Baltimore to New York

Baltimore to New York

So I moved to New York… dun dun dun.  It felt like a big deal at first, but after being here for a couple of weeks now, I have started to get my groove back.  There are however two things at the top of my list that I need to cross up ASAP.  The first is to find a permanent apartment and the second is to find a New York based photographer to work with on my blog.  While I would love to have my Baltimore photo buddy come here everyday, it is just not realistic :(  I miss you already Glen…

I have lived in New York before, it was nearly six years ago, and boy have things changed.  Rent is almost 210% higher and Harlem doesn’t at all look the same.  One thing that I never had the chance to experience while I lived in New York is being a TOURIST.  I plan to take some time to really tour this city which means, I will hopefully continue to improve on my photography skills.  This weekend in fact, I plan to bike across the Brooklyn Bridge and visit Ground Zero.  What is even better?!? I plan to keep a video/photo diary to share with you guys.

Stay tuned.

Spa Day at Four Seasons Baltimore

Hey! It’s Jamaya, Four One Oh’s freelance beauty connoisseur. As a makeup artist, my top focus is always skin care. I am a self professed skin care junkie! My medicine cabinet is filled to the brim with skin serums, cleansers and moisturizers. Naturally, I jumped at the chance to join Tia at the Spa at the Four Seasons. I decided to try the HydraFacial. This facial is best for all skin types. The facial involves the esthetician using a pen-like device to deliver a burst of water and various proprietary solutions onto the skin. They run the device back and forth over the skin to cleanse, exfoliate and treat the skin.

The multi-step process starts with a double-cleansing (once with a sea sponge and the hydra-pen) to remove any dirt, makeup or debris.  Next, a glycolic acid (7%) solution is used to exfoliate the skin. It aggressively removes the outer layer of dead skin which are common culprits for dry, dull and flaky skin. It also helps eradicate skin discoloration caused from sun-spots or age-spots.

Then, the esthetician uses a salicylic acid solution is used to perform extractions. An extraction is a technique used to remove clogged pores (blackheads, whiteheads, etc) This step is IMPORTANT as it prevents breakouts, pimples and acne.

Last, my skin was infused with a hyaluronic acid serum to hydrate and lock in moisture. Making the skin look softer, smoother and plumper. And topped off with a light moisturizer.

Afterwards, my skin was on major FLEEK! I walked out the spa with glowy, supple and radiant skin. The procedure took less than 30 mins but the results are worth it! It’s both efficient and effective. Two attributes that make any service a keeper!
