Kim - Stanford

I'm a teenybopper at heart. I can't get enough of Disney Channel Original Movies, cheesy romantic comedies, Jason Segel, anything neon or zebra print, and hair flair. Amanda Bynes and I would totally be best friends if we met. I plan to move to New York City after graduation in June 2010 and pursue a career in magazine journalism and media entertainment.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Home is Where the Art Is

Do-It-Yourself Tuesdays: Paint-splatter Boyfriend Trousers

When I need some serious design inspiration, I usually look to designers and runway trends. I get a sense of accomplishment after I imitate something I can’t afford and it comes out looking runway worthy itself.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Cheap and Chic Wall Art

’ve finally moved into my new apartment in NYC which is now filled with issues of Elle Décor and House Beautiful. The furniture is moved in (…and up 5 flights of stairs) and my apartment is finally coming together. However, I could not help but feel depressed when I looked at my bare, lonely, and artless walls.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Dress Form Display Piece

I’m officially a college graduate and am joining the masses of recent grads sobbing audibly as they scroll through their Facebook photos from the past 4 years moving to a new city and a new life. As I pack up my boxes once again, I’ve realized that my college dorm décor may not exactly suit for the real world.

Do It Yourself Tuesdays: Custom Magazine Ad Envelopes

Technology is amazing, we can all attest to that (especially if you’re reading this online on the best website ever. I <3 the Internet.) But technology, has also made things, like the way in which we communicate, a lot less personal.

Senior Files: I’m Graduating as a Single Lady

In high school I was a boyfriend kind of girl. I was never single for long, but instead jumped from guy to guy. I went through every relationship possible. I was in love, I was out of love, I was in lust, I was in good relationships and in not so good relationships. I dated guys that treated me like I was everything, and guys that treated me like I was nothing.

Senior Files: Life Outside the College Dorm

Today is May 5th. Many of you are wearing sombreros and chugging tequila graduate in a few weeks, or even days. (Did I just freak you out!?)

Dealing with a Friend in an Unhealthy Relationship

One of the hardest parts of being a friend to someone is actually being a friend to someone. It’s not like when we were little we were taught how to be a friend outside the realms of “sharing is caring.” There are certain sticky situations, like dealing with a friend in a bad or abusive relationship, where no how-to guide can instruct us how to be a true friend.

Senior Files: Creating the Perfect Work Wardrobe

Graduation is fast approaching and soon we college girls will have to swap our flip flops and sweats for pumps and two-piece suits.

Senior Files: Change, Change, and More Change

I’ve always believed that change is a good thing. It can take you out of your comfort zone and introduce you to new people, new places, and new experiences that you would never have known otherwise.
