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.

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!

Penciling in our Wellbeing

Now is the perfect time to make a commitment to your health and beauty routines. It’s often too easy in a busy, full lifestyle to not put our well being first.

shutterstock_81718321Although we often take the leap and think, At least I am exercising, or eating well, the mindset shouldn’t be an excuse to not hold ourselves accountable for the rest of our precious bodies.

I know I feel best when I receive regular bodywork in a combination of deep tissue and gently guided relaxation. With my busy, sometimes frantic schedule, I need to book my appointments into my daily schedule months in advance. While this may seem a bit overwhelming I have taken the time to create Adamo Spa memberships to make accountability EASY! Taking care of our bodies, our facial skin, and glowing from the inside out really doesn’t have to be a chore or a hassle. And if you already enjoy monthly spa visits you’ll be saving money with more added perks for VIP clients!

Blue Lagoon Brow (1980)

Let’s flash back in time to the 1980 Summer blockbuster movie, The Blue Lagoon. The deserted island, lush palm trees and blue waves slapping at your pretty painted toes. Living in a beach community its hard not to imagine a love story like that happening around here. Maybe fewer palm trees…


I was thinking of Brooke Sheilds in particular when I started daydreaming about islands. She was and continues to be a beauty icon for women of all ages. Her full and groomed eyebrows in her early movies were fantastic and are a perfect example of what is trending today. Speaking of gorgeous eyebrows, think of Audrey Hepburn also. Another classic thick groomed brow. This look can be easily achieved by everybody with a little guidance and a few essential tools.

Studio Makeup at Adamo,  offers an eyebrow make over that will leave you feeling confident that you are putting your best face forward. Your eyebrows are the frames for your eyes and can easily change your appearance, sometimes not the way you like, if not groomed properly. I will teach you how to maintain your new shape at home so you can conserve your fresh look. I have new shapes and color palettes in the studio today. Everything you need to be your own favorite beauty icon. Call Studio Makeup at Adamo now to make your appointment. Tel. 781.383.3011 or email us at

You say Newbury. I say Newberry.

Newbury Street conjures up images of swanky restaurants, internationally renowned designers and the best independent boutiques in Boston. It certainly didn’t start out that way. Did you know that Newbury Street was originally under Boston Harbor? The Back Bay and the two mile stretch of twinkle tree lined sidewalks now known as Rodeo Drive of the East wasn’t completely filled in until 1882. With not so humble beginnings it started as an exclusive and prestigious place to reside, long before it became a shopping and tourist destination.

Find BostonMints in Finer Boutiques. Check us out at Reflections on Newbury Street, Boston MA

Reflection: something reflected, as an image. What image do you like to reflect in your gifts? In your home décor? In what you wear? Reflections enables you to reflect your own personal gifting and decorating style with unique brands and vintage items. Reflections ~ reflecting your passion for fine gifts and home decor.


Cool and sleek – Newberry Street lipgloss will travel with you to all of your favorite destinations. Although its not always jet setting, we still like to look chic and polished. I created the color to be layered with a lipstick or used alone as a sheer modern gloss. Play with the colors you already have, layering for depth and shine. Your lips will stay minty and full of color all day long. BostonMints is free of harmful chemicals and made with only the finest natural ingredients. BostonMints is also always a Gluten Free product so everybody can enjoy the beautiful benefits. Newberry Street comes in both full size and purse size. Order yours today!

Together we planted 864 Trees!

FORESTS FOR THE FUTURE

Every time you purchased Éminence retail products at Adamo Day Spa, a tree has been donated and planted in developing countries.

Together Adamo Day Spa and our Guests have partnered with Eminence Organic Skin Care to plant 864 trees to date. Thank you!

Our ongoing partnership with Éminence allows us to maintain our commitment to the award-winning global tree planting organization Trees for the Future, planting trees in 19 developing countries throughout the world including Burundi, Uganda, Ghana and Tanzania. In Africa, agroforestry provides families with the education and tools to create their own tree nurseries. The profits allow them to support their basic needs, while also benefitting the environment and fighting deforestation.

LET’S TALK ABOUT THE POWER OF A SINGLE TREE:

•  Produces approximately 260 pounds of oxygen per year
•  Absorbs as much carbon in a year as a car produces driving 26,000 miles
•  Helps lower air temperature and helps combat climate change
•  Stabilizes the soil and prevents wind and soil erosion through its roots
•  Contributes to the fertility of land through nitrogen fixation and increasing water penetration

Adamo Day Spa is so proud to be a part of this program that has contributed 3,000,000 + Trees to the Earth! Love, Joanne

THE WINDOWS TO OUR SOUL

Spring is here and it’s the perfect time of year to freshen your outlook. When we feel good about ourselves it shines through in a natural radiance that you cannot control. It’s been said our eyes are the windows to our souls, that may be very true. What we know is, eyebrows frame your eyes and they are the first feature people look at when they see you. Are your eyebrows sending the wrong message to people? A leading study proved the shape of your eyebrows can make you appear fatigued, angry, surprised or even sad. Those are not the emotions we want our friends or clients to be greeted with on a daily basis. If nothing else, improperly shaped brows have the potential to send some mixed messages. We certainly wouldn’t go without getting our hair cut and styled, why are we ignoring our brows? Call Adamo Day Spa today to book your appointment with the professionals at Joanne Ilacqua, Studio Makeup. Make sure you’re making the best impression you can this spring! Joanne and her team will customize and optimize the shape of your brows with the swift and minuscule movements of her tweezers. Almost like magic, a little wax and eye pencil you will look refreshed and younger. The professional makeup artists and estheticians of Joanne Ilacqua’s Studio Makeup at Adamo will teach you how to easily maintain your new look at home until your next visit. The smallest changes can make the biggest difference! Book your appointment today! Love, Joanne
