Happy New Year!

2016 is here and I can hardly believe it. This month marks my sixth year of having my blog which is wild! Six years ago I was sitting on my couch watching TV and signed up for a blog on Blogger. I’ve since moved to WordPress which has been awesome and I’ve had the opportunity to work on a lot of fun projects, travel, and share my passion for all things beauty, lifestyle and fashion. In today’s post I thought I would share some favorite photos from 2015 and talk a bit about my year.

A picture from the weekend wearing my new Calvin Klein coat my sister got me for Christmas!

As I look back on the last year, I close my eyes and pretend that Hugh Grant is narrating the review of my year along to some sort of soft pretty music playing in the background. “Mollie’s year was a good one, filled with many ordinary moments that made her happy, difficult challenges that she found a way to overcome and she continued to work on becoming fluent in sarcasm.” Something like that anyway. In all seriousness 2015 was a happy year for me, I traveled a lot, got to see my brother graduate high school and move away to college, I visited Mexico, Portland, Iowa, Minnesota, LA, Walla Walla, Austin, TX and San Francisco, celebrated my Labradoodle Amelia’s 8th birthday, celebrated love at friend’s weddings, bought my first pair of Valentino Rockstuds and accomplished a lot at work. Oh, and I’ll say that in 2015 I think I bought the most baby clothes and gifts that I’ve ever bought, many of my friends have been welcoming new life into the world. I’ve loved getting to celebrate that! Also baby clothes are just way too cute.

For this new year I’m not really writing down any set resolutions, I’m just going to continue to try and be a good global citizen, eat a little healthier (on 1/4 I started the Whole 30 diet, it’s been tough but I’m excited to share more about that when the 30 days are over), take better care of my skin, get outside more often and make more time for travel and adventure. I’m also excited for new projects coming down the pipeline for my blog, I want to be better about posting more outfit photos and sharing all the beauty products I’m loving and trying.

If you have feedback on what sort of content you’re excited to see from me please let me know!


An outtake from my first shoot with my friend and awesome photographer Jeff Sanchez. All the photos below were taken by him throughout 2015.


I ordered this Topshop dress from Nordstrom online, it’s by far been one of my favorite purchases of 2015.


My sister got me this Rebecca Minkoff bag for Christmas a couple years ago, I use it all the time! The rings I’m wearing are Marrin Costello. To see more photos from this shoot head on over here.
