I think they are alright, honestly. The thing that annoys me is that she never follows the shape of the makeup in the original image, and always does her own thing in that respect. Other than that, I think she's pretty good.

I do agree with that, she does always do it within her comfort zone.

From experience, taking a year off isn't the best idea. I went to college right out of high school, took a year off in between sophomore and junior year, and I am honestly very proud of myself for going back and graduating with my Bachelor's degree. But it was hard, and I mean HARD to go back. Once you get out of the swing of school it's not easy getting back into it. Just my opinion, but I don't think you should take a year off just because you don't know what you want to do.

Well it's partially that and partially the fact that my parents can't afford real classes for me yet they make too much for most financial aid and haven't done their taxes in three years so if I even wanted to go right away, I couldn't. I do volunteer at an animal shelter for 11 hours a week and once I'm 18 I want to apply there because they have a couple on site homes you can live in. Sounds weird but it's not a typical shelter, it's spread out over over 100 acres and has an actual house the cats live in, heated cabins and fenced woods for the dogs, and barns and pastures for the farm animals. I planned to 'move out' by working on site there for a year or two so I can get together money for at least real estate schooling which is my current plan. The place pays 11 an hour but you don't pay rent pie utilities so for me, it's a great opportunity

It sounds like Best Friends Shelter in Utah! That sounds really cool!

I think there's a huge difference in taking time off/postponing/choosing not to go to university to work full time or volunteer full-time is a perfectly justifiable thing to do. It's when you see these YouTube personalities that drop out of university or quit working full time to "focus" on their channel is when it gets concerning and questionable. I don't know anyone who isn't working or going to school or both. And these YouTubers leave their jobs or school to do what? Sit at home, surrounded by makeup and go shopping? It makes them so hard to relate to and, I think, causes a lot of animosity from their subscribers. No one wants to watch the poor-little-rich-girl routine, even if she keeps insisting that she isn't wealthy. Her parents might not be, but Laura isn't hurting for money right now if her whole plan is to work part time.

Yeah, you're right. It's hard to watch her videos knowing her dad isn't doing well because she has at least 3000 worth of make up in her room..... And she has at least 8 pairs of victorias secret yoga pants. Her mom seems to be doing great though, with the nice gifts she got from her

I disagree with usernamexhere. Everyone says it's really hard to go back, and that you probably won't go back to school if you take a year off. I took a year off because I didn't feel ready and I couldn't figure out how I was going to pay for it (My parents aren't helping me at all--Yey government loans!) I went back and I'm here now, and I fully intend on getting a degree. The hardest part was seeing a good bulk of my graduating class take off and make friends, start their degrees, etc. when I was stuck working at Pizza Hut. And really, seeing that happen is what made me so determined to figure things out. Now the one thing I would never ever do is go into college undeclared, it makes everything very difficult. If you have a general idea what what you want to do but cannot pin point it, go in declared with the general idea and change it later. A lot of colleges lock out people who aren't certain majors from certain courses.

I am dying of laughter right now. We pay full amount for braces unless it's covered by our insurance company. The majority of these companies pay a fraction of the cost too.

I didn't get to see the video. :(
- I understand her not knowing what she wants to do with her life so she decides to drop out, take a semester off, and what not. But I think she is just lazy and prioritizes youtube over everything. Youtube isn't going to pay the bills in 10 years, that's for sure.
- I don't get the big deal about taking a year off? I took a year off from high school because I wasn't sure about what I wanted to do (career wise). So I worked and traveled. Now I'm in university and I am so glad I took that year off. It was probably one of my smartest decisions.

No need to be rude. Plenty of Canadians have bragged about being superior to me for having free braces in their country. Sorry i don't know everything.

I disagree. If she's "no good at makeup", then why is she a Beauty Smartie for Seventeen Magazine? I love her tutorials, they're very unique and look awesome :) she deserves more views & subscribers <3

You definitely don't need to be talented to be a Beauty Smartie- they pick girls who fit the brand of the magazine... You can't also say you think Megan is good at hair, right? And she's a supposedly a "Beauty Smartie" for that soo...

Challenge Yourself Sunday

Post by urbanfaced » Sun Feb 24, 2013 2:32 pm

Her first challenge was to eat more healthy. In the episode 2 where she showed her results it was basically all processed food that she bought at the store. One meal was from Chipotle and one had bacon in it. What the actual fuck, like is this her idea of eating healthy I can't even. These videos are definitely a flop she shouldn't do these...ughhh. :|

I agree that for the average person, her food choices weren't very healthy. However, considering that she's in recovery for an eating disorder, I think she's doing great. She probably should've just called her goal "eating regular-sized meals" instead of "eating healthier." I don't think that people realize how difficult it is for recovering anorexics (or EDNOS) to return to normal eating habits. I'm actually a little concerned for her--opening herself up to all this criticism may not be the best for her recovery :?

I don't understand? What does she plan to do with her life (I mean how does she plan to support herself or family one day if she decides to have one) since she doesnt want to go to college?

She plans on using the money she makes from youtube for the rest of her life.

Yea when she said eating healthier I though she meant she would diet. I'm glad that's not the case and I don't mind her eating at Chipotle. Everything in moderation!

Being a beauty smartie is not a benchmark for skill or talent. Dulce is a beauty smarty! However, this girl does good inspired looks. She recreates them pretty accurately.
