Oh sweet cupcakes and Glaminar.....

I shared my love of cupcakes, with red velvet cupcakes from DOTS in Pasadena, red chocolatey cake with cream cheese icing! I didn't even get to taste one! ha ha ha
a little view of, what was one of the most amazing days of my life!
 
me in the middle of our "group shot", with some of the amazing girls that stayed til' the end to talk with me, share their stories and experience of the day with me....I had gone through so many tissues crying with these precious hearts!

I had the most incredible day....I cried with everyone, laughed with everyone, hugged and loved everyone...and my heart just felt like it grew 10 sizes bigger for taking everyone into my heart...sharing not only my make-up knowledge and tips and business necessities, but taking in each person's heart!
I will NEVER be the same after this!
This was the  BEST 1 YEAR "GLAM-A-VERSARY" of the GLAMINARS!

I lost my voice that night after all the talking I did, but I gained more love! Thank you to everyone who was a part of such an amazing experience!!!

I tried to type a blog post last night, but I have only been getting about 3 hours of sleep a night preparing for the glaminar, that I fell asleep with my computer on my lap in bed...with nothing but a POST title typed in that said...."I am sooooo tired"! ha ha ha ha

I promise I will type a better post about the GLAMINAR & IMATS later, but I'm off to another doctor appointment....I've already had 3 yesterday for my leg...It was very, very swollen after the GLAMINAR weekend! ha ha ha....But I have an awesome new silicone thing, that goes over my scar that will help it look a little "nicer"...it's the same thing that burn patients wear. I love it already, my scar doesn't hurt so much when my pants or leggings rub against it! Hooray!

Off to another doctor appointment! I love you all...! Each set of beautiful eyes that are reading this...feel the love I am sending to your heart!

REMEMBER: you're more beautiful than you know, more talented than you think, and more LOVED than you can imagine!

Have a beautiful day, filled with more smiles, more love, and more happiness in your step...no matter what happens or goes wrong...remember...there's a reason, there's hope, and I believe in you!!!
huge love from your one and only, kandee

You are so special to all of us. We love you very much. I was a day full of emotions. Take care and hope your legs feels better!!!!

Natasha said...

Kandee, you are so incredibly gifted in what you do, reaching peoples hearts and telling them what God is saying to them. You are being used in an amazing way by Him and even though you get thousands of messages per day saying these same things to you, i needed to say it myself, keep doing what the Lord is leading you to, God can use you in incredible ways if you just remain open like you are. Sure being open means being hurt sometimes (there are mean people out there) but with Gods protection you will overcome this.
I love you so much and wish you even more happiness that you could ever imagine. I would say that you're an angel but in Gods eyes you are more than that :)
big hugs from me!! Natasha

Laura said...

Jemsmom said...

I am so glad your Glaminar went well! I never for a moment doubted it would. I was praying your leg wouldn't give you any trouble. I have followed you for a while now and I just wanted to say that I think you are an amazing woman. You have gone through so many things that would get others down and make them quit, but you have just shown great strength time and time again. You are an inspiration! Thank you for always sharing!

Hi Kandee!

I just subscribed after reading all about you for the past month. You have no idea how much of an impact you have on people. You have such a warm, authentic personality that truly touches our souls and I thank you for being YOU!! I've been going through some tough times lately and whenever I'm down I just come to you and I'm instantly in a better mood!

I sooo wish I could have been at the glaminar--looked like so much fun. I just hope some day I can meet you in person. Until then...love you back!

Have a great day! :*:*

Molly said...

Kandee! I just wanted to say thank you soooo much! You inspire me more than you know. Your words and videos get me through really rough days. I really want to be a makeup artist in New York, only problem is no one else wants me to be one. I live in in a small town and really want to live big and experience different things and make people happy like you do! Thank you for all the inspiration I so hope one day i can go to one of your glaminars its such a dream of mine. Lots of love always!
-Molly

Hey Kandee! I really love reading your blog posts. You make me feel so encouraged when all I usually feel is alone.

ashley said...

Kandee, you look so thin and beautiful! I hope I can be strong enough to turn away from cupcakes like you soon. I love your blog and wish I could have gone to your glaminar. hopefully if you continue holding them I can save up! Anyway, great post, it made me smile as usual! (:

oohmyfavorite.com said...

Oh Kandee, you're so wonderful! I've been telling everyone I can about how truly gifted and inspiring you are. Mom was down visiting me last week and we watched all of your videos together; it was so great.

Sarah said...

Kandee Johnson!!

I just wanted to let you know that today was not the best of the days for me, but reading your blog and hearing your optimism really cheered me up a bit. One of the most hurtful things that happened today was someone broke our car window and stole my camera bag, with over $1000 worth of camera equipment in it. I felt like my whole life was shattered along with the window pieces scattered amongst the asphalt and the backseat. I cried so hard because I felt awful that it was my fault that this happened. And I cried because I didn't understand why someone would do this. I'm only 17 and I understand that I've lived a very sheltered life, have so much more to experience, and it is nothing compared to what you have been through. But I'm really glad that you can fill me with so much love and hope and goodness. It really helps to know that you will always be such a loving, caring, and good person in a world where there is so much unnecessary hate and hurting.

One of the things I realized today was that from the bad things that bad people do, the bad people experience only a moment of joy and a lifetime of misery, but the good people experience only a moment of misery and a lifetime of joy. So I really hope that I'm right, and I hope that all the bad people in the world realize that hurting others has no benefit.

Sorry for this long, rambling comment, but I just love you so much and you are such a fantastic, beautiful person! You really lifted my spirits and helped me think optimistically. Please keep blogging and posting videos!

Wishing you a lifetime of happiness.

Much love, Sarah.

Kristina said...

That was no doubt the best day of my life, to see you inspire in person was so amazing and surreal i kept pinching myself! i still cant believe i was there...thank you so much for giving me the best oppurtunity i have ever rec'd! you are so genuine and loving that only good can come your way! you are what keeps me going in the direction of my dreams and i am so lucky to have stumbled upon your youtube videos right when i needed too, God placed you in my life and in my heart and for that I will be forever grateful :) because now i can hear your voice in my head from glaminars saying that dreams do come true and they will!! so thank you from the very bottom of my heart <3

Betssy said...

Aww.
I REALLY wish I would have been there and I hope you keep doing glaminars ,because I would LOVE to go to one. But as of now I can't but if in about a year you keep hosting them I am sooo there.
