Holiday Party Survival Guide

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - With the holiday season here and lots of parties to attend, you'll want to look your best. Aprilanne Hurley, author of "The Party Girl Diet," has some quick beauty tips that will give you results "overnight."

Tip #1: Avoid salt and alcohol to reduce bloating. Drink lots of water and green tea to flush toxins out of your system.

Tip #2: Eat salmon, asparagus and fresh vegetables, full of heart-healthy fats and antioxidants. (Asparagus is a natural diuretic.) If you need to indulge in something sweet, opt for dark chocolate.

Tip #3: Use 5-8 lb. hand weights to give your arm muscles instant definition.

Tip #4: Use self-tanner as a safe "sun alternative" to get a healthy glow. A little bronzer will instantly define your features, on your face, arms and decollatege!

Meet Aprilanne Hurley at the "Party Girl Diet" book signing party Thursday night from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Bairz Lounge in the Honolulu Club, located at 932 Ward Ave., Honolulu, HI 96814. RSVP at (415) 887-8888 or e-mail
