Hi Hayley - I recently lost some weight, which am very pleased with and have needed to do for a long time. Unfortunately, I also lost most of my bum, which used to be curvy and awesome and is now kind of flat. What exercises can I do the bulk up the muscle as much as possible without bulking up my thighs? I know that spot training for reduction doesn't work, but can you spot train with the aim of bulking up just one area? A ___ One of the reasons we over develop muscles in our body while feeling as though the muscles we want to tone or strengthen remain weak and non-existent is because our bodies do not know how to properly recruit the muscles we are wanting to engage. Full Article

Hi Duana, I'm due in June with our second child (a girl!) and we are having a hard time finding a name we love that goes well with both our last name and our son's name, Marcus.  Since we have a somewhat long Italian last name that people tend to trip over, we are trying to stay away from names that are difficult to spell/pronounce or have several different pronunciations. Full Article

Duana Help! Naming our first born was super easy. My husband and I both have brothers and lots of male cousins that will do their part to honour family names. So there was no pressure for us to take that route. I opened up a baby name book, stumbled upon Nolan and that was it. Middle name Nash, easy. Full Article

I love a halter. I find it almost always flattering. And it’s very flattering here on Mae Whitman. Good choice too to have the hair in a topknot, which I also love a lot. I topknot at least once a week on The Social. A topknot, to me, is much less “girlish” than a ponytail. And that’s also a good move for this dress because it’s borderline little princess. Full Article

I love this little black dress. White stripes down the arms make it look like a sports top. The material looks so comfortable. And that’s a smart way to create pockets, non?  Full Article

So a couple of things in relation to the past few days.   Several of you wrote in to tell me that I had neglected to point out (in this post – click here) the third spelling of Margo/Margot – which is of course Margaux. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I love your column. I am writing to ask for some tips to tone my back. I am wearing an open back dress to a wedding in July and want my back to look amazing. I currently run four times a week and am training for my second half-marathon of the year. I also lift weights 2-3 times per week and on a good week get a long bike ride in too. Full Article

Hi Duana! I wrote you a name nerd question a little over a month ago and since then the question has morphed. I originally asked your opinion on Margo vs. Amara.  We have since decided on Margo but are now agonizing over Margo vs. Margot spelling. I think we both like Margot a little better but are worried about people mispronouncing her name as "Mar-GOT". Full Article
