How to be Smarter: When you stop having fun, get out. This applies to jobs, relationships, and shopping trips. 

How to be Prettier: Comfort is not a reason, or an excuse, to wear anything. 
How to be (less) Awkward: If you have a dream about someone, especially if its weird, don’t tell them. No one wants to know that you dream of them taming whales. Especially if its a boy.

How to be Smarter: If you really want to do something, whether it be updating your blog or going for a run, write it in your planner so you have the constant reminder all day and once you do it, its one more thing to cross off your to-do list (everyone loves that feeling….)

How to be lets you track your workouts and food you eat, and is 100 percent free.

How to be (less) AwkwardFree samples from Dove– Especially try the mini deodorants because you can throw a small one in your purse and reapply mid-day in summer heat. NOT ballin to smell bad.

How to be Smarter: Paint your nails with light colors so chipping isn’t as obvious.

How to be Prettier: Spinning can burn up to 800 calories and is offered at most gyms.

How to be Smarter: Everyone is loving these days; be the first kid on the new bandwagon,

How to be Prettier: Hair off your face and out of your eyes for all job interviews; a well-placed bobby pin is your friend here.

How to be (less) Awkward: No crying at work. No exceptions. If you feel the tears coming, take a walk to the Starbucks and chill for ten minutes. Never let one tear fall in your place of employment.

How to be Smarter: As Rihanna sings, “In anticipation for the precipitation/Stack chips for a rainy day.” Clouds can come from anywhere so build those networking contacts, financial reserves, and your mental toughness up now.

How to be Prettier: Slate gray is the color of nail polish for spring. I know this is true because every style icon I see has this color on her nails.

How to be (less) Awkward: Everyone has people they admire and emulate to be like. To get pumped up before a big speech or interview, watch youTube clips of people you think are intelligent and well-spoken. It will rub off on you!
