The articles are barely literate. Here is the opening of the one about mindful eating during the holidays: "FOOD IS A BIG PART OF MANY HOLIDAYS TRADITIONS. IT'S THE THING MOST PEOPLE LOOK FORWARD TO (MYSELF INCLUDED) BECAUSE IT BRINGS A SENSE OF COMFORT, MEMORIES, AND FAMILY/FRIENDS TIME. AS YOU CURRENTLY MAKE YOUR WAY THROUGH ALL OF THE MENUS AT RESTAURANTS, HOUSE PARTIES, OR YOUR PERSONAL FAVOURITE CHRISTMAS SNACK COLLECTION AT HOME, HERE'S SOME SIMPLE TIPS TO EAT MORE MINDFULLY." There are errors in every sentence.
In other news, Tom and Taylor bought a new coffee machine. In Europe, this machine costs between €4650 and €6000, depending on the finish and perhaps some other features (I'm not a coffee person). Tom is "into latte art" now.
I wonder how she feels about being so heavily edited in a makeup ad. Does she think that's a good way to sell makeup, to show how it looks on real human skin? This isn't a minor amount of editing. Was the makeup itself edited too? I've never seen her face look like this. The bone structure is completely different. But I guess as long as it makes money, right?
Have you guys seen how defensive she is in her comments? I have screenshots of them; this is just one example. They photoshopped her to look Korean imho. It's incredibly unnatural and kind of offensive. She looks like a computer-generated face.
I never said she had to say anything about the protests. Don't you think there are other ways of supporting HK or the world that don't involve politics? I can think of many. Donating blood, clothing, food, or water isn't political. The protests and unrest in HK affect people who work there, elderly people, homeless people, students, children, animals. But Taylor's silence and PR boxes, her selfies and her "lifestyle zine" tell me all I need to know about her concerns. And before people say she never discussed serious stuff: she kind of did, a little. When it was profitable for her. I suppose it is harder and harder to have respect for someone who has all the resources in the world, with very few responsibilities, but whose volunteer/charity work is almost non-existent. This great business of hers = recycled photos and blog posts cobbled together from old videos. I noticed she took the cringey videos of her mom visiting Tokyo down, since she spent a chunk of the time taking her mom to big chain shops and doing timelapses at Starbucks.
The free stuff and gifts are completely obnoxious. Two apartments, money to spare, no real job or volunteer/charity work, but look at what these companies give her. It's nauseating.
imagine if Taylor took a stand against the trend of rich people getting free things by paying the companies for these products imagine if she donated their retail prices to a charity imagine if she up-front told us she donates a certain amount or percentage to a charity every month or year imagine if she went to volunteer somewhere every week or even month imagine if she had an opinion on something, and not just because it's trendy imagine if she and her husband - who contribute to impossible beauty standards - funded surgery for people with cleft palettes or established a place where low-income HK people could receive free clothes for interviews imagine a Taylor who was not so obsessed with herself, and everything that Taylor could do it's a shame
She herself made a huge deal out of her "gluten intolerance" (her words, not mine) UNTIL she decided to capitalize on interest in HK food and do a Bourdain-esque series. People in her life had to constantly cater to her gluten-free diet (special restaurants, meals, etc ) and so it seems like a smack in the face to see her eating gluten on her channel without any disclaimer. It is a little like her vegan phase (when she called milk "another animal's pus" and eggs "periods" in a derogatory way, and then ended up eating those very things with abandon). It is weird and hypocritical. I don't care what Taylor eats. It is the fact that people catered to her special diets until she just decided to stop them. I'd like a video on her alleged gluten intolerance, honestly. Does it come and go?
She's doing this to try to dispel botox rumors. She's too dense to see how it confirms those rumors x1000. It's frozen in her forehead, around her eyes, between her eyebrows. Barely any lift when she tries to raise her eyebrows. I'm not sure what else she's had, but minimum she has had those placed thorough frozen. I don't care what she does to her face, but her pretend honesty mixed with heavy cosmetic procedures to stay "young" rubs me the wrong way. She'll tell us about her wax and gyn appts, but not botox and fillers. ooookay then. I've never heard about anyone getting embarrassed about a bikini wax, but most people don't feel the need to vlog it, I think. (I've never done it lol - do ppl vlog them?)
Here's a link to the hideous white sneakers: https://www.selfridges.com/GB/en/cat/gucci-flashtrek-leather-suede-and-canvas-trainers_690-10004-2469110109/ Gucci, currently £705 I guess the ugly Louis Vuitton Archlight Trainers (£1000 now - not sure what they retailed when she bought them) were no longer in fashion.
She has the luxury of not caring about the situation, so walking the fence in a vague "oh how sad" state really annoys me. It's a little like how Trump said there were fine people on both sides of a white supremacy rally & the people who protested it. Do you remember when she suddenly cared and got sad because a guy shot up an Ariana Grande concert? That was during her Ariana skinwalking phase, so she had to talk and cry about it. Nevermind all the other things going on in the world, other shootings, stabbings. Shooting at a white teen singer's concert? Have to react appropriately. #relatable #thoughtsandprayers #lifeissoshort #especiallymydogslife
