Male model Jordan Barrett cuts a casual figure in cargo shorts and a pair of SLIPPERS while out in Los Angeles

He may be one of Australia’s top model exports, but Jordan Barrett proved that he’s just like the rest of us on Friday.  

The 23-year-old cut a VERY casual figure in cargo shorts and a T-shirt as he stepped out in Los Angeles, and even chucked on a pair of slippers for the outing.  

Jordan was spotted stepping out of his luxury SUV in downtown LA, where he’s been based while in lockdown amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Jordon – who hails from Byron Bay – appeared relaxed on the outing. 

He accessorised his look with a chunky gold ring and a belt. 

Previously described by Vogue as the ‘Model It Boy of the new Era’, Jordan has featured in numerous high-end campaigns for celebrated fashion houses including Balmain, Versace, Moschino, Tom Ford and Coach. 

He is currently living in Los Angeles, which has maintained coronavirus-related lockdown measures.

The model was recently forced to hit back at claims he has an online sex tape with New York socialite Caroline Vreeland.

Jordan was targeted by a troll last month on social media, accusing him of recording an X-rated video with the 32-year-old.

‘Caroline Vreeland your sex tape with Jordan is on Reddit. You’re so hot together,’ the troll wrote, providing no evidence of the tape’s existence.

Jordan was happy to call out the social media user in a cheeky public response, which could be seen by his one million followers. 

‘Send me the link,’ he countered, clearly calling his bluff. The response was to a comment by Caroline calling Jordan an ‘angel’ under an Instagram post.

Jordan and Caroline were first linked in September of last year, when he was spotted passionately kissing the beauty on a steamy date.

Banana Republic Donates $20M of Clothes to Americans in Need

Published

Over the past few months, we’ve spotlighted fashion businesses stepping up and taking action, whether it’s to help support Americans affected by the COVID-19 crisis or to stand behind the Black community with donations, acknowledging the racially unjust murder of George Floyd and the larger conversation surrounding Black Lives Matter. Brands with a large platform can and should acknowledge voices that are struggling in America, and Banana Republic — notably a part of parent company Gap Inc. — is striving to make a difference. BR teamed up with Delivering Good to donate more than $20 million of new clothing to those in need in order to help America get back to work. It’s a project they’re calling “Will Work For a Better Republic,” and it comes after months of actionable Instagram posts the brand has put up, all of which are meant to encourage positive thinking.

“By supporting Delivering Good [an organization that helps kids and families through tragedies], Banana Republic is helping men and women across the US, including those facing poverty, homelessness, and job loss. Among our network of more than 700 community partners, we will focus this donation on nonprofits with workforce training and re-entry programs and markets that have been especially affected by the current crises. This donation will have such a positive impact on men, women and disadvantaged young adults,” said Delivering Good President and CEO Lisa Gurwitch.

In effort to promote equality, Banana Republic has also come together with Gap Inc. brands Athleta, Gap, and Old Navy to donate $250,000 to the National Association For the Advancement of Colored People and EmbraceRace. Previously, Gap Inc. donated $1M to support underserved families in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, posting the news on Instagram on March 27. Banana Republic also came out with a reusable cotton face mask for customers to purchase, committing to a donation of $10 to Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund for every mask sold.

Amazon Kimono Cardigan Lets You Layer While Staying Cool

While we couldn’t wait to finally put our snow boots and heavy down coats away, we have to admit that summer fashion — no matter how fun it can be — sometimes feels like it’s missing something. Layers! The thing about layers is they are not solely about keeping you warm. They can really add some serious style to an ensemble as well!

In summer, though, we’re often just wearing a tank top and shorts — and that’s it. Anything else on top would leave us sweaty, uncomfortable and unhappy. It might look cute for about two minutes after we put it on, but the heat often shows no mercy. That’s why we need to be smart with our layering and keep things breezy, lightweight and breathable with a piece like this kimono-style cardigan!

You may have never thought of a cardigan as a go-to piece for hot summer days, but this one is definitely going to change your mind. In fact, you might even have to stop yourself from wearing it every single day — not that we think anyone would blame you!

Try layering it over a simple tank top and denim shorts, or even a cami with biker shorts and sneakers. It’s also very popular with reviewers as a cover-up for the beach and pool. Even more versatility is added when you throw a belt around your waist, should your outfit call for it. You don’t need Us to style you though. We already know this piece is going to look fabulous with just about anything hanging in your closet!

Turns out, stress and sense of smell are directly related

Published

on

By

There’s a reason why the wellness market is chock-full of lavender pillow sprays to help you fall asleep, and why so many of us keep bottles of peppermint essential oils on our desks to stay productive at work. The scent-brain connection is real, and legitimate research has shown that sniffing certain fragrances can have a major impact on your mood. But if your go-to calming scent concoction has suddenly stopped working, your stress levels could be to blame.

“Our sense of smell is intricately linked to our olfactory center of our brain—in fact our sense of smell is only one synaptic jump from our emotional brain which controls our stress response,” says Amy Galper, co-founder of the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies. To get super science-y for a second, your sense of smell (or “olfactory neuroanatomy”) is intertwined with the parts of your brain that control your emotions, including  the amygdala, hippocampus, and orbitofrontal cortex. When you sniff something, it has to get through all of these areas before it gets to the part of your brain that’s able to process the scent, which is why we often have such strong associations between fragrance and emotions. (Can you smell Axe Body Spray without thinking of your high school boyfriend? Because I cannot.)

“Because of this, aromas can trigger emotional and subsequent physiological responses to external stress and visa versa,” says Galper. “So if we are extremely stressed it can affect how our olfactory nerve cells respond to aromas.” says Galper.  In other words, your stress levels can change the way you process certain scents. So if you’ve gone from loving the scent of patchouli to suddenly wanting to throw every patchouli-scented candle in the garbage, your anxiety is a likely culprit.

A 2013 study put this theory to the test, and scientists showed people stress-inducing text and images (think: car crashes and wars) to see if it would change their sense of smell. “After anxiety induction, neutral smells become clearly negative,” Wen Li, one of the researchers behind the study, told Science Daily. “People experiencing an increase in anxiety show a decrease in the perceived pleasantness of odors. It becomes more negative as anxiety increases.” And why is that? According to researchers, in a “normal” (aka low-stress) smelling situation, it’s just the olfactory system that gets switched on, but when you start to get anxious, the emotional system also kicks into gear and becomes part of the processing stream.

While certain scents are considered to be universally calming, there’s no “one size fits all” essential oil for keeping you calm—particularly in times of high anxiety. Essential oils like rosemary, chamomile, lavender, pine, clary sage, or  marjoram have been shown to lower nervous energy and trigger a resting response in your body, so if your usual calm-down candle has stopped working, try introducing one of these into your routine. Just be warned: it may stop working the next time you flick on the news.
