It’s no secret that Kim Kardashian has changed dramatically since first appearing on the scene in 2006.

From Kardashian Khaos in Las Vegas, to the Kardashian milkshakes at Millions of Milkshakes worldwide, it seems there wasn’t anything the Kardashians weren’t apart of. They sold you Sketchers, cosmetics, fitness DVD’s, perfume, clothes and home goods, all the while encouraging you to follow along for the ride as they took Miami and New York by storm.
