Guys it’s 12… It’s 11.43 am, I slept in for the first time in so long and it felt so good. I actually set my alarm for 8:00 am because my sisters were coming, I told you guys they were coming this weekend. But Alex messaged me and she’s really, really sick. She got sick last night with a fever. So, they’re all like “Let’s just reschedule it for another day.” So I went back to bed. Oh I needed that… That was so good. I was editing until 3:00 am… Oh I think I posted at like 1:32 am so I was up until 3:00 am. These ones are from my dad and Mariella. This is Elbow-san’s card. ♪♪♪ ♪♪♪ -Hello? -Hi! -So what are you guys gonna be doing? I think we’re just relaxing today. I’m trying to make your cinnamon bun but I’m not sur-do I put it in the oven or what? Well, they’re already cooked okay? -Yeah? -Yeah, you can just warm them up in the microwave just to get them warmed up.

And then I want to finish up shopping for Sharla’s gift so I can send it out on Monday, her Christmas gift. And.. yeah, I think those are my two main goals of the day.

So now today is just… very chill. ♪♪♪ -Your destination is on the right. -[Gasp] This Greek place looks so good. It’s so busy too. -Look at them!

But this looks like a cool area, we’re going to walk around here a bit more after, maybe get some Greek food for dinner. ♪♪♪ But I’m not good at-I’m not good at umm… Special effects so like you can’t give me anything too crazy. Actually I suck. So the easiest.. I’m new to it. -Don’t be so hard on yourself. Oookay. -I’m just experimenting [laughs] -I have a liquid latex. Take a light brown pencil and follow through. -Yeah.

Not sure you guys wanna share it. -You have to show it somewhere. -Yeah, it’s just fun for me. -Well, you do this often? Yeah, I… yeah, sort of. I’ve tried-I tried this Halloween to create some things. -Okay. But, I had issues with the nose wax, sealing it. -Ahh. -I think when it… like it moves around a bit if it’s not sealed properly. How did you-how did you apply it? Perhaps I can give you some tips. -I used some Vaseline to help…Is that, is that it? -Ooh… -Joyce wasn’t in my life at this time [laughs]. -Now she is and never [inaudible]. -Okay… What you do is… One more question. What’s the best food…restaurant in this area to check out? It’s our first time in this area. -What do you feel like? -Greek food I guess? Cause we’re in Greek town. -That’s a good choice.

About the author


  1. Tay! You should also try eating at Christina's at the Danforth! My family took me there when i was visiting from Cyprus (i'm a Cypriot-Canadian) and the food was literally like all the food i get back home too! Hope you had a lovely birthday!!

  2. Tay, do you take off all your jewelry when u bath? I can’t imagine having to fiddle with clasps, on n off, and on n off, when time is always of the essence.

  3. Your birthday looked so full of love and fun ! I recommend you hit up Yorkville for some shopping if you haven't already. Also you and Valeria Lipovetsky should definitely collab for a video 🙏🏻

  4. OMG that breakfast/lunch seemed so yummy 😋😋😋
    And the dinner!! I love Greek food…actually I like all the food 🤣

  5. Lol I just drove to a Greek Orthodox Church for the Xmas bake sale yesterday. Everyone’s all dressed for church and here I am “don’t mind me, I’m just here for Greek baked goods” 😊

  6. So happy you had a wonderful birthday. Congratulation on the marriage too. Love the new videos in Canada. Never been to that part, so it is nice to see someplace different. Keep up the good work and stay happy.

  7. Hyeee Taylor I'm your biggest craziest fan from Pakistan I'm watching your videos since you looked like a Barbie doll 😅 I'm in Love with you deeply please visit Pakistan 😍 I Love you xoxoxo ❤️❤️❤️ love JIYA from Pakistan💕

  8. Ah! I remember going to R. Hiscott years ago when I wanted to paint my body purple for a Twilight Sparkle cosplay haha. They recommended me Ben Nye body paint. They're very knowledgeable, haha.

  9. I agree about being around nice pleasant people. I live in the bottom of South Carolina up where people are not pleasant at all. They claim that they are O Southern hospitality no. So I just took a trip home to Ohio and people were so much nicer there. I was like oh my gosh literally felt like relaxed and everything for the 1st time in years

  10. I love Cartier, their earring collections and purses are adorable. I couldn't thank my Fiance enough if he bought me those earrings. that's our bonus check.

  11. Happy birthday Taylor! After so many years following your channel, I am so happy that you are now at the comfortable stage about yourself and everything you have! It's been a long journey. I wish you all the best for the up coming year 2019 and I hope you will hit 1m subscribers by the end of 2018!

  15. I really thankful to u tylor for grt effort to make new videos everyday for us God will give u strength nd power to win our hearts like this love ya girl😘

  16. Why are you so nice and I wanna be your best friend?!?!? Woah, I sound like a creep lol.. Honestly tho, you're so adorable! I love your family, it makes my heart melt! Are you become be Lady Santa with that stage makeup? I hope so and I hope you'll share the tips that lovely woman gave you about the nose techniqueeee! (the nose wax saga is one of my fave on your channel 😉 ) Side note: I LOVE Tom's accent! and missing baby Rosie all day everyday always <3 <3 <3

  17. I just got offered a full-time job in Japan and I'm really struggling with the idea of leaving my family and my long-term boyfriend. I'm wondering how you were able to deal with being away from your family for things like birthdays and kind of just in general. I know you had elbow-san so it's a bit different but I just worry because I'll be on my own indefinitely. I would really appreciate any advice! <3

  18. 1. Is that a new Rosie sweater?! 😍
    2. You're channel won't be Taylor R anymore, will it be Taylor E (elbow-San)
    3. Taylor please try food from my country, El Salvador. There is a really great restaurant I went to this weekend called Amanacer Salvadoreno at 4000 steeles Ave suite 11 in Woodbridge Ontario and the specialty plate/dish is called a pupusa but you must try it with the salsa on top and the cold slaw!! And a drink called jarito, I know you'll love it!

  19. Yaaaas! You went to Messini's! When you first showed it, I was hoping you would go there. Such great Greek food. Also, lmk if elbow-San wants some recommendations for traditional Chinese restaurants in Toronto. We're self proclaimed foodies, esp with Chinese food.

  20. Asain guy always buys a nice gift for them and bought Condo for the girl that why girls like to stay with them. Her bf purchased the condo for them I can tell she didn't spend any of money for the apartment so this is her bf condo, not her condo not her home.

  21. I'm always so close to where you are! Everytime I watch your vlogs I end up being in the same area the day before and probably just miss you! I was just as messini's yesterday as well aha 😛
    Also love your vlogs as always and happy belated birthday! <33

    Love your long time Torontonian follower 😊💕

  22. That lady in the store was so nice and helpful! The greek restaurant looked amazing, the food must have been yummy! Happy birthday Taylor 🙂

  23. Hey Tay Happy Belated Birthday! I felt like even though this is a great video and you are amazing you seemed a little sad underneath it all. I just turned 30 a few months ago too and it was rough lol It's like a huge reality slap lol Hope you're all good 🙂 <3

  24. Seeing what you guys ate at that restaurant makes me realise that no matter what, to try a country's true cuisine you have to visit it. That looked like a decent take at greek food but it wasn't 100% authentic, true greek food unfortunately. I'm saying this because I am greek myself. I'm glad you liked it though 🙂
    Oh and Taylor, the restaurant is called "Messini", not "Messini's". Messini is a small town in Greece. It's not a name ^^

  25. OMG I love Messini's! I've been going for years and have become friends with the owner. Their food is always fresh and amazing- next time try the surf and turk platter. I'm sure you'll love it xoxo

  26. I went to Hiscott Beauty last summer when I visited Toronto, the woman that works there is the sweetest! Wtv questions you have on makeup, she will try to help you. She even suggested us where to go and what to do in the area. She's so nice! Love your videos Taylor 🙂

  27. Seriously. You look younger than me. And I'm 19. Okay I am exaggerting, but if i wouldnt know that ur 30 i would guess 22. And im completely honest.

  28. Recently found you, love your vlogs!! You look so cute at the end with your hair off of your face. Great party with the fam!

  29. Happy Birthday sweet beautiful lady Your super down to 🌍 earth .love watching you even got my mom in Toronto started to watch you

  30. Tom has the best taste. I’m so happy that you and Tom are at a point in your careers that you can afford to have a home in Canada and one in Hong Kong! That seriously is freaking awesome! But you both are very intelligent, busy, outgoing & lovely people! I hope you enjoyed your time at home seeing your family. I bet your apartment in Toronto is going to be the #1 place for everyone to stay when you’re not there! LOLLLL

  31. You are the first you tuber that has 30 and looks 30 and I love it! Other are 20 years old looking 30…
