Happy MONDAY, friends. How ya holding up? It feels weird posting about sales or shopping or frivolous things with everything going on in the world, but as I find myself searching online for anything + everything that’s NOT scary news media (and as I hear from you that you’re doing the same), I figured some mindless online shopping would be a ~chill~ way to start this new week together.
Treat yo’self to a little somethin’ somethin’ you’ve had your eye on justbecause, and give yourself grace to turn off and hit reset before beginning anew again. If you’ve been feeling physically drained lately – you’re not alone. And you’re not crazy. Just keep giving yourself grace to get through this crazy time, and keep doing whatever you can to help flatten the curve and get everyone safe + healthy ASAP. OK? OK. Here’s what’s been goin’ down on the ‘gram lately, March’s Top Ten Bestselling items according to YOU, + some GREAT stuff on sale!
MARCH INSTAGRAM ROUNDUP:
MARCH’S PODCAST EPISODES:
1.) The Finish Line is a Fraud – with Amy Ogden – Amy moved from San Diego to NYC with nothing but 7 boxes and a dream. Could you do it? A senior VP at a luxury PR firm with a TEDx Talk under her belt, Amy has figured out a key life lesson: the finish line is a fraud. Today on THRIVE, we’re having a conversation about how to get off of the treadmill of life and focus on what really matters sooner rather than later.
2.) THRIVING in Quarantine: The COVID-19 Episode – The world is in uncharted territory since the spread of COVID-19, and with it has come the spread of fear, misinformation, and straight up panic. What can we do? What should we trust? In the midst of the madness, here are a few things you can take control of NOW to get out of sheer survival mode (literally) to get back to thriving – even in quarantine.
3.) Moms, Help Your Husbands More (Seriously!) – with Andy Shaw – Improv comedian, dad blogger extraordinaire, and new book author Andy Shaw is all about evening the playing field for parents – because dad isn’t a babysitter. Here’s how to have a productive conversation with your partner parent and gain confidence in your new role, so that you can truly thrive as mom and dad.
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!
2.) Colorfulkoala Leggings – These under $30 Amazon leggings are my fave Lululemon lookalikes – I literally mix them up with my real Lulu’s!
3.) Black Distressed Jeans – My FAVORITE pair of distressed black jeans – the distressing is subtle!
4.) White T-Shirt – GREAT affordable two-pack of basic tees.
5.) Abercrombie Parka – I KNOW, I KNOW…not parka season anymore. But my parka from this past season is on wild clearance now – literally half the price I bought mine at on Black Friday! It comes back each season from what I’ve seen but not at this low of a price until the season is OVER, so if you want one for NEXT winter already – snag one! (My mom bought one and was going to buy another because she loveloveloves it so much!)
7.) Caffeinate Your Soul: 52 Monday Mantras – MY BOOK! Go pre-order your copy now, girlfriend! (And of course, HUGE THANKYOU to everyone who has already grabbed one – I’m so so excited for you to see it IRL!)
8.) Dr. Scholl’s All Day Sneakers – The sneakers I wore all throughout Disney World – they’re SO INSANELY COMFORTABLE. The most comfortable. Could not recommend more.
10.) Soft Grey Amazon Joggers – SUCH a good steal – literally not even 15 bucks and they’re SO SOFT!!!! They nearly feel like Lululemon fabric, although they’re not the same snugger/compressed fabric that Lulu’s are. But 100% add to cart!
