Everything Molly Packed for her Amangiri Birthday Trip

Written by Alli Forde

Molly Sims knows how to throw a good party. And as the seasoned planner and coveted hostess she is, she knew exactly what she wanted for her birthday this year: to throw her feet up, and let her husband do the planning. Luckily for her, that landed her poolside, surrounded by an obscene amount of scenic beauty. For her latest lap around the sun, they chose Amangiri — because when you want to celebrate, you might as well do it somewhere that looks like a literal screensaver. The alluring spa known for its minimalistic luxury is nestled in the heart of the Utah desert, making it the perfect backdrop for any birthday weekend. 

Turning a year older at Amangiri means two things: serious spa time and acting like you’re into hiking now. As a special surprise for the occasion, Molly’s husband made it a true birthday week by whisking her away on Tuesday leading into her birthday on Saturday, May 25th (aka today). Kudos to him.

The celebrations included a mix of sipping cocktails that matched the sunset, exploring the breathtaking landscape, and the kind of spa sessions that might just rejuvenate and reset you back to factory settings. Now we’re just jealous.  

Curious what made the cut for her desert getaway? Let’s dive into her suitcase. 


The desert is gorgeous, but the arid climate is no joke for your skin. Ever the prepared hostess, she came ready.

Post-Flight Refresh: 

Immediately after landing, Molly reaches for the Ex Pads, her go-to for wiping away travel grime and refreshing the skin. 

Hydration Hero: 

The plane’s dry air is no match for Xtremely Richcream, keeping her skin plump and hydrated.

Daytime Glow: 

For lounging by the pool or exploring the rugged terrain, Molly relied on a cocktail of Ex Pads for a fresh slate, Morning Cocktail for an antioxidant boost, and Skin Glow for protected radiance (SPF included). 

Nighttime Nourishment: 

When the sun dipped, Molly mixed our Xtremely Rich™ Moisturizer with It Cosmetics CC Nude Glow for weightless coverage that heals, while it conceals.

SOS for Skin: 

The Problem Solver was obviously on standby for any sneaky spots that might crash the party.  She says she doesn’t like to pick favorites, but we secretly know this one is hers.

Bags and Bikinis

Accessories were, obviously, non-negotiable.

Bag Lady: 

Her newly monogrammed Large Beach Tote from Poolside embroidered with “Living YSEly” carried the essentials, while Khaite’s Lotus Bag added a touch of sophisticated structure.

Poolside Prêt-à-porter

Choices were crucial. The Johanna Ortiz Iconography Onepiece for a shimmered statement, as well as the SIMKHAI Noa, were perfect for those "add a belt and it’s an outfit" moments.

Even in the wild, wellness isn’t left to the wayside.

Detox Delights: 

Alkalize Detoxifying Greens Powder from Sarah Wragge, because who wants to lose their green streak, even while traveling?

And Restore from SWW for detoxing as well, because as you know, the girl loves a Paloma. 

Mineral Magic:

This Magnesium Glycinate, so that after a day of hiking, she could actually move the next day.

Here’s to many, many more laps around the sun – and looking good while doing it.  Cheers to you, Molly!
