How to be Smarter: Just a really incredible book about how to approach both writing and life. A new favorite of mine. (I especially loved the school lunches chapter). How to be Prettier: Regardless of trends, a fall nail polish color that is always classic is a true red (like Essie's Who's She Red, which is on my fingers currently).
How to be (less) Awkward: When someone waves or smiles at you, wave or smile back.
