Amy Schumer + JLaw Are on Vacay Together and the Pics Are Epic
We don’t know about you guys but here at the Brit +Co office we’re feeling the Friday Eve Blues. I personally just put leftover Greek food on a bagel JUST TO FEEL ALIVE. It’s hard to get through the dregs of the week when Friday is so close you can taste it (and it tastes like leftover Greek food). In 48 or so hours you’ll be free to enjoy creative jello shots or take on a new weekend project or indulge in the best of all humankind’s creations: brunch. But for now you’re stuck at your desk and it’s still not even noon.
Amy posted a video on Instagram earlier this summer of her having a mini freak out when JLaw said her name on TV during an interview. Apparently the feeling of adoration was mutual because today Amy posted a pic of the two of them riding a jet ski somewhere tropical and beautiful.
Don’t look at this picture if you’re not ready for this jelly…
From the looks of the rest of Amy’s Instagram pics she’s on a wondrous lady vacation with the women in her life, likely celebrating the success of her movie Trainwreck. If you squint at this second pic you can see some of the writers from her show so hopefully this is some kind of creative lady plotting meeting and a year or so from now we’ll have the JLaw/ASchum buddy movie of our dreams.
Or maybe they’re brainstorming solutions to the Palestine conflict — we’re willing to believe this group of women could do ANYTHING together.
What are you and your girlfriends doing this weekend? Tell us in the comments!

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
