My USA Fiancee Visa Immigration Experience & Life Update

Hey Beauty Bees,

As I write this I am sitting in Chicago Midway Airport on my 3 hour layover flight from my Sarnia to Boston trip. I have been in my home town for 4 months and now it is time for me to go back home.

Although this is not a topic that is related to my blogs niche of beauty or fashion, it is a topic that has and will make a huge impact on my life and I figured I would let the world learn a little bit more about me.

This is going to be my full experience of going through the process of getting a US K1 Fiance Visa. It will be a longer post so just a forewarning.

The "Me Time" Tag

Hey Beauty Bees,

I found this really awesome tag online the other day and with all the craziness that has been going on with my life in the past few weeks, I can totally use some me-time which is the main topic of this tag. 

Come take a peek into what I am doing and loving when I am not blogging, working or sleeping. Also stay tuned for a special "Life Update" post going up tomorrow all about the "craziness" that I mentioned above.

I tag all bloggers to try out this tag. Now onto the questions...

What do you watch / read during me-time?

Usually during me time I am watching the new episodes of some of my favorite shows such as The Flash, The Big Bang Theory, Suits and Dancing with the Stars. If it is a night that these shows are not on I am binge watching something on Netflix which at the moment is Pretty Little Liars.

The Best and Worst Red Carpet Looks of the 2015 Oscars

Hey Beauty Bees,

Last night the 87th annual Academy Awards, aka Oscars, were on  and you know there was no way I was going to miss them. They were hosted by Neil Patrick Harris, who did an amazing job especially during his opening where he broke into dance and song including Anna Kendrick and Jack Black into his charades. It was hilarious but heart warming at the same time.

Throughout the night many awards went out to well deserving people such as Patricia Arquette, Julianna Moore, J.K. Simmons and Eddie Redmayne. Best motion picture went to Birdman and many great performances were done by Maroon 5, Lady Gaga, and Tim McGraw.

My favorite part is always the Red Carpet and what the celebrities are wearing while walking down that long stretch of spot light. I have put together my top 5 best and worst outfits of the night. These are my own opinions and what I thought looked good or not. I do encourage you to leave in the comments if you disagree with me as I always love hearing other peoples opinions.

Beauty Buzz Trial - Ipsy Bag February 2015 "#IPSYLOVE"

Hey Beauty Bees,

February's Ipsy bag is here and I could not wait to rip thru that packaging to get to the products I was highly anticipating for. If you read my Ipsy review from last month (check it out here), you would know that I was very disappointed in that bag and was hoping for better this time around. I always rate and review my products on my blog as well as on the actually website and I feel like Ipsy actually took all that into consideration this month. I am happy with every single product they sent me this month and I can not wait to share them with you.

Spring 2015 Beauty Wishlist

Hey Beauty Bees,

With this very long cold Winter, I am definitely looking forward to the Spring. I am ready for brighter colors and bold statements. Since there has been so many storms where I live, I have been stuck inside alot watching Netflix and messing around on my computer. This has caused me to do alot of online window shopping...surprisingly not purchasing anything. 

I have created a beauty product wishlist for this upcoming season. There may be some items that are not exactly new but ones that I still would love to use for Spring. You will see alot of pastel colors as this is what I think of alot when I hear the word Spring. Come window shopping with me and let me know what products are on your wishlist.

Products I Would Not Repurchase

Hey Beauty Bees,

Sometimes we buy products on a whim that do not work out as well as we hope. Most of the time for me it is because they are on sale or I am just curious to try something new.

I have compiled a list of some of the products I have tried out in the last few months that I was not very impressed with. You may have had better experiences with them and I am in no way telling anyone not to try them out themselves. Everybody is different and certain formulas work better then others for certain people. These are just 6 products that I did not like and will not be repurchasing in the future.

Guest Post - 5 Ways To Treat Yo'Self on Valentine's Day by Kelsey Vickers

There are two types of people in this world - those who adore Valentine's Day and those who don't. If you're one of those who loves it but your boo-thang is nonexistent this year, you're probably beside yourself right now.

Luckily, V-Day doesn't just have to be about showing love to your significant other. In my opinion, the most important person you should show love to is the one looking back at you in the mirror. So if you're spending the day alone, here's some of my favorite ways to treat myself!
--- --- ---

1. Pamper yourself.

This is my #1 favorite thing on this list. I love pampering myself - any day of the year, really!
My personal pampering ritual usually includes a bubble bath, exfoliating/moisturizing, maybe a little wine (depending on the night - if you're of age, of course!), a mani/pedi, and a couple of DIY beauty treatments. I like making my own hair masks, face masks and body scrubs, Check out some of my favorite recipes here!

Valentines Day Date Night Outfit Ideas

Hey Beauty Bees,

February is here and everybody knows that this is the month of hearts and roses. Valentines Day is only 10 days away and the date night plans are beginning to be pieced together. Whether you are going out with you husband, boyfriend, friends, family or just spending the day with yourself, you can still have a great day and dress up for the occasion.

Personally, I feel that a dress is always the best choice on Valentines Day since it makes me feel so girly and I love to dress up like a princess anytime I can get the chance. If dresses are not your fortay, there are many different outfit options out there. I have pieced together many different types of dresses for you to choose from in different colors and prints. 

If you are really into the classic colors of Valentines Day, these red and pink dresses are a great choice. Match them with plain black or metallic accessories and you are ready for any type of event.
