Hi Duana! I am French, not pregnant and not intending to be anytime soon, but I like to read your column about name nerding as the cultural differences are always interesting to me. I particularly enjoyed the last one (that I've read, at least) about Vivianne, Vivienne, Vivian, etc. (link) I am writing about a very good friend of mine who is 5 months pregnant with her first child. Full Article

It’s been the hottest summer on record in Toronto, well, who the f-ck are we kidding here, AROUND THE GLOBE….but hey, this is a beauty post so I’m not gonna get too real on your asses. But I will say that the rising temperatures have put my pits to the test.  I already sweat like a muther on a normal day, so once you add 40 degree weather into the mix, my armpits are crying down the inside of my arms. Full Article

Hi Duana, I love your name columns and have read them for fun, with no naming intentions for a while. My husband and I are finally expecting and we're overjoyed to find out it is boy/girl twins. We're due in August and have a list of girl names we like (favourites are Alienna, Vera, Isla), but we're absolutely stuck on boy names. Full Article

This is the one. The outfit. One of her best. And it’s not like Sarah Paulson doesn’t give us so much great style already. But this blouse with the shimmer and the neck bow over a pocketed leather skirt with an elastic waist is one for all time.  Full Article

What a great outfit, starting with a great print. And the great shape of the shoulders, ruched to give more form and more definition. I also like where the skirt is falling.  Full Article

Hi Duana, After reading your Name Nerd column today, I decided to write in. I'm expecting a baby girl in August- she is our 3rd, and first girl. My husband and I had no problems naming our sons, Jack and Sam. I know these names aren't unique, but I'm fine with it- I love them both. Full Article

Hi Duana, My husband and I are at odds about how to spell the nickname of our son Julian. My husband is from England and says Jools is the correct spelling and that Jules is the feminine version. I think that it doesn't come as naturally (especially as we live in Canada) and prefer Jules. Full Article

By now you all know of my disdain for social media, specifically Instagram. But don’t worry, I won’t make you read how I think the majority of people have become vapid, approval seeking, loser faces, instead I’m actually here to admit that maybe, just maybe I end up missing out on some funny sh-t. Full Article

Hi Hayley, After decades of crash dieting and little strenuous exercise (coupled with constant complaining about how "fat" she is), my mom has finally started going to the gym three days/week with a trainer. She seems really excited about it all, but after 3 weeks she is already complaining that she hasn't lost any weight. Full Article
