Together with her equally famous family, Kim goes to Bowlmore Lanes for bowling fun. Wearing a skintight pants and a daring see-through top, she missed the fashion mark and went overboard. Still, we love Kim Kardashian's style because she looked stunning in her trademark makeup and nice features. What do you think?

The Significance Of My Blog Title Trendy Karen

When I was in my elementary years, I didn't know anything of the word "style" and so ignorant about the fashion world. I was like a weird, geeky and wide-reader kid who gets accustomed to her loads of books and reading materials. In fact, one of my grade school teachers (I won't name names here) was hesitant to cast me as part of the school-wide theater show Sleeping Beauty just because I look like a super skinny young girl with no sense of style. But the incident created a sudden spark in my mind - an innocent dream that one day I'll become a fun, fearless and knowledgeable fashionista.

Little by little, I grew tired of being less fortunate in life and has decided to become stylishly prudent in lifestyle and career goals. Since being a lawyer has been literally withheld by my ultimate confidante, God himself, I decided to go back to my first love - being a fierce writer. I said fierce because I was not reluctant to experience true-to-life heartbreaks and joy to prepare myself to become an author someday.

Enter my hot fashion pursuit. When blogging became a hit, I tried to incorporate my love of dressing up and styling. My ardent desire to embrace modest fashion clothing research and writing allowed me to find my dream job - as a fashion writer. I'm not yet an expert, but dreams to become one, and I will make sure that I can live up to the title of this blog, Trendy Karen.

Why YOU Should Enter: The World Media Awards

There are a lot of excellent bloggers and publishers doing great work, and those who stand out deserve to have their work recognized, connect with each other, and see their readerships grow. That’s why the World Media Awards exist- to recognize and reward great contributions to media from bloggers and publishers.

In my own career, I’ve learned and benefited so much from others that I wanted to help establish some way to give back to an industry I love show appreciation to the up-and-coming leaders. The World Media Awards will culminate in a one day event in San Francisco that will celebrate the best in blogging, forums, publishing and media from around the world. 

So if you are a world class blogger, why should you enter?
1. Get Recognized- You Deserve It !

    You put a lot of effort into making your blog amazing. You understand it and your readers know it. The World Media Awards is a way for you to get authoritative recognition from other bloggers and industry experts. That recognition will help you grow your readership, make new collaborative connections, and hopefully have a few warm fuzzy moments that make all the late nights even more worthwhile.
    2. Meet Other Bloggers Who Care

      Blogging, forums and most other online media is about conversation and interaction, but sometimes it’s easy to end up trying to hide away behind a screen in your office or home all alone. Meeting other bloggers and publishers keeps the fire lit and the conversation going. When you enter the World Media Awards, you’ll be listed alongside other bloggers and publishers who put the same level of delight, attention and work into making their blog great.
      3. Expose Yourself to New Partners

        If your blog or forum is part of your company, being part of the World Media Awards will increase your exposure by putting your name in front of numerous visitors to our site and the award ceremony. That means you can find out who else is doing very good work, strut your own stuff, and expand your network of contacts and collaborators.
        4. Make Yourself Irresistible to Clients

          What helps your chances at winning that next pitch more than growing your network? Telling that network that you just won a World Media Award. Winning an award shines a light on your success, and it serves as an example of the commitment, engagement and exacting standards you apply to your work.
          5. Be Part of the Beginning of Something Big

            Because 2012 is the first year for these awards, you have the one-time opportunity to be the inaugural winner and set the standard for the World Media Awards in your category. Getting in on the ground floor of these awards will open opportunities for you as a blogger and a publisher.

            The bottom line is, the World Media Awards will shine a spotlight on the year’s most prosperous bloggers and publishers, and on the organizations that serve and interact with them.

            Now is your chance to be one of them.

            The sponsors include Growmap, Pace Lattin, VigLink and Trancos.
            World Media Award judges include Steve Hall, Sarah Austin, Chang Kim, Julie Wohlberg, Pierre Zarokian, Ivka Adam, Cheryl Contee, Krystyl Baldwin, Adrian Harris, Jeremy Wright, Rob Bloggeries, Dave Duarte, Tanya Alvarez, Dana Oshiro, Tom Foremski, and Judith Lewis. hashtag #wmads on Twitter.

            My Thoughts On The Sting Of The Scorpion Address

            These days, I've been thinking on how to deal with a church colleague's behavior. I'm not feeling right on what she's doing and so it affected my church related duties. Maybe, for her, I'm just a 30-year-old woman who lacks the wisdom and knowledge she possesses, or maybe she doesn't like me. The tide of confusion and indifference surrounded me to the highest level because in the first place I was given the primary responsibility to fulfill my tasks.

            Enter The Sting Of The Scorpion address by Elder Patrick Kearon. Because of my latest predicament,  I became overly lazy and uninterested in doing my assignments. Later on, I learned to justify my actions and hate what my colleague is doing against me. But the message is clear: "When it comes to how we live the gospel, we must not respond with laziness or rebelliousness." In that sense, I must diligently strive to become what the Lord needs and wants me to be, despite the challenges that I've been facing lately. Yes, her behavior is like the sting of a scorpion that may devour me, but there are many positive ways to solve the problem. This powerful address,  The Sting Of The Scorpion, has inspired me to do the right thing and endure to the end.

There's no doubt the place is a dream wedding venue right at the heart of the magnificent islands of Asia. Impressed by the wedding venue, I've intended to dig deeper and marvel at the splendid view until I came across Juan Carlo The Caterer's food tasting event that was held in the enchanting place, Fernbrook Gardens.
