I recently fell in love with a watch and sunglasses brand that I came across, MVMT. I had a rough time picking out just one watch and pair of sunglasses because they had so many trendy minimalist designs.
I wanted my sunglasses to be something really unique and a cute pop of color. I love that you can wear these red sunglasses year round. They obviously look great in the summer, but the red will look festive this holiday season. Sunglasses are just as important in the winter. That white snow and bright sun can be blinding here in the Midwest.
MVMT has the most charming gold and rose gold watches but I decided to go with a gunmetal watch, featuring a marble face, because I wear a lot of black clothes and silver jewelry.
The best thing is both my watch and sunglasses are incredible quality. If I’m going to be wearing something everyday, I want it to be durable and comfy. Not only does MVMT have great quality products, but I also love their mission: “to inspire you to live life on your own terms”. They have a campaign called #jointhemvmt. Many creators share what moves them on their page. If you are wanting to see what this company is all about and #jointhemvmt, use code: “shanialexis15” to receive $15 off your purchase.
I want to share with you what currently moves me. I came across a poem a few months ago that helps get me moving every day.
“A love note to my body:
first of all, I want to say
for the heart you kept beating
even when it was broken
for every answer you gave me in my gut
for loving me back
even when I didn’t know how to love you
for every time you recovered when I pushed you past our limits
for waking up.” – Cleo Wade
This poem changed my perspective on my body. Most times when I thought of my body, the first image that came to mind was how I look naked in front of the mirror, with all of my insecurities running through my head. I realized I should really be thinking about how often my body kept going, even in times when I was mentally broken, for how my body wakes up every morning, even when it is the last thing I want to do, and how my body is healthy and moving every day. What moves you?
