These Pom-Pom Earrings are Next Level
Here at B+C we love incorporating pom-poms into everything. So we thought, why not our Valentine’s look too? Pom-Pom earrings are all the rage, so here is how to make them heart-shaped for a festive addition to any outfit.
- pom-pom maker
- fabric scissors
- jewelry pliers
- Wrap the yarn around both sides of the pom pom maker. Close it and cut around the center.
- Wrap another piece of yarn around the center, and tie it off to create your pom-pom.
- Use your scissors to sculpt the pom-pom into a heart. It’s a little tricky, but create a dip at the top where you’ll attach the chain and earring piece. The rest is shaping the bottom into a point, and shaving down the sides to make them a bit more rounded.
- Lastly, attach the earring piece to the chain, and tie your heart-shaped pom-pom onto the chain.
Get out there and rock those earrings! These add a bit of a whimsy to your Valentine’s or Galentine’s Day look!
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!
