Yay!!!! I'm in a MAGAZINE!!!

I was just looking for a magazine to buy this morning in the Los Angeles International Airport (AKA LAX)...and what do I see but the OCTOBER ( I know! We're still only in the middle of September!)....issue- the BIG ANNIVERSARY ISSUE of ELLE magazine!!!!
It's like 2 million pages thick....but I knew if I went to the "Elle Beauty" pages I might see my little ol' face! Lo and behold....I give you this picture....: (yay! yay! yay!)

may I fill you in on a little special info: I took this picture myself in my bathroom! ha ha ha ha
To think this picture I took with my little old camera made it into the pages of ELLE is so AMAZING to me!
Just goes to show you...the beauty of things...never did I think that I'd be posing in my bathroom, with my little camera...not at all a glamorous like a real glossy photo shoot, just me, my bathroom, and the "fancy" lighting around my mirror! ha ha ha
Great things can start is weird places like your very own bathroom!!!

I've had to ask 2 different strangers to take my picture with this magazine! I was actually uploading these photos on my computer when I realized I had missed my flight! Yes while I was trying to get this online for you all to read.....my plane boarded and sat on the tarmac while I stood watching from inside the airport! ha ha ha ha


Here is the picture I had Stranger #2, take while I was missing my flight:

Yes, it's the big issue with Megan Fox on the front!
And here's me with myself on the magazine page!!!

Do you think Stranger #2 thought this was weird!? ha ha ha...she did say "congrats" afterwards! The ironic thing is, I have the same make-up look on in real life as I had on in the picture....pin-up lips and red mouth! ha ha ha weirdy!

I'm off to basque in the beauty of the San Jose Airport, type my other blog about my day with my sister: read it, it's fun:

love from the airport and ELLE magazine!!!!!!! I'm so excited!!!!!
your kandee

Kandee,
I just discovered you a few days ago after my friend Aundi went to your Atlanta Glaminar.
I have to tell you that one: you are gorgeous! 2-you are so sweet and precious! I can see the love of Jesus in your eyes! Three: I love the make-up videos, I've already tried a couple things and LOVE them! 4-Thank you for your openness and honesty about your pregnancy and life, it is so encouraging to see someone take responsibility for their actions, encourage people while doing it and to explain the grace of God that covers all things. I pray blessings on you and your adorable babies and the little one on the way!
Much love to you!
Jill

Im so Happy and excited our favourite make up guru, our idol, the inspiration for all of us is getting the attention she deserves! u desrve a whole lot more for beeing such an amazing fun-loving, hard-working, caring, inspiring person!

Hi, Kandee. I subscribe to Elle and received the Oct issue 2 days ago. But Gaborey Sidibe is on the cover, not Megan Fox...They must have shot multiple covers(?) HMMM Well, I'm def going to look for your sweet face in this massive mag! Congrats, Sweetie! Much Love,
Julie
