Engagement Rumors Are Buzzing Around Gwyneth Paltrow
The holidays are certainly one of the most popular times of the year to get engaged. And though Gwyneth Paltrow may be helping us blow our budget and bring some of her luxe lifestyle to our own world with her 2016 GOOP gift guide, it looks like she might have something else on her mind. Taking us totally by surprise, rumors have just started buzzing that Gwyneth Paltrow may be engaged.
Though plenty of us still jump to Gwyn and her ex Chris Martin when we think of her relationships, 44-year-old Paltrow has in fact been in a long-term relationship with 45-year-old television producer Brad Falchuk since splitting (or rather, consciously uncoupling) from Martin back in 2014.

According to a source that spoke to the Sun, while attending a star-filled event celebrating Jay Z this past weekend, “Gwyneth had a huge rock on her wedding finger that caught a few people’s eyes.”
And that’s not all. “Later she was introducing Brad to someone he didn’t know and referred to him as her fiancé. She seemed totally loved-up.” Oh my!
Seen around town with Brad on Saturday looking totally casual and perfectly happy, it definitely looks like we might be seeing a GOOP-ish wedding soon enough.

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!
