I’m good at getting myself lost… But sometimes, the best way to find yourself is to get lost.
My name is Molly O’Brien. I earned my degree in journalism from Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and moved to Los Angeles following graduation to pursue a career in lifestyle/travel writing.
I enjoy taking thousands of photos, I’ve had the privilege of living on both coasts in the United States (MA to CA!), and I was lucky enough to learn and study abroad in Barcelona, Spain (yo hablo español, también).
I’ve been writing since I could hold a pencil and moving around as much as possible since I could walk upright. I’ve always had a passion for travel and lifestyle writing. Now, I’m grateful to have the opportunity to freelance write articles for publications like Business Insider, and Travel + Leisure.
This blog featuring San Luis Obispo, along with my current Los Angeles lifestyle blog have continued to give me the opportunity to have a voice and a creative outlet to share the best California (and worldly) eats, drinks, experiences, and travel opportunities.
I still find ways to try to be a “weekend warrior” and live my wanderlust lifestyle when I’m not working at a desk to pay the bills. 😉
