Cabo Pool Views

Recently, Irek and I spent a few days in Mexico at Hotel Marquis Los Cabos. It’s situated in the most beautiful location, with gorgeous, sweeping views of the coast. At night time, we left our balcony door wide open so we could hear the waves crashing aggressively, and with intention against the shoreline of the Pacific. The time will soon come where I’ll fall asleep to the sound of the waves breaking every night… and that for me, will be ultimate joy. I had some truly beautiful moments at Hotel Marquis, walking along the shore all alone, not a soul in sight. There is something to be said about the energy you feel when you’re close to the ocean. It’s electric really, but only if you allow it to wash over you. I feel most vulnerable when I’m walking alone along the coast, but vulnerable in the best way possible. It’s good for the soul and more healing than any medicine you could ever be prescribed. Thank you so much to Hotel Marquis for hosting …

One&Only Palmilla, Los Cabos

Over the past couple of years, Irek and I have traveled a fair bit, and have had the pleasure of visiting many beautiful hotels around the world. Most recently, we spent a few magical nights at One&Only Palmilla in Los Cabos, Mexico. We’ve been to Mexico a few times now, but never to the Pacific side, only the Caribbean, so we really didn’t know what to expect. To say that Cabo took our breath away would be an understatement; it’s truly something else. The first night we arrived, we were both speechless and fully prepared to soak in every moment of our time at One&Only. This hotel is without a doubt the most beautiful I’ve ever visited. Not only is it aesthetically beautiful, but it also has a very intimate, romantic vibe (1200 candles are lit every night all around the property!). It’s located on The Baja Peninsula, and has views of both the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. The hotel was built in 1956 by Don Abelardo Rodriguez, the son of the president, and started out …

My Top 3 Asanas for Stress Relief

We live in a very fast-paced, somewhat chaotic world… it’s so easy to become overwhelmed, stressed out, anxious, etc. The key is recognizing when you’re in these negative states and neutralizing them as quickly and calmly as possible. Therefore, I thought it may be helpful to share with you my top 3 asanas for stress relief. If I ever feel like I can’t catch my breath,  these are my go-to postures. I spend anywhere from 5 – 15 minutes in them. Puppy Pose The first posture is called Puppy Pose. Puppy is a great stretch for the shoulders and spine. Personally, when I’m in this pose I feel an overwhelming sense of surrender to the posture; this gives me the ability to let go of any tension or stress I may be carrying. If you’re a beginner, this posture may actually feel quite intense on the shoulders, so take it slow and only go as far as feels good. Savasana (with legs up the wall) The ultimate relaxation posture a.k.a. just lay there and do nothing. Stay in Savasana a minimum of …

We’re all Connected

It’s crazy to think that most of us go through our lives feeling totally disconnected and disempowered. We believe that life is just happening to us, and all we can do is react… But the truth is, we are all connected; connected to each other, to the planet, and to the endless, infinite energies that exist within this incredible universe. Once you’re able to break through and tap into this infinite energy (divine love if you will), you’ll experience life on a much deeper level… your days will start to have meaning, and purpose. You’ll realize that you are the co-creator of your life and that you have the power. I urge you to take care this year… Meditate and do yoga as much as possible, nourish yourself with plant-based foods, take care of your physical body, and most importantly, treat others with kindness and compassion (including our animal friends). Remember that you can manifest anything you want… we all can; we’re all connected. Namaste, Molly xx Don’t forget to sign up for #TheNamasteChallenge with me! Head to …

Infinite Prosperity Ball + Yacht 2016

Seeing as this will be my very last post of 2016, I thought it fitting to share some photos from The Infinite Prosperity Ball + Yacht 2016… We met some truly incredible people, all on their own individual journeys, conquering fears and becoming the best versions of themselves they possibly can. Some think Infinite Prosperity is solely a trading education company… but it’s not, it’s so much more than that. It’s a movement and it’s powerful. Amy and Lewis cultivated the most inspiring community of entrepreneurs, traders, dreamers, believers, and the list goes on… I’m honoured and humbled to be surrounded by so many extraordinary individuals. Thank you so much to everyone who made our experience in Australia so memorable. Irek and I are so excited for next year! Lastly, I just wanted to say thank you so much to everyone who visited and supported my blog this year… It’s been an amazing 9 months, and I really hope you’ve enjoyed the content. Can’t wait to share more of my journey in 2017 with you. Happy new year! Lots of love 🙂 Cheers, Molly xx …

Gold Coast, Australia

Irek and I arrived home from Australia a couple weeks ago, and yes, we are missing the heat badly. When we landed in VanCity, it was a ‘huge’ blizzard (by Vancouver standards). And since, the snow has stayed! It’s the first time in 3.5 years that we’ve actually had snow on the ground for longer than a day. It’s beautiful really… but Irek and I are definitely more suited to warmer climates (a move is definitely in our future). That being said, the purpose of our trip to Australia was to attend the year-end Infinite Prosperity Ball + Yacht 2016. It was a magical time and I’ll be dedicating an entire blog post to those events within the next week or so. But for now, I wanted to share some shots we took during our time on the Gold Coast. We stayed in a beautiful home with some truly incredible people who inspire me in so many different ways (Amy Sangster, Lewis Mocker, Robyn Louise, Irek Piekarski and everyone’s favourite person, Carlo!). Thanks to all of you for making our time …

Whole Hearted Eating

When I was in Australia a couple weeks ago, my beautiful friend and published Author, Robyn Louise, cooked me the most amazing meal. Her ‘Mushroom, Kale and Lentil Chowder’ was to die for… and her satay sauce? Out of this world! She is one talented lady who I’m proud to call one of my closest friends. Our paths first crossed in Bali two years ago, and since then, we’ve developed a strong bond full of love and support. She inspires me everyday and I’m truly honoured to be going through this amazing journey of life with her. She is one of the kindest, most loving people I have ever met… If you don’t already know her, check out her Instagram page for more. Earlier this year, Robyn released her first book titled “80 Things That Changed my Life” which is full of little tips and tricks to help you lead a happier, healthier and more fulfilled life. She then went on to release her second book- this time a full on cookbook inclusive of over 50 recipes! The …

Bali Yoga Snaps

My most inspired yoga sessions happen when I’m abroad. I believe it has a lot to do with the fact that I’m in a constant state of gratitude and appreciation. That state naturally lends itself to all aspects of life becoming brighter and more colourful. However, the Bali heat definitely challenged me. I forgot how hot and humid it was and had to force myself to push through each session. I’m grateful for the experience though, because your practice will never reach higher levels until you put yourself out there, and test your own limits. I hope you enjoy these yoga shots and perhaps they will inspire you to continue practicing and break through your own barriers, whether they be mental or physical.

The Mulia Resort Bali

A Love Letter to The Mulia Resort, Bali

I fell head over heels in love with The Mulia Resort in Nusa Dua, Bali. It will now be the standard to which I hold every hotel we visit in the future. The Mulia took into account every little detail and transformed our Bali experience to a whole other level… It was pure magic. The Grounds; The thing about Bali is that everywhere you look is more beautiful than the next. This most definitely rings true when thinking back to our time at The Mulia Resort. The decor was luxurious and extravagant and the grounds themselves were like nothing we’ve ever seen. The Mulia has won multiple awards in the past (including #1 beach resort in the world in 2014 – see here for full list of awards). It’s most definitely worthy of taking up some space on your vision boards… Accommodations; Our room at The Mulia was gorgeous. I loved the colour scheme and design; it really created a feeling of serenity and warmth. The first night we arrived the weather wasn’t in our favour, but I’m actually glad for that …

The Westin Resort, Bali

Last week I was invited to The Westin Resort Nusa Dua Bali to participate in the most beautiful yoga event. The event was in support of UNICEF and was focused on raising money to support children in Indonesia, enabling them access to clean drinking water. The session was led by Wellness Specialist, Jitendra Pokhriyal, who I thought did an incredible job in bringing over 200 participants to a peaceful and loving state. It was an honour to participate in the event and meet so many lovely individuals. Once the yoga event was over, Irek and I spent a couple days exploring the area and seeing what Nusa Dua has to offer. The beaches are absolutely stunning and there is a beautiful walking path right in front of The Westin that stretches quite far- it was perfect for a morning jog. We also were able to experience a couples massage at The Heavenly Spa (which was exactly what we needed after 26 hours of travel time to Bali)! The massages were truly lovely- Irek and I both left feeling super refreshed and rejuvenated. The highlight …
