Holly Gabrielle

Post by paperdoll12 » Tue Oct 09, 2018 9:22 am

She came up on Ruby's thread, so I figured we should make a separate thread for her...

Oh following this thread.
I've been subscribed to Holly for almost a year now and if at first I really liked her, her discipline and her energy (she really motivated me to eat well and do more exercise), I found myself disliking her more and more... Her videos are repetitive and way too long (please, she needs to edit more... in how many videos did she said the same damn thing about her ''craaaazy'' hair!). Her unedited extremely upbeat quirky and talkative personnality just gets on your nerves after awhile. It feels like she is constantly screaming at you.
Also, this might be a super unpopular opinion, but I still think that she doesn't eat enough for the amount of exercise she can do in a day.

When I first discovered Holly, I used to find her seriously irritating. She's grown on me now though, and I really like her, I think I 'get' her personality now and I just didn't before. Her sister on the other hand drives me insane. She is so misinformed on acne and various other aspects of her health it's a little worrying given she makes videos 'educating' her viewers. And I can't help but feel she's trying to muscle in on Holly's audience.

What annoyed me was the ethical clothing line, it was literally a white shirt with yellow writing on it, yet they were posting about how people went crazy over it

im suprised from other oxbridge youtubers i watch how little social time she has and how she never seems to be in the kitchen with anyone else or know her flatmates, i thought people on your corridor/staircase was a big thing in oxbridge colleges especially with family system
I thought she seemed to eat very little too, considering her past ED

I've always kind of gotten the impression that there's at least a part of her that isn't fully recovered from her ED - she can seem obsessive about food at times, to me, and often her meals can look large but seem as though they contain a relatively small number of calories. She's obviously a hard working and successful student, but I think there's still some underlying issues there.

I swear I genuinely tried to get her, but I just can't, she makes me cringe so hard and I always end up quiting watching her videos halfway through :rofl:

YES!! Such a boring shirt, and the embroidery is weird, I don't know, doesn't look good at all. The way they were talking about it, I was expecting more.

I like her videos, but what really concerns me is her diet. She eats hardly any protein! i didnt know she had eating disorder, if so, she maybe could continue going to therapy or something, because she visibly restricts herself.

Are you vegan? The protein thing is honestly just a myth. There is protein in everything- fruit and veg as well as nuts, soy, beans and pulses etc. She eats large enough portions of those that in theory she is getting enough protein.

One of the main reasons I didn't like her until recently was in her early videos, before she opened up about her eating disorder, she was eating a lot less and physically looked as though she had issues with food, but was still promoting her diet. To be fair to her, I think she's got a lot better in the last year. But I agree, I'm not convinced she's getting enough calories given how physically active she is.

Ugh, I remember a video from her where she said that humans are herbivores and since then, I couldn't real stand her :roll:
She just seems like the kind of vegan to me that is a little crazy about her eating behaviour.

She is crazy? At least she does not support the climate changer, world hunger and murder.
And by the way, humans are herbivores. Watch What the Health (free on Youtube) and get yourself educated

It's a gossip thread, we can say whatever we think about her :roll:

Well but saying the vegan diet is crazy does not only affect her, and the fact that this is a gossip thread does not justify writing nonsense

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion on these threads i dont dispute that but if you want to only say positive things maybe you should head over to the rave about a guru section and start your own thread

If you cant handle my arguments yours are probably wrong. I have nothing against critism, but you obviously have no good arguments

I am kind of neutral on her- but I do think it is weird she never seems to be with friends or even talk to anyone in her staircase. If you look at videos by PaigeY who does the exact same subject but is the year below you'll see she is best friends with her staircase and seems to have a much healthier outlook on the work/life balance.

Holly is a sweet hard working and passionate girl. Personally I find her videos a little long, but I really like her !

In one of Holly's recent videos, she mentioned how her family wasn't rich and her 'penthouse' room wasn't what she initially wanted. I get the thing about the room, but her family not being well off?

Their house is massive, they can afford to send Holly off with every supplement under the sun - yes, she shops at Aldi, but then again, I think that's slowly becoming a normal thing. I wouldn't be surprised if they helped finance Narna. I remember watching her first 'moving to uni' vlog and I was amazed at how much stuff she was bringing, and the fact that she could afford a brand new fridge and a brand new freezer. Yes, Holly, maybe your parents aren't millionaires, but don't pretend you aren't well off, because I can tell that there's definitely a fair bit of money to spare in the White household...

Also, Narna. Pretty much the most uninspired clothing line. I'm all for ethical clothing, but a t-shirt that just says 'narna' isn't going to cut it. That's a cashgrab, not an attempt to raise awareness for child exploitation or whatever. Maybe more inventive designs are coming out soon, but if it's just going to be the word 'narna', the extra money I'm spending is being wasted.

They certainly seem well off to me, i understand they live quite near London where property is costly anyway not to mention their house is massive and has masses of land, its certainly worth a lot. The food Holly eats at home and at Uni although not super expensive is not something anyone on a low income could afford.

her video came up in my suggested so i started watching it, seriously how much of a sheltered life has she lived, she is in tears over a bad essay, she needs to get a grip how will she cope in the real word if one bit of criticism sets her off

She really is quite immature if she cries about getting constructive criticism but is probably been spoilt so much and everyone praise her all the time she is not used to not been number 1
