    Are you "Bleachorexic"?

    People used to ask me all the time how I have such white teeth...I "bleach" (Not really use bleach...just teeth whitener) these bad boys!
    And I found out they used part of my video in a segment on Good Morning America (I think it's hilarious they came up with the term "bleachorexic" for people that bleach their teeth, chew whitening gum, then rinse with whitening mouthwash! ha ha ah)


    So when I first started doing youtube videos...I thought I'd show people how I whiten my teeth...and since I had a brief stint where I worked at a Dentist with my best friend...I got a few secretes to bleaching how to make a "cheapo" version of teeth whitening trays....
    ENTER My FIRST TEETH WHITENING video (I've heard that Plus White has since changed their formulation so I'm not sure if it still works as great as it used to!....)

    teeths and tooths.....smiling, kandee

    Jellies and Studs: a match made in heaven

    Since I haven't been able to find my leather cuff bracelet that I made and have been wearing almost everyday for years.....I've had to come up with something else to wear on my bare wrists.....

    and my new love is black jelly bracelets.....
    they aren't really a new love because I have loved jelly bracelets since I was little and would take 2 and twist them together to wear on my wrists...

    We'll just say me and jelly bracelets have been "reunited...and it feels so good"...

    I got one pack of all of these at HOT TOPIC.....what I really want is white ones....I'll be hunting!

    And the hunk of awesomeness on my a black acrylic, giant stud ring by MARC from MARC JACOBS (It's the only Marc Jacobs, anything that I own...I wish I had more! ha ha ha) that I got a while ago at Kitson on Robertson in LA.

    Hooray...I'm on our summer vacation...and this is the best vacay-cionay jewelry's could go through metal detectors with the jelly bracelets...the ring, maybe not so much...
    But I will still be bloggin away during my vacation....

    off to put on my jelly bracelets....jelly donuts kandee

    I heart red shoes (like lipstick on your feet)

    (Shoes: Red Vans, pants: thrift store treasure, shirt: white men's Hanes T-shirt, silver cuff: Forever 21, yellow rose ring: sister got it for me at Norstroms)

So you can bet your sweet tooth, that I still have tons of thrift store and vintage store finds in my closet....

    Turn your NAUGHTY HAIR day into a KNOTTY HAIR day!

    Someone sent me a picture of a "double knotted" hair do from the Michael Kors Runway show to try to "Kandee-fy" it.....

    NO TIME for just need to "hairy up"?
    this look took me about a minute to's awesome!

    Super cute, no fuss, and doesn't look like you have a "prom up-do"..ha ha ha

    (easy peesy)
    some mousse
    bobby pins
    a little hair spray for wild hairs
    and ofcourse your hair

    what the hair?!? how do I get a knot out of my hair?
    Actually without the bobby pins holding it in place..the hair just wants to slip out of the knot. So make sure you hold it in place while you pin it OR it will just fall out!

    what if I have too much hair?
    your knot will just look cooler because the loops will be bigger.
    I just have like 48 hairs on my head, so it looks super thin and the knot isn't as prominent as it could be. I'm just thankful for the 48 hairs I have  on my head!

    Now let's go have a "knotty" good time with our hair....
    I'm waiting for you in this video...(hee hee)

    hair knots...your Kandee Bo-Rubber-Bandy or this case bobby pinny!

    Summer Watermelon Lips!

    I thought is would be fun to play around and do a summer fruity lip here's a little wild and crazy lipstick design!
    introducing WATERMELON LIPS!
    These were so fun to make....
    I used:
    *Green Liquid Eyeliner 
    *Red Lip Liner in Cherry from MAC
    *then I dabbed bright red blush on top with a lip liner brush
    *Drew on the "watermelon seeds" with black liquid liner (I used Perversion from Urban Decay)

    and voila...lips so juicy they look like you could bite them...but you really don't want to because that would hurt.......

    "I got watermelon seeds all over my lips!"......Kandee

    Toe-riffic Colors!

    (mom's hot pink toes on the neon-electric orange toes on the right) 
    Whether you love feet or you are totally grossed out my the site of toes...
    you have a pair of feet just tapping their toes for some for some color!
    (I personally kinda think feet are not so any help they can get...a fun color polish makes them much better to look at! ha ha ha)
    (it's can see them glowing in the picture...ha ha ha)
    So mom picked this super fun hot neon-pink, it looks like SHOCKING PINK or POOL PARTY from China Glaze...have no clue what the name is, (that makes her feet look super tan)...I thought I was picking the same color but a little darker....
    but mine look more electric-coral-orange-with-a-slight-hint-of-hot-pink, called Flip Flop Fantasy from China Glaze.....I like the orange, but I like my mom's color way better.


     shocking pink by China Glaze
    Flip Flop Fantasy by China Glaze
    (warning..the color it looks in the bottle does not look like how it comes out on your is way more electric after it dries and you apply topcoat!)

    flippy floppies and toe separators.... kandee

    Maybelline Moisture Extreme Lipliner in Toast
    MAC Lipliner in Buerre (which is what I used)
    Beauty Bargain: Revlon Lipstick in Pink Sugar (on the left)
    MAC Lipstick in Fleshpot (you could use Myth also, they are very similar), this is what I used
    and lastly..if you want to top your pout off with some non-sticky gloss, I used
