Happy Tuesday Everyone! I’m currently spending a little time with my family in Cape Cod and I’m so very thankful that they’re here, especially because today is my birthday!

Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend, mine was jam packed with a trip to Brooklyn to visit Smorgasburg (a wonderful outdoor food market) as well as a little bit of shopping in preparation for my mini getaway to Cape Cod next week!

Happy Monday Everyone! If you follow me on Instagram or Snapchat (Michaelabear1) you might have seen that I spent last week in San Francisco. I was there with work for a very special young women in tech summit at Google headquarters. Honestly getting to spend a couple of days at Google was so much fun, their offices were literally so cool from the all you can eat cafeteria to the nap pods to the swimming pools! I even had the pleasure of meeting the CEO of Google, Sundar Pichai which was a surreal moment.  The days were pretty jam packed working but we did manage to pack in a couple of fun activities and I wanted to share a couple of my recommendations with you guys along with a couple of snaps from my trip!
