"The aim of argument, or of discussion, should not be victory, but progress" -- Joseph Joubert

How to be Smarter: Over the weekend, I devoured my two latest reading books: Bossypants by Tina Fey and A Place of Yes by Bethenny Frankel. I recommend both as funny, inspiring reads by a strong female author. How to be Prettier: Disclosure: I own a lot of rompers. However, I like this high-necked romper (in leopard) because it provides more coverage on top than most other styles, but because of the slightly lower-cut sides, I usually pair it with a black bandeau top that looks intentional if it peeks out.

How to be (less) Awkward: An "I miss you" text out-of-the-blue showing up on your phone's screen always feels more spontaneous and heartfelt than an "I miss you" that comes at the end of a texting conversation (whether the "I miss you" is coming from a sweetie, a friend, or a sibling).
