Happy February 1st! I’m currently holed up at my kitchen island, staring out the window at a totally snowy abyss. Mentally bracing for the moment the OG declares she wants to build a snowman in it – ha! (And as luck would have it, she JUST ran over to me and said “Mommy, build snowman now?”). So I guess I’m off to go be the coolest (and coldest?) mom on the block. 😉 Here’s everything that happened in January on the ‘gram and on the podcast, as well as a few sales to not miss and all active discount codes I have for ya!
JANUARY’S INSTAGRAM ROUNDUP:
JANUARY’S PODCAST EPISODES:
1.) The Truth about Things that Suck – with Mindy Henderson – Mindy Henderson knows two things to be true: Things that suck, suck – but things that suck won’t suck forever. Today on THRIVE, she’s sharing her story and her reality of living most of her life in a wheelchair – and how her biggest adversity has become her biggest advantage. Mindy’s perspective is real and refreshing, and she shares actionable ways to check yourself for a victim mindset while getting through your own “things that suck” constructively.
2.) Just Hanging Out at the (Kitchen) Island on My Husband’s Birthday… – Happy Birthday to Erica’s husband, Jamie! In today’s special episode of THRIVE, E & J are at their kitchen island to answer a few rapid fire questions, as Jamie reflects on his last year and the new year ahead. A’ing Q’s like: “How do you make time for each other with a baby?” “What are your most and least favorite traits about each other?” “How did you know you were ready for kids?”
3.) On Investing in your STRENGTHS to Truly Thrive (+ 4 Lessons from a Certified Pinterest Expert) – with Tereza Toledo – Tereza Toledo is a lot of things.

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.) Amazon slippers – These poochies have been my #1 top seller for WEEKS now – they’re the best way to get the $85 UGG slipper look-for-less. They’re warmer, softer, and overall cozier than the UGGs – and they stay on your foot better, too. All for $60+ less, too – I have two pairs!
2.) Soma Enbliss wireless bra – The actual best bra of all time. It’s now a cult-classic AND a CURowd favorite. Over 4800 5-star reviews and loveloveloved by literally every single person I’ve ever see try it. I now own four! The best part? Even though it’s wireless, it’s still supporitve for ALL boob sizes (seriously!). I’m a B, and I got my best friend into it and she’s a D and it’s now her favorite bra, too! Super supportive, but you’ll forget you’re wearing a bra. Bonus points that it’s still BOGO 50% off on sale!
3.) Maybelline lippy – These are sold like hot cakes on CUR from when I blogged it as a drugstore option for the famous Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lipstick! The formula is GREAT – I have maybe 6 of them in different shades at this point, and Katie has a few, too. It’s a really longlasting formula without being drying, and applies SO easily – literally like lip balm.
4.) Red denim shorts – These cute red jean shorts are currently on sale for $5. FIVE FREAKING DOLLARS!!! Snatch a pair for spring/summer – I wear a small, which I would say is TTS to a 2/4!
5.) Colorfulkoala leggings – My absolute favorite Lululemon legging look-for-less option from Amazon. And y’all, I’ve tried them ALL.
6.) Tula Refresh kit – This kit of 3 full-size products was on sale for much of the month – you were able to grab it for $56 in total, which was a STEAL. So I’m glad so many of you took advantage of the deal!
7.) Acrylic song sign – The CURowd near sold-out this girl’s small sh0p when I shared our song sign from our first dance around the holidays, which made me SO happy – you know how much I lovelovelove supporting small shops! For only $20, it’s an adorable + sentimental keepsake, and you can get it made with ANY song/photo combo. Perfect for a commemorating a first dance, father/daughter or mother/son dance, or even just favorite moments with favorite songs and favorite people!
8.) Shampoo scalp massager – The feel of a salon shampoo/styling, for only $9 in the comfort (+ safety) of your own shower. Bless up.
10.) Crest whitestrips – I’ve been using these for years! They’re what I always have in my bathroom for a whiter, brighter smile. (Also use Crest whitening toothpaste!)
