Colorful You!

Do you know what colors look best on you? Most of us can simply look in our closet and see patterns of color or texture that works best for our bodies and skin. Neutrals, bold colors, all black? I never did wear that turquoise pantsuit… Why do our cosmetic cases become filled with random colors and textures that no matter how hard we try, they sink back to the bottom of the bag? Just like we do in fashion ladies, we need to choose the correct colors and textures that enhance the natural beauty and shapes of our faces.

Don’t be tempted by the razor.

What a great feeling to go bare, showing off that smooth, gorgeous skin. Anytime of year ~ I love the feeling of smooth, soft, hair free skin. Not having to shave everyday is an added, and time saving benefit! I know that most of you, like myself, don’t want to be hassled in the shower daily with a razor. It really is unnecessary ladies and I have the solution for all ages and all skin types.

tub_wAX

Adamo Day Spa waxing services are the coveted secret to baring it all with confidence. Specially formulated and imported from Bolgna, Italy, this pain free, hair hugging azulene wax will leave you with an impeccably smooth long lasting finish. My cousins in Italy have used it for years and having had the privilege to visit them and enjoy not only; the culture, arts, cuisine, but also the natural beauty regimens of generations of Italian women. This is not your traditional honey wax ladies. Essential oils and skin protectants prevent ingrown hairs while nourishing your skin, waxing can be done anywhere on your body, especially where shaving is a no no. Now is the perfect time for teens to try, during the summer when they (grown women do it all the time!) are tempted to pull out a razor, potentially causing embarrassing and often painful ingrown hairs.

Call today and set up your appointment and shave time, money and frustration everyday off your schedule! Get it and keep your showers hassle free.  To make your appointment call 781.383.3011 or email us at info@adamodayspa.com. Don’t forget all VIP Spa members always receive special perks and discounts.

La Isla Bonita

I’ve got a serious case of the eighties going through my mind and La Isla Bonita has been on loop since dinner.

BostonMints_Shells

In New England we are fortunate to have so many coastal towns to visit. Some of us venture up to Maine and New Hampshire. Others hit Newport, Rhode Island. Summers in Massachusetts take on as many different shades of color as the rocks that wash up on our shores.

Are you North Shore or South Shore? Cape Cod or Cape Anne? With so many top notch choices at our finger tips we typically become creatures of habit and stick with the destination filled with the most memories.

For many, the Islands call to them. Maybe you like to stroll Castle Island or run a trail race on Deer Island? If your island is of the Plum variety, you most likely own a pair of binoculars and enjoy watching the birds.

Then there are two. Two like no other place on earth. Like dueling pianos, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard each have their own variety of guests gathered around to eat, drink and be social. Both islands have a home town culture that seduces the average and not so average visitor, asking them to go steady.

The waves harmonize perfectly with each beach defining and redefining their shape; giving subtle nuances that make each island, as different as they are alike.

BostonMints has a color named for each of these Fraternal Twins; Mint Tucket Red and Vineyard Bluff.

Mint Tucket Red fits nicely in your basket while Vineyard Bluff goes well with a layer of Labrador. Never sticky or tacky and never ever tested on animals! Always Gluten free, paraben free, and lead free, it will be a go to favorite for your prettiest, plumpest lips. Check out and all my other colors in the collection today!

The Color of Love

The Swan Boats in Boston Common conjure up thoughts of happy little children, blush pink tulips and lovely white feathered birds floating alongside a tradition that has held strong for over a hundred years. In 1877 with the popularity of bicycles riding through the park, Robert Paget and others developed a catamaran with a big white Swan as housing to hide the captain peddling the paddles. The boats have changed little, it continues to be a local family tradition that captures the hearts of many.

BostonMints Swan Boat lipgloss is reminiscent of blush pink tulips and iridescent white feathers. The lightweight, long lasting gloss glides on the lips and immediately enhances the your natural lip color. A unique and healthy blend of Aloe and Spearmint oil heal, protect and refresh your lips. As a make up artist I designed BostonMints to enhance your makeup routine. The colors are made to experiment with, mix them up ladies! Swipe on some classic natural pink Swan Boat for the daytime, then layer it with your favorite lipstick at night to add some depth and volume. Swan Boat lipgloss is the youthful fresh pink that every woman can wear confidently.

BostonMints is always a healthy fresh choice to keep in your front pocket. Never sticky or tacky and never ever tested on animals!

Teen Time!

Remember playing with your first tube of lipstick? Practicing your pucker in the mirror and trying not to break the soft creamy point of color off of the tube. Eyeliner may have been the trickiest of the bunch. Should I put it on top, bottom, both or should I skip it altogether? As an adult I still love to experiment with makeup and I know for a fact the average woman is still questioning her makeup options, never mind her daughters!

I have created a Teen Makeup lesson and application as a healthy beginning and education on beautiful natural makeup for your teen. Bring in your daughters, nieces and friends; help them get started with healthy & modern beauty habits. (ages 10-16) We are all familiar with a little goes a long way ~ as a rule, a professional makeup artist can teach that habit and make it fabulous. The best part is I can teach your girls how to do it themselves. One of the best rewards I receive as a makeup artist, is seeing the natural confidence of a young lady. It certainly doesn’t take the same application of cosmetics or even the same products for that matter, as it does for a woman who has decades under her belt. There are lots of fun summer trends, along with classic tried and true that can easily be worked into a regular or special event routine.

Special events; proms, parties and wedding, are always fun for a first professional makeup appointment, you certainly don’t need a special occasion to take advantage of this fantastic service! Call ahead for your private session or ask about bringing in a group of girls as an occasion in itself! Don’t forget VIP Spa members always get extra perks! See you soon!

Summer Pale. Summer Tan.

It’s Memorial Day, and the beaches and clubs were all packed this weekend. I spent my Saturday afternoon with the Girls on Rooftop@Revere, Revere Hotel | Boston Common. Maybe you got a couple hours in the sun while at a picnic or maybe you’ve got the early stages of Summer Pale? What you do know is, you have a fantastic new dress that you can’t wait to wear. Dressy enough to wear anyplace, short enough to make it fun and it gives you a sultry look that you’re not entirely accustomed to.

FullSizeRender-2

The best accessory you can give yourself to go with it, is a Bronze Biologic spray tan. It always looks so luxurious when we have a luscious healthy golden tan. Tanning with the sun and UV lights can cause damage to the skin, accelerating the aging process and increases your risk of cancer.

Bronze Biologic spray tans are the absolute safest and easiest way to achieve that healthy golden tan that makes us want to bare our skin, not always covering up what defines us with a shawl. A tan gives every woman a little boost of confidence, making her feel a little sexier in the lighter fashions and warmer sunsets. Bronze Biologic is recommended by the American Academy of Dermatologists, The Skin Cancer Foundation and The American Medical Association. It is the only safe cosmeceutical non-toxic tan on the market. There it is, this is the safest way to tan, period. Make an appointment today before you’re tempted to not wear enough sun protection in your new swimsuit next week!

We always have amazing products and specials in the spa, be sure to check out our Tan Towels to keep up that golden glow at home.

Tan towels classic- $16.25 fair to medium skin (5 pack) or, $17.50 medium to dark skin (5 pack) Don’t forget VIP Members save an additional 5% on all products!

Introducing two NEW colors from BostonMints!

After months of blending, testing and perfecting, I am so excited to announce TWO new and brilliant lip glosses to the BostonMints family. Let’s welcome the summer months ahead with my newest hues ~ Back Bay Berry and Strong! I can’t even say their names without a smile creeping across my face. The colors are vibrant and shimmery and the names alone speak for themselves. The process of choosing names is never easy, I want to feel an emotional charge from the names I choose, not just choose random places or words. #FindYourColoriSpy

Back Bay Berry glides off the tongue as easily as it drapes your lips in the most decadent shimmering shade of berry gloss. Like fresh plums and raspberries blended together with the amazing benefits of coconut oil and the long lasting refreshment of spearmint. The sight of window boxes throughout Back Bay filled with flowers in the summer and berries in the winter, inspired the color for this sure favorite.
BostonMints Back Bay Berry
Strong. The word holds so much comfort and assurance to everybody, and everybody’s strength is unique. Strong could be first steps, survival, bravery or honesty. Oftentimes strong is simply putting a smile on your face when it’s not your first choice. This shade of red, with just the right amount of shimmer for day or night suits absolutely every skin tone. Blended with the highest quality coconut oil and my original blend of Aloe & Spearmint oils, a healthy addition to your collection. BostonMints is gluten free and safe for everybody of all ages. This new color is brilliant, classic and will have a stronghold in the front pocket of your purse.

BostonMints Strong

Strong and Back Bay Berry are both available in our introductory purse size in limited quantities. Get a handful. One for yourself and those who are strong in your life!
