Ring in the New Year with Style! (with looks from Banana Republic and Forever 21)

We LOVE New Year's celebrations at College Lifestyles! (It's an excuse to dress up!)

Ring in the 2009 with style!!!! Here are some of our favorite looks/styles!

1. Are you more of a 'Boho' style? Like more of a free-flowing look? This lovely red dress from Banana Republic ($99.00) is a nice alternative to a fitted/tighter dress. The red color is vibrant and matches the holiday spirit! Wear with strappy heels or flats and gold hoops.

2. Are you more of a ladylike dresser? Go for more romantic looks? This LBD from Banana Republic ($99.00) will look great on all figures, especially on fuller figure ladies. The wide straps add support and the fitted waist shows off curves! Complete the look with hair pulled off the shoulders and drop earrings.

3. Do you love the classic look of an LBD? This dress from Forever 21 ($24.99) is just that - simple and classy! The seams on this black dress is very figure flattering! Add a metallic clutch and shoes with a classic cocktail ring!

Congrats to our Director!

We are happy to announce that our director, Shelly Marie, is a nominee for the Louisiana Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year!

Shelly will learn if she is the recipient of the award at the Louisiana Dietetic Association Meeting in April! Good Luck!

Shelly was nominated by her peers in the Shreveport Dietetic Association! She states, 'That is what makes this so special, I am nominated by other dietitians! Wow!'

But Baby It's Cold Outside - Finding the Right Coat to Flatter Your Shape!

Here is a quick guide on finding the coats to flatter your shape!

(1) Petite (under 5'4") - congrats! Your similar to our director! Her biggest complaint - 'I can wind up looking 12 years old if I wear the wrong coat!' Problem resolved - look for belted (at the waist), hits mid thigh, fits close to the body. This coat from Forever 21 is perfect for our director!

(2) Tall. Look for a style that hits right above the knee with a slight flare at the bottom.

(3) Curvy bottom. Look for button up, double breasted, A-Line styles.

(4) Smaller on top. Look for an empire cut with larger buttons/collar.

Stay warm!

Body Image Goal for the Holidays! Krazy Karaoke Anyone?

Make it a goal to surround yourself with people and activities that make you feel good! If you are traveling home from college, stay connected and re-connect with friends and family who make you smile! Set up a phone date or Facebook chat with your friends while you are home and enjoy a walk with family members! When you are having fun and around people who support you, you will be less than likely to have a negative body image.

Some examples from the College Lifestyles (TM) family:

Our director will jump into 'Krazy Karaoke' with her family and her lil sis will sit at the bon fire with her family! While our College Lifestyles family will be apart for the holidays, we know that we will be texting and chatting with one another everyday. We are already smiling about that one.

What are you going to do?

Who Doesn't Love Dark Chocolate and Strawberries? (You Bet You Can Do This at Home, Apartment, and Dorm!)

Dark Chocolate and Strawberries! Let's see - the dark chocolate has a ton of antioxidants - our favorite, it's found to give us healthier skin (a chocolate moisterizer!) and strawberries (improve my memory - isn't it finals time!).

Bakers Dark Chocolate (found at any local grocer) + strawberries makes a quick snack, but also can make a great dish for any holiday party!

So easy to prepare! Warm the container of Bakers Dark Chocolate in the microwave for 45 seconds. Stir. Dip washed (dried) strawberries and arrange on a plate (so we ate some while we were preparing!).

Place the remaining chocolate in the refrigerator!

What else can you dip in the chocolate? Bananas, Gram Crackers, and whatever your holiday heart desires!

Special note - Our director will feature this on KTAL The News Station on Monday at 5pm.

College Lifestyles (TM) Director to Appear on NBC KTAL.

Our director, Shelly Marie, will appear on NBC-Affiliate KTAL The NewsStation on the Monday 5pm broadcast!

She will be discussing simple, savvy, tasty delicious appetizers for holiday parties! Move over boring, tasteless fat-free dip; and say hello to delicious! (Forget fat-free stuff anyways)

Do you Journal??? Or Know Someone Who Does? Here is a Great Gift!

Do you find yourself jotting down items on slips of paper? Or, are you an aspiring writer or journal a lot? (Our director journals constantly and encourages all her nutrition clients to journal their thoughts and feelings).

This journal set from Pottery Barn ($16.00-69.00) is a great gift for yourself or for the friend, sister, or family member who enjoys putting pen to paper!

Journaling- putting your thoughts to paper!!!! Try it, it's amazing!

Are you a Houseguest this Holiday Season? Simple Etiquette and Gift Ideas.....

Many of us will be traveling to either family members homes, the homes of a special someone, or the homes of our sorority sisters! Show your appreciation for your host family by offering a small gift, washing dishes, and/or preparing a small meal (if you are a good cook!)

Simple gift ideas include:
1. You can send flowers in advance.
2. Nice bowl or pitcher (for serving foods).
3. Candles/candleholder.
4. Foods that your host cannot find where they reside!

Always thank your host when leaving (send a thank you note!). A special touch - send a picture of the entire group (if you all went to dinner, in front of the home) in the thank you letter!

Happy Holidays!

Add a Festive Touch to Any Holiday Outfit with this....

These bracelets from Express ($12.50 or 4 for $20) will add a great hint of pizazz to any holiday outfit!

A New Staple in College Lifestyles (TM) Pantry? Great for a Dorm Meal!

We love the new V-8 soups! These soups are very easy to store in the dorm or apartment!

So simple to prepare! Shake the container, pour in a bowl, and cook in the microwave for a few minutes! Delicious!! And for less than the cost of any fast food meal, this will make a great study break/meal!!

Our favorite - butternut squash!

Eating Disorders and Holiday Time.

For those of us who are in the recovery phase of an eating disorder, the holidays can be a stressful situation.

Some suggestions that we have for holiday time and recovery:

1. Journal. Continue to carry your journal. Write, write, write. Write of your accomplishments of 2008 and future goals for 2009.
2. Activity. Continue to participate in personal time activities. If you are traveling home from school, start now looking online for local festivities that you, friends, and/or family can attend.
3. Identify. Identify how you will handle any 'comments.' Look at discussing more of your accomplishments of 2008 and goals for 2009! Shine, you deserve it! For example 'It's great to see you as well! I can't wait to start xyz.'

Please let us know of any other suggestions that you have!

College Lifestyles - Body Image Activity

Try this activity for improving body image. Look at it daily!!!

'I will list 5 good qualities that I have (intelligent, funny, artistic). I will repeat these to myself when I start to feel down.'

Dinner Etiquette - What if I spill something at the table?

Pick up any 'small item' - jelly, vegetable piece, meat piece - with the blade of your knife or a clean spoon.

If it stained the home hostess tablecloth, dab some small water on the corner of your napkin and blot lightly.

Apologize to your host! Continue the celebration!

Thanksgiving Dinner Etiquette - What if I am allergic to a Food Item?

A beautiful feast!!!! But, you are allergic to something. How can you graciously tell your host without hurting feelings?

Here are some tips if this happens to you:

If you a vegetarian - 'The turkey feast sounds lovely, but I guess I should let you know that I am a vegetarian. Please don't change a thing about the meal. It sounds delicious. If it is fine with you, I would be more than willing to bring an extra salad dish.'

If you are allergic - 'I'd love to come to your Thanksgiving brunch. I should tell you that I am allergic to eggs. I would be more than happy to provide (insert dish) for the brunch.'

Always compliment on the beauty of the meal, 'The meal looks lovely.'

Happy Thanksgiving!

What's in our Refrigerator??? Stoneyfield Farms YoKids!

For kids at heart - Stoneyfield Farms YoKids is yummy and good for us!!!

Organic, lower in sugar and taste great - what more do we need!!!

Great for the dorm, apartment, and office!

Travel Etiquette!!

The holiday season is here!!! Time to pack our bags and visit family and friends! Travel brings out the best in individuals, but for others, it can bring out the worse! Instead of thinking negatively about travel, think of your final destination! Remember, even if you are a frequent traveler, others may not be. Please remember that!

College Lifestyles (TM) loves travel, and even the most savvy individual can be a bit frustrated; but always remember that holding your composer is more important that losing your cool at the mom and 3 kids sitting behind you on a plane ride. Remember, put yourself in their situation, and offer 'gentle suggestions.' Finally, remember that some individuals have a fear of flying, and talk just to calm themselves down. Suggest to them a crossword or Soduko found in the plane pocket seat.

Other tips:

1. When walking on the plane, carry your bag in front of you. If you hit someone, apologize. If you are one who gets hit, offer to assist them (don't blow up at them - how unprofessional).
2. When entering your seat, enter with your backside facing the back of the plane. You will be able to 'scoot' into your seat easier.
3. If you don't want to talk to the person next to you, quickly place your earphones in your ears. Don't yell at them if they ask you where you are from. You can gently tell them, 'I have such a huge, busy trip planned! I am going to relax.' Then, shut your eyes.
4. Remember, kids are kids. It's hard for them to sit down for a while. If bothersome, politely tell their parents. This sounds crazy, but suggest a game for the kids - ask them about a movie or TV show that they have seen recently. Encourage them to play an game of naming the ABC's with animals, food, colors, etc.
5. The first thing individuals look for when exiting a plane is a bathroom, don't get upset if they are walking slowly and you know the airport well. Remember, they may not. Politely excuse yourself and pass them up.

What does our director do when traveling?

'I always carry books and magazines and read. I am more than willing to lend a magazine or Soduko puzzle to my talkative neighbors!'

Safe travels to all for the holidays!

Tea Etiquette??

Chilly weather brings on tea and coffee! How to drink tea properly??

When tea is served in a cup/saucer - place the spoon on the side of the saucer (as with the tea bag).

Tip: When served as a hot beverage; always remove the spoon from the mug. If a saucer is not available, place spoon on bread plate.

Great Holiday Shoes from Aldo!!!

These beautiful shoes from Aldo ($80.00) will go with any holiday dress, as well as dress up any pencil skirt or dark trousers for a work-to-evening look!

Exactly How am I to eat a Pineapple?

Although pineapples are more of a 'summer' fruit; we have a chance of eating pineapple for Thanksgiving! (Along with turkey, many individuals prepare ham with pineapple slices on top.

Eat pineapple slices with a fork and knife (continental style please!)

Sunday, November 16, 2008

What's in our Director's Travel Bag??? Something anyone can have in the dorm or refrigerator!

Since our director will be flying out tomorrow (to the land of the Gators!), we asked her what goodies she will travel with on the plane...

'I always make a wrap with Hormel sliced ham, 2% kraft cheese, and a high fiber bagel as my bread.'

Why Hormel? 'Hormel has no MSG and no added nitrates and taste wonderful! No airport food for me!'

We Found It - A Great Dress from French Connection!

General Rule of Thumb on 'when to send invitations!'

Formal Dinner - 3 to 6 weeks
Informal Dinner - a few days away to 3 weeks
Cocktail Party - 2 to 4 weeks
Christmas Party - 1 month
Tea - a few days to 2 weeks

Another Great LBD!!! (From Gap!)

We love this LBD (little black dress) from Gap ($78.00)!

The empire waist will give the illusion of a longer leg line! If you feel a bit too 'showy' in the strapless dress, top with a cropped white cardigan OR a sparkly cropped black cardigan!

Top with a clutch, cocktail ring (see our earlier post), silver or black beaded necklace, and peep-toe shoes for a night out, winter formal, or a holiday cocktail party!

Creating a Better Body Image....Start a Quote File (A Great Sisterhood Development Program)

In addition to your SunShine File (as posted earlier), we encourage you to start an inspirational/favorite quote file that you can look at daily! Pick quote that you relate to, in addition to quotes that will help you reach your goals (personally and professionally!)!

From our Director's Quote File:

'Good things come in small packages!' (Our director is 5'1')
'A Women Should Be 2 Things - Classy and Fabulous' ~ Coco Chanel

How to turn this into a sisterhood development program?

Encourage each sister to bring their favorite quote (or quote that describes them). Have each explain their quote to the entire group. When completed, place all quotes in a scrapbook file/poster file for all to view!

2 weeks ago, she discovered a new Campbell's soup flavor - Healthy Select Mexican Chicken Tortilla! Just throw it in the microwave and enjoy!

What is the Proper Way to Eat Olives?

Holiday and cocktail parties are approaching!!!! Delicious foods, great music, good times.....

.....and an olive pit.

How do properly eat an olive?

Olives with pits are held in the fingers and eaten in several bites, then the pit is discarded on the side of your plate or into a napkin.

A Cardigan Dress that Flatters all Figures!!! (3 Ways to Wear!)

We LOVE this draped open front cardigan dress from Twelve by Twelve (for only $24.90!)!

This type of draping is very flattering on all shapes! How? Tie the waist sash around the smallest part of your waist to create a lovely hour glass shape!

Other tips:
1. If you are trying to conceal a tummy, tie the waist sash under the bra line to create an empire waist.
2. For boyish shapes, tie the waist sash at the natural waist (belly button area).

Tips for wearing:
1. Wear as is with ribbon, the bracelet shown below, and round toe heels for a cocktail party!
2. Wear with a skinny belt, cami, jeans, boots, and hoop earrings to class!

Great Accessory from Gap (Goes with our LBDs and our Blouse Shown Below!)

We love this multi-beaded bracelet from the Gap ($24.50). Wear it to your holiday parties with your LBD (little black dress) and with any blouse (especially our wrap blouse shown below)!

How to Be a Bad Holiday Guest (and How to Avoid it!)!

The holidays are approaching, many of us will be off visiting family as well as the families of our significant others!

Imagine, you sit down to your meal, grab the salt shaker, and pour the salt on.

What's wrong with that picture? Always, always taste your food before salting! Salting food before tasting implies that the chef (or host of the holiday party) doesn't know how to season a dish. (Translation, it's an insult!)

Butter and Bread? There's more etiquette to this?

Here is what we hope everyone knows!

1. Break bread into small pieces (one at a time) before buttering.
2. Break bread into small pieces (one at a time) before dipping in olive oil.

But here is what we want you to know as well! When using the knife to butter the bread, rest the knife on the bread plate throughout the meal. The dirty utensil should not touch the table!

Body Image Tip! Sunshine file!

Start a 'Sunshine' File!

Keep all thank you notes, funny pictures, emails from friends that make you feel good! Be sure to look at these every so often to remind yourself what others think of you!

A Mix in for Your Yogurt that is Great for the Skin! Hint - its a seed!

We love pumpkin seeds - did you that pumpkin seeds are considered a beauty food??? Full of iron, protein, magnesium and zinc - mix one spoon with your yogurt (shown below!!) or cereal!

David's All Natural Pumpkin Seeds fit the bill perfectly - affordable, storeable, and preservative free!!!

A Great Find for Dorm/Apartment Refrigerator - Dannon All Natural Yogurts!

We love yogurt here at College Lifestyles. Our director fancies Greek yogurt, while others fancy Dannon Light and Fit varieties. The new Dannon All Natural Collection is made with real fruit and no artificial chemicals!

Small enough to fit in a dorm refrigerator, and it doesn't break the bank!!! Priced at approximately $2.25 per four, once container is cheaper than a vending machine visit (and better for our body!)

Makes a great afternoon snack or study snack!

(Remember to recycle the container!)
