Sooo Sorry!

Hello Everyone!!

First of all.....I feel horrible because I have been neglecting my poor little blog. I really need to be better about this, don't I?

Second of all....its been EXTREMELY hot here in the Mitten. The heat has been zapping all the energy I have for the most part. I feel like I have so much to do but have no motivation to do any of it.
I hope all of you have been keeping cool and safe in this extreme heat wave! I feel like when I apply my make-up, it is going to melt right off!

Anywhoozles....I hope all of you have had a great week!

Love and Kisses,
Candi Marie

Shorter Bangs??

Soooo, I have been trying to grow out my bangs, but then in a fit of frustration, I trimmed them up. I can't decide if I like them or not.

What do YOU think?
I appreciate ANY feedback!

Sundress FUNdress!

The weather has been seriously warm! Thankfully, my workplace has established its"Summer Attire" dress code, which means, sundresses, sandals, and other warm weather apparel. Today, I have broken out my "Rollerskate" dress, which is a fun print featuring rollerskates and wheels!

The dress has spaghetti straps, so I wore a cream lightweight cardigan and bright pink beads.
I also got to wear these:
My glittery pink Hello Kitty flats. Yes, they are from the Girls section, but hey.....they FIT!
I hope everyone is staying cool with the rising temperatures!

Have a great day!

Love and Kisses,

Candi Marie

TEN Things I Love Thursday!!

Hello everyone!!!

It is officially thursday......which means that we are THAT much closer to the weekend. Despite the fact that its gloomy and rainy.....and will be for most of the weekend, that means I will get to do a lot of indoor activities a.k.a. CLEANING and DECORATING!
Anyways......on to the TTILT:

1. Rainy Days: I know rainy days can be spirit dampening....but I find them enjoyable. I like to snuggle on the couch with my kitties or my hubby and watch scary movies.

2. Biggby's Super Frozen Mocha Mocha's! They are soooooo good!

3. Hair flowers and fancy headbands: I have quite the collection. I love wearing anything with sparkles, feathers, or bows!

4.  Mark Ryden artwork: I love his work. I love the abstract and bizarre themes he uses as well as the cutesy imagery.

5. Good Friends: I have been blessed with many good friends and I am honored to have them in my life

6. My workspace: I feel like I practically live at work, so I decorated my workspace to make me feel at home. Its a mix of pinks, purples and other bright colors. Hello Kitty adorns my work area as well as pretty candleholders, pencil cups and more.

7. Black Gel Ink pens: Call me crazy, but I ONLY like to use Black Gel Ink pens when writing or signing my name. I always have at least ONE with me. Usually, there are at least 5 swimming around in my purse.

8. Andy Samberg and Justin Timberlake's SNL Digital Shorts: The newest one had me laughing in hysterics. AND the fact that Lady Gaga was in it was the sprinkles AND the icing on the cake! Pure AWESOME SAUCE!
See it here:

9. (since I just mentioned her) Lady Gaga: I love her! Her new album is excellent. I love what she stands for and that she doesnt care what anyone else thinks. She is intellegent, creative, and she cares about her fans. I am proud to call myself a "Little Monster"!

10. These two:

My husband and Step-Daughter, Evie.
They are two of my most FAVORITE people in the whole world.
I love them both soooo much!

That is about it today. Hope everyone is having a great Thursday!

Love and Kisses,
Candi Marie
