Anjou Essential Oil Review


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

Essential oil diffusers are a huge trend that is seen everywhere nowadays. And for good reason! I just finished up my large sample pack that I ordered along with my diffuser. I purchased my diffuser around Christmas last year and use it religiously! It’s become a HUGE part of my night routine. I find it so relaxing and helps me sleep so much better. I’ve recently started bringing my diffuser out into my living room to keep the good vibes and relaxing scents going all day! I may to purchase another solely for the living room so I don’t have to keep moving it around so much.

I have nothing but good things to say about the Anjou diffuser I purchased and, consequently, the same goes for their oils. I have been loving their line. I just repurchased the same sample pack that came with my diffuser from Amazon. I used up every single oil and loved each and every one. I’ll leave a link here to a post where I tell you my favorite essential oil combinations so you can give these a try if you buy this pack. Like I said earlier, I got this same pack about six months ago and just recently ran through it all. I’d say that’s a pretty good life span for these oils for being used all night every night! I’m eager to break into my next sample pack and to branch out in the future and try out other oils.

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?

March Lifestyle & Beauty Favs

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

March was a very busy month and feeling under the weather most of the month definitely was not how I would’ve preferred the month to go. But you always have to make the best of your situation so that is exactly what I did! Some of my favorites definitely helped my sicky-self get through the month. If you’re finding yourself in a similar situation to mine, keep on reading and see how I survived the month!

Samsung Tablet

I’m on my phone all day and sometimes I like to switch up my devices, especially for the silly little games I like to wind down with. I’ve been loving our new tablet and in particular Cookie Jam. It’s another knock off Candy Crush that is unbelievably addicting. My husband makes fun of me every time but I love it!

Lavanilla Deodorant

I recently hauled this and I’m really loving it. I’ll be writing an in depth review and explanation why I switch to a more natural product so keep your eyes peeled for that.

Silver Earrings

These gorgeous earrings were a gift from my boss that she got on her recent trip to Mexico. I’m in love with these earrings because they make sure a bold statement without being overly heavy.

Throat Coat Tea

If you read my How To Beat A Nasty Cold By Drinking blog, then you know all about this bad boy. It’s my ultimate go to when I’m recovering from a cold. It tastes absolutely amazing and really helps ease your throat. I highly recommend trying it out!

Sephora Honey Sugar Lip Scrub, Carmex, NYX Lip Lingerie

These three products in that order has been a life saver to helping me look more put together during my sick days. Whenever I get sick, my lips really take a toll and it shows! This lip scrub helps prep my lips for lipstick and I’m loving these.

Plaid Scarf

I’m loving this scarf for this time of year with the lighter pastel colors. The fabric is so soft and warm which is a must with these awfully cold and rainy days. But the colors channel a spring time vibe. I love this for the transitioning seasons.
