Steph Says ~ Enjoying the Dog Days of Summer

The dog days of summer have arrived, and I am committed to enjoying e-v-e-r-y last minute of it!

This is my dog Driftwood. He is the JAVA Mascot. He even has his own Insta Page – he loves to get follows @driftwoodyyyyyy. He is a Saint Bern-doodle, a combo of a Saint Bernard and a standard Poodle. I must admit, he is the coolest dog because doesn’t shed, doesn’t drool and has the temperament of a Saint. He is pretty big at 85 pounds, but as gentle as can be. He loves to swim and take baths.

Paddle Boarding Anyone?

Paddle Boarding

My new obsession is paddle boarding. At the end of my street is a saltwater river that is perfect to paddle board on. We even do Full Moon Paddles. The next Full Moon is August 15th. These evening events are amazing. If you are into paddle-boarding, I highly recommend a this lunar experience. Friends have offered to teach me paddle board yoga, but I struggle with yoga on land…lol…so I’ll pass on that for now, anyway. Here is my recommended Kayak Rental Shop in Narragansett RI: Narrow River Kayaks

The Leo New Moon is Here

Speaking of the moon, we have a New Moon In Leo July 31st. This is going to be a game changer that will take us into August. During this new lunar cycle we’ll all feel profoundly confident putting our dreams and desires in the forefront of our minds and missions. Read more…

Steph Says- Beat the Heat

July is awesome in Rhode Island. The weather, the beach and all the events we have keep our days filled with fun. Some on my favorites are: 

The Bristol Parade 

The Annual Bristol 4th of July Celebration began in 1785 when  Rev. Henry Wight of the  First Congregational Church and a Veteran of the Revolutionary War conducted the first Patriotic Exercises. 

We pack our chairs, make a picnic and enjoy the day. 

Fireworks 
We will be at the beach for the Fireworks on July 4th.  Such a fun family day… 

Clam cakes and Chowder 
Monahans Dock, Narragansett RI 

Hands down our favorite place to get the perfect lunch… and the view is spectacular. 

How are you spending July? I would love to here about your favorite things to do. 

During all this fun… please remember to care for your skin. Stayed covered and wear SPF.

Steph Says: It’s June – Let Summer Fun Begin!!

We are fortunate to live in and work from Narragansett, RI… our beaches have won numerous awards for their beauty. It is a special place that I invite you all to visit.

Travel + Leisure has named Narragansett Beach one of the The Best Beaches in the U.S. for Celebrating July 4th

As I look forward to summer, some of my favorite things are:

Lobster Rolls – we go down to the docks of Point Judith, RI and buy lobsters right off the boats.

We also have amazing places to sit and enjoy the views with a glass of wine. My favorite place is the Coast Guard House… Stunning!

As you may know, I love to garden, and my Peonies are beginning to bloom. I always struggle with wanting to cut them for a table center piece but coming up the walkway to the front door and seeing them each day is such a wonderful experience. I tend to leave them alone; maybe I need to plant more of them so I can enjoy them both ways… note to self: plant more peonies.

This time of year, my skin needs some extra help.  The winter has been cold, the spring has been wet, so I use our JAVA Trio to show off my skin in all my fun summer clothes.

Directions

Here is the at-home version of the Skin Smoothing Spa Protocol used in 5-star spas across the country:

Before showering, apply JAVA Body Scrub to dry skin in a circular motion, towards the heart, with even pressure to any “affected” areas (any dimply or less than firm spot on your body, legs, bottom, tummy, upper arms, scars and stretch marks). Scrub gently for three to five minutes. The circular massage will redistribute fat evenly, decrease fluid retention and increase circulation. 

Next, wrap the area with a towel, and let the mixture soak in for fifteen minutes. While you wait, relax; flip through your favorite magazine while the antioxidants and caffeine absorb deep into your skin to detoxify and strengthen.

Shower off to rinse your skin. Partially pat dry – you want your skin to be slightly damp.

Now, massage JAVA Serum into affected areas (and while you’re at it, go ahead and smooth that serum all over your body). Not only will the serum deliver antioxidants and caffeine deep into your skin’s upper layer, it will create a moisture barrier to continue to keep your skin soft and supple all day.

Use the scrub and wrap protocol three days a week until desired effect is achieved. After that, continue scrubbing once a week and use the wrap protocol as needed.

On days that you’re not using the scrub, use Wonderbar Coffee Natural Exfoliating Soap in the shower in a circular massage on effected areas to maintain the fat distribution and deliver caffeine and antioxidants to your skin.

As always, finish your shower with JAVA Serum.

We recommend you use this as a part of your body-bettering routine. Use in conjunction with regular exercise and a healthy diet for best results.

This is not a weight or fat loss product or program. Results may vary.

Happy Summer,

Stephanie
