and one thing

[IMG00262.jpg]
so today I bought myself a belated birthday present.
a "i'm 18, I want to be able to look down at my hand years down the line and remember how much fun I was having, ps, I've been working hard to save" treat, if you will.
had a lovely chat with the woman at the counter while I bought it. her nametag said Grace. we exchanged stories about Topshop and Harvey nicks (where I bought it) and discussed how Reiss isn't what it used to be and how Philip Green is a scary mofo.
i know, i know, it's a ring that many a people have but i've wanted it for ages now.
and it makes me happy.

Great minds think alike! I wanted to buy that for myself as a belated 18thbirthday present... except I saw it in Browns and they sold out and I didn't think to look in harvey knicks because i'm an IDIOT. Ah well. I shall live vicariously..
