Free Yourself from Body Jail! 5 New Year Beauty Resolutions that Don’t Involve Dieting

By Fern Olivia
Fern OliviaOften times, the New Year brings forth an immense amount of pressure to shape up, perform, and “finally do things right.” We’re often really, really hard on ourselves when it comes to our resolutions. Let’s change that, babes. We’re doing the best we can!
