It’s approximately January 56th, so it’s high time to roundup the month’s happening from Instagram, share some bestselling items, + shop some sales! All active CUR-exclusive discount codes are at the end of the post, as well. Reminder to hug your loved ones extra tight tonight + this week + always. Next month isn’t guaranteed – heck, TOMORROW isn’t guaranteed. Every moment matters – make ’em count.

1.) 6 Questions to Ask Yourself as an Annual Review – It’s important to acknowledge + accept where we’ve been before we can plan where we’re going, so that’s what we’re doing now. Besides reflecting on my own 2o19, I wanted to share a few questions that I ask myself in doing my own “annual review” of sorts, so that you can do an annual review on your own to evaluate your year as holistically + comprehensively as possible.

2.) How to Be Your Happiest Self (REALLY!) – with Dr. Wendy O’ConnorLife, love, and the pursuit of happiness – can we truly have it all? In today’s episode of THRIVE, we’re having a conversation with Stanford-trained clinical psychologist, Dr. Wendy O’Connor, who uses Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Positive Psychology to treat stress management, anxiety and depression.



Top sellers are pulled from my analytics data, where I can see what YOU guys shopped + clicked the most all month long! No worries – it doesn’t tell me what all was in someone’s cart, or who bought what. ? But it’s helpful for me to see what’s most popular with the CURowd, and hopefully helpful/fun for YOU to see what fellow readers are shopping, too!

1.) Colorfulkoala Leggings – These are my FAVORITE Lululemon lookalikes to date! They’re not even 30 bucks on Amazon, and SO many of you have snagged ’em on my recommendation + fallen in lovelovelove, too. 100% worth it – I own 4 pairs!

2.) Lululemon Align Joggers – I own the real deal here but am on the hunt for a lesser-priced alternative, too. But they’re fabulous – they’re still snug around your booty to be flattering, but are looser in the leg like a jogger and banded at the bottom. A great option for non-leggings days!

3.) $22 Mom Jeans – My latest Target obsession. A truly fabulous pair of mom jeans – for $22. A steal!

4.) Barefoot Dreams Blanket – For 49% off still with just a few left!!! I stock up for gifts (+ for giveaways for you! Woo!) whenever they go on sale like this because they sell out FAST + it’s an unbeatable deal!

5.) Personalized Book Stack – We lovelovelove ours! It makes the best housewarming gift and/or gift when a new baby or pet is added to the family. The sweet shopowner passed along code ERICA10 for you to get a CUR-exclusive discount on your stack!

6.) Crest White Strips – These are the exact ones I use regularly to maintain a white, healthy smile! (Here’s my full blog post on when I first started using Crest Whitestrips!)

7.) Loft White T-Shirt – One of my go-to’s in my closet on repeat as a good basic. Everyone needs a basic white tee! I tested a bunch to find the best white t-shirt here and found some favorites…

8.) Pink Ruffle Dress – SO perfect for Valentine’s Day or an upcoming special event! Think date night, wedding, bridal or baby shower, the works!

9.) Tula Rose Glow & Get It Eye Balm – My daily staple! Is cooling, brightening, hydrating, AND the pink is also anti-aging! Code COMINGUPROSES will get you 20% off through February when all codes go down to 15% off, so snag one now if you’ve been on the fence!

10.) Liv’s Push Around Buggy – Hands down, Olivia’s favorite Christmas present from Santa. 😉 She squeals with pure joy + glee riding this thing around town. The best 40 bucks we’ve spent!



Abercrombie & Fitch – BOGO 50% off plus 25% off $125 or more with code 14994

Walmart – So many great rollbacks this week, including this IG fave hairdryer, jeans for under $13, these wire storage bins, Beats headphones, and this duster cardigan.
