evian® Facial Spray’s Bon Voyage Sweepstakes (even includes the Can-Can)

Keeping my face fresh while on the go has gotten even easier. Evian now has a travel size spray bottle to help keep my makeup in tact, my skin moisturized and keeps my skin healthy.
(After a long day at Irvine Railroad Park my skin is still flawless)

(While at Tanaka Farms in the corn maze, out of breathe, but my skin is awesome)

(While watching my son ice skate for the 1st time at Irvine Spectrum Center, my skin is still amazing)
Every trip from a picnic to amusement park I have to have this Evian spray in my purse or backpack. It refreshes you on a hot day. I help sets my makeup. It keeps my skin hydrated. What more can you ask for? I have been seeing these bottles in stores like Urban Outfitter and Old Navy, I even saw them at Nigel's Beauty Emporium in North Hollywood which is a one stop professional movie makeup supply store. So I do and will always have this in my makeup kit on set and when out on a family fun day. Talk about never leaving home without it.

Learn About the Brand
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 was originally introduced in France in 1962 at the request of doctors for use on burn patients. It was the first facial water spray in France and was introduced as the first facial spray in the United States in 1978. Because of the current world-wide awareness of the Evian brand name, and the 37 year efforts of the USA exclusive distributor (The Wilkes Group Inc. in Old Lyme, CT), Evian is the only facial spray to be carried by many prestige retail groups including Nordstrom and Sephora. It is also offered in many luxury resorts and hotels such as Four Seasons.

The French Government has extremely stringent standards for approving mineral waters as suitable to drink. Evian Facial Spray is the only mineral water spray in the USA to contain such a water and the only one with a companion drinkable bottled mineral water. Worldwide, the Evian brand can be found now in over 120 countries.

The Wilkes Group was founded in 1976 and has distributed Evian Facial Spray since 1978. The company is focused primarily on prestige distribution at retail and luxury resorts/hotels that buy the product as a room, cabana, or poolside amenity.
The Wilkes Group is giving away a Longchamp "Le Pliage" backpack, in stylish, durable, water-resistant nylon topped with a textured leather handle and logo-embossed flap, which retails at $125. It is filled with one 10 oz., one 5 oz., and a trio of travel-size evian® sprays (over $175.00 total value)
Plus, three runners-up will receive a Longchamp pochette toiletries case, with embossed leather trim in durable, water-resistant nylon, accented with goldtone hardware, which retails at $50, and filled with a trio of travel size evian sprays (over $70.00 total value), the sweepstakes is hosted by The Wilkes Group Inc. and not evian®. Please use the hashtag #evianspray.

Remembering Breast Cancer Awareness Month (For my Mom Jackie)

Sending out my prayers to everyone that has been touched by the Fight in Breast Cancer. For me it was my mom Jackie and my aunt Josie. Both who are in remission.

Since it's October and Breast Cancer Awareness month I want to make sure you guys remember to get a mamogram and help in this fight.

I will be joining with the ladies of Sigma Gamma Rho on October 18th the help in our Breast Cancer Awareness contribution, details to come.

I found this cute charm bracelet to share in case anyone is interested in supporting the fight.

Vanity Fair Social Club @ Emmys weekend

I can't begin to tell you what an awesome time I had at the Vanity Fair Social Club Emmy Party. It was held at WeWork in Hollywood CA, cute location and they have parking, SCORE.

It was my first time learning about the Flowerbomb fragrance and I'm so in love. I went to Sephora right after the party to get me a bottle of my own. Just the right amount of floral and sweet.

Thanks to Brooks Brothers for their support in helping bring Tony Goldwyn to VFSC for a candid discussion with our own Emily Poenish. I was able to record this live to Periscope and then upload it to my youtube channel, see the video here with Tony Goldwyn, now in Scandal, a TV drama, as President Fitzgerald Thomas Grant III.
