Pinterest’s New Upgrade Is Going to Save You Money
When you think Pinterest, you usually think major wedding inspo, holiday party food ideas (like these tasty three-ingredient apps) and generally a good place to share and see all the beautiful things people are making and wearing. Question is, when you think Pinterest, do you think shopping? You should. The social media platform made some big moves into the e-commerce world in 2015 when they introduced us to Buyable Pins. And now that have something even more major up their sleeve.
Earlier this week, the image-based social media platform announced on their blog that they’re going to be sending email notifications to users when something that the user pinned has gone on sale. OMG, what? Pinterest wants to tell me when I can save money? YES, PLEASE.
Imagine all the ways you could use this feature. For one, you could easily pin your entire holiday gift shopping list to a single board and have Pinterest notify you when any of the prices drop. Another is that you could create a Christmas wish list of all the things you want but can’t afford yet, then attack once they go on sale.
Now that’s holiday shopping made easy.

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!
