"You can say any foolish thing to a dog, and the dog will give you a look that says, ‘Wow, you’re right! I never would’ve thought of that!" -- Dave Barry

How to be Smarter: Book Recommendation: Do Cool Sh*t: Quit Your Day Job, Start Your Own Business, & Live Happily Ever After by Miki Agrawal. The whole book is a rallying cry for not just why you should do what you love, but the practical how to get your idea off the ground. Miki also includes other cool tidbits, like best practices for staying healthy while being an entrepreneur and how she married her husband at Burning Man. It's a comprehensive book that would be perfect if you're looking to shake-up your mindset. How to be Prettier: Love this J.Crew factory lace dress, which comes in black, blue, and red: perfect for holiday events. I just bought it in blue, and it's also currently 35% off with the code YOUWIN.

How to be (less) Awkward: Not awkward, just adorable: I love this new Barbie ad.
