Hi everyone! With the new year, we want to continue to make some changes to the site. Firstly, we'd like to make a new banner! Artists who are interested in contributing, please get in touch with me with some samples of your work. Thanks so much!
Sharla herself chose to make money off of her life in Japan, what she is doing is pretty much the youtube version of reality tv. When you make yourself your product like she did, how you present yourself is an integral part of your business and it is up for debate. Even if her channel was something unrelated to her everyday life - say she had a channel dedicated to painting doll faces, how she dresses when doing promotion would still affect her job. If you don't look like you put in effort you are going to leave an impression of somebody who doesn't put in effort in anything in general. Texan in Tokyo had the same presentation issue and she is actually pretty fit with visible muscles so you can't act like this is only brought up because of her weight. When you are messy and shabby in front of the camera, can't be bothered to change even for the short time it takes you to make a video you are letting your fans know you don't think them worthy of making an effort. It's the same with companies you work for and any type of media you engage with in order to promote yourself. And if she had a standard 9-17 job she would still have to put in effort? Like, I am not asking for anything special or unreasonable that wouldn't be expected of her anyway?
This is pretty much what maintenance looks like for people who aren't gaining or losing weight but still need to be healthy. We all need to eat fruit and veggies, and need to exercise to keep our bodies strong and flexible, need a good sleep schedule and need to walk about for some sun and fresh air, need water and need to stay away from snacking on cheese doritos. Sticking to these habits won't turn anybody into a stick figure, it may cause some weight loss if you have bad habits, but that's it. So no need to panic over young viewers.
Her whole brain is declining. She does nothing but stay inside the house to film videos, run after the toddler or Tim (who isn't that much of an upgrade compared to having nobody but a toddler for company). Zero intellectual stimulation outside of tumblr motivational quotes she repeats in her videos sometimes. She's like Taylor but much worse. At least Taylor doesn't have any children. She has nothing to think about outside of that very narrow existence and nothing to talk about outside of that narrow existence. It's fucking depressing. I stay subscribed because I found her long ago before this slow mental death and I was afraid something like this was going to happen when she decided to marry that moron but she dug herself even deeper with Isaac. Sorry for the rant, I just watched that Feeling Lonely video and I am feeling some type of way...
Her videos, her thumbnails, twitter, none of that accurately shows what she looks like. At one point her face was shopped to look like Wengie and she gave herself tiny upper arms, while at the same time a tv show had her looking 3 times that size. There was a discussion about this some pages back, comparing photos, some of us arguing to have her put in the snowflake section.
She can keep her hoodies if she buys more stylish ones in normal colors instead of the cheap blanket type you wear inside when you're on your period. It's not like adult women don't wear hoodies when taking a walk or whatever, just learn to dress it up.
The turtleneck would have fit her better without the black shirt under it so it's not necessarily too tight. I think it's cute and I like the oversized top too but both are a bit too pale for her skin tone. Long skirts are the best for summer ♡ don't like this one at all (mainly because the fabric reminds me of a wrinkled umbrella), but she should definitely look into wearing long skirts, they would work great for her figure.
I think they want to keep the weeb dream alive, all of the girls who "made it" and got a Japanese husband/bf show it off, and all of those who hooked up with non-Japanese or mixed men kept it secret until much later. I think it's sad but whatever.
Sooo, do you guys think Taylor and Elbow-san are getting engaged? The whole spending Christmas time with him and her family back at her folk's place sounds engagement-y to me. Or maybe I just watch too many rom coms.
There is no way they haven't been together all the way back in HK too. I don't know what rich people are like with money but there is no way in hell I would ever feel comfortable with somebody spending so much on me and living in their expensive place unless we were in the engagement stage. And she couldn't have gotten that close to somebody new while in Japan, there simply wasn't enough time for that to happen (except when you want to marry for a visa like some jvloggers - in that case even a few months is perfectly enough time).
Laser hair removal takes doing it 4-6 times in a row on average for dark hair/light skin combination, and even then it only lasts up to 5 years at most. If you're lucky. It's not permanent and it doesn't remove the hair it just reduces the amount of hair you have. For blondes like Taylor it would be less effective, it would take many more tries to get any significant results and I figure she just gave up on it.
We already know what the house looks like partially furnished, there is no need for any more house tours until they get everything done. How many times are we supposed to look at it still in the exact same condition just because she changed some small detail in some corner somewhere. Idk, it makes no sense to me...
Ouch. Having kids to give your own life a meaning is the worst thing you can do to your kids. You shouldn't even buy a dog out of boredom let alone create a new life that will depend on you both mentally and physically for at least two decades.
If you compare her saying she has to go to her agency and that she got a lot of mail, she seems genuinely excited about it, but when she is opening them it's like she's sad/disappointed? Like they didn't live up to her expectations. It made me uncomfortable too. Also a couple of videos ago when she was giving Sharla her Christmas presents she was very excited, but when she was receiving hers it was like she didn't know how to act which made me feel a bit bad for Sharla.
