Sephora Spring VIB Sale!

img_4310

It’s that time of the year again, the Sephora VIB Sale is here! This sale is great for restocking your faves and must-haves, and also great to try more expensive products at a better price. The sale runs from April 20th-23rd!

I’ve broken up my favorites into categories to make it easier for you guys to shop. Let me know what your favorites are from Sephora and what you plan on purchasing, in the comments below!

ROUGE and VIB Members: 15% off  •  Beauty Insider Members: 10%

Everyday Skincare Routine

It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream

This cream has been a game changer for me. I use it as a night cream, and it has really helped with my dry skin in the winter. I love how thick and creamy it is, it feels so luxurious!

Fresh Soy Face Cleanser

I’m in LOVE with this cleanser. My skin is very picky when it comes to the products I use, but this cleanser is so gentle and makes my skin feel so smooth, soft and hydrated. I cannot recommend this product enough!

Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

I have been using this cream for about two years now and I have no plans on switching it out any time soon. I use it in the morning and sometimes at night during the summer, when I don’t need a heavy cream. It melts into your skin and doesn’t leave you feeling greasy.

Everyday Makeup Routine

Urban Decay Naked Basics Palette

This is the only palette I have ever repurchased. It’s perfect for every day and has all of the basic shades you could ever need. I love bringing this on trips because its small and easy to pack!

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Foundation

I got this foundation sent to me and if I’m honest, I don’t think I would’ve purchased it on my own. I had heard so many great things about it but I didn’t want to spend $43 on a foundation. But when I tried it, I completely fell in love. It’s full coverage, but feels super lightweight and silky and never looks cakey! It’s a very impressive foundation.

Beauty Blender

You guys know enough about beauty blenders! Now is the time to stock up if you use them every day, like I do!

My Top Picks

Bumble and Bumble Prêt-à-Powder

Hands down, best dry shampoo I have ever tried. I love how much volume it gives my hair, and it doesn’t leave a weird texture like some spray dry shampoos.

Kopari Coconut Melt

I use this on my legs every time I get out of the shower and I love how soft and smooth it makes them feel. It also helps if you have razor burn, and I love the smell!

Clinique Take The Day Off Cleansing Balm

I much prefer this product to take my makeup off, compared to makeup remover wipes or miceller waters. The balm is so gentle and hydrating, and removes your makeup very easily – no extra rubbing or pulling on your skin!

My Favorite Masks

Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

I use this every night when I go to sleep. It smells sooo good and when I wake up my lips are super soft!

Boscia Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask

I really like to use this mask when I feel like pampering myself. The charcoal helps to draw out impurities and firm your skin.

Glam Glow Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask

I love to use this mask as a spot treatment whenever I have any stubborn zits. I wear it overnight and by the next morning my breakouts are half the size.

Worth the Splurge

Ole Henriksen Truth Serum

This serum has been incredible for my skin. It’s pricy, but I think it’s important to invest in your skin care. Since I’ve been using it, my skin looks radiant, my pores are smaller and I’ve had less breakouts! It’s now a must have in my every day routine.

Peter Thomas Roth Water Drench Hyaluronic Cloud Hydra-Gel Eye Patches

These eye patches are great for reducing puffiness and dryness and getting rid of fine lines. I like to put them in the refrigerator so they’re extra cooling!

Fresh Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask

This mask really helps with uneven texture! I have some small acne scarring and this mask has really helped to smooth out my skin.

January 2018 Favorites

Helloo friends! I hope the New Year is treating you all well! Have you been keeping to your resolutions?? I love to read and watch bloggers monthly favorites, but I’ve never gotten around to sharing mine. When I finally remember to do them, its like the middle of the next month – oops. As you can tell I’m very organized.

So I’m going to attempt to do this every month this year and we’ll see how it goes! Let me know your monthly favorites in the comments below, I’m always looking for new things to try!

Beauty:

TULA Cleanser – This cleanser has been a life changer for me! Not to be dramatic, but it has done amazing things for my skin. My skin feels so smooth and soft, and I haven’t had any breakouts.

Essence Lash Extension Mascara – I have used this mascara almost every day the past month. It’s a one-step lash extension mascara, which I much prefer over the typical 3-step lash extension mascara. It makes my lashes so long and full, in no time! AND its only … $4.99.

Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette – This has been my go-to palette this month. It is the perfect everyday nude palette (and it smells like chocolate).

Batiste Dry Shampoo – Dry shampoo has been my saving grace, especially the Bastiste brand! My hair, just like my skin, tends to be on the oily side, and I’m training my hair, to not wash it every day. On those in between days I rely on dry shampoo to absorb the oils and give me volume!

Kopari Coconut Melt – was skeptical of this product, being that it’s simply coconut oil, with a higher price tag than you’ll find at the supermarket. However, I did my research and this product has done amazing things for my skin this winter. I use this every single time I shave my legs, after I get out of the shower, to prevent against razor burn and help with my inevitably dry skin.

Lifestyle:

Hello Fresh – My boyfriend and I have found a new obsession… and that is Hello Fresh. If you’ve never heard of Hello Fresh before it’s a meal kit delivery service, that sends you everything you need, pre portioned, fresh produce, to make your dinner from scratch. We love it because we aren’t wasting any food, we’re learning amazing, easy recipes and eating great!

The Crown – I started watching the Netflix show, The Crown, this month and I’m hooked! It’s a historical drama, about a young Queen Elizabeth II.

Almond Milk Creamer – Nestle Coffee-Mate, all natural, almond milk creamer. It tastes amazing, and it has much less sugar, and none of the “bad stuff” that you find in regular, sugar-heavy creamers.

SongsTequila by Dan and Shay, Let Me Go by Hailee Seinfeld, Tennessee Whiskey by Chris Stapleton.

Fashion:

Black Jeans – If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have noticed that I have been living in my American Eagle high-rise black jeans. They are SO comfortable, don’t stretch out, and they fit like a glove.

Black Booties – Another staple the past couple of months, have been my black booties from Steve Madden. They go with absolutely everything and they’re so comfortable.

Zara Suede Pants – If I could pick one word to describe these pants it would be – chic. They’re just cool!! I think they’re super unique, even though suede has been all over the place this year. They’re also really comfortable and only $40!

Rocksbox – If you follow my blog, or my Instagram, you know how much I have been loving Rocksbox. Who doesn’t love getting jewelry delivered to their doorstep every month!? To get your first set for free go to rocksbox.com and use the code: courtmorricexoxo at checkout! Month 1 | Month 2 | Month 3

What favorites have you been loving this month??

Holiday Gift Guide for Him

Holiday Gift Guide_ For Him

The holidays are right around the corner! I am going to be doing a gift guide series on the blog, and this is the first! My Holiday Gift Guide for Him is all the things I am going to be buying for the men in my life this year (don’t peek, you know who you are!). Doesn’t it always seem like buying for your dad, brother, bf, grandpa, is the most difficult! They never ask for anything (or want anything) and they always seem to have everything. I hope this will make holiday shopping a little less difficult!

1. Steve Madden x GQ Ted Cap Toe Boot

Leather combat-like boots are a big trend in menswear right now. These may not be for everyone, but they won’t be hard for your man to style!

2. JBL Flip 4 Splashproof Speaker

Portable and water-resistant. Great for the music loving men in your life!

These boots are great, my bf has a grey suede pair. They come in many different leather and suede variations.

5. MVMT Leather Strap Watch 40mm

I love Ray-Bans and this style looks great on every face shape!
