Hi Duana, Had a couple of babies, been there, done that. Two healthy boys, Alexander Vladimir and Walter William. Never got to use any of my awesome girls names. Odette, Analise, Andi, Ursula and Karmen. Now that we are done with kids, we are getting a dog. A female dog. And my family will not let me use any of these names. Full Article

Duana, We're expecting our second girl in late August. My husband is Hispanic and we named our first daughter Paloma, partly because I loved the sound of it and partly to honor her Latina heritage. The problem is we have no idea what to name our second daughter. We want something that sounds good with Paloma but a lot of the Spanish names we've found either sound too similar or would be a mouthful on the playground. Full Article

A chambray shirt, tight gym pants, a backpack, and heels… Very few people can make it all work together like that. Rihanna, certainly. Maybe Miley Cyrus. Definitely not Katie Holmes. I do like those Adidas kicks she has on though with her sweats.  Full Article

Hi Duana, I'm not due until around Christmas, and my partner and I are still early in the baby name game (i.e. we're still pretty far apart on our choices). However, we have started thinking a lot about what the baby is going to call the grandparents. My partner's parents already have grandkids so we'll probably stick with the titles they use (nan and granddad), but this will be the first grandchild for my parents. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I'm training for my first 10km! I have been stop-start about trying to get fit for years, I am usually good for two-three weeks, then get lazy again. I also get pains in my lower legs, particularly the outside of my calf, which is a disincentive to go out and run. This time however, I've told people I'm doing it, so there's no backing out now! I have been using the Nike Training app (which is great!), however when I go running I usually have to stop and stretch my lower leg muscles again after 1-2km. Full Article

Hi Duana! Please help! My sister's first child (a boy) is due in early August and she wanted me to write to you because they are not even close to finding a name! We are Persian and both my sister and I and my two daughters have flower names (in Persian and English). However, for a boy, all we came up with is Forest. Full Article
