Hi Duana!   I’m in a bit of a dilemma. So long story short, my first two children’s names start with an M – Marvin and Melissa. At the time of naming my daughter, I had thought I was done with having babies so the matchiness of the names were fine to me. They were a set. Well. Full Article

There are two of them because Sarah Paulson gave us two doses of style porn in two days. Let’s start with the Gucci dress she wore to the Game of Thrones premiere on Wednesday night which I’ve saved to today, because the moment I saw it I was like, yep, that’s the OOTW but now I’m googling it and it made most people’s “worst” list, WHAT? I don’t get it. Full Article

Hey Duana, Writing to you for again! The first time I wrote for advice back in 2015 about my mentor’s second child; today, I’m writing about my best friend.  Her daughter’s name is Lane, which was a family name, and which suited my friend’s desire for something relatively gender-neutral, clean, and non-trendy. Full Article

Duana Names: Cape Up, Name Nerds!

Hi Duana! We just had a brand new baby boy! He was born last week on March 21st. He is absolutely beautiful and has a soft demeanour. Although, I don’t know many newborns that don’t at this age. He is the first grandson, first nephew and our first child. As you can imagine, there is a lot riding on his name and we’re feeling the pressure to choose something ASAP! Prior to his birth we made a list of boy names that we adored. Full Article

We have certain fashion rules here at LaineyGossip. Here’s one: Zendaya can wear anything. Also Cate Blanchett. And Yara Shahidi is on the list too. So if you’ve come here to talk about how weird this fan attached to her dress is, that is not going to happen. I LOVE the idea of the fan. That said, I’m not sure about the execution. Full Article

Hi Duana, I'm expecting my second child (gender to remain a mystery until arrival) the first week of April and am unreasonably panicked over our lack of boy names. We used our favourite (Forrest) the first time 'round and now I seem to hate everything, or whatever I do find that seems okay-ish/worth discussing, the husband vetoes. Full Article

Sasha Finds: Trench season 

Sasha Posted by Sasha at March 29, 2019 20:05:55 March 29, 2019 20:05:55

Every time around this year I look at my parka and I want to set it on f-cking fire. But it’s still not even close enough to coatless season so at this point, I just need us to all get to trench weather. I’ve been scouring the worldwide web for the perfect one and dudes, I think I’ve found my dream from The Frankie Shop... Full Article

Smutty Fitness: Soreness

Hi Hayley,  I'm writing for two reasons:  First reason: when I work out I'm in a lot of pain after. I've had shin splints in the past and now get them touch and go. But I get really knotty calves from working out. I use my stress balls on my calves almost daily, as sometimes when they're really bad and it leads to back pain. Full Article

Let’s start with the dress – suuuuch a good dress with all those different shades of colours blending into each other, all of it anchored by that print of a tree, making her look even taller than she already is. Which I love because, as Duana, who is also tall but not as tall as Jessica Williams, has observed before, tall women sometimes feel like they have to UN-tall themselves. Full Article
