Hi lovelies!! TGIF!! How was your week? The first part of my week was pretty stressful, as I crammed a lot of studying in for a quiz I had Tuesday, but once that stress passed, I had a productive and lovely week. We are having a family reunion of sorts this weekend, so I am really looking forward to time spent with family and loved ones, plus my mom’s birthday is Sunday, so celebrating another year of her being here on Earth is always a treat! Every week I share pictures (via Instagram, or my regular iPhone camera) of things that made me smile.

These are some things that made me smile this week:

  • Finding this belt made of various ropes while looking for vintage clutches.
  • Last Friday’s wrist soiree and small ring party :-).
  • Finally getting a chance to wear these pink booties from Zara!
  • Metallic and glitter on my nails.
  • A big bright full moon :-).
  • A scripture reminding me to be thankful. There’s something about gratitude that’s smile inducing!
  • Rediscovering this ring that I made over a year ago.
  • Fall essentials for class and a meeting.
  • The many kind words of encouragement from you all after learning of my domestic violence experience in this post :-).
  • Catching two classics on tv, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” and “School Daze.”
  • Serving a BIG God!! I LOVE knowing that as big as I think my dreams are, God’s dreams for me are bigger.
  • Having the luxury of offering a Clutched & Covered sale, just because I feel like it :-).

Now it’s your turn!! What are some things that made you smile this week?

  • Turn that belt into a necklace. I found a very similar belt while thrifting and it would not fit around my waist, so it is now my necklace. I have recived so many compliments whenever I wear it.

  • I love your BOLD fashion choices! Those ankle boots are outrageously FUN!!!!!!

  • Yet another nice post! Have fun with your family and your mother’s birthday!
    I love your nails to by the way! (I do think you mean glitter in stead of litter, but that goes without saying 😉 )
    What made me smile this week is that my best friend and her boyfriend moved in together in a lovely appartment.
