"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Perfect Moment Monday: Bling for Mama

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that "Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."

I've had a series of perfect moments while getting ready to go to BlogHer. I was trying to figure out what I wanted to wear and was trying to save money so I decided to deconstruct and remake an outfit I had. I was given an outfit made of beautiful blue material but the cut was totally unflattering. The shirt was a long sleeved shirt with a boxy cut and. the pants were kind of shapeless.
After a few days work, I ended up with this (please ignore the poofy hair)...
Then I went to Avenue's web site to check out some boots Miss Tori from The Winding Road to Parenthood bought and stumbled across their sale. With the coupon code, I got this dress for under $30...
The, I found this awesome watch and bracelet...

and this costume jewelry set...
and, I got both the watch bracelet set and the costume jewelry set for under $10.

Go check out the other perfect moments at this week's Perfect Moment Monday on Weebles Wobblog.
