Two weeks ago, three other Seattle bloggers and I had the wonderful opportunity to escape our little city and head north to Vancouver, Canada. Although it’s only a short three-hour trip for us Seattleites, I had only visited Vancouver once in the past. However, I wasn’t there long enough to discover the hidden gem of Robson Street in the heart of downtown Vancouver. After spending a girls weekend on Robson Street with Molly’s Musings, Sort of Style and Black White And Brunette, I now know why tourists, celebrities, and locals are drawn to this historical street. Think of Robson Street as the Rodeo Drive of Vancouver, with three blocks of amazing shopping and fabulous dining. What more could four fashionistas ask for?! Today I’m giving you our full itinerary with insider’s tips that will hopefully give you some inspiration to plan your next getaway on Robson.
Today is a huge day for me! Two years ago today the name Style Miss Molly was created on Instagram, combining my love for style and inspiring others. I can’t quite officially call it my “blogiversary” yet because that wasn’t started until a month later (we’ll be celebrating that soon with some very special things planned for you). April 18th, 2015 is truly where it all began. On the couch in my living room, as I opened a pair of white pointed-toe pumps in the mail and felt inspired to share my passion. I made a lofty goal of reaching 50,000 followers on Instagram in two years. I reached that goal with merely six days to spare. Talk about cutting in close! As I reflect back on my journey I realize how far I’ve come. I’m excited to share 50 little-known ways to improve your blog, and if you don’t blog read on just to see how much I’ve learned!CONTINUE READING
Once again, I find myself passionate to share more than just fashion. Over my blogging journey, I have been incredibly blessed to work with many incredible brands that curate their collections from the heart and stand up for a greater purpose beyond beautiful clothes. When I find a brand that shares the same vision of creating a community of women who feel empowered to embrace their uniqueness and be who they are meant to be, I am overwhelmed with emotion and gratitude. These are the moments I live for and inspire me to keep doing what I do and sharing what I love. Today I share the brand Iron Lily, whose goal from the very beginning was to make a difference in the world through one woman at a time.
Work, life, repeat. Lately, it seems balance has been that one word I’ve been trying to take to heart. Last month it was mindfulness as I took a break from social media and focused on being present in each moment. This month my word is balance; more specifically, work-life balance. We all know we need it, we all thrive from it, but often everyday life happens and balance can get lost in the midst. The truth is, finding a work-life balance varies from person to person. What one may consider the perfect balance between the two, may be drastically different to someone else. Personally, I believe that’s what makes balance so beautiful. It’s finding that balance in your own soul to where you feel accomplished and happy in all aspects of your life.
Confidence; in its most basic of elements is a combined feeling of trust, belief and certainty. And for 99.9% of humanity, confidence isn’t something that comes naturally. Fortunately, it is something we all have the capacity to gain with the right tools. In whatever area of life you seek that confidence — love, sports, school, work, passions or finances — the tools are fundamentally the same. Today I’m partnering with Capital One to share my fool-proof tools for gaining confidence so that you’re prepared for anything life throws at you!CONTINUE READING
