Sea Spritz
A daily dose of water & whimsy
The off season retreat

I discovered this bathroom in the May issue of Architectural Digest. I fell in love with the birds. They add a bright and lively element to an otherwise understated space. 

I recently moved and will definitely be on the search for little birds like these. I have an old Markham Roberts book that might lend some inspiration too (though I don't believe this Nantucket abode made it in).

Secrets of the Sea

This past June we partnered with Biotherm during their annual Water Lovers Day to bring awareness to the importance of protecting our oceans. They graciously thanked me with a number of samples. 

The ingredients in Biotherm products are sustainably sourced from the sea. I've been using the above for almost 6 months now and my skin glows. Their formulas were created through extensive research on mermaid selfcare rituals. Does this mean I will turn into a mermaid? I hope so...

Changing Tides

I love fall weekends in October when the crowds migrate north to see the foliage giving quaint yet crowded beach towns a moment to catch their breath. 

My next daytrip? Thatcher Island off of Rockport. Hopefully the seagulls will have finished nesting and the paths will be safe to walk without having to swirl sticks overhead. 

If only I were eligible to submit a photo to our Changing Tides Photo Contest running through Oct. 31st... 

 

Pura Vida in Costa Rica

The following is an interview with Michael Sekerak. We enviously followed his incredible trip to Costa Rica from a very cold and very snowy Sailormade studio. When you can't getaway yourself you can live vicariously through someone else. 

What to Pack for the Perfect Day at the Beach

It’s officially summer and you know what that means- beach day everyday! Okay, well, for most of us we really just mean those occasional weekends getaways we can sneak in when life calms down. No matter how busy you might be this summer, don’t forget to plan a beach day or two because everyone could use some fun in the sun and sand in between their toes.

Father's Day Gift Guide

Father's Day is only two weeks away. Chances are your Dad already has everything he needs - you - and what more could he want? Yes, sweet, but not so helpful when it comes to finding him a gift. This year, get him something that compliments his favorite summer hobby. 

Zac's Vieques Packing List

For the 3 night trip to Vieques I followed my custom of over-packing and completely misjudging what I would actually need ("2 linen suits for the weekend? Better make it 3 to be safe.") With that being said the weekend was amazing and my Sailormade gear was perfect reminder to put down the devices, pick up the frozen drink, and focus on getting irie.

Marblehead's Best Hangout

Nothing beats a hot cup of coffee and their freshly baked scones. Any flavor. The atmosphere. A little bit salty and definitely homey. You couldn't be anywhere but Massachusetts. B.Y.O.B... and don't even bother bringing your own bottle. They have a fantastic selection in the market.
