    This news channel did a pretty good job if you're interested in the plastic surgery world. The thing they mention that bloggers never will is that there's a lot malpractice in this world, the hospital the mini documentary is centered around (ID hospital) has some lawsuits against them. Plastic surgery hospitals are pretty much a dime a dozen now so you have to be hella careful where you go, especially since Korea doesn't have strict regulations like America does

    Just some food for thought, but she could be on medication causing it too. I gained a lot weight on birth control, when I changed over to a vegan diet and was working out 5 days a week I couldn't lose anything. After I quit birth control it's been melting off, lost 3kg in 2 weeks and been steadily losing 1kg a month. I work out way less but I'm sure my vegan diet is helping a lot too. 
    She seems pretty busy and since she doesn't have a car, she needs to walk to get around. 
    Or it could be she simply lost the genetic lottery

    Meh i don't think it's right to shame her for being in an interracial relationship..
    ... but I have a biased opinion on this since I've been in one myself for four years so I kinda know what it's like when people side eye you for it
    love just happens that way

    So basically without her marriage, her chances would be hella low right? Her only main source of income is YouTube, and I doubt the Japanese government would grant citizenship for that to someone who never graduated high school. She's too much of a high risk. She's already been divorced, so the possibility she can divorce again has be in the back of their heads when deciding. I wouldn't be surprised if they reject her. 
    Who knows what'll happen, I've heard it's really hard to get citizenship from some people and some say it's easy :shrugs:

    I lived in Japan and it's pretty tricky for foreigners. I know a lot foreigners would go to Uniqulo since they're everywhere. For a foreigner body, I would recommend GAP, banana republic, American Eagle, Abercombie, Forever 21... all in available in Tokyo. They can more expensive unfortunately, but I'm 5'1 115 lbs with a 34DD chest, so shopping for clothes for me was like mission impossible. My only choices were foreign companies or wait until I visit home lol. I'm trying to teach myself how to sew so I can just make my own clothes

    I used to watch her videos haha but I quit because they got redundant and boring. I think she's a really pretty girl but kinda has a typical youtube guru personality if you know what I mean. I don't see why people would take a piss on her for smoking weed though, it's 2017 so I'm kind of hoping the negative stigma of smoking would finally die off by now.
    I guess I'll go watch some of her videos since I have nothing to do now haha

    The only saving grace for her getting citizenship is because of "marriage". Without her fake marriage there's no way they'd accept her since she doesn't have an education nor skills. 
    Unless she shows proof she got it, I will never believe she got it. I'm pretty sure if she gets rejected she'll lie and hide about it

    Sunny was really pretty imo there was nothing wrong with her facial structure at all. Now she's becoming a 강남언니 lol
    This was her in 2014 and now

     
     
    To be honest, she didn't need the chin implant at all. I'm not a fan of fake aegyo sal on anyone anyways. You can find her blogspot when she posted pics of herself back in 2010. She was naturally pretty but alas like most of the other vloggers, insecurity has ruined her

    All the jvloggers lurk in the shadows on this site, they'll just never mention it and pretend it doesn't exist on social media.. or that they just ignore the haters lmao. They came forward when Mira got caught with her shit because PULL helped their case, but after Miragate calmed down then all of a sudden they're like "What's PULL?" "Lolcow? Never heard of it". Also, a lot of them were actually former users/members on PULL eons ago.
    Sometimes when a new thread is made about someone under interesting people, the actual person of the subject will quite often conveniently find it and will make a post themselves. But of course it's always the same story "someone told me you guys made this thread about me!!" when they obviously lurk around themselves. Or they'll pretend to be a "friend" of the person of subject - like when Biibii's thread first started a "friend" made a post trying to clear some stuff up or something. Girl, please, you're lurking haha

  12. Athena added a post in a topic Dakota's videos   

    The only foreigner model thats pretty open about behind the scene stuff is Emily (lovelymilky), she's not mega famous but she does pretty well and hustles for it. She lives in an average sized apartment with her husband and lives a fairly normal life. Audrey (denshahime?) used to be really open about it, she'd used to talk about the cons/darker side of modeling in Japan/hong kong but she quit social media after getting pregnant. Taylor has a rich boyfriend and models once in a blue moon (for the sake of keeping her visa) so she lives the least realistic of a true foreigner model's life in Japan. Emily did say on her youtube channel that'd she make videos about modeling in Japan, which I'm hoping she'll do, I think it'll be hella interesting and will bring something new the table unlike the rest of the jvlogger clique
    Dakota is kind of a talent so she should be making slightly more, but I'm not sure. To be honest, I don't think Dakota is that famous, she's at the bottom of the barrel imo. But in my head, famous to me is like Rola, Becky, Leah Dizon, etc - but Japan will always favor mixed girls over pure caucasian foreigners imo.
    I think Dakota could've done better, but her insecurities just got the best of her

    her old "bedroom" in her old apartment is questionable lol
    I'm pretty sure it was a guest bedroom with a single bed for keeping her bf a secret. It would make sense since she was going for the idol thing and being single and kawaii is essential. So a tiny room like that would be easy to kawaiify for her 15 year weeb viewers. It wasn't until she dropped the idol thing and started to act normal we got to see more of her apartment and finally realized how big and nice it was lol. I guess still wanted to keep her bf a secret for a while more so she kept up with it.
    It's possible it was her main bedroom, but doesn't seem believable lol

    Lmao only taylor can live in one of the most culturally interesting countries in the world with money at her fingertips and be bored to death. What's the problem? Can't bear to backpack it? Can't bear to not have a large bathtube and no bath bombs? 
    if she's complaining that she's bored and lonely she deserves it. She's just lazy. The very least she can do is take some Japanese classes   
    Stop crying taylor, you're literally causing your own problems. Go to meetup.com and find some groups like yoga or cafes with other foreigners or something, that's your best start

    haha  I used to be hella materialistic when I was younger too. I liked luxury goods - make up, bags, etc. But then I found yoga, found the spirituality that comes with it, and went vegan. It sounds super cheesy lol. Something just clicked in my head - why do I need this? who am I impressing? Why buy something that makes me happy for such short/temporary  time? Why give money to fat cats who just want to get fatter? Why buy something at the cost of suffering of an animal?    Stuff is just stuff, we're always buying things just throwing it to the side. And money is just a tool in life to help us, not to be obsessed with.
    Thanks to yoga I've definitively humbled myself and woke up. Been traveling around south Asia to better understand it's origin, religion, history, etc. So in a way, I kind of feel sorry for Taylor sometimes, she's been raised with a silver spoon and lived in her own bubble - an expensive house/apartment and filling it with just stuff. I don't think she's ever really "traveled", she just goes to modern rich cities, stays in expensive hotels, flies business class, etc. Just never had any real down to earth experiences or essentially just not truly living life. Hell, the girl has barely ventured out of Tokyo... Japan has so many unique cities and places to see. Anyways, I don't think she's ever had to worry or worry about making mistakes because she always had daddy to rescue her. It's pretty obvious she's been babied for 28 years lol. It is what it is I guess, if her bubble makes her happy and comfortable then so be it lol
