This week of Thanksgiving has been filled with reminders of the terrible ways that men can behave. It’s such a shame. No new mother believes that she’ll raise a boy to become creepy and rude. Rude and creepy is not the image she has when rubbing her belly awaiting a bundle [...]
I’ve been talking with photographer Heba Salama for years now about scheduling a headshot. I put it off for ages, but when a recent article couldn’t be published with last year’s car selfie, I had no chance but follow through. Making the call was tough for this camera fearing subject. A mixture [...]
Everyone is talking about the it length, the Midi hem, which falls anywhere past the knees, but a good distance above the ankles. The Midi has always been a favorite of mine, ladylike and pretty with a heel, boot, flat or trainer. Just yesterday, Rachel Zoe showed how to style [...]
The best part about getting up and going out on the town (last night) was seeing the girls on parade. Across the board, romantic accessories paired with harder edged pieces made for a sweet look, heavy on love, but don’t mess with my heart or you’ll get the heel.
A feathered [...]
The Beautycounter Kids’ Collection is out, and just in time!
Over here at our house we’re two baths close to being out of The Honest Company’s shampoo and bubbles, and we’ve been patiently waiting for the Kidscounter release (technically not released, but I’ve got connections).
In our [...]
Skinny this. Skinny that. My tendency to hover closer to trend than style was made apparent when my friends and Image consultant, Claire (wrote about her here), came over to help me go through my closet.
“Bootcut,” the nineties staple, was completely missing from my wardrobe.
It’s an interesting piece, my [...]
I spent the weekend in the presence of runners, working the City of Oaks Marathon Expo, where I introduced Beautycounter to the thousands of people walking by.
Runners are a funny group. They come in all shapes and sizes, and run at all lengths and speeds. They like to talk about [...]
Writing about yoga is hard.
Because of the language and personal nature of what happens on the mat, posts and article don’t always have the same kind of reach as your run of the mill exercise blog.
After five months out of commission due to injury, getting back to my mat [...]
My mother doesn’t “love” my hair. She wishes I’d cut it short, because it looks prettiest in a safe, clean, and bouncy bob.
With a lot of long, semi-wavy, thin hair, she’s right. A bob is best.
But it’s so boring, and sophisticated, and even thought I’ve been called both (I’d [...]
The hub for all I do, marthawills.com documents life from a working mom's point of view. When not mothering, I manage the social media needs of small businesses through Wills Media Group, LLC, and write a weekly column for Raleigh's News & Observer online entitled, Are We There Yet? Most recently, my passion for health and wellness led me to become involved as a consultant for Beautycounter, a company that's making a difference by educating about toxins in products, spreading the word via the web.
