Hey Duana, My husband and I are expecting our first child, a boy, the first week in March. And we had a name picked out we both loved - Rex. It was familiar without being popular, I think it is cute for a little boy and handsome for an adult. I like the sound of it, and its succinctness. It has loose ties to my home state (Louisiana, via Mardi Gras), and I had even gotten over the dog thing. Full Article

Exercising can be intimidating, especially these days when many group classes seem to be more about a popularity contest then a workout. I recently experienced a workout where I was forced to have to sit at the back of the class because I was new and I had to earn my way to the front. Seems a bit counterintuitive if you ask me. Full Article

OF COURSE I love this dress. It’s a bag. It’s a turtleneck that just doesn’t stop. I’m not crazy about the stripes down the side, or the black shoes, but I would wear this so happily. And comfortably.  Full Article

We’ve seen more and more celebrities stepping out in pyjamas as streetwear and on carpets. This suit on Cynthia Erivo has the cut of pyjamas but the print and the brightness of a conventional red carpet outfit. It looks comfortable. And I love that the pants are short. To me the length of these pants actually dress UP the look. Full Article

Hi Duana, I'm writing on behalf of my older brother (actually, my favourite one but don't tell my other siblings). After a very difficult journey that lasted seven long years, my sister-in-law and him are finally expecting a boy! We couldn't be any happier for them. His first name will be Abraham. Full Article

As you guys know by now the health shiz that I’ve been dealing with for the last while has centered around my eyes and because of that I haven’t worn a lick of eye makeup in a few years. I really miss it. I miss my eyeliner, I miss mascara, I miss f-cking eyeshadow.  However, I have been feeling better and it’s been ILIA’s shadow sticks... Full Article

I was teaching a class the other day and we were doing a set with a paper plate and an exercise band and I said to them, “See! This is all you need for a good workout. Something stretchy and something that glides”.  Then one of the participants said, “Yeah, and you to tell us what to do!” I get it, creating fun and easy ways to work out has been my life for the last 10 years which means it comes easy to me. Full Article

Hi Duana. I’m due in March, but I’m such a planner that I know I’m going to be settled on a name long before that. We are all set for a girl’s name, but totally stuck on a boy’s name. What I want is something different but identifiable, somewhat familiar but not at all common, easily spelled but not particularly trendy or of the moment. Full Article

This outfit is all in the details. Most would wear this silver dress without anything underneath. I love that SJP threw it over a sheer turtleneck and put the mismatched cuffs on over top of the sleeves. That’s the kind of style touch that so often sets her apart.  Full Article

Blake Lively at the Michael Kors show today in, obviously, Michael Kors. I’m… not that excited by this dress? I say it like it’s a question because I feel like this is one of those dresses that we’re all supposed to like for the Colour! And the Shape! And the delicate Ruffles! floating along the sides of the skirt. Full Article

Duana Names: Tradition or Trend? Obscurity or Anglicization?

Hi Duana, I have a question about name spelling. I love the Irish name Sadhbh. But I wonder if the traditional spelling might be difficult for most people to understand. I was wondering if the anglicized versions are ok to use? I've seen it spelled Saeve and Sive. I like both of those and I feel like the phonetic spelling will be easier. Full Article
