Wait, how easy is it to be accused of plagiarism? I've only been in college for a year and haven't written anything major yet. If it goes so far they actually investigate it, does that basically mean it did happen? Or someone plagiarized you? Damn.
I’m not sure about other universities but mine uses a system called turnitin and it flags up the most ridiculous things as plagiarism, so I’d imagine it would have to be pretty bad to be investigated

Same and it must have been huge chunks that were lifted to call for an investigation. I hate turnitin because it flags up referenced quotes etc, just up to the plagiarism officer to deduce what is blatantly copied

I had it happen to me once. In the end I realised i could just copy and paste my essay into a checker of my own and change anything that comes up.

It was mostly the dumbest things like a quote you copied.

We use turnitin as well and I use quite a bit of references to scientific journals in everything I turn in (which is allowed). Everyone does, you have to. Don’t know anyone who’s gotten in trouble for it. If you’re being investigated for plagiarism you probably deserve it.

When will Emily start to regret working for Grace and her shitty brands? :p She should’ve also left group chats to focus on her own course work/exams instead of copying other people’s work :p

Grace providing proof for us that she lies/exaggerates. In the first image she said she DID get suspended for not paying her tuition fees. In the second image with the letter from oxford it says that she might get suspended if she doesn’t tell the college what’s happening with her finances by January, they gave her a month to sort her shit out/tell them what’s going on.

So she wasn’t suspended. Also student finance automatically pays your tuition loan so she clearly fucked up and then exaggerates lol

A bit off topic, but did anyone else notice how she said chez Grez in her house tour? Chez doesn’t rhyme with Grez, Grace. But she’s fluent in French so I’m sure she knows that :roll:

She addressed this in a video when she made the account, she just wanted it to rhyme

She really is a pear shape isn’t she. All the candids from the visit to Portugal really show how good she is at angles.

seeing her latest ig post, i cant help but think shes trying to get tala to be the next gymshark/ missguided/plt kinda brand. basic white socks with tala all over it, fitness wear with tala on the arm. it definitely feels like she wants to make a brand that will take the world by storm which is difficult when its literally merch and the only people who will cop it are fans, people who dont follow grace wont be shook with the unoriginal designs and decide they need tala, they would much rather buy a similarly overpriced piece of clothing from gymshark (literally the only thing people at my gym wear)

pretty embarrassing that the wearetala instagram posted part of the factory tour and the comments are plagued by customer service requests 😂 she just posted the quality testing on her story as well, clearly it's not good enough if peoples products are splitting and ripping on their second wear.

They also keep saying that a factory abroad was better in terms of sustainability but they’re shipping products from one country to another. Not sure how that works out :/

Exactly why I won't order from Tala. She has all these angles and she claims she wears a size S or whatever in her leggings and shorts. Then you see the candids and think wait wtf if you're wearing an S how is the XS meant to fit me since I know my waist measures smaller than Graces.

It was the same with bloody gymshark. Ordered an XS and wondered why it was so big on my waist and always falling down then see all the bloody influencers who have bigger muscles/boobs/measurements than me wearing the XS and think oh thats why. This brand is not for me.

Same over here though, my PT measured me and I have a 10” difference in my waist and hips, and with a bra size about 1/2 down from Grace (depending on brand and style cause I’m holding onto that F cup for dear life now I’ve lost some weight- hopefully now I’m trying to eat more to build muscle they come back from the war), there is no way I’m fitting in a XS/S. My body ain’t built for the “small” size. I dread to think how see through Tala would be on me.

I agree. I don't know why so many influencers lie and say they're a smaller size, someone else I follow who is tall and very broad tried to say yesterday she wears XS in another brand and they're bursting at the seams. Especially weird of people like Grace who actually own the business. It's counter productive because there's a constant stream of people having to sell their tala order or send it back because it doesn't fit them. If she's not a size S no one will judge her, she is short but she isn't petite and it doesn't matter to anyone. The only reason people want to know her size is to judge their own sizing so why does she lie?

plus id rather order from gymshark since i ordered in the summer sale where its obviously super busy, got my items within 3 days and i can actually return something that doesn't fit me easily.
tala is not even half the size of gymshark and they fucked their entire launch up, AND you can't return anything???

tbf, it seems like a lot of people got screwed over by the gymshark sale - lots of random refunds, people who haven't heard or received anything, etc. probably not as large a percent as tala, but still.

Yeah I got a random refund (on the item I was most excited about) and it arrived today. So it took 10 days for me. Gymshark isn't that great either lol.

literally nothing. and with her chest there’s no way she’s a pear.

i know this is trash a guru but it feels like people are complaining just to complain lately, there’s hardly any criticisms or complaints with actual substance

I mean I def agree with you on the pear comment, but the complaints and criticisms of tala's customer service are truly justified (speaking as someone who has ordered from tala and dealt with customer service). It's disappointing as a paying customer to see an instagram-perfect business trip displayed as "fun in the sun" when I wish they could work on true customer service and fix communications issues. Companies should not use insta stories as the only method of communicating with customers and it's embarrassing that emails look like spam and are sent repeatedly with wrong information and misspellings.

I honestly expected a lot more out of Grace, I used to really like her work ethic and content. But all of these tala posts feel like a slap in the face.
