I can't believe this was my DAY!!!

ME & PATRICIA FIELD (she is the designer and wardrobe genius who dressed all the girls on Sex & The City, Ugly Betty and movies like , The Devil Wears Prada!!!)

I woke up this morning thinking that today would be amazing, because I was having breakfast with the girls from ELLE, since I won the ELLE and COVERGIRL Video STAR contest for the WHOLE year! (I couldn't believe it...I thought I had just won another month of the contest! Not the whole year!!! I was so honored and excited!)
We had breakfast at this cute place with zebra print booths right across from Central Park...and all the girls from ELLE (I'm so sad I didn't get a picture with them!)...are so wonderful, cute, and so sweet...it was like just hanging out with friends and not editors of a magazine (how awesome is that!?!). 
(To Emily Dougherty: you are wonderful...since the moment I met you last year I loved you! So glad people at ELLE are so incredible...I love ELLE Magazine even more, knowing how great you all are!)
then my friend Andi Elloway who lives in LA,  happened to be in NYC working on another shoot...and she asked if I wanted to do a fun NYC shoot! YES!!! So this was a picture of me and her cute lil' self! (I'll show you the pics as soon as I get them! 
then I got to go to the biggest FOREVER 21 I've ever seen, in Times Square and had to pose with this gi-normo Lipstick!!!

Then the icing on my already unbelievable day......we had plans to meet my friend Lauren for dinner, and she tells me that Patricia Field (one of her good friends!), is going to be at dinner with us! Oh my gosh!!! I was so excited!
She is so funny, down-to-earth, nice, and a great business woman! I asked how she got started, where her favorite places to shop are, how long she's has her amazing red hair....It was so fun!
(my mama, my friends Tina and Lauren, super excited Kandee, and the Ruby-Haired Patricia Field!!)

I was so tired from my "unreal" and dreamlike day....I was so excited to blog about it all...and my mom came into the room to find me asleep on my laptop...smiling in my sleep! ha ha ha
You know you had an amazing day, when someone says you're smiling in your sleep!!!

This is going down in history in my life as: one of the best days of my life!
Breakfast near central park with the awesome girls from ELLE Magazine...a fun photoshoot....giant lipsticks...then dinner with PATRICIA FIELD!!!

TODAY's roster: (awesome-ness too!):
going to get my moms hair chopped off at the Ouidad Salon...super short, I'm gonna post it on here tonight!
Going the Patricia Field Store...where Pat herself said she would come and meet lil' ol me!!!!

I want to scream this is so awesome!!!!

Hyper-excitement and giant lipsticks....your kandee

Dear Kandee,
You amaze me! I have been following you through your blog & tutorials for several months now, & I feel like you're a friend even though we have never met. I just wanted to say, THANK YOU!, for always being true & so positive. You are an inspiration to all! Should you ever need to borrow fashion jewelry for a shoot or an event, please contact me. My sister is a fashion jewelry designer, Erika Pena (www.erikapena.com) & we love would to accessorize you. Oh, before I forget...Congrats for the little cupcake baking in the oven. You are blessed! Have an awesome day!

Kiersten said...

Hey Kandee,
I had a makeup question and the only person I could think to ask was you. I have really long eyelashes but they are So blonde! Even though I have dark hair. So I ALWAYS have to put on mascara to show off my nice long lashes. I had a makeup artist suggest I dye my eyelashes. Which, I didn't know was possible. I wanted to know what you thought of dying eyelashes and what to use?

expressmom said...

Your comment box booted me off earlier, so I am trying again!

Hats off to you for always appreciating the joy in your life. And thanks for sharing it, it always makes me smile too!

Sarah said...

WoW! I might feel the same way if we had lunch!

Tiffany Marie said...

Kandee,

Holy Lava Cakes! That's awesome!

My heart just swelled with so much love and joy for you! So excited for you! You are special and an inspiration no matter what you decide to do.

Hugs,

Tiffany
