Dear Duana - Three years ago as we were about to welcome our first daughter your voice was in my head. (She's a Veronica, by the way. Best name for our kiddo hands down.) Awkwardly, I'm writing for your input on a situation I've found myself in that has nothing to do with naming a child. Full Article

Let’s take a quick moment and chat about summer vacations and our fitness, as we are well into summer and if you have let things slip, now is the time to pull the reins and take the control back.  I had a client come in for their usual morning workout and they were complaining right away about how bad their fitness had become, and they couldn’t understand why. Full Article

Duana Names: WWDD?

Duana, I find names fascinating. I am due with my first babe in just under two weeks and I have been pretty set on a name up until now. Just to dial it back, about six months, I was pretty damn convinced that we were having a girl as I come from a large family of women. My intuition said I was carrying a girl, my family and friends thought it was a girl, and it just felt like I had extra feminine energy around me. Full Article

Dear Duana, I don't know if you do these types of requests but figured it was worth a shot. I am six weeks away from starting university at a school where I know almost no one. I'm excited. It also gives me the opportunity to go by a different name which is something I've been thinking over for years really as a lifelong name nerd. Full Article

Sasha Finds: Tassled earrings

While I always skew on the minimalist side of things when it comes to jewelry, every now and then it’s fun to dose up on some fun flash. And this season, it’s all about shoulder-sweeping tasseled earrings. Go bold, go bright and go beaded. Sure, yes, of course you can go the fast fashion route and hit up Zara or Forever 21 and find something on the cheap. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I broke my toe on the long weekend and it looks like the healing process could take up to 6 weeks. I'm wondering if you have any recommendations for ways to still work out when I am supposed to be staying off my feet as much as possible. My usual weekly workout routine is a combo of doing classes at the gym (boot camp, cardio/weights, circuit training), and shorter runs (5-6km), with occasional yoga. Full Article

Duana Names: How To Nick A Name

Hi Duana, Unlike most people who ask for your help, we have already named our baby girl. She is almost one year old. But Houston, we still have a problem. Our last name is a three syllable Italian name so I wanted a first and middle name that felt light/fresh and not too traditional/fussy. Full Article

Hi Duana, I would love your help please! My husband and I are having our second boy, due in July. We have a name all picked out, but I'm worried that it's becoming trendy or will be seen as a trendy choice. This is compounded by the fact that I think most boy names are horrid- I overheard a dad calling to his son in the park- and the poor little guy's name was MAGNUM. Full Article
