Hi! I’m Kait and I am the author of The Archives of Cool. Beyond existing in the beautiful world of blogging and social media, I work as a freelance lifestyle writer in Calgary, Alberta. Thanks for popping by my little corner of the internet!

I love personalized shopping. Especially when you are shopping online. The less you have to search, the better in my books. MyMix just went live on eBay Canada on Tuesday July 2nd and I have been loving it ever since! A similar look to Pinterest – the Feed makes it easy to search for stuff you love in a super visual way. The lovely folks at eBay Canada sent over a $100 PayPal gift certificate for me (and one for a very lucky reader – see below) to try out the new Feed application on the site and pick out some great new goods just in time for summer vacations.


MyMix is a super sweet collection of summertime must-haves to keep me looking cute and having fun. I’ve been missing the days of Polaroids so I picked up a baby blue Fuji Instax Mini and a pack of Instax film to capture all of my summer adventures – from music festivals to road trips to a fun night out with my girlfriends – I can’t wait to use it. I also love shooting with my DLSR camera so I picked up an adorable new strap for it. I’ll be more inspired to pick it up and bring it out with me when it looks so cute with the polka dot strap.

I’ve been absolutely loving the new She & Him album, Volume 3. I only have the digital album but wanted to get a copy for the record player too – everything just sounds better on vinyl, right? Zooey Deschanel’s voice is just gorgeous – can’t wait to put it on for spontaneous dance parties in the living room!

Lastly, I had to pick up this J.Crew-inspired statement necklace. My favourite colour of flowers – I see myself wearing this well into fall with pretty dresses & tees. Completely adorable.

To help celebrate MyMix and inspire you to find those must-have summer items, whether you’re looking for the perfect summery white dress or cat eye sunglasses, eBay Canada would like to offer one of my readers a $100 PayPal Gift Certificate to use on eBay!

All you have to do is leave a comment here telling me why you love shopping on eBay. Make sure you leave your name and email address in the provided fields! For more chances to win you can tweet me at @yuppielove using the #MyMix hashtag and @ebaycanada. Contest ends on Monday, July 8. Open to Canadian readers only. Good luck!
