How to be Smarter: Make sure your goals are far enough away to be challenging, close enough to be reasonable, tangible enough to be measured, and something meaningful enough to your heart that you will follow through.
How to be Prettier: When you first buy a bra, never put it on the smallest setting the first times you wear it-it will stretch out over time anyways, and then you will have no way to shrink it back down.
How to be (less) Awkward: Nobody says your socks need to match to be respectable, or that you have to lose five pounds to be attractive, or that you need to go to an Ivy League to succeed. Well, some people say it, but I find the happiest people are the ones who don’t make dumb rules like that for other people to follow.
This is a sampling from one of my favorite blogs, Smart Pretty and (less) Awkward. I have been reading Molly’s blog as a daily pick-me-up for quite some time now and when she graciously accepted the offer to guest blog on Everyday to Runway I was ecstatic to share her with all my readers! Every day Molly shares a great quote and three tips to help you become a smarter, prettier and less awkward woman. Whether it’s a book recommendation or a tip to help out a friend her “how to be smarter” section always intrigues me, while her prettier section always inspires me for new Everyday to Runway posts, but I have to say my favorite are always the (less) awkward tips, advising you to never ask a woman if she’s pregnant (bad news bears if you’re wrong), or giving you an excuse for watching a guilty-pleasure movie by saying “it was only thing on when I was on that plane last month!” I love it and I love her fun tips and quotes to get my day started…
Here’s a mini-interview with Molly herself…

What are your top 3 must-have beauty products?
Hmmm…definitely brown mascara, so versatile for day, and at night I like to layer it with black. Crest Whitestrips for teeth, and I always use whitening toothpaste and floss, too. For nails, definitely Essie, I find it lasts the longest. I also get a manicure every week, and I try not to repeat colors too often, and Essie has a ton of options.
