Dang. If she wants to artificially slim her waist, she should get a proper steel-boned corset and do it safely, not bruise her organs with a thin pleather string. Wear the corset over a lightweight tank top, preferably seamless, and tie it snugly but not tight. In an hour she could tighten it comfortably, much like you might want to retie your sports shoes after warming up. All at once and with such a tiny surface area? That's not right.
Waiting on these box dye results! If it goes wrong, do you think she'll just not post above her shoulders for the next x weeks, or will she pretend like she wanted it to turn out that way? (I still think she could make a video series on repairing her hair over the course of several months to year(s)- "state of my hair", product reviews, growth check-ins/measuring days, hair masking &chat, hair styles while growing out hair, hair cut days where she videos herself going to a salon and getting the damage trimmed out, or possibly a Big Chop video if she wants to go that way. She could do it in her aesthetic and get tons of views.)
So I guess it's confirmed she's moving back to California? I mean, she hasn't made an official announcement, but this basically gives it away. I mean, it's not the worst move she could make. It's what everyone here has been saying she should do.
It would be simple. Next time she moves, she just doesn't buy all the crap. She could do a series of videos: "I own xxx items. These are my tennis shoes." and then she makes a whole video on why she loves her thing so much and why she chose it.
I've read multiple times that women who don't wear the right bra for a long time still experience a "shifting" once they do start wearing the right (size, etc.) bra for many months. If your friend can maintain her weight, then she may see the skin settling into its new shape as well as the breasts settling into their new bras.
I would judge her a whole lot less if she stopped acting like the most special person to ever first have the idea, ever. It feels like, even as time wears on, she continues to need to differentiate herself not through accomplishments of any form, but by ticking the most unique boxes ever. She doesn't just take the personality test, she has the rarest personality on the test. She doesn't just have autism, she has special autism that requires her to talk about it instead of dealing with her issues and getting herself to the point where she can interact with normal society. It would be one thing to have these traits and mention them a bit and then let it be, but her speshulness is her entire existence. It's like dealing with Ebony Raven Demetia Way. I wish she could understand that it's okay to like things and be like everyone else. Being an outcast can be painful, and very lonely. Sometimes you make it into your entire personality, but it's not healthy to be like that. It's okay to be different, obviously, but it's completely fine to have some aspects of your personality and interest that are just like everyone else. It can even be fun because then you can do those things together with others.
TBH most decorating is bland and is generally all the same. She has demonstrated the ability to make aesthetics that are appealing to a massive amount of people. She'd be an excellent interior designer for regular people (like, everyone's mom, aunt, and coworker friend, but not a good fit for that guy who decorates with replica shrunken heads or something). I don't think this is what she wants to hear, though, because it's calling her ordinary, which she refuses to think of herself as even if I am saying it in a good way.
Seriously, if she picked a street she could easily travel to and tried out each restaurant and made a video per restaurant, or if she tested out one of her regular skincare/makeup routine products a week, really if she did any effort at all.
