a day in the life...

outfit of the day:
white Hanes men's tank top
pants -old pants from urban outfitters (got them like 6 years ago)
boots- Miz Mooz
black shredded things- no name things from Marshall's
purse- (the melie bianco leopard bag)
I found this awesome girl, Cardi Beutler, at the Melrose Trading Post today, that made the most amazing feather earrings!
I love them, and she makes them from feathers that weren't from birds that were killed for their feathers...she was so sweet and she hand makes them! Love them..if you want one contact:
Cardi at, tel her Kandee told you about them! You'll love them!!!
this is my new best feather-friend earring!

I've been Ray-banned from wearing these!
(i took this picture to send to my sister...this is exactly what my mom looked like circa 1986!)

Below, i fell in love with these benches...this sweetest man, makes them by taking different chairs and making them into one bench! The colors were like candy, and I would use them as seating all over, if I could fit them in my suitcase! ha ha ha ha
(if you live in the LA area and want one, go the Melrose Trading Post on sundays, and he is there! Tell him Kandee said hi! He's so nice, you just want to hug him, like a big teddy bear!)

this was my favorite chair-bench, i wanted to eat that color green! I would love this on my porch....or in my enchanted garden patio, that doesn't exist yet, except for in my head!
my mom in the dressing room at Forever 21!

and it wouldn't be a blog post without a self portrait from my ever-ready iphone! (and my twirl at a Forever 21 dressing room shot!)

mama leaving Forev 21...

i was enchanted by the "water bottle" flower display in the window of the Anthropologie's jam-packed with painted and cut water bottles...i love this recycled art!
me and my precious mama at The Grove, ...i had such a funtastic day with her...she is my best friend...and I will treasure this day forever! I love you Mama!!! My mom has called me "sunshine" since I was little, because she said I was her little sunshine, but she is really the sun to my whole world!!!
I love is now after 2am, so much for trying to go to bed early...typed from the late-night blogger.....ha ha ha...huge love, kandee

Kandee, Your Momma is so beautiful and so are you! I'm sorry to hear that you cannot post anymore pictures of your babies... But I'm happy I already got a chance to see their gorgeous faces, your little girl is stunning!!! Just like her Mom and Grandma!

I hope that right now you are sound asleep in dreamland, you always post how tired you are and I worry that you are not getting enough sleep! I also worry about all the stress and stupidity you have to deal with about the court. I would love to be able to send you all the money in the world to help pay your lawyer fees but I am also struggling to make ends meet. Instead, I am going to hope and pray for you and send you all the positive vibes I can to help you get through everything. I believe in Karma and that all the good that you put in the universe will come back to you. You are the closest thing to a saint that I have ever seen and I know that all the best things in the world are coming your way! I am so happy that you are a part of my life and I want to say thank you for being so wonderful!

Hi Kandee! What a great post! Glad to see you have so much fun with your Mom for day!.. Love the water bottle flowers! I might have to try to make a few myself! They look like they would catch the light beautifully in nice, brightly-lit window!.. Oh, and love those glasses too! My daughter laughs at the ones I used to wear,very similar, "circa" 1983! Ha! Ha! ~tina

Bella said...

Wow, you and your mom look so much alike ... precious!!! :)

Unknown said...

aww you are absolutely adorable hun! Love ya random posts :) They always make me happy! And those benches are seriously innovative :D

lots of love ♥

Tenns Reid said...

Its uncanny how much you look like your Mom. You all's relationship reminds me of the one I have with my Mom, except I don't look as much like her as you look like your Mom. My Mom is literally my bestfriend, even when she's being more of a "Mom" and getting on to me about being healthy and such, than being my friend. Kudos to mother/daughter bestfriends!

Fatima said...

Your relationship is so much like my Mom and me!!! I always had fun shopping with my Mom and spending the day doing things we wouldn't normally do!!!

Anonymous said... love your mom so much...i love the sunshine comment you made about her...its sincer and beautiful...:)

queenopina said...

♥ you kandee! Thanks for being a daily ray of sunshine! ☺

Valeria Tennyson said...

Love the pictures. I miss my mom so much (she is in Brazil and I live in Seattle :-(
I do go back home once a year to spend time with her, but it isn't enough/
Love you Kandee

Layne Street said...

This was a great post, Kandee! I appreciate the way you talk about your mom and seem to bring out a really fun and bright side of her. Well done!

Shelby Renae said...

Aw, looks like you had such a fun time! I would absolutely love to hang out with you one day! I love going to trading posts, farmer markets, all of those little places on the streets. And of course Forever21! What girl isn't in love with that place? ;) Thanks for staying up late just to keep us updated on your life! You and your mama are so cute together! Hugs from Montana. <3

mike said...

A Snail's Tale said...

wow you and your mom look so much alike!!! both gorgeous women.

Love you Kandee, you're awesome in every possible & imaginable way!

Ms. Wedgie said...

Wowsers!! Your mom is beautiful and she looks just like you! It's always rude to ask how old a lady is (so I won't) but you guys look more like sisters than mom and daughter!

Keep smiling :)


Thyda said...

Mommas are the best! I miss mine a lot!

Unknown said...

Heyyy Kandee girl!
I just want to tell you for once that I really admire you for being the wonderful person you are! I always check in YouTube if you posted yet another exciting video from which your "fans" can be closer to you as if you were right next to us, not thousands of miles away. I guess you are a true inspiration for many many girls out there and you bring some more joy, happiness and a big smile to a lot of people's days. So I just wanna say that I really appreciate you and I think you have something of a heroine - you are a really busy woman with quite some issues (as we could probably notice from your posts) but still you take the little spare time you have just to brighten the days of others (whom you might not even know personally)! Awesome job! May the sun never stop shining for you because you have made my day so many times lately when I was down. You are a true gift, you have the rare ability to combine your skills with your witty humour and all of your terrific YOU, and I envy everyone who gets to be around you. I wish I could know you better. :) Never change girl, you're the best. Your whole attitude, style, creativity, all of your wonderful personality is super special! You're my favorite person/guru on YouTube but you are waaay more than that. There should be more people like you and the world would be much better - but you're already on a good way by spreading this spirit via the internet. I can proudly say that I even changed my style a little due to your great inspiration and I got a lot of compliments since! ;)
You might have been told all this a lot of times, but then I just confirm it because it's true :P
I hope you have the best day ever you deserve that!) and I know you will have the strength to overcome problems life sometimes brings!
Sooo, I said enough :P hope you read it Kandee! :-)
Huuuuuuge LOVE + KISSES xoxo all the way from Germany :-***

Kandee, you are the sweetest person ever.Really, you are !

Michael said...

Your mom is so beautiful! I see where you get it from!

I UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE MOM THING!!! My mom is my whole world, too. I love her so so so so much. My niece used to say she loved her mom "in bits and pieces" instead of to bits and pieces so I say it all the time, LOL! I love you in bits and pieces, Kandee!

gloria said...

FaithHopeLove said...

Hi Kandee, Thanks for sharing your mama and you photos. you both look amazing. i thought about you today when i saw this quote - you may have seen it before - its reaaly more of a poem i guess -
i thought you would love it.

I Believe...
That just because two people argue,
It doesn't mean they don't love each other.
And just because they don't argue,
It doesn't mean they do love each other.
I Believe...
That we don't have to change friends if
We understand that friends change.
I Believe....
That no matter how good a friend is,
they're going to hurt you every once in a while
and you must forgive them for that.
I Believe...
That true friendship continues to grow,
even over the longest distance.
Same goes for true love.
I Believe...
That you can do something in an instant
That will give you heartache for life.
I Believe....
That it's taking me a long time
To become the person I want to be.
I Believe...
That you should always leave loved ones with
Loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
I Believe....
That you can keep going long after you think you can't.
I Believe....
That we are responsible for what
We do, no matter how we feel.
I Believe...
That either you control your attitude or it controls you.
I Believe...
That heroes are the people who do what has to be done when it needs
to be done, regardless of the consequences.
I Believe....
That my best friend and I can do anything or nothing and have the best time.
I Believe....
That sometimes the people you expect to kick you when you're down
will be the ones to help you get back up.
I Believe...
That sometimes when I'm angry
I have the right to be angry,
But that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
I Believe....
That maturity has more to do with what types of experiences you've had
And what you've learned from them and less to do with how many
birthdays you've celebrated.
I Believe....
That it isn't always enough,
to be forgiven by others.
Sometimes, you have to learn to forgive yourself.
I Believe...
That no matter how bad your heart is broken
the world doesn't stop for your grief.
I Believe....
That our background and circumstances
may have influenced who we are,
But, we are responsible for who we become.
I Believe...
That you shouldn't be so eager to find
Out a secret. It could change your life Forever.
I Believe....
Two people can look at the exact same
Thing and see something totally different.
I Believe...
That your life can be changed in a matter of
Hours by people who don't even know you.
I Believe....
That even when you think you have no more to give,
When a friend cries out to you -
you will find the strength to help.
I Believe...
That credentials on the wall
do not make you a decent human being.
I Believe...
That the people you care about most in life
are taken from you too soon.

'The happiest of people don't necessarily
have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.

'Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass --
it's about learning how to dance in the rain.' ~ Unknown

As you always say, have a great day, love and hugs...

Kandee thanks to you and your mom for making some great both are so lucky to have each other and love the same things...

Blonde Mafia said...

I LOVE the new hair cut/style!!!
Can you post some more pictures of it and show it off a little more?
I was thinking you got a lot of it cut off.

Do you have any tips on letting you hair grow out besides be patient...haha? Like maybe different styles or ways to wear it while it grows out.
Leaving it alone and not cutting it is the hardest things to do.

How did you get past the growing out stage and not cut it?
