…For myself!! I was feeling a bit down about SO not being as romantic as he used to be (see my previous post) and I kept thinking about how much I would love him to understand how I’m feeling and get me a really beautiful bunch flowers or an cheap but well chosen antique piece of jewellery for valentines instead of a far more expensive, but less meaningful present… and then I walked past an antiques jewellery store and saw it!!
It’s an antique half eternity saphire and CZ ring and really wasn’t expensive at all but when I tried it on it fit like a dream and I just decided to buy it! Then on the way home I bought myself a lovely bunch of fresh hyacinth and felt so so happy 🙂
I realised it was silly waiting for him to guess what would make me happy and decided that if I though I deserved an outrageously romantic gesture then I’d better just get one for myself 😀
I think I’m going to wear it everyday as a remininder that I don’t need to wait for a ring, I can’t get one any time I want haha! Made me feel a lot better about the situation

I totally did this for myself on my 25th birthday, and I still wear that ring daily on my right hand. I love it and what it represents for myself (independence and a so what I’m not engaged type of feeling)…

I almost bought myself a ring recently, I really wanted it but it would be very similar to what my eventual engagement ring looks like and my SO talked me out of it.
I bought two dresses instead, haha.

Thats Awesome! I did that too a couple years ago. I took my kids on vacation and bought myself TWO right hand rings. I dont buy stuff for myself often so they are very special to me.

Perfect! I love buying flowers for myself, they are pretty and cheer me up for a week and I get to feel all bad ass. (Okay, not sure why flowers are bad ass but getting them yourself kind of is.)
