Dormify and American Eagle Just Dropped the Most Irresistible Decor Collab
If there’s one thing that gets us excited about moving into a new place, it’s all the decorating potential. But, while there are a zillion new pieces we’d love to cram into our living spaces, our abodes tend to run smaller than our imaginations (read: apartments, dorm rooms, etc.). Dormify, AKA the company that sells pieces designed specifically for less-than-large areas, just dropped a new collection in collaboration with American Eagle, and it’s sure to liven up any bedroom.
The collection features three distinct bedding sets, complete with throws, pillows, sheets, and shams. While the bedding isn’t blatantly branded with the American Eagle logo, the designs *are* in line with the brand’s breezy, creative, cool aesthetic. (Just *look* at that pastel set!)
In case you’re not in the market for entirely new bedding, the collection also features some extremely rad throw pillows: think metallics, marble, and a glammed-up skull, all of which are guaranteed to spruce up any bed or chair. Lastly, the collab features two ridiculously cozy velvet-lined blankets (which are honestly essential no matter where you live).
The entire collection drops today, June 8 (just in time for grad season!) with prices ranging from $36 – $179. You can fill your virtual cart at ae.com or — if you’re near NYC — pop into American Eagle’s Union Square location. Because whether you have one bedroom or one *hundred* bedrooms, this launch is too darn cute to pass up.
Which of the new Dormify/American Eagle launches is your favorite? Let us know @BritandCo!
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!
