Now Trending – Best Links Week of 9.29

now_trending_20140929

I am typically so over the whole Fashion Week – I mean month – vibe. I think this little piece of me is just over-saturated with the idea of it and seeing the same 20 runway shots from bloggers. I’m over the ridiculous street style just to get noticed, not because they actually like what they’re wearing. That being said, Paris Fashion Week was on point – even with Kendall Jenner walking in like every show ever – so a lot of the best links this week are about Paris Fashion Week. #sorryimnotsorry

Travel
Once again this week, I am in desperate need of a vacation. I also think I am nearing the point of needing a digital detox. I have about half of these retreats bookmarked.

Looking for love? Maybe visit one of the 25 Most Romantic Cities in the World.

Totally life crushing on Brooke from World of Wanderlust. She has my dream job – travel blogger!

Fashion
Seriously obsessed with the Spring/Summer 2015 Valentino show.

Karl Lagerfeld knows how to make a statement. Check out Chanel’s 18 Most Drastic Fashion Show Locations.

Givenchy show, you did your job. I want a pair of thigh-high boots.

Food
All about the funny snacks in different parts of the world. Secret fact: I love Kit-Kat bars. No, I haven’t had one in honestly probably years but if I’m in England, you best believe I’m dipping one in my coffee. Anyway, check out these 11 Japanese Snacks… including green tea Kit Kats! (Warning: number 11 is gross.)

Oatmeal for life. The Kitchn had a wonderful Ultimate Guide to Oatmeal this week.

Oh snap, check out my Peach Overnight Oatmeal on Relish.com’s 20 Overnight Oat Recipes.

I want to make these Vanilla Chickpea Protein Bars from Hummusapien ASAP!

Need this toast with roast squash, prosciutto and eggs.

Running
Earlier this week I wrote a post about what it was like to feel a little burned out on marathon training (which totally resonated with you guys, I was so surprised by all of your opinions and thoughts!). Amanda from Run to the Finish has 12 Tips to Avoid Marathon Training Burnout.

Kind of silly, but most are true: 29 Signs You Ran Cross-Country in High School.

Chat with me:
What things are you loving this week? What things are you hating this week? Kendall Jenner – yay or nay? (I honestly don’t care.)

I think Kendall Jenner is gorgeous, but I am anti kardashian in general, so…. As long as she earns it, leave it be. And there are matcha pocky too. GROSS. I hate macha. Will you be my date for the 25 most romantic cities???

I kind of like matcha… haha. AND YES. Of course. We won’t have to eat/drink any matcha things, either.

My friend brought back some of those green tea kit kats for me from Japan, and they’re sooo good! I also learned this from my British man-friend, have you ever tried using a twix bar to drink a cup of tea? It’s pretty fun!

Link posts are the best! Thanks for sharing this. I don’t have much time for internet research.
This week I’ve been loving RUNNING (it feels so great to be getting back at it) and the raspberry cheesecake I just devoured in the work cafeteria. MMM

Don’t hate me but Kit Kats are actually my least favorite candy! Not sure why but they just don’t get me all hot and bothered ;) I love that Bruges and Prague are on that romantic cities list! I loved those cities – they’re completely underrated and so, so beautiful. I can only imagine traveling there with someone I love!

Love these links, especially the oatmeal guide! I recently got back into overnight oats for breakfast and I can’t get enough- it’s like dessert for breakfast :)! As for green tea, Kit Kats, I need some of ’em in my life ASAP! I’ll pass on the boiled potato variety though!

Yes, boiled potato… yuck. I don’t even like white potatoes as it is!
