Two weeks in a row of ‘Now Trending’? I know, I’m as shocked as you. Go check out some of the best links I’ve found over the past few weeks (and maybe have been hoarding a little bit for this post).

I’m such an over-packer, I never have room to bring much home (travel hack: if you’re going somewhere really awesome, take clothes you can throw away or donate when you’re done then fill your bag up with new things!). Camille Styles has a few souvenirs that can be tucked into over-flowing suitcases.

I really want to visit Bermuda and it really isn’t that far away… isn’t is strange to think of a tropical island being off the coast of North Carolina? I actually also had a PowerPoint of why my dad should take me to Bermuda for my birthday (clearly it didn’t happen). Refinery29 has a great piece on How to Do Bermuda in One Weekend.

I’ve never been too quiet about the fact that I wear make-up maybe a dozen times a year. Ebay Fashion did an experiment to see how different styles of make-up changed people’s perceptions. I guess the only thing I have going for me in the not-wearing-make-up-front is that I look younger than I already do.

I’ve talked about my Joy of Missing Out (JOMO). Greatist had an awesome article on how to embrace being alone.

On the note of being alone, I love this Single Lady Dating Advice. Hint: red flags like guys who are into drugs, guys with girlfriends and broke boys are not cute.

I’m an Italian girl who doesn’t love pasta but I do love this helpful guide on which type of sauce is best for which noodle type.

This is the cleanest birthday cake I have seen. I need this Funfetti Birthday Cake with Cashew Icing from Edible Perspective ASAP.

I’ve been dying over this Salmon Fig Pizza from Health Love & Chocolate since she posted it on her Instagram account.

Kylie’s Instagram account gets me on the daily. I have to get this Peanut Butter Cookie Chia Seed Banana Pudding in my life this weekend.

Some people go to yoga to relax, I go for a workout that is also going to clear my mind. Also typically for loosening up after running 30+ miles a week and monthly cross-country flights. Free People’s blog had a cool workout for intensifying your yoga routine for those days you need a little zen.

I will run in basically any weather: 100 degrees, pouring rain, -8 degrees and blizzarding, so I’m pretty excited for Tina’s series on how to handle weather variables when you’re running.

Which of these reads was your favorite? What are you up to this weekend? As always, leave something cool I may have personally missed in the comments.

My parents honeymooned in Bermuda. They loved it & have always wanted to go back. Probs told you this before… we were supposed to go in 2001… in September… so it ended up not happening.

Can’t wait to see you tonighttttt I miss my soul mate

Nice finds! I don’t think I realized Bermuda was off of North Carolina, but that’s definitely unique! I think it’s be fun to go there, too, just to check out the mystery :)

My fav part of this post is that photo of the sprinkle cake. I am such a sucker for rainbow sprinkles!!! Doesn’t Bermuda have pink sand beaches, too?

I don’t like pasta either, and for some reason, people find that so unfathomable. I don’t know why. I just don’t think it tastes like much and never satiates me. Plus, when I was kid, my mom made spaghetti, like, every 4 days.

I’m craving ice cream… specifically strawberry. Hope I get to go to Salt & Straw before I go to the airport…

Well, it’s usually a given I will click anything that says funfetti, but knowing Ashley made it AND it has cashew icing on it?? I am all over it. Especially since I have no idea what cashew icing is!!
