Duana Names: “Finishing” a name

Duana Posted by Duana at March 25, 2014 18:57:55 March 25, 2014 18:57:55

I am 34 weeks pregnant with a girl. After much negotiation, my husband and I have decided to name her Mira. However, we are having a lot of trouble with a middle name. Because I am giving the child my husband's last name, and I don't want to hyphenate (our names sound bad together) or give her my last name as her maiden name (my mom did that to me and I always hated it) I want the middle name to alternatively represent me somehow. Full Article

Sasha Answers: Birthday Drama

Sasha Posted by Sasha at March 25, 2014 18:37:28 March 25, 2014 18:37:28

My 35th birthday is coming up about a month from now. I don’t have much in the way of family and friends to celebrate with (we are new to the city we live in), so I haven’t made any plans yet. In fact, I hadn’t really thought about it until today. I’m not sure what I want to do this year, but the reason it was brought to my attention today is that I just received an email invitation to attend my sister's boyfriend’s surprise birthday party next month (they live in the same city as us, but have been here for a few years longer and are much more outgoing and social than my husband and me). Full Article

Dear Sasha, On paper, my life is amazing. I have an incredible job, the career I've wanted since I was 16. I own my condo, I have smart, intelligent friends and family who push me to be better, I live in a city I love and I'm madly in love. The problem: the man I'm madly in love with just moved here to be with me and he hates this city and is all around miserable. Full Article

LOVE this entire look. Remember when people used to laugh at the leather jogger? No man. Don’t laugh. Not until you’ve tried it. An elastic waistband? Nothing stretching at your thighs? No worries when your calves expand at the end of the day? And the versality! Works with kicks and pumps, as seen here on Lily Allen. Full Article

You guys, I know this one is a little long, but it’s worth it. Check it out: My first name contains the letter “L”, with “la” being the predominant sound and literal centre of the name. Unfortunately, as a kid, I had trouble with making this sound and as such couldn’t pronounce my very simple first name. Full Article
