What is LAM?
LAM is a lifestyle blog targeted towards women of colour. LAM's readers are young adults who enjoy keeping up to date with the latest trends in beauty and/or educating themselves about 'Black History.' Lifestyle on LAM is defined as posts which are Christian-orientated or health-orientated. LAM also regularly features product reviews, fashion snippets, showbiz news, media work experience, and much more. LAM seeks to post on a monthly basis. At the moment all content on LAM is produced independently so on some occasions readers may notice that this period can be either extended or shortened dependent on external commitments.
#MotivationalMonday: Start your week on a postive note with LAM's motivational quotes.
