Smutty Fitness: 4 fitness forward questions & answers

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 11, 2018 19:10:02 January 11, 2018 19:10:02

By way of background, my husband and I kind of ‘let ourselves go’ a little bit, with three kids in six years and the general chaos that ensues. Both our diet and fitness levels suffered as a result, and the weight slowly but surely crept on. In August we decided to make a change, and started exercising regularly and eating better (although we still indulge in wine, cheese, and the like on weekends, but we’re pretty good during the week). Full Article

I’m trying to remember the last time I wore red pants. The only pair that comes to mind is from the 90s, red velvet, I think they were from the Gap. Velvet doesn’t stretch so I feel like they weren’t comfortable but I do think I loved the look. Why is that I’m into red pants but not a red dress?  Here’s Angela Bassett in a pair of red pants and a black one-shoulder top. Full Article

Duana Names: Because Of Course You Did*

Hi Duana, When we got pregnant with our first boy, and then our second, the naming process was quite easy on both occasions and went a little something like this:  (i) I suggested my top boy name to my husband; (ii) he really liked it; (iii) over the next several months we would occasionally throw a new name into the ring just to be sure, but Top Name always won without so much as a fight; and (iv) Top Name became the given name. Full Article

Well. WELL.  What can you hate?  WHAT?  Nothing, that’s what.  It’s a silver jumpsuit and Tracee Ellis Ross is wearing – and posing – the sh-t out of it, there’s no f-cking problem.  And the fit of it is marvelous, non? Look at that pa-pow action from the side. Full Article

We’ve been seeing a lot of one-shoulders lately. It will likely continue through award season.  Last night, Salma Hayek and Selma Blair both worked the one-shoulder at the W Magazine pre-Golden Globes party. Any preference?  Both are caped, Salma’s is fringed, but Selma’s has a the added collar feature and is still much more spare. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Mental and physical health in 2018

Hayley Posted by Hayley at January 4, 2018 20:10:37 January 4, 2018 20:10:37

For this first post of 2018 I’m sharing my fitness journey, because I think it is important to understand that life is a journey and it is forever changing. What works for us at one point in our lives may not work for us at another. Fitness for me began early. I don’t know why I was born so competitive but from as far back as I can remember I always had to win. Full Article

Hi Duana, I absolutely love your column and baby name advice - if I ever have any baby name questions your column will be the first place I go! This, however, is not about any future children. This is about my, and my fiancé's, married names. Here is the situation (and apologies for the long email) – simply put, I want to share a last name with my fiancé and our possible future children. Full Article

Though it’s not an exact science, as I’ve mentioned, I try to answer name questions before the due dates of the arrivals, if that’s practical. But sometimes things get more complicated than that. Here’s an email I got in August: Hi Duana,  We are expecting our second boy early in the new year. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Happy Holidays from Hayley

I wanted to finish this year off with a letter to you and a recap of what I feel is the most important lesson we learned in 2017.  With the ongoing LaineyGossip theme of Show Your Work and the ever strong #metoo movement that took the end of the year by storm, I feel it is important to remind ourselves that we are all deserving. Full Article

Carpets & Candids: Kristen’s one-shoulder black and white

It’s been hit or miss with Kristen Wiig on the red carpet for me lately. More misses, I think.  This black and white one-shoulder dress, however, is a safe hit. Safe because, to me, it’s impossible not to like it. There’s nothing to offend here. And the feature I appreciate most is that the print doesn’t go right up to the edge of the slant that’s created by the one-shoulder feature. Full Article
