Gift a Unique Wooden Watch this Valentine’s Day!!

The holidays may be over but Valentines Day is right around the corner! For me, Valentines Day is all about reminding your loved ones just how much they mean to you. My favorite Valentines Day memories are when I’ve just spent quality time with the one I love. The gifts you give on Valentines Day should reflect that! The best gifts to both give and receive are unique and thoughtful.

JORD wood watches are the perfect unique gift to give this Valentines Day. I had never heard of wooden watches before being introduced to JORD, but what is more unique than a wooden watch!? JORD offers both men and women’s styles (check out all their styles here). The one I have pictured above is from their Frankie Series in Emerald and Dark Sandalwood. To make the gift even more special, you can engrave the watch for Valentines Day! JORD offers engraving on the backplate of the watch, or on the cedar box that your personalized watch comes in. Think of your favorite time spent together, or a special message they will cherish for a lifetime!

I am so excited to be partnering with JORD Wood Watches this Valentines Day for a giveaway! One lucky winner will receive a $100 coupon code to buy your very own wooden watch for that special someone. All entrants will receive 10% just for entering! All you have to do is go to https://www.jordwatches.com/g/courtcorinna. Giveaway closes January 28th at 11:59pm.

Currently Wearing: Velvet Bomber

img_0861-1

Hellooo friends! Happy 2018! I can’t believe how fast 2017 went by. I’m thinking of doing a post reflecting on 2017 and what I’m hoping for in 2018. Let me know in the comments below if that’s something you’d like to see!

Today I wanted to talk about this velvet bomber that I have been L O V I N G. This may actually be the first bomber jacket I’ve ever owned. I bought it during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale back in July. (Check out what I purchased, here!) It was my favorite item that I purchased from the sale, but also the one that was most out of my comfort zone. What stood out to me immediately was the color. I love the burnt orange, and that is has a little bit of shimmer.

The easiest way to style this jacket is by wearing all black, like a choose for this look. That keeps the jacket as the statement piece of the outfit. Surprisingly though, it goes with a lot of things! It’s super warm, but you can layer heavy sweaters underneath as well, or a thermal like I did. Or you could even layer a hoodie underneath, which would be really cute and make the outfit more casual.

I paired it with black jeans – can you tell that I’ve been living in these jeans the past few months? I feel like they’re all l I wear. They’re from American Eagle, you’ve seen me talk about them a bunch of million times – because they’re the best! You could also wear black heeled booties, instead of the grey ones I wore, for dinner or a night out.

If this post taught you anything, it’s to experiment with your wardrobe and go for things that catch your eye. Take it from me – it’s really fun.

Black is the new Black

Black on Black on Black

It’s been a while since I wrote about an outfit I’ve been loving. I’ve been super busy lately with the holiday season, and I just got back from vacation! Don’t forget to check out my Mexico Travel Diary if you haven’t already. I hope you all are enjoying the holiday season and having fun with all your holiday shopping!

I’m constantly trying to find and reinvent what I feel the best in. I love a pair of great fitting jeans, like these from American Eagle. They are high-waisted and have some distressing on the knees. Black jeans have been my go-to this season to dress up or dress down. These have been my most reached for jeans by far! Oh, AND they’re on sale for only $29 right now!!

This shirt is actually a tunic that I tucked in the front. I fell in love with the print, and the subtle gold stripes. I can’t find this top online unfortunately, it’s from LOFT. I’ve linked two very similar options below from Banana Republic. I recommend the oversized fit, and it looks great untucked with leggings, too!

The belt is what really brought this look together for me. It’s actually a belt that my mom had and didn’t wear anymore. I love the detailing on the buckle, and how the metal looks antiqued.

 

I have a fun coupon code for you guys, from my friends at Rocksbox! Use the code COURTMORRICEXOXO at checkout to get your first box of jewelry free! See what I got in my most recent box here.

Mexico Cruise Travel Diary!

Mexico2017 - 3Mexico2017 - 4Mexico2017 - 5Mexico2017 - 8

 I just got back from one of the most amazing vacations.

The bf and I just got back from a Royal Caribbean Cruise to Mexico! It was a 5-night cruise aboard the Independence of the Seas. We had so much fun on and off the ship. We have cruised multiple times before, but this was the biggest ship we had ever been on! There was a million different things to do – even a mini golf course, full basketball court, and ice skating rink on the ship!

Tips:

  1. Bring Dramamine or another anti-nausea medicine. This was our third cruise, and every time I’ve felt the boat rocking. This trip we felt the boat almost every night! Dramamine kicks in really quickly and helps with the dizziness and nausea.
  2. Buy the deluxe drink package. If you purchase the drink package before your trip, it’s $44/day. This includes unlimited alcoholic drinks, bottled water, and premium coffee. Trust me, it’s worth the piece of mind.
  3. Choose the later dinner time! You can usually choose to have dinner at 6 pm or 8 pm every night. While 8 pm may seem late, 6 o’clock is going to be way too early during the days your at the ports.

Mexico2017 - 14Mexico2017 - 15Mexico2017 - 19Mexico2017 - 20

Our first stop was Costa Maya, Mexico. Costa Maya is the port that was built near Tulum and Quintana Roo specifically to attract tourism. The port is really beautiful and has a beach and pool where you can spend the day, plus some shopping and restaurants. We had done a lot of research before hand and most people said that it’s best to find a beach club near the port to spend the day. The beach clubs are usually all-inclusive with one flat fee for the day. We made reservations at Almaplena Hotel Eco Beach Resort in Tulum. I HIGHLY recommend making reservations here if you’re looking for a secluded and relaxing beach day. The hotel is absolutely gorgeous and the beach is breathtaking! The staff make you feel like you’re the only people there, and are so welcoming. Pictures really don’t even do it justice! We spent the entire day there, just relaxing in our own private cabana. The staff brought over whatever we needed and let us know when our lunch was ready. For lunch, they provided a delicious 4-course meal, all included.

We loved the location and the hotel SO MUCH, we are considering planning another vacation and staying at Almaplena, our entire trip.

Tips:

  1. Make sure to make your reservation as early as you can, they only take 10 people per day! *They want to make sure they can give you the best service and experience.*
  2. The hotel is 20-25 minutes from the cruise port, and in the middle of the jungle. (Not a joke). Don’t be alarmed that you’ll be driving on a dusty, secluded back road for most of the trip.
  3. Bring snorkeling gear! There is an amazing reef not too far off shore. You can rent snorkeling gear from the hotel as well.

Our second stop was Cozumel, Mexico. The port in Cozumel is very different from the port in Costa Maya. The port in Cozumel is much older and there isn’t much to do other than shop. We took a cab to the center of town which offered more authentic shopping from local vendors. We stopped for lunch at Pancho’s Backyard Restaurant; they have THE BEST guacamole and beef taquitos. Cozumel is an island, but the beach was far from the port, so we went in search of a spot to get some drinks on the water.

We stumbled upon a little restaurant called Fratelli’s, to get some drinks. The water was so blue and tranquil! There are many different bars and beach clubs on the water between the port and center of town. Some require a reservation, and some require I set price for the beach club. Fratelli’s patio sat right on the water and was open air so you could enjoy the beautiful breeze. There is also a small beach next to the bar that you could swim in, and the staff will bring your drinks down to the water for you.

Tips:

  1. Bring small bills. Negotiating with cab drivers and street vendors is very common, make sure to bring lots of small bills so you don’t have to ask for change. *American dollars are accepted basically everywhere.*
  2. Most of the shops in the port only sell jewelry and touristy stuff. You can take a $7 taxi into the center of town where you will find authentic local treasures.
  3. DONT DRINK THE WATER – even if they say they use filtered water, it’s best to not get any drink with ice, frozen drinks or water unless it’s in a bottle. My boyfriend learned that the hard way this trip.

Rocksbox Review – 2nd Month!

I stumbled upon Rocksbox two months ago and I’m hooked! Rocksbox is a $21/month subscription box that will send you three pieces of jewelry every month. You can try them on and wear them as much as you’d like. Then buy the pieces you love and return the rest! The $21 subscription price will go towards the pieces you decide to keep. Being able to test them out at home with your jewelry and clothing is genius. I received my second box a couple of weeks ago and I’m having so much fun trying the pieces out. I just got back from a Royal Caribbean cruise TODAY and I brought all three pieces with me on my trip.

To see what I got in my box last month and more information about the boxes click here!

I wanted to try another pair of statement earrings since I’m just starting to experiment with changing up my earring game. I LOVE the Kendra Scott Renee gold earrings that I received in this box. They are very light weight and spice up any look. These are never a pair that I would pick out on my own, so I’m so glad I received them in this months box! My second piece is a dainty Rudiment Nopa gold ring. One thing you should know about me, I love rings. If I don’t have any rings on, I feel naked! I have been wearing the ring I received every single day, with my other rings and I adore it. I love that it’s dainty and has gorgeous stones on it. The last piece I received was the rose and quartz Fleur bracelet by Aster. This bracelet is really very pretty – I love the rose gold hardware on it. I unfortunately don’t think I’m going to be keeping this one because I don’t feel it is worth the price, but I have been wearing it almost every day!

To get your first set for free go to rocksbox.com and use the code: courtmorricexoxo at checkout! Keep checking back to see what I receive every month!

I hope this will make holiday shopping a little less difficult!
