So long February! We’re leaving you in the dry cleaning bag (along with this year’s sweaters and coats) and not looking back. March is always an exciting time in Austin because of SXSW, when our town population actually triples for 10 days. Okay, that’s actually an unverified rumor… but I can vouch that it feels true!  Weather you’re coming in for the festival, spring breaking, or simply enjoying warmer temps, here are some fun ideas for how you can make the most of this month:

Stop blow-drying your hair.


Make your own ceviche!

Get your girl gang together to watch the premiere of Heathers on the 7th. (Oh, and if you’re not already pumped, just watch this trailer.)

Take a spring break getaway to a beach (or just drool over this amazing vacation rental.)

… and take your instagram game to the next level while you’re at it.

Get pumped for David Byrne’s new album dropping on March 9th. Called “American Utopia”, this marks the former Talking Heads singer’s first solo LP in over 14 years. We’re already loving this pre-released single.

Start prepping for swimsuit season with this detox salad.

Get your friends together for a picnic instead of happy hour at a restaurant.


Buy a wristband for SXSW and visit a few of our favorite Austin restaurants while you’re here!

Get proactive about making new friends.


Pump yourself up for working out again with these motivating quotes!

    I love picnics! Happy that season is coming back ’round, along with the BBQ season.
    If I don’t dry my hair, though, my scalp feels cold and then I feel sick so unfortunately, don’t think I can completely stop doing that until the weather gets much, much warmer. I can’t wait for that time, though. Then i can dry in front of the fan or something. Blowdrying takes up so much time with long hair, I hate it.

    March had started off with a bang in the Bay Area – thunder that is – and pouring rain. Hopefully, spring weather will be here soon because I absolutely LOVE the idea of a picnic instead of happy hour.
