Now Trending – Best Links Week of 11.30

Photo credit: 1 / 2 / 3 / 4

After a solid few weeks of sleeping eight hours a night (that’s what happens when you can’t get up and run in the morning) I’ve totally stopped sleeping again. I don’t know what’s wrong with me. But it’s bordering on midnight as I write this and I’ve watched one too many episodes of Scream Queens (my total guilty pleasure show ) so I should get to bed.

Enjoy the best links I’ve found this week – I need to get my beauty rest incase I see my BF Jake Gyllenhaal out and about in SF filming Zodiac 2.

Travel
Kind of surprised by the most Instagrammed spots in every state. Mostly that Milan Puskar Stadium wasn’t the most Instagrammed spot in West Virginia… and that the zoo was the most Instagrammed spot in Pittsburgh? Say what?

The final frontiers of travel. Is it completely crazy I kind of want to go to South Sudan? (The answer is YES.)

The six people you meet on vacation. Does that mean we all fall into one of these archetypes? I suppose I’m some awful combination of the first three.

Lifestyle
We’re all busy this time of year (and in general, right?) and sometimes our calendars get mad over-whelming. Some tips for organizing your calendar,  including that it’s okay to say no to things you don’t really want to do, schedule a day all for yourself each week (I do that!) and outsource where you can. (Google Express or Instacart anyone?)

I’ve basically not started any holiday shopping (shocker) and for those of you in my boat, here’s a guide to perfect gift baskets.

Saving money is way more important than most of us millennials realize but don’t fall for these money saving myths.

Blogging
I need more food props in my life. Loving this list of essential food props for bloggers by Georgie from In It 4 the Long Run.

Running and Fitness
Basically I take anything elite runner Tina Muir says about running as the gospel. Her Gift Guide for Runners was giving me some ideas of what to ask for myself!

This Amish kid is running marathons faster than me in full Amish regalia in PA of course.

Food
100 years of dinner in the US in three minutes. I feel like they are totally spot on.

I’m back on the overnight oats train… definitely going to make these Snickerdoodle Vegan Overnight Oats from Food Faith Fitness.

Cornbread French Toast. That’s all there is to say.

Chat with me:
Have you watched Scream Queens? What meals did you at growing up? What do you think is the most Instagrammed spot in your state? What are you up to this weekend?

I need food props, space to put them when not in use, and better lighting. Also, that cornbread french toast? YES

Hi Cassie! Saying no to things is important, and I’m doing more and more of that these days. Thanks for the great links — I LOVE Georgie’s post on props. I need to step up my game!
