the FRIEND list: molly on the move

After a SUPER weekend in Dallas celebrating Thanksgiving with my family and friends, I made sure to catch up with Molly. And, she made the FRIEND list (no surprise there). We met working as Orientation Leaders at SMU and we’ve stayed great friends ever since. From writing her own blog (which is STRAIGHT FIRE) to her passionate spirit, she’s truly someone you won’t ever forget.

WORLD, meet Molly. Always on the move and the most colorful person you’ll get to know.

1. Molly is driven, POSITIVE and empathetic.

2. Her Instagram is KILLER. I asked if she would share some of her editing tips and she spilled some of her secrets!!! She always uses A Color Story and uses that Clear filter in  the Airy filter pack.

3. While she runs a lot of marathons, she’s also a book lover. SO what books does Molly recommend? In a Dark, Dark Wood by Ruth Ware, Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty, and The Help by Kathryn Stockett.


4. The ALBUM that makes her feel all the feels is The Heat by NEEDTOBREATHE.

5. Her ULTIMATE favorite coffee spot is Never Coffee in Portland. You’ll find her always ordering a hot chocolate. I forgot to ask if she added S’mores…but who doesn’t?!

6. Her life was forever changed when she ate at God’s Restaurant in Athens, Greece.

7. Molly’s Biggest DREAM is to be a full-time travel and food blogger. #MollyTakesOverTheWorld

8. If she could live anywhere in the ENTIRE WORLD, she would be based out of Copenhagen. I say based, because she’s ALWAYS traveling and adding more things to my travel bucket list.

9. Words of Wisdom from Molly: “Don’t care what other people think” and “Love unconditionally.” I feel like both, need a big hug emoji to follow after 🤗

10. Where’s MOLLY ON THE MOVE to next?! Arizona, New Orleans, Alabama and Orlando.Basically, I’m already feeling the FOMO.

the FRIEND list: tiny miss tyler

The NEW YORK hustle is alive and well. New days, new places, lots of new coffee spots, and a BRAND NEW kind of list. I give you the FRIEND list. OR a super fast interview I did with one of my blogger friends which I then made into another list. Our friendship began at the Wild Detectives in Dallas and we ended up in the same city post-grad after four killer years at SMU.

WORLD, I introduce you to TYLER in case you haven’t met her yet…

1. She’s WITTY, wee, and ENTHUSIASTIC.

2. Tyler is a “dog hoe” aka she’s all about that Snapchat filter where your face becomes a dog.

3. The BEST TV SHOW OF ALL TIME according to Tyler is Game of Thrones ( 😏 she must have read the TV list). Her runner-up: Parks & Recreation.


4. The ALBUM that pulls on her heart strings and makes her feel all the feels is a tie between Passenger’s All the Little Lights and Ed Sheeran’s XAnything by Kodaline is also a Tyler jam.

5. TYLER’s ultimate coffee spot is Royal Blue in Highland Park Village. *NO WONDER since they brew STUMPTOWN *

6. Her life recently changed when she had the Chateaubriand Steak for 2 at Keens Steakhouse.


7. When I asked Tyler what was her biggest dream, Tyler responded “I’d like to own a boat.” AHOY MISS TYLER, AHOY.

8. She also dreams of living back and forth between New York and Paris. #goals

9. Tyler’s ADVICE for life: “Don’t stop doing something because you don’t think it’s cool.”

10. The motivation behind her blog, Tiny Miss Tyler…“I do it because I like it. AND I love taking photos of my coffee.” Followed by a few giggles of course.

She’s constantly covered in coffee and crumbs. Catch up with Tyler at
