    It's the #eternalmood!



    Yeah, you know what? I feel the same way, and I didn't expect to when they first revealed him (Joe WHO?) as the reason why she disappeared into London. The longer he toughs it out without any sign of weirdness or problematic-nass or fame thirstiness the more he seems like the right choice on her part. Okay, skip this if you have no actual interest in Joe (understandable!), but here's a wee bit of a deeper dive . . . His whole life went under the kaylor/swiftie microscope, and they uncovered two previous (entirely normal) relationships, one with a college ex-gf, and one where he apparently lived with a tv presenter ex-gf post-college for a ye...

    Right? And when people say "live each day like it's your last' or when folks posit hypotheticals about 'what would you do if you knew you only had a year to live'...

    Okay, time for the TayJoe post!
























    Yeah, I'm 70/30 on them having been engaged since at least December. They were both in London for her birthday on 12/13, the engagement rumors hit the tabs that same week, and then a week later they brought their fams together for Xmas for the first time. And well, you know. A castle. In Ireland. Rented for 2 wks at $40k per week. That would be the PERFECT place and time for the Alwyns and Swifts to get their secret engagement celebration on. Seems kinda elaborate and $$$$ if it was just a random holiday, but then again who knows.

    And of course, there are really good reasons to take this idea seriously. This is by far Taylor's longest relationship, Joe seems like a pretty good bet for something long term and steady (he's not some wild child stumbling out of clubs or pissing off paps, or a loose cannon on social media. He's like, entirely unproblematic so far), he's the first guy she's gotten domestic with (she never moved in with Coleslaw Hoover), their families seem to be completely on board, and! Taylor is turning 30 this year so . . . she's probably thinking about kids and the whole caboodle. Not saying that they are DEFINITELY engaged but it would not be stupid to suspect that they might be.

    But finding the right time to announce is probably tricky? Joe's obligated to do the full award show circuit because The Favourite racked up so many noms (and to a lesser extent, MQOSs also got nommed here and there) and they probably don't want a) for him to be harassed on the red carpet since he has to do so many of those right now and it's his very first awards season ever or b) the hullabaloo over an engagement to overshadow The Favourite's awards campaign in general. Also, there's the pop star aspect of it . . . Taylor will want to announce a life event in an uncrowded field, but there's been a lot of that kind of thing happening. Nick Jonas and Priyanka, Meghan Trainor and the Spy Kid, Miley and Liam, Lady Gaga (although I think that's already over?), Miranda Lambert, Ellie Golding, Justin Bieber, Ed and Cherry, Karlie of course, and then KATY FUCKING PERRY goes and gets engaged as well, so Taylor will probably want to put some space there in between herself and all of those others.



    * If this is am actual thing! which it might not be!











    What we do know is that we've had so many more sightings and appearances of T&J since Rep tour ended and Harriet filming wrapped that it looks like they are still very solid as a couple, and consciously becoming more comfortable being public. I can't even list everything since the last time I updated, so here's just a summary . . . (I'll intersperse kaylor responses where I have them**):



    ** when I've got screenshots of k'lor stuff, it's because I've stolen them from kaylorfails on tumblr, she's the greatest archive of kerrazy online




    So! I last updated in November, where Taylor had been seen going to a few of Joe's movie screenings and premiere after parties. Basically, if Joe had a big event this past fall and winter, Taylor sneaked into it on the quiet, and I don't think she missed any that I can recall?



    Honestly, for the past three months they don't appear to have spent any real time apart except for when Joe has had to jet to NYC (promo, Fashion Week) :









    (are yellow leather jackets a thing? Ugh I don't think I want them to be)




    or Paris (Fashion Week):










    . . . while Taylor had Cats responsibilities in London.

    A post shared by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on










    They spent Thanksgiving together in the States (they were spotted hiking that weekend, but we didn't get pics) and were in NYC for the beginning of December.


    Joe was doing promo in NYC that first week of December and seen going in and out of Taylor's Tribeca apt, but! the ks were convinced he was just 'pretending' to stay at her place:










    The kween's response came swiftly:





    (the kween keeps conveniently forgetting that Tay went to TWO of Joe's movie premiere after parties in LA in November but okay.)




    But no! She spoke too soon, because Taylor (and Joe) showed up to Jack Antonoff's Ally Coalition to support LGBT youth event that week:














    She was the surprise guest and sang Delicate with Hayley Kiyoko.


    On one hand this was VERY EXCITING for the ks because TAYLOR CAME OUT AS (an) LGBTQ (ally)!!!!!!

    But on the other hand it was not as exciting because 1) she was wearing her J necklace 2) Joe was actually there with her, and they came back to her place holding hands:











    . . . and c) she forgot to wear pants.









    I might have been the only one worried about that, though. DECEMBER! IN NEW YORK CITY!!! PUT ON SOME FUCKING PANTS. BEEKSUS.



    But it was ALL OKAY according to the kween:






    Apparently she chooses to navigate coming out (as a gold star lesbian) with her boyfriend by her side!









    Anyhoo! Then they went back to London, which is where they were (together) for her birthday, but we got no sightings. Y'all already know what happened the week after (CASTLE OF SECRET ENGAGEMENTS IN IRELAND) and then! back to NYC in time for New Year's Eve! . . . and they brought a bunch of Joe's friends and his brother with them.
















    How do we feel about Tay's hat, hmmm?


    According to Swifties, they were walking in the West Village, and supposedly they walked over to Emma Stone's apt.


    They all went out again for dinner that night:











    Patrick really does look like a lankier BabyJoe, right?



    Then Swifties started to get excited when these showed up the next day on 12/31:











    And yes, they were for a legitimate NYE party! Not just some weird balloon popping fetish but an actual party! And Taylor actually posted pics from it! Taylor and Joe hadn't shared any pics from their previous two NYE parties, so this was seen as something special.



    It was a costume party with a 'chidhood heroes theme' and you can flip through Tay's pics here:











    Yes, Ryan Reynolds and Blake were there.


    Fom a swiftie:






    Yeah, I could never have done that much detective work. This is the most important of the pics, though:









    Because Taylor in a loooong red wig is weirdly so good.



    BabyTay is pleased with this whole concept:








    So! they are partying it up with a mix of his friends and her friends and their friends which really just lends more credence to the engagement idea, right? Perhaps they celebrated their engagement with their families at Christmas, and then celebrated again with their friends at NYE and that's why it was so important to fly their London peeps to NYC for this partick party?










    Looks like people were careful not to post Joe and Tay together, but you can just see the profile and back of Joe in his Zorro costume in this background:












    Right after the party, Ryan followed Joe:








    The ks didn't like that. They didn't like ANY of this. But! The kween had a GREAT explanation for why Karlie*** wasn't at Tay's NYE party (AGAIN . . . 'cause they've NEVER spent NYE with each other):



    *** Karlie and Josh actually went on their delayed honeymoon to South Africa so they weren't even in the country.









    Okay!












    Allrighty, that brings us to the next very exciting thing . . . Taylor's Golden Globes surprise!
















    I'm looooving this custom Atelier Versace because it makes her look about twenty feet tall and like a nearly naked mermaid widow.













    That's a dress you could be BURIED in, ya know? It's just that good. The makeup, the jewelry, it was all working for her.
















    She didn't walk the red carpet before the show, but she did hit the after parties, and there were lots of sightings and blurry pics:



















    Anyway, even though Joe and Taylor did NOT walk the carpet together, fans can fix it:











    Taylor and Joe returned to London after the GGs, which is where we got The Spaniard (a very old inn/pub/restaurant) date night sighting on the Friday before the BAFTAS:









    The next day, she and Joe were spotted again, shopping on Portabello Rd. In Notting Hill portobello Road we spotted her. We knew it was her and a guy came up to us quietly who we assumed was their security and said to please not bother them so we respected that and left them to it as they’re just like us only 300x as famous — Perry O'Bree (@PerryO...

    Waiting on a call from our realtor so I don't know how far I can get with an update tonight, so just gonna call this Part 1. I want to cover the following areas: real estate, T+J=4EVA, Kaaaaaaylooooors, and then maybe just a misc post for rando things.



    Starting with the UK Barbie Dream Houses, why not.



    The paps followed either Tay or Joe home to their newest London rental (I think it's their third rental house in two years?) soon after Taylor started rehearsing with the Cats cast a few months ago and snapped some extremely boring pics of a couple of Taylor's bodyguards getting her mail. The house is big, historic, located about 8 mins from Joe's parents, and has been rented by celebs before Johnny Depp once interviewed for a mag profile there and sounded absolutely NUTSO and high as a kite.



    https://www.rollingstone.com/movies/...y-depp-666010/








    I don't have any compunction about posting deets because well, it's already been all over several blogs and the paps have already found it anyway (and it's not like any of Tay's other homes are secret). So here ya go:
















    It's on the market for 10 millions pounds and used to belong to a Nobel Prize winning Nazi-hater:


    https://www.hamhigh.co.uk/property/a...nner-1-5153899




    Staff quarters is obviously a key thing for Taylor, but I do wonder what kinds of 'bathroom moods' we are talking about here? I don't think I have five different 'bathroom moods', personally, but maybe it's different for rich people.



    There's a lot of backyard space for London, right?:






    I can totally imagine Idris Elba, Judi Dench, and Rebel Wilson at this table for a Cats cast dinner: ...

    Nina's new dude GM actually IS a sccreenwriter/director! Ooops, mea culpa. He was at the Mammoth Film Fest yesterday b/c he had a short film premiering there: I thought maybe IMDB didn't list short films, but I just checked ONB and the short film he wrote and directed which premiered at the Vancouver Film Festival a couple of weeks ago is listed, so I don't know what is up with that. Wouldn't it be hilars if Grant and ONB became short film festival circuit buddies? Ha. Nina stayed in LA . . . to present at the Grammys (which is a pretty good excuse really): I do not love this. It's Dior, but really boring? Man, if I had Nina's amazing coloring, I'd never wear nude or beige or anything blah ever ever. Nothing really works here for me.

    To make up for that terrible pic the outlets are using to announce the SEKRIT MARRIEDS news, here are some better ones of Paul and Ines:

















    There's not a lot out there about her, but I did see this on FF:






    Health coach works well for Paul's vegan lifestyle, I assume! And because she's a civilian, they will probs stay married forever and ever. It increases their chances by like a billion.



    So . . . congrats! Y'all are cute, and this whole thing is perfectly fine and acceptable.










    Before all of this news, the Dobsley fans were having a bit of a renaissance, with hopes a'stirring after several Nina/Paul interactions lately.


    A few weeks ago, Paul watched Nina shoot Fam and totally surprised her onset during the curtain call:










    I mean, how ADORABLE was that? She literally screamed when she saw him. And the hug! Dobsely hopes were SOARING.




    And Nina said this in an interview recently:











    Which is saying something considering she goes on vaca with Trevino and Kayla Ewell, like, all the time.




    And you can see the Dobsely influence on her insta as well:



















    All of this Dobseyness culminated in late Jan, when Paul actually posted from inside Nina's house:





    So yes! There were some peeps (lightly) mourning when E! announced Paul and neens were both otherwise taken.
