    I was able to somehow find it on youku by searching for taylor videos under 10m long. I think. The person who uploaded it did not include the English title, but Taylor R was still in the title. 
    To download it, I used, which I can now recommend. You don't need an account or anything to use it.
    If anyone is wondering when this was originally uploaded - the original date is June 24, 2014. I know that the style she has here was NOT invented by Dakota, but the whole style of this video is like a mashup of Dakota's first interview in Japan (where she went shopping in Harajuku) and one of her outfit videos. I hate that big heart dress and frilly shirt - so babyish and ugly. If this is what attracted Elbow-san, idk man. It's extreme. I like to play with clothing too and I'm not a teenager, but this particular outfit really looks like ageplay to me (the gakusai actually doesn't imho). Well, everyone has the right to have his/her own fashion.
    I understand why she was so unnerved by that bodycon dress and the sexiness it symbolized to her, but some of these dresses are unbelievably short. I wonder if she could even really sit down properly in a couple of them. Interesting how she rarely wore high socks but they feature prominently in this video (Dakota again).

    I found it and managed to download it for posterity:!15~5~A&f=26827783&o=1
    It was really difficult to find.

    Yes, that one! She had her hair in pigtails and you could see a man filming her in the mirror at one point (not sure if it was elbow-san or not, but it probably was).

    Link to Sweetheart Hair video (from HK times):
    I'm looking for one video she deleted - her cringey "Shopping in Harajuku / Summer Outfit Video" (she's wearing a big heart dress). Does anyone have it? The old link does not work anymore.

    It was awhile ago, but she still is FAR from a role model for anyone struggling with body image. Here are a few posts I found. I'll try to screenshot them later: (she weighed and measured her non-existent belly before/after doing this "mini-belly challenge")
    Promoting skim milk as a diet aid: 105143趁著夏日前飲脫脂奶修身!(⋆ૢʾ ˙̫̮ ʿ⋆ૢ)/142143 
    I don't believe she writes a lot of that text herself.
    I also remember when people noticed her puffy cheeks in the music video and Pocky ads. She said she needed to go on a diet (when she was stick thin) instead of explaining what happened to her face. Even if she didn't get fillers, that is such a messed-up thing to say. There was zero evidence of any weight gain on her body. She was quite underweight at the time.

    I can't believe she talked about some non-existent "pouch of fat." That's not fat. That's her organs.
    I'm so sick of her fans justifying her obvious dysmorphia and eating disorder (which, don't forget, she used to push onto her young fans by doing sponsored content for cereal weight-loss diet and the weight-loss benefits of milk). I have dysmorphia too but you won't find me broadcasting that on social media as something "normal" - add to the problem that she's a model who works out and restricts. Her body size is not natural. I'm just tired of everyone saying "oh, she's a model" as some kind of justification for all of this. Most models do not act like this on social media. They don't obsess over their non-existent fat, make jokes about throwing up calories, or talk about how their abdomens are too "fat" for crop tops. They don't ask their collaborators to make them look skinny on camera. (Newsflash: Taylor is already underweight.)
    And yeah, Taylor edits her pics. She admitted some editing, but she uses other tools that she won't cop to (yet). It's obvious that she edits her legs. SHE'S THIN. SHE DOES NOT NEED TO DO THIS.

    Taylor eating and dancing on TV:
    I know I've never seen this in full (just maybe some tiny clip she posted)! Can someone figure out how to save it?

    Hi! I'm sorry to have alarmed you. I'm afraid I don't know anything about Royal Canin for cats. But feeding one bag of it (or any other food) to your cat (or dog) won't hurt it in the long run. My dog has eaten a bag of Royal Canin and lived to tell the tale.  My point (which I didn't make too well) is that Taylor is obsessed with her own diet, but doesn't seem to think very much about Rosie's unless it has to do with product placement (she did that trial with a fresh dog food). 
    I did a quick google search and it seems like there may be fewer problems with Royal Canin for cats, or at least they are not showing up prominently (though corn/maize is still used in it). I would just do a little research and find out if it's the best thing for your cat (and maybe it is). For dogs, there are a few sites for checking food, and many of them point out the problems with Royal Canin: One gimmick of Royal Canin is to pretend that different breeds need different things, but most of their dog food is all the same, just marketed differently. And it's so expensive. I found a good brand for my dog that costs under 1/2 of what I would have paid for Royal Canin; it's completely wheat- and maize-free, doesn't use animal by-products, all the protein sources are clearly labeled. I like that. I'm not a pet food dictator, though! I was just surprised that Taylor of all people didn't do much research about her dog's food.

    There's something that has been weighing on me. Taylor's lack of discussion about any current events or issues - even those that would fit her own agenda - is glaring. I'm sure she doesn't want to alienate her right-wing viewers, but the fact that she, a model, who has probably been exposed to sexual harassment and objectification in the workplace, has NOTHING to say about #metoo is shocking to me. She has no excuse: even her favorite celebrities have something to say about it (Taylor Swift had that court case last year). The one time she had something to say was about the Manchester bombing, which touched her because she was currently copying Ariana Grande's look. And even then, she focused on how it made her feel.
    I don't think Taylor has to take a stand on every current event and controversial topic. But it would be nice to know she has thoughts beyond her obsession with the Kardashians, Kanye West, and the Pauls. I recently read another article about Ivanka Trump and thought, "She's like Taylor." She won't rock the boat, won't take a stand for women, is completely self-absorbed and a slave to her own selfishness. It's sad. The #metoo movement would have been relevant to Taylor's image of the hardworking woman, the sisterhood she thinks she has with other women. The issue of gun control is one she could discuss in light of being raised in Canada and living in both Japan and Hong Kong. How did she feel as an immigrant in Japan, a notoriously xenophobic culture (at least in the past)? Was she ever ridiculed for not knowing Japanese or acting like a gaijin, or was she given a free pass because she is skinny and has long blonde-ish hair?
    There are vloggers who address relevant issues without being annoying about them. I come away from her vlogs feeling like she lives in a rich-woman's bubble, where nothing matters except what clothes to wear, what expensive food to order, what Lush bath bomb to use tonight, what silly thing she's going to do that day, when she's going to have her massage and work out to keep her underweight body. Has she ever done anything for a charity? Has she volunteered ever? Does she care about what happens to other people? What does she think about Trudeau aside from the fact that he's "hot"?
    Finally, I really hope she has stopped feeding her dog Royal Canin, as it's awful for dogs - lots of corn, rice, and wheat fillers that lack any nutritional value. It just makes vets lots of money. There are so many better everyday foods for dogs. If a vet prescribed it short-term because the dog had been sick (as mine once did for 2 days), OK. I would never feed a dog this food long-term.

    I really wonder what she's doing. The almost complete lack of selfies make me think she might be having some procedure done. In the couple pictures she posted before her total absence on social media, it looks like she's been losing weight.

    The way she treated the Christian café was really offensive: the creepy scare music for . . . the same kind of decoration that is in every old cathedral? I always got the impression that part of her family was Christian (she doesn't drink, pranking her grandmother by ordering tequila, her brother has a bible verse in his instagram profile, and I'm pretty sure one of her sisters was posting bible verses too). So why treat a pretty benign café like a house of horrors? It didn't deserve it at all. I was expecting something a lot weirder, but it just looked like cathedral decor. 
    That said, Taylor has probably never bothered to visit a museum of ancient or medieval art & history. Imagine how she'd vlog parts of the British Museum. Actually, I got nauseated thinking about her stupidity among those pieces of history. Imagine her visiting the Blue Mosque and mugging for the camera. She treated Japanese shrines horribly too, so I'm now certain that she'll turn anything into a joke just to get views on Youtube.

    Her birthday is in 1988, so she turns 30 next year.

    Guys, I feel like it was all staged anyway. She probably talked to him about goung to the hairdresser and said she wouldn't make a big change, but then tried to make it look like she did. I'm sure he lets her do whatever she wants. She's blessed with hair that can grow that long (not everyone's will) and he probably thinks it's marketable for her to have that hair in Japan. 
    I wouldn't like it if my longish-haired boyfriend cut his hair into an office drone short cut. Everytime he goes to get it trimmed, I joke about mourning the loss of his hair, etc. It's only halfway serious. If he were dead-set on getting a certain haircut, I'd support him, but we're strong enough in our relationship that I can also give an opinion about what hair looks best on him and what I like, too!

    I couldn't understand her when she said, "Definitely getting rid of the ____ dress" and held up a white dress. What did she say? What dress was that?

    Don't forget the beauty blender she never washes. How she can complain about acne and not wash her brushes/blender is beyond me.
    Must be nice to get super expensive products for free because you have enough followers. If some random woman wrote to Jane Iredale about my skin and how tragic it is that I'm considering taking birth control, I am sure they wouldn't give me a private consultation and a bag of full-size products & makeup for free.
    If it touched Taylor's heart, she should do it for someone else: and not a youtuber with thousands of subscribers.
