Hey lovelies.  As I write this post (on Thursday evening) I am finding it very hard to write about smiling, as something pretty horrid happened to me on Thursday, of which I don’t know how, when, or if I will share with y’all some day.  However, I have experienced some smile inducing things this week, and I always find writing these post to be therapeutic!  Every week I share pictures (from my cell phone, via Instagram, or regular iPhone camera) of things that made me smile.

These are some things that made me smile this week:

  • My latest Julep Maven box (it’s been a few month since I ordered one)!
  • A funny message at the post office.
  • Vintage jewelry ;-).
  • Getting the necklace I won in Tanvii’s giveaway in the mail.
  • Printed pants.
  • A lunch date with the niece and nephew :-).
  • My July 4th mani.
  • Looking at gorgeous jewelry in the African and Indonesian exhibits at the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.  I wanted it all!! lol

Now it’s your turn to tell me some things that made you smile this week!  When you share your smiles, I smile too :-).


  • Hey Rocquelle, I am praying for you during this trying time in your life. I love you and there is absolutely nothing you can do about it. If you need anything don’t hesitate to contact me love. Take care of yourself!

  • As I sit here thinking of the words to express all I can say is I love you more than the world knows. You are one of the reasons I smile daily. You keep me going when I feel there is nothing else there. You believe in me when I don’t believe in myself. Trust a rainbow comes after the storm & to live fearlessly one must dance in the rain! Have a fabulous Friday.
