"Dreams are nothing more than wishes" -- "The Puppy Song," Harry Nilsson

How to be Smarter: "Tea deserves special mention on any list of the world's healthiest foods. The second most widely consumed beverage in the world (after water), all forms of tea (black, oolong, white, green and the newer Yerba Matte) are loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatories." (Source: "Healthiest Foods on Earth," msn.com).  How to be Prettier: Acid wash jeans are going to be huge for fall. If you can't get on-board with the pure acid wash, full-on jeans for fall, start with an acid washed jean skirt

How to be (less) Awkward: Don't assume people spend their days stalking you on facebook. "Well, I'm sure you saw the pictures of my Alps vacation on facebook..." is not an appropriate way to respond when someone asks you how you are doing. It sounds pretentious.
