WHAT WOULD RALUCA DO IS A COLLECTION OF ESSAYS, MUSINGS AND ADVICE ON MODERN-DAY MOTHERHOOD BY RALUCA STATE, THE CREATOR OF WHAT WOULD GWYNETH DO.

A new chapter

"And suddenly you know...it's time to start something new and trust the magic of beginnings."

Starting something new isn't new to me. I am a creature of change, of evolution, of anything but habit. When I started What Would Gwyneth Do several years ago, I had no vision for what it would or could become. I wanted to write and I wanted a creative outlet and that space has given me that opportunity, on levels big and small. It's where I first self-published. It was my inroads to writing for wonderful blogs and sites and magazines. It was where I started and built a really cool online community of fellow moms, women and writers (including Gwyneth Paltrow herself who pops in once in a while) who strive for the same principles as I do: quality, inspiration, values, simplicity. It's a space I am proud of and one that will remain active, filled with must-haves and favorites and beautiful people, places and things that I love. 

This space will be different. This will be essays, musings and advice. This will be words from the heart and observations from the every day. This will be stories that I want to share and lessons that I learn along the way. Some will be favorites from the past, most will be new. It will be all me, no Gwyneth, and hopefully many of you who I've met along the way who also trust the magic of beginnings. Who aren't afraid of something new. And who look for quality, inspiration, values and simplicity both online and off. Thank you for joining me and welcome to What Would Raluca Do. 

Timing is everything
