Throwing out trash!
it can be some garbage thoughts..some old, uncool jacket that we once thought was awesome enough, to buy!
I in this case have produced, what seems like hundreds of bags of trash....ha ha ha....things I thought were treasures, things I saved because I was going to make something marvelous out of it....
and sometimes it just takes a little help from someone to encourage you to set yourself free from the garbage...that is weighing is down...
I feel lighter than an empty lipgloss tube.....ha ha ha
But that is how life is....our garbage thoughts, and the garbage thoughts that we've let others put into our little, precious minds....starts cluttering up the place, and soon, we have more garbage that, sweet room for thoughts of our dreams and beauty in our minds!
Time to get out the dumpsters, trash bags, and boxes, and load up all those hopeless thoughts, the harsh words you've heard from others, the trash thoughts of "I can't do-it-ness", "I'm never going to find someone to love", "I'm gonna be alone for the rest of my life", "I don't have what it takes", "I don't look how I wish I could look", "Nothing ever works out for me"....
NOPE! NO! NO MAS!!!...all that is trash talk...and it's goin where it belongs....GARBAGE TOWN!!!
Let's decorate our new spacious minds...cleared of all trash-talk....
and fill it with words of hope, excitement for our futures, and pure, I-can-do-it-ness!!!
DAILY LOVE MISSION: (come join us in doing this today!)
*ask someone what their dream is, and tell them, you're excited for them and that you know they can do it!
*tell yourself, I have an awesome future...and I'm going to have so much fun today, that people are going to want to be a part of whatever I'm doing!
*When I love my life, and I make things fun, someone is going to come into my life and want to join the fun!
*tell yourself, I am going to decorate my mind with happy, hopeful thoughts....
Some people are just alive, they aren't living...
let's get out there today and LIVE!!!
smile, dance, laugh, and treat yourself to some small treasure....
today my small treat was a chocolate sprinkled donut for breakfast...(hee hee hee....haven't had one in ages, and it tasted delishy! On Sunday I usually splurge from my healthier way of eating...and this was it, baby!
huge love, and I have some exciting news for New Yorkers....stay tuned or stay blogged...ha hah a
huge love....and LIVE it up today precious!!!!! xo kandee

Yes i recently cleaned up my room, cause i'll be moving from my parents house soon.... it felt so good after i did it.. it's exactly the same with our thoughts. I love your posts. You are great person :)
Sometimes God gives you what you need at exactly the right time. Thank u for continuing to be ever inspiring. I needed to read something like this tonight.
Your posts have been such an inspiration lately. I have lots of trash that needsto be taken out... but I think I am going to need a U Haul to take care of this mess! Glad to know I am not alone.... thanks! We can conquer the journey together! Thanks. You are so amazing!!!
I just love what you say. Whenever I feel down your words just lift me up! I hope one day I could meet you, you are such a pure soul and an inspirational person. Wish you all the happyness in the world.
And starting from today I'm going to throw the trash out from my heart. :D
Kandee, ur such an amazing inspiration. Im sitting in cold and freezing Denmark but you are still able to warm my heart even though we haven't personally met. That must be such an amazing gift to have. You really have inspirated me to become a better person and a healthier one too.
Have a great day and thank u so much!
Please say you're coming to NY for another GLAMINAR!!!!!!!!!! :)
Yep, getting rid of garbage frees a lot of energy.
By the way you look absolutely gorgeous and happy in that picture.
Love your love missions.
Enjoy your Sunday.
i love this.
Oh, Kandee. You always seem to know the right words to say at the exact right time to say them. I have been needing to throw some "trash" out of my mind for quite some time now. I want to thank you SO much for absolutely everything that you do!!!! You are so tremendous and inspirational. I pray that God blesses you in EVERY single way possible, and he makes every one of your dreams come true!! We all love you with all of our hearts!!!! Let's start LIVIN'! :)
You know what, that is really good to do, as, I was reading the post it really brought up some hard feelings to deal with about my inner talk the thoughts I think about myself and how, I may feel stuck in a box not able to change them but you are so right, Thank you , I need to get out those trash thoughts and make room for loving ones.
you know what at this point of time after reading your blog i wanna live my life
i wanna build hope, i wanna tell myself that things gonna be all-okay, i'll find love, i'll find the beauty of living my life.
Those trashy thoughts that i carried for the longest time somehow refused to leave me alone. :( it's gonna be hard but what's there to lose, i'll give it a try. :)
Kandee, I have been reading your blog for a week now and I must say I am so happy I found it. Somehow you always know exactly what to say, everytime I read a new post from you it seems like it was written just for me. That is awesome.
I just wanted to tell you thank you, and that I think you are amazing and that I love what you do, your blog and your videos.:-))
You have a beautiful spirit and soul and you are beautiful all around!
Much love, Sarah
I took this approach a year ago of "taking out the trash", I got rid of anything that was bringing me down or holding me back be it people or my image and clothing. I found when I did really amazing things happened in my life. By me being more positive I attracted postive people and now have been drama free for a year, so yeah I would say take out the trash today, you'll be astounded at the results...Love You Kandee <3
How funny you posted this because I emailed you about something similar! Thanks :)
hey hi ^^
a happy text again. thank you ❤
Today I made some 'shoulders decorations' (excuse my english, again..) as black sequin ribbons.
That was my little treasure of the day, haha ^^
As soon as it will be so warm enough to change my actual coat for another, I will put them. On my vest or maybe my tee.. will see ^___^
Have a wonderful day, Kandee, and girls !!
I put a picture of the ribbons here, on my blog :
you are great, an inspiration for me =) thank you
Hello Kandee from Singapore,
Yea... sometimes we need to get rid of trashes in order to improve life.. True. I do that all the time when I feel I am being weighed down by certain stuffs (physically and mentally).. After getting rid of it, I felt much better..
Till today I am still doing..
Take care Kandee..
i really think your great kandee. that kind of self-talk makes it hard to get through the day and i should know! :) thank you for writing inspiring things to your followers - shows that you care. Have bestest day - bestest girl. :)
Wow, how do you find all these words kandee?! There awesome! Your an inspiration, you love to spread joy and warmth around.. and it always works with your blogs. I know you have haters who are sending you nasty comments, but just ignore them as im sure that you have more people who love you than hate you..because whats not to love!
My dear Kandee!
God BLESS you for everything you are doing! I LOVE you so much... for all your words, for all the encouragement you bring to me when I read your blog and watch your videos... that are MORE than just beautiful make-up...
Well, I want to start TODAY to throw all the garbage from my life...
"sometimes it just takes a little help from someone to encourage you to set yourself free from the garbage...that is weighing is down..." as you said:-)
P.S.: Good luck for you and with moving in a new home.
Your awesome I have to say. I have tried to watch other videos about makeup whatever.... auuuugghhh i have to have my Kandee!!! I love you babe. My husband says if you were a man he would be jealous. My three boys love you too!! My 15 yr old sat here one night watching all your character vids, you are the new lines we quote, your soooo funny. My 8 yr old wanted to know if Kandee did a vid on how to look like Hanna Montana cause he wanted to dress up like a girl for opposite day at his school. I love that I can let my children watch your videos and I dont have to worry about content like I dont so many other things. My 6 month old love to watch too. Anyway sunshine and sparkles is what I hope for you today. If I could hug you I would :0)
i love your blog posts kandee, they are so fun and inspiring to read :)
Beautiful, Kandee! You are sweet, sweet sweet!!!!
News from NYC? Pleeeeeease tell us soon, I'm going there next Monday!
Kisses from Brazil =)
I think you're going to NY! But I don't live there, so that's a pity...
Anyway, thanks for the good thought, I'm actually going to call someone and tell them something I've been wanting to say :)
Awww this is so sweet! :) And don't tell me you're doing a Glaminar there!!!! COME TO FLORIDA :) I would go see you in a quick minute!!!
What is YOUR dream, Kandee?? You're so wonderful and always thinking of others - I think your Love Mission today should be to love yourself and to treat yourself to a day full of Things-You've-Always-Wanted-To-Do-But-Don't-Have-The-Time-For!! =)
Take care, Kandee!! <3
I love reading your posts, they always seem to put a smile on my face...and I like having a smile on my face.
Thank you for what you do even though you don't know us, it's nice to see you take your time to encourage people to follow their dreams and to be happy.
Thank You, Samantha

Its good to do a little cleansing and fill that space left with wonderful things and thoughts.
Guess what I dream last night...I dreamed that you had your own makeup line :D ... they chose you because you had the most original and fun ideas!
I hope everything is going well and I hope the kids like the new Kandeeland!!
If you need anything...here I am :)
Huge love and hugs
You make me so happy, Kandee! Thank you for lifting me up each and every time I read your blog. Today is the day I'm going to truly start living my life. Sending you lots of hugs!
You have SUCH a wonderful spirit Kandee! Thank you for being YOU.. and inspiring us ALL to be positive in our self talk. Because THAT is really what controls our actions and WE can choose which voice to listen to :-)
awesome as usual....I really love that you are doing SOMETHING.... girls look up to you and you are inspiring us to be better! I started following your blog and watching your videos, and you have influenced so many woman, and the proof is in the comments.
Not enough people try to make a difference in the world, they think that dong little things isnt enough, or that they as just "one person" could never change the world, but you are proving them wrong...all that has to happen is, one girl reads, she's inspired, she spreads the love, then the next and the next and the next...its a pay it forward effect, and its starting with you on this blog!
I can't help but just smile while I'm reading and watching, because you darlin' are amazing, you glow from the inside out and your beautiful happy personality just oozes from you while you talk lol Can't help but be happy while I read! You have such a gift and thank you for using it to help others!
And of course, thank you for the makeup tips, those are always helpful too ;)
Kandee, you're grand! I love everything about you,my treat is waking up and reading your blog with my daughter over breakfast! Latley ive been dealing with situations with "what would Kandee do"! You truly are an inspiration. My idol always! Much love Kandee keep doing exactally what you're doing! xxx
Throwing out trash is liberating. It's good for our soul and other things. Sometimes that trash is a certain person, unfortunately, that sounds rude but it's true. YOU have to make youself happy and like you've said before, you need to surround yourself with good people who push you to be better and support you 110% :) and like I'VE said so many times before, we need more people like YOU in this world! :) *hugs*
wish you were moving to Dallas :) You deserve great things Kandee. I love you and all your videos.
hey kandee, watch this :)
You always seem to know exactly what to say! Thanks for such inspiring words, they really help me out!
Also, this is sort of random but there's a song I think you might like, it puts me in a great mood instantly and it might work for you too, it's called "Magic" by Mozella.
So true, i've been doing this today. Sorting out my daughters room and alot of my clothes. I feel so much better for doing it. Mentally too. Your blog is always so positive,you raise my spirits. Your awsome. good luck with your move.
Your new fan - Jodie Monroe :)
Just wanted to say that you are so talented! I just wrote a post about your great videos and make-up skills on my blog at www.AbsolutelyDelightful.com.
Keep those great tutorials coming! Thanks!!!!
Yes, hopeless thoughts need to be thrown out with the trash but not the uncool jackets. Uncool jackets dream of a better future as well: they long to be upcycled into something new and cool. Like pot holders, if pot holders can ever be considered "cool". Right? :D
I see how your make up is always soo beatuiful!
Well I am indeed of serious new make up.
My budget is $300.00 Any Suggestions!
I love all your videos! :)
Hi Kandee, I don't know if you read your comments, but if you could please reply to my message on myspace, or on youtube, I'd really appreciate it. I promise you won't be wasting your time.
It is so wierd how ive been doing exactly that!!!! Through divorce, kids, and moving a million times...you somehow accumulate so much STUFF!!!! ANd you just have to kinda clean it all out without looking at it lol! I am very sentimental, so I also needed help with getting rid of some stuff! My sister helped me with throwing it all away! Stuff I forgot I had but fell in love with once I saw it again! But if I forgot about it, I need to let it go!! And I feel like I can breath now! Like my allergies cleared up haha! I hate moving!!! Ive done it way to many times!! But after the move and after you get settled its like a whole new beginning..and thats so exciting!!! :D
I didint know you were moving!!!!!!
Thanks 4 being who you are! You're like a balm on my little heart! sending you LUV!!! and a virtual pair of strong arms to help you out with packing of all your stuff and also put those garbages bags on the roadside!! haha!!
and if you feel like it invite me in your ''adventure in kandee land'' blog! ;)

Hey Kandee! Been a long time viewer of your's and just wanted to say YOUURRRR GR-REEAAAT! (sounding like tony the tiger haha....) Thank you so much for all your words of wisdom, and your great inspiration. Hope you get some time to post more of your lovely vids!! -Kelsey Scott
Kandee, I am new to reading your blog but I've been watching some of your Youtube videos, and I just want to say thank you for brightening my day with your joyfulness and smiles. As well, you've inspired me to get back to using my self control in what I eat, because the road I'm heading down now is not a healthy one, and you've encouraged me to start taking much better care of my skin than I have been. Thanks! I hope that you have an amazing week!!!
I used to love reading your posts on adventuresinkandeeland blog (and may have even commented once before)... and it looks as though its gone or you have to be invited... if its still ongoing, please invite- you are such an inspiration in motherhood!!
Hi Kandee! I love your blog and facebook...it truly gives me a smile everyday you post. Your tutorials are also always so amazing!!!! I saw someone put a stunning Leona Lewis pic on your facebook fan page and I would love to see that look and the look on her album cover ECHO, it has bold red lips and golden eyes. Both are so beautiful could you please do them both!!!! It gives a hard working teacher some much needed adult, girl time (that almost sounded naughty, but absolutely not meant that way!) Back to grading papers and thank you for all you give to the people that follow you! :)
could you do a post about makeup brushes? what we should look for? whats the diff b/w synthetic and natural? how the hairs should be cut so they don't irritate pores? your fav brands? etc?
I love getting rid of old stuff. It is such a huge weight thrown off your shoulders. It's exciting to bring all new things into your life so I definitely believe in giving/throwing away what is old because to someone it may be their own new and exciting thing :) Love you Kandee thanks for being you love :)

Kandee i haven't read yor blog only for 2 days and today I had sent you a letter, beofore reading yor blog.... Kandee you are moving out? Will you have access to your mail box, for next two weeks? Hope, YES:)
Thanks Kandee for your positivity! I love the message you want to send to the world. You touch more people than you know. Love, Kala
Thank you ! I need to remodel my mind :) .. My treasure today is reading this ... I have so much things everyone else wants me to do today. It's a breath of fresh kandee air :)
Kandee i wish i had your motivation with food and being healthy! Generally i am but sometimes my sweet tooth gets the better of me :( Good advice though!
Hi dear Kandee!
I must admit that there must be an invisible link between me and you because everytime I have a problem you find exactly the right words to cheer me up. Nowadays, I have some problems with my ex husband and I'm about to get divorced so it's really hard for me and I 've had a lot of doubts about my future " will I be able to meet someone else?" etc and you made me realize that I must get rid of all this garbage, once for all! Thank you so so so much Kandee! MERCI BEAUCOUP MA CHERIE.
This made my day!!! Your positive message is inspiring :)
Dear Kandee, I'm a depressed person. Today was a reeeeeally boring and sad, full of crying, sitty day. So I read your post. :) (I confess that I read it a lot of times. :) You make me feel so fresh and new. I really wanted to thank you for always being so excited, and smiling, and energizing, and happy, and cool (ok, the list goes on and on).
You make a huge difference in my life, even though I don't know you personally. And I really care about you. :) You always put a smile on my face.
With love, Carolina.
kandee you look so beautiful in your picture there!
thank you for all your wise words of wisdom, sometimes its just what i need to here God bless you
you are so lovely! could you do the kesha blah blah blah blue glittery makeup? AND hair? her hair is so crazy and fierce!
hi kandee! i just want to let you know that I've been following your makeup videos for a while now and since then I have received sooooo much compliments on my makeup - which you taught me how to do through your videos!! I want to say thank you for taking the time out of your day to share your talents and truly have help me feel more confident in everything that I do. You've got an awesome personality and spirit because I always feel happy after watching your videos. I hope you keep on posting more videos and I wish you lots of success in the things that you do. - chao from new jersey
Kandee, you're a wonderful person. I absolutely love/adore you. I was so bummed out today (don't know why! one of those days) until I read through your blog... I love how uplifting and beautiful you are, inside and out. You're an inspiration.
How about a date Kandee?
It's strange how garbage sometimes takes the form of things other ppl in your life want from you. Although most of the time they are crossing a lot of boundaries to ask those things, everyone forgets and expects things of others that isn't really for them to decide.
Right now I'm doing such time consumingly silly things that everyone else does while I really need to go in another direction. I am slicing large parts of my life and tossing it all into garbage bags just so that the people around me who don't believe in individualism can feel a bit better. I am so tired pushing my life back when I know what I need and what I have to do. And it is hard when I don't have a family who backs me up and has as much faith in me as some other families do.
i'm not quite sure you will ever understand just how lovely you are. :) i was very down in the dumps today and you made it a lil better. thanks!
You're a very amazing woman. But I know you hear that a lot, doesn't make it any less true though. Thanks for finding a way to cheer me up without even knowing me.
finding your uplifting posts very helpful recently. I always know I can get a burst of positive energy coming to your blog. Keep doin' what you do girl...and know you're helping at least me daily. Thanks :)
thanks Kandee :)
I cannot get onto your 'adventures in Kandeeland blog anymore tho :( have you stopped it?
As I read this and snacked on Chex Mix...it gave me a boost. I have a website where I create comics...I started to feel very lazy and having that "I can't do this" emotion when realizing I was getting behind in my work since I just started school again. Thanks Kandee. I really needed that.
I have never blogged before or written any comments on blogs. But I wanted to do this because I want you, Kandee, to know how much I love your videos and pictures. Watching your videos on youtube of how to put on make up and how to just feel pretty and girly has really lifted my spirits. I have had a really tough year and I lost all self confidence and didn't feel like I even cared to take care of myself anymore. But your videos and advice has rejuvenated me. I want to go out and do fun things and I want to make myself feel pretty again. And it's because of you! Thank you so much for everything. Keep the videos going. It means a lot of us. :)
I was looking at movie previews on youtube the other night and your video "how to do a smokey eye look" popped up and caught my eye and I thought you were really sweet PLUS i used a few of your tips :) but I love your optimism, I'm definitely a new fan and will continue to be checking your blog out in my free time. I was having a pretty lousy day today and this made me feel soooo much better! You seem like an awesome person, thanks! :)
Thanks! This is exactly what I needed to read this morning. I'm at a very transitional point in my life, and have needed to rid myself of "garbage" of all sorts. In fact, I was putting off getting started by reading this blog my daughter sent me. Time to get it done!
