As November has packed up and sauntered off for another year I wanted to recap my top 5 favourite things from the month gone by before we get all festive for December.
You maybe noticed that I did a favourite post for September but then skipped October, life got a little too busy and combined with atrocious internet (Omantel, you suck!) I just gave up trying.. But here I am back for November and ready to try again so lets dive straight in;
1- New Website
At the start of November I launched the brand spanking new Duncan Adventures website. We are now officially a dot com!
The web design and complicated bits were all done by the fantastic Terence Pereira. You can check out his page here..
I would love to hear what you think of the new site!
2- ‘Gone Girl’ book
After a long day with an active baby I love to take some time to relax and get lost in a good book. ‘Gone Girl’ written by Gillian Flynn was the perfect book to throw myself into. With mystery and suspense I couldn’t put it down, I was desperate to know how it ended. Especially after THAT twist in the story, I didn’t see that coming!
The movie, starring Ben Affleck, was released just as I was finishing the final few pages so I raced to the end of the book before I could watch it on the big screen. The movie was great but the book still trumps it, usually they always do.
3- Winter Weather
It was an incredibly long and hot summer here in Muscat so with the winter weather well and truly here we are planning to make the most of it. No longer are we confined to the house running the air conditioning all day, every day. We can step outside without our eyeballs burning and sweating like a running tap. Night thought, eh?
For the next few months at least we can play in the garden, take walks with the pram, BBQ outside and visit the beach. Ok, so it’s still about 30 degrees mid day but I’ll take that over 50 degrees any day!
Hurray for winter weather!
4- ‘Wood Winked’ MAC eye shadow
This month my make up treat was a beautiful little eye shadow pot from MAC. Lets be honest, You can’t really go wrong with MAC.
This little gem in the shade “Wood Winked” is a perfect blend of copper, brown and bronze together which is especially flattering on blue and brown eyes. This shadow can be used lightly for a subtle day time look or can be incorporated into an evening Smokey eye look.
Wood Winked really helps my blue eyes to “pop” – I have worn it every single day for two weeks now!
5- National Day
On the 18th November Oman celebrated it’s 44th National Day. The whole country joined together to celebrate the occassion by decorating their cars, houses, attending events and dancing in the streets. It is a really beautiful thing to see how much the Omani people love and respect their Sultan.
I dressed Spencer in an Omani shirt by Razza Fashion (You can find these at TOTEM) and the owner Dr Sami uploaded the picture to both of his Instagram accounts where Spencer got over 3,000 likes. Very impressive!
National Day is a great occasion for both locals and Expats to join together and celebrate His Majesty and the wonderful country we live in.
So that is the round up of November, December is upon us which means my birthday this week and getting all festive in preparation for Spencer’s first Christmas – I cannot wait!!! 🙂
