Happy Friday! Whether or not you got away for Spring Break, make this weekend one to remember. Get more out of life with Madison Reed.


Save the World
Did you know that April is Earth Month? Help save the world (and your budget) by planting a tree or shrub to shade your central air conditioning unit. This increases energy efficiency up to 10%. Get more eco-friendly tips from the Ian Somerhalder Foundation.

We’re doing our part with smaller, more efficient packaging that cuts our carbon footprint from shipping, uses less raw materials, and still delivers a luxury hair color experience.

Show Some Love
It’s also National Siblings Day! Make a coloring date with your sister (or a friend who’s there for you like a sister). You can help each other apply color and bond over a glass of wine. It’s a nice way to turn a regular routine into a fun night in.

Kids get anxious when they hear about tragedies. Next time you field a difficult “What if…” question, try this warm, loving technique for answering from Eileen Kennedy-Moore, Ph.D.

Time for TV
Game of Thrones fans have been looking forward to the premiere of season 5 for a long time. Get ready with this extensive guide from Winter is Coming.

If you have extra cardboard boxes on hand, you could even draw inspiration from Cardboard Box Office and make your own family-friendly Iron Throne!

We’re also digging the final season Mad Men and its far out fashions. Recreate three iconic hairstyles with this collection of tutorials from Birchbox.
