Dear Duana, I am expecting a daughter in December. I already have a four year old son named Linus Nin Lum (whose middle name is in honor of a deceased great grandfather).

Winter can be a tough time to get outside to exercise and it is easy to spend most of the long, dark days indoors, both working and working out. The air is cold, the ground is slippery and it is dark, both before and after work. But with proper preparation, as well as picking the right outdoor activities, you can enjoy a few outdoor workouts each week. Full Article

Hi Duana, I’m due with my second child on December 2 and we decided, as we did with our son, to keep the sex a surprise. My three year old is Gavin and it’s a name I loved forever – we settled on it before I was out of the first trimester. The problem is, it seems to be the only boy name I like. Full Article

She looks great in this jumpsuit. And she makes it look so easy, like there wasn’t all kinds of tape applied and that she doesn’t have to worry about gaping when she walks. God I want small breasts.  Full Article

This dress is totally prommy, no doubt. It’s also exquisite. The print is lovely. I like how the dots smear the roses. And I like how the roses light up at the right angles. Also the side bustle? Doesn’t always work for me but here, I like it so much.  Full Article

I bought a gorgeous tuxedo this year. I've worn it once so far. Will wear it again for a thing in a couple of weeks. I will keep wearing it for years until it doesn't fit me anymore. An investment. ... Full Article

I really like FKA twigs's commitment to pant creativity. This all black jumpsuit would have been fine if it was just a dress but it's special now that you know it's pants on the bottom. And when you're going to collect a British Fashion Award, this is the kind of edge that suits the event. Full Article

It looks complicated to me, with all those wraps and tucks. That doesn’t mean it’s not a great dress on her though because it is. I quite like the little cut-out at the hip on one side from the front and definitely the party in the back.  Full Article

Duana Names: State of Grace

Duana Posted by Duana at November 23, 2015 19:31:06 November 23, 2015 19:31:06

Our last name is a traditional English name, 3 syllables. We had originally chosen the name Olivia Grace as we thought it sounded great with our last name and could picture both a little girl and a grown woman easily going by this name. My bubble was burst however when I realized just how popular the name Olivia is these days. Full Article
