Hayley Posted by Hayley at August 18, 2016 15:52:48 August 18, 2016 15:52:48

Hi Hayley, After decades of crash dieting and little strenuous exercise (coupled with constant complaining about how "fat" she is), my mom has finally started going to the gym three days/week with a trainer. She seems really excited about it all, but after 3 weeks she is already complaining that she hasn't lost any weight. Full Article

Hi Duana, My sister, Dominika, is one week over her due date and totally dunzo. She and my BIL, Paul, still don’t know the gender and have no names at all! They have "writer's block" when it comes to names and have begged for your help. Both times they have decided not to find out the gender and it was so special when we found out her first baby was a boy! They named him Leo (one of their top choices, just Leo. Full Article

There’s a lot going on here. It’s a Marc Jacobs dress that feels like a Betsey Johnson. Right? The plain black pumps ground it though, as does the drama-free hairstyle. And overall, I don’t mind how there are several personalities happening at once in this design. Partly because of the black and white striped bow at the hip which somehow feels neat and tidy in the storm. Full Article

Hi Duana, I've re-read every name post you've ever written hoping a name (the name) would magically jump out at me. We are expecting baby #3 in early August and are stuck on a boy's name. There is a good chance the baby is a girl (we have two girls already) so it may not even be an issue but if it isn't, we are really stumped. Full Article

This entire outfit is SO good. But especially this top. I’m all about the off-the-shoulder, of course, but it’s also the way it hangs to the waist, almost like a jacket. You could wear this top in place of a blazer. PS. These pants are PERFECT.  Full Article

Hi Duana! I'm due to have my first child in early January. My husband and I have decided not to find out the sex, so we have been tossing around boy and girl names. We're in good shape for boy names, but the girl names have been giving us some trouble. We have a few favorites, including the name Audrey. Full Article

This is a cute flirty little dress that goes high up the neck and even though the material looks soft, there’s definition in the shoulder. Me, I would prefer if it didn’t have the party in the back because who needs to deal with bra dilemmas. Still, I imagine that’s the defining feature for almost everyone else. Full Article
