Falling in Love.....

i know....sometimes, if you are not with someone to whom you can plan giving lovey things to...the thought of walking inside every store right now....filled with hearts bigger than you head, more red and pink than an entire Victoria's Secret store....and more cupid's than you see for the rest of the year...makes you want to say "BAAAAA Heart-bug!"......and run right past all that heart crap....

BUT.....if you are in "like" or love with someone....then your mind dances wildly with all the sweet things you can do....make "love" coupons......bake something yummy....the little lovey things you'll write in the cards you buy....notes to be left in pockets or on bathroom mirrors...

and somewhere in between these two....is....
LOVE give yourself a Valentine's....love on yourself.....the best way to take care of our love garden...is to water your own garden....tell yourself how beautiful you are today....get yourself a little treat...maybe a new magazine....or some small little inexpensive goodie...a yummy scented lotion or perfume...a new song off of itunes to dance to...a little craft project for your creative heart....

If you fall in love with yourself (and I mean this is the most non-stuck-up kind of way)...your confidence will soar....and you will know the special and amazing person that you are....and you will be 20,000 times more attractive to everyone around you!

I have a friend who is not happy with her weight....but she doesn't let it effect her....she acts like she is the most attractive thing in the room! ANd you know what!?! Her confidence rubs off on everyone.....and guys just flock to her! I love it!

Today's mission:
tell yourself....I am loved, I am beautiful...everyone likes when I'm around, I'm fun...I'm interesting, and Kandee thinks I'm amazing!!!!!!

buy yourself a little something fun (even if it costs a $1)

You are great....and you deserve to know how amazing you are! I love ya lots....hugs through the computer...kandee

This made me feel a little better Kandee. My boyfriend and I broke up on Friday after dating for almost a year and a half. The day we broke up was 2 days before our 17 month mark, and less than a month away from Valentines day. I watched your breakup boot camp video to give myself a little hope and it helped. Thank you for everything <3

Flavia said...

Kandee, I LOVE YOU! Thank you so much. You really help people...your videos are sooooo helpfull...full of happiness. EVERYTIME I am going trough something sad, hard or diffucult...I come to your blog and youtube channel and watch a video or read something that you wrote...even when its something I have already read or watched 10 times...it makes me feel better!!! THANK YOU, KANDEE!!!

Zero_FX said...

Thats true, A lot of people get all bummed out around valentines day because they don't have a special somebody, Truth is, Kandees right, just love yourself and everybody else around you, and everything else will fall into place, and It's good to treat yourself to something special every once and a while. Well spoken Kandee, Well spoken... PROPS TO KANDEE!!!

StylishBeauty said...

I intend to pamper myself on Valentine's Day even though I know I will be spoiled by my boyfriend too. I think it's so important to love yourself first. If you don't love yourself, how can you love someone else? So pamper yourself too Kandee bc I know you deserve it!!!

yojessimac said...

So SWEET and yummy this post is...Thanks for the note-in-pocket idea :) I am going to do that to my bf...I am 'in love' with you and all you do, and I hope you have a beautiful heart filled day!

Darcey said...

Such a wonderful thing! As women we are usually busy loving others (kids, significant others, parents, friends, etc) and we forget to take care of ourselves and internal well being. My splurge is actually you my wonderful Kandee. I take 20 min once or twice a week and watch your videos and read your blogs and go off into a wonderful girly land filled with color, love, beauty and happy thoughts. Yes, I do splurge on some products at MAC and Sephora as well, but none do my soul as much good as drifting into Kandee land! You do a wonderful service to women and I hope you know we appreciate you. Especially, women like me who are surrounded all the time by boys. Having female time by just logging onto my computer is the most wonderful thing ever! thank you so much Kandee!

Susie said...

Kandee!!! you are the sweetest thing alive!! haha thanks for spreading your kandeeness to the world and for being such a great person. happy valentine's day to you!

After Thoughts said...

Hey Kandee.. I just wanted to reiterate what all these lovely ppl have been telling you =P You are such a joy to watch. You're bubbly personality and genuinely touching words mean so much (especially when I'm having a bad day). You obviously touch so many people with every little thing you do and I'm sure everyone would back me up in saying we all truly and wholeheartedly appreciate your efforts.

One other thing though.. I just got involved with The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's TEAM in Training and I'm currently training and fundraising for their South Maui Triathlon in honor of my two aunts that have had to deal with cancer for the past 15-20 yrs of their lives. I was just hoping you wouldn't mind helping me and spreading the word. I don't mean to beg or anything like that but just thought I'd ask for help considering it's for a cause that effects a great amount of people. I need to fundraise half of $7000 by March 12th and rest by May 1st. I need all the help I can get. Proceeds go straight to research in helping find the cure for cancer and in helping provide the necessary healthcare and education to those and their families who are diagnosed with cancer. 50cents to a $1 goes a LONGGGGG way if enough people contribute to the cause so anything helps =)

here's my link and I hope you can check it out. There's more info about in on the site and you can also watch my progress from there as well as make any donation you would like. Thank you for taking the time to read all this >_< sorry for the "novel" haha just inspired is all 0=)

Please help me in spreading the word to donating to help finding the cure for Cancer:

After Thoughts said...

ahh.. that was so long.. sorry again for the "novel" >_< much love!!!

selenity_luz said...

Amazing words, dear Kandee!!! Just lifted me up!:-)

Anna Paula said...

Kandee,

Your videos and posts make me so happy and just cheer me up sometimes when I need the most!
I know you don't even know who any of us are, but I truly feel like I have such a wonderful friend in you. A kind of friend that I was needing so bad. Who gives me advices, cheers me up, gives me the coolest beauty tips. Just a beautiful person!
By the way, the day we were able to use the BlogTV with you was So much fun!

Thank you!!

Your biggest fan from Brazil,
Anna :)

brandi72 said...

This made me tear up. I too am unhappy with the 10 to 15 lbs I need to lose and have tried so much to lose for 4 yrs. Just thinking of your friend makes me feel ashamed of myself for not embrassing myself for who I am and enjoying what a wonderful life I have. Love you so much think and pray for you often. Thanks!

Missie Mom said...

kandee I love you!!
you have such a wonderful attitude and it rubs off on me!
i have become a much more postive person since finding your videos and blog.. plus I have nice eyebrow now too!
take care! and thanks for all your inspiration!!

ndoodles said...

Hi Kandee :D You are so inspirational. Your words are so great and it truly fills might heart w/ hope and dreams. Thanks a lot! Keep up the great work!

xoladiihoneyxo said...

Happy early Valentines Day to you! Did you know, this year's Chinese New Year lands on the American Valentines Day? hehe. You're gorgeous. I love this look on you =] I don't celebrate Valentines Day, it was never my thing but I do surely hope you enjoy it. Make some of your famous cupcakes? I still haven't tried out the frosting yet.

Katrina said...

It's nice to hear this directed at you while you're reading. Sometimes it's just nice to have someone tell you things you've been trying to work on and when it's still so hard to believe. Thanks Kandee! You really are amazing, and possess the biggest heart I know

murry8304 said...

Kandee, you made me cry! I've been having the worst time, feeling so down lately, and i read this, and you make my heart just light up again, someone whom i've never even met,or has met me, has the ability to make me feel special, and like I am great. Thank you for that! :)
you're my favorite!

gris said...

Kandee,

Thank you. It felt like you dedicated to me. I feel this way sometimes-lonely & sad 'cause I don't have someone around me to love and love me back. It encourages me & gives me hope that one day I will be loved by someone meanwhile I'll love myself....

Elizabeth Woods said...

That made me smile. :)
Thank you Kandee. I hope you have a wonderful Valentines day.

missjanet79@yahoo.com said...

You're AWESOME Kandee! =) As women, we all have the "nurturing" habit of helping & doing for others whether we're mothers or not & it's great to remember ourselves & love ourselves every once in a while! Smooches!!!!

Sum said...

Awee Kandee...
Thank you so mch for your kind nd encouragin' wourds..!

You're amazin'..!

Love you lots too..! :) nd *hus* :) xoxoxo

selena005 said...

I am so happy I came across your videos...I searched bridal makeup. I am hooked! You are very talented, but your talent isn't the only thing that kept me coming back...it's your personality and positive attitude that brings me back. You have such an amazing spirit that lifts me up when I'm having a crappy day. You truly are an inspiration to your fans. Thank you for your videos and sharing your llfe with us. Love ya Kandee!

Erica said...

I love your updates! No! Really I do. Your such a positive person with the most wonderful advice!

Flutterbang said...

We love you too, Kandee <3 Never change!

Jesie said...

Hello Kandee just wanted to stop and tell you thanks so much for all of your encouragement and insight. You rock :)

21 and 79 years to go said...

THANKS SO MUCH KANDEE!!!! UR THE SWEETEST! My eyes watered when I read this because loving myself has been something I have struggled with for quite awhile now. I try to be like your friend that doesn't let her weight affect her, but it's difficult. With an encouraging word like yours from one Christian girl to the next, I feel 10x better. :)

I thank God for a leader like you Kandee.

Tracy Stewart said...

Kandee -- I just love you to death. I know I don't know you, but your videos and the glimpses you grant us of your life make me feel like I do. If I had the nerve, I'd be just like you...silly dancing and all!

I struggle with my weight also, and it truly wears on me. My eyes were welling up with tears as I read your blog and I just had to comment.

I think it was in the movie Hope Floats where the mother always used to tell the daughter, "My cup runneth over" as words of love. That's exactly the way you make me feel. When I watch your videos or read your words of hope, my cup runneth over.

You are a beacon of hope in a dark world, and like so many others, I thank you for what you do. I hope you keep doing it for a long time to come. The world needs more people like you. :o)

Diane said...

Hugs right back at you Kandee!

I really feel better when I think to myself
"Kandee loves me" :)

Thanks for brightening my day!

kiss

xSantyx said...

Hey Kandee
I've just finished watching your recent video on youtube and i've left you a comment.

Wish i could give you a big hug, even though i'm leaving you a comment i feel it isn't enough. :(

Your not alone gorgeous, you have millions of friends worldwide (including myself) who care so much about you, always remember that.

**big hugs**
Love you!

Santy

earth said...

Don't forget that all the sweet, encouraging things you said are true about you, too, Kandee <3

guidette11609 said...

Thanks Kandee. You are also loved! Look at how many people you make feel better and you raise their confidence.. including me. I hope we make you feel better also! =)

Kelsea said...

I love you Kandee! Thanks for all of your words you send us, you and your words are more appreciated than you can imagine! Hope you and your "little people" have a great Valentine's Day!!

sweetestorment82 said...

Hi Kandee....

thanks for those wonderful words...and it's true we all have to learn to love oneself before loving others...

emily said...

Hi dear!

This is probably a very weird/crazy idea, but it would be SO cool if you submitted our names into one of those randomizer programs, and whoever won would get to email with you for a while! It would be a great way for you to make good friends right? And I know so many of us would love to be your true friend. SO cheesy I know.. lol oh well!

Elle Sweet said...

I just watched your most recent video as well and it made me teary eyed. Don't listen to the people that say mean things to you. They know they could never be like you or do the things you do so they want to make you hate yourself to bring you down to their level. I never comment on your videos even though I've seen them all but I just felt compelled to chime in with the chorus of "I love yous" and "you're greats." We're just trying to encourage you like you encourage us. :)

Allst4rbab3 said...

Hi Kandee, happy early valentines day to you! i'm going to be having a baby any day now until next week! excited. but i was wondering what quick makeup do i can slap on as soon as i get visitors or for pictures? or is even wearing makeup during labor acceptable? i hate to be so vain but it's my big day :)

Melissa said...

Hey Kandee! Thank you for the inspiration and all the beauty and confidence you bring out in all of us!!! God bless you bless you and grant you serenity and peace of mind!

Giedre said...

''and Kandee thinks I'm amazing!!!!!!''

LOVE it. You are my DIAMOND, Kandee. The most beautiful one.

Yours Giedre. (gianthug)

Shaheen Shine said...

Thanks Kandee, I am going to do this today. Ever since I`ve been saying things like: I have beautiful hair,I have soft,smooth,moisturized,flawless skin I have been feeling happier and more confident then before! I used to feel intimidated by other girls I say because They were skinnier then me, and had longer shinier hair then me and looked better then me in clothes even thought they were wearing sweat pants and t-shirts! Then I had enough and started to really read your blogs and say I am beautiful inside and out. I may not like my weight but I LOVE MY BODY! i`M GONNA SEND YOU SOMETHING FOR V-DAY!

much love Shaheen =)

DiJoy said...

I heart you!

TKOmulatta said...

Very true Kandee....
you have inspired me to buy myself something now :) lol... but seriously everything you write and your positive attitude is so inspiring! <3 ya

xKaseyx86 said...

Hey Kandee i really hope ur feeling better and i hope everything is good with u

CityofPeace said...

That made my day!
Thx Kandee <3

Sira said...

dear kandee
i just watched your last vid and i have been following you since last year and i was sO00 amazed and dazzled by your talent and surprised by your immense generosity of your skills and valuable time and sOOO proud of you for being able to get enuff followers to upgrade and i was all like whooo yay kandee well done i wanna give you a huuuge hug and give you everything and anything you want/need or would like just to make you feel all good(and bright)inside and smile(and yes this was all taking place in my dorm room haha at like 2ish in the morn)- omg your prbbly getting scared now that im some scary lunatic stalker - im really not i just find you really bright...kinda like the sun - you bring sunshine and energy to my life - i never thought id b one of those people to comment or even "follow" someone and yet here i am...(my first comment on the net...EVER...well on a bloggger .. i dont comment on youtubes..)
i really truly with all my heart and soul (and brain power...might as well throw that in there ;) ) appreciate your work, time and efforts. trust me. you have NO clue of the +ve effect you have on people. and i know you know this and i know you've read this a gazillion times. lets make it a gazillion and one =D the people who are hating are hating because they are jealous, they feel down because of smthing or got a bad comment and want to hurt someone in turn. dont read them. simply look at the first couple of words - should it be a -ve one just skip it.
you dont need that in your life. you dont have time for that. all the true legends are famous for not even paying attention to tabloids and such. and im not even talking about movie stars. wasnt it galileo or aristotle or someone who was laughed at for figuring out that the world was round? and he wasnt even sneered at by people he ddnt know. but by people he knew and lived with and worked and ate and all that and check him out now!! nobody remmbrs the peeps who said "poo poo to you galileo you're wrong/idiot/loser/simply nuts" but EVERYone knows who galileo is. one of my favourite stars is angelina jolie. that woman has been through so much and you dont even have to surf the net to find out whats being gossiped about her and so many people are rooting for a break up and i just dont get it. the woman has done nothing to these people but simply put her heart and soul into work and life and living and risked so much of herself being known about(which in this day and age takes major kick ass guts)and yet people just want to tear her down. i put it down to jealousy. not being as pretty, or happy, or talented, or whatver reason or even because of not having the strength and will to do what that person is doing and so out of self hate and revulsion they emit the only thing they can think about - hate, negativity and pain. but you have to remember. whoever THEY are doesnt matter. and most likely famous people take lessons to psychologically prepare and protect themselves.

Sira said...

kandee no one else but you and your family and friends. those of us who do watch and read you know the real you (well i hope its the real you and not some alien/psychopath posing as you ... although if you are an alien hello and well done you pass off as an AMAzing human being and WOW makeup skills dude yeah!!! =D ..just watched the astronauts wife).
i know theres no way of filtering the poo poos who make poo poo comments but hey thats the risk right?
all in all thank you for everything..ive made a lot of changes because of you. you have been a MAJOR +ve push force (although i do have will power and all that but you add a little dazzle which is different and addictive) i know its really very hard for you right now. your reallity may be different from somoeone elses but that doesnt mean its any less important. and i know you know this but there will be a ton of more ups and down - [insert frankie singing "that's life" (someone with intellectual bright pInk smarty pants with glitter on them once reminded me its all about the getting back up and working for/to your dream) i wish i had that sort of money i could use to help solve all your problems.and one of the ways would be to hire someone to filter all the poo poo!! haha or better yet I would do it!!i would freely giveaway my time and effort for you without thinking twice. (in a business sense thats dangerous esp cause TIME IS MONEY (and you must SAVE TIME Not MOney!!!) - because time is essential and its the one thing you cant buy and YOURE time for yourself your kids and your loved ones are VALUABLE you will NEVER get this moment back- spend it on making yourself and your loved ones happy,strong and all the other good stuff - (yeap those were accounting & finance classes in uni and no i am not an accountant or will i ever be one but thats not about you and thats why im here).
YOU ARE beautiful (and not just the materialistic way...although you are that too), amazing, full of shiny-ness, energetic, dynamic, creative, loved, cherished, appreciated, and all the other +ve words there are in thesauruses and dictionaries..the situation might get worse it seems once vultures get a sniff of some meat theyre at it until just bones are left. but look at aj look at the way she wards them off. you are stronger, more creative, more full of life and loved that you know.and you have a bigger effect than you know. just like the butterfly flaps its wings and a hurricane is formed on the other side of the world - you have created a hurricane of love ,strength and happiness, and a new bright perspective of way of life. and for that i thank you xoxo

Kandee,
I can't tell you how much I appreciate your words of wisdom, and passion for what you do. I love your videos and blog. Thank you so much! I just finished my degree and saw your blog about what you did to find jobs. You are an inspiration

Here is my blog if you'd like to check it out:

Kandee, you are absolutely the best! I love watching your videos and reading your inspiring blogs! I make sure to take a few minutes out of my day to come here, it really helps! Much love, blessings, and happiness to you!!

Kala said...

Kandee-
I feel so weird writing a comment on someone's blog who I've never even met. I feel like you are my friend even though I've never met you. I really just love watching all your videos and get really excited when I see you have updated. You are such a wonderful person. Anyway, the reason I wanted leave a comment was to say that I think you would make the GREATEST bachelorette on the show "Bachelor"/"Bachelorette". Have you ever thought about applying to be on the show?? I think you would be so amazing on a show like that. Who knows, maybe you'd find your soul-mate. You should try it out! Love Kala

bkuzimthemommy said...

Hi kandee!

I love watching all your videos! I am not sure if this is the place to make a request but I would like an all natural look...i'm 33 with 3 kids and feeling way down these days because of weight and my self esteem is just really low...I feel likea clown if I wear a lot of make-up or "i'm too old" to be wearing a lot of make-up. I don't have a lot of money but I do have the following mac make-up...any suggestiosn would be great! I have:
studio fix powder+foundation in nc20
shell
shroom
concrete
satin taupe
retro speck
shale
wedge
and i have a rose colored blush that is so old I can't even see the name on the back anymore :( it's blush...something? anyway, I would greatly appreciate a video an a antural look or a vid using what I have...thanks so much :)
