Like Make-Up For Your Hair...

Pick a color, any color... This is the array of hair color options in my house. And today, I will have one of them on my hair!
I've had my short blonde hair for wayyyyy too long, and by way too long, almost a year.
I'm going back to my roots, with my normal dark hair, but first I'm bout to add some hair color fun to my follicles.
These are the 2 I've narrowed it down to. I want to have either a pastel pink or pastel turquoise hair color.

I think this might call for me to make a tutorial out of this...
Which one do you likey more?!?

Off to go start mixing and changing this biznezz, even it's just for a few days, because I kinda also have a hankering for a bright red, or just so my hair is the color of red velvet cake! ha ha ha

BEAUTY SPLURGE: Tom Ford Lipstick

So after every one of my celebrity make-up artist friends have asked me if I have tried the Tom Ford lipsticks and raved about how incredible they are, I had to go take a look, I mean a better look than me just swiping them on my arms to see how pretty they are, then leaving the store thinking, those are really pricey. And when I mean EVERY, celeb make-up artist friend I have, I mean every one! As soon as we start talking make-up, the Tom Ford lipsticks are one of the first things brought up!

So I Lipstick Splurged on these babies, which I kinda,  insta-fell-in-love with, and I'll tell you why:
I'm a sucker for a good nude pink, so when I saw Chastity, these light baby pink with a hint of just, gorgeous shimmer, I was like, yes this is my lipstick love.

I am just in love with this color. And I'm a hard core, MAC lipstick lover, and these Tom Ford Lipsticks are not even comparable, there's something about their texture that's just amazing!

These babies are no drugstore lipstick, they have a hefty price tag at 48 bucks, but I have to say, the difference in texture, it's beyond feeling like butter or silk, and the pigmentation leaves drugstore make-up in the dust. The lipstick case itself is like a piece of jewelry, no plastic, just all glamorous gold and black metal.

Here's the other color, of course a nude (I love nudes and reds!). Now my friend, Priscilla Ono, was telling me how her new favorite nude lipstick was a Tom Ford Vanilla shade, well, I think I got the wrong one, I think she has NUDE VANILLE, which is more pink-nude, than peach-beige-nude, but I still like this one too.
This is Tom Ford Lipstick in Vanilla Suede:

You can see that the Vanilla Suede is more peach nude, and that Chastity color is just like cotton candy for my eyes.

So my splurge thoughts: I have to agree with all my fellow Make-Up Artist Friends, that the Tom Ford Lipsticks are the "big spending bomb". The texture is unreal, the pigment is just incredible and intense. There may be other thing you could try to match in a similar shade, but nothing feels like these babies. This is pure lip luxury! So next time you wanna go big with big beauty splurge, you may wanna just find these to swipe on your arm and see if you fall in love too!

And if you buy a Starbucks everyday, these could be the equivalent of about 12 days of Starbucks cups. Ha Ha Ha Ha

Tom Ford, man, you not only design some amazing clothes, but you create some lipsticks that are like tubes of liquid luxury.

PS. After water got spilled on my laptop and it was not working, we are back in business, and I'll be uploading a pretty fun video tonight to YOUTUBE! Click here to check my channel!

Hope this felt like it added to glamour to your Monday, huge hugs your friend, Kandee

I love You Like A Tartan...and striped nails:

Me and tartan pattern have a little love thing going on.
Here's s little adventure/outfit of the day from my NYC Fashion Week Trip...

I also have a little thing for graphic white and black striped nail art. Which I did these myself, so don't judge me on their imperfection.

And this happens when I try to be serious for an Outfit Of The Day picture, ha ha ha ha
 At the Timo Weiland Fashion show, I wore:
Vintage old men's 501 Levi's
Doc Marten's Triumph 1914 Boots
The purse I designed for Imosion -The Kandee Johnson Bag (insert me beyond excited I can say that!)
Hat- from some random hat store in Toronto
My Rolling Stones shirt is on underneath.
Red Tartan ("vintage" Forever 21 ha ha) but I also just bought one from BooHoo CLICK HERE

I try so hard to do the classic "I had no idea anyone was taking my picture blogger look" and this is what I do ha ha ha ha:

And I saw the beautiful Debby Ryan after the show! We worked on the Love Is Louder Campaign, and she is one of the sweetest girls, she even made a video for Alani, who is a huge "Hey Jessie" fan!

Then I ate this in the taxi, KIND Maple Glazed Pecan & Sea Salt, this is better than a Snicker bar. Gluten-free, and ok, i really ate 2 of these. Yes, I keep them in my purse.

Then I headed to Yahoo! in NYC...see I took this picture like a nerd with the logo.

Then I got to be a guest on Ali Wentworth's Daily Shot show, she is hilarious and awesome and if you ever watched In Living Color, you will know her comedy-genius skills! She is amazing and I'll let you guys know when the episode with me on it, will be up!

See I told you I have a thing for Tartans (Fact of The Day: Tartan is called plaid in North American, but a plaid is really a piece of cloth thrown over the shoulder as a kilt accessory or a blanket)...
yes, all of these just arrived in my mail..after a little late night internet-shopping I did a few weeks ago. These were supposed to come withe me to Fashion Week, but I just got them yesterday -better late than never.

I am trying my hardest to actually edit a video of all the outfits I wore to Fashion Week to upload, tonight or if it's taking me way too long tomorrow, or worst case, Sunday...ha ha ha ha

Huge hugs and I love you more than a good Tartan, and that's a lot, your home girl, Kandee

And for a fun FASHION FRIDAY FLASHBACK, enjoy this Outfit Of The Day and all my stupid dance breaks, ha ha ha:

Come see what's the happs on all my social schmedia:

The Cutest Jewelry & Stranded in A City Without Luggage Essentials (hee hee)

When stranded in NYC, without luggage, and you're in need of essentials, what else would you buy but ice cream cone earrings?!? ha ha ha ha I got all these edible-looking, cute-accessories at TopShop!

And of course the essential, cherry earrings and matching cherry necklace!?
MY REASONING: What if my Topshop doesn't have these and/or is sold out. So these babies rode along in my computer bag!

Ok, now back to the more boring side of practicality. Your girl had no, face wash, makeup, hair tools, clothes....nada, nothing, neeee-yelp. I just made that word up, no need to google it's meaning. ha ha ha

Here's what I bought at Sephora
1. Josie Maran Argan Cleaning Oil to wash mah face, and the Argan Oil, they came together in a lil box, to moisturize.

2. Korres Body Butter In Guava - smells like I was stranded on a tropical island!

3. Sephora- mini wannabe Mason Pearson Brush - this saved my mom's hair-life.

4. Totally Not Essential Either: Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lip Stain in Unwanted - I had to buy this when I saw it, because it's always sold out!

And with my VIB, Sephora Points, I got these mini-mini guys:
Ole Henrickson Truth Serum Collagen Booster - because it's amazing.
LaVanilla perfume- because I can't pass up a Vanilla Scent-ooportunity.
Killer Queen mini perfume, because I think it' smelled nice through the cardboard box.

Oh and don't think I forgot it's Throwback Thursday!!! Here's a little gem, that makes me just want to go running for a bottle of dark hair dye and to go back to my natural-ness, yes this was last March...aww hair:

And don't forget if you want to win these babies that my cheek bones are obsessed with:

Then watch this video and see how to win these guys, they'll be your new cheeks BFF's! And please enjoy my big eyebrows and bra rant! ha ha ha ha

Woop De Woop, it's almost Freeeedayyyyy! And I'm trying to finish editing a lookbook video of my outfits from Fashion Week, holler if you're semi-excited, your homegirl, Kandee

See the stupid, I mean awesome stuff I post everywhere:
