11 Easy Ways to Keep Your Resolutions
Sip Low-cal Cocktails
Turns out you don't have to swear off alcohol to drop pounds! Watch your caloric intake and still enjoy a delicious cocktail with all-natural Ty-Ku Soju drinks. Try a Ty-Phoon or a Sake Sunrise-at under 100 calories each, they're a smarter pick than vodka. Click here to find the Ty-Ku retailer near you.
Lick Your Lips
Talk about multi-tasking! Huge Lips, Skinny Hips lip gloss plumps puckers while simultaneously curbing appetites. Thanks to active ingredients such as lemon peel oil, which soothes lips once plumping agent vitamin B3 activates, and Hoodia, an herb that suppresses appetite, you can watch your waist and score full lips all at once.

Wear a Stylish Belt
Take a cue from First Lady Michelle Obama and put on a belt! Whether you choose wide pieces to wear over cardigans or skinnier versions to cinch sheath dresses, belts trim figures instantly by defining waistlines.
Stand Up Straight
Attention slouchers! What if we told you standing (or sitting) up straight makes you look longer and leaner? Well it's true: Keep your shoulders back and head held high like Nicole Kidman and Beyonce to improve your silhouette.
Disguise Flaws With a LBD
Why bother sucking it in? ShapeFX's cap sleeve control dress that does all the work for you. A built-in power-mesh slip controls tummies, hips and thighs while princess seams create complimentary curves. Plus, the design is chic enough to take you from the office to the party.

Hide Muffin Tops
Piling on loads of layers isn't the most efficient way to conceal that post-holiday bulge. Instead, reach for one of Yummie Tummie's instantly trimming tees. Each tee contains the line's signature slimming panel, which smooths bumps and prevents those dreaded muffin tops from popping up (and out!).

Look Slimmer in Leggings
If you're going to hop on the denim leggings trend, why not choose a pair that slims your silhouette? Paige combines comfortable leggings with high-quality stretch denim for a piece that's stylish and flattering to all figures. The forward-sitting side seams slim hips while the semi-contoured waistband prevents extra spillage-Heidi Klum sported a pair a few weeks after giving birth! Add sky-high heels to make your legs look even longer!

Wear Mascara Your Lashes Will Love
Say good riddance to the hassle of fake eyelashes or extensions! Lash Fusion XL mascara not only naturally curls, lengthens and thickens lashes, it also contains a patented Capisphere system, which keeps lashes looking healthy and lush even after removal.
