California Girls

Spring is here and the sun is shining. Here in Southern California, we are ready to play! evian® Facial Spray has gifted us some goodies to keep us cool and refreshed on our spring and summer adventures. When people think of the LA area they think of traffic, smog, and celebrities. While we have to put up with all that, we have a few perks too; the weather, and beaches for starters. There are endless possibilities for fun here in Southern Cali. Here are 7 of our favorite places to spend the day, and what us California girls take with us when we go.

While evian® Facial Spray has sponsored this post, all opinions and words are my own.


DISNEYLAND It’s called the happiest place on Earth, and it meets expectation.

AQUARIUM OF THE PACIFIC Cora loves petting the sharks and jellyfish. They also have a splash pad.

NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM Check out their butterfly pavilion!

SANTA MONICA PIER Shopping, Beach, Restaurants, and a Ferris Wheel. Something for everyone.

BOTANICAL GARDENS A spectacular display of blooms.

LOS ANGELES ZOO Lions, and Tigers, and Bears, oh my!

KID’S SPACE CHILDREN’S MUSEUM Great place for hands-on exploration and multiple water play areas.


With our calendar abuzz with all kinds of activities, we’ve packed our bag with all the essentials. Here’s what we take along for every outing:

  • Stylish bag
  • Extra clothes
  • First aid kit
  • Sunscreen
  • Water bottle
  • Snacks
  • Evian spray

Every mom needs a Marry Poppins bag. The kind you can pull a floor lamp out of. Keep a change of clothes in case they get wet. Many of our parks have fountains and splash pads now, and if your littles are anything like mine, they will sniff out the ONE puddle and roll in it. My girlies have a tendency to get a little overexcited when we’re on an adventure and fall and scrape their knees, so we need a first aid kit to patch them right up. You can use the evian® Facial Spray gentle mist to rinse any scrap or cut. You should never leave the house without sunscreen and some drinking water, obvi! Snacks are another good thing to keep on hand. Hangry kiddos make life miserable.


The evian® Facial Spray is by far my favorite new addition to our bag, you can thank me later. This is the best multipurpose beauty product on-the-go for us mamas. As a beauty product, you can mist it on top of your makeup in the morning to help it set, and give yourself a little mist of energy. Use it later when you’re melting down to refresh and hydrate your skin and senses. If your little one has cookie all over their face or ice cream running down their hands, a generous mist of the evian® Facial Spray wiped with a napkin, they are back to running amok!
