    I am from a Catholic country too and here we pick up two different godparents... For example an uncle and a friend. So this tradition can be different anywhere and that’s not that weird. 
    Maybe Taylor’s boyfriend isn’t that close to her family, but they can see him as a friend? Or they just don’t care. For me it always has been just a way to show you care about chosen person and you see them as a special for you. I wouldn’t demand anything from them, because that’s not their child and being a godparent isn’t a contract.

    Parents are like partners - they will love all your imperfections and that’s amazing! Way better than somebody looking at you critically for the smallest reason. :)

    I’m embarrassed by people trying to convince themselves and everybody around that every single flaw is “cute”, “interesting” and it makes people “perfect”. Could we just accept that we can be ugly in the eyes of somebody or even whole culture? Or at least have things considered as a flaws, like anyone else? You don’t have to be pretty and you might not even are.

    Current banner was more or less created this way, so that’s actually possible.

    Yeah, it all depends on lab standards, country, product and position of the employee. In reality there can be one educated person and lots of helpers. 
    She made an assessment and now that’s her role to prove it (that it works and does all good stuff she claimed). If not proven otherwise - no one has any reason to believe her.

    I mean she works with „brilliant experts”, but they don’t even have to have any degree, because that’s just some supplements without testing requirements... And they were sooo brilliant to prepare this pretty basic vitamin mix, what a piece of real science!

    I’ve tried to watch this video, but there was any chance and I’ve eventually stopped... From what I’ve seen I probably can conclude that she tries to ride on people’s emotions and lack of common sense. 
    There are some finest specialist without a single name (or even university they would come from) given, some information like “they have looked at every single ingredient to make sure it will work together” and “these are proven to work”, but without mentioning any lab tests (or testing on people like some of the brands do) of the final products. And her “my skin is prettier” is just another anecdotal evidence given by a person benefiting from selling the product. Very credible. She doesn’t even show any evidences of her own improvements not to mention having any knowledge about preparing tests and checkouts (excluding other beauty products, keeping environmental stable etc) she could at least try to mention to be more serious.
    Tati is who she is - pretty (but it makes me uncomfortable... she looks like a person without any specific age) beauty blogger, who all of the sudden decided to release random product mildly connected with her actual field (and not really anticipated even by her fans, not to mention other potential customers) and including ingredients messing with hormones...
    And this argument about her fans being 18+ (probably 18-25 or so) isn’t that great, because firstly she still has lots of younger viewers, big percentage of these 18+ might be kids who years ago picked more “mature” age to be accepted (you can’t even have a FB account if you are under 12) or just to be taken more seriously. Secondly - being 18-21 means you still develop your body (skeleton for example). Thirdly - kids are way less critic when it comes to believing in things on the Internet and spending they parents money. 
    That being said...
    Tati wanted money, haven’t thought about her product as long and bright as she could and now she’s kinda shocked people have their own opinions.

    Speaking of her DIY - I have no idea why she haven’t added the blouse’s application. This would be like 1$ and 5 mins using a transfer paper and could really spice up the whole outfit, because that was an important accent for original one.

    I have to agree. Some of people here recently wrote that she could be the next Valeria Lipovetsky, but this girl seems to be another boring pretty and nice vlogger with rich husband, his pretty house, two kids and an YT channel about food, modeling and makeup. I would die living like that and - with an exception of lack of education - Taylor’s crazy life with quirky sense of humor seems way more appealing...

    The age gap between me and my boyfriend is 38% of my whole life, but we’re both adults... Tbh I’ve never felt any difference until our friend had asked “oh, are you able to deal with such gap?”. It all depends on the lifestyle. You can be a 25yo studying, working and living with your partner or still living at your parents house doing nothing.

    It is said that there’s a plague of people taking supplements without any knowledge or common sense... Firstly all of these norms of daily intake are averaged and it depends on age, body and personal preferences. Secondly there norms are still changing according to science’s development. Thirdly having good eating habits and healthy lifestyle exclude necessity of supplementing. (It is possible to even get hypervitaminosis...) Not to mention taking supplements makes our bodies lazy (because there’s no need to produce - for example - collagen when artificial one is delivered), so after quitting suplements your body will be more weak for some time. Also the fact something isn’t only allowed when prescribed doesn’t mean it couldn’t be dangerous for you or you can use it without limit/doctor’a advice.
    So yeah, that’s the best product for 15yo fans who will buy anything. 🤷🏼‍♀️

    In my country anyone (including government) isn’t allowed to earn money from the someone’s sex (or sex phone etc), so there’s no option for paying taxes. The law tries to protect sex workers and allows to punish anyone who pushes people to work this way and has money off it, but it means what it means - government also can’t make money off it even by receiving tax. That’s equally nice and economically problematic.
    So I’m not saying that sex work isn’t a work or sex workers aren’t people as everyone around, but I would drastically change the discourse of it.

    I don’t think it’s a shame to be a sex worker, I don’t think they should stop or they do something bad, why should I? But on the other hand I am fully aware that there are hundreds of more interesting or socially important occupies, so I don’t get why should I respect somebody’s ability to making money off sex. There’s something incredibly overly sensitive in the discourse of the sex work in general, the imperative to show how much you are ok with someone’s questionable choice just because the thread is still quite controversial. This kinda bothers me - way of treating it like it was more than someone who does stuff majority of people wouldn’t do and what gives nothing to majority of people. But we still are afraid of being not 100% political correct to the extreme.

    Why shame sex workers or the people who pay them in the first instance?

    What? That’s nice you seem to care, but oh man. I think most of the couples has these weird insults they use as a part of their inside vocabulary in a positive way and also there are lots of people who drag each other for fun. I personally find my boyfriend’s taste really important (for myself I could wear one long t-shirt and a moisturizer, zero makeup and fancy clothes) and often ask him about stuff I wear or do. And then honest opinion is best you can receive. At least I know when I do something or look good and he’s actually interested, not answering “yeah, yeah, you’re pretty” to anything. And not only that, but also that’s the best way to acknowledge his personal preferences - some of them may be really surprising. I would die acknowledging my boy was disappointed with my look for a year and haven’t told me wanting to be polite.
