Only a real friend would give you bling! My designer water bottle collection is growing. And by designer, I really mean designer. For the past few years, Evian water has released a limited edition holiday bottle designed by fashion designers. From left to right above: Jean-Paul Gaultier, Paul Smith and Christian Lacroix. Have you seen them? The latest design (which I still need) is by Issey Miyake and you can see it here.
One year, I brought these special bottles along to holiday parties - it was much more fun to bring than wine. And at home, I use them for candles or flowers.
But until recently, I was missing the Paul Smith "swirly ribbon" bottle. Since it is limited edition, I thought I had missed my chance until my friend Corinne surprised me with it! Her husband found it in Chicago and brought it back for me - so nice! And as an added bonus, they got me a bottle of "bling" water too! Isn't it gorgeous? Those are real Swarovski crystals on the bottle and it puts a whole new twist on what it means to be a sparkling water. Ha!
I haven't opened it yet. Like champagne, I have been saving it for a special occasion. My birthday, perhaps? Thank you, Corinne! I love these bottles more than you can know.
