"For my part I know nothing with any certainty, but the sight of the stars makes me dream" -- Vincent van Gogh

How to be Smarter:  In relationships, the problem isn't that life is too short, it's that life is too long. Life is too long to spend each day staring at a phone that doesn't ring; life is too long to spend each day silently wishing your boyfriend or girlfriend treated you better; life is too long to come home to a house each day and be unhappy with who you are sharing it with. Life is too long to be unexcited about who you share your heart with. How to be Prettier: If the current colorblocking trend seems too bright or too bold for your closet, start small. Instead of your usual white cardigan, grab a pale yellow one; instead of your usual black blazer, try a red one; instead of your usual nude shoes, switch to cobalt blue ones. Simple swaps from neutral colors to bright ones can revamp a wardrobe, and as long as the pieces are in classic shapes, they can remain in your closet long after the colorblocking trend is over.

How to be (less) Awkward: If you are planning on getting a pedicure post-work, but still want to wear tights to your job, stirrup tights are your new friends (I own that pair in black!).
