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 [...]
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 [...]
Getting my daughters ready for school in the morning can be as painful as non-novicaned, tooth pulling. At the age of five, they’re already picky about how they want to look. God help me when they’re twelve.
Just about the only thing we agree on as the a.m. [...]
My friend Claire sent me a text today to let me know she’d sent something to my email. As we’ve been working together on a couple of projects, I expected it to be related.
What was sent, however, were paragraphs so lovingly crafted that I teared up in the car as [...]
Wandering over to Jcrew.com just now, I saw the prettiest, prettiest thing they’ve made in a while; the Rhinestone Ruffled Top in navy (the white is pretty, pretty, too), marked down plus 25%.
Surprised to find all sizes still available, it is too good not to share.
Of course, I finger [...]
I’ve been waiting (and wishing and hoping) for Malia Mills to send me an email, alerting me to their swimsuit sale.
The suits, designed by the amazingly talented Mills (her company launched in 1992), are the most gorgeous shapes and colors, meant to flatter women of varying sizes and forms. The [...]
My plate is full.
Yet despite an overwhelming list of jobs and must do’s, and with classes beginning one week from today, I’ve just now completed an application for yet another position, this one whose paycheck would come from a source outside of my LLC.
With all of this busy busy, otherwise [...]
With the kids gone last night I was free and clear to Internet surf without disruption.
I used my time to unhurriedly search the blogs. I’m busier than ever, so sadly, my blog reading has become last on my list of to dos.
I discovered some new blogs (Franish, found [...]
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.
