the five


Every month I like to share five things that rocked my world the previous month, I typically share my fives the very first week, but between moving and  travelling I haven’t really been keeping up.

In fact, I don’t recall doing one for June, and for that I apologize, I may share a few more next month to make up for lost times.

Here we go!

1. I’ve voiced on many occasions that I DONT DO diaper bags. Why? Because I’ve never met a diaper bag I liked enough to purchase. Most bags are bulky and quite frankly not my style; all that changed recently thanks to a partnership with Skip Hop which involves their black Forma Diaper Backpack. Neriah uses a few of their ” Meal time” containers and we’re fans of those products. We can add diaper bag to that list. I’ll be dishing about the bag and all its awesomeness in this Fall’s issue of Hey Baby Magazine (Chicago) – along with my baby essentials. The article will also feature advice from a few other Chicago moms. If you’re local, follow me on Twitter to find out when the issue will hit stands!

2. Ever been to Target for diapers, or eggs and walked out with a chair, makeup and everything but what you initially went for? Of course you have. We all have. This video by Buzzfeed pretty much sums up my experiences, every single time I walk into a Target!

3. H&M and these simple and affordable dresses (pictured below) have been giving me life all summer. The simpler the better is my motto. I like for my looks to look and be effortless. If I have to think about it too much, that means I’m trying too hard. These jersey dresses retail for less than twenty dollars at your local store and they’re very forgiving to the post baby body! Get one… or two as I did!


4. Periscope!

Much like Target, Periscope is another thing that is so good it’s bad. The “scope as the cool kids call it, is Snapchat on crack! The app. enables you to connect with folks all over the world in real time. I’ve only shared two broadcast since joining the community, and I’m still trying to get comfortable with the idea of being LIVE to millions of people. But once I get the hang of it , ya’ll better watch out! I’m going to broadcast everyday hahahah. Are you on the scope? Make sure to drop your handle in the comment section so I can be sure to follow you if I don’t already. My handles for all things social are as follow:

Twitter/ Instagram/ Snapchat / Periscope = @milknhonee

Facebook Page = MILK AND HONEE

Pretty simple right?

5. Last but def. not least, I came across this hilarious video on IG and to me it is the funniest thing ever. I seriously watch this once or twice a week for a good chuckle. Now mind you it may not be as funny to some, but if you’re African, you will surely appreciate.


So tell me, what has rocked your world lately? Any cool finds you’d care to share If so, drop ’em below, sharing is caring!

Until next time!

    I’m having the hardest time finding a diaper that I like. I’m not a diaper bag person so I want a bag that functions like a diaper bag but doesn’t look like one, the struggle. That’s such a cute dress! My latest H&M find (that I’m obsessed with) is a navy jumpsuit. I only got to wear it once before my tummy got too round for it. I’ll be rocking that thing all next spring/summer though!
