Renters, Rejoice! These Cuddly Pets Are Allowed in *Every* Building
We’re well acquainted with this renter’s nightmare: You find the perfect apartment, in the perfect neighborhood, with the perfect backyard, but there’s just one catch: No pets allowed. NO. PETS. ALLOWED. How are we supposed to EXIST without a furry friend? What’s life even like without having your bestie be an animal? Why do we even choose to live with other two-legged creatures, anyway?
These bewitching pillows are customizable. That’s right, you can choose the EXACT species, breed and adorableness of your animal. Plus, they’re terrific snuggle buddies, they won’t shed and will definitely be allowed on the couch.
Here are 11 other perks of having pet pillows:
- They don’t bark.
- They’ll watch TV with you.
- They’ll listen when you talk.
- Taking them for a walk is SUPER easy.
- They’ll fit in most pet purses.
- They probably won’t bite.
- They don’t have bladders, so there’s no need for potty training.
- They don’t smell (although we do recommend an occasional wash).
- Your friends with pet allergies will still want to come over.
- You’ll never have to smell wet cat or dog food again.
- They’ll always take a selfie with you.
I think we’ve made our case. We just answered all of your pet-owning-as-a-renter-related prayers.
BONUS: Why not get a photo of your friend’s dog ON pillows, and print that on a pillow? So meta.

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!
