Poptastic!
Poppy Delevingne, London model and star of this summer’s “King Arthur: Legend of the Sword,” worked with Jo Malone to create two limited edition fragrances that can be worn alone or paired together: Sparkling Orange Blossom and Rich Tuberose Angelica. Poppy describes the combined scent as “floral, but also a little devilish,” according to Jo Malone’s website. The colognes are packaged in paint-splattered bottles designed by Poppy and come with a mini confetti cannon full of gold glitter. Available through Jo Malone’s website as well as Sephora.com.

Wouldn’t You Like to Know?
A good friend turned us on to LiketoKnowit, an app that lets you easily shop products featured in screenshots from Instagram, Pinterest or wherever you find influencers’ photos. Take a screenshot with your phone, then go to the app to find shopping links to the items in the photo. Or, if you connect your Instagram account, just “like” an image. It’s the digital equivalent to the question, “Where did you find that?” Several of our favorite local style bloggers use the app, including Sweet Southern Prep, Like the Yogurt, Charleston Shop Curator and Charleston Weekender. This could be trouble!

National Breastfeeding Month
If you are planning to breastfeed your baby, it can be really helpful to take a breastfeeding class or find a support group before your baby arrives, because breastfeeding doesn’t always happen quite as naturally as you might expect.

MUSC offers a breastfeeding class to all members of the community for $10. You can call 843-792-5300 to register for the next class or find more information at

www.muschealth.org/womens/services/lactation/breastfeeding-classes.html.

Le Leche League of Charleston is also a good place to find support. More information is available at lllcharlestonsc.blogspot.com.

If you decide to breastfeed your baby, you’ll likely need a breast pump. A pump can help you keep up the demand for milk, give you the freedom to travel, and is a necessity if you go back to work and want to continue to feed your baby breastmilk. Breast pumps are free through the Affordable Care Act. Call your insurance provider before you buy a breast pump to find out which pumps are covered and whether you need to buy your pump through a specific vendor.

Barre Where You Are Pop-Up Class
Raising the Barre is hosting a pop-up barre class at 9 a.m. Aug. 12 at Brittlebank Park. Meet to the right of the playground and then hop over to the dock for thighs and glutes. Class is $10. For more information, visit raisingthebarrecharleston.com/pop-ups.

Peace, Love and Hip Hop
There is no registration required for adult classes, so you can just pop in to check out these dance classes that you’ve heard so much about. Just bring $15 and be willing to let go and have fun. No need to be intimidated. Try Hip Hop 101 on Mondays and Wednesdays. Founder Angel Roberts promises that the classes will challenge the way you look at yourself. “You will sweat away the false beliefs that you are too conservative, too uncoordinated, too shy, too old, or too anything else to be a part of our hip-hop community,” she says on the website. How fun is that? For more information, visit www.peacelovehiphop.com.
