How to be Smarter: Book Recommendation: Daring Greatly by Brene Brown. An amazing read about the importance of being and feeling vulnerable to live a more fulfilling, genuine life. How to be Prettier: "Tailor your clothes, even if they weren’t expensive, and even if the tailor is just the guy at the dry cleaner." [Source, with other great beauty/fashion tips].
How to be (less) Awkward: "Remember, life is kind of like a party. You invite a lot of people, some leave early, some stay all night, some laugh with you, some laugh at you, and some show up really late. But in the end, after the fun, there are a few who stay to help you clean up the mess. And most of the time, they aren’t even the ones who made the mess. These people are your real friends in life." -- Great quote from this article on 15 Things Real Friends Do Differently.
