2. Workout Of The Week: Body-Burning Burpees

Few plyometric — AKA jumping-based — exercises are as effective as burpees. Plus, we know how much you love them. (Hehe.) Need a refresher? Start in a high plank position, and then complete a push-up, jump your feet up toward your hands, stand, jump with your arms above your head, bring your hands back down to the floor in front of you and jump your feet back to the initial high plank position. Challenge yourself to see how many you can crank out with perfect form in 30 seconds. [Swirled]

3. What To Watch: “Three Identical Strangers”

Seriously, this story is stranger than fiction — and it’s all true. Twin brothers separated at birth found each other by attending the same college, and then they find their third identical brother. Although they grew up with very different families, they learn how insanely similar they are. As they look into their adoption stories, the boys and their families discover some secrets that are nothing short of mind-blowing. [Amazon]

7. R&R: Coconut Oil Hair Mask

The best treatment for your tresses comes straight from the tropics — a coconut oil mask.

Wrap your hair overnight and rinse out in the morning. Boom — instant shine! [Swirled]

The biggest St. Patrick’s Day festivities and parades don’t even take place in Ireland — we host them right here in the United States. So if you’re looking for a new place to celebrate Irish culture, check out Chicago, Illinois, the top destination in the country for the holiday. The Windy City is full of festive vibes as the Chicago River is magically colored a vibrant shade of green, and the parades are truly in a league of their own. [WalletHub]
