where there’s a will, there’s a way

Hats aren’t just for wearing on heads. I ordered this little beauty from Asos a while ago (it came in the same package as the items mentioned in this post). I forgot to photograph it at the time so didn’t mention it. I had to order this ring in a small because all the other sizes were sold out. I was quite certain that it wouldn’t fit my fat fingers, but I didn’t care because I just had to have it. Initially, it didn’t even make it past my middle knuckle. But after a lot of nagging and persistence on my part, and a little ingenuity on my dad’s part, we were able to resize it. Where there’s a will, there’s a way!

    1. Your dad must be a sweet, and incredibly helpful man.
    2. That is the most precious jewelry design I've seen in the past few months. Wonderful purchase on your part.
    3. I can't believe I haven't been visiting your blog in months! This is what happens when I don't keep up with bloglovin'. Merde.

    holy moly, that is freakin amazing.

    I had a dream about buying boater hats at a shop. I found this magical shop that had lots of beautiful boater hats, and I was going to buy them, when this little kid started pouring milk inside them and ruined them…it was weird.

    Ai! Persistence is the key! Otherwise you'll go through life regretting things you could've done if you don't work towards it. In this case you wouldn't have such a cute hat ring ahah.
