Hi Duana, Even before we got married, my husband and I talked about how if we ever had kids, and if it was a girl, we'd name her after my maternal grandmother - Loree (not Laurie. Lor-EE)  This was so much the plan that when my sister had a little girl, she considered that name but did not use it out of respect for us wanting to use it. Full Article

 There’s a certain style aesthetic to the country music red carpet. A CMA carpet is not a Golden Globes carpet. It’s brighter and sparklier. The hair is bigger, the bows are wider.  So I was surprised to see this dress on Kelsea Ballerini. It’s not the best dress. And it has a certain CMA quality with the metallic accents. Full Article

Faith Hill wore a black one-shoulder Armani gown on the red carpet at the CMAs last night. Don’t care for it. And not because of all that gathering creeping up her neck on one side. But because of that black sparkle material. It’s so specifically of an era, only without a modern update. Which, I think, has been Mr Armani’s problem. Full Article

Hi Duana,   We are due in mid-November and decided for the surprise (!) aka we don’t know the sex of the baby. This has been surprisingly difficult in 2017, as many people WANT to know the gender for gifting and I’m actually amazed at how ‘gender/sex-oriented’ clothes and colors actually are. Full Article

Hi Hayley, Can you recommend some foods I should be eating after I work out in the evenings? The only time I can work out is around 8pm after my daughter is in bed, but I've found some great online programs and do a variety of cardio, weights, and yoga. I'm feeling great but never know what I should eat when I finish around 8:45, especially when I like to go to bed around 10/10:30. Full Article

If this were dress, I think I wouldn’t like it as much. Actually, if this were anyone else, like, say, Penelope Cruz, who’s done the feather thing so many f-cking times, I would probably hate it.  This, however, is not dress and it’s also not Penelope, it’s Zendaya. Which makes all the difference. Full Article

I would be nervous wearing this dress with all these pearls. Of course they’re not real. But they’re still hazards, non? Like they could easily catch on something? Also… is it heavy?  No matter, I’m into it all the same. It’d be worth the risk. Not just because of all those pearls but also because of the fit and the cut. Full Article

Hi Duana! Here's the situation. A few years ago my partner and I adopted a beautiful Maine Coon cat and naming her was a snap - the shelter had been calling her Marsha, so we shortened that to Mars in honor of one of our favorite heroines, Veronica Mars. I didn't realize at the time how perfect the name was, but like Veronica, she's sassy, willful, and a total marshmallow. Full Article
