How to be Smarter: If you want to stand out in a room, be different than everyone else in the room. How to be PrettierJewelMint (Kate Bosworth's jewelry site) is offering SP&A readers 50% off with the code BOCT50 at checkout. I'm pleased to offer that discount code, as I have been trying out JewelMint for the last month, and have been impressed with both the jewelry selection and the site experience. Enjoy!

P.S. This week, I'm going to be posting twice a day. Once in the morning with new content, and once in the afternoon with a favorite post or tip from the SP&A archives. SP&A will be three years old in December, and since I've picked up some new readers since the site first started, I want to give some old tips from 2008, 2009, and 2010 some special attention. Happy Monday!
