#KYDRASquad Spotlight – Kimberly Lam: Live Your Happy
The secret to living a happy life is to find the right balance. Our schedules are always so hectic that most of us are stressed trying to juggle work, family, exercise plans, and self-care routines.
So this week, we asked Kimberly, one of our #KYDRASquad members to share her story in achieving the perfect balance in beauty, fitness and life.
From being an award-winning model to a television presenter and a viral social media influencer, Kimberly Lam is a girl who can do everything!
After graduating, Kim dove headfirst into a demanding career as a presenter. She has hosted mega international events and presented for leading cosmetics brands. She’s also had a successful career as a model and has impacted many lives as a style and wellness social media influencer.
More importantly, Kim is also a proud ambassador of #KYDRASquad, and she sat down with us to talk about how she achieves balance in beauty, fitness, and life.
THE SECRET TO TAKING CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE!
Kim is all about celebrating life’s adventures!
She reveals that her secret is 24/7 living. When asked what celebrating life meant to her, Kim shared that you shouldn’t only celebrate the big wins and learn to honour the small moments and the everyday accomplishments. These small wins can look different for everyone - maybe you slayed at a difficult meeting, or you’re happy that your Starbucks barista finally remembers your name! Either way, there’s always a reason to celebrate life and live it up.
“I try to make the best of every moment and have zero regrets! My family was a huge part of this philosophy because I have a big family of 7 - so every day was a party!”
Her fun-loving outlook on life colours a lot of her exciting social media content - as Kim says, she tries to promote the idea of taking charge of your own life.
“I firmly believe in taking charge of your life and not blaming anyone for the cards you’ve been dealt. I think all our successes and failures are based on our own choices.”
ACHIEVING BALANCE IN FITNESS, BEAUTY AND LIFE.
“Don’t do it if you’re not going to vibe with it.” Kim’s outlook on creating a balanced life can be summarised in this catchy quote!
And she’s right. Don’t do anything that doesn’t come from the heart - whether it’s studies, work projects, or relationships.
We asked Kim what she does to relax, but she said, “The activities I do every day make me very happy and never feel like work at all!” Her everyday optimism and positive outlook are proof we need that you can, in fact, do it all while never sacrificing your mental health! The secret is just to #LiveYourHappy.
If what you’re doing isn’t sparking joy - don’t do it. It sounds deceptively simple, but this practice involves a lot of conviction, boundary-setting, and self-confidence. “Living your happy” can take years to master!
And what is Kim’s view of true beauty? She says, “Beauty is purity - of heart, mind, and most importantly, soul. Don’t be a b*tch.”
KIM'S TRIED-AND-TESTED HEALTH AND WELLNESS TIPS!
Kim always seems to be glowing from the inside out! We asked her to share her holy grail skincare, hair, and fitness secrets with #KYDRASquad.
SKINCARE - “I like to keep my skincare routine financially sustainable! Over the years, there’s only been one item I find myself constantly reaching for: my trusty $4 Korean Aloe Vera Gel that I keep in the fridge to cool my skin down after I wash my face. That and my Biore Sunscreen are my only staples!”
HAIR - “You might think I’m insane for saying this, but don’t wash your hair! Please don’t wash your hair daily because this strips it of its natural oils. It’s healthier to wash your hair on alternate days. Don’t be like me, though - once, I took my advice and went nine days without a hair wash. Didn’t smell great, but at least it looked glossy!”
FASHION - “What’s better than marrying fashion with fitness by wearing KYDRA?”
FASHION TRENDS AND COLOUR PALETTES TO WATCH OUT FOR!
If you’re looking for holiday fashion inspo, we think Christmas is the time to go all out - and Kimberly agrees!
“The holiday season is all about the shimmer and shine, especially when you wine and dine!”
When we asked Kim which colour palettes she’s looking forward to wearing in 2023, she shared she’s excited to wear more muted and neutral tones. “I’d love to see more autumn shades in the coming year - especially terracotta, sage, and sand!” says Kim.
Kim is a treasured part of our incredible #KYDRASquad, so we had to ask her which KYDRA pieces she loved and wore the most!
“I’ve been living 24/7 in my KYDRA Longline Bras - in fact, I have them in Silver Pine, Celestial, Espresso, and White!” she exclaimed excitedly.
“KYDRA’s Longline Bras are the best because they’re lined with comfortable padding, so you don’t have to worry about a bra underneath. This feature is super helpful if you’re on holiday and packing space is limited. I’ve saved so much time and space going braless by packing only KYDRA tops. Nobody has time for a bra when you can wear KYDRA!”
We take Kim’s words seriously! Take control of your life, live your happy, and shop KYDRA this upcoming holiday season!
