Your Fave Online Jewelry Store Is Going Into Wearable Tech
Wearable tech is all the rage now, and as they are growing more and more prevalent, more and more, consumers are unwilling to sacrifice style for convenience. We’ve got rings that light up when you’ve got a text message and a dress that was made with code debuted at NYFW this year. Even the pinnacle of the fashion world knows that technology and fashion are a match made in heaven. Recently, the Met Gala announced their theme for next year’s ball is “Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology” and named tech giant Apple as the sponsor. Today, fitness tracker makers Jawbone and online jewelry retailer BaubleBar have teamed up in the ultimate tech meets fashion collab. With a collection that is not short on style, this is wearable tech for all the fashion forward peeps who want to also be active about their health.
The collab features Jawbone’s inimitable UP MOVE activity tracker like you’ve never seen it before. BaubleBar has designed a complementary bracelet to go along with the tracker. It’s Jawbone’s first foray into the fashion world and BaubleBar’s first product in tech (they also just released their first home collection), so it’s exciting to see the two companies come together to do something unprecedented. The Jawbone x BaubleBar UP MOVE activity trackers will come in three different styles and several color combinations, as you can see from the picture above — stylish rose and yellow golds, rhinestones and leather straps in on-trend colors. Gorgeous. Prices also are super wallet friendly, ranging from $45 to $85. Holiday gift ideas, anyone?
The UP MOVE not only tracks your activity, but also your sleep, helps you log your foods and even provides tips on how to live a healthier lifestyle. Also, since it’s meant to go wherever you go, it’s water-resistant, helps you sync up with friends and family, helps you keep on top of goals and more. Thanks to its sleek new design, it’s also now a statement jewelry piece.
It definitely goes with that LBD, so wear it on your next night out and count how many dance steps you take ;)

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!
