Wanna Get Away? Glamping: Rose Island Style

ImageWhen you live in a place as beautiful as Newport, “staycations” are an easy sell. Appreciating the best the City by the Sea has to offer is a treasure, and one of the best places to feel far away—while still in the same zip code—is by staying at the Rose Island Lighthouse. I’ve pitched the “stay in a lighthouse” story idea to media for years, but never actually stayed there Imageuntil a year ago. Since then, it’s turned into a late summer tradition with a fabulous group of friends.

There are a few options—you can stay for a night, a weekend or a full week, the latter of which requires you be the official lighthouse keeper and perform related keeper chores, much like the keepers did a century ago. Alas, we’ve opted for single night stays, though if you saw the amount of coolers and provisions we collectively brought, you’d think we were moving in for the month. We didn’t exactly “rough it.” Veuve, bold reds, crisp whites, Dark n’ Stormies, steaks, sliders, summer salads, s’mores…it’s called “glamping,” if you haven’t heard the term, and it’s like camping, only with the creature comforts of home (like plumbing…and gourmet eats). By day, explore the 18-acre island, full of one-of-a-kind views. By night, fire up the grill, and bring some firewood for a bonfire. Take in the twinkling Newport skyline in the distance, the glow of Fort Adams and the slowly moving lights of boats passing by. Whether you stay in the lighthouse itself (restored to a 1912 appearance), in the Fog Horn building (the best digs on the island, in my opinion, perched upon the rocks next to the lighthouse) or in the newly restored Barracks building (huge), it’s sure to be an experience you won’t soon forget.

Hello, Lover! Rib & Rhein’s Newest Addition…

Rib and Rhein show lover

As local fashion fans know, Rib & Rhein opened in Newport in 2008, but this past summer, owners Erin and Thomas Ribeiro ceremoniously cut the ribbon to their new second floor for a combined 4000 sq. ft. of luxury retail space. Among other gems, the additions include the “Shoe Lovers Salon,” with each pair chosen specifically for the discerning Newport shopper.

Years ago, I wrote a story on Newport for Daily Candy describing the shop as a place where “Tribeca and St. Barths collide,” and it still rings true. Featured designers for men and women at Rib & Rhein include Marc Jacobs, Psycho Bunny, Etro, ISSA, Roberto Cavalli, Victoria Beckham, Turnbull & Asser, and more. The couple say they plan to add even more coveted lines including Prada, Isabel Marant, Marni, Givenchy, Tom Ford Beauty, YSL beauty, Gucci, Versace, Christopher Kane, The Row, St. Laurent, Alexander McQueen, Victor & Rolf, D Squared, Christian Louboutin, and Hermes. The boutique is located at 86 William Street in Newport.

In a Clutch

20130920-092619.jpg

How fabulous is this Moyna beaded clutch I spotted at Monelle on Bowen’s Wharf this week?!? The clutch with Navy blue beads that contrast with gold beads in Newport’s recognizable NPT motif actually fits a bit more than your standard night out MILK necessities (Money, ID, Lip gloss and Keys naturally … thanks ML!). Cost: $170

Monelle, directly across from the Clarke Cooke House, is the sister shop to Chace N’ Lulu, right around the corner. What they have in common: totally covet-able (and pricey) pieces, many with a nautical flair from likes including Lilly Pulitzer, Susana Monaco, Elizabeth McKay, Kate Spade, J Band, Cortland Park, Sail to Sable, etc. If you want your personal monogram beaded clutch, Moyna can custom make those as well. They typically range from $50 to $190 depending on the size. CLICK HERE to visit Moyna’s custom order site.

Best Tressed

ImageIf you’ve ever read the ingredients in your shampoos and conditioners, you may have found yourself turning to Google to find out what the heck that nine-syllable component is (and you can always check the Skin Deep Cosmetics Database). I’ve featured other organic or authentically natural hair care lines found locally here before, and I have a new discovery (it’s good to change up your brands from time to time). Meet Neuma, founded on the principals of beauty, health and sustainability.

I was first introduced to Neuma at JF3 Salon, whose owner, Joseph, seeks out emerging organic lines. With full ingredient disclosure (not hiding behind words like “fragrance”) and by partnering with suppliers who use renewable energy and support fair trade, Neuma is setting the bar high. I tried Neuma’s reNeu shampoo with neuMoisture conditioner—both are sulfate-free, color-extending formulas with UV Guard™ and don’t strip hair of its natural moisture and essential oils. You can mix and match from their Moisture, Volume, Styling, Renew and Repair specialties, and it’s totally vegan, so snaps for no animals being used in making this line. Plus, the infused essential oils makes it smell heavenly.

Like other better brands found at salons, Neuma costs significantly more than your drugstore brands, but you pay more for quality. Also, while it might cost more upfront, you really need just a dime size of the shampoo and conditioner for a good wash, so a little goes a long way.
