Hi! I am Lindsay, a 29-year-old Barbie enthusiast with a serious sweet tooth!  I also love shopping and anything fashion related. Extra curriculars for me include hanging out with my husband, watching football, reading celebrity gossip, baking, roller skating and bike riding.  And now blogging.

So, basically I got into the blog world about a year ago.  My sister is an avid blogger (check her out www.shelbystidham.com) and I started by reading her blog fairly regularly.  I then found a few other blogs I liked, and started following those fairly regularly as well.  Day after day my husband  would tell me to just go ahead and start my own.  After much back and forth, candybarbie was born.  I am not a foodie, nor am I a crazy exercise addict, but the blogs I follow are about those very things! Go figure!  I want to write about the things that interest me.  I want to write about fashion, the latest trends, and myself! 

A bit more about me……

For the last 10 years, I have worked in pharmacy.  My husband and I both love, love, love to travel! Past trips have included France, New York, Egypt, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Chicago and the Bahamas.  But there are about a billion places we are dying to see!    Some of those include Greece, Rome, Spain, Germany and Bora Bora! Need to start saving up!

I  love movies!  Horror films, to be exact.  To me, the original Halloween is the greatest horror film of all time.  But I am also a HUGE fan of old black and white films.  I do feel I must add, though, that I don’t care for sad, heart-wrenching movies.  I DO NOT want to cry my eyes out while watching a movie.  To me, that is not entertaining.  I avoid the tear-jerkers, always.  Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorite actresses.  Love her.  I pretty much love (and own) all of her films.  Roman Holiday is my fav!

    Hope I’m not ruining the party by being the oldest fan of your blog. It is pretty awesome. Of course, I haven’t seen Shelby’s yet but I’m sure it is awesome too. I wonder how I got two, such awesome daughters?

    Hi Lindsay,

    I’m Nancy Perkins. I came across candybarbie.com and am very much impressed with your content. Nowadays, there are a very few websites like yours who give time and effort in providing quality and informative content.

    Are you doing the content all by yourself?

      Hi Nancy,

      I’m Lindsay’s husband. I know Lindsay is at work right now but yes, she’s doing everything by herself. There was a time about 6 months ago when I would occasionally sub in on posts (and would identify myself as doing so) but that was really before the blog became full time about fashion.

      She really does do a good job, huh? I can’t tell you how many times we’ve been in a store like Neiman Marcus and she grabs something off a rack randomly and say, “Oh! This would be really cute, huh?” and then like 3 weeks later a new US weekly comes and some celebrity is wearing it (and of course I hear the “remember, I told you so” LOL)

    Hi !
    I recently found your blog and I love it! I love your style!

    I was curious if you happen to be selling any of your clothing?


    • Thanks so much for reading! I really appreciate it! Several months ago I sold a few clothing items on ebay, but other than that, no, I am not selling anything at the moment. But I will certainly let you know if that changes anytime soon! And again, thanks for reading! xoxo

  14. Hi! I found you on Instagram last night! I love all your girly photos so much teehee!

  19. Hey Lindsay
    You are one hard person to get a hold of. I wanted to invite everyone in the Kaepernick to come join me at Sierra Woods Lodge. It is a place right off of Highway 80, about 45 mins from Reno and Tahoe. I will take care of all the rooms for you guys. I just would love to have you up here and spread the word on what we are like. Let me know if it is something that you are interested in. My phone number is 530-389-8900. Hope everything is well. Tell Kyle I said hello.

    Hi Lindsay,
    I found your blog and saw you were a barbie enthusiast. To be honest I never really liked to play with barbies but my father bought me one for every occasion. Some of them are very unique and beautifulSo I now have a large box filled with unopened babies and I’m not really sure what I should do with them. Any ideas? I could email you some pictures of them.
    Thanks Elise

    Hi Lindsay!

    My name’s Stephanie. I found your blog Friday while Googling, looking up information for a marketing agency I’m assisting. You have a great eye for fashion! I see you love traveling and events as well. I’ve talked to the agency owners about your media and we’d like to be in contact with you in hopes that you might be interested in writing some articles for us in magazines sometime.

    Friday we just launched the fan page on Facebook for a upcoming magazine “Metropolitian” focusing on luxury, upscale living in the Bay Area.

    Another magazine edited by the marketing agency is “FSHN” magazine.






    I’ve included links for you to check out.

    We’d love to hear back from you if you’re interested and I’ll put you in contact with the agency.
