We've heard you loud and clear - negative reputation is back. Remember that it's still against the rules to complain about being downvoted - if you think someone's mass-downvoting posts or otherwise abusing the reputation system, DM a mod and we will take care of it.
I wasn't critisizing her using the dermaroller or its affecticeness. My issue was that on youtube she use to always talk about this cream or something and say that it was the miracle product that transformed her stomach and now she's done a 180 and is claiming it was the dermaroller that did it. It's like, please get your story straight and decide which product you want to claim is the miracle worker that changed your stomach.
I got a video of Lindy as a sponsored post on Snapchat? I forgot which snapchat series thing it was but she was advertising some Dermaroller on her stomach to show how it got rid of the sagginess (?! I don't know the proper term) from childbirth and made it tighter. I'm sort of confused. I stopped watching Lindy awhile ago but when she was pregnant with Issac she said some face cream made her skin tighter?! Where did this dermarolling thing come from?!
Tbh I think at the very least she should be in her mid 30's? I tried to Google her age and it brought me to her website and apparently she has two masters degrees?! Both of which she got in the UK. Both of her masters degree's are also from different universities so she couldn't have worked on both at the same time which would make completing them longer. She must have completed her degree's before moving to Japan. (I'm assuming she moved to Japan around 2016-ish?) Assuming she started college at 18, trying to add things together I think she would have to at least be in her mid thirties by now?
I've also noticed that Noe always goes out of her way to sit away from Mikan or disappear whenever she is trying to film around her. I remember in her school vlog she would leave the group or sit across the room to avoid being filmed by her. It's kind of ironic because Instagram-wise I think Noe is Mikan's most popular friend with her Instagram fanbase? I remember Noe (or someone else?) making some sarcastic comment in one of her vlogs saying "Hello people who followed me because of Mikan!" Or something. I think that's why none of Mikan's friends take or post pictures with her. They want their Instagram's to stay personal and don't want to become insta-famous from mikan's followers.
Are Kim and Sunny no longer friends? Kim's wedding is next month and ever since Kim said Sunny isn't going to be a bridesmaid I feel like I never heard either of them talk about each other again. Kim hasn't made any trips to Korea ever again this year or mentioned Sunny in her vlogs. I don't follow Sunny anymore but she seems too focused on Indonesia and her new "BF" to care about Kim or going to her wedding. (The reason why Sunny isn't a bridesmaid is also because despite the fact that Kim made multiple trips to Korea to see Sunny, she can't be bothered to make a trip to Australia to see Kim.) Unless Sunny magically shows up at Kim's wedding I'm assuming they had a falling out? I think it's just too weird that for the past few months Kim hasn't even mentioned Sunny's existence. *edit* In Kim's newest Q&A there was one question asking "who are your best friends" and she said they are her Australia friends that she knew from highschool that she doesn't really show on YT and didn't even mention Sunny. There was also another question where Kim was talking about relationships and she was saying she doesn't show her Fiance on Camera because a relationship is between two people and shouldn't need to be Floated(?!) For social media which I think was kind of directed at Sunny?
At first I felt sorry for her because of what happened with the Mikan incident but now I feel ZERO sympathy towards her. You can't just complain and cry about someone filming you without permission while making fun of you then turn around and do that exact thing to other people. She's a major hypocrite.
Speaking of videos: Apparently Tsuruko is now being paid to make videos for the Amino app now. Here is her profile. Anyone who is a verified amino creator account is someone who is being paid by the amino app to create content for their feed. Yumi King in the snowflakes section is another paid amino creator.
I think the videos are from August? But still, I find it really hypocritical how she accounces "I don't like being in videos" yet at the same time accepts this job/sponsorship of making videos for this app. Maybe another reason she doesn't want to be in Mikan's videos anymore is because she isn't getting paid for it 🤷♀️
Mikan said in her last video that we probably won't see tsuruko much anymore because she doesn't like being on camera but isn't she also a YouTuber?!... I thought Tsuruko came to Japan to be a Jvlogger like Mikan?
I know Mikan implied she helped tsuruko with all of her paperwork for coming to Japan but did she also help her find the place she is living in right now? I just find it extremely ironic that Mikan said in one of her tips for Japan videos that if you are a girl you should never live on the first floor for apartment buildings because it's not safe, yet in her typhoon video she said that piper lives on the first floor in her building.
Kinda off topic, but do you guys think her sudden lucky charms obsession is her way of trying to copy Bestdressed and her cereal obsession? I know Mikan is a fan of her channel and has kind of tried to copy her before (such as with her girl talk video). When I first started watching bestdressed I noticed there was some running gag/joke(?) That she seemed to be obsessed with cinnamon toast crunch? I know this is kind of a stretch but I'm starting to wonder if Mikan is suddenly trying to push the "I love Lucky Charms!" thing just to copy Ashley and her love of cereal. (I know in the Joan Kim thread people have accused Joan of being obsessed with Hot Cheetos or something only because some youtuber she was copying was obsessed with something similar? So I wouldn't really put it past Mikan to do the same thing.)
Idk about Australia but I live in America and in the part I live atleast I think I have seen these at street corners/crosswalks in cities and busy areas and such. Aside from that though no, I don't think they are too common here and I never knew what they were used for before either 🤷♀️
Personally I understand why she doesn't go around thrift shopping or buying more expensive clothing. You guys need to remember that all of her "cheap" clothing are sent to her for free, she doesn't pay for them at all. And, as someone who claims to always be struggling with money, why would she go around dropping lots of money on expensive thrift store and higher-end clothing when she could just wear her "cheap" clothing for free? She does not buy new items of clothing for videos, she is using free clothing items that were sent to her. I remember back in one of her first YouTube videos she even said that it was one way she saved money to move to Japan. She always accepted sponsorships and free clothing items and such for her Instagram and saved some money because she never had to buy new clothes herself.
