My RI Life: Summer Favs With Mom, Makeup Artist & Business Owner Jenny DiMucci

I am a mom of two young boys, co-owner of Twinkle & SMOOCH beauty & One Studio Smooch, and Regional Makeup Artist & Brand Ambassador for Laura Mercier Cosmetics...Summer is the best time of year for us. We love anything outdoors, and near or on the water. Being on a sailboat on the Rhode Island coast now equals pure bliss and relaxation for this busy family.


Starting out with the town of Bristol for their 4th of July Summer Concert Series...We love to take a blanket and watch the many concerts leading up to the 4th, including my husband - tenor, vocalist, and pianist - Michael DiMucci's at Independence Park on June 20th. We also enjoy the fireworks and attending the historic 4th of July parade. 

While in Bristol, we like to have dinner at Quito's, a tiny little place, known for its delicious seafood, and sometimes we'll sit and have a cocktail at Thames Waterside and watch the sailboats, always topping it all off with ice cream from Gray's. There are lots of cute shops to pop in to or meander about while eating your ice cream.

When we are able, our most favorite quick get away is a night's stay at the Point Pleasant Inn, which feels like you are in your own private Italian villa with gorgeous views, unbelievable service, and quaint quiet rooms.


Of course, we love the beach. Sand Hill Cove is the boys' favorite. Also, Narragansett Town Beach and Charlestown. We like to drive around and hit some little beachy type hot spots for a quick dinner or explore new beaches and places.


 The Topiary Garden is a fun place to visit with lots of great photo opps, as is The Botanical Garden (Photos above.) at the Roger Williams Park Zoo.

Our garden at home is another place we love to be, watching and tending to our crops and enjoying our harvest by creating great meals out on the back deck.


When we are not galavanting around town or in our digs in Cranston, we enjoy tons of fine eateries like Bistro 22Chapel Grille, and Basta.

One Studio Smooch

I can also be found working in the Studio alongside my husband Michael, where we host a variety of classes and events, including everything from Children's Art Classes, Summer Camp Sessions, and Birthday Parties to Adult Art Classes and Adult Pop Up Art & Wine Nights.

In addition, as a Fine Artist and a Professional Makeup Artist, I provide makeup application, and lessons, for private clients, by appointment only, for head shots as well as weddings and other special occasions. I also sell my own line of cosmetics and skin care [Twinkle & SMOOCH beauty]. Continuing to work in the industry as a Regional Artist for luxury brand Laura Mercier at Blue Mercury helps me keep my own business 'on trend'.
