Five Favorites

Five Favorites | Moments With Millie

While I was away, I discovered (and rediscovered) so many wonderful items. Although it’s been a few months, I wanted to share some of those items with you. I will be doing a separate post on my ¬†favorite beauty items. If you know me, then you know I can talk about beauty for days. So I will spare you the really long post. ūüôā Have you rediscovered any oldies but goodies lately?

  1. Denim JacketDenim jackets are a wardrobe staple. They have been around for many years but seem to have been trending in the past few years.¬†Can¬†you believe that I haven’t owned one since I was a kid? I found this one at¬†Forever 21 and I am so happy to be¬†reacquainted with an old friend.
  2. Graphic T-Shirts– I used to have a love-hate relationship with graphic tees. Although I could see their appeal, I thought many of the slogans were¬†cheesy. I found a few simple ones . And now that I have found my preference¬†I just can’t stop wearing them.
  3. Faux Leather Leggings I purchased these leggings years ago however I was really shy to wear them. I traveled quite a bit in the spring and summer months and these leggings were really handy. They did not take up a lot space in my luggage, dressed up any outfit and were very comfortable.
  4. Nike Roshe One- These shoes aren’t new to me or the market but I have been loving them as of late. I have worn them during my recent travels, on casual days, etc. I haven’t been a sneaker wearer since middle school. It’s also nice to be reacquainted with this old friend. I love that I was able to¬†customize my¬†colorway on the Nike site.
  5. Chewing Gum– I know what you are thinking….. chewing gum? Let me explain, I love Chewing Gum- the show. It is a British sitcom available on Netflix. I learned about it in Paris¬†¬†however I didn’t check it out until EvelynFromTheInternets¬†mentioned it in one of her videos. The show is ¬†about a quirky, restricted young lady living in London. The show follows her life of mishaps, funny interactions and life lessons. I love the show but I wouldn’t recommended if you are offended by the sight of bodily fluids.

My In-Flight Skincare Essentials

Good skincare habits don’t stop because you are on vacation. To be honest, I find that I have to work extra hard to keep my skin clear while I am away. We all know what the dry, recycled airplane air can do to our skin. To make matters worse, I tend to break all of the skin care rules while vacationing. I eat terribly, stress out, don’t sleep, forget sunscreen, etc.

I have really been enjoying Caudalie products since trying out their micellar water. You can read my thoughts about it here. I noticed that Sephora has a Favorites Set and thought I would give it a try since I was going on a few trips and all of the products were travel friendly. I must say, this kit is now an essential in my travel bag. Below are my in-flight skin care essentials/routine for long flights.

  1. Wash hands. If not possible, I use hand sanitizer.
  2. Remove contacts.
  3. Brush teeth.
  4. Use Micellar Water all over face to remove makeup and grime.
  5. Return to seat and place sheet mask. Remove after 10-15 minutes. Rub in access product to face and neck.
  6. Spray face with Beauty Elixir. Warning- this product has a strong perfume scent.
  7. Apply Moisturizing Sorbet.
  8. Apply eye cream.
  9. Apply Clarins Instant Light Lip Comfort Oil.
  10. Apply hand lotion and drink water.My In-Flight Skincare Essentials | Moments With Millie

By this time, my seat mates are completely perplexed or annoyed. Either way, I try to smile as much as possible to help alleviate any inconveniences. Initially, I felt a little ridiculous following all of these steps however I don’t think I will stop anytime soon. I find that this routine hel

ps me to relax while combating the airplane’s dry/germy air. When we are nearing the end of the flight, I return to the bathroom to put in contacts, check my appearance, spray perfume, and reapply lip gloss.
