‘Twas the day after Christmas, and all through the house, every credit card was burning – don’t tell my spouse! 😉 HA. I hope all of your Christmases were very merry and bright, focused on what really matters and the real reason for the season.
J and I visited all the fam yesterday, so it was a fun-filled day…and now the two of us are *still* in our Christmas jammies just catching up on our shows + getting some #werk done. We also had the talk yesterday about how much easier life would be if we stocked up on giftables all throughout the year instead of just in time for the holidays, especially since the two of us were scrambling a bit this year to get everything done on time. With both of our jobs just being particularly nutso this time o’ year, Christmas TOTALLY snuck up on us…whoops. I know Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Black Weekend, as I’ve dubbed it) are big for Christmas present-prepping, but honestly, I think even *better* sales happen right about now, in between Christmas and New Year’s. With Q4 closing out and the New Year comin’ in hot, ain’t nobody got time for leftover inventory, so everything that needs to be turned over before January 1st is on supersale, and the after Christmas sales are insane – #BlessUp.
I don’t think of CUR as a shopping/sales blog by any means, but I found myself clicking all over the web today in a Christmas cookie daze hunting out the best end-of-year deals…so it’d be a crime to not share ’em with y’all, amiright??? Everything is in ABC order, easy peasy for ya. 🙂

Pom Pom Sneakers (SO comfy – size up a half step!)
Shoutout to this cardigan again. I wore it in this post and have worn it for a week straight since. I was a bit nervous about what it would be like since it’s “one size fits all,” but I couldn’t have been more impressed. It’s soft, the perfect sleeve length for a stack o’ arm candy, SO versatile + trendy, and just that easy but chic cardi that you’ll be reaching for everyday. Plus it’s $30. *Praise hands*
I hope y’all had the most magical Christmases and are gearing up for one heckuvah New Year’s celebration! *pops bubbly*
Happy shopping, + happy end of 2016! Make it count, peeps.
