Lela Rose has come a long way since her childhood years in Dallas. From a painting and sculpting major at the University of Colorado, to creating a self-made business making vests and vintage scarves, to earning a degree from Parsons School of Design, she is quite the force to be reckoned with.
Since the birth of the little princess, people around the world have been abuzz with excitement. I refer, of course, to my granddaughter, Chloe. Peo...
Talk. Try to understand what it's like for her. Listen. She might not say much but she is speaking volumes. Be there for her to catch the tears as they fall, her heart as it breaks. Because the day to day agony of HG will end, and the days that follow will be flavoured with the compassion and kindness that you showed her when she was ready to fall.
In the world of celebrity (the kind that bleeds over into the "news" sections of our favorite online magazines), Americans are most obsessed with two things: royalty and babies.
Congratulations on the gorgeous Christening of Princess Charlotte! Now Kate - can I call you Kate? I feel like I know you so well as we have so much in common. We both live in London, we both have two kids and we're both married to blokes called Will! SNAP.
During my years in England, it seemed almost everyone had heard of the Calgary Stampede, Exhibition and Rodeo. "What's it like?" people would ask, wide-eyed and in hushed tones as if it were a magical event.
Well, it's nearly six months into the new year and we already have seen some wonderful (and less than wonderful) baby names from top celebrities world-wide. Below, Mallory Moss, co-founder of BabyNames.com, lists the most recent contenders for best baby names of 2015.
You probably saw the news. There's a new royal in the world, all 8 pounds, 3 ounces of her, bundled in a sweet designer white blanket and matching cap.
Radhika Sanghani spends most of her life writing in London. Besides working on a sequel to her bestseller, Virgin, she works about 50 hours per week as a journalist, as she is one of the Wonder Women columnists for The Telegraph.
Women after birth can look radiant and lovely, if they brush their hair, have a quick wash, put on some gloss and simply smile while holding their baby, but for most mothers that's the last thing on their mind.
Motherhood is the great equalizer. Something we can have in common even with a princess. No, you cannot escape the reality of motherhood even if you are a royal.
Yes, Kate may be Royal. Yes, she may have a number of Royal advantages at her finger tips (that the rest of us don't) and, yes, she did look bloody gorgeous just hours after having her baby, but so the hell what?!
If a "dad bod" means having a protruding belly rather than washboard abs, then a "mum bod" involves having stretch marks, cellulite and a little tummy. But instead of accepting our bodies, we berate ourselves and push unobtainable beauty standards onto other women.
Now that we know the most eagerly awaited baby name of the century, I, co-founder of Babynames.com, will break the name down in meaning and popularity... and let's not forget heart.
I hear your elder brother George is quite a big deal. My big sister, Freyja, is too. At least that is what it feels like sometimes. For a start, she had a baby book which is at least partly filled in. Mine is completely blank. I am not even sure if my parents have even opened it.
I know postpartum isn't glamorous or how models should look on the runway; however, despite how we look or what Mother Nature does to our bodies, we simply want to look beautiful. The moment is beautiful. I want to remember being beautiful.
