How to be Prettier: SP&A Exclusive Discount Code: With the promo code smartprettyawk, SP&A readers you can get 25% off your first purchase from the awesome underwear shop Dear Kate. This is a business I am extremely proud to support on SP&A — started by a female engineer, the entire line is both girlie and well-designed.
