Katie here…can someone tell me who let it be almost AUGUST??? This year has gone by so incredibly fast, too fast. Let’s hop right into July’s Instagram Roundup sharing all that happened on IG, this month’s THRIVE podcast episode (which are, in my opinion, some of the best yet), + some fun sales.

1.) How to Hustle like a Mother: Talking Work-at-Home Mom Life – with Taylor Mobley – From an infertility diagnosis to a miracle baby, and from barely surviving to thriving as a business owner to boot, Taylor Mobley knows how to hustle like a mother. Tune into Erica’s candid conversation with her best friend on what navigating work-at-home mom life really looks like (because hint: it’s not what Instagram shows), and what tools and tricks helped Taylor learn to give herself grace through it all.

2.) Change Your Mind, Change Your Life – with Courtney Nicole Davis – After years of being in an abusive relationship and gaining 150+ pounds, Courtney Davis changed her mind about herself and went on a massive weight loss journey to join a bikini body-building competition. After being in a horrific car crash, she manifested a new dream car. And after having NO external symptoms, she just received a life-changing medical diagnosis – but she’s not simply surviving, she’s thriving. Join us as we talk all about mastering your own mindset, what a healthy mindset practice looks like, how to manifest anything, and how to truly change your life by changing your mind.

3.) Interracial, Intercultural Love, and Becoming a Thriving Ally for the Black Community – with Paidiwanashe and Christina Mushayamunda Pai and Christina Mushayamunda have felt the sideways stares and double looks of racism, being an intercultural and interracial couple in Tennessee. But they’re fighting the good fight and using righteous anger to help make right and make change to systemic racism in America. The married hosts of The Culture Talk Collective are here to talk about what racial reconciliation REALLY looks like, what it means to lament, and how to become a thriving ally for the Black Community.

4.) How to Manage Stress & Increase Productivity – with Stephanie BerrymanFeeling stressed?. Leadership coach, consultant, and Amazon best-selling author, Stephanie Berryman, knows a thing or two about stress management. She’s taking THRIVE listeners through some of her favorite secrets, tricks, and techniques from her latest book, Working Well: 12 Simple Strategies to Manage Stress & Increase Productivity. Listen in as Stephanie shares actionable strategies + surprising statistics on how our bodies react to stress, the role habits play (for better or worse), and how to boost productivity without boosting stress levels.



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.) Better-than-a-Yeti Tumbler – Around $20 on Amazon. Keeps your hot drinks hot and your cold drinks cold. AND it doesn’t leak. 

2.) UGG Lookalike Slippers – Another Amazon find – more comfortable than UGG’s version for a faction of the cost.

3.) Lululemon Align Pants – Always a classic. Worth the splurge!

4.) AE ShortsLOVELOVELOVE AE denim shorts. Comfy, doesn’t ride up giving you uncomfortable wedgies anywhere..HA. Size up one for the best fit.

5.) Target Fleece Set + Shorts – One of my latest Target finds for work-from-home days. This set will take you from the comfort of AC through fall. Super soft + cozy. 

6.) Tula Glow Hour Eye Balm – SOEXCITED for this influencer collab with Tula. Courtney Shields launched her version of Tula’s eye balm. It is meant to COVER dark under eye circles, prevent them, + it protects from blue light (that harmful light emitted from our phones + computers!). Use code: COMINGUPROSES for 15% off + free shipping (on purchases over $40).

7.) Victoria Emerson Wrap Bracelets – These bracelets are stylish + DURABLE – Olivia has pulled, chewed on, etc. on these bracelets and they have stood the test! So easy to amp up your outfit with these wrap bracelets.

8.) Maybelline Super Stay Matte Ink CrayonNear identical product in color + quality to the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk lipstick…but for around $7 instead of $34.

9.) Walmart Black Overalls – Shared these overalls on stories a few days ago – OBSESSED. Only $12!
