I’ve met women that feel perfectly fine with packing only the essential when going on a holiday. By this I mean a pair of shorts, maxi dress, and a beach dress, 3 T-shirts, 1 bathing suit, a linen shirt, a cardigan for chilly evenings, a scarf, a pair of flip-flops, a pair of canvas sneakers, a pair of gladiator sandals, sunglasses, and a hat…
I admire these women, I really do. But with all my efforts, I am far from achieving the same performances. I am by far this disciplined, and I am not a hardcore minimalist either. Of course, I can always grab my things and throw them in a mini-suitcase, for a spontaneous vacation, but each time I can’t help myself to add some extra items also.
It is about the pleasure of wearing something in particular, about the joy of having enough clothing pieces to choose from, the emotional safety offered by all the possibilities. But no, I don’t end up stuffing my entire wardrobe in my suitcase, no matter how tempting that might be. Let’s be serious about it! So, trying to make the perfect luggage set up for a vacation, not compromising too much of my favourite clothes, but not dragging an entire closet along, here are a few rules I made in time, which may work in your case as well.
Rule #1: Only pack the clothes you really like!
This might be something that is more than obvious. Still, think about it: didn’t it occur to you to take with you clothes that usually leave you indifferent, on any other day? Some T-shirt, a dress with a faded colour – those clothes that you saved for the “you never know” situations or “just for vacation”. You just put them in the suitcase, hoping that you will wear them on this occasion, at least. But let’s face it, this is not going to happen.
Rule #2: Imagine yourself at the destination
If you are going to spend two weeks at Punta Cana or Tenerife, you don’t have to take a pair of high heel sandals, the coloured blazer, that elegant ruffled dress, an urban bag, hair rollers, or the flat iron. Even if you are afraid that you won’t manage with what you have in the suitcase, missing that “something” that may make your outfit perfect, please, be reasonable. Thinking about the destination will help you make the right choices.
Rule #3: Pick the most versatile pieces
To best use the space in your luggage, select those clothing items that can be reinvented in various ways. Those you can adapt and transform according to the moment of the day, location, occasion, or temperature. Here are some examples:
Rule #4: Pick jewellery, belts, scarves that will fit with most of the clothes you packed.
Rule #5: Organise your luggage
Put everything that has a heavier weight (books, shoes, dressing case) on the bottom of the bag or spread them evenly on the sides.
Instead of an incredibly large dressing case, split the needed products in 2, 3, or 4 smaller cases. One can hold the beach products, one for the cosmetics, one for makeup products, and one for medicines.
Roll your clothes, instead of folding them. To your surprise, they will be less rumpled when they reach the destination. Use as much as possible the empty spaces. Put rolled socks inside sneakers, rolled tops in the corners of the suitcase, a scarf rolled around phone chargers…
Also, you may want to add an extra fordable bag. Again, you can never know…
And last, don’t forget to grab a small plastic bag or sac for the dirty clothes.
All that is left for me to do is to respect with meticulosity the previously mentioned rules. And, of course, to get ready for my vacation to Tenerife!

You guys should definitely take a trip to your local vintage shop or Goodwill- you can really find some gems if you’re patient. I rather spend my time rummaging around at a flea market than wandering aimlessly through a mall, but that’s just me. xo

Thank you so much for all of your kind comments about my cat, Pinot. Your words mean so much to me! Things have been a little weird around my house. I’m used to having a little buddy that hangs around with me while I’m cooking in the kitchen. I didn’t realize how many times a day we checked in with each other until she was gone. It’s pretty crazy how animals become so apart of your everyday routine, you know? I keep looking for her face at the sliding glass door to see if I need to let her in. Going to sleep at night has been a little weird too, since she used to sleep on my pillow and I’d fall asleep to the sound of her purring. The only thing that’s helping me right now is keeping busy. I think I’ve cleaned my kitchen at least 25 times since this weekend. So, anyways THANK YOU. I really appreciate your love and support.
Yesterday I made this Sausage Kale French Bread Pizza situation because I felt like cleaning the kitchen ANOTHER time. Tuesday was a major errand running day (with Cooper! who had school off! Ahhh!) and instead of making another pit stop to pick up individual french bread rolls (we already went to the Post Office/Oil Change & Trader Joe’s), I decided to use a whole batard I picked up at the store. Yeah buddy, we went BIG on this recipe. Who says that french bread pizza needs to be on individual rolls?
We brown sausage and then sauté kale. We add red pepper flakes on and a ton of garlic to the mixture. We spread marinara all over our batard then top with the sausage kale mixture and a ton of cheese. Then we get this crunchy/crispy/doughy french bread pizza that’s ridiculously meaty/hearty yet full of kale! Next time I am going to freeze one of the halves and just bake off one because then I won’t eat it a lllllllllllllllll and then future me will be like, “You’re so smart and thoughtful, Tracy from the past.” I will also make a section just for Cooper who picked EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF KALE off of his pieces. Kids, man.
Let’s gather our ingredients.
Garlic sliced thin!
Sausage cooked with olive oil. Bread sliced in half.
Followed by garlic & red pepper flake addition.
A little sprinkle of cheese.
Followed by sausage and CHEEEEEEEESE.
Look at these two lovebirds.
Get a room, you two!
They took a nice trip to the oven. No chaperone was involved.
Pretty much my teenage dream.
We enjoy. We have no leftovers. Dangit!

Sausage Kale French Bread PizzaNote: There is a print link embedded within this post, please visit this post to print it.
- 1 large loaf French bread, sliced in half
- 2 cups marinara sauce
- 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
- 1 1lb. Italian sausage, casings removed
- 5-6 cups chopped Tuscan kale
- 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2 cups shredded mozzarella
- 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan
Preheat oven to 400F
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the sausage, breaking up into smaller pieces with a wooden spoon, until sausage starts to brown, about 4-5 minutes. Add kale and continue to cook until kale has softened, about 4 minutes. Season with salt & pepper and stir in garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook for another 1-2 minutes.
Place french bread halves on baking sheet. Divide marinara sauce evenly between two halves. Sprinkle tops with 1/2 cup mozzarella. Add the sausage kale mixture onto the bread, followed by the remaining cheese. Sprinkle with Parmesan and place in the oven for 10-15 minutes, or until bread is golden and cheese is melted and slightly brown. Transfer bread to a cutting board and cut into thick slices to serve.

This is not Crossfit. This is not Soulcycle. Hell, this isn't really a workout—or at least not a strenuous one. Because we've long been supporters of the less-is-more fitness category, we figured there had to be a way to incorporate some movement into a standard morning routine without requiring a trip to the gym. So we created one! Think of it more like active multitasking that's easy enough to do immediately upon waking up, developed with the help of Traci Copeland (title: Nike Master Trainer). Literally anyone—the running haters, the nothing-but-Modelfit crew, the Pilates reformer converts—can do this and actually enjoy it. Cute pajamas help. Here's how to start:
Traci says: "Getting out of bed, the thing that tends to be the most tight are our hip flexors. That’s the thing that allows us to walk and run, so doing things like knee hugs help warm them up right away. Hugging one knee at a time, you can go for 30 seconds each side 2-3 times to wake up your legs."
No, don't get up yet—do a couple of quick crunches first. Bed crunches won't get you a six pack, but you do get points for engaging your core first thing.
Leg lifts suck less when your mattress is supporting you.
Traci says: "Your quads, glutes and hamstrings are also going to be pretty tight, so a good thing to do is wake up those core muscle groups. The way you can do that is by thinking about getting out of your bed and standing up and doing that 5 times. It’s like a chair pose, but assisted."
For a bit of real fitness, here come the tricep dips. "Do 10 or 15 of these on an incline, using your bed—now you're waking up the upper body."
Instagram break! Scroll while practicing your wall sits.
For anyone who wears heels or is actively avoiding their barre class, calf raises make great multitasking. Start brushing your teeth and you've got two minutes of these.
Hydrate while balancing on one leg, hitting your core, your glutes, and your brain (it takes some concentration). Traci also recommends a more strenuous version: "You stand and balance on one leg and spell your name with your foot for ankle mobility. If you want something to wake up your core, you can lift your leg a little bit higher and go through the alphabet. Do that on both sides."
Job well done. Get some coffee, go to work, or get back in bed. At least you've already gotten something done.
Keep going! Read up on ITG's guide to low-impact ballet exercises for better posture here.
