I’m kind of a strange person.
I am not a big hugger. I hate the fake cheek kissing that has become so normal these days. I am not affectionate. I get uncomfortable when people get too close to me (outside of my husband).
However… I love getting massages. LOVE. IT.
Everytime I get a massage, I vow to make it a somewhat regular thing and never follow through. A part of it is the hassle of going to a spa (this is also why I didn’t cut my hair for nearly 2 years). Another part is the expense.
Back in March, a lovely blogger posted a contest on her page. She was recently licensed as a masseuse and was giving away 2 free massages. Obviously I entered and I was pleasantly surprised that I won! And it took me nearly 2 months to cash it in!
So if you live in Baltimore, I highly recommend that you set up an appointment with Claire Taylor. She operates out of her adorable row home near Patterson Park (but also out of a spa in Hampden). She also has a frequent customer deal (when you purchase X amount of massages, you get one 50% off). I will definitely be returning… especially at the end of June. June is setting up to be an incredibly hectic month for me with the BAZILLION home repairs that are about to take place.
Also – you should check out Claire’s blog. She posts lots of cute finds on Etsy, fun art finds and great fashion finds.
