      The clouds have cleared and the sun is finally shining! We’ve all been waiting for this moment, and now that it’s finally here, are you ready to hit the beach and enjoy this long-awaited warm weather? You may have your trusty swim suit and towel at hand but the question remains: Are you doing the most with your beach wardrobe?
      The design team at Joseph Nogucci wants to guide you toward looking as fabulous as humanly possible while you hit the surf with these helpful style grids and suggestions:

Beach Set 1- the “Out-All-Day” light and flowy look:

This outfit set is designed to be cool and versatile all day long. Light blues and an accent of canary yellow make this outfit as bright and cheery as it gets!


Beach Set 2- the “Sultry Beach Goddess” look:

Just because it’s sunny outside, doesn’t mean your outfit has to reflect that. If you’re into a more classic look, this outfit set might be perfect for you.

Beach Set 3 - the “Boho Beach Babe” look:

Ready to translate that carefully-cultivated Bohemian style to the beach? Look no further!

Beach Set 4 - the “Spring Revival” floral look:

Love the floral motif of spring and the warm weather of summer? This outfit is the perfect way to marry the two!

      Okay, now that you’re the most stylish person on the beach or by the poolside, let’s make sure that your makeup, hair and skin don’t suffer from the heat and moisture with these staff-picked beauty favorites:

  • Clinique Sun SPF 45 Targeted Protection Stick

Happy Silence Day

Silence Day is the name the follower of Indian spirituality master Meher Baba gave to his practice of commemorating July 10th of each year. By maintaining verbal silence for twenty-four hours, he hoped he and fellow followers would be able to inwardly reflect in ways they could not verbally. We know it’s hard to stay silent all day, so to commemorate Silence Day, we at Joseph Nogucci would like to offer some tips for meditation to help your practice of self reflection.

1) Start with the breath. Breathing deep slows the heart rate, relaxes the muscles, focuses the mind and is an ideal way to begin practice.

2) Stretch first. Stretching loosens the muscles and tendons allowing you to sit (or lie) more comfortably. Additionally, stretching brings added attention to the body.

3) Try using a candle. Meditating with your eyes closed can be challenging and cause your thoughts to wander. Lighting a candle and using it as your point of focus allows you to strengthen your attention with a visual cue.

4) Don’t stress. This may be the most important tip, no matter what happens during your meditation practice, don’t stress about it. This includes being nervous before meditating and angry afterwards. Meditation is what it is, and just do the best you can at the time.

We hope you take some time today to focus on your thoughts and reflect upon yourself and your actions. Have a wonderful Silence Day!
