Move Over Vanilla: You Can Now Literally Smell Like Mimosas

Nothing gets you out of bed quite like Sunday brunch. I’m pretty sure that was the logic behind the latest trend – turning brunch into a fragrance. I know – there’s a line of brunch scented deodorants that launched this summer.  But it just might be the best smelling deodorant.

We’re not talking about avocado toast scents; we’re talking the best part of breakfast, and that is brunch cocktails. Yes, I thought smelling like alcohol was a bad thing, but now it seems that people are lining up and trading lavender or cucumber scents for mimosa antiperspirant.

And because it’s trendy yet could be categorized as hipster, this new brunch scented line of deodorant from Native, is also all natural and aluminum-free.

Using essential oils, Native creates what might be the best smelling deodorant – boozy scents which include the ever so popular, Rosé,  along with the standard Mimosa, and more of a later brunch crowd favorite, Sangria.

So, now whether you can afford a $50 brunch at SoHo House or the cinnamon rolls at Ann Sather’s, you can always make it smell like your favorite part of the week. With a slogan like “Invest in Yourself” maybe it’s better to do that than invest in another cocktail when you’re still working on your summer body goals. 

Bottoms up, or should I say arms?




Life Hack: Breakfast You Can Make In 5 Minutes For Work

I pick up most of my life skills from television shows, namely Gilmore Girls. So, I always carry a book with me, and I drink coffee in the morning because it makes me feel important like Lorelai Gilmore.

If being an adult is drinking Peet’s or Starbucks coffee every morning, then I am a master at being an adult. But after the sugar was too high and my bank account was too low, I decided to grow up further and actually add nutrition—not just caffeine to my morning ritual.

You can stop the image in your mind of fresh-pressed orange juice and The New York Times.

Despite the great reviews of turning yourself into a morning person, it has yet to be a habit of mine. Even if I wake up an hour early, I still struggle to get everything done that I am supposed to do. I think it’s reverse psychology. You think you have so much time, and then you wasted it on your hair and dancing to Rihanna’s new song.

So, to help a friend out, I have five ideas for an easy breakfast that is healthy, quick to make, and most importantly, portable.

And no, I didn’t just put avocado toast on the list. Though it is on the list because it really is that good and filling.

All of the foods can be prepared in less than five minutes either the night before or in the morning in between straightening your hair.
