I finally chopped off a good chuck of my hair because it’s damaged from when I bleached it back in March. The stylist who originally dyed my hair didn’t make it lavender like I wanted, and had bleach sitting on my scalp for about 11 hours, and that is NOT an exaggeration. my hair used to be my favorite part of myself, and I always took very good care of it any time I dyed it or left it natural, always allowing a professional to handle bleach and coloring for me. but this one bad experience ruined my hair forever, and even though my hair is growing back okay, the blonde parts are brittle and thin, constantly breaking and shedding like crazy. Kenna, DO NOT lie to your followers. Bleaching your hair blonde is a RISK and a COMMITMENT that takes a lot of love to maintain. Take it from someone who bleached their naturally black hair blonde every year.
I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if Splenda warned her not to speak of their issues on her channel, if they are indeed going through a rough patch. That’s something extremely private and not really meant for attention, nothing positive comes from any youtuber broadcasting their relationship woes on the internet. With all of the evidence posted on his thread the past few weeks, I can imagine he wants to keep quiet for awhile, which could upset Yumi, because she can’t show off her “perfect relationship” for attention. I feel conflicted about this situation, because despite yumi being fairly open with us regarding every mundane aspect of her life, there is just so much we don’t know.
same. I truly believe it is one of our basic duties as an American citizen to register to vote, use our voices, and stay informed on the nation’s politics. turning a blind eye doesn’t make you cool or transparent. it makes you appear rather stupid. why wouldn’t you feel passionate, or at the very least concerned, about exercising your basic rights? people always ignore politics until something awful happens that directly affects them.
it likely isn’t. yumi is just a lowkey hoarder who thinks she *might* use one of these outfits in the future, but probably never will in actuality. I’m guessing most of it is so cheap or sponsored that she just accumulated so much of it in a brief amount of time, and now doesn’t know what to do with them, but can’t stand to donate any of it. I have wayyyy more clothing than my boyfriend, but I’ve always given him half the closet space, and threw everything but my angelic pretty dresses into my dresser. if I demanded to have the master closet as my own, that probably wouldn’t go down very well with him lol not to mention it’s just inconsiderate and unnecessary? like ... say what you will about splenda’s character and intentions, but he bought that house, and despite being married, he should put his foot down. yumi is a grown adult.
her newest video is a wardrobe tour, showcasing her anime and "lolita" outfits, along with a brief overview of her various purses. it is roughly sixteen minutes long, but i've taken the liberty of including screenshots of almost everything, excluding duplicates in differing colorways and her shoes. it's ... alot.
I also think it’s weird she brought her sexy Jurassic Park cosplay to the Phoenix Zoo. I was actually there around the same time as her, maybe a day after? like ... I can’t imagine her just setting up in the Dino’s in the Desert exhibit just for photos, and people are walking by just staring at her, but whatever. It’s not her most scandalous outfit and tbh it’s pretty okay, but I forget that I share the same existence with people like Jessica and Lia. Please just leave Arizona.
I did some research and found out the convention had about 400 or so guests in line for its first official day? Yumi’s videos and all of the posts I’ve found online make it seem like only about 20 people were there. (granted, my local comic con was founded in 2002 and only had 432 total attendees. we had ~100,000 last year, but we’re definitely on track to becoming one of the biggest + fastest growing conventions in the Southwest) i really hope she had fun, and made some friendships. I’d love to see her becoming more active with other people in her community and branch out from whatever the hell is going on her channel lately.
