SHINE, Beautiful Ones…SHINE.



Good Morning, My Angels.
I awoke to this absolutely BEAUTIFUL text/video, from my equally as Beautiful Brother, &…I just had to share. 
Hope it touches your soul as it touched mine.

YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
YOU ARE MEANT TO SHINE.
YOU ARE MEANT TO LIVE ABUNDANTLY.
YOU ARE STRONG.
YOU ARE HERE FOR A REASON.
YOU ARE CAPABLE.
YOU ARE POWERFUL.
YOU ARE LOVED.


I love you, with EVERY BEAT of my heart, My Bruddah. I LOVE that your soul loves & understands mine. I am blessed far beyond measure to call you "mine". 

Have a day as beautiful as all of you!

"Haute For Halloween" Giveaway!



Hi, Gorgeous Ones!
Happy October.
Hope all of you are wonderful & your hearts & your worlds…are as happy as can be!
I can't thank you enough for stickin' with me & for your endless Love, Loyalty, & Support.
Because you all rock & I couldn't appreciate you more, you know…I wanted to hook a Sista up! 

So...I was looking through PEOPLE Magazine a few weeks ago & fell completely IN LOVE with this necklace! I went online, found the one I wanted, but wanted a little bit shorter chain. I emailed the name on the website, she replied immediately…& in what seems like a few days…this stunna was on my doorstep! Not only could I not love it more…the woman behind the brand & her customer service…is just as impressive as my purchase itself. Elyse is an absolute Doll & SUCH a pleasure to work with! Because I loved everything so much…of course…I wanted you to have one too! So this time, instead of my usual Giveaways...I thought I'd change it up a little. One of you lucky Beauties will have the chance to not only win, but pick out…your very own lip necklace! YEAY!

I got the Rose Gold one, as you'll see below, but…there are tons to choose from. Also below. 
After I choose the winner…I'll contact you to get your choice & have it shipped directly to you! 
I hope you all love it as much as I do! 
It's as gorgeous as it gets!

Welcome, September.



Welcome, September.
One of my very favorite months! Here's to all of us…& an extra bit of love to all those who share their Birthday month with me! May this month bring us ALL…love, laughter, & all the happiness our hearts can hold!

I'm in the process of moving my craft room from my home, to our office, & then converting my old room into a new closet, so…after all the chaos is back in order…I have a lot of fun Giveaways & posts coming up! I can't wait to get back on track & show up a lot more often again! You guys are SUCH a special part of my days & I have really missed you. Looking forward to enjoying my last few weeks of Summer & then welcoming Fall with open arms! 

I sure hope all of you are wonderful & that your hearts & your worlds…are as happy as can be! You are loved, appreciated, & so so adored.

Have a beautiful night, Little Angels.

Updates...



Hey Gorgeous!
Where the eff have you been?
LOL.
I sure have missed you.
Where to even begin.
Let's go back to April.

My B left me a week before Easter to go to his camp, as he does every year (I posted about it here) & didn't come home till last week! INSANE, right? Cliff's Notes Version...he & my Brother, loaded up our Motor home & headed to Arizona. After the week of camp, they went to California to do another weeks worth of business. Upon arrival...one of our largest accounts needed some serious damage control & required more & more time...and four months later...my Hubby was FINALLY home! SO SO nuts! Especially when we've spent the last 6 years together...all day, every day.

During his time away, we seriously considered moving back to California to be closer to our business & of course...friends & family we miss so much. Our main office is in Orange County, & also where we've lived all our lives...up until 2 years ago. We're able to work from anywhere (Thank God) & do work from Texas now (where my family lives), but...with all this needed time & attention...we were willing to do what we had to do, if it was the best thing for our business. After much thought & looking at many homes (Me online & B in person)...we've decided to stay here & just travel back & forth every month, like we have been. 

With all this uncertainty though, I've waited to post any new Giveaways, start posting all my goods I wanna part with (Blog Sale/Poshmark), etc. I definitely didn't want to start something I couldn't keep up with. And...to keep it 100% real...I haven't been that inspired with my Hubby gone. Tough time for us, but...oh so necessary. It only made us closer. The tough times usually do. I told everyone I felt like a Military Wife & even though I've always had all the respect in the world for those who serve...I do even more now! Good Lord! It's nuts. SO great to have him home! We've spent all this week expanding our office & doing all the necessary moving & re-decorating. We should be all done in one more week & then...I'M ALL YOURS! 

I can't tell you how much I've missed all of you, & the connections I feel when I'm here on a regular basis. I'd love to be here every single day, but since Blogger doesn't pay my bills...I've gotta work SOME time! LOL. Seriously though...I often stop by & see all your adorable faces & it always amazes me, that not only have all of you stayed with me, but some of you have even just joined our Kandy Family! So crazy & it means EVERYTHING to me. Your endless love, devotion, friendship, & support...mean so much more than words. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. 

Stay tuned for many more posts, giveaways & friendship building! 
Even though I'm MIA sometimes...as long as you want me...I'm not going anywhere! 
HUGE Love & Hugs to all of you.
You're such a beautiful part of my life & I couldn't be more grateful to you & for you.
Oh & BTW...I SUCK at tweeting & spend most of my time on Facebook & Instagram, so if you wanna see me/hear from me daily...all my links are to your right! 

Have a beautiful night, Loves.
Until later...

6. Try to make at least three people smile each day.
7. Don’t waste your precious energy on gossip, energy vampires, issues of the past,negative thoughts or things you cannot control.Instead invest your energy in the positive present moment.
8. Eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like acollege kid with a maxed out charge card.

12. You don’t have to win every argument. Agree to disagree.

POSHMARK or Blog Sale?



Ok Gorgeous…I have a question for you?
POSHMARK or Blog Sale?
I have A LOT of brand new, some with tags on still, too good for a yard sale…treasures that I need to get rid of, and…I'm trying to figure out the best way!
Preferably…a stress free & time efficient method…if at all possible.
The biggest challenge I'm coming across is the shipping. I'm way too busy to fuss with all that madness.
AIN'T NO BODY GOT TIME FOR THAT!
LOL.
So…here are my options…
I've just discovered POSHMARK, which is a site/app, that allows you to post your items, as many photos as you want, no sign up fees, AND they pay for your shipping for you. After your item is sold…their team with notify you via email, with an attached shipping label & you print it out, package up your goods, & drop it off at the post office. But…they take 20% of your money.

On the other hand…I could just post my items on here, receive all the money…but…have to deal with all shipping myself. I actually don't mind going to the post office, since I would have to go there either way, but…how in the world do I figure out shipping fees beforehand, to add to my price? I know about the scales you can get & all that "home shipping stuff", but…another thing I'd have to spend my time figuring out. LOL. 

What would you do?
I'd love to know your input & I'd LOVE to share all of my treasures with all of you!
How would you prefer to shop?
That's the most important question.
If you could let me know your thoughts…I would greatly appreciate it!
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
I can't WAIT to get started! 


And Because I love you so...


I love & appreciate you all! 
Have a beautiful day!
