Now Trending – Best Links Week of 12.7
Happy Friday, pals. This is my last weekend of the year in the city. It feels weird that as much as I’m looking forward to going back to Pittsburgh and seeing my family and friends, I also feel weird leaving San Francisco for two weeks. What will I do without all my friends here and SoulCycle and my therapist and my physical therapist and good coffee and good avocados and being able to buy wine at Whole Foods? That’s when you know you’re home, friends. And when I return to San Francisco, my cousin Jaimie will be here!
Here are the best links I found this week, between press events and drinking a very good bottle of wine with my friends to celebrate work and life and sleeping terribly.
Cuba is still high on my travel list… but some of these other up-and-coming travel destinations are earning a spot on my list, too.
11 tips for sleeping on a plane. I mean it’s the most uncomfortable thing ever but I’ve gotten pretty good at the red-eye.
The science behind the five dumbest things you do when you’re drunk. College Cassie lost a lot of keys, made out with boys who were not quite up to par and definitely texted exes. Oh wait, I still do that. And eat two slices of pizza. Oy vey.
A mash-up of the 50 top songs of the year. The number of times I have listened to all of these songs running and in SoulCycle the past year is insane.
Why Instagram captions are the new blogging.
The best food props from the Food52 Shop. I basically want them all.
Running and Fitness
How often should runners really strength train? Twice a week and on the same days as you run, especially a hard run. I’ve been working on my strength since I can’t run. It’s not that I hate it, it’s that I hate making the time for it.
This article penned by someone who used to make fun of SoulCycle… and now they can’t quit. I got on my phone to sign-up at 12:01 p.m. (1 minute after sign-ups opened) on Monday because I was in a meeting… and got wait-listed or on the worst bikes (aka not front row) for every class I wanted. Not real life!
I would be lying if I said I haven’t been craving a bagel for approximately months but I know a West Coast bagel won’t kill that craving. An interesting article though on the rise of the San Francisco Bagel, typically made of sourdough!
This couple Instagrams different types of breakfast from around the world… and I immediately began Googling to see where I could find all of these foods in SF.
This post feels pretty personal — ManRepeller talks about talking about food.
I want this Milk Bread in my life.

What breakfast food from a different country do you want to try? What up-and-coming travel destination do you want to visit? What do you think about the rise of Instagram as blogging? How can I improve my sleep?
