Now Trending – Best Links Week of 9.14

Photo credit: 1 / 2 / 3

Mercury is in retrograde again. I just can’t with Mercury. I’m going to assume I’m not getting broken up with this time around since I’m single but I’ve just felt off the past few days. Luckily this weekend I’ll be seeing my girl Davida who is in town.

Anyway, since this is my little space to talk about what’s going on in my life each week, I volunteered with work yesterday at the Boys and Girls Club. I’ve never volunteered there before, either in SF or in Pittsburgh. A kid told me he wanted a burrito and it was the most adorable SF thing I have ever heard.

Here are some of the best links I found this week. Enjoy.

Travel
I’m planning a Lake Tahoe trip soon. Loving this guide from Making Thyme For Health of where to stay, dine and play in Tahoe.

I totally believe everyone should travel solo at least once in their life – you learn a lot about yourself, get to do whatever you want and are forced outside of your comfort zone. These are the best countries to travel solo.

If these places in LA are good enough for Beyonce, you best believe I’m visiting them on my next LA trip.

Lifestyle
People read the last text their ex (or like current hook-up or whatever) ever sent them. They are all pure gold. I have some gems including ones from boys whose new girlfriends were probably asleep next to them.

Kind of obsessed for these New Rules For Dinners With Friends. If we’re at a restaurant and you’re not snapping a photo for Instagram, we all should have our phones put away.

Looking to get the new iPhone next week? I have a time slot reserved… now to see how to score some money for my shattered iPhone 5S.

What your Instagram filter says about you. I’ve been cheating on Lo-Fi or Valencia with all the new filters lately.

Food
Pizza flavored ice cream is a thing now in LA. Why is everything cool food wise in LA right now?

I’m all about using up food. I have this weird thing with wasting it. I think it’s guilt over people in other countries not having enough food. Here’s some ideas for how to use up every food.

Healthy snacks to keep at the office. I have KIND bars in my desk at all times.

Someone please bring me a container of homemade ricotta right now so I can have these pumpkin ricotta pancakes for breakfast.

Chat with me:
What are your feelings on phones at the dinner table? Would you eat pizza flavored ice cream? What’s the best last text you got from an ex? And by best I mean most terrible.

I’m all about the Clarendon filter on Iphone + the lux filer thing. Those two together are like unstoppable. I cannot WAIT to see the texts to exes :D

“Mercury is in retrograde” is such a funny phrase haha. I would probably never try pizza flavored ice cream haha well okay i’d try it but I doubt I’d like it. I’d probably have a real pizza next to me as a chaser ;) I agree on the new rules for dining! We need to have a global meeting about this! Haha have a great weekend!

I love making a phone away zone when I’m with family and friends. If everyone participates it’s SO nice.
Yes. There are always snacks at my desk.
And I totally agree wasting food is the worst feeling.

I don’t even take my phone inside the restaurant. You should check out my blog from Tuesday. I have implemented a no device day at my house. I would definitely try pizza ice cream. Thanks for sharing’
have a great weekend

Well this shows you how uncool I am, because I live in LA and have never even heard of pizza flavored ice cream haha Leave it to LA to come up with some crazy ice cream combo!
