Maria Sharapova Unleashes Her Inner Water Baby

In order to keep the momentum going from their roller baby video, Evian selected six individuals, including Maria Sharapova, to pose in T-shirts with baby bodies emblazoned on the front. To be honest, I’m a little creeped out by this image of the tennis star. She’s wearing a baby body as a T-shirt! How is that not weird? And who thought this was a good idea? While the shirt is totally odd, and surely not an item most people would ever wear, Evian’s motivation is something I can get behind. According to the H2O brand, youth is a mindset and lifestyle, so their Live Young campaign embraces the inner child in everyone. I’m a huge fan of water and the idea of staying young, but I just wish Evian took a second to realize no one wants to walk around with a huge picture of a baby’s body on their shirt.

Try This: Chilled Body Spray

This makes so much sense. It’s a wonder we didn’t think of it before. An easy way to keep cool this summer (especially if you don’t have air conditioning … we feel your pain), is to store a body or face spray in the fridge. That way, you can get an icy spritz that also combats the body odor you’ve inevitably worked up from the heat. You can do it with perfume as well, but it’s generally more refreshing with a light, almost watery, fragrance.

Our suggestion: Chantecaille pure rose water, a fancy, completely botanical blend that moisturizes and refreshes. [$50, Chantecaille, NeimanMarcus.com] [Editor: For a cheaper fix, we also swear by Evian’s mister, $15 at Sephora, which hydrates and whisks away perspiration, which is kind of crazy great.] Keep reading »

Even CGI Rollerblading Babies Love Evian

Evian wants to make you feel as good as a baby rollerblading to “Rapper’s Delight.” Umm, what? The French mineral water company recently posted an ad online featuring a bunch of CGI babies flipping and rollerblading around bottles. The company boasts that Evian’s “pure and mineral-balanced” water “supports your youth.” Sorry, but if there’s not some special youth hormone in that bottle, than it’s just regular H2O. Am I the only one who thinks this video is totally creepy? And who has The Sugarhill Gang stuck in my head? [Daily Mail]

French Abandoning Bottled Water

France, bottled water’s native land, have started to drink tap water more regularly. According to The Guardian, more than 67 percent of French people say they regularly drink tap water “l’eau du robinet,” compared with 59 percent five years ago, and spring sales of bottled water like Evian, Volvic, and Vittel are down 6.7 percent from last spring. This is great considering how much energy and plastic is used to make water bottles, but can you imagine the chicest of the French carrying around aluminum water bottles?

The Daily Squeeze: Sex Contracts, Drinking Water, And A Bitter Divorce

  • A member of parliament in Australia is proposing that men should carry around sex contracts in their pocket, “next to their condoms.” Women would sign the contract saying they agree to have sex, hopefully decreasing the number of false rape allegations. Not only would women have to sign the contract, but they would also have to write their marital status, whether they have kids, if they agree to being taken to another location to engage in sexual activity, and their driver’s license number. Can’t a girl get some privacy? [Thaindian News]
  • You know those people who carry around bottles of Evian? They’re idiots. New research shows that drinking eight glasses of water a day doesn’t clear out toxins, relieve headaches, benefit the skin, or help you lose weight by making you less hungry. [Reuters]
  • After a court ruled that Branko Zivkov, a Serbian farmer, had to split all of his property with his ex-wife, he used a grinding machine to cut his farm tools and machines in half. “I still haven’t decided how to split the cow,” he said. “She should just say what she wants — the part with the horns or the part with the tail.” [Reuters]
