This post almost didn’t get written… again. I am fighting sleep before 10:30 on a Thursday finishing this up. I wish I had more to say, but here are the best links from this week.
Wanderlust has hit me hard this week. Freaking out over these Iceland photos. That trip needs to happen sooner than later.
To further fuel my wanderlust, here are places you should travel to in 2015. Kayaking the Croatian coast, anyone?
Europe hotels can often be huge rip-offs… a 2 star hotel for the price of a 4 star hotel in the US. Here are 7 cities in Europe where you can stay in luxury hotels for less.
Here are things we should stop talking about in 2015, aka how not to be basic. Funnily enough, in SoulCycle on Monday the instructor told us to push it and “we weren’t going to bulk up”. I laughed.
So, I missed the memo on Uber drivers rating the riders! Yeah, this girl is kind of entitled, but still… I am now rethinking how long I may accidentally make them wait sometimes.
Happiness is a choice. Sometimes it is difficult to get to that place – it’s a lot of work and conscious decisions – but here are five tips to be happier this year.
This graphic of how creative types spend their days is so interesting to me.
Stop being self-conscious at work! It could be holding you back.
I try making my own bars whenever possible. Did you have any idea that so many popular snack bars were so full of junk? *cough Quest Bars cough* Robyn from The Real Life RD has a great breakdown of good and bad bar options.
These beet crepes with apple filling from Running Sri Lankan look absolutely amazing. Need to roast beets today to make these for Saturday post-long run.
These Dark Chocolate Dipped Crunchy Coconut Cashew Sesame Bars look beyond insane.
I think I keep passing Korea Town when I’m driving through Richmond back from Ocean Beach. Until I figure it out and stop, I’m going to make Erin’s Bibimbap to hold me over.
The only fun piece of news I have is that I am running the Kaiser Permanente Half-Marathon on February 2nd. Any other Bay Area runners care to join me?
