The Girl Who Lost Her Smile

The Girl Who Lost Her Smile

Many of you know me, Miss Molly, as the ever-positive and always optimistic person who embodies joy, encouragement, and hope. That is, after all, why I started #MollysWords. But “Molly’s Words” actually started from sharing my own vulnerable experiences about my life. The real, the raw, the not so pretty trials many of us face, in hopes to let those suffering know that they are not alone and to share that there is always hope.…

Finding The Work-Life Balance You Desire

Finding The Work-Life Balance You Desire

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…

What I Learned After Taking a Social Media Break

What I Learned After Taking a Social Media Break

Meet my friend, social media — the one relationship that manages to push me forward and hold me back at the same time and the one that I have a true love-hate relationship with. You may have noticed my absence of blogging for over a month now. Where have I been? How have I been feeling? Well, I did something I never thought I’d realistically be able to do. I took a break from my good friend social…

You Never Know What Someone is Going Through

You Never Know What Someone is Going Through

I’ve seen it repeatedly in my own life in one of two ways. Either I’m going through tough trials and a friend later finds out the pain I was in, or I’m the one witnessing it in another and think to myself later, “I wish I knew then what I know now.” I remember this vividly happening during a blogging event right after my husband filed for divorce. Clearly, I was devastated and going through…

It’s OK to Not Be OK

It’s OK to Not Be OK

I just spent the last twenty minutes literally staring at my computer screen. You know that post I recently wrote on tips for staying motivated when you lack it? Yeah, that would be me right now needing to read it. Again. In my moments of feeling down and mostly out of it because of a flu bug I caught this week, I managed to pick up my phone. You may have guessed I was browsing Instagram.…

7 Tips On Staying Motivated

7 Tips On Staying Motivated

We’ve all been there. You have something that needs to get done and you just don’t feel motivated. You think to yourself, “It’ll come to me, right?” And then it doesn’t. Recently, I have become self-employed, and to be honest, it’s harder than I ever expected it would be. As I’ve discovered ways to daily pursue my goals and overcome the challenges of working for myself, I have had to quickly learn how to tackle…

Ways to Show More Gratitude and Kindness

Ways to Show More Gratitude and Kindness

As we approach a season of giving, I can’t help but notice the power behind this positive way of living. It provokes the question, “What if we treated each other with the same generosity and kindness all year long?” I’ll admit that many who give monetarily may not be able to afford this way of giving all the time. But consider this more of a continuous attitude and possibly a new way of living. It…

5 Ways to Practice Gratitude All Year Long

5 Ways to Practice Gratitude All Year Long

As I reflect on this past year, my heart is overwhelmed with gratitude. To be honest, this has been the hardest year of my life with so many changes happening at once. Anxiety, depression, health issues, divorce, new job, new income, and a new housing situation have all come together in one whirlwind and brought my year with many struggles that I don’t think anyone should endure at once. That alone is overwhelming, but instead of…

7 Ways to Keep Smiling No Matter What

7 Ways to Keep Smiling No Matter What

I say it, you read it each time, but is it really possible to “keep smiling” through all the trials that life throws at you? If you’ve been following me for a while, you know my signature phrase is “keep smiling,” but you may not know why I chose it or what it really means to me. Ever since I was five years old and in ballet class, my bubbly personality gave me the nickname…

Walking on Clouds Despite Life’s Circumstances

Walking on Clouds Despite Life’s Circumstances

The verdict is in and I plead guilty: I’m addicted to wearing heels. I know it’s not the best thing for my feet, but you can likely find me walking around in heels any day of the week. Unless I’m wearing some boots and hiking in the lush green mountains of the Pacific Northwest (more on that story later) I am a high-heels kind of girl! Although it’s true I love wearing heels, they aren’t always…

What to Do When You Are Overwhelmed With Regret

What to Do When You Are Overwhelmed With Regret

I woke up this morning heart sick. I made a mistake and couldn’t get over how badly I regretted it. We’ve all been there. Maybe you’re there now. You go through an experience, make a mistake, and deeply regret your actions. I am a deep thinker, a self-reflector, and diehard analyzer. This means after I’ve made a mistake I analyze every single detail about what just occurred. I focus on the details, the facts, the…

21 Things Fashion Bloggers Really Do

21 Things Fashion Bloggers Really Do

Often I get asked, “What is it you really do as a fashion blogger?” What’s more, it’s hard for many to believe it’s a full-time job. I get called a model quite often, and yes, while I am that, I am so much more. I am a photographer, stylist, personal shopper, researcher, social media manager, bookkeeper, negotiator, coordinator, “tech geek”, an artist, planner, an author, a CEO and a business-woman. An artist and a planner…

It has become more prevalent than ever for bloggers to show true authenticity. Not only are bloggers working on behalf of the brands they represent, they are speaking to an audience that trusts them. As an online influencer, I am trusted to share only what I love. I am trusted to always be honest. Above all, I am trusted to be authentic in everything I do and say. Easier said than done at times, but…

How to Network as an Introvert

How to Network as an Introvert

Something not many people know about me — I’m an introvert. Yes, I said it! I am much more energized from spending time alone. It does not mean I’m not social, however! I love people and attending social events, but when I get home from them I am drained. Completely. At times, the anxiety I get from knowing how exhausting it’s going to be has kept me from going to events. Surprisingly, many do not…

How to Overcome Perfectionism and Accept Your Flaws

How to Overcome Perfectionism and Accept Your Flaws

Inside of me lies this inherent desire to excel — furthermore, a desire to be perfect. From early on I found great satisfaction in my efforts to achieve perfectionism. It fueled my early achievements and future goals for myself in such a way that I took pride in my work and found fulfillment in how others perceived me. At some point along my journey, I let this unrelenting desire to be perfect begin to control my thoughts, desires,…
