December 2010 will forever be my most memorable moth, due to an unforgettable experience in Los Angeles as I got to meet my youtube (and life) guru Kandee Johnson
I flew out to Los Angeles to attend her makeup seminar called “Glaminar” (She combined the words seminar and glamour) and it was also the last one she would be giving.
My Kandee adventure started out this way:
I was in a bad shape both mentally and physically that year. Some heavy stuff happened in a too short amount of time and I just couldn’t deal with the world anymore. Then one day I stumbled upon a tutorial by Kandee Johnson on Youtube (a Lauren Conrad makeup How-to) and right there and then I was captivated by her skills and personality. So as I kept on seeing her videos something happened to me inside. This woman had the power to make me feel sparkles again and not only did she inspire me to become a Makeup Artist, she pulled me out of that dark place I was in, through Youtube. So yeah, of course I had to meet her!
She is one of the main reasons I got through that rough patch and this picture
means the world to me. I’ve taken control again of my life and I’m heading towards a new direction all thanks to her inspiring words and love.
That same weekend I was in Los Angeles I also got to be part of Kandee’s baby shower and I met so many lovely girls!
Thank you all so much for letting me be part of the Glam family!!!
Here’s a peek in to the Kandee Johnson’s Glaminar:
I’ve learned so much, it wasn’t just all about make-up but also how to deal with life when unexpected things happen and making yourself stand out. Kandee is one big pile of love!!! And she radiates that together with so much energy and happiness.
At the end we all got to talk with her and hug her. I will cherish this memory for life as she pushedAt me in the right direction and I’m on top of things again.
I met her mother Shannon and sister Tiffany and they where also super nice, I was truly amazed to see so much love in one family.
This trip is the best gift ever to myself and it will always remind me to follow my dreams and just keep on going. Made a friend for life there too, Sandra:
Stay tuned for the rest of my L.A. trip and shopping experience!
