The Post-Holiday Savior: SPANX

 The Post Holiday Savior: SPANX

Still holding on to a few post-holiday pounds? Yeah, me too. Luckily, when armed with these slimming saviors, I know I can take my time getting back to the gym. With tanks, tights, and even swimsuits that lift and smooth, what’s a few more days in front of the fire with family and a plate full of leftovers?

For the Post-Holiday Vacation
No one likes to brave the beach when they’re feeling bloated, but with this black and white number – part of the “Whittle Waistline” collection – cover-ups might just become a thing of the past.

For the Return to the Office
Worn under a blazer, this simple, slimming tank hides last weekend’s fruitcake consumption in a flash.

For Getting Back to the Dating Scene
With this seamless, smoothing underwear, you’ll walk into any dinner date feeling as confident as can be.

Our SPANX Boutique opens Thursday, December 27, at 11AM ET.

Holiday Cleanup: Repurposed Wrapping Paper

It’s official – the holidays are over. And if you’re anything like me, there’s a sea of crinkled-up wrapping paper left on your living room floor. But this year, instead of throwing it all out, I’m taking a cue from craft guru Martha Stewart and putting all that leftover paper to good use.

1. For post-holiday dinner parties, serve cocktails on a drink tray lined with leftover metallic paper.
2. Resolving to get organized for the New Year? Make it that much easier with these decorative box labels made from recycled wrapping paper.
3. Keep your place in all those books you were gifted with a homemade bookmark made of wrapping paper.
4. The best way to say thanks for that oh-so-sweet gift? A card made from the wrapping paper it came in.
