Can you believe we’ve shared 50 different sets of 5 Things To Try This Weekend? What started as a little idea has grown into an ongoing series that’s become very fun for us to work on each week! We’ve had guests like IFB and Warby Parker take over—and have encouraged you, our readers, to share your experiences trying out our tips. To celebrate our 50th, we decided it would be fun to give back with five awesome giveaways from a few of our favorite brands. See below for how to enter!

    This reminds me of Diana Vreeland’s column for Harper’s Bazaar Why Don’t You… It was always very tongue in cheek. I did a blog post on her a few weeks back.
