Yesterday was the first day in a long time that actually felt like summer. It feels like it has been raining endlessly in the city for the past week. To get me through the cloudy days I have been toting around this tiny Malin + Goetz mojito lip balm in my purse. It's clear and extremely glossy (without being sticky or heavy), and it has a refreshing hint of lime and mint. I picked it up at the Malin + Goetz store, which is one of the best stores to visit in Chelsea. All of their products coming in this amazing minimalist packaging (my personal favorite is the Detox Face Mask), the candles smell incredible, and you get to pat the owner's little English Bulldog .
P.S. For a really refreshing mojito-inspired drink, put a lime Froz-Fruit popsicle and fresh mint leaves in the blender (rum is optional).
