Celebrating the last few weeks of summer with this refreshing and tropical cocktail. Inspired by this month's scent, Serene Surf, get ready for a kiwi and coconut flavorful cocktail. Brought to you by Mind-Over-Batter.

How to kiwi puree:

  • 2 Kiwis skin removed and quartered
  • 2 tablespoons Granulated sugar

For the kiwi lime smash

  • 2-3 tablespoons Kiwi puree
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Sweetened coconut cream like Coco Lopez
  • 1 small lime quartered
  • 1.5 ounces Coconut rum
  • 1/2 ounce Light rum
  • Ice

Instructions

Make the kiwi puree:

  • In a blender, quickly puree kiwi and sugar. Transfer to a small jar with a tight fitting lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to use. Puree makes enough for about 3 cocktails. Double or triple as needed.

Make the cocktail:

  • To a cocktail shaker (or a 12 ounce mason jar) add the kiwi puree, lime quarters, and coconut cream. Muddle with a muddler or back of a wooden spoon until the limes are fragrant and have released their juice. Add the coconut and light rums followed by the ice. Close and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds. Pour into an 8 ounce glass and top with seltzer.

Cheers!

No matter your prior health history, it is always important to regularly check the health of your breasts. Regular self-exams at home can help you detect any irregularities early on. This self-examination should in no way replace regular visits to your doctor but is a tool that can help spot early signs of breast cancer.   

How to Check for Signs of Breast Cancer at Home

Step 1: Get in a comfortable position

We recommend performing this exam standing in front of a mirror, while in the shower, or laying down. In order to feel for irregularities, your breasts must lay naturally, so do not have a bra or sports bra on.

Step 2: Without touching your breasts yet, look for any changes in the shape of your breasts.

Is one breast more swollen than another? Is there dimpling of the skin or any texture changes? Flex your upper chest area and look for differences between the left and right breast. Most women do not have symmetrical breasts, and one is often bigger than the other, but areas of puckering, dimpling, redness or rash should be checked by your healthcare provider. 

Step 3: Examine Using the Pads of Your Fingers. 

Using the fingers of your opposite hand (right hand for the left breast and left hand for right), softly move them around the breast tissue. Start from the area underneath your armpit and move steadily, in small circles, around the entire breast. Try to keep the pads of your fingers flat while doing so. Look for areas where there are lumps, thickening tissues, knots or other changes that feel foreign to you. It may be easier to do this while in the shower as your skin is more slippery. Be sure to lift up each arm and check underneath the armpit as well. Contact your healthcare provider if you notice any of the following:

  • Redness
  • Lumps/ knots
  • Thickening tissue
  • Dimpling
  • Puckering
  • Rashes
  • Soreness or Discomfort while performing the exam

Step 4 Check your nipples.

Notice if there is any discoloration, lumps, or discharge. Consult your healthcare provider if any of the above occurs or if your nipple has shifted position or becomes inverted.

A self-exam should not replace a visit to your physician. It is recommended for women to schedule an annual physical with their physicians.

Isle is our best-selling scent of all time for a reason. Inspired by the purity of water and the ease of a day spent near the ocean, Isle is clean, fresh, and renewing. This quintessential summer scent is a dewy and beachy scent that will leave you feeling refreshed during those sunny days. A your-skin-but-better scent that it's subtle but still leaves an impression. 
 

 
Fragrance Notes: 
Isle's most prominent notes are bergamot, cardamom, and sandalwood. This is where it gets the beachy and subtle citrus aroma.
 
Top Notes:  The top notes are your first impression and for Isle it's the
bergamot, orange mist, and fresh quince that make you feel refreshed. A subtle citrus aroma lingers making you feel uplifted.
Middle notes: After the first impression wears off, you meet the heart of the scent - a beachy slightly woodsy scent. This comes from a blend of cardamom, peony caress, and ginger root. The cardamon gives off a spicy and slightly sweet scent with a woodsy touch. When combined with the peony caress and ginger root, it gives it a fresh and slightly citrus scent. Creating the perfect beach scent.
 

Base notes: The base notes is what holds the scent together. For Isle is the sandalwood, subtle musk, and golden amber. Sandalwood gives it the woodsy scent that helps carry the middle notes together, while the subtle musk gives it an earthy subtle fragrance.
 

Best Pair with...

Magic Bloom + Isle= Experience a bright, totally mood-altering oasis when you layer Isle and Magic Bloom together. Magic Bloom smells like running free through a field of flowers, and the fresh aquatic notes of Isle smell like a seaside vacation.

 

Capri + Isle = The sheer, beachy base of Isle layered with the citrus pop of Neroli and grapefruit in Capri will make you feel like you’re on an Island Getaway (no matter where you are!). The bright citrus notes in Capri, bring fresh energy to our bestseller. We love this combination because it is complex, yet still very light. One of our favorites for an elevated everyday scent!

 

Isle + Salt Air= The perfect beach escape. Your-skin-but-better feel. These two scents give you a salty, dewy and breezy scent to keep you feeling refresh all day long. It's the sea salt and driftwood in Salt Air mixed with the bergamot and sandalwood of Isle, that will give you that subtle *oomph* you need to feel renewed.
