From Maya Angelou’s “Phenomenal Woman: Four Poems Celebrating Women”

Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
But when I start to tell them,
They think I’m telling lies.
I say,
It’s in the reach of my arms
The span of my hips,
The stride of my step,
The curl of my lips.
I’m a woman
Phenomenally.
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

"A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous."

— Coco Chanel

Newly Formed Love…

I have always been someone who is attracted to dark colors (I love black, gray and army green) and I’ve promised myself that I’d break the habit of mainly buying those colors before I graduate. Now the time has come. I have now developed a new love for Kate Spade New York and the colors mint green and geranium!imageimage

Kristen Lam of kristenglam ^.^

Kristen Lam, 22, is a young blogger from Queens, New York who has done quite a bit since starting her blog kristenglam.

Before starting kristenglam, Lam was just an employee at Bollare, a fashion lifestyle public relations firm. She was already managing her client’s blogs and social media outlets when it was recommended that she start a blog of her own. Together with a co-worker, they started their own respective blogs, each helping the other take photos. “I wouldn’t keep up with it without him,” said Lam. At first the blog was something she did for fun but when clients and other people from magazines started recognizing her, that’s when she thought she should take it a little more seriously.

 Since starting her blog, opportunities have come forth giving Lam some interesting life experiences. Lam has been featured on the Teen Vogue website three times. The first experience was a bedroom tour and the other two were beauty features. When asked about the experience, Lam stated that she “wasn’t used to wearing that much make-up.” Other opportunities included developing authentic friendships and meeting people from around the nation. In the beginning she able to work with the shoe brand Sam Edelman.

When she isn’t working or blogging, Lam enjoys watching sports, taking road trips, walking around, and having “chill days”.  She’s also a trendy bargain hunter, her favorite places to shop being H&M and Forever21. She also enjoys thrifting. When looking for pieces, Lam looks for something that has interesting patterns and fits well, as opposed to when she used to buy oversized sweaters when younger.

“Don’t take it too seriously…have fun with it,” said Lam on her advice to give people who want to be in her shoes.
