Current Obsession – Calligraphy

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

You know I love sharing my recent obsessions with you. This new obsession is something I’ve discovered through Instagram. I’ve fallen in love with watching calligraphy videos. I’m an artsy person but OMG I seriously don’t know how these artists write so beautifully. It’s honestly mesmerizing to watch. I sit on Instagram binge watching these videos and then all the sudden it’s an hour later. But I LOVE it! I’ll link my favorite account here. I highly recommend creeping on the page because they always tag the artists and give them credit for their work (which I really appreciate)! I’d love to try out calligraphy, until I remember how much of a perfectionist I am. I feel like I wouldn’t have the patience to practice my writing that much. What do you guys think? Should I give it a try?

What Apps Are On My Phone

What Apps Are On My Phone.PNG

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

I wanted to do a fun post today giving you a little look inside my phone and what apps I use daily. I love seeing what other people have and I hope you guys love it just as much! I won’t really touch base on the standard apps that come pre-installed on the phone because that’s boring and everyone has those.

Spotify

I don’t have my own personal Spotify account yet. I tried making an account to put my wedding playlist on but their system was messing up big time. I used my sister’s account (bless her soul) for the wedding playlist and haven’t gotten around to deleting the app yet.

Social Media – Facebook (Facebook Messenger), Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube

Because who, in this day and age, can go without these apps?

WordPress

I love using WordPress’ mobile app. It makes it so easy to post and interact with people on the go. I use my laptop to write my blogs but my phone for most everything else!

Pinterest

There is no other place to go for inspiration and motivation than Pinterest. I wanted to give app a special shout out because by the time you’re reading this, I should have Obsessive Compulsive Designer’s Pinterest account up and running! Be sure to follow it for more!

LinkedIn

For those who don’t know, I also have a full time job and so many opportunities happen from networking. LinkedIn is a great networking tool. I don’t spend much time on it but I always keep the app on my phone for when people want to connect

Amazon

My obsession. Amazon Prime is everything!

Bank App

Nothing special, but definitely a must. I’m one of those people who checks my accounts daily.

Best Fiends

I first heard of this game from Casey Holmes on Youtube a few months ago. I am SO addicted to games like this. I won’t go into detail, because I’m definitely a nerd when it comes to things like that, but you should definitely download it and give it a go. It’s free so why not?

Design Home

I just recently downloaded this app and I love it already. I’m an interior designer by profession so a game like this is right up my alley. It’s so interesting to me to see many of the vendors we carry on this app.

Google Calendar

Google Calendar is WAY better than the Calendar app that Apple has pre-installed on your phone. Google Calendar is how I keep my blogs organized, and really my life. I’m not big into writing on a physical calendar because I’m always moving stuff around and I hate the imperfection of eraser marks.

Little Moments

This is the major photo editing app I use for all my blog photos. All my photos go through the same filter and correcting. I love this app because you can select filters but choose how opaque you want them to be. I don’t like giving my pictures the over-edited look so this app is perfect.

Live Collage

This app I don’t use as often. I just use this app to put pictures in a collage or stack them. Other than that, I don’t touch this app.

 

I hope you enjoyed getting a peek into my phone. Let me know down below what apps you recommend. I would love to try out something new!

Favorite Instagram Fashion Divas

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

I love going to Pinterest to find fashion inspiration but sometimes it can often be overwhelming. There are always so many other things to look at that I find myself opting for Instagram. I wanted to take today to share with you some fashionably fabulous ladies that I personally love to follow. Many of these amazing ladies also have their own blogs and other social media platforms that they use to get their thoughts/ideas out there. I just wanted to focus on their gorgeous Instagram accounts today. (Mostly because their feeds are complete goals!)

Hollie Woodward

I love following Hollie not only because her feed is amazingly beautiful but her family is just too adorable. I love her style so much. I love the stylish momma mix that she really gives off.

Lauren Ashley Patao

Lauren’s laidback chic style gives me life. Her page gives me hope that I can dress up some comfier outfits with a few fashionable pieces to create the similar look. Lauren’s style seems like a very achievable style that I can incorporate with pieces from my own wardrobe.

Emily Ann Gemma

Emily’s photos are beyond amazing. I absolutely love the aesthetic of all her photos. (but I guess it would be hard to take less than beautiful pictures in Paris) Her hair is goals! Ugh, to have such long thick hair is all I want in life!

Lindsay Emow

champagne-and-blue-jeans-instagram-feed

I love Lindsay because of all the fashion bloggers I follow, she dresses down a little more. I’m in jeans most every day of my life so I love the more relaxed look that she channels. Plus, her blue Instagram theme gives me life since it blends with her branding.

Alyson Haley

alyson-haley-instagram-feed

Alyson’s page is so beautiful and I love the fact that she incorporates more than just fashion. Her outfits are absolutely amazing and such an inspiration.

 

I hope you enjoyed today’s post. Let me know down below what other fashion divas you like to follow!
