the weather in antwerp hasn't exactly been summer worthy, but the universe has been sending me fun stuff to make up for it. discovering new kiehl's goodies is always a treat, especially when they smell like my dream herb garden. and then i found mrs lilien's cocktail swatchbook in the mail on the same day as a special delivery by hendrick's gin: the cutest little tin boxes containing the dried ingredients of my favorite gin. can you feel the cocktail post coming up? 'cause i can. at least i'll feel summery on the inside.
