How to be Smarter: Anyone part of the blogging community, or wants to know more about social media to distinguish their resume, should read Tara Hunt’s The Whuffie Factor.

How to be Prettier: Perfume is an investment; a nice bottle of perfume is expensive, but if only used a bit at a time it will become both your signature scent and last quite a while. 
How to be (less) Awkward: If someone keeps trying to walk out of your life, stop holding the door shut and begging for them to stay. Let them go.

How to be Prettier: Don’t wear a size 8 if you are a size 10. 
How to be (less) Awkward: If you’re buying awkward things (tampons, feminine items, 2-for-1 candy bar specials, etc) at the nearest drugstore, cover the items in your basket with a magazine until you get to the counter in case you meet any cute boys on the way up the front.

How to be Smarter: Things that you write down as a goal tend to come true faster than things you just think/wish about coming true. 

How to be Prettier: Swap the morning coffee for an apple. It will save your teeth from getting coffee stains, and an apple can wake up just as much as a coffee (this sounds like an exaggeration but it is actually not). 
How to be (less) Awkward: Upbeat music in the morning. No one benefits from starting their day off with music about breakups/death/living alone. Sorry Bright Eyes.

How to be Smarter: If you get 1 percent better each day then you were the previous day, by the end of the year, you will be three times better than where you started. 

How to be PrettierCiao Bella’s Sicilian Blood Orange Sherbet  is fat free and low in calories. Bonus: I like it so much, I would marry it.
How to be (less) Awkward: When packing for a summer vacation, you don’t need to bring more than five pairs of shoes: one pair sandals, one pair flats, two pairs of heels, and one misc.

How to be Smarter: Fill negative space when taking pictures, and also fill negative space in your life (with something not involving reality television). 

How to be Prettier: Use tubes of lotions and beauty products is better than tubs because tubs are breeding grounds for bacteria from your hands.
How to be (less) Awkward: Keep your mouth shut until you understand what’s happening around you when in a new situation.
