A few good links that I enjoyed reading

Hello to you, my friends! I hope your week is going well. I should be waking up back in California today after a wonderful Hawaiian vacation, which I’ll tell you about soon. But today, it’s all about sharing some unrelated good content from around the Interwebs.

As you can imagine, I spend a lot of time reading articles and blog posts each week. While I like to start my day with some news from the SFGate website, I always move on to other sites throughout the day and love it when I come across interesting stuff, which teaches me something new.

A few good links that I enjoyed reading via A Lady Goes West

Here are a few recent good reads worth sharing …

  • The Avocado Recipe Everyone’s Pinning Like Crazy via Self. I must admit, I have never cooked or eaten an avocado in this way and that needs to change immediately. These pictures and descriptions make my mouth water!
  • The Science Behind Why Traveling Makes You Healthier via POPSUGAR. Amen to this! I wish I traveled more than I do, and I’m happy to report my trip to Hawaii should be a bolster to my health. Dave’s too!
  • Whole Foods vs. Trader Joe’s: A Price Comparison of Popular Grocery Items via SFGate. I love reading things like this. So yes, Whole Foods is more expensive, but believe it or not, both stores charge the same for generic almond butter. 
  • Make Money Blogging: Self-Review Your Blog so it Will Shine via Coach Debbie Runs. So much good information about making sure your blog is user-friendly and professional. How am I doing on this one?
  • What Do We Mean by Yoga Practice by Running with the Sunrise. I’m always “practicing” yoga, and some days are better than others. I love the reason we refer to it in this way. And yes, this post is written by a real yoga teacher, whom I had the pleasure of meeting at BlogFest in LA this year.
  • Phrases You Will Never Hear a San Francisco Resident Say via SFGate. I always have a hard time telling my friends and family from the East Coast, that you just aren’t supposed to refer to San Francisco as “San Fran.” That’s something Dave and I learned from a local before we moved here, so we never had to make that mistake in person. This is a round-up of other fun terms you don’t hear in the Bay Area. Totally entertaining!
  • Make Your Bed, Change Your Life via Huffington Post. I mean, you’re preaching to the choir with this one. I cannot leave the house without a made bed and fluffed pillows, and this article explains why that’s the right thing to do. Bed-makers, unite!

And the list could go on, but I think that’ll keep you busy for today!

  1. Welcome back Ashley! Can’t wait to hear all about your Hawaiian vacay!! Wow that avo recipe post is insane, I can see myself being impartial to the goat cheese version. I’ve tried the egg one and found it a little bland! And “meet you for lunch at pier 39?” Neverrrrrrr haha. I tell all tourist friends to avoid it, but they always end up there. Safe travels back!!

  2. I usually check Huffington Post or the Daily Beast for my daily news / interesting articles. And I’m really glad to learn I’m not the only one who HAS TO MAKE THE BED before I can get on with my day. And if I’m in a rush I have to make my bed first thing when I get home. I simply cannot get back into an unmade bed πŸ™‚
