Hi Hayley, July last year I started running again. When I say ‘again’, I had previously used running intermittently as nothing more than a weight loss tool and didn’t veer off of the treadmill. I started running (outdoors) as a way to burn off some of the excess weight that crept on after I moved to France, and found that I really loved it! So much so that I signed up for my first marathon - a hilly trail course in the Scottish Highlands – which I finished in just under 4:15. Full Article

I liked a lot of what I saw from the KENZO x H&M collection the other day. But I’m partial to KENZO. They make great sweatshirts. And now they’ll be more affordable at H&M. I think? KENZO is known for the animal inspirations. And look at all of it on Iman. Cheetah and zebra, right? The black on black zebra print on the coat is especially effective. Full Article

Hi Duana, I’m expecting baby boy #2 at the end of October, and my husband and I are having trouble coming up with a name that we love as much as the one we gave our first son – Calvin James. James is a family name on my side, and since he was getting my husband’s last name, I wanted him to have that connection to my family, as well. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Butt alignment

Hi Hayley! It recently came to my attention, after seeing a podiatrist regarding pain in my feet, that my pelvis isn't evenly aligned (i.e. my left side is lower) and that my pelvis is tilted back, causing my butt to stick out more than it should. Who knew!? Anyway, now I'm feeling self-conscious about how I look when I walk and also concerned that I'm doing some major alignment damage to my body. Full Article

Off-the-shoulder is a really nice look for Drew Barrymore. And I quite like the sheer sleeves on her too. So my one complaint with this dress is that I wish it wasn’t waisted. Instead of putting in a waist, I would have wanted it to fall straight down, in a column. The waist makes it seem as though the dress was something else to begin with and the sleeves were added later. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Be a stronger hiker

Hayley Posted by Hayley at October 14, 2016 19:34:43 October 14, 2016 19:34:43

Hi Hayley, I just recently moved to Vermont - land of hills, mountains and great hiking everywhere. I've been looking forward to getting more in shape, but without fail, every hike starts okay - usually with an incline with varying degrees of steepness and then 5-8 minutes in, I'm wheezing, can't breathe, and normally need to stop soon after to catch my breath. Full Article
