See the Gift Kanye West Just Sent Taylor Swift
Kanye West may not be good at censoring his feels (see: his 11-minute Video Vanguard acceptance speech at this year’s VMAs), but Yeezy is certainly good at sending ladies flowers. To celebrate her first Mother’s Day this past year, he gave wife Kim Kardashian “a couple thousand roses” scattered in vases across her hotel room. Today, Kanye sent another batch of blooms to fellow VIP (Very Important Pop Star), Taylor Swift. And as expected, she didn’t receive a typical bouquet.
The mesmerizing arrangement of hundreds of white flowers was totally vaseless, standing on its own with blooms bursting in all directions. Kind of like a mini version of the backdrop Kim and Kanye got married in front of. There’s no doubt that the flowers were gorgeous, but the piece itself made us scratch our heads. Why did it look so much like an ottoman? Was there cake under there, and since it’s that big, is someone going to pop out of there? Even though Taylor called it “the coolest” in her Instagram photo, she looks just as confused about the whole thing as we are.
Whether they’re official makeup flowers or a gift to celebrate Taylor’s place as a running mate in campaign #KanTay2020, we just want to know where the thing is gonna go after it leaves that folding table.

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!
