Shopping for special items can be a cool way to spend time. It gives you a chance to get out of the house, finally, after multiple comparisons and buy that item. Buying an engagement ring is even more special, as you know that the lady who will be wearing it is quite special and you will be spending your lives together. With multiple designs and stores to choose from, it may seem a bit daunting to go through the process alone. It is one of the biggest purchases that you will probably make. So here is a shopping guide to take the stress out of your shopping trip.

Planning

Plan on what you think your to be would like. Ask around, talk to her sisters, mom and friends to get an idea about the ring that she would like. It is possible that she has discussed some wedding plans and tales with her friends and maybe tapping into that will give you a very clear idea. Because your partner is going to wear the ring, having some input from her would be fantastic.

Budget

Budget is a basic that you need to decide on and one that you have to have covered. There was a marketing ploy that talked about having a ring that was equivalent of three months salary. But you don’t have to follow this. Rings can be of any cost but they will be serving a higher sentimental value. You can pick up a ring that your budget allows. An engagement ring will be bought once and worn a lifetime, so you need to choose carefully.

Ring size

Measure your fiancés ring finger to know the ring size. Proposals are a surprise so you may want to get the correct ring size, making for a perfect proposal. This reminds of a story though of Queen Elizabeth. When she was proposed by Prince Philip, her ring was larger than her ring finger and it was resized after. So, it is ok for little bloopers to happen, but a good thing to keep in mind.

Ring type

Choosing the ring type may be a good thing to consider as it will play into your budget. Do you want a simple band or the band should be in a particular shape or form? Some rings can have a twisted band to look prettier. Then you need to decide the metal to be used for the band. Gold, platinum, white gold and rose gold are choices that you have. Some can even go for silver bands. Whichever band you choose, it will again affect your budget. You can find a lot of options through markets such as Hatton Garden Jewellery.

The stone

Check out the stone that you want to be added to your ring. Diamonds have the four Cs for their classification and grading. This will tell you how your diamond would look like and its quality. The cut of the stone will determine its sparkle factor, the facets that would show off more light. The carat is the weight or size of the diamond and this will determine the cost and value. Clarity means the number of inclusions in the diamond, the more it has clarity, the higher the price. You can choose different cuts of the stone depending on ring size and design. Princess, cushion and asscher are some popular cuts used.

Market

The next thing you need to have in mind is the market or channel through which you want to get the ring. You could buy online or check out a large physical market. For engagement rings in London, many go to the Hatton Garden as it is a well-known diamond market. Markets like these can give you the advantage of comparison and more offers.

Shonda Rimes’ ‘Bridgerton’ Fashion Is Making A Comeback In 2021

Shonda Rimes Bridgerton Fashion Comeback 2021

Do it. Be bold.

“Bridgerton’ is a period drama created by Chris Van Dusen and produced by Shonda Rhimes based on a series of novels written by Julia Quinn. The show follows the eight siblings of the Bridgerton family as they attempt to find love and happiness in London high society.

Since its release, Bridgerton has taken the world by storm and has left every viewer talking about it. While fans of the show have been left with a lot to discuss, one of the conversations I hear most frequently is about fashion. Fans can’t get enough of the show’s regal and vintage fashion. So much so that this new interest in fashion from this era has been dubbed as “Regencycore.” As the popularity of this show and similar shows only continues to grow, I suspect to see this trend only continue to grow throughout the next year. So here is how I think Bridgerton and Regencycore style will affect fashion trends in 2021.

1. Corset tops

Over the years, corset tops have started to make a comeback. It started slow but began gaining popularity in 2019 when women viewed them as a way to accentuate their figure. Now it is one of the best ways to achieve a vintage look with a modern twist. Personally, I think vibrant corset tops will be all the rage as we get into the spring months.

2. Puff sleeves

Throughout 2020, puff sleeves were a major trend and I think it will remain pretty popular throughout the next year. I’ve already seen a lot of women rock a puff sleeve corset detail top this year. Honestly, this trend is a hit with me and I really hope it sticks around.

3. Floral

Floral is a trend that is constantly coming and going. You really can’t ever get rid of it. For the spring, I think floral is going to be a staple in fashion in order to help achieve the vintage aesthetic that many want to achieve.

4. Midi Dresses

This spring, I think midi dresses are going to be another great way for individuals to achieve a vintage aesthetic. The reason I think that midi dresses will be so popular is that is it is a great way you can combine some of the other trends as well. There are so many cute midi dresses that also combine florals or a puff sleeve. There’s also something very elegant and whimsical about this style of dress that I think a lot of people will like.

5. All of the accessories

In Bridgerton, the women are known to over-accessorize. In order to achieve this look, I see a move less towards dainty jewelry and back towards statement pieces. I also see headpieces such as headbands, ribbons, and maybe even flower crowns coming back. That will really depend on how people decide to style it. Finally, in accessories, I’ve read a lot about gloves. Personally, I am not really interested in gloves but I know a lot of people are feeling inspired to bring gloves back in fashion.

They’re Changing The New Normal-Rafi Nova Is Making Clear Masks For The Deaf Community

Changing New Normal-Rafi Nova Is Making Clear Masks
Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

Rafi Nova is changing the “new normal” for the better by creating masks with a transparent mouth covering for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community.

Rafi Nova is a company started by two people who had the vision to sell accessories for traveling. Unfortunately, the company was launched just weeks before the Coronavirus pandemic hit and the sudden decrease in travel negatively impacted their business.

After coming together to decide what they should do moving forward, they decided to make the best of a bad situation when one of the founder’s children said to make masks.

They decided to take making masks one step further and accommodate a community in need during this new normal of mask-wearing. Now, Rafi Nova makes masks with a clear panel in the front so that people who are deaf and hard of hearing can see people’s mouths underneath their masks.

Along with the making of clear masks, Rafi Nova has a work environment that is unmatched by any other.

Their company is like a family and the work community present at Rafi Nova made the transition from their normal products to masks that much easier.

Founders Adam and Marissa Goldstein had some great ideas thus far in their career as business owners and in addition to sharing information on the smiling mask, shared some information and tips on how to become a successful business owner.

I had the absolute privilege of interviewing the founders about their new masks and their business practices and here is what they said:

1. How was the company name decided upon and created?

Rafi Nova was inspired by our travels with our two sets of children – Raya, Efi, Noa, and Eva. We want to build a company that reflects our values and there is nothing that reflects that more clearly than your children.

2. How was the shift from regular products to masks?

We launched Rafi Nova as an accessories brand with the mission to inspire parents to get out and go in February 2020 — which was probably the worst time in history to launch a brand encouraging travel.

Just a few weeks after the launch, the coronavirus pandemic struck, and we needed to reevaluate our plan for the brand. We spent some time brainstorming solutions, until one day our daughter Eva said “make masks.”

3. How are the masks constructed to benefit the deaf and hard-of-hearing communities?

We make the Smile Masks with a wide clear panel that allows the mask wearer’s mouth to be visible.

We also made sure that the masks had adjustable straps to accommodate hearing aids or cochlear implants.

While the Smile Mask was designed with the hard of hearing and the deaf community in mind, we have seen that the masks are beneficial to a wide variety of communities and professions. Facial expressions are essential in establishing trust.

4. What is your greatest takeaway from shifting your company’s focus to benefit the consumer need amidst a pandemic?

Create well-made, thoughtful products that people need!

5. What is your favorite part about running a business?

Being able to build an amazing team and getting to work with them every day!

6. What kind of work environment do you have at your company? Is everyone friends outside the office?

Yes! We have a super fun, very open, and collaborative atmosphere. At the same time, everyone is extremely hard working and gets their work done.

7. What is the best piece of advice to give to anyone who wants to start their own company?

Just do it! The timing will never be perfect. If you wait until everything is “perfect” you will miss out on the opportunity. Start small — but just start!

With business advice like this, Rafi Nova is clearly an up and coming company with founders that have a sense of community.

The ability for them to flip the switch from travel accessories to masks is a pretty admirable feat and one that should definitely be recognized.

Their products are, in a way, one of a kind as there isn’t anything on the market right now quite like the smiling mask.

The smiling mask comes in a two-pack that retails for $30, accommodates cochlear implants and hearing aids, and enables people to continue using non-verbal communication.

There are also sales and deals for certain products as they make regular masks, kids masks, and anti-fog masks in addition to the smiling mask with the clear panel.

Rafi Nova is doing a great thing for all sorts of people that will benefit from being able to regain the use of non-verbal communication like teachers, speech pathologists, and those that are deaf and hard of hearing.
