I'm having a baby and we're talking about names.  We used to have a 1st choice girl's name, Louella.  I really like the idea of calling my daughter Lulu or Lou when she's little, but also not sticking her with a childish name for life.  Recently, my husband's brother had a daughter and named her Ella, so Louella is now out of the picture. Full Article

The way I see it, you can’t go wrong with braids. LOVE braids. Almost all braids. I was on a braid binge during TIFF this year – a different braid style every day.

Messy bun, baggy-ish pants that still look pretty cute shoved into boots, and a well fit black blazer with a great trim, and maybe some stains on the shoulder.
