This fall, feeling great is about really fitting in
your jeans. Not just because you dropped those
10 “scale” pounds, but because you learned how
to burn fat for your specific body composition.
A recent Mayo Clinic study found that a lot of
Americans—some 30 million, actually—may fall
into a category called “normal weight obesity.”
That means while you may not fit the typical
profile of an obese person, a higher than normal
body fat to muscle ratio can still put you at risk
for obesity-triggered issues like cardiovascular
disease and high blood pressure.
“The weight on the scale is not a great gauge
for health and fitness, because as we age we lose
muscle and gain fat,” says Sarah Eley of Boulder’s
Real Fitness Coaching. “So being 125 pounds
in your 20s and 125 in your 50s could be quite a
different picture.”
Belly fat is especially dangerous, say
researchers. So if things are a little wiggly in
the mid section, it’s time to target fat—not just
pounds—where you need it most. The best way
to actually alter your body composition is by
eating and training specifically for fat loss.
Eating for fat loss includes eating frequently
throughout the day, getting veggies at nearly every
meal, eating plenty of healthy fats, drinking lots
of water, reducing sugars and processed foods,
eating protein rich foods throughout the day and
eating starches when your body uses them for
energy and not fat storage,” says Eley.
Exercising for fat loss should include total
body resistance training and metabolic interval
training, according to Eley, who believes focusing
strictly on cardio doesn’t work for fat loss. “This
is a huge paradigm shift, as our members all come
in believing they need to do more cardio.”
For those who already have a favorite cardio
program but have reached a plateau with weight
loss, adding some targeted resistance training can
be especially helpful. Mary Davis of Boulder’s
Jazzercise recommends a combination of 30
minutes of cardio three to five times a week plus
strength work twice a week.
“Strength training is critical to increase bone
density, decrease body fat, and improve posture,
balance, and mobility,” she says. “Adults who
don’t strength train lose about a half pound of
lean muscle tissue every year.” And we all know
that more muscle leads to higher metabolism and
better weight loss.
A typical Jazzercise class, which includes
a gentle warm-up, 30-minute cardio section,
strength segment with weights and a stretch
finale, packs all the goodies into one session and
can be adapted for women of all abilities.
Whether in a fat-burning class or a gym,
fall is a perfect time—ah, yes, just before the
holidays hit—to start a challenging, sustainable
fitness program that will shake up your body
composition in all those jean-specific spots.
Women’s Trio
Three great exercises to start targeting important areas for women: thigh, abs and glutes.
It’s in the jeans
Side-front-side plank
Works: obliques and core
Side plank: Lie on a mat on your side, with your elbow on
the ground below your shoulder. Place your feet behind
you, allowing both knees to be on the floor so you have
a straight line from your shoulder to your knees. Lift your
hips in to the air and hold the position for 20 seconds. (For
a tougher progression, straighten your legs, stack your
feet and lift your hips.) Front Plank: Place both elbows on
the ground below the shoulders and lift your hips to make
a straight line from your shoulders to your ankles. Be sure
to keep your belly button pulled to spine and don’t let your
back sag. Hold 20 seconds. Repeat the side plank on the
opposite side for a final 20 seconds.
Lateral step ups
Works: thighs and glutes
Stand beside a high step or stable platform. Step up with
the leg close to the step and return to the floor. Repeat 12
times per side.
Passive lock single leg bridge
Works: Backside and spine-supporting back muscles.
Lie on your back with legs bent and on the floor. Pull one
knee to your chest. Push from the heel of the foot on the
ground and squeezing in that same glute. Proceed to lift
and lower your hips, focusing on tightening through your
butt and the back of your thigh. Repeat 12 per side.

“The girls can rock just as hard as the boys!” asserts Deniz
Davis. He should know; Davis is manager of the School of Rock in
Boulder, where girls and boys ages 7-17 learn to perform in rock-
and-roll shows.
“We have talented girls who are the stars of the band,” Davis
explains. “They have the same skill set as the boys. Girls tend to be
easier to work with, earlier to mature. Boys tend to be hyperactive.”
The after-school program, which opened in June, aims for a 50/50
ratio of boys and girls.
“We do shows every three or four months. Shy girls tend to come
out of their shells,” Davis says. The shows are held on weekends
for two performances. The kids imitate well-known bands, like the
Doors, Led Zeppelin, and Kiss, and dress like them. There’s a stage
element of the shows, but no dancing. The school’s first production
was Pink Floyd.
“We teach all the rock instruments: keyboard, drums, bass,
guitar, and vocals. The boys and girls pick whatever instrument they
want and we train them on it. We’ve got girls on bass and drums
who are little angels; they’re talented and work really hard on their
instruments. Others play guitars.”
These kids are self-disciplined. They have to learn their parts in
five or six songs for an upcoming show. The teacher shows them
how, and they are expected to practice hard at home. Since they
perform as a team, the other kids are counting on them.
“Playing these shows, the kids excel really fast,” Davis says. “Kids
who are shy get over their stage fright. Some kids come in already
proficient; we don’t favor a kid, though – everyone gets a chance.
We make it a positive experience for every kid, even a kid who is
School of Rock is a franchise, and Davis co-owns the Boulder
branch with his father, the general manager. Davis serves as
manager, music director and occasionally, teacher.
Many of the teachers have degrees in music and experience
performing. “My teacher was in a rock and roll band,” Davis says.
“My musical education started at Berklee in Boston, and I’ve been
playing guitar for 25 years.”
Some female rock stars the girls look up to are the lead singers
of the Pixies and Paramore bands. Add to these, Pat Benatar, the
Wilson Sisters, and Aretha Franklin – self-made professionals.
“A good role model for the girls is Joan Jett, who sang in a band
called the Runaways,” says Davis. “She’s a singer, songwriter and
solo artist. Madonna is also a good role model; she’s not just an
artist but also a shrewd business person, her own boss.”
Kids 7-17 can test the rock-band experience for two weeks at
summer camp. Forget arts and crafts – instead, they get immersed
in the fundamentals of rock and roll at School of Rock boot camps.
Students learn how to perform and the art of being in a rock band.
They take group lessons on an instrument of their choice (guitar,
bass, drums, keyboards and vocals), music theory instruction,
rehearsal techniques, performance practice and group band
rehearsals. All students perform in an all-ages rock show on the last
day of the program.
Ballet for Life
Diana Tepe, owner of Studio D Academy of Dance in Boulder,
started ballet lessons when she was 3 – and fell in love with dance.
Studio D, which just opened in March, has been her lifelong dream.
“Ballet is a major foundation for how we’ll act as girls, then
women and in our community,” Tepe says. “For the young kids, it
helps them break through shyness, trust an instructor, and it’s their
first time on their own away from mother. When they dance for
the first time, they think, ‘Wow! I can do this. I proved it to myself.’
Girls get strong
8 October 23, 2010 womensmag.com Women’s Magazine...
Then they do jumps in the air – it’s an analogy for life.”
Tweens faced with peer pressures have built-in confidence
to protect themselves. “They think, ‘I’m happy dancing, and
what would my instructor think of my drinking and the like?’
A community of dance is a network of strength. It gives the
structure of having one stable thing in life. The dance experience,
with music, is something they can always rely on.”
When they’re older and past peer pressures, they ask ‘Who do
I want to be?’ According to Tepe, “Here’s where the leadership
comes in: they give demonstrations for dance classes, and they
teach classes. The teacher is their role model, and now they
become a role model. They have a sense of responsibility. There’s
a sense of accomplishment and a commitment to stick with it.
You learn perseverance to stay with something – like relationships
– and confidence. It builds good leaders.”
The dance instructors are central to a girl’s experience. “They
can see your true soul, the real spark of who you are. You put all
your shyness aside. A real connection develops. They’re another
resource for these kids. In this dance environment a special
relationship develops. That place of trust is huge.”
If girls are interested in ballet, Tepe encourages them to
“Just try it. Try one class or one month. Take a summer class or
workshop. Test the waters.”
As a role model for girls, Tepe, too, names Madonna. “She was
very young and viewed as defiant. But she’s always had that sense
of confidence, saying ‘This is how I want to be.’ She’s passionate
about music and dancing, her art. She has aged very gracefully. She
continually reinvents herself and has stayed true to herself.”
“Playing these shows, the
kids excel really fast”

It’s Fall! Time to pull on the scratchy sweaters, carve
a pumpkin or two, and enjoy the delights of autumn.
Unfortunately, this also means that flu season is again in session.
H1N1 swine flu was the newsmaker last year, and as anyone who
suffered through a bout of it will attest, it can be particularly
This season’s flu forecast is still in the making, but the means of
avoiding this malady are well established. Getting yourself and your
children back into the right habits now will help ensure a healthy fall
and winter. It’s especially important for caregivers of children and
the elderly, who may have limited options in avoiding others who are
under the weather.
“The single-most thing you can do to avoid the flu is to get
vaccinated,” says pediatrician Dr. Stephen Fries of the Boulder
Medical Center. “Today’s vaccine covers the three most prevalent
strains of the flu, and the best form is the nasal spray, which provides
the broadest protection. It’s ideal for patients under 50 who don’t
suffer from asthma.” The flu vaccine can be the subject of great
controversy, especially in a town like Boulder, where many people
rely strictly on natural remedies, Dr. Fries notes. “The flu vaccine
has been around for quite a while now, is effective and produces
few adverse events. Taking vitamin C and echinacea can help your
immune system, but no studies have established that they will help
you avoid the flu.”
Children, who often spend most of their waking hours in crowded
classrooms, are a source for the flu, Dr. Fries says, and people who
are at the highest risk due to impaired immune systems or age should
limit their exposure if they can.
Other common-sense rules include washing your hands frequently,
especially after you have been to public places like the grocery store.
When you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth with a tissue or – if
you have to – a shirt sleeve. Avoid touching your face, especially
around the mouth, eyes and nose. Stay hydrated and limit your
alcohol intake.
And by all means, stay home if you are experiencing flu-like
symptoms (chills, body aches, fever, loss of appetite) and do your co-
workers or classmates a favor. “Give yourself time to heal,” Dr. Fries
says. “Wait until your temperature has returned to normal and you
have the energy to get through a whole day of work or school.”
Staying healthy this flu season is
nothing to sneeze about
By: L.L. Charles
1. Get vaccinated.
2. Wash your hands frequently, or use hand
sanitizers when washing isn’t an option.
3. Cover your mouth when you sneeze!
4. Eat right. Include healthy servings of fruits
and vegetables high in antioxidants.
5. Get enough sleep.
6. Avoid crowds and anyone suffering
flu symptoms.

5 easy tips to keep that smile at its best.
Brush. Yes, you want to get that spinach off your front tooth.
But you also want to stimulate the gums and battle bacteria. Hold
your brush at a 45-degree angle against the gumline and brush
towards the chewing surface in short strokes. Two minutes twice
a day isn’t much to ask. And don’t forget to brush your tongue
and the roof of your mouth; these are places where bacteria
really build up.
Floss. Flossing not only fishes out the popcorn kernels after
the movie, it also helps to remove plaque between your teeth.
Unwaxed floss may be easier to slide between tight spaces.
Regardless of the floss you choose, be gentle and don’t force it
into the gumline, simply work it up and down the side of
your teeth.
Get regular cleanings at the dentist, ideally every six months.
You want to avoid the scarier tools at the dentist? Good. Start
with going often enough to ensure things don’t get out of hand.
One in every 10 people tends to build up tartar (hardened plaque
which is difficult to remove and damaging) quickly. Brushing near
the salivary glands (inside lower front teeth and outside of upper
back teeth) at home between cleanings is an excellent start, but
your dentist has the tools to get the really damaging tartar off.
Think about when and what you’re eating. Sugary foods
and starches do less damage when incorporated into an entire
meal. And try not to eat that candy bar before bed. Not only
will it keep you up at night, but you produce less saliva (which
protects the surfaces of your mouth) when sleeping, giving that
Mars Bar more time to do damage.
Talk to your dentist. You don’t go to the doctor and make
them play “Guess What’s Wrong,” so help out your dentist too.
For instance, you can battle sensitivity to heat and cold with the
various toothpastes on the market, but TELL your dentist about
it; it could be a cavity or nerve inflammation that toothpaste
alone can’t solve.
Keeping your teeth and gums in great shape isn’t just about
having a pretty smile. Recent studies are finding links between
dental and cardiovascular health, so do your whole body a favor
and save the blacked-out tooth look for Halloween.
By Jeanine Fritz
It’s pretty fun to jam a piece of black licorice on your front tooth to
make it look like it’s missing. It’s also fun to smash a gummy orange
under your top lip and smile. And with Halloween just around the
corner, there’s practically a guarantee I’ll be doing just that, and often.
But it’s one thing to make it look like your tooth’s blacked out and
another to actually lose it. Wanna keep those chompers in tiptop
shape for candy apple season?

Fall has always meant changes in color, temperature, daylight and
fashion. Now is a great time to assess and shop for wardrobe pieces
you need in order to achieve your desired look.
Start with an understanding of your own personal style, the
“look” you’d like to achieve. What style best describes you; classic,
traditional, natural, sophisticated, chic, bohemian, whimsical, trendy?
Now, you can mix and match elements of different wardrobe
styles. However, it’s beneficial and economical if you understand
what your core personal style is so that your wardrobe pieces will
express who you are and what message you would like to send to
everyone who sees you.
To find what style best expresses your personality and essence,
look in age-appropriate magazines like In Style, More, O, as well as
fashion magazines such as Lucky, Elle, Vogue, etc.
Then, assess what pieces you need to fill out your fall and winter
wardrobe. Core pieces should be in neutral colors and be able
to mix and match with your other clothes to create at least three
different outfits. Knit tops, sweaters, blouses, and accessories like
necklaces and scarves can be in colors which flatter your skin tone,
lips, cheeks, and eyes.
Trend colors for this fall are camel, various shades of green,
and deep purple. Trend looks are short handles on handbags, the
military influence, and mixed prints.

get-ups from Fascinations
By Jeanine Fritz
Ah, Halloween…kids dress as princesses or superheroes and parents
pass out candy dressed as witches or goblins. But if you’re like me,
you wanna ratchet the costume up a bit because you’re not trick-or-
treating; you’re going OUT!
It’s a funny thing the girls and I like to do every year: figure out what
we’re going to dress as and then figure out how to “sex” it up.
This is tough if the original costume idea is say, a banana, which is
what I’m seriously considering this year. How I’ll get that banana
costume sexy, I can’t say. Maybe I’ll do something with the peels.
Luckily for you, I’m not in charge of your costume. Check out
some of the great classic – and sexy – Halloween get-ups from
Fascinations. They know what they’re talking about when we’re
talking about sexy.

Healthy Base
The first step to a beautiful face is taking
care of your skin. Consider your daily routine
– cleansing, toning, moisturizing – as well as
your diet. “Proactive, preventative skincare is
vital,” advises Dr. Peter Schmid of the Institute
of Aesthetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.
“Particularly sunscreen … and avoiding tanning
and tanning salons. Ultraviolet radiation causes a
great deal of damage.”
If you have questions about which products
and practices are best for your skin – because,
after all, no two faces are the same – our area
is home to many qualified dermatologists and
aestheticians that provide skincare analysis.
Smooth Palette
Humans are born with an average of 1,000 hair
follicles per square inch of skin, about as many
as chimpanzees. It’s not surprising that unibrows,
mustaches, beards and other hairy outcroppings
appear on our faces. But that doesn’t mean we
have to live with them.
Tweezing, shaving, waxing and laser treatment
are all options. However, electrolysis is the only
true permanent hair removal method and the
only permanent treatment recognized by the
FDA. That’s because it has been proven effective
on all hair types, including very fine and light-
colored hair.
“We are a great beginning as far as
improvement of self esteem - how you present
your face to the world,” says Rebecca Feldman,
owner of Advantage Electrolysis. “Anywhere a
woman or a man would hold back, where they’d
be embarrassed to have a conversation with
the sun behind them. My commitment as an
electrologist is to get rid of that hair.”
Electrolysis requires a commitment from
clients as well. A typical course of treatment
involves weekly 15-minute visits for up to a year,
allowing the electrologist to cycle through all
the hair during its growth phase. “It isn’t just a
one-time deal,” says Feldman, which is why it’s
important to find a good provider. Her process
includes a free 30-minute consultation “spending
good time with this person, seeing if we’re a
good match. Then I give a free treatment to see
how this is going to go – how the person reacts,
how the skin reacts. I want to know what we can
do to be totally successful.”
The Fountain of Youth may be a myth, but
giving your face a more youthful glow is very
achievable. Anti-aging technology has come a
Face Time
It’s the first thing people see when they meet you.
It’s your main form of expression, a billboard of emotion.
It’s what stares back at you in the mirror every day.
It’s your face, and it deserves a little pampering.

Finding a Qualified Electrologist
By Rebecca Feldman
Be very wary of a salon that is doing permanent makeup,
massages … all different types of services. Electrolysis is a
fine art that requires extensive training. The two questions
you want to ask when you’re looking for an electrologist are,
“How long have you been doing it?” and “Have you been
doing it every day?” That’s the person who’s going to nail
that hair. You also don’t want an electrologist who is in a
rush. So what if they can go fast? It’s much more important
to be effective and make sure the client’s skin is OK.
Feldman owns Advantage Electrolysis in Boulder, has 25 years of
experience in electrolysis, and trains and certifies electrologists in the
state of Colorado.

Aesthetic Procedure Consultation
By Dr. Peter Schmid
The primary goal of a consultation is to communicate what
the patient’s needs are – who they are and what they want to
achieve. Then I work on understanding diet, habits, skincare,
what procedures they have had in the past, and what non-
surgical and/or surgical options they would like to consider
for the future. If patients are willing to undertake responsible
lifestyle changes to take care of their skin, I move on to a
physical examination of the surface of the skin. I also use an
ultraviolet lamp to assess sun damage. Then we work together as patient and physician to
decide what level of treatment they want to have, discuss the recovery period and make
a game plan. Schmid owns the Institute of Aesthetic Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and is the
National Board Examiner for the Facial Plastic Surgery section of the American Osteopathic Board of
Otolaryngology, Ophthalmology, and Head/Neck Surgery.
long way in the past few years.
“Recent research has shown that individuals
who seek noninvasive therapies – such as Botox,
facial fillers and resurfacing technology – can
look 6 to 8 years younger,” asserts Schmid.
“In the past, a lot of people didn’t want to
go through a procedure because of a fear of
recovery time and having an ‘operated-on’ look.
Now there are a lot more options for maintaining
a very natural appearance.” The idea is to look
like you, only better.
Fractional CO2 laser therapy is one of the
newest skin treatments available and was dubbed
the anti-aging breakthrough of the decade by
national health website WebMD.com. The body’s
natural collagen production is boosted by boring
miniscule holes in the skin with micro-ablative
columns of energy. The result of a skillful
procedure is tighter skin and a reduction of
wrinkles, sun damage and discoloration.
“It really respects the pigment in the skin,”
says Schmid. And whereas traditional CO2
resurfacing necessitates an extensive recovery
period, fractional CO2 laser therapy requires
little downtime. “There is a very low risk for
complications, and I’m very impressed by the
quickness of the recovery. Most patients are
healed and ready for makeup in seven days.”

Remember that dude back in 2002 who crashed into a snowy
ravine in West Virginia and survived for nearly a week on Taco
Bell border sauce packets he found in his car? Well, winter’s
acomin’ and you know it’s smart to plan ahead. So after filling
the glove box with border sauce (my own personal tip), the folks
at Import Specialists of Boulder who actually know what they’re
talking about have some tips that might both help keep your car in
tip-top shape over the winter AND keep that border sauce in the
glove box untouched.
Owner Carol Hughes and Service Manager, Rick Hughes
put together a list of things to check off before it gets cold
outside, baby.
“Preparing your car for winter is always a good idea for
reliability for the long, cold weather to come,” said Rick. “Nothing
is worse than having your car not start or be stuck on the side of
the road when it's ten degrees out. Checking the basics is simple,
and should not cost a lot to inspect.”
Import Specialists suggest the following:
• Battery: test cranking amperage and the capacitance
for cold starting
• Antifreeze: check temperature protection level and pH
acidity) level
• Tires: check the tread depth and look for uneven wear and
tire pressure
• Fluids: check the level and condition of engine oil,
transmission fluid, power steering fluid, brake and clutch
fluids, and the transfer case and differential fluids
• Belts and hoses: check belts for cracking and hoses for leaks
and bulges
• Exhaust: make sure no exhaust is leaking into the car to avoid
carbon monoxide poisoning
• Brakes: check pad/shoe thickness and the condition of
• Wiper blades: you can’t drive if you can’t see!
• General health: tune condition (spark plugs) air filter, fuel filter
• Cabin air filter: it cleans the air you breathe in your car
10 Ways to Winterize Your Car
“Most shops charge a nominal amount for checking these items,” said Rick. “Taking the time to have [them] inspected will give you
peace of mind that your vehicle will give reliable service all winter long!”And also help you avoid a border sauce diet.

Spring forward, fall back. We all know the formula for moving
between daylight saving time and standard time. At 2 a.m., Sunday,
Nov. 7th, we’ll observe the annual ritual of setting our clocks back an
hour. For many people, it’s a gift of an extra hour of sleep that night.
But for some folks, returning to standard time from Daylight Saving
Time can mean darker days and darker moods.
“When we’re ‘falling back,’ we’re [experiencing] normal seasonal
change,” says Holly Jensen Widmar, LCSW, of Full Circle Counseling
in Louisville. “Most people find it easier than springing forward. They
say, ‘I’ll get that extra hour; I’ll sleep late.’”
But some people don’t adjust well to the change in routine. “They
may just feel out of it,” says Widmar. “The more people maintain
their routines, the better they do. They can anticipate the change and
use certain tricks to adjust.”
For small children on a sleep routine, Widmar suggests adjusting
their schedule by 10-minute increments for several nights. “For a
regular 7 p.m. bedtime, on the Tuesday night before the one-hour
change put the child to bed at 7:10, Wednesday 7:20, and so on. Then
on Sunday, when the time changes, they’re back to 7 o’clock.” To
stick to routines, she says, you can do the same thing with the child’s
meal times; if dinner is regularly at 6 p.m., start it at 6:10 on the
previous Tuesday.
For the whole family, try switching the clocks during the day on
Saturday, so everyone makes the change and goes to bed at the same
time as always.
“Aside from that tweak of the clock, maintain as much consistency
as possible. Do our regular routines and don’t mess with our internal
clock. Get exercise and plenty of sleep, more water, good nutrition.
These help us to be the most resilient.”
But, she cautions, “If after two weeks of standard time, people are
truly having difficulty, feeling down, unable to sleep or sleeping too
much, maybe it’s time to see someone, like a doctor or therapist.”
Widmar distinguishes between temporary feelings of discomfort
at the lessened daylight, and issues like seasonal affective disorder
(SAD), a mood disorder related to the seasons. “Some people come
in thinking they may have SAD, which is linked to people feeling blue
for a chunk of the year.”
According to Lynda Hilburn, MA, LPC, CCH, hypnotherapy is an
effective tool to overcome the discomfort resulting from time change,
which she regards as seasonal affective disorder. “Hypnotherapy
works with the imagination. The brain can’t really differentiate
between something observed and something imagined. It will act as
if [it’s real]. With hypnotherapy, have the person imagine a scene in
which the sun is shining brightly on them, and what they feel, see,
smell. Have them look around in nature, capture scenes in their mind
and have them for reference. One way to learn to imagine is to store
real scenes in their memory bank. What are the sounds of summer,
the feelings? “It’s not a magic bullet, but can be included when used
with effective repetition.”
If these tricks don’t lift the mood and remind you there’s light
at the end of the tunnel, it might be time to consult a professional.
“Have a professional create a tape for them. Maybe the person
doesn’t know how to do it, or isn’t confident enough to do it
themselves. It’s wonderful to let a good practitioner do a guided
session with them. They can relax. They’re creating a scene to work
with over and over. They’re really in this sunny place and not going
into a deficit situation. After all, it’s a normal human inclination:
When days are dark, we want to hibernate.”

The Nutcracker:
The Essence of the holidays
By: Julie Kailus
There’s just something about The Nutcracker. Without it the
holidays—at least for the female persuasion—just wouldn’t be the
same. This season, the warmth and the whimsy of Boulder Ballet’s
The Nutcracker performance will continue to inspire and delight in
the way only this timeless tradition can.
“The Nutcracker is such a quintessential classical ballet because it
appeals to so many people,” says Katelyn Burgess, Boulder Ballet’s
production and outreach coordinator and marketing director. “It
combines all of the things associated with the holiday season—
spending time with family, getting dressed up, doing something
unique together, and wraps it into a single, beautiful package.”
While Boulder Ballet’s full-scale version of The Nutcracker is
traditional, it includes a live orchestra playing Tchaikovsky’s alluring
score and plenty of surprising choreography by Boulder Ballet’s
Peter and Ana Claire. Expect out-of-the-box circus arts (unicycles
and juggling), a fresh take on the party scene and more than 80
student performers from Boulder Ballet School to keep the pace
and atmosphere fresh and lively.
Boulder’s version of The Nutcracker focuses on Clara’s rich story,
a dream sequence following her changes from child to adult. With
Clara at the core of the performance, women of every age will find
something they can relate to. “I think the element of ballet itself
is so appealing to women and daughters,” says Burgess. “Ballerinas
represent such beauty and strength, and the Nutcracker is a great
opportunity to watch dancers at their best.”
Whether experiencing it for the first or fiftieth time, The
Nutcracker is a production made more magical by sharing it with
someone. And like icing on the cake, it’s best with all the fixins’:
dinner, dresses and dreams of sugar plum fairies.

The U.S. Census Bureau recently released
August numbers and guess what? We spend
$363.7 billion dollars on retail and food
services. That’s a lot of dough.
But it’s probably safe to say that if you
had the chance to eat oysters at ramen prices,
you’d go for it. Well, get your lemon slice
ready because now you’re able to do just
exactly that!
Daily Deal has started popping into
people’s inboxes all over boulder county,
giving folk 24 hours to save big on swanky
restaurants, favorite local retailers, luxury spa
services, entertainment and more.
To participate in the Daily Deal, retailers
and restaurateurs have to dig deep and offer
up saving of 50% or more. For instance,
your favorite sushi place might give out $30
gift cards but only charge $15 for them. You
get the deal in your inbox, make some calls
to get the girls together that night and print
out your coupon. When the bill comes, who’s
gonna look like a genius?
Yeah, you.
Every day, you’ll get a new deal: mani-
pedis uptown, a massage on the west side, a
dinner deal downtown or two-for-one movie
tickets at the theatre - and every day, you’ll
decide if that’s a deal you want to spring on.
The specials won’t be offered to the
general public, only to those who registered
for the Daily Deal.
You might be wondering what the retailers
are getting out of it. This is a great way for
local storefronts to get new people through
their doors. Maybe you’ve never been to that
fancy South American restaurant. But maybe
parrillero-fired asado at cheeseburger prices
is what’s gonna get you through that door
and give the locally famous restaurant a try.

Would You Care for a Cocktail?
By Judy Finman
“As the holidays approach, festive cocktails are a way to brighten the season,”
suggests Tiffany Lough, liquor buyer for Liquor Mart in Boulder. “Bourbon,
Scotch, brandy, rum, and liqueurs are in the forefront this fall season. At your next
gathering share these fun, festive, and warming fall cocktails.”
What is a cocktail? If you’ve limited your imbibing to beer and wine, you may
not know. It’s simply a drink made up of one or more kinds of alcohol, usually
mixed with juices, fruit, spices, syrups, dairy products, and more. Wine and beer are
still popular, but mixed drinks are enjoying a resurgence.
Cocktails are a must for every party occasion, and especially for the ubiquitous
holiday cocktail parties. Following are some of the most delicious and sought-after
drinks you may want to include in your holiday party menu.
When your guests arrive, show how hospitable you are. Greet them with these
welcoming words: “Would you care for a cocktail?”
Nutty Pumpkin
What could be more perfect for Thanksgiving or
autumn-themed parties than this variation on the
ever-popular martini?
1/2 oz. vodka
1 oz. Hiram Walker Pumpkin
Spice liqueur
1/2 oz. Frangelico liqueur
1 oz. Half & Half
Combine ingredients in a shaker with ice and
shake vigorously.
Strain into a martini glass.
Garnish and serve.
Hot Toddy
This traditional brew, served hot, is a well-loved antidote for
a cold or even the flu. It brings to mind the archetypal British
aristocrat ordering his butler, “Jeeves, bring me my hot toddy.”
1 oz. brandy, whiskey or rum
1 tbsp. honey
1/4 lemon
1 cup hot water
1 tea bag
Coat the bottom of a mug or an Irish coffee glass with honey.
Add the liquor and the juice of the lemon quarter.
On the side, heat water in a tea kettle and add the tea bag to
make hot tea.
Pour the steaming tea into the glass and stir.

Hot Peppermint Patty
If you like the taste of peppermint patty candy, you’ll like this.
The blend of hot chocolate and crème de menthe reproduces the
flavor of the candy.
1 oz. peppermint schnapps
1/2 oz. dark crème de cacao
1 tsp. crème de menthe
hot chocolate
whipped cream
shaved chocolate or chocolate sprinkles for garnish
Pour the liqueurs into an Irish coffee glass.
Fill with hot chocolate.
Top with whipped cream.
Garnish with shaved chocolate or chocolate sprinkles.
Hot Apple Pie
Tuaca is an Italian liqueur with a hint of citrus and vanilla flavors.
When combined with hot apple cider, it is comforting and sooth-
ing – perfect for chilly autumn evenings.
2 oz. Tuaca liqueur
hot apple cider
whipped cream
cinnamon stick for garnish
Preparation: Pour the Tuaca in an Irish coffee glass. Fill with
hot apple cider. Top with whipped cream. Garnish with a
cinnamon stick.
Crockpot Mulled Wine
This traditional Southern drink is a delicious example of slow
cooking. You can start cooking it about 2-½ hours before party
time; it will be ready when the guests arrive. Leave it on the stove
and let your guests ladle their own.
2 bottles dry red wine, like a Cabernet Sauvignon
1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup water
1 square (8 inches) double-thickness cheesecloth
peel from 1 orange
1 cinnamon stick, broken into 2 or 3 pieces
8 whole cloves
1 whole nutmeg
orange slices, optional
Preparation: Combine red wine, corn syrup, and water in the
crockpot. Rinse cheesecloth and squeeze out water.
Wrap orange peel, cinnamon stick halves, cloves, and nutmeg in
cheesecloth. Tie securely with cotton string or a long narrow strip
of cheesecloth; add to slow cooker.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 2 to 2-½ hours.
Discard spice bag and ladle into mugs or heatproof glasses.
Garnish each glass with thinly sliced orange, if desired.

“Boulder is filled with nonprofits, so the
opportunities for women to get involved is
extensive,” says Janet Beardsley, executive
director of the YWCA of Boulder County.
“There is an open door for volunteers in
all nonprofits. The community supports
volunteers. A culture of volunteering exists
in Boulder – for example, walking dogs and
taking care of cats at the Humane Society.”
On the other hand, she says, “It doesn’t
necessarily translate to giving dollars,
though. We in Boulder don’t give at the
same rate as communities with less income
and education.”
The community benefits from volun-
teer efforts because the work needs to get
done. “Government hasn’t been able to
take on the work for those who are needy,
so the nonprofits are the safety net for the
community; for example, early childhood
education. If we put efforts there, we’ll see
fewer kids in jail. The career center at the
YWCA supports people and keeps them
off unemployment. When people are out
of work, there’s an increase in drinking,
domestic abuse, and crime.”
How do we train the next generation
to get involved? Beardsley points out that
women are the major donors – they give
the most money. “They need to be training
their kids and grandkids on volunteering
and financial support of nonprofits. They
can provide for nonprofits in their wills.”
To inspire people to give money and vol-
unteer, she asks: What are they passionate
about? “Perhaps someone’s mother died of
breast cancer, or they are concerned about
services for kids. Search within yourself
for what you care about. Use your heart,
hands, head, voice for advocacy, and your
The giver benefits, too. “Think when
you’re the gift giver and not the receiver.
Or, there but for the grace of God go I. We
see people at the Y who have lost their jobs;
you may also be at the receiving end some
time – there could be a time when it’s you
or your family. Giving back is important for
the continuity of life in our community.”
The YWCA offers many opportunities to
give. “Some women want to give with their
mind – doing advocacy work in early child-
hood education. Or by giving money; for
example, for scholarship funds for people
getting career counseling who can’t afford
the sliding-scale fees. Nonprofits are about
creating self-sufficiency. We’re the arm of
support for people in transition, to help
them maintain their self-sufficiency.”
From the Givers’ Viewpoint
Sharon Caulfield, a member of the law
firm of Caplan and Earnest, brings the
perspective of a business that has been in
Boulder for more than 40 years. “We made
a choice to be connected and to be active in
this medium-sized town. It’s easy to get to
know others and make a difference.”
The firm has focused its philanthropy
on areas where it can make a difference and
where it has practice areas as well: educa-
tion, health care, and the Boulder business
community. “We have given the lead gift
for the new outdoor labyrinth at Boulder
Community Hospital’s Foothills Campus.
Our firm has represented the hospital since
1985. In addition, we have a number of
very highly qualified women in the firm
out in the community. Some are on the
board at the Y, where they are trained to be
very good board members. As lawyers our
expertise allows us to be very helpful, so it’s
incumbent upon us to participate.” For the
last five or six years, Caplan and Earnest
staff has taken part in a backpack project.
“We have filled 1,000 backpacks over the
years,” Caulfield says.
She suggests a good way for people to
get involved in the community: Contact
the Volunteer Connection, an information
and referral center, where volunteers are
matched with the right volunteer opportu-
nities in Boulder County. It engages young
people in volunteerism, too.
Whatever way you get involved in a
nonprofit organization directly impacts the
community – and, you are likely to find,
also benefits the giver.

Before After
home inspirations
ideas from recent home projects
all is typically the time of year I stand in my
living room, or my kitchen, or my bedroom
-- fists balled at my side as I survey the scene. I
know you do it too. And when you’re standing
there, I bet you ask yourself the same questions.
Do I like it? Does it simply need a new twist?
Would simply changing the color or pattern of
a throw pillow do the trick or are we looking at
paint? Lighting? Total overhaul? Only you know.
But take a gander at these lovely confections
from Lawrence and Gómez Architects, and
Paragon Granite and Marble and see if anything
gets the creative juices going.
It's fall -- you're going to be inside a lot and it's
important your home is cozy, inspiring –
and totally you.
