The actress has discovered the upside of the mood swings through which we all go.

On May 10, Courtney Hope shared to Instagram a gorgeous photo of herself looking fierce in a bright blue dress. If you’d told us she was on her way to an award show, we’d have believed you. (See for yourself below.)

“Today’s mood,” she captioned the picture before going on to explain that “some days I feel sporty, some days I feel sexy, some days I feel edgy, some days I feel rocker, some days I feel badass, some days I feel bloated and wanna snuggle in sweats all day… but lately… ”

“But I love it!” she added.
