1. I still receive questions for top crossbody bags on a regular basis, and I wanted to share a new version I found which I think is great.
Many here will know that I’m a fan of the Longchamp Le Pliage line for work and play – it’s durable, stylish “enough”, and the price point isn’t too scary. I recently saw these “Neo” small crossbody bags in store, and I’m thinking that these are my new favorite pick for best travel bag. They’re just the right size, are super light, and plus – fold flat just like the original Le Pliage bags. I like the wider strap too – looks really comfortable.
Plus, I just love the cream color above – gorgeous and perfect for those scared of light colors (raising my hand) on more expensive bags.
2. I love, love, loved this interview with Liz Smith, via The Hollywood Reporter. What a super cool woman and I love that she just doesn’t seem to care about what she says or who she may offend – she’s just speaking the truth! I pray that I can be like her one day, and everyone can crowd around me when I’m 90 to hear out loud any and all evil thoughts I’ve silently accumulated over the years.
3. I enjoyed this article from Harpers Bazaar – Opting Out of Motherhood. Even though this isn’t a choice that I’ve personally made (obviously, as I’m pregnant and ginormous), I respect those who understand what it is they would like out of life and go after what they want. I believe the most fulfilling experiences in life are all different, for each of us!
4. My reading for this week? It’s actually a re-read – Going Clear, by Lawrence Wright.
Some of you may have heard of, or watched the Going Clear documentary on Scientology which debuted on HBO last week. I was so excited to watch it, but to be honest was a little disappointed. Not to say that the series itself wasn’t great or well done – it was – but there was so much more that was in the book, that I wish had made it onto TV. If you enjoyed the show, and/or are planning on watching it, I would also encourage you to pick up the book by Lawrence Wright. I’d call it more of a thorough companion piece than anything repetitive from the HBO documentary, and you’ll be fascinated. A worthwhile read.
