Summer Picnic Essentials

IMG_0351 via Pinterest
Summer is the season to be outside, and one thing that I want to do by the end is to have another picnic! It's about time I do some spontaneous al fresco dining and enjoy the beautiful weather.

There are a few things that I need to make this picnic happen, and I can find them at! Wayfair is an online site that sells all things for the home, from couches to BBQ grills, light fixtures to window blinds, and everything in between. C and I have purchased several items for our home from Wayfair, so it was also very easy for me to find these three must have items on the site that would make my picnic doable: 

food storage

You're going to need to store your food and snacks to bring along with you! This set of food storage containers makes it easy to package everything separately and prevent any spillage from happening with the snap on lids. 

picnic baskets and backpacks

A picnic is not complete without the classic basket and blanket! This set makes it so convenient as it comes with dinnerware and glasses for four along with the blanket. The wicker basket is so cute with the leather closure straps too. No need to scavenge for all these things separately as they all pack away neatly into the basket when you're not using it.

insulated picnic baskets

To keep any snacks and drinks chilled when needed, this collapsible cooler basket would do the job. We don't want the food going bad! I recently discovered the Jacob's Creek Rose Moscato from a dear friend on a recent trip and I would definitely want to keep that chilled inside this basket.

Once I have these items, then I'll be set to have my picnic! Thank you Wayfair for inviting me to participate in this campaign, and for making it simple to find everything I need on your site!

Until next time, Des

Wedding Wednesday: Curated Skincare Routine

#happilyeverpong is only 5 months away! I wish time would pass by faster, but for now I need to continue prepping my skin so that it’s the best that it can be for the big day. I got help from my dear friend Christine, who is also a Sephora Senior Skincare Advisor, to curate an updated skincare routine for me with the bunch of products I already had.

Eye Post #13: My Eyewear Collection + Giveaway!

After many MANY questions about it and requests, today's post is of my eyewear collection! I'm thankful and grateful for the perks that come with my job, which has definitely contributed to my growing collection. I am by no means showing off or bragging about what I have, but I'm posting purely because many have asked about the different eyewear I have so I thought this would be a fun way to show the pieces. Stay tuned for a giveaway at the end of the post! :D

Let's start off with my eyeglasses!

The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid

For the skincare loving people out there, I'm sure you've heard of The Ordinary: a line of affordable, to-the-point skincare by Deciem. All their products highlight the main ingredient in each product. Something new I've added to my winter skincare routine is this The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid 2% + B5 to help me combat my drier skin and add some much needed moisture.

Wedding Wednesday: Engagement Photos

Hey y'all! Many of you have asked to see my engagement photos with C, and we're delighted to share them with you today on the blog! A big shoutout to our talented photographer Cari Zhu (@carizhuphoto on Instagram, who was so accomodating with our late arrival at Scarborough Bluffs (we were trying to find parking on the day that the whole world also decided to go haha) and captured us so beautifully despite us being awkward turtles in front of the camera!
