Spotted in the Street: Meet Mainely Mara (say that five times fast)

If you need to know where to get a good cut for short hair, the best facial for dry skin, a pilates class for beginners or the answer to any other beauty or wellness question, simply send a tweet to Mara Higgins, the found of Mainely Mara, Portland’s best resource for deals and discounts at local boutiques and spas.

I ran into Mara as she was headed to source out some new deals (lucky us) fresh from a haircut at Head Games. Mara is one of those women that looks put together whenever you see her. I’ve bumped into her everywhere from downtown Portland to the aisles at Target and trust me, girl always looks good.

Behold the power of a good coat. Mara’s picked up on all the key winter trends with this topper, from it’s nubby gray color to bundled funnel-neck collar. Her gray leather boots are that achingly perfect just-over-the-knee height and were a steal from Piperlime. Now if you don’t sign up for deals from Mainely Mara yet, you can sign up here and don’t delay. (Right now you can score an $18 haircut from Aphrodite Salon! Shhh…)
