Taylor R is a “hardworking” “self-made” “successful” former model and Youtuber from Canada whose main claim to fame used to be copying Dakota’s embarrassing 2012-2015 living doll phase. She’s since abandoned this endeavor to copy Casey Neistat, the Kardashians, Jenna Marbles, Safiya Nygaard, and Valeria Lipovesky, among others. In the past, she has focused on bad DIY videos and boring 30-minute vlogs in which she recaps serious challenges from her week, including hiring an assistant, eating food, drinking Starbucks coffee, exercising, and seeing various scam artists (fortune tellers, naturopathic healers). Since then, Taylor has entered a narcissistic era, producing such high quality content as:
* How I Became the Most Beautiful Woman in the World
* Hong Kong Fortune Tellers Criticized My Face
* I Let A Top Hair Salon in Korea Do Whatever They Wanted to My Hair [barely true]
* I Let A Top Manicurist in Japan Do Whatever She Wanted to My Nails [not true; also lol it’s Dakota’s favorite mani person]
* Stuck at Home and Stuck in Life [in my HK customized house that cost millions]
* Surprising Husband with an Outfit from When We First Met
* What I Eat in a Day [flaunting her bones]
* My Husband Picks My Outfits for a Week
* I Ate Only Pumpkin Foods For A Day
Her newly minted husband, Tom Lip, bought her a giant engagement ring from Tiffany’s and a diamond wedding band with the bundles of cash he earns running “digital marketing” companies. One of these companies, MenClub, was exposed for featuring at least 8 underage (age 12-16) girls in skimpy clothing on their site. After news of this spread, Taylor made two videos defending the right of men to ogle children (it’s “cultural”! Don’t like, don’t click!) and insisted that she was never an escort, a claim no one ever made seriously. The purpose of the MenClub “private room” (which requires an individual to vet the applicant’s salary) is still unknown. Taylor claims that it’s for latte-making classes and "cigar nights." Tom's defense of his business ethics throws new light on Taylor's dolly phase, given that he immediately recognized how to monetize Taylor's "innocent" look while still dating her. Tom has denied any responsibility for Menclub’s content and continues to employ the perverted author of all the underage model features. The perv continues to comment on underage girls’ bodies and gets paid to do so.
It seems that most of Taylor's work since she started dating Tom can be traced back to his businesses. Taylor started out by working for Beauty Exchange, did work for MenClub (though she denied it), and was promoted by Studio 54. There are probably many other connections between Tom and Taylor's "success," despite her insistence that her "success" is separate from his. (He finances the entire lifestyle she displays on her blog.)
Taylor has started her own business, TOAT, which is a complete rip-off of Gwyneth Paltrow’s goop website, right down to the code, which her web designer copied and pasted from goop. TOAT is meant to be a lifestyle website, but is rarely if ever updated with articles; those that exist are practically useless. The real purpose of TOAT is to sell overpriced basic clothes with a huge mark-up for shipping and give Taylor the opportunity to be a model without actually having to have clients book her. It helps her get endless PR packages with products she’ll barely use, too! Taylor refuses to discuss whether the cheap-looking products sold on TOAT are made ethically or where they come from. Among her eternally sold-out products are a number of knock-offs, the most notable being the bee earrings sold by TOAT (rip-offs of Chanel’s bee earrings). Interestingly, TOAT is now the owner of the domain menclub.hk, and it seems Tom’s employees are listed as employees at TOAT. Yet there’s zero evidence of TOAT being registered as a valid
company in HK or in Canada. Hopefully this will be explained in the future!
Taylor still manages to be relatable after giving up modeling by purchasing two condos with Tom’s money (one in downtown Toronto, one custom-built in Hong Kong) and flying back and forth between them. Her new full-time jobs include getting her face thoroughly frozen with botox/fillers, traveling in first class & by helicopter for no reason, and getting pregnant by Tom.
She got IVF during a pandemic despite barely trying to conceive naturally, and after an embryo stayed in her for 2 weeks before jumping ship, she and Tom decided to “take a break” from IVF. Anything that happens in her life (such as an ovarian cyst, Covid19, her assistant leaving to do more worthwhile work, or a 2-week old clump of cells exiting her uterus) is immediately used and milked for views from her teenaged followers and brainless stans, whom she brainwashes with her unique blend of stupidity, pseudoscience, and defenses of her (and her husband's) moral failings.
Beware the white knights and stans in Taylor’s thread. Focus on the milk and ignore the filler, farmers.

I wanted to make a better thread pic but I'm recovering from an injury and could only stand so much Taytay on my screen, even with painkillers.
Tom's face is from the attached pic. Taylor posted it on IG in this group of pictures https://www.instagram.com/p/CGllRtBHem9/

So I was looking for some evidence of TOAT's registration as a legal business. I fully understand that maybe my lack of Cantonese means I won't find it, even though HK has a central register of businesses in English and Cantonese. Regardless, I had hoped to find some kind of registration number or proof for its legal operations.
While looking for that, I noticed that the google result for "toat" company "hong kong" looked pretty strange:
Style – toat
toat.com › blogs › style
What was "goop" doing in there?
I checked TOAT's code using a publicly available website (urlscan.io):https://urlscan.io/result/d0016b14-4fa6-4c14-bb4c-d879c389156a/dom/
There are multiple references to goop in the code of the website, indicating that someone just ripped it off their site and forgot to change all the references to it. Even the alt text refers to goop.
<div class="footer__logo–wrapper"><img class="footer__logo–goop-logo__2LWvr" src="//cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0253/7157/4375/files/toat_logo_wht_1000x.png?v=1566468670" alt="goop"><span class="footer__logo–symbol__3Qw2l">:registered:</span>

The title "goop Giving" in the footer (above, final section) refers to this part of goop's website: https://goop.com/goop-giving/
stans can save their "detective-chan" insults. This took 10m, tops, and I sat on it for weeks. It's funny though. I suppose Taylor told her web designer to copy goop, more or less. Why else would someone spontaneously do such a thing?
Kek all that money and they hire a web designer who just steals code from GOOP.
I’m starting to question just how much money Tom makes and whether the website stuff is just a front.
Only a tinfoil speculation of mine though.
Lord, does she believe in Goops bs too? People keep saying she's skin walking XYZ person, but I literally think she's trying to be the next Gwyneth Paltrow. She's been dipping her toes and testing the waters with some already stupid opinions.
Also, did Taylor really deny association with Mensclub despite her earlier years promoting it?
I didn't have the patience to look through everything. Ay the very least, the style of the footer and "wrapper" is taken from goop. If you poke around with google, you can also find her web developer having trouble with the menus and posting on a message board for help with them. The same goop artifacts are in the snippet of code he posted.
But do I think the entire toat site is full of references to goop? Probably not. I think some got changed but he just forgot to change them all.
It's funny that Taylor's obvious attempt to copy goop is reflected in the code of her website. Note that in her entire grrrrlboss spiel about setting up her business all by herself, she never mentions the employees, space, money, and connections given to her by her husband + the fact that her entire idea is a younger version of goop. Of all the inspirations she mentions for her business, goop is conspicuously missing.
When Taylor is actively skinwalking or ripping off other source material, she never mentions the actual source. When she copied Popsugar's unicorn ice cream video, she claimed she hadn't even seen it & had been inspired by other sources. She was very defensive and nasty despite having copied practically every aspect of the video.

Samefag, PULLtards were also infamous for nitpicking other people's posts so only The One Opinion about their favorite cow can exist. It was all just infighting and nitpicking lines in each other's posts. Surveying the last thread
wow kinda looks damning
Header took me out funny as hell. Is Tay still masquerading as a girl boss
TOAT isn't their competition and will be ignored by Goop but it's a telling find. Tom's company can't afford to hire real developers to make websites, when the one thing his company made was websites. >>121711>anons pop by
Literally nobody does this on any thread here until recently. If you have nothing to post about the cow, just don't post and learn to integrate.

What is this look called?(not milk)
Nta but I pop into this and the Venus thread just to observe the infighting now and again.>>122436
I'm not sure, but it screams Jeff Goldblum to me.
Pulltards think that this place exists to compliment or defend cows, which causes infighting.
I miss the good times on this thread. Like when Kaka posts were tagged and when Taylor's old af husband funding her life was exposed.
Here's a nice example of stupidity. https://toat.com/blogs/wellness/all-about-cellulite
Cellulite is natural! Try to accept your body! But here's how to reduce the appearance of cellulite… the mixed messages make my head hurt.
This article is also a mix of stuff repasted from other places. I guess we can't expect anything more from her… but you know, what about Taylor's own cellulite? We'll never see or hear about that.
samefag but it's just the same people overreacting to someone asking what Taylor's look there is called. idk if anon was being sarcastic or not.
Those of us who are here for the interesting lulz and drama need to ignore these WK and hidden shit-up-the-thread posters. It's all intended to make the thread unreadable. Sad, I can't imagine getting irate because someone doesn't like another woman's clothes. And honestly, when Dakota would post her hideous outfits back in the day, we had a lot of fun laughing at her ugly boots and ill-fitting taobao dresses. It's not milk but it was funny.

Is Taylor well known as an influencer in Hong Kong? Seeing as she got a benefit cosmetics ad spot she showed in her latest video for a few seconds, as if to remind us she’s still relevant as a model.
Tom owns beautyexchange, pays a team to run marketing for her behind the scenes, pays for her agency "managers" and upkeep.
She's a great person to use because she and Tom spend cash in various ways to make whatever she's doing seem a success or relevant.
File: 1606632875650.png (1.3 MB, 1434x1336, 7864.png)
Everytime she gets her fillers redone she looks different. This time her upper lip is sticking out too much in an unflattering way. She must go to different places to get it done since if you went to the same…idk what to call them, beauty therapist? every time surely they'd remember what your look is and try to recreate it more consistently.
Note to stans: this is a saged question and not meant to offend.
Does anyone else feel like Taylor's hair always looks kind of unwashed or unhealthy now? I noticed it in her lookbook video (where it looked really greasy) and now it just kind of looks like she doesn't put much effort into it, or she's using bad products for her hair. It's always limply hanging or in this state that looks like she slept on it. It was kind of distracting when she was modeling the luxury dresses and hanging out at the mandarin oriental.
Or is this some kind of optical illusion because of the ashy color? Or a trend?
God I can't believe I'm scared to even ask about this because of the people who guard this thread. But I'm curious.
Blonde hair tends to look less greasy than darker shades. She probably also doesn't wash it every day and if she's using products in it it's likely built up. If I recall correctly, she's trying to go natural with her hair. I got a pretty good kek out of her trying the curly girl method on her hair. (pretty sure the curly girl method would make naturally straight hair look dirty as its meant to tidy up curls)
I use to be jelly of her old hair, but keep in mind she did a lot to her old videos to make her hair look "sparkly and healthy".

Old milk, but I just realized Taylor has the same engagement ring and wedding band as Valeria Lipovetsky. We already know she's been copying her for a while but damn..
File: 1606757356916.jpg (20.87 KB, 255x383, Single_white_female_poster.jpg)
Yikes, those are super personal things to even consider copying. This some single white female shit.
She should get an award for being the most expensive skinwalker on the board, she's almost as thorough as Emalee kek

Nta, quick google search an… yep wow that’s sick actually
yeah, this ring stuff isn't very interesting. These are common styles and a lot of rich women wear these ostentatious settings together.
iirc, she kind of showed him what she liked for engagement rings at Tiffany's once, and then he went back and bought the one with the biggest rock. She chose her own heart-shaped diamond eternity band.
It always struck me as weird that she pretended not to want to spend money on a wedding, but she's wearing the cost of a wedding (and much more) on her finger. A wedding is a headache, sure, but it's also something people can enjoy attending. You're throwing a party with and kind of for
your friends and family. I see no need to do this if you don't want to, but when Taylor made it about money, I had to roll my eyes. She could have thrown a couple small parties for people to celebrate with her - I think it would have meant a lot to her family especially! She didn't want to, fine. The decision should be respected. But then don't talk to us about hOw MuCh A wEdDiNg CoStS while waving your giant diamonds in front of the camera.
I felt like the tension and fighting she alluded to before her wedding shower in Canada might have had something to do with all of that. She didn't throw any party celebrating her own wedding so her family felt obliged to organize something during the short time they were in town for the holidays. Yeah, it's a reach, but I was surprised that she didn't handle that more graciously. Or at the very least, don't have a fucking wedding shower when you buy everything you want 24/7. Book a room at a restaurant, treat your family to a meal, toast the union, ask for donations to an animal shelter in lieu of (expensive) gifts. That would have made a lot more sense than forcing your family to figure out how to honor your marriage. People like rituals, and it was clear her family just wanted to have some ritual to mark Taylor's marriage. On a brighter note, a shower was a good way to get Tom out of the spotlight…can't remember if he was there or not but showers are usually completely focused on the bride. bet that made the day a little brighter for some people.
Meanwhile, they have two luxury places to live, one of which seems to just sit empty.
read the news. there's a global pandemic going on. that's why they aren't going there.

I was checking her YouTube follower count because I wanted to see how many she gained after hitting a million and…. does that mean she didn’t gsin ANY new followers recently?

Samefag. She reached a Million subs in march 2019 jeez
old milk but for some reason the way she got married didn't sit right with me at all. You could tell she was excited for a big white wedding then suddenly its a pink zara suit with an ipad and skype set up for her family.
You can tell how much of a huge family person she is so i was shocked when she didn't plan for them to even be present as witnesses, even if it was just one parent or something. The whole thing was so rushed, makes me tinfoil as of why.

Omg anonI just remembered that fiasco with the Vetements Sweater it was such a weird story. Why did she buy it and that whole selling aftermath was so messy and weird. It was obvious he put his foot down and told her to get rid of it…
Bonus pic bc he’s so nasty
Her family must hate
him though right? She's from a decent background, presumably privately educated and at age 31 is cosplaying as a teenage sugarbaby, flashing his cash and dancing around on youtube like an idiot. She blatantly has to ask his permission to make purchases like a sweater, it's infantilising. No parent would hope for this life for their adult child. I'd put money on them refusing to attend and obviously that would ruin the youtube fairytale.
File: 1607006202579.png (2.23 MB, 1080x1902, Screenshot_20201203-153141.png)
you're kidding, right? most families would just like that Taylor gets money from Tom. People are horrible.
Her videos are borderline retarded.
Tom liked her loli phase and tbh I miss that phase because she had some cute stuff, all in the trash now though.>>124000
She's middle class and her family gave her everything she needs, fairly normalfag until the weeb phase. She didn't go to private school or university, nor had the right social network to move up in life though. Being white in asia was her ticket.
I watched it on bilibili. It's hilarious how she thinks the current minimalistic/normie trend is actually "her style." It's a trend, Taylor.
"I don't really follow trends" makes every other video about some trend
I saw that little subtitle about how 90% of the clothes she wears for jobs aren't hers. It reminded me of that anon who posted in the last thread, declaring that Taylor is some all-important influencer who gets given things to wear left and right:>>120518
Since you read here, Taylor, we know your modeling clothes - the rare times you actually model - usually are not your own. But your haul videos and lookbooks and the clothes you wear to events like the Chanel party? All the useless clothes you bought to make retro Tiktok videos? Those were clothes you bought. No one gave them to you and you didn't rent them! Nobody thinks you got to keep the fancy dresses from your Mandarin Oriental ad, ok? We do see how many PR packages you get, congrats on having some agency finagle you endless free stuff for doing next to nothing. It's a real accomplishment!
How many vlogs did Taylor shoot where she was shopping for an outfit for an event?! It used to be all the time - and we saw her make the purchases. For some reason she doesn't want to own up to her wasteful shopping addiction. Better to come clean, I think, and stop buying fast fashion. No mention of TOAT clothes in this video, kind of surprising but she's abandoning her fake business anyway, it seems.
Her family home looks pretty big from what has been shown of it, didn’t her grandfather do something that made their family wealthy if not straight-up RICH rich?
I’m not even saying this in defense of her lifestyle or choices because I think she was incredibly impulsive and naïve, but is it really milk for an aspiring model to follow trends and try to marry into wealth?
I don’t think she could be called a career model though, especially when she said she would turn down jobs if she couldn’t have her circle lenses in and her appearance how she wanted it to be. I wonder if she was chasing another bag at that time, or was already spotted by Tom?
Did she really say she turned down "jobs"? Maybe what she meant was opportunities to audition? Because modeling auditions in Japan don't usually allow you to wear circle lenses, so she would've been asked to leave or told to remove her contacts before even auditioning.
But do you really think she would turn down bragging rights and good vlogging material over circle lenses? That sounds more like an excuse for her lack of modeling work in Japan. Remember her agent even admitted Taylor's looks weren't "in" and said she was sorry that Taylor couldn't really make it in Japan unlike in HK. That sounds more like she wasn't able to get the work, not that she was turning down offers.
She starts talking about it around 4:40, the entire video is an interesting watch though
She said she would say no if she wasn’t allowed circle lenses or dolly makeup and it lost her a lot of clients.
huh? she turned the jobs down specifically if she wasn't allowed to wear giant lenses. She was the one fucking up her eyesight while simultaneously losing job opportunities.
also she was the idiot for not choosing to wear prescription lenses. They make circle lenses for astigmatism but she chose lenses purely for aesthetics.
regardless i hate this video bc that thumbnail is not her eye. Circle lenses are not that unsafe if you don't do stupid things like Taylor did.
Parents are divorced, both live well outside of Toronto in an area where all houses are large and more affordable than if they were in the city proper. The family is typical middle class and father has a car dealership.>>125344>She clearly didn't need the money
She was funded by Tom by then. The apartment, her fillers, her ridiculous room and spending on loli everything plus entry-level luxury purses were something she never had before him.
Where does she live then, Vaughn? York Region? I live in Toronto and even thought the prices are literally blasted through any thought of even entertaining owning a house I gotta say it still looked impressive.
Middle class/Upper middle class families I see out of Toronto have a home like those cookie-cutter detached townhouses you can see Canada’s Wonderland from.
Not saying anything is wrong though anon, just has always made me curious as a t’rono fag.
Also, with the way her sisters look and the weddings thrown, I figured they were all just aiming to marry into money. Her brother looks like a bum during Christmas vlogs, but he might have a good job despite feeling no reason to dress out of lounge clothes for Taylor’s vids.>>124030
I saw an anon mention here that Tom and her married faster than I’m sure she planned had aimed to for more of a Chinese luck myth, since someone in Tom’s family had passed away?
I wonder if she expected to get married in France, and Tom’s family and hers would be flying there (Except the ones who live there already). It’d be kind of funny if she actually had a real wedding, separate from the Skype and Zara suit one. Unless her own grandfather was already sick so she had to move quickly, I can’t remember when he passed away.
On the other hand, maybe she compromised having a small and simple wedding so the expenses it would have used to throw an elaborate one would be put into getting an apartment in Toronto.
>>125437>Where does she live then, Vaughn? York Region?
She grew up in Grimsby, but the condo she owns is in downtown Toronto, in an expensive part of the city. I'm not that knowledgeable about Toronto, but I've been there for a conference. She vlogged her drive back to the condo, and I recognized the area immediately - it's near the big conference hotels by City Hall.
I don't know if her family still lives in Grimsby or not, but they have massive McMansions.
>Her brother looks like a bum during Christmas vlogs, but he might have a good job despite feeling no reason to dress out of lounge clothes for Taylor’s vids.
Her brother has also modeled and plays/played hockey (not sure if for money or not, don't care enough to find out). He seems to be in the car business as well.
>I saw an anon mention here that Tom and her married faster than I’m sure she planned had aimed to for more of a Chinese luck myth, since someone in Tom’s family had passed away?
Nah, his parents had already passed and it didn't sound recent. Most likely is that they had a shotgun wedding so they could buy that condo more easily. There's a lot of hassle when you are purchasing a place and your finances are investigated. Taylor didn't have enough to buy it herself so she needed to be legally married to Tom so he could purchase it. There's all these new restrictions about foreigners (esp. from China/HK) buying real estate in Canada. I'll leave it to the Cananons to tell me if I'm wrong about that, but that definitely seemed like the motivation for the wedding.
>I wonder if she expected to get married in France, and Tom’s family and hers would be flying there (Except the ones who live there already). It’d be kind of funny if she actually had a real wedding, separate from the Skype and Zara suit one. Unless her own grandfather was already sick so she had to move quickly, I can’t remember when he passed away.
Her grandfather died - in her own words - "suddenly and unexpectedly" and I don't think there was known illness. Just one of those things that happens to old people - idk if it was a heart attack or blood clot or what.
I hate to say this, but I'm kind of scared of what will happen if Taylor is still a semi-active youtuber when her Nana passes away. We never heard much at all about her grandfather and then it was this giant thing that made her unable to work for months. Her Nana seems to have a more central role in her life.
That said, I hope she doesn't continue to milk the natural deaths of old people when so many are losing parents and siblings prematurely these days. Yes, it's sad when someone dies. it's horrible. But there's a clear difference between someone who has lived a long, full life… someone who is 75+… vs. losing a close family member under the age of 70, imho.
I don't know what she has now but during peak loli phase, Tom would buy her a bag for each trip or photoshoot. She had an LV speedy, a few Chanel bags, and a lady Dior that she used on the tv show where she wore pink.>>125569
The condo isn't near Cityhall nor any conference hotspots. It's in the king west area where tons of cheap condos went up and tatty office buildings converted to condos. They paid a premium for what they got, as it's not central nor luxury being a Thompson hotel residence. The configuration is such that everyone can look at you through the windows from every angle.
Like you said, they likely got married on paper to secure the investment property in Canada and paid the premium because they were desperate to close and have a place to stay during the months they were visiting.
TY. Yeah, I would take whatever she says with a grain of salt. She wouldn't have been allowed to audition with circles lenses in the first place, so what she most likely turned down if anything were auditions.
Her agent also said clients were more interested in mixed/half Japanese for TV commercials (the kind of work Taylor wanted) and lack of Japanese skills were also a big problem.
She had a whole PR team helping her while she was in Japan and still didn't make it, so it was never going to happen for her at least as a model or TV figure. But she had all the tools and money and could've been more successful on youtube had she put in the effort.
In the first 30s she said it was sudden and unexpected. If it had been a longer illness, I'd think she certainly would have been there during his last moments. But whatever it was, it happened so fast that she couldn't get there before they switched off the life support. (She was with her family on skype when they did that.)
I don't really feel like going through all these voyeuristic videos of her crying and stuff to find out what exactly it was, so I'll take the risk that I might be wrong. But everything about the situation aligns with "sudden and unexpected," i.e. not something that would prompt Tom & Taylor to have a shotgun wedding that no one could attend in person anyway. If you get married because someone in your family might die soon, generally it is to share the celebration (in person) with that relative, I think. I don't even remember if her grandparents were digitally present at the wedding. I hope they were though.
Late but whatever>>123583
Correct my if I'm wrong but I'm pretty sure they weren't going there before the pandemic hit.
In a video from two weeks ago Taylor says they're trying to save money so anon's theory they're renting it out seems plausible to me.

It was Taylors birthday and this was her cake… apparently Taylor Swift inspired by the same bakery where Toms cake was from

She looks so strange in this video. Doesn't even look like her.
Your post plus the cake itself had me checking it three times before I got it>It's Taylor Rs>Tiny Rosie dog>But also a blonde girl behind a piano because Taylor Swift even though we have never seen Taylor R make music
I'm assuming Taylor R has no kind of musical talent because she has the right kind of image and fanbase to make/sell music to imo. We've heard her offtune sped up singing, and she had a crisis when she had to do some singing as part of a promo. Anyway, an unusual choice for a cake design for a non-musical recipient.

This hair from a recent IG post looks good ngl>>126049
Aha it's ok anon, I think even without the caption it was a confusing choice

I agree, her hair looks good but also good on her color and style-wise. The curls look very lively on her and flatter her face.
pic rel is a screenshot from her latest video. She looks really beautiful here, the make-up looks natural and healthy, the curls look so lively and beautiful around her face and that periwinkle color of her sweater looks gorgeous on her coloring.
She'd do herself a favor if she sticks to this type of make-up and hairstyle. It's much better than the rattails she used to do that don't flatter her face at all (or still does? not sure) and the harsh make-up she sometimes does.

This is infinitely better than the rat tails. She definitely benefits from it being shorter and more manageable; not sure if she’s just lazy with longer hair or it’s just too much work at this point, she has the time and money but never bothers unless it’s for a video.
Ironically given the birthday cake, I think something like pic related would suit her really well
Anon this "cow" has been completely milk-free since mensclub happened two years ago. There's literally nothing milky about this woman and everything that ever was milky is old milk and has been discussed over and over again.
If you're here reading or contributing you're just as much as an offender as me mentioning a tiny detail is cute. Because nothing
in this thread is milk. Nothing.
it's a pretty new thread, passionate anon. >>121540
this was funny, and the records showing that TOAT registered menclub.hk were also interesting
Is she a legitimate hoarder?
Over the years I feel like she has done a ton of Closet Clear Outs and gets rid of a ton of things, then gets rid of another truckload barely a year later?
Idk it's kind of embarrassing seeing how much she buys and then just throws away. Really tone deaf to film as well.
Fair enough, I thought the same about the coasters, but why does anyone call her creative? Every DIY in this video was taken from someone/someplace else. (For example, the coasters are done with Lone Fox's instructions.) I've never seen her do anything original.
Is is being "creative" to just do DIY crafts? asking genuinely
With regard to menclub, there's no way Taylor was ignorant of what kind of site it was when she agreed to do an interview with them and be promoted on their social media.* I checked out MC's FB posts from 2012-2013 and they were much grosser than the current site is. Full of raunchy pics, sexual innuendos ("The weather is so…. wet today"). Some of the commenters were disgusted by how young the featured girls were. I screenshot some stuff, maybe will post it later.
Most of the article links from that time no longer work, so you have to play around with archive.org and wait forever for things to load. However, there's a pretty disgusting one from 2013 that literally advocates dating underage girls:http://archive.today/zSFrx
"She is in her teens, youthful and full of energy. She unknowingly infects you and makes you feel very young. Getting along with her is very simple. All practical issues will be left behind without any constraints. The relationship is really built with pure feelings. It is very special and precious. It makes it easy for you to love her deeply. You have a wonderful feeling all the time, as if you are dreaming. You want to proudly tell everyone how happy you are, but at the same time, you are also paradoxically afraid of others' eyes and worried that people around you feel strange."
"For her, your role should not be just a lover, you should also be her brother or teacher, because if she can have someone by her side, she will not only share life with her, but also encourage her to grasp the progress and growth of this golden period."
Taylor chose to work with Menclub and got involved with Tom while things like this were being posted on their website.
*Taylor did a Christmas interview for them in Dec 2013. Proof:http://archive.today/0a3ubhttp://archive.today/xA5Vd
It's more creative than most people who just buy. I am actually very artistic (without blogging) but I had a big mental block about actually making
things. You kinda feel like the shop thing will be better. So most people aren't creative as in physically making items or art, because they are insecure. Taylor is confident making things and honestly it's a better purpose than dancing Tik Tok videos. Obviously she is not a master artist but ahe has a good finish quality and aesthetic skill.
This. I'm sick of her fans coming in here to post compliments on whatever thing she bought lately while simultaneously trying to mod the threads whenever posts like >>126757
come up again.
Idk how anyone can notice her hair when her face is botched from fillers.
NTA but I think it's possibly a cope whenever people see their favorite weeb with a disinterested partner. Like Rachel and Jun when Rachel says something sweet to him and he's like not looking up from phone
It may be the case asian guys are more reserved (caucasianfag here) but if your partner is a white girl would you not adjust your behavior slightly to match her expectations?
I think Tom and Jun do like/love their partners but they definitely don't show it in the way a Western audience expects.

Now Valeria is copying Taylor or is that hairstyle so popular(not milk)
You summed it up perfectly Anon, it's so narcissistic and stupid. The outfits aren't even good.
Living such a boring and aimless life is one thing, but making a video that perfectly sums it up and broadcasting it to the world? Embarrassing.
New money HKers grow out of dressing shit once they get more affluent people in their circle and want to fit in. Thing is this dude is old af and dressing like a student using parental funds.>>128403
He shared that story. Also wasn't he mixed heritage and the part of his family in France middle class or something?
does he look mixed to you?
i thought his sister just settled in france, maybe she married into money.

Tom himselfblikes to romanticize his poor upbringing (look at the comments on this post, he replies to a bunch of them saying they shouldn't view cage homes negatively, he was super happy to grow up poor - https://www.instagram.com/p/BxRXsnOlW-U/?igshid=wu3n5obm549j
He himself seems to do fuck-all for poor people in his own community, or at least, he and Taylor have posted maybe twice (period) about charity work - always asking their followers to donate, not showing their own work for charity.
Tom crawled to the top by exploiting overqualified women via Beauty Exchange (he bragged about paying them low salaries! >>113071
) and then doing some seriously shady stuff via MenClub (picrel). Early Menclub was a cesspool. I never really believed in all the tinfoil about it being a front for escorting, but there is so much disturbing shit in their post history from 2012-2014 that I don't know what to think anymore.
But hey, I guess those other lazy but totally happy poor people should just churn out their own wank sites so they can move out of the cage homes.

Confused about Japanese hostess bars and whether kyabajo serve foreigners? Just join MenClub VIP room and they'll guide you through it. Right, as if an adult HK man with money needs help understanding what a hostess club is all about. I think they know the basics, don't you?
They do serve foreigners. Places that sometimes don't are usually soaplands, health, etc… brothels, basically.
Maybe someone here can confirm, but aren't hostess and karaoke bars in HK mostly fronts for prostitution?
Taylor's story is BS but there is probably some truth to Tom's, idk. It's a lot harder to look into Tom's story, but I'm not sure there's a huge benefit to lying about his past. Someone who knows HK culture would have to comment.
I don't get the feeling that he lied, but I do get the feeling that he believes other people get what they deserve. Yet in reality, just because he got lucky and made money doesn't mean he worked harder than those who didn't or couldn't.
Anyone with a brain knows that working hard will only get you so far. And what does Tom "do" anyway?
she worked for BeautyExchange first (it seems) and Tom then asked her to do stuff for MenClub. They had regular features with models and actresses (both porn and normal actresses) so there's no reason Taylor had to be an escort.
I personally don't think she was ever an escort - she had too much of a prissy, stuck-up attitude for that. I do think she knew MenClub was shady and gross, and she was happy to have promotion through MenClub because it brought her clicks. Imho she played up the "sexy underage-looking childish girl going to bed" pics for MenClub (who else were those weird pedobait pics for?). She didn't even delete the lascivious comments men left on her own official page.
She liked money and she liked Tom's wallet/personality/random grunting, so they dated after he got to know her via BeautyExchange and MenClub.
Wait is this the same Private Zone
that Tom claimed was just for winetasting and coffee making sessions or some shit? Like you need a private area of your site for that? Pretty good proof it's for what we thought it was.
Zoo is one of the most famous hostess clubs in Japan and one of the biggest in terms of size and number of locations, but not that exclusive. Almost all hostess clubs are really gaudy. They do serve foreigners but they might not have English or Chinese speakers. The places that ban foreigners are not real hostess clubs, so I bet Menclub is also talking about "other" aspects of nightlife.
From what I understand, it's common for HK men to take top clients to clubs/bars that provide "extra services". At least all the finance and other business guys I know have been taken to these places when they visited their HK offices. I would be shocked if Tom doesn't do the same for his clients considering half of Menclub's purpose seems to be promoting them.
File: 1609336882788.jpg (102.27 KB, 768x1024, IMG_20201230_150116_962.jpg)
yes, that's the private zone referred to here. I actually was mindlessly looking through old MenClub posts just to try to find out more about that private area. I still haven't found out completely what it is. I did screenshot some early MenClub posts about private zone parties. They always advertised that girls would be there up until a certain point (maybe 2016).
I feel like the site changed/diversified a lot around 2016, but I have a feeling the grosser stuff just got pushed to more private areas (there's a private forum in addition to the private zone). Maybe Tom's advertisers didn't want to be associated with such blatant sexual content? I mean, for reference, men would comment about masturbating on so many posts from 2012-2015. Openly. Sure, that's what men do, but it wasn't deleted and in fact, that seems to be why those pics were posted anyway.
Pic attached is from the post used to promote/link the "advantages of dating teenage girls" article linked here >>126757
The girl in the photo was 15 at the time it was posted. Some men were rightly disgusted at how young she looks.
She made this recap 2020 video and used a pregnancy test for the thumbnailhttps://www.instagram.com/p/CJccj-gnbuH/?igshid=y1wx95rvqsj6
ofc it's confusing people, a ton of ppl congratulated her in the comments, and her stans were castigating them for not knowing it's a negative test.
Classic attention ho behavior. One failed round of IVF (embryo less than 2.5 weeks inside her) and that's the thumbnail for the whole year. If you missed the single video she did on this topic, you wouldn't have the slightest idea what had happened.
I guess we're autosaged because of the idiots in this thread who cannot sage their trash.
Anyway, I am watching the second part of her holiday vlog. It's really something special. I'm not even a few minutes into it but she is vying for the Most Tone-Deaf Cow award.
Vlog here: https://m.bilibili.com/video/BV1vy4y1e7mv
"I think what we're all going to be doing for the next few months(?!) is figuring out how to style all this loungewear we've invested in during this pandemic. I mean, at least that's what I've been doing, thinking of ways how to dress it up and wear it out"
(Right, Taylor. We've all "invested" in loungewear and dressing up loungewear will surely be on our minds as we watch hospitals and morgues get clogged with covid patients in the first quarter of 2021.)
This is said as she hops from salon to salon doing pointless 'beauty treatments' (but she'll never top up that filler and botox with us, fam! that's private) while wearing a knit onesie with a blazer thrown on top of it. https://www.instagram.com/p/CInlkyAnceC/?igshid=18p43wg7i54kx
The comments compliment her style, but this outfit is styled exactly as it is pictured on Zara's website, and wow, it looks… not like something a sane person wears in public.
She admits that she now travels through HK with a suitcase and changes clothes 3-4x in café bathrooms to shoot instagram photos and tiktok videos with her "assistant." Café bathroom changes during a pandemic… not even for legitimate modeling work, but so you can post on tiktok and instagram.
Are there Darwin award honorable mentions?
File: 1609722656620.png (1.28 MB, 1872x1080, Screenshot_20210104-020417.png)
She spreads her stuff all over the bench and her luggage on the ground. Changes into pajamas in public to shoot a tiktok video.
Eh, if you’re from a smaller town it’d definitely seem weird but this kind of stuff isn’t all that odd if you’ve ever lived in a big city. Plus she didn’t change her clothes in any real sense, she just slipped her pajamas over her normal clothes. I do agree that it’s a little gross though. I’d have to wash everything as soon as I got home o_o
Also I get what you’re saying, but I’ve seen tons of articles about loungewear becoming the norm since the coronavirus. I just googled it and the first three articles basically express exactly what she was talking about. (https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2020/07/20/the-slob-chic-style-of-the-coronavirus-pandemic/amp
So it’s not exactly off brand for a sometimes-fashion-vlogger to mention it or suggest loungewear styling tips.

I'm from a big city, I've seen some wacky stuff - so yes, it's not the craziest thing anyone will see in a city. But she's doing it during a pandemic, that's what makes it gross and bizarre. Normal sane people are trying to limit their time in public places. They don't plan IG and tiktok shootings and change clothes in public bathrooms. I don't know how she justifies going out and strewing her things on a dirty bench/street/bathroom floor unless she really, truly believes that the world needs her rip-off tiktok video.
Loungewear is what it is. I don't think anyone who had the money to buy new clothes specifically for bumming around the house is going to feel the need to "dress up" glorified pajamas for public outings.
She missed an opportunity to make a covid origin joke. Either she is ignorant of the origin or just incapable of making a joke that isn't faux self-deprecating cringe.
“Rich” is a relative term (someone making $50,000 seems rich compared to someone making $20,000, someone making $500,000 seems rich compared to someone making $100,000….everyone looks dirt poor compared to Jeff Bezos.)
In any case, if you watch her Canadian vlogs her family certainly seems “comfortable.”
For the record, very very few already wealthy men are going to entertain a girl from a lower class background. One, to protect their assets, and two, because the cultural differences are going to be huge, even if they’re from the same country.
nta, I got some comfortable stuff for at home, but I don't understand the desire to wear it outside. People miss wearing real clothes, I think.
source: live in big Euro city , have never seen ppl wearing pyjamas or loungewear on the street. Just adidas kek
I'm samefagging but
HK shut beauty salons and gyms again and was having clusters related to private parties, hospitals, cosmetic services. They won't open schools until after Lunar New Year.
I mean, just because HK has fewer new daily cases than EU countries doesn't mean you should go out and do dumb shit. Changing clothes for tiktoks is pretty stupid behavior imho but i'm more interested in how she got her beauty treatments. I thought all those services in HK got shut down again on Dec 6/7.
My personal sad about HK is that domestic workers there are barely treated as human and they are suffering a lot bc of covid. https://hongkongfp.com/2020/12/29/covid-19-lock-down-domestic-workers-on-their-day-off-says-pro-beijing-hong-kong-lawmaker/
