I agree. Many people based their opinions off his looks and his job, and made assumptions based off that... which fair enough, they didn’t really know much else but personally I like to give people the benefit of doubt. I’ve geniunely been enjoying reading his comments and such on Insta. He seems like a good man and a good partner, he seems to balance out Taylor quite a bit and I can see why she says he keeps her grounded.
I watch some moms of older kids on YouTube and they’re enjoyable. I love MommyTang and her kids are all enjoyable, it’s very cute watching her and her kids cook and eat together especially when it’s Korean food. But I can easily see Yumi marketing them as accessories rather than their own people, or easily falling into the Linzy trap of boredom and blandness (and her kids ain’t even old yet she just shows the most mundane things or shows their worst sides.)
And I def don’t think Splenda would be involved or stay involved. He always looks annoyed in Yumi’s videos, and this is when they have the time to have fun and do free silly things. But he just comes off as like “I already did the dad thing, now I just want a new young wife who doesn’t expect anything of me but will bend to my will and heed my beck and call.”
Im not sure if I should feel bad for Yumi or not. She’s not stupid, she’s smarter than she appears, and knew what she was getting into, I’m sure. Perhaps she figured it would be even easier to become a housewife with kids with someone who’s already a parent and figured he can financially support her. Her goal for her relationship was to lock a man down and have children from the very start.
By supporting herself probably means, she pays her own bills, her credit card, phone, whatever. She probably buys her groceries and health food supplement items, and spends her own money on the items she buys, clothing, etc. If her fiancé is paying for the apartment, car, and using miles for air travel, she’s probably able to put away a lot of whatever money she makes currently and in the past....and therefore spend it as she pleases. He makes a larger income and is able to substain while paying for larger financial purchases.
This new Miranda is so stupid. Not in the same way as old Miranda was. At least she used to be amusing and silly. Now she’s just this ridiculous caricature of a person. She’s just overbearingly obnoxious and quite frankly her born-again Muslim attitude is exhausting and boring as fuck. If she was actually serious about sharing what it’s like to be a convert, I would be interested because I don’t know much about religion conversion.
her mom is an average weight for a woman her age, not slim. She’s entirely average and a little chubby (but she looks so good and youthful!) her older sister Alex was a little chubby but I assume it was baby weight? Or maybe she just takes after her mom. Carly is thin but not stick thin like Taylor. Blake is an athlete so he obviously works out. Her dad is average, and slightly chubby. I honestly just think Taylor’s body image issues stems from the work culture and media culture she surrounds herself with. Taylor has revealed her weight, and it was underweight already. She obviously works to maintain her small figure. She definitely has issues with her body, from her disordered eating, ps, and exercising very soon after she had surgery. There’s nothing wrong with her having them, many girls do in this world today. (As in, I understand why not that I condone it as an ED sufferer but ...It’s just sad because she’s already very small and still struggles with her image.)
I was under my parents’ insurance until I was 26 and I had been out of college for 4 years. But my father’s insurance was through New York City, maybe the rule varies between insurance companies? But I’m pretty sure she can be on it until she’s 26. I’m not exactly sure how old she is...lol.
I wouldn’t say she has an eating disorder but maybe disordered eating. Most people have some forms of disordered eating, but it doesn’t necessarily mean they HAVE a disorder. Her job centered around her looks, her fiancé works in fashion, and honestly, most young women grow up with overly critical views of themselves. The media culture we are living in highly promotes very idealised and objectificed bodies of women. It’s not surprising at all. The more I consume a variety of media, the worse my disorder becomes. The less I consume it, I’m able to function a little better. My ED is not solely centered around media influences shoving 18-22 year old shopped and plastic bodies in movies/music/tv/social media, but it does negatively impact me and my mental well being. Unfortunately, it’s hard to escape. Taylor doesn’t scream ED to me, but I can believe she has disordered eating. I can imagine it’s hard to be an influencer who wants to be relatable by eating indulgent insta worthy food, and balance healthy clean eating into that while also remaining “picture perfect”
eh she’s been asking him to do a boyfriend tag for a while and then not too long ago..he was like oh if this video gets x amount of views or likes I’ll do it. So now instead of boyfriend it’s fiancé lol.
definitely. I feel like there is a bigger stigma against AMWF relationships vs WMAF. I often heard slurs, and comments like “why would you settle for an Asian man? They can’t please you” “but your kids won’t have beautiful blue eyes and blonde hair!” etc. My ex was a jerk but that didn’t warrant racism. His family pressured him to find a Chinese girlfriend. My family mostly was accepting but some were definitely not a fan. Intercultural relationships are hard, there are different conflicting cultural values and traditions.
I don’t know how deep her video goes yet but I’ll check it out.
Eh, there is some resistance against other interracial relationships. I haven’t watched this video yet, but as someone who was in a Long Asian/white relationship...there is still a stigma. I got plenty of comments about mine. She probably doesn’t deal with it as much though. She probably meant intercultural.
I felt like the video content quality was pretty good in her Eating Food with Foodies Friday videos. There’s just only so much that can be done in videos that don’t have much direction. I really enjoyed that mini series, so I hope Taylor does something like that again. I enjoy her vlogs regardless even if some of them aren’t super exciting ( I know some people are bored by most of them but I find Taylor really likeable so I don’t mind most of them lol)...but it’s nicer when she breaks it up with other things too.
I liked this video. It just feels like listening to a friend chit chat over coffee. I know she doesn’t always have a lot of exciting things to talk about, but for some reason, I just genuinely like listening to her. I really enjoyed watching how she puts on makeup and how she managed to put makeup over breakouts without it looking really cakey. Is it the formula? Maybe it just because I have dry skin but whenever I put concealer on a pimple, it’s so bad looking lol.
While I don’t really mind her overlined lips, it made them look more exaggerated when she did them in this video because her natural lip shape is really beautiful.
