Made Us Look: These Bendy Vases Will Never Break
Fresh flowers improve just about anything, but we feel a little like hoarders when it comes to the vase situation. Nobody needs 18 vases, right? However, this foldable Myvaz design by Modgy is a game changer for those of us who need to edit down our 1-800-Flowers collection and are looking to make the most of a small space.
These may look like a vase and act like a vase, but they are rather indestructible (no chips or broken glass!), recyclable + fold up nicely for storage when the flowers start to wilt.
Made from BPA-free plastic, these vibrantly colored gems might also work well for a wedding or event where you’re setting up dozens of centerpieces and don’t want to haul around all that extra weight. Bendy and beautiful, they just expand into shape when you need them to, like magic. It’s nuts. We’re still wondering what kind of wonderful witchcraft they are using to make ’em.

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!
