Duana Names: Not, you know, You-neek

Hi Duana! Love your advice. So here's our predicament. Baby 2, whose sex we will not find out, is due October 8th. Our 1st, a girl, is Linden. We LOVE Linden because it is unique but not you-neek, it's a real but underused name, and it refers to a relative (her grandma is Linda). We have chosen Mirren if Baby 2 is a girl and love it for much the same reasons, though there's no family connection other than being Scottish, a background we share. Full Article

Gucci gave us a lot of great fashion porn at the show yesterday. On the runway and on its celebrity guest list. My favourite front row look came from royalty – Charlotte Casiraghi. So into the length of this dress. The wide collar. The subtle but not quite matched belt. And that 70s print. I’m positive my ma wore a scarf in the 70s in this print. Full Article

The other day in one of my sessions, my client was complaining to me about how she could not seem to get her husband to be active, no matter how hard she tried. She’s quite an active girl, and although he fully supports her commitment to her fitness, he seems to have zero interest in his own. Full Article

Dear Duana, Help!  We are expecting our second son in early October. We had a difficult time naming our first son but once he was born settled on the perfect name for him, Mathis Alexander. You see, my husband is a teacher and I work with rescue dogs and have had the privilege of naming hundreds of dogs over the years. Full Article

Everything about this outfit is making me happy – the lips on the shirt, the leather skirt, the length of it and the slits all over, and the sunglasses too… She looks fresh and fun and happy and amazing.  Full Article

In thumbnails I thought I would be obsessed with this dress and the pattern. Up close I like that there’s a little shade of purple/Bordeaux coming through on the squares. But I think I hate the neckline. It’s too wide for me. Too scooped. It works for her because she has small breasts. Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Scale obsession

Hayley Posted by Hayley at September 22, 2015 14:37:56 September 22, 2015 14:37:56

I have always had my opinions on using weight as a way of recording fitness progress. Yes, body weight is something that needs some attention, but placing all of your focus on how much the scale goes up or down can be dangerous. I am an athlete and when I am fully into my training, whatever sport that may be at the time, I am fit, I am strong, I am healthy and I weigh a lot. Full Article
