The Birchbox Weekender
Sip Something Sweet
No fruit says summer quite like watermelon. This weekend, mix up a batch of Food52's boozy watermelon rosemary lemonade, which combines all three ingredients with gin and makes for a refreshing picnic companion. If day drinking's not your bag, try this gin-free recipe for a watermelon, mint, and cider vinegar tonic instead.
Go Back to Litchfield
It's time to clear your TV-viewing schedule. On June 12, Orange Is the New Black returns for its third season with all new episodes hitting Netflix at midnight PST. We're hoping it will answer all of the questions posed in Season Two's dramatic finalelike what really happened to V?
Update Your Cut-Offs
If you're already sick of last season's jean shorts, update them with this creative DIY from YouTuber MissTiffanyMa. With the help of some cute fabric (we recommend seasonally appropriate florals and graphic stripes), glue, and a needle and thread, you can make your old duds feel new again.
Tie a Celtic Knot
We're always on the hunt for new ways to braid, and this fairytale-like Celtic knot tutorial from Twist Me Pretty caught our eye. Once you master it you'll be wearing it all summer long. (Out of your league? Try the classic fishtail braid instead.)
