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 [...]
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.

Last night I drove an hour and a half to meet the CEO and founder of Beautycounter, the company I became a consultant for in July.

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.
