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.

Working Girl | Moments With Millie

I was such a bookworm as a child. However that changed when I went to college. Between attending classes, working numerous jobs and my social life- I had very little time (and/or energy) to read for pleasure. Last year, I decided to get back into reading. Although I managed to complete just a few books, I was happy to be doing something that feeds my mind and soul. Here are some of my current favorite books. What are you must reads?

The Five Love Languages- Gary Chapman

This book was such an easy read. I learned so much about the mindful expression of love. I also learned about the importance of expressing love in my spouse’s love language. The information contained in this book is invaluable. ¬†I love how applicable it is to just about every relationship.

What I Know For Sure- Oprah Winfrey

I am such an Oprah Winfrey fan. I could go on and on about her but I will spare you. This book was another easy read which was perfect for those long, stressful days. It is filled with little gems of wisdom from the her life experiences. I think it makes a great gift or coffee table decor piece.

The Alchemist- Paulo Coelho

I heard many positive things about this book so I decided to finally give it a try. I am so happy I did. The author is such an excellent story teller. His vivid descriptions made me see myself in the protagonist. The story is a great reminder to follow our hearts, pay attention to signs given to us on life’s journey and to pursue our dreams.

I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings- Maya Angelou

I originally read this book in middle school. It is Maya Angelou’s autobiography. I was originally drawn to the book because of the author. However, the title further drew me in. It is one of my favorite books. I love it so much that I re-read it very so often.
