Best Purchases of 2016

SHOP THE POST:


2017 is upon us and I, for one, am ready for it! I know a lot of people poo pooed on 2016, but it was one of the best years of my life. I got engaged to the love of my life, took some amazing trips – Jamaica, Cozumel, Spain, Big Sur, Blowing Rock, Charleston, San Fransisco, Disney World, Beaufort, Asheville, and more! I went sky diving for the first time, climbed a waterfall, played with baby tigers, got to see my man post the most top-10 finishes of his career, and all the while got to grow this blog that is such a passion of mine! I want to thank y’all so much for stopping by my corner of the web and continue to follow along, it means so much to me 🙂

As a HUGE proponent of investing in classic pieces and saving money on trends, I wanted to share with y’all my favorite purchases of 2016 – these are items I wore/used regularly throughout 2016 and will throughout 2017 and beyond. Just click on the title of each piece to shop! I’ll follow up with the items I have my eye on for 2017 next week.

OUTFIT DETAILS:

Cleanser: Tula / Self-Tanner: St. Tropez / Primer: Smashbox / CC Cream: Chanel / Counter Palette: Kat Von D / Makeup Setting Spray: Urban Decay


One of the most fun parts of blogging is getting the opportunity to try new products. There have been hits and misses, but I wanted to share the products that hit the nail on the head. From cleanser to self-tanner to makeup, I use these every single day and literally can’t live without them. I use almost entirely drugstore products for my eye makeup (you can read all about that here), but when it comes to my face I truly invest in it. Some of these products are a bit on the pricier side, but I promise you get what you pay for.

OUTFIT DETAILS:

Lips: Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lip Color in Devotion (pink color) and Embrace (nude color) / Eyeliner: L’Oreal Infallible Eyeliner in Carbon Black / Liquid Eyeliner: L’Oreal Lineur Intense / Eyebrow Pencil: Rimmel Professional Eyebrow Pencil / Primer: L’Oreal Voluminous Primer / Mascara: L’Oreal Telescopic in Carbon Black / Setting Spray: NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray


I wanted to walk y’all through my every day makeup routine and share what products I use that don’t break the bank. When it comes to makeup, I love to experiment and regularly try new products. But there are a few that I use religiously and SHOCKER, they’re all drugstore products! When it comes to my face, I do splurge. (I swear by this primer and this contour palette) But after trying so many different eye and lip products, I find my favorites at the local drugstore.

Ever since I started wearing my Bellami Hair Extensions, I have received a number of questions about them and thought I’d answer them all with a Q&A! I want to start by saying that these are my genuine beliefs about this product and this isn’t a sponsored post. I am not an expert on extensions, but I have tried many in the past and personally feel that these are the ones I would recommend… I can even offer y’all $5 off with code courtneyd!
