today i admire: kandee johnson

today i wanted to write a post about a person i deeply admire: kandee johnson.

kandee is a makeup artist that has worked in los angeles and new york and also hosts makeup 'conferences' that teach people new tips and tricks of the makeup community. kandee also posts videos on youtube about makeup tips & tutorials, fashion, hair.. anything under the sun that's related to beauty.

aside from her talents in the beauty world, kandee has a wonderful spirit. she is always encouraging her 'fans' to reach for the stars and to dream big. it's really refreshing to see someone who takes time out of her life (she just had a baby about a month ago and has 3 other children, so you know she's a busy gal!) to tell people how special they are.

kandee posted this video on valentine's day, and i think it's message is something to really think about:

if you want to know more about kandee, you can visit her makeup blog or her personal blog.

no matter how scary the world can seem sometimes, never give up on your dreams!!!

also: i have some exciting news for you guys coming up!!!! i have made kind of an impromptu decision to take a little trip this weekend (part of my whole welcoming new experiences mantra). check back in the next day or two to find out where i'm going!

until next time..
