Duana Names: On Esme

Duana Posted by Duana at February 20, 2014 16:39:54 February 20, 2014 16:39:54

Hi Duana, I'm hoping you can provide some neutral perspective on my preferred baby girl's name, because I can't get any from my nearest and dearest. Here's the name: Esme. Here's the problem: for Generation X and the Baby Boomers in Australia (i.e. my husband, my parents, his parents), Esme Waston is a character from a beloved 1980's  Australian drama series called "A Country Practice" - she was an elderly lady who was in the CWA (think the kind of woman who bakes for shows and fairs and has an award winning cake, plays lawn bowls, volunteers for everything, wears support hose and orthopaedic shoes) and was to put it kindly an interfering old busy body. Full Article

Dear Sasha, Last night my boyfriend of 3 years and I were out on a date and somehow the topic of drinking came up. I told him how much less i've been drinking when we don't spend the evening together (we live separately). He responded by telling me that he was planning on cutting down his own drinking by having a couple of 'dry' nights a week. Full Article

Duana Names: Whose Nerd Reigns Supreme?

Hey Duana, Well I’m pregnant for the second time this year, first time ended in a miscarriage very early on, which lead me to be overly cautious/ paranoid with this one. On the bright side everything is going as it should be, and I’m almost 20 weeks so I’m starting to accept that this is actually going to stick. Full Article

I’ve never been big on Roksanda Ilincic. But I just camera-tested a piece from her last collection for the Oscars and... I love it. I’m still carrying some book weight right now after writing all last year. So I’m between a US 6 and 8. And this dress flatters without making me feel like I need to not eat until March 2. Full Article

I love this collection. It’s so… woman. Check out those boots with the cowboy cut. Amazing, right? And the sequined sports jersey dress? And I don’t even hate that throwback red dress with the turtleneck  and the ruching tier on the skirt. Is it crushed velvet? Oh I hope so. Full Article

Hi Sasha, Don't laugh, but I've been married for a little over a month now and things have been rocky from the start. I'm not sure how to start, but it’s been really difficult trying to talk to my husband and him to me. He has a negative attitude towards my friends so i stop talking to them since before we got married. Full Article
