  3. Synne says

    loving the fact that you seem very real and down to earth! Feels like im watching a friend, not a vlogger xx

  4. Maggie P says

    My favorite part of this video was the editing! You're such a creative editor, and it's clear you put a ton of work into getting shots and putting them together. I'm always so impressed!

  5. Tricia G says

    Urg paying your dues is brutal honestly (but I needed to hear that everyone goes through it even when you feel like you're the gum on someone's shoe) but I'm really glad you were able to start fully working for yourself, that's awesome! But also fuck mercury.

  6. NinaGrrl says

    Hey Tara I'm a fellow Irish girl living in nyc, I'm really interested in getting into freelance photography. similarly I'm not a professional at it but vert familiar too it and was wondering if you would do be interested in a video or content piece on how to break into that industry here in nyc. you've obviously worked with impressive brands and i would love to hear your two cents on the topic 😊

  10. shauna139 says

    Part when you talked about your self taught photography career was really interesting

  11. Hotfries says

    Im a child at heart so obviously my favourite part of the vlog was that cute tooth brush omg if i ever own it i would go crazy snapping it everywhere haha. And i also love "your spot" it comes very comforting and pleasantly refreshing💖

  12. Marianne Grace says

    Love how you're not afraid to take risks!!!! Definitely need to follow your footsteps lol

  13. Izzy K says

    Loved when you drank iced milos around the museum mile area, looked so dreamy, and that Met museum shot gave me major gossip girl flashbacks!

  14. GillianOx1 says

    Love the video. That smoothie bowl looks divine and your little couch is adorable. Can't beat New York

  15. Eva in the City says

    This was so pleasing to the eye to watch, great editing as always! My favourite part to the vlog was the views of Manhattan on the boat when you were at the US Open event, just stunning 🙂

  16. Royal Dansk says

    Please try to use reusable bags when you go shopping.

  17. Lisa higgins says

    Food pervert lol!! Love your vlogs they are my fave! X

  31. Not Your Regular Jack says

    the 'food perverts' are shook.

  32. warhol cow says

    Why don't you use reusable bags? They are good for the environment, hold more than plastic bags, and are way easier when walking or going on the subway.

  33. MsBoxtet says

    Never been to the US, but you'd think Trader Joe's were giving it away. Sweet Jesus, the queues!!!

  34. chocoflipify says
