Now Trending – Best Links Week of 6.1
So… this post is a little late. I had started it earlier in the week but I’ve been surprisingly social and busy all week so it was never finished. Despite going to bed at 11:30 last night (late for me!) my body was up and ready to start the day at 5 a.m. I’m going to feel like death at 3 p.m. for sure.
I luckily had a bunch of the best links I found last week still stored away so I’m sharing these with you and hopefully going back to sleep for a few hours!
When some people travel to a foreign city, they take a bus tour with other Americans or eat at restaurants with pictures out front (pro tip: never eat anywhere there are pictures of the food on the window). Here is how you really experience a foreign city.
How to travel like Anthony Bourdain. Need I say more?
I want to stay in every single one of these stunning beach homes, but especially Jade Jagger’s in Goa.
I’ve talked about my make-up free skincare routine before and I’m a big fan of Josie Maran’s Argan Skincare Ritual. People are hesitant on using facial oils but this article busts the myths that you’ll break out or have oily skin.
I really should have sat down and decided on a color palette for my apartment rather than just jumping in and buying things I hoped worked together. Also, Elsie from A Beautiful Mess’s home is gorgeous.
Don’t have the budget for a gym membership? Not an excuse for not exercising Greatist has a list of cheap or free workout resources. (Hint: Running is also mainly free, but can be expensive if you want it to be too – not that I know from experience.)
It’s bikini season – everywhere but San Francisco because it’s winter here. Tone up your core with these kettlebell exercises.
I can’t get behind body-weight workouts… I don’t know why. Using dumbbells or hand weights are is just so fun to me – which is why I’m going to try this Full Body Circuit Workout with Dumbbells.
I’ve always been a fan of non-traditional meats. My parents made me try everything growing up so I’m pretty sure I had tried Noah’s Arc by the time I was in Kindergarten.
Here’s something you might not want to know about your go-to green smoothie – it might not be as healthy as you think. Three kinds of fruit, two tablespoons of almond butter, protein powder – that stuff lays on calories and sugar quickly. Here’s why I’ve been experimenting with fructose-free smoothies all week.
Speaking of trying to lose weight and failing miserably because there are so many tasty things in the world to try, thank God I’m too lazy to make these Xi’an Style Lamb Meatball Sandwiches because they look insane.
I need to make veggie ice cubes for my smoothies!
Chat with me:
Are you a morning person or a night owl? What is the weirdest meat you’ve ever eaten? Do you have any fructose-free smoothie recipes for me?
