The New You

I was always photogenic growing up. It’s no secret that as the years pass, things change. Let’s put it this way, I look much better in real life like most of you. :) However, today, with the  iphone, facebook, dating sites, you name it, it’s all about pictures. No one would even think about meeting you if your picture wasn’t stunning. So about a few years ago, I decided that if I wanted a really nice picture of myself, I had to look for a professional to take it. I found her by chance in the same ulpan class that I was in at Ulpan Moresha in Jerusalem.

Melissa Berg. She made aliyah from Toronto and was taking photographs in between classes of some of my classmates. When I saw the final result, I thought WOW!! THIS GIRL IS GOOD!

Melissa’s talent runs in her family. Her mother won a photographic competition, and a picture of Melissa and a friend was published in a magazine.

Sit Back and Enjoy a Deeply Satisfying Experience

It’s no secret that winter is a disastrous time and season for your skin. The on going heaters in your home makes you feel warm and cozy but on the other side completely dries out your skin making it red and scaly. Finger nails become brittle and break at the wrong angle.  Let’s be honest, if you’re like me, sometimes you just need to pamper yourself as I did today. I treated my hands and nails to a wonderful very satisfying experience at Tamara Beauty Clinic on Rechov Hillel in Jerusalem. My nails hadn’t seen a manicurist in weeks and needed badly attention. After cuticles were cut, nails were filed and shaped. Which color would you choose?

The color was chosen. Essie deep brown almost black varnish.

Magnificent Manicures

1017527_684319324915423_298729275_nI don’t know about you but I used to love getting my weekly manicures when I was living in NJ.

In my neck of the woods, there are nail salons popping up on every corner. Not in Jerusalem. You have to be pretty lucky to find a good address. When I immigrated to Israel five years ago, I searched everywhere for a clean friendly salon carrying the latest nail varnishes or at least fashionable colors besides red and orange.  After playing detective, I did find that most of the hair salons have their own manicurist/beautician. But you pay higher prices than the norm for the service.

I searched and searched and found a gem. Tamara Beauty Clinic is located on 18 Rechov Hillel in Jerusalem’s center of town. The owner is Jenny, a graduate of the Cosmetica Bet Sefer School, who has been a beautician since 2002.

which color are you going to choose?Upon entering the small salon, I felt like I was in nail polish heaven. Rows of colors from notorious brands such as OPI, Essie, Chanel, Dior, and others cover the walls. Coffee or tea is offered. It’s a very friendly atmosphere. The salon is always busy so make sure you call and book ahead.   050-8803-755. Jenny gets locals, tourists mostly from Paris and the United States as well as students.
