The Chic List: Personality Test, Embassy Tours and Rules for Life

What to Do, Eat, Read, Watch and Listen To

The Chic List features the best things to do, eat, read, watch and listen to this spring.

DO

1.    ENNEAGRAM TEST: The Enneagram is a profound and powerful guide to understanding your personality and inner workings. The Enneagram is an ancient personality typing system that identifies Nine Personality Types that are expressed individually and in relationship to others. Unlike Marston’s DiSC Assessment or the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, the Enneagram acts as a unique tool for understanding and explaining human behavior, and the underlying motivations that drive behavior and the gifts we all have for the transformation of non-productive encounters with others.

Want to know your enneagram type? Just take this simple 5-minute enneagram test.

ENNEAGRAM BOOKS:

THE ROAD BACK TO YOU AN ENNEAGRAM JOURNEY TO SELF-DISCOVERY | Ian Morgan Cron and Suzanne Stabile: This book allows you to understand more about each of the Enneagram types. Beginning with changes you can start making today, the wisdom of the Enneagram can help you get on the road that will take you further along into who you really are leading you into places of spiritual discovery you would never have found on your own, and paving the way to the wiser, more compassionate person you want to become.

THE PATH BETWEEN US | Suzanne Stabile: Suzanne Stabile’s new book on the nine Enneagram types and how they behave and experience relationships will guide readers into deeper insight about themselves, their types, and others’ personalities so that they can have healthier, more life-giving relationships.

ENNEAGRAM PODCASTS:

THE ENNEAGRAM JOURNEY PODCAST

THE ROAD BACK TO YOU PODCAST

2.    PASSPORT D.C. EUROPEAN EMBASSY TOUR: The Delegation of the European Union to the United States and the Embassies of 28 EU Member States to the United States will open their doors to the public during the EU Embassies’ Open House Day in Washington, D.C. The day will offer a unique opportunity to experience the country’s cultural heritage and national traditions.

EAT

1.    TRUE ROOTS | Kristen Cavallari shares her collection of clean recipes. Pick this one up if you are looking for easy gluten-free and dairy-free recipes. If you liked Gwyneth Paltrow’s cookbooks, this one is similar.

Recipe Links:

Kristen’s Breakfast Egg Nests

Spinach Artichoke Dip

2.     MAGNOLIA TABLE | Joanna Gaines shares the Gaines family’s favorite recipes as well as ones from their two eateries, Magnolia Table and Silos Baking Co. Recipes include chicken pot pie, white cheddar bisque, fried chicken with sticky poppy seed jam, and chocolate chip cookies. Jo also shares stories and photos about her life.

Recipe Links:

Jo Jo’s Biscuit Recipe

Chocolate Chip Cookies

READ

1.    THE RATIONAL BIBLE | Dennis Prager: Why do so many people think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated? Why do our friends and neighbors dismiss the Bible as irrelevant, irrational, immoral, or all of these things? This explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today’s issues, but completely consistent with rational thought.

The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager’s forty years of teaching the Bible to people of every faith, and no faith. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world and to your life.

2.    MARLON BRUNDO’S DAY IN THE LIFE OF THE VICE PRESIDENT | Charlotte Spence and Karen Pence: This children’s book is written by Vice President Mike Pence‘s daughter, Charlotte, and illustrated by his wife, Karen, and tells the tale of how one cute little BOTUS (Bunny of the United States) experiences White House life. It is well written and beautifully illustrated. Proceeds from the book will go to an art therapy program called Tracy’s Kids and a nonprofit, A21, that’s working to end slavery and human trafficking.

3.    12 RULES FOR LIFE: Jordan Peterson: Jordan Peterson is a psychologist whose writing combines science and common sense. The book covers his twelve rules for life. Peterson believes that the cure for society starts with curing the individual. Peterson’s well-known advice to clean your room is a reflection of the truth that if you can’t even manage the most basic and mundane responsibilities of life, then you have no business dictating to others how to fix society.

WATCH

1.    MY FAIR LADY: My Fair Lady returns to Broadway’s Lincoln Center Theatre. Henry Higgins, an English professor of phonetics, makes a bet that he can transform Eliza Doolittle, a Cockney flower girl, into a lady. The musical is nominated for 10 Tony Awards.

2.    WILD WILD COUNTRY:  Wild Wild Country is a new six-episode Netflix docu-series about a religious cult from the early 80’s. Led by Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh and his personal assistant, Ma Anand Sheela, the movement successfully convinced many thousands of well-educated people to move to the tiny town of Antelope, Oregon, where they attempted to establish a utopian city called Rajneeshpuram. The cult followers clashed with local residents and the government in the process.

3.    TERMINAL: Terminal stars Margo Robbie and Mike Myers so that’s reason enough to go see this one. The story follows two assassins with a sinister mission, a fatally ill teacher, an enigmatic janitor and a waitress with a double life. Murderous consequences unravel as their lives meet at the hands of a criminal mastermind wanting revenge.

My favorite movies so far this year include the following:

I CAN ONLY IMAGINE

BEIRUT

CHAPPAQUIDDICK

LISTEN

1.     MIDLAND | They just won Best New Band at the ACM’s. I love their traditional country sound.

2.    LEON BRIDGES GOOD THING | The highly anticipated follow-up to his hugely successful debut album Coming Home.

If you have some recommendations, I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
