This weekend I felt like a kid again. I got to trick or treat for the first time in almost 20 years! Now don't go trying to calculate my age, my young looks do to years of sunscreen use will deceive you. Ha! Will and I visited my sister, brother-in-law and three nieces for Halloween. It was the most fun Halloween I've had in a long time. [More]

by Will / October, 27 2014 01:30
Pumpkin carving might not have a lot to do with sun care but it's darn fun! However, seeing all those wonderful carved pumpkins and not having a clue how to do one myself has always been a frustration. The best I've ever done is a simple smiley face with a jagged tooth or two. So I set out to figure out how the pros do it. After reading, watching and listening to everything I could find, here are the eight consistent and best tips I found. [More]

Get Spooky - Rhode Island and Block Island Halloween Events

by Will / October, 22 2014 01:30
Halloween is one of my favorite times of year.  As a kid it was all about candy, candy, candy.  As an adult I can't say much has changed!  I still have a sweet tooth.  This year I'll be trick-or-treating with a few of my little nieces and I'm hoping they let me have a piece or two.  But what else is out there for Halloween? Well I did a little investigation for the Block Island / Rhode Island area and there's everything from hay rides to pumpkin picking to haunted houses. Tons of attractions. [More]

Fall Gardening Tips

by kelly / October, 8 2014 01:30
This week I got to talk to a very special lady, Holly. She's not only an expert gardener but the mother of our co-founder Will (and my mother in law). Holly keeps a tip top garden at her home in NY and has also built some beautiful gardens for a number of clients. She's always trying to teach Will about flowers but let's just say he's more interested in AstroTurf. Luckily I got to chat with her as I think gardening is a great way to get outdoors. Holly offered some quick and useful tips for gardening in the fall and year round that I thought would be great to share. Check out my conversation with her below. [More]

Sunny Travels: Palm Springs, California

by kelly / September, 24 2014 01:30
Our Block Island Organics sunny travel adventures continued over Labor Day weekend with a trip to Palm Springs, California. Yes we packed in two trips at the end of the summer. I'm thankful that we got to experience another great destination although it was hot! The average temperature in Palm Springs in the summer is around 110 degrees. The heat is no joke! That's because Palm Springs is located in the desert within the Coachella Valley (yes where the famous music festival takes place that bears that same name) about 100+ miles east of Los Angeles. But we were able to still enjoy our time in Palm Springs and work around the weather. With our sunscreen packed, and you needed lots of it, we headed to sunny Palm Springs! [More]

Outdoor Life: Football Season is Here!

by Will / September, 10 2014 01:30
Football season is one of my favorite times of year. Yes, I am a big football fan. The New York Giants are my favorite team and it's been that way for as long as I can remember. So when the games start my outdoor activities shift from summer beach themes to football Sundays. Here at Block Island Organics we believe in enjoying the outdoors. So if you are looking for active ways to enjoy football season (I admit, sometimes I sit and watch on tv too) here are some thoughts. Of course, wear sunscreen while your at it! [More]

Sunny Travels: Miami Beach, St. Martin and Anguilla

by kelly / September, 3 2014 01:30
It's officially the end of summer. I know, it makes me sad as well. Of course just because the summer is over, doesn't mean you should stop wearing sunscreen. Sunscreen should be worn year round. Sorry for the plug, but you know I had to. Anyway, I hope you all got in some sunny travels this summer. We sure did at Block Island Organics. This summer Will and I got to attend the wedding of my college friend. It was a destination wedding in St. Martin, an island in the Caribbean. The wedding was amazing and the location beautiful. I also go to spend quality time reminiscing and bonding with my college friends, something we haven't all done together in about 10 years. [More]
