Come with me on a KANDEE ADVENTURE!!! (and Marilyn Monroe, too)

Please keep all hands and arms inside the blog while we are going on our trip....
and we are so glad you chose to travel with us Kandee AdventureLand....
our first stop is the MOMA: Museum of Modern Art in New York City

guess who else will be meeting us there?

look where we're going!!!!
(this is my friend Ian, standing in front of the museum....I didn't know where we were walking to....but he lead us here...I was so excited!
Ian is: a) my friend b) an amazing photographer (I've driven by billboards of his work) and he has taken the really cool pictures you see of lil' ol' me (I'm always honored when he takes my picture)...see his stuff here ....www.ianruhter.blogspot.com and he let me use his "way-better-than-mine" point and shoot camera to take pictures in there (thanks homie!)
this was me (clad in the red "super woman boots", and fedora...taking pictures with my iphone, before Ian let me use his "waaaaaaaay better canon camera"....)..look at all the junk I'm holding....huge-o purse....folder thing....."oh yeah, I got to go meet with one of the nicest producer's in the world on the Rachel Ray show...that's why I have my little folder...she even came to my Glaminar (my make-up classes)...she was awesome! Hi Jill!"
this was the very first thing that I wanted to take a picture of....It is a chandelier of EXPLODING plates, cups, pitchers, forks, spoons.....it is like seeing a still shot of all this clean white, "dishery" bursting.....this was one of my favorites!
Marilyn Monroe was there too!!! Eternal style icon... (I love that she's eating a cheeseburger!) I also love that she mostly did her own hair and make-up...I researched all her techniques and products she used...I even did a little video...if you wanna watch it...CLICK ON THIS
classic Marilyn Monroe Halter dress...look at those eyebrows...and people make comments about mine! ha ha ha ha
oh I love these.....this is the handiwork of Richard Avedon, his photography is still so fresh and interesting...I love the curve of her body and the movement you can feel just looking at it!
and now we have the timeless beauty, Bridget Bardot, talk about a sexpot! (I need to do a tutorial on her make-up!)
I don't remember who shot this..but I LOVED her make-up (and hair)...love it!!! Reminds me of pics from the 60's of my Nana's (she was a hairdresser) hair and make-up...
oh..the colors just jumped into your eyeballs and danced around with your mind...Do you see the face hidden in it! I absolutely LOVE this...I would hang this in my living room in nanosecond!
I love this chandelier....I couldn't capture it...but somehow words spiraled down it in lights...so cool.....It could say "goodnight" right above my bed...ha ha ha You can see the silhouettes of all the modern chairs that were sitting outside that screen, on all different levels.
cool fluorescent tubes shaped like a NY building (want this in my housey!)
for some reason I found the "butterfly wire"...not barbed wire...kinda interesting...it looks like wrapping paper decoration instead of the usual "coiled around a prison" thing you normally think of!
the view looking down from the 4th floor..whoa! (see my red boot in the lower left corner?)
This is so Flintstone's meets DJ....I love the concrete turntable with the rusty metal, mesh, sticking out....how cool and industrial would that be on your table!?!
the view from one of the side of the MOMA...look at all the awesome buildings! I love NY!
Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night!!! I actually saw it!!! Well there were too many people standing in the way taking pics so I couldn't get close enough to see brush strokes...(I didn't take this pic...I copied and pasted it...I couldn't even get close enough to take a picture!)
If this doesn't say "Kandee loved color like this"...I don't know what does? I can't remember who painted this...but I LOVE IT!

I even saw painting by one of my fav artists, Kandinsky (yeah and not just cuz' both of our names start with "Kand"....ha ha ha)
There were so many paintings to see...
and just so everyone knows...this was the "all-time-longest-time-taking-blog-post", I've ever done....this sucker has taken me almost 2 1/2 hours to get all these pictures on here and type! (we could've flown half way to NY from LA by now...ha ha ha ha)
Hope you enjoyed our "trip" today....
Please come back tomorrow for more adventures....I'll save you a seat!!!
Thanks you for flying in thought, with KandeeAdventureLand Air! We love you!

OMG! Those pictures are stunning, both the architecture and celebrity ones. God, Marilyn Monroe and Bridget Bardot looks stunning! Definitely make a tutorial! If you can also, make a video on Twiggy's make-up. She's fabulous! Like she's wearing it here: http://img.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2007/02_02/twiggyDM200207_468x515.jpg

It'd be super cool. :)

Btw I am loving your outfit at the MOMA and yay for Ian for letting you use his camera! And thanks bb for taking the time uploading everything, you rock!
