May the 4th be with you! Madison Reed has Star Wars facts, Cinco de Mayo recipes, and inspirational quotes from Audrey Hepburn to get your week started right!

Star Wars
Thanks to the power of puns, May 4th has become Star Wars Day. Why? “May the force be with you” sounds like “May the 4th be with you.”

Use it as a teaching moment with these inspirational quotes from our favorite little green Jedi master, Yoda. Deliver them with a wise nod while wearing Princess Leia buns to fully get into the spirit of the day!

Cinco de Mayo
Tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. Plan some family fun without too much planning by setting the table with festive maracas and sombreros. Our guide for wearing hats with style will keep your hair gorgeous underneath the sombrero.

Whether you’re planning a big celebration or just a quiet night at home, add international flavor in a healthy way with recipes for easy guacamole and baked veggie chips. If you make a really big batch, try these 9 scrumptious recipes for avocado toast to keep this deliciously nutritious ingredient interesting all week long.

Audrey Hepburn
Hey Star Wars fans, May 4th is also Audrey Hepburn’s birthday. These ten quotes are equal parts inspiring, empowering, and simply scintillating, dah-ling! It’s hard to pick one favorite, but we’re loving her reminder that “There’s more to sex appeal than just measurements.”

Channel her style and grace with our simple tutorial to recreate her iconic hairstyle from Breakfast at Tiffany’s (it’s the second look down). Isn’t it marvelous to look so divine?
