We Tried It: Milk & Cookies Kids Spa and Salon

What Is It: Milk & Cookies Kids Spa and Salon

Who Tried It: Regan Stephens, Photo Editor

Why We Did It: I imagined I’d take my daughter for her first manicure when she turned 16 — around the age I got my first. (A celebration for passing my driver’s test.)

But at just 3½, she’s had an eagle eye on every painted digit we’ve passed for months. When I heard about Milk & Cookies — a spa for the small set — I couldn’t resist treating her to a little Valentine’s Day outing.

Some moms-to-be take a timeout from exercise during their pregnancy. But not Haylie Duff — she just keeps on pedaling to the finish line.

In an interview with Miami Racked, the host of The Real Girl’s Kitchen — who will welcome a daughter this spring — admits her workout routine hasn’t changed much since she found out she was expecting her first child.

“I did SoulCycle through my whole pregnancy and I go on walks with friends,” says Duff, 30.

“I’ve worked through most of it, shooting season two of The Real Girl’s Kitchen. So I’ve been active in general.”

And although her baby girl with fiancé Matt Rosenberg will be the couple’s firstborn, the actress is still keeping in shape by running around after a toddler: 2½-year-old Luca Cruz, her sister Hilary Duff‘s son.

Molly Sims Shares Her Secret to Bouncing Back After Giving Birth

02/26/2015 at 12:30 PM ET

After tying the knot at 38, Molly Sims immediately wanted to start a family — and her wish came true when she got pregnant on her honeymoon.

Fast-forward to the couple trying to conceive their second child, and the model’s age — she was now 41 — posed a much bigger problem.

“People always think, ‘Oh, you have to take care of yourself once you get pregnant or when you have the baby,’ but your body is like a garden,” Sims says in the latest issue of The Bump.

“You have to feed it and make sure it’s fertile before you even start trying. I saw a great acupuncturist who put me on fertility teas.”

Once she became pregnant — Sims is now expecting a daughter in March — the mom-to-be stuck with her healthy habits but eased up on her workout routine.

“My body just didn’t feel like I needed it, especially in the middle months, and I didn’t want to push it as hard,” she explains. “Some days you have the energy, and some days you feel like you’ve been hit by a bus.”
