New year, new you, eh? Girl, please. I think we both know how that goes. Remember last year? You started out well enough – filing your receipts, hitting the elliptical, volunteering at the local animal shelter. Then came February, and with it, doom. You started charging your lattes and trading workouts for sit-ins. By the time March rolled around, we found you in front of a Boy Meets World marathon eating peanut butter directly from the jar. Not cute.

This year, we’re serious about self-improvement. With the right amount of will and dedication, you can transform yourself into a gleaming, glamorous, Angelina-esque earth mother with solid finances and a great ass. But it won’t be easy. We’re talking blood, sweat, and tears, and probably other gross fluids as well. Thank God BeautyNewsNYC is here to give you the verbal abuse…I mean, encouragement you need to reach your goals.

Think of this as your own personal pep talk according to your sign. We’ll recommend the tools you’ll need as you battle your way to a newer, better you.
