EAT SHOP LOVE ! (Review)
18 July 2010
Yesterday I was browsing through Harper's Bazaar August 2010 Issue with the fierce Cameron Diaz on the cover and I stumbled upon a great article entitled, EAT SHOP LOVE. Julia Roberts stars in the book turned movie "Eat, Pray, Love" (author: Elizabeth Gilbert) which hits theatres August 13th (I'm def catching that one) and it's about a woman who comes to a point in her life where she needs to find herself with a little soul searching and traveling.
The article is basically about taking what's within reach and indulging yourself with what surrounds you instead of the need to wisk yourself away to a far away land to get in touch with yourself. What you need is to make a few changes in your life to really see a difference. No need for anything really profound, just something that'll make you happy for now (maybe shallow even).

"Instead of going deep, why not go shallow? Instead of the high-minded, why not allow yourself to experience the transformative joys of the profoundly superficial?" - 'Eat Shop Love'


I do agree with this new mantra. Everyone needs to be indulged and spoiled every once in a while (especially those working women and moms out there). Eating great food, buying amazing clothes, and loving to your heart's fullest capacity will make anyone want to do a few somersaults in the middle of the street. Shopping for me just makes me happy, point blank. I'm not trying to fill a void or anything but after I just dropped a hundred or so at the mall and got some really great pieces to add to my wardrobe, I don't know about you but I feel AMAZING afterward. I never feel guilty after a shopping spree because I make good choices about price points for myself so when I find that top that I just gotta have and it happened to be on sale, I'm instantly proud of myself for even finding it like"Where have you been all my life!"

So the moral of this story is , go ahead and treat yourself! Try being indulgent and do what makes YOU happy for once. Just don't go crazy! (Bonquiqui voice)
