How to be Smarter: Having a bookshelf is my number one recommendation for decorating a space. I strongly believe in the value and the power of surrounding yourself with literature that inspires you. Whether memoirs, social media how-to's or just books with pretty covers are your fancy, a stocked bookshelf is a necessity whether you live in a dorm room or a mansion. (As a note, all of the books I just linked to are currently sitting on my bookshelf). How to be Prettier: When one nail chips, but you can't find the color to rematch it to your other nails, remove the nail polish on the same finger of the other hand and paint both nails a new different color. With both fingers matching, a different color choice will look intentional and not sloppy.
How to be (less) Awkward: Good-looking people in old photographs. (For reference, the word 'Daguerreo' in the title refers to the pre-20th century photography process).
