The Ten Year Hair Cut

Yes, it's throwback Thursday, but this might not seem so throwback-ish.
Because this picture was taken about 10 years ago.
And right when it took me forever 10 years to grow my hair back....I go and cut it almost the exact same way! ha ha ha ha ha ha
Yes, this picture was also 10 years ago, if you can't tell my my same Boy Scouts Of America shirt, I was in love with at the time.
I got it at a thrift store or vintage store, I can't remember because it was 10 years ago...
I actually still have it.
Maybe I'll start wearing it again.

But there you have it, my "10 year hair cut"...ha ha ha ha

You have no idea how much faster I get ready now!

But as I wrote on facebook yesterday:
With short hair, there is no waking up with "sexy bedhead", you just wake up with "scary pokemon hair"!

pokemon in the mornings, kandee

The Hello Kitty Salon...yes it's true.

Hello Kitty hit the scene in Japan in 1974 and made her way to the US in 1976...where I would end up falling in love with her as a little girl, and so did millions of others around the world.

Now, I have a new reason why I'd love to go to Dubai. There is a HELLO KITTY BEAUTY SALON there...and I kinda would decorate my house after it! Just please look at the reception can bet your eyeballs that I will be pinning this picture under "home decor inspiration". The striped walls and those white chairs...ohhhhh man!
And below the area where you can get a "toe-tally perfect" pedicure...
 , or a "kitty-cure" for your nails.

And ofcourse, Hello Kitty towels....
 And what else would be sold but Hello Kitty makeup.
 You know, if I was a little girl (and I lived in Dubai) that I would ask my mom if we could go all the time...well actually, now I'd just take my little girls here all the time, well....if we ever went to Dubai!
ha ha ha ha
even if you don't like Hello Kitty, you've gotta admit, this is pretty cool...kinda, right?!?

hello hugs, kandee

Now we wanted to do to easy, simple, cute looks, that were "Teen Friendly" we did two looks...
We did one Taylor Swift inspired look, wit brown eyeliner and red lips, and a more "Rihanna", but a "teen friendly, so it's a little less dramatic than normal Rihanna look, with black eyeliner and hot pink lips.

WARNING: This Might Be Too Awesome For Some People

 When you see this beginning of this video you can't tell what this guy is doing...making some crazy drug or what....but what I can tell you, is after you've finished watching this video...
you will be:
and you will know everyone....feels like we all have at some point: like we aren't good at anything...

And that very reason, that feeling like everyone is doing what you're doing, or doing better, or that you're no the very reason that will make you do something different and in the process will catapult you in a new level of amazement..and that is where my friend, Ian Ruhter, who is taking the photography world to new levels with what he is doing, inventing and creating, but that's not even why this video is so stinkin' awesome.
 Whether you love photography, singing, writing, makeup, or whatever it is...
you will be so inspired after this roller coaster of a video...that I am so honored and proud to say, was made by one of my best friends, Ian Ruhter... He's being interviewed everyday, is being filmed for interviews all over the and see why:
now prepare to be watch this video that seems to end in seconds because it's so interesting, may I present, Ian Ruhter's Silver and Light:

He just released the next video in the series... and it's amazing, but be prepared it is pretty emotionally charged, Ian Ruhter's Death Do Us Part:

Ian is the one who took this picture, it's one of my favorites:
And I'm super excited and honored that we are going to work on a project together...I'll keep you guys posted when and what and everything soon...

And Ian did not ask me to do this, but I am, (hee hee) because I am his friend...if you want to buy a prints like these:

 and support him by buying a print, or liking and sharing his video...I just want to support someone making beautiful and inspiring art, in a world that normally just shows awful or disturbing, or things that aren't very inspiring...
if you want to buy one of his prints CLICK HERE:

And I hope his videos inspired you to day, to go after your dreams, or lit a spark of ideas in your mind, that may just change the entire course of your future...
don't let anyone, even yourself limit you, your future or your dreams...

Each set of eyes reading this, each heartbeat, each precious amazing and hear me saying that every day: "YOU ARE AMAZING! AND DON'T LET ANYBODY TELL YOU DIFFERENT! NORMAL IS BORING! REJOICE WHEN PEOPLE SAY YOU'RE WEIRD!"...your kandee

Pink Passports and Eye Candy Treats

Wouldn't it be awesome if you could order custom colored passports...this is not a passport, it's a passport holder, but I love it! (I got it at TJ MAX!) It holds 3 passports inside and your boarding passes!

Next eye candy delights....look at these Doc Martens (I saw this at the TOPSHOP on Oxford Street- it was the biggest Topshop ever- there's a restaurant in side, a hair salon, frozen yogurt and cupcakes, an eyebrow threading's MASSIVE!)

and then welcome to drabsville...
this is the colorless picture of me and the no make-up on my face
(yes, I instagrammed this baby)

Happy Friday everyone!!

Who didn't see the video I uploaded might come in handy one "zitty" day:

huge hugs for Friday....
and always remember:

"People who are not going after their dreams, will almost always discourage you from going after yours! Go after them anyway!"

The Emergency Hide A Zit Trick

SKIN 911! This is how to hide a zit, blemish, mountain of grossness, on your face when you're out and about....
See how good ol Zitster is saying hello on the LEFT...and then hide and seek, "zit where'd ya go?"...

And yes, I post pictures like this of me on the interweb. Yes, that's my zit, in it's bleeding, weeping, and swollen state, the night before I made this video. Yeah, no need to comment on how I look with no make-up, I see myself every night like that! ha ha ha
 So get ready to watch the video as I show you how to do a "vanishing" trick on your zit, but here's what you need to make a this disappear:
COCONUT OIL- I used it to not only soften the skin, but it will help repair and heal the infected skin, as well as fight the bacteria causing the zit.

TOOTHPASTE- any brand, but I used Tom's Peppermint Toothpaste:

CONCEALER- I used my RCMA palette 
(the reason I love RCMA is because it was designed for tv and film, it doesn't contain any lanolin, mineral oil, fragrance, or petrolatum - all which have been known to cause some pretty ugly reactions on the skin!)

AND any face loose, translucent face powder...

Now come let me show you how to hide those ugly beasts:

I just picture Wendy and Peter Pan (my favorite ride at Disneyland) flying around Big Ben...
 and my new ear-"candy" or ear-kandee, I try to cleverly use my "candy"-name-factor as often as I can...might as well use it now to make up for how much I got teased for my name when I was younger...ha ha ha ha
I got this at TOPSHOP too....
and no it doesn't poke into your head at all.....which I'm sure you were wondering!

Happy Friday everyone..from me and my spikey ear to yours...hee hee hee

Bonjour Paris!

yes, that is the Eiffel Tower I'm pointing at...
As if Paris wasn't amazing enough...we arrived by train yesterday and it seems that everything  your eyes see once in Paris is such beyond lovely...
and when it was snowing, 
it was like "Paris in Snow Globe"! 
 How about a handful of Eiffel Tower for you!
My precious friend Frany and her sweet hubby Francois got us Cafe Eclairs.... coffee flavored of the most amazing thing I've ever eaten!
yes, the is the how I look when I'm chewing one of the most delicious things in the world!
 Paris is truly the most beautiful city I've ever seen...
you don't need to be in Paris with someone you are in love with...because you just fall in love with Paris!
Every corner, every detail, every building, streetlamp, the eiffel tower, even the trees with their dark black-ish bark, to the snow falling yesterday when we got here...
snow gently falling in front of a little Parisien carousel and in front of the Eiffel tower....
simply froze a moment of beauty from all time in my life...
and I felt like I was in a painting or a movie...
I can't believe I'm here...
I just keep saying, "can you believe we are in Paris!?!?"..."that is the EIFFEL TOWER!!!!".... and more things like that....
It is late here in Paris...and I still am not feeling 100% I'm off to bed... but I hope you have SWEET DREAMS...when you fall asleep later... croissants, crepes, and eclairs, your kandee

 If you want to see my video I only got one hour of sleep the night I uploaded..CLICK HERE.
