A Day in Molly’s Life:
5:15am-5:35am – Wake Up; “I put my cell phone alarm on loud and it has to be across the room from me to make sure I actually get out of bed to turn it off. Get my gym clothes on. Brush my teeth quick and have some multivitamins – Vitafusion Multivites Gummy Vitamins and allergy pills because I get sinus infections at the drop of a hat.”
5:40am-6:30am – “Go down to the gym in my building and start to wake up by turning the speed up on the treadmill.”
6:30am-7:00am – “Shower and get dressed as quickly as I can. I have to lay out my clothes the night before so it speeds up the process a little bit. I usually wear a suit or a dress everyday. Not many ways to make a suit look “cute” and could never quite figure out how the J. Crew models made it look so fashionable in the catalogues.”
Products: “I love any and all product and I usually have a lot of things in my rotation but my most recent obsession is my Clarisonic that I got for Christmas – I have never had such clear and smooth skin. I usually do it once or twice a day depending on if I have charged it the night before but its my favorite and I would recommend it to everyone! In the shower I use Biolage shampoo and conditioner but I like to buy small bottles because I like switching up the brand. In my opinion the best body wash is Aveeno body wash in “calming lavender”. Neutrogena naturals fresh cleaning and make up remover (in the morning) and Trish McEvoy face wash (at night). Also swear by Ole Henriksen “Ultimate Eye Lift Eye Gel Roll on“, Ole Henriksen, “Truth Serum” and Origins “A Perfect World“. I switch up my body cream daily, but some of my favorites are: Laura Mercier in “Fresh Fig“, Clarins “Moisture Rich Body Lotion“.
7:05am – “Head out the door to grab the 1 Train to the 2 Train and then either the PATH to Exchange Place or the Ferry from World Financial Center to Paula’s Hook. I’ve been taking the ferry lately because its been such a nice way to start the day on a boat. Usually grab an iced coffee at a place along the way and maybe a veggie drink if I really need to wake up.”
8:00am – “Sit down at my desk – we don’t have assigned seats at work so I try to switch it up and pick a new seat every day.”
8:00am-8:25am – “I eat breakfast at my desk – usually a yogurt from home and I check emails.”
8:30am-9:30am – Internal Meeting
9:30am-10:30am – Check emails
11:00am-12:00pm – “Jump back on the ferry to Manhattan for a meeting at one of our properties to discuss marketing and PR opportunities.”
12:30pm – “Head back to Jersey City and pick a new seat again…”
12:45pm-1:00pm – “Go down to the cafeteria and grab a salad and go back up and eat at my desk.”
1:00pm-6:30/7:00pm – “Respond to emails and usually have a couple smaller internal meetings or conference calls.”
7:00pm – “Head home and pick up something for dinner along the way.”
8:00pm – “Get home eat, watch NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams”
9:30pm/10:00pm – HIT THE HAY; “Before bed I usually put on Ole Henriksen “Truth Serum” I also like Lancome “Genefique” serum and before bed and in the winter months twice a week I will put on Origins “Drink Up Intensive“, L’Occitane hand cream “Mango flower“, Carmax lip balm, and Ole Henriksen “Ultimate Eye Lift“. In Sephora I typically gravitate to any product that says “lift, tighten or smooth”.” – AMEN SISTER!
Thanks Mol! Now I realize why we are such good friends… product obsessed and Mexican food lovers. Even after living with you for so many years, I still find this interesting! I love your tendency to mix things up. After all, change leads to happiness! (Has anyone seen the Happy Movie? So good!) Even things as little as mixing up moisturizer is something worth trying! Do it peops! Also, I must say, for all of you thinking What?! She’s up at 5:30am everyday to workout? Mol is one of the most disciplined people I have ever known and is definitely a great example for the rest of us! As Ben Franklin puts it, “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a [wo]man healthy, wealthy and wise.” I need to start repeating that one in the morning as I hit snooze…
How was everyone’s weekends?! This is my last week as a 26 year old and I can’t really believe it!
