"So much sadness exists in the world that we are all under obligation to contribute as much joy as lies within our powers" -- John Sutherland Bonnell

How to be Smarter: If you keep turning your alarm off in your sleep, put it across the room so you have to physically get out of bed to turn it off. How to be Prettier: A designer item that you bought for the label only is a poor purchase. If you're going to buy a designer piece, ask yourself if the item is something you'd also buy if it was from a discount store. Otherwise you are less likely to wear or use it, regardless of how much you spent on it.

How to be (less) Awkward: If you miss shopping with a friend who lives in a different place, chose a day and a time to go shopping 'together.' Choose the same or a similar store and by talking on the phone, describing pieces, and picture messaging photos of outfit options, you can still go shopping 'together.' Afterwards, both go get a smoothie and just chat on the phone while you catch up!
