We’ve all experienced that sense of intimidation when going into a super expensive store at some point in our lives. We think: I don’t belong here. I can’t afford to even think about buying this stuff. Is security following me? Let me run! Here’s my advice: stop that.
When I was younger, my mom used to drive my brother and I through the nicer neighborhoods in Atlanta, and we would ogle at the gorgeous mansions. And just like that, I got it in my mind that I wanted to live in a mansion, and I started dreaming bigger. It was the same case when I decided to pop by Asprey, an internationally known jewelry company that has a retail location at the Setai Hotel in Miami Beach (2001 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139). Founded in 1781, Asprey has a long relationship with British royalty and holds a Royal Warrant for every British monarch and several other foreign heads of state. In short, their jewelry is fit for a Queen. So I decided to try some pieces on.
Now…I normally wear costume jewelry from Topshop and Aldo. I really don’t spend a lot on jewelry! It’s just never been a thing for me. But let me tell you when that ice touches your wrist…! I can see why Lil Wayne made a song called Bling Bling. There is nothing like it.
Diamonds can be simple and understated. They electrify an outfit unlike anything else. And though I don’t have diamond money at the moment (the snazzy set above retails at $100,000), let me tell you, I’m now dreaming of diamonds. I told the manager of the store, Emerald, that I would be coming back in a year to purchase those pieces.
Hold me to it.

I encourage you all to dream big. Give me one good reason why you shouldn’t have the best of everything in the world? I can’t see why not! And you deserve it.
Love + Light,
