Trend Alert: Platform Sandals

Are you concerned with purchasing comfortable shoes this spring/summer, but you don’t want to compensate for the shoe’s stylish appearance? Then, these shoes are great for you! Platform sandals have always been on the fashion radar. Over the years they have been continuously improved and reinvented. However, this year they are particularly different in style! The sandals still give us those few inches of height off the ground, but this time around, the platform isn’t wedged. They have a thick flat platform that is supportive and a sweet-casual shoe alternative. These shoes are similar to the one above, but the metallic shell is truly an eye-catching trend. They would make a great addition to any futuristic outfit of your choice. The perfect casual shoe! Instead of wearing a typical pair of flip-flops, opt for these amazing slip on shoes. Try wearing these with a pair of boyfriend jeans and loose-fitting tee shirt. These black Steve Madden shoes will go perfectly with any of your summer ventures out to the mall or a steaming BBQ party! By Fatimah Foster

First and foremost, I believe that people must live their lives for themselves.  We should not have to go through life constantly worrying about what the person next to us thinks about our hair or the outfit we are wearing. When people are comfortable within their own skin, and accepting of themselves, confidence will exude and make you more approachable to others. When you act with grace and confidence, those around you will see that and treat you with the highest levels of respect. Once you accept yourself and …

Stand Up & Stand Out

One fear that everyone has when they go off to college is that they are going to be just another small fish in a very large and blended pond. They become worried that they are going to get lost in the shuffle and become just another number. However, there are people who have learned the tricks of the trade on how to stand out on a big campus. YHM asks Kean University student, Mamie Marima, what she does to stand out in a crowd. “I feel like I set myself apart by the clothes I wear. I have a unique style of clothing and love to shop. When I go to buy something, I never ask myself if so and so will like it. The only opinion that matters is my own and if I like it then I’m going to wear it. The main aspect of standing out, I think, is being yourself. You may not necessarily want to follow what the latest “trend” is because you don’t want to be identical to those …

A simple tank top that you can easily layer with a t-shirt, a cardigan or just wear it alone.
