tutu's, tiara's, and a tricycle....

this is just a sneek peek of the shoot we did last night from 6pm- til 1am! It was B-A-N-A-N-A-S!!! Wait to you see the real ones!!! I can't even show you all of them!!!! IT was like Willy Wonka meets the 80's!
here's some sneek peek pics....
My friend, (we both started our careers out at the same time...with the weirdest job....watch the youtbe video that i'll be posting from the shoot...where we talk about it..hill-air-ree-us!!) MARC CARTWRIGHT. click here to see his site: www.marccartwright.com
and find him on facebook here: http://facebook.com/marccartwright, he took my photos...and man, what a a shoot we had!

We're gettin' crimpy! We're gettin' crimp-ay!
  Gettin' my hair crimped (A crimping iron hasn't bedazzled my hair since prolly' 1991!)
Thelma Macias from Barracuda Salon on Melrose, gave me the most awesome hair!
If you have a photo shoot or anything where you need awesome hair..call Barracuda and ask for her:
(323) 852-7179
the ever fabulous COSMO, from Melrose (from my shopping videos at his store SPEED on Melrose) styling me...he is so fab in his sequin leggings! He made the corset I'm wearing, and let me borrow all the clothes from his store! Thank you sooooo much Cosmo, mwaaah!!!!
you can have him make you fab too...call him at the store:
(323) 655-8498 and ask for Cosmo (he's so fun!)
 
 fixing my "tiara"...how amazing is this jewelry...Cosmo's friend (and now mine too!), made the jewelry! Fergie buys her jewelry, and Rihanna (who I love), just shot the cover of a magazine wearing her jewelry...check it out at: www.glynnethbjewelry.com
I flowerin' love all her jewelry...I screamed with joy at each piece she showed me!!!

And my sweet friend, Kymberly Newble, gave me a "kandee-bubble-gum-ice-cream-parlor" manicure....call her if you're in LA, she even will come to your house...and it's not crazy expensive like you'd think.....thanks Kym!!!
call the Warren Tricomi Salon and ask for Kym: 323-651-4545 (you might even see a celebrity or 2)
or find her on FACEBOOK (click here)

my zoolander!
after we finished this shoot at 1am....found the man with the keys to my car in a parking lot in downtown LA, loaded up my car with all our stuff, dropped of Thelma, ate my second meal of the day (from some delivery service...ravioli in pesto sauce and 3/4 of a chocolate mousse dessert), checking emails and emailing everyone about today's shoot...I went to sleep at about 4am....I woke up to slamming doors, someone rehearsing for their live music show in their hotel room, and all night long, I can hear someone in a room next to me...SNORING...so stinkin' LOUD...all this started at 7:15am!!! I haven't been able to sleep...if I hear one more cleaning cart roll over the tiles outside my room door!!!! ha ha ha ha ha
I have to go shower and wash all my "crimping" out...boo hoo hooo!

be bold, be fierce, be fabulous...and don't let anyone rain on your style parade!
If you like it, wear it with confidence....dress with a purpose- to be uniquely you...
walk with a purpose...command those steps as everywhere you walk becomes your runway....
smile and people....and make them smile back...
shine the love of your heart with the world....it needs it!

huge love and even bigger smiles and hugs....the Crimpette

This looks like the funnest photo shoot EVER. Tutus make everything better! You're so gosh darn cute! And I adore that manicure. I'll have to attempt that on myself since I'm not in the LA area.

Thanks for always encouraging us to wear what makes us happy, Kandee! I can't tell you how much your words have given me confidence in myself. I wish everyone was as carefree and fun as you. Seriously. Your blog is like a ray of sunshine in my life! Haha- there's a little corny-ness for you. :) xooxoo

Crimptastic! LOL I think the last time I crimped my hair was also in the early 90's! There is a picture of me somewhere with crimped hair in a side pony tail, frosted pink lippy, baby blue eyeshadow and FAR to much blush! (cringe)

Love the manicure!

Sarah said...

Kandee, You are so amazing words can not describe how inspirational you are! Lets just say I have been catching up on all of your videos since 2:00 o'clock today and right now its about 9:00! haha I am unbelievably fortunate to have stumbled across your videos they are so uplifting! For years, I have been having problems with make up and I'm still unsure on how to really make the best look for me but with your videos I'm really trying to learn and they are for sure helping! I just finished watching a video about your contest held last year during the summer about a complete make over/just hanging out with you and I really appreciate you doing things like that for people like us, I hope you do another one so I can get in on the action! HAHA But anyways just wanted to stop by and say don't stop what you are doing because its apparent you have touched so many lives, Including mine!

Love,
Sarah :)
