Mariah has moved on to BIGGER and better things since nasty break up with ex Nick Cannon. The beautiful singing diva is now engaged to her boyfriend James Packer. The two met at a movie premier in Aspen and begin dating last summer. The billionaire businessman popped the question last night with a enormous 35-carat custom designed platinum and diamond ring. I know you’re thinking what? 35-carat? yes you read absolutely correct 35-Carats! Thats Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian engagement rings COMBINED. It’s a couple of notches up from Elizabeth Taylor famous 33 carat diamond ring from her 5th husband Richard Burton.

James had none other than amazing jewelry designer Wilfredo Rosado who’s also a very close friend of Mariah’s of over 25 years to create this one of a kind beauty.  “I took the standards super high, and I wanted to create a ring that could not be measured up to,” says Rosado. The design and construction took two weeks and an “army of craftsman” that included measurement specialists and an expert well versed in the handling of such a large stone. “What is really most interesting about the ring are the proportions—the stone is so large, but we were able to create a beautiful balance with the overall simplicity of the design,” says Rosado. “It was about mixing simplicity with volume, which is very difficult to do.”Rosado also added on only two other (relatively) small, tapered baguettes on both sides of the center stone, he says after having conversations over the years with Carey about the styles she prefers that helped him with creating her perfect piece.  “She obviously has a strong point of view about what she likes,” Rosado says. “We have the same taste, and when it came down to it, I really wanted to create something for her that was about new beginnings. I wanted to give her something super sophisticated and something that took away all of the embellishments that a lot of people use when they design engagement rings these days. (Was that shade Mr Rosado? lol)  But it is epic. It’s an epic ring for an epic time in her life.” Such an amazing friend he is for keeping her wants and desires first.

Rosado wasn’t alone in making the decisions on this master piece. Rosado says, “We really only had just over two weeks to pull it off, working 12 hour a days, and I consulted with James about the ring three different times during the process”. “He wanted to create something very rare and very beautiful around this diamond he chose, and I followed his lead.” Rosado also says that he also left a small empty space on the backside of the band, as the soon to be hubby said that he wanted to eventually engrave a special sentiment to Carey. ( A million heart eyes lol )

James may have directed the designer but Rosado still felt a little creative pressure on a personal level. “This was the most challenging piece of jewelry I’ve ever designed,” he says. “I wanted to create the most gorgeous ring for my dear friend, but I also wanted to create the most stunning ring for one of the most iconic divas of our generation. I also wanted to make a ring that was perfect, in all the technical ways a ring should be. For me, it was super stressful. I didn’t want to fail her.” Im sure Mimi was more than floored with her new piece of jewelry, not for just its size and it being a one of one, but also for the sparkling new future it represents. Cheers to “ New Love And A New Beginning”! Congratulations Mimi

IT’S OKAY TO CRY AT THE BEGINNING|| Victoria Secret Cotton Pajama $52, Marc Blackwell Southern Hemisphere White Wine Glass $75, Talenti Caramel Sea Salt Gelato

Of course, when you go threw a fresh break up it cuts deep and you want to mourn but before you make reservations for one at Ruth Chris to order a dinner portion of lobster mac and cheese extra lobster topped with fresh parmesan cheese and 3 glasses of riesling. Sobbing in your best friend’s lap with a half gallon of Gelato carmel with salted peanut flavor and boring them to death with your break stories and all the things you don’t understand about what went wrong. Walking around in your favorite cotton pj’s hair in a messy bun and no make up playing your sad r&b break up songs. How about you skip that phase and look at the brighter picture and celebrate your new found freedom to explore true happiness! Let’s prepare for a new chapter a fresh beginning!

Where do you begin do you ask? How about we skip all the living and learning cliche’s and not complicate it. Do everything you missed out on when you were in a relationship. Catch up on some girl time with your friends. Have a girls night out like a chic dinner with your close girlfriends that you didn’t have time for because you were so stuck on working out your relationship. But don’t bring up your ex he’s the past and no one else cares about him anymore he doesn’t exist in your personal life so don’t make him a personal topic.

Another cure for the fresh break up bug is a night out on the town with your best friend! But before you go out that night be sure to go give yourself a day of pampering to get all of that grey gloom of sadness and break up off. Your skin is going to need that glow from Vitamin D so go get yourself a Vitamin D facial and exfoliate when you get home with your favorite sugar scrub and moisturize with your fruitiest body butter. Then that night beat your makeup to the gawds, throw on your sexiest Herve Bandage dress, do your hair in a sleek sexy pony tail or beach waves, nice sexy strappy sandal heels your, sexiest dior or gucci guilty perfume, and go out to your favorite lounge and dance the night away. Ready for a little a boo? Not a Beau (bae) but just someone to kiss with no strings attached find one and invest in some sexy lingerie with detachable strings ha ha. You deserve it. But the best way to curve a break up is to workout get that body back right and make him see what he missed and can’t ever have again. Go buy you a few chic and poppin nike workout gear and sneakers and go burn the sadness away.

 You are going to still feel some type of way if you see him or hear about him and a new found love interest but don’t worry about it too much or let it get to you too much because you are amazing. The person who is for you and believe me their are so many men who would love a woman like you in his life who will acknowledge your greatness. Who will treat you like the queen that you are who will send you your favorite roses just because its Saturday or your favorite chocolate covered strawberries from edible arrangements because he appreciate the sweetness you embody as a woman. Who will encourage you and support you in all of your dreams and endeavors. Who will buy you the newly released christian louboutin fall pumps because he thought it would look good on you. Or text you randomly to wear something nice tonight because he’s made reservations at your favorite restaurant. HE’S OUT THERE & you will meet him as soon as you’re ready! But until that time comes work on being a better you making yourself happy. What’s the best part of being single its now all about you and no one else and you’re now able to be stingy with your time. Your fabulous and single baby enjoy it
