The Birchbox Weekender

Make S'mores Indoors

It's officially the dead of winter. With springtime months away, why not do an outdoor activity, inside to cheer up your cold-weather-induced gloomy self? Made with chocolate chips and marshmallows, Dessert for Two's Indoor S'Mores are the dip version of everyone's favorite campfire treat. (And will make a sharable, sweet addition to next weekend's Super Bowl spread.)

Pretend You're at Sundance

...And start planning your movie outings for the year now with the help of Rolling Stone's list of 25 Must-See Movies at Sundance 2015. Sure, it might feel like a tease because you'll have to wait awhile to see them, but at least you'll have something to look forward to, like the doc Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, based on Lawrence Wright's fascinating book of the same name.

Organize Your Spices Once and For All

Variety is decidedly not the spice of life when you need the cumin for your chili and you can't find it. Save yourself from the dreaded moment of realizing you don't have what you need (then inevitably finding it two weeks later behind the soy sauce) and try one of Serious Eats' spice organization ideaswe're particularly fond of the magnetic tins, which handily stick to your fridge for primo visibility.

Have Your Tea and Light It Too

After a long day, there's nothing like lighting a candle and drinking a warm mug of lemon ginger tea to unwindeven if it's in front of the TV. Combine the two with this adorable Teacup Candle DIY from Cupcakes and Cashmere, which helps you create a custom-scented bougie in your favorite floral cup. Your weeknight self will thank you.
