Freeing up Time - Step by Step Guide

12 years ago I was a single mom working one full time and two part time jobs. My gorgeous toddler was in part time daycare. Every minute of my life was either mommy-time or work-time, but there just didn't seem to be enough minutes to go around. I vividly remember one night when my two-year-old hadn't fallen asleep despite countless good night stories. It was 9pm and he was happy and bubbly. I saw my evening schedule fly out of the window and broke down in tears. Something had to change. While we cannot create more time, we can make...

Focus on Running

Study upon study shows that running helps us live longer, stay healthier, and elevates our mood. It makes both our muscles and our bones stronger, and it can be done without much scheduling or special equipment. What's not to love? Starting to run can be the deal breaker for many. Those first sessions where your legs feel like heavy logs, and you gasp for air while being overtaken by walkers can feel quite demoralising. But hang in there! It does get better, fast. Walk-run-walk programs are readily available as podcasts and apps. They let you start from zero and push you towards...

Body Positive Active Wear

What is Body Positive? Is Mollyhopp a Plus Size brand? Mollyhopp was born from my own need of cute, high quality, running and yoga clothes in sizes beyond Nike’s and Lululemon’s ranges. It was as simple as that. To me, that journey started by googling “plus size running pants,” so naturally I thought that was what we were. Almost a year later, we have launched our first line (of AMAZING clothes and accessories), and we notice that the word plus size doesn’t really fit. For starters, our first collection start with US size 8; the average American woman is a size 16. So we asked ourselves: should...

It’s only a matter of days now! Our merchandise has arrived in Singapore, the yoga and running pants have endured many hours in the studio, many miles on the tracks and treadmills and many washes, and I’m happy to say that they are the most comfortable workout pants I’ve ever worn. Can’t wait to share the experience with you. Getting here has taken a bit longer than we anticipated. We are about 6 months behind schedule, and approaching the one year mark of Mollyhopp’s first steps. The extra time came from changing suppliers and fine tuning our designs. We now...
