Seriously. Also I don’t get the impression Elle cares about having close girlfriends. She seems to only look for activity partners or colleagues or casual acquaintances. Once there is a man, her social activities mostly revolve around him or herself. Or her mom. Kinda sad. *shrugs*
A close friend would see that she’s not really the girlboss she presents as and pop a very important bubble. Her mom would never do that.
People like Elle who live in their own delusional dreamworld don't like people to tell them the truth. I had a friend like Elle and she hated if I pointed out something that was inconvenient to her twisted version of reality. She also went to the therapist only once and said she wasn't going back. Probably for the same reason. I think people like Elle are unhappy but don't want help bc it takes them out of their fantasy

It's so weird that when she is clearly feeling super sad and lost, her immediate reaction is doing something braggy content in order to show up and talk down to her audience. How deep are her insecurities? Why do you need to teach people who clearly know how to do their groceries to, well, do their groceries?
Her acting is also getting so bad. I think something else might have happened. Maybe, she got rejected after that interview in Vancouver?
She may have! Something was definitely wrong. Going on job interviews is stressful. In the fragile state she's in she should not be sharing every time she has an interview. I really don't think she is going to get a job easily. No proof of this, just a feeling. For someone who chose to make 'I work as a lawyer' a huge part of her channel, being unemployed has got to be embarrassing.
Like Adel said, she is not going to address her issues so she will end up in dead end relationships with people like Rick or worse.

I doubt she heard back already about the job. If she is not the selected candidate, it is unlikely she will find out right away. But maybe the interview didn’t go well and she knows it, in which case it would mean she may have some self-awareness.

Some of you (mostly two or three people) who were talking shit about software engineers wish you could land one yourself. Doctors are geeks too and have a way stressful job to look after themselves, at least software engineers have this nerdy cute look going on. Also just because you play video games doesn't make you a lower-tier human. Playing video games is very common with millions of consoles being sold and most likely your kids will play video games. Heck even playing candy crush or whatever on your phone is playing video games. Software engineering is not something anyone can do and you have to be smart for it. I would take a software engineer over a doctor any day. Not only they can earn nearly as much as a doctor with potentially earn even higher but also have a good balance of work and personal life. Believe it or not software engineers and tech guys are going to be the most sought-after.

No one really attacked software engineering. If anything, some people made some of the points you are making.

Unfortunately, you are about three threads too late with this.

Also about her new gemstone jewels etc... she just wants to be Lisa Eldridge. She loves and aspires to be that boring Audrey Hepburn loving basic bitch. She idolizes Kate Middleton, she's very pathetic IMO. I do like her but something isn't right with her, obviously. As everyone seems to have pointed out, she behaves like a little girl living out her fantasy of what life should be.

Well then, I guess Elles Seattle layover really is because she found herself a software engineer.

For an intelligent field, he'd have to be a real dumbass to date Eleanor, Queen of the Empty Heads :rofl:

ETA... It's pretty pathetic how she has no good content without a man. How is that supposed to be inspiring, all you 50-somethings that just die for her? Please tell me. Gosh, even Dickles the Depraved Dumpster Fire himself was BETTER CONTENT than what she can pull together alone.

We have to think from Elle's perspective. With her traditional housewife mentality, she would love to land a 'prestigious' doctor and be a Mrs. Dr. Elle Florence. Doctors are geeks so a boring Elle, who cooks pasta everyday, is perfect for a geek. Nobody in this day and age would scoff at people who are able to do either of these difficult jobs, but Elle is different, I feel like she still has this 'social class' mentality and she would die for a doctor. Also, docs basic income is around 400k a year, surgeons around 700k+ a year (I have both docs an surgeons in the family), so Elle would love to have 'spending money' like that while making her plastic necklaces.

Honestly I don’t even remember who dissed software engineers nor do I care and I’m sure most people who post on here don’t care, either.

As long as the guy can support her, it’s all gravy in her eyes.

Nobody dissed software engineers. I'm sure her plastic pants and crop top sweater was to attract one.

Anyway! I'd give that company a week to say she's hired, anything longer she may as well move to the next.

I wonder from this Mrs. Dr. Elle Florence statement that she watched Sex and the City and wants to be Charlotte, pearls and all.

Another Sephora haul? Hmm. I give her credit for posting twice a week (a lot of YouTubers have gotten lazy and hardly post at all). But I think it would be better for her channel if she only posted once a week and posted higher quality content. She mentioned future videos would include “What I Eat in a Day” and capsule closet tips. Her cooking vids seem to be her most popular, but she’s done quite a bit of “capsule” content recently. I just wish she could come up with something new and creative to film! At least she mentioned she’d be filming a tour of Seattle video – I must admit I’m looking forward to that as I’ve never been to the PNW. :)

Her 3 min rants about her dumb jewelry is really off putting. "You can use your own creativity". That to me is just code for " I'm too lazy to come up with my own good ideas so you guys just pick".

So her excuse for buying more makeup is bc she didn't bring much with her? When she has loads of make up packed up god knows where?

If I have to hear her say Pall- ette one more time...


Also, she was suspicious trying skincare founded by a super model... but she's trying to sell jewelry just based of her being a youtuber. Does she not realize how she sounds? Skincare from a supermodel makes more sense than buying pearls from a girl that makes make up videos on YouTube!

Didn't Elle plan this Seattle trip several weeks in advance? She claimed that she didn't bring a lot of makeup or skin care with her. How is that possible, since most of her stuff is already in storage? How much stuff did she even have with her in Hawaii to sift through?
She seems less miserable in this video but that's probably because she's still on a shopping high. She says that she will be doing What I Eat In a Day videos...so basically her content is not going to improve. At all.
No mention of a job. Or figuring out where she's going to go when her time at the Airbnb is up. But at least she now has several lip balm options. #Girlbosspriorities

And she pronounced it properly once and then went back to mispronouncing it! The only thing I can reason is that she is so deeply insecure that she puts on this phony accent to make herself sound exotic. If anyone questions it, it opens the door to 'well, I am Belgian & French. I have lived abroad.'

The way she says palette sounds like Paulette. 🤣 I think in this case she is trying to sound sophisticated and classy especially since we hear her say PALette in the same breath.

I don’t know where she gets this idea that mispronouncing words will make her sound urbane or exotic to her audience. I’m assuming it’s the same in Canada but there is no “upper class” accent in the US. Mispronouncing common words as a native/life long English speaker, however, make you look stupid. 🙄

Ugh the thought of her doing a girlboss tour of Seattle? I'd rather eat paint than watch that. Her fancying herself a tour guide extraordinaire coupled with those words she just can't seem to pronounce right coupled with her *GAG* modeling shots... I just can't. At this point I really can't think of any content that she could pull out of her ass that would be likeable. She's too fake and affected. That will taint everything...

NGL, there were a couple moments I legit thought she had a speech impediment/disability. But after hearing her enunciate certain words correctly (like here and when she reviewed that YSL bag), I think she’s just a weirdo.
