Hi, My husband and I are hoping that we will be the beneficiaries of your name-nerd advice. We are expecting our second little one on August 8, 2015. We’re Asian and we somehow stumbled into a very lucky due-date! We don’t know if Baby #2 is going to be a boy or a girl. Our first child is a little boy who will be close to turning three. Full Article

Probably the best head of blonde hair I’ve ever seen. In person? It’s full and even and natural and you want to touch it, badly. Every blonde in film and television should be going to Diane Sawyer’s colourist.  Full Article

Hi Hayley, About two weeks ago, I gave birth to (for Lainey: spontaneous, no fertility treatments) twin boys totaling about 13 pounds of birth weight, by cesarean section. Prior to my pregnancy, I was very active, running half marathons, doing cardio cross training, playing tennis, and attending Pilates reformer classes. Full Article

Kate Beckinsale at The Mentalists press night in London. I would like to point out that she is NOT in the play. The dress? It’s fine. I’m sure some of you are in love with it. To me it’s not that hard. Kanye West’s wife wears a variation of it every other week. It’s tight and it’s white. Full Article

Hi Duana - The time has come when I need your naming skills!  My husband and I are expecting baby #2, a girl, beginning of July and we're struggling to find a name we both like. We love our first daughter's name - Summer Olivia - it's different but not "weird," and the first name isn't very common. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I'm about a month into my weight loss and health journey. I'm 28, 5'9, and started at 205. I am currently 194. My goal is to get down to 145-150. I have been mainly focusing on cardio (walking, jogging, stair-climbing) and not squats/lunges/anything that targets specific areas. Full Article

Hi Duana, I'm due July 8 with my second girl. My first daughter's name is Quinn and we decided on that name fairly early with little discussion of other names. I'm having a heck of a time coming up with a name for baby #2 and my husband is no help at all. I want a name that "goes" with Quinn (which means that it probably can't be too feminine) but I don't want anything too "out there. Full Article

Dear Duana, I am expecting girl #3 and having trouble settling on a name. Our older daughter is Chora, and our younger is Edith ("Edie"). We want to name our daughter after a female figure she can admire. For us that means someone courageous and whose courage is tied to her faith (for us, Catholic or more broadly Christian). Full Article

This is, like, really old school orange. She’s a model, she can get away with whatever mismatch she wants. But what happens when a regular person with regular length legs – ok, fine, short stubby legs – works these out? Because I think I really like them.  Full Article

Hi Duana, I would really appreciate your advice! Our first boy is due this summer and while my husband and I have agreed on a name, which I suggested and love, I'm having some worries about it. We live in a very ethnically un-diverse community. Most everyone in our town has an English or Irish surname. Full Article
