Now Trending – Best Links Week of 10.20
Confession: I may or may not be writing this after a couple glasses of Pinot Grigio. Remember when I used to be healthy? Yeah, me either.
Speaking of NYC, Refinery29 compiled the 30 Most Instagrammed Restaurants in NYC. Carly, I think we need to get our #eatingfortheinsta game on!
I said the official sponsor of #funemployment was joggers (because I wore them one day… and okay, on the way home from San Francisco) but I am a fan of clothes that can go from workout to the bar (because I don’t care about how I look in Pittsburgh… which is a thought process I need to change before I move!)
Um… this Pendleton X Nike Collab is everything. I may have a pair of shoes on the way.
This week, I lamented on how running a half-marathon felt like NBD and felt guilty because this big experience just felt… ordinary. (And, side note, the same day “GOMI Almost Getting it Together” was in my Google Search results so I know at least one of you out there thinks I’m a jerk… c’mon person, just start a thread about me!) Sometime, extraordinary things become ordinary, but is that any less reason to celebrate them? Loved this post from Chris from I Failed Fran about celebrating the grind.
Okay, I’m not one to preach about budgets because they are one of those things I think about but don’t do. Here are 9 good money tips you can do in 10 minutes or less (I do the automatic savings thing… trust me, it’s a good practice!).
You’ve seen moving checklists and if you’ve ever moved, you’ve probably made one… they go something like: call cable company, fill out change of address form, etc. etc. What about the first thing you should scope out in your new neighborhood? (Hot single guys who work for Twitter/Facebook/Google, duh.)
Running and Fitness
I have a total girl/running crush on Tina. Even more so because she is an elite runner that keeps it real. She understands racing rate versus real weight and how it is important to weigh a few more pounds to be a stronger runner rather than injure yourself.
Oh shit, I think I’m a basic fitness bitch.
I love charts. Blame the analytics/math nerd in me (note: I never want to work in analytics.) Anyway, this chart of how the world eats in terms of produce, meat, grains, sugar etc. is super interesting.
Hey food bloggers… want to make your own photography board? My boo Erin has a great DIY Food Photography Board tutorial. Now to just get her to SF to make one for me…
Um, do trick-or-treators come to the Marina for Halloween? If not, I’ll be doing wine pairings with Halloween candy. (Note: last year the Pisone house gave out pretzels and kids were NOT AMUSED.)
I talked about these amazing Bambaloni Beans I had in Sausalito last week. So now I’m thinking they have to be a staple in my kitchen. I’m like not about stirring things though (I have ADD) so here’s how to cook beans in the oven.
You can take good food photos on your iPhone! Love these iPhone food photography tips.
Chat with me:
Real serious question: would you be interested in seeing posts about home decorating for my new place in San Francisco? Other, better questions: are you a basic fitness bitch (it’s okay if you are!)? What Halloween candy are you giving out? What is the most important place to scope out in your new hood? What is the best thing you read all week that I neglected to mention? (Probably nothing because these are the best links, duh… JK.)
