Happy Holidays from South of Main Street!

Hope you have a wonderful day with your families and a Happy New Year!  I am headed to Sun Valley tomorrow for 10 days (!) of skiing and fun in the sun!  So I will be back in 2014 with new outfit ideas, home decor, beauty tips and lifestyle posts!  In the meantime, thanks to my loyal followers for sticking with me through my inconsistent posting and random thoughts – you guys are the best!

Love you all!  Cheers to an amazing 2014!

Blizzard Bash Ideas

Aaaaaannnnnndddd we’re back people!  I apologize for the hiatus, as I mentioned, I was in a bit of a transitional period, as I just wrapped up my last job and got a new job!  Hooray!  But because I virtually had no time in between, my last week was a bit chaotic so I didn’t have much time to post… I hope you all didn’t lose too much sleep over it!  Also, after thinking about how I can better manage the blog, I have decided to keep A Day in the Life to a monthly post, to make sure I am keeping the quality up to par and be realistic with myself, when trying to manage a full time job and a blog (my second full time job).

Anywho, how about this storm huh?!  I don’t know about you all but winter snow storms are my absolute fave!  It creates a sense of coziness and serenity and gives everyone an excuse to sloooowww dowwnnn…even in the big crazy city of New York.  It also makes for a great excuse to host a house party [read: apartment party].  Here are some fun ideas to host a blizzard bash in lieu of trekking to a bar…

Fondue Party

I’m thinking turtlenecks, red wine, 70s music and lottsss of laughs.  One of my favorite memories is snow shoeing up the Sun Valley ski mountain with Bry and eating fondue with an ice cold beer and rosy cheeks at the Round House.  There’s nothing better in the winter!  Let’s bring the fondue party back!

Ugly Sweater Party

The ugly sweater party. It’s been done time and time again yet never gets old.  Show up with an ugly sweater and take lots of pictures.  If you would like to make an ugly sweater investment, check out this site.  Hilarious.

80s Ski Party

Neon… so hot right now.  This one would be easy to conjure up even when half of the stores might be snowed in.  Neon spandex?  Check.  Heavy knit headband?  Uhuh.  Extremely boxy obnoxious jacket?  Heck yeah.

Turtleneck Party

You can get creative with this one people.  Mock turtlenecks, sweaters, classic stripes, you name it.  Everyone looks funny in a turtleneck.  Doesn’t stop me from wearing them on the reg.

Ski Snob Party

Think Lloyd’s boots in Dumb and Dumber.  There’s nothing like a good snob on the slopes.  Most of the time they can’t ski, but damn do they look good!  Get your [faux] fur and your metallic puffers out party peops.  And make sure to complain about at least one thing.

Don’t forget: plenty of hotty toddies, drinking games and quality playlists.  Have fun and stay warm!

XOXO
