Now Trending – Best Links Week of 4.20

now-trending-20150423

I sit writing this on Thursday night after a pretty epic past few days. My friend Chrissy is in town from Pittsburgh and I’ve had a lot of awesome dinners out, morning runs and hikes after work. Isn’t life in SF crazy? It’s stupid how lucky I am to live here. I imagine what people are doing in their day to day lives in the city I left and it’s hard to feel sad about much of anything.

Obviously, I’ve been a little busy imbibing and indulging and being myself again so I really haven’t had a chance to read (or comment on) many blogs but here are the best links I found this week. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did.

Lifestyle
Sometimes I have trouble getting motivated to do big things – not to mention all of the little errands that come with being an adult, like renewing your library books and remembering to pay your electric bill and cleaning your fridge. Everyone needs a Get Shit Done (GSD) friend to keep you accountable.

Truthfully, sometimes having a real job is difficult as a creative person. It’s hard for me to keep my brain on one task when I’m inspired by everything or have strokes of genius and ideas coming at the weirdest time. I love these tips for work-life balance for creative types.

These 10 Tips to Finding Your Dream Job are just 10 great tips for life, if we’re being honest.

Career advice from 34 of NYC’s most powerful women is just everything.

Travel
Despite popular Pittsburgh/Midwest opinion, the ACE is not an Instagram-worthy hotel. These 20 Instagram worthy hotels are all making me want to pack my bags this second.

I’m ready to eat my way up the Northern California coast this summer.

I think having more than one passport if you have dual-citizenship is so key. Surprisingly, the US and the UK have the most number of countries that do not require a visa. Check out where other countries stand on this Passport Index.

Running and Fitness
These memorable moments from the Boston Marathon are making me super pumped for the Pittsburgh Marathon. 9 days, what?!

Food
Homemade pizza is one of my favorite things to cook and I don’t do it nearly enough. This list of 74 ways to make pizza healthier is basically 74 ways to make pizza more delicious.

Restaurant food typically tastes better than homemade for a reason – lots of butter and salt. I love this article about what a maître d’hotel learned working at a three Michelin star restaurant in NYC.

Uh this visual map of food from every state is everything. Did you know pepperoni rolls were invented in West Virginia? What up, obesity and drunk food?

I need this lentil salad with spring greens, asparagus and an egg in my life.

Chat with me:
What food on the map is from your state? What is the most Instagram-worthy place you’ve stayed?

Most Instagram worth place I’ve stayed is Bodrum Turkey. Amazingly beautiful water and gentle rolling hills.

About to go read that balancing act post – especially since I have an end date at work now, it’s hard to stay focused and energized. Also going to check out that lentil salad! Yum! Happy weekend, Cassie! xo

Having visitors is an excuse to go to super-expensive restaurants and have all the food. Enjoy it! And yes, SF is the best! :)

I could NOT agree more about the whole ‘being an adult’ errands that are easy to forget, annoying, and get int he way. Like I need to set up a savings account…and haven’t yet
