In partnership with Downy

Austin, TX is one of the fittest cities in the country and it pushes me to live a healthy lifestyle. Lately, I’ve been biking around town to run errands and absolutely love it! Although it’s a great way to stay healthy, it can also be one of the stinkiest. Whether it’s going from store to store or meeting up with friends after, you definitely don’t want to feel self-conscious about smelling.

That’s why I’m excited to team up with Downy and share my top tips for biking around ATX, and how to stay smelling and looking great from the bike to the bar. I introduced y’all to Downy Fresh Protect beads at the start of the New Year—and now, I’m putting them to the test as I run errands around town (Spoiler alert: they passed with flying colors!).

Watch the full video below to get a sneak peek into a few of my favorite spots to hang out at in the city—and Downy helped make sure I didn’t feel self-conscious about meeting up with my friends later that evening after the long day biking around Austin!

Tip 1: Pick a Comfortable Outfit

When biking, the last thing you need to worry about is discomfort. That’s why my go-to outfit is anything I can layer (you never know where your day may take y’all!) and a good pair of sneakers!

Tip 2: Wash with Downy Fresh Protect In-Wash Odor Shield Beads

I always pick my outfit the night before, so that I save enough time to pack my bag in the morning. I’ll toss my clothes in the wash, sprinkling a capful of Downy Fresh Protect beads directly into the laundry machine. There’s no need to wait for the rinse cycle—pop them in at the same time as your detergent. And they’re motion-activated, so the more you move, the better they work! Personally, I find the beads are super easy to use and a necessary step in keeping my clothes looking and smelling their best all day—it’s like deodorant for your clothes!

Tip 3: Pack the Essentials!

It’s extremely important to pack light weight, but necessary, items in your bag. You don’t want to leave your place and realize halfway through you forgot something!

My Essentials: Water Bottle, Sunglasses, Headphones, Phone Charger, Sunscreen, Small Towel, Lip Balm, a layerable jacket, and of course, my phone!
