1.) How to Successfully Switch Careers – with Fashion Designer turned True Crime Filmmaker Jia Wertz – If you’re already a fan of true crime podcasts or documentaries, you’re going to love today’s guest, Jia Wertz. And if you’re not but looking or hoping to make a career switch – even to a TOTALLY different industry than what you’re currently in – today’s episode is also for you. Jia is a fashion designer turned true crime filmmaker whose debut film, Conviction, was selected at 12 film festivals around the world, won 3 awards, and was released on Amazon Prime. After two DECADES in the fashion industry, Jia decided to follow her passion, go to film school, and pursue filmmaking to help shed light on wrongful convictions and the shortcomings of the criminal justice system. Today on THRIVE, she shares her step-by-step process for making a big career switch with practical advice for following your own dream, as well as tips for making authentic connections (since spoiler alert, she had ZERO in the film industry) and keeping the course after things seemingly go awry – like when literally ALL of her initial festival screenings got cancelled when COVID hit.  Besides now having an award-winning documentary, Jia is also a featured writer for Forbes, the co-host of the Speaking of Crime podcast, and the founder and fashion designer of Studio 15. 

2.) A Simple Posture & Small Movements to Change your Life – with Kate Boyle Today’s conversation is with classical ballerina turned Nutritionist, Food Scientist, pilates instructor and studio owner, Kate Boyle. Kate runs Mind and Movement Pilates in Melbourne, Australia, and she’s SO FREAKING KNOWLEDGEABLE about the human body and mind and what it physically takes to go from surviving to thriving. In today’s episode she shares about her survival mode past, how pilates eliminated her pain and changed her life, and some quick, actionable tips to start moving more and eating better RIGHT NOW without the overwhelm or stress. She ALSO walks us through a pilates posture so that you can improve your back, breathing, and really, your whole body DURING the show. Breathe easier & enjoy!

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 – My fave $24 pair that rivals the $85 UGGs – but I think they’re softer and stay on my feet better!

2.) Over-the-knee bootsThese are an awesome $50 dupe to this bestselling $159 pair

3.) Stretchy sweaterThis is my FAVORITE sweater this season – it’s so soft, stretchy, and fabulous. A dupe to a Free People sweater! On sale for $40 and 100% a steal. I bought two more and can’t recommend enough. Feels like a luxurious, $150+ sweater you’d find at Nordstrom! Here’s the other colorblock option I just grabbed, too.

4.) Maybelline lip crayonCurrently 28% off!!! A dupe to Charlotte Tilbury’s cult classic Pillow Talk lipstick.

5.) USB lighter – Such a cool alternative to a flameless lighter.

6.) LEGO coffee cup – Fun gift idea for the guys – especially any enginners!

7.) Sumblox – An AWESOME gift idea for kids learning to count or do basic math – it’s brilliant. LoveloveLOVE for Liv.

8.) Acrylic calendar – Our FAVORITE thing to keep our family in track. The best small shop find – an awesome housewarming gift, too!

9.) Sweater dress – This $32 sweater dress is an awesome chunky knit option.

10.) Downy Bliss – THE BEST STUFF EVER. Makes your laundry smell magical. Sells out everywhere – stock up!!!
