♥ Everything's Better in France ♥

Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Hey peeps! I just had my birthday (on the 16th!) and boy am I in a happy mood! Okay, not as happy as I would have been having my birthday in Paris, France. Ha! I am a bit obsessed with all things French. It's been a life long goal or should I say resolution! *wink* to go to Paris.

I just adore everything there...the pretty pastries that look like little works of art, Ladurée macarons and delightful tea, the pretty Eiffel Tower where you just might be tempted to take an afternoon picnic and nibble to your hearts content on french breads, pastries, lemonade and delights. And if you can believe it...even the water is better in France! Yep, you heard me. I'll explain.

Since I couldn't go to France, I had a bit of France come to me! I received a special delivery a few weeks ago of that gorgeous pink and white Evian bottle you see above for this special collab with Brandbacker and Evian. I love the stuff! Basically, it's water in a special mist bottle. The water is of course...from France! Just another thing I can add to my list of things from France I adore. The water itself is from the French Alps! Here's what Evian says about how it's packaged.

"Evian ®Natural Mineral Water’s journey starts as rain and snow high atop the French Alps after which it filters for over 15 years through glacial rock and sand to a deep underground catchment just outside the town of Evian-Les-Bains, France. The water contained in the spray is tested 300 times per day to insure quality and the consistent unique mineral content—guaranteed to be the same year after year—canister to canister. No other water has the same mineral content. --- Evian Facial Spray contains a pure, soft, natural mineral water with a totally unique mineral balance, and a neutral 7.2pH. These properties are why the spray is extremely compatible with the human body. Evian Facial Spray is suited to all skin types, even the most sensitive."

Now, that's pretty cool, right? You're basically spritzing water that has come straight from the French Alps on your face. Ooh, la, la! right?! It's a really fine mist...feels like you're on a mini roller coaster and you just got misted with water on your face. Really refreshing & hydrating. Plus, it's dermatologically tested and hypo-allergenic which is always a good thing. *wink*

Just as a side note...before I got my hands on this lush little bottle of Evian French Water I had a bit of a beauty practice that I did any time I had to pull an nighter and believe me that can happen a lot when you have your own company. Sometimes I would start to look, how do I say it....tired, pooped...ready to plop into bed exhausted...so I would run some water, hot or cold, on my fingertips and apply to my eyes or splash my whole face sometimes. I swear I looked 100% better after that magical water made contact with my skin. Bright eyes and bushy tailed even! So now I have a nifty and very pretty mobile version I can take with me anywhere I need to refresh and it's from FRANCE and is much better for my skin than just regular tap water. I feel so fancy when I use it too. *dimple*

  1. I LOVE everything French as well, from macarons to the je-ne-sais-quoi Parisian style to the gorgeous landscapes/ambience of the Alps...I love love love your compilation of photos! I was thinking the other day how much I wanted to visit France again! I have always wanted to try this Evian spray-maybe it's a stereotype but I also feel like the French have impeccably perfect skin. One of these days I definitely want to buy it.
