Pop Fizz Peach. 

Poking around @BosBloggers and found this! Oh My! I’ll muddle mint every chance I get. Gonna pin this to my inspiration board too! ❤ Joanne

This hot, steamy, humid weekend called for a serious cool-down concoction. I’ve seen this idea of adding popsicles to cocktails on Pinterest before, and this felt like the perfect time to try it out. In a wine glass I muddled a few mint leaves and sliced peaches,  poured in some chilled vodka, and topped off the glass with half an IZZE sparkling peach. Then for the finishing touch, a peach popsicle dunked in to keep things cool! And the best part is that you get to snack on the popsicle while you enjoy your drink! Cheers!

Like a Pro!

I love to get my makeup done when I’m going to an event, or if I have the urge to make a quick change when I’m out and about on a busy day. Walk through a Nordstrom or a Sephora anytime of day and you’ll see young and old women alike, sitting up neatly on a cosmetics stool, having pretty palettes applied to their faces. I like to watch anybody having mascara applied, we make crazy faces when we do it ourselves, never mind a stranger with great make up, coming at you with a black wand. I am a highly skilled and trained professional make up artist, I enjoy playing in the field too. I’m really just a girl who loves a tube of new lipstick and the crack of a fresh slick glossy mascara. Why do we sometimes need, and always love to get our makeup done?

Lets tackle the obvious first. Weddings, interviews, head shots and anywhere you may be in a photo album for the next 100 years, should be done by a pro. Absolutely, no questions asked. There are so many variables of photography that are easily taken care of by somebody trained. The reason, not the only reason obviously, all of those photos in the magazines look great – the models makeup was applied properly and professionally. She doesn’t have shadows in strange places and doesn’t have a shiny nose and red ears. When you know you have a big event or something extra special, just make an appointment, you’ll spare yourself the worry and you won’t regret it ever.

Did you know there is a spa in New York that you can sign up for a monthly club and get your makeup done as often as you want? Seriously, go in before work every day and have your makeup applied by a pro. They also have the same operation for blow outs and waxing. It’s brilliant in my eyes, and everybody is groomed properly. Realistically, not many women can spare the time daily, and while the cost is more than reasonable it won’t be happening for me anytime soon. The point is – it’s there, and successful. We feel more confident, successful and sexy when we look our best and freshest selves. That’s a fact.

At Studio Makeup I offer makeup services for all of your needs, daily if you’d like, but I would much rather teach you how to be daring and gorgeous on your own. You can schedule an application for a special event or a full session with consultation. application and education.

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.

The secret stance on foot therapies…

Since when do winners, movers and shakers start at the top? We don’t ladies. Clearly as evolution intended, we need to start at the bottom. Not to worry, I’m talking about feet, not doing 10 sets of squats between other tasks of monotony. This is essentially physiology 101, take care of those tootsies and you’ll be a happier woman, with a springier step and a stronger stance! Take a friend or a lover for a short retreat of nirvana, we have special treatment rooms designed exclusively for two. Adamo Day Spa has the toe to head relief you need!

The benefits of foot massage are almost endless; improving circulation and reducing swelling, relief from plantar fasciitis, strengthening of the ankles and lowering blood pressure are just a few. You should note that foot therapies are also known to improve your sex life and increase your libido, reduce the symptoms of PMS and menopause, help with headaches and migraines and give you a clear sense of well being. You can’t really argue with any of that, unless you’re dead set against bliss.

We offer a full menu of foot therapies and spa pedicure services available to choose from at Adamo. Our signature spa pedicure is a local favorite and includes an invigorating lemongrass exfoliating scrub, followed by a soothing massage using warm basalt lava stones and shea butter, after a hydrating wrap around your feet, choose any fine color polish or a natural nail buffing. It’s the best treatment you’ll get on the South Shore!  Most of our services include a neck and arm massage ~ an extra treat & value!

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!

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!

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.
