Happy Saturday Everyone! I’m writing this morning’s post from a hotel bed in Philadelphia after what I can only describe as an eventful night! It started with eating french fries in my pyjamas in bed (as one does when living that hotel life) and was disrupted with a crazy loud alarm signalling that there was a fire in the building! So we were all evacuated and had to stand outside in the cold for nearly 3 hours, BUT thankfully everyone was alright and we were able to return back to our rooms eventually! I’m back today with another roundup of my favorite things on the internet from this week! Also, just wanted to apologise if you tried to visit my site over the week, we were experiencing quite a few technically difficulties that meant my blog was down for a couple of days. But thankfully after a lot of phone calls, googling and a near melt-down, we’re up and running again!

Morning all! It’s currently 6.30 on Saturday morning and I’m cursing my inability to sleep in! On the plus side I had a little time to whip up another Weekend Reading post! This weekend is certainly a busy one, starting last night with the launch of the Chanel Coco Club at The Wing here in New York! If you’re in the city this weekend then I highly recommend stopping by when it opens to the public tomorrow (its V. Instagrammable lol). Then later today I’m working for a couple of hours at the Ted conference which should be fun and meeting up with some friends for din dins tonight! I truly love this time of year because there’s so many fun things going on!

Hi Guys! I’m very excited to share something new on Life of a Lady Bear today! Every month I’m going to be sharing book recommendations of books that I read the previous month. If you follow me on snapchat (michaelabear1), you’ll know that I LOVE to share what book I’m reading at any given moment and nothing makes me happier than sharing the best reads that I come across. This months books kind of have a little bit of a thriller/mystery theme, so if you liked popular reads Gone Girl and Girl On The Train then I feel pretty confident you’ll enjoy the below.

Hi everyone! Excited to be back today with the second part of my new blog series, “The Classics” where each week I talk about one item that I either really love having in my wardrobe or one that’s on the top of my wish list! Today I’m going to talk about my go-to everyday handbag that I literally could not live without, the Longchamp Le Pliage Tote.
I was first introduced to this bag about 5 years ago during one of my Summers spent in New York with my friend Jen. She had one and swore that it was the best thing since sliced bread and convinced me that I needed one too, at that time I was interning during the day from 9-4 and waitressing every night from 5-1/2 and basically would be living out of this bag! So off I went to Bloomingdales to buy my first Nylon Le Pliage in a size large and I haven’t looked back since! No word of a lie, the bag has been in my hand ever since! I used it in my final year of college to carry my books and now I use it every single day going to work, without fail!
