1.) How to Maximize your Time AND Happiness – with Dr. Cassie Holmes – How do we invest the hours of our days so that we feel truly, deeply satisfied? Award-winning teacher and research and now bestselling author, Dr. Cassie Holmes unpacks exactly that today on THRIVE. As a top-rated professors at UCLA’s Anderson School of Management and the author of Forbes must-read of 2022, Happier Hour, Cassie’s work on the intersection of time and happiness has been widely published AND practiced, helping thousands and thousands of people ultimately feel BETTER about and happier with whatever time they’ve got. Today on THRIVE, she breaks down the difference being “time poor” versus “time affluent,” shares how to make those essential time-sucking “chore” tasks less of a happiness kill, and explains why having MORE time isn’t always the answer to more happiness.

2.) Overcoming Shame to Turn your Pain into your Power – with Christine Errico – Christine Errico knew no “easy” life. Born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, she was bullied torturously throughout school, experienced an abusive marriage, struggled with substance abuse, and endured years of being told she would never amount to anything, and that her facial difference meant she was also mentally challenged. Today, many years and over 20 surgeries later, Christine is an advocate for the cleft community, working with Smile Train to help strengthen global communications and the cleft community in the United States. She’s also a college professor with a PhD in accounting and owns multiple businesses, with a never-give-up attitude. Christine’s resilience, strength and perspective is refreshing and inspiring; in this episode she shares confidence boosting tips and her favorite ways to find hope when facing one obstacle after another.

3.) How to Best Help a Grieving Friend – with Erin Zimmerman – Grief can be the strangest thing – we never grow beyond it, just around it. It comes and goes like waves and can hit at the most unexpected moment, and it can feel impossibly hard to navigate. Erin Zimmerman has experienced more than her fair share of loss so far in life, and she’s collected many invaluable coping mechanisms along the way – including real ways to best help grieving girlfriends. If you’re walking side by side along friends or family members in times of loss (or finding yourself in unchartered, grieving waters), keep Erin’s advice bookmarked in your brain!


Top sellers are pulled from my analytics data, where I can see what YOU guys shopped + clicked the most all month long!

3.) Maybelline lippy – One of my favorite drugstore lippy formulas for it’s non-drying longwear and easy application.
