"Every cloud has its silver lining but it is sometimes a little difficult to get it to the mint" -- Don Marquis

 How to be Smarter: In most cases, avoid wearing mint green with stark red, as the combination looks too Christmas-like. How to be Prettier: I was obsessed with Essie's new Mint Candy Apple shade from the minute I saw it on a co-worker's nails, and got the color painted on mine immediately. Here are some other things in the same lovely color: a prom dress, a bathing suit, and sunglasses with a sunglass case.

How to be (less) Awkward: "If someone offers you a breath mint, accept it" -- H. Jackson Brown Jr.
