roasted and ground to her cultivated palate.  Purchased at her fave Chi-town Bean Boutique.

She comes off like a prototypical hillbilly rube who was determined to reinvent herself in the big city. Which was admirable until she drove past substance, ended up at desperation, put it in Park, looked around and said "Here is where I will live my why." Hey grrl, we see what you did ...

Dear Mariah:

"An ounce of pretentious is worth a pound of manure." (credit to whomever said it in Steel Magnolias, with a slight modification.)  Seriously, I'm not impressed one iota.

Yes, yes - the French press is important, but behold the artful placement of the glasses and the carefully arranged, yet not intrusive, location of the iPad!  This is artistry at its best!  Do you think those glasses got there by themselves?  It probably took Mariah ages to craft this scenario to demonstrate how important we must think she is...how smart...how cultured!  And let us not forget - the pour...have you ever tried to take a picture with one hand whilst pouring a hot beverage with the other?  This is not easy, you peasants.  Many kudos to Mariah.  This photo allows me to see deep into her soul.  She is smart.  She is passionate.  She is deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep.

I'm surprised she didn't look up the French words for this artful post, and amaze her hordes of fans/worshippers with her mastery of another language.

Better up your pretentiousness, Mariah.  You're slipping.

LOL.  Inane and pretentious though she is, perhaps she could teach Janelle some of the finer points of photography.  Janelle's pictures SUCK.  Use your powers for good, Mariah!

Dolly/Truvy in that movie, offering to buy a pair of shoes from Olympia/Clairee: "What size you wear?" Well, in a good shoe I wear a size 6 but a 7 feels so good I buy a size 8." "They're 8 and a half." "Perfect."

I wear a 9 and a couple times at a picnic when someone asked me what size I said "6." I LOL after they pretended not to goggle at my feet, because one of us damn sure needed an eye exam, while trying to hide their goggling. Good times.

It's one of my all-time favorite movies.  I was cursed with big feet, and the smallest size I could say I wear would be a 9, which would be a lie :)

But, here's a big plus:  my 60-something feet look great in sandals compared to foot-picture-in-Birks Mariah.  I don't remember who said it here, but an astute poster likened Mariah's feet to Fred Flintstone, which was a spot-on description.

So two of the fattest people in the Brown family are now fitness bloggers?  Uh, okay.

We know Janelle fills her blog space pontificating about how difficult her life is, but I'm guessing Mariah will fill hers with how wonderful she is and how great her life is.  Maybe if the two blogs were merged, the result might be something people could read without wanting to scream and rip out their hair by the roots.

Hi friends! I’ve started a blog + have added a few new posts to it! I just posted about podcasts (my one true love) 

I thought coffee was her one true love, maybe followed by Audrey.  Is she third now?

I wasted about 2 minutes trying to figure out what the hell I was supposed to be seeing in that photo. I didn't feel especially relieved or rewarded when I figured out it was a big belly/armpit/up the nostrils shot.

Don't give her any more ideas!  The next thing you know she'll be pushing her horticulture blog.  Any experience she has participated in more than once, she is an instant expert.

I am just trying to imagine the conversation that went on between Mariah and Audge when it came to staging this particularly stupid "artful" photo.  How did Mariah decide which yoga pose to strike?  Why did she choose one that showed not only her armpit, but her belly (which, in that unfocused light, looked less than toned - and this is coming from someone whose belly is also less than toned, which is precisely why I would not make it the focal point of a photo for public consumption, just saying).  How did the plant come into play?  Whose idea was it to take the photo from amongst the leaves?  Why not unfocus the plant and focus on our fave hip bloggeress?  How many photos did poor Audge have to take before Mariah deemed this one (weirdly) acceptable?  Don't they both have homework they should be working on?

As a staunch member of the Get Off My Lawn Club, these are the vapid, useless questions that burn up my valuable brain neurons whenever I see the youngsters posting photos like this one.  Clearly it's posed, staged, and filtered to within a fraction of what it really looks like.  To take that much time crafting something stupid like this for social media is something I just don't get.  At all.

You are far from alone, fellow GOML clubber.  Dear Audge needs a Photography 101 class yesterday.

I'm mystified by posts such as this.  One reason I'm rarely on social media.  Vapid and then some.
