Let’s hear Irene Xiao C share her journey!
Adele: Hi Irene
Irene: Hello, everyone, Adele listeners, well, my name is Irene and there may be some people who hear my name as xiao C. Then I myself am a youtuber tiktoker beauty blogger, Xiaohongshu blogger. In short, you can see me creating content about beauty on any platform. Yes, that’s it, I’m happy to talk to you.
Adele: I really want to ask you how did you get into this industry in the first place, that is, all the Youtube platforms, Instagram, etc. Why did you choose to do this piece of beauty?
Irene: In 2017, I think it was. And that time I actually saw from ig story above that the company is my former company to recruit new people again, and then I thought eh send my own resume, and then after passing it went to audition this way. And then say really I uh transition to do more vertical category of beauty blogger, youtuber. And then that was actually my last semester in college, which was my last semester at intern, and I was also facing a turning point where I thought I might have to go to an office job after graduation, or that I was going to do youtuber full-time. So it was actually a big internal struggle, and then the industry didn’t want to say, “Well, it’s not a great beauty, and then I won’t be able to shoot dance ah, drag ah those, I want to say find a field that I’m good at this way. That’s why at that time I really like to see some Taiwanese beauty bloggers this way, is to say that eh if makeup makeup words, I’m a little handicapped, may not be too good is to say that eh skin care words actually I’m quite interested, and then began to study, and then to now this way.
Adele: I run an influencer company, so I know that many influencers have a lot of different experiences behind some of the hardships. Because of this, you will inevitably encounter different comments, so of course there are good and bad comments, how do you usually face these comments?
Irene: I’m glad I haven’t encountered too many black fans or negative comments in my career over the years, so thank you all for your kindness. ok, then I think in fact for public figures, there are comments, controversial words, no matter how good it is to talk, in fact, is also equivalent to someone is concerned about you, it is not necessarily a bad thing ah. Of course, I think constructive comments can prompt you to be more cautious about your actions, words and behavior, including content. As for the unconstructive kind of comments, it is really as entertainment and jokes in watching, this way. Well not too sad, also not too mind this way it.
Adele: That really is, I see you in IG you got proposed, congratulations. You are going to become a wife, what is your life?
Irene: The first thing to say is that you haven’t really felt much of a change, because uh to be honest we’ve been together for many years, and then the relationship is more stable, because we’ve always lived together, I think it’s probably more of a psychological thing.
I was thinking the other day when I was opening up, who knew that I wouldn’t be able to get a red envelope this New Year’s Eve, twenty-five years old. Then I have to go to a friend’s house this New Year’s words, to stuff his family’s elders to give red packets. Then he said to him aunty I can’t take the red packet, I’m already married.
Adele: You did you sign? Or just proposing?Not yet is not yet a proposal can take the red packet. The last year. Really really really really, this year is still available.
Irene: Good, then I can still get away with a little bit more.
Adele: I think it’s better that you get married, you go to register, you are a legal couple then you have to give la la.
Irene: Ah yes yes yes, there are some different different sayings.
Adele: Some people say eh you have proposed to give angapu, so that that one is certainly is want angpau from you la.
Irene: Not how long has it been going, it has been more than five years, then to count to two zero two three words is into the sixth year this way wow wow wow wow so very good eh actually I think it is also considered relatively early marriage it.
Adele: Is your boyfriend the same age as you?
Irene: He is up to nine years older.
Adele: Have you ever thought about how many baby you want to arrange to have, or just plan to take your time, on the possibility of getting married first and then he has him this way have any idea?
Irene: In fact, the age of twenty-four, twenty-five marriage is the most it for me, and then probably not on. And then it should be twenty-seven, twenty-eight well, I still a little can not accept, you know what these.
Adele: Right, right, I think two seven, two eight is very good, you see what you just said, and then this year on this year married right should be right, and then this year married on twenty-five. Then on two six, two seven to play, to go around the world, so that the second year began to try, and then pregnant. But It’s ah, girls are very like this to speak ah, many mothers are found in the end in fact the more the harder you get.
Irene: It is difficult to do, I think it is better to let nature take its course. The plan cannot catch up with the change. The right, is to believe that every couple must have emotional bonding ah, or learn from each other this way. You encounter. If you want to talk about bonding, there should be basically no more, because it has been worn flat, very smooth. After all, we’ve been together for more than five years, and basically we both have personalities that are more on top of things than people. So we are accustomed to say that things are spread out to speak, and will not say as if beating around the bush this way ah, I need you to guess what I think in my heart this way la, on what you want not what and what is not happy, we will be directly is to speak out. So basically there is no kind of cold war ah more than half a day of the kind of. On everyone may speak open well after, then c brother, sorry ah and then go to please eat. Good to eat. Yes, and then make amends, this way on OK. well, if it is really serious, then probably buy a bag this way. But you you will not feel because of the age of small, to big you nine years well, it is possible that he he will be.It is more mature. I don’t understand. I’ll ask you if it’s because of this factor, I think it’s on all aspects of words, our two people’s outlook or life philosophy, in fact, are quite compatible with this look.
Adele: What kind of expectations do you think you have in your life? My own hope for career is that I can expand my team a little more in 2023 and find more talent to help me do more content together, and then make the whole carry even better.
Adele: A lot of times when it comes to wedding planning, I think the most important thing is really you must enjoy the moment. I hear a lot of people who are planning a wedding. Well quarrel is right, but I think I do not know eh, I may be very young at that time, because I and my boyfriend is my husband and boyfriend, I was with his boyfriend at the time I was with him eight months he proposed, and then one more nine months we will get married. Just from the time I just got together with him to our wedding, oh, we were only together less than two years, you know? So oh that time when we were preparing for the wedding is really super to almost all weddings are not. Understand it. At the end if I have a sentence I can speak to myself, as if I were back five or six years ago, I will speak to myself to relax a little bit, because really the wedding is only that day, but marriage is really a lifetime.
Adele: I really, really finally understand, like you look at you like this, you speak, you are spraying your in this year, you must also have a picture. And you are a beauty blogger, you must have your idea of this, do you have a favorite way to look for a type of wedding dress?
Irene: Not yet. Eh, every look I feel is so beautiful.
Adele: You are more just the easygoing kind of bride right?
Irene: I don’t think I am. Just say I have not really gone survey with say eh I want what this look if really to that decision time is oh I all want to.
Adele: You talk a lot is your love history ah, with of course you on the preparation of the wedding will That you think if today some in listening to this video people, you have what the best advice to share with everyone called well.
Irene: The most important thing for two people to do together is to be comfortable, right, and to be more equal in the status of love. Of course, we still encourage girls to have their own financial independence. When you are financially independent and independent of thought, many things can be judged by yourself. Maybe if he really said that you are really not so happy with the other party, then you also have the ability to leave at any time, this way you do not have to worry that eh I may leave him, I can not do well after this ah, I can not be independent ah. Because only two independent thinkers, when they come together, they can better plan a future for everyone, right? Everyone should be brave enough to pursue what they want to do. For some people, you may not like the job you’re doing, but you’ll feel like saying oh. I’ve been doing it for many years, and I’m lazy to change jobs, so if you keep living like this, it may provide you with temporary stability and stability, but I think it must not be a long-term, a good cycle. So if you are really not very satisfied with your current situation, then I would suggest that in this new year is a little brave, a little bold to try to find their own interest in the field of ah, maybe you can enroll in a hobby class, or the Internet to learn a skill ah and so on, this way will be for your future whether in your own career ah or to help your own I’d like to thank Irene for talking to me today.
Adele: So thank you Irene for spending time with us today on this podcast and chatting with you all, if you like this podcast then remember to share it and remember to check Irene out.
