Ciara’s Super Hero-Themed 30th Birthday Will Give You ALL the Halloween Inspo
Ciara’s surprise 30 birthday party definitely gives us new goals for milestone birthdays, not to mention for Halloween costumes. To celebrate a new decade, her NFL boyfriend Russell Wilson organized a Halloween-themed bash and invited Ciara’s closest friends and family.
Everyone looked amazing (especially the birthday girl in her Catwoman costume alongside her Batman boyfriend), but we also couldn’t take our eye off Beyoncé…
Queen Bey’s amazing Storm (from X-Men) costume makes us seriously question what we plan to wear this Halloween. For her debut as Storm, Beyoncé wore a white cape, platinum wig and icy contacts that glowed against her smoky eye shadow. To stay in character, she struck fierce poses in Instagram pics. Ready to exchange your costume yet?
Other party guests included Kelly Rowland, comedian Jeff Dye (yup, the dude in the photo with Bey) and Lily Collins, who also impressed with a Supergirl outfit and posed with the beautiful Ciara.
“Happy birthday to the most beautiful cat woman I know,” Lily wrote. “I adore your positive spirit, empowering soul and stunning heart @Ciara. Loved celebrating the Super Hero you.” What a great way to ring in 30.
What do you think of Beyoncé’s costume? Let us know 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!
