Julianne Hough Is the Next Blake With Her New Lifestyle Site
As if Blake Lively’s Preserve, Gwyneth Paltrow’s goop and Lauren Conrad’s budding web empire didn’t give us enough insight on how to live like our favorite covergirls in their everyday lives, another (blonde) celeb is stepping into the lifestyle website circle. And though it just launched this week, we are adding it to our daily reading list.
Former Dancing With the Stars pro and current judge, Julianne Hough, just launched her own site that centers around topics like health, love, home decor and style. With categories like that, girl knows just how to hook us in. Her reason behind launching the website is a little bit less “take over the world” than some of her competitors — she basically just wants to be one of our girlfriends. “I wanted to design a space where I could connect with you all and talk about the things I’m most passionate about, like staying healthy, recipes, style, home decor and friendship.” Cool, but when can we collab IRL, Jules?!
Already filled with an easy pizza recipe for a girls’ night in and beauty + hair hacks, the starlet’s website, topped with “Jules” — as her friends call her (so we are considered BFFs now?!) — is kicking off pretty cute.
To stand out from the celeb-site pack, the dancer should flex her expertise and include some fancy footwork insider tips. That, along with love and relationship content will help differentiate her site from the others. After all, we do get more than enough food moments from Blake and Gwyn. That’s your insider’s tip from us to break out in this crowded field, girl, show us the love!

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!
