enjoy this fun look...i was made with love.....
have the best day ever....kandee

First things...


(what I saw this morning...like a painting)


Most mornings I have spent the whole night awake editing my youtube videos, until 4,5,6, or even 7 in the morning...then I sleep til about 9:30 or maybe 9:45 and I'm up again...

But the last two nights I've gone to bed before 2:30 in the morning (yay!)...and I have been able to see the sunrise!
There is something quite amazing about watching the sun wake up the day...it feels as if you get to see the day as a blank canvas...full of opportunities and newness. When I wake up later, I always feel like I have to catch up...ha ha ha

Another thing I thought was....how the first thoughts you think...can make or break your day...
Whatever you think about...becomes your priority.
If you wake up thinking about how bad your life is....how you can stop thinking about someone....how you are angry, hurt, or frustrated......what kind of day do you think you're going to have? ha ha ha ha
If you wake up...thankful that you can walk or see, or have a home...thankful that God is shining love, like the sunshine...into your heart...
and you think about your dreams...how you are going to shine love into other people...smiling, saying a kind word, helping someone, holding the door open for the person behind you...giving a compliment...
Today (and everyday), whether you get to witness the sunrise or not...start your day off with only the best thoughts...put hurtful or discouraging thoughts out of your head...and choose only the thoughts that will better you...
We have to choose to manage our emotions or they will run our days and nights...!
And if you feel your emotions are too powerful...they are only as powerful as you let them be...if your heart is broken...begin to say, no....I'm not going to let this other human being that hurt me....rule my day and night...if they hurt you...they certainly don't deserve the power to rule your day. Only let people that make you feel amazing and inspired and loved...effect your day. The other didn't deserve the right to that!
Think about things that are good, positive, loving, encouraging....and all kinds of dreams! Speak kindness and encouragement to others....when you your poor love into others...you'd be surprised how to has a boomerang effect and comes back to your heart too!
huge love to your precious heart.......kandee

leaving things behind....


i once had to move...and all I could take with me was, what could fit in my suitcase...i remember I carefully packed all my little sketch books with my drawings and paintings...my little collection of pens, pencils, and art supplies...and all the things I needed for my little baby...
I remember thinking..."I wouldn't even want to bring all this other stuff with me...into my future...it would just remind me of this yucky past!"....

and that's true for everything...
don't keep dragging your past into your future...
past failures
past heartbreaks
past dissappointments...
your future is too bright to be darkened with the shadows of the past.

I love this.."strain towards what is ahead, forgetting the past"...

too many people drag this big pile of past hurts, past failures, past bad-thinking...and it never lets the beauty of newness and hope really take flight!
Who cares if you've failed at something 200 times...don't tell yourself you're a failure....you're just getting one step closer...

I've made a lot of failed attempts at things...careers, relationships, and so on...
but to be successful, at anything..never let those failures stop you from pressing on towards success in your future...

And sometimes...you have to redo something...and it could make you angry...(like me having to re edit my snow white video and re-post it to youtube....ha ha ha)...or just maybe there's a good reason that I don't know about yet...as to why, if I do it again...it will be better!

leave your past in your past....and run boldy to your future...it's waiting for you, as fresh as can be...every morning!!! this was typed with love....kandee

yay I got to play photo shoot!




(CLICK HERE to see the WHOLE PICTURE....)...I don't have have it yet...the eyelashes & FAN are my FAVORITO!!!
some days in life....you have more fun than normal...this was one of those days....(and we all know I could use a fun day! ha ha ha)
being creative and having fun..it felt more like play and fun than anything else....

I do a lot of make-up looks...and I wish I had someone to show, or go somewhere....or wish it was for a photo shoot....and I'm just making youtube videos...so I go and just wash all my hard work off....and start a new one....ha ha ha

I have a very dear friend, Ian Ruhter...who happens to be an incredibly talented photographer...and I always feel so honored when he photographs me! Ian works for huge globally famous companies...that pay him more than I ever could...so I feel so "fancy" whenever Ian wants to let me stand in front of his talented, picture-taking self.
Ian is amazing...and so are his photo projects....his work makes your heart feel the beauty in the image. And he has taken some of the most amazing photos with lil' ol me in em...you can scroll through his blog and see them...from the bubbles one to the balloons in NY...to the brooklyn bridge (one of my fav's...and not because I'm in it...ha ha ha)...I am honored to get to "creative play" with him....and I am honored to have him as a friend.
I wish I lived next door to him...so I could run over and we could play photo shoot everyday! He is so brilliant...and this was probably the most fun I've ever had, having my picture taken...he makes me laugh a lot...so there was a lot of kandee-laughing faces...ha ha ha


I wanted to do a modern-colorful-kandee-twist, with Marie Antoinette as my inspiration. (I filmed the look too...so I'll edit it as soon as I can)...to know me is to know I love color...and this shoot was very kandee-ful! (ha ha ha)

i even had to take the eyelashes off so we could go to lunch...ha ha ha....I'm brave with my looks...but....ha ha ha ha

you can see more upcoming posts at Ian's fanpage....I think he'll be posting the pics from the other look I did too on there...click here to join

tears are just watering your blessings.......


I was eating lunch today...and even as my friend was making a joke that made me laugh...an Elton John song was playing on Pandora...and "safely hidden" beneath my houndstooth fedora...tears slipped down my face, as I listened to "rocket man"...a song that reminds me of my dad...and being little, and him springing me up into the air out of the pool...which was a "stunt"...he called "rocket man"....my heart just hurt. And I wanted to be 7 again...working in the garage with my dad...detailing my bike or something. Instead I was much older...but I still felt like a little girl...wanting to feel safe...

the night before, i checked my phone to see a text from my sister about my dad...i can't mention it now, because I don't want my lil people to find out yet...(he is alive...but I just don't want to mention it yet).......but
this...in combination with some other things going on in my life...made tears fall like rain...but hopefully it washed my heart a little...

"Those who sow (work) in tears..shall reap (take in, receive) in joy!"...this was like the biggest hug to my spirit...

We get these thoughts that try to discourage us...break our spirit...steal our joy....

and we MUST...must....be diligent and courageous in our thinking...not letting these pains and hurts of life...try to stop us...and kidnap our joy...

it never fails...as soon as you start working hard for something..going after your dream...trying to quit a bad habit...repairing an emotional wound....
it seems as if a sign that says "please attack me...make this harder than it is"...comes on...and next thing you know your doubting your ability and your strength...

I cried tonight as I drove home...through the dark desert...and as no one answered their phone to talk with my "lonely" little self...I had no options left but to listen to a cd....I put in a cd of mine....and the voice boomed through the speakers right to my heart....
NEVER GIVE UP!!!! Never let your "down" thoughts keep you down....

for after a season...the hard work you went through when the tears were falling.....God will say..."it's okay...your were just watering your blessing with the most precious drops from your heart....."

if you are hurting.....just know every tear is precious....and it is most definitely watering the beautiful flowers of blessings that are just waiting to spring up!!!

huge, huge love from my heart to you......and please feel the hug I'm sending too....I know I could always use an extra "hug thought"......

Snow White!!!






I love Disneyland...and pretty much all old Disney movies.... Snow White is so delicate, gentle, and adorable....I loved..LOVED...LOVED doing this make-up look!

Even the hair was fun to do!

I just wanted to go live in Disneyland or one of the enchanted lands~

I researched the art and painting of Disney...they mixed and created their own colors! The look of the original Snow White: And the Seven Dwarfs, was soft with, bright lips and grey-brown eyeshadow...I tried to replicate it exactly as the art from the movie.

I hope you guys like it..I think this was my favorite look and favorite video so far!

For the make-up...I used:
a very light foundation (any brand will do)
concealer wheel by LISE WATIER (i got mine at www.naimies.com)
a light powder (any brand. I used La Mer pressed powder)

For the EYES, I used,
a light shimmery yellow color....(Rice Paper from MAC)
a dark grey shadow ...(PRINT from MAC)
a grey-brown...(COPPERPLATE from MAC)
a warm chocolatey brown (CORK from MAC)

A black liquid or cream liner (any brands)

RED lips!!! ( any bright blue-red lipstick)
I used a bright red lip liner (Cherry from MAC)
I used RUBY WOO from MAC
and any red gloss if you want some added dazzle!

FOR the hair, you just need: bobby pins, hair spray, a brush, and 2 curling irons - 1 small one and one larger...

I got my snow white costume at Spirit...click here for the link...this was the real one...not the "sexy" one..ha ha ha ha

This video was made with love and lots of fun...hope you love it, too!!!

Outfit of the day: a dream & boyfriend jeans


hats are.....a wonderful style element & they are the best thing to make your hair look good when it really doesn't...as was the hair case for me.....ha ha ha (i got this head-topper at good ol' Target...I love Target...but I think I just went in there for like toothpaste and came out with a way bigger bill!)

moving on down the road....I have my orange shirt from Urban Outfitters....
my "boyfriend" cut jeans...(note...these are not my boyfriend's jeans...because I do not have a boyfriend...ha ha ha...that's just what they say inside the seam!)...from H& M...

and my good lo' trusty chuck taylor (converse) in black....

whoa...i just noticed I didn't even put on my watch or wrist apparel in this pictures....what the what!?! ha ha ha ah

have the most awesome, dream filled day.....

I had a very sad discovery last night...tears started spilling and my heart started hurting.....
and both my dear friend and my mom both told me.....just think about your dreams and your future and it will help your heart focus on something....

so today..my heart is going to make a lot of dreams.....so it can run wild in dreamland....

if your day is feeling sad and lonely or hurting.....
I pray it will be filled with dreams so large...that all your hurts will get lost!!!!

the biggest of love.....kandee

Huge thanks go out to Salena Lettera for sending me these pics from her road stop (she is a glamorous female truck driver....with false lashes in her rig...check out her blog...it's really funny...http://www.bellavenere.blogspot.com/

Vintage, pompadors and thigh high boots, oh my!


my amazing mama (shannon)...my pretty aunt...and me trying on hats at the Vintage show in Santa Monica...California....

My Nana was with us too, but I'm not sure where she was when we took this picture...
I did feel like it was Christmas because my Nana gave us each some money to buy some treasures...(thank you so much Nana...if you are reading this...i love you!)...

we had so much fun...we tried on hats, jewelry...and had so much fun wandering through the decades of fashion!

me with the biggest, blingiest earrings...ever...can you say CLIP-ONS!?!

I asked this guy if I could capture the amazement of his super-tall pompador hair....!!! whoa tall!

this was an awesome headband that I would have like to have bought...except that it was $195......
I'll have to do a tutorial on how to make one on the cheap! ha ha ha

my favorite pirate / napoleon hat....i think she we should all start wearing these hats...

I fell in love with these white leather boots......and yes, they did end up leaving with me....I don't know when, or where, exactly I'm going to wear them....but I loved their "pretty woman"-esque-80's-rocker feel.....

It was so fun....I wish I loved in the 40's...could wear extraordinary hats everyday, and clothes that simply dripped with style...it made me want to go through my whole closet and wear only vintage pieces!
(oh, and I got a killer gold biker jacket with fringe on the back....and I mean, shimmery gold, baby!)

ha ha ha

enjoy and bon appe-watch!

I want to send a huge love shout out to...Michelle...who left me a precious note in my purse...and she lit up the room with her joy!!!

a dream is a wish your heart makes....

(photo by Ian Ruhter)
don't be scared of your dreams or dreaming...
some people are so scared of failure that they never try...
but the only way to make it happen is to try!
Not one successful person will say they didn't try! ha ha ha

Your dreams are there for a reason...no one else will create or do what you will. It's like if you asked 2 people to paint a picture of the same tree..each one would do it entirely different. That's the beauty of each one of us being made unique, with fingerprints and "talent-prints"...that only belong to each of us. No one...NOT ONE, other person has your "talent-prints"....your
"dream-prints"!!! Te world needs you to flourish and blossom your dreams...remember...
YOU ARE THE ONLY GARDENER OF YOUR DREAM GARDEN!!
If you don't water your garden...
(discipline yourself and encourage and fill your dream garden with positive thoughts)
and pull the weeds...
(the negative thoughts from you and everyone else!)
and fertilize...
(encourage yourself daily...despite what anyone else tells you! Tell yourself...I am special, no one else has what I've got! The world needs me)

"You are more beautiful than you know...more talented than you think...and more loved than you can imagine!"- Kandee (my words to each one of you!)

You can do it! BE like a speeding train that no one can stop...headed straight for "My Dream" town!

AND one last bit of wisdom my mama told me this morning: "Desire without discipline leads no where!"
so discipline yourself to do something about that precious dream of yours, that keeps knocking at your heart!

God put that dream in the suitcases of your heart...it's time to unpack those dreams and show them to the world!!!

This was blog was typed with love and so much encouragement for you...please feel all that I filled it with for you!!! huge love you wonderful, precious dreamer, you!

you can watch or pass this message or video on to anyone else that has a "dream garden" that could use this little bit of "dream grower"!

the real Johnny Depp as Edward Scissorhands

Kandee Johnson (ha ha ha) as Edward Scissorhands



i love Johnny Depp...I think he is such an amazing and organic, actor....so real and vulnerable. I think that's why Edward Scissorhands is so loved...he is fragile and vulnerable...and you want to hug him..even with scissors for hand-shakers!

black motorcylce jacket...black leggings wrapped around my neck and a belt with metal rings...you could find much better costume accessories at www.hottopic.com, I bet!

FOR MAKE-UP....
Lise Watier concealer wheel in the green and lavender (you can get this at www.naimies.com, tell them I sent ya, they are so nice!)
La Mer pressed powder on 01 cream (it's worth every extra dollar....I love this stuff!)
BLUNT from MAC for contouring
Black eyeliner (to contour nostrils)
Elmer's Glue to conceal eyebrows (watch this video to see how...CLICK HERE)
Lip color - dark plumb color eyeshadow from MAC (Deep Damson)
Liquid Latex and Duo Eyelash Glue for scars (you can get liquid latex here CLICK HERE)
I used eyeshadows in white, medium warm brow (all MAC shadows) CORK, grey brown COPPERPLATE, cool chocolate brown (Charcoal Brown), light brown (Omega), purple-plumb (BlackBerry) and purple grey (Quartz)...
