  1. I don't think she can actually address this without her coming out looking bad, and so she never will.

    Her husband's business was different; the business isn't hers, and the articles published on them are realistically far removed from even what her husband has control over since he's a business owner and can't micromanage every article published. That said, the content was still gross and should've been taken down and his businesses reassessed, but they weren't, because he knows this stuff sells. She wormed her way out of that one because 1) she wasn't responsible for any of it, 2) he wasn't directly responsible, and 3) she played the 'it's a different culture' card. Whatever we say here, one of her video responses (she hid the other one) about the situation has 8.4k to 242 likes to dislikes. Her fans ate that up, she came out looking like she was super honest about it because she took the initiative to address it quickly. It was positive for her image.


    Yeah, about this - for anyone just tuning in, Tom's business is still fetishizing the idea of young girls as sexual objects and imagining them having sex as young as 12 or 13:


    Just one example. Meanwhile instead of reading the garbage posted on his own business's site, he's making latte art.

    Someone of his financial stature should be doing something to help local businesses or people get the protection they need, but he and taylor do nothing.


  2. I guess she's not really gluten-free anymore. I've known all along it was a way to restrict her diet, but the banana cake isn't gluten free. (Neither were many of the other things she's eaten in the past years, but someone somewhere always has to white knight and e-splain to me why she still could have some gluten intolerance or whatever.) It's pretty clear she can eat gluten without problems.


  3. I've seen her Instagram stories where she has been given so much free make up from so many good brands and she does the reviews on her Instagram for a quick couple of minutes, but it would be good if she reviewed them instead on YouTube. I know there isn't a lot to do while in lockdown but she is luckier than other people with things to do.


    It's a total waste to give her products. She squeals and practically has an org*sm over them, and then we never see them again. thousands of dollars of stuff, opened and slowly expiring in her expensive drawers. The disparity between rich and poor is really sad. I wish she would donate some of that stuff or ask the company to match the gift with a donation to a place that helps homeless women or minorities. Or anything. even a giveaway to her followers.


  4. After I watch this Toat try-on haul first impression, I decide to search clothes she's selling on Taobao. Taobao App has a feature on search, which is you could upload a photo, then app will try to match your photo with products they have on Taobao shop. As we know from haul video, each time Taylor go to Korea, she's gonna also update her shop products on Toat. That's the same idea with many shop owner on Taobao. 

    And look what I've found! I highlight her price and compare with the USD price on Taobao. Wow, I can't image how much money she's making right now. She's gonna have to explain where she import these products or things gonna get ugly soon I think. 






    Amazing finds! Actually, she is selling the skirt for much more money (the toat listing next to the spotted skirt is actually for the sweater). 

    Taobao marks up these things too. She is making a ton of money off of cheap clothes probably made in sweatshops. How kawaii. How grrrl boss.



    When is it ever not Sunday in her life? She doesn't go to work. 


  5. can we also mention she has VERY thick hair (it’s currently thinned with scissors) and it grows extremely fast. She’s not only privileged with money, but great genetics. If I fuck up my hair, it’ll be 1-3 years before it grows back the way it was, for her it will just be a month.


    I've got thick, fast-growing hair too, but I still don't want to chance messing up my haircut when I'm sitting at home most of the time anyway. So stay patient. Unless you have something that is easy to cut yourself, don't do it.


  6. Im not even going to bother. Other than being a fan of taylor, some people would look at this and ask why? No one cares about cutting your bangs. 


    I won't bother either, but hair salons and barbers are closed in most of Europe and a lot of America because of the pandemic. A lot of people are trying to cut their own hair and will watch her embarrassing video about doing this. I'm thinking of trying to clean up my (short) hair, but even I know better than to cut my own fringe if I can use headbands or clips for awhile.


    She doesn't even need to do it. She just wants views.


  7. Listing all those jobs she allegedly did is kind of peddling the "work hard and you'll succeed" message, though. Come on, she really worked all those jobs? I highly doubt it, just have to say that. 

    So she was actually employed by her family, as in, she got a salary? Were all of these jobs she did for money, or did she scoop ice cream at some school event? 


  8. This^

    Taylor R pretending criticism is just about her husband being wealthy is such a strawman

    like we all forgot she is married to a man that literally exploits little girls for a living. Right Taylor, You are the victim here /s


    Yep, his site still has ridiculously underage girls featured on it. 

    Also, here's an article where the author openly speculates about the age of legal consent and all the sex an 18yo has had before turning 18:


    So, no. Nothing has changed. 


  9. She could have been sedated and barely awake


    This picture is so gross. I'm sure she agreed to it or wanted it, but it feels weird to look at someone posing for a selfie while coming out of sedation. I know it probably was not predatory, but it sure has that "feeling" when I look at it. 


  10. .....i’m literally just repeating what she said in her video so people who haven’t watched it would know. i don’t particularly care whether what she said is accurate or not. 

    Sorry, I have endometriosis (diagnosed via surgery), so her misinformation about it bothers me a lot. I'm not yelling at you. I just can't stand people who spread wrong information about it. Same goes for Taylor's ignorant statement about ovarian cysts - nothing will stop a woman from having a functional or follicular cyst unless she doesn't ovulate. 


    I know I sound crazed, but imagine having a painful life-long condition and hearing someone ignorant spread myths about it from her Youtuber platform. If there had been some other non-invasive way to know I had endo, I would have done it. Instead I woke up after over 4.5h of surgery (planned length of time was 1h) and immediately asked if they found anything, because I was terrified I had gone through a needless surgery. It took so long because there was so much to remove. And then I (a student)had a hefty medical bill for all the extra anesthesia and dr consults needed during my surgery. I would have gladly had some "painful dye test" to confirm diagnosis before having 11k surgery. Pushing dye through the uterus makes no sense either - endo implants can be anywhere - on the abdominal wall, on intestines, on ovaries... They are uterine tissue that has implanted elsewhere.


    So just forgive me for hating her ignorant comments; that part of it is personal. She could also learn to pronounce the condition before assuming she has it.



    surprised no one has mentioned that she confirmed having PCOS in her newest video and said she also thinks she might have endometriosis. she talked to a doctor about getting tested for endometriosis but the doctor said the test is super painful. she just started having symptoms recently so she decided to wait on the test. 

    Endometriosis cannot be diagnosed with any kind of dye test. Usually, it must be diagnosed via exploratory surgery. If she had endo, they eould have seen it during her surgery for untwisting her fallopian tube. And if you don't believe me, here is a link to the mayo clinic, where they discuss 4 methods of potentially diagnosing endometriosis. None are painful except surgery:


    Pelvic examination, ultrasound, and MRI cannot diagnose all forms of endometriosis. It depends where the implants are. Ultrasound can tell if you have cysts, but not whether they are Endo cysts. 

    Yes, I heard her haltingly, hesitatingly say she seems to have PCOS. She is still being frustratingly vague about it, because I'm not sure why she cannot clearly say she has been diagnosed with PCOS by a dr.  She told us all about her poop very clearly and proudly.



  12. Sorry, this is so weird. They didn't even try consistently for a year (there were many periods of time where she told us specifically that they are not trying!). If Taylor had legitimate medical issues, she would tell us. I feel like she wants to immediately be successful at conceiving and not wait; it is exactly how she approaches everything. 

    She wants to get pregnant during a global pandemic. ooookay. 


  13. Oh god, then what IS enough to un-snowflake her? That was literally a decade ago. It happened in 2010. Her life has changed exponentially since then, and she has never once done it again in 10 years. So what do you even want? She made an apology shortly after the videos surfaced, but everyone made up reasons for why it wasn't good enough. She sure as hell doesn't owe you anything now in 2020. So what do you want? She has not been really active on the internet for over a year and isn't even relevant anywhere anymore. There's nothing "notorious" about her anymore. What's the point of brining this up? There are millions more e-famous people who have done far more bigoted things, are still actively doing it, and are actually relevant who don't have a whole sub-forum insisting that they be continually shamed.. so please let go of that bogus reason.


    She lied about having leukemia, what about that?

    I don't know why you're so invested in policing whether Dakota is discussed on the internet or not. People will stop talking when they want to. 


  14. I think this is more likely. She's gone to Korea to pick out clothing pieces (although that's not a confirmation that all of her stock comes from Korea), so it's probably the case that she just ended up sourcing her clothes from large factories that supply multiple outlets.


    When did she go there to pick anything out? She says in her video about setting up the business that she was sent samples. It's not like the supplier of her clothes have brick-and-mortar stores.

    She went to Korea but I don't think she did anything there for the shop side of toat. Just visited cafes. I can't be bothered to skim through those videos again though.


  15. I 100% get what you're saying, but it's cheaper on Toat tho, unless I'm wrong. it's $12.83 on her website and the other one is $16.87 according to that screenshot 


    She's selling earrings individually. So you only get one.  I can't read Chinese - is that price for one or two?

    On lolcow, someone identified these as replicas of signature Dior earrings. Interesting direction for the "brand" to be taking. 


  16. I wonder what her agreement is with companies for the PR packages she receives. I'd actually think product reviews wouldn't be bad for her channel so seeing them just on her insta stories feels like a missed opportunity.

    I'm also wondering if she has a manager for her YT? She probably does but just never talked about it.


    Me too. She's absolutely terrible at being a spokesmodel for these things. She doesn't review them. She puts them in stories, and the stories disappear. It makes me so angry to see her just get sent gift after gift and to do nothing with them. We rarely if ever see swatches. We never see any evidence of her using the products, but she opens them all so she isn't giving them away or donating them. It's such a terrible waste. Companies sucking up to rich people ad nauseam. She's never been an influencer, and she shouldn't start - she's horrible at it. How much makeup and skincare does this acne-riddled person get sent each week? How much does she even use? She has an orgasm over every PR package to the point where it's just sickening to watch - sort of like watching someone waste food tbh.

    There is a way to work PR packages into a more holistic public persona, a persona that would use these packages to give advice to followers or review the products or talk about ethical/health aspects of the products. She does none of these things. She probably does not even use them. I only know Drunk Elephant (which everyone knows is overpriced - The Ordinary called out their ridiculous prices in an advertisement in 2018) through these dumb PR packages. Has she ever talked about using it? Back when she was in kawaii mode, she seemed to go through foundation so fast - I started wondering if she was being offered money to promote new foundations regularly (Charlotte Tilbury was one of them). I have a theory that a lot of her kawaii-period posts and videos had hidden sponsors (she made a comment once about how her YT manager helped with sponsors and people were surprised because she had never disclosed any). I think the laws during those years were not as strict, and it's possible different laws applied in Japan/HK (so she was not required to disclose). 

    Sorry, I'm in a really bad mood, but as a society can we please stop adoring people who do nothing with their money and privilege except buy more useless things, who don't even have an opinion on world events, let alone advice or wisdom about them? Can we stop passively letting these people acquire fame and followers? Taylor could do some very simple things to rehabilitate her general image, but she doesn't want to do them, or is too stupid to do them. 

    toat is pretty dead, too. Have you noticed all the "sold out" items (what a joke) and virtually no reviews of any product anywhere? Red flag. I wish someone would review her actual site, which is a web designer's nightmare. 


  17. I have long spidery old lady piano hands with big knuckles. It can't really be helped. There's very little you can do about it short of getting filler in your hands, and who cares enough to do that? Waste of money and totally pointless. No one outside of PULL and lolcow cares how your hands look. It's kind of silly to even discuss her hands, which cannot be shortened  or fattened by choice, when there are so many things she has chosen to do to her face/body. 

    Her hands don't look bad to me. Not on the level of my hands anyway.


  18. I was just thinking about that because the first one took so long to do. I wonder how the guy who did her hair feels about her changing it so soon.




    At the end, he tells her to come back in a month so he can refine the bangs (they were too short) and dye it. Did she go back to him for the color change?

    edit: nevermind, she went somewhere else. 


    She looks miserable in this video.


  19. Tay in Japan.

    Does anyone else here believe that they seem to flee from HK each time something bad happens? I mean, when protests escalated - they flown away. Now virus is spreading and again they left. Not saying that she needs to stay, but she seems to be so snug. In my personal opinion, her devotion for the place she lives in and people is kinda minimal. I think everyone should contribute to the local environment, not just taking from it.

    Maybe that’s a coincidence and I didn’t follow Tay that much to know that it was planned before and not just privileged behaviour of her?


    I actually don't get this sense from her. I was surprised that she stayed in HK for the notoriously hot & humid summer despite the protests. Additionally she chose not to say anything about the protests, which is her right and perhaps best, but it made for a weird situation. She lives in a city rocked by tear gas and violence and is filming all the gifts companies send her. OK then. "But her work!" No, she barely worked at all during the summer. Like next to nothing. 


    So in this situation, I would not blame her or anyone else who wanted to leave HK or China because of the virus outbreak. I am surprised she's still there. Sure, perhaps it is being blown up by the media, but if I had a house in Canada and I wanted to get pregnant, I would go there for a couple weeks and let things settle before heading back to HK. Tay has demonstrated how stupid she can be when it comes to concepts like medicine, following (real) doctors' or vet's instructions, and hygiene (remember her long hair touching food while cooking, Rosie licking cake she was eating on camera, not washing her hands after dealing with something dirty). Chinese traditional medicine is not going to help her acne or coronavirus. She should leave because to her, selfies are more important than safety. But anyone who wants to leave China or HK temporarily because of this virus should not be shamed. That's a personal decision.

    Btw she did a collaboration with Blair Walnuts about traditional Chinese medicine. She claimed it helped her in a bunch of different ways. Weird that she won't say this on her own channel. I also doubt it had any effect.


  20. To her credit, Taylor does that face 50% because she thinks it's funny and 50% to "prove" she can still move her face and to dispel the botox rumours.


    it's so funny. it proves the opposite. 


  21. The articles are barely literate.

    Here is the opening of the one about mindful eating during the holidays:


    There are errors in every sentence.


  22. 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.


  23. 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?
