How to be Smarter: When discussing a topic you're not familiar with, and a colleague, boss or date corrects something you've said, respond with a thoughtful question as opposed to "really?" or "are you sure?". A smart question keeps the conversation going, and helps you to still look engaged even if the topic is not one you know well. How to be Prettier: I love items in rainbow-order, and having this poster hanging up near my closet makes me smile each time I get dressed (and also reminds me to wear color).
How to be (less) Awkward: If you are meeting someone at the airport, make a cute sign with their name on it to hold while they come down the escalator towards baggage claim--it's an easy, fun way to make someone feel welcomed and appreciated after a trip.
