The Birchbox Weekender

Since we know how crazy-busy Monday through Friday can be, we’d like to take a little pressure off of the stressful question of how to spend this weekend. In this weekly series, we clue you in to a few particularly entertaining things we think you’d like partake in:

Celebrate National Donut Day

Binge Watch Netflix's Newest Release

Fans of Netflix's original series Orange is the New Black have had this weekend blocked off for months. Why? Because it marks the return of Piper, Crazy Eyes, Red, and the rest of the gang from the female prision-set dark comedy series in 13 brand new episodes. Those of you who missed last season can still catch up, too. See you on the other side.

Read This Summer's Gone Girl

Fans of Gillian Flynn's 2012 thriller will want to pick up what critics are heralding as this season's runaway page turner, E. Lockhart's We Were Liars. The book follows young protagonist Cadence Sinclair Easton's attempt to recount her picture-perfect family's recent summer escape to their private island through her amnesia-fogged memories. Rumor has it that the final twist is so earth-shattering you'll want to finish the book in one, lightning-fast session.

Craft Your Own Earring Display

We're always on the hunt for new ways to upcycle our leftover Birchboxes, and we're obsessed with this DIY from Birchbox reader Lia. Showcasing the funky prints on our boxes' interiors, Lia invented her own earring display case, perfect for housing dozens of your favorite pairs. It's the perfect weekend project.
