Duana Names: A Million Little Liams…

I am due with my 2nd baby mid-November and the gender is a surprise. I read your baby names column obsessively as I am stuck on both a boy and a girl name.  I do not want my kid to be one of a million little Liams, Ethans or Emmas in the class and I agree that the younger sibling’s name shouldn’t be a drastic difference from the older sibling’s name. Full Article

Such a great colour on her. Which is kinda what saves the look. I’m not all that excited about much else. The straps aren’t remarkable and, I don’t know, is it too long and too short at the same time?  Full Article

If this was just a blush tiered dress, I’d be bored and think it was Elie Saab. It’s the jacket that makes the entire look totally amazing. Like military with attitude, especially way the way it buttons diagonally so that the two red stripes look like bold, aggressive slashes, as if to say, don’t you dare call me “pretty”. Full Article

Duana Names: The Third Gets Four

Hi Duana, We were somewhat surprised to learn that we will be having a third baby. As we have a boy and a girl already, we are really struggling with a name. Keeping up with the "surprise" theme of this baby, we have opted not to find out the gender so need suggestions for both. We have a three- syllable hyphenated last name for our children, so have opted for short (1 or 2 syllable) names for our other children, both which happen to be four letters. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: a faster 5km

Hayley Posted by Hayley at November 12, 2015 17:19:06 November 12, 2015 17:19:06

Hi Hayley, I just finished my 5th 5k in the past three years and got my best time, 29.39. In my first 5k in 2013, I ran at 34.00 minutes because I got tired and walked. I shaved off time since then but I'm disappointed because I wanted to run faster this time. I train primarily on a treadmill I have at home, while my second child naps and my eldest is in school. Full Article

Duana Names: You-know-who goes up the hill

Duana Posted by Duana at November 11, 2015 20:23:27 November 11, 2015 20:23:27

Hi Duana, Equally as excited and exasperated to need your help! I'm a longtime reader, and I have a name-nerdy passion that stems from having my own unique name: my parents started 'Riley' for girls long before it was trendy. I was the only one with my name in my high school, and the only female with my name in my town. Full Article

If you’ve been reading my column a while you know I hate this colour. Baby blue. Insipid is the word I’d use to describe it. To me, if you have to wear baby blue, the outfit has to have some edge, to balance out its blandness. This… is not what I had in mind. A ruffled dress that looks cheap and clubby on a Saturday night. Full Article
