Our Mission

Welcome to Smarts and Sparkles, a blog dedicated to YOU. Our – my – mission is to develop a site dedicated to the improvement of the lives of people like me: young adults. Through extensive planning, research, and late-night conversations, I’ve discovered what I believe should be the most important and rather stressful aspects in the life of a modern-day young adult or student: school, socialization, and self-care (the three s’s, if you will…) From providing excerpts and techniques from bestselling mindfulness books to creating step-by-step tutorials on effective writing styles, this blog is ready and well-equipped to help you with whatever task you are facing.

At school, we learn the fundamentals of how to create friendships and a variety of other relationships (including those that are platonic, professional, and possibly romantic), and slowly understand how to take care of ourselves and adapt to our surroundings.

And finally, self-care is learned primarily through the experiences we have at school and through our social lives – everyone’s interpretation of self-care is a little different, but what is common to our interpretation is that self-care is a necessary thing – and that’s because it is.
