a day in LA



i love sundays...
and here's why this one was a favorite....
I went to meet my friend Tessa for breakfast at her friends loft across from where I'm staying with my other friend that was working on a shoot...

I got a free pair of Ashbury (the super cool sunnies, pictured above) sunglasses from her friend Adam, who photographs the sunglasses....

we then had a really fun breakfast....with lots of laughing..my favorite past time...
then we all went to a sample sale up in one of the lofts...as, again, pictured above.....ha ha ha...they had free cupcakes!!!
and picture booths...as seen in the buildings in the background......

then we all went to the Renegade Craft Show in the craft mart building in downtown...please note the extreme heat coming off the hot sidewalk in downtown LA....sweat was rolling down my back.....and I smelled like I should have worn a stick of deodorant around my neck...ha ha ha

it was so fun to be swimming in a sea of creativity....I got a really cool necklace at the craft-bonanza....it says SUPREME from a Cutlass Supreme car sign thing....I'll show you more later....it's AWESOME!

I got a free shirt to go with my free sunglassers.....

and I got a bracelet from my friend...turquoise and black leather!!!! me fav!
 I had a great meeting in a Starbucks....
had a yummy burger from the same place i ate  breakfast....
had a whole deck of people at the rooftop pool all yell, "good bye KANDEE!!!".....like 30 or 40 people......i felt so cool in that moment!!! hee hee
so long for a moment to that "not-as-popular-as-the-rest" girl in high school....

and with every ounce of my creativity....My heart rejoiced when someone gave me a compliment for my lil' creation of things I found fun to wear,    that I bought these super fun leggings...even thought i thought, what if people think they are dumb...and I got more compliments on them than anything else.....

I love when i am brave and I wear and say or do the things that I really want.... or that brings me joy....

today i did:

recap of what I wore...
80's leggins
belt
white tank with orange big shirt from Urban Outfitters
black boots I bought on Melrose (they were $40...but I asked if they'd take $30, after I said  to myself, "just ask, what can they say....no?"...and I got what I asked for.....yay!!!!
80's style glasses from Ashbury (model Smokestack Lightning)

and I had cake with one of my favorite people.....to wrap it up....I had berry cake with whipped cream icing....

TODAY WAS A GOOD DAY!!!!

Kandee, if i saw u walking down the street, I would think you were a superstar. I love that you are wearing what you want--and you totally rock it too! Glad u had a good Sunday and thanks for sharing!

Bianca said...

Kandee, I'm new here - read just a few posts - but I already LOVED you! You're so professional and fun on same time! I'm so happy to found you on line!
I have a question that I didn't found in older videos: what is the best hair mask to use on dry, damaged and coloured hair?
thanks for your time!

Heather said...

Kandee, you're absolutely amazing at what you do and I hope you do this for many more years to come. My question, I have cowlicks on both sides of my forehead and I REALLY want bangs. Can I really train my hair and how long would that take? I have very long, very thick hair. Hope you can help. Thanks!

You are such a rockstar! I wish I could pull that off. I had a question for you...what do you think of mineral make-up, particularly the foundations? I feel like it might be worth a try b/c I have oily skin. Let us know chica!

Kandee

I'm studying to become a makeup artist and have found your videos so informative and helpful. Your passion and phenominal skills is truely inspiring. Thank you for all that you do for the makeup industry.

I love days like that when I feel creative and bold and wear what I want. Even better when I get compliments and feel good about myself. I'm glad that you had a great day, Kandee. Whenever you're having a down day, remember days like this so that you can smile again and feel great! :)

Kandee, you're my FAVOURITE!!!! A while back you gave a few options for requests for videos and I was really hoping everyone would pick the do-it-yourself chemical hair straightening vid. Any chance you could still show us? :)

Rita said...

I left you an award on my blog, please check it out!

You are totally adorable, of course, but when you said you didn't like being trendy, you lied. I can't wait for the 80's trend to be over. Totally ugly outfits.
