Easy and beautiful holiday looks for the everyday woman Feeling your best during the holiday season helps make celebrating that much more meaningful. When you look beautiful, your confidence and charisma can shine, whether at a work party or a family gathering. You don’t have to dress like a fashion model to have a festive look, simply remember these fashion tricks and trends for a gorgeous, comfortable appearance no matter what you’re celebrating: Accessorize - Just as the holiday lights sparkle, so too should your accessories. This is the perfect time of year to use your costume jewelry to jazz up any outfit. Pair a statement necklace with a simple blouse for a cheerful look. Heading outdoors? Broaches are back - so pin that sparkler to your jacket collar or to your knit hat for a little extra pizzazz. Denim - You can’t go wrong with a great pair of jeans. Be sure to choose a pair that complements your best features, like dENiZEN (R) from the Levi’s (R) brand, which is sold exclusively at Target, includes a line for curvy gals. Being fashionable doesn’t mean being uncomfortable: with their innovative Essential Stretch fabrication, their denim is 40 percent more stretchable, plus it will maintain

its shape and soft feel for all-day comfort. Whether you’re heading to an ice rink or a restaurant, pair dENiZEN jeans with a cable-knit sweater for a wonderful winter outfit. Blazers - Blazers are back and ideal for winter weather. A classic tweed blazer makes for memorable holiday attire when paired with stylish jeans, or jazz up a houndstooth blazer with black slacks and a cashmere scarf. Not only will you have cool style fitting for women of every generation, but you’ll also have an extra layer to block the chill of Old Man Winter. Sweaters - Perhaps no other piece of clothing embraces the feeling of the holidays better than a great sweater. Chunky knits and cowl necks are big, proving a warm sweater has its place in everyone’s closet. Take queues from the traditional holiday hues and wear a sweater in ruby red, emerald green or rich metallics. Pair with leggings and boots and you’re ready to hit the town. Black jeans - Switch out your LBD (little black dress) for the LBJ (little black jean)! You can rock them by day with a blazer to the office, or with a feminine frock for an office happy hour by night. One look that is great to experiment with over the holidays

is a twist to the woman’s tuxedo. Take a pair of black skinny jeans, like the ones from dENiZEN(R) from the Levi’s(R) brand. Wear with a tuxedo jacket, a black blouse, bowtie and satin stilettos for a look that will turn heads all night. Textures - An easy way to breathe new life into your closet is by thinking outside the box and matching pieces you normally wouldn’t pair together. Blending textures is a great way to create new outfits - pair a silky shirt with a twill scarf, an angora sweater with a leather skirt, or those funky boots with a conservative cardigan. You’ll be surprised at the new looks that can be inspired. Makeup - The holidays are the perfect reason for playing up your makeup routine. Whether you rarely wear makeup or you have an extensive daily routine, hit up your favorite retail store and treat yourself to a few new

products. Nothing says “mistletoeready” better than red lips, but the shade is glamorous on nails, too. For eyes, metals are trending. If the idea of gold or silver on your lids intimidates you, just dab a bit on the inside corner of your eyes for a little touch of shimmer. The perfect holiday outfit isn’t something to fret over. Celebrate all the good tidings of the season and feel great in an outfit that looks great while letting your personal style shine through.

Things retailers do to make you love their stores - and spend more Holiday shopping can make you feel frantic, while you sprint from store to store, trying to find the right gift for everyone on your list. If you think you’re under pressure to achieve during the holidays, however, just image how the retailers feel; holiday season is often make-or-break for many of them. And they’ll go to great lengths to keep shoppers in stores, happily spending. From sweet-on-the-feet commercial flooring to interactive product displays that incorporate sound and video, stores use a variety of marketing tools to make you feel welcome, wanted, and generous during the holidays. As you’re scouting for deals this holiday season, keep your eyes open for these five “come-hither” tactics employed by retailers: * Fatigue-fighting flooring - As you scurry from store to store, you probably haven’t considered the toll that average store flooring takes on your feet. Concrete floors, covered by carpet, tile, or vinyl, are common in retail settings, and they can contribute to foot fatigue. Savvy retailers realize that if your feet hurt, you’re not likely to linger in one spot. By installing flooring with anti-fatigue properties, like ECORE’s forest rx, stores hope to keep shoppers more comfortable. While the flooring looks like hardwood - adding a touch of class in retail settings - it’s really a revolutionary composite of vinyl sheet laminated to 5 millimeters of engineered, recycled rubber underlayment. It’s more comfortable underfoot, easier to keep clean, and quieter than tile and some carpet - all of which adds up to a more pleasant environment for shoppers. * Lights, camera, action! - Taking advantage of

new technologies, many retailers have added interactive video displays throughout stores to entice shoppers to pause and learn more about a featured product. Some employ touchscreen technology to engage shoppers whose interest is already piqued by video and sound displays. Others have even added features that interact with shoppers’ smartphones, such as scannable barcodes that deliver information or coupons to a user’s phone. * An oldie but still a goodie - For a while, department stores stepped away from the whole concept of free gift wrapping, but these days it’s back in a big way. From big department stores to mom-andpop gift shops, retailers have rediscovered the value of providing this service to customers. Free gift wrapping is a relatively low-cost service, but it’s hugely valuable - both to time-pressed customers who appreciate the convenience, and for retailers who are able to keep shoppers in-store a bit longer while wrapping takes place. * The way to a shopper’s heart - Another triedand-true holiday enticement is food and beverage. You might expect to find samples in a grocery store or wine shop, but enterprising retailers know refreshments are welcome, regardless of what product they’re selling. During the holidays, clothing stores to hardware shops find their way into consumers’ hearts via their stomachs, serving a variety of treats that range from specialty candies available for sale in the store to holiday cookies, cider, or hot chocolate. * Y’all come back now - No matter how delightful your shopping experience, eventually you’re going

to leave the store. Smart retailers use a variety of tactics to encourage you to return another day from handing out coupons for future discounts at the cash register when you check out, to “greeters” who also bid you a fond farewell on your way out the door. Marketers know that if they can leave you with a positive feeling and a reason to return, you’re much more likely to shop in their store again. Of course, retailers have many ways to draw consumers into their stores. And as the holidays arrive, they’ll be adding incentives like these to ensure shoppers enjoy their time in stores more and hopefully spend more because of it.

“ Yes, that’s a real baby in the manager” By Izzy Whiting South County residents of all ages came together for the annual Follow the Star event hosted by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Rancho Santa Margarita. The event, which includes a live nativity, as well as an indoor display of creches from around the world, “gives our neighbors in the community a chance to share in this special spirit of peace and joy during the Christmas season,” says Jeffrey Shields, one of the volunteers running the event. The show is organized and run strictly by volunteers from the community. “It takes over a 1,000 volunteers hours to set up and run this event, and that doesn’t take into account the hours our volunteers spent on coordination,” says Bethany Warnick of Rancho Santa Margarita, the Follow the Star project leader. In addition to the live animals in the performance, the live nativity presentation casts amateur teens and adults playing the roles in the story of the birth of Jesus Christ. The most unique part of the cast are the young babies which portray the Christ child himself. Babies under five months of age Page 4

While most people truly enjoy the holiday season, it can also bring a considerable amount of stress. One commonly reported cause of holiday stress is shopping for gifts. Selecting the right gift for someone can be a daunting task. When choosing a gift, try to find something that relates back to the recipient’s interests, hobbies or pastimes. One popular hobby for people of all ages is listening to music. To make this holiday shopping season a little bit easier, here are a few ideas sure to “wow” the music fan on your gift list. * For the record aficionado. Across the country, record sales have seen a recent resurgence. Most major labels offer LP versions of newly released music and a growing number of classic albums are being reissued on vinyl. The obvious gift to consider for a record neophyte on your shopping list is a good turntable. Records should always be stored upright, never stacked one on top of another, so storage cases that securely keep albums vertical are perfect for record newbies. For any serious collectors on your shopping list, search your neighborhood record store, Amazon. com or online album dealers for first pressings, which deliver audio quality close to the original master disc. * For the music lover on the go. Help your loved ones listen to their favorite tunes anytime, anywhere with a portable travel speaker. Travel speakers should be small enough to fit into a carry-on or backpack pocket yet durable enough to withstand life

on the go. Also, look for new wireless offerings that allow users to stream music from their smartphone or device, no docking or cords required. The compact and portable TDK Life on Record Wireless Weatherproof Speaker features Bluetooth(R) wireless audio streaming and a sleek, weatherized design that protects it from the elements including water and dust. * Get them listening with the perfect headphones. A good pair of headphones is the must-have accessory for any music fan. Headphone quality has a large impact on sound, so getting the right pair is key. Look for sets with special features including in-line iPhone/smart device controls or wireless options that remove the limitations and restrictions of a cord. With a wide variety of price points to choose from and different designs

available - in-ear, on-ear, full-sized and more - you’re sure to find a pair for anyone on your list. * Supply them with the music they crave. Online music services are more popular than ever before. Give your loved ones the gift of uninterrupted streaming with an upgraded Spotify or Pandora account. For a small monthly fee, your friends and family will be upgraded to a subscriber account free of disruptive advertisements. If you’re unsure of which streaming service your friends use or you don’t want to buy a subscription, gift cards are another option. Pandora and Spotify both sell gift cards online and these cards are also available at big box retailers across the country. For more information and gift ideas sure to please the music fan on your shopping list, go to www.tdkperformance.com.

local dentist dr. michael tessier discusses beautiful, Quick and Easy solution for unsightly black fillings Over the past thirtyfive years in the dental field, one of the most significant changes I’ve seen is the appearance of people’s Dr. Michael Tessier back teeth. We usually talk about front teeth when talking about cosmetic dentistry, but the appearance of the back teeth is also significant. I remember when I started in dentistry looking at mouths full of black fillings. I seldom see that anymore today, particularly in Southern Orange County where my practice is located. As an example, several years ago, there was a trailer for a Goldie Hawn movie in which this lovely actress threw her head back and laughed loudly, displaying a mouthful of silver/mercury amalgam fillings, which had turned black. Hardly consistent with the rest of her Hollywood visage. When silver fillings get old, they corrode- effectively rust- and it’s this silver oxide that turns black. And, that blackening is so pervasive that it often turns the whole tooth very dark. Last week the checker at

the supermarket had mostly clean, white teeth, except for the two lower left molars with very large mercury/ silver amalgam fillings. They’d probably been in her mouth for twenty years, and while they could have been clinically sound, she probably did not realize how they affected her appearance. By removing and replacing that black filling with a tooth-colored plastic restoration, or a toothcolored porcelain filling (lasts longer than plastic), or, in the case where removing the filling would leave the remaining tooth structure too weakened, a tooth-colored crown (or cap), the tooth could be returned to its normal, unremarkable appearance. Given the law of unintended consequences and the first rule of medicine-“Do no harm”-we avoid doing dental work that isn’t absolutely necessary. But a procedure like that is relatively non-invasive, and the effect is both dramatic and beautiful. Worth thinking about. If you have any questions about any things dental, please call my office (949-459-7212) to make a complimentary consultation appointment. The office address is 28562 Oso Pkwy at the intersection of Oso and Antonio Parkways in Rancho Santa Margarita.

Human Options Nets $250,000 for Domestic Violence Programs

The Ladera Ranch News

Eve Barker with John Pricz and Human Options CEO Vivian Clecak

Photos by: Frank Ishman Photography Dr. Drew Pinsky moved and inspired over 550 attendees at Human Options Fall Fundraising luncheon at the Westin South Coast Plaza Hotel. With family ties to the organizations graduate speaker, Dr. Drews presentation was both emotional and educational covering all aspects of human trauma including numerous stats and statistics tied to domestic violence. Estimated net proceeds of over $250,000 will support Human Options mission to provide a safe haven and life-changing programs to help abused women, their children and families rebuild their lives and work with the community to break the cycle of domestic violence. Attendees were welcomed by husband and wife co-chairs Moujan and Todd Walkow followed by comments from Human Options CEO and co-founder Vivian Clecak. The Human Options graduate speaker shared the podium with her 16 year-old daughter who she claims was the major factor in leaving an abusive husband/father several years ago. An added connection was that Dr. Drew Incoming Board Chair Nancy Dahan with Human Options Chief Development and the speaker grew up in the same Southern California community and Officer Darla Olson and current Board Chair Artyn Gardner remain friends to this day. Radio and television personality, Drew Pinsky, M.D., is board-certified physician in internal and addiction medicine and assistant clinical professor of psychiatry at the Keck USC School of Medicine. His thought provoking presentation was followed by a question and answer period which furthered topical ideas and discussion. The fall-themed luncheon included opportunity drawings for a $500 shopping spree to South Coast Plaza with one-year valet parking as well as a one-night stay at Westin South Coast Plaza with vouchers to theatre performances at South Coast Repertory. Major event underwriters included the Jaffe Family Foundation and Karen & Scott Green. The mission of Human Options is to provide safe haven and life changing programs to help abused women, their children and families rebuild their lives, while working with the community to break the cycle of domestic violence. Now in its 32nd year, Human Options provides a full continuum of services to stop the violence from prevention and early intervention programs to emergency shelter and long-term transitional housing. For further information Event co-chairs Moujan and Dr. Todd Walkow about Human Options visit www.humanoptions.org.

One of the favorite seasonal favorite decadent Christmas desserts served during the holidays is the Grand Marnier Soufflé.

Page 16

is one made years ago from a recipe from one of the many cookbooks from the Food and Wine Collections (1988). Of the many favorite decadent Christmas desserts made annually, the Grand Marnier Soufflé has always been a big hit among the easy to make decadent Christmas desserts. To make the Grand Marnier Soufflé, which is a favorite easy to make decadent Christmas dessert you will need ¼ cup of sugar, 3 egg yolks, 3 tablespoons of all purpose flour, 1 cup of hot milk, the grated zest from one orange, ¼ cup Grand Marnier (or to taste), ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract, and 4 egg whites. Preheat the oven to 475 and butter and soufflé dish that is at least 2 ½ inches deep. You will then sprinkle sugar over the butter and shake out the excess. Refrigerate your soufflé dish for the time being. Combine the sugar and egg yolks and whisk until smooth, then whisk in the hot milk. Cook over moderate heat bringing to a boil until thick. Reduce the heat but continue to stir until the mixture thins at which point you will remove from heat, add the orange zest, vanilla, and Grand Marnier. In a small bowl, you will beat the

egg whites for 2 minutes. Take the Grand Marnier pastry mixture and fold in approximately 1/3 of the egg whites and whisk until smooth. The remaining egg whites will be folded in with a rubber spatula. You are now ready to pour the completed mixture into the refrigerated soufflé dish and place in the oven. The heat should be reduced to 425 before placing in the oven. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately. Whip cream topping is optional. This easy to make decadent Christmas dessert will go over well with your guests. The Fudge Pie is also an easy to make decadent Christmas dessert that all chocolate lovers enjoy. Ingredients include 4 ounces of butter, 2 ounces of unsweetened chocolate, 2ggs, 1 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of real vanilla (you may substitute vanilla extract), ¼ teaspoon of salt, 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour, and an easy to use prebaked pie crust. Preheat the over to 350 degrees. Combine chocolate and butter in a small pan and cook over low heat stirring constantly until smooth. Set aside and allow to cool. In a separate bowl whisk the sugar, flour, salt, eggs, and vanilla and beat

until smooth, after which you will mix in the melted chocolate mixture stirring until smooth. Pour the mixture into the pie shell and bake for 35 minutes or until the center is solid. The Fudge Pie is great served with a dollop of whipped cream. Add your own personal touch to taste with this decadent dessert such as adding pecans to the mixture. The original recipe for this easy to make decadent Christmas dessert is also part of the many excellent desserts from the Food and Wine Collection
