the trend: OFF-SHOULDER This trend is one to love. And so are shoulders. Look for ‘cut outs’, peasant-style tops, and dresses and don’t be afraid to layer over a shirt for something a little more fashion-forward. If you’re worried about getting cold shoulders, let that thought go – there is no denying that bare shoulders are sexy on everyone and that means you’ll look hot!

the trend: TURTLENECKS Turtlenecks, mock necks, delicate and chunky knits – any kind of turtleneck will be in vogue. It’s definitely a wardrobe essential! Pair a turtleneck with jeans, skirts or trousers and layer with scarves, tunics, and ponchos to heighten your fashion statement. If there’s one more piece to add to your list, the turtleneck is the one.

An Exclusive STYLE Interview with Jann Arden On eggnog, hockey sticks, music & world peace :-)
Style: We’d love to hear about your favourite holiday traditions. I have a lot of great memories where Christmas is concerned. One of my favourites was watching mom make eggnog from scratch. I wish she could remember what the heck she put in it, but sadly that recipe is lost to time and space. Alzheimer’s has a way of stealing things and hiding them. I can picture her cracking whole eggs into the blender and grating in the nutmeg... adding cream, vanilla extract, milk and cinnamon. It was a foamy, dreamy mug full of wonderful. I should give it a whirl myself one of these days to see if I even get close! We also played Rummoli every year. None of us actually knew the rules of that card game, but we’d laugh our butts off as we dropped our pennies into the various squares on the plastic sheet. Clubs, spades, diamonds and hearts. For some reason, my gram always won the jackpot and no one was sure why! Style: What’s one of the best gifts you’ve ever received? It was always exciting getting a new hockey stick every year. Not kidding. As I got older, I loved getting the big trays of make-up from the drugstore. Pallets of eyeshadow and lip gloss and brushes and blushes and mascara. I have always loved makeup–even when I played girls hockey! Style: We love your “A Jann Arden Christmas” album. Do you have a song that’s particularly meaningful to you? If so, will you share your story about it? Honestly, I LOVE all the songs on this record. It took us a long, long, long time to choose which songs to record, and of course the most important part of that decision-making was that I LOVED the song. If I HAD to pick one, it would be O Holy Night. I love the production and the simplicity of the arrangement. It is a difficult song to sing but well worth the effort!
broadcaster, an actor, a guest host of The Social and you’ve produced two documentaries. You have so many talents! What other dreams do you have yet to fulfill? I would love to work more with animals. I think my golden years are going to be spent saving whatever furry creatures I can; improving their lives, and being an advocate for their rights as living, thoughtful beings. I would also like to learn how to fly, or not. think needs our attention most these days? Lord, where does one start? Honestly, in my mind I feel like we have to really concentrate our efforts at saving and healing the planet. We are ruining the only little piece of ground we live on. Without the earth, every other issue seems to be a moot point. Species of animals, fish, insects, and birds, you name it are going extinct each and every day–never to return. Our tree canopy reduced by 90%, the use of fossil fuels causing unheard of disasters. Global warming, pollution, carbon poisoning–all of it has to be reduced and eventually eliminated. Style: You’re performing select Christmas shows with the Winnipeg and Toronto Symphony Orchestras this holiday season. What’s the best part of that experience for you? The BAND! I mean, forty-plus people on the stage with a common goal; there is nothing like it in the world. A surreal, ethereal experience for sure. Style: Any new albums in the works that you can tell us about? I’ll start recording a new original record next year. Style: If you had one wish for this holiday season, what would it be? Peace. World peace. I feel like I just won a beauty pageant. Style: You’re also a philanthropist and have generously supported several charities. What charity do you
Style: Not only are you an award winning singer/ songwriter, you’re also an author, a columnist, a

TIPS FOR EATING CLEAN
OVER THE HOLIDAYS
B Y : T O S C A R E N O
Eating is as much a part of holiday celebrations as presents, parties and poinsettias. Trying to survive the festivities without gaining the customary seven pounds is challenging. The trick is to put into practice my top strategies for Eating Clean® over the holidays.
THE CHICKEN AND THE EGG Including protein in each of your meals is not only one of the key principles of Eating Clean®, it is the most effective way to both boost the metabolism and burn fat. Protein takes longer for the body to break down and is released more slowly into the bloodstream than carbohydrates–helping you to feel satiated longer. PROPER PORTIONS PLEASE There are many ways to minimize portions including using smaller dishes and glasses. Using a dinner plate that is 50% smaller than a regular sized plate helps you reduce the amount that you serve yourself. If it doesn’t land on your plate, you are not going to eat it. You can also use smaller glasses to help manage beverage consumption. NO THANKS, NOT HUNGRY Eat before you attend a festive party! This saves you the embarrassment and disappointment of overeating at the party, and helps to ensure you get your daily nutrients. EAT CLEAN GET MESSY When we Eat Clean®, we eat more nutritionally dense foods– ones that tend to cleanse us from the inside out. Nutritionally dense foods like broccoli, apples and beets are difficult to overeat. During the holidays, focus on consuming as many clean foods as possible. Your trim waist will thank you.
