For Immediate Download: Hipster Emoji Are Here
On the list of things you should do right now: 1. Drink more water. 2. Probably get back to work. 3. Immediately download the Hipmoji app. Hipmoji was released this month with a single goal in mind — to provide the world with all the hippest hipster emoji. And between old-timey facial hair and wayfarers, we think they nailed it.
Already we can think of at least 23,947,829 distinct situations we wish we had been able to throw out a Pharrell hat emoji. The PBR says everything we haven’t been able to put into words before. And the bubble tea just makes us thirsty, and happy that we no longer have to type out “bubble tea” anymore.
Version 1.0 of Hipmoji includes some awesome editing tools as well, so you can upload photos and insert emoji as pic overlays. They’re planning on adding new, purchasable icons with later updates. Come DL it, Bae.

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!
