One month before she was born an acquaintance had a girl named Kiera. Two months after out Kyra i heard of another Kira. A friend due in July said that name is on her short list. Full Article

Classic Man is not going to show up at the BET Awards looking like anyone else. These green pants made sure of that. And that’s a tricky shade of green. I don’t know that a lot of people would pair it with such a busy shirt. But he did. And it works.  Full Article

I need a hooded blazer like right f-cking now. God I love this look. And it’s deep enough that the hood stays on too. Which is what counts about a hood, that adds to the drama of one. And in white, oh my god, it’s like a pretend wedding veil, without the bother of an actual wedding. Full Article

Not quite as many changes as Carrie Underwood whenever she hosts the CMAs because who has the time but still there was a lot of style variety from Tracee Ellis Ross last night. My least favourite was the carpet dress – python print and slicked back hair. The all purple sequin jumpsuit also not my thing but, that said, subtlety was never the theme here. Full Article

Few can spell it but I've gotten so used to it that I don't mind. I am need of some name-nerd expertise. I'm getting a dog later this year, just need to puppy proof my house first, and decide on a breed. Full Article

Hey Hayley, I have been following this blog for years and you since the beginning. I was so stoked a couple years ago when you got into mountain biking and now skate skiing, two of my faves. The question I have for you is around speed in climbing on a bike and running. I will toot my own downhill horn and say between the up and the down I am way stronger on the down. Full Article

I would totally copy this outfit, item for item, including the backpack, even though I haven’t worn a backpack in years. The way Susan Sarandon is wearing a backpack however makes it seem eternally cool. Much cooler than I’ll ever be and I’m almost 30 years younger. Which is why this outfit does more than just look good. Full Article
