Welcome. I’m Sarah, a veritable prodigy in the fields of list-making and lip gloss color recognition. I’m a little (lot) Type A, but make a consistent effort to live life as a B+. I currently live by the beach in Southern California with my picky interior designer husband, precocious 6-year-old son and (sometimes) sweet 2-year-old daughter. Never a dull moment around here, truly.
I started this blog in 2005 as a newlywed career girl, and over the past eight years, birthed two kiddos, quit my job to stay at home with said kiddos, and then embarked on an entirely new career as a professional blogger and freelance writer. Now, if you would have told me in 2005 that my musings on hair and beauty at this blog would lead me to becoming a Pantene Girl and televised “beauty expert,” I would have dissolved into a fit of hysterical laughter and/or begged you to become my personal psychic and life coach. Yet, it happened. (The internet is a virtual land of tremendous opportunity! And utter weirdness! But mostly tremendous opportunity!)
When I’m not writing, I am addicted to reading instruction manuals, browsing fonts, drinking hoppy beers, willing myself to create something crafty with wool felt, shopping online, staring at the color of grass, playing Scrabble, and yes, pondering hair.
My own personal hell would involve talking on the phone while surrounded by cats with The Carpenters playing in the background. Holy nightmares.
Every week, you can find me dishing up beauty at Babble, discussing the “joys” of motherhood on the video series Mama Said, and sharing all sorts of lifestyle advice and tutorials at Style United. Feel free to drop me a line at sarah(at)whoorl(dot)com.
