A chambray shirt, tight gym pants, a backpack, and heels… Very few people can make it all work together like that. Rihanna, certainly. Maybe Miley Cyrus. Definitely not Katie Holmes. I do like those Adidas kicks she has on though with her sweats.  Full Article

Hi Duana, I'm not due until around Christmas, and my partner and I are still early in the baby name game (i.e. we're still pretty far apart on our choices).

My partner's parents already have grandkids so we'll probably stick with the titles they use (nan and granddad), but this will be the first grandchild for my parents. Full Article

Hi Hayley, I'm training for my first 10km! I have been stop-start about trying to get fit for years, I am usually good for two-three weeks, then get lazy again.

I have been using the Nike Training app (which is great!), however when I go running I usually have to stop and stretch my lower leg muscles again after 1-2km. Full Article

Hi Duana We are pregnant, and while I would love to find out the gender ASAP hubby would love it to be a surprise until birth, so I will do that for him.
