The Spice Girls Clan Gets Creative + 7 More Celeb DIYs
Is there anything the Spice Girls can’t do? Hot on the heels of a reunion tour (squee!) announcement, the fab five + co also show off their DIY skills this week, with Mr. David Beckham sewing… (wait for it… ) doll clothes(!) and Geri Horner (formerly Haliwell) whipping up a carrot cake (of course she likes orange cake!) for nephew Alastair. They’re in good company, with Kelly Osbourne trying her hand at baking and Courtney Sixx showing us all how to punch up a pair of otherwise basic heels. Check out our faves below!
Victoria Beckham: Posh Spice captures this super adorable snap of husband David stitching daughter Harper’s doll dresses, using the even cuter captions of “We love you @davidbeckham #lovingdaddy, #proudmummy and #familyfun.” Can you even? (via @victoriabeckham)
Geri Horner (Haliwell): Victoria’s former bandmate and gal pal for life, Geri Haliwell, got handsy in the kitchen this week, with this ever-so-slightly skeptical vid: “I’m making carrot cake…the mixture looks a little bit…errrr,” she shares. No worries, Geri. The finished product looks a-ok to us! (via @therealgerihaliwell)
Katie Holmes: Katie keeps her artwork enigmatic, posting only this shot of her covered in paint. (via @katieholmes212)
Kelly Osbourne: Kelly keeps it real when it comes to cooking: “I baked these blueberry muffins from scratch this morning, they look amazing but taste like shit!” Well then! On the bright side, your serving ware is TDF (get it?), Kels! (via @kellyosbourne)
Alexa Chung: Alexa gets some help from a mysterious little helper on this piece, entitled “Drawing with 12-year-old legends.” (via @chungalexa)
Courtney Sixx: Ever the how-to Queen, Courtney shows us how to jazz up spring footwear this week with these bejeweled beauts. (via @how2girl)
LeAnn Rimes: We love these rustic homemade Easter baskets LeAnn Rimes put together up for stepkids Mason and Jake. (via @leannrimes)
Ruby Rose: Ruby’s pal Nina Dobrev created her own canvas against Ruby’s advice: “Starting the wall of fame!”, she says as she traces her hand onto the wall with a sharpie. “You can’t just go writing on people’s walls, Nina! It’s not a thing!” Ruby objects. “Well, it is now,” she counters. Point, Dobrev. (via @rubyrose)

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!
