How to be Smarter: Learn how to get by on less sleep, and do something productive with the time you spend awake. I can cut my sleep down from 7 hours to 5.5 hours by having one extra cup of coffee in the morning, and I spend that 1.5 hours working on other fun projects I wouldn't get a chance to otherwise. How to be Prettier: When I was on vacation this past weekend, I walked behind a girl that was wearing the most adorable outfit. I have tried to find matching pieces online: black leggings, flat black sandals, a red and white striped tunic, and a blue clutch. The look was casually nautical, and totally cool.
How to be (less) Awkward: Pretty much every online store has an email address. If you buy something and you love it, send a quick email and tell them how happy their product made you! Especially if the item is from a cute, small online store or off of Etsy--everyone loves hearing that their product makes people happy.
