We totally get it. There’s so much to do, and so little time—which is why we’ve put together our ultimate guide to making the most of every month. Here’s our list of the best things to do, watch, read, and try in March. (It goes without saying that you should carve out some time to read the latest issue of the Birchbox Magazine!)
'Tis the season for reimagined classics. March 1 brings Jack the Giant Slayer, an updated take on Jack and the Beanstalk with Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor, and the winning Nicholas Hoult from About a Boy. One week later, Oz The Great and Powerful skips down the yellow brick road into theaters. James Franco as Oz and Michelle Williams as Glinda? Say no more - we've preordered tickets already.
Nasty habit of firing off work emails at 6 a.m. Sunday morning? (It can't be just us.) Schedule them ahead of time with Boomerang for Gmail and let your coworkers sleep.
If Justin Timberlake's video for "Suit & Tie" is any indication, sexy is most definitely back. (We're suckers for a man in a suit.) His first album in seven years, _The 20/20 Experience, drops March 19, and we're betting it's worth the wait.
Game of Thrones returns March 31, and as a bunch of über-nerds who relish all things Seven Kingdoms of Westeros, dragons, and Robb Stark (siiigh), we can’t wait. What's more, rumor has it there's a major Sansa Stark twist coming up.
Valentine's Day is long gone, but fresh flowers should be a regular occurrence. Drop hints to a special someone (hello, Mom!) that you'd love a monthly H.Bloom subscription. Or take things into your own hands and sign up using code BIRCHBOXFEB to get your first bouquet free (expires March 31, 2013).
Drinking with Men, by The New York Times' "Drink" columnist and NPR contributor Rosie Schaap, had us right at the title. A memoir of a life spent in bars, both as customer and bartender, the book recalls Joseph Mitchell's McSorley's Wonderful Saloon and Pete Hamill's A Drinking Life, but from a female point of view. We can't think of higher praise.
We're already dreaming of spring farmer's market bounty, but fava beans and asparagus are still a ways away. In the meantime, we're crunching on raw winter veggies like kohlrabi, turnips, and fennel–try this salad from Chicago chef Stephanie Izard-to brighten winter's last gasp.
Downton Abbey may be over, but there';s plenty more TV to love from across the pond.The third season of Luther, with new love interest Sienna Guillory, doesn't air until this fall, but if you haven't seen this BBC cop thriller featuring the incomparable Wire alum Idris Elba, watch seasons one and two on Netflix now.
