My Day - going to Seattle...

My Jordan on the plane.... window seat, my favorite seat!
you can see the water from the entrance to the W hotel!
 g
Me and one of my most precious friends Tamara...she lights up a room with her joy...and I just adore her! So excited she calls Seattle home now...and I get to see her sparkling eyes! She has been with me through some of the not-so-fun times in my life....I love you Puddin'!
Seattle is beautiful! It is green and so clean. (oooh  i rhymed)
The W Hotel where the Glaminar will be tomorrow is GORGEOUS!!!!
We spent the afternoon making giftbags, setting up the room, arranging everything, unpacking boxes...which is where I sent a box-cutter into my thumbs trying to cut this plastic zip tie of the Vanity GirlHollywood Pink Starlet mirror that will be given away tomorrow....nothing a tightly applied band-aid couldn't fix!
 
 Tamara drove us to dinner...then the best part....we waited in line to get homemade ice cream at Molly Moon's, this line practically wrapped around the street for the tastebud wonders inside!
My flavor pick: Salted Caramel Ice Cream
oh my deliciousness! The guy scooping mine up said it's there most popular flavor...and I know why!
then we returned to the hotel room...to find a beautiful tray of chocolate cupcaked with gold leaf on top, sunflower seeds, a fruit basket, and a big bottle of Fiji water...with a precious card from Casey that works in the W bar, saying she is a fan! I had to go find her and hug her and thank her!

I am beyond tired and hope this blog post isn't crazy-tired-typed...ha ha ha ha
I heart Seattle! (oh then I asked my mom, "what's that movie where they are dating in Seattle?"...and she says, "oh, you mean SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE"?....ha ha ha ha...and i said yes, i need to go to bed right this second in Seattle! ha ha ha ha

typed with love and tired fingers....your kandee

Aww, looks like you're having the best time! Thanks for updating those of us who can't make it out with you. You're amazing Kandee! Have a fabulous Glaminar!

If you're staying another couple days, you most definitely need to go to Pike's Place, Seattle Center (to the EMP), and the International District! I love my Seattle. I've been itching to go hang out in Pike's Place, but just haven't been able to go. Have you ever been on the ferries? If you want that experience, you should come visit Bremerton =) Just because that's where I live haha. There's this awesome karaoke place nearby... ! Wow. Who knew I could be so enthusiastic about home? lol

Kate Gene said...

Aw, you're in my neighborhood! Welcome to Seattle! :)

Bumblee Bee said...

You have such amazing energy kandee! You seem right at home in Seattle. My birthday is coming up in a week and everytime someone asks what I want, I just say a few bucks. I'm hoping to save up enough to come to at least one class in Chicago. Is it too late to sign up?

Enjoy Seattle! Sending tons of love your way Kandee.

Hi Kandee! I really wanted to contact you but had no idea how so im leaving it in a comment ^_^ im really interested in attending your glaminars but I live in riverside, Cali...do you know when you will be having one in my area?? Ive really been inspired by you i and i want to thank you for sharing your stories with everyone. like you i got married young (age 19) and am now expecting my 1st baby! (its a boy) i went to cosmo school mainly cuz i love doing makeup but didnt know how to get in that industry so i did hair for abt 2 years, i do enjoy it but still prefer makeup. now with the baby coming (in 3 weeks!) i feel like my career is over, but you showed me it doesnt have to be! thanx again kandee! hope to here from you soon :)
xo, Emma
you can write me back on my blog or email. either way!

Miss Nikki said...

I hope you enjoy Seattle Kandee! It's my hometown, born and raised and now that I live in Austin I miss it so much! I'm sure the Glaminar will be fantastic and so much fun and you are so lucky you got to be there in the summer months with the weather is nice and the sun is shining. Live it up. Its a great city with great people.

shelby said...

I think its really cool that your son gets to go with you! I got to travel a bit when i was younger and those were some of the best memories, i bet your a fun mom! :) have a blast! :]

Debfannis said...

Oh my gosh that looks awesome! I'm from texas so any scenary I see is the sky, lol.
I love your blogs Kandee and you are truely beautiful inside and out. You have the most purest heart I've ever seen. You help me keep up my spirit which is so hard being bc I'm around people that bring me down. Not in the way that they make me feel bad but in the way that I live my life. Your awesome Kandee and I'm such a big fan of yours (You probably get that a billion times a day). I defiantly see someone wonderful in you that God has shown me I can be just like you; help girls and be a sister to them. You are someone I look up to the fullest even though I'm not taking my career anywhere towards makeup I still use your videos and I feel my spirit more fullfilled when I see them. Thanks Kandee for becoming such an inspiration in my life!

oh kandee, i'm so happy to see you are having the glaminar RIGHT THIS VERY SECOND at the W! my best friend stayed there when he was interning for this guy called BILL GATES in seattle a few summers ago. so even though i've never been, it holds a special place in my heart :) (especially since he brought me back trial-sized bliss goodies!)

Hi Kande, glad your having fun girly! If you like sushi go to Benni Hanna (not sure how its spelled) in downtown Seattle. They have AMAZING sushi. Have a safe flight home.
Still hoping, wishing, and praying to meet you.

Seattle sounds lovely! YUM, salted caramel ice cream sounds divine! my current fave flavour has to be Praline and Cream from Baskin Robbins!
