I wanted to share some of my opinions on Alex because I really do like her but I'm beginning to have mixed feelings about her.
I think it's more envy than anything else because she gets literally $500 to spend on YesStyle every month but never really understands how coordinating works? I'm not sure how she can review all of these clothes, see the inspo photos for these clothes, and still rarely get it right???
Also about her Lamoda video, I think I misunderstood something. She obviously chose these shoes and had them shipped to Japan (kinda weird but whatever), so why didn't she bring clothes that she knew would match?? It's not like Lamoda chose for her and then shipped them over. I'm sure she knew that the website has a grungy and edgy style of shoes available (apart from those pink mary janes) so why... bring... 9/10 kawaii-style clothes??? Why go out and BUY more things to match? How did she lug all of that back home? So many questions.
Ok, yikes. Personally she sounds like she's literally about to cry. If she has left Splenda, thank god. I hope she gets her life together and makes content she enjoys, and finds someone (around her own age!!) that she loves.
I am very torn about Alex. On one hand, I'm wondering how she feels about owning loads of cheap pastel clothing and nothing of great quality. The haul videos are entertaining if I want to turn my brain off for a bit, but also I just feel a bit weird about her ex and fiance living together with her. It's so weird. I can usually respect someone's choices if they're not hurting anyone, but goddamn... I could never. It doesn't matter if her ex and fiance are friends, and that her ex has a girlfriend, it's still weird! I think Sam is a nice enough guy, but if it were me in this situation I would have asked him to move out the moment he got a girlfriend. Perhaps even sooner.
I really don't mind Archie though, the subtitles she puts for him are still pretty funny. However, that doesn't make me change on my opinion that Alex's living situation is beyond weird.
That's what I thought too, but also, why?? At least dress a little sleeker if you're trying to emulate the look of a car show model. She kind of just looks like a cheap sugar baby in all of those Taobao reseller clothes.
Like others have said, he's probably Splenda's work buddy. I didn't watch the video, but I can safely assume no one who actually knows Yumi would willingly hang out with Yumi regularly and be her friend. Unless they'd want to be her photographer, that is.
Normally, Splenda's pokes at Yumi are pretty funny and even if they are a little rude I can get past them. But when he said things like, "wow your makeup actually looks GOOD" and "you're actually beautiful", I was a little hurt. I don't think this is me being sensitive, either. I don't like Yumi, but if my boyfriend said something like that to me so directly I'd be really upset. If my boyfriend thinks something doesn't suit me, he doesn't say anything unless I ask. No loving boyfriend or husband should exploit their girlfriend or wife's lack of understanding a language because they find it funny. She doesn't deserve to be treated like that, whether she understands his jabs or not. God, I'm so annoyed with him, and he's not even my husband.
Guys I am SCREAMING. Splenda's reaction to hearing how she has ex-boyfriends just made my day. All of us here had a feeling Yumi was hiding a bunch of stuff from her past, and now that she's in China maybe some of it will be revealed. Probably not, but we can hope.
YUMI GANG YUMI GANG YUMI GANG on a more serious note though... i'm surprised someone like this sponsored yuhan. probably never again though as in this video she talks about her ear getting infected, and referring to ralph lauren as just "ralph" made me giggle like she knows ralph lauren personally
I own those shoes in ivory, I got them from Taobao maybe two years ago and they're awful. Awful quality, and hard to stand on because the shoe isn't level. She'll quickly learn that they're impossible to walk in when she takes a step outside. At the time I thought they were gorgeous, but I'm pretty sure they're a Liz Lisa knockoff. I could be wrong though /:
You know, usually a video like this wouldn't annoy me so much, but this one has succeeded. She mentions in the start of the video that this is one of her closets. She has taken over a master bedroom's closet with just her costumes. If she has taken over all of the other closets, where does Splenda put his stuff? Does he have a storage room to himself apart from that one office he has? It seems like every room is just Yumi's.
Something else that also struck me as weird was how she has multiple wedding and prom dresses. Why???????? Why do you hoard all this shit????? I mean, I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but she's really gone off the deep end.
