favorite finds.

I've been doing some shopping lately to update my closet on some essentials that are much needed. While I've sang my blessings of the Old Navy Rockstar jeans for years, at 28, I felt my closet needed some more mature pieces (aka ones that cost a lot more and would withstand the test of time).

These Frame jeans from Nordstrom are the casual Saturday jean equivalent to the perfect black pants. I might add that they look way better in person than per this photograph. At 5'9" they hit me perfectly below my ankle. Let's also note the 40% OFF price tag down from $239 to $143 - score! 

 

blanket. scarf.

I live in this blanket scarf. It's $30 and goes with literally everything in my closet. It also provides a shield from the bone chilling winter in Minnesota. A few weeks ago the temperature, not the windchill, was -15! My down jacket has a huge fur collar which helps, but I definitely pull out the babushka card and wrap myself like a little Russian doll.  Side note: You have totally seen this scarf on every Tom, Dick and Harry. That doesn't mean you can't love it and make it uniquely your own!

home for the holidays.

Untitled #162


This holiday season I have been all about keeping my holiday decor neural. Nearly everything I've picked up has been silver, gold, tan or white. Daring I know; however, it suits our home perfectly and will never go out of style. Above are some pieces that I find to be absolutely divine. Especially the gold striped wrapping paper and antler coat rack - it doesn't get anymore festive than that! I hope you are your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of blessings, good food and great wine! We surely did at the Grimm household in Minnesota! 

the wet brush.

If a Kardashian or Jenner is throwing a product up on Social Media the general public will roll their eyes. To each their own I say. While Kim may not be your cup of tea, there is something to be said for Kendall. The girl is taking the fashion, and now beauty, world by storm. I can hear you from there, "Where are you going with this Molly?" My answer: to introduce you to something that costs less than $10 and will change the way you take care of that unruly mane of yours. Kendall posted this photo on her Instagram, before Kim's assets broke it the internet; however, it has since been removed.

 

 

My amazing hair stylist, Paige, told me I couldn't live without The Wet Brush a few months ago. If you have long hair, extensions or it's just naturally hard to detangle this little tool will become your new best friend. I bought mine from the salon I go to, but it's available at a ton of places. Target even has it online! I love The Wet Brush because it detangles my hair in a gentle and safe manner. In other words, I'm not ripping out knots of hair or damaging my thin and fragile follicles. Next up on my brush list is The Shine Brush. Because what girl doesn't want shinier hair? I think it would make a great stocking stuffer for your beauty obsessed bestie! 

Here are the details from The Wet Brush website: 

The Wet Brush's Intelliflex™ bristles are super thin, strong and flexible. These bristles will glide through any hair type combing out tangles effortlessly. The bristles’ flexibility enables protective and pain-free detangling while the SofTips™ on the very top of the bristles massage the scalp to stimulate circulation at the follicle. They are firm enough to comb through knots, yet flexible enough to be gentle on the scalp. Our IntelliFlex™ bristles bounce back to their original form after each stroke eliminating all the hair breakage and pain that used to be associated with brushing your hair. The Wet Brush can be used on wet or dry hair and works on extensions and wigs.
