At Home Energizing Cold Brew – Dairy Free!

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

There have been many more late nights and heavily packed days lately than I’d like to admit. So many, in fact, that my usual caffeinated tea has not been up to the task. I’d find myself needing multiple just to get through the work day. So, I decided to try this cold brew from a recommendation from some family members. I’m super glad that I gave this a go because it has really saved my mornings!

I’m in love with this cold brew and one of the best parts is that it’s dairy free! I love almond milk and prefer it to milk. Which may be weird but I absolutely hate the taste of milk (barf!); but, I’m too much of a weenie to drink my coffee black. So, I always mixed my black coffee with almond milk. This Califia Farms Cold Brew Coffee comes in a few different flavors that really trick my brain into thinking I stopped at my local Starbucks. This not only saves me money but time! I love having a little more interesting added to my coffee than just the plain old. My favorite flavor this brand carries is probably the mocha. I can find this product easily at either Target or my local grocery store in the organic section.

Try Something Fun! Lately I have been mixing a cup or so of this with my protein shake in the morning. It tastes amazing and kills two birds with one stone! I highly recommend trying it out!

Hitting Pan On Some Favorites


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

It’s that time again to run through some products of mine that I have used up. This time around is a lot of hair care products. Mostly because I’ve got some seriously thick and long hair. My hair eats up anything I put into it like it’s nothing! As you can tell, I’m a loyal Batiste customer. I’m always on the lookout for something new to try so I’d love for you to leave me some suggestions below.

This time, my empties consist of some real tried and true staples in my beauty collection. I’ve loved all of these and repurchased them all again. This is definitely the post to check out if you’re in the market for anything new.

Batiste Dry Shampoo

I haven’t tried a Batiste dry shampoo that I haven’t loved but I’m a sucker for the Divine Dark shade. It works just as well as the others and masks the typical dry shampoo “dust” with a hint of my brunette hair color. Really great!

OGX Coconut Milk Shampoo

Yeah, I’ve run through a huge bottle of this. Since I go 3-4 days between washing my hair, I like to double up when I do wash it. I find giving it a double dose of shampoo really cleans my hair well. This coconut milk shampoo feels great on my hair. Shampoo naturally strips the oils from your hair, good and bad, but this shampoo doesn’t dry my hair out at all. I’ve purchased another large bottle of this already!

Lush Retread

Cannot think of a better hair mask. I really can’t! I have yet to come across another moisturizing mask that can beat this product. I live by this! Click here to read my full review on this product!

Jergens Natural Glow

For all the pale girls out there like me who have the worst time getting a natural tan. I highly recommend this natural tanner. It’ll save your skin from the harsh sun rays but will give your skin the glowing radiance of beautifully tanned skin.

Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray

Ever since I tried this out last year, I’ve been HOOKED! I don’t go a day without using it. It really does keep my makeup in place and helps my face stay in place throughout the day! Click here to read my review of this product!

Too Faced Born This Way Foundation

I’ve done a full out review of this product so I won’t waste your time. Click here to read my review. Just know, you’ll be hooked after trying it!
