For a feature I want to do weekly, Now Trending is lucky to get a post every month and a half. Poor Now Trending, the ugly stepchild of Almost Getting it Together. Here are a bunch of links and things I’ve been inspired by lately.
Obsessed with these 12 hour travel guides. The Portland one is pretty decent, it nabs a few places I love including Powell’s Books, Salt and Straw (duh) and The Screen Door (Garden Grits for the win).
Know your personality but not where your next destination should be? The Weekender breaks down a few destinations like Savannah, Tulum and Napa Valley by what kind of traveler you are – first class flyer, global nomad, or foodie to name a few.
“Insta or it didn’t happen.” One of my biggest stressors when packing is “What have I not been Instagrammed wearing?” Spoiler alert, not this chambray tank I have, because it’s in like 20 pictures. (Fun fact, I’m an awfully vain person, I know.) Anyway, Refinery29 shows you how to pack an Instagram-Ready Wardrobe.
I really resonated with Arman’s post about food bloggers calling it what it is. If you’re going to blog, at least give it the old college try and don’t phone it in.
I am a big proponent of spending money on my hair. My natural hair color is terrible and boring. There’s a reason good hair products, hair color and cuts are expensive. (Minus Batiste, which is the best dry shampoo in the entire world.)
Catherine from Rabbit Food for My Bunny Teeth talks about how your body image is never the same after battling an eating disorder. A little heavy for my usual light-hearted links, but I could feel where she was coming from.
Don’t you hate those people who try too hard on social media? Now you can make sure you aren’t one of those people.
Love, love, loved this post from Kath Eats Real Food on The Boxed Lunch, or You Can’t Have it All. I love treats as much as the next person (just kidding, I don’t love them as much, because treats to me other than my hardcore ice cream obsession is yogurt with fruit and nut butter), but if you feel the need to treat yourself everyday with food you’ll A) never be fit and B) the allure will be lost. Sorry, rant over.
Um, I need to go to Palo Alto to get one of these Pressed Juice Freezes. Or recreate one on my own.
I need to stop eating granola because I’m addicted, but maybe after I make this Ancient Grains Granola. #loveancientgrains
The latest in basic bitch food? Avocado toast. Elite Daily has it wrong though, because basic bitches think avocados have too much fat.
So into the idea of this Sweet Sticky Coconut Quinoa from Nosh and Nourish.
Obsessed with this folk-cover of 99 Problems by Hugo. Fun fact, this guy wrote “Disappear” for Queen B.
