This is... Me (gatecrashing the) Taking A Photo Of Myself In The Mirror With My Favourite Accessory Meme

No posts for a week and then four in two days... you may have noticed that consistency is not my strongpoint...

I hope no-one minds me gatecrashing... I've been lurking for weeks, really enjoying everyone's This is.. meme thought up by Three Buttons.

This weeks This is.... posed a bit of a problem - not a single decent mirror in this apartment. It's funny what you put up with when you know you're only going to be in a place for only a while.

So, my favourite accessory, is that red ring - my engagement ring. While I love diamonds as much as the next girl, I never really imagined having a diamond ring for as an engagement ring. To me, diamonds are a cold, hard beauty and that's not how I see love. To me, love is about celebration, marriage about growth, so I wanted a ring that signified those qualities. I wanted colour. We went to a jeweller whose work I liked for its organic quality. At first, we looked at rubies, but again, there were so many hard, sharp angles. After a few design sessions, in a stroke of genius, he suggested red coral. That was it! And so, my engagement ring was born. My wedding ring is the small band on my pinkie finger.

WOW! WoW, that is one of the coolest rings I've ever seen, and it is even more amazing that it's your engagement ring. It really is most unique and original. Just amazing!

Ooooh, I REALLY love that ring - it is definitely much more a ring of life and love than a diamond would be. Welcome to the game!!! (I was a gatecrasher early on in the piece).
