Send Us Photos of You and Your Boo, Win $500!!
Around here, we happen to love love. From hilarious DIY couples costumes to crazy creative proposal stories, we’re huge fans of celebrating love… especially in the form of a photo. Which brings us conveniently to the topic of today’s #winning giveaway ;) We’ve teamed up with Target Wedding Registry to bring you the 2nd Annual Be Yourself Together Contest!
Here are the deets:
1. Press the button below to upload up to 5 photos of you and your significant other that represent who you two are as a couple.
2. FIVE lucky winners will receive gift cards to Target! Grand prize is a $500 gift card and four runners up will win $100 each.
Now the question is: what exactly does being yourself together mean? Well, it’s different for everyone, but we’d be lying if we didn’t say the more creative, colorful and quirky, the better! We want to see how you celebrate your partnership, through selfies, silly poses and gorgeous landscapes. Here’s a whole smattering of snaps from the Brit + Co team to get you inspired.
Find a hot pink wall and make crazy shadows!
Selfies are always welcome, especially if you’ve got matching ski goggles ;)
Camera shy? Go for an artful shot of your feetsies — bonus points for colorful socks, duh.
You two… ROCK. #lolz
Alright alright, sufficiently inspired? Show us what you’ve got! To enter the contest, scroll back to the top and upload your photos! The contest runs from September 26, 2014 through November 1, 2014.
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!
