Take Better Pictures
Shannon Campbell, Style Reporter
1. Create Your "Signature" Pose
Pull out all of your favorite pictures of yourself and see what you like. Once you know how you like yourself to look, it's much easier to replicate.
2. Know Your Angles
Twist your torso, turning one shoulder toward the camera and the other away from it. It makes you look very slender. Also know what to do with your arms, and where to place your hands
3. Don't Drink And Pose
Try to take pictures early, before drinking too much. You're more in control. And no matter how bright the flash is, your eyes will look droopy after drinks.
4. Stick Your Neck Out
Do what is called the "up and over". It feels absolutely ridiculous when you're doing it, but it makes your face look thinner and hides any sign of a double chin.
Keep enough distance between the person in the photo in case you want to crop them out.
6. What To Wear, Not To Wear
DON'T wear loose, baggy clothes. No patterns.
DO wear solids, bright colors, form fitting clothes. And everyone knows black is always the new black and always makes us look slim.

Keep potatoes white
Cover shredded or diced potatoes with cold water before cooking to prevent the spuds from turning that gross grayish/brown caused by the release of a starch that makes them oxidize.
Slow down rotting
Store tomatoes stem end down to keep them from spoiling as quickly. This prevents air from entering and moisture from exiting the scar where the tomato once attached to the vine. Storing them at room temperature rather than in the fridge also makes them last longer.
Save cut fruit from browning
You've probably heard that a little squeeze of lemon juice can keep apple slices from looking unappetizing. A mixture of one part honey to two parts water works much the same to keep fruit from browning. The citric acid and vitamin C in lemon juice as well as a peptide in honey slows down the oxidation process that causes discoloring.
Flip that banana upside down
Ever had issues prying into a banana? You're not alone. Instead of wasting precious fruit by hacking into the stem end with a knife, gently press the bottom together and peel the banana from the bottom up.
Peel that papery skin from ginger
Ditch the peeler in favor of a spoon to peel finicky ginger root.
Peel garlic the fuss-free way
Remove all cloves from the bulb, then whack each clove with the side of a chef's knife. The skin will fall right off.
Skim the fat
Spoon out excess fat from stocks, stews, and sauces by skimming a few ice cubes (wrapped in a paper towel or cheese cloth) along the surface of the liquid. The ice helps the fat solidify, making it easier to remove with a spoon or a piece of toast.
Pit cherries with ease
Place cherries on top of an empty beer bottle, one at a time, and use a chopstick to push the pit into the bottle.
Make cheese grating easier and less messy
Before grating semisoft cheeses such as fontina and fresh mozzarella, freezing it for about 30 minutes. 36. Soften butter faster (without a grater or rolling pin)
