Wanderlust Worthy Luggage Tags for 2016

I’ve already spilled my battle with finding a cute passport holder. Luggage tags can be a struggle as well. You want something that stands out, but not too much. You want to write your name and number in case you lose it. And you can’t stand spending more than it would cost to check the luggage. No worries! Here are five affordable luggage tags that you can purchase in 2016.


Eeeek. I’d look forward to seeing this come around the baggage carousel every time. Get this cutie right here.

Since we already found an adorable elephant passport cover, I figured we could seal the deal with an elephant luggage tag. So happy I did the research.

Verrry crisp and clean. Who doesn’t like a white and navy combo? For the “naughti-cal”girl from Kate Spade, of course.

The Key to Keeping Your Fitness Resolution in 2016

The Key to Keeping Your Fitness Resolution in #2016 || #tips #fitspiration

It’s three weeks into the New Year. You haven’t noticed much of a change, except better sleep and more laundry. You sleep through a Monday workout. You don’t make up for it the next day. When the weekend rolls around, you resort to three days of drinking. And then BAM! It’s the first weekend in April and you’re stressing out over finding a bathing suit that doesn’t make you regret every single dairy product of the past year. What happened to your big fitness resolution?

One of the main reasons we quit working out is a sense of boredom. You get sick of the same songs, same workout, same trainer. This is absolutely natural and should be expected- but we don’t have to surrender! The secret to keeping a fitness resolution is variety. Set yourself up for success with these alternatives to the gym.


Pure Barre

Having spent my whole life playing sports, I assumed I’d be a star student right away… How wrong I was. If you haven’t heard, Pure Barre is based around ballet. It’s perfect for a switch-up because it’s very low impact and gentle on your knees, but killer on your fine muscles, core, and seat (what they call the booty). Bonus: everyone is extremely supportive!



Even if you’ve never wanted to be a in a fight (don’t lie) boxing is suitable for every fitness gal. Try to make it to an actual boxing gym where they’ll condition you harder than anything you can imagine. Then you get to whoop up on some bags or another person.  Here is an at-home workout to test it out.



Okay, cycling is great for people who just CAN’T get into running or those who don’t want to deal with the repercussions of being a runner (shin splints! Ingrown toenails! Sore ta-tas!). Don’t get discouraged if you struggle the first class! It takes a little bit of time to build stamina. SoulCycle manages a perfect ambiance with low lights and pump-up music. Find a class here. 


Ashtanga Yoga

Think this won’t give killer results? That’s because you haven’t tried it, my friend. Bending and balancing engages both the core and a ton of muscles that get forgotten in traditional weightlifting. Follow my girl @kinoyoga for some insta-piration…. (Get it?)



No half-assed two-step! We’re looking for full-body movement with music that has high BMP (beats per minute) to get the heart rate going. Think Salsa or Buchata. Usually, you’ll have the option of a co-ed or women’s class- do whatever feels comfortable! If you aren’t ready to commit, grab a friend and find a local meetup group to find out what dance style you love.


Nike Training Club App

One of my greatest secrets in life. Definitely key for a traveler or student who can’t fork over the cash for a personal trainer. This lovely app has tons of timed workouts from 7-50 minutes with videos of amazing women (Gabby Douglas, Maria Sharapova, etc.) demonstrating each move. You can also connect with friends!



I absolutely love Casey! I started using her free videos when I was a broke-ass sophomore at university, and have been supporting her ever since. She is a pilates instructor who creates fun, short, at-home pilates workouts and she always has a superb soundtrack. Her personality is so naturally peppy you can’t help but give a little bit extra effort. I would keep gushing, or you could check her out here.
