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!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
