Hello Pretties!!

My name is Candice Carter and I’m so happy you decided to stop by!

In my house, girls rule the roost. Naturally, everything thing revolves around all of our “pretties.” I was inspired by my girls to share all my “pretties” with you. I hope you will learn from my experiences and decide to kick back, relax, and hang out with me. I hope to make women everywhere feel better about and more confident in themselves.


DSC04337 I am a mommy and a wifey and I love spending time with my family. I have two little girls who help me enjoy my days with lots of dress up parties and tickle fights. They really have brought a new perspective in my life and I am enjoying every second of it. Yes, they are filled with plenty of drama and tears for seemingly no reason, or because “she is touching me”, but I wouldn’t trade any of it. I love jumping on the trampoline with them and blowing dandelions into the sky. I love watching  their eyes light up when they get a popsicle and when snowflakes land on their long eyelashes. I truly have never known pure joy until I became a mother. I also have truly never known true love until I saw their daddy meet them for the first time and see how much he loves them. He is such a huge blessing in my life and the best daddy and prince charming for all three of us. And yes, he even has a t-shirt that our little Cinderella’s make him wear when we reenact the fairly tale.

I am a kidnapping survivor. I use to always be so scared to talk about what happened to me, but I have now decided that it is a part of me and who I am and what makes me, me. I hope that my story can help someone and even help save someones life. Never. Stop. Fighting. You can read my story here.

I am licensed cosmetologist and have been in the beauty industry for some time I can’t get enough of it.  I love helping others learn and I recently became an educator for an amazing company. I love going to local beauty schools to teach them correct procedures and all the latest trends. 

I am a huge believer that sometimes pizza, crying and Coca-Cola will make everything feel better. I love dance parties, sunshine, anything chocolate, melted gummy bears, chick flicks, and love songs.  


I hope that with my site I can help women take time for themselves and help them feel beautiful on the inside and the out. You will find great tips and trends in hair, fashion, makeup, and anything else I can come up with. I also secretly love parties and decorating, so you’ll find a bit of that in here too. I want mothers and women to be able to embrace and love who they are no matter the trials they are going through. You are not alone! Let’s grow together, learn from each other, and become a tribe of supporters.  Thanks for stopping by and don’t forget to check out some of my most popular posts.
