Now Trending – Best Links Week of 10.12

Photo credit: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4

It’s past my bedtime as I write this… not much exciting going on here this week. I’m running the Nike Women’s Half-Marathon again this weekend then plan on brunch at Nopa, which I haven’t been to in months. Since I need to get to sleep before I have FitBit anxiety over my lack of sleep tomorrow, here are the best links I found this week.

Travel
I want to go on a spa trip with my girl friends… who is in?

Instagram-worthy amenities at hotels… I’d like the Glam Bar, please.

Five Offbeat Vacations That Make You Feel Alive. We all know I’m into the craziest, seediest travel.

I put together a list of San Francisco restaurants you should eat at for Brit + Co.

Lifestyle
I’ve been doing a lot of soul-searching on following my passions (aka blogging). But the life of a fashion blogger isn’t all it’s cracked up to be… and I think having to go to 2-3 events a week is taxing.

I’m super concerned I’ve been emotional eating but everyone tells me eating Greek yogurt and peanut butter after dinner if I’m still hungry isn’t emotional eating. I’m still trying to cut it out… theses ways to soothe without food are great.

Do you find yourself going to the same section of the wine list or wine store every time you’re in the mood for some fermented grapes? Me too. Try these four wines to get out of your wine rut.

Food
I haven’t tried making bread with quinoa yet but Lindsay from Cotter Crunch has me thinking I’m going to be baking tomorrow since I have some cooked quinoa left over…

I realized today I’ve made at least five recipes from I Am a Food Blog which is huge for me because I rarely make recipes (whoops). I made this Miso Dijon Green Bean Mushroom Salad for dinner Thursday night… so. good.

Listen
I love the Jess Lively Show podcast which my dear Davida recommended to me about a year ago when I was going through a rough patch. Wednesday and Thursday just weren’t good days for various reasons and she told me to listen to the newest episode with Elizabeth Gilbert because it would resonate with me – and she was right. I need to learn more compassion for myself ASAP.

Chat with me:
Do you ever listen to Jess Lively? Do you have compassion for yourself? What blogs do you find yourself making recipes from frequently?

Good luck this weekend!
Last night I barely made it to 9:00. I am such a grandma it isn’t even funny. I’m not cool enough to go to any of your restaurants from the list.

Hi Cassie! Great links, as usual. And being a fashion blogger — I mean, getting your serious face for pictures — that’s a task too tall for me. :) Good luck on your run. You’ll rock it. Then have ALL the food at brunch. Happy Friday, lady! Can’t wait to see you next weekend!

Oh, my friends say the same thing about yogurt and PB and fruit to me – until they see the AMOUNT of PB! Great link on those ways to soothe.

great links! I agree, 2-3 events a week is so taxing! I’ve done a few this week and I just want to go home and sleep but I have another social obligation tonight. Womp.

Good luck on your run!

I have been doing a little recipe challenge trying out recipes from other blogs and I have to say I am always drawn to Arman’s at The Big Man’s World, living by myself I love the single serving dessert recipes haha

I loved your post for Brit + Co! And SPOT ON with Pizzeria Delfina, that’s the best pizza I’ve ever had in my life. I have that Jess Lively & Elizabeth Gilbert podcast on my phone so I need to actually listen to it!
