Scarlet Letter

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!

Body, Mind and Spirit

While on vacation in Carlsbad I discovered the mesmerizing and healing treatments in the Ayurveda. This practice is one of the oldest forms of holistic whole body healing. It is grounded in the belief that wellness and whole health depend critically upon the balance between body, mind and spirit. If that feels like a lot, don’t worry I’ve taken all the guesswork out of it for you!

Adamo Day Spa has a menu of special Ayurvedic treatments to help you restore the missing balance in your body. All of the services can be booked on their own or added on to another service you are receiving.

Neem Oil & Scalp Treatment with de-stressing scalp and neck massage. This is a perfect add on to any service. The oils will condition your hair and scalp and you will leave almost floating on air.

Dosha Body Wrap – includes a short quiz to find out your body type – Pitta, Vatta or Kalpha. Your treatment will include oils and lotion specific to your type. The Bindi oils are yours to take home when we are finished. This energizing and balancing luxury treatment begins with dry brushing to stimulate the lymphatic flow, your therapist will then continue the full body massage with the oils that were chosen.

Shirodara – This is the treatment for frayed nerves. The warm oil pours over the forehead in a continuous steady stream from a copper vessel. This quiets the excess activity in the brain, leaving you with an almost unshakeable inner stillness and sense of calm. This is a fantastic treatment for anybody who suffers with insomnia, anxiety or the generally over stressed.

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.

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!

The green light to wear red!

You know it when you see it. The woman who steals the room with fully painted luscious & supple red lips. Scarlett O’Hara, Marilyn Monroe and even Mary Poppins kept their lovely kissers painted red. All show stoppers! They look full, healthy and because she is applying it properly and using the proper red for her skin tone, she hits the mark every time.

The best color red for you will brighten your face, make your smile appear larger and whiter, and define the facial feature that gets looked at most! Not all women feel confident in a fully pigmented shade of red, maybe a lip stain or for a sure hit every time, BostonMints lip glosses in Scarlett Letter, Go Sox! Red or Mint Tuckett Red. You only make a first impression once, don’t make the mistake of your lips making that statement alone.

I want that mouth to compliment your face, not override it.

Let me help you sort out those tubes of lipstick you’ve been hoarding in a little box in the drawer. Call today and make your appointment for a personal professional makeup application and instruction.

Spa Dads

Father’s Day is this weekend and Adamo Day Spa has everything you need to take care of the special men in your life. Men often forget about skincare and nourishing the skin on their bodies.

We have a line of specialized treatments designed just for men. Everybody deserves to look and feel their best. Mens skin specifically, takes a beating daily. They shave, slap some alcohol after shave on their face, ignoring the rest of the body and walk out the door. Most men are not taught how to take care of their skin, and they certainly don’t want a fussy regimen like women are willing to stick to!

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.
