Bees Beauty Bar and Spa

What makes you feel beautiful? What makes you feel relaxed? What makes you feel safe?

As women in today’s society, we have so much going on between working hard at our 9-5 then going home to work on the 5-9 gigs, going to school, raising kids, staying healthy and keeping a smile on our faces while juggling all the curveballs life throws at us. But luckily there is a space, a safe haven, if you will for women to go to feel beautiful, relaxed and safe. That place is Bees Beauty Bar and Spa.

I teamed up with Bees Beauty Bar and Spa makeup artist Monique to check out the space, get my makeup done and have a massage. And let me tell you, my experience was nothing short of fabulous!

If you follow along, you know I’m not a big makeup person so I chose to go with a look that’s not the norm for me – I wanted something bold. Before my appointment, I had been sneaking a peek at Monique’s Instagram page, so I knew I was in good hands. She’s a former MAC Makeup Artist who loves high glam but her present esthetic focuses on natural beauty.

I loved that Monique was super personable and made me feel like the best version of myself while I was in the makeup chair. She offered tips for my lipstick questions and even product suggestions. She even expressed that her goal is to make people look like the cool version of themselves and that’s exactly what she did for me!

I returned to Bees Beauty Bar for a morning of relaxation with a calming massage by massage therapist, Aspen. If you know me, I’m not the biggest fan of massages but I have had a crazy past few months so a nice, stress free morning was right on time. Aspen was super sweet and her massage was soothing.

Bees Beauty Bar Spa has been around for two years but recently re-opened with an expansion. The space is incredibly adorable with everything bee-themed as a nod to the owner, Bee. Bee wanted to create a space catered to the needs of black women in particular, which is why the entire staff is comprised of black females!

Each lady has perfected her craft in order to bring you the best possible experience at Bees Beauty Bar. And did I mention there are opportunities for spa parties, couples massages, manicures, super cute photos ops and so much more?!

If you’re in the metro Detroit area, book an appointment today. Visit the website to see a list of services as pricing. I know I can’t wait to go back!

#SELFCARE

I recently went through a stint of drama with a friend and finally realized that I needed to let go and do what was best for ME!

It was affecting my health, my happiness, and other relationships, so it was time for a little #selfcare.

For me, self care is doing what I want to do. With mental health such a huge topic these days, and personally being a sufferer if anxiety, it is extremely important to recognize when a little #selfcare is needed. Sometimes we forget that even though the world around us doesn’t stop, we have the power to stop ourselves from the world.

Take some time to do YOU! If that means shutting your phone off, cutting off someone you thought was in your corner, going to get a mani/pedi, laying by the pool or zoning out to your new favorite album, do it! Matter a fact, today I didn’t bring my work computer home because literally all I wanted to do was lay by the pool and write this post. And let me tell you, it feels great!

I VERY rarely get my nails done and this past Friday, I thought, you know what? I’m feeling sassy, I deserve this, get you some cute little gel acrylics, girl! This was part of my #selfcare.

Don’t forget how important your happiness is, so be sure to take some time for some #selfcare.
