Q&A with Desiree # 2

Thursday, January 5, 2017

New year, same me... but if you want to find out more about me or my thoughts on different topics, then this will be a fun read for ya! I did a Q&A a while back here as well. Thanks for submitting the questions!

What are some budget items a guy can use to up his style?

My favourite accessory on men is a watch. It may not be the most "budget" item but you can definitely find lower cost watches that still have a lux look. Shoes are also an easy item to up one's style. Instead of runners, why not some boat shoes like Sperry's, sneakers like New Balance, or boots like Clark's? You can also up your style instantly with the tops you wear! Instead of hoodies and athletic wear, why not a nice sweater or a casual button up shirt?

What's your favourite winter activity?

My favourite winter activity is snowboarding, even though I'm still very new to it. Bunny hills for me!

What is your dream honeymoon destination?

Europe is my first choice! I've never stepped foot on European soil but I wish to go there one day and enjoy the sights with C.

What is your favourite way to relax?

I get cozy and warm in bed with a cup of tea and pull up my favourite movies to watch. Once I'm in bed, it's very hard to get me out haha.

How do you handle people you don't like?

I don't like conflict. If there's a person who I'm not too fond of, I tend to just stay clear and avoid having conversations with them. It's a habit that I'm trying to stop. I still act civil and respectful though.

What do you think of buying my glasses online? Is it worth?

Buying glasses online may be cheaper in monetary value, but you miss out on the important things to make your vision the best it can be. My job as an optician is to ensure that the glasses are the correct fit for you, take all necessary measurements to ensure sharpest vision, analyze your prescription and recommend the appropriate type of lenses, and do adjustments of the frame to fit you. When you buy online you're not able to try on the frames, you don't get properly measured for your lenses, you don't know which lenses would be suitable for your prescription, and you need to pay other opticals to do adjustments for you.

How did I meet the bf?

C and I met in university. We attended the same Christian fellowship as well. :)

What are three non-makeup beauty products that people need to have healthy skin?

You can get away with using one product: a facial moisturizer/cream to keep the skin hydrated. Other than that, drinking lots of water, getting enough sleep, and washing your face daily will also help you maintain healthy skin. Anybody can do those!

If you were to go a night club, which one would you choose?

Clubbing is not my thing so I don't have enough knowledge about that to answer haha.

What inspired you to start your blog?

To be honest, the blog came into existence at a boring office job when I had nothing to do. It was to help pass time each day at work. However, I began to develop a bigger interest in blogging because I realized it was my personal creative outlet to share my thoughts on different things that others may want to know as well. It could be beauty products, restaurants that I've tried, fashion inspo, information about the eye... really anything! I could stop writing anytime, but when people come up and tell me that they enjoy reading my posts, it means a lot! That also keeps me going with this little blog. :)

Help I'm stranded on a desert island but I still want to make sure I take care of my skin. What can I do in the wild that can keep me looking fresh?

Use fresh water to cleanse your face and find big leaves that can be used as shade to block your face from direct sunlight. That's what I can think of right now :P

Hope you enjoyed this post!

Until next time, Des
