In the UK our uni system works differently, so when you apply to uni you apply for a specific subject and that's all you do for the three years. So I think we specialise a lot earlier than you guys (at least, I know we specialise a lot earlier than in the US, I don't know about Canada). So if she started Uni at 18 she would be done with a Law Degree by 21.
she wouldn't be able to pratice law with her degree, she's not a lawyer or anything, you have to have more education before she can be a barrister or a solicitor.

I know that, but she has completed her law degree...lots of my friends have just graduated uni with law degrees, and the fact that they will undergo further training and qualifications doesn't take away from the fact that they have completed their degree.

Anyway, I just came here to say that although I do really like Niomi, there is something about her that really bugs me. Does anyone else notice how dry her hair always looks? For some reason it looks really dead to me all of the time... :?

I saw Niomi on Tanya's blog for her birthday... There's something about Niomi that always seems to be like an annoying child on someone else's channel. Tanya's videos-voice is so annoying (I don't think is her real voice). And Niomi's voice on that video is as much as annoying as Tanya's! :o

( 6:30)

People says she is sweet. But I think she tries too hard to be sweet and 'perfect'. I think she has been with Marcus for a long time however I always see her like the last girl to get on the gleam circle. Like the new girl everyone loves cause she is so pretty and cute.

I don't think her work is that special. Only uploads one video per week. But she comes from a family with lot of money. She can afford doing little and living a luxury life.

It's like it's too difficult to hate her, cause she is literally sweet in every video or more so she maintains the nice girl image. But it is working out for her, maybe yt is just a hobby since she sure does seem to be filthy rich.. Lucky girl.

^I know what you mean.

Yesterday's video was boring. Why these girls insist to include their shirtless boyfriends on their videos? to get her boyfriend's subscribers?. I understand the guy is on the room. Can't she turn a bit and get him out of the image?. Is her video. A person behind is distracting unless you intentional mean to be on the video.

She still doesn't convince me she can publish a book. Sweet potatos + olive oil on the hoven?. Fruits + greens blended? Quinoa + a can of beans and chopped veggies?. People would pay for anything these days... :roll:

It's not like she shows Marcus shirtless everyday, it's not something to make an issue out of really. :)
Yeah I'd have to agree on the weird food combinations but hey you experiment and learn. Being on a plant based diet can be a bit tricky. She is only in her 20's, I am pretty sure she will come up with a nicer book since some youtubers are coming up with absolute shit to sell their fans for $$, for example PointlessBook by Alfie. :roll:

^Oh I haven't check Alfie's book. I only saw some bits of Tanya's book and at first I thought the phorography was so nice. But the content... :roll: pointeless. Zoella's book... pointless...

I don't know what my problem is with Niomi lately. I used to love her :) maybe was to see her too much on Marcus videos. Marcus completly ruined the image I had on Niomi. I started to like Niomi before Marcus. Never was interested on his videos. Then I subscribed to Marcus vlogs cause she was on his videos. And was like seeing two different girls. All those 'dare', 'pranks', 'challenges' videos with Marcus made me change my mind about her. I can't help but seein these two like Zalfie II :roll:

I understand that's the way to sell themselves to the 12-years olds. But she has potential to be taken seriously. I used to think she could become on someone like Ella Woodward (Deliciously Ella).

Is extrange in her latest video she said she doesn't want her videos are all about food. Is like these Gleam girls need to be open to everything for advertisers. Of course, she wouldn't have gone to Cannes with L'Oreal if her channel was all about food.

If she ever have a book I hope her recipes are something more special than Tanya's recipes :roll:

I think Niomi is the only youtuber i genuinely like and I'm pretty sure it is because she enjoys doing videos, as some of you said it's most likely a hobby for her.

I'd love it if she had a food blog, I think she does quite a bit of research for her diet and she could have some very interesting recipes. But this is gleam so the recipe book seems a lot more plausible than letting her do another blog (or change her current blog) and lose some precious money.
At least it would be 100x better Tanya's stolen recipes that contain loads of sugar and butter - yuck! :?


A bit unrelated but I absolutely hate the reflection of the light in her eyes in her videos! It distracts me waaay too much. Girl you gotta sort that out!!

Her 'What I ate' videos shows how much time she has to do nothing but buying expensive food, going to gym and 'cook'. She obviously does recipes for first time when filming. She seems really surprised of herself when something looks/tastes good. Ad as I can't stend her boyfriend I keep skipping her videos big time. Why do these girls need to include their boyfriends on their videos? oh right, cause they are youttubers and means more views.

I still think a cook book is going to happen but her recipes would be the same vegetarian/vegan recipes your can find on internet but swap a few ingredients.

Her channel is good for young rich girls. But not for grown ups who have to spend their money on rent/bills/transport/food.

I so agree, I used to like her at first but her life is way too easy. I mean it's not her fault she's rich but even I noticed she makes food for the first time, I thought she was a pro, she probably just googles new recipes everyday & orders/buys expensive food/ingredients as she seems to have all the time in the world to make it. Her life seems so easy. Make easy videos, cook, eat, gym, sleep, repeat & go on expensive vacations w/ Marcus. :roll:

Yeah I think her recipes secretly come from pinterest, they certainly aren't original. To non vegans the food she eats probably seems incredibly impressive, but none of it is difficult. You have to learn to get creative when following a plant based diet (if you don't want to just eat fries or pasta every night :rofl:) so it's all pretty standard for that type of eating.
I agree with you guys, Niomi is nice and sweet, but she seems perfectly content being a perfect little housewife to her boring boyfriend. She's just another Millie Mackintosh wealthy socialite who's only interested in working out and cooking.

Unsubscribed from Niomi's channel.
I can't stand another video of 'I eat better than you', 'Im richer than you', 'my life is better than yours', 'Im better than you'.
She is a sweet girl. But her life is not what we normal people have to deal with everyday. So I don't identify with her anymore.

Im 34 and probably that's why. I have a family to mantain and an office job. I can't afford half the food she eats or half the destinations she goes to.
I think her audience are girls in school thinking when they graduate life will be as easier as Niomi's.

And is not that Im jelous of her lifestyle. I like my life but her videos are becoming boring to me. Doesn't bring me anything to my life. As I said, I don't identify with her.

Gabz_is_shite wrote:Apologies for triple post - but just to update you on the comments on her mousse video. Someone said they saw this exact recipe three weeks ago on a blog called My Whole Food Life, including the same ingredients and quantities (and they knew what to to with the cacao nibs, unlike Niomi did). Niomi has responded to that person saying she doesn't know who that is and she made the recipe herself from scratch. Someone else added she just checked the recipe and it's a major coincidence that someone else made the exact same recipe a few weeks before her. Niomi has deleted that last comment but kept the others there - I'm wondering why....

I think the majority of minions just don't CARE that she hasn't invented the recipes, and that's so sad that a much smaller blogger and youtuber is not going to get credit. Niomi has already made more money from that recipe than My Whole Food Life will by having huge youtube ad revenue, and if it goes in her cook book that's even worse. Someone commented that intellectual property is no joke, especially when people's livelihoods are at stake, and I completely agree. I knew Niomi wasn't inventing any recipes, but I didn't think she would outright lie about it. She's has really gone down in my opinion, and is just going along with whatever lies she's told to. You would have thought Gleam would have learnt their lesson with fraud and lies - but if it makes money, they're just keeping on going.

I really like Niomi and enjoy watching her videos, but i agree with you all saying that the recipes aren't hers. I also agree with the fact that she/Gleam will never admit it. Rosanna Pansino (Nerdy Nummies) has had allegations against her saying that she doesn't invent most of her recipes and doesn't credit people for them, but that hasn't stopped her gaining 4 million subscribers. At the end of the day, most viewers don't care, Niomi provides nice easy to follow video recipes that are simple enough to recreate.

I think one of the reasons she doesn't have a cookbook out yet is that a lot of the ingredients she uses are bloody expensive. I mean, cacao powder, fresh cacao nibs, chia seeds, and the many other superfood supplements, are all expensive products that you can't (for the most part) pick up on supermarket shelves. I don't think her target audience (young women starting uni) would be able to afford this diet

I went to check out the blog and they've made the author aware of the situation. There's an argument going on in the comments section there: http://mywholefoodlife.com/2015/10/01/c ... in-mousse/

I love Niomi, but I wonder what she does all day besides occasionally filming videos? In her last video she says she has been wearing that make up look (a lot of make up) every day for the past few weeks... But why, if she is basically like a housewife? Does she have a job outside of yt?

What can ya do. Recipes are there to be adapted and Gleam are there to make talentless idiots millionaires by appearing to have a talent.
As Niomi copied the recipe so did that person at mywholelife...they probably weren't phase because they also copied someone else's recipe.

Can you imagine if this became bigger than it was and Niomi was caught for all her recipes? She'd really have no leg to stand on but something tells me Gleam pays for these recipes to be appropriated by their talent. Zoe was caught using someone else's recipe and I'm sure Tan isn't as inventive as she'd like people to believe.
