Holidays Made Easy

Holiday Gifting

"Tis the Season to Give! The holidays are practically upon us and we are ready to face them in style! Rachel Roy, one of my all-time fave designers, has made gift giving easy this year with a fab Holiday Shop. And who knows more about the art of giving than the chic, stylish and philanthropic Rachel Roy? Focused on the theme of giving, the "'Tis The Season to Give" shop includes Rachel's favorite picks in the following six categories:

Give Thanks: Give thanks, give turkeys, give fabulous! Income from the sales of these items enhances an artisan family's nutrition, educates children, and brings access to health care and dignity.

Give ShineWho doesn't love to sparkle? Give Shine features sequined dresses, chandelier earrings and show stopping heels to get you and your friends ready for all those holiday parties. 

Give Color: The holidays call for some major color. Find the chicest RRR pieces that will brighten up any outfit or wardrobe. Spread the color cheer!

Give Hugs: Hug it out for the holidays with warm neutrals, a statement animal ring and the perfect shoe.

Give Sexy: Bring sexy back this holiday season: animal prints, lace and sheer, oh my! You'll definitely be turning heads, wherever you make an appearance. 

Give Warmth: Perfect for a night out with the girls or a lazy weekend with your boyfriend. Cuddle up with toasty sweaters and cozy furs and give some warmth!

If you're not sure what to give, Give style to your besties with a RACHEL Rachel Roy gift card. 

In addition, Rachel strongly believes that Kindness is Always Fashionable! This holiday season, she's designed a very special tote to help raise funds for victims of this year's Pakistan flood disaster.  For each tote sold, Rachel will donate 100% of the proceeds to UNICEF to help to provide lifesaving supplies to over 10 million children in urgent need.  Signed by 88 of Rachel’s most influential friends including Andre Leon Talley, DVF, Iman, Jay-Z and Oprah, among many others, this bag is the perfect way to give back. See a video of Rachel talking about the tote.

Rachel Roy: $50 Off $150 or More + Free Shipping 

So the question is, what will you give?

Along with gift giving dilemmas, another obstacle we face during the holiday season is trying to get through all those parties and festivities filled with calorie-laden meals and yummy treats.

That's a Wrap!

Don’t get stuck in a wrapping rut this holiday season. Melinda Morris, owner and visionary of Brooklyn-based paperie Lion in the Sun, offers these tips to make your gifts shine on the outside:

  • Think outside the paper. Fabric, scarves, tote bags, jars are the perfect eco-friendly way to keep your gift under wraps.
  • Waste not, want not - use extra scraps of paper for paper ribbons, decorative fans and flowers on the other gifts. Double sided wrap is even better.
  • Color code. For big families, color coding gifts for each not only makes for a pretty picture under the tree, it is a huge time saver on Christmas morning.
  • Stamps, stickers and more. Choose one base color for the gift wrap and buy it in bulk. Then personalize each gift with stickers stamps, decorative tape, twigs, feathers or leaves.

Holiday Survival Guide

Life can become complicated during the holidays, especially with the dozens of activities, parties and shopping excursions we all seem to pack into the final two weeks. Celebrity nutritionist, Paula Simpson is offering the top tricks stars use to stay slim while keeping energy levels high during the activity and stress-filled holidays.

  • Eat a High-Carb, High-Fiber Breakfast!
    Make a habit of eating a high-fiber, carbohydrate-rich breakfast, to start your day more focused and energized. A half-cup of high-fiber cereal can contain as much as 14 grams of fiber, and some high-fiber bread has 6 grams per slice. Aim for a total of 25 – 30 grams of fiber daily to best stabilize energy levels. Not a breakfast eater? Try a berry protein smoothie!
  • Smart Snacking!
    Look for whole grain crackers with nut butter (almond, peanut, or cashew). Or go for an all-natural protein/energy bar. Make sure they have between 10 – 15 grams of protein, 5 grams of fat, and 20 grams of carbs.
  • Eat a Handful of Almonds!
    Like all nuts, they are a great source of protein. They are high in fiber and vitamin E and almonds contain more calcium than any other nut. Their source of protein and fat helps to satisfy hunger and energy longer.
  • Choose Living Foods More Often!
    Living foods are alive, colorful, fresh, and raw. Plus, they don’t contain artificial ingredients and they provide lots of vitamins and minerals. Plus, most veggies and fruit tend to contain more than half water – so they keep your body hydrated.
  • Try a Nutritional Supplement!
    If you can’t get everything you need via food during these busy times, consider an antioxidant charged nutritional supplement for energy, clarity, and to help minimize the risk of holiday bulge.

10 Easy Tricks To Lose Weight

Nobody goes to bed skinny and wakes up 50 pounds heavier. Most of us gain weight by eating only 100 to 200 extra calories a day, says James O. Hill, Ph.D., professor of medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. The trick is to make subtle changes in our environment — changes that cut out those 100 to 200 calories a day — so we gradually alter our eating habits and lose weight. After all, the best diet is the one you don't know you're on. 

  1. Include a fruit and a vegetable with your lunch and dinner.
  2. Don't eat white foods at dinner.
  3. Use the half-plate rule (fill half your plate with veggies.)
  4. Have a sweet or salty afternoon snack only if you first eat a piece of fresh fruit.
  5. Drink one glass of water before every meal or snack.
  6. Use the Restaurant Rule of Two: Limit yourself to two items other than your entrée.
  7. Never eat in front of the TV.
  8. Eat a piece of fruit on the way to work every day.
  9. Save desserts for weekends.
  10. Freeze half of what you make, and serve the other half.

Well darling girls, hopefully these tips will keep you healthy, happy and glowing throughout this festive season! Have the happiest of holidays and a very prosperous New Year!
