    Reed’s Jewelers Diamond Tennis Bracelet | GiGi New York Best Things Mini Book

    You know how the old saying goes…Diamonds are a girl’s best…FRIEND ♥ I find this to be especially true because I myself am a huge diamond + fine jewelry lover (what can I say, my mama raised me with a taste for the finer things in life, i.e. my car, bag collection + diamond obsession haha :p) While I certainly don’t have the funds to go out buying diamonds all the time, I learned over the years the importance of investing in the right diamond pieces that will last you a lifetime + can even become family heirlooms for years to come.

    I learned all I know about investing in the right types of diamonds from my mom so I gathered some of her tips, plus some helpful guidance from Reed’s Jewelers + voila…I’m now sharing my Diamond Buying Guide with you!

    What I’ve learned over the years is that buying diamonds always boils down to the all important 4 C’s!

    Do you know what they are? If not, I am breaking them down below!

    Cut, Color, Carat + Clarity

    So what do these all mean? Well I am breaking it own below:

    Carat – This is the one everyone talks about right? How many carats Kim K’s ring is etc. Carat refers to the size of the diamond once it is cut. The higher the number, the larger the diamond.

    Clarity – While most people automatically think a higher carat number means a better diamond, clarity is truly the most important thing when it comes to diamond shopping. Clarity means how clear + pristine the diamond is. Clarity is rated on a scale of F1, IF, VVS1 + VVS2, VS1 + VS2, SI1 + SI2, and I1, I2 + I3. Basically F1 is the BEST, it stands for Flawless, this means the diamond doesn’t show any inclusions, blemishes etc. A I1, I2 or I3 rating is the worst meaning the diamond has clearly visible blemishes + issues.

    Color – Diamond color is also a very important thing to pay attention to when diamond shopping. Color is rated on a scale from D to Z (D being the most pristine + colorless, Z being Yellow). The more yellow a diamond, the less it is worth. As for diamonds with a pink or blue tint, those are highly sought after + very valuable!

    Cut – Cut is another very important factor when it comes to diamond shopping. The deeper the cut, the better the diamond. For example, a pair of diamond studs or a ring with a shallow cut tend to not be as ‘brilliant’ as those with a deeper cut. Cut is something critically important when ring shopping in my opinion.

    Happy Weekend Babes ♥

    With spring just around the corner, I am beginning to stock up on some of my favorite trends of the season…starting with my newest obsession MULES!

    I was hesitant about the whole walking around in slippers trend when I first saw everyone in LA rocking the Gucci Princetown Mules with the fur, but eventually I came around and found some mules that fit my style + are easy to wear whether it is for work or play! Whether you are all about neutrals, or like a pop of color or to shine with some metallic (or even some quirky messaging), spring 2018 is the season of the mule so it’s time to embrace it and stock up on your favorite styles!

    Rounding up my favorite mules below based on price point (because you can embrace this trend on ANY budget)

    LOW || $10-$50

    I am all about testing out a trend at an entry level budget so I found that Target, Macy’s + DSW had some killer options when it comes to mules that won’t break the bank (plus since mules get worn out easily, it isn’t as devastating when you start seeing wear on them haha)

    MEDIUM || $50 – $150

    For medium range options I found a pretty amazing selection from Zappos + Nordstrom – all range from greta quality brands that won’t break the bank! 

    HIGH || $150+

    High end options ranging from Gucci to Chiara Ferragni to Tod’s + more I found at Saks, Bergdorf Goodman + Neiman Marcus (what I love about these options are that they are pretty unique from store to store + have such intricate detailing that will set you apart from the crowd if you are willing to make the investment)

    Happy Shopping ♥

    HATS

    I am LOVING this ‘Life’s a Beach‘ hat from The Mint Julep! It was the perfect way to protect my skin from too much sun exposure + it is honestly the cutest for flatlaying on the beach haha :p P.S. they have TONS of fun floppy hat options with different sayings!

    SANDALS

    Tory Burch has always been my go-to when it comes to sandals. They are great quality, comfy + I tend to opt for a metallic hue that matches with every look + accentuates your tan on the beach 😉

    SUNNIES

    I have been loving these fun sunnies from Diff Eyewear! They always have great sales, even better styles + I don’t stress about them getting scratched or anything at the beach because they have an affordable price point (as opposed to RayBans :p).

    SWIMWEAR + COVERUPS

    I had no clue Vera Bradley had such great swimwear + coverups till recently + now I am officially in love. They have great prints, cuts + styles that are easy to wear + comfy too!

    TOTES

    Ahh totes! I am all about a cute bag + I have been loving these straw totes for travel that have cute sayings + added pom poms for color!

    It’s FINALLY here!

    Mike + I are off to Disney World in Orlando today (our flight is later on tonight) so I spent last night packing my life into 2 suitcases haha(see more on my instastoriesMissyOnMadison)! We are celebrating my birthday which is just days away + our anniversary and what better place to do that than at the most magical place on earth – DISNEY! I have been such a Disney (and Universal fan) ever since I was a kid. My family used to go all the time + we went to all of the parks + would have breakfast + dinner with our favorite characters. Although I am turning 26 (crazy how fast time is passing by) I am still such a kid at ♥ so that’s why I am sharing some of my favorite Disney pieces to rock at the park or just in general!

    I actually found this Mickey + Minnie tee for just $5 (YES just $5) at Walmart! It comes in a variety of sizes + is perfect if you are trying to dress for the occasion on a budget 🙂

    CLOTHES

    These sneakers aren’t Disney related haha BUT they make for a comfy shoe to wear to the park + cost under $40!!! I was going to splurge on a bag too but this time didn’t but I am obsessed with all of these accessories below.

    SHOES, BAGS + JEWELS

    Now for the fun part…my Minnie Mouse Ears! Ok so Mike thinks I am crazy, but how adorable are these customized Minnie Ears I scored for under $40 on Etsy! I wanted to be prepared + save money before going to the park and discovered Etsy is filled with TONS of customized Minnie Ears.

    MINNIE EARS

    Are you a Disney lover like me? 

    Comment below + let me know! (hehe rhymed unintentionally :p)
