The Birchbox Weekender

Since we know how crazy-busy the work week can be, we’d like to take a little pressure off of the stressful question of how to spend this Saturday and Sunday. Here, we clue you in to a few particularly entertaining things we think you’d like partake in. Happy weekend!

Bring S'More Fun to Your Table

There's nothing better than roasting marshmallows over an open fire. But if you don't have any camping plans in your near future, no worries. Try this easy DIY alternative from Nest of Posies at home. Simply line small terracotta pots with tin foil, fill them with charcoal, and light. Now follow the Guide's advice to step up your S'mores ingredients.

Rock a (Girly) Mohawk

Keep your hair off your neck and look cool by trying out Birchbox staffer Whitney's latest updo invention: the braided bun mohawk. Whit says the process is easier than it looks—just separate your hair into graduated pony tails, braid, twist, and pin.

Watch Harry Potter Fall in Love

Daniel Radcliffe is way past his Hogwarts days, as evidenced by his new rom-com, What If. Though we know the "friends with benefits" schtick has been done before, we're curious to see how Radcliffe fills this grown-up role. (And keep an eye out for actress Zoe Kazan's enviable fringe.)

Ban Mosquitos From Your BBQ

We're in the thick of bug season, and we need as much protection as we can get. Melt your own citronella candle with these instructions from Poppytalk to keep the pests at bay. They look much prettier than the store-bought ones, too.
