"Maybe that's what life is... a wink of the eye and winking stars." -- Jack Kerouac

How to be Smarter: A strategy for locating Waldo faster. How to be Prettier: SP&A Exclusive Discount Code: With the promo code SPA15, SP&A readers you can get 15% off your order at jewelry store Linkel Designs. This is one of my favorite shops: I wear their pink Cameo Statement Ring several times a week, and it is one of my most beloved pieces of jewelry. [Expires on 12/13/13].

How to be (less) Awkward: At a fancier dinner, if you are not sure what silverware to use or what to do next in the meal, follow the host's lead or, if at a restaurant, the person who invited you's lead.
