The Team That Plays Together, Stays Together

Our team is fairly new.

Not to massage, not to the industry, just to each other.

Since we don’t get to spend a lot of time together in the same room, it’s fun to hang out and enjoy life outside the quiet massage room.

In September, some of us went to a cooking class (complete with wine) at 4 Brothers Gourmet Deli & Market in South Hadley!

Cheers to (part of) our team!
Amy, Leanne, Kim, and Ariel are pictured above.

Thanks to the chef brought in by the owner of 4 Brothers, Michelle, we learned to make crepes and homemade pasta, with sauce!

It’s important for our crew to live, laugh, and love while we play, so we can continue to bring you our best when we are at work!

Speaking of 4 Brothers Gourmet Deli, we are happy to say, we will be there one Thursday evening a month at one of their 2 monthly wine-tasting events, doing free chair massages (and offering a coupon for future services!)

The next three dates we will be there are:

  • October 10th, 5-7pm
  • November 7th
  • December 5th

and I certainly couldn’t build SkinCatering without them!

Livin’ In The Hall of Fame

On September 26th, 2013 the leading ladies of Western Massachusetts banded together for our Winners Photo-shoot that will be featured in the October issue of the Western Massachusetts Women’s Magazine.

You remember my Karen’s Angels video compadres right? Karen Boyd of Mix 931, and Meghan Rothschild & Emily Gaylord of Chikmedia.

Well Karen, myself, and Emily all won for our categories (we’re putting all our efforts into votes for Meghan next year!) so we Harlem-Globe-Trotted down to the Basketball Hall of Fame, in Springfield MA and got our professional pics taken.

After our group photo we had to wait for individual head shots to be done … What’s that saying about idle hands?

With so many props around us, it was difficult to behave…

Gasp!

After our individual photos were done, we found our way over to The Colony Club in downtown Springfield, MA where we were treated to champagne, shrimp cocktail, and a gourmet cheese platter, to celebrate our success!

And of course, no evening celebration would be complete without a belly dancing lesson from Emily!

Thank you again, everyone who voted for us!  We appreciate it!

The awards dinner is on October 10, 2013. We’ll be sure to bring our cameras since we’ll be all dolled up.
