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
  • Seltzer

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.

    It’s our last month of summertime and we couldn’t be more sad to see the season go (although we could all live without the mosquito bites). It’s the perfect time to embrace the spirit of summer with a dinner party filled with the refreshing flavor of seasonal foods. Our dinner parties may look a bit different this year, whether that means a socially distanced gathering in your backyard, a zoom party, or a simple family dinner, but the most important piece will remain: connecting with others over a meal.

    Sun Shower’s notes of meadow greens, lemon leaves, and jasmine tea sum up the best parts of summer, leaving you feeling rejuvenated and perfectly relaxed. Enjoy this dinner party meal inspired by our newest core collection scent.
