this is a "business" as I've ever dressed....but I do love the shoulder pads!
I think I was about 11-ish.
My mom let me and my sister dress up in her clothes...."briefcase-like" bags and all!
The person in the grey suit and higher heels, is my sister...but I wasn't sure if she would like me to post her in her "dress-up" clothes. (you're welcome sister) ha ha ha
*Please note the cotton headband I am wearing....this was my hair "must" of that time. I had many a headband like this, and would wear them just as you are seeing it on me! ha ha ha ha
I also like how I opted for the sensible, "low" heels!

for The Moms View...
these girls were so nice and beautiful and fun!! I had such a fun time filming our crazy scene! Wait til you see it!
I love when I get to have my friend Priscilla Ono, who is an incredible make-up artist to the stars, do my make-up! It's like if you were a chef, and then your other friend who's a chef, gets to cook you something amazing! ha ha ha I don't really trust anyone to do my make-up- because I just think I can do it better myself- ha ha ha ha, except for Priscilla- I love how she does my make-up!
I love her and we have so much fun- I love her to pieces...
Matt Motherhead, came to dazzle up my hair on his way to get everyone ready for the Emmy's! He is amazing- especially because I don't like doing my hair, at ALL! I felt so fancy having my friends do my hair and make-up! Like I was a famous person!
this was the jewelry I brought as options- lookin' dangerous!
Katilette...AKA Mama Shaytard...she is so beautiful in real life too! And so sweet! I had so much fun with all the girls from The Moms View.
I wish I had a picture of me and Kayli, riding in a mustang with our driver wearing BluBlocker sunglasses...it was so much fun!
a huge thank you to all the Maker Moms, for having me there, and for being so awesome and nice to me...I've never been around a room full of such nice Youtubers, ever!
A hint: we were all superheroes yesterday, well because inside every mama is a little bit of super-hero-ness!
BOOM! BAP! POW!....your kandee

#1. I lost the sunglasses I was wearing in the picture above. It made me super sad because they were one of my favorite sunglasses of ALL time. I hope they still make them...they are the Kozoi glasses from Sabre. ....insert sad face, I don't think they make them anymore.
#2. The reason I started wearing mis-matched earrings, years ago, was that I would always lose one...so I just started mix-matching them....I'd wear a hoop with a stud, a feather with a chain...and so on. And then I went to Macy's the other day and saw them selling a pack of mix-matched earrings! cray cray Not saying I started that, it's just crazy when something people made fun of you for, becomes trendy! ha ha ha
#3. I've been wearing men's hanes white tank tops and t's since high school.
#4. I never touch public bathroom door handles with my hand, I get a paper towel and open the door with it, then throw it away after I've left the bathroom!
#5. I love real watermelon, but I am not a fan of watermelon flavored anything....no watermelon flavored lipgloss, snow cone, nothing...well except I used to love watermelon jolly ranchers.

But yes, as I dug for a good "throwback thursday" picture to show you guys...this one just seemed to jump out at me!
I don't know if it was my crazy bangs, the denim, button-up shirt- but something said- post this baby!
Yes, this must have been 6th grade...I believe that was the year my friend Sarah, taught me to tease my bangs and use hairspray- there were no youtube hair tutorials back then!
I also had a black hat, that would actually be back in style...it was very NKOTB...and if you have no clue what that means, well, it was today's version of Justin Bieber, accept more of him.
and there you have my semi-embarrassing "old school" kandee picture of the week! hee hee
Hope you have 6th grade pictures where you looked cooler than me!
I'm out like the style of clothes I was wearing in that picture...ha ha ha

I've named her Betsey, Betsey Johnson.
You see, she is a Betsey Johnson mannequin, from one of the Betsey Johnson stores that have all been closed now.
*I love Betsey Johnson and am so excited to treasure, a bit of Betsey Johnson store, memorabilia!
If you missed my blog post on it and the "Betsey Johnson" letters I scored, CLICK HERE.
she looks fashionable in her pink, "betsey" Garment bag dress....I call it "plastic trashbag couture"!
My first job was working at a Contempo Casuals- which was like a Forever21, back in the day...and they were selling their mannequins, ad I bought one. So me and my sixteen year old self, drove my mannequin home...I did her make-up, dressed her and she was part of my room's decor, but she sometimes startled me when I'd walk in my room and think someone was in there forgetting it was my mannequin! ha ha ha
And you bet your eyelashes that those Betsey letters are going up on my walls, somewhere!
and I'm out like the streetlights at sunrise, your amigo, kandee or "dulce" in spanish!

and there I was, guilty as charged....
my laptop was out too.
Does typing a blog, email, or whatever everyone else everyone was working on at Starbucks, make you more creative!?!#1. Do you feed off the energy of others busily tapping away?
#2. Do you feel more important because people see you are working on something?
#3. Do you just need a good internet connection?
I am guilt of number 3- I needed an internet connection somethin' fierce.....so there I went to buy my bottle of water, and cake pops for my
Well, you never know, I do remember a certain guy who would frequent the same Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (which is my fav, even though I don't drink coffee- just eat coffee ice cream- weirdsmobile, I know!) as me in LA....
And may I tell ya, that picture at the top....well, that was when my internet was "down in my area", according to my internet provider....and I could wait NO MORE to blog....I had to go buy a hot tea, petit vanilla scone, and I brought my mac blush so I could blog about it! ha ha ha
I am NOT typing this from a Starbucks, I am, loner-style, typing this on my back patio in a rocking chair.....but I do see a little slug, that probably wants to blog too: Slug-ez Hilton.

And oddly enough- very first video on youtube was "How to Clean Your Make-Up Brushes" (CLICK HERE IF YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT...it's so blurry and you'll see)
BUT......and this is a BIG BUT as in Baby Got BACK.....
HAVE YOU EVER DONE THIS?!?!
You wash your hair...and your brushes don't wash themselves...but they do pick up oil, dirt, product and all other kinds of junk and keep spreading it back into your hair! yuckster!
HERE'S A LITTLE VIDEO I MADE SHOWING YOU HOW TO DO IT:
(and yes, I made this before I got my new hair cut and color....click this if you missed that video)...
and yes I tell you my favorite brushes and there's bloopers, as usual, at then end- enjoy:
HERE'S A LIST OF WHAT YOU NEED:
#1. DIRTY BRUSHES - or pretty much any brush you've never cleaned!
#2. BAKING SODA
#3. APPLE CIDER VINEGAR or WHITE DISTILLED VINEGAR
(I prefer the Apple, but use what ya got)
#. 4 DAWN dishwashing soap
#5. A TOWEL
#6. A COMB
#7. A OLD TOOTHBRUSH- do not use a toothbrush you plan on putting in your mouth again!
#8. Access to water- in a bowl, a sink, a bucket, you get the idea.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU WASH YOUR BRUSHES?
Daily- remove the hair.
Every 1-3 Months give em a bath! If you are one of the people that only like to wash their hair 1-2 times a week- I'd wash your brushes at least every month! You don't wash your brush depositing excess oil to your hair line and giving you breakouts too!
*Some people just use shampoo to clean their brushes, but the reason this isn't so great, is because Shampoo has ingredients which prevent it from being able to really clean the oils out of the brush, and it usually is what helps create product build-up too!
And don't leave out your pet brushes! This is a great idea to wash your dog, cat, llama, pony whatever you've got...keep their brushes clean too!
This is safe for all brush types and it will actually help pro-long the life of your brushes too! In order to take care of ANYTHING- you need to clean it! ha ha ha
WHAT THE HELLO KITTY WAS I WEARING IN MY VIDEO:
Leopard Print Shirt- I got it at TJ MAXX.
LIP COLOR- it's actually 3 lipliners mixed together to look like CHERRY lipliner from MAC, which I can't find and LOVE!
ANCHOR NECKLACE: I made it, and here's a video I made about how I made it. CLICK HERE
NAIL POLISH: I have on Sally Hansen nail polish in Mint Sorbet.
anything else I you wanted to know, just ask me below...
yummy smelling hair, your homey, kandee

And when I saw her iphone case- I luuuuved it! I asked where she got it and she said: "I made it!"...
I was like (yeah, read that like a Valley Girl, it makes it more funny), whhhhat! Oh my gobbstoppers! That is too cute...can I take a picky and post it on the interwebs?!"
*a phone cover:
My mom loves a few things, and the dollar store is one of them. She got the case part at the dollar store.
I think she said she got them at Michael's crafts.
*gel glue for jewels
She used some kind of gel super-glue for jewels to glue the flowers on, but as I type this she can't remember the exact name.
STEP #1. She layed the flowers out in different arrangements to see which looked best, then glued those babies down!
STEP #2. Just let the glue dry and your done.
TOTAL PROJECT TIME: 10 minutes
PROJECT COST: less than $5
case was $1
pack of plastic flowers (make sure you get the michael's crafts app- you can save up to 40% sometimes) about $2
glue was about $2
hugs and sparkly things, kandee and her mama

And today is HIGH SCHOOL kandee.
(Next to me is my best friend from high school, Amy- in the "plumb pants"...who actually came over for a few minutes to visit last week!) I like how if you didn't see our heads, we'd totally look like guys!
*Yes, my hair was super-duper long- reason #1 why they called me Winnie Cooper (from that show The Wonder Years)
*I wore a lot of skate shoes, a pair of Nike hiking boots (don't ask me why- I loved them), a white pair of Doc Martens, a pair of white lace up Vans with navy blue trim, and my fav were a pair of ruby red patent leather Airwalk skate shoes.
*I dresses in mostly "boy-looking" clothes- good thing I had long hair.
* I would wear my dad's old jeans. I loved shopping at thrift stores and would hunt for vintage men's sweaters and bowling style shirts. I wore lots of white v-neck t-shirts. Baggy jeans- I had a fav pair of red Cross Colours jeans that were super baggy. And lots of baggy old courduroy pants I'd find thrifting in crazy colors like lavender or plain grey.
When I was 16, I got a job at a clothing store and then I started wearing skirts and dresses and lots of knee high socks.....lots. And I dressed way more like a girl! ha ha ha
Maybe next Thursday I'll post a pic from my "girly" phase!
and I'm out, just like all the clothes in that picture are out of style...your kandee

(bracelets: Forever21 gold studded cuff, black jelly bracelets from Hot Topic, and Black rubber chain bracelet from Marc Jacobs, gold spikey ring was on clearance a looong time ago from BCBG, it was like $7.)
My minty polish fav is:
Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Extreme Wear in MINT SORBET.
This polish is kind of amazing- 2 coats and it looks beautiful- it was glossy, smoothed out any ridges my nails had (yeah they are natural and kinda well un-smooth like natural nails are! ha ha), and last longer than my average nail polish- I'm HARDDDDD on nails...and this was tough like John Wayne in a cowboy movie!

And what hair would be the next "Ombre" wave to ride into...
And please know that I am not telling anyone to have trendy hair, that the Ombre is on or out - as you guys know...I am not a "that is sooooo last month" person....if you haven't tried the Ombre trend and want to- do it, it's fun, you look tan- I even have a tutorial on how I did mine- CLICK HERE.
I just like seeing what creative minds are coming up with for somethin' new and different...and I kinda love this hair!
the Ombre was a subtle "melting of hair colors"...this "half & half" look is a modern, hair edge of artsy coolness- which I love!
It's not the look where girls just died the under side of their hair dark...this is all the hair-
blonde on top half and chocolatey half on the bottom.
If I was a hair trend-caster- I'd say this is the next in cool hair colors.
Well for those who's hair can stand this!
I'd do it, but there's no way my hair near the scalp could go platinum-ish and have any hair left on the bottom to dye dark! ha ha ha ha
What do you think?
Do you like this hair color idea for fall?!? Would you try it- even if you knew your hair wouldn't fall off?
OR are you already pinning this or printing it out to take to your stylist?!?
huge and half and halfness...and not in a Cruella De Vil way....
CLACK on THIS to see my SUPA' NEW VIDEO THAT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE...well a least the beauty part anway....
