Welcome back to the Sasha Answers podcast! Do we ever have a good lineup for you! On today's podcast: Is a sexless relationship salvageable?

Dear Duana, I have a sweet yet spunky daughter named Flora. I get that some people find the name choice strange (bacteria! margarine!), but overwhelmingly, the reaction has been positive. It helps that we live close to Italy! The name struck a chord with me because I'm a fan of 1890s novels. Full Article

As we chatted this week on the podcast I’ve gone hippy mode – armpit hair and all, well, whatever, I tried. The thing is, I’ve always been a tree hugger, but with, I don’t know, a thug twist. Like, I love grinding it out to some Tupac, but I also love burning my copal. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I recently had my second (and last!) baby and am eager to restart a fitness routine. Prior to having children I ran full and half marathons, cycled, swam, and the only strength training I ever stuck to is barre-style workouts.

This is my favourite Busy Philipps outfit of all time. It’s a good striped dressed that hits her at the perfect length. And then a pair of chunky platform oxfords instead of heels.

Hey Duana, I hope this email finds you well. My husband and I need a bit of help naming our 2nd baby girl coming along this August. My big problem at the moment is that I kind of have an earworm of a name rattling around in my head that I know I shouldn't consider, but both my husband and I really like it. Full Article
