"Any closet is a walk-in closet if you try hard enough" -- Steve Connelly

How to be Smarter: As a music-lover I'm always happy to pay for the privilege to listen to an artist's work. But before I buy a song on iTunes, I always give it one or two (free) listens on YouTube first to make sure I enjoy it enough to own it before spending the money to download it. How to be Prettier: My advice for women just beginning to enjoy fashion: 'wear what you like and what is within your budget-- don't go into debt getting designer labels.' (Quote from my interview with Lulu's which you can read here).

How to be (less) Awkward:  Be an enthusiastic audience member: always clap at concerts or performances, even if you have to put your drink or program down to do so.
