Cough drops....your best friend and you didn't even know it.

It happens to us all. A craving hits. You can't seem to stop yourself from eating whatever unhealthy food you think you "need". My solution? Cough drops. Pop a menthol cough drop in your mouth. Trust me when I say NOTHING tastes good following a cough drop. I use this at parties as well. I'll eat the healthiest things I can put on my plate and when I'm done, pop in a cough drop. It usually does the trick. I hope it works for you as well.

Cheap Warming Tray No Electricity and Party Helper

A metal cupcake pan bottom of stainless kitchen sink...put a few tea lights in pan. Space candles as needed.
Put a metal cookie tray that overlaps the sink...leaving air gaps along sides. The tray got warm pretty quickly and it was perfect for keeping our mugs of coffee/cocoa warm in a cold room when the power went out. The tea lights last for hours. CAUTION: Tray can get HOT depending on number of candles and an open flame is a fire hazard...the more candles, the more heat.

Versatile bridesmaid/prom
/party
dresses

I happened on a web site that offers bridesmaid dresses that can be wrapped and configued in a variety of ways. They come in many colors (to match or coordinate) and you can add many different accessories (flowers, headbands, purses, shawls.) The short version is $140, long $180. I haven't purchased a dress like this for ages, but that seemed like a reasonable price ---and because the dress is so versatile, it could be worn strapless, with one bare shoulder, look like (click title for url)

Seconds Please!

So, you're throwing or attending a dinner party and you know that you might be tempted to return for a second helping. You can do it without breaking your calorie budget! If you are cooking, track your meal before the party so you know how much will fit in your calorie allowance. At the party, eat half of your servings on the first course and come back for the rest later. If you are going to a dinner party and not cooking, call and see if you can find out what's on the menu ahead of time.

Party Hearty!

You can have your cake and eat it too! Eat light before the party. Make your balanced plate. If you still want to indulge, only have a 1 or 2-bite taste of the offerings. Take half your cake or your plate home to enjoy tomorrow. Choose what you really want or know you'll enjoy. emoticon

Stay Away From The Booze

Not only will this save you calories, and save you from feeling bloated and gross the next day, but it will also save your internal organs! Drinking in moderation is fine, but if you're a partier or in college, think about your liver before it quits on you -- it is NOT a fun experience.
