Now Trending – Best Links Week of 5.4


Photo credit: 1 / 2 / 3

I didn’t have a lot of time to read blogs this week as I have been soaking in every moment home that isn’t spent working. This trip definitely feels a lot different than my trip home during Christmas for a number of reasons. Here are the best links I found this week.

This could even fall under lifestyle but this is literally just #goals from relationship to house to life.

I need to plan my next trip soon and may be using these gorgeous roads as inspiration.

See above: bucket list destinations on a budget. I’ve been to Angkor Wat in Siem Reap… I’m hoping Morocco or even Havana next!

Whenever you see how people’s style evolves throughout the years, is it really their fashion sense improving or just the evolution of fashion? The comparison between these style bloggers’ style when they started blogging and now is still amusing either way.

My kitchen is kind of perfect for the most part, but if I ever move out to a less wonderful kitchen, I’ll for sure use these tips on how to personalize your rental.

I think before I even crossed the finish line of the Pittsburgh Marathon last weekend, I knew I wanted to run another marathon. Angela sent me this great article on perceived pain after a marathon and how it decreases as time passes.

How does your marathon time stack up against other runners around the world?

Marisa’s recipes are always a home run. I hope we can have a homemade brunch date or two when she moves to the Bay this summer, especially if she makes these Huevos Rancheros.

Kendrick Lamar has his own kale salad now incase you were worried. It’s called Beets Don’t Kale My Vibe so like, that’s a thing.

How do I love avocado toast? Let me count the ways…

What does your favorite breakfast cereal say about you? I don’t know what mine is! It’s a cross between Special K, Cocoa Puffs and Honey Nut Cherrios, not that I’ve eaten any of those in years…

Chat with me:
What is your favorite breakfast cereal? What do you top your avocado toast with? What rapper should get his own salad next?

Fave cereal would definitely be difficult to turn down. Can I pick all of them and then just get handfuls of each?

I think I’m the only sad healthy-living blogger in the world who hasn’t actually tried avocado toast. :( Don’t tell!

My favorite way to eat avocado on toast is to lightly sprinkle it with pepper and feta cheese and then add slice tomato! And congrats on your marathon they are so addicting, I have done 3. I didn’t do one last year but am thinking of doing one perhaps late this year or early spring next year.

Yum that sounds so good – I’ve been all about the tomatoes lately.

The cereal test – too funny, frosted flakes and mini wheats were my go to’s as a youngin. The accuracy of the mini wheats is funny – nerd at heart. Congratulations on your marathon last weekend, great accomplishment :)

I have so many new windows open now to digest… thanks for keeping my Friday educational ;)

I just had honey nut cheerios for the first time in a while-so good! I love cinnamon life or cocoa puffs or captain crunch. So sugary, but so good!

I linked that cereal post in my round up today too! It was surprisingly accurate. I’m loving the ‘then/now’ fashion blogger article. Makes me feel better about some of my outfit choices. Have a great weekend!

Okay, so I still have yet to do the whole avocado toast thing. That needs to change. That one with tomatoes and basil looks amazing.

The fashion blogger comparison made me LOL. I’m thinking it’s probably a combination of both. No words for the Kendrick Lamar thing (but I may buy one of the shirts…). And, if you love cocoa puffs, you need to try Love Grown Foods Chocolate Power Os. So good :D
