Starting up my very own eCommerce platform during the lockdown may be a great thing as I don’t have much to do for work. I did thorough research on product development, trending markets, and upcoming styles. It’s been a while since my last session in a classroom where I have to participate virtually and have collaborated class assignments. This week has been very grueling, however with patience and consistent performance on a personal level it has made this lockdown somewhat a blessing in disguise.
Today’s blog post will be different, Eid is just around the corner, and being in lockdown has made society spend less in general and even more in the festivities. If one thing COVID-19 has taught us, from a business point of view, never to have your eggs in one basket. For the employers that I work for as well as other businesses where the operation is a standstill because of this global pandemic. Millionaires have multiple streams of income and businesses. Just like investments, you don’t buy stocks for one public listed company. You buy a few. Apart from that, you buy variants such as bonds, insurance, and perhaps blue chips. For me, it is the start of a new business venture on something that I enjoyed doing, designing. This would be my third stream of income, and hopefully, I get to build more through partnerships in the future.
I am launching a new t-shirt line that comes in Fall 2020. I have designed and curated a proper collection with a new movement in manufacturing towards sustainability. With the ever-evolving audience worldwide, I hope to make a difference. See you soon!
Years ago when I was in a relationship of 10 years, I got a Cartier Trinity ring that signifies our love. The ring represents our love, devotion, and, friendship. A piece of jewelry especially a ring is significant. When you are no longer with your partner, I think its only right that you return the ring. The symbol of the relationship is no longer valid. Therefore it is meaningless to keep it. I saw this beauty awhile ago. My god-sister have it with diamond. The Cartier Love ring denotes eternal love. That’s why the screw motif is all around pretty much like the Cartier Santos watch that I’ve purchased myself. Back then, it retail for $5,000. But now, its closer to $10,000. The price has doubled since 20 years ago. Investing in a dressed watch is like having a tuxedo in your wardrobe. You always need one dressed watch in case you need to attend a fancy dinner. Besides, you can never go wrong because of the value it holds. This time I decided to complete the set with the Love bracelet and the Love ring. The bracelet is about $5,600, and the ring is priced at $1450 which I will get for myself by Christmas. Though you are paying for the brand name, Cartier is coveted and it is treated like currency.
The romantic bangle was designed by Cartier’s Aldo Cipullo in 1969″
I purchased the slimmer new version of the bracelet. The cheaper one! The original cost closed to $9,000. I am not willing to part with my money yet. For the ring, I fancy myself an 18K gold Love. It is a wedding band however, it’s alright. It was indeed Love at first sight. The idea is that with your bracelet, which fixes onto the wrist with screws, you show the world that you are ‘locked into a relationship.’ The romantic bangle was designed by Cartier’s Aldo Cipullo in 1969: he was inspired by the idea of men locking up their wives in chastity belts to ensure they would remain faithful.
Although you are not in a relationship or marriage, you can still purchase this collection as love for oneself. You are worth it. You don’t need someone to buy for you because if you are independent and make your own money, you are everything. I have friends who rely on their partner to get fine-jewelry like so. The truth is, I find that they can’t even last a week without their other half should anything goes wrong. All my two times I’ve been in a relationship I learned one thing. By giving people trust is giving your life away. Trust is the most powerful thing a person can have power over you. It’s great if you found someone who is your soulmate. In such instances, such a situation is a fairytale. Searching and having love is a wonderful thing. A luxury that not everyone gets to experience.
