How to travel like a pro with a carry on bag

There is nothing that I like more than traveling, getting the chance to explore new places, trying new food and even experiencing a different weather is just indescribable. The excitement is real, but there is one thing that I might not enjoy as much, and that is packing.

Packing can be a complete nightmare, why? Well, I find that it is something that most people like to leave as a last-minute duty, and doing that can, and most likely will, increase your stress levels. There’s a million things to take care of during a trip, and on top of that we still have to worry about what clothes to pack and try to fit most of your wardobe in a teeny tiny bag (if you don’t want to pay for full size luggage during flights), well maybe not all of your belongings but if you’re going away for a week that’s 7 outfits plus pj’s, toilettries, flat or curling iron (some people even decide to pack both).

If you are someone that tends to struggle and stress out when it comes to packing… this is for you.

First of all, it doesn’t matter if you’re hopping on a plane and traveling overseas or if you are just going away for the weekend in a little roadtrip, these tips will totally make your trip a lot more enjoyable.

Bikini season is finally here, oh the most amazing seasons of the year, spring and summer, when most people get a break from school or their jobs to enjoy a little bit of sunlight and pool-delight. The odds are that if you’re reading this, it’s because you don’t feel ready for that season just yet. Maybe it’s because you feel insecure about exposing too much skin at the beach, maybe you haven’t found the perfect swim suit that will adapt to your body, whichever that reason is, I’m here to help you out.

Everybody out there says that there’s no way you can get your body prepared to wear a bikini in a week or two, in fact, you probably should have started hitting the gym right after the holidays were over. On the contrary, I think that there is a magic formula that can help every single one of you to look fabulous during your spring break, summer vacation, staycation or even a local pool party. That’s right, I’ve got a 3 – step magic formula that will make you feel amazing and be bikini ready in no time, you know what’s the best part? I’m willing to share it with you. Okay so here it is…

There are only a few things that I enjoy as much as going through a fashion magazine or staying in to watch a movie, so getting to do both things at the same time is golden for me. There have been many amazing series devoted to fashion and style, like the oh so perfect Gossip Girl, from the wardrobe, to the locations and the psychology of the characters that managed to inspire us in every single episode. Since the Serena Van Der Woodsen days are long gone, I thought it was time to bring back that amazing feeling, but this time focusing on the major motion pictures. I’ve decided to share with you 7 of my favorite fashion related movies.

1. The Devil Wears Prada

I know you’ve probably seen this movie a billion times, but not including it would be a terrible sin. I won’t go a lot into what this movie is about because I don’t want to spoil it for you if you haven’t seen it. Just watch it and thank me later. This movie was adapted from a book written by Lauren Weisberger, who worked at Vogue magazine for awhile. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out she was inspired by Anna Wintour (American Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief) to create Meryl Streep’s character.

2. The September Issue

Talking about the Queen.

The September Issue is a documentary that focuses on Anna Wintour, Vogue’s Editor-In-Chief while preparing the start of the “Fashion Year”. If you didn’t know, september is like january for fashion magazines. It’s the most important issue of the year, and when you’re the leader of a magazine like Vogue, everything has to be perfect.

3. The Intern

The Intern is a movie starring Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro. It talks about an old man that applies for a retirement internship citizen program and lands a job at an e-commerce fashion startup. This is the best fashion + comedy combo. You’ll love it.

4. Coco before Chanel

This movie is next on my list when I get to stay in. This french movie tells the story of Coco Chanel, all the way from her origins to the incredible empire she ended up building. She was truly a pioneer in the fashion world and everybody should know her story, plus I’m pretty sure this one is available on Netflix.

5. Funny Face

Funny Face is a musical from 1957 starring Audrey Hepburn and Fred Astaire. Audrey’s character, Jo Stockton, is discovered at a fashion shoot in a bookstore and her adventures as a model take her all the way to Paris. If you love musicals, you will adore this movie. Besides, who doesn’t love a good Audrey Hepburn movie?

6. Confessions of a Shopaholic

A girl that loves fashion, living in New York. Sounds like a dream, right? Yeah, well… things can get really messy when you’re a shopaholic. If you love to shop and your happiness leves rise overtime you see the word “sale” you will relate. Honestly this movie is all of us, and its perfect for a popcorn night with your bestie.

7. Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Another Audrey Hepburn movie and a classic for sure. Breakfast at Tiffany’s is based on a book written by Truman Capote. It revolves around the peculiar life of Holly Golightly, a New Yorker socialite and her cat. If you haven’t seen this one, do it, you won’t regret it. Besides, it has just the perfect touch of romance.

Do you know any other movies that are a must for fashion lovers?

Let’s be friends!

Believe it or not, we are halfway through january (what, already?). So, how are you doing with your new year’s resolutions? If one of your goals this year is to get more fit, this tips are for you. Not all of us have the money (or time) to sign up for a gym membership, and maybe you do but sometimes you only have a few minutes a day to get a workout and the gym is just too far away, maybe you just feel lazy… there are a million reasons why working out is just not happening for you, and whatever those reasons are, here are some tips to get your fit on, for free.

Drink More Water

So simple, yet so hard. Just ditch all those sodas and sugar filled beverages for plain old water. You’ll see the results in no-time. You will feel more energized. If you want to take this to the next level: carry a re-usable water bottle (be nice to the environment) everywhere you go. Cheers!

Walk

Whenever you can, take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park you car farther than usual so you get to walk more, you can even ditch your car when you have to travel short distances. Next level: Make a hella-good playlist on your phone or your favorite music streaming app and go for a walk or run around your neighborhood, you can even take your dog.

Workout At Home

There are a lot of different ways for this one, my favorite one is… youtube videos. You can find any kind of workout imaginable, you just have to find a place in your house and press play. My personal favorite is Cassey Ho from Blogilates. She provides you a completely free monthly workout calendar, in which she tells you exactly which of her videos you have to do every single day. All you need is a mat or a carpet. Next level: Make some space in your daily agenda and dedicate an hour a day for workouts (and actually do them) for a month, you’ll feel amazing.

Use Your School / Apartment Gym

This is very self explanatory. Do your research and find out if your school or apartment building have a gym of its own, most of the times they do and the best part if that you can use it for free (it’ already charged in your tuition or rent).

Play Your Favorite Sport

Just call some friends, meet in a close-by park that has a basketball or football field, bring a ball and have fun! You will have a lot of fun and a great workout. The best of both worlds.

Believe In You

You might have access to all the gyms in the world, but if you don’t have motivation you will not accomplish anything. Wether you want to loose/gain weight, get fit or simply get more active, none of this tips will work if you don’t believe in you. When you’re working out and you feel like you’re dying (that would be me), just remind yourself how amazing you will feel when you complete the workout session, what will happen when you keep doing that for a week, then a month, then a year? You can do anything, just believe in you.
