Hi Duana, I am due with my second child, a baby boy, the end of June. We have a little girl and her name is Grace. My husband and I immediately loved her name so we never had any issues or debates over choosing a name. This time around it has been much different. This will be the first boy in 4 generations of women on my side, so needless to say our families are pretty excited to welcome a baby boy. Full Article

I'm almost always down for a floral print. But this one ... Don't like anything about it. Don't like the dominant colour. Don't like the pattern. Doesn't it feel old? As in out of date? 2005? Also that's a terrible shoe choice.    Full Article

Over the last 9 weeks, I have been leading a group of incredible women towards the goal of the Nike Women’s 15km race in Toronto (click here to see a preview of the course). Although these women had never met prior to our first training run, it became evident very quickly that they all had many things in common. Full Article

I liked all of Taraji P Henson’s outfits at Spike TV’s Guy’s Choice Awards. But mostly, I loved her hair on the red carpet in the white jumpsuit. It’s a halfknot but really a topknot. And strips shaved down the sides. Definitely trying this.  Full Article

Baby #2 is on the way and my husband and I just can’t agree on a name.  We’re having a baby girl and already have a daughter named London Nicole. The last name will be hyphenated and we would love a name with the same feel as London without getting to frilly (no Annabelles, Charlottes or other ‘Disney Princess sounding names’) His picks: 1. Full Article

Maybe it’s not even that pretty. Maybe it’s not that special. Maybe I’m just so relieved to not have to look at her in a sheer, tight, pantyhose Zuhair Murad or Versace cut out dress that I’m rating this a lot higher than it should be rated. But the point is that it’s a welcome, refreshing change. Full Article

I feel like this was something for November. Not just the colour of the dress but also the makeup. As for the style of this Balenciaga, Carey has evidently decided that she's not going to put her pregnancy on display. Skylight ends in two weeks. And then we just won't see her at all.   Full Article

Duana saw this dress before I did and alerted me to it. “It looks like her stomach is falling out.” She’s right. This is terrible. I wish designers would quit trying to invent ways to use pantyhose in their designs.  Full Article

Big ups to her for trying. Because this is not a forgiving dress. It’s basically a tight t-shirt that clings well below the waist. The problem with the material is that you have to keep pulling it down so that it lies flat. As soon as it starts to move, the effect is lost. Fantastic colour on her though. Full Article

Helen Mirren rarely disappoints in style. But this dress might be her best ever. Definitely top 3. And yes, the lace cape totally makes it but really it’s about how majestically she’s wearing it. Which is to say that when she’s wearing it, I’m seeing a woman in her prime, collecting a career honour, and not someone who’s imagining her 4th wedding. Full Article

Duana Names: Surprise Twins are the best twins.

Duana, I am pregnant with twins - a boy and a girl! The pregnancy is a wonderful, wonderful surprise as I was previously told by doctor's it would never happen for me. Believe it or not the time has flown by - my partner and I got married (LOL!) moved houses, renovated and have pretty much changed our lives around to make room for our new babies. Full Article
