This weekend, I asked for water at an after-hours, speakeasy. I was a little disappointed when they gave me a bottle (As I really just wanted tap water after a long night out. We were still sipping on red wine, so I didn’t need a whole bottle!). But, I was excited to see a bottle I had never seen before. It was in the awesome blue flask–with a she-devil on the label. The water was delicious. Seriously—it was crisp and refreshing. It tasted a lot like Smart Water, actually. I liked the bottle and water so much, that I took an extra water to go. I’m not sure how much the speakeasy charged for the flask of water, as some of the other customers insisted on buying me and my friend drinks.
“Yes, the revolution has begun–and you can help! Liquid Salvation is distributed in CA, NV, TX, AZ, OR, WA, CO, OK and as an Ambassador of the Salvation Nation, please encourage your local retailers/distributors to Ask for the Flask–or else you’ll start a F*&!# riot! (“please” also works, too)”
After a little more research, I found out that LS is bottled in Lake Tahoe, NV, and at one time, you could buy LS on Amazon. I mean, you had to buy a pack of 24—but what a great idea for a party? Hopefully Amazon will restock the product soon. Otherwise, you might just have to find the secret speak-easy and “ask for the flask”.

Last time I was in Paris, I found myself at Colette-a boutique full of art, music,beauty, culture, entertainment, fashion and food. There’s even a bottled water bar (with water from all over the world).
The store is upscale, but edgy. Famous graffiti images appear on well made shirts and shoes. Next to these items are dresses by Lanvin and Yves St. Laurent. It’s like Maxfield in Los Angeles but 1,000 times cooler. There’s an art gallery in the store, as well.
Colette carries clothing for both men and women. I found a video on youtube that explains the concept of Colette and shows a lot more of the store. These photos don’t really do it justice. See the video below.
Not going to France anytime soon? Shop online or just “window shop” for inspiration.
