weekly buys 02

(Aritzia hat & Eat, Pray, Love novel by Elizabeth Gilbert)

I've wanted a hat for quite some time now. The obsession started after seeing the cute boater ones that Chanel presented on the runway. I found the perfect one in California with a not so perfect price. So upsetting. After searching high and low I've found one that fits my checklist for a good hat: 1)Price? 2)Color? 3)Material? 4)And most importantly, is it big enough to fit/sit perfectly on my massive head! The only problem is that it's from Aritzia, meaning that you'll probably see the same hat on numerous heads all around Canada. GR8 for the business, not great for me. I find that certain things start to lose their appeal once it becomes TOO mainstream. Anyway, imma keep wearing mine because I love it sooo!

When I went to go buy this book all I could find was the movie cover edition! I usually like buying the original book cover and this time was no exception. I always lose my place when reading and I don't like to dog-ear the pages so a bookmark is a must. Often time I don't see the point of an actual 'bookmark' so I just use random things such as cards, receipts, the fortune from my cookies, anything! In this case it's a Chill Winston business card. I love it there. So... dare I say, chill? xxx
