Kim Kardashian’s girls North West gets in trouble for going live on TikTok and giving tour of house

Voice Of EU

Kim Kardashian‘s eight-year-old daughter North West received a telling off on Sunday after she gave a live tour of their house without permission. 

The pair launched a TikTok account just over two weeks ago and in that short time the reality star and the eldest of her four children, have garnered more than 2.1 million followers and counting.

Yet Kim was left in shock when she discovered that North had accessed the video making app to give fans a tour of their plush Southern California home before showing Kim laying in bed.

North’s mischievous doings featured a tour of the family’s posh Hidden Hills mansion that’s decked out in Christmas decorations.

Among the first places she roams into in the clip appears to be her own bedroom, which featured an all-pink theme in stark contrast to the minimalist theme of the rest of the home.  

She shows off an ornament described as a ‘gingerbread thing’ before bounding out to see another room.

While narrating her walk, and chatting to other children at the house, including her brothers and sister, North announces ‘lets go downstairs we have rented this Sing thing,’ in a reference to decorations and arts and crafts all related to the new animated sequel film, Sing 2.

As North makes her way down the stairs she asks her playmates to ‘say yes’ if they want her to show off the Sing 2 decors that has been set up in the bottom floor and backyard of their mansion. 

They even do a countdown, ‘3, 2, and 1,’ before unveiling the beginnings of the Sing decor.

The kids then all take turns showcasing the various cutouts and blowup characters from the musical comedy film that premiered in Los Angles the very same day, but is slated to drop in theaters across the country on December 22.

‘So we still got some Sing things,’ she says, before one young boy runs up to the camera and declares, ‘North is live. North is live. North your live. No, not fair, TikTok live,’ he yells in a frantic pace and tone, all while smiling. He adds, ‘Not allowed to be live,’ in the remaining few seconds of the clip.

Following the house tour,  North followed up with a quick 11 second clip where she confessed to be going live on TikTok to her mother.  

‘Mom, I’m live,’ she tells her mom with mischievous laughs while walking with the camera in a bedroom, seemingly her mother’s.

The Skims founder can be heard responding to her daughter: ‘No stop, you know you’re not allowed too.’  

Family affair: North's siblings are mulling about as she moves her tour back inside

Sensing she may have crossed the line with her mother, North shoots back, ‘Okay bye,’ and signs off of the live feed, but not before Kim K is heard saying, ‘Is she really going live?’ to an unknown female voice that answers, ‘I don’t know. 

When shared on the Kardashian News page, the clip was captioned: ‘North gets in trouble for going live.

‘North went live on Tiktok and Kim had no idea. And this was after she gave a full house tour. I hope Kim doesn’t mind this because I have never seen her more relatable than this! I feel like we are getting to see the Kardashians from a new lens and I think it will only impact them positively. As long as North doesn’t expose any family secrets.’

What you need to know about having a home swimming pool

Voice Of EU

Published

on

This summer, it’s not just sales of rosé wine and ice cream that have rocketed during the heatwave. Interest in swimming pools has also surged.

‘This sweltering summer has undoubtedly inspired people to install swimming pools,’ says Sallie Leslie-Golding of the Swimming Pool and Allied Trade Association (SPATA). 

‘There are now 270,000 in-ground pools in the UK, with about 65 per cent of them in the southern half of the country.’

There is something incredibly glamorous about a Hockney-blue pool. But how does the reality match up to the imagery?

Refreshing: Church House in Potterne, Wiltshire, is on sale for £1.95m. Interest in swimming pools has surged with the hot weather

‘It’s been wonderful to be able to take a swim at the end of a long day,’ says Felicity Cooper, 55, who in 2006 installed a 12m x 6m pool outside her country house in Potterne, near Devizes, Wiltshire. 

‘It has also been great for the children, Lily and Ryan, who learnt to swim here.’

Felicity stresses the importance of finding the right setting for a new pool. 

She ensured hers was west-facing to catch the evening sun; then she went to the trouble of digging out a mini-amphitheatre so that the displaced earth formed a windbreak around the pool itself.

‘The pool is the optimum distance from the house, being not so near that it detracts from the garden and not so far away that anyone in trouble would not be heard by those inside.

‘It is far from trees so few leaves blow into the water and, with the children in mind, it has a top quality safety cover. Felicity’s six-bedroom Jacobean stone house standing in 1.7 acres is for sale for £1.95 million.

Opinions vary as to whether an outdoor pool helps or hinders a house sale. Some think that the hassle of maintenance may be off-putting to buyers. However, the property buying agent, Jonathan Harington, disagrees.

‘I have had many clients come to me with a pool on their wishlist of luxuries,’ he says. ‘But I have never had anyone say they wouldn’t buy a house because of the pool. If they felt strongly they could easily fill it in anyway.’

Yet owning a swimming pool is an expensive hobby. An above-ground pool — like a giant paddling pool — costs from £1,500 to £15,000. These pools may not quite cut it in terms of glamour, but their lower water capacity means maintenance costs are more reasonable.

For those looking at a more substantial in-ground pool, one with a liner finish of PVC will cost about £75,000. A concrete pool, finished with mosaic tiles, marbled plaster or paint will be about £125,000.

Larger projects can easily cost hundreds of thousands of pounds. 

You may opt for an infinity pool — a pool designed with an edge that gives the illusion that the water is overflowing. 

Those who want to improve their fitness may have a counter current device installed; the equivalent of swimming on a treadmill.

Many pool owners are interested in sustainability and heating the pool with solar panels is popular, as are covers that help heat retention.

Maintaining an outdoor swimming pool is expensive. The cost of heating and chemicals has increased so buyers should budget for at least £8 to £10 a day, dependent on the weather, according to SPATA.

Anyone fancying a workout in their own home may be interested in Ivy Cottage, Grendon, Northamptonshire.

Outside, the four-bedroom cottage is a 10m x 5m pool neatly positioned in the north-west corner to catch the sun.

‘After swimming in the pool, you could go running, riding or cycling on the countless trails nearby,’ says Ian Denton, of Jackson Stops. ‘It’s a lifestyle amenity in your own garden.’ Ivy Cottage is for sale for £825,000.

Houseboats are often perceived as a cheaper alternative to owning a property on land.

But they come with their own challenges and plenty of hands-on maintenance. And of course, there is the regular job of emptying your toilet.

You’ll either have to continuously cruise or pay for a residential mooring if you live on the boat full-time.

We take a look inside six different type of houseboats that are currently for sale and ask which one would you buy - ranging from one costing just shy of £30,000 (pictured - scroll down for more details) to one that costs £2.5m

Houseboats come in various shapes and sizes, including narrowboats – typically 6ft 10 in wide and up to 72 long – and Dutch barges, which are former commercial vessels that can be up to 120ft in length and 20ft wide.

They also come with various price tags and so can accommodate all types of different budgets.

Below, we take a look at six various types, ranging in price from just shy of £30,000 and a more eye-watering £2.5milion.

‘With luxurious amenities and spacious living areas, houseboats are a popular choice particularly in and around London.’
