Watch the toppings: “Gravy, sauces, dressings, and dips can add up quickly. Be mindful and don’t overdo it on the toppings. When it comes to dressings try to stick to the vinaigrettes and avoid anything that looks creamy,” Hefez says.
Wear something form fitting: “Not only will you show off your body, but it will help prevent you from taking seconds,” she says.
Order on the rocks: “Adding ice to your cocktail or liquor will encourage you to drink more slowly,” she says. “When the ice melts it will create more liquid and make you feel as though you are drinking more.”
Go for the real dessert: “Homemade dessert are best. Avoid the store bought cookies and cakes or low fat/fat free desserts which can contain a lot of fillers, preservatives, and fake ingredients. Go for the homemade treats which will be more satisfying and leave you more content with a smaller serving,” she says.

Whether you're out walking the dog or simply enjoying the beautiful transition of seasons, fall is a perfect time to take a stroll outside & feel the leaves crunching beneath your feet. Our second biweekly Inspiration Station focuses on enjoying the outdoors while still staying warm. This outfit features an extremely stylish and versatile American Apparel cowl tunic. We suggest it paired over leggings and boots for a cute and comfortable look. As we near Thanksgiving the weather gets chillier and the outerwear comes out to play. The first necessity is a trusty scarf, warm & functional doesn't have to be sacrificed for cute & casual with this red and black printed scarf. A warm head is also a must and this cozy hat does just the trick. You also don't want frozen fingers, these cutoff mittens are perfect for texting and keeping your hands warm at the same time. As far as accessories go you definitely don't want to go overboard, especially with a scarf and cowl neckline. These sweet and simple crystal and bottle necklaces add just a touch of bling. Paired with small stud earrings and a stylish bracelet that doesn't scream overkill. And last, but certainly not least, is this casual black wristlet with an optional shoulder strap. You don't want to be carrying a heavy tote on your stroll, instead opt for a more simple purse just for the necessities.
As always, everything featured on Inspiration Station is currently available at the store.
I hope this post inspired you, now close that laptop, turn off the ipad, click off the tv, and go get some fresh fall air. It won't be here for long so enjoy it while it lasts!

A large box of men's clothing just arrived from Alternative Apparel and had all of us girls in the store swooning. Why, you ask? Simple. Not only are the fabrics used by Alternative Apparel the absolute softest greatest fabrics ever, BUT the new styles are so great even women will want to wear them. Baseball shirts, cozy hoodies, and soft long sleeves are taking over our store and they won't be here for long. So take advantage of this gross weather as a reason to bundle up in Alternative Apparel men's clothing or buy it for your significant other and wear it yourself. Either way it's a win win!

A new jewelry line has arrived at Arcadia, just in time for the holidays. Odette is a Brooklyn-based company with jewelry inspired by organic & industrial shapes, natural specimens, artifacts, and primitive forms. Each design begins from a pencil sketch, is sculpted by hand into wax, and is then cast into various materials including sterling silver, brass, and bronze. We love Odette jewelry because of its simplicity and versatility. Come into the store, try it on, fall in love, repeat.
