let the words that come out of your mouth...encourage, inspire, compliment, and brighten someones day!
When you speak positive words into'll be surprised how it actually "speaks" positivity into your own heart and spirit...

where is my mind?

despite a sleep diet the equivalent....of sleep anorexia....I am surprised at my "somewhat" functional thought workings....
My mind and heart were both INSPIRED & IGNITED in the right direction....

"as a man thinks, so he is".... (think great & wonderful thoughts about yourself and your life)
"think upon things that are good and pure" (if you do you'll notice how you begin to feel better!)
"whether you think you CAN or you CAN''re RIGHT!" (so decide that you CAN!!!!)

It will feel weird to change your "old" way of will take continual "remindings" get your thoughts back on track...
just like the dialogue that goes on when you break can either be:
"OMG! I will never find a guy/girl better than them!!! I will never be happy without them!!! They are the only one for me!!!!"
(insert crying...not wanting to get out of excitement for living......wanting to destroy whole pints of ice cream!)

OR saying: "There is a reason they are not in my life anymore! The more time I am away, I know I will feel stronger...And I will rejoice that I went through this time of "agony"....when I find the person that will never hurt me... or treat my heart they way I've been treated....I don't deserve that! I am strong....I was made wonderfully on my own...and I will rejoice in my freedom....and eat ice cream only if I really want to! ha ha ha ha

Your thoughts are like the seeds in your garden...whatever they are...they are going to grow into big plants...if you have seed-thoughts of negative, I'm never gonna make it, sarcasm....what kind of flowers are going to grow in the garden of your life, from those seeds?
Today..think about things that are good, positive, hopeful...and if it doesn't fit into those categories......give those thought an eviction notice..TO GET OUT!!!!!!!

You are too wonderful to think un-good thoughts!!!! You are one-of-kind-absolutely-fantastic! Let your thoughts agree with that too, okay?!?
You guys are awesome!!!! I love you to the moon and back...xoxo kandee

Barbie Dream Girl & Your Dream Life

(yes!!! this is the next "glameo" (like a video but glamourous! ha ha ha)

Hi all you beautiful, precious people!!!
Barbie was just a plastic doll...but she had her "dream" everything...dream house, dream car....dream get it!

I want to encourage each of you to listen to the dream inside you...
you are the only one in the whole world with the everything inside you to accomplish those dreams! Whenever you do something you enjoy and know you can be good at're using your gifts! No one else hears the song that plays in your heart like you do...if you ask 2 people to paint the same sky, each one would be unique and different...just like the one-of-a-kind, voice that speaks inside of you....there will never be another have something the world has never seen!
If you feel like you will never accomplish your dreams because:
you're too young or old
you don't have the training
no one else believes in you
you've never told anyone
you're a single mom
you have kids
not out-going enough (I used to be so shy in school!)
a girl or guy (and it's not an area they normally work in)
you don't live where you need to be
you need to make money
you're not seeing the results you want
maybe your heart is frustrated...and you feel like you might as well cry and mourn the death of your dream!
Well I want to tell you.... DARE TO DREAM BIG & BELIEVE...imagine yourself living that life of your the uncomfortable steps to get something worth every ounce of hard work you devote to it!

I've had sleepless nights because I was working so hard (gosh, I was up til 6 am editing my Queen of Hearts video...ha ha ha)...I didn't leave my house for days at a time due to working on my projects...didn't go hang out with friends...
I've made phone calls that made me so nervous
I've asked people questions (about helping me)...that took me so long to get the courage to always was worth it 10 times over!!!!

Here's a quick inspiration:
I have a friend who is a camera man (he is also very young-under 25) ...he called one of the biggest agents for everything in Hollywood (Oprah is with them if that tells you anything)...
he called them everyday...4 times a day, for like 2 months....until they finally sent him the script he wanted (to direct)...(this does not happen normally!)...he got the creators consent...and big name actors want to be in it....
He said..."What do I have to lose!?! All they could say is no.....".....BUT eventually they said yes!

If it feels impossible...know that God specializes in making the impossible...HAPPEN!!!
I am a perfect example...who would've thought a single mom with 3 kids...would be able to take care of her kids....and do what she loves...and become a precious part of people's lives...and encourage them from her little house!?!

I love you and all your precious much...sometimes your comments put the biggest smile in my heart...and sometimes they touch me so much I leak all kinds of tears... thank you for sharing your love with me!!!

Now go out and DREAM BIGGER THAN you EVER HAVE.....decide that nothing is going to stop circumstance.......God loves when you dream, because He put that dream inside you! And he has a track record of making things that looked impossible, become amazingly possible!

I love you dreamer!!! You are fabulous....wonderful...and full of talent waiting to be set free!

Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp in Alice In Wonderland) Make-Up

and here's Johnny.....
(Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's Alice In Wonderland)

when I was 12...I auditioned for the role of Alice, in Alice In was a musical.
I got the part (insert...YAY!)...I made my outfit...a NEON Alice In Wonderland...3 tiered neon orange, green and pink skirt
neon shirt...neon headband, and some sort of brightly colored footwear, I'm sure....memory is a little hazy...ha ha ha
I sang, I wandered (under pink and orange stage lights)...talked to caterpillar's...
it was fun....every night, I loved it!

My favorite part about make-up, is the art and creative thinking that is involved...
this look was so fun to come up an artist, this is my favorite...really "painting" and "designing" a look...

for the EYEBROWS...I first tried a gigantic pair of fake eyelashes...they looked bad....then I remembered I bought feathers for the Marie Antoinette away I went to glue some feathers for eyebrows....I like the "Artsy" feel that they gave...very ethereal!

may I mention, that I really like Johnny Depp...(even when he was on 21 Jump Street...ha ha ha)

HAIR COLOR TIP: spend an extra dollar and buy the good hair color spray...mine was the store brand (Target, Wal-Mart, etc)....and it stunk, didn't really cover well....spend the extra 75 cents or's worth it!

(before the ceremonial 10 face remove all feather-glue traces...)
watch and enjoy...please feel free to make a video response on youtube if you do this look! I'd love to see!
have a great day...remember "It's NEVER TOO LATE, to be who you might have been"- George Herbert (Julia Child was in her 50's when she started cooking!)
huge smiles, kandee

Ahhhhh before & after of a not-fun-kind!

BEFORE (bad) AFTER (so much better)

I could not wake up one more morning and look at my, bathroom-explosion-o'-make-up...
I don't like seeing too much make-up on counters and I would love if it could all be tucked away, safely inside a drawer...BUT

#1 I have way too much make-up to that (every girls loves this problem...ha ha ha!)

#2 I have little hands in my house that would empty, smear, dump out..any and all things colorful

So finally I spent almost 4, LONG, NOT FUN, hours, organizing, cleaning, and trying to find little storage things to put eyeshadows, lipsticks, name it...away!!!
this was me..hating the cleaning and organizing (2 hours in)

it's a little wouldn't know how much make-up I had to go through....I'd think I was done, and I'd walk into my room and see another bag or box full of make-up...or I'd find my make-up for my kit (the make-up I use on jobs for film or photoshoots, or celeb appearances)...and have to go put that away.....
It's done and I should go buy myself an ice cream! ha ha ha
the one thing that did help....I LISTENED to the KASKADE (dance music) station on PANDORA.... (if you haven't downloaded PANDORA onto your phone or computer...DO IT RIGHT can pick any band or song and they play similar music...I love it!!!! go to, I think....and add KASKADE as a station.....!!!)
happy, awesome day.....kandee
