This outfit is basically undergarments. A tank bra on top and a the skirt looks like a slip, doesn’t it? Duana is big on slips. I never wear slips. I’ve never worn slips. My ma did though and when I was a kid, I used to wear her slips around my shoulders like capes. Do you slip? Slip or no slip? Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Beyond sit-ups

Hayley Posted by Hayley at December 16, 2016 18:51:23 December 16, 2016 18:51:23

After my second child I realized I had diastasis recti. And then I realized that I'd had it after my first 5 years earlier - but just dismissed as Mom body. I've quit sit-ups as I've heard that they just make it worse, but my regime of toe-taps and wall sits is not giving me results. Any suggestions?  Thanks! --- Diastasis recti is the stretching and separation of the rectus abdominals (the six pack muscle). Full Article

The winter has hit us hard here on Canada’s west coast, which means running outside is out of the question. It’s not that we west coasters can’t handle the cold, but our city can’t seem to clear the snow (all 15cm of it) off the sidewalks before it freezes and turns into a giant skating rink. Full Article

For most people at Critics’ Choice, especially on the film side, they’re not bringing their A dresses. Consider that we still have the Globes and the SAGs and then the Oscars to come. Compared to those events, nobody cares about Critics’ Choice. Kate Beckinsale, as I’ve been saying for a decade, however, is a chronic overdresser. Full Article

Hey Duana, My husband and I are expecting a girl on January 1st and are still undecided on her name. We have a son, Alexander, who mostly goes by Alex, but is also called Sasha by myself and my husband (we both speak Russian). I love me some odd names, but my husband is much more traditional. Full Article

I wish it didn’t take the holidays to motivate us all to be better human beings, but it’s better than nothing. So while we are all snuggled up in our cozy PJs, eating an endless supply of food from our fridge, and doing something as inane as mulling over which snapchat filter you should use, let’s think about all the people that will be sleeping in the streets during the coldest time of the year. Full Article

This is a festive dress. I understand why someone would want to wear it this time of year. And I think the hairstyle choice for it is perfect. The dress itself, however, is kind of a disappointment, mostly because of the material. I like the billowy design, I like the collar wrapped around the neck. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Pilates moves

Hayley Posted by Hayley at December 9, 2016 16:19:23 December 9, 2016 16:19:23

If you didn’t know this about me already, I am IN LOVE with my Pilates practice. Although I will never look like a graceful dancer, the movements of Pilates have been so great for all of my sports and it keeps my body pretty pain free. I understand that Pilates is not only expensive but can be intimidating for us “less flexible” types. Full Article
