So in case you didn’t see, I did a post about Mitt Romney last week. I was absolutely disgusted by all of the horrible, vile, mean comments that were left (which is why the post is now deleted). Majority of the comments had nothing to do with politics and everything to do with me, personally. Funny how you can simply state who you are voting for (and clearly state that you have respect for both parties and anyone who votes for either party) and in return you can be told, “you have big hips.” “you are a disgrace to women.” “you are so uneducated.” “you’re not even pretty.”.. the list goes on. It is so sad and disturbing that there are so many rude people out there who hide behind their computer screen and think they can say whatever they want, whenever they want.
Although I must say I was also very impressed by all the people who quickly came to my defense. So anyone who was respectful or defended me, thank you & love you 🙂
That day I seriously asked myself a million times why I am even doing this? I know for a fact its not worth all the free clothes and things I get because I was willing to send every single thing back that day and I didn’t care one bit if I never made another penny from this blog, it just wouldn’t be worth it to me. But what does make it worth it is all of the sweet emails I get. (ps I am so sorry I don’t always have time to answer them all but I DO read them and love them) I got so many amazing, inspiring emails from people who were trying to cheer me up after they saw all the rude comments being made and it seriously changed everything I was feeling. I love that there are so many amazing people out there. Those are the people who will make a difference in this world while all the others are trying to put them down because they are too lazy or insecure or whatever it is to chase their own dreams.

  1. Many apricots are also cultivated in Australia, particularly South Australia, where they are commonly grown in the region known as the Riverland and in a small town called Mypolonga in the Lower Murray region of the state. In states other than South Australia, apricots are still grown, particularly in Tasmania and western Victoria and southwest New South Wales, but they are less common than in South Australia…

  6. LOVE remember our chat at Mcdonalds about all the wienies online?!! Screw them…they are unhappy souls. Love you and miss you!
    So bummed I didn’t even see the Mitt post after all we did for it!

  7. Haters suck! I’m from Canada so I can’t comment on your political debate but I agree with what you said. People should respect each other as well as the views they have on any issue. You are a sweetheart, keep doing what your doing cause the rest of us LOVE YOU! xo

  8. David did a great job on your ring..so gorgeous! And I thought your post about Mitt was great! Keep doin what your doin girl!

  9. You are basically the cutest thing ever! I really enjoyed the blog about Mitt and I felt that you girls did a fabulous job making him “cool”. I really enjoy your blog in general, I feel like you have so many neat tip & tricks, beautiful photos and I adore your style.

    Unfortunately, people will hide behind their computer monitors and say cowardly things on the internet that they would never, ever say in person. It’s a shame that people can be so hateful when you took the time to have such a respectful and polite approach to the topic.

    p.s. congrats on your engagement you two are adorable xoxo

  11. I’m sorry people had to be so rude!! They’re crazy! 🙂 Everyone is entitled to an opinion but there is no excuse for being rude or attacking someone!! I love looking at your blog! Its one of my favs 🙂

  12. You are so amazing and so many people you don’t even know look up to you! (like me haha)
    I am excited to see all your wedding planning and ideas!! Looking at your blog is a breath of fresh hair. Something I always look forward to!

  13. I may not be a Romney supporter, but that doesn’t make me want to write horrible mean things about you (which has nothing to do with a political choice btw). No one deserves that, ever. Like you said they are either just jealous or mean-spirited people.

    Oh, and I LOVE that you posted how you are trying to get better at Call of Duty. I wish I were good at ANY video game. My boyfriend won’t even let me play I am so bad. 🙂

    Hope you have a wonderful week!

  14. When you start getting hate mail it means you made it! Take it as a compliment and try not to let their ugly words effect you. Part of running a blog is having an authentic voice and you used your’s by talking about your political beliefs. Whether people agree with them or not they should not belittle you. I am pretty sure everyone agrees you are one of the most naturally beautiful women around so let the haters hate. Keep on keeping on!

  16. Dear Lord if they thought your hips were big and you weren’t pretty then I must be Chewbacca! Is there a cure for ignorance? 🙂

  17. oooh I can’t even tell you how irritated that makes me. It makes me want to throw up actually. What on earth does Mitt Romney have to do with your (very tiny and perfectly proportioned) hips?? You have big hips? That’s their argument? …and you’re the uneducated one? You are perfect. I feel really sorry for those “anons” because they obviously don’t know the true joy that comes with spreading happiness like you do! So proud of you for being woman enough to voice your opinion and stick by what you believe. Haters gon hate:) Loves!

  18. I am so sorry about all the rude comments. To be honest, there are just mean people in the world that simply have no respect for anyone. And when it comes down to it, the majority of them are probably jealous anyways. I actually feel bad for them ya know? How sad is it that they feel so horribly about themselves that they take it out on a beautiful sweet girl. I hope your week got a little better love!! <3

    xoxo,

  19. Take it as a compliment… as crazy as that sounds! I’ve found people who make mean comments are usually jealous and insecure. So that means you must have something they don’t. And as beautiful as you are it’s probably that you have a mind and an opinion and aren’t afraid to articulate your thoughts and opinions, even on politics.

  20. Ugh, that’s terrible! I cannot believe that people can be so rude and horrible.
    Even if they don’t agree with you personally or politically, there is no reason for people to be so rude to another human being. Especially after you said that you were open to other peoples’ opinions/political beliefs.
    I’m the same as Sophie, I may not have the same political beliefs as you, but that doesn’t make you a horrible person or make me not like you.
    People really need to think before they talk/type.
    I’m really sorry that you had to go through that. I hope that boy of yours gives you a big hug. 🙂
    Speaking of: your ring is DIVINE! I can’t believe he picked it out by himself! Good job!

  21. So sad to hear about all the ugly things people said to you. It disgusts me how cruel people are to each other, especially people they don’t even know. Love your blog, keep up the posts! I’m sure there are numerous fans out there who support you know matter who you vote for

  22. I just started following your blog recently, and I love your style. Also, politics brings out the worst in people. Just remember that. But, I for one am glad you’re voting for Mitt! Thanks for shouting it from the rooftops! 🙂 n

  23. I wonder if any of those rude commenters have mothers, my mom sure as hell didn’t raise me to act like that! If you don’t like what you read on someone’s blog then quit reading it, simple as that. There’s no need to cut someone down for having a different opinion. All those people made themselves appear very small and petty and I’m sorry that happened to you! I hope you keep up blogging, I like your blog 🙂

  24. I am so sorry about all of those mean comments! I have been following your blog for about 1 month now, and I love your updates, and love the courage you had to say you were voting for Mitt. Thanks for letting me read!

  25. Ugh, so sorry to hear about all of the negative comments! You did not deserve that. It’s really unfortunate that topics like politics can bring out the real ugly in people. We should always treat others with respect, doesn’t matter if their beliefs are different than ours! I am not a Romney fan but just because you are doesn’t make me feel any differently about you! Still love your blog and think that you are quite wonderful. 🙂
