Lea Michele has been slowly recovering from the death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, so we're happy to see the actress anytime she has a smile on her face.

The "Glee" star posted beautiful Twitter photos of herself looking happy and goofy surrounded by friends and hair and makeup artists while preparing for a glamorous photo shoot for her upcoming book Brunette Ambition.

The book, which is due on bookstore shelves next spring, will be "part memoir, part how-to and part style guide" and will discuss the gorgeous TV star's beginnings "from normal Bronx-born schoolgirl to Broadway child star to lead actress in one of the most popular shows on television," according to a report.

Lea even shared several behind-the-scenes photos of the book's cover shoot on Twitter in May, which showed the the brown-eyed vixen getting her eyebrows tweezed and her hair up in clips.

We're glad to see Lea looking happy so soon after Monteith's untimely death.

The Canadian actor, who also starred in "Glee," was found dead in a hotel room in Vancouver on July 13, after taking a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol.

The series will deal with Monteith's character Finn in the third episode by writing him out of the show.

Lea paid an emotional and moving tribute to her beloved at the Teen Choice Awards earlier this month saying, "we were very lucky to witness [Cory's] incredible talent, his handsome smile and his beautiful, beautiful heart."
