The Magic of Kandi

Style

The colorful accessories also known as Kandi is the self-respecting fashion trend of today. Kandi is a fashion statement and a symbol of PLUR. But how did Kandi come to be? A lot of you might assume that this trend started in the 90’s, but it’s much deeper than that.

Let’s take it back to the Caveman Era, the Ice Age, the Mesopotamian Era, even the Ancient Rome. These are all eras in which Kandi took place but where just know differently.

The meaning of PLUR is Peace, Love, Unity, Respect, the battle cry of the rave culture. For those who don’t know what Kandi is, it is a plastic jewelry made from pony beads. It could be a bracelet, cuff, or necklace form.

So this is how it goes: the raver makes Kandi at home with heartfelt messages, amazing patterns or something that has to do with the event they might attend. At the event, when the two Kandi bearers see each other they may approach and ask to trade, that then follows with a special handshake with symbols such as peace, love, unity, and respect express throughout gestures. Then they slide a Kandi over the wrist completing the trade.

Travel

We always ask our selves these questions, What should I take on my trip?How can I make it easier to pack all the stuff I need? Well here is a tip, DON’T STRESS OUT!!!

Here’s a list of what will help you out:

Step 1: Choose Your Main Luggage

Make sure that you choose a luggage bag that will give you that space you need. It all depends on how many days you are going on this trip. You want to make sure that it’s not as damage because the presentation is always important.

Step 2: Organize Your Stuff

Organizing your bag it’s important because you always want to be able to choose clothes that are easy to pack, it’s also important to fold all of it nicely enough for it all to fit because remember there’s no need to pay for another luggage.

Step 3:  Pack Your Toiletry Bag

You can always set a bag to put all of your toiletry or also organize it in your luggage to avoid fees. Putting everything in Ziploc bags will be much easier, and it prevents having too many bags to carry.

Step 4: Prepare Your Personal Item Carry-On Bag (if taking one)

In my carry on bag is just a bag with maybe only my makeup, wallet, phone charger, phone, laptop, little things that might just help you keep track of and will prevent from getting lost or stolen.

Step 5: Collect All Important Travel Documents, Cash, and Credit Cards

Be able to keep everything in one place like, your credit cards, passport, ID, any money and well in this case don’t forget your EDC tickets.

Step 6: Travel Security

Being able to keep everything in place to prevent from stealing or lost. Keep in mind where you leave your things, I suggest a secure location.

Step 7: Prepare Your Home

Before leaving your house, you want to be able to keep everything safe and put away because even if you’re out on vacation taking care of your personal belongings, others might trying to enter your home to find them.

Hairstyles, Makeup, Outfits

At these events you can always go all out, is a place where you can be yourself. I love curling my hair and wearing a flower headpiece. You can also do two side braids; space buns are what’s popular today. You can color your hair, add some glitter.

Makeup is my ultimate favorite part. I love to add glitter and rhinestones; it’s something that I want to show you guys so I’ll be posting a video the days of the event to show you how I do my makeup from step one. So stay tuned for that video guys.

Outfits, well I honestly don’t go all out all I do recommend is to wear something comfortable and well with the heat you know what you have to where. Nice jean shorts and a cool t-shirt will work.
