Here at Kollectin, we are always on the lookout for women who embrace the "Girl Boss" mantra. In particular, we like to recognize women who are followed and admired because they possess notable aspirations and influential lifestyles.   

One of Kollectin’s stand out Style Stars has been, writer and travel blogger, Kaila Yu. Kaila is indeed living her "Best Life" so much that she has been named Style Star of the month for July. Kaila is an accomplished scribe with credits in VICE, Skyscanner, Matador and Extra Crispy, among others. Her pieces are mainly focused on travel and food, but the stylish tastemaker also considers herself a fashionista, brand strategist, and cat lover. She has also co-founded lifestyle brand Nylon Pink and food brand NomList.  


When it comes to being a Kollectin Style Star, in addition to being an ambassador for the brand, Kaila has her very own digital jewelry boutique that has been curated to reflect her own personal style. 

“I absolutely love the selection of jewelry within Kollectin,” said Kaila. “I am a statement jewelry type of girl, and Kollectin has an endless collection of dangling designs. There’s nothing better than having a new selection of jewelry every month to inspire all my outfit of the day choices!” 

Not one to shy away from the camera, Kaila often posts stunning images on her social media pages that feature many of her favorite Kollectin pieces. She gives credit to her photographer and fellow Style Star, Kiki Wongo and offers the tip, “The most important thing is lighting. A bit overcast is great, too sunny is not great for taking photos.” 

At the end of the day, travel is Kaila’s top passion. “I want to teach everyone that travel is accessible to everyone, and I plan on launching a course, teaching on how I built my travel career,” she said of her future plans and goals.
