It’s difficult to step outside your door without being bombarded by reminders that Sex and the City 2 is on its way to theaters this week. Chic can think of a million ways to celebrate, but no matter how you choose to fête the occasion, sip on one of these special Skyy Vodka cocktails, themed especially for the film. (Forget cosmos!)

Mr. Manhattan
2 oz. SKYY Infusions Cherry
0.5 oz. Wild Turkey 101 Bourbon
0.75 oz. Cola

Combine SKYY Infusions Cherry Vodka, Wild Turkey Bourbon and Cola in a cocktail shaker with ice and stir.  Pour into a double rocks glass and garnish with a maraschino cherry.

The overcast, drizzly weather may be gloomy, but at the very least it’s prime conditions for gardening. Chic may not have a green thumb, although we can appreciate the whimsy behind these Flower Grenades. All you need to do is throw and wait for the fleur to grow!  The process is rudimentary enough, and it's a perfect way to release tension. Remember: make gardens, not war. THE DETAILS: SUCK UK, $15 for a set of 3

Sailing With Giorgio

Giorgio Armani has always been quite the sporting type (he created the uniforms for Italy's 1994 World Cup soccer team, and those for Britain's Newcastle United team in 1999, among other things), but this time, he's set his sights on sailing. The designer announced this morning that EA7 Emporio Armani would be the official supplier of technical clothing for the sailing crew of the Azzurra sailing team, starting with the Louis Vuitton Trophy races off the Sardinian island of La Maddelena. "I am very pleased with this new collaboration that demonstrates our determination to unite the philosophy of EA7, the cutting edge brand in the field of technical sports clothing of the highest quality, with the experience and competitive spirit of the all-Italian Azzurra team," Armani said in a statement. Didn't make the team this year? (Don't worry, Chic's partial to spectatorship as well.) A special Azzurra-inspired EA7 capsule collection has been created, on sale at select Emporio Armani stores in June.

Here at Chic, we can only endure so much fashion before seeking solace in the sweet world of macarons. Today’s prize confection? These rainbow-colored delights by Theurel & Thomas, which is the first patisserie in Mexico that specializes in macaroons. It’s comforting to know that this Parisian craze is catching on just about everywhere, n'est-ce pas? Design agency Anagram masterminded the store’s interiors---now who wants to go to Mexico?

Seaton may be your go-to for sweet, Palm Beach-y tunics and sweaters, but we're loving the little wink on the back of this hot pink cardigan. The front may be your average V-neck cardi (though in a spuer-cheery hot pink), but on the back, the brand's trademark seahorses are getting a little cozy. Adorable! THE DETAILS: Seaton Kissing Seahorse cardigan, $335, seatonsurf.com
