Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

My lip collection isn’t too big and there’s a very good reason for it. I don’t wear too many different shades! As you’ll be able to see from my swatches, I either go dark and sultry or extremely nude. I don’t have much of an in between. My everyday go-to lip color is of course the nudes. I only break out the dark or red shades for special events! My current favorite right now is this NYX Lip Lingerie in the shade Push-Up. They have a great formula and I’m planning on getting some more shades here soon.

Beach-side Drinks

Top (similar) : Forever 21   |  Shorts : Charlotte Russe  |  Shoes  : Poshmark  |

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

Really wish I could be spending this Memorial Day weekend enjoying drinks out over the open ocean but these memories will have to suffice! I could think of no better outfit for exploring the resort than an off the shoulder cropped top and some denim shorts. Both pieces allow you to wear your swimsuit inconspicuously underneath without taking away from the outfit. I love this top and it has been in my wardrobe arsenal for years. It was originally from Victoria’s Secret and it has held up through the years beautifully. I’ll link a similar one in this post.

Stripes & Sangria

Top : Charlotte Russe   |  Jeans : Target  |  Shoes  : Poshmark  |

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

Writing this post is hitting me right in the feels. I’m missing that gorgeous Jamaican weather and the beautiful breeze! My skin is definitely missing the sun as well. I feel like we have been under one big giant cloud here in the Midwest for the past two weeks…ugh. But, on a higher note, this was one of my favorite outfits of the trip and I’m very excited to show it to you today!

This top was my first new purchase for the trip and I fell in absolute love with it as soon as I saw it. It just screams the need to be on a boat in the tropics to me. I paired it with simple white shorts and these adorable Michael Kors sandals. (I won’t even try and be boujee with that, they came from TJ Maxx. No shame!) It was the perfect outfit to start off our vacation and so comfortable too. It was nice to have something flowy after a long day of cramped flights the day before. Now that we are back in the states, I’ll definitely be breaking out this little number more often!

Paradise In A Post

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

On Wednesday, I told you all that my husband and I recently just got back from Jamaica. (Yes, it has been a tough transition back to reality.) And I don’t want to hold you in suspense any longer. Take a peek into our gorgeous trip to Sandal’s Whitehouse. And don’t you worry, outfit posts will come very soon!

Wedding Wednesday – Honeymooners Paradise

Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.

For those who may not know, I just recently got back from my honeymoon; so, it’s been quite a while since I’ve sat down and written a post for you guys. I hope you all enjoyed the working girl mini-series last week while I was away! I sure had fun writing those posts for you all and I received so many wonderful comments and reactions to them. You make me feel so loved! 🙂


Speaking of love, I wanted to start kicking off all of my honeymoon posts today with a lovey post about our accommodations. (You know I wouldn’t visit a beautiful place and not take excessive amounts of pictures!) We went down to Jamaica to stay at one of Sandal’s gorgeous resorts, South Coast aka Whitehouse. We had an amazing time and the views were amazing no matter where you looked. More on that later, I wanted to dedicate this post to those brides to be out there researching various honeymoon locations. I knew we were going to have an amazing time; but, after visiting, I can officially say that Sandal’s knows how to treat their honeymooners right!


Upon arrival, Sandal’s makes sure you feel welcome and get a jump start on your relaxation (with help of champagne). Everyone gets a glass while you check in; but, after settling into our suite, a lovely butler brought a complimentary bottle of champagne and champagne flutes to our room for us to enjoy at our leisure. And enjoy we did! It’s hard not to enjoy while looking out at an amazing view! Later in the week, they left us a cute little package with a handwritten note from the manager congratulating us on our honeymoon, a sweet little door sign, and a form for a complimentary room service breakfast. (Which was much needed on a rainy morning towards the end of the trip!) It was such a sweet little gift and the handwritten note definitely meant a lot!


For those honeymooners that want to avoid the hustle and bustle of the Caribbean, I highly recommend the month of May as it seemed to be more deserted than I had anticipated. It made for a perfectly intimate honeymoon without being completely isolated. After going to an all-inclusive resort, I don’t see us traveling any other way ever again. It was so nice to just walk around without worrying about cost or if we brought enough cash with us. It was such a great time and I highly recommend Sandal’s Whitehouse to all looking for a nice getaway! Even if you think it’s going to be too much money, I recommend contacting a good travel agent in your area and have them look into it. I’ll leave a link here for a past post explaining the benefits of booking through a travel agent. You won’t want to miss it! I think you’ll be surprised at the kind of rates they can get you.
