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.

Let’s talk Natural!

All of the most decadent runways featured this look for summer 2015, naturally gorgeous is the way to show off this sultry beach season! Last week we talked about the ease, beauty and coverage of mineral makeups, keeping up with the summer trend of easy, let’s talk natural.

Studio Makeup at Adamo
You already have the sun kissed glow, and I know you’ve been getting regular massages and facials, I’ve seen so many of you already this summer! The weather has been gorgeous and summery, the cool air of the spa has definitely been a lovely relief for all of us. All you need to dress up your look is a quick wash of color on your cheeks, line your eyes with a neutral color smudged gently under and above the lash line, and a swipe of a nude lipgloss or your favorite naked lipstick. BostonMints comes in over a dozen natural hues to tempt you…

Sunshine DaysSunny Day
Feel like that’s not enough color for you? Need a little more flair? Add that red lipstick that makes you swoon, keep the rest glowing and ethereal, and let your lips pop with color. If you are loving the sun kissed naked look, simply add something else. Accessorize ~ it can be a sparkly hair barrette, or those gladiator sandals that are too racy to be worn with eyelashes, you choose. Remember the rule, less is better. I offer personalized makeup lessons at Studio Makeup, we will consult with you about your specific needs, skin type and lifestyle. My clients are educated and satisfied, leaving the spa energized and enthusiastic to try new or classic makeup trends at home.

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!

Overview

  • Handmade item
  • Materials: Spearmint Leaf Oil, Ascorbic Acid, Tocopheryl Acetate, Antioxidants, Aloe Vera, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Isostearyl Palmitate, Iron Oxides
  • Made to order
  • Ships from Boston, Massachusetts

 

Order yours today and be sure to check out all my other great colors available, including the NEWEST in my line,  Back Bay Berry and STRONG.

I’m thinking about some down and dirty, absolutely indulgent spa parties!

Find your best Combination!

On the go these days? I know we’ve certainly been busy here at the spa. Any free time I have, especially as a makeup artist, I don’t want to spend fussing too much over my face. Lately I’ve been packing along a compact with sheer minerals that I can just swoosh on, if I need to. Easy peasy, lip gloss and go!

on the run

Mineral makeup is easy to use, portable, affordable and good for your skin. Hypo-allergenic and Gluten Free makes it a win for normal, oily or sensitive skin. Mineral makeup can also be used as a sunscreen on your face, just be sure it has an SPF of 25 or above please. Our skin is our largest organ, and so beautiful when we take care of it properly.

Scarlet Letter

With so many fabulous beaches and seaside towns along the Massachusetts coast, you would be hard pressed to find a day free to visit them all. Historical and chock full of food and shopping, it is the perfect destination for the day or evening!

Cocktails and seafood anybody? Pickering Wharf is great for laying out a blanket and watching the clouds go by or the stars twinkle.

You may only know Salem from the famous Witch trials, or think it’s only worth going at Halloween. I’ll take July over October in a coastal town any day! I can’t lie though, if you can make it to salem for Halloween ~ you won’t be disappointed!

Nathaniel Hawthorne (/ˈhɔːˌθɔrn/; born Nathaniel Hathorne; July 4, 1804 – May 19, 1864) was an American novelist and short story writer.

BostonMints has the lipgloss with a giant nod to Salem, and the magic that it is! Scarlet Letter lipgloss is the juiciest and mintiest warm shimmery red you can find. The color goes on sheer and glossy, never sticky and can be layered with other colors for depth and dimension. Your lips will thank you for treating them with Vitamins E and C, and the healing protection of Aloe Vera. BostonMints come in two sizes, full and purse, for all of your pockets! Order yours today and be sure to check out the full line of BostonMints colors, including the new Back Bay Berry and STRONG.

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. Vitamin C, E and Aloe Vera are essential to your lips health, a refreshing spearmint flavor keeps your lips cool and plump. Never tested on animals and also gluten free, it will suit even the most particular client. Order your BostonMints lip gloss today and be sure to check out other Summer Favorites, P-Town Pink, Vineyard Bluff and Mint-Ticket Red.

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!
