"The tragedy in life doesn’t lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach" -- Benjamin Mays

How to be Smarter: You know how when you were little and you didn't want to eat something, you would be encouraged to try "just one bite"? Keep that habit up as an adult. Before deciding something is not for you, try it for a second just to be sure it's not you're new favorite food/activity/website/author/nail polish/etc. How to be Prettier: If you layer two pairs of tights, any holes won't be noticeable as two different pairs rarely get snags in the same places. (The tights need to be thin and the same color for this to work).

How to be (less) Awkward: In an email conversation, it helps to end each email with a question to keep the conversation moving.


P.S. This month, Smart Pretty and Awkward turns 3 and a half years old! And one year ago today is also when I launched the newsletter Coffee with Molly...thank you for your amazing support. (As always, you can follow SP&A on Facebook, Twitter, Bloglovin', or Tumblr). xo, Molly
