The Hardest Glaminar Day ever!

After 3 hours of sleep in 48 hours..waking up for the London Glaminar at 5 am...which was like the time I would normally being going to bed my time...felt virtually impossible.
I couldn't even stand like normal to do my hair or make-up, I had to sit...ha ha ha
BUT....the hardest things usually always give the most amazing results! So take heart if you are going through something hard...keep going, it always gives you something great.

And even though if felt "too hard" to start in the morning....the day was one of the most incredible days ever!
Me sharing my "secrets for success", but most importantly sharing how to be the most confident, happy, positive person that will change people's lives wherever you go!
Look at all the places that girls came from to be at the London Glaminar:
Paris
Belgium
Germany
Italy
Vietnam
Croatia
Czech Republic
Israel
Poland
Sweden
Norway
Dubai
Switzerland
Ireland
Scotland
Portugal
and a few from London, ha ha ha!
We even had 2 girls from Texas and Arkansas, that were there...they are leaving abroad right now! (So familiar to hear American accents! (which we were told sound "cool"! click here to read: www.kandeeland.com)

Here's my day in pictures!
my breaksfast "american pancakes"...but I was serious need of butter, I never use syrup with my pancakes, just loads of butter!
the sign in the lobby that read, "Kandee Johnson's Glaminar"!!!!1


Faaizah, from Dubai, who was one of our amazing helpers and my mama in the morning!
Faaizah, Elinor, Rachel, Hannah (who made the delicious cupcakes), and Nina- our awesome team of helpers!
a little tiny, but big bellied, me, in the morning!
our yummy cupcake table...we managed to get 2 girls make us cupcakes, both named Hanah...one had emailed me and one had emailed my mom, and we thought since the name was Hannah, that it was the same girl! So we had 2 fabulous cupcakers....Hannah of CakeyCupps
our sign-in table

this room reminded me of Cinderella, it was the most delicate light blue, with white and pink accents...
you felt like a princess in this room.
me and my "cupcake" tummy, talking sharing my "secrets for success"...in the morning class.
the cool lobby at the hotel
the entry doors
afterwards at our meet and greet with all the incredible girls who came!
look at the awesome Hello Kitty ring I got as a present!!!!! I love it!
we were "black & white pattern" twins!




me and the sweetest pair of sisters from Portugal (I love my portugal presents~ thank you girls)


My sweet Croatian doll! Showing me her make-up portfolio- her work was absolutely beautiful, just like her!
The sweetest girls! Came all the way from Vietnam.
My sweet Sonia, who was the first precious one I met in London, in the lobby! She got me the beautiful pendant that she had engraved with "You're my Inspiration, love sonia"....I will treasure it always!
her handsome little brother stole my heart! I was told he has 5 girlfriends already. And he brought me a tin of chocolates! What a doll!
Sonia's sweet family that traveled with her, it was her first time to London too! Her uncle, mom, Sonia, me (and my cupcake), her adorable sister, and the her dashing little brother with impeccable style!
opening up one of the precious gifts that was brought to me! I received so many precious treasures for both me and my little ones! And I have to say...I am in heaven with all the Belgian and Swiss chocolate I received!

This day was beyond words....I wish everyone knew how the Glaminars are so wayyyyyyy beyond make-up. Everyone left saying things like, "This has changed my life!", "I feel like I can go after my dreams now!", "You are so much more amazing in real life, than on Youtube!"...
even the guy who ran the sound, said, "This is incredible, I must go tell everyone I know what I learned today!" (he learned nothing about make-up, but how to change your life and inspire your heart and your dreams and how to make them happen in your life!"

For everyone that was there:
Remember to be the HOT PINK tree!!!

Life is too short to live an ordinary life. If circumstances in life have tried to make you a copy, remember that you are a fabulous original!

Huge love to everyone reading this!
I am so excited to be off and seeing a bit of London!
cheerio.....xoxo kandee

Kandee
Since you are not going to be doing anymore glamineers after the bb is born, have you thought about creating a video and selling that. I know it would be a huge hit! I love your videos you are awesome!

Kandee you're amazing!

I always love reading these Glaminar updates, Kandee. You ARE such an inspiration! So glad you're being blessed right back!

Cassi Teague said...

Kandee, Have you ever thought about doing an on-line glaminar?? You have never been close enough for me to go, and you could charge online, and we could pay through paypal!!! Please consider this, and you could be out of your home, which would be easier to do with your cupcake!! :) :)

Layla said...

Come to Saudi Arabia next time <3

Dolly said...

Hey Kandee, I wish I could have also attended the Lonoon Glaminar! Oh well, i'm so glad you had a great time! I hope you enjoy your stay in London! Happy sight seeing! Your friend, FE

Ewa said...

Sorry to say that Kandee, but i had chance to go 1st floor by lift with that girl Faaizah.. and she was saying to another girl that she hopes that you will make nice goodies bag with urban decay cosmetics because they dont have this in Dubai and she would be upsed if you didnt give any goodies to us..it didnt sound cool and nice at all,before i got home i didnt even look at the bag what was inside,because for me the most and incredible thing was ..to meet You Kandee..i hate two faced people.. Love you Kandee.. i will never forget the day i meet You... xoxo
Ewa
P.S Hope Jordan will like the t-shirt and little ones will fit in to their clothes ;-) ah! and hope you like the perfumes Kandee and Your mama!( i run to get you this perfume after we took photo and you asked me what was i wearing)

Shan8789 said...

You are so amazing and wonderful. I stumbled on your page by accident and it was the best thing I've ever done. You make me want to create and inspire and dream like I used to and you make it all seem possible. I never thought someone I have never met could change my heart in such a way. Thank you for bringing the sparkle back to life, for being my light in the dark.

I don't feel alone anymore. I'm not the only one in the world that just loads butter on top of their pancakes! yes! haha people look at me weird all the time and think there's something wrong with me when i tell them i don't use syrup :-)

daisy alice said...

Cris Prates said...

Dear, Kandee. We all love you and that's absolutely true! I wish you could come to Brazil too. I'm so happy for this post, I don't know why but I am over happy. It must be because I've been following you for a loooong time and seeing you this happy makes me grand, too. Congratulations. You're fabulous.

Kristina said...

You need to write a book so that those of us who cannot attend your Glaminars can still get your advice on how to be positive and inspire others.

Rebecca said...

I was googling earlier "DIY Rosie the Riveter costume" and it linked to your YouTube channel and I have watched several videos and LOVE THEM!! I just tried the lemon scrub trick too and my face is so soft!! Thanks for this little gem you have, I'll be spending a lot of time here!

candy apples said...

I've been watching your videos for a while and you're such an inspiration!!
I wish there were Glaminars here in Japan... I'll save up so I can fly myself over there one of these days :D

xoxo

The Lightning Bug said...

It would be really awesome if you could have like a live stream or something like that of your last Glaminar in LA!! I'm a senior in High School, I really want to go, and I'm trying to figure out if there's anyway I can!! I really hope I can figure out something! I feel like I really need to be there, so hopefully I'll see you soon. I really appreciate and admire that you're putting in all this hard work even while being pregnant :D

IngenueKX said...

Kandee, you're totally AWESOME! I really cannot wait until Toronto IMATS to see you!

Jay said...

Sarah Robertson said...

Hi Kandee!!
Thank you so much again for everything! I was the girl with her mumma from Scotland. Thank you so so much for everything ( and you mom too :) ) I wish I'd spoken more but it was like that story about the cute guy and the ugly friend well....you're that cute guy! Your such an inspiration. You did so well even being 6 months pregnant and with no sleep!
Saturday was one of the best days of my life! Thank you again!!!
