Rowe’s Wharf? I say Rose Wharf!

Looking for something to do over the weekend or maybe on a weeknight for something to mix up the work week? Take yourself right down to Rowe’s Wharf in our states diverse and swanky capitol. The wharf was built in 1987 and is anchored by the now iconic Boston Harbor Hotel, it’s giant arch encompassing the harbor, for locals and travelers to enjoy. There is a busy marina, with fast and easy boat travel to Hingham and Logan International Airport. Boutiques bustle with the foot traffic of summer weather. It’s not always fun to walk around in the cold winter months. Have a afternoon cocktail, splurge on sunshine and the beauty of window boxes overflowing with flowers, next to our famous Boston Landmarks.

Boston Harbor Rowes Whart

I thoughtfully created the BostonMints lipgloss color Rose Wharf, after I spent a weekend at the gorgeous hotel and was taking an early morning walk while the city was still quiet.The blush pink flowers were still moist from sunrise and the color was stunning. I knew Rose Wharf would be the iconic sheer blush pink you could swipe on your lips. Sheer and cool naturally or layered with a lipstick for depth and an extra punch.

BostonMints lipgloss is the everyday lip product you need in your bag. Find your perfect color, or mix and match with 16 gorgeous naturally good for you shades. Vitamins E & C, Aloe and Spearmint for extra plumping and freshness keep your lips in top shape.

Shimmering Bean Towne

Google the word Beantown and everything about Boston comes up on your screen. Food, Fenway, fashion and everything in between can be found in this historic and foot traffic friendly capitol. But why beans? And how come you never hear anybody who lives here, EVER refer to it as such?

Without boring you to pieces with a history lesson, the nickname Beantown was thought to originate with the earliest settlers in Massachusetts. In colonial Plimoth beans were a staple item in the pantry. Beans were always on the menu. Honestly, in my mind, that doesn’t sound very appealing, no pun intended. Needless to say the legume is very healthy for you. The nickname and it’s origins  have come around a few times, but it has nevertheless stuck through history, and legend carries on today.

My BostonMints lipgloss color Bean Towne is the color for 2015! Similar to the Pantone color of the year ~ it virtually goes with everything. A gorgeous rich universal hue, you’ll love how full and rich your lips look and feel. Protect, pamper and heal with vitamins C & E and Aloe. Refreshing spearmint keeps your lips and breath cool and minty. Longer lasting than regular lipgloss and made to layer with your other favorite lip colors, you’ll never go wrong!

Plum Island Sand

Located in Essex County, on the North Shore of Boston, Plum Island has been a favorite for families and and school trips for many years. The name Plum Island often conjures up images of picnics, fishing or walking on sandy beaches. Fruit possibly comes to mind also. The island was named for what was known as the beach plum, growing wild on the dunes over a hundred years ago. Today you’ll find boutiques, local eateries and Bed & Breakfasts to stay the night. At the southern end of the island is Sandy Point State Reservation, a day use only state park. You’ll find the last lighthouse on the island at the northern tip. Pack a picnic and a soft blanket and make a day of it. Watch the sunset and the boats pass into the evening. Don’t forget your bug spray though, you’ll surely regret it!

IMG_7833

I created the color Plum Island Sand with the beach dunes of Plum Island in mind. The color is sheer and cool, like the cold water that laps at the shores. BostonMints is an all natural product, created for my clients with the most distinctive and quality ingredients available.

Coconut Oil and Hydration

We have all been hearing about the multiple fantastic benefits for our bodies by using Coconut Oil in the kitchen. It is known to have so many helpful and healing properties. I am so amazed at all of the healing and luxurious benefits coconut oil has on the outside of the body too. All of it, including your hair and scalp! Studies have shown that the hydration of the skins surface is improved and it helps smooth and heal extra rough patches; heels & elbows better than moisturizer.

BlendBeautifully_AdamoDaySpa

That’s precisely why it is a key ingredient in my newest BostonMints lip gloss colors, Back Bay Berry and STRONG. Smoothing, healing and hydrating, that’s the answer to beautiful luscious lips. Cocounut Oil also has anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and anti-bacterial properties. It is the product to keep in your bathroom cabinet for everyday access.

Cold pressed coconut oil melts easily between your hands or can be scooped into a warm bath for a luxurious full body moisturizing experience. You can use it as an under eye cream or a highlighter for your cheeks. It leaves your legs smooth as silk when used to shave with a traditional razor. I am sure once you start using coconut oil for some of your grooming needs, you’ll come up with lots of other ideas for this wonderful (and delicious) oil. Be sure to check out the my new colors full of the amazing benefits from coconut oil, also vitamin E & C with a pop of spearmint! Have a fantastic day, see you at Adamo!

We all know the Pilgrims came onto land and settled in the coastal town of Plymouth. What we don’t always know is that the Pilgrims originally rolled into Provincetown Harbor first and had to hold firm for many weeks for safety and health reasons, before they decided to sail across and settle in Plymouth. Just like the Pilgrims, many people still believe the first stop for summer fun is in Provincetown. Known as P-Town to locals, it is located at the very tip of Cape Cod in Massachusetts.

PROVINCETOWN, MA - JUNE 19: Tranquil scene at Commercial Street on June 19, 2010 in Provincetown. Provincetown was the site of the first landing of Mayflower and is now a major travel destination.

PROVINCETOWN, MA – JUNE 19: Tranquil scene at Commercial Street on June 19, 2010 in Provincetown. Provincetown was the site of the first landing of Mayflower and is now a major travel destination.

A world wide tourist destination P-Town has it all. Magnificent beaches and glorious sand dunes for summer fun, water sports or just lounging under an umbrella reading a favorite book. Art galleries and eclectic boutiques line the cobblestone streets that fill with friends, families, and festivals for the best months of the year. Music can be heard while you stroll from the various outdoor lounges and award winning restaurants.

BostonMints P-Town Pink is the essential lip gloss that embodies everything that P-Town is. Dress this cool shimmery pink up with your nighttime glamour for any carnival, or simply swipe it on with your sunglasses and bathing suit in the morning. My lip glosses are designed to be long lasting, never sticky and always the healthiest choice for a supple, gorgeous smile. Made for layering and mixing and matching, it’s you’re most versatile tool in your makeup case. You can feel great knowing we never, ever test our products on animals and my formula of beneficial Vitamins and Aloe Vera, boosted with spearmint is always natural and Gluten Free.
