The Birchbox Weekender

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

Make an Epic Milkshake

You've eaten your veggies all week and even gulped down a few green juices. Reward yourself this weekend with the creamiest, most spectacular milkshake recipes that are totally worth the calories. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill diner chocolate shake—we’re talking flavors like peanut butterscotch and Girl Scout Samoa. Grill up some burgers and make it a happy meal.

Give Your Home an Eco Refresh

Reducing your carbon footprint doesn’t have to mean a huge lifestyle overhaul. Try out these simple tips courtesy of Lonny Magazine in celebration of Earth Month, from installing a low flow shower head to picking up a fiddle leaf fig tree.

Eat Like the Literary Greats

Love curling up with a classic book on Saturday? Photographer Dinah Fried takes it one step further by photographing fictitious dishes based on iconic novels—like Swiss cheese sandwiches from The Catcher in the Rye and avocado and crabmeat salad from The Bell Jar. Take a look at her deliciously curated images and see if you work up an appetite for some On the Road apple pie.

Paint a Nail Bouquet

Put your flowers where your fingertips are with this mani design inspired by Rifle Paper and Co.'s darling stationary.
