oh sweet chicago glaminar.....


2:22 am finally in bed
Chicago Glaminar was awesome...
We had meet & greet until 12:56am...yes at almost I am, I was in the elevator and after sharing hugs, hearing stories from the heart....and feeling that my heart had grown with love...

No room service was happening that late....
Jordan and I tried to walk down to the Dunkin' Donuts....they were closed.
We ordered:
Jordan's order...
chicago style stuffed pizza
jalapeno poppers
and a chocolate mousse cake he shared with me
and I just polished off my toasted ravioli's......

My throat hurts from talking so much...my leg is rather swollen....but my heart is overjoyed that I've been allowed into so many hearts and lives...
and to hear one precious girl tell me she had Bells Palsy (a condition that weakens or paralyzes the facial muscles)...that I was part of her healing...she felt her "smile" muscles move again, after finding my "oompa loompa" make-up video on youtube! To her face, fully recovered, smiling and me, lit my heart up for that a baseball stadium of lights.

Thank you to everyone who was a part of today.....I am honored to be a part of your lives....and your future dreams......

huge love...a sleepy, stomach full, and sore throaty from all the talking.....kandee

God sent us an angel! Funny how I was introduced to ur vids! For a while I've been a struggling film maker, no support from anyone but my sister. One day I was crying bcuz I didn't want to give up on my dream that I had fought for so long, but was about to let go and check into reality. I opened my myspace comments and there it was " yourr dreams and my story" by Kandee Jonhson, my sister posted it as a comment. I watched and listened and felt alive to see such a beautiful person who's been trough worst thing than I have, still smiling and doing what she loves best. I was so inspired and my drive shot back up! I luv kandee for all this, because of her youtube story I haven't given up! I attended the Seattle Glaminar and u have no idea what a blessing its been since then.
Luv Gabby!

I just love hearing about all your updates from glaminar. And to know that you are most likely EXHAUSTED but you care about your readers so much to still post a blog. I hope I can make it to your glaminars one day. Hopefully if you do one again for IMATS LA next year, I'll get my butt there! Sweet dreams Kandee!

I send you waves of healing and light. May angels protect you and Jordan as they safely bring you back home to your family. Stories like these continue to inspire us. Can't wait to see more of your adventures in Chicago! Thank you for this post. : )

Hi Kandee! (I just love Your name♥)
I'm Kristina from Lithuania. Almost three months ago I accidentally found one of Your videos on Youtube. Of course I liked it, so I subscribed. And it has affected my summer so much! If it is not Your video and blog, I can not imagine what would have saved me this boring summer. Just over one summer, I learned so much from You! From the make-up... to the self-searching and self-knowledge. I am a selfish person, sometimes too selfish, but Your attitude to everything and kind-heartedness, touched something inside me and I want to change, try to be a better person.
I am so happy and grateful that You appeared in my life.
Thank You for everything.
You are my Biggest Inspiration!
Love You♥

I randomly came across one of your videos on you tube while uploading one of my daughter (not sure how that happened????) but anyway, you have such a way of reaching out to people, never loose that. this is just a video that reminded me of what you say repeatedly (in a good way) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkCFeNeqyHk

Kandee!

I loved coming to your Chicago Glaminar yesterday. I know you've heard this a million times, but you really are so inspiring. Being around you/watching your videos fills me with that feeling that you get when you are around a child. Being around someone like you brings back that child-like spirit that so many of us lose when we "grow-up". Adults forget what it's like to be so innocent and worry-free. You are confident, positive, and encouraging. Thank you for reminding me how important it is to look forward to everyday and to remind those close to me how much I love them.

Tonya
PS--You and your mom are so BEAUTIFUL! So nice to meet you:)

I love you!!!

Kandee!
I know your not doing any Glaminars in California at this time and I'm willing to travel to come to you but I was wondering if you had any sort of Glaminar Scholarships or like a Glaminar contest haha. I can afford to travel out there and take care of accomadations but I cant afford all of it plus the glaminar at this time. I really feel like this is something I need to do and I'm willing to do what it takes to come to you and try to get into these classes of yours! I'll do anything!<3
