Welcome to Newport Living and Lifestyles. I’m Christon and we’re going to explore

the Newport International Boat Show.

We have created our own dry bag. It’s called Ugo. What makes this very unique is our zipper. It literally is a

a divers dry suit zipper, same one on the mustang survival gear. You see that it floats, but obviously it’s fully

submersible. The other thing that we love is you can actually use your phone right

through the bag, so you can talk ,you can text. It’s airtight so no sea or salt air. That is what I need!

Heinke Bohnert Sail art is sail cloth and a little bit of sand from each of the beaches that she travels to as well.

She’s a retired Olympic sailor and so now she tries to finance her family’s travels with some of these beautiful paintings.

How are you doing Courtney? So good to see you! How was is the show today?

Omy Gosh, People are from every where, all over the place.

They have great energy and asking all sorts of stuff about the island and Lila Delman is showcasing nicely!

How was your day?

Amazing, we are having so much fun!

I love it and love Newport Living and Lifestyles! Have fun and enjoy your day!

Docktails Lifestyle Apparel fun, but I am terrible at this game….

Tell us a little bit about Flat waves! We are a California Mexican style restaurant on Aquidneck Avenue.

What is this Hendricks Gin curator? So we configure cocktails using this machine

I love it.

So just pull it back….


The magic touch is that you can pull this lever and the liquid would trickle

down through the ice. Just pull it. Okay, ready? You see here? and it comes out…

Cheers! Thank you! Your welcome

Tell us a little about your jewelry, it is so unique. Well Thank you Thank you.

You are looking at Colby Davis of Boston

It is glass enamel over sterling silver.

Each pendant has a saying on the back. If you take a peek

They all have a little message. What does that one say?

This one says memories are made on Martha’s Vineyard.

If you look at our compass rose right next door. Turn that one over

On the back of that it says life brings us to unexpected places, love brings us home.

Each piece has it’s meaning behind it.

All made in Massachusetts by myself and my two daughters.
