How to be Smarter: When calling close friends or family, every once in a while instead of just hitting the contact name, practice manually dialing the digits in case you are ever without your phone and need to have important numbers memorized. How to be Prettier: An SP&A Exclusive Discount Code: With the promo code SALE10, you can get 10% off your order at Nest Pretty Things, valid until 1/10.  [I bought these Crystal Dangle Earrings from here recently, and I also have my eye on these Vintage Black Rose Cameo Posts, as well as these Chandelier Earrings, which I'd probably wear to every girls' brunch until the end of time].

How to be (less) Awkward: Not awkward, just awesome: template of a fun New Year's Resolution letter to yourself.
