Now Trending – Best Links Week of 11.17
Procrastination has hit me hard this week. I’ve been writing every post super late night. I have a mounting to-do list. My living room (can you even call it that if it’s a studio?) is still just piles of clothes and boxes because I haven’t bought a dresser yet so they have no home. Someone come get my life together for me please.
I had a strangely hard time finding the best links of the week. Since I’m all about quality over quantity, I hope you guys like these ones as much as I do.
The 15 Top Destinations of 2015 including Oman, the Philippines, Serbia and… Morocco! (Jaimie/Jessi, are you reading this?)
I want to go to the world’s least visited countries. Especially because I live in a city overrun by tourists on Segways.
Decorating a studio from scratch isn’t as stress-free or economical as I thought it would be. I’m loving these tips on having an adult apartment on a budget.
My dad has a great theory called “if you make more money than it costs to pay someone to do, pay someone to do it”. Is it worth it to try and DIY something for 10 hours that would cost $100 to buy? No, unless you make $10 an hour. This Google Chrome extension puts prices into how much of your time it is worth.
I have a solid five to six figures worth of American Girl Dolls at my dad’s house.
I have been lacking on fitness motivation lately. Blame it on not having a race to train for, moving across the country and general burnout, but I need to get back on the wagon. Emily had a great post on where she finds her inspiration and motivation.
Working out and not seeing results? Yeah, me too. Deryn from Running on Real Food has great tips on seeing results from your workouts.
I honestly have a nut butter problem. I’m two or three spoonfuls away from having a Bravo show about my life in nut butter rehab. This guide to nut butters really didn’t help anything.
A really novel thing for me is the fact that I can buy alcohol at the grocery store. Not that I couldn’t do that in West Virginia, but the alcohol laws in Pennsylvania are Draconian. Anyway, Lesley reminded me I could buy wine at Trader Joe’s. I would never drink Two Buck Chuck because that stuff has like, rat pieces in it, but I will drink these 7 Wines at Trader Joe’s for Thanksgiving Dinner.
This harissa is very timely as I had delicious harissa at a Moroccan place over the weekend and now I can’t stop thinking about it.
I’ve been thinking about this sweet potato pizza from Erin all week.
Chat with me:
What food can you not be trusted around? Will you drink Two Buck Chuck? Where do you hope to travel in 2015? What other awesome things did I miss this week? (Leave me a link in the comments!)
