Hosting your own accessory exchange

This is a brilliant idea!

Hosting your own accessory exchange

If you’re wondering whether or not to host your own exchange, here are a few ideas for making your next swap a success. 1.   In a world of plenty, set a few limits .  It’s a great idea for everyone you know to bring every accessory they can but setting a limit on the amount of items a guest can bring, as well as keeping the guest count manageable, will make for a smooth, efficiently timed exchange.    As well, having plenty of places for guests to set out their accessories with pre-made themed labels makes for a well-organized arrangement. 2.  Introductions can be fun!  Looking for a way to start your exchange? Integrate fun, festive DIY name tags that can double  for guests to...Read More

About a Beau

Which season are you most fashionable?

About a Beau

When it comes to options within my wardrobe, the colder months of the year provide outfits galore…layering is key. But, in my fashionable opinion, the warmer months (and thankfully they’re rolling in) allow for more creativity. How can you manage to stand out when short sleeves and shorter hemlines are all you can stand?? — (southerners feel me when I say they don’t call it HOT lanta and the SUN shine state for nothing) Answer: you accessorize . My current Spring season accessory is the ever-charming bow tie. So charming, in fact, that people are known as “ that guy who wears bow ties .” (I know him, you know him, we love him). Try something new this season (no time like springtime!) and be all about a...Read More

National BBQ Month

Yummy, BBQ!

National BBQ Month

May is National Barbecue Month! It is an unofficial holiday but an exciting way to start the summer. There are a lot of ways to celebrate this fun holiday, like organizing a potluck in your backyard or local park. This is a great way to bring all your friends together for some grilling and delicious BBQ. You don’t have to only think about meat for those of your friends who are vegetarian. Grilled veggies are a huge part of BBQ-ing season, as there are a lot of vegetable kabobs that you get a different aroma and taste from off of the grill. What better way to embrace the outdoors and welcome summer back with a big BBQ in honor of National BBQ Month? Happy Grilling!

Allison Brie and Adam Scott remedy this in SMIRNOFF’S ‘The Party’ video series, part of the new Exclusively for Everybody campaign.

It’s Not for Me…It’s For These Heels!

Always drink responsibly and never get behind the wheel when you've indulged.

It’s Not for Me…It’s For These Heels!

Getting home safely from a party is the most important part of the night. You can have fun all night long sipping cocktails with friends and hitting the dance floor but make sure your ride is planned out from the beginning. Whether you hail taxi or get a ride home from a friend who is the designated driver, it’s important to make sure you get home in a safe manner. Watch Alison Brie as she not only makes sure she gets home responsibly but decides to take a personal limo back from Adam Scott’s party here . Yes, a stretch limo for one person. Hey—at least she is being safe! Can’t get enough of the ‘The Party?’ Check out all of the videos here: www.youtube.com/smirnoffus ...Read More

Skip the Salsa

Happy Cindo de Mayo, everyone!

Skip the Salsa

Cinco de Mayo is upon us! Unfortunately, it falls on a Monday this year but that means you have a whole weekend of brunches, lunches, backyard picnics and evenings out to experiment with different ways to enjoy Mexican flavors in the run-up to the holiday itself. By the time Monday, May 5 th rolls around, no doubt you’ll have your guacamole perfected. But how will you spice up your salsa, guacamole’s refreshing sidekick? With fresh tomato season still months away, how about skipping the salsa altogether, in favor of a Mexican take on the classic Bloody Mary? The acidic freshness of the tomato juice and spicy kick will pair deliciously with the creaminess of guacamole. Bonus: you’ve got your drinks and your salsa covered in one...Read More
