friday...weekly wrap up!

the weekly wrap up....

i made a video for a 60's Twiggy Look....and got to play around with my blondie wigs...
i made a leopard print nail video....
and some other fun ideos I still need to edit!
this was me with blonde hair.....for real...ha ha ha
and last night, me and my little people...made cupcakes to celebrate that 13 years ago, Jordan was born!!!!
we are going to party down for his birthday tonight...we started it out with birthday wishes written with soap on his bathroom mirror this morning before we drove to school! (we were supposed to go to the dollar store and buy all kinds of balloons to fill his bathroom...but our cupcake baking took longer than we thought...we had lots of sprinkles on the floor...due to my little helpers...ha ha ha)
if you wanna make my cupcakes...watch this:



yum!!!!

oh....and I have a special discount-surprise... VANITY GIRL HOLLYWOOD mirrors, because Maxine said she loves Kandee FANS!!!!



Hot off the presses! You heard it hear FIRST my beloved fans. I know some of you were bummed to hear that you didn't win the Vanity Girl Pink Starlet ... (unless your name is Chrissy Metcalf or Callie Wood in which case, CONGRATS! We're Starlet Sisters).

Well, Maxi over at Vanity Girl Hollywood went to her investors (at the request of Kandee FanJennifer Shepyeta ) for a Kandee Fan discount. Afterall, even though Maxi founded the brand, we ALL have people we have to answer to. So here's the deal, she was able to get a 10% discount for my lovely fans.

Here are the deets:

1. You have to order over the phone. Call toll free 800 416 3961 between 6 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. PST.

2. The discount is good ONLY until 4:00 p.m. on March 2, 2010. She was told that the sale could only last a week, but she realized that a lot of Vanity Girls don't get paid until the 1st -- so she got the date extended. But that's it ladies! It's their first sale ... and it's just for us!!

3. They only take credit cards.

4. The discount is good for any of their items. I personally love my Pink Starlet -- but choose what you like.

5. Oh yeah -- hello, the most important part -- you have to tell them "I'm a Kandee Fan and I'd like my discount!"

I know this may be a $$ stretch for some of you. But here's the deal. They manufacture in the US and they are based in Hollywood. They use commercial grade, photography-studio quality stuff. (any other things you want add here about why you like it).

And here's a little math for you:

1. Regular price $269
2. With the Kandee discount: $242.10 (including shipping, and did you see the cute box?) NOTE: Cali girls will have to pay sales tax of course.
3. Now divide that over one year (and you will use it EVERYDAY - its like 66 CENTS A DAY.

Finally, this is a Girl Power company. I'm all about supporting other women.
click here to see all the glam-tastic vanities!!!

I am off to go buy some last minute birthday goodies...
the sun is shining, our hearts are beating, and love is blooming in our hearts...
do something fun this weekend...something to treat your heart to a little "happy break"...
remember, no matter how hard our lives may seem....we are alive! As long as our hearts are beating..we can share love, lift someone's spirits, even if we are feeling down, sometimes the best thing to do is smile at someone, cheer them up....the love and cheer will boomerang back to our hearts too!

On a SPECIAL note about an angel, Cara Lee:

I want to send all my love to Cara Lee's family and friends, she was a beautiful girl inside and out, she was born, june 23 1989 passed away on feb 14 2010, she was only 20, and said I was her idol (I feel so honored to hear that!)...and her life was taken by a drunk driver on Valentine's day...my heart goes out to all those who are missing her right now! I bet God is rejoicing that he has one of his angels back in heaven! I'm sure her smile and all her work with kids, left a lasting impression on a lot of hearts! And her love will live on inside everyone's heart's, that love her.....she will always have a place in my heart...

Reading the email about Cara, made me realize just how much we need to treasure each day, and realize that today, no matter how many things seem to "clutter" our day with "un-fun" or hard things...that we need see the big picture...
we are alive..we can love, we can feel hugs, we can tell people we love them (it's not a bad thing..people are so scared to say they love people..when love is the greatest, most needed things in the world!)...and life is not just about the hard things that comes our way....but it is a gift and a chance to face all the hardships in life with an attitude that says, I'm gonna get through this, I'm not going to let this ruin me, I'm gonna be stronger and wiser when I get through this.

I hope we all live with more thankfulness today..rejoice in today, let your heart smile more...and feel more...and my happiness swirl through your day...may we celebrate today, in Cara's honor!

I love you all...huge love, kandee

My little brother Johns 13th birthday is today too! Unfortunately it will be a difficult birthday for him this year, because its the first year our Dad won't be around (he passed away from cancer in September). But, we are gonna do all we can to celebrate his special day, and make it as happy as possible!
I love reading your blog so much, you have so many positive things to say, and it really makes me think about my own life and how i handle my day-to-day things. Gotta keep your head up high! lots of love, Angela!

Michael said...

mander said...

VanityGirl said...

Thanks for sharing the hot news Kandee -- I thought it only fitting that you should be the one to officially share it xx

Happy Birthday to Jordan!

And Cara, I hope it brings your loved ones a little peace that so many people are thinking of you and them. Say "hi" to my Mom in heaven :) I'll ask her to show you around.

xoxo - Maxi

Laura said...

Oh God - I just went thru a roller coaster of emotions... I loved your twiggy inspired look and can't wait to see the video and try and recreate... I then got excited about the mirror and even called and bought one before finishing reading the rest... My heart is broken for that poor girl who had her life cut short by a drunk driver... I am so sorry to her Family and friends. Kandee - I hope you know how special you are to have been part of someones dreams and aspirations as a young woman.. Please continue to give positive advice to all the girls and women like myself.. God Bless!!!!

Thank you for taking the time to share kind words from your beautiful heart.

Dolly said...

Many happy returns of the day Jordon!!! Have a blast!!

Anna said...

Woohoo! Now comes the hard part: Convincing the hubby I need it. Dundundunnnnnn...

@Angela I know how that goes...today is my mom's birthday, she would have been 58. She died 10 years ago in March, and my brother's birthday was 11 days after that. :/ Glad to hear you're going make your brother's day as happy as possible; here's to hoping all negative, unhappy thoughts and memories are blocked and only good shines through. :)

Also: poor Cara, may she rest in peace. I hate drunk drivers, there is no reason for anyone to have to drive drunk. None. at. all. I hope whomever did it rots in jail thinking about their stupid mistake for a long long time.

Miss Jessica said...

you are such an incredibly positive woman i love it! happy birthday to your son (i think he's your son) and the part about Cara made me tear up. i realllllly want a vanity mirror and so i might have to get one now that there's a discount! I love reading your blog and watching your videos and I cant wait to make those cupcakes -- i wrote it all down! thanks kandee much love! xx

Penny said...

Just ran across one of your videos on another site and I have been all night going from one to another, and now to your blog. You are awesome! I am going to follow your adventures, you are a special person. Happy Birthday Jordan, you sure have a fun mom!

Charity said...

Yay! Happy 13th Jordan! :D :D 13 is such a great age (for the kids at least, I hear its a bit hectic for the parents ;D )!


I'm overseas so I wish there were more stuff avaliable for international shipping. All the good stuff only ship in the US and Canada and sometimes the UK (and I really love my Urban Decay which just won't go international :( )



I send my thoughts out to Cara's family. When I was younger, my best friend and her whole family died in a car accident and recently my friend's sister was killed by a drunk driver too. When they go so young and so suddenly, it is so much harder to get through.

Treasure each day everyone!


Oh! And I almost forgot! Although I think your darker hair is way cooler, you are so crazy beautiful as a blonde, just love it! Its amazing how you can suit any hair colour as long as you change your look accordingly. That's why makeup is so amazing :P
Kandee- you're like a godsend to women everywhere ;)

sWHYTE_x said...

Well first of all...
WOW! you suit blonde hair!
Second of all..
I've been watching your videos and following your blog for about two weeks now, and you've completly opened my eyes. I suffer from depression and I'm always on the verge of giving up, but reading your blogs and watching your videos on youtube cheers me up and makes me want to keep going, knowing I'll turn out stronger in the end. You've really changed my life to be honest, your the one person whos made me see a new light. Thank you soooo much Kandee, I really mean it :)

Rainbow said...

Great look!
looking forward to the tutorial video...

May she R.I.P.

niea999 said...

oh, I really d'like to live in US right now, to order that beauty !!

But.. what you writed about this girl, Cara.. she was so young ! I believe in God but sometimes it's just too sad to think.. to not ask "why ?" I'm so soryr for her family and friends.. rest in peace, lovely girl..

bryseana said...

It broke my heart to read about Cara. Just from her picture, she seemed like a fun loving, beautiful, and sweet girl. I hope her family and friends can find comfort in each other.

nestleepresley said...

Dear Kandee...

I have a very good feeling that youre not going to approve this comment, and it doesnt really matter...This is meant for YOU, not everyone...

Ive been subscribed to ur youtube vids since almost the very beginning, and it saddens me to say, Im no longer a Kandee supporter... U used to be sweet and genuine, but youve totally SOLD OUT... It seems like ur advertising something in each blog... Youve started asking for "donations"... Youve brought too much drama into what was supposed to be "KANDEELAND"... Why must everything be a pity party? Ur a single mother of 3 kids, yet ur 2 youngest arent even in ur custody... U make it seem like you want everyone's sympathy for having a kid while still in school... NOT HIGHSCHOOL...U were at least 18! That's an adult, Kandee... When u have kids, THEYRE ur #1 priority...It sickens me to read all the news on Jordon being home alone numerous times and now his truancy?!...I didnt want to believe what people were saying about u being flakey, manipulative, and deceiving, but Im starting to put 2 and 2 together and realize they are right... Its sad that U have absolutly no shame in hinting to get what u want... U tell people not to care what others think, but u want all ur KandeeFans to think ur something u truely arent... BooHoo Kandee...Grow up...ur kids need a mom, not a friend...I cant believe I wasted so much time on u and ur videos...Shame on u, Kandee... Shame on u....

Sincerely,
No Longer a Fan...

VaidaG said...

Kandee you look really good with blonde hair :)
I'm really glad, that i found you this summer ;) We all sometimes need a kick to go further. Someone to lift us up. You're just a ray of sunshine in my life :)) You are real person not someone from tv screen with management who allways says to the star that we adore how to act and what to say. Please never leave us :))

Kristy said...

You are beautiful inside and out. Thanks Kandee for being you ! Love the blonde hair. Cant wait for the video.. thanks for the smiles. Kristy

earth said...

YAY!! Happy late birthday to Jordan! :) The ladies will be all over him soon!

I really wish I could afford a vanity! They are so cute and I want one so bad! :(

That is awful about Cara! How tragic! :( Her family and friends will remain in my thoughts and prayers! :( But you are so right, we need to treasure each day as if it were our last, because we never know, it might be! Thank you so much for this update. I needed it so bad!

mrs.adrienneK said...

you are the awesome! that is all! <3

AndieSee said...

cara and her family, you're in my thoughts.

CindyLu said...

Hello Kandee,
I have to start by saying that I am Cara's cousin and I had the honor of showing my Aunt & Uncle (Cara's parents) your website and the amazing words you shared about Cara on your blog. I can not begin to tell you how much this has ment to our family!! More than you can ever imagine. We all sat around the laptop and watched you video about making cupcakes...and totally got why Cara loved you so much! I left a post for Chris (her friend who wrote into you) as well. Telling him how much this all ment to us. Cara would just be over the moon about all of this. She loved doing make-up and on any given weekend night all her girlfriends would be sitting on her bed waiting for there turn for Cara to do their make-up for the night. May God truly bless you for doing this and know that you have won us over as fans as well!!
Thank you so much, this was amazing!
Cindy <3
