Hi Duana, I have a unique name: Siobhan. Luckily I live in the UK so most people know how to pronounce it but I grew up in Australia where they didn't. Few can spell it but I've gotten so used to it that I don't mind. I am need of some name-nerd expertise. I'm getting a dog later this year, just need to puppy proof my house first, and decide on a breed. Full Article

Hey Hayley, I have been following this blog for years and you since the beginning. I was so stoked a couple years ago when you got into mountain biking and now skate skiing, two of my faves. The question I have for you is around speed in climbing on a bike and running. I will toot my own downhill horn and say between the up and the down I am way stronger on the down. Full Article

I would totally copy this outfit, item for item, including the backpack, even though I haven’t worn a backpack in years. The way Susan Sarandon is wearing a backpack however makes it seem eternally cool. Much cooler than I’ll ever be and I’m almost 30 years younger. Which is why this outfit does more than just look good. Full Article

I really love this dress. I love the high sweetheart neckline and the black and white print too. But the bow definitely makes it. The shoe choice, though. I totally disagree with it.  Full Article

A footprint print! I never knew I needed a footprint print dress in my life until now! One complaint: this dress has a waist. And I think a footprint print dress is better served in a boxy cut, without a waist, without any seams, so that you can see, full and clear, the footprints stepping across the body. Full Article

The circumstances around the situation are delicate at best, let's just say I have no confirmation if the father wants any involvement in this child's life. With that in mind I feel that naming could go one of two ways. Full Article
