Would you like a deodorant that smells like millennial spirit? We have some good news and some bad news for you.
The good news: A San Francisco-based company called Native Deodorant, which makes its paraben- and aluminum-free products with simple, all-natural, non-toxic ingredients, has just introduced a trio of brunch-themed scents, packaged in a boxed set offering “mimosa, sangria, and of course rose!”

You know those “rules” about not wearing white pants after Labor Day and waiting 30 minutes after eating to swim? Yeah, we tend to avoid those rules. The same goes for rosé wine. Yes, it’s definitely more enjoyable to sip this pink wine in the summer, while sunning ourselves on a patio somewhere, but to be honest, we’ve been known to drink rosé on the couch in the winter every once in a while too. But now that summer it actually is summer (well, almost) and we’ll be finding ourselves on a lot more patios in the coming days, we’re moving into an all-rosé-all-the-time phases. Beyond popping the cork on a cool, crisp bottle and drinking rosé straight-up, we plan to celebrate tomorrow’s National Rosé Day holiday and all our summer sun sessions with these four pink eats and drinks.

When you think of 40-ouncers, you probably think of malt liquor: Colt 45 or Olde English 800, aka the kind of cheap, high-alcohol swill best drunk out of a brown paper bag.
You probably don’t think of an organically farmed, light, crisp Muscadet with “mineral aromatics” or a blushing rosé. Award-winning New York sommelier Patrick Cappiello wants to change that with his new endeavor: Forty Ounce Wines.
We all know rosé is a legit trend — with sales of premium imported rosé wines in the United States rising 41 percent on volume and 53 percent on value in 2014 alone, according to Nielsen research.
Also a trend for 2016? Drinking wine out of a can, which means this summer you can be doubly trendy — and drink rosé out of a can. Yep, canned rosé is a thing that exists.
