Kristin Cavallari on Pregnancy, Fashion and More

Approaching the six-month mark of her second pregnancy, Kristin Cavallari has taken a flight from negative-degree Chicago and braved a New York City blizzard to get to the photo studio. But on set, she shows zero signs of flagging. In fact, she seems to bounce into outfit after springy floral outfit, donning stilettos for hours without complaint. She’s glowing and toned, her baby bump the only evidence of the new life she’s about to bring into the world with her husband, Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

4 Ways to Find the Perfect Doula

While woman-to-woman maternity support has been around ever since women have been having babies (well, technically, Eve was on her own), doulas are relatively new.

Perfect for an on-the-go breakfast or a protein snack, they can also be gussied up with fancier fillings--like gruyere, asparagus or bacon--and served at brunch parties.  The recipe doubles easily and also freezes exceptionally well—just warm the quiches a bit after freezing to eliminate any “freezer” taste.
