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!

Go Back to School in Style

Labor Day weekend signals the official End of Summer. And while we're technically not in school anymore, we still want to go on a shopping spree for new pencils and pens. Keep them in a chic place by following this adult-friendly DIY pencil case tutorial. It also doubles as a pouch for all those colored eyeliners you've been collecting. (Fancy Little Things)

Sneak a Peek at Lena Dunham's Memoir

At the end of September (so far away!) Lena Dunham will release Not That Kind of Girl (Random House), her hotly anticipated collection of personal essays. For the impatient among us, The New Yorker recently featured an exclusive excerpt from the memoir in which Dunham shuffles through her childhood eccentricities. Read it and weep. (The New Yorker)

Skip the Brunch Line

Why waste an hour waiting for a table when you can serve up a restaurant-quality brunch for friends at home? We're obsessed with these bite-sized frittatas, which combine eggs, chorizo, cheese, and spinach—and pair perfectly with zesty Bloody Marys. (TableSpoon)
