The January CURoundup: Podcasts, Top 10 Bestsellers, + Sales!

Katie here coming in from snowy, snowy New Jersey while Erica is in a beautiful, warm, tropical sunny place. No, I’m not jealous. I’ll just be living vicariously through her IG stories, as should you 😉 It’s that time of the month again where we drop in with a roundup of all this past month’s goodies! Stay warm, friends!

1.) Real Goal-Setting Tips you Need Right Now – with Taylor Mobley – HAPPY NEW YEAR! In our first episode of 2022, I’m talking GOAL SETTING with none other than my best friend, Taylor – a fellow content creator, podcaster, and goal getting Enneagram 3. Since we’ve had many a FaceTime planning our own years and setting our own goals together, we put our heads together to share our best tips for better, more effective goal setting with you after our combined YEARS of process refinement. Part 1 of this conversation is right here on Thrive, and we’re breaking down SMART goals, micro versus macro goals, process versus outcome based goals, and our own personal goal setting processes. Then, be sure to hop on over to Taylor’s podcast,Hustle like a Mother, for Part 2, where we’re talking about goal disappointment, how to adjust your sails along your journey, and top tips for hitting the ground running towards your goals more confidently, peacefully, and SMARTLY than ever before.

2.) The Mindset Shift & Resilience Kick you Need for the New Year – with Beate Sifkovits – My friend Beate Sifkovits is an award-winning mindset and resilience coach, the founder of “ALL BOSS,” and the creator of the “Passion-Driven Business Blueprint.” After spending over 15 years on self-discovery, my Beate Sifkovits decided to leave corporate to pursue her passion full time, to empower women to do what they love for a living. She’s an awesome force – award-winning mindset and resilience coach, founder of “ALL BOSS,” and creator of the “Passion-Driven Business Blueprint” – and our conversation today will leave you feeling motivated to create some serious change in your life. You’ll end the episode feeling more clear on a vision for your future, and more confident on your own ability to handle WHATEVER life hands you. You might actually feel more okay with uncertainty than ever before, with a healthily detached, neutral view of life events or circumstances that might’ve previously stressed you the heck out.

3.) How Positive Affirmations Really Work (+ How to Connect them to SCENT!!) – with Beth Geddio – After starting a live events business right before the pandemic, Beth Geddio’s life and plan turned upside down, and she pressed pause to pray and pivot. She landed on the most incredible brand and business called State of Being Co., making positive affirmation candles that literally uplift and change your own state of being by tapping into the physiological power of your sense of smell. Today on THRIVE, Beth pulls back the curtain like we’ve never had before to share a behind-the-scenes look at what it really looks like being a start up CEO. And she also breaks down how and why positive affirmations actually work, and how to intentionally craft your own to include in your daily routines that really resonate and really work. Beth so kindly passed along discount code ERICA15 to get 15% off your State of Being order – the best discount she’s ever done!!! THANKYOU FOR SUPPORTING HER SMALL BUSINESS!

4.) Lifestyle Architecture for Entrepreneurial Moms: Setting Boundaries, Creating Systems, & Intentionally Scheduling – with Lydia Benham – As a mom to 2 under 3 working insane consulting hours, Lydia Benham knew how it felt to be burnt out and unhappy on approximately all levels. She overhauled and outsourced, and is now in a place of comfort and confidence with great boundaries, smooth scheduling, and a household running like a well-oiled machine – and today, she’s helping you do the same. Today on THRIVE, Lydia – who cofounded Whole Modern Parent – shares really practical advice on determining family values, setting appropriate boundaries, outsourcing certain tasks, and creating an intentional schedule in a no bullshit, sugarcoat-free style.


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 sweaterYou know it must be a good sweater when someone owns FIVE versions of it, right?

2.) Colorfulkoala leggings – A great legging option if you’re looking for a similar product to the Lululemon Align leggings! Under $30.

3.) Amazon slippers – Always a bestseller around these rosy parts. I can confirm that these are great even in comparision to the $80+ UGG slippers. These stay on my feet (even when going up the stairs, HA!), provide better support than my UGG slippers, and all around more comfortable. 10/10 recommend.

4.) Miss Mouth’s stain remover spray – Erica says this is a must-have mama product. BRB, adding to cart.

5.) Two tone Amazon sweater – How cute is this to shake it up a bit for Valentine’s Day? 

6.) Maybelline lip crayon – Whenever I’m looking to throw some color on my lips, these are my go-to. I never really wore lipstick or anything of the sort because I can never get it to stay. Food, drink, conversations, what have you…these STAY. 

7.) Striped midi dress – A perfect transitional dress to bring you from winter to spring! Pair it with a denim jacket and some cute sneakers.

8.) UGG boot lookalike – These boots are a more affordable option to the UGG mini boots – added bonus for the memory foam support!

9.) P448 John sneaker – A designer lookalike sneaker to the Golden Goose sneakers!

10.) Time and Tru star sneaker – Another Golden Goose lookalike for under $25.
