May is one of our favorite months of the year, especially here in New York. After months of grey skies and barren sidewalks, the city’s parks are finally in full bloom, and everyone suddenly has the newfound energy to make plans.
In the latest edition of the Birchbox Agenda, we’ve assembled a list of things to do, eat, drink, and watch in May—whether you’re with your friends or flying solo. Foodies especially will love recipes for a Kentucky Derby-inspired mint julep and a raw asparagus salad (the yummiest way to redeem a winter’s worth of pasta dinners). And film buffs will have a field day this month, with a slew of upcoming flicks—including the Great Gatsby and the long-awaited sequel to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. There’s so much to do we couldn’t even think of spending another weekend afternoon on the couch.
Gear up for sunny days by picking up some new beauty essentials from the Birchbox Shop.
